Army October 29, 2009
By Scotty Tobias
WITH key players missing, Ar my failed in its
quest to stop Navy winning its first national
bowling title at the recent championships in
It might have taken a quar ter of a century,
but Navy finally broke through, as its five-
year development plan, instituted in 2004,
Army would not have been surprised,
having experienced its first loss at Navy’s
hands at last year’s titles. Navy had picked
up even more young talent since.
Army, on the other hand, found itself
short of experience for the second year run-
ning and looked in need of recruits.
While the burgeoning Navy team was
something of an unknown quantity for Ar my
at the start of the tournament, the certainty
was that Navy’s confidence would be high,
given Navy players were the core of the
winning NSW side in the state competition
ear lier in the week.
Navy quickly established a 15-shot buffer
and threatened to run away with its first-
round match against Army, but Army battled
admirably to keep the margin the same.
The highlight for Ar my was a win by
WO1 Steve Sobolewski’s team of WO2
Darren Peak, Pte Vince Muller and WO2 Sue
McManus, which overcame a five-shot deficit
to win 25-12.
In round two, Army went down 70-82
to Air Force after again managing one win
across four rinks.
It was a bitter loss for the Army bowlers
because it put them out of the running for
Still, they were confident going into their
final match against APS, who were thrashed
102-49 by Navy in the previous round.
The result was the same as the first two
rounds – one rink win and an obvious lack of

IN 2006, two ALTC soldiers ran 100km in
a working day to raise money for Legacy.
In just three years, this fundraising activity
has snowballed into a fully-fledged sports
This year, 39 teams and 35 individuals
competed in the eight-hour relay event at South
Bandiana, raising $15,500 for the charity.
After its noble yet humble start, the ALTC
event was opened to local and interstate units
By 2008, running and mountain bike cate-
gories for both teams and individuals had been
added and it raised an impressive $7000.
A walking category was included this year,
which encouraged even more participants and
doubled the donations.
It was no walk in the park for the 39 teams
and 35 individual participants, however.
Two- to four-person teams of runners,
mountain bikers and walkers attempted to
complete as many laps as possible in eight
hours. Individual competitors were expected to
cover up to 50km in the eight hours.
The runners’ circuit was 4.5km, the moun-
tain bikers’ 6km and the walkers’ 4km.
Race day was sunny but constant rain in
preceding days made the going hard.
One of the competitors, WO2 Peter Lee,
paid credit to the participants, especially those
who completed it on their own. “This is one of
the toughest challenges I have been involved
with,” he said.
The ALTC Legacy Event is held at South
Bandiana during Legacy week on the first
Friday in September and is open to all ADF
The category winners were: Individual male runner
– Cpl Brett Elleman; individual female runner – LCpl
Laura Fitzgerald; individual male mountain biking
– Sgt Luke Woodland; individual female mountain bik-
ing – Capt Michelle Sheather; team mountain biking
– Smashed together; team runners – Over-it; team
walkers – Double Centurions.
Roughing it: Capt Michelle Sheather on her way to
victory in the Legacy individual mountain biking.
Lapping up a lasting legacy
Biased: Cpl Dale Reeves sends one down against APS in
the Defence national championships in Brisbane.
