MATES RATES Mount Gambier A fresh new look! See page 3 for details.


COVER - MATES RATES MOUNT GAMBIER ADDS A NEW FRANCHISE TO ITS BUSINESS Family owned Mates Rates Mount Gambier have been servicing the region for over seven years now and this month are relaunching the brand while the business undergoes somewhat of a transformation. Designing, selling and building sheds of all sizes, including domestic, commercial and industrial, as well as steel kit homes, local distributors for Fielders Centenary carports and verandahs they pride themselves on being market leaders in price and quality.For that reason they’ve transitioned to the new Sheds and Homes Franchise to supply their steel sheds and steel kit homes. While the product is the same high level quality they’ve always sold, they now have a much larger range and increased buying power. It’s all about quality and value for money at Mates Rates with its vision statement as true today as it was when Adam and Jaala Fosdike opened their doors - “market leaders in price and quality”. It sees Adam constantly searching the marketplace across Australia for the best quality products at the best price. “If we can’t find suppliers that can deliver this to our customers we simply don’t supply it,” he said. “We want our customers to know that they are getting the best priced quality product every time they shop with us” The new franchise allows Mates Rates Mount Gambier to capitalise on its strong relationship with Moody Builders, placing owner Craig Moody, his crew leader Simon Cram

and Barry Moody the roller door specialist at the helm of the Sheds and Homes construction side of the business. The projects team led by Adam Fosdike (Business Manager/ Sales), the administration officer Jaala Fosdike (Office Administrator/Drafting/ Designer) and Shylah Fosdike (Designer/ Administrator trainee) enable successful completion from thought to finish. Supplying and building sheds since 2011, Mates Rates have hundreds of sheds already built across the Limestone Coast and Western Victoria, and twice celebrating top 3 in National Sales in their current WSS Steelx division for 2017. Their sheds are all made from 100% Australian Blue Scope Steel and include site specific engineering to ensure they are built to survive the harsh Australian conditions. Sheds and Homes provides steel kit homes, which are a fantastic money saver for a competent owner-builder. The low prices include the supply of the frames,trusses, Colorbond exterior walls and roof with the internals to be finished by the client.Not only termite proof but these steel kit homes have proven to be a really cost effective way to achieve a showroom home on a budget. They also come with a council approval guarantee or your money back. Along with supplying the local market with prefabricated steel buildings Mates Rates are the largest trailer retailer in the Region stocking a huge range of painted and hot dipped galvanised trailers of all sizes.



David Williams is the dedicated trailer specialist who can talk you through your trailer needs including tradie tops, stock crates, hydraulic tippers, heavy tonnage and any custom trailer design you can imagine.

Despite a sizeable crowd attending Friday’s auction of Kingston’s iconic landmark and associated restaurant and function centre, Larry the Lobster, did not go under the hammer although owners Casey and Jenna Sharpe and real estate agents Ottoson Partners Real Estate are still confident the stunning tourist attraction and potential business will still find a buyer. A vendor bid of $300,000 opened Friday’s proceedings but there were no further offers, although the media attention afforded the 40 year old lobster looks set to generate more interest and in turn, perhaps, a buyer. Larry has recently undergone a $50,000 makeover. His current owners are the third in Larry’s four decade history and have owned the landmark since 2007.


ORCHIDS IN THE SPOTLIGHT It’s been going for almost 50 years and this year the Mount Gambier Orchid Club Spring Show promises to be amazing with Adelaide based orchid grower Stephen Monkhouse headlining the two day event. The spring show is not only a chance for local orchid growers to showcase their flowers and get feedback from judges Roger and Pauline Rankin, but it is also a chance for networking, learning from orchid experts and a chance for the general public to view around 70 plants of this spectacular flower. “There’ll be normal orchids that anyone can grow right through to orchids you can grow if you really put your mind to it,” club secretary Robert Wood said. Mr Wood will be part of the potting demonstrations throughout the two days this weekend, which run from 10am to 4pm, at the Reidy Park Centre on O’Halloran Terrace. Mr Monkhouse will be the main attraction though, specialising in the spectacular Zygopetalum Orchid. He has attended three world conferences,

