Cr Dorey: British Empire Meda award delightful surprise LIVINGSTONE Shire deputy chairman Cr Brian Dorey described being awarded the British Empire Medal as a "delightful surprise", the "best kept secret in his life" ... and he admitted to feeling "overawed in some ways". Cr Dorey received his award in the New Year's Honours list approved by the Queen. The investiture will take place in April at Government House. Cr Dorey, at a Bicentennial event at The Caves on the weekend, told a crowd his award was "one for the Shire of Livingstone". He was given the award for his years of community service ... 25 years. And, according to Cr Dorey on Wednesday night "they're not over yet". While he was the recipient of the award, he wanted to share the credit ... "especially with my wife, Olive, who has worked with me so many long hours," and "the thousands of people I have been involved with over the past 25 years in community work". Paying tribute to Mrs Dorey, Cr Dorey said he referred to his wife as "the quiet achiever". He rattled off a string of organisations she had joined since marrying him ... "she saw what was going to happen so she joined these groups so that she could at least see me some time". Of the thousands of people who had been involved in community work with him, Cr Dorey said "one individual gets the award but that person can't win it alone". Asked whether he was going to slow down on his community involvement, Cr Dorey said "no way, I love it". However he did feel his involvement these days had to be less of the "nitty gritty". Too much of his time was tied up in bingo calling and he would like to take more of an over view. , "I've learned so much in the past 25 years that I would like to be in a position to pass it on. To give help rather than directly do the work.

I've learned to listen to other people and have found they have so much to offei." Cr Dorey loved the intrigue involved in being nominated, and accepted, for the British Empire Medal. "It was the best kept secret in my life. I know that 30 or 40 people must have been involved in writing letters on my behalf but I did not know about it," he said. The first he knew was in late October when a plain envelope was received at his home. Inside the envelope was another envelope and inside that was a letter from State Governor Sir Walter Campbell advising him that he had been recommended for the BEM. "It was quite a shock and a surprise," Cr Dorey said. He was asked was he prepared to accept the honour. He wrote a reply saying he would and the next communication was another letter either late in November or early in December stating that the Queen had approved his award. Then came December 31 when the honour was announced. Friends phoned and friends made "a big to-do over it". He called at one home and found a "red carpet" laid out at the front door for him. At a weekend barbecue, his friends jumped up and saluted. "It was all good fun and everyone I have met has taken the award the same way I feel about it. I'm very pleased." MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week "never had an award been more deserved than the BEM for Cr Brian Dorey". He said Cr Dorey's community work was known to everyone and his efforts as head of the Bicentennial Committee had given Livingstone Shire the edge on all other shires throughout Queensland activities for 1988. "His award will be popular because people throughout the shire are well aware of how much work he has done over so many years for so many groups," Mr Hinton said.

Police, shire chairman praise everyone for revels behaviour THOUSANDS chose to bring in the New Year on the Capricorn Coast ... and their good behaviour prompted praise from police and civic leaders. Officer-in-charge of Yeppoon Police Sgt 1/ c Ken Tanzer was "pleased as punch" with revellers and Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bosiren had similar praise. Cr Bowen was particularly pleasedwith rev., :tiers at the Pine Beach Hotel. "--1 There were no complaints about mess and none about bad behaviour. There was special praise for the almost complete lack of broken glass. In previous year, revellers have ignored warnings about the dangers of broken glass and have taken stubbies to the festivities. The result in past years has been a permanent line of revellers getting attention from the ambulance for cut feet. This year, as Midnight was counted down, there wasn't even an ambulance in the street. Emu Park police officer Senior Constable Barry Licence said the ambulance had left about 8pm and there had been no need for it to call back. Backed by additonal police, he said there had been no incidents and revellers had been well behaved. The Pine Beach revels had a new, more contained format. The park opposite the hotel was fenced with hessian screening which acted as both a wind-break and a limit to the sprawl. Many revellers gathered near the bandstand and danced in the New Year while others moved around a lot. One 18-year-old, enjoying the Pine Beach revels for the first time, remarked that he had met most of his former school mates and had thoroughly enjoyed the night. La Bamba Nightclub followed up last year's capacity crowd with another for 1989. The nightclub setting with streamers, balloons, flashing disco lights and twinkling dance floor created the perfect party mood and patrons enjoyed their revels. The crowd rocked in the New Year to live bands Kakadu and Le Rex. Club Hotel also enjoyed a festive New 1•/4FearThe with between 250 and 300 bringing in 1989. This was more than double the numbers at last year's Club Hotel revels. There were no problems and the crowd v7as well-behaved.

