What's on in Coffs this weekend

COFFS HARBOUR will be showcased to the rest of the country this weekend, when Fox Sports will be in town to film the Oztag Championships at BCU International Stadium. And you can be a part of the action.

Nearly 1200 players from 80 teams will be in Coffs Harbour for the Championships between November 7 and 8, as well as around 300 officials and supporters.

The tournament is being sponsored by GU energy gel, Byron Bay Brewery and the Coffs Hotel.

Oztag tournament director Bill Harrigan said the Championships will be shown on Fox Sports in December 2008.

Last year Coffs Harbour hosted the three major Oztag competitions - the NSW State Cup, the first State of Origin and the Australian Championships. This year the BCU Stadium has already played host to the NSW Senior State Cup andState of Origin Series.

Games for the Australian National Championships will begin on Friday, November 7, at 12 noon and continue until 6pm. On Saturday, games will run from 9am to 6.30pm and on Sunday from 8.30am to 5pm. Entry is free and all are welcome.

If touch footy's not your thing, maybe all in poker is.

The Coffs Harbour Catholic Club is hosting a night for all those budding cardsharks out there.

The evening starts at 5.30pm and anyone is welcome to join in the fun. For more information please phone the Coffs Catholic Club on (02) 6652 1477.

And there's no better way to round of your weekend than with some good ol' Country Music at Coffs Harbour Ex Services Club. Live music starts in the Vista Lounge from 6pm.

For more information including start and finish times please phone (02) 6652 3888 or visit www.cex.com.au.
