Now it’s winter we find ourselves in the midst of footy season and I for one am absolutely loving it. Regardless of results, this is my favourite time of year when we sort out which teams are all hype and which are the real deal. So far, the Brothers boys under new coach Dean Daylight have been performing well above expectations and have been giving a number of the favoured teams something to think about. There’s still a long way to go, but all we ask is that they give it everything. And that’s exactly what they’re doing. Exciting times are ahead. In keeping with the theme, this edition contains an article about winter warmers by Chrissy and an appreciation of red wine from Hallsy. The profile on one of our community partners, the Salvos, is also very timely and I urge you to do what you can to support their winter appeal. Other stories on the following pages will help you get to know some of our regular entertainers a bit better and you will learn about the most recent addition to our Kindred Clubs. The ever popular Jokes for Frank is back again as well as details of all our free weekly entertainment and some upcoming feature shows that I know are going to be popular. Around the club you’ll notice we’ve recently introduced My Ticket, which is Maxgaming’s Ticket In Ticket Out product. We are confident it is going to lead to better service for our members and are looking forward to rolling out new initiatives over the months ahead. Our Operations Manager, Graham McMullin has written a more detailed explanation of My Ticket on page 6. We have some big events coming up this winter such as the Ipswich Cup After Party in June, the Confraternity Rugby League Carnival leading into July and the Seniors Week Morning Tea in August. And of course, our Choose Your Own Adventure promotion will be drawn on 28 June when one of our members is going to win a holiday to pretty much wherever they want to go. Enjoy reading and I look forward to seeing you at the Club. Cheers,


Choose Your Own

Adventure! Our major promotion is drawn on June 28 and one lucky member will get to choose their very own adventure of a lifetime. Imagine spending a week in paradise at the magnificent Maldives. You and a friend could enjoy the tranquillity of a Water Villa set in the turquoise waters of remote Shaviyani Atoll. Blending optimal seclusion with supreme comfort, take advantage of the spectacular setting on a sunset cruise or take a day trip to a deserted island. For the more adventurous there’s plenty of watercraft to play with or find out why it’s known internationally as one of the world’s best dive destinations. How about a family fun holiday in the United States for two adults and two kids spending seven nights at Disney’s Grand Californian? The kids will love having dinner with one of Disney’s famous characters while you enjoy your three day pass to Disneyland Park and Disney’s Adventure Park. See behind the scenes of a Hollywood movie during your Front of Line tour of Universal Studios and find out just how awesome everything is on your tour of Legoland California. Perhaps you’d prefer to live it up in

style at Las Vegas? Starting with a chauffeured limousine ride from the airport to the Cosmopolitan, you and a friend could spend seven nights in a Wraparound Terrace Suite with panoramic views of the Vegas Skyline. Enjoy five star dining, catch a show or try your luck in one of the many casinos on the famous Vegas Strip or soar high above it all on a sunset helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon. If it’s a touch of romance you’re after, take that someone special on a thirteen day discovery cruise along the Blue Danube. Enjoy guided sightseeing in Budapest, Regensburg, Passau, and in magical Vienna. See the fifteenth century baroque Stiftskirche in Durnstein; participate in a wine tasting and guided visit of the Benedictine Abbey in Melk before spending three nights and plenty of free time in the “Golden City” of Prague.

Where would you go if you won a holiday to just about anywhere?

catamarans, paddle skis, windsurfers and snorkelling equipment all included with your stay in a two bedroom deluxe holiday home. Go diving, take a scenic helicopter ride or simply spend your days soaking up the sun or indulging in a massage. You could also take one of the many daytrip tours on offer of the incredible Whitsundays and unparalleled Great Barrier Reef. Of course, these are merely suggestions. The adventure you choose is entirely up to you. Where would you go?

AROUND THE CLUB WITH GRAHAM

Introducing

My Ticket

In early May we activated the most significant change to our gaming floor in years with the introduction of Maxgaming’s My Ticket system.

