Stadium stoush blows up “Council is mindful of the community’s best interests and cannot be held to ransom over these matters,” the mayor said in a statement. The mayor’s statement noted: “The proposed lease arrangement allows for a much lower lease payment than at other like facilities -- $326,000 for six courts in Keilor, $191,000 for six courts in Boroondara, which are also consistent with courts in Casey and Knox”. Basketball association general manager Nathan Jolly says council now expects association members, many of whom are also ratepayers, to repay council $4 million of ratepayers’ money originally pledged by council to the project. The federal government has promised $5.2 million and the state government $2.5 million towards the stadium upgrade. In a letter handed out to families attending the stadium at the weekend, Mr Jolly said the association had been trying to agree to revised lease terms with council since mid-2015. He said council is “comparing apples with pineapples” in its flawed comparison of rent charged by councils elsewhere to other basketball associations since the Frankston association originally paid for the original construction of facilities and is pitching in money to the upgrade which will see the addition of four new courts, bringing the total at the stadium to ten.

Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A BITTER argument over lease terms that endangers a multi-million dollar upgrade to the Frankston Basketball Stadium has erupted publicly while building contractors on site wait to begin work. A meeting behind closed doors last Wednesday (15 March) between council CEO Dennis Hovenden, mayor Cr Brian Cunial, council officers, councillors and Frankston & District Basketball Association representatives failed to reach agreement on new lease terms between council and the association. The association is pitching in $1 million of its members’ money in to a $12.7 million first stage upgrade of the Seaford basketball hub and believes council is now engaged in “a cash grab” by also increasing rent payable at the councilowned land. Council has proposed increasing rent from about $30,000 annually to about $60,000 plus a 6 per cent take of future association revenue above $1 million, adding an estimated $120,000 each year to lease payments (“Stadium upgrade in strife”, The Times 13/3/17). After last week’s meeting, Cr Cunial launched an extraordinary attack on the not-for-profit association alleging the group has “a winner takes all” approach to lease negotiations.

Director resigns, trustees intervene It is not known if this concept will now be pursued. Mr Cunningham, who was formerly deputy director of the Regional Cultural Centre and manager of the Letterkenny Arts Centre in Ireland and Paul Hughes Fine Art gallery in London, succeeded Robert Lindsay as McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park in April 2015. He was unable to be contacted for comment before publication. In 2004, Mr Lindsay said the gallery and sculpture park faced “a funding crisis” following the death of major patron Dame Elisabeth Murdoch who contributed a $400,000 annual grant each year, 40 per cent of the gallery’s then operating costs of $1 million. The McClelland Gallery Trustees are chair Mary Delahunty, deputy chair Susie Hamson, treasurer Hayley Underwood, John Calvert-Jones, Ian Hicks, Frankston Council CEO Dennis Hovenden, Julie Kantor, Patrick Baker, Tom McMahon, Lisa Roet and John Simpson. McClelland Gallery was the site of the bohemian Harry McClelland’s painting studio. His sister, Annie May bequeathed the land and holdings to honour her brother’s memory by establishing the Harry McClelland Art Gallery and Cultural Hall. The gallery opened in 1971. Harry’s studio is still in the grounds. — with Fran Henke

On course: Jackson Ramage and Gerard Felipe enjoyed an opportunity to learn more about Australian’s constitution and how it provides a democratic framework.

Considering the constitution TWO Frankston High School students were among of 120 Victorian Year 11 and 12 students who participated in the 22nd National Schools Constitutional Convention, held at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House in Canberra last week (15-17 March). The boys, Jackson Ramage and Gerard Felipe, were selected to participate in the program, which provides senior students with an opportunity to learn about how Australia’s Constitution provides a democratic framework, and encourages them to take an active interest in the operation of government. The topic of the 2017 Convention was ‘Indigenous Australians and the Constitution’. The students had the opportunity to consider arguments

relating to Indigenous Constitutional recognition, hear from a panel of experts, get involved in group discussions and persuade other delegates of particular approaches. The sessions culminated in a mock referendum to determine the outcome of their deliberations. Jackson said he was grateful for the opportunity, which gave him the opportunity to further consider his political, legal and social future career choices. Gerard said the boys felt they couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to voice their opinions on the issues that affect them as young individuals. “We are, after all, the future of our communities,” he said.

THE director of McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park has resigned and the trustees of McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park will meet artists previously told to vacate premises to review leases at Studio Park, Langwarrin. Gallery director John Cunningham met representatives of artists’ guilds in February to advise the guilds that their leases would not be renewed in June (“Artists left without studios”, The Times 6/3/17). Gallery deputy director Lyn Johnson confirmed director John Cunningham’s exit. “The trustees are currently reviewing the matter of the tenancy of the guilds and this was communication to the guilds last week,” Ms Johnson said in a statement on Friday. The deputy director did give any reason for Mr Cunningham’s resignation. Artists, lapidarists, spinners, weavers and woodturners have been leasing premises for about $2000 a year per guild at the park’s grounds since the 1970s. Community studios were introduced by the founding trustees of the gallery. Mr Cunningham last year unveiled plans to introduce “glamping” — an upmarket version of camping — to the site.

Police focus on crime reduction, says chief Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au SOUTHERN Metro Region divisional commander Superintendent Glenn Weir last week downplayed a rise in crime in October-December last year. Crime Statistics Agency data released on Thursday painted a bleak picture: aggravated burglaries in Frankston surged 49 per cent in the past year – from 96 to 143, while motor vehicle theft was up 38.5 per cent – from 493 to 682. “We don’t deal with old data,” he said. “These statistics are three months out of date.” Theft from motor vehicles -- described by local police as “volume crime” because of its prevalence -- was up 10.6

per cent, from 1497 to 1655. “Over the past 18 weeks, we have overseen reductions in crime, which have been tracking down since the end of November,” Supt Weir said. He said the crime agency’s statistics, covering the 12 months to the end of December, had included a “bad October and November” in local crime which had “fallen since then”. “We still have a lot of concerns regarding high-end crime, such as aggravated burglaries and home invasions, but there have been consistent falls since the end of November,” he said. “It’s difficult for us. We try to focus on the real issues and on turning things around and we are confident that those reductions [in crime] will be repeated

across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.” Skye had one of the largest increases in aggravated burglaries in the state in the final quarter of last year. There were 273 violent break-ins – up from 125 in 2015. The only other postcode to record a bigger increase was Ballarat. Other statistics showed: n Frankston: Crimes against the person 2311 – up 12.5 per cent; property and deception 8983 – up 13.8 per cent; drug offences 1225 – up 13.5 per cent; public order and security 1428 – up 4.3 per cent; justice procedures 3007 – up 24.2 per cent; other 25 – down 34 per cent. n Mornington Peninsula: Crimes against the person 1723 – up 12.5 per cent; property and deception 6453

– up 5.6 per cent; drug offences 695 – up 0.4 per cent; public order and security 1223 – up 6.3 per cent; justice procedures 1943 – up 27.5 per cent; other 31 – down 11.4 per cent. In Frankston assaults were up 17 per cent; robbery up 30 per cent; dangerous acts endangering a person up 38 per cent; arson was up 44 per cent; deception 20 per cent; cultivating and manufacturing drugs 43 per cent; drug use and possession 22 per cent; public nuisance offences up 82 per cent. On the Mornington Peninsula, sexual offences were up 60 per cent; robbery 46 per cent; arson up 34 per cent; burglaries up 29 per cent; cultivating and manufacturing drugs 39 per cent; public nuisance offences up 57 per cent.