including in New York, and for Mr Monkhouse orchids are a family affair. “In 1964 dad started in Adelaide Orchids,” Mr Monkhouse said. “I guess it was in my blood.” Mr Monkhouse briefly relocated to Bal in 2003, selling the business name. “I didn’t know I was going to come back home which is why I now trade under Stephen Monkhouse Orchids,” he said. And Zygopetalum Orchids are his passion as he constantly looks to breed new varieties. “We are leading the world in breeding,” he said. It makes his visit to the 2017 Spring Orchid Show a real coup for the local club, which boasts around 20 members at the moment. Cymbidiams and Dendrobiums will also be in focus when Mr Monkhouse shares his expertise with club members and the general public alike, as will Brassolaeliocattleya (BLC). Mr Monkhouse forged a close relationship with respected Mount Gambier nursery owner Robin Conboy, now retired, as well as long standing local orchid aficionado Jim Shaughnessy. Mr Monkhouse also has some wonderful advice on fertiliser and what he describes as a foolproof product he believes so strongly in, he markets it himself. Mr Monkhouse has been working with orchids since he was 16, making him a 48 year veteran of the breed. “I will be bringing some of my plants, some in flower, some not, for everyone to have a look at,” he said. Judging of the entered orchids will take place this Friday night, before the show opening on Saturday, with a people’s choice prize also on offer. “The people that vote for the winning people’s choice orchid will also go into a draw to win a special prize,” Mr Wood said. There will also be a raffle and plants for sale. Above - Zygopetalum Orchid, which will be prominent at the 2017 Mount Gambier Orchid Club Spring Show this weekend.

SHINING A LIGHT ON DEMENTIA Greg Kelly is a larrikin who loves to joke around. It has been his modus operandi for 61 years but behind the quips and the self-effacing one liners, Kell is delivering a serious message close to his heart. The Gold Coast resident is riding his Harley across Australia, New Zealand and the United States to raise awareness about dementia, particularly young onset dementia – a terminal disease he was diagnosed with two years ago. Born and bred in Newcastle, Greg Kelly has survived motorbike falls and some reckless behaviour in his youth to now see his body attack him from within. “There are 20 and 30 year olds in Australia with dementia and last year an 11 month old was diagnosed in the

United States,” Kell said. “It is no longer about 80 and 90 year olds.” In fact, dementia is Australia’s second largest killer and experts predict in a decade it will elevate to number one and from diagnosis to death, patients, on average, are given six to eight years. One of Kell’s first questions was “what are we doing about it?” “There is no media, no advertising, no money,” he said. And it’s why Kell is on this ride. He wants to raise awareness of this insidious disease and he hopes sharing his message with communities across the three countries, he can bring pressure to bear on the people he really hopes are listening – the top 500 companies. “I want them to put half a cent from each dollar profit into medical research into the top 10 killers,” Kell said. “This ride is about you and your kids and your grandkids and your great grandkids.” Humour has been his defence mechanism with coping with his diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia – it is an executive dementia. “I’ve been an executive all my life so why wouldn’t I get executive dementia,” Kell joked with the diagnosing doctor. That means it will affect his executive functions, like speech, and for a man who by his own

admission, didn’t start with a lot of filters, it does take away your filters. “My rat bag mates ring up and say you’ve had it since you were eight but now we have a diagnosis,” Kell said. Seems humour is a defence mechanism for not just Kell. But his campaign is all business and he is determined to get in the ear of top CEOs around the country. “This (dementia) kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer together,” he said. “If they would donate that small percentage to medical research we wouldn’t have to ask mums and dads for five or 10 dollars anymore.” In his sights at the moment is Andrew Twiggy Forest. “People have told me he would be a good one to get a meeting with,” Kell said. “I’ll buy him his coffee – I just want to have a chat that’s all.” And he wants to have that chat so he can kickstart a more serious conversation about dementia and his wide view about medical research. “I don’t want this to happen to other people,” Kell said. “It’s about turning the lights on it (dementia). Greg Kelly is no one. I am nothing but I know I had to get the big brands on board so people would listen.” And the ride is just one aspect of Kell’s campaign – there is a song and a documentary and they too, while they do provide fundraising opportunities, are all about raising awareness. Kell’s Ride is a song written by Alex Straker and performed by Matt McLaren, a blind artist, from Kell’s hometown of Newcastle, that rose to fame on Australia’s Got Talent.

