SINCE FIFTY SIX Steve & Lisa Duldig take on new challenge See page 3 for details.


COVER - NEW CHALLENGE FOR LISA & STEVE DULDIG They are only the fourth family to own and run a business out of 62 George Street in more than six decades and Lisa and Steve Duldig are all too aware of that proud history. It has seen them rebrand Tony Egan’s Mensland as Since Fifty Six but while the name has changed, not much else has. For two decades Di and Tony Egan have run a clothing and accessories business built on the foundation of quality brands and peerless customer service and Lisa, who will be the new face behind the counter, already realises the importance those two pillars of the business. Di Egan will still be part of the Since Fifty Six team, working two days a week and continuing to help Lisa and Steve learn the ropes. “We were looking for a new challenge and this seemed like a good fit,” Lisa said. “We had a good chat to Di and Tony (Egan) and they said how it was a lifestyle business and would suit our family life because you put into it what you want and you do have flexibility.” Steve, an accountant, also knew it was a good business and all the stars aligned. “I really enjoy the people contact,” Lisa said. “I spent a day in here earlier this year and loved it. You meet the new people that come to town and you get to know the regular customers that come in here. It is great that Di is staying on, though, as she is a familiar face and she knows the clientele.”

And the familiar brands will also remain in store, as Lisa and Steve look to build on the success established by the Egans. Specialising in menswear, ladies wear, accessories, workwear, uniforms for schools across the region and suit hire, Lisa is looking to add some new brands to attract a new generation of shoppers with streetwear brand Nana Judy, Mossimo and Gazman only weeks away. The new look lines will only complement the established brands in store including Levi’s, Windsor Smith, Bossini and Innsbrook, while in the ladies wear Little Lies, Pink Diamond and Blue Soul will add to the popular Black Pepper and Yarra Trails range of clothing. Since Fifty Six is also still a dry cleaning outlet. Steve and Lisa, along with children Pacey and Edie, are familiar faces in their own right in the Millicent district with both Steve and Lisa having clocked up 300 senior games for the Millicent Football Netball Club in 2017 and Steve being awarded Western Border Football League life membership last week.

SHINING A LIGHT ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ONE STEP AT A TIME Two Mount Gambier based teams have completed the Steps Together Virtual Challenge – a fundraising and awareness campaign instigated by Run Against Violence, a 100% volunteer member association established to use running and other sporting activities as a conduit for educating and engaging communities in family violence prevention. Starting on August 30, teams of 10 took up the challenge to walk or run 1300km – the same distance campaigner Kirrily Dear was running from Broken Hill to Sydney to give a voice to the often silent victims of domestic violence – the children. Kirrily’s first run came in 2014 when she traversed 860km to raise awareness for

intimate partner violence and its impact on the community. It has now become a nationwide team challenge with the two Mount Gambier teams – Blue Lake Avengers and the Volcanic Crusaders – both finishing early – five days prior to the September 17 deadline. The Volcanic Crusaders finished 14th out of the 218 competing teams, while the Blue Lake Avengers were 25th across the virtual line. The numbers of the challenge were significant – the 1300km journey represented 1.7million steps, the number of children exposed to domestic violence every year. While the 19 days of the challenge was a more complicated formula based on 10 people per team doing 10,000

steps a day, which would then total the 130km each team member had to do. The involvement of the two Mount Gambier teams came courtesy of Belinda Seaman who saw the Steps Together Virtual Challenge on facebook. “I thought it looked like a good challenge and it was for a fantastic cause,” Belinda said. “I asked if anyone would be interested in joining me and within a few hours we had one team and in just over a day we had two. I was blown away by the immediate response I received.”Walkers and runners from Mount Gambier, Mil Lel, Allendale, Millicent and Naracoorte joined the two teams and included 19 women and one man. It was only structured

exercise that could be counted, not incidental steps during the day. “We are all very passionate about this cause,” Belinda said. “Some members of our teams have experienced family violence personally, others have witnessed it or dealt with the consequences through work. Some have no personal experiences but we were all determined to make a change.” The challenge also doubled as an opportunity to start conversations about domestic violence. “People I have known for years that have never talked about this topic have opened up to me,” Belinda said. “I am so proud our message is reaching the community.”To assist with the fundraising aspect of the head to https://stepstogetherultramarathon.

