Laurie Daley to attend Casino Cougars nostalgic celebrations

BLUES coach Laurie Daley and other famous faces will help one of the region's footy club's nostalgic celebrations on November 15 and 16.

The Casino Cougars club is hosting a reunion for players and officials of yesteryear.

Daley and other big name NRL figures will attend the event, which is part of two days of memorable sporting commemorations for the club.

David O'Connor, who is assisting arrangements for the reunion, said he could not wait for festivities to start.

"I've said to everyone I've invited so far, 'if you have a pulse, you are coming'," he said.

"There's a lot of history involved with the club. I think we will have a lovely time reminiscing and seeing the old faces.

"It will be a great event."

"Some of the people coming we may not have seen for 40 years. It will be great to catch up with them all."

Celebrations will start on Friday, November 15 at that day's Casino greyhound meetings.

Early arrivals can attend racing at the Queen Elizabeth Park track, which will be dedicated to the club.

Saturday will see events held at the Casino Golf and the RSM Bowls clubs, with light-hearted action on offer.

The event's main attraction will be held later that evening with the reunion dinner.

Plans are still being made for the night, which gets started at 6.30pm and promises some excellent entertainment.

The event is aimed at players and officials from 1940-1980, but it is open to all keen club figures.