It is now available on iTunes and all proceeds will go direct to finding a cure for dementia. It is poignant watching Kell listen to the recently recorded track – as any dementia sufferer or carer will tell you, music appears to use a different part of the brain and it so often brings someone with dementia to life. “Alex (Straker) heard me talking at a conference focussed on overcoming obstacles and in 26 hours he had this song written and ready to go. “We just said let’s do this – let’s produce it,” Kell said. He is hoping to raise $6million from downloads of the song. “It’s just another way we can turn the spotlight on dementia.” The documentary is another and it is a chance of being shortlisted to be part of the Cannes Film Festival. The 10 minute Elizabeth McLeish production was launched on the Gold Coast at the end of last month. It is a candid insight into Kell, his partner Janet and his two sons Mike and Adam, as they come to terms with the diagnosis. “I’m a smart man and I didn’t know you could die from dementia,” Kell said to his doctor at the time of diagnosis. “I don’t think I’ll get answers in enough time for me but if I can do something to turn money into research and get the answers for you guys and for your families and for my family and my grandkids then I’ve done something. Kell started his ride across Australia on August 12 with good mate Paul Griggs in tow in his Ford support vehicle. He visited Mount Gambier’s Barry Maney Ford, who jumped on

board as part of Kell’s sponsorship, adding some fuel cards to the mix when he arrived, last Monday. Kell has been riding motorbikes since he was 10 and has owned 26 of them over the journey. “I wouldn’t have done this on anything but a Harley,” Kell said. “It is like sitting in a lounge chair.” You can head to the Kell’s Ride facebook page, Instagram or go fund me page to keep track of his journey and provide support.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - AS OLD AS MY TONGUE & A LITTLE BIT OLDER THAN MY TEETH... By ROBBIE TANSEL I’ve realised recently that I’m starting to get old. I don’t think it just happened overnight or anything. It’s one of those things that creeps up on you and you don’t really realise until it’s too late. One of the things that has really brought this home to me is realising the things that I can’t do anymore. For example, I recently made the mistake of trying to ride a bike. Shaquille has a bike, and he wanted me to jump on the dusty two wheeled vehicle in the corner of the shed that he identified as my bike. Now as a young man I could ride my bike around the

neighbourhood all day with ease. I could ride up hills. I could jump over all my neighbours lying on the ground. Physically it was not taxing in any way. That is no longer the case. I quickly found that riding up hill was about as likely to be successful as asking Megan Fox out for a date. Another thing I can’t do anymore is making decisions about my hairstyle. Essentially most hairstyles are no longer available to me. As part of a hair cut I get charged a finders fee these days. I haven’t put a comb or a brush through my hair for about fifteen years. One key thing I used to be able to do was go through the night without going to the toilet four times. I’m not really sure how my bladder shrank to a point where it’s unable to hold a reasonable amount of urine. I do have a theory that during Shaquille’s early years where he was waking up every two hours, I got in the habit of going to the toilet because I was up anyway. My bladder got conditioned to this new routine and now expects to be voided regularly through the night. I used to find it easier to purchase clothes in my younger days. Most clothing options seemed reasonable and appropriate for me to wear. Most clothing options still seem reasonable and appropriate for me to wear now, but the problem is that many of them are not appropriate and I now no longer realise. It takes a helpful person like Donna to let me know that I look ridiculous or that I no longer have a bum or hips and can’t wear tracksuit pants anymore. At the moment, knowing that I may unwittingly wear something inappropriate is quite embarrassing. The positive I’m taking from it is it won’t be long and it will actually be embarrassing Shaquille which should be pretty enjoyable. One of the signs that my best days are behind me when | 23