My Ticket is what is known in the industry as Ticket In Ticket Out (or TITO) technology. In simple terms, it is a way for players to transfer money between machines or to collect winnings without requiring assisted cash payouts. For any collect up to $199.99 a My Ticket enabled machine at Brothers will print a ticket with a barcode and details of the payment. This ticket can be read by other My Ticket machines by feeding it through the note acceptor or can be cashed in by the player at a Cash Redemption Terminal (CRT) located on the gaming floor. For our customers, it means less time waiting for hand pays or getting change from the cashier. The majority of payouts will not require an attendant to be involved and the credits from one machine are easily transferred to another via the ticket. However, collects of $200 or more will still require a hand payment and those machines that are not My Ticket enabled will continue to operate exactly the same as before. From our perspective, fewer hand

pays, hopper refills and coin jams will free up floor staff to be more attentive to our customers so we can deliver a greater level of service. This is our ultimate aim and the principal reason for introducing the new system. Just over half of our machines have already been upgraded to work with the My Ticket system. This number will increase over time as machines are routinely replaced. As we make customers familiar with the new system, My Ticket enabled machines can be easily identified by the signs attached to the side or by the presence of a ticket printer. TITO is a proven technology that has been available in casinos around the world for many years. Clubs in NSW have had TITO since 2007 and after extensive trialling in Queensland it was finally approved for use in clubs by the State Government last year. It is important for patrons to remember that the tickets produced by My Ticket are no more and no less secure than cash. If you lose one, they can just as easily be taken by someone else as if you had lost a twenty dollar

note. And while tickets can be redeemed up to a year after they were issued, this becomes complicated if they are damaged, for example, after going through the wash. For this reason, we recommend you cash in all of your My Tickets prior to leaving the club. We are very excited by the opportunities made possible by My Ticket and are looking forward to rolling out further enhancements to customer service in the coming months. As with anything new, there will no doubt be a period of adjustment for both staff and Members. I am pleased to report that early feedback by members has been very positive. Once you have had an opportunity to make yourself familiar with My Ticket, I am confident you will find the new system surprisingly simple to use. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please ask one of our floor staff, including myself. We would be more than happy to walk you through it. I look forward to seeing you around the club.

It’s a Kind of

Magic Challenging people’s most basic assumptions of what they know to be real is all in a day’s work for Josh Norbido.

My first “ ambition was to make magic my living. | JOSH NORBIDO

And while he often leaves them in a state of confusion and disbelief, his charismatic performance keeps them coming back for more. Josh has been performing up close illusions at Brothers every Thursday evening for more than six months. He describes his form of “mingle magic” as being light hearted, fun entertainment with a little something for people of all ages. “I’m just walking in amongst the guests and entertaining them with some sleight of hand, mind reading and magic, and throwing in a few jokes” Josh explains. “I call it entertainment rather than magic because sometimes I’m just chatting to them and joking around if they’ve been here a few times.”

Josh discovered magic at a young age after his parents gave him a magic set containing plastic cups and balls, some ropes and a trick deck of cards. His first public performance was at his primary school library. “I literally just took the box set of tricks, sat them on a table in the library and had heaps of kids crowding around to see it. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. I would just pick up one trick out of the box and I would do that. It was probably terrible but it was really fun.” “I think the kids were really intrigued. I don’t know if it was just because they wanted to play with the tricks as well. I kept the crowd for the whole lunch hour so it can’t have been that bad!”


Over the years that followed, Josh continued to experiment with a few card tricks in his spare time. But he wasn’t seriously considering performing magic as a possible career. Instead, he completed courses in personal training and started working at a gym. “But what happened was my love for magic got me in trouble. I’d be practicing my sleight of hand with cards. Instead of working I’d be practicing in the office. Eventually I just realised that’s probably what I should be doing.” The real turning point came thanks to a chance meeting with a professional magician at a birthday party who went on to become Josh’s mentor. “I had a magician come perform and now we’re good friends. We still speak a lot. He’s been able to watch my career progress. The rest is history.” Josh’s first professional gig was performing at a party for a $100 for one of his colleagues at the gym. He organised to have a photographer and a videographer on hand to put together a promo. But even after thousands of hours of practice, he found the expectation to perform for money and in front of cameras to be confronting. “I got through it. And I always remember it because it was the first time. But it was very nerve-wracking when the pressure hits you. The things I did, that

