WITH the 2011 season drawing to a close in most districts throughout Queensland country and only the QRL Intrust Super Cup grand final to be played this Sunday at Suncorp Stadium, I think all leagues can be quite satisfied with their season's efforts.

It has been a good season, especially considering the huge climatic conditions that hit the area earlier in the year and the economic and financial restraints imposed on supporters and spectators from these events.

Dates to remember for these meetings are Co Bundaberg Juniors 1pm Sunday, October 30, and Bundaberg Seniors 10am Sunday, November 6.

This is a great innovation by Western Suburbs Juniors and it is a very rewarding gesture to recognise such a great clubman and volunteer for all his years of service, on and off the field.

The games will start at 8am on Saturday and Sunday, finishing about 5pm on Saturday and 2pm on Sunday.

Teams will play at least three games on Saturday and two on Sunday.

Games will be two 15-minutes halves, with a five-minute break to change ends and a five-minute break between games, while the final at 1pm Sunday between the top two teams will be two 20-minute halves.

Teams from Bundaberg, Fraser Coast, Central Burnett and South West leagues have nominated for the carnival.

Congratulations and best wishes to the Western Suburbs Juniors for the weekend.