it comes to my clothing is that I generally select my outfit based on comfort rather than style these days. I’d rather look stupid than deal with chafing for example. One of the most obvious ways I’ve realised I’m becoming old is that I turn on a radio now and I don’t know any of the songs or musicians. I probably could have left that sentence at knowing I’m old because I turn on the radio. Who turns on a radio these days? Haven’t you heard of Pandora old man? It’s not all bad being old though. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m looking forward to reaching that age where I just don’t care about other people’s opinions anymore. I really want to get to that age where I just say whatever I want with no care or concern as to whether it will upset other people. I think they call that going through your Prince Phillip stage. Anyway, I had tea tonight at 5:00 and it’s now 7:30 so I’m going to bed. You can email me at robbietansel@ but the chances are I’m going to have to wait until Shaquille’s old enough to explain to me how to access my emails.

IN THE GARDEN I wonder whether after a dry start to winter if this wettest of late winter/ spring will set us up for the best spring ever with the late burst of cold winter weather confusing us all. When is spring ever going to come? A few days ago it was almost spring, albeit momentarily. As I write this the sun is shining, even though the nights are crisp, with the recent frosts good for paeonies and bulbs. This combination of weather triggers plants in to life, as well as dormant bulbs and tubers. It would be wonderful to have the temperatures rising and a bit more sunshine for us growers and most gardeners. Now is the absolute last chance to plant bare rooted trees, shrubs and fruit trees and roses, as the buds are bursting into life on most deciduous trees and roses in the past week. The staff at Limestone Coast Advanced Trees, Gardenarium and Limestone Coast Roses have been madly potting for the past month or so in readiness for spring and summer. We have some amazing deals on the ever popular Oak trees, including Scarlet Oak, Pin Oak, Red Oak and English Oak, Golden Ash, the ever popular and stunning Japanese maples, Lipstick maple trees plus mop top trees at ridiculous prices, which are great for formal gardens. A whole host of fruit trees including peaches, nectarines, walnuts, plus figs and mulberries and, of course, citrus trees are now on offer. Spring is the best time to plant citrus trees and with over $10 off advanced and extra large

By Calum Haygarth Landscape Architect & Horticultural Consultant grade trees, half price Eureka lemons and Tahitian Limes the time has never been better. Half price Mop Top trees have been racing out the door, so be quick as there are only limited numbers remaining. If you haven’t considered planting winter dormant (bare rooted) trees now is pretty much the last opportunity. But don’t stress as the days are long gone where you pretty much had to plant at this time as that’s the only way deciduous trees were available. With the expansion of the Limestone Coast Advanced Tree section on Bay Road in Mount Gambier again late last Autumn means even more stock than ever is on site and in larger numbers, saving us time bringing stock in from our growing facility. The expansion will allow homeowners mainly, the chance to browse an even broader range of trees which can be purchased straight away, although landscapers, councils and developers will benefit too from the added stock held. At present we have five grades of trees from advanced right through to semi mature in 200 litre bags, with plans to introduce more grades for everyone in every price point. The range includes deciduous, evergreen, native, fruit trees, citrus, including espaliered, as well as many eucalyptus and pittosporum varieties. In addition, we will increase the number of in ground displays to show customers the ultimate size and shape that can be attained in a particular tree.

ALL AUSTRALIAN SELECTION FOR JESS Millicent’s Sarah Allan was part of the inaugural Adelaide Crows premiership team in the AFLW competition and her younger sister Jess looks set to find an AFLW home after the October 18 draft after gaining selection in the Under 18 All Australian team. The best in the nation were honoured after the Under 18 VictoriaAllies curtain raiser at Etihad Stadium on September 2. Jess was named in the ruck and also awarded the vice captaincy of the talent rich line-up. Adding to those accolades was the Ladder Champion Award – an award presented by youth homelessness charity Ladder to the player who displays attributes, on and off the field, that align with Ladder’s core values – commitment and passion – and Jess became the first female player to take home the award. Jess was part of the inaugural South East Female Football Academy, established by her father, Keith, and also played in the SANFL women’s competition for Glenelg.

