A Win at the Golden Trowel is a Massive Confidence Boost

For the second time in three competitions Coffs Harbour has taken out the coveted Golden Trowel Award. What’s the secret guys? Is it Paul Venn, a three-time winner who was trainer of the 2011 Coffs team of talented bricklayers Dwayne Potter and Ian Cutmore? Or is it something in the air at Coffs Harbour?

The team takes away the Golden Trowel trophy while TAFE Coffs Harbour again becomes the proud winner of the Challenge Shield.
