Craig Carter has claimed his third Australian National Championship with a strong victory in windy conditions in Wantirna, Melbourne. Winning four of the six events, he was a clear winner over Rob Croll and David J Richardson, second and third respectively. The highlight of the Nationals was a score of 92 out of 100 in Aussie Round by Craig in the closing moments of the tournament, with his last three throws being perfect 50 metre returns to the centre circle.
One week later on the other side of the continent, fellow 2010 Australian Team member Grant Perry broke the eight-year-old MTA-100 record of his father, keeping his boomerang in the air for one minute and 20.82 seconds before completing his catch. Father Roger managed to hold onto the Western Australian title though, relegating Grant to second place, with Josh Smith in third.
In ten days time, Roger (as captain), Grant, Josh, Craig, Rob, and David will go into action as the BAA Australian team at the 2010 Boomerang World Cup being held in Rome, Italy.
Please also welcome Leonie Metzkais back as President, and Bruce Carter and Leanne Loveland into the committee.
