Oh really, it’s O’Reilly

Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON has a new mayor in town after Cr Michael O’Reilly was voted into the position by councillors at an 8 November statutory meeting. Cr O’Reilly replaced outgoing mayor Cr Colin Hampton in the top job. Cr Hampton was voted in as deputy mayor at the same meeting. Cr O’Reilly is currently completing his second term as a North-East Ward councillor, having won elections in 2012 and 2016. This will be his first stint as mayor. “My recent role as Deputy Mayor allowed me more time to get out into the community, which I really enjoyed. I plan to roll up my sleeves and do the best job I can,” Cr O’Reilly said. “This year ahead will be an extremely important time for Frankston City, in the lead up to the state election later this month followed by the federal election in 2019. “As a key marginal seat Frankston has an opportunity to make all sides of politics take notice of the issues and projects that are important to our community. Our Future Frankston campaign has brought to the forefront four projects to meet the needs of our growing region and ensured the community’s voice has been heard. “There’s no doubt we have secured some fantastic funding commitments to date, however it is my job as Mayor to continue lobbying all levels of government to get the best outcomes for Frankston City. As a council, our collective goal is to see Frankston City recognised as the lifestyle capital of Victoria, and we will not stop until that goal is realised.”

Outgoing mayor Cr Hampton had been in the role for one year. He noted that it had been a “turbulent year” under his leadership, and made mention of how the “behaviour of some of the councillors” had led to the presence of a state government appointed municipal monitor during his term. “I think the monitor has done a good job, but I don’t think the job she has done is finished,” he said. “I just hope that into the future, I know the monitor is trying to do this, instead of only having seven councillors around the table prepared to negotiate and talk on the merits of things, that we can get nine of them talking on the merits of the topics that come, and I’m sure that will happen. If it does that will be for Frankston’s benefit. Cr Hampton thanked his wife Nancye for her support during his mayoral term. “My wife Nancye is an incredible woman, and I could not have served my community for so many years without her by my side. I am very lucky,” he said. Crs Michael O’Reilly and Glenn Aitken put their hand up for the mayoral position. Cr Steve Toms voted for Cr Aitken, while the remaining councillors voted for Cr O’Reilly. Cr Aitken told councillors before the vote that he thought “councillors need to move away from playing games and trading insults. It does nobody any particular good, but certainly achieves a great measure of damage.” “I have also got concerns about the way the mayoral elections are carried out. I do feel that the process needs to be improved greatly Mr Mayor, and I think half the council feels completely disenfranchised from the other half, and it doesn’t bode well.” Continued Page 7

Public facilities showered with support Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au DONATION Chain founder Helena Blomeley said she is “relieved” to have received funding to get started on building permanent shower facilities for the homeless in Frankston. Donation Chain’s campaign received a second big thumbs up at the last Frankston council meeting when they approved a $10,000 funding boost for the project, which matches the $10,000 put in by the federal government. “Having permanent shower facilities for everyone every day is just so important. It’s such a crucial thing, when people think of support for the homeless they think of food and clothes. Showers are a real missing link in the cycle of getting out of homelessness,” Ms Blomeley said. “We’re working in conjunction with Launch Housing on this. I’ve worked with them before and I’m really excited to work with them again, they are just brilliant. In their structure, everything is accommodated for, they accommodate for every need, there’s nothing missing. In Dandenong they have a public shower service with towels and toiletries. “I do a lot of outreach work and I meet a lot of homeless people. I’m so relieved for them.” As part of her advocacy campaign to secure funding, Ms Blomeley undertook the daunting task of forgoing showering for a week before washing at the public showers on the Frankston Foreshore. Those showers are out in the open, and only serviced with cold water. “It’s been three years that I’ve been trying to get this done. I think people just

and locked when unattended. Ms Blomeley thanked the work of Frankston councillor Steve Toms and Dunkley MP Chris Crewther for their efforts in securing the funds. Cr Toms said “these permanent shower facilities are integral for providing essential services to the city’s most vulnerable. It is an essential priority of council to care for our homeless population.” Mr Crewther said “I have been working with Donation Chain Inc. for a few months now to secure funds and a location for local permanent, public and private hot showers for use by the home-

FRANKSTON residents will have permits to burn cancelled on 17 November, after the CFA declared the municipality’s “fire danger period” would start on 19 November. Frankston councillor Colin Hampton said “residents need to be aware that all permits to burn will be cancelled as at 4pm on Saturday 17 November.” “All permits to burn are cancelled in line with the Fire Danger Period. Open air burning without a permit is a criminal matter. People should report illegal burning to Victoria Police or the CFA by calling 000,” he said. “Frankston City is well and truly prepared for what is expected to be a longer and hotter fire season than previously experienced. “We will be conducting final property inspections by early December and any infringements and compulsory clearing will be completed by Council before Christmas.” More information on the fire danger period can be found at cfa.vic.gov.au

assumed that there were showers available, so I’ve just been raising awareness. When I did the live video where I showered on the foreshore, people weren’t aware there was nothing there.” “Everyone I asked to do it with me said no, because they had work or kids or a function where they had to look appropriate. But people in these situations also have to look appropriate.” The shower facilities will be based at the comfort station on the end of Playne Street. Frankston Council have allowed for a toilet room in the facility to be repurposed. It will be manned when open

I was very pleased to secure $10,000 from the Federal Government towards building this, and I must thank Helena and her team for their significant advocacy without which this wouldn’t have happened.” Donations can be made to Donation Chain through the BSB 033 179 and the account number 33 55 48. They will be hosting a Christmas Twilight Market at Seaford Community Centre on 1 December.

FRANKSTON North schools have banded together in support of the White Ribbon foundation. Their “Frankston North stands up against violence in our community” event will take place at Pat Rollow Reserve on Friday, 30 November. Councillor Sandra Mayer will be in attendance, along with Sgt Andrew Horscroft from the family violence division of the police. The event will kick off at 4pm and feature school performances, activities, guest speakers, classic cars and bikes, and food.

Strong support: Tash, Jan, Meaghan, Genevieve, and Maz from Carrum Downs Salvation Army give a thumbs up to donations made after a brazen theft at their storage unit. Picture: Gary Sissons

Community rallies behind ransacked Salvos Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Carrum Downs Salvation Army Corps is bouncing back strongly after a heartless robbery. There was a break in at one of their storage containers and bicycles were stolen. The bikes were intended to be given to in need children for Christmas. An outpouring of community support has followed, and locals have got behind the Salvos and helped them get back on their feet. “A couple of weeks ago from our storage container we had some brand new bikes still in boxes stolen,” Sal-

vation Army volunteer Meaghan Grist said. “The week before Christmas we have a couple of hundred families come through the Salvos Church, and we distribute toys. These bikes were supposed to be for that.” Ms Grist said the Salvation Army Corps had been overwhelmed at how the community has reacted to the theft. “We’ve had quite a few second hand bikes donated that we’re hoping to get a bike shop to service for the kids. We’ve replaced nine bikes with brand new bikes, they’ll be allocated at Christmas to families in need,” she said.

