QDHS ART EXPO; AN EXPLOSION OF COLOUR! Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd October 2020 saw the Quairading CRC transformed with an explosion of colour thanks to the insanely talented students and staff from Quairading District High School. An exhibition and competition combined, the 2020 QSpirit Art Expo had a jam-packed display of art of all mediums from all ages. In leiu of our annual Quairading Ag Show’s Exhibition Hall, this was a perfect presentation of student work for the community to admire and behold. Huge well done to all involved—see page 31.

My cup is full and my energy is a tad low—looking back on the last month it’s absolutely no wonder. It’s been a cracker! Between Food Sensations sessions wrapping up, art workshops, live music events, kids discos and so much more, it’s been the best sort of exhausting. The wonderful community vibes we’ve been feeling at the Quairading CRC of late feel a little bitter sweet on the recent passing of incredible local legend, selfless community advocate and huge inspiration of ours—Rowlie Mellor. I was lucky enough to be a student at QDHS for much of Mr Mellor’s tenure as Principal and even more lucky to work with and learn from him through various community groups in more recent years including Quairading Curtain Raisers and the Quairading CRC. With one of the strongest moral compasses I’ve known and a passion for doing things right and well, Rowlie was always available to bounce ideas around and help out wherever needed. One of the most local blow-ins to maybe ever grace our town, I’m quite certain his legacy will live on for decades to come. Rowlie was a huge ally of our Noongar community, never missed a NAIDOC celebration or RAP meeting and contributed greatly to building reconciliation. With NAIDOC week on the horizon, I hope many of you take the opportunity to engage with, learn from and appreciate our local Noongar culture and people—just as Rowlie would have. Please enjoy the second last edition of the Banksia Bulletin for 2020, stay safe in paddocks and on the roads as harvest cranks up and don’t forget to shop local first if you’re ready to start Christmas shopping! Oh, and new phone books *should* be available from the CRC by the time you’re ready this! Teary-eyed-Jill signing off.

Please note Surgery phone is answered from 8.30am not 8.00am as were previous hours. See our Hours to the left of this page.

Prescription requests attract a $10 fee per request. This is a blanket fee for all patients. Please allow 48hrs for your script to be available at the front reception. If you receive a script with no repeats, this could mean that your GP may need to see you for a medication review or simply that the Pharmaceutical Benefit Scheme has changed prescribing rules for that particular drug. You should make an appointment to discuss this with your GP. Appointment Times – A standard appointment allows for a 15 minute consultation. Should you have several health issues or believe that you require a long consult please advise reception when booking your appointment. This in turn reduces the waiting times for other patients. Thanking you in advance.

November is Movember Month

Three things you can do this Movember While prostate cancer only occurs in men, everyone can help to combat it. Men, women and children from all walks of life are encouraged to participate in Movember and there are three main ways to get involved:  Grow a Mo. Men are invited to sign up and grow and groom the best moustache they can muster over the 30 days of Movember. During that time you’re encouraged to put the word out to friends, colleagues and workmates to sponsor you by making donations.  Take the move challenge. Everyone’s invited to get physically active during Movember. Run a race, learn to swim, hold a tournament or challenge your friends and raise money by getting everyone to dig deep and support you.  Host an event. Get creative and have a good time for a good cause. Whether it’s a golf tournament, a dinner party, a BBQ or a trivia night, get local businesses, your sports team or your school, church, pub or club involved, and get together in Movember to raise funds for men’s health. How does Movember help? 

  

Movember has grown to become a worldwide charity that makes a real difference. It focuses its funding on three core areas, which are three of the biggest health issues facing men: Prostate cancer. One of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Australian men. Testicular cancer. The second most common cancer affecting men aged 18 to 39. Mental health and suicide prevention. A man dies every minute from suicide somewhere in the world. PAGE 9

National NAIDOC Week 2020

Collated by Jill Hayes with information sourced from local RAP committee representatives and naidoc.org.au

National NAIDOC Week is usually held in July each year but due to uncertainty from the escalating COVID-19 pandemic across communities and cities, this year’s NAIDOC Week is being recognised nationwide from Sunday 8th— Sunday 15th November. In Quiarading we’ve oftern opted to save our celebrations until spring time to make sure we have a beautiful day to celebrate on, so November dates suit us very well! NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aboriginies and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself. ABOUT THE 2020 THEME:

or 1606 - with the arrival of the Dutch on the western coast of the Cape York Peninsula. The very first footprints on this continent were those belonging to First Nations peoples. Our coastal Nations watched and interacted with at least 36 contacts made by Europeans prior to 1770. Many of them resulting in the charting of the northern, western and southern coastlines – of our lands and our waters. For us, this nation’s story began at the dawn of time. NAIDOC 2020 invites all Australians to embrace the true history of this country – a history which dates back thousands of generations.

