Sure, there were grand fi­nals on last week­end but the real Aussie sports lovers were at Mum­bil’s Blackwattl­e Fair for the world fa­mous Chuck­akubra com­pe­ti­tion.

I claimed the ti­tle in ‘12 and ‘14 but this year John Howard came out of re­tire­ment (that’s Bur­ren­dong’s John Howard) to claim his third ti­tle with a chuck of about 22 me­tres which I reckon is a record. It was a mighty ef­fort! I man­aged to bag the sil­ver - and will have to wait for ‘18 for an­other shot at Chuck­akubra glory! Don’t miss it!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Pres­i­dent of the Mum­bil Dis­trict Progress As­so­ci­a­tion, Michelle Polley, Vice-pres­i­dent Dale El­liott, Sec­re­tary Dianne Kelly, Trea­surer Norma Faram and the com­mit­tee on an­other hugely suc­cess­ful Blackwattl­e Fair!
