The Toyota Cowboys’ NRL squad will meet their members and fans to kick off the club’s 20th anniversary celebrations at the annual Community Day on Sunday 15 February.
The event will be open to the public in the air-conditioned comfort of Townsville RSL Stadium and offer two hours of free entertainment, plus the chance to pick up a copy of the Cowboys’ official 2015 team poster.
It will also be a fantastic opportunity to welcome the newest Cowboys – Ben Hannant, Kelepi Tanginoa, Jake Granville and Kyle McConnell – as well as meet most of the players who took the club to the NRL finals for the fourth straight year in 2014, including co-captains Matt Scott and Johnathan Thurston.
Along with the Cowboys coaching staff, they will be introduced on stage by compere Glenn “Minty” Mintern from 4TOFM and then be available to sign autographs throughout the two hours.
The packed Community Day program includes rugby league skills coaching clinics with the Cowboys’ development team, fun activities for kids, activities and giveaways provided by the club’s corporate partners and free competitions, plus performances by the Spirit cheersquad and 1RAR band.
Membership and merchandise, including the club’s new jersey range featuring the special 20th anniversary and Defence Force jerseys, will be on sale, and you can sign up as a 2015 season member on the day to go in the draw to win two tickets to the Captains’ Lounge corporate area at the Cowboys v Roosters clash in round one.
“The fact that our Community Day is only just over a month away is a real sign that the season isn’t far away,” membership ambassador Matt Scott said.
“We always get a good turnout and the players really enjoy the opportunity to meet the members and supporters who help make our club what it is.”
The Community Day will start at 2pm and run through until 4pm – entry is free.