I performed, I’d practised a thousand hours of each one. But as soon as I knew I was in front of people, it was an experience!” Josh is now a lot more relaxed and has gone on to develop both his roaming magic and a stage show. One of his favourite memories was his first time performing on stage at the casino at the Gold Coast. “I’ll always remember that. Because that was for a big audience and you get that big roar when they applaud. It was really fun.” Pushing boundaries in the ongoing battle between the rational mind and the visual senses is one of the challenges that appeals to Josh. His favourite tricks to perform are the ones that are a bit risky and where he knows he could get caught. “I like doing a lot of things that use misdirection. So I have to make sure I direct the person’s attention so they don’t see what’s going on. A good example is I do a trick with a coin and I make it disappear and reappear underneath the person’s watch without them knowing that I’ve even come near their watch or their hand and secretly put it there.” Josh says there’s never really a wrong outcome of a trick. If it doesn’t go according to the original plan he simply adjusts the act. Half the time the best shows are the ones that take an unexpected turn.

“I had an egg break in my pocket once and that was terrible. It was at the start of the show as well. When you reach in your pocket and you feel this egg yolk you’re sweating bullets. I just had to change what I was doing and not do a trick using an egg, obviously. I just took off my jacket and kept going. And people who were there that night would say it was a good show. But if they knew all the things that went wrong for me…it was crazy!” Looking forward, Josh is keen to use his magic to see the world. “My first ambition was to make it my living and not have to do anything else and now that I’m here I just want to continue only doing this. But I would like to start doing work on cruise ships so I can see the world as I do what I enjoy.” When Josh isn’t at Brothers he’s usually at private events. Anyone looking to add a little magic to their party is more than welcome to contact him through his website at mysteriousproductions.com. In the meantime you can catch Josh for some free mingle magic every Thursday at Brothers from 6pm-8.30pm. “I’m always working on new things. Every week I have something new I bring to the table when I come. They never really see the same thing twice. I’ve got some stuff up my sleeve I’m still working on. One of which involves a goldfish. But I won’t go into that too much.”

EVERY THURSDAY AT BROTHERS FREE FROM 6-8.30PM

IN THE COMMUNITY

Supporting the Salvos

Ray is taking part in the Positive Lifestyle Program

Jacqui & fellow Caseworker John preparing food to distribute to the needy of Ipswich

Regulars at Brothers would be familiar with the Salvos who drop in each week collecting donations and offering a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on and a heart of compassion to patrons and guests.

Jacqui Stringer is a Doorways Caseworker at the Ipswich Branch of the Salvation Army. She says the visits to Brothers are more than just about rattling the tin. “It means we are kept up to date with local information and we have the opportunity to build rapport with the Brothers members and staff.” Jacqui first became involved with the Salvation Army in 2011 during flood recovery when she was given a life changing opportunity to work on the Salvos Transport and Logistics Team. She says the journey has brought many blessings and opportunities to makes a difference in people’s lives. The Salvos is a Christian organisation working within the local community to help individuals and families in need. This can come in many different forms such as providing financial assistance, information and advocacy, pastoral care or just being a friendly face that you can chat to. They even offer free computer access to people who might need to use the internet at their office

10

in the back of the Family Store at 133 Brisbane Street. This is also where clients such as Ray can meet with the Caseworkers to take part in the Positive Lifestyle Program (PLP). Jacqui says the PLP is a ten week life skills program delivered in a one on one setting with topics including Self Awareness, Building Self Esteem, Conflict Resolution, Stress Management, Grief and Loss to mention a few. “The PLP has changed the lives of many people and is available to anyone.” Winter is a critical time of year for the Salvos. Last year they distributed an entire pallet of heaters (about 60) to people in the local area who were suffering from the cold. Their storeroom shelves will be full of blankets at the start of the season but will be emptied before winter’s end because the demand is that great. During these colder months the Salvos

welcome donations of non-perishable foods & blankets for their blanket drive to go to local community members who are doing it tough. “We’re also accepting good quality clothing, manchester, furniture, electrical & bric a brac for our Family Store” Jacqui says. “We live by the slogan; your donation, your purchase, can help change someone else’s life” If you would like to help the Salvos support the local community you can volunteer at the Family Store and Salvo Connect site at 133 Brisbane Street Ipswich. Volunteers must complete a Police check and importantly bring a smile with them. For all donations to the Family Store please call 3202 1668. For all program information and general enquiries please contact the Church Office at 62 South St Ipswich or phone 3812 3117. And of course, next time you see them at Brothers say g’day and maybe drop in a coin or two.

