WET weather failed to dampen the spirits of netballers who flocked to Biloela to compete in the second Gay Fraser Cup Carnival last weekend.
Brainchild of the event Shari Hancox said the rain made the day better for the 21 teams that made the trip to Biloela for the competition.
"It went really well even though it poured rain," Shari said.
"Our brand new courts were fantastic.
"In a way it made it more memorable because there aren't many places you could play in those sort of conditions."
Teams from Yeppoon, Rockhampton, Gladstone and Biloela fought for the cup.
The Frenchville Taipans were the winners of the cup as well as being the 10 and under division winners.
Open division winners were Frenchville Mustangs over the Biloela Open team by one point.
THE 16 and under division winners were Biloela Shizzam, runners-up were Biloela Aftershock.
The 14 and under division winners were the Frenchville Treefrogs with Central Valleys in a close second and 12 and under division winners were Gladstone.
Local players Kala and Candice Rideout both took out prizes for best and fairest in their respective divisions.
Biloela club members were inspired to have the Gay Fraser Cup last year after the development of their new courts at Magavalis Sports Complex facility that they believe should be put to good use.
Hosting the carnival in Biloela was also a benefit to local teams.
"To go away to a carnival like this we would have to travel to Emerald or Rockhampton and very few of our teams can get there," Shari said.
"But on the weekend we had seven local teams in the comp."
Shari is enthusiastic about more Gay Fraser Cups to come: "I have a dirty big cup here that needs plenty more names on it," she laughed.
