Top award to Goulding
THE Apollonian Hotel was the backdrop for the Noosa Malibu Club’s end-of-season presentation day.
Club president Dave Dunn presented the trophies under the canopy of the large trees and a great outdoor setting.
Men’s club champion, as well as the open men’s division, was won by Bruce Goulding. Scott Ford came in a creditable second in the open men’s event, just ahead of Andrew Engel.
Keena Wilson took the open women’s award from Jane Purtill and Di Cuddihy.
The junior boys was a hard-fought battle throughout the season, with Lindon Whitfield in first place and Noah Kloster second. The junior girls also went back and fourth with the scoring, with Sophie Kloster bringing it home just ahead of Lucy Cantori.
The age divisions have been so close all year, with great surfing from all the club members.
In the over-40s an elated Rob Whitfield took the award, just ahead of Brady Corby, with Mark Tume third.
The over-50 award was won by Peter White in a close tussle with Pat Sweeney, with Phil Jarratt in third.
The over-60s showed they still have it, with Glenn Martin in first place, just ahead of Win Cuddihy and Eric Watts. Top judge of the year went to Keena Wilson.
Club person of the year was Di Cuddihy for all her work put in.
Bruce Goulding capped a fantastic day by winning the Classic Malibu/Madills surfboard for his never-ending work as the club treasurer.