“This is the fourth robbery in two years at the same place, so a company has also come in and installed $2000 of CCTV for us. “There’s been a huge outpouring. We’ve had scooters and bikes, there’s also been donations made at the Frankston Sunday market. It seems to be going on and on. As sad and heartbreaking as it was, there’s been a bit of a silver lining.” The theft has been reported to the police, who are investigating the matter. Donations can be made to the Salvation Army by visiting them at 1265 Frankston-Dandenong Road.

Lights festival turns 21 THE giant Christmas tree has made its way out of storage once again, as work gets underway to erect it as part of Frankston’s Christmas Festival of Lights . Tony Hansen has been rigging the lights for the festival for nearly two decades, and has recently had a change of uniform to help get into the Christmas spirit. “A few years ago I acquired a Santa suit. Each year I put the jolly costume on to delight the young kids who walk by on their way to school,” he said “My assistant dresses as an elf. We get into the spirit of Christmas and make it an enjoyable occasion for onlookers. I love seeing the kids smiling faces at the school next door while they shout at me how good they’ve been this year. “I love seeing Santa perform his magic with the

amazing light show, but I always have my climbing gear with me just in case they need my extra help. So far, it’s gone off without a hitch every year.” Mr Hansen was first asked to work on the lighting in the year 2000. “Mr Wrigley, the electrician, asked for our assistance with the light installation, and 18 years later it’s the job I most look forward to every year,” he said. Outgoing Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said “this year we’re celebrating 21 years of Frankston’s Christmas Festival of Lights. It’s a night of magic for the young and young at heart.” The tree will be lit at the festival, which will take place from 5pm on 24 November. The event will take place on Davey Street, and entry will be free.

Invitation to lunch: Cian from St Joseph’s School hands an invitation for the Chelsea Community Christmas Lunch to the Chamberlain family, from Frankston South. Picture: Yanni

Lunch showcases the Christmas spirit CHRISTMAS is all about spending time together with people who care about you, and the Chelsea Community Christmas lunch is all about making that happen. Vanessa Heredia, one of the event’s organisers, said the lunch was a great way to bring together people who might otherwise be alone on Christmas day. “The Chelsea Community Christmas Lunch team are a group of local families, doing what we can for our community to ensure nobody feels alone on Christmas Day,” Ms Heredia said. “Last year we celebrated with over 125 guests, who not only shared a wonderful hot

meal, but also enjoyed entertainment, music and an opportunity to meet others who may have otherwise spent the afternoon on their own.” The event will take place at St Joseph’s Primary Hall in Chelsea on Christmas Day. Unwrapped gifts for children can be donated at Ray White Chelsea until 17 November. O’Brien Real Estate will be collecting non-perishable groceries on the behalf of CCCL until 1 December. Guests can register for the event through www.chelseacommunitychristmaslunch.org.au or by ringing 9772 2211




Biodiversity is an important key to sustaining life as we know it! Interaction between and preservation of different species is vital for a healthy environment! Our forests help regulate weather patterns both locally and globally. They also prevent erosion and topsoil loss. The Sahara desert in Africa is expanding and if desertification continues to happen here, it will be a disaster for our ecological future. The State and Federal Liberals and Federal Labor have each pledged $250 million, if they win, to electrify the Stony Point line to Baxter. This is impossible to justify in economic or environmental terms, particularly as the current line is adequately covered by small diesel trains. These funds could be spent in much more beneficial ways such as: • $50 M would provide 100KW solar systems without any rebates to at least 250 schools. This would be an impressive step forward and investment into renewable energy. • $50 M would help secure the entire Daintree Lowland Forest from potential development and allow it to be attached through covenants to the Daintree World Heritage National Park or protected in perpetuity through Nature Refuge status. This would promote and maintain its unique biodiversity while supporting the natural interaction between World Heritage Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef. • $50 million should be allocated to independent non-profit organizations whose mission is to provide conservation

to all indigenous animal and plant species. Priority should be given organizations which create networks of feral proof sanctuaries thereby protecting threatened wildlife and ecosystems. • $50 million should be allocated in $100,000 packages to farmers, particularly in drought prone areas, to retain, maintain and create indigenous flora reserves. • $50 million should be allocated to support Australian scientific inventions, which, through lack of local capital support, seek overseas investment. This could be

supervised by representatives from scientific, economic and trade fields. • $50 M should be allocated to set up an International Response Team whereby Australia collaborates and coordinates the expertise of countries wishing to be involved in natural disaster relief enabling a rapid and organized response. The above suggestions would be an important step forward to a sustainable future, while creating employment! Authorised by W.Smith 11 Dell Road, Frankston 3199

Frankston unopposed. Cr Sandra Mayer thanked the outgoing mayor at the meeting, telling Cr Hampton she had “always been very fond” of his work. “You mentored me in your first term as mayor and you put me to work,” she said. You’ve been like a second dad to me, you’ve worked tremendously hard this year, and one thing I’ve always admired about you is that you are a very good politician. You’ve been in the Labor party for a long time and you know how to lobby for funding. “I thank you for your strong leadership this year.” Cr Brian Cunial told Cr Hampton he was like an “older brother” to him. “I admire that your word is your word. When I was elected I had a couple of people in the community tell me to watch out for Colin Hampton because you can’t trust anything he says. I have never heard so much absolute crap.” Cr Kris Bolam said that Cr Hampton “had so-

“The energy that you convey towards the role is incredible and I’ve been most impressed. I’ve also been by your passion and your determination, in particular your advocacy regarding the state election,” he said. Cr Quinn McCormack said “I wish to thank you for your year as the mayor, and in particular single out your advocacy work as being particularly stellar on behalf of the city. At times we must have been at different meetings, because I can say I saw nine out of the nine councillors working on the merits of matters, maybe not all the time, but certainly a lot of the time.” Cr Toms thanked the mayor for his term and said that his “skill and expertise in lobbying politicians is very high.” He also highlighted a trip to Canberra he took with the mayor during his term. Cr Lillian O’Connor said Cr Hampton had “set a great example of what a mayor should be.” Councillors met behind closed doors earlier in the week to decide the mayor and deputy mayor positions prior to the public meeting.