Spring is the most spectacular time to look at and purchase blossom trees. Despite the wind over the past few weeks, a great deal of spectacular trees around the region have still put on their wonderful displays. Here, at Limestone Coast Advanced Trees we have nearly half price off all our bare rooted dormant weeping cherries for the next week unless sold out or they burst in to bud prior, in which case they will have to be potted up, as well as 25% off all advanced blossom trees in flower right now including many of the sought after magnolias like Black Tulip, as well as the three new releases, Genie, Cleopatra and Cameo (see pictures facing page). At present we have our Magnificent Magnolias festival on and the nursery is packed full of dozens of flowering magnolias in all shapes and sizes, and with 25% off for the next week, now is the time to rush in and look at these magical trees and shrubs in full bloom. My particular favourite is Black Tulip with its deep beetroot/burgundy cup shaped blooms that are huge and last so well. This tougher variety from New Zealand is hard to rival, but the traditional Nigra two toned varieties with darker striped outers and pure white inners are still as popular as ever (see picture in our advert). If you have not considered one then now is a good time to see an accurate flower colour, rather than going on books and labels which can be incorrect.

Our range of metal animals made by orphans in Zimbabwe are also half price in the sale, this includes, large birds, such as heron and brolgas right down to the cute esky cooler like the VW Kombi, Mini Cooper and aussie ute (see advert) and even the cow mailbox, just what every farm entrance needs, or if you missed getting dad his father’s day present, here is a chance to redeem yourself. Spring is, of course, the time for cleaning and we are no different. With masses of new lines arriving from one of my recent buying trips, we need room. So, we are clearing a lot of exdemo water features and fountains at less than cost. Outdoor furniture settings have been slashed to clear, as well as pots, to make way for container loads of new fountains, pots and garden arbours. The new ranges include some amazing metal sculptures, wall art, benches and arches, along with a whole new range of outdoor furniture cementing Gardenarium as the outdoor furniture specialists in the region. With our direct purchasing and the continuing strength of the dollars our prices are set to fall again on much of our range. We also have a whole new range of reclaimed teak outdoor furniture to complement the range we started a few years ago which has been hugely successful, with new dining chairs at incredibly low prices and casual outdoor couches and seating for 2017/18 (see website for details).

Keep an eye out on television for our new outdoor furniture advert you’re going to love it. So, what are you waiting for - get your trailer or ute and get on down to Gardenarium and the Limestone Coast Group at 167,Bay Road (Riddoch Hwy) in Mount Gambier and grab a bargain or go to www. and have your purchases sent to you throughout the Limestone coast, Western Victoria and our recently expanded Mallee services as well as the Riverland as long as stocks last, which wont be long given the discounts.

continues his fundraising efforts for a charity close to his heart – CanTeen. The charity, that supports young

people suffering from cancer or touched by the disease through a family member and the organisation has been an integral part of Sam’s life for a few years now. His father Bazz died of brain cancer in 2014. Sam thoroughly enjoys the activities and time he spends with CanTeen and has been active in fundraising circles, including encouraging his school, St Martins Lutheran College, to participate in Bandana Day every year. The school and Millicent & District Darts Association, where Sam is the youngest participant, have both supported Sam in his latest fundraising effort – this weekend’s fun run. One of Sam’s school friends will be splitting proceeds from a food stall fundraiser with CanTeen and the Leukaemia Foundation, while the darts association presented the grateful teenager with a cheque for $200. To help Sam reach his target of at least $500 head to https://citybay2017. The City-Bay Fun Run is on September 17.

