Carnarvon Cubs take out the Children's Float division

VICE president of the Carnarvon Cubs, Bruce Proud was absolutely stoked with the club's win in the Children's Float division at the Easter in the Country WATPAC parade.

The player proudly donned their Cub's gear, as they waved to the thousands who had turned up on McDowall St for the Easter parade.

Mr Proud believes the float was a great way to promote the junior rugby league club which is now in its third year.

"The club is a great way to get kids involved in sport and foster a love for the game of rugby league,” Mr Proud said.

The float took a day and a half to make, with eight volunteer workers working around the clock to make sure it was eye-catching, while representing the club's values.

The fledging club currently has around 150 players which are made up of school kids in the Maranoa district.

The under six and under eight teams are very strong and the club hopes to expand even further as they gain momentum.

"All our coaches and helpers are volunteers and we really appreciate their hard work in helping the club running smoothly,” Mr Proud said.

The Cubs took home $1500 for winning the Children's Division, as well as commendation from festival president, Jenny Flynn.

"The kids from the Carnarvon Cubs, they will be able to talk about when they were on that float for years to come.

"They are the reason we love having so many people participate in Easter in the Country.”
