Rockhampton Gateball Competition

After an exciting round robin of 6 teams (Rockhampton x 2, Toowoomba, Ipswich, and 2 combined teams (MacCCIG and SouthBrie ), the SouthBrie team finished winner with 4 wins and only one loss but with few net points.  In the team were Keith McLeod, Dianne and Peter Sweet from Southport, Paul Ekberg from East Brisbane and Joy Rule from Bribie Island.

SouthBrie had to endure an agonising final game between Ipswich and Toowoomba before their victory was achieved. Toowoomba had 3 wins but quite a few net points so, had they defeated Ipswich, they would have clinched first place. Right at the end of the game, the scores were level. Adele Stokes sparked a ball to agari and gave Ipswich the win.

The weather was perfect and the courts, with painted lines, were superb.  The catering was excellent and the overall hospitality of the Rocky Club was as usual at a high standard.