Students from Jik Cheung Kung Fu Australia and the Mount Gambier Jujitsu Club attended a joint cross training day in Mount Gambier. KUNG FU STUDENTS JOIN FORCES WITH JUJITSU CLUB FOR CROSS TRAINING Late last month, Jik Cheung Kung Fu Australia hosted its first cross training seminar with the Mount Gambier Jujitsu Club. The morning session was conducted by Jik Cheung Kung Fu Australia, and instructors Sifu Amedeo Cella, Sidai Anthony Baseley and Sidai Terry Farrell all provided valuable insight into various drills, hand techniques and applications from Muk Yan Chong Fa (wooden dummy). This insight provided opportunity for the Jujitsu students to develop new methods of engaging with an opponent, and new ways of leading into their own techniques. In the afternoon, Sensei Dave Grassi took over the afternoon timeslot and demonstrated multiple Tai Sabaki movements, with a strong focus on developing appropriate footwork to off-balance and move around the opponent. Students were provided with multiple approaches, which allowed for the application of “wrist crunches” or joint

locks, as well as throws and groundwork. Overall students from both schools were impressed with how the two styles aligned with each other, and look forward to holding further cross training days in future. Below - Sensei Dave Grassi demonstrates “wrist crunches” during the cross training seminar.

SPORT PIONEERS 2017 - THAT’S A WRAP With a win loss record of 24 and three, the East Conference title and the national championship, the Castec Rural Supplies Mount Gambier Pioneers put together as close to a perfect season as you can probably hope for in sport. “We didn’t have too many bad games,” head coach Richard Hill said. “It wasn’t the best team we’ve had but it was the easiest group to coach. I don’t think it was a good as the ’15 team as far as talent goes. DJ (Daniel Johnson) and Tyrone (Lee) were on that team and DJ was an unbelievable player.” Hill did clarify that during his tenure the club, from within as much as through his leadership, had developed a good culture. “We didn’t have any problems at all (this year) but in fairness we’ve never had massive problems,” Hill said. “When you spend as much time together as we do and sit in a little mini bus travelling long distances, the chemistry was really good and that reflected in the consistent performance. It was an incredible record because it is not an easy competition.” Adding to the stature of the 2017 season record was the Pioneers had a tough draw. “The two Canberra teams and Melbourne were the only teams that were not at a pretty high level and we only played them once so to be able win as many games as we did with a compromised draw was pretty good. It was pretty close to perfect.” Most coaches aim for their teams to play their best when it counts the most and that has always been Hill’s mantra as well. “I have been preaching for some time to play our best game when it matters and I think we did that for a quarter,” he said. That was the third quarter of the national championship final – the 28-11 scoreline bowling the title race apart. “From a defensive point of view that’s as good as we’ve played all year and we were really good on offensive end as well,” Hill said. “That was the key being able to do that. You can never do that for a while game.” After quieter games in the home court play-off games against emerging rival Nunawading, Hill suspected Erik Burdon would prove the X factor in the national championship final and that’s exactly how things panned out. “Nunawading are an outstanding defensive team and Eze (Burdon) couldn’t get open but we figured the way Dandenong played he would get open and play in more space. It was just going to be a matter

of whether he could knock down the shots.,” Hill said. Of course, history will show he did, finishing the national title match with 22 points, including six from eight from three point territory. Tom Daly, who has thrived since his elevation to the captaincy in 2017, took out the grand final MVP award as his consistent season continued. “Tom had a great game, Daniel (Alexander) had a really good game and Brad (Hill) was good in the second half and Eze was probably the difference,” Hill said. The three time national championship winning coach believes Daly, Alexander or Burdon would have been worthy winner of the grand final MVP honour. “Tom certainly deserved it and his two previous play off games were of a similar standard,” Hill said. It was just reward for a player who Hill believes would have been in the conversation in the previous two national finals where MVP honours went the way of Brad Hill and Damian Johnson. “Each one of those games, Tom would have been in the conversation,” Hill said. Alexander’s 15 points and 16 rebounds, especially given he was in foul trouble for much of the contest, and Burdon’s 22 points were also clearly instrumental in the championship victory. The grand final MVP and runner-up finish in the club’s MVP award – the Allan Scott Medal - was just reward for Daly in his first season in the top leadership job. “I think anytime you empower someone it makes them feel good about themselves and empowering him (Daly) with the role of leader of a really good group of guys probably gave him a stronger self belief,” Hill said. “His form is also really reflective of the hard work we’ve been doing and he’s still getting better. He shot at nearly 60 percent from the floor and that’s unbelievable. He lives at Squashbrook and he is on the court two extra times a week working on his game. He was ready for the leadership.” Daly was pipped for the Allan Scott Medal by star import Alexander. “The voting was much closer than you imagine,” Hill said. “Daniel (Alexander) is such a dynamic player and he’s been so exciting. He brought exactly what I thought he would as I was watching a lot of tape because of his versatility. Daniel is an outstandingly gifted athlete the likes of which we will never see again here. That’s why I was so persistent. He is a unique

