By BH 8-ball Association committee members Stephen Moore and Jarrod Dunn helping to install shade sails for the PCYC.

With the help of the local 8-ball Association, the PCYC has been able to put up new shade sails, after the last ones were stolen.

PCYC Club Manager Rowena Marks said the last shade sails were put up as part of a work experience program.

“The last ones were stolen from the front of the centre,” she said.

“They had been put up as part of the LETS work experience program.

“The 8-ball Association heard what happened and donated three shade sails.”

Two of the shade sails replaced the stolen ones and the third was installed at the back of the centre.

“They also helped to tidy up the front yard,” Mrs Marks said.

“The sails will be securely fastened so they can’t be taken from the centre.”

Committee member for the BH 8-ball Association Darren Thom said he was disappointed to see the sails had been stolen.

“I helped to put the pergola up, when I drove past and saw the sails missing - I thought why not,” he said.

“The association likes to give something back to the community.”

A State Carnival will be held this weekend at the Gary Radford Pavilion with 8-ball players from around South Australia.

“Everyone is welcome to come and have a look,” Mr Thom said.

“Broken Hill’s best will be on show.”

Mr Thom said over 300 people are expected to be in the city for the tournament.
