Gardeners, manure on sale in South Langley

Spring is in the air for Brookswood rugby students and it’s not just on the rugby pitch. They’re thinking a year in advance as they get ready to hold a manure sales fundraiser April 11-12 at the school. The team is hoping monies raised will help foot the bill for the team to travel to southern California for a rugby tour in spring 2015.

“The tour is a great way to get the kids interested and promotes the game of rugby,” said Brookswood Secondary rugby co-ordinator Dino Camparmo.

This will be the fourth tour for the rugby team, who last ventured to New Zealand in 2001.

The tour is slated for March 20 to April 1, 2015, and the Brookswood Bobcats will play three different schools in the area between Los Angeles and San Diego.

Students will need to raise $1,600 each for the trip.

Next weekend’s mushroom manure sales will have 50-lb. bags available for $5/per bag. Those ordering 10 bags or more will have free delivery to the Brookswood area.

The sale is Friday, April 11, 4-7 p.m., and Saturday, April 12, 10 a.m. to noon, at Brookswood Secondary School, 20902 37A Ave., by the tennis courts.

A second team fundrasier, a dinner, fashion show and silent auction will be May 9 at the school. Cost of the event is $20 and features a beef dip dinner, the silent auction and a fashion show with clothes from Big Kahuna Sports.

For more details on either fundraiser or to place an order for the manure sales, call 604-530-2141.
