1968 premiership team to celebrate 50 years

This Saturday, July 14, the Grenfell Panthers will host a luncheon to celebrate 50 years since the club’s first premiership win.

The luncheon will take place at 12:15pm for a 1pm start at the Bowling Club. 

This event is raising funds for the club and to honour Grenfell’s Premiership victory against Young in 1968.

After the luncheon guest will be encouraged to adjourn to RB Bembrick Field to watch the club’s juniors host a kids v dads game at 2pm followed by the Grenfell  v West Wyalong match at 3.15pm.

Cost for the luncheon will be $50 per person which includes a 2 course lunch.

The format will be pre-luncheon drinks at 12.15pm followed by lunch at 1pm. 

This will be a great opportunity for many to renew friendships and links with our great club.

Saturday will also see the Club’s annual Ladies Day at RB Bembrick Field. 

Cost is $15 per person (free for ladies) which includes two complimentary drinks, food and rugby. RSVP to Josh on 0427951125 by July 11.