Libs rail against ‘arrogant’ sky rail Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au BUSINESS deals to build sky rail along sections of the Frankston line won’t be “torn up” but any incoming Coalition state government in Victoria will look again at any level crossing removal not finished and put rail lines under road. Liberal opposition leader Matthew Guy visited Carrum on Tuesday (14 March) — where the Labor state government confirmed elevated rail will be built — to accuse the government of “playing politics” with rail projects. “I believe a new government can and should negotiate a new contract and put those level crossings underground as they were always meant to be,” Mr Guy said. “Some communities get sky rail, some communities get a trench. And it depends in some areas on the seat margin, who’s talked loudest and on internal Labor politics in relation to where a member sits in relation to a friendship with the Premier. “It’s just not the way to build infrastructure. Do it properly, do it consist-

ently and do it right from the start.” The Level Crossing Removal Authority confirmed last week that a 900-metre long eight-metre high “rail bridge” will be built over McLeod Rd and level crossings at Station St, Eel Race Rd and Mascot Ave will be removed. Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny welcomed the decision alongside a plan to move train stabling from Carrum along the Frankston line to Kananook. “Not only will we remove these level crossings – we will turn the ugly sta-

bling yard in to a new Carrum village that will transform our community forever,” she said in a statement last week. Mr Guy accused the government of being “pig headed” and “arrogant” in insisting elevated rail must be built in Carrum. “If it’s about the water table, then we would never have built CityLink, it goes 10-15 metres below the Yarra river.” The opposition leader said he disagreed with moving stabling to

Kananook. The government announced last week seven properties — most with businesses on site — will be compulsorily acquired in the Wells Rd, Seaford area to accommodate the Kananook stabling. “I’m certainly not in the business of tearing up contracts but there is a broader discussion about Frankston station as to whether that terminus is the right spot for the end of the line,” Mr Guy said. “There seems to be a continual ‘band aiding’ of

the Frankston train station.” He favoured extending the electric rail line and building stabling at Baxter or Leawarra. Eleven level crossings will now be removed along the Frankston line — two more than originally planned — from Cheltenham to Frankston as part of the state government’s pledge to separate road from rail at level crossings across Victoria. Construction works will mostly begin next year and train commuters will suffer short-term disruptions to train services. Metro Trains will run buses alongside sections of the Frankston line affected by level crossing removals.

members of the FDBA board of management is unwarranted and unprofessional.” A council statement from Cr Cunial in January announced Devco Project & Construction Management had been awarded a contract to upgrade the basketball stadium. Mr Hovenden has confirmed council has ordered Devco to stop works on site since a lease agreement has not been agreed. Devco did not return calls and emails last week asking questions about the contract for the project. Cr Cunial said late on Friday that the building contract has not been signed. Work sheds and containers have been installed on site. “Council appointed the preferred contractor and advised them that they have been selected to undertake the works, however a contract has not yet been signed,” Cr Cunial said in a statement.

He said the association is “trying to stop council double dipping from ratepayers via a blatant cash grab of members’ money”. “The only party holding the other to ransom is council who have tried to bully the FDBA with veiled threats that the project will fall over if the association does not sign its unsuitable lease,” Mr Jolly said in the letter. “Council have tried every trick in the book to box the FDBA board of management into signing unfavourable lease terms including emailing the FDBA board of management a draft letter addressed to the project’s builder outlining the project will be cancelled due to the FDBA not agreeing to a ‘commercial lease’ of building. “The stress this type of behavior has had on

Laser idea to deter ducks Liz Bell liz@baysidenews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula horticulturalist Lisa Brassington knows that crops and ducks sometimes don’t mix, but the crafty inventor has come up with a simple solution to the problem that leaves both unharmed. Ms Brassington, who works at Peninsula Fresh Organics in Baxter, has spent the past three years watching ducks shift from foraging for insects to organic leafy green produce as they take advantage of what she calls “the best buffet in Baxter”. Wanting a solution that would save crops without hurting the ducks, she combined her education in rural planning and physics with her love of farming to come up with an idea using laser technology. Ms Brassington is a finalist in the RIRDC Victorian rural women’s award for her project – Duck: stirred not shredded - which uses information she gained from European and North American farmers who use

laser bird repellent systems. After studying data on weather and climate observations, citizen science counts of bird numbers, moon cycle information and farmer feedback, Ms Brassington came up with a system to model bird and bat behaviour and

combine this information with the technology. She said all other efforts to defeat the hungry ducks were unmanageable, and current reactive methods of dealing with them, such as random loud sounds and decorative scare-

crows, were ineffective. Since the announcement of her entry, Ms Brassington has had interest from three universities and been able to help farmers work together towards a trial. The next step, she said, would be

to bring universities, the Bureau of Meteorology, Bird Life Australia and market gardeners together to workshop the idea and come up with concrete plans she can take to HortConnections 2017 in Adelaide in May.

DON’T SUFFER FROM Music club widens reach ONE of the Mornington Peninsula’s oldest music makers, the Frankston Peninsula Folk Club, is moving with the times and hoping to broaden its appeal to a younger demographic. The club offers a way for professional and amateur musicians to perform and jam and fosters musical development through workshops and training sessions. Club spokeswoman Julie Meaden said the club planned to introduce a youth award next year to draw more young and aspiring musicians to the club. She said folk clubs all over the country were widening their audiences and memberships with more modern, funky interpretations of folk and acoustic music, and were no longer strictly the domain of flannel-wearing fiddle players. While the club is still true to its mission of providing entertainment and contributing to the community “through the folk genre”, Ms Meaden said the club provided opportunities for people of all ages and interests to learn music, play music and enjoy music. “We provide a much-needed platform for not only featured professional and semi-professional musicians, but also a vast pool of amateur performers who just love to ‘do their stuff’.” The club was formed 1984 with an aim to promote original acoustic music and poetry. President Max Amos said the club offered anyone interested in music an opportunity to get involved.

