The big guns came to Mackay this morning to shoot some hoops
I'd love a cheque for close to $300,000.
That's the size of one that got handed over this morning at Mackay Basketball.
The deputy PM was in town with our own Member for Dawson George Christensen to announce the big news.
He said "..It was great to have Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack in Mackay to visit Mackay Basketball Stadium after the Morrison Liberal National Government committed $291,000 to fund the construction of a permanent seating grandstand. This upgrade will not only provide jobs for locals during the construction stage, but will help attract more prestigious competitions to the region"
We can't wait until the new stands are finished and we can get into the first ever NBL1 season in Mackay with our McDonald's Meteors and Global Product Search Meteorettes on the courts.