BEHIND THE BAR WITH HALLSY

The Joy of

Reds In my opinion, there’s never a bad time for a nice glass of red, but winter is absolutely perfect.

The cooler weather lends itself to good eating, and good eating is made all the better when accompanied by a wine to match. Don’t think of it as an addition to a meal, but the completion of a meal. For many people, red wine is an acquired taste and not everyone is a fan. But if you match your wine with the right foods it can make all the difference. One of the joys of wine is the almost limitless combinations of flavours made possible by different grape varieties and growing conditions. Luckily for us, Australia produces some of the best. The juice from most red wine grapes is actually greenish-white. The colour and flavour components are extracted from the grape skin and wines can range in colour from pink to almost black. In general, those from cooler regions tend to be paler and warmer regions produce darker wines. Age will also affect the colour ranging from intense violet in young wines, through to brick red for mature wines and brown for older red wines. When it comes to pairing with food, the old rules of what goes with what are highly subjective and probably outdated. People have different palates and inclinations and everyone will make their own combinations. If you like sweet wine with a juicy steak, fine. If you enjoy a dryer wine with honey chicken, more power to you. However, there are a few rules of thumb that you should keep in mind when making your selection. In theory, a slightly sweetened or bitter course accentuates the dryness (acidity, tannins) of a wine. So for

12

many people, hard wines don’t go well with sweet food. On the other hand, the more a dish is salty or acidic, the sweeter the wine will taste. And if you are really want the wine to be the star of the show; a simple course leaves room for the wine to shine. Red wine has been making in-roads in Australia for many years, and today, there are more varieties of red wine available than ever before. Australia’s red wine makers are some of the world’s finest, and leading wine regions, such as the Barossa and Clare Valleys in South Australia, the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, the Margaret River region in Western Australia, and the Freycinet Peninsula in Tasmania, are producing wine from a growing number of grape varieties. A few of the most popular red wine grape varieties available in Australia include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Shiraz Australia is known the world over for its big, bold and spicy Shiraz (sometimes called Syrah) which is well suited to the Australian climate. It is popular with growers here because large quantities of grapes can be produced on a single vine, even in low fertile soils. Shiraz is perhaps best known for its deep plum colour and peppery flavour, but it is also a versatile grape. Left to ripen more deeply, the peppery qualities develop into notes of stewed plums and dark cherry, after which it develops even further into flavours of port, chocolate and coffee when very ripe. The abundance of fruit sensations is often complemented by warm alcohol and gripping tannins. Toffee notes, if present, come not from the fruit but from the wine having rested in oak barrels. The versatility of Shiraz enables it to be paired with a wide variety of foods but it’s terrific with grilled meats. One of my favourites from our current wine list is the Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz 2012.


Do yourself a “favour and try something new this winter. | HALLSY, FOOD & BEVERAGE MANAGER

Cabernet Sauvignon

Merlot

In many parts of the world, Cabernet Sauvignon is considered one of the best varieties of all grapes and is excellent for cellaring. It is said to have first appeared in Australia at the beginning of the 1830s and today enjoys much success in many regions across the country, particularly in the Yarra Valley and Margaret River.

Considered easy to drink, the softness of Merlot has made it the perfect introductory wine for new red-wine drinkers. It is one of the most common grape varieties in terms of coverage worldwide and one of the rising stars of the Australian wine market.

Cabernet Sauvignon is typically full-bodied, but firm and gripping when young. It is more assertive than Merlot, with more tannin and greater aging potential. Cabernet Sauvignon displays distinctive characteristics at different stages of ripening. Unripe, it is herbaceous, with notes of capsicum and tea. Just before ripeness, it develops an earthy nose, with hints of truffle, pepper and mint. When ripe, it has a bouquet of blackberry, plum and cherry, and finally, when deeply ripened it can exhibit flavours of port, caraway, aniseed and coffee. Cabernet Sauvignon is often aged in oak which can make it take on flavours of vanilla, cedar, and chocolate. Yalumba’s ‘The Cigar’ Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coonawarra region in South Australia is one of the region’s best kept secrets. It goes beautifully with meat dishes like beef and lamb.

