NEWSLETTER JULY 2009 ISSUE Deadlines for next issue: Advertising - 8 JULY 2009 News item submissions - 15 JULY 2009 ASSOCIATION NEWS Our meeting on 17 June was attended by 39 members and 4 visitors, including Cr Gerard O’Connell from Fraser Coast Regional Council. Apologies were received from 7 members.

New Association Secretary, Christine Rogers, was welcomed into her role, and took the minutes of the meeting. We are still waiting for someone to step forward and take on the role of President. It’s essential to the Association that this position be filled as soon as possible. Please consider if you can assist here. The Burrum Heads Blue Water Boat Club is holding a charity/fun bowls day at Burrum Heads Bowls Club on Sunday 12 July to raise funds towards the shelter shed at the new tennis courts. Many thanks to both the Boat Club and the Bowls Club for organising this event. I urge everyone to come along, enjoy the fun, and support the cause. It’s very pleasing to see this sort of co-operation within our community. You can find more information later in this newsletter. Tennis Courts: The opening of the new courts on 31 May was a very successful day – many thanks to all helpers – organisers, cooks, and Darren from the Veggie Patch who donated the onions. We now await the connection of power to enable the courts to be used at night. Late June/early July is the prediction. Shelter shed should be on site within about three weeks.

News submissions to The Secretary PO Box 43 Burrum Heads Qld 4659 (email: <bhpa4659@gmail.com>) Illegal Campers: Barry Alexander will meet with Andrew Gaze (FCRC) next week to discuss this matter. Lighting at intersections: Response from MRD was not encouraging – apparently we haven’t had enough accidents!! A traffic counter is currently in place at Orchid Drive. Boat Ramp: Zorro advised that he met with FCRC last week and hopes for some news within a week or so. Burrum Heads ‘Needs’: Barry Alexander and Ron Gregson have spent considerable time preparing a draft letter to FCRC listing a number of issues that members feel are our ‘needs’ rather than our ‘wants.’ When the letter is fine-tuned it will be delivered to Council with the request that Association representatives engage in a series of meetings with relevant Council departmental heads. Cr O’Connell supported the Associations action, believing that it will ‘set the scene’ for on-going collaboration. He commented on the strong community spirit evidenced by the attendance at our meeting.

Hall Cleaning: Only two tender applications were received. If we accept either we will need to increase hall rental substantially in order to cover our costs. We will investigate the possibility of having a group of volunteers who will clean, in teams of 3 or 4, for one hour each fortnight. If you are concerned about keeping our hall available to all local groups, and you Newsletters: We have received very favourable can spare an hour once a fortnight, please contact comments regarding the delivery of newsletters to Lesley (4129 5410). Let’s support our community in Sirenia Beach, Raintree and Burrum Park. Thank you the old fashioned way! to all helpers, especially our junior citizens. Two volunteers have now been trained to assist with the Next Meeting of the Association will be held on printing of the newsletter. We are hopeful that Wednesday 15 July 2009 another four will be trained this month. commencing at 7.00pm sharp The Association is also investigating the possibility of making the newsletters available ‘on line’, and establishing a web-page.

TENNIS COURTS In conjunction with the Burrum Heads Social Club’s “Family Fun and Sports Day,” Sunday 31 May saw the opening of our new tennis courts. The courts were available, free of charge, to anyone keen to have a hit. It was a very successful day, with many turning up to enjoy the occasion. Tristan Brown, of Fraser Coast Pro Tennis (Hervey Bay), assisted greatly in launching our courts. He brought along a couple of additional coaches and a few of the very talented juniors who are part of his training squad. Tristan and his helpers conducted a free coaching clinic for our local children, and I am sure that everyone was impressed at how quickly he was able to have these totally inexperienced youngsters hitting balls, and thoroughly enjoying themselves. We were also entertained by a demonstration match between a couple of the young squad members most impressive! Many thanks to Tristan, and all of his group, for their contribution to the success of our day. We now look forward to producing our own home-grown champions in the future! The construction of these courts has been made possible by a grant from the Queensland Department of Sport and Recreation (covering 67% of the total cost of the project), a donation of $15,000 from the Fraser Coast Regional Council, and the balance of the cost being carried by the Burrum Heads Progress Association - a result of various donations and fund-raising activities over a number of years.

Thank you, all, for your contribution towards providing this facility for our town.

BURRUM HEADS RURAL FIRE BRIGADE Throughout Queensland, there are 44,000 volunteer Rural Fire Fighters (give or take a few). We cover the entire state and keeping our outback members trained and well informed has until now been through a monthly newsletter, which was an excellent publication, but limited in size and content. Given the vast expanses to the west and beyond, the D E S Media and Corporate Communications unit has developed an interactive communication package which contains far more information than it's predecessor. Our remote area volunteers can now access all this site has to offer

through the www. From a training perspective, it will mean that for the basic entry level training packages, our remote and isolated recruits will not have to travel great distances to gain the required skills and basic underpinning knowledge. Our local Fire Warden, Eric Rosenberger has returned from his travels and may be contacted on 4129 5928 for the issuing of permits to light fire. Stay Safe. Ken Fardon, (Brigade Training Officer)

BURRUM HEADS OUTRIGGER CANOE CLUB With the cold mornings and the occasional frost upon us we are still paddling (although some are taking the option of a later start). It really is quite pleasant once out on the water with the morning sun on us and some brisk exercise. However, capsize drills are definitely out. A canoe maintenance day was held with a good roll up of senior and junior members making light work of cleaning and polishing the six man and two man canoes. Good to see the juniors being introduced to the necessary behind the scenes work of maintaining our equipment in seaworthy order. We are currently running a raffle. The prize is a family voucher for a whale watching trip on the Tasman Venture any time this whale watching season. To be drawn at the Burrum Heads market at 11am on 11th July. We thank all volunteer ticket sellers, the Burrum Heads community and the Progress Association for supporting us in this venture. Monies raised will go towards uniforms, life jackets for the OC1/OC2 canoes, and regatta nominations for the Juniors.

