THE Mid North Coast chapter of the Men of League (MOL) will hold its first charity event for the year this Friday with an ambrose golf day at Forster Golf Club.
A number of past internationals will travel to the Great Lakes area for the event which raises much needed funds for the MOL organisation whose charter is to assist people involved with the game who are experiencing difficult times, or as MOL president Ron Coote says 'may have slipped through the cracks'.
Assistance may be in the form of supplying wheel chairs to those who have become disabled, assisting with house alterations or simply supplying a television set for someone who is living in communal accommodation.
MOL vice-president and leading NSW barrister, Jim Hall is hoping to participate in the day and will update those in attendance on any new initiatives the MOL organisation has instigated and what may be in the planning process.
Mr Hall himself was a long time player with Easts (Sydney Roosters), Canter bury Bankstown (Bulldogs), South Sydney and Penrith.
Another former Bulldog and ex-international Ron Costello will travel from his home at Shellharbour on the NSW South Coast to support the day while former NRL referee Mick Stone, now a Forster resident will have his usual and popular input into the event
Other NRL players who now live locally, John Baker (Wests and Parramatta), Chris Cordner and Terry McCartney (Bulldogs) and Dennis Tutty (Balmain) will also be in attendance.
The day will start with a barbecue breakfast before an 8am hit-off followed by the official luncheon from 1pm.
Participants can choose between the breakfast and golf, luncheon only or all three which includes a MOL gift pack and souvenir polo shirt courtesy of Mick Perry Concreting and Tooheys.
All bookings can be made at Forster Golf Club reception.