CARRUM Liberal candidate Donna Bauer has conceded that $450 million may not be enough to complete the extension of the Frankston line to Baxter. The project, which would involve electrifying the line and duplicating the track, has received $225 million in funding from the federal government, while state Liberals have pledged to match that funding if elected. However, state candidate Ms Bauer told a Frankston Council organised candidates’ forum on 31 October that “it is going to be a staged project”. “We know that Mornington Peninsula Shire and council actually want to continue the project down their way as well. It will be ongoing, there is 8km that will be electrified along the exiting Stony Point line. Initially we may just get to Langwarrin, and not get all the way to Baxter. We’re very interested to see the business case. But I think that to say we’re waiting on a $3 million business case, now’s the time, put your money behind it. We’re heading into an election in a very marginal seat, we’ve already committed $225 million here, if we need more money, and if I get the privilege of being your next member for Carrum, I’ll lobby for more money.” Ginevra Hosking from the Committee for Greater Frankston has called on state Labor to commit to the project. “Many people in our region think the extension is guaranteed to be built. It’s not. The Liberal Party at federal and state levels, and federal Labor have said that they will fund the project if they are elected, but the Victorian Labor government has yet to jump on board,” she said. “Our fear is that unless the Andrews state government commits to building the project, the Frankston rail extension plan will languish and the $225 million of Commonwealth funding allocated in the May budget will be lost.” The Labor state government is conducting a business case into the project to work out the exact cost before any commitment is made.

Shire changes track on Hastings line Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au Mornington Peninsula Shire has changed track and virtually ruled out backing Baxter as the end of the electrified train line from Frankston. Shire councillors last week signalled they want an electrified rail line to Hastings, ruling out their earlier support for Baxter to be first in a two-stage electrification process. In the lead up to the Saturday 24 November state election, councillors have called on “all political parties … to commit to extending electrification of the Frankston railway line to Hastings in the current Baxter electrification business case”. In doing so, councillors have also withdrawn their support for a two-stage development that would see an electrified line go to Baxter first and then Hastings. However, the politicians are unlikely to back the shire as the cost of electrifying the line to Baxter has been put at $450 million while $3 billion may be needed to take it to Hastings. “The idea for a staged extension, starting with Baxter, leaves the possibility of waiting decades for the electric line to get to Hastings,” Cr David Gill said yesterday (Monday 5 November). “Council has now decided on a major campaign to push for the electrified rail line to go to Hastings. “Hastings is the logical place to end the electrified line because it has plenty of available industrial and residential land. “There is much more at stake than Frankston’s

need for parking and further development opportunities by moving its problems down the track. “Baxter, in the green wedge, is not the site for large scale infrastructure development.” The shire’s about face coincides with Planning Minister Richard Wynne’s announcement that a re-elected Labor government would “better protect Melbourne’s green wedges from overdevelopment”. Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio said Labor will “do the planning work to connect 1881 hectares of parks and reserves … [between the] EdithvaleSeaford wetlands, Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve, Studio Park, Dame Elisabeth Arboretum, Cruden Farm, Langwarrin Flora and Fauna, Baxter Park, Sages Cottages, Moorooduc Quarry and Devilbend Natural Features Reserve”. The shire was upset earlier this year when it was left out of talks to make Baxter the end of the line, even though the town is part of the peninsula municipality. Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Bryan Payne told The Times on Monday that Baxter should not be the site for a one kilometre long overnight train stabling area. He said the business case study for electrifying the line from Frankston to Baxter “should go all the way to Hastings”. A recommendation adopted by shire councillors at the Monday 29 October planning services committee meeting says the business case by the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) “would best be served by extension of the electrified rail line to Hastings”.

Contamination hits iceberg A HEAD of iceberg lettuce has been found to contain a 75 millimetre nail at Carrum Downs Coles on Ballarto Road. The nail was pulled from the product by a customer at 1.40 pm on 3 November. Management took the product from the customer, and called police to investigate. Police said that staff had told them the shelves had been restocked just 10 minutes prior to the discovery of the foreign object. CCTV of the aisle proved inconclusive as to whether the nail had been put there accidentally or maliciously.

Trailer on fire POLICE were called out to investigate a suspicious fire on Frank Street Frankston on 6 November. A 6x4 trailer had been parked at a community housing area, and was found alight at 9.05pm. Police say council had been made aware of the parked trailer. Frankston Police are currently investigating the blaze, and have not yet identified any suspects.

Thieves strike victim A VICTIM is recovering with lacerations to their face after being struck on Davey Street, Frankston

Golf buggy blues A 27 year old man was arrested without incident on Karingal Drive on 6 November in relation to an aggravated burglary. Police say the man broke into a home at the Big 4 park in Frankston South while the owner slept and went through their things. Cash, jewellery, and ipad, and Xbox, and car keys were alleged to be taken. Man allegedly stole a golf buggy before returning to steal the car which he had taken the keys for, a Ford Falcon. The car was recovered and the man was arrested the next day. He was remanded and appeared on 7 November at Frankston Magistrates Court. A 19-year-old woman was also arrested and released on bail.

Three car smash investigated SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol is investigating a three-car collision that occured in Frankston on 7 November. Investigators have been told a blue Nissan Micra was attempting

to make a right hand turn from Skye Road to Dalpura Circuit when a Silver Holden Commodore crashed into the rear of the stationary car. The Nissan was forced to the oncoming lane where it then collided with a Toyota Land Cruiser. The female passenger of the Nissan was airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries. The female driver of the vehicle was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The male driver of the Toyota and a female passenger were also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The male driver of the third vehicle is assisting police with their enquiries. Police are appealing for anyone with dash-cam footage of the Silver Holden Commodore or the collision to contact Crime Stoppers of 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

Four drivers were fined for failing to wear seat belts, and three for using mobile phones while driving. “By far the most impressive result for the long weekend was the fact that our areas did not have any serious injury or fatal collisions, which is a good result considering the amount of traffic on our roads over the period,” Leading Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said. “Well done to all those that did their bit by driving, riding and

walking safely – please keep it up.”

