Fast and Furious to blaze Woodleigh

first_img KEEN TUSSLE In Standard division, the possible return of Ronald Brown Jr could see a keen tussle between himself and Yapp. Both are coming off good performances at the recent US Nationals. Manchester Rifle and Pistol Club’s Orville ‘Reds’ Henriques could also show for an interesting matchup as he seeks to regain lost ground. Reds was a couple percentage points behind Yap and Brown at US Nationals. Ever-improving Ellsworth Dixon, Owen Campbell, Thomas ‘Popcorn’ Jones, David Lazarus, and Chris Hart are capable of springing at the trophy table. Entries in the usually popular and competitive Open division have been affected by a shortage of ammunition. However, Kevin ‘Fastfoot’ Cheung could have a possible fight on his hands if Lennie Moulton decides to enter the division. Moulton has not declared his division, Standard or Open, keeping the anxiety high leading up to the championship. Meanwhile, Bernard Lawrence has also thrown his hat into the ring after a recent 10 per cent beating of Cheung at a Monster Match. Range owner Howie Brown, who had a disappointing performance on his last outing at the Emancipation Championships in July, due to poor ammo, will be trying to make amends. Brown, it is said, has since acquired new and better ammo for the Fast and Furious showdown. LOCAL shooters are itching ahead of Sunday’s Woodleigh Fast and Furious Pistol Championship in May Pen, Clarendon, especially with news that a Florida-based Production grand master has expressed an interest to contest that division. The Fast and Furious Championship features wide-open paper targets, at close range, with no penalty or steel plates to slow shooters. It pits the competitor against the timer, negotiating the courses of fire as fast and accurately as possible, but at the risk of dropping points. Participation of the Florida-based grand master has had locals such as high-flying A Class Ryan Bramwell burning to test his skills against the visitor, whose identity the organisers are keeping close to their chests. Bramwell placed third in the Production Nationals three weeks ago at the Jamaica Rifle Association, going down to Lesgar ‘Speedy’ Murdock and the consistent Andrew Yapp. With Murdock’s participation in doubt and Yapp returning to Standard division, Bramwell will be pushing hard to pull out all the stops and has played down the challenge of his former coach, Anthony ‘TJ’ Johnson. The up-and-coming pair of Paul Shoucair and Darin Richards could surprise. With Chris Nunez also in the mix, the normally quiet Production division could be set alight.last_img read more

TQ tempts German commuters… come to QLD

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: K.W Ad in Munich – Source: Tourism Queensland Queensland has made its mark in Germany as the tropical destination is plastered on advertising at German transit centres.Enticing commuters at busy transit centres in Munich, Frankfurt and Stuttgart, the outdoor advertising blitz was this week rolled out by Tourism Queensland with 127 eye catching info-screens.Tourism Queensland CEO Anthony Hayes said the outdoor ads feature tempting images of holidaymakers snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef are catching the attention of Germans who dream of escaping the daily grind. “The ads promote all-inclusive packages to Tropical North Queensland from €1669 including return airfares, four nights’ accommodation in Palm Cove and Port Douglas, 10 day car hire and a day trip to the reef,” Mr Hayes said. German wholesaler FTI is supporting the campaign after recently experiencing a 24 percent increase in bookings to Queensland for the first half of 2012 compared to last year’s same period, mainly due to previous campaigns featuring packages to Australia and Queensland.According to Mr Hayes the results demonstrate Queensland is a favourite Australian stop for German travellers with 68,000 Germans visiting the sunshine state in the year to March 2012.Of these visitors, more than half travelled to the Tropical North that caters for the Germans love of adventure, natural encounters and tropical islands and beaches.The ads promote travel until mid-December, keeping Tropical North Queensland in the minds of Germans wishing to swap Europe’s blistering cold winter for warm sunshine, sand and paradise.last_img read more