A Chinese delegation from Tai’an visited Naracoorte last week as part of the Limestone Coast Councils’ support of the State Government trade missions to Shandong Province in China. Tai’an is located in the middle of China’s Shandong Province. Naracoorte was the only South Australian town on the itinerary. The Naracoorte Lucindale and Robe Councils are exploring a sister city relationship with Tai’an as a key step to opening up opportunities for mutually beneficial trade relationships, particularly in the area of tourism. Hosts, Mayor Vickery from the Naracoorte Lucindale Council and Mayor Riseley from the District Council of Robe, spent the day with the delegates visiting Bool Lagoon, the Naracoorte Caves, the Wrattonbully Wine Region and Mini Jumbuk. “Delegations such as the Tai’an group creates a connection with Chinese businesses to the region, they are then more likely to consider investment and import opportunities”, Mayor Erika Vickery said. “A prerequisite of doing business with the Chinese is that you have to invest time in building relationships. A large part of how Chinese conduct business is based on trust and Mayors in China are a conduit for business.” Robe Mayor Peter Riseley thanks Naracoorte Lucindale Council for inviting Robe to be part of this initiative. “The Limestone Coast is the major beneficiary of International visitors with 45,000 visitors last year,” he said. “Increasingly the Limestone Coast is becoming a favoured destination for Chinese visitors with many choosing the Adelaide Melbourne touring route targeting the Limestone Coast as a must see. The combination of the Naracoorte world heritage caves, Robe’s significant Chinese heritage, rock lobster and premium food and wines all combine to entice the Chinese visitor.” .

ORIGINAL MUSICAL SET TO HIT THE STAGE Grant High School takes a different approach to school musicals – it all started two years ago when teachers Mike Bakker and Scott Maxwell wrote an original work, Future Punk, for the student body to perform and now their second offering is set to hit the stage. On September 28 and 29 Spectrum will be performed at Mount Gambier’s Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre and from the performers, to the band, to the costume and set design, there are student fingerprints all over this project. The initial inspiration came one extremely cold night last year when Bakker and Maxwell went cycling and the way the bike lights played in the dark were how this whole project started. “Our first thought was doing a show that was visually spectacle,” Mr Maxwell said. Just as it was with Future Punk, Spectrum was about creating a show to which teenagers could relate. “We use our experience with kids to create realistic characters and characters that we know people will be able to relate to,” Mr Maxwell said. “Even after that first idea, it took us six months to put pen to paper.” It was in 1992 that Mr Bakker first started producing school musicals at Grant High School. “The thing with a lot of shows is they often require adult roles and I think students are too young to play those roles properly,” Mr Bakker said. “That’s really why Scott (Maxwell) and I decided to start writing our own.” Mr Maxwell agreed. “We wanted the kids in the show and those watching the show to see themselves reflected

in the show,” Mr Bakker said. “That’s an important aspect of what we do.” Students from Years 8-12 are part of Spectrum. “We find that students take a bigger ownership of the production because it’s a new work,” Mr Bakker said. “There are no pre-conceived ideas about how the show should look.” Given school musicals are a tradition at Grant High School dating back to the 1960s, it is a credit to both Mr Bakker and Mr Maxwell that they’ve been above to innovate while keeping the tradition well and truly alive. It means the staff and students involved spend lunch times, after school and weekends rehearsing, from the early days when the finer details were still being tweaked, until the recent full dress rehearsals. And both teachers

are all too aware of the impact these kind of experiences at school can have. “I still remember the school musicals I did but I can’t remember what I did in the classroom,” Mr Maxwell said. He is the man behind the music in Spectrum and he is proud of what is a very young band. There are five Year 9 students two each from Year 10 and 11 and one Year 12. “They are absolutely amazing, Mr Maxwell said. “Every time I’ve given them music they come in the next day ready to go. They take it really seriously and are always hungry for new music.” Spectrum has about 10 major songs and there is plenty if instrumental music as well. “It’s not your traditional music, it is definitely rock based,” Mr Maxwell said. And while the music, singing, dancing and

acting is all typical of a school musical, Spectrum has taken it to a whole new level with the innovative lighting and amazing puppetry. “The puppets are absolutely amazing,” Mr Maxwell said. “They are full bodied puppets and they really add to the visual spectacle.” There would be 60 kids all up involved in Spectrum, including the 35 strong musical cast. “This year we are also choosing to have a student as a stage manger,” Mr Bakker said. “We try and keep everything as student run as possible.” Of course there is also Laura Mancuso’s choreography, Abbey Marston-Kleemann’s producing and assistant directing, and Leah Fox’s and Amy Widdicombe’s amazing set and costume designs, as well as the creation of the puppets. The importance