It’s about seeing, hearing and learning the First Nations’ 65,000+ year history of this country which is Australian history. We want all Always Was, Always Will Be. recognises that First Australians to celebrate that we have the oldest Nations people have occupied and cared for this continuing cultures on the planet and to continent for over 65,000 years. recognise that our sovereignty was never ceded. Always Was, Always Will Be.

We are spiritually and culturally connected to this country.

Always Was, Always Will Be.

This country was criss-crossed by generations of brilliant Nations.


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were Australia’s first explorers, first navigators, first engineers, first farmers, first botanists, first scientists, first diplomats, first astronomers and first artists.

Quairading District High School is celebrating NAIDOC Week with a full week of activities.

Australia has the world’s oldest oral stories. The First Peoples engraved the world’s first maps, made the earliest paintings of ceremony and invented unique technologies. We built and engineered structures - structures on Earth predating well-known sites such as the Egyptian Pyramids and Stonehenge. Our adaptation and intimate knowledge of Country enabled us to endure climate change, catastrophic droughts and rising sea levels. Always Was, Always Will Be. acknowledges that hundreds of Nations and our cultures covered this continent. All were managing the land - the biggest estate on earth - to sustainably provide for their future. Through ingenious land management systems like fire stick farming we transformed the harshest habitable continent into a land of bounty. NAIDOC Week 2020 acknowledges and celebrates that our nation’s story didn’t begin with documented European contact whether in 1770

Monday 9th: Elders will be presenting a ‘Welcome to Country’ at the 9am student briefing Tuesday- Thursday: Aboriginal families will be attending the school to assist with NAIDOC Week activities in the classrooms.

Friday 13th November:

Community NAIDOC Day at QDHS. All community members are welcome to attend with many activities planned, lunch and morning tea supplied. Keep an eye on the Passion Sheet, School Newsletter and emails and social media for further info. We welcome any and all suggestions of activities from community members to quairading.dhs@education.wa.edu.au PAGE 13

It’s been a huge month at the Quairading CRC

October might just have been our busiest month in 2020 so far! No doubt November and December will also be jam packed! Written by Tamara Spark. Food Sensations 10 full size humans (plus a couple of small humans) joined Jill or myself, over 4 weeks on a Wednesday during September and October to increase our understanding of nutrition and food preparation with Food Sensations®. This is not the first time The Quairading CRC has hosted this program but, as with most things 2020, it is the first time the program was delivered to us virtually. Thanks so much to Foodbank WA and BeingThere Video Conferencing, who were able to seamlessly roll out the program to over 40 CRC’s. The program is completely free as it is funded by the Department of Health, plus participants also received recipe books and other helpful resources. On top of that, the main draw card is obviously cooking and enjoying the free lunch and dessert! Wild Woman Workshop We were honoured to host Expat, Kristy Barr, for her maiden ‘Wild Woman’ workshop. Participants were gently guided through a deeper look into their intuition, connection, breathing, meditation and inner wisdom and from all accounts it was an extremely enlightening and invigorating workshop. Our Training Room was transformed into total bliss and we can not wait to get Kristy back to her home turf and do it again. Art Class with Charlie Colbung As you may have noticed, the Quairading CRC has been pretty ‘Charlie’ obsessed of late; we’ve had the pleasure of literally looking over his shoulder as he has created a mural dedicated to the Late Beryl Dick, as well as some of his other amazing recent works—but what was even more exciting was hosting Charlie, here in the Quairading CRC Art Space, leading his own class. Charlie imparted specific techniques and discussed aspects of painting on canvas such as depth perception, foreground vs. background, textures and gradients …and also how to work with any ‘happy accidents’ you make while painting. We had a full house for the workshop and would love to host another in the near future, we are so lucky to have such talent in our back yard and we would be remiss not to make the most of it! Evening on the Green Following on from the art class that afternoon and in to the evening we were serenaded by the über professional Hayden McGlinn, a fellow Wheatbelt local hailing from Lake Grace. Hayden was able to read the crowd like a true pro and catered to every demographic present. Who knew having a substantial amount of The Wiggles in your back catalogue would come in so handy?! He also looked after the baby boomers right through to the millennials with contemporary chilled hits, current pop singles and classic golden oldies. The crowds had only to turn on the spot once the cricket finished (Quairading had a win!), to face the musician, picnic blankets were laid adorned with cheese platters and lip smacking Italian tasting platters à la Flavour Town Catering (if you were smart enough to pre order), children swarmed (my preference over flies) and dancing and lawn games ensued. The evening was a relaxed, family friendly BYO dream and not even the ever present winds were a downer as it kept the flies and mozzies away. Silent Disco What is a Silent Disco you may ask? Well turns out for one, it’s quite loud actually. In partnership with the Quairading Youth Centre, the Quairading CRC coordinated this event as part of 2020 WA Children’s Week. The children were given headphones and a choice of three different music stations to tune into, they were then set free in the training room (replete with flashing colourful disco lights obviously), so they could dance to the beat of their own... headphones. As you may well know when you have headphones on you sometimes loose some of the sense and control over the volume of your voice, and actually it’s rather noisy. Approximately 20 children danced their way through the event and enjoyed some healthy after school snacks, we hope that the late afternoon boogie made for some solid sleepers! What’s next? While we may start slowing down a little as the Christmas / New Year period looms, we ain’t grinding to a halt by any means. We’re excited to be supporting Quairading Rainmakers Inc once again with the second annual ‘A Reinmakers Christmas’ (a hilarious play on words, not a typo FYI) to be held on Friday 4th December. The young and ever-keen Rainmakers members quickly banded together last year to put together a community Christmas party to maintain the legacy of the Quairading Tourist & Tidy Towns Committees legendary parties. With heaps of extra support from local businesses and organisations we’re set for a brilliant evening on the 4th (check out the flyer for more info). We’re also working collaboratively with the Shire of Quairading to present a new and improved Seniors Christmas event! Stay tuned! PAGE 27