No government support for fencing at The Pillars Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au THE state government is still undecided about a temporary fence being built at The Pillars cliff jumping site despite a plea by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council for its help in controlling summer hordes. Port Phillip regional director Kelly Crosthwaite said on Friday the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning was “currently reviewing the information provided by council [on] construction of a temporary fence and will continue to work closely with council to resolve this matter”. Her comment followed a public meeting at the shire’s Mornington office Thursday 1 November which discussed the council’s inability to properly manage parking issues, keep watercraft away, and prevent mainly young thrill-seekers from risking death or injury by jumping at the popular site. Along with the young people comes litter, faeces, parking woes, alcohol and de-vegetation of the site which has become a summer nightmare for nearby residents. The meeting, chaired by Cr Bev Colomb and attended by about 50 people, aimed to “let residents know what’s proposed and to get their views”. Speakers included Mornington MP David Morris, resident Gill Johns, and shire officers Jessica Wingad and Niall McDonagh. Also discussed was the council’s inability to stop water craft: the proposed exclusion zone must be approved by Parks Victoria and policed by Parks Victoria or the Water Police.

Run for hospital funds BROTHERS Bradley and Lucas Banks are excited to be taking part in the annual Kids Fun Run with K163 this weekend, to help raise funds for the special care nursery at Frankston Hospital. The fun runs, where children get to run alongside the historic steam train K163, go from 150 metres for three-year-olds out to four kilometres. Each runner will receive a show bag and a personalised certificate at the event, Sunday 18 November at Moorooduc Railway Station. Rotary Club of Mount Eliza is helping organise the event. The Banks family are one of the top fundraisers for the event with $250 so far, which will be used to help care for the hospital’s littlest patients. “It’s a good cause and it promotes a healthy lifestyle for kids,” says the boys’ mum, Emily Banks. “It’s kids raising money for kids which is good.” Bradley agrees with his mum that the event is for a great cause. He was a patient at Frankston Hospital once himself when he had asthma. The seven-year-old will be lining up for his second fun run this year, with four-year-old Lucas running for the first time. “Last time was fun and I did my personal best, but I didn’t care how fast or slow I was,” Bradley said. Register online at www.k163funrun.org.au or register at the run on Sunday but be sure to allow sufficient time before your run.

THE Pillars meeting at Mornington Peninsula Shire offices, Mornington.

Ms Crosthwaite said DELWP had been working with the council to develop a long-term plan for The Pillars. She said a plan had been finalised and adopted by council at its 11 September 2018 meeting. “The closure of the site with fencing was not supported by the community during the preparation of the long term management plan,” she said.

Previously, the mayor Cr Bryan Payne had sent a letter to energy, environment and climate change minister Lily D’Ambrosio raising “a range of issues, including the extreme risk to public safety” and request for indemnity for the council “against any liability, losses or claims which may arise from or in connection with the use of the Pillars site by members of the public”.

Peace celebrations in Frankston mark end of the war Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE quiet which had been brooding over Frankston, since the outburst on Friday, when it was rumored that the Allies’ Peace terms had been agreed, and hostilities on all battle fronts had ceased, was broken on Monday evening at about nine o’clock when it was officially announced that Peace had at least been proclaimed and the war was ended. Although Friday’s demonstration had somewhat worn off the novelty, there was no less sincerity and relief in the hearts off the crowd which thronged the streets and gave vent to their pent up feelings a few minutes after the bells began to tell the glad news. All meetings which were being held were immediately adjourned, and Cr Oates addressing the people from the cannon, amid cheers, proclaimed the following day a public holiday. On the hat being passed round for funds to obtain fireworks, the sum of £5 was raised. Crowds of people remained in the street till a late hour singing, ringing bells, and demonstrating an intense patriotic feeling. A number of lads, under a large Union Jack, headed a procession which marched the streets. THE PUBLIC HOLIDAY. On Tuesday Frankston was gaily decorated with bunting and greens. Volunteers carted loads of wood etc to the cricket ground where the evening’s celebrations were to take place. The Langwarrin band arriving at midday, made things very gay with music and at three o’clock in the afternoon a great mass of people had

assembled in the main street, where a service was held. Cr Oates presided and apologised for the unavoidable absence of Rev Tonkin and Mr Brody, and addresses were delivered by Rev M’Farlane, Rev Rymer, and Captain Gates. Each speaker pointed out that it was the hand of God who had assisted the Allies in withering the Beast of Berlin, and exhorted the people, in the hard days yet before us, to use love and sympathy rather than force, in dealing with our fellow creatures. A number of hymns were sung heartily during the service, for which the band played the accompaniments. A collection for the Honor Roll and Avenue of honor was taken up, and a good response was made, the sum of £10 being subscribed on this occasion. The day of rejoicing was drawing to a conclusion, but the joy was not yet over. A very large crowd gathered in witness the burning of an effigy of the Kaiser. At eight o’clock the fire was lit and the mass of flame shot into the sky, illuminating the animated faces of the exultant spectators. A resplendent cry went up when, at last, the head of the monster rolled onto the ground a smoking smoldering mess. Gaiety was somewhat stilled in that no fire works were set off. Cr Oates explained that this was on account of the danger to the public through the explosives, a number of accidents having occurred in the city through thoughtless people throwing crackers into a crowd. *** THE following additional subscriptions have been received by the hon

secretary in aid of the Frankston Honor Avenue :Mr Welshman, 10s; Mr W. Williams, £1; Mrs Williams, £1; Mr F. H. Smith, £2 2s; Mr Martozona, £1 1s; G. W. Wells, £1 1s ; Mrs Bolger, 5s. *** REV E. Tonkin will conduct both services in the Frankston Methodist Church on Sunday next. In the evening the subject of address will be “The demoralising effect of the liquor traffic, and the demand for prohibition”. Members of the I.O.R. and W.C.T.U. will be present. Solos will be rendered by Misses G. Croskell and E. Gale. *** A CONFIRMATION service will be held in the Mount Eliza Church of England on Sunday afternoon next when the Bishop of Melbourne will perform the rite of confirmation on a number of children of members of the church in that district and also children belonging to the church at Moorooduc. *** AN excursion train will leave Somerville at 8.10, and Frankston at 8.45 next Friday morning, November 22, and run right through to Royal Park Station, in order to convey, children and parents to a Frankston District Picnic at the Zoo. The following places have been invited to participate: Carrum Downs, Seaford, Frankston, Mt Eliza, Langwarrin, Baxter, Somerville and Moorooduc. Families to provide their own refreshments. Hot water will be obtainable. The precise time of starting will be