of working on a new show is not lost on the students either – they are part of the original cast. And both Mr Bakker and Mr Maxwell are hopeful other schools will take up either of their original works, “We are pretty sure other schools will take this up,” they said. Spectrum delves into the unknown of the mythical Red Stone; is the power it unleashes good or bad – only time will tell. Follow Gaby and Alan, an unlikely duo on their journey to save the old mining town from the greedy hands of Seth Deadheart, a cold hearted villain.

STUDENTS COME UP WITH VANDALISM SOLUTION Tenison Woods College had been the victim of a series of vandalism attacks, mainly involving vehicle damage to the lawn on the front oval. A group of Year 11 students approached their VET Furniture teacher Trent Eitzen to propose installing a series of timber posts. The sutdents oversaw the entire project, from design, to costing, to installation. The students involved were Josh Adams, Dallas Brabham-Waye, Jaifyn Carlson, Charlie Fisher, Alex Harkness, Louis Merrett, Harrison Porter and Will Wittwer. Above - Louis Merrett & Harrison Porter.

The district governor visited the new Foodbank Hub and will be looking to iplement some of the local strategies at Foodbank SA in Adelaide. The Mount Gambier Lioness Club’s Emergency Packs [toiletries] for the hospital struck a chord with Judy, as her club, the Lions Club of Edwardstown, does a similar pack for the people sleeping rough. The club still has some key fudriainsg events on its 2017 calendar with a Bunnings BBQ on Saturda,y October 22, A Garden Day at Tower View, on October 29 and the Christmas Raffle.

HAMILTON LIVESTOCK CONSULTANT TAKES ON PRESIDENCY Hamilton livestock consultant Steve Cotton is the New Grassland Society of Southern Australia president, saying farmers should consider themselves first and foremost as grass growers. “Whether they’re sheep, beef or dairy farmers, it’s the pasture system that drives production and liveweight gains in animals,” Dr Cotton said. “It’s all about getting soil fertility right, growing the grass and then getting good utilisation of that grass.” Dr Cotton has had a long interest in pasture utilisation and achieving maximum livestock performance. He joined the society and became president of the Western District branch in 2012 and later joined the central committee. Dr Cotton was elected at the Grassland Society of Southern Australia’s annual general meeting at Nagambie on September 6 -7. He replaced South Australia’s Nick McBride, also from this region, as president.

When Ben Gaffney was 12 years old he went gliding with a family friend and that’s all it took – the teenager was determined to not only learn to fly but to make a career of it. “After that day I went gliding I was pretty much hooked,” Ben said. That led to starting flying lessons at Mount Gambier Airport based school Gambi Air. “I have been having lessons for a year and a half now,” Ben said. About once a fortnight, Ben heads out to the Mount Gambier Airport for his lessons, which usually see him in the air for about an hour. A huge milestone came for Ben (pictured above with instructor Tony Peters) a month ago when he took his first solo flight – an exhilarating experience. “It felt pretty good when I was back on the ground,” Ben said. “It meant I had done it successfully and got myself back. It


was exciting.” That was around a five minute flight and now Ben is working diligently towards his private licence with the next step being progressing to a restricted licence where he can carry one passenger. “I want to become a commercial pilot,” Ben said. Obviously flying lessons don’t come cheap and Ben is working at the family business – Lake City Transport – to help fund his future career path. An East Gambier footballer, Ben has represented Western Border and was co-captain of the Under 15 team and he has also played in the Glenelg country team that won the 2017 championship. But a stronger focus on his studies at Tenison Woods College is a focus as he knows attaining that pilot’s licence does take some theory work as well, which is less of a passion of the Year 9 student.


