HISTORICAL FUTURE FOR GENERATIONS Thanks to good management and hard work over the years, the Canowindra Historical Society is in a sound financial position. It also has a loyal membership of around 100 people and enjoys support from many local business and the Cabonne Council, but the Society needs your help. We need volunteers. We need people who will donate a couple of hours of their time every now and then to open the museum, do a bit of cleaning, a bit of maintenance, a bit of administrative work. We need people who are interested in helping to build on the work that’s been done over the last forty five years to ensure that the community’s history is kept safe and relevant for future generations. Without that new input the continued operation of the Society and Museum may be compromised. This is your history Canowindra. What can you do? Whatever your skills are, they will be put to good use. Commencing in a few weeks, a series of open days will be held at the Museum to re-introduce the community to the keepingplace of its history. These days will also incorporate training sessions for new and potential guides and will be advertised in The Phoenix. In the meantime you are welcome to contact Anne Vincent for further information, via email, phoning 02 6344 1817, or call in at Millinery Matters 90 Gaskill Street Canowindra.

CALL TO ARTISTS: STAND TALL AND DELIVER! Maybe you are an artist, or chances are that you will know someone who would like to have a go at share their creative talents. Later this year, the River Bank Gallery is holding two people's choice exhibitions that are open to anyone who wants to participate: 'TALLS 2013'; and 'Stand and Deliver - The Life and Times of Ben Hall'. Both of these exhibitions open Saturday 7 September. The 'TALLS 2013' exhibition is one of the Gallery's most popular annual exhibitions that most of you will be familiar with. It has been successfully running for 8 years and attracts more artists each year. The theme is open and the idea is that each artist parts on the same sized canvas 12'' x 24'' with the canvas oriented in portrait, or 'tall' fashion. The results are diverse and artists have always come up with wonderful paintings within these constraints. Entry forms for the 'TALLS 2013' exhibition can be found on River Bank Gallery's website or calling Catherine or David on 02 6344 2778. The 'Stand and Deliver - The Life and Times of Ben Hall' exhibition is part of the Bushranger Jubilee celebrations being held the weekend 11-13 October 2013. The canvases for this exhibition will be 16" x 20" and the prize money for the work with the most votes is $500!!! To join in, all you have to do is complete an entry form; come in, phone or email us to buy a canvas; create your artwork; and then deliver your entry form and artwork to the Gallery by the due date, which is Monday 2 September 2013. Good painting and good luck. The artist with the most votes at the end of the exhibition will be the winner. KNIGHT FOR THE DAY?

CANOWINDRA RUGBY The Canowindra Pythons played host to the Molong Magpies on Saturday, with the predicted wet weather arriving. The game started at a fast pace, however it was the Pythons to have the upper hand for the majority of the first half. Scrums have been a dominate structure this year, with boys like Jordan Irvine, Stuey Gavin and Deano leading from the front, and Maxie O'Ryan and Tom English providing the strength in second row. With the Pythons attacking in the Magpies quarter for a few plays a penalty was soon awarded to the Pythons and Alex Grant's golden boot slotted 3 points over for the boys. Soon the boys found themselves back in the Magpies 10m zone. With Adam Nash finding himself millimetres from the try line, Half Todd Wyburn threw the ball out wide for Alex Grant to launch himself at the line and cross for a well deserved try which he converted. With the half time whistle about to sound Molong spread the ball wide and scored a converted try to leave the score at 10-7 in favour of the men in blue. The second half turned into a real slog fest in the soaking conditions with both teams making a few breaks but handling errors cost any tries. Alex Grant slotted another penalty goal for the Pythons with 15 left on the clock. However the Magpies back line swooped onto a loose ball and scored a try out wide to bring the score to 13-12 still in favour of the Pythons. The next 5 minutes of the game was a very tense affair with both teams picking up the pace a little, though the Canowindra Pythons held on for a great win against the Molong outfit. Points for the day went to Dan Bowd 3 for a great "captains knock"; Alex Grant picked up another 2 points for a great game; and Jordan Irvine and Iain Talbolt got a point each. Players' Player went to Bowser also. This weekend is the long weekend bye and the week after the Pythons travel to Grenfell to take on the Panthers. Also the Grenfell Golden Oldies will be in action before the main game, and they have asked if there are any interested players to come over for a run.
