Oztag: Stanthorpe Oztag is set to hit Sullivan Oval in September.

Stanthorpe Oztag president Peter Burnell said the season was set to run throughout the next term of school.

John Cobon from Stanthorpe Oztag said the details would be discussed at next week's annual general meeting.

Stanthorpe Oztag AGM and general meeting will take place on Monday, August 21, at 6pm, meeting at Gremlins Rugby League Club House, Sullivan Oval, to discuss the 2017 season.

"Whoever wants to be involved with the running of Stanthorpe Oztag (is welcome to come),” Cobon said.

"If you know of someone who would be interested in helping, bring them along.”

Queensland Oztag will be visiting all schools in the area on August 30 and August 31, finishing with a free game and sign-on afternoon on Thursday, August 31.

Cobon said Stanthorpe Oztag was looking at holding the first Oztag games of the season on Thursday, September 7.

Like in previous years, the limited contact sport will take place at Sullivan Oval on Thursday afternoons.

Burnell said the registration costs would be similar to last year and he hoped more adults would give it a go.

"We really want to encourage more adults to come,” he said.

"We are trying to have an over-20s and an over-30s competition.

"We are trying to make it a bit more social.”

There will be no club training involved.

Players just have to rock up to Sullivan Oval every Thursday to have a good time.

Last year, Stanthorpe Oztag had more than 200 junior players.
