Broth­ers cane the op­po­si­tion

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE - DOMANII CAMERON

TWO Ing­ham broth­ers have shown that Crys­tal Creek isn’t only renowned for its wa­ter­falls, but also for its sur­round­ing fer­tile soil.

Matthew and Kurt Serra re­ceived sev­eral awards for their cane en­tries at the Ing­ham Show dur­ing the week.

The en­tries, which they had grown on a prop­erty near Crys­tal Creek, ranged across a va­ri­ety of cat­e­gories. Matthew said the prepa­ra­tion oc­curred across the en­tire cane sea­son, and they al­ways hoped for the best weather. With their 17 en­tries, they won Grand Cham­pion of Stool over­all, Best Stool of His­tor­i­cal Va­ri­ety un­der 18s, a first and third for the History Heavy Stick plus tak­ing out places in the Field Stalk area. This is the third year that the broth­ers had en­tered the cane sec­tion of the Ing­ham Show to­gether.
