Coffs' clubs to join celebrations
WITH Coffs Harbour celebrating its 150th year in 2011, Coffs Harbour Sports Advisory Council (COFFSAC) president Phil Crofts is hoping local sporting organisations become an integral part of the celebrations.
“This year marks the sesquicentenary of Coffs Harbour, and as the year unfolds, there will be a variety of events to help celebrate that milestone and we hope that sport can be a part of that ongoing celebration, so this is an invitation for your sport to become involved,” Crofts said.
“A Coffs Harbour Sesquicentenary Committee is in operation and they have asked that any major events in sport become part of the celebrations.”
The sesquicentenary committee is comprised of Malcolm McLeod, Kathy Abell, Terri Beckhouse, Dave Senior, Anne Blair, Lorraine Tibbs, Nan Cowling, Jenny Oloman, Fran Stevenson and Courtney Tune.
Crofts has been involved with many sports in the region over a long period of time and he believes a lot of sports have plenty to offer as far as this year’s celebrations are concerned.
With that in mind he’s encouraging all sporting bodies to get in contact with the sesquicentenary committee.
“At this point, if you think your sport has anything to offer, I urge you to contact Malcolm McLeod on his work phone number of 6648 4840,” he said.
“Alternately, I understand that registration of sporting events can be made through the CHCC website.”