Homeless man violently robbed A HOMELESS man was assaulted and robbed at the Frankston boat launching ramp car park, 10.30pm, Friday 8 March. Police said a group of Pacific Islander youths approached the 34-year-old and demanded money. When he said he had none they allegedly assaulted him and took what few belongings he had, including his backpack and sleeping bag. The man suffered bumps and bruises. A 14-year-old Mornington youth was interviewed by police and is expected to be charged on summons to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Police van rammed at service station THE Carrum Downs police van was rammed by a Ford sedan at the Woolworths service station, corner Skye Rd and McClelland Dr, Frankston North, last week. The low-impact collision caused front end damage. Officers had stopped to check when they saw the white car with false plates just after midnight, Thursday 16 March. The car was then reversed into the police van and then driven west along Skye Rd and north along Peninsula Link. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Artists rally to save iconic site Liz Bell liz@baysidenews.com.au PRESSURE is mounting to stop demolition of the iconic building that once housed Manyung Gallery in Mt Eliza. More than 400 people signed a petition in just three days to prevent the loss of the building. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has approved plans to turn the Nepean Highway site into a childcare centre, but demolition orders were put on hold until 31 March after the owner of neighbouring Licciardo’s Bar and Grill, Rob Licciardo, took the matter to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Archaeologist and Mt Eliza resident, Peter Jupp, who organised the petition, said the building should be recognised for its historical and architectural significance, and he planned to approach Heritage Victoria to attempt to have the building heritage listed. Mr Jupp said many artists would join a demonstration to save the building at 2pm on Sunday (26 March). “This is an iconic building because of its architectural importance and its association to the Montsalvat era, but it has also been a very important part of the artistic development of the peninsula, with many, many artists having strong connections to the gallery,” he said. “If you want to build something you’re required to put up notices and people can make submissions, but it seems there’s no similar public consultation required when it comes to demolition.”

Gallery call: Artist Terrence Hadler wants Manyung Gallery, Mt Eliza, preserved in recognition of its role in fostering the development of artists on the Mornington Peninsula. Picture: Yanni

Mr Jupp said the support from the public had been overwhelming, with hundreds of peninsula residents and visitors reconnecting to the building and its importance as a part of the peninsula’s history. Peninsula artist Terry Hadler, artistin-residence for more than 14 years when Manyung Gallery was a tenant

in the building, says it was purposebuilt as a gallery in the 1960s and should be recognised for its importance in fostering and supporting artists. “I have taught hundreds of artists from the site and it’s been an important part of the area’s artistic history,” he said.

Mr Hadler said the building itself, with its distinctive dome turret, beautiful stained glass by peninsula artists Ted Moran, and courtyard with feature brickwork, was outstanding, and a “desired exhibiting location” for artists around Victoria for many years. Mornington Peninsula Shire did not respond to requests for comment.

THIS year’s six-week team challenge at Mt Eliza Bowls Club attracted 26 teams, up from 10 when the competition began last year. Coordinator Gordon Sanders said residents had embraced the idea of competing in 45-minute games, which allowed friends and families to enjoy the social and competitive side of the game, even with little former experience. He said the club had recently installed two synthetic greens with lights, and started the challenge to recruit players and make the most of the warmer days and evenings while they lasted. “We got 26 teams this year, which meant more than 100 non-bowlers filling our greens every Tuesday night.”

But with team members being allowed to change each week, the total number involved exceeded 150. Mr Sanders said last Tuesday was the final night of the event, with the team on top of the leader board getting the “dubious” honour of having their name added to the trophy – a large porcelain pelican nesting on a bowl and with a bowls jack in its mouth, now on show at Mt Eliza Bendigo Bank. He said many of the competitors had developed good skills and were now asking “what are we going to do on Tuesday nights after next week?” Liz Bell


Owners defend designs Liz Bell liz@baysidenews.com.au HOMEOWNERS in Mt Eliza’s prestigious Ranelagh Estate have defended their rights to embrace modern architecture in the wake of claims that new developments are changing the character of the 1920s “garden estate”. Their claims come in the wake of protests from a group opposed to what it calls “inappropriate” development (“Bid to stunt growth of ‘garden estate’”, The Times 6/3/17). The Ranelagh Residents Association and several other property owners have appealed to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) against a planning application for a two-storey house in Rendlesham Av. The association, led by architect Victoria Grounds, is trying to retain what is says is the estate’s unique neighbourhood character. The estate was designed in the 1920s by renowned architect Walter Burley Griffin and is known for its low density housing and development overlays that protect the parks and gardens and nature strips. Michael Poulter, whose planned Rendlesham Av house is the subject of the VCAT appeal, said the association had no right to “deprive a hard-working, tax-paying family” of their dream. Mr Poulter said he commended the association for its work on keeping units out of the area, but believes “Victoria Grounds is completely out of touch on this one”. “The reality is that change is upon us all the time,” he said. Mr Poulter established the Bluestone Lane Vineyard in Balnarring 20 years ago and sold up to buy the Rendlesham Av double block two years ago. He and his wife hope to build their retirement house on the site and another house for their daughter and her autistic child, who requires full-time home care. He said the two-storey house he planned to build was not a “monstrosity” and would retain significant garden space in keeping with the “garden suburb”

ideals. He said the planned building’s street height was 6.400 mm less than many of the neighbouring two-storey houses. The association has lodged the appeal on the grounds that the development will results in “visual bulk”, is contrary to neighbourhood character, and contradicts the shire’s own planning scheme framework. The owner of another house under construction which was the subject of an objection to council by the association, has also defended property owners’ rights to build within the limits of their legal obligations. The man, who preferred not to be named, said he had gone through all necessary planning requirements in order to build his family home. “Ms Grounds of all people should acknowledge that design and people’s preferences change in time,” he said. He said his new dwelling reduced the site coverage from the previous “termite ridden” dwelling that was on the property, and adhered to all planning overlays. While the council’s design and development protection overlay (DDO3) requires that “proper regard” is given to established streetscapes, and development patterns and be “responsive to the environment, site conditions and character of coastal villages”, the heritage significance of the estate was limited to the road reserve and nature strips. The house owner said insinuations that planning overlays were being ignored or watered down incorrectly suggested that he had done something wrong. “We went through the planning process as required by council and were made to undertake various amendments as a result of objections by the Ranelagh Residents Association,” he said. He said development was helping to improve the area, as all new dwellings were required to plant native vegetation, preferably indigenous, as part of the landscape plans. Ms Grounds said the fault lies with the council’s approval of plans that contravened conditions of the development overlay. “What is the point of having this overlay if it is ignored?”.