Get set to battle typhoons, trains and the furthest reaches of your imagination as part of an upcoming performance at the Portland Arts Centre. The Australian stage adaptation of Around the World the World in 80 Days will be hosted by the Portland Arts Centre this Wednesday at 7.30pm. This family friendly production, based on Jules Verne’s iconic novel of the same name, features well known Australian actor Ian Stenlake and Helpmann award winning actress Sharon Millerchip in leading roles. The show follows the story of the ambitious Phileas Flogg, who sets out to win an outrageous bet by circling the globe in an unheard-of 80 days. Flogg will have to battle time, the relentless Scotland Yard detectives at his heels and survive the utterly fantastic adventures across the globe to win the bet. Ellis Productions Producer Helen Ellis said the show would offer a thrilling and imaginative spin on the classic tale, transporting attendees to London and back from the comfort of their seats. “We are delighted to be producing the Australian premiere of this new adaptation of a classic story told in a completely unexpected way,” she said. “Audiences are going to be taken on an extraordinary trip around the globe without ever leaving the theatre. “Families in the Glenelg Shire are set for a night of comic surprises and adventure this Wednesday at the Portland Arts Centre. The cast and crew are looking forward to their next stop at Portland as part of their national tour.” Tickets are available for the Around the World in 80 Days performance via www. or by calling (03)5522 2263. Family packages are also available. Parents and families are advised that the show is recommended for children of ages seven and above.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - GOING TO THE CHAPEL... By ROBBIE TANSEL I’ve had people asking me the last few weeks what I think about changes to the definition of marriage in Australia and the plebiscite on this subject. The long and the short of it is, who cares what I think about it? I’m just one dumb guy and my opinion is no more valid than yours. I do think it’s a terrible waste of money making a decision in this way. This is money that could be used to actually improve life for the unemployed, elderly, homeless or even really underprivileged people like the residents of Nangwarry. I also object to the advertising I’ve started to see on my television trying to convince me and others to vote in a certain way. Isn’t the idea of this plebiscite to find out what people think? Let them have their own opinion. Can’t these people just let us make our minds up for ourselves? I think it’s wrong that someone is going to persuade me that their opinion is what matters. Especially when the ones I’ve seen so far present such flawed arguments. Let’s be honest, there are only two things to choose from in this vote so people should be able to figure it out for themselves. If anyone is looking to make a buck or two though, I’d be getting into the gay wedding industry as quick as I can. Something tells me that we’re going to be seeing a yes vote. I’m not exactly sure how they’re different to heterosexual weddings. Possibly all the guests have to eat a Gaytime icecream as part of their dessert? There’s a lot of stupid stuff with weddings so I’m not that attached to the idea of keeping them just for heterosexuals. Let’s start with the fact that people feel the need to spend tens of thousands of dollars inviting people to come and watch them putting rings on each other, kissing and signing their previously carefree single life away. Again, an interesting way to use money. One of the things I understand least about weddings is the amount of time and money that female guests spend on their appearance for the wedding. I understand the bride putting effort into her appearance. She is the focus of the day. Everyone will spend large chunks of time throughout the day staring at her, so she better look good. Get the hair done. Buy a fancy dress. Get someone to paint the nails. That makes sense. There will be hundreds of photos taken of the day that will decorate her walls for the rest of her life (or until

he does something dumb and she divorces him.) But why do the female guests need to waste money on making themselves look nice? It’s not about them. No one should be looking at them. The young lady can’t even see herself so she’ll get no satisfaction out of what she looks like. So essentially she is spending money thinking that it will improve other people’s days seeing how nice she’ll look. That’s got to be the definition of self-absorption. I think some young ladies even think that it would damage the bride’s day if her guests weren’t nicely

presented. I’m sure that some women think that if their friend is standing at the altar about to get married and spots them without their fake tan done, she might decide not to go through with the wedding because her day is no longer perfect. I hate to tell you this ladies, but the bride, every other woman, and all the men at the wedding would be just as happy with the day if you put your hair in a scrunchy quickly plastered on some makeup and grabbed a dress out of the six million you have in your wardrobe. I promise. Anyway, vote yes, vote no for the plebiscite. Please yourself.

I respect your right to have your own opinion as long as you present it in a respectful, polite fashion.

LOCAL CAFES ESTABLISH FUNDRAISING PROGRAM Two Limestone Coast cafes are embarking on a major fundraising drive over the next 12 months and they are hoping other businesses may well jump

on board, not just in this region but nationwide. Caffe Sabatini, in Millicent and Sabatini’s at Penola, both run by Olivia and Andy Gentile, are looking