talent and a unique person.” Jack Magden secured the coach’s award at the presentation evening – another player being rewarded for hard work and playing the role assigned to him for the good of the team. “He (Madgen) had two really good games in the two home finals. He works harder than Tom Daly and that’s saying something.” In the same vein as Magden, Luke Jamieson also elevated his game in 2017 and was named defensive player of the year. “Last year Luke was prepared to sacrifice the start for the chemistry of the team,” Hill said. “He is a much better player now and he will continue to grow and be a really, really good player.” Hill is optimistic the key big man will call Mount Gambier and the Pioneers home for some time to come now, in the same way as Matt Sutton, Burdon and Daly. “I hope he will be a Pioneer for some time,” Hill said. “He is one of the family here now and he is close to a lot of people and I hope he’ll be here beyond when I’m here.” Hill is heading into the last season of his contract and chances are that will be it for the most successful coach in the club’s history. It’s why succession planning has been front of mind this year and heading into next. The captaincy changeover was part of that plan and the 200 game, dual national championship winning skipper Matt Sutton has announced his retirement. “I don’t think the Pioneers have seen the last of him (Sutton),” Hill said. “He would be a good assistant coach – he’s too nice a guy to be a head coach.” Club chairman Neil Boase is also stepping down after a six year reign as the club looks to ensure that change of leadership, on and off the court, is not all in one season. “Neil (Boase) has had a remarkable impact on our club,” board member Tom Kosch said. “He leaves the club in a really good place and the success we have had says a lot about his leadership in that time.” Transition is set to be a buzz word around the club in the next 12 months. “Transition into another era with different leaders but with similar results,” Hill said. cont. opp. page

SPORT PIONEERS 2017 - THAT’S A WRAP FROM OPP. PAGE “Expectations will be high but you can’t continue to do what we’ve been doing, it isn’t realistic. As I said at the presentation night, we lose the final and the season is 23-4 but we won and it’s 24-3 – that’s still pretty good but people will judge you by the final hurdle and that’s sport. We need to continue to be highly competitive. We need to keep the profile of club there to get bums on seats, to get sponsors what they need – to be associated with a winner.” Sponsorship has gone from $95,000 to $200,000 since Hill was placed in charge. Exit meetings are almost finished with the playing roster and then things will taper off for Hill and the club for a few weeks before getting

signatures on contracts and chasing the missing pieces for the 2018 puzzle begins. “I always see what the Australians we secure first and then pick other guys that will fit in that group,” Hill, who wades through hundreds of tapes and narrows it down to a final 20 that he makes phone contact with for the import roles, said. Other awards at the club’s season ending presentation night went to Brad Hill (Golden Hands Award); Ryan Meakin (Bowden Family Volunteer of the Year Award) and Julie Howe-Tipene (Jason Joynes Club Person of the Year).