Know your local CWA I was recently asked where the money goes that CWA Quairading raise in the community. I suppose you could call us quiet achievers in some respects so I thought I would compile a list for anyone who is unaware of what we do. These items are in no particular order and many are ongoing throughout the years. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

17. 18. 19. 20.

We paid for the water fountain with attached dog drinking bowl located in the carpark opposite Co-op entrance. We provided two bird baths for the hospital. We provide toiletry bags (with soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, comb and razor) to the hospital for persons who are admitted who do not have these items with them. We provided a laptop computer for the air rifles club. We fully sponsor two persons between the ages of 17 to 25 to attend a Young Leadership Weekend Workshop; we endeavour to do this on an annual basis. We would like to encourage members of the community to nominate someone. We subsidised AVIVO to hold Yorga meetings in the rooms every Wednesday. We have held Mental Health Information days during Mental Health Week. We held an Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training Course, with all in attendance receiving certificates. A donation was made to the Harrison Woodcock Ballet Trust Fund. Education Scholarships are available for high school students and tertiary students. We provide welfare assistance to people in hardship in the Shire of Quairading. We also provide assistance to residents for medical aids who are in hardship. Each year there are scholarships available for rural medical, dental, nursing and agricultural students. With donated wool we make up rugs, beanies, scarves and toys for children in Wanslea Children’s Foster Home and a women’s refuge. Baby bundles are made for those people in financial difficulty. Support is provided to victims of rape in refugee camps. Costs were made by Head Office to assist a member of Quairading Branch to attend the National Association of Rural Mental Health Conference in Denver, USA who was the only International speaker. This was also a study tour to learn about Peer run services in USA and how they compare to Australia. We have commenced an Arts scholarship for students who attend dance, music or other extra-curricular activities. Donations of jeans are made to the homeless. Bras are sent overseas to women who are unable to obtain them. Drought Assistance is provided for affected farmers and contractors who work for farmers. These contractors lose a lot of their business due to the farming drought.

