Touch carnival a test of strength

SUNSHINE Coast touch player Gary Madders is organising an inter-touch challenge and is appealing for Gympie senior players to get involved.

The challenge, which is for teams from associations, will take place at Maryborough.

“This is a fun carnival for every-day players,” Madders said. “You don’t have to be a representative player to compete.”

Divisions include mixed open, senior open (30 years and over) and masters open (40 years and over).

Gympie Touch is considering organising a bus.

Players can signal their interest by contacting Kelly Jeffries on 0419 706 577.

Flooding swamps touch fixtures

Gympie junior and senior touch players will wait another week before diving across the try lines at Albert Park, with today’s matches cancelled.

Gympie Touch Association president Ian Sami made the call yesterday.

Sami said the touch fields had been submerged twice with flood waters over the past week.

Touch joins a growing number of Gympie sporting clubs grounded due to the wet conditions.

Sami said he hoped games would resume next week.
