TOP 5: Weekend tips for the Bega Valley

1. Bega Bombers v Narooma Lions

The Bombers are charging into finals contention, but they have to get past the visiting Lions under lights Friday night.

A Bega win would statistically knock the Lions out of contention so senior coach Matt Fleet expects the visitors will play with an intensity and desperation not yet seen by the Bombers. 

The game starts at 7pm at the Bega Showground, click here for the full preview.

2. Game On at Fling

See the young members of YFling in action in their latest production.

Game On’s movement motives have come from children’s game ideas like Twister, snap, hop-scotch and chess.

All cast members have had an opportunity to contribute to the creative content, and with scenes like Super Mario Brothers there is no shortage of fun on stage!

With shows on Saturday and Sunday, click here for more info and ticket details.

3. Plant a tree!

Sunday is National Tree Day, an annual initiative of Planet Ark and the largest community tree planting event in the country.

Get out in the fresh air and dig your hands in the soil and be at one with nature.

There are several community plantings organised - check treeday.planetark.org for registered events - but there’s nothing stopping you from making a day of it with your kids.

4. Korean War commemoration

It has been 61 years since the end of the Korean War.

Pay tribute to our service men and women with an informal commemorative service this Sunday at the Bega War Memorial Gate, 11am.

5. Roosters’ Devil of a challenge

It’s Bega v Narooma again, this time in Group 16 rugby league.