Footpath delay ‘dangerous’ A FORMER mayor of Frankston has become frustrated with a lack of council urgency to build a footpath in Frankston South at a “dangerous blind corner” for pedestrians. Ex-councillor Darrel Taylor says residents, council officers and councillors agreed in July last year that a footpath between Fenton Crescent and Nepean Highway was needed due to safety concerns. “There have been numerous near misses as pedestrians are forced to walk on the road near a blind corner,” Mr Taylor said. “I would rather council acted now instead of waiting until someone is seriously injured or killed.” The ex-mayor said he had spent several months chasing council for an explanation of why it is taking so long

to build a footpath at the corner. He raised the footpath delay publicly with council officers at January’s council meeting. Current mayor Cr Brian Cunial said council has been looking at ways to build the footpath but admitted its construction could still be months away nearly a year after safety concerns were flagged at the blind corner. “Council officers have been investigating alternative options for constructing a footpath along Liddesdale Avenue from Fenton St to the Nepean Highway,” Cr Cunial said in a statement. “A report on the options will be presented to councillors at the May council meeting for consideration.” Neil Walker

Hastings the most costly port option Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au THE latest “discussion paper” released by Infrastructure Victoria estimates building a container port at Hastings will cost more than double that of developing a new port at Bay West, inside Port Phillip. Using scenarios based on ships capable of carrying either 14,000 TEU (based on 20 foot long containers) or 18,500 TEU, the paper puts the cost of developing Hastings to handle nine million TEU a year brought in by the smaller vessels at $12.8 billion; building Bay West for the same number of containers is $6.14 billion. When the larger ships are taken into account, costs at Hastings go to $12.9 billion as opposed to $6.4 billion at Bay West. Taken to their ultimate third stage of development, a container port at Bay West would require close to 30 million cubic metres of dredging and 47 million cubic metres for Hastings. The Bay West proposal near Werribee involves using dredged material to build an “island”. Material dredged from Western Port would have to be dumped 50 kilometres offshore in Bass Strait, with 18 million cubic metres of suitable sand then being brought back from the same area for reclamation works. The 30 kilometres of shipping channels into Western Port will need 2.6 million cubic metres of dredging to accommodate the larger ships (18,500 TEU), but the actual port area will require a further 21.6 million cubic

metres of dredging. The Bay West/Hastings comparison is designed to help the state government choose one of the two sites for the state’s next container port. Infrastructure Victoria states that while it might be “technically possible” to increase capacity at the Port of Melbourne “by four or five times” it is also working towards finding a “tipping point” as to “when it may be more practical to create additional port capacity at a second container port”. As it edges closer to recommending either Hastings or Bay West as the site for a second container port, Infrastructure Victoria has ruled out Geelong or Portland. With a required lead-in time of 15 years for planning and construction of a new port, the government agency is set to make its preferences known to the state government in May. The paper released earlier this month by Infrastructure Victoria, states that modelling has shown that up until 2066 there will be no problems handling the number of ships expected to pass through The Heads into Port Phillip. “If growth in ship numbers were to continue as forecast then the ultimate capacity constraint would not be reached until sometime in the mid2100s,” the discussion paper states. It cautions that if the largest container ships are to use Port Phillip, the Great Ship Channel will need to be widened from its present 245 metres to 425 metres; the entrance to Western Port would need “some realignment”.

INFRASTRUCTURE Victoria’s latest discussion paper suggests - subject to further investigation - that ships carrying vehicles to the Port of Melbourne and those servicing Tasmania could eventually use ports either at Geelong or Hastings.

Infrastructure Victoria CEO Michel Masson said the body of evidence is the result of many months of technical investigations and engagement with stakeholders and local communities. “We have used existing studies, undertaken new technical investigations and consulted with key stakeholders and local communities over the past six months to develop this evidence base on when we might need a new port, and where it should

be located,” he said. “This is not our advice to the government, it is the information, data and analysis we have collected to date.” Westernport Peninsula Protection Council secretary Karri Giles said the amount of dredging needed for a container port at Hastings was “more than double Port Phillip Bay’s infamous channel deepening”. Western Port would be “permanently muddy”.

“Infrastructure Victoria thinks the main reason to build a second container port is in case retailers want to bring in goods in the world’s second biggest ships. Most right thinking people here would rather the ships fit the port than build a whole new port to take bigger ships,” Ms Giles said. The discussion paper and technical reports are at yoursay.infrastructurevictoria.com.au/ports

A Mornington Cup for the ages A FIELD of Australia’s best stayers will have to fend off the challenge of an international raider for the first time in the 70th year of the running of the $300,000 Ladbrokes Mornington Cup. The world’s largest racing operation, Godolphin, headed up UK-based trainer Charlie Appleby, has brought a three-horse contingent to Australia this autumn, with six-year-old entire The Gold Trail (pictured) set to contest the 2400m Mornington Cup on March 25 in the hope of gaining a ballot free run in the prestigious BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) later this year. The fact that Appleby, who cleaned up in last year’s Spring Racing Carnival with five winner, has chosen the Mornington Cup as the rising star’s international autumn target speaks volumes for the standing of the race. On his latest outing, The Gold Trail defeated fellow Godolphin galloper Prize Money over 2400m at Meydan in the UAE while Prize Money in turn has since defeated Postponed, a Group 1 champion and one of Europe’s best middle distance runners, confirming the significance of The Gold Trail’s victory. “[The] Gold Trail has got better physically year on year and we were very impressed with what he did in his previous two starts,” Appleby said

over the phone from the UK. “You can’t beat taking an older horse down to Australia with that experience under their belt.” “The ground will hopefully be quick which will suit this horse

because he likes quick ground. I think that he’ll be useful over there. Godolphin however are not the only ones chasing ballot exemption granted to the Mornington Cup victor for this year’s Group 1 BMW

Caulfield Cup, with two-time Mornington Cup runner-up Big Memory looking to go one better this year. Tony McEvoy’s iron gelding has been denied victory by less than a length in the two most recent editions

of the race, but the in-form trainer believes that could be an advantage this time around. “My horse is very effective at that track, it’s very much a horses for courses track,” McEvoy said. “I can guarantee that those international horses have never raced on a track as tight as this one. “We can only prepare our horses as best we can. I’m very happy to be back for a third crack at this race.” The field is also expected to include the Ladbrokes Mornington Cup Prelude quinella of Boom Time and Goldstream. Boom Time recently finished sixth in the $1.5 million Australia Cup (2000m), while Goldstream will likely join stablemate Cadillac Mountain as Champion trainer Darren Weir’s key Cup chances. Robert Hickmott’s Assign, who defeated Big Memory to claim the Herbert Power Stakes in October, is also a likely starter. The $120,000 Listed Ladbrokes Hareeba Stakes (1200m) will support Mornington’s richest race on the program while punters will also be treated to a host of other premium races including the Mornington Jeep & Nissan Guineas (1600m), Martin Collins Fibretrack Sires for two-yearolds (1500m) and the Final of the Mitavite Challenge (1600m).