Merlot is a soft, supple wine with nice fruit flavours of plums and blackberries and occasionally mint, chocolate and eucalyptus flavours and aromas. Typically, it is ready to drink earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon, which sometimes needs a few years for its astringent tannins to mellow. Many winemakers blend Merlot with other grape varieties in order to create their own distinctive wines. The Oxford Landing Estates Merlot is a lovely and inexpensive Merlot to get you started on your red wine discovery. It will compliment most meals but for something a little different, try it with seafood. At Brothers we have over fifty different red wines available in our bottle shop for you to explore, including all these varieties and many more. Any that don’t appear on our current wine list can be purchased from the bottle shop to enjoy with your meal with the addition of a modest corkage fee.

IN THE KITCHEN WITH CHRISSIE

Winter

Warmers

A lot of people I know dread winter. And to be honest, there have been times when I’ve wished I could stay in bed and sleep through it too. Sadly, hibernation isn’t yet a feasible option for us so we just have to deal with it.

Fortunately, winter is also a great time for sharing a hearty meal with friends and family. Yes, it is colder outside, and it can be difficult taking that first step. But it’s well worth it. I feel old when I say this, but these days so much of how we live our lives is constantly changing with technology. For a Luddite like me it’s hard to keep up. But the sharing of food with good company remains one of the best experiences you can have. And a winter feast that you don’t have to prepare yourself is all the better!

the oven that feels so good in winter. Some foods actually do the job better than others. In general, smaller, denser, and more compacted foods are going to be popular at this time of year. A cozy winter meal can mean a lot of things. For mine, I love a hearty hot bowl of soup, a lovely stew or casserole with some crusty bread, the odd curry and big chunky home made pies. Roasts are always a great choice in the colder weather too.

You have probably noticed yourself wanting different foods now that winter is upon us. It’s not rocket science. In the winter time you need hearty recipes with a few extra calories to keep you warm.

Some of your common warming foods include most root vegetables (like carrots and potatoes) and most cruciferous vegetables (such as cauliflower and cabbage). Compared with leafy vegetables (like lettuce) that tend to grow much more quickly, these root vegetables and crucifers make excellent winter choices.

As the temperature starts to drop in the cooler months, there’s nothing more satisfying than warming up from the inside with some classic winter warmers. It’s not only the heat from

Of course, spicing things up with your hot peppers such as cayenne and other chilies (but even the more commonly used black pepper) makes good sense during the colder winter

months too because of their warming properties. Whole grains that include the nutrient dense bran and germ and seeds are another great example of a nutritiously compacted winter food, especially sunflower and sesame seeds, which are considered especially warming in some traditions. Dried beans and lentils that would be used in preparing of a hearty winter soup would also fit into this category of smaller, dense, and compacted foods. At the end of the day, a winter warmer can be whatever you want it to be. The main thing is it brings a smile to your face the moment it’s brought to your table and satisfies you to the very tips of your toes. Let’s face it. With a few extra layers of clothes to hide the evidence, there isn’t a better time to indulge in some of your favourite comfort foods. Go for it I say! I know I will be. Bon Appetit!

It is a remarkable achievement. Justin (guitar/lead vocals), Grant (bass/ vocals) and Andrew (drums/vocals) have been performing together without a line-up change since 1985. According to Justin, it wouldn’t have been possible if they weren’t best friends. “Bands are much more volatile than marriages” he explains. “You have to be able to tell another person that you don’t like what they are doing without starting a fight.” All three members had been in bands around Brisbane prior to forming Caught in the Act. Grant and Justin first met while jamming with other musicians. They found Andrew after placing an ad. According to Grant, they knew right away they were onto something. “It just fell in sync. It felt right” They started out as a functions band and their first gig together was a Christmas Party at Andrew’s work. The weddings, parties, anything background taught them how to be versatile and today they pride themselves on being able to cater to everyone from 18 to 80. These days they tend to play more in clubs like Brothers and their repertoire has evolved to include everything from Presley to Pearl Jam. “A Caught in the Act performance has two personalities. It starts of with Creedence Clearwater, Beatles and Van Morrison and then it changes to AC/DC, Queen, Black Keys and Bon Jovi” Justin says. “It’s about building atmosphere and we do that very well.”