There is so much more that we do so how about coming along to join our group who have been in your community for over 95 years this year. Rosemary Mills Hon. Secretary, Quairading Branch

St John WA - Benefit Fund Update With the introduction of the new St John WA Benefit Fund membership cards, most Quairading membership renewals have been processed very smoothly. However, there have been issues needing attention. These have mostly related to adult children who have long since turned 18 still being on family memberships, when they do need to take out a membership in their own right, or additions to families that have not been added to the membership. The sub centre is appreciative of the patience shown while sorting these issues. Another common concern has been membership renewals not arriving as early as in the past. Traditionally, memberships have been sent 6 – 7 weeks before they are due. With the arrival of the new membership cards, renewal reminders will now come from Perth and will only arrive 3 – 4 weeks before they are due. As always memberships may continue to be paid by bank transfer, mail or in person at the post office. We are now able to also accept payments by credit card. Should you wish to pay by credit card, or have any other queries regarding the St John WA Benefit Fund, please feel free to contact the sub centre on 9645 0176 (Wednesday only) or email: Quairading.Subcentre@stjohnwa.com.au







Gardening in the Wheatbelt Written by Carmela Kriszyk of Eaglewood Farm Lovely spring weather is what we expect at this time of the year and we certainly have not been disappointed. It goes without saying that a little more rain or even some rain in early October would have been appreciated but as the Rolling Stones sang, “you can’t always get what you want”. So now as the days get longer and a little warmer we’ll wait for rain after harvest is finished. During the Garden Party for Tidy Towns many ladies expressed an interest in being involved in a garden club. I am happy to act as the convener for the first meeting and then we’ll go from there. All you need to be involved is an interest in gardening, if that is you, please call me and we’ll start the ball rolling or a plant metaphor that means the same thing. Plant of the Month This section is a little different this month because it occurred to me that we hadn’t looked at how we can make our gardens more sustainable. I have compiled a list of 10 easy things you can do to achieve greater sustainability and a more beautiful garden. 1. Make your own compost. 2. Start a worm farm. 3. Reduce water use by watering deep, before a hot spell and in the cool of the day. 4. Reduce the use of pesticides and herbicides. 5. Propagate; grow your own plants from seed, dividing or cuttings. 6. Grow plants that are suited to the conditions in your area and more specifically in your garden. 7. Use free water where ever possible that may be rain water collected in dams or tanks (not really free, I know) and also look to using grey water from the shower and laundry. 8. Group plants with similar needs together and needy plants where you will see them in your normal daily habits. 9. Plant new plants out in autumn, all plants besides some annuals and tropical plants benefit. 10. Mulch! Mulch! Mulch! Cut this out and put it up on your fridge and next year I’ll attempt to expand on each of these. It’s time to… Plant – November is a great time to start getting ready for a great Christmas display. Try colour coordinating with your outdoor setting or with whatever grabs your fancy. For an outdoor area where you might be entertaining at night remember white flowering plants really glow in the dark. Petunias do well particularly with a little

shade, as do vinca and zinnia, plant all these close together and in large numbers to have a really bright and beautiful display. Heat loving and tropical plants can be put in now Bougainvilleas, Passion Fruit vines, also Paw Paws and Mangoes but only if you can protect them from frosts in winter. This is a good month to plant the top eight summer veggies; Zucchinis, Pumpkins, Tomatoes, Corn, Eggplants, Lettuce, Melons and Cucumbers. Harvest – Hicks Mulberries, some citrus are still being harvested, in late November some early apricots will be ready, as will the first zucchinis. Asparagus are still bountiful; it’s been a good crop this year. Things to do – In general watering should be stepped up as this month goes on. Dead heading roses is very important as it will encourage the plant to start a new bud. Once a week water roses deeply, for established roses that is enough water, for newly planted roses water more frequently. Lawns need a deep watering at least once per week and maybe twice if there is a heat wave, mow frequently but not too short. Prune spring flowering plants for shape and new growth. Fertilise and trim hedges. While we still have days of below 30 degrees check your citrus trees for scale, spray with eco oil and stop ants with sticky paper wrapped around the trunk or with petroleum jelly applied on the trunk. Shade veggies and mulch all garden beds. Check your soil isn’t water repellent; apply a soil wetter if it is. If you have wooden stakes for trees check that they haven’t been attacked by white ants which will then move into the tree roots and kill your tree. Keep and eye on the compost pile don’t let it dry out; it needs to stay at the consistency of a moist sponge (not cake, haha). Check the irrigation system for blocked sprinklers and drippers. The last word – When gardeners garden, it’s not just the plants that grow, the gardeners do too. (Adapted from K. Druse)

