Australia Day date for beach volleyball
THE annual Minnie Water-Wolli Surf Lifesaving Club's annual beach volley ball day scheduled for this Sunday has been transferred to Australia Day (Thursday, January 26).
Organisers elected to transfer the popular event due to inclement weather over the past fortnight.
Conducted at Nip Welsh Park, Minnie Water, the volley ball competition comprises mixed teams of five players with a minimum of two females per team.
All competing teams are paired off in round one with round winners placed in Division A and losers in Division B for round two.
Knockout conditions leading into the respective finals then apply.
Entry is $35 per team and teams must be registered by 9am.
Winners and runner-up's in each division will receive gift vouchers and sponsors merchandise.
As part of the entertainment for children and families, a sand modelling competition will be held in conjunction with the volley ball competition.
Three categories apply - five-year-old's and under, 10-year-old's and under and 15-year-old's and under.
In previous years the day has proven extremely popular with locals, visitors and holiday makers in the area who are treated to a fun day by the sea side with lots of laughs and keen competition.
A barbecue will be provided by the Clarence Valley Club and a seafood raffle will also take place.
