Scyon Man Challenge 2014 - Series Final at Browns Plains

An epic final leads to NSW backing up in successive series win!

Winners-Banner

SUMMARY:

They trained for this! Their states were behind them! With pride, prizes, honours and bragging rights on the line they met each other in the cauldron at Browns Plains. It was Queensland home terrritory and the News South Welshman would feel it. The Scyon Man Challenge Final was about to start and in about 15 minutes we would have our winner.

The teams lined up. Representing QLD was CMG Homes. The tight three of Sam Pratten, Darcey Pratten and Michael Allcoch had shown great form and dominance in the heats. Their heat installation time certainly sounded a threat to the NSW representatives and with home town advantage and the overwhelming support of the crowd could have created an intimidatory effect on the visitors from the south. The NSW Team, represented by Melrose Contracting AKA Bella Carpentry whose tight three of Clayton Grigg, Mitch Greeves and Jeremiah Staines also showed great form entering the final stage of the event. With great times and technical prowess along with the experience of the previous year by one of their team, they looked anything but intimidated in this arena. They were ready to inflict pain on their opposition.

After the customary taking on of protein and carbs via the BBQ  hospitably served by the home team, all that was left was for the firing gun to start proceedings. Nail Guns and spirit levels at the ready, palms sweaty, a drop of perspiration on the brow and they were off.

CMG Homes jumped out to a very quick start and took the New South Welshmen by suprise. Gasps were heard from the crowd as both teams suffered delays with tools malfunctioning, The odd expletive not suitable for a G classification were muttered under competitors breath. The heat was on. During the first half the lead changed 3 times as the battle continued blow for blow, sheet for sheet, nail for nail.

The speed that both teams were performing at underlined how hard they had focussed on team work to the point of intuition playing a key role. The Hardies adjudicators could barely keep up with the action. (suggest some off season training for them)

It came down to the Linea leg of the event. it was board for board with nails bending on both teams such was their haste and the mounting pressure. In the end, like all good thrillers, it came down to the final board and who could put the last three nails in the quickest.

NSW finished first in a time of 11:05 with the Queensland team finishing in 11:20. Both teams completing the event faster than any result in the lead up heats. But in the end it was not only speed but the technical aspects who would decide the winners. Queensland scored 61 points for the technical aspects of the event. Tech Secura (16), Tech Axon (19), Tech Linea (18), and Teamwork (8). This clawed back one point from NSW who completed the technical aspects on 60 points.Tech Secura (16), Tech Axon (18), Tech Linea (16), Teamwork (10). It was not enough though.

Melrose Contracting AKA Bella Carpentry representing New South Wales were the Winners of the Scyon Man Challenge 2014 with a total point score of 90. CMG Homes, the Queensland home town heroes, finished with 88 points but also covered themselves with honour in defeat along with prizes and local bragging rights.

Hudson and Hardies Congratulates Clayton Grigg, Mitch Greeves and Jerimiah Staines from Melrose Contracting on their win.

We hope all our competitors enjoyed their experience and the comraderie amongst local teams and across state borders the event sets out to promote. We look forward to your participation again next year. Tell your friends, workmates and industry professionals and lets make next year the biggest yet.

Thanks to all our Suppliers, Competitors, Supporters and Staff for their input in making this an event to mark on the calendar!

Scyon Man Challenge 2014 - Morayfield Round

Last chance to be state representatives

SUMMARY:

Would the last round of the Scyon Man Challenge 2014 in QLD be the one to produce its best representaives? Morayfield was the setting and the locals from CMG did infact win and will now represent Queensland. But on state results there was only 1 point in it.

The Morayfield challengers produced some of the best times of the Queensland competition and showed on this basis alone that they will battle well against the reps from NSW, The winning time of 13:35 places them not far behind the best time in NSW so with a home ground advantage this will provide that lift that could get them across the line in speed. With thier points being the same as NSW state winners, the stage is set for an epic grudge match which is guaranteed to be close.

CMG won the day with an impressive time and a total of 95 points. Yorkbuild accumulated 89 points with a great time of 14:20 followed by Jay Hamilton on 81 points in a time of 18 minutes flat. Morayfield produced 1st, 4th and 10th overall in the state so it was a great showing by the local builders. Congratulations to you all.

It was not possible to create this great day if it was not for the effort put in by the staff and suppliers at Morayfield. Their effort have not only helped to produce the Queensland Reps but ensures a strong relationship and understanding of their customers and a commitment toward them.