This was a sign of the times at New Year's revels. People out enjoying themselves did not seem inclined to ruin their night out with incidents. There was a happy crowd of mostly regulars at the Pacific Hotel enjoying entertainment provided by the Lindenberg Family from Toowoomba, local entertainer Alb)/ Lincoln and a guest appearance by Nanette Samuels. About 200, the same as last year, joined in the Pacific's festivities. It's a comfortable crowd for the hotel and patrons had enough room to dance in the New Year. Perhaps one Of the best indicators of New Year trends was increased trading at the Pacific Hotel's Liquor Barn. More trading' meant more people chose to drink at home. The buyers were also more selective. There was still a lot of carton-on-the-shoulder buyers but there were .many more choosing to put more "pop" into their New Year. The Railway Hotel had a bigger crowd than last year and revellers there were also well behaved. The most common desiption of New Year revels was "no problems". The Strand Hotel had an excellent Christmas and New Year trading was well above last year. New Year's Day was above expectations ... and a lot more "light" beer was sold. It was a further sign that people were well aware of the drink-driving campaign.

NO VACANCY SIGNS SHOWED STRENGTH OF BOOKINGS veyed this week had some interesting observations on the bigger picture ... the year-round accommodation situation. All three, Fay Simon of Como Units, Brian Hooper of Seaspray (and Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation chairman) and John Killeen of Island View Units at Kinka Beach, reported 100 per cent bookings over the past fortnight. All also commented how they could have filled twice as many units had they been available, then all made the same comment that the problem with having the additional unitswould be filling them in the off-season. But the problem with any discussion with accommodation owners is that comments are obviously confined to their business. Mrs Simon has eight units at Como and, year-round, has a 90 per cent occupancy rate. From June last year through to the end of 1988, Como's occupancy rate was up from 90 per cent to 96 per cent. Mr Killeen said Island View had an almost 100 per cent occupancy rate from April last year through to October. That was seven months of solid bookings "less a couple of cancellations at the last moment". Mr Hooper, however, said the past six months were "disastrous". He said he was speaking more for the accommodation industry in general than for Seaspray in particular. Mr Hooper, as CCTO chairman, is aware of a broader picture and holds to the view that Expo had definitely affected the Capricorn Coast tourist industry last year. "There were a lot of cancellations but for every cancellation over the Christmas period there were any number of people who wanted to fill the vacancy," he said. Mr Killeen also said there had been a lot of cancellations and agreed there had been plenty of people waiting to book in. But Mr Killeen was more interested in the growth last year than the solid bookings through Christmas. He expected to be filled t hough peak holiday seasons but said there had been an interesting trend in the past two years. In 1987, theyear before Expo, he said Island View had good winter bookings which died out around October. November was quiet and early December "died". He found that people did not bother to book ahead for holidays at Christmas that year. They spent the pre-Christmas period buying pres-

NO SURVEY was needed to discover how accommodation owers have been faring over the Christmas/New Year break ... anyone interested only had to look at the No Vacancy signs and the increased traffic in the shopping areas. But that's the sort of accommodation bookings expected this time of the year. Christmas and New Year arc marked on thousands of calendars as the time the family is going away. However three accommodation owners sur-

ents and, on Christmas Day, found they had money left over and decided to go away for a break. "They took off on Christmas Day and stayed where-ever they could find accommodation. Last year, the accommodation bookings were far better. The April to October period was solidly booked. "We, like a lot of other accommodation businesses on the Capricorn Coast, enjoyed a long winter," Mr Killeen said. School holidays were longer because they were offset from other States and it added up to a much longer winter than usual. The final two weeks of November were bad then the Christmas period took over with a lot of local (Rockhampton and Central Queensland) bookings.