Steepened Perspective pics is like Janet’s selfie pic of BIG BOOTS where you make an object at the front of the pic look bigger than an object at the rear of the pic. This is achieved by getting very close to the boots Since the last Photo Club report I have been to exaggerate the focal point + getting your busy with the other Quairading Vintage Club camera lens on the right angle to create a members tinkering away getting all those look that makes the boots look bigger in size little things sorted on lots of the tractors so than Janet in the background. Cameras the engines were running ready for the these days can do amazing things but it was Vintage Rally. Three days after that event Janet’s creativity & experimenting that we had our Photo Club meeting & I realised figured out the best view point + where to when driving to the October meeting that position everything + what angle to put her being a Photo Club member is just too easy camera on to capture an award winning 3rd compared to getting 20 or so Vintage placed pic. engines running prior to the Vintage Day. It’s so easy to push a camera button that Flattened Perspective Photography is where releases the shutter mechanism on your you shoot a pic of 2 objects that have a camera and have your task completed, distance between them that you with your compared to many other chosen projects camera can make to look like they are that may be your favourite hobby.

Photography Section. The subject Perspective was a bit complex to explain Last month’s competition subject was but for us photo clubbers it was actually a “PERSPECTIVE” with only 1 point separating really good subject where we patches on 1st & 2nd place in the competition & some patches learnt more about what you can do of the same names standing on the podium with your camera, we learnt more skills and again being Kelli, David & Janet. When I more photo talk lingo. thought about Perspective pics to take I didn’t realise until doing some research that Our next months subject is “POLISHED” and Perspective Photography is actually akin to we will have our Poster ready for sale a style of photography.

100 YEARS OLD AND STILL GOING STRONG The 1920 International Titan Tractor took pride of place at the Quairading Vintage Machinery Rally held in perfect conditions on Saturday 10th October 2020. The tractor was owned by the Stacey family and believed to be the first tractor in the Quairading district. As the 100the anniversary of the Quairading show was cancelled due to the pandemic the Quairading Vintage Club held a Vintage Machinery Rally in its place for 2020. 500 people enjoyed the working display of around 200 machines and vehicles and partied into the night with live music. Quairading Vintage Club president Peter Smith and his committee were delighted with the inaugural event and planning is already in place for 2021.

Warrior Wellbeing

Smartphones—Friend or Foe? A recent article by the Australian Psychological Society identified that Australians are the fourth biggest smartphone users in the world. Aussies spend an average of 2.5 hours per day on their phone; this equates to 38 days per year. These figures are not surprising when you think about it. Consider last time you were on the bus or at the pub, how many people had their eyes glued to their screens? How is all this time in front of a screen impacting our health and wellbeing? Using smartphone social media apps (Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram etc.) to keep in touch with friends or family and stay updated on community events is a beneficial and convenient way to stay connected. This is especially true for blokes in remote areas where face to face contact with our mates is not always possible. Smartphones have also made other aspects of our lives easier; we can now look at tomorrow’s weather or check the footy score with the touch of a screen. There are also many health apps that some people find beneficial to their mental health and overall wellbeing. There is research, however, that suggests compulsive use of our devices can negatively affect our health. Researchers have even started using the term ‘smartphone addiction’ for people who have an inability to regulate their use. The addictive nature of smartphones is likely due to the instant gratification we get from every text message we receive or like we get on our Facebook posts. Overuse and dependency on smartphones can sometimes have negative impacts on our wellbeing by:  Increasing loneliness and depression;  Fueling anxiety;  Increasing stress levels;  Disturbing our sleep. Another thing to consider when replacing face to face communication with online communication is what makes the biggest impression in how we communicate? The

research tells us our body language (visual) is 55%, how we speak (voice/tone) is 38% and the words (verbal) are only 7%. So, if we are trying to communicate with a mate via social media how much meaning is getting lost in translation? It is also very easy for guys to ‘filter’ their online presence to make the appearance of a ‘perfect’ life. This can make it difficult for our support groups to identify when we are going through a rough patch. If our smartphone use is causing us to lose interest in the things we usually enjoy, or we are using them as a replacement to physical relationships it might be time to consider a ‘digital detox’. This doesn’t mean cutting use out completely, rather just cutting back. Helpful ways we can achieve this include:  Replacing use with more fulfilling activities. This could be by interacting with our kids, partner or mates more. I know I would feel better doing this than just refreshing my newsfeeds for hours on end;  Removing the temptation. This method had great results in combating other addictions (like alcoholism or gambling). We can charge our phones in the lounge at night, so we don’t check it during the night or leave the phone in the smoko room at work, rather than in our pocket. Let’s control the way we use technology, not let it control us! Working with Warriors® Podcast Series. The podcast was launched on the 19th June 2020 and is based on conversations around men’s wellbeing and health from our “Working with Warriors®” education sessions. The short podcasts regarding a man’s approach to his wellbeing and health are now available to listen via our website or on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and numerous other podcast directories.

