Whitsunday Regional Council today approved sponsorship of $700 Proserpine Whitsunday Junior Rugby League Club Inc. to support their hosting of the Paul Bowman Challenge Junior Rugby League Carnival on 19 and 20 September 2015.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said Council is pleased to sponsor the Paul Bowman Challenge which is an important annual event on the State Junior Rugby League calendar attracting more than 3000 visitors to the Whitsundays from across Queensland.
“The carnival is held on the weekend of the 19 and 20 September which is the first weekend of the school holidays and a great opportunity for anyone attending to extend their stay and enjoy what our beautiful region has to offer,” Mayor Whitney said.
“Council’s sponsorship will assist in offsetting expenses associated with running the carnival including payments for game officials, food and beverage and first aid provisions and player packs,” she said.
“It is a great opportunity for our local young rugby players to test their skills against other clubs and players in Queensland; we are very happy to be able to support this event.”