people enjoying themselves” he says. “It’s all about keeping them on the dance floor.” Even though they already highly regarded, they are still on constant lookout for ways to improve. Maintaining the highest standards with sound production and lighting is very important to the band and they always have an ear out for anything new. “I get out a lot and when I see something that works well with a crowd, I bring that to our performance” says Justin. Caught in the Act first played at Brothers over ten years ago and it’s been one of their favourite venues ever since. Grant says they have a lot of regulars who follow them and some go back to the very beginning. Over the years, the band has performed all over South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Justin says there’s something about all the country gigs they’ve done that make them memorable. “They get a bit wild out there” The boys say some of the songs that get the biggest reaction at a Caught in the Act gig include Jesse’s Girl, Lonely Boy, Heartache Tonight, Highway to Hell and Eagle Rock. Justin is the first to admit some of these might seem stereotypical. “But it works”. Grant says the main thing is to respond to the audience and get the dancefloor pumping.

“It’s all the music we can’t play” he jokes.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s a big crowd or a small crowd. When we know everyone has had a great night, we’ve had a great night” he says. “We feed off the energy” .

One of the advantages of being together so long is the intuition they share and the ability to adjust to the mood of a room.

According to Justin, they know they’ve had a really good night when they morph from club to pub music and the crowd goes with them.

“All the songs are tried and tested” says Grant. “We make no apologies for sticking to the classics. When you have sixty years of rock and pop music to choose from you might as well pick the best.”

“And if at the end of the night they want an encore or two” he laughs.

In between sets Justin keeps the party going as resident DJ with the latest dance hits.

However, as Justin points out, the emphasis at a Caught in the Act gig is having a good time. “We like to entertain. We want to see

After thirty years, Caught in the Act are content to just keep doing what they’re doing. They all love playing to an audience. The challenge for them is to stay relevant. “We’re constantly evolving to new audiences” Justin says. “If we can keep doing that, we’ll keep working.”

GETTING TO KNOW

No Standing From the moment the pre-recorded intro begins you know you’re in for a huge night. No Standing don’t mess around. Their show starts off bursting with energy and it just builds from there as the night rolls on.

Craig (lead vocals/guitar), Allen (bass/ vocals), Keith (guitar/vocals) and Shaun (drums/percussion/vocals) have been a regular feature at Brothers since the band’s first gig here in September 2009. In just a handful years, they’ve racked up more than fifty appearances and built a loyal local following.

Craig describes Keith as a virtuoso guitar player and says the addition of the pint sized Welshman injected a new ferocity into the band. While Allen, along with his powerful, yet versatile bass playing is blessed with a melodic vocal ability that has added depth to their sound.

The boys say it’s the Brothers crowd that makes the venue one of their favourites to play.

This version of No Standing is now the longest running and has played more than 150 shows together.

“They’re some of the more fun, absolutely” says Craig “They love to interact.”

Their reputation throughout Brisbane as a hard-working, fun and high-energy band has been with them from the beginning. It’s what has led to securing support slots with Aussie rock legends Mental as Anything, The Radiators and Ross Wilson on recent tours.

Part of the reason is also the Sports Bar room itself. “There’s a connection because there’s no differentiation between the stage and the dance floor” explains Keith. “They’re right there!” Although, that hasn’t always necessarily been a good thing with a few over-enthusiastic fans occasionally getting a bit carried away.

Other highlights so far include playing a large festival in Strathpine and performing in front of more than 4,000 people at an IRL Grand Final.

“When we started, every night someone would fall over the foldback – guaranteed” laughs Craig. “But it hasn’t happened for a while.”

As well as being an energetic show from beginning to end, one of the factors that sets No Standing apart from a lot of other bands is their ability to pick songs from the last forty years that they know will work and then apply their own twist. They play all the classics like Summer of ’69 but are not afraid to crank it up with Metallica’s Enter Sandman which is now a standard inclusion on their set list.

No Standing formed in late 2007, playing their first gig in April 2008. Craig and Shaun are the only original members remaining with Keith joining in 2010 and Allen completing the current line up in 2012. While conceding the departure of a band member is always a distraction, Craig says you can find that new blood adds a new dimension to your performance. “We’ve been fortunate that this has occurred each time a member has left.”

