SOLOGINKIN OVAL AMENITIES GRAND OPENING

In May 2019 we celebrated the Grand Opening of the new amenities building at Sologinkin Oval, officially opened by Mackay Mayor Greg Williamson. This was our most ambitious and challenging project to date, costing in the vicinity of $2.5 million dollars, fully funded by Magpies Sporting Club with no government grants or assistance.

THE NEW SOLOGINKIN OVAL AMENITIES

The facilities have a strong focus on meeting the needs of female sporting participants including gender friendly changeroom with floor to ceiling showers, as well as a gym, ice baths and dedicated room to add spa’s. Four change rooms service the field, including individual change rooms for referees. The facilities are of state competition standard, we consulted not only with our own stakeholders in Magpies Rugby League Club and Magpies Football Club, but with Queensland Rugby League and Football Queensland. The design come from the desks of BSPN Architecture and had been 5 years in the making; the project was at first postponed due to the opportunity to buy back the club from the landlord in 2015.

MAGPIE OF THE YEAR

Magpie of the year is an annual event, awarding sporting excellence within Magpies affiliated sporting clubs.  Players are awarded with bronze, silver or gold medallions based on the level of achievement reached within their sport.  Each year an outstanding Magpies player wins the gold medal award for excelling in their sport at a representative level, possessing leadership qualities, displaying sportsmanship, team commitment and club loyalty.  The coveted Magpie of the Year award honours a Magpies volunteer or adminstrator for their considerable contribution to Magpies over at least 5 years.

MAGPIE OF THE YEAR 2019

Over 100 Magpies sports players were awarded for their Sporting Contributions and Excellence during the annual Magpie of the Year ceremony Friday 25th October 2019, attended by special guest NRL Legend Brent Tate.

The flagship award of Magpie of the year went to Brad Zurvas, honouring his dedication and commitment to Magpies Cricket Club.  Runners up for the Magpie of the Year award were Lesa Arthur from Magpies Junior and Senior Rugby League Clubs and Wendy Baynton from Magpies Netball Club.  The Gold Medal award was presented to Tyler Gardiner from Magpies Senior Rugby League Club.  Tyler is a very talented A-Grade Magpies Rugby League player, with a high work ethic and great leadership qualities.  Runners up for the Magpie of the Year award were Jemma Carey from Magpies Netball Club and Seth Sologinkin from Magpies Junior Rugby League Club.

Amongst the sports awards Magpies Sporting Clubs Chairman Ray Golding presented donation cheques to CQ Rescue, Surf Life Saving Mackay, Cancer Council, Royal Flying Doctors and Buy a Bale, from money raised through new memberships and staff donations.