But there were unprecedented cancellations that were filled as soon as they occurred He said Island View offered three types of accommodation: camping, caravans and cabins. Something he noticed in 1988 was a trend toward "upgraded" holidays with less accent on camping and more on caravans and cabins. There were "unprecedented cancellations and adjustments" (changing holidays from three weeks to two weeks) and some people even forfeited deposits, but there were others to take the vacancies. He believes the 1988 Christmaswas affected by people buying their presents then finding they could not afford a holiday. Home loan increases and uncertainty in mining areas also contributed but he noticed a lot of southerners staying in 1988 ... and they had "loose cash". Overall, he believes he benefitted from Expo as well as from the changes in school holidays and increased investment in the area. Mrs Simon, with a 96 per cent occupancy rate for six months, is obviously happy with the accommodation outlook. Como Units enjoys about 50 per cent repeat business, people who book in each year and enjoy their stay in Yeppoon. "We tend to have the more mature visitor who comes back year after year," she said. The other half of Como's visitors generally come from Sydney and Melbourne ... people who visit for the climate and the relaxed lifestyle. "They love the Coast the way it is," Mrs •

Simon said. "There have been complaints t1' year about the beach (Yeppoon) but they rt., ise that sand comes and goes and there are higher tides at Christmas." The bulk of Como's guests are Queenslanders ... followed by international visitors. Mrs Simon said a lot of Germans; Norwegians. Swedes and Swiss stayed at Como looking for the "real Australia". These are people who realise that one city is much - the same as another and that a real holiday means a change. "They love the islands," Mrs Simon said "They go to the Keppels day after day. They are also looking for things that are natural ... the birds, the animals, the trees." She believes there is a big future in promoting the "real Australia" overseas with a holiday that starts on the Capricorn Coast and ends at Alice Springs, following the Tropic of Capricorn. Her idea involves staying on the Coast and visiting the Keppel Islands and the Great Barrier Reef, then moving inland to see Rockhampton, a beef property in the Dawson/ Callide Valleys, Blackdown Tablelands, the Carnarvons, gem mining at Emerald, huge draglines on the coalfields, the Longreach Ha)! of Fame and heading further inland until Ayers . Rock. "There's so much to see in this region," she said. "I think the tours should be promoted as driving or bus tours to the Alice and then a flight back to the Coast. So much could be packed into a week," she said. Brian Hooper had the final word. He saw the Coast was definitely enjoying a peak Christmas but he found it difficult to compare with other years. "The problem is that Christmas is always a good season but this year we can see just how good it is because of the CCTO Information Centre at Ross Creek," he said. "We know by the huge number of inquiries just how many people are trying to book accommodation. "In years gone by we knew, as individuals, we were booked out but now we canget an overall picture from the Information Centre." The overall picture is one of enormous iterest in the Capricorn Coast. Mr Hooper said the Capricorn Coast had at least 3800 commercial beds available on any given night ... and the bulk of them were filled through Christmas. Obviously not all beds are filled because accommodation figures on bed available must include four beds in a two bedroom unit when only a couple may be occupying thewhole unit. But a booking is a booking ... and the Coast has been solidly booked! But there are vacancies in the immediate future. Mr Hooper knows of vacancies from January 10 and more from January 16. That's also normal. People book the peak periods and others don't necessarily want to commit themselves for the end of the January holidays. They work on the philosophy that they will find a vacancy during the peak period or the vacancy toward the end of the holidays will still be a available at the last moment. But while the present is looking good, Mr Hooper does not agree that the previous( months were the best. Speaking generally, he said the six months were disastrous. Being specific, he said the first two weeks of December were so bad Seaspray's occupancy rate had been only 20 per cent. "It was the lull before the storm of Christmas bookings .. but it was only 20 per cent," he said. "Expo drained a lot of pockets and there have been a lot of cancellations. The demand was there to fill the vacancies ... but a lot of people didn't take a holiday."

