Rugby League Trial Games- Cherbourg
League fans who've been feeling a bit left out this year can start to get back into the swing of things today with four pre-season trial matches being held at Jack O'Chin Oval at the end of Broadway Street, Cherbourg. The action will kick off at 12:50pm with an U13s match between the Cherbourg Hornets and Sunshine Coast Bunyas. This will be followed at 2:10pm with an U15s match between South Burnett Development and the Sunshine Coast Bunyas, and then a 3:30pm with an U17s clash between the Cherbourg Hornets and the Sunshine Coast Bunyas. After this, the day will end with an A-grade match between the Hornets and Sunshine Coast Bunyas at 4:50pm. Spectators are very welcome but should remember that alcohol restrictions apply in Cherbourg, and COVID Safe conditions apply on the grounds.
Goomeri Food Vans Night
Goomeri will be holding another of their new Food Van Nights from 5:00pm to around 8:00pm this evening at Goomeri's Market Square behind Joe's Grand Hotel. The event will feature a range of food vans from Gympie and the Sunshine Coast offering dishes that are usually unavailable locally (unless you cook them yourself), and it's being run as a fund-raiser for the Goomeri Pumpkin Festival. This is a family friendly, pet friendly and COVID Safe outing with plenty of chairs and tables for you to eat dinner at. There's also no admission charge and everyone is welcome!
AFL Grand Final
The AFL Grand Final will be played at the Gabba in Brisbane tonight, and if you can't get tickets you'll need to watch the match on a big screen. Most South Burnett clubs and pubs that are open for trading will be switching at least one of their TVs over to the match tonight (some, more than one) and if you like fast-paced footy, the clash between Richmond and Geelong should be a corker.
Byte Nite At The Pool - Murgon
The South Burnett PCYC will be hosting a Byte Nite for Murgon and Cherbourg youngsters at Murgon's Jubilee Swimming Pool in Gore Street from 5:00pm to around 8:00pm tonight. Children can play a range of fun and entertaining games and pursue other amusements for free during the course of the evening, and get a dinner as well as a ride home afterwards if they need one, all under the supervision of local volunteers. Byte Nite is an initiative of the PCYC and Murgon Business and Development Association to tackle youth crime in the district by giving youngsters something to do on a Saturday night, and anyone who'd like to volunteer to help this community-driven initiative in any way should contact Sgt Rene Bond at the PCYC on (07) 4168-1889 for more information. Note: Due to COVID Safe restrictions this event is limited to a maximum of 80 people.
Saturday Cricket
Providing the weather holds up, the South Burnett's cricketers will be playing in Kingaroy and Murgon today.

In B Grade, Kingaroy Services will play Nanango's Scorpions at Taabinga State School in Kingaroy Street, Kingaroy at 12:30pm (the Kumbia Rattlers v Murgon Diggers match which was to have been held at the Kumbia cricket grounds in Gordon Street and the Wondai vs Woorolin match which was to have been held at Murgon have both been washed out - Cherbourg has the bye).
