LAST weekend the first polocrosse carnival of the season in the Hunter Zone was hosted by Quirindi.
The Bunnan Polocrosse Club fielded a massive seven teams at the carnival, which saw 58 teams in attendance.
Bunnan had an extremely successful weekend where both the A Grade Men and the A Grade Women played in the finals on Sunday afternoon.
Our A Grade women were runner up to Quirindi. Well done Rach & Sarah Finlayson, Leith Pryor (Best No.3), Erica Mitchell, Abbey & Kaylene Wilson.
The A Grade Men went down by one goal in their final (and had the ball in their racquet when the final bell went). Thanks for the excellent polocrosse Ricky Mitchell, Michael Hockings, Brett Pryor, Mitch Wamsley and his sub Chris Green, Brad Wamsley (Best No.2) & Joe Wamsley (Best No.3).
Our A Grade Juniors were runner up. Congrats Clancy Martin, Jorji Taffe, Nicole Martin, Jack Hamilton, Gus & Jillie Rose.

Sub Junior Best No.1 and Champion Sub Junior Horse of the Carnival went to Emily Wamsley & Star Dust.

Champion Horse of the Carnival, sponsored by Debbie & Mark Palmer and winning a service to Palmer's El Condo went to Joe Wamsley & his brilliant mare Lulu’s Gift.
The Quirindi carnival was the first time new players Grant Miles, Ryan Bagnall, Emily Wright, Jacqui Simpson, Ellie Barnett and Ben Griffiths have pulled on a red, blue and yellow shirt and played for Bunnan. Welcome to the club, it's great to see the club and the sport growing.