BYFIELD craftworkers Steve and Beth Bishopric, who run Nob Creek Pottery, have received an artist development grant. The grant is made through the Federallyfunded Australia Council and is administered by the visual arts/crafts board. Artist development grants are awarded under guidelines that require artists/ craftpeople to hay: "a proven record of exceptional professional activity and achievement spanning at least seven years". Only 90 grants a year are awarded Australiawide and applications come from painters, photographers, video artists, sculptors, woodworkers, glassworkers, weavers as well as potters. The grant to Steve and Beth Bishopric is to assist with the building of a large climbing kiln based on the Japanese traditional "Anagama" kiln, and for the production of a video record for release at the second national woodfires conference in NSW this year. The grant further recognises the Bishoprics' commitment and experience in the wood-fired pottery area. Steve Bishopric was chosen this year to lead the wood-fire seminar of the International Ceramics '88' conference held in Sydney as a Bicentennial event. International potters have become regular visitors to Nob Creek Pottery at Byfield, just._ North of Yeppoon, bringing expertise from potters in Europe, Japan, USA and New Zealand. The latest is John Takehara, professor of art at Idaho University, who will visit to do prelimary research for a documentaryvideo on Australian ceramic artists, for USA release. Mr Bishopric said "a lot of work went into submitting a professional application which proved regional artists can compete with the better known southern artists ... if their case is presented properly." He was please(' •lat after 15 years of "slog as a self-funded potter with never even a dole cheque," the Australia Council was able to

"A lot of people come through our Byfield pottery and attend our live-in schools and this kiln will prove an excellent example of a large traditional style kiln and enable us to further develop our wood-fired style," he said. "Regional galleries tend to ignore the door step, often purchasing suspect quality work from southern names. This could result in a collection of the worst examples of the best artists being collected. "Another recent grant was awarded to Coast artist Bill Yaxley, who is nationally recognised and represented in most national collections but has been ignored by local galleries." The Bishoprics now have an exhibition of pottery on display at their Byfield gallery/ workshop.

Bottle with message at Zilzie... RICKY THWAITE started 1989 with one of the most exciting finds anyone can make on a beach ... a bottle with a message in it. Ai,out 10am on New Year's Day, while walking along the beach near Coconut Point at Zilzie, he saw the bottle on the edge of the surf. There were hardly any barnacles on it and the top was sealed with a five-cent piece with some "tacky stuff"' wrapped around the neck. Inside was the following message: "M/V Pilbara, 6th August, 1988. To the Finder: This bottled message was thrown overboard from the M/V Pilbara off Fremantle, 150 miles due east of Cairns, Queensland, Australia, during our voyage from Lae (New Guinea) to Burnie (Tasmania). Would the finder please be kind enough to write to my 14-year-old son, Dayle, with details of when and where found. I'm an Able Seaman and the vessel on which I'm presently engaged on a general purpose cargo and container ship which sails from Fremantle to Adelaide, Melbourne, Burnie, Sydney, Brisbane, Port Moresby, Lae, Kieta, Rabaul and back to Fremantle via the east and south coasts. The address to write to is: Mr Dayle

Dickson, 239 Manning Road, South Bentley 6102, Perth, Western Australia. We look forward to your reply. Rod Dickson AB". The bottle was found close to where Nestor Svendsen found a dug-out canoe some years ago which had washed up on the beach. Ricky Thwaite said he would be writing to AB Rod Dickson's son arid was looking forward to a reply.

