Congratulations to Brent Read (Gold Coast) in Winning the Townsville Open Comp on the May Day long weekend. Brent defeated the up and coming supa star Chris Bingley aka "Sticker Man". Good to see some top contenders from the South East travelling to Townsville, which is were the State Singles and State open team play-off are later this year (27-28-29 August 2010). I guess Brent's odds must of shorten to Win the South East Zone Singles as well. (17th July 2010)