WHAT’S NEW...

Red Hill Show - all for fun, and fun for all SATURDAY, March 11, the show grounds were transformed into a colourful, appetizing and entertaining spectacle for the whole family. The Mornington Peninsula was on show! Initial estimation suggests that around 7,500 people attended the 89th Red Hill Show, many of those making the trip from Melbourne and further afield. Clear skies and perfect weather set the scenes for the ideal day out. Our community was the focus of this year’s celebration with a record number of local groups and exhibitors participating.

The skilled artisans of the McClelland Spinners & Weavers and Woodturners Guild educated and inspired the crowd. St Georges Anglican Church and the Red Hill Scouts served delicious Devonshire teas. The Red Hill Tennis Club, Main Ridge Bowls & Petanque, the CFA and Baluk Arts ran free activities and creative workshops. We had a record number of entries from the schools and scout groups this year from Flinders Christian, Dromana Secondary, Chiro Christian and Elizabeth Murdoch Colleges to the Tyabb

Scouts just to name a few. Special congratulations to the miniature goats of Padua College on their selection as Best in The Grand Parade by our Mayor Cr Bev Colomb. The woodchop grandstands were packed to the rafters as Blake Meyer took out the Victorian 325ml Tree Event Championship. For the second year in a row, Cooper, the Border Collie cross took out the Dog High Scramble in the record jump of 3.05m. The sound stage was a hit this year with the African drumming workshop, the

You Little Beauty! LITTLE Beauty In The Park is the newest edition to the Untold Events Co calendar. Brought to you by the founders of the popular Emu Plains Market and Stringybark Cinema, this new market will see the team cross the Peninsula to set up a second home in the gorgeous surrounds of Beauty Park, Frankston. “We have been looking for a sister site for over two years and have finally found a space that conveys who we are and what our markets are all about,” says organiser Vanessa Johnson. It’s an exciting next step for Vanessa and husband Joel’s newly formed events company. Little Beauty will showcase 160 of Melbourne’s

very best stallholders hand-picked for their uniqueness, creativity and ethos. It will also feature a children’s precinct, live music, food trucks, fresh produce and mouthwatering gourmet food. Little Beauty will be on show on March 25 and April 22, with free entry and parking. For more details, check out the new website www. littlebeautymarket.com.au LITTLE BEAUTY IN THE PARK A: Beauty Park, High St, Frankston T: 5983 1935 W: www.littlebeautymarket.com.au

grooves of The Jackson Four and Rob Papp & Blueshead setting the tones. Max Allen captivated the crowd on the MPP sponsored stage during his Cider Masterclass. The cider show finished with 53 cider entries from across Australia with Kangaroo Island Ciders taking out the Best Apple Cider in Show and Harcourt Perry & Cider Makers Best Perry in Show. Richard Cornish from Gourmet Traveler entertained the audience throughout the day with a host of judges and cooking demos.

On behalf of the Red Hill Agricultural & Horticultural Society, we would like to thank our incredible team of volunteers who coordinate this event and our wonderful sponsors. The significant donations of fresh produce and gifts we receive from local producers are passed on to our prize-winning exhibitors and celebrity chefs. This is a community event that we can all be proud of. See you all the same time next year.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

An open letter to the Tyabb Junior Football Club By Stuart McCullough I SHOULD have said something sooner. The enormity of the occasion was such that to have raised my concerns at the time would have seemed like nitpicking. Disrespectful, even. But the passage of years has lent a certain perspective. Things that were once unknowable have come in to sharp focus. It’s that clarity that leads me to write to you now, as I ask you to consider righting the most egregious of wrongs. You may not recall, but I played several seasons with the Tyabb Junior Football Club. Mostly I remember training two nights a week under the spotlights and heading off on Sunday mornings to play. We were always cold. Often we lost. There were matches when the margin of our defeat was so great that it resembled a phone number. Very occasionally, we tasted victory and it was even sweeter than the quarter time oranges. That these victories were the result of a misunderstanding on the part of the other team as to the location of the venue resulting in a forfeit mattered little. A win is a win. So long as they get your name right, that is. I took it all very seriously, even if my main skills were falling over and kicking into the man on the mark. I was, I feel, something of a specialist in this respect. However unorthodox my approach, I must have been doing something right because I was bestowed with the ‘Team Manager’s’ award on no fewer than four occasions. Back then I thought these were the first tentative steps towards even greater sporting glory: a Brownlow, a gold medal, perhaps my own line of sportswear. None of it came to pass. With the benefit of

time, I now know that my time playing for Tyabb is where I peaked. It has been, truth be told, downhill ever since. I know what you’re thinking. The ‘Team Manager’s’ Award is a fair way

off ‘Best and Fairest’. It’s the trophy considered by many, not least me, as the ‘thanks for coming anyway’ award. That I won this award on four occasions shows just how deeply the club

appreciated my willingness to make up the numbers despite a complete absence of any discernable talent for the game. Perhaps it was the nature of the honour itself that largely accounts for the resulting atrocity. The Club’s Best and Fairest/ Pie Night was always a big occasion. The first time I went, I recall feeling slightly awkward not just because of the uncertainty inherent in a gala event of this kind but also as the only nine year old in attendance to have worn a tuxedo. The ‘Team Manager’s’ Award came up early in the evening. Much as the award for ‘Best Make-Up: Eyeliner in a Foreign Film starring a Camel named Dennis’ is presented at the Oscars before the famous people have had a chance to plant their backsides in their seats, my name was announced as a crowd milled around the pie-warmer. Stumbling towards the stage, it’s a miracle that I didn’t resort to the skill that had served me so well throughout the home and away season and immediately fall over. I didn’t have a speech prepared. My decision to try and improvise a short poem cast a pall of silence over the crowd. Amidst the fug of awkwardness that followed, I failed to notice something of catastrophic significance. Had I not been so desperate to get off stage and resume my seat, I would have spotted that the ‘Team Manager’s’ trophy had been award to ‘Stewart’ rather than ‘Stuart’. It’s the kind of error that makes the whole ‘Moonlight versus La La Land’ shemozzle look like little more than a minor clerical error. It’s hard to tell someone that you value their contribution to the team – no matter how flawed