So the final awaits and destiny beckons as CMG takes on Bella Carpentry from NSW at Browns Plains, Queensland on the Wednesday 9th July. We hope that heaps of people turn up for the final and cheer on the teams.. and try to be a little impartial whilst showing some good old Queenslander cheering.

CAN QLD DO IT? LETS GET BEHIND THEM!

Scyon Man Challenge 2014 - Kirrawee Round

The Heat was on!

SUMMARY:

This was the last opportunity for the NSW to find its best representaives in the Scyon Man Challenge 2014. Kirrawee, the location of last years final, was the battle ground that ever so nearly provided those representatives. Failing an appeal or positive urine samples we have our NSW Representatives. They are Bella Carpentry.

The Kirrawee challengers provided a high level of speed, expertise and technical ability to produce some great times and installation prowess. Infact Kirrawee provided the fastest time of the NSW rounds with an oustanding 12:14 achieved by Melrose Contracting South. This was 45 seconds clear of any of the other NSW competitors. Translating this to a realtime scenario and they could have a house up in a week! Alas there was a couple of technical aspects that impacted on the final result but their performance was pretty to watch all the same. The HIA Apprentices also performed extremely well with a comendable result being just outside the NSW top 10. The NSW building industry is in good hands with these first timers!

Congratulations go to our first placegetters at Kirrawee Melrose Contracting South on 94 points in a time of 12:14 followed closely by the HIA Apprentices on 88 points in a time of 18:24. Nu Build were our wiiners of the Safety and Teamwork component of the scoring with a maximum 10 points. At the end of the working day it is most important to get home in one piece and still call your mate your mate.

Once again the great staff at Krirawee under the leadership of Manager David Ward put on a great day with the all important organisation of suppliers and the BBQ for competitors and supporters. The suppliers have supported this competition really well in NSW and it reflects their commitment to the builders of the state.

The stage is now set for the final in the cauldron, Browns Plains Queensland. Our state winners Bella Carpentry, will travel to take on the Queenslanders and are confident they will take it right up to them on Queenslands home turf.

GO NSW!!

Scyon Man Challenge 2014 - Browns Plains Round

A rich mix of youth and experience set the stage

SUMMARY:

Feeling the sting left by NSW winning this years state of origin RL, the Queensland teams at Browns Plains had something to prove as they battled to see if they could represent their state in the Scyon Man challenge 2014.

After the preliminary technical, product knowledge and installation briefing, the teams were primed to give it their best shot Their professionalism and speed on display they approached the round with something to prove.

Prior to the event though they along with spectators and supporters carb loaded with a generous supply from the Hudson bbq, washed down with free refreshments, encouragment and barbs from their compatriots. Was it enough to spur them on to victory? Well it was for the team from Hunter Build who won the day with 87 points and a great time of 15:20. Second was Hayes Building in a time of 17:50 with a score of 82. Our third palcegetters were Johson in a time of 19:20 on 78 points. Congratulations to our winners who competed the best on the day!

One of the most important aspects of these events is that it brings professionals on both supply and installation together. We all learn from each other which is one of the aspects of the industry Hudson hopes to foster from this type of events. We hope this inteaction helps both suppliers and our customers and we want to say thankyou to you all choosing Hudson to Build With You!

The next events are scheduled on Friday 27th June in New South Wales at Kirrawee and at Morayfield in Queensland. Act now and put your team together and enjoy a great afternoon.

Send it Sailing Update

Proud Sponsors Of The boys

Sailing

With our flight to Europe only four weeks away we have been working on keeping our skills sharp. This is increasingly difficult as the Australian sailing season traditionally finishes Anzac Day as the weather starts to cool off meaning a lot of sailing by ourselves without competitors. Also complicating the issue is the fact that our only 3 sail boat (Jib,mainsail and kite) is in a container on the way to Europe.

After a few phone calls we managed to secure a friends boat to compete at the Brass Monkey regatta over the recent June long weekend held at Toukley Sailing Club. Sailing on the Saturday and the Monday (family commitments prevented a Sunday hit out), we managed to get some invaluable training against other boats and on a boat that utilisers the same skills as the Viper.

We sailed 5 races over the 2 days managing an impressive score card of 5,1,1,1 & 1. The fifth was just us getting used to a different boat and learning how to handle a different set up.