22

“Cover bands don’t get those slots very often” observes Craig. “It was great.”

Craig says one of the songs guaranteed to get a big reaction is Sweet Child O’ Mine. “It’s the opening riff. As soon as they hear it they go crazy.”

“We play it well and the audience gets into it” agrees Keith. No Standing have already had many memorable gigs at Brothers where you can always rely on the crowd to get involved by the end of the night. The best ones are when the band is in sync with each other and the crowd is in sync as well. “What gets us off is the crowd” says Shaun. “The audience is feeding off it and we’re feeding of them” adds Keith. “You can feel the excitement levels rising.” “There’s just this moment in time” agrees Craig “It’s like putting on a Superman cape.” “It takes us an hour to drive home and we’ll be buzzing all the way.” No Standing are constantly pushing themselves and adding something new into the mix. Looking ahead they would love to secure a couple more big support slots and keep playing on bigger stages with bigger audiences. In the meantime, if you think you can keep up, you can still catch them regularly ripping it up at Brothers.

No Standing will next be performing on 13 June at the special time of 7.30pm for the BROTHERS Ipswich Cup After Party

IN FOCUS

Ipswich & District Athletics Club Ipswich Athletics is the newest member of the Brothers Kindred Clubs having officially come on board in 2013. However, its history in this city dates back to the seventies.

In the early eighties they moved to their present location at Bill Paterson Oval on the corner of Lion Street and Salisbury Road. From humble beginnings as a dump site below the cricket fields, the oval now boasts an all weather synthetic long jump runway to 2 pits, 3 shot put circles, 2 discus circles and a fine sprinkling system. A new clubhouse was built in 1995 and the equipment shed was erected in 2003. Club President, Vic Pascoe says the site is ideal. “It’s close to the city centre with the adjoining Limestone Park Cross Country venue recognised as one of the best in Australia.” The club caters to boys and girls from the ages of 10 years (as long as they become 10yrs by the 31st December of that year) all the way through to Masters with some of their members over sixty years of age. Vic says the club encourages all athletes to train and be the best they can and this philosophy is carried through to the coaching staff as well. “Our coaches are very experienced and regularly attend coaching clinics and seminars to keep up to date with the latest trends and advances in our sport” he says. “We have a happy and cheerful group of athletes who love the camaraderie as well as the competitions.” The club is also committed to the wider local community supporting

26

Relay for Life, the Ipswich Hospital Foundation Park2Park Run, the Great Public Schools Cross Country and the Associated Independent Colleges Cross Country events. To date, Ipswich Athletics have been able to punch well above their weight with the club being ranked in the top eight in Queensland ever since inception way back in 1978. Along the way there has been an impressive list of individual success stories including state and national champions, world record holders, Olympians and Para-Olympians. Some of the more recent achievements include having had three athletes; Larissa Chambers, Cassie Purdon and Filoi Aokuso compete for Australia in the 2014 World Junior Track and Field Championships in the USA. In 2011 Glen Yarham competed in the World University Cross Championships in Poland. In 2008 Tamara Carvoth competed at the World Junior championships in Scotland. Already this year, Miriam Peni competed at the Oceania Track and field Championships in Cairns and will compete at the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea in July. While Ipswich Athletics will do everything they can to encourage and assist athletes to achieve their potential, as Vic points out, you have to start somewhere and beginners are most welcome. “It is best to come along to a training

night and have a couple of trial nights before joining. This allows athletes to see what they want to do.” Training is at Bill Paterson Oval on Monday and Wednesday Nights from 7pm to 9pm. If you do decide to sign up, fees are only $2 per training night plus an annual fee of up to $230. “But this depends on the level you want to be involved” says Vic. “In other words there are cheaper options if you just want to be a member of the club.” You will need warm appropriate clothing, a towel, water bottle and a desire to be better than you are now, whether it is running, jumping or throwing. “Running spikes can come at a later date if you don’t have any.” The club regularly competes at the Queensland Sporting Athletic Centre at St. Lucia University, Gold Coast Athletics Centre at Griffith University and Queensland Sports Athletic Centre in Brisbane. Track and Field events are posted on the Queensland Athletics website for all competitions including cross country events. They also host a Winter Carnival which includes professional races such as the 120m Lightning Gift. The 34th Winter Carnival will be held at Bill Patterson Oval in August. For more information on how to get involved with the Ipswich & District Athletics Club, visit the website ipswichathletics.org.au or contact Vic Pascoe on 0409 754 884.

