Another year and another successful Stawell Gift adventure for MBD.

Thank you to everyone who played a part in an extremely enjoyable Easter weekend. Special mention to massage therapist Scott Smith for his work over the 4 days, Neil Blizzard for his unwavering support of our squad including the marquee and Sue Blizzard for the photos.

Also thank you to the Stawell Athletics Club for their generosity and amazing effort they put into making the Stawell Gift carnival so special and iconic.
