RAAF Base Williams to the rescue
THE NTH QLD team took out the
men's open division at the Australian
Defence Touch Championship at
RAAF Base Williams, Laverton, in
Nearly 200 players and officials
from all over Australia enjoyed three
days of high-level activity and social-
ising during the championship.
One of the organisers, SQNLDR
Cliff Winnett, was delighted with the
"Touch continues to be the larg-
est growth sport in the ADF and the
annual championship provides an
opportunity for the 'best of the best' to
display their skills in an atmosphere of
competitive spirit," he said.
Air Force support was crucial to
the success of the titles.
During the lead-up, many Defence
bases were contacted to host the tour-
nament but the situation became quite
desperate when none were available.
"Fortunately, the touch committee
at Williams quickly sprang into action
and researched the possibility of con-
ducting the tournament in Victoria,"
SQNLDR Winnett said.
Williams wasn't without experi-
ence, having conducted it in 2006.
Teams from NT, Nth QLD, Sth
QLD, Sydney, ACT and Southern
States (VIC/SA) took part this year.
Many of the players who success-
fully competed in the recent World
Masters backed up and proudly dis-
played their medals.
The Defence tournament was divid-
ed into several divisions -- men's open,
women's open, men's U30 and men's
U40, with five to six teams per division.
Round robins were conducted over
the first two days.
After the titles, teams were
announced in each division for the
national touch championship on the
Sunshine Coast in Queensland in March.
