Watch for the now famous ‘Broads on Quads’, a spectacle not to be missed. A 5.8 km run begins at 11 am, put on by the Sandspit Recreation Committee. The spectacular route will take runners and walkers around the ‘spit trail’ and finish off at the Loggers’ Sports grounds just in time for the kick-off choker set races to begin. The day will be packed with exciting events showcasing the skill, agility and competitive nature of all involved.Come on out and be part of the action! Everyone is welcome. There will be games, events and face-painting for the kids, a ball tournament, beer gardens, dunk tank, greasy and good-for-you concessions, and lots of friendly faces. The dance after dark will wrap up the event at the community hall with loud rockin’ tunes and designated drivers.See you in Sandspit on the 25th, with caulk boots and cameras in hand!
