With a healthy amount of QS points on offer, the event has attracted some of the sports biggest names including Championship Tour (CT) stars Owen Wright, Conner Coffin, Wade Carmichael and Bronte Macaulay to name a few.

These proven competitors won't have it easy with over 200 hungry QS competitors hoping to take down some big scalps as they look to join them on the CT at year's end.

Earlier today, trials winner's Joel Vaughan (Bateau Bay, NSW) secured himself a spot in the main event, taking out an elite field of interstate and local competitors.
