Australian Legends of League come to Oakey
Almost 4000 spectators filled the Trevor Mickleborough Oval in Oakey on Saturday the 7th of October to witness the Legends of League spectacular, with an exhibition game between the Australians Legends of League and the Oakey Bears All Stars
A few of our CWA House residents braved inclement weather, with the assistance of Madonna and a couple of trusty volunteers, to watch some of the football matches played on the day. Teams that played before the big match included Oakey Primary & St Monica’s, Oakey High & Goondiwindi High, the Ipswich Rock Wallabies & St George BeerBellys Masters, Natives Brisbane & The Dos Womens, The Dos V Oakey Red Belly Blacks Mens, and Goondir/DDHHS & Pacific Nation in Mens & Women. There was also some terrific footy by all the Under 8 Teams.
In the end, though, the weather was the main winner, with cold feet sending the residents back for a warm afternoon tea, but not before they got to enjoy the atmosphere and amazing support of the event by the Oakey community.
Vera enjoyed watching some of the younger players with their ball on the sidelines, and had a great time for a non-football fan, but the main ladies’ match was enjoyed greatly by Lorna and Keith before their cold feet sent them home.
Other staff volunteering on the day included Cassandra and Alan, who both participate in Oakey Bears functions regularly, and Emily who made an appearance to check on the residents before heading out to party.
