The First Masters RL Festival of 2017

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
