Giants get set for a big knock

INDUSTRY bragging rights are up for grabs, and all it will take to decide the winner is two bats, a ball, and stumps.

It’s on again this summer as six of Gladstone’s industrial giants take to the cricket field in the 2010 Industries of Gladstone 20/20 cricket day.

Teams comprising employee’s from QAL, BSL, Orica, Cement Australia, Rio Tinto Yarwun and the Gladstone Port Corporation will be representing their companies, as they strive to prove just who the champion cricketing site is in Gladstone.

The day is hosted by the Boyne Tannum Cricket Club at BITS oval next Saturday, September 18 and features three Twenty20 cricket games with Orica taking on GPC to start the day.

The second game will have the Cement Aust. Team playing Rio Tinto Yarwun, followed by defending champions and current trophy holder’s QAL up against fierce rivals BSL.

BITS event coordinator Nev Judd says after last years great response, this year’s event is bigger.

With 15 Bash for Cash sponsors, plus sponsorship from Rio Tinto for kid’s entertainment, this year there is something for the whole family.

“This is really growing into a fantastic day, not only for the community, but also as a fundraising and charity event,” Judd said.

The McGrath foundation is just one of the charities that will benefit.
