Thargomindah Multi-Sport Try Outs score funding

May 27, 2022

In a boost to local sport and the regional economy, Bulloo Shire Council has been awarded $4,200 for the Thargomindah Multi-Sport Try Outs.

Member for Maranoa David Littleproud said the funding, under Tranche 4 of the Regional Sport Events Fund, would support regional sport while also helping to boost local economies by attracting more visitors to regional areas to attend sporting events.

“Thargomindah’s Try Outs in early June, are about encouraging people of all ages to come and participate in a range of sport activities like soccer, touch football, cricket and futsal,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Sport helps bring together communities across Maranoa and we are committed to helping people reconnect and celebrate through sport.

“We’ve seen applications for events range from ‘come and try days’ to larger events such as state sporting championships that will engage the broader community and have flow on effects for local businesses,” Mr Littleproud said.