to raise funds for 12 different charities over the next 12 months, with their campaign starting this month with finds raised set to go to the Variety Club. “We just wanted to give back to the community,” Andy (pictured) said. “We are focussing on a lot of children’s charities. Kids have no control over what happens to them.” One dollar from every dine in meal will go to each month’s nominated charity. “There are a lot of people in the community that are struggling from week to week, and a majority of those are children who don’t have any real control over their circumstance,” Andy said. “By including our customers in our fundraising efforts we feel that it’s a great way of helping those in our community who need it most.” Andy believes increased bookings at both cafes already reflect the community’s willingness to dig deep and both cafes are also taking donations over and above the dollar per meal commitment from customers who want to give even more. “We are also looking to get some more people on board, more restaurants and other businesses,” Andy said. “If we could get a program like this going nationwide it would be fantastic.” Choosing the Variety Club as its inaugural charity was a simple decision, given the Variety Club Bash has just come through this region. Variety provides support through grants for children and families for things like mobility equipment and

wheelchairs, medical items and services, communication devices and education aides, and therapy services. Founded in 1928, they have successfully established multiple annual fundraising events, including the Variety Bash, held in August, and the V2 Motorcycle Run to be run in October. This year the V2 will include a stopover in Penola on days two and three of the four day event. With meals being provided to the entrants by Sabatini’s of Penola during this time, they are planning to present a cheque from September’s fundraising efforts to the Variety team. Next month, the McGrath Foundation, which focusses on funding breast care nurses across Australia, will be the charity of choice. Other charities set to benefit over the next 12 months include Red Kite, Save The Children, Australian Red Cross, Royal

Flying Doctor Service, Beyond Blue, Starlight Children’s Foundation, St John Ambulance Australia, Guide Dogs SA/NT, Camp Quality, and The Smith Family. Olivia and Andy opened Millicent’s Caffe Sabatini in 2015 with Sabatini’s of Penola opening a year later. To help contribute to these worthy causes, simply book in for a meal at Caffe Sabatini Millicent by phoning (08)8733 2305 or Sabatini’s of Penola on (08)8737 2777. Other restaurants and businesses that are considering joining Olivia and Andy in their fundraising endeavours by offering the same incentive to their own customers and donating to the same charity each month can contact Andy on 0434 523 778 or email for more information.


Southern Grampians Shire children and families are encouraged to get active this October by taking part in VicHealth’s Walk to School program. The program encourages Victorian primary school kids to walk, ride or scoot to and from school throughout the month of October and build healthy habits for life. Council will work with local primary schools to deliver a range of activities encouraging more families to walk, ride or scoot to school thanks to a $10,000 grant from VicHealth. Last year 15 local schools participated in this great VicHealth initiative, and council is hoping to get 100% primary school involvement this year to make Walk to School bigger and better. | 24

of group identity and increased engagement within the local community.” Cr Rank said. “The program has empowered young leaders and provided them with opportunities to engage and advocate across community, education and sport.” Western Bulldogs Leadership Project graduate Courtney Ball said she walked away from the experience with a lot more leadership knowledge and skills that will assist her later in life. “I would 100 per cent recommend it to other,” Miss Ball said. “It takes a lot of commitment but is worth the time. I personally benefited from the program, as I learnt many new life skills and made new friends.” The program’s graduation ceremony was held last week.

SHAKESPEARE WITH A DIFFERENCE A funny thing happened to me on the way to the theatre this evening, Shakespeare’s greatest clowns – the rude mechanicals from A Midsummer Night’s Dream – take centrestage in this wild re-imagining of what might have happened offstage during the Bard’s most loved comedy. Perhaps the most famous group of amateur thespians of all time, the cast of the play-withina-play Pyramus and Thisbe, bumble their way through rehearsals, misadventures and sheer idiocy in an hysterically funny mix of verse, song and dance. The Popular Mechanicals, a State Theatre Company production, will appear at the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre on October 1. Contact the theatre box office to secure your seat.

SPORT AT A GLANCE BOWLS SEASON OFFICIALLY OPENED The Lower South East Bowls Association held its 2017/18 official opening on September 10 at the Millicent Bowling Club. More than 80 bowling members from various clubs throughout the South East attended to watch the presentations of all the championships and pennant winners for the past season. The season was officially declared open by John Drew, representing the Wattle Range District Council in the absence of Mayor Peter Gandolfi. Life Members Brian Cooper, Noel Allchurch and Janet Lawrie placed the mat, rolled the kitty and bowled the first bowl to set the start to another busy year. One game of ten ends followed with mixed teams and the winners were skippered by Dirk Pietersma (Millicent), Bob Cranwell (Mt Gambier), Peter Starick (Penola) and Rosemary Williams (Robe). The Lower South East Bowls Association competition starts in the first week of October.