notified by dodger later on. *** ANNIVERSARY services in connection with the Frankston Methodist Sunday School was held on Sunday last which were highly successful. Rev J . E. Warren, of Balaclava, preached in the morning, afternoon and evening to excellent congregations. A feature of the services was the fine singing of he children, ably assisted by an orchestra of seven instruments. On Monday the church building was filled, when a good programme of music and singing was gone through, which was brought to a rather abrupt conclusion by the declaration of peace, the majority of the audience leaving to take part in the celebrations. *** ST PANCRAS’ private hospital will in future be carried on by a capable nurse in the person of Sister Campbell R.V.T.N.A., who has commenced her duties this week. Sister Campbell comes to Frankston with excellent credentials and will, no doubt soon find she is a most welcome resident. *** The friends of Mr Elrick Tait, son of Mr and Mrs C. Tait, of Frankston, who is a wireless operator on H. M. Troopship ‘Field Marshall’, will be pleased to hear that he is recovering from a severe attack of Spanish influenza and is now on his way back to Australia, after being away on active service for some considerable time. A most interesting letter has been received in which he states that the ‘Field Marshall’ was made Commo-

dore of the Convoy recently. Elrick wishes to be remembered to all “Aussie” friends. *** AT 3 p.m., on Sunday next, a united Thanksgiving service will be held in the Frankston Park, at which every body is earnestly requested to attend. Local ministers will give addresses, and the singing will be led by Mr Proster’s orchestra. A collection for the Honor Roll will be taken up. *** MEMBERS of the Presbyterian Church spent a very pleasant evening at ‘Osborne House’ on Tuesday last, where there was a social gathering. A programme of songs and recitations was gone through and the items were all much appreciated. Before partaking of supper, which was daintily and tastefully laid out, the tables being decorated with beautiful flowers as well as an abundance of appetising dishes, Mr Brodie, Minister of the Presbyterian Church at Frankston, presented Miss Cadle, Matron of St. Pancras Hospital, with a handsome gold pendant, as a mark of esteem, on behalf of her friends in the church. Miss Cadle has been compelled to take an extended holiday and left on Wednesday for Tasmania, where it is hoped a complete rest and change will restore her health, for which reason she has had to relinquish her duties. The singing of the national anthem brought a most pleasant evening to a close. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 16 November 1918

Confessions of a Cultural Counterfeit By Stuart McCullough THE technical term is, I think, dilettante. As a young adult, I became very enthusiastic about certain art forms for short periods of time. I think I assumed they’d rub off on me and make me a more interesting person. More sophisticated. The targets for my enthusiasm were selected completely at random. As a result, my cultural education is incredibly hit and miss, with small pockets of extraordinary expertise, surrounded my great chasms of ignorance. Tragically for me, I couldn’t claim ignorance as a defence. Growing up in a small town like Tyabb, you could easily assume that I’d grown up without being exposed to much in terms of art and music, but you’d be wrong. Our house was stuffed to the gills with an array of great cultural treasures, most of them belonging to my father. Though he’d almost certainly reject the label, he too was a dilettante. Say what you like about Spotify, it has nothing on ‘Record Club’. So far as I can tell, my father had belonged to a ‘Record Club’ and, as a result, had received a broad selection of classical LPs. The basic premise of ‘Record Club’, so far as I can tell, is they gave you whatever they decided was good for you. Don’t like Brahms? Too bad! Sick to death of Dvorak? Tough luck! It’s coming through the post whether you asked for it or not. But although my father collected them, I don’t recall him ever playing them. All the same, those LPs sat in a queue, waiting to be discovered. There were books, too. Masterpiec-


es by great authors lined the shelves of my father’s study. Some were still wrapped in the original plastic, others were paperbacks whose well-thumbed pages had turned the colour of tea. Not that our thumbs got anywhere near them – the study was strictly off limits, except when my father was at work and wouldn’t know the

Frankston Times 13 November 2018

difference. Books and records were the trophies of adulthood. They didn’t need to be experienced, they simply needed to be held in captivity, like canaries. After leaving home, I took an interest in opera. Not because I’d been taught to do so but because it was a complete and utter mystery. To that

point in my life, I’d never seen an opera that didn’t include the word ‘light’ in the description and have the names ‘Gilbert’ and / or ‘Sullivan’ hanging at the top of the poster. Because I knew nothing, my selections were largely based on the CD cover. Say what you will about such an approach; but if you used that method for your own purchases, there’s no way you’d have anything by Ed Sheeran and your ears would thank you for it. I soon discovered that opera is quite daunting. I’ll admit to being totally intimidated by Wagner’s legendary Ring Cycle. Fifteen hours of opera seemed like a lot, even to a novice like myself. Besides, who wants to listen to fifteen hours of music about a trip from Greensborough to Laverton? It takes only half that time in peak hour. Luckily, I chanced upon Puccini and, almost instantly, the whole opera thing made a lot of sense. I discovered that soap operas are just operas with the music sucked out. No more, no less. It’d be great if, for a week, they decided to put the music back in again. Imagine Toadfish from Neighbours unleashing his version of ‘Nessum Dorma’? Or picture Alf Stewart from Home and Away performing a rendition of Rossini’s Largo al Factotum from behind the bar? It’d be awesome. Thinking back, it was my preoccupation with these kinds of profound but ultimately useless distractions that meant I got very little done in my twenties. For reasons that are no longer clear to me, I also took an interest in French new-wave cinema. I liked

the idea of dropping names like ‘Truffaut’, ‘Jean-Luc Goddard’ and ‘Chabrol’ into everyday conversation. I was indiscriminate. In retrospect, I should have waited for the right moment – it’s unlikely that people want to discuss such things whilst purchasing half a kilo of smoked ham from the supermarket deli. I suspect my interest was fuelled by the misguided belief that watching French movies made up for the fact I couldn’t speak the language, despite studying it for two whole years. Truth be told, I struggled. I didn’t always understand what was happening and, on occasion, it seemed a little slow. Francois Truffaut’s ‘The 400 Blows’ may well be a masterpiece but, from my perspective, it was at least three hundred and eighty eight blows too long. Twelve would have been plenty. I’m not sure any of it stuck. It’s been ages since I saw an opera by Puccini and even longer since I watched anything by Francois Truffaut. But they’re both a part of my youth. They remind me of a period of time where I didn’t really know what I liked so tried a bit of everything. I miss being that curious. The other week, I was scrolling through the shelves at JB Hi-Fi. There I spotted a box set collection of films by Francois Truffaut and seeing it made me happy for reasons I can’t quite explain. These are the souvenirs of youth. They stay with us always. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

In 2017 Daryl has entered the ARIA Hall of Fame as a solo artist More than two decades on from the partnership that produced the multi-platinum albums ‘Edge’ (1988) and ‘Rise’ (1990), Sony Music Australia is ecstatic to announce the release of the legendary Daryl Braithwaite’s album ‘Days Go By!’ The album showcases Daryl’s career highlights to date and features brand new music.

