I have been privileged to win a number of whipmaking awards including Sydney Royal Easter Show Standards of Excellence Award for the above whip.
Since 2004 I've had a stall at AGFEST (Tasmania's largest field day) and I've won "Best craft exhibitor" in 2004, and again in 2009 and "Best use of Central Arena" in 2017.
Usually I only win a state title event when the best whipcrackers in Australia don't turn up to a competition :o) I don't compete in my own state AWPA events as I help run and organize sponsors for the kids.
I was the Australian Accuracy Whipcracking Champion for 2007 & 2010 and came 2nd in the Men's Australian Whipcracking Championships for 2007 & 2010, 3rd in 2008 & 2009, 2011, 2012, 4th place in 2006.
I won the 2010 South Australian & Victorian Whipcracking Championship in the Men's divison.
Was also the 2011 & 2015 Victorian Men's Whipcracking Champion.....and now I don't keep track :o)
