Bianca Schultz was up next with a single fight, winning a gold medal with a hold down. Jasmine Glass had two fights, losing one and winning the other.

Cancer football comp needs more support AFTER being denied any golf on the previous weekend due to the weather, a field of sixty hungry golfers contested last Sundays Katherine Hotel Monthly Medal. The course was once again presented to the players in top condition, and the weather conditions were good enough to encourage some good scores. One of the Katherine Golf Clubs best improvers Shaun Coutts took out the A grade medal with a nett 72 from Sam ONeil who had a self confessed mixed round of 74 nett. It was left to the B graders to present the best rounds of golf for the day with winner Paul Smith on fire with his nett 63. Ayden Rickman was not too far away with a nett 68 to take out second place. Matt Wilcox enjoyed the conditions to record a winning nett 69 in C grade, from the ultra consistent Ducks Ross who carded a nett 71 to grab second place. Natina Eggleton won the Ladies Medal with a nett 71 from Jo Jennings who carded a nett 75. Last Sunday was David Proctors last round at Katherine for a while as he and Kylie are shifting to Darwin. All the best in the future, to this keen pair of popular golfers. I understand that the Police Golf Buggy will shortly be patrolling the Palmerston Golf Course. Hope to see you back for our open. Good to see Trent Young back in town and enjoying the course last Sunday. Handicapper alert - Trent was one of Kather ines best A graders before he shifted to Queensland welcome back mate. Next Sunday the club will be running a Shark Shootout. A time sheet has been placed on the notice board. The Katherine Veterans Golf Club staged a Two Man Ambrose competition last Saturday. Played over nine holes the field comprised of Veterans (Toads) and wanna be a Vet when I am old enough (Taddies). Captain rules on the run Kegs presided over the competition, which was won by the Jim Bitossi, Pete Fowler combination. Jim was playing his first round back since returning from work in Darwin, therefore it was fitting for him to celebrate it with a popular win. Next Saturday (10am for 10.30ams start) the Vets will be staging a stableford (back nine) competition, visiting Vets most welcome. Golfers bid their farewell to police golf buggy
