Beacon Minerals Coolgardie Day 125th Celebration Rockdrill Championship!

Can you believe it our third rock drill event in Western Australia this year!! When once upon a time over 18 rock drills occurred through out the west in any given year we’ve now revived the 18 year break in this iconic event three years ago. Hosting and help out three Rock drill championships for 2017 has been a challenge for our small committee but one we are proud of!

WARDC Mangelsdorf Rockdrill Championship 2017 Results

9.30 am saw the start in the finest weather for the 2017 Mangelsdorf Rockdrill Championships held at the Cruickshank’s Sports arena. There was a strong crowd throughout the day and all drilling was conducted in the best spirit of competition. Drillers had come from as far afield as Telfer, Victoria and Tasmania.

Good news for the future with Michael Lee and Kaleb Cameron both improving their standing as the young guns Michael winning the Barminco Novice Drill and it won’t be long until these two start featuring in the Rocktech Singles final. Another highlight was the fact the first event filled with the allocated registrations, the Northern Star Jack and Jill. The crowd had the biggest roar for this final and seen the popularity of women competing increase.

Age and guile was the order of the day in the Rocktech Singles and HMR Pybar Doubles finals and those that made the least amount of mistakes where eventually chosen as the winner. From the final 8 in the single the competition heated up. Congrats to all who took part and to those who claimed the titles!