Legs Last Ball by Vincent Hadlow

The following was written about 40 yearsthago and is based on an actual game between the Dangin and Wamenusking cricket clubs on the 15 of December, 1979. The players, scores and incidents are all as it happened. It was an incredible game that went to the last batsman and the last ball! Remember that at the time of this match the Quairading CA wasn’t a limited overs competition. The games finished at 6 o’clock on the dot. Just in time for the Sunday session in the Sportsman’s Bar at the local club!! LEGS LAST BALL by Vincent Hadlow The toss had been made and the batsmen moved out To the wicket, where the fielding team gathered about. George polished the ball and marked out his run. Bill took his guard, then blinked out the sun. The umpire called play, the first over’s on line. A maiden. “Well bowled. That suits us just fine.” Bullit’s on next and he’s opened up well. Four overs had gone when he let out a yell. “Howzat!” Caught behind. The team gave a roar And the finger went up. One for five was the score. The opening spell was as tight as you’ll see. After eighteen overs it was twenty-five for three. The skipper was Potts and he gave George the nod. “Well bowled Old Timer. Here, give me the cod. I’ll try out my spinners. Get ‘em with guile.” Then he bowled on in tandem with Bullit for a while. A short time on and it’s medium pace As Bimbo trundled up with the wind in his face. Potts spun and Bim swung in the afternoon sun, ‘Til with three wickets each, the innings was done. Two catches to Nicol and two more to Leg And it’s back to the rooms for a squash and a cig. The scorebook was checked. “That’s not to tough. One hundred and twelve – get ‘em easy enough!” The umpires gave Cobber and Bimbo their blocks. The batsmen went “gardening”, they adjusted their box. But the scorers had not even sharpened their lead When both of the openers were back in the shed. Two wickets for one – just a bit of a hitch As Mini and Chook made their way to the pitch. Min was caught in the slips. He’d only made nine. A neat looking stroke. Just played the wrong line. This bought Captain “Potts” to the crease for a look. “Gotta lead from the front, get the team off the hook.” He played with some dash – Chook defensively As they carried the score up to seventy-three. Alas. Potts was clean bowled. Their “tweaker” bowled well. First the skipper, then Rac, in an accurate spell. Rac had made five, as did Gary Nics Who was bowled by young Robson – one hundred for six. Thirteen required – four wickets in hand. Ahh, Chook was still in. “The games in the can.” Bullit went in and Bullit went out. Then it was George. “He’ll give it a clout.” At seven for one hundred and one things looked tight. “They’re batting OK. We’ll get them alright”. This pair batted well, but when one hundred and eight PAGE 46



Chook was clean bowled. He played the ball late. Five runs to get, two wickets to lose. Who’d want to be in Lou Hoskins’ shoes? As he strode to the crease Father Time had his say. Only 10 minutes left to the closing of play. Lou took his block and faced the overs’ last ball And he just kept it out to the relief of us all. Two overs to play as George took his stance. Potts chewed on his smoke, he could not even glance As George edged a single. “We only want four.” But then Lou was bowled. “I can’t take anymore!” Last man Leg marched out to George. “Don’t panic old son, Only four runs to get and this game will be won.” The rooms had gone quiet. Bullit was at his ends’ wits. The scorer had chewed half his pencil to bits. Bimbo gnawed at his cap. Cob could not even look. Rac had gone for a shower. “Can we do it?” asked Chook. But out on the pitch things were under control. Leg played out the over. Six balls left to bowl. George faced the first. A swing and a miss. “I don’t think my heart can take more of this.” The next ball was edged down into the slips, The bowler, he glared, stood with hands on his hips. The third ball was driven, a beautiful shot. Two to the tally, two more to be got. The fourth ball was missed. Two left to the close Then the next one was played past the silly point’s nose. They balked. They scampered. “Well run George. Well placed.” The scores were now level, one delivery to face. Leg looked composed. No panic to show As he leant on his bat and faced up to the foe. Silence. Young Robson ran up past the ump. Leg patted his bat down in front of his stumps. He put his foot forward and swung the ball high Through the covers. It’s safe! “Run!” is the cry. They charged down the pitch. The throw’s on the way. “He’s home!” roared his teammates. “Old Leg’s won the day!” The team went to the club for a beer or three. A toast to the heroes – to their victory. “The last ball Leg. That’s cutting it fine.” “Don’t worry, it was under control all the time.” “We won’t forget this one.” Said Min to us all. The day Leg won the game off the very last ball. THE PLAYERS DANGIN Eddie Hadlow (Cobber); Merv White (Bimbo); Eric Hayes (Mini); Colin Hayes (Chook); Greg Hadlow (Potts); Richie Walker (Rac); Gary Nicol (Nics); Vincent Hadlow (Bullit); Graeme Anderson (George); Lyn Hoskins (Lou); Graeme Gelmi (Leg). WAMENUSKING Bill Handscombe (Bill); Ian Robson (Young Robson). Blocks – the umpires give the batsmen their guard. The batsman scratches a mark in front of the stumps. Gardening – when the batsman walks the pitch patting down any cracks or loose bits. (Usually nothing there!) Box – the protector of the batsmen’s vital parts.




