Logger Sports Day going ahead July 28

Logger Sports Day is a go! Enough people came out to a recent meeting that the committee can go ahead with the event again this summer, says Moresby Island Management Committee chair Gail Henry.
Ms Henry said a number of younger folk in Sandspit have stepped up to take over specific functions, but there is always a need for more volunteers.
The date has been set for July 28. The fire department is running the dance and the recreation committee is running the beer garden at the event.
Ms Henry said they are still not sure whether the ball tournament will go ahead, as there isn’t a ball team in Sandspit at the moment.
The next formal meeting is on June 20, but with only 400 people in Sandspit, Ms Henry says people are checking in with each other all the time.
“We were a little worried,” she said about whether there was enough interest to continue the community event, which has been running for more than 50 years. But now that energy has been renewed, it’s time to let the logs roll.
