Apex Camel Cup

2017 saw another successful Apex Camel Cup held on a glorious winters day at Blatherskite Park, with have over 4,500 people through the gate. 
 
The day was a seven race meet with the camels finishing in the top three of the first four races qualify for the for cup. The Cup was hotly contented with Nugget finally coming in strong to claim the prize. Nugget is owned and trained by Uluru Camel Tours. 
 
The crowd favorite is always the Honeymoon Race, this race sees the camels race halfway around the track where the have to stop, sit down, pick up their bride then race off again for the finishing line. The camels always provide great entertainment in this race as they are not always keen to collect their bride. 
 
Over all the day was enjoyed by everyone, with Camel Kapers Races for kid riding wooden camels, rickshaw races for the adults and the Ironman Challenge. The Henley on Todd boats always put on a great display for the crowds. The Duck Cup was run by the Dingo Cubs, people get the chance to buy a rubber duck and have it shot out of a cement mixer to see if it crosses the line first.

Barrett Drive Mile 

It was a truly fantastic day, and we were thrilled with the participation across all events. It was an exciting start to the event this year with approximately 20 riders participating in the Cycling Criterium which kicked off the Barrett Drive Mile.
 
It was great to see so many young kids involved this year and get into the spirit of the event. They all ran their hearts out and it was great to see them having so much fun.

Chippy Miller - my trip to an International Darts Tournament


After many hours flying and waiting in airports, I finally arrived at my destination, New Plymouth/Taranaki, NZ.

The tournament commenced the very next evening, with an exhibition competition between our Indigenous Australian Team, against the NZ Maori Team, held in the Taranaki Darts Club. 

Unfortunately we lost that with a score of 8-6. This was the first of what is hoped to be an annual event between the Indigenous Aust. Team and the NZ Maori Team.

The next day was the commencement of the Taranaki International Darts Tournament, with players from Australia, NZ and Malaysia.
   
We were the only group from Australia, comprising of 2 teams of 4 players. Malaysia had about 4 teams and NZ had about 8 teams.

Our top Aust Team ended up equal 5th, which was a great effort, considering that the side had never been together prior to this trip. I was the only player outside QLD.
