Pasquale Avolio and Justin King were recognised and thanked for their roles as Club Captains in previous years by current club captains Dave Evans and Kylie Hawkins both on a personal level and on behalf of the BNSDC membership and representative team.
Glen Bourke and Cameron McLean were presented with a special award, the “Break Down Mechanic Award as a thank you for their efforts in getting the representative team back on the road during a road trip to Gympie when the bus broke down on the highway. The team was over an hour late but thanks to the boys they arrived safe and managed to take home the trophy.
The representative side had another awesome year, continuing on from 2017 when they won the 3rd Division of the SQDC Adam & Eve which gained them promotion into 2nd Division for the new year. In 2018, the team achieved 2nd place in all 4 Adam & Eve tournaments by a single point. This achievement will see the club promoted into 1st Division for 2019.
BNSDC hosted their 1st Adam & Eve and were able to field an additional 2 sides in the May tournament which performed very well and showed not only do we have a solid club but it is filled with quality players.
The Club Captains, Dave Evans and Kylie Hawkins expressed how proud they are of this amazing achievement in just 2 years and recognised the efforts of past captains Pasquale Avolio and Justin King in their large part of this achievement as well as every member of the representative side.
2018 saw BNSDC enter the SQDC Intercities tournament for the first time. Both the ladies and men’s teams did us proud, once again we were asked to field an additional men’s side with the top men’s side making it to the finals and achieving 6th place.
BNSDC played Gympie and Sunshine Coast in 2 challenges each and won all 4 matches for the year. The team performed well in both Mark Edge Shields against Pine Rivers but were unlucky to be defeated in both. The Interclub challenge between, BNSDC, Pine Rivers, Kallangur and Redcliffe remains a strong competition played on 4 occasions throughout the year and saw BNSDC win the Patty & Trevor Martin Shield.