Five wicket haul: Hastings were helped along by Malith Chathuranga as he tore through Seaford Tiger’s middle order. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Heatherhill set a mammoth task for Carrum By Brodie Cowburn


HEATHERHILL have batted strongly on the first day of their two dayer against Carrum to set their opponents a daunting total to chase. Winning the toss and choosing to bat, Heatherhill started shakily and lost their first wicket for just 11. Kieran Miller was waiting at first drop to come in, and he did all the damage. Miller put together brilliant innings of 93 runs before being bowled by Hand, and helped his side post a mammoth total of 9/285 before declaring with an over left to play. Carrum defended out their lone over for the day without loss of wicket. At Olympic Park, Rosebud have put themselves in a competitive position against Delacombe Park. The Bud’s middle order all put together decent performances to help their side along to a respectable total of 184. After Rosebud were bowled out, Delacombe Park were made to bat for four short overs. They played it safe and ended the day at 0/2, needed 183 more to claim the first innings. Seaford look as though they will defend their first innings total of 152 after getting off to a strong start when bowling against Mt Martha. Seaford put together a decent total of 152 before being bowled out. Michael Clavin was brilliant from his 15 overs, taking 5/29 to restrict Seaford to the relatively tame total. Mt Martha’s batsmen failed to capitalise on their good chance to win


though, as they collapsed to a paltry 4/49 at the close of play. Seaford Tigers also struggled against their Hastings opponents, with David James top scoring by adding 42 to a total of 132. Malith Chathuranga tore through the middle order and tail, claiming a 5 wicket haul. Hastings’ run chase started well, and the ended the day at 1/53.


MOOROODUC have struggled badly to post a poor total of 86 off 44 overs against Main Ridge. Moorooduc’s top order fell for next to nothing, as all Main Ridge bowlers worked hard together to wipe out their opponents. Daniel Polson was the pick of the players with ball in hand, taking a well deserved 3/17. Main Ridge surpassed Moorooduc to claim the first innings, but did it without conviction or really capitalising on their opponent’s struggles. Ridge ended the day at 8/139 off 36 overs, having struggled to deal with the bowling of Reece Cordeaux. He took six wickets before the close of play. At Somerville Reserve, Pines have battled hard to post a respectable total against the home side. Strong consistent middle order performances for the Pines saw them finish up all out for 189, a defendable effort. Grant Humphrey’s innings of 43 batting at number 7 helped his side greatly.

Frankston Times 13 November 2018

Somerville lost an early wicket before the close of play, finishing on 1/14 heading into the second day. Long Island have Pubudu Edirisinghe to thank for the fact they built a respectable total, as his dominant knock of 83 helped his side to a final total of 165 all out. Michael Ballard was the pick of the bowlers for their Baden Powell opponents. He claimed the prize wicket of Edirisinghe on his way to a five wicket haul. Baden Powell’s chase hit a speed bump when that lost opener Shannon Small for just 10, and they finished up at 1/10 off 15 overs. Crib Point will have to work hard to defend their total of 168 in their second day of play against Red Hill. Brent Martin helped to restrict the run rate, as he bowled 17 maidens and took 4 wickets from his 35 overs. Red Hill faced one over before stumps, and ended up at 0/1.


TYABB have got things started on a disastrous note in their run chase against Skye. Chasing 154 to claim the first innings, the Yabbies lost two early wickets from their 10 overs at the crease. Opener Aaron Edwards remains not out, but Tyabb have their work cut out for them at 2/12. At RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye have made a meal of what seemed to be an easy run chase against Tootgarook. Tootgarook looked to be on their way to a decent total at 1/38. But

things quickly went pear shaped. A collapse from their tail proved to make the most damage, as their final five batsmen combined for just two runs. Chasing 110 to win Tyabb looked in the box seat, before an inspired bowling performance from Jacob Long made things interesting. Long took an astonishing 8 wickets as Tyabb finished the day at 9/73. With just one wicket in hand, they will need a miracle on day two to claim the win. Carrum Downs performed well in their home match against Dromana, batting out the afternoon at a casual pace and ending the day at 8/181 off their 80 overs. Jayden Parker was dangerous with ball in hand for Dromana, posting figures of 6/76 off his 31 overs. The final match for Saturday saw Boneo open up a big advantage over Frankston YCW, with opener Chris Jobling doing the damage. Jobling smashed 10 fours and 2 sixes on his way to a marvellous century. Despite Jobling’s heroics his top order let him down. They posted scores of 4, 7, 5, 0, 5, and 8. Jobling ended up being the last man dismissed, as Boneo finished their 80 overs at 8/199. Balnarring have a bye.


BAXTER look to have an easy task ahead of them to chase down Peninsula Old Boys’ total of 106 runs in their two day clash. Thomas La Brooy is the only OB

player who can hold his head high, as he top scored with a knock of 53 not out. Things looked particularly nasty before his innings saving stint, as he came in with his side at 4/5 . Baxter’s run chase hit a speed bump early as they lost both their openers, and will continue next week from 2/24. Sorrento also look to be on track to chase down their total when the second day of play rolls around, as Pearcedale set them 141 for victory. Pearcedale were bowled out with 30 overs left to spare, giving the Sharks plenty of time to make a dent in their total before stumps. Sorrento lost their first wicket for just 4 runs, but got things back on track to finish the day well at 2/55. Emil Madsen Reserve played host to Mt Eliza and Mornington in the first of their two day clash, as the Bulldogs won the toss and elected to bat first. With their innings not off to the most encouraging start at 2/48, Ben Clements came in to stamp his authority on the game. Clements’ knock of 85 set his side up for a big total of all out for 216. He put away 13 fours on his way to the near century. Langwarrin also put together a great all round team performance to post a strong total against their Flinders opponents. A 55 run stand from their openers set things up for a good score, as Langwarrin batted out the afternoon and finished up at 8/201.


