The BSE Dragons jet off in October and will play a range of sports including basketball, netball, soccer and touch rugby. The group will also be ambassadors for AFL Football, and will play reciprocal matches against NZ.

As well as Cola Solar’s sponsorship, other local businesses are supporting the tour including Whitelock Transports, National Motel, Axe Creek Coaches, Great Ideas and Bicknell Independent Sports.

The Dragons squad have also been fundraising all year including selling chocolates, delivering phone books and a trivia night. They are still looking for any additional financial assistance so if you’d like to help, contact Bendigo South East College on (03) 5443 4522.

Have a successful trip guys!