SAINTS STAR CELEBRATES 300 GAMES A ten time premiership player and three time premiership coach – it’s a resume the envy of most and it’s only the tip of the iceberg. Millicent playing coach Lisa Duldig treasures those team achievements and she has a swag of individual accolades as well, as the star mid courter hit the court for her 300th senior game as a Saint in Saturday’s second semi final against North Gambier. In a twist of fate, husband Steve, celebrated the identical milestone earlier this season. Universally revered, Lisa’s career started more than 20 years ago in 1997 as a member of Millicent’s 15 & Under team. She was again in that age group the following season when her proud history of representing Western Border also started, in the 15 & Under team, as well as selection in the South East regional team. As illustrious as her club career has been, her representative career is also impressive, with junior representative supplemented by 10 years of being part of the A Grade team, including the 2011, 2015 and 2017 SA Country titles. Lisa was named in the Top 10 Players of the Championship on all three

of those occasions. But the weekend celebrations were about the current co-coach of the A Grade team. It was as a 15 year old, in 1999, that Lisa started her A Grade career and only a year later that the teenager was part of the drought breaking premiership, ending 15 years without the ultimate success. That title has seen a dynasty established with the Saints crowned premiers 12 of the 16 years since – interrupted only by a North Gambier three-peat from 2003-05 and the upset Hamilton victory of 2008. This season they are gunning for a ninth consecutive title. Lisa has spent the majority of this golden era of Millicent netball alongside Hayley Dunn, Donna Denton and Audine Bryant but despite that trio’s impressive careers, Lisa sits comfortably in their company and well and truly no longer in their shadow. She has been selected by her peers in the Western Border team of the year on nine occasions and has been named coach of that team in the past three seasons and 2017. Donna Denton has been there for much of Lisa’s netball journey and her achievements and elevation to a 300 game revered player at the club is no surprise to her highly decorated team mate. “She does the work,” Denton said. “She works really hard. She has always wanted to improve her game and to be the best she could be sine she was 15. She has stuck at it.” As a team mate, Denton characterises her now coach, in a similar vein to the rest of the competition. “She is a reliable attacker and safe with the ball,” Denton said. “She also works so hard defensively and to turn the ball back and she does that all day long.” Put anyone on the spot to come up with one word to describe Lisa



and consistent would often be the adjective of choice. “She is such a consistent performer,” Denton said. “She plays the whole game at a very steady pace. She just chips away and supports the players around her and she always stays positive throughout.” Understandably, when Lisa took over the coaching reins from Denton, there were nerves as she took charge of her mentors. “I do think, though, being captain of the team for so long made it a smoother transition to coach,” Denton said. “I think coaching juniors also helped her in terms of planning trainings. She has always been a great leader.” The coaching role, which she has shared with Bryant in the past two seasons, has become her own. “She is very, very inspiring,” Denton said. “Her words are inspirational.” Lisa has been a player, junior and senior coach and committee member over her 21 year journey and shows no signs of slowing down, having only missed the 2006 season to travel and the 2012 and 2016 seasons when she was pregnant with children Pacey and Edie respectively.

PODIUM FINISH FOR KAI AT NATIONALS It’s not often a Year 6 student is competing with kids as old as Year 10 but that has been the story of the 2017 Australian Kart Championships for 12 year old Kai Allen. The 2016 Cadet 12 national champion could still be competing in that same category right through until July next year but in the interest of extending himself and improving his driving, Kai opted to graduate to KA4 Junior – the 16 Under category. Safe to say the Mount Gambier based driver more than held his own, finishing third in the championship, meaning in three years of competing on the national stage he has three podium finishes in the national championships – third in 2015 in Cadet 12, the category he won last year, as well

WESTERN BORDER FOOTBALL 2ND SEMI FINALS A GRADE as the third ranking this year, while competing out of age group. Kai finished the championship with 233 points but arguably the biggest accolade to come his way at the season gala presentation was being ranked the fourth best driver across all categories, including seniors, in an industry voted award that sees team mechanics and drivers rate the championship drivers across all five rounds of the national title race from the youngest to the oldest competitor. To be 12 and finish inside the top five is a huge feather in the young driver’s cap. Kai was not the only Mount Gambier based driver testing himself on the national stage with Jobe Stewart competing in the KA4 Junior as well, driving well to finish 12th with 59 points and Morgan Feast finishing ninth with 103 points in the very competitive X30 category.
