Davies Family Swing To Victory

Posted at 08:06 on 25 June 2012


The Davies family from Newbridge have been crowned Wales’ Ultimate Family 2012 after a thrilling battle over Celtic Manor’s Forest Jump course.

Dad Carl, mum Tracy and boys Evan (10) and Ethan (8) were just two points from securing a maximum score over the four rounds as they emerged victorious in a hard-fought competition.

Defending champions the Kill family were their closest challengers and trailed by just a few points going into the final Powerfan Hoop Bonus Round.

But the blue team held their nerve to hit the target with all four of their shots while leaping down the Powerfan plunge to take the 2012 title. They will now return to Celtic Manor for a two-night luxury stay in a two-bedroom suite with meals and activities worth £2,000.

Dad Carl said: “We had a fantastic time competing in the final and to be crowned winners is the icing on the cake. We’re very proud to win Wales’ Ultimate Family 2012.”

The Sadler, Zwart and Morris families competed the final line-up of five adventure-loving families with children ranging in age from 6-18.
