COUNTRY CALLER FOOTBALL COVERAGE SPONSORED BY INTURA
By CAITLIN CROWLEY
RANGERS Ladies day is pushing ahead this weekend after torrential downpours saw the annual event at Toowoomba’s Gold Park postponed earlier this month.
It’s a relief for organisers, who have been looking forward to recognising the women involved in all areas of the club.
“Ladies Day is a chance for us to celebrate all the ladies in our club and there’s so many ladies that do so much work behind the scenes that don’t get noticed,” club spokeswoman Carissa Kemp said.
“We have our volunteers that do our line marshalling, all our canteen ladies, our vice president is female, so it’s a great day to celebrate all the wonderful women.”
Players in the Women’s 7s Emilee Cherry Cup have the round off, giving them a rare chance to enjoy a Saturday afternoon of food, drinks and live music from the sidelines.
It could be a much tougher day at the office for the Roma Echidnas A-grade men, taking on the top of the table Rangers men in the Risdon Cup clash at 3pm.
Ladies Days have become an integral part of the country sporting social scene and also provide an important fundraising opportunity for community clubs.
The Dalby Wheatmen Ladies Day is next Saturday June 4th, with Goondiwindi Ladies Day to follow on June 18th.