ETTERS TO THE EDITOR Wake up Australia! IF YOU are lucky enough to own a block of land which overlooks the sea you will have had the misfortune to look out of your window one day to be confronted with a most offending sight ... a caravan or tent right in your line of view. If you are like most folk you will have ignored the sight and waited for it to go away. If, however, you are an active member of the community, or better still a councillor, you will have agitated for a "No Camping" sign to be erected. You would not have needed to fight very hard to gain the sign either; all councils are aware of the fact that if they can bring all people under their control then more revenue will be generated and so the sign will be placed. The campers will, in future, have no choice other than to go to a recognised caravancamping park, often run by the council. If, subsequently, prospective campers question the council as to the reason for the sign, they will be told they are dirty people who foul up an area. Your identity will be protected. It may come as some surprise that campers are normal people who do not like to live among garbage and faeces any more than you do. A further surprise will be in store if you observe people camped away from recognised parks, (if you can find any!) and note that they actually clean up the areas they camp in. As I said, they are normal people! Further observance may reveal someone's offspring indulging in a beach booze-up, leaving in their wake cartons of smashed stubby bottles and other unmentionable items. Or, on another beach-camping area, there may be someone else's offspring harassing the people on holiday there, as happened to me at Karumba. The erection of 'No Camping' signs is well and truly rooted in selfishness and avarice so let the truth be known instead of invented reasons for their existence. The message to the business community is also an important one. When you allow councils to force people into parks there are two results which affect you directly. Some people will be forced to go elsewhere, for example, pensioners and poorer people who simply cannot afford to travel and pay to stay as well, and you lose that potential custom. No matter where people are they still have to live! The camping-caravan park gets the bulk of the

campers' money leaving you with the crumbs. Finally, as demonstrated clearly by the Yeppoon (sic) council, councils lack the expertise to manage ca:avan-camping parks efficiently and will ev:mtually attempt to unload these unprofitable ventures onto some unsuspecting sucker who will be expected to not only run the show but also to pay council an exhorbitant sum in leasehold. The result to business, and the community in general, will be unfavourable to say the least! Get rid of the signs and return freedom to the people. Some of our fathers fought for the freedom of this country only to see councils remove those very freedoms, Give people a pleasant place to come and stay. The rewards to the community in general will far outweigh any inconvenience to selfish land-holders who overlook the beaches and want to protect their view, even to the extent of wanting to control activities of people on land not owned by the viewer! Wake up Australia! Already there are few places where you can go for a trip or holiday without someone wanting to extort you for the privilege. And whatever happened to that coastal strip of land all around Australia that, at the time of Federation, was to have been reserved for public use? - F Harmer, Limestone Creek Road, Yeppoon.

Have a look at CCTO centre AT last Yeppoon has its own focal point for the development and encouragement of the tourist industry. The Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation's Information Centre is not only a clean, new, bright, attractive place to visit, it is also very well situated: ask the visitors where they are staying and many will say "we've just driven into Yeppoon". Working there as a volunteer is both interesting and exciting. You get to meet people from all over the world and you are learning so much more about the area as you help them. Working there as a volunteer is also a great opportunity for young people like school leavers to gain valuable "hands-on" experience in public relati.:.:.s - the social skills needed to work with the public. The inquiries are numerous and varied. Most are about accommodation. It would be very helpful if all the accommodation proprietors who have vacanies could ring these through every morning, giving number, size and cost. Don't be shy! It is really good to be able to refer visitors to a vacancy and give them a map to show them the way. Other inquiries range from horse riding to hiring scuba-diving gear to a day's fishing trip. The inquiries show up clearly the extent and variety of the service that the Coast does provide - but also highlights the need for small entrepreneurs to cater for specific needs. On display in the centre are large posters of the coast's attractions and also accommodation venues - a 38cm (15") square free space is available to any local business. Also on display arc the "freebies" - bright, colourful promotional pamphlets advertising everything from the Capricorn Iwasaki to the Shell Museum and Paint Pot Gallery. Have you got your material there? If you haven't yet visited the Capricorn Coast's very own Tourist Information Centre, come down soon. You are sure to receive a warm and friendly welcome from one of the Coast's 45 volunteers. - Glynis. Cumming, "Sweetwatcrs", Adelaide Park Road, Yeppoon.

