***Congratulations Kane Chantarat***

Young Bundy player Kane has been selected to go down to Melbourne for the Hopes Challenge Week on the 22nd of this month for 5 days, where he will be involved in some very valuable intensive training, and a final day tournament. He'll be training alongside other under 12 male & female players, from Queensland and around Australia, who are already showing they have the natural talent to go on to represent their state, and possibly their country if they work hard.

His father, Anek, a club stalwart, will be going down as his chaperone. No doubt it will be a great experience for both father and son.

Good luck, Kane; enjoy, listen, and work hard - it will be worth it!

ERIC CREE SHIELD DEFENCE

Unfortunately, Rockhampton proved far too strong on November 11 and easily regained the Eric Cree Shield, winning on five tables to our one win. Congratulations, and heartfelt thanks, to Meg Freeman, Tayla Scott, Nikki Udal and Patricia Rodgers who prevented the clean sweep. In particular, Meg was our outstanding performer, winning her three singles, including the final match to ensure the team’s 6-5 victory, plus a doubles with Tayla. However, all our players tried very hard; numerous ones had narrow losses and certainly everyone enjoyed the chance to test their skills against the Rocky players. We now look forward to next November when we have the home court advantage.
