Mt Barker Christmas Pageant – Saturday 1 December 2018, 10am
We would love to see as many players/coaches/team managers/supporters involved in the pageant this year. It’s a great way to showcase our club to the community. Basketball is very exciting in the community lately with the opening of the new St Francis de Sales Community Sports Facility! Please arrive at the Mt Barker Rec Centre on the oval at 10am as the pageant commences at 10.30am (unfortunately we don’t get advised of our float number until the morning of the pageant) dressed in your playing uniform or Mavs apparel items. Bring along a ball to bounce along the pageant route. There will be handouts and lollies supplied by the club to give out to the spectators. There will be a prize for the team with the most attendees.