Handicap series z-starts at squash for aid to fitness

Mixed bowls on at Emu Park MIXED Social bowling has resumed at Emu Park Bowls Club every Sunday. Tuesday. Wednesday and Saturday starting at .30?m. (Names in before Ipn-, please). There's a practice roll-up every Friday. The men's club will be organising all games until January 18, when the ladies club will take over the Wednesday games. Ladies are reminded that nominations for competitions close on January 27. A cordial invitation is extended to visitors on the Coast. The gentle sea breeze, the cold drinks, and the tropical setting provide a relaxing environment for holiday enjoyment. Lawn bowls continues to grow in popularity and is one of the largest participator sports in the world. Age is no barrier because the game is suitablelor anyone over the,age of 14. After the initial cost of the necessary gear-it is an inexpensive pastime. At Emu Park bowls Club, green fees are $2.50 for a game of about three hours, and includes afternoon tea. Members are reminded that membership fees for 1989 arc now due: men's full fee S30; pensioners S20 and ladies 512.50. Social evenings continue every Friday, with. barbecue teas served from 6pm and good music by Ron Gibson throughout the night.

CAPRICORN Coast Squash Club members resumed play on Wednesday night after a • short Christmas break. Club members and intending competition players are playing a handicap series during the regular team fixture break to maintain some semblance of fitness. The handicap competition known as the In Betweens Competition, matches players of varying standards through a computer-generated handicap. The handicap varies with a player's performance as• the competition progresses. The handicaps usually provide very close competition and this week was no exception with Ellen Farr narrowly defeating new member Maria Moroney one game each 29 points to 28. Games in this competition are played to 15 points. Maria's husband, Greg, had a little more success when he played Shane Miners. Greg won one game each 26 points to 24.

35 baptised in portable pool MINISTERS of Jehovah's Witnesses stood waist-deep in a portable pool to perform the baptism of 35 people during a ceremony at the Rockhampton Showgr , ound on the weekend. Among those baptised were five from the Yeppoon congregation, who have been studying the Bible for more than the qualifying period of at least six months. The baptismal candidates were aged between 11 and 79 years, and the 70 year old was in the group from Yeppoon. The ceremony took place during a series of "Divine Justice" District Conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses, held simultaneously throughout Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea during four days last week. More than 2000 delegates at Rockhampton considered the programme had encouraged family togetherness and strengthened faith in the eventual hope of justice for all righteously inclined people.

Let centre know of vacancies THE CCTO Information Centre has proved its need over the Christmas period by providing information to a lot of people ... but supplying the demand has used a lot of brochures. CCTO chairman Brian Hooper this week appealed to Capricorn Coast accommodation houses, attractions and businesses to check that the Information Centre still had a supply of their brochures. "We have gone through a lot of brochures tend some businesses may no longer be represented," Mr Hooper said. "If any business has already supplied the centre with a brochure it would be wise to drop in and check that we still have supplies. "We have gone through so many there must be some that we've run out of." He also ap...:aled to accommodation houses to list any vacancies that may occur by phoning the centre. "Phone us on 39 4888. If you have a vacancy, the visitors calling on us want to know about it," he said '


Annual barbecue at Yeppoon club ABOVE: Emu Park Rugby League Club held its sign-on at the Pine Beach Hotel. Secretary Jeff Quigley is pictured signing up Kent Svendsen. •

