Fun for the entire REGION with a bunch of local events to keep you entertained this weekend February 24 and 24!

Greater Sports Grounds - Tennis and Lawn Bowls

Spoiled for choice tonight at the Sports Ovals with activities at the tennis and lawn bowls club. 

Social tennis is at it again, enjoy a quit and responsible drink with your mates and have a hit and giggle on the court, with doubles or singles games available. Play as competitively or as non-competitively as you want, just a chance to work up a little sweat and enjoy the company of your mates with a tennis racket nearby! Bar and cafe open from 6pm. 

Just a stones throw away at the Lawn Bowls club there is a special, amateur competition that will be sure to draw a crowd. For $5 entry you can compete... placed in groups (with your mates or not its up to you!) and winners will continue to progress towards the finals. Winners will take away a share of the entire prize pool. Lawn bowls is ridiculously good fun, and a great chance to wind down with a beverage and a roll on the greens! Entry closes at 6pm. 


This will be fun! It's been done in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Paris, London, New York AROUND THE WORLD and now it's coming to Hopetoun this Saturday. 

Tickets are $25, most of which goes back to the local Hopetoun CRC which services the community, and for that you get LIVE MUSIC, markets, food, drinks and of course THE RUN. It's only 5km and you will be delighted to be caked in a rainbow of colours as you cross the finish line. 

The event runs from 3pm til 7pm, and it is free to come down to Jim McCulloch Park to watch the runners be pelted with colour. Entertainment from Grand Casual, Franzone and Bodes. 

Kyza (from Grand Casual) spoke about the event on the Sean for Breakfast Show, about 30 seconds into the audio below. 

Tickets available at www.hopetounwa.com. 

INDEX Exhibition - the Cannery Arts Centre

The latest at the Cannery is a multi-media, art spectacular... and INDEX opening night is this Saturday, with the inspired works carrying through until late March. 

Every sense is satisfied with the exhibition covering a range of different art. 

Annette Carmichael is the driving force behind the showcase, and she is joined by Nic Duncan (photographer), Kevin Draper (sculptor), Janine McCrum (textiles) and Janine Gentle (sound). 

Saturday night will present the different arts alongside a sound and dance display, which is sure to leave the audience in awe. 

Index is a FREE event, and a study on harmony and disruption and providing a response to escalating fear and terror in the world.
