On the weekend, Phill Cribb, Executive Risk Solutions Fire and Emergency Management Consultant attended the Norseman Rock Drill State Championship 2015.

The State Championships were part of the Norseman Gold Fever Festival and the rock drilling is a sporting event which was born from underground mining techniques.

Competitors race each other to drill a hole through the centre of a 850 mm concrete cylinder and hit the plate at the back of the cylinder using competition equipment which weighs 50 odd kilos.
