Good luck to the four teams in the battle to reach the Grand Final
The Kahibah Sports Cannons Minor Premiers have added the Major Premiership to their dominating season in the Tony Tamplin Shield. Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 battled well to reach the Grand Final after just scraping in to 8th spot in the finals but Kahibah stopped their impressive run. On the night Kahibah flew out of the blocks with a couple of quick wins before the Belmont attempted to fight their way back into the match. However, Kahibah’s momentum was too great and they ended up winning the night in a comprehensive fashion. A big thank you to Wangi Workers Club for hosting the Grand Final, Ian Callaghan and Grant Schubert for refereeing on the night and Chris Mungoven and Annette Clifford for excellent running the 2018 Tony Tamplin Shield and also ensuring the Grand Final ran extremely smoothly. Rob Elsley took out the season high break with a 61. Anyone who wants to watch table 2 of the Grand Final can watch here.
