The 2018 Australian Marbles Championships were decided at Brunswick Heads last Sunday in tough, close contests.
‘There was good competition in all three events even though numbers were down on previous years,’ organiser Mary Ashton said. ‘Maybe the changed venue was a factor.
‘But what we lacked in competitors was compensated for by the tough, close contests in most rounds and the crowding spectators,’ she said.
The Shearwater School’s ‘Hot Shots’ including Finley Pichler and Oliver Heath triumphed in the schools challenge event.
Oliver went on to win junior champion with Luminal Cassidy in second place.
Stefan Tobet was crowned open champion ahead of Damien Farrell.
