Caloundra Open Day Carnival*
North St Caloundra
*Held in conjunction with USCAC for Open events
The first events will start at 8.15am and please ensure you arrive at least 30mins before your events.
Athletes U7 to Open, yes mum and dads as well, can compete in up to 6 events. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals will be awarded.
Under 6 athletes as per LAQ policy can compete in up to 4 events and will be awarded a participation medal.
The carnival is not compulsory but the athletes, including parents who do compete, all have a great day, testing their skills and abilities against other athletes from many centres in South East Queensland.
The open events are a time for the parents and older siblings and guardians to show off their athletic skills and it can get quite competitive amongst some of them, especially in the Open Javelin and 100m dash.
As the day is designed around participation and having fun.... we don't allow protests and the judges decision is final.
This is our major fundraiser of the year and there is an enormous amount of time and effort that goes into planning and running a carnival of this size but it is a great experience for all those involved. And EVERYONE leaves with a smile!!!!
Volunteers are needed on and before the big day.
For field preparation, setting up the shade tents and other equipment, recording, cooking on the BBQ, helping in the canteen, packing up at the end of the day and so on.
So please put your hand to ensure this years Open Day is the best yet!