Kuol re-signs, Orritt undecided SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN has successfully fended off overtures from other NPL clubs and has agreed terms with striker John Kuol for a second straight season. And while Mornington looks set to sign Langy striker Liam Baxter it may lose attacking midfielder Sammy Orritt and striker Max Etheridge. Dandenong City was among a number of clubs interested in Kuol but the opportunity of being coached by former Fulham assistant manager and Newcastle Jets head coach Scott Miller was too good to refuse. “It was a no-brainer really,” Kuol said. “I wanted the chance to be coached by someone of Scott’s experience plus Langy’s been really good to me and I feel at home there.” Kuol, 24, is from South Sudan and has played for Traralgon City, Morwell Pegasus and Dandenong Thunder. His spell with Thunder in 2017 was short-lived and he returned to Pegasus in the back half of that season before joining Langy for its inaugural season in NPL2. Kuol will be part of a new-look Langwarrin attack featuring Damir Stoilovic, David Stirton, Luis Covarrubias and Jordan Templin and is confident that the side can gel quickly. “The new players don’t mean anything if we are not operating as a unit and there is no chemistry so that will be the biggest challenge for Scotty.” And it’s a challenge Kuol expects the head coach to win. “I’m really looking forward to playing my best football and I think we are going to be the team to look out for. “I think we could go all the way.” But Langy will almost certainly have to do so without the services of Baxter, Kuol’s attacking partner last season. Baxter, 27, joined Langwarrin from Goulburn Valley Suns in April 2017. He was on the books of Scottish Championship outfit Inverness Caledonian Thistle until he was 17 when he decided to leave to get more first team football. He played in the Highland League with Brora Rangers, Buckie Thistle and Forres Mechanics before coming to Melbourne. Mornington senior coach Adam Jamieson has been an admirer of the striker for some time so it’s no surprise that he looks set to end up at Dallas Brooks Park.

Staying put: Langwarrin striker John Kuol has signed on for a second season at Lawton Park. Picture: John Punshon

Orritt, 25, has met with Jamieson and outlined his intentions to play at the highest possible level next season. “I’ve told ‘Jamo’ I want to keep my options open even though I know that Mornington will be an NPL club sooner rather than later,” he said. “I’m good friends with Oakleigh assistant coach Chris Marshall and I’m planning to train there.” Mornington signed Orritt from NZ outfit Coastal Spirit during the 2017 season. He was a junior at English club Rotherham United, had a short spell at Lincoln United then played college football in the US for Limestone College in South Carolina before signing for Scottish club Cowdenbeath in 2015. Orritt set the local scene alight in the back half of the 2017 season and many observers believe he could play at a higher level however visa quotas look certain to play a part in his final destination. Mornington brought Etheridge to Dallas Brooks Park last season. The 28-year-old Englishman had been here previously and had played with Morwell Pegasus, Bentleigh Greens and Kingston City. There is a strong rumour that he’ll end up at Kingston again. Mornington’s annual golf day will be held at Mornington Golf Club on Friday 18 January and will incorporate

a sportsman’s dinner featuring former professional players Michael Bridges, Terry Hennessey, Doug Hodgson and Nathan Peel. An auction of current and historic soccer memorabilia will be held in the evening. Former Mornington specialist coach and local goalkeeping legend Peter Blasby has accepted an offer from Croatian-backed NPL club Dandenong City to become its goalkeeping coach. Blasby and Dandenong head coach Zeljko Kuzman met last week and thrashed out a deal which will initially see Blasby holding two sessions a week with the senior and under-20 keepers. Blasby is keen to develop the role and work with the club’s junior NPL keepers. Dandenong’s sister club Melbourne Knights named its team of the century in 2003 as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations and Blasby was selected in goal. He has been held in high regard by the Croatian community for some time and regularly shuns overtures from Knights who are based in Melbourne’s western suburbs. Dandenong City heads to South Australia later this month to play a friendly match against Adelaide Croatia Raiders. In State 2 South-East news Penin-

sula Strikers have invited expressions of interest for the reserves coaching position. The successful applicant will work with a predominantly under-23 squad and must have prior coaching experience, good communicative skills and either hold or be willing to attain a Clevel coaching licence. Applicants can email Marty Sutherland at president@peninsulastrikers. com and applications close at 5pm on Monday 19 November. In State 4 South news getting Langwarrin midfielder Jonny Guthrie to Baxter Park may be the key to luring back midfielder Matt Morgan, who is keen to play alongside Guthrie. Morgan left Baxter midway through last season and joined Hampton Park United but that club has been plagued with administrative upheaval and it’s understood that he is keen to move. He already has been targeted by Skye United but Baxter remains firmly on his radar. Baxter brothers Owen and Liam Kilner have been the subject of recent rumours linking them with a switch to Dandenong Warriors who were hoping to sign their father and former Baxter gaffer Roy Kilner as head coach. Owen Kilner made it clear that he won’t be heading in that direction. “I certainly won’t be playing for Dandenong Warriors and at this point in time I’m playing for Baxter,” he said. “I’m pretty keen to see what [new coach] George Hughes brings to the club because he seems very ambitious and makes it quite clear what he wants to achieve.” Late on Sunday news emerged that Roy Kilner had accepted an offer to work alongside Gavin Ithier at Baxter’s State 4 rival Sandown Lions. “Imagine if the opening game of the season was Baxter versus Sandown. Now that would be nice,” Roy Kilner said. “As for Owen and Liam I expect them to remain at Baxter.” In State 5 South news Somerville Eagles have outdone a couple of lo-

cal clubs by snapping up experienced midfielder Will O’Brien from Frankston Pines. He becomes the ambitious club’s fourth off-season signing and it’s believed midfielder Daniel Hodge will be next as Somerville builds a strong senior squad for its title tilt in 2019. New joint senior coach Scott Morrison was instrumental in signing striker Mark Pagliarulo, midfielder Carlo Cardoso, defender/winger Callum Richardson and O’Brien and his relationship with Hodge from their Rosebud Heart days looks set to secure his signature. Director of coaching Zach Peddersen says that the influx of new players may not end there. “We expect another three to four players from other local clubs to attend pre-season training,” Peddersen said. “We’ve lost Damien Finnegan from the senior squad due to work commitments but he is coaching our fourths in the Bayside League and all other players have committed to returning.” Somerville’s coaching staff consists of star striker David Greening (playercoach), Morrison (joint coach), Stan Packer (assistant coach and youth development coach), Stuart Mitchell (goalkeeping coach), Thomas MorrisThomas (reserves coach), Paul Robinson (thirds coach) and Finnegan. The club also agreed terms last weekend with Maddy Boyd as playercoach of its women’s team. Boyd has been involved with the TOPSA program at Peninsula Grammar and is a lightning-quick striker with great goal sense. Somerville’s academy program has been going for four weeks and Pagliarulo has been training with the squad before pre-season gets underway in earnest for the seniors. “Pags” is rumoured to have failed a body fat test which prompted him joining in with the academy squad and he claims he already has lost four kilograms. The shire council has put up fencing at Tyabb Central Reserve and Somerville has bought a food van, portable showers and a 20-seater bus as its gears up for next season. A recent meeting with the state Member for Hastings, Neale Burgess, went well and the main topics of discussion were the currently prohibitive costs for using Somerville Secondary College as a training and playing venue and the prospects of acquiring land on which to develop a permanent facility.

