The First Masters RL Festival of 2017 will take place on Sat 22nd April at Grassmoor Sports Centre , Strawberry How Road, COCKERMOUTH ,CA13 9XQ
Masters Rugby League is a modified rules version of the game for over 35s with the focus being on Participation , Fund and the Social interaction in the bar afterwards .
Its proving very popular with ex players with 6 teams in Cumbria alone and fits very well with government policy on Active Lifestyle for Older people, we have two players in the West Cumbria team aged 70+
For the Cockermouth event there are 12 teams attending ,with anywhere up to 200 players coming from the North east , Yorkshire , Lancashire, Cumbria and potentially two guest players from the Home counties .There are a quite a number who are making a weekend of it and have booked accommodation in the area .
I was asking if this is something the Chamber might be able to support by
1 Putting some promotions special offers on in the Town Centre to keep some of the visiting teams in the Town after the Festival has concluded
2 Would any business be interested in taking out an ad in the festival Programme . Only £25 for a 1/4 page on A5 size page .
Once again thanks for any help you can offer . I look forward to hearing from you