or prone to being overcome by gravity that contribution may be – if you don’t even know their name. The next time I won the award, the trophy was engraved with ‘S. McCullough’. I can respect that the organization decided to play it safe, but it still suggests some uncertainty as to how my name was spelled. The only way it could have been worse is if the award simply read ‘Give it to the guy that falls over all the time’. The third time I won, it should have been clear that something truly magnificent was occurring. It’s rare that someone can receive what is ostensibly an encouragement award several years in a row. That’s like winning ‘Best New Artist’ at the Grammys three times running. It’s simply unheard of. But despite this, the award was again given to ‘Stewart’. The fourth and final trophy again played it safe with ‘S. McCullough’. As a result, it means exactly half the trophies I’ve ever won, have the wrong on the name on them. I’d like to think it’s never too late. The Club can still right this most extreme of wrongs, by re-awarding the Team Manager’s trophies for 1982 and 1984 to the right person. It will be just like that Brownlow ceremony except in Tyabb and there will be pies. For my part, I’ll be gracious; avoiding a panicinspired impromptu poetry slam and have something resembling a speech at the ready. It’s time to set the record straight. I look forward to your earliest reply. Sincerely yours, Stewart Stuart McCullough P.S. Go Yabbies. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

WALK THE ROAD TOGETHER WITH TOMMY FLEMING The voice of Ireland is back. With over 6 million Youtube hits and 3 million+ album sales worldwide, a starring role in the critically acclaimed Irish musical Paddy, and the imminent release of his 14th album, there’s no slowing TOMMY FLEMING down as he sets forth to mark his long-awaited return to tour Australia. Coinciding with the release of Tommy’s new album, Walk The Road Together (released April 7 through ABC Music), the Irish singer/songwriter & actor will perform a run of shows down the East Coast through April/May. Renowned for his soaring vocals, heartfelt lyrics and captivating live performances, Fleming’s own take on Traditional Irish, Folk & Contemporary music has seen him become one of Ireland’s

biggest selling artists. Tommy’s previous three visits have seen him perform sell-out shows around the country (including Melbourne’s Hamer Hall & Sydney’s State Theatre with Elaine Paige), and he’s looking forward to performing for Australian audiences once more - “I always love coming back to Australia. I have long regarded Australia as a second home, I have performed on many stages around the world but stepping on stage for an Australian audience is always special, there’s an honesty and earthiness to the Australian audience that you don’t find anywhere else in the World.” Don’t miss Tommy Fleming at Frankston Arts Centre on Thursday 4th May. Tickets at www. thefac.com.au or call 03 9784 1060.

Big batting Baxter: Baxter’s 272 runs looks like an impossible task for Mt Eliza. Picture: Rab Siddhi

Baxter can taste flag glory PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully BAXTER are just two wickets away from MPCA Provincial premiership glory against Mt Eliza. The Mounties were still 100 runs short of the Baxter total of 272 at stumps on Sunday. They will head back to Tyabb this Saturday in the hope that Tim Clark (37no) will carry them to the promise land. It is highly unlikely though. Baxter are on the verge of winning their fourth flag in less than 10 years – a sensational performance from the club.

On Saturday night at the end of the first day, Baxter had left themselves in a commanding position, batting for the entire day and finishing at 6/223. Dale Irving was set at the crease, unbeaten on 35 after hitting four boundaries and two sixes, while Ben Brittain was still yet to get off the mark. On Sunday, Irving went on to make 47 and Brittain contributed 25, helping Baxter to a strong total. Earlier on day one, openers Joe Rule and skipper Daniel Warwick set up the win for Baxter in the opening session.

Despite having 113 overs to play with, Baxter came out with intent and attacked the Mt Eliza bowlers. Warwick went after the bowling and the pair put on a 98-run opening partnership with Warwick the first wicket to fall for 57 of 91 balls in the 29th over. Chris Brittain then came to the crease and was more than content to take a back seat to Rule, who opened the shoulders and started to let fly. Baxter went to tea on the opening day at 1/150 with Rule not out 78 off 104 balls. However, Rule was caught

behind off Justin Grant off the first ball after the tea break. From that point, Mt Eliza were able to slow down the scoring and pick up some key wickets to give themselves a chance at the end of the first day. Despite not doing a lot of training through the week due to injury, Shaun Knott still bowled 22 overs and finished the first day with 1/47. He finished with 1/58 from 30 overs. Nick Baron was the pick of the bowlers, however, snatching 3/75 from 30-plus overs, while Justin Grant snared 3/48.

The Mounties needed to occupy the crease for 45 minutes before tea on the second day. They couldn’t afford to lose a wicket. However, Dale Irving snared 2/5 from his first six overs and Ben Brittain picked up 1/4 to have the Mounties 3/22 at tea. When Justin Grand and Tim Strickland went, it was 5/81 from 23 overs. Lyle House (40) and Russell Fulton (20) offered some nice resistance and Shaun Knott contributed 25, while Clarke was unbeaten on 37 at stumps.

Parkers in strong position in District DISTRICT

By IT Gully DELACOMBE Park are in a winning strong position in the MPCA District premiership against Red Hill. The Hillmen, the best team in the competition all season, still need more than 230 runs with just seven wickets in hand against the Parkers in the final day of the match at Graydens Rd this

PAGE 28

Frankston Times

Saturday. With skipper Simon Dart still unbeaten at the crease, one wouldn’t be wise to write off the Hillmen just yet. However, there is no doubt that the parkers are in the box seat after Joel Malcolm finished with an unbeaten 104 and Jon Guthrie hit 94. The Parkers finished their allotted 113 overs on 8/307. Delacombe Park left themselves in

20 March 2017

a very strong position at the end of the first day’s play. Nick Christides opened the batting with Guthrie and in typical fashion, he dominated the Red Hill bowling attack from the get-go. The Parkers got away to a flier with Christides hitting 42 of the first 53 runs scored, eventually being caught on the boundary line for 42 after crunching five fours and a six.

Matt Van Wijk played a good support role to Guthrie before being caught behind off of the bowling of Glenn Collett for 13. This brought Joel Malcolm to the crease and between he and Guthrie, they took the score along to 2/156 at the end of the days’ play. Malcolm, who scored an unbeaten 81 in the semi-final against Main Ridge, was again unbeaten at the close

of the first day on 31, while Guthrie was not out 59. They added a further 75 and 35 runs each respectively. Brent Martin bowled 25 overs on the first day for a return of 14 maidens and figures of 1/24. Collett bowled 19 overs for a return of 1/43. Jamie McCall picked up three wickets for the Hillmen on Sunday.

