Mt Coolum Wins The 2019 Battle OF The Rock
It wasn't a walkover like last year, but Mt Coolum successfully defended the Battle of The Rock, with a 15 point win over Maroochy RIver.
We took a 114 point lead to Maroochy River after the first round. Our Captain and President led from the rear, with a combined score of 59 points compared to their Maroochy River counterparts score of 70.
Luckily the troops stood up, led by Greg O'Regan with 39 points, and Kevin Fraser and Serguei Sokolov on 38.
Maroochy River's second round score of 772 was 99 more than our score of 673, but was insufficient to close the 114 point gap, and we ran out overall winners 1447 to 1432.

Barry Bowditch Wins District Championship At Caloundra
Despite their home ground advantage in Round 2 of the Battle of the Rock, Maroochy River were unable to claw back the massive lead established by Mt Coolum in round one.
Ably led by great scores by Richard Churchman (41) and Mick Ludeke(38), Mt Coolum scored 652, trailing Maroochy River's 683 by 31. The margin was never going to overhaul our 151 point lead from round 1 (MtC 800 to MR 649) and the final combined score was Mt Coolum 1452 to Maroochy River 1332.
Pictured are Mick Ludeke and Darryl Crank receiving the trophy from the Maroochy River captain Val Bukmanis.
Well done to all players, we look forward to defending the trophy in 2019.
