Exhibition match: Outback Barbarians vs Titans, July 5th 7pm @ Titans Field

Bit of history: The Outback Barbarians were first formed in the late 1980’s in Rockhampton, Central Queensland and continued on until the early 1990’s when they ceased to exist due to lack of volunteers to organise them.  They originally toured Europe, England, Ireland New Zealand and Fiji. In 2006 I was out at Longreach Western Queensland and was speaking with the then president of Queensland Country Rugby, Boyd Curran and asked him where there was a pathway for country players who did not want to go to the cities to further their playing careers.  The majority of the players are farmers, cattlemen, graziers or occupations associated with the cattle and farming industries.    We try to bring single players only but occasionally a married man sneaks away.  He suggested the Outback Barbarians format.  Well the rest is history after that.  In 2008 we invited a group of country players to tour to the US.  We flew to Vancouver and then got a bus to Seattle.  Then we went to Missoula, Montana for the Maggotfest and on to Las Vegas after that, San Diego and home.  In 2010 we again went to Dallas, Houston, New Orleans then up the centre the Maggotfest but toured different cities.  2012 the same but went to New York, Boston and across the top to Missoula and then across to San Francisco. 2012 saw us return to the US and played mainly in the central area.  2014 (this is when we picked up Ryan Boers of Red Deer fame whom we met at the Maggotfest in 2012 as he promised to teach us a bit about rugby) and we went to New Orleans, Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, Nashville, Denver, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, San Diego...
Dues are HOW much?

Dues are HOW much?

Our Events Coordinator Executive Member recently posted this in all the Facebook groups. For more information on contributing to Titans events and earning credits towards your own dues or go, check this out. Quoted here: So I am posting this after speaking with several active players in recent weeks. It’s a plea of sorts!!! There is a minimal base of active players working events at the Westerner or things like last week’s Casino. But this about the positive aspect & how we each need to pitch in, as well as how working events can benefit YOU. It’s obvious that we are lucky to have the Westerner to help support our facility, but our dues although on par with other clubs, are still not just buttons & beach rocks. So as requested here is how working the Westerner can help YOU. Regular Member Dues = $550 (Students, First Year Players & Out of Towners get a discount off the top but everything else in this post is for you too) For every event you work you get $6/hr in credits and after you work 6 events in one year (March to March) you automatically receive $100 off PLUS the $6/hr earned. Average event is 3-5hrs so we will base my example on 4hrs or $24/event. 6 Event Dues (-$100 – $144) = $306 10 Event Dues (-$100 – $240) = $210 12 Event Dues (-$100 – $288) = $162 15 Event Dues (-$100 – $360) = $90 20 Event Dues (-$100 – $480) = Dues are Paid & $30 in credits left over for clothing, club events or tourneys Including Rebels...