Blues put YCW to the sword in grand final SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully HASTINGS has won the last ever MPCA Sub District Grand Final, humiliating Frankston YCW by more than 100 runs. And for the township of Hastings, it was more about adding a cricket pennant to the footy pennant it won last season. The Blues bowled out the Stonecats for just 99 on Sunday after posting a score of 214.

The game was looking to be an intriguing battle at the end of the first day’s play on Saturday night. In a see-sawing opening day which saw both sides have their purple patches, Hastings were 7/189 at the close of play. The Blues added a further 25 runs in 12 overs on Sunday at the resumption of play before being all out for 214. Nathan Hunt resumed at 34 on day two for the Blues and finished with 44. After being in some real trouble at 2/16 early on day one after winning

the toss and batting first, Hastings’ Jake Hewitt and skipper Rob Hearn were able to stem the tide for the Blues and get the game back on their terms. As it turned out, it proved to be a match winning partnership. At tea, after 44 overs the Blues were looking in control at 2/113 with Hearn on 58 and Hewitt on 42. However, after a 99-run partnership, Hearn was out for 60. Luke Hewitt became Brett Hudgson’s second wicket two runs later and when Jake Hewitt was run-out for 50,

the Blues were in a spot of bother at 5/134. Jake Hewitt was the second run out of the innings after Mitchel Floyd was run out for one with the score on 16. By the end of the first day’s play, Hudgson had taken four wickets for the Stonecats. His on the spot bowling made things happen and he was able to get his side back into the contest. YCW skipper Andrew Kitson finished with 3/45 while Hudgson finished with 4/23. While the Blues’ score wasn’t huge,

it was still 200-plus on the board that needed to be chased down. By 3pm on Sunday, the Stonecats were reeling with the dangerous Lai Leaunoa out for two and Kip Mulvogue, Joe Gotts and Jason Bedford back in the sheds. At tea the score was 4/46. Things didn’t improve a lot for the Stonecats, Hastings’ Isuru Dias claiming 5/38 as his side rolled the opposition for less than 100. What a year for Jake and Luke Hewitt – a cricket premiership to follow and footy premiership in September.

Comets v Mornington, Baxter v Rosebud Heart SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie CHAMPIONSHIP aspirants Casey Comets and Mornington slug it out on Friday night at Comets Stadium in a blockbuster opening to the 2017 league season. Both sides have made significant changes to their squads during the offseason and the visitors have boosted their chances of a State 1 South-East title threepeat by improving both the quality and depth of their personnel. Both camps are keen to get off to a flyer in a season where the championship winner is offered a place in the second tier of the elite NPL competition for 2018. At the heart of Mornington’s defence is the much lauded duo of Simon Webster and Steve Elliott and their Casey counterparts are Nemanja Lojanica and former Langwarrin captain Alex van Heerwarden, another formidable combination. The transfer coup of the season has been Ryan Paczkowski’s return to Dallas Brooks Park after a successful stint with NPL heavyweight Bentleigh Greens and “Patch” and van Heerwarden have a history so you can expect fireworks from their match-up. Mornington import Matthew Wade has returned to England to attend a wedding but is expected to return for the club’s round two league clash. Comets are hosting a pre-game function at 7pm featuring coaches and players from both teams and a special guest speaker. Tickets are $35 each and include finger food, beer, wine, soft drink and game entry. Email caseyevents@ outlook.com to make a booking. Once the dust settles at Comets Stadium the next day features another derby dustup when Baxter hosts Rosebud Heart in a much anticipated start to the State 4 South league season. Both clubs won promotion in 2016 with Heart winning every league game of an historic season and the visitors to Baxter Park go into this clash having won three of four derby meetings against Roy Kilner’s men. Baxter’s Mark Pagliarulo is expected to overcome a calf problem but his striking partner Liam Kilner received a bodyblow last week when ruled out for the season due to a bulging disc in his lower back. Pagliarulo will be partnered in attack by teenager Travis Ernsdoerfer from Bentleigh Greens who signed last week along with former Endeavour Hills midfielder Liam Tinsley. As we went to press Baxter was trying to complete the signing of young midfielder Jack Gallagher from Kingston City. The ace up Heart’s sleeve could be Italian midfielder Marco Cannella. Heart was waiting for his international clearance as we went to press and if it comes through in time the ASD Pro

Seaford signing: Midfielder Tom Natoli has joined from Brighton. Picture: Darryl Kennedy

Appio star will be thrust straight into the fray on Saturday. An excellent work rate and good distribution are hallmarks of his game and the coaching staff have been impressed in the four weeks in which he’s trained with the club. “I’m really excited about him and I think he could turn into a fantastic pick-up for us,” said Heart gaffer Scott Morrison. Peninsula Strikers embark on their promotion campaign when they clash with Eltham Redbacks at Centenary Park on Saturday. Boosting the senior squad with three imports and gun predator Aziz Bayeh says much about Strikers’ intentions in 2017 but now it’s time to walk the walk. Eltham won promotion last season and is celebrating its 50th year and there is no doubt that senior coach Paul Harris will field an organised and competitive outfit. Saturday is an historic day for Somerville Eagles as they make their State 5 South debut against Old Mentonians at Somerville Secondary College. “I spent two seasons with Heart so I know a fair bit about the sides in State 5 and Old Mentonians are well drilled and resilient and will make it tough for us,” said Eagles coach Neil Herd. “I’d still like to add a midfielder and a striker to the squad and we’re continuing to look for those types of players.” Langwarrin’s league campaign starts without highly rated central defender and former Macclesfield Town youth team captain Kieron Kenny who has returned to England for family reasons. Kenny is expected to miss two league games but is tipped to return alongside another central defensive recruit that he recommended to the Lawton Park outfit. Frankston Pines have been rocked by news that recruits Christopher L’Enclume and Cedric Permal are sidelined after their Mauritian clubs

refused to authorise their international clearances and lodged protests with FIFA. It’s believed that FFA is representing Pines in this matter and the club has asked the national body if it can authorise provisional clearances until the standoff is resolved. On the FFA Cup front no local side remains in this year’s competition after Saturday’s fourth round. Mornington was a surprise 2-1 loser at home to Morwell Pegasus, Langwarrin went down 8-0 at home to NPL heavyweight Hume City while Comets lost 4-0 at home to NPL2 outfit Nunawading City. Morwell hit the front in the 10th minute after Mornington failed to clear a free kick and Samuel Gatpan spun around and hit a low left foot shot in off the far post. In the 59th minute a long ball into the Morwell area was partially cleared and Mornington midfielder Chris Reid met it on the volley and sent it wide of Morwell keeper Liam Andersen to make it 1-1. The decisive moment came in the 64th minute when Alpha Turay executed an acrobatic overhead kick following a corner to the back post for what proved to be the winner. Hume striker Nick Hegarty scored a hat-trick at Lawton Park. Other scorers were substitute Attila Ofli (2), Liam Boland, Anthony Bran and an own goal from Mat Luak. Nunawading’s scorers were Mitch Cooper (3) and Ivan Skoric. Here are the local senior squads for 2017 with the previous club of new signings in brackets: BAXTER GOALKEEPERS: Francis Beck, Daniel D’Alfonso.