Emu Park rugby league players already training for first season TWENTY-SIX players signed for the 1989 Emu Park Rugby League reserve grade team to compete in the Rockhampton division. The players have been training unofficially during the Christmas-New Year break. "The runs were well attended even though it was holiday time," Emu Park Rugby League Club publicity officer Jeff Quigley said tis week. "Official training started on January 3. The players will train every Tuesday and Thursday at 5.30pm starting from Kerr Park opposite the Pine Beach Hotel. "We are still on the look-out for more interested players and anyone is welcome to come along on training runs," he said. "In fact, if anyone wants to get fit they are welcome to have a run with us or just come for the fun of it." The club has arranged for a bus to take . players and spectators to games. "We aren't having any paid players. We want everyone to play for the love of the game and town spirit," Mr Quigley said.

The side will have its first game, in the preliminary for the Yeppoon Bronco game, against a Townsville University representative side. "Our team will be an invitation Emu Park side." The inaugural general meeting in December was well attended and a full committee elected. President is Eddie Mallard; vice president Danny Duffy; secretary and publicity officer Jeff Quigley and treasurer Barry Wetzler. Committee members are Steve Sleeman, George Aboud, Steve Anderson, Bill Lin nett e, Ken Barrett, Bindi Yow Yeh, Charlie Strathford and Danny Thorton. Coach is Steve Anderson; assistant coach Jeff Quigley; trainer Ken Barrett; manager Steve Sleeman and ball-boy is Gavin Duffy. The club has three major sponsors ... the Pine Beach Hotel, Emu Park Esso and Emu Park Bakery. Open committee meetings will be monthly at the Pine Beach Hotel.


FOLLOWING an afternoon of mixed bowls on New Year's eve, the Yeppoon bowls club staged their annual barbecue and social. About 150 members, friends and children attended the festivities and club president Norm Myler said this week he was extremely pleased with both the attendance and the family atmosphere of the whole evening. "Gatherings such as this help to create and improve relationships within the club and the outlook for 1989 is indeed bright,- he said. Music for the evening was supplied-by Ray and Joan Clark of Rockhampton, ably assisted by Graham McCosker on drums. Compere Reg. Gibbons kept the entertainment moving with dancing and there were also items by • members of the audience. A large number of those present stayed on to bid farewell to the bicentennial year and herald in 1989. The departure from the normal play on bowling days to that of ladies and men's and mixed bowls has proved a huge success over the Christmas and New Year period. Attendances on all days was high and some good games were played. Members are reminded that nominations for all grades of competitions are now being taken. As from the week starting January 9, play will revert to normal and is as follows: Tuesdays, ladies bowls; Wednesdays, men's social; •Friday, floodlight mixed bowls, starting at 6.30pm; Saturday, men's bowls; Sundays, mixed bowls.All daytime bowls start at 1.15pm.

FUN AFTERNOON TO START NEW YEAR'S BOWLS FOR WOMEN YEPPOON ladies will start their 1989 year of bowls with a "fun" afternoon, starting at 1.15pm. Visitors and members alike are all welcome to come along and enjoy a great time. Leave the worries at home and welcome the New Year on the green, with laughter, goodwill and maybe even good bowling. There will be small gifts, prizes and surprises plus a mystery or two of a different kind

than the normal. Make it a date to help make it an afternoon to remember. Gifts supplied by Ivy McNamara. (This could be termed friendly blackmail because Ivy is also publicity officer. "If you do not turn up, you just may be finding yourself in the news before too long," she said. "Funny little incidents have been noticed on the green at times, that have not escaped my notice. OK, so I'm only fooling."

Ladies, competitions will start shortly, so take the opportunity to roll up and get some practice now. Also members, please do not forget to join the parent club each Friday night when they turn the lights on for mixed bowls. Those lights use a lot of power, so come on ladies help fill the green, and play in the cool of the evening. Starting at 6.30pm.