Some Memories of Indoor Cricket By Geoff Stone

Earlier this year a meeting of the Quairading Indoor Cricket Association was advertised, calling for any interested past members to attend to discuss the winding up of the Association and the distributing any cash assets. This was held and it was agreed to wind up the Association. It was thought before the memory of indoor cricket faded completely a short history of the Quairading Indoor Cricket Association should be written.

(Noel Stone recalls a game of ‘indoor cricket’ also occurring in a shed at Wardstone during a BBQ on Good Friday 1/4/1983 followed by the game at South Caroling the same Easter)

The seed was sown and a meeting was held in the Quairading town hall to canvas the idea of starting up indoor cricket in Quairading. Leading this push was Graham (George) Anderson, Darryl Shenton and Don Brown. This was possibly because George thought it was a good idea to As the minute book recording the start of the start indoor cricket and that Darryl and Don had Quairading Indoor Cricket Association cannot be agreed that their empty building could be used. located, I will record my memories of the start At this meeting it was decided to go ahead to of indoor cricket in Quairading. I stress that they form the Quairading Indoor Cricket Association are only my memories of how it happened. and a committee to organise this was elected. Graham Anderson was elected president, the The eastern half of the buildings that now house secretary was (possibly) Greg Richards, vice Quairading Agri Services used to be the chairman Rod Simpson?, treasurer Geoff Stone Quairading indoor cricket centre. Back in the and several ordinary committee members. 1950s and 60s it was Ettridge’s garage which sold amongst other machinery Massey Ferguson It was agreed to rent the vacant building owned tractors. There were petrol bowsers outside the by Shenton Machinery. We probably received a front of the shop next to the road on the edge of Community Recreational grant to purchase the pavement. Quite a few of the shops in the carpet, netting and equipment. Several well main street at that time sold petrol, so there attended working bees were held to strip the were also bowsers outside the Quairading building of all the internal partitioning that had Farmers Co-operative building (IGA), Slater, made up offices and other internal rooms, then Shenton and Co’s International Harvester the carpet was laid the nets hung on the wire Company dealership, Kevill’s Chamberlain rope that was attached to the walls to enclose dealership and outside the Quairading tearooms, the playing arena, lighting was improved and we when they were built (in the early 1960s, I were ready to go. think). In the 1960s Ettridge’s built new premises (now Quairading Tyre and Battery) and Teams consisted of eight players, though most moved there. At some stage the building housed teams had ten people so they were sure of a tyre repair shop and I guess Shenton fielding eight members when playing. The cost Machinery’s principals, Darryl Shenton and Don to play was forty dollars per team per game, Brown either owned the business or bought the which amounted to five dollars per person when building and business because at some stage the eight people were playing. There also was a tyre business moved into the Shenton Machinery membership fee to the Association of ten dollars buildings, leaving the building that was to (I think) per member for the playing season. This become the Quairading Indoor Cricket Centre money was used to buy trophies for the winners vacant. and runner-ups which were engraved by Noel Stone. The money collected each game night It was the early 1980s, Easter Monday, at the was used to pay the weekly rent. In the early windup of the South Caroling Social Club’s Easter years of playing we had nineteen teams playing, tennis tournament and tennis season. Late into six in men’s A grade, seven in B grade and six in the night the tables in the South Caroling hall the women’ competition, being played over were pushed to one side and the boys (I am sure three nights of the week with three games each the ladies would not have done such a thing) night. We even had a team that came over from started to play cricket in the hall. I only have Cunderdin to play. At first the games were this as hearsay as I had already gone home umpired by volunteers from other teams, before the game started. I have been told that however it was falling on the same people all one batsman made a tremendous hit that the time and eventually the umpiring was done headed straight for a window, luckily the by the team that was batting. Balls were window was open and the ball sailed harmlessly relatively expensive and to make them last out into the night. longer they were lacquered after the games PAGE 48