Smart filly salutes for Laurie By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based racehorse trainer, Matt Laurie, topped off Kennedy Oaks day at Flemington on a high as his talented filly, Bleu Roche, saluted in the last event on the card. The three-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock saw the Flemington straight for the first time and scored a narrow but tough victory against her own age and sex in the $200,000 Group Three World Horse Racing Roses Stakes (1100m) on Thursday 8 November. The up-and-coming filly held off a wall of horses with the Clinton McDonald-trained filly, Causeway Girl, and the Lee Curtis-trained Meryl both being beaten by just under a head for second and third, respectively. Trainer Matt Laurie said he’s excited with what lays ahead for his talented filly.

“I thought she was a pretty good horse,” he said. “Her run the other day at Moonee Valley was enormous so I started to get a little bit worried that maybe she’d spent everything 10 days ago, but she’s backed that up with a really great performance. “It was her fourth start in her first prep and she’s now a group winning filly, so we’ve got a lot to look forward to.” When looking at where Bleu Roche would head to next, Laurie hadn’t quite put his finger on an exact race but said it would likely be one of high quality. “Everything is on the card,” he said. “We’re flying.” “She’s obviously a class filly and we’ll be looking at some pretty smart races [with her].”

Riali out to win first Hastings Gift PRIDE Performance sprinter, Nathan Riali, will be out to try and claim the first ever running of the Hastings Gift on Saturday 17 November at Thomas Barclay Oval, Hastings. The Ivanhoe resident who travels down to Seaford and Frankston to train under head coach Matt Carter certainly knows what it takes to win a Gift. Having been competing across the country for the past five years, Riali has won the 2014 Ballarat Gift, the 2014 Northcote Gift, the 2016 Davenport Gift and the 2017 Rye Gift. He even finished second in the iconic Stawell Gift just last year. Riali said he now hopes he can go a long way to winning the $8,000 purse that’s up for grabs in the Men’s Gift. “I’m really excited for it,” he said. “The squad

has put a lot of hard work in behind the scenes to get ready for it.” “Training with Matt Carter has definitely helped. We’ve been training about six times a week in the normal build-up but we’ve started to taper off a bit now so that we’re right to go for the main day.” “It certainly will be a great event and I’m really enjoying it and that’s the main thing, to be loving what you’re doing.” Since joining the Gift’s circuit in 2013, Riali has moved his handicap down from 5.5 metres to 2.5 metres which he believes he’ll be close to running off at this year’s Hastings Gift. Despite having a lower handicap, Riali said he’ll still be in it to win it. “I’m definitely going to give it a good crack,” he said.

Ty races to Western Series victory By Ben Triandafillou UP-AND-COMING junior Motocross rider, Ty Godfrey, has topped off his 2018 season by successfully taking out the Western Series final in Colac on Saturday 27 October. The Tyabb 12-year-old led the series by 50 points with one round to go and finished the final round in third place, providing him with the overall series victory. Ty’s father, Matt Godfrey, said it was great to see his son get around the track and finish the year on a high.

“He finished third for the day, but he didn’t have to finish on top to win overall, he just had to get around the course safely,” Matt said. “He rode pretty smart and did what he had to do to keep the win. He had a minor stack in practise, but he came home safe, so he was pretty happy with himself. “He keeps a fair bit to himself, but he obviously gets a good buzz out of it and that’s the main thing. No matter the result, as long as he’s enjoying it and having fun then all is well.”

Ty finished the series with a 37-point margin over the rest of his competitors. While the season is over, Matt said his son, Ty, will still undoubtably be zipping around their property on his minibike.

Clay target club land national praise

Massive hit: Jane Vella (left), FACTC president Paul Calvi, Laetisha Scanlan, and Charlie Galea celebrate the FACTC’s highly successful Australian awards night. Picture: Supplied.


Frankston Times 13 November 2018

THE FRANKSTON Australia Clay Target Club (FACTC) collected several awards over a highly successful weekend in New South Wales from Friday 2 November to Sunday 4 November. The club won four awards at the 2018 Shooting Australia Awards for Excellence night on Saturday 3 November before also taking home numerous medals from the ISSF Skeet and Trap NSW State Title / Shooting Australia Open. At the awards night, FACTC won the Club of the Year award, the Volunteer of the Year award, the Grassroots Coach of the Year award and the Female High-Performance Athlete of the Year award. The Volunteer of the Year award was won by FACTC secretary Jane Vella, the Grassroots Coach of the Year award was won by Charlie Galea and the Female High-Performance Athlete of the Year award was won by FACTC member Laetisha Scanlan. The awards took into account shooting clubs from all around Australia and also involved all three shooting codes, being shotgun, pistol and rifle. In the shotgun class alone, there were around 300 clubs

eligible for the award. Frankston Australia Clay Target Club secretary Jane Vella said it was an outstanding achievement for the club and its members. “It was a good weekend for us all,” Vella said. “We were nominated for four categories and we were finalists in all of them. We then managed to win them all. “We’ve put a lot of effort into the shooting sports and trying to grow it as a whole because grassroots is where it all starts for all of the professionals.” While in NSW, the FACTC members also found success at the ISSF Skeet and Trap NSW State Title / Shooting Australia Open which were held at the Sydney International Shooting Centre (Cecil Park Gun Club). On top of winning her Female HighPerformance Athlete of the Year award, Commonwealth Games gold medallist Laetisha Scanlan also won gold in the Shooting Australia Open as well as being named the High-Performance Series Winner for Ladies Trap in 2018. Scanlan also won a gold medal in the

mixed team’s event alongside James Willett on the Friday night. Another Commonwealth Games competitor and FACTC member, James Bolding, also competed at the state titles. Bolding won gold in the Shooting Australia Open before also being named the High-Performance Series Winner for Men’s Skeet in 2018. FACTC members, Mat Costa and Keith Ferguson, also competed in the Shooting Australia Open where they finished third and fourth respectively. Keith Ferguson went on to also win his AA Grade in the NSW state titles. The state titles were the last selection event for the early-2019 World Cup events. The Australian National Championships in mid-January held in Brisbane will also be used as selection for the later-2019 World Cup events. To conclude the year, the FACTC will also be hosting the Universal Trench State Titles where 96 competitors from around Australia will be competing. The event kicks off on Friday 23 November and will run until Sunday 25 November.