Junior Outriggers:- ( Now paddling Saturdays 8.30am and Sundays 9.30 am) We now have 18 juniors registered with the club, and we welcome all new juniors and their families to outrigging. The juniors have also been busy fund raising with a chocolate drive raising nearly $1000. Thanks to all juniors and their families and friends for this great effort. Proceeds will go towards junior club uniforms. Whilst we are training the juniors to give them the opportunity to paddle competitively at regattas, the emphasis will always be on having fun. Forthcoming Junior events:Sunday 19th July...9.30am Paddle /Fishing/Picnic day Saturday/Sunday 25/26th July..Regatta..Lake Awonga..Gladstone. This is a Juniors only Fun Regatta. Accommodation will be at Tannum Sands in a school camp site, giving our juniors a great opportunity to meet other junior paddlers socially and test their skills out on the water. Peter M

F R O G P R O J E C T AT C H E E L I I L A G O O N Healthy Habitats made an offer to good to resist – to sponsor an Open Day at Cheelii Lagoon in Burrum Heads. Friends of Cheelii Lagoon have been working to improve the natural values of the park for about 18 months. Founding member, Colleen Weier was the emcee for the day. Free billy tea and hot damper were ready for early arrivals. Thanks to Betty, Gay and Debbie for all their hard work. Also the Country Moon Bootscooters came out and gave a display of their skills. The highlight was

lessons given by Annie to the ladies. On the serious side, Dave Darmody talked about his job and about what happens to stormwater. Rain washes any pollutants from our gardens and streets straight into waterbodies like Cheelii Lagoon – and from there into the sea. Sara Ashdown introduced the audience to permaculture and organic gardening. Roger Currie spoke about the connectivity of the various water bodies – wetlands, creeks, and rivers. It was a breezy cool day – with maybe one drop of rain falling towards the end. To conclude, 3 prize vouchers from Denise’s Snip and Klipz, the Burrum Heads Butcher and the By the Sea Store were drawn. The Friends of Cheelii were very pleased at the turn out of people from the local community and recruited 2 more helpers. Carol Bussey

BURRUM HEADS AMATEUR FISHING CLUB NEWS It's been a busy month for the Club since the last edition hit the press with our last club competition for the fishing year to contest as well as the Annual Interclub competition, this year held at Tin Can Bay. Our Presentation Night was held at the Burrum Heads Hotel on 13 June. The club competition of 15-17 May was the last for our fishing year. The Ladies best bag was won by Annette Akers, while Paul Di'Cesare took out the Mens best bag. Secret weight: Bream - Zorro Tarnawsky, Pike - John Keam. Leanne Coleman won the lucky draw and Graham Stretton the lucky virgin prize. The 3 monthly draws were won by Peter Taylor and Colleen Tarnawsky. We managed to sneak a little further up the ladder at the Interclub, coming 4th this year. Toogoom showed us all up yet again to take home the trophy for the 5th year running. A group of our members stayed at Point Carlo for the week to fish and a great time was had by all, but the fish were really scarce - too much fresh in the water we were told, it was a nice chocolate colour! The fishers who stayed in Burrum and came down for the weigh-in on the Monday saved our pride somewhat. Peter Akers took off the prize for the biggest snapper, while Leanne Coleman managed both the biggest bream and the biggest tailor. Congratulations to Peter and Leanne. Thank you to Tin Can Bay Club who hosted for the first time and put on a delicious barbeque lunch, (the desserts were divine). Our Presentation night went off well with 50 members and 20 visitors from other clubs attending. It was a busy night with a delicious meal, presentations, both serious

and fun, and lots of lucky door prizes (thank you to Hervey Bay Wholesale Nurseries for their kind donation of two huge potted arrangements to include with our prizes). Champion anglers on the night were: Junior Nick Bond Champion Lady Colleen Tarnawsky Runner-up Leanne Coleman Champion Man Paul Di'Cesare Runner-up Zorro Tarnawsky Overall Club Champion was Paul Di'Cesare With the warmer weather beckoning (and needing a big rest after the Classic effort) our President Max Smith and wife Gloria headed north for the winter. So that club business could continue in his absence (which will go beyond the upcoming AGM), Max has resigned the position to allow our former Vice President Ken to step in and keep the Club running smoothly. Thank you Max for a fantastic effort over the years. Welcome to new members Carol & Vern and Trevor who have recently joined our ranks. If you have been thinking about joining but haven't got around to it now is a good time, as the competitions for the new fishing year commence on 21 June. We would love to see some more juniors in our club so how about all those Mums and Dads out there joining up with the kids. Membership is $20 for adults, $7.50 for Juniors, or $40 per family. If you are interested in finding out more about us you are welcome to come along to our weigh-in at the Lions Park at 4:30pm every third Sunday. The next one will be held on the 21 June. Inquiries about the club please contact Secretary: Alexandra Wolfendale - 41934115 or President : Ken Frainey - 41287809, or by email to burrumafc@gmail.com.
