THE Bunnan Polocrosse Club has excelled again hosting a successful carnival in the dust at the Rosebrook Polocrosse Grounds in Muswellbrook on April 6 and 7.
34 teams descended upon the club's home carnival, with over 200 competitors and 300 horses galloping their way into games on both Saturday and Sunday. Players came from near and far, with competitors from local areas such as Muswellbrook, Maitland and Quirindi and from as far as Guyra, Narrabri and Walcha.
One of the most heated competitions of the carnival was the A open Round Robin, with each of the four teams, Quirindi, Cassilis, Bunnan and Gulgong, coming close to the title. In the end the final winner was decided in a countback, with Cassilis narrowly defeating the home team Bunnan.

Wow another carnival done for 2019. We had a great role up of teams, including some excited and enthusiastic Blue Bandage Players.
Our carnival was held on the 23rd and 24th of March at the Bungendore showgrounds, the carnival attracted 31 teams. The competition was hotly contested in Open, Womens, juniors, Subbies and a Master’s competitions. We also held the Blue Bandage over the weekend. We held 2 sessions on Saturday and a session on Sunday morning. We received great feed back from them all, saying they will be attending many more blue bandage weekends.
Thank you to all our sponsors that make our carnival possible and those who travelled from near and far to support us.