BROTHERS BULLETIN: WINTER EDITION THE SPEEDING TICKET

Thought you might appreciate this. Now you can drink without any guilt.

A female business executive was late for a meeting and was pulled over for speeding.

EXCELLENT ADVICE: A GLASS OF WINE

The cop asks “ma’am, can I please see your license?” She says “I’m sorry officer, but I got it revoked two years ago for drunk driving.” His brow furrows and he straightens up. “Well, can I please see the registration of your car?” She says “I stole the car and I killed the driver; he’s in the trunk.” “Ma’am DON’T MOVE. I’m calling for backup.” He mutters furiously into his walkie-talkie... Five minutes later, half the squad pulls up, the Chief of Police walks over to the woman’s window. “Ma’am, can I see your license?” he asks sternly. “Of course, officer,” she smiles demurely and pulls out a license from her purse. He squints warily at it. “This looks legitimate,” he mumbles. “Can I see the registration to this car?” She pulls it out of the glove compartment and hands it to him. “Ma’am, stand back!” He bangs open the trunk of the car and flinches: but it was completely empty. The woman brandishes a finger at the first cop and says accusingly, “And I’ll bet that liar told you I was speeding too!!”

“My memory is gone, so I changed my password to “incorrect.” That way when I log in with the wrong password, the computer will tell me…“Your password is incorrect.”

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine and those who don’t and are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand:

JOKES FOR FRANK WITH THANKS TO JACK THE LOVE DRESS A mother-in-law unexpectedly stops by the recently married couple’s house. She knocks on the door, then immediately walks in. She is shocked to see her daughter-in-law lying on the couch, totally naked. “What are you doing?” she asks. “I’m waiting for Jeff to come home from work,” the daughterin-law answers. “But you’re naked!” the motherin-law exclaims. “This is my love dress,” the daughter-in-law explains. “Love dress? But you’re naked!” “Jeff loves me to wear this dress! It makes him happy and it makes me happy.” On the way home the motherin-law thinks about the love dress. When she gets home she undresses, showers, puts on her best perfume and expectantly waits for her husband, lying provocatively on the couch. Finally her husband arrives. He walks in and sees her naked on the couch. “What are you doing?” “This is my love dress,” she replies. The husband looks her up and down.“Needs ironing. What’s for dinner?”

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, In beer there is freedom, In water there is bacteria. In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) - bacteria found in faeces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop annually. However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and fermenting. Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health. Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of poop. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I’m doing it as a public service.

HEAVEN JOKE

A man died and went to The Judgment, they told him , “Before you meet with God, I should tell you — we’ve looked over your life, and to be honest you really didn’t do anything particularly good or bad. We’re not really sure what to do with you. Can you tell us anything you did that can help us make a decision?” The newly arrived soul thought for a moment and replied, “Yeah, once I was driving along and came upon a person who was being harassed by a group of thugs. So I pulled over, got out a bat, and went up to the leader of the thugs. He was a big, muscular guy with a ring pierced through his lip. Well, I tore the ring out of his lip, and told him he and his gang had better stop bothering this guy or they would have to deal with me!” “Wow that’s impressive, “When did this happen?” “About three minutes ago,” came the reply.

CATS & DOGS A dog thinks: ‘Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm dry house, pat me and take good care of me… THEY MUST BE GODS!’ A cat thinks: ‘Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm dry house, pat me and take good care of me… I MUST BE A GOD!’

TOO OLD TO DATE! The neighbours thought it was odd, but 93 year old Morton was dating again. One Monday morning Morton woke up with a funny feeling that something important happened last night. It was during breakfast, that Morton finally remembered what it was. He had proposed to his date Greta. But what she answered he just couldn’t seem to remember. Morton picked up the phone and dialled. “Hi Greta”, said Morton, “I have a funny question for you, do you remember last night when I proposed?” “Oh my gosh” gushed Greta, “I’m so glad you called, I knew I said yes to somebody but I just couldn’t recall who it was!”