Peninsula clubs Premiership players kick off local league season

kick off a new tradition

By Ben Triandafillou TWO peninsula football and netball clubs will play off in the first running of the Obrien Cup on Saturday 25 March. The Rye Football/ Netball Club and the Chelsea Football/ Netball Club will face each other in the Obrien Cup which is to be held at RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye. The event will add to the clubs long standing friendly rivalry with hopes for it to be held annually. “We traditionally play Edithvale-Aspendale in the Ted Jarrard Cup each year which has been going for about 20 years now so we hope we can have something similar to that with the Obrien cup,” Rye Football and Netball Club president, Mick O’Rourke said. The event will involve three football matches with the main event to start at 2 pm with the girls’ netball matches to begin at 10am. The clubs haven’t met since 2004 when they went into separate leagues but with the support of their sponsors, Obrien Real Estate, the clubs will finally meet again. “We are delighted to host the Obrien Cup, anything to help out our sponsors and put them out there. They’ve embraced the sporting community and are sponsoring our new scoreboard and we very are thankful for their support,” O’Rourke said. The clubs have faced each other 62 times with Chelsea leading the tally with 37 victories over the demons. The day will involve a free barbeque for the kids as well as face painting and other activities.

By Ben Triandafillou TWO AFL premiership players will be coming to the peninsula in April to play a few matches for local Nepean League football teams. The Pearcedale Football Club will have the ex-AFL stars Daniel Kerr and Barry Hall joining their line-up for a couple of one-off matches at the start of their season. Kerr, 33, spent his entire career at the West Coast Eagles and helped take the side to a one-point victory in the 2006 AFL grand final. Kerr will play his first match for the Tyabb Football Club on 01 April before slipping on the boots a week later for Pearcedale in the opening round of the Nepean league. Having felt the dominance of Brendon Fevola at full forward in last year’s Good Friday match against the Frankston Bombers, Pearcedale are hoping to turn the tables with Barry Hall joining the team and towering up front in the Good Friday clash on Friday 14 April. Hall, who has played for St. Kilda, the Sydney Swans and the Western Bulldogs, has had a remarkable career including captaining the Swans to their 2005 AFL grand final victory. “We are really excited to have them join us. Hopefully they’ll inspire the juniors as well as some of our own players,” Pearcedale Football Club president, Margaret Brown said. Almost 5000 people turned up for last year’s Good Friday match at Frankston Park where Fevola booted six goals. This year the Dales will have the privilege of hosting both matches at Tractor Park, Pearcedale. “They’ll be here for the day and Daniel Kerr will be giving a talk afterwards and Barry Hall will be talking at the luncheon and signing autographs,” Brown said. Tickets to the functions are available from the club.

Lifesaving Nippers shine in championships

Bowling club honours Victorian champion of champions

NIPPERS from Mornington Peninsula lifesaving clubs performed strongly in the Victorian Junior Lifesaving Championships at Warrnambool last weekend. Mornington Life Saving Club placed third overall, winning 12 gold, 16 silver and 15 bronze medals. Ella Watts had the best individual performance, winning gold in the U12 iron woman and surf race events. Portsea Surf Life Saving Club Nippers also put on an impressive display winning nine gold, 12 silver and five bronze medals. Cleo Richardson won four of the gold medals in the U10 beach flag, beach sprint, surfboard and 500-metre beach run events. Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club took home six gold, three silver and seven bronze medals. Sorrento and Mt Martha Nippers each won gold

By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Bowling Club hosted their annual Jack Glasser Day tournament to honour one of the peninsula’s finest bowlers on Sunday 19 March. The club continued their long tradition to remember Jack Glasser, who competed at the highest level of bowling and led Mornington to several titles during the 70’s. “He really was a great guy and talented coach and obviously a very good bowler,” Mornington Bowling Club Tournament organizer, Doug Brough said. Jack passed away in 1993 and the event has been running since then in his honour . He won the Champion of Champions title for Victoria in 1972 and played over 100 games for the state. Beginning his career at West Coburg, Glasser became a three time club champion during the period of 1954 and 1967 before joining Mornington in 1968. Glasser went on to become an eight time club champion at the Mornington Bowling Club and a four time Peninsula Bowling Association champions of champions. “He was a real gentleman, one of the old schoolers. He would do anything for you and was a wonderful guy. The family is still involved and they come down every year and play on the day,” Brough said. This year’s tournament saw 24 teams of four players competing and was fittingly won by the Glasser family. Stan, Sandra and their daughter Sharon with family friend Graeme Davies managed to come out on top in the Jack Glasser day tournament. “The day went very well and the weather was brilliant. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the Glasser family are going to continue to support the day which is great,” Brough said.

medals. Life Saving Victoria director aquatic sports Rachael Rylance said it was wonderful to see so many young lifesavers giving it their all in the water and on the sand. “Congratulations to all of our Nippers who represented their clubs at the championships,” Ms Rylance said. “It was a wonderful two days of high standard competition and most importantly, great sportsmanship. “We can see from the water and beach skills on display that we are in safe hands with our future generation of lifesavers. “Thank you to all the parents, officials, water safety, volunteers and most importantly Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club, who once again hosted a successful championship event.”

Racquet in hand for Moorooduc students By Ben Triandafillou MORE than 40 students from Moorooduc Primary School received brand new tennis racquets on Monday 20 March as part of Tennis Australia’s ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program.

kids picking up and enjoying tennis. “It’s fantastic to see so many tennis racquets in the hands of young children, which really encourages them to jump on the tennis court for the first time. The School Partnership Program is accessible to any primary school in Australia and gives kids the opportunity to play tennis as part of their curriculum. Tennis is a fantastic sport for kids – and their families – to play as part of an active and healthy lifestyle,” Molik said. The day concluded with a school assembly with some lucky students presented with their new racquets provided by the Hot Shots program.
