Boyne Bandits short on funds

THEY’VE got the cart and the team, now all they need is the money to get to the start line of the 2010 Pushcart Challenge.

The Boyne Bandits team is in urgent need of sponsorship in a bid to contest next month’s Maryborough Technology Challenge.

It is the first year the team, made up of 10 students from Boyne Island State School, has contested the challenge which will be raced on September 11.

Boyne Island State School principal Michael Hurst said the team was in need of a sponsor to assist with funding the construction of the cart, obtaining safety equipment and, if possible, team shirts.

Mr Hurst said in return for this generosity, business names would be fully advertised on the cart, shirt and in the school’s newsletter as it tracks the team’s progress.

As part of the Pushcart Challenge, teams are required to assemble a pushcart to compete in obstacle, sprint and endurance courses.

They must also be able to disassemble the pushcart, with all pieces required to fit in a one metre by 10 millimetre slot.

Anyone who can assist with funding is asked to phone the school office on 4979 9333.
