Footy fans could win a swag this weekend at the Parkes Spaceman versus Forbes Magpies match, thanks to the Forbes/Parkes Community Drug Action Team (CDAT).
The match will take place on Sunday 10 June from 2pm at Pioneer Oval in Parkes.
Forbes/Parkes CDAT Chair, Melanie Suitor, says the win the swag competition will dovetail the state-wide Plan B campaign which encourages punters to think about alternatives to driving home after a night out.
"Plan B is about making positive choices to get home safely after a night out, highlighting that driving is not an option. It is aimed at young male drivers 17-25 years old, who are overrepresented in all alcohol related crashes, which is why we are going to be at the rugby league match on the weekend.
"The win a swag competition seeks to stop drink driving by promoting an alternative way to get home and the swag itself is a Plan B option and has proven to be a popular prize when given away previously," Ms Suitor said.
Fans (who are over 18) could win a swag worth $250, simply by filling in an entry form and advising what their Plan B to get home will be.
"In addition to the win a swag competition, we will also have a footy toss game for everyone to try using beer goggles and giveaways for anyone who takes part.
"Thanks to the Parkes Rugby League Football Club for allowing us to set up our stall and promote this important message," Ms Suitor said.
Drink driving is one of the biggest causes of death and injury on NSW roads. Country people are at particular risk given the lack of public transport or other options for getting home.
CDATs are a group of people working together to take action on drug/alcohol related concerns in their community. Across NSW there are 70 CDATs. CDATs are funded by NSW Health and administered by the Australian Drug Foundation.
The Forbes/Parkes CDAT is comprised of members from Forbes Shire Council, Parkes Shire Council, NSW Police, NSW Health, Red Bend Catholic College, Parkes High School, Roads and Maritime Services and Parkes PCYC.
