Parkes Spacemen Rugby League Club held a fundraising day at the Parkes Golf Club.
60 people from different sporting backgrounds enjoyed a great day of golf with special guest, former NSW and Australian captain and current NSW State of Origin coach, Laurie Daley gracing the fairways.
Laurie rode around in a cart, playing a hole with one group before moving on to another.
Country Rugby League Chairman Jock Colley and former Cronulla and Canterbury player Michael Sullivan were just a few of the participants who enjoyed the day.
Sullivan now captain-coaches Orange Cyms in the group 10 competition, leading a contingent of Cyms players to support the Spacemen.
The event was won by well known Parkes sportsmen, Laurie Wakefield snr, Laurie Wakefield jnr and Jacob Symington.
Before presenting the winners with their prizes, Daley spoke passionately about his love for NSW and his hopes for next year’s State of Origin series.
He went on to speak about how players need to conduct themselves properly on and off the field to get the most out of rugby league, whether they play for Parkes, Penrith, NSW or Australia.
The Spacemen would like thank to Parkes Golf Club and in particular Paul Thomas for their support of the day that raised around $1500 for the football club.
They would also like to thank everyone who supported the day by playing or sponsoring the event.
Denis Moran and Graham Cole will be out and about over the next few weeks, selling tickets in the Spacemen’s Major Raffle.
The prize is a trip to the Indigenous All-Stars v NRL All-Stars match at Suncorp stadium in Brisbane.
The prize includes a $500 travel voucher, accommodation and four tickets to the game.
All proceeds go to the day to day expenses of running the football club.
The Spacemen will commence pre-season training towards the end of January in the hopes of a very successful season.