each week. This task was done for a long time by Bradley Chatfield. It is dangerous territory naming names as a lot of people gave their time to help indoor cricket and you will always leave somebody out who did a lot, and indoor cricket thanks you for your support, but one person I will mention is Larry Wittorff who often was doing something to help. With the number of teams we had competing, while indoor cricket was being played we had plenty of money to pay the rent and other running costs, power, balls etc. However, as we had to pay rent for 52 weeks of the year, the committee could see that in the short term we could earn enough money while playing to pay the rent the for the rest of the year when we were not playing. However, if the popularity of the sport dropped off it was obvious that we would not have the money to pay rent when we were not playing. With this in mind an offer was made to purchase the building from Shenton machinery. The offer was accepted. To pay for the building we borrowed money from a few people in the community paying them interest at a rate above the rate they could get on an interest bearing deposit but below what we would have paid if we had borrowed the money from a bank, a win win for both us and our investors. In due course we paid off our debts and I would like to thank those members of the public who took the risk and had faith in indoor cricket and the committee for their support, without you, indoor cricket would not have lasted as long as it did.


no agreement was reached as to what organisation should benefit from the cash assets of the association. It was decided to invest the money and each year grant the interest to help different organisations achieve a set goal. Organisations helped over the years included several junior sporting clubs, the Quairading sub branch of St John Ambulance, the Quairading Childcare Centre, the Creative Arts Society, the Quairading Agricultural Society, the Quairading Ladies Bowling Club, Quairading Ballet/Dance Group, the Quairading Youth Club, the Stay on Your Feet Group and the Hospital Auxiliary. As a result of the meeting held earlier this year it was decided to donate to the following junior sporting clubs, Netball, Football, Golf, Tennis, Hockey, Aquatic and Cricket. We also donated to the School, the Youth Centre and the Playground Project. The remainder of the funds were donated to the Quairading Future Fund. Once the money was distributed the Quairading Indoor Cricket Association’s incorporation was cancelled. I am not sure what the Quairading Shire’s population was in the 1980s, 1100-1200 people, I guess. So, looking back on the Quairading Indoor Cricket Association I believe it was quite an achievement to have around 190 people out of 1100 actively involved in the one sporting club.

Occasionally the Indoor Cricket Centre was used by the school and it was sometimes used by different community groups for a social game of indoor cricket. After two or three years Graham Anderson retired as the president. He was awarded a life membership of the association for his drive and leadership in getting Indoor Cricket Association started. Rod Simpson was elected as the new Can you recall any mens or ladies indoor cricket president and served in this role for a number of team names? We’ve noted include Jack’s Giants, years. Galahs, Wesley, Wammo, Roos, Rooettes. By the end of the 1990s, numbers dwindled as some of the older players retired and teams found it hard to put eight players on the pitch, especially if it was a cold, wet windy night. At the end of 2004, the president, Bill Shenton called a meeting to discuss the future of the association. As there were virtually no members and the association was losing money, it was decided to sell the building to Aaron Stone, the proprietor of Quairading Agri Services, dispose of all the assets and wind up the association. Once the sale was completed a meeting was held but

If you have some memories to add, as well as team names, please contact the Quairading CRC so they can be added and saved for historical purposes. On behalf of the recipients of funds as a result of the winding up of the Quairading Indoor Cricket Association, sincere thanks to all past members/players and those involved with the distribution process. Your belief and passion in the future of our community is acknowledge and greatly appreciated. PAGE 49

Uniting Church Coraling Street The gospel readings this month continue to emphasize the opposition shown to Jesus, with questions about His authority, HE tells some parables that in a way points to the future. The story about the Tenants behaviour in treating the land owner by killing his son suggests the crucifixion of Jesus, He then goes on to tell a parable to explain what the kingdom of heaven is like it is like a great feast that the king invites certain people to attend but they do not come, so the invitation goes out to those in the street. We need to respond to that invitation. There are those who still want to discredit Jesus so two groups who would normally oppose one another come together to trap Him by asking questions to trap Him about taxes. Last week Jesus turns His attention to the importance of love, 'Love God with all your being and your neighbor as your self. Some times this is hard to do but it could be part of the invitation.
