THE Bega Roosters Minor Rugby League Football Club raffle is set to sizzle.
Kevin Hinton from Glen Mia Gas has donated a barbecue as the major prize for the club’s raffle.
Club president Norm Griffin said he was thankful to Hinton for his continued support.
“He also sponsors Leaguesafe and first aid jerseys for the minor league club,” Griffin said.
Griffin said the raffle tickets would be available from tomorrow at the club’s first round games against Eden.
“Tickets will be on sale for a few weeks, the barbecue is the major prize and we have a number of items generously donated by local businesses.”
Some of the proceeds will support the club, with the rest of the funds to support the refit of the Bega Rec Ground’s kiosk.
Griffin said the club is happy to take more donations.
“If local businesses would like to donate, please contact us on 0400 024 300,” he said.
Meanwhile, Griffin said he was delighted to see the minor league season launch after a successful exhibition round and Bibbenluke Carnival.
“The Roosters will play the Eden Tigers tomorrow with games to kick off from 9am for the under 7s and 8s,” Griffin said.
“We’re looking forward to another exciting season of junior rugby league.”
The final match for the juniors will be the under 16s clash from 2.30pm at the Bega Rec Ground with senior games to follow.
The competition is looking strong this year Griffin said, with strong numbers signing up in each age group.
However, the club is seeking interested girls for the minor league-tag competition.
“Any girls aged between 12 and 16 are invited to head along to spectate at 10.50 am,” Griffin said.
The minor league-tag competition is a junior version of the Group 16 league-tag, which has been picked up by several minor league clubs this year.
Registrations can be made by calling the club.
“Anyone interested can contact Connie Picker on 0448 925 354,” Griffin said.
Under 18s will take the field from 4.30pm before the league-tag and reserve grade games.
Griffin said despite the destruction of the kiosk, fans would not go hungry.
“We will be running a barbecue at the ground,” he said.