Along the way they run through jumping, dressage, managing their horse, keeping a stable clean ... and anything else that crops up in questions. The riders bring their own ponies which are stabled at the showground and the riders bunk down in showground buildings. Three meals a day arc prepared by committee member's, parents and willing helpers. The 50 riders expected to attend will represent clubs from Yeppoon,` Parkhurst, Fitzroy River, Balmoral, Compton Park, Bajool, Mt Larcom, Mt Morgan, Alton Downs, The Caves, Marlborough and Clarke Creek (a new club near Marlborough). Riders are also expected from Blackwater and Emerald, which arc clubs from another zone. The annual camp is not confined to pony club members.

Higgins favourite for Corsair title

NEW YEAR'S Eve was quiet. There were outbreaks of noise but there didn't seem tobe the sustained partying that has marked other years. There were a few groups of Coast people sitting on the verandah under the 60 watt light bulm watching theworld go bybut not a lot of backyard parties. Ah well, maybe the sustained, belly-grabbing excitement of the Bicentennial was just too much for most and they retired early to bed after an exhausting year! • • • MAYBE, just maybe, the annual police threat of a blitz on drink-drivers kept the New Year celebrations quieter. There weren't too many cars on the Scenic Highway and those that were there, thankfully, weren't weaving. Apparently bottled liquor sales were up so maybe the police did get through with their message. Of course, the police aren't party-poopers ... if you did meet the police over the New Year I'll bet the first thing they did was offer you a balloon to blow up. That's pretty friendly and right neighbourly of them!!! • • • A FEW weeks ago, "Old Baldy" was conned into attending the Pacific Hotel Social Golf Club's Christmas 18 holes. He was one of about 40 who strode off the first and staggered back to the 19th after an exhausting round. He debated turning up on New Year's Day but commonsense overtook him and he turned over and went back to sleep. Apparently he wasn't the only one ... only seven showed up for a game. Someone must have been partying the night before! • • • BY the way, have you noticed something about modern bands? They don't seem to be able to play the National Anthem, Happy Birthday or Auld Lang Syne. Matter of fact, the band at the Pine Beach do seemed to play right through the start of the New Year, according a few avid clockwatchers in the crowd. When the band finished its number, the lead singer said it was two minutes to midnight and was met with a shout of "it's already midnight". Showing great calm, the singer then asked if anyone had the right time. After another shout from the crowd, the singer announced it was "20 seconds to midnight" ... and started a count-down from 10 seconds. Anyway, the great moment arrived, '88 turned into '89, there were a few hugs, kissed and shouts ... and dancing started again. Maybe the wrinklies had the right idea when they linked arms and sang Old Lang Syne ... after all, with modern dancing the way it is, at least the modern fellas would get to hold their girl at least once a year! SUZY'S column is missing from this issue for the first time in more than five years. She has been laid low by the 'flu which has turned to bronchitis and whatever else is around at the moment. She is resting in hospital (most reluctantly) and assures everyone she will be back on deck for next week's issue. If there are any mistakes in this issue blame "Old Baldy". If there are any bouquets tube thrown, throw them to Sandra Mackie ... she deserves \fvery one of them. Thanks Sandra!

ON Friday only five boats started the Invitation race, in 20-25 knot winds and choppy seas. There were three capsizes. First, Little Grettle (Q); Second, Toccate (Q); Third, Regal Begal (V). On Saturdaywinds of 25-30 knots and heavy seas caused a race postponent to Monday morning. Progressive placegetter to date after four heats are: First, The Doghouse (Q) D Higgins; Second Little Grettle (Q) K Glen; Third, Slick Chick (V) J McCutchan. Last year winner, Geoff Beauchamp, presently in fourth place overall. In the Naval Cadets "Deaying Rabbit", from T.S. Bundaberg, (Graham Black) is first; "Runaway Shopping Trolley", also from T.S. Bundaberg (Jason Ralson) is second; "T.S. Vandetta", from Caff's Harbour, N.S.W. (David Baird) is third. There are three more heats, the last being on Sunday morning. David Higgins must be regarded as a firm favourite to regain his title at this time. •••rrum ..._
