Pat­ter­son chops his way to vic­tory

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

A SPE­CIAL wood­chop was added last year to the Mun­dub­bera Show pro­gram in mem­ory of Kelvin James who lost his life to leukemia in March 2012.

Par­ents Gra­ham and Glenda and sis­ter Regina have hon­oured his mem­ory with the Kelvin James Me­mo­rial Shield Wood­chop.

It was de­cided to make it a 300mm stand­ing block hand­i­cap be­cause this was Kelvin’s strong­est event. This year it was won by Harry Pat­ter­son, from Spring­sure, who re­ceived a tro­phy and $600 prize money do­nated by the James fam­ily.

“It is a very pres­ti­gious event and was well con­tested,” show vol­un­teer Me­gan Din­gle said.
