Dal­larnil team win at Bucca

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

LUCK­ILY for his fel­low team mates, David Scholl read his rules be­fore com­pet­ing in the first round of the Gold Buckle se­ries at Bucca.

With Deon Isles and Wayne Nilsen, the trio have com­peted in team pen­ning and cut­ting at Dal­larnil, Mt Perry and Bund­aberg. They were disqual­i­fied three times be­cause Scholl didn’t know the rules.

The for­mer dairy farmer said with a laugh “be­fore we started on Sun­day morn­ing, the guys gave me two pages of rules to read”.

They must have sunk in as they got their max­i­mum of nine head into the en­clo­sure in a faster time than sec­ond plac­ers.

Scholl said I think the win may have been more luck than good man­age­ment.

Third place was the Biggen­den team of Ros Buczma with daugh­ter Ta­mara and niece Tea­gan Bechly who were com­pet­ing to­gether for the first time.

Scholl said team pen­ning was a fam­ily fun sport.

The trio will be back for the sec­ond of five rounds

David Scholl I didn’t even know we were com­pet­ing for prize money.

later this month.

Scholl has his eye on win­ning the gold buckle.

“I’ve never won any­thing be­fore,” he said.

WIN­NING TEAM: Dal­larnil team of Deon Isles, David Scholl andWayne Nilsen won the team pen­ning at Bucca on Sun­day.