NATIONAL SUCCESS FOR LOCAL SHOOTERS The Sporting Clays Australia Nationals were held over weekend of September 8-10, in Geraldton, Western Australia, and a small contingent of shooters from the South East competed. Two hundred targets were shot over the three days of competition, with challenging variable terrain, over eight grounds. Millicent’s Jeremy Kent shot 183/200 to finish sixth overall and only six targets behind the winner Brian Deadman (NZ) score of 189/200 Kent also qualified for the OSA Champion of Champions Shoot Off, competing against five top performers over the year from Queensland and Victoria. Shot on the Saturday evening on an Old Style Fitasc layout, Kent tied with two other competitors on 23/25 so the finale went to sudden death, where Kent (Ppictured above) held his nerve to win. Another top performance came from Kingston’s Jo Densley who became the A Grade National Champion with 180/200, in addition to finishing 13th overall. Densley matched it with some of the best sporting clay shooters in the country and was in contention all weekend with some very consistent scores. The South Australian State team finished third in the interstate competition with Jeremy Kent, Jo Densley and Janette Densley all representing the State with distinction. TOUCH FOOTY READY TO KICK OFF FOR ANOTHER SEASON Touch Footy is set to fire up again this summer. The Mount Gambier Touch Association (MGTA) committee has been hard at work in the off season to secure sponsorship and develop junior pathways.

SOUTH EAST VETERANS GOLF Thirty-seven veteran golfers made their way to Bordertown last week on a course a little worse for wear thanks to the recent wet weather. The nine holes being that were played, twice, however, were in excellent condition and the players really enjoyed it. The winners produced some good scores with the second division going to a countback on 43 points. The pseudo local, Trevor Pridham eventually got the nod from Russell Lingham, and third was Max Clifford, on 40. The first division went to the evergreen 87 year old, Roy Mitchell, on 40 points, from David Seymour, 39, and Arch Sunderland, 38. Roy’s playing partners were amazed at his consistent down the centre play, leading to his good result of 40 off a handicap of 21. John Howe again got hearest the pin on the 11th, but was usurped by Shane Will, who got the closest on the 17th. The sought after Ross Orchard trophy was won by John Shepherd and Kenny Milsop, who always seems to go home with something. The South East Golf Veterans Getaway week next year is being held at Loxton on April 15-2t. See Bruce for details. The next local event is at Penola on September 25.

It is safe to say when it comes to off road racing, it has always been about family for Garry Turnbull. He was introduced to it by his cousin and well known off road racing guru Murray England, he made it is number one motorsport because it was more family friendly, and he has competed with his wife and three daughters – Kim, Tamara and Sara – at some point over his 35 year career. In fact, son-in-law Christian Cella has even been in the buggy as co-driver. “I used to race speedway but it wasn’t as family friendly as off road and off road is something we have all done together,” Garry said. “At least it was still motor sport.” Of course, his off road racing career pre-dates his wedding, let alone the kids. “Karen (now wife) used to ride with me,” Garry said. I was in a smaller class – I raced the 1200 class.” He did race both speedway, where he was a stock rod driver, and off road, concurrently for some time and certainly financial considerations, as well as family soon ensured Garry had to make a choice – and off road won. “Kids came along, we were building houses, something had to give,” Garry said. The Pines Enduro had been going a couple of years before Garry first competed – he joined the popular event in the early 1980s and has been a mainstay of the competition ever since, watching it grow from mainly local drivers, to seeing a national field compete, including some international drivers. A member of the Millicent Sand Buggy Club, when Garry first tackled the Pines Enduro he was in a small buggy, graduating to the open class quickly though, as his success and passion for the sport grew. “I enjoyed the challenge of the longer races in off road racing – it’s more about endurance, you are racing four or five hundred kilometres,” Garry said. “But I definitely enjoyed both. Speedway was full on for a short time whereas in off road you had to pace yourself a little bit. Mind you the vehicles some of them have now it is more like a 400km sprint.” Like all motor sport, money has become a huge factor and some off road


teams are piloting half a million dollar machines. The unpredictability of off road is also appealing to Garry. “ Every lap changes,� Garry said. “As it gets more cars over it, the corners get chopped out, holes get deeper, every lap is different. I think it requires a lot more intense concentration.� As a two time winner, in 1990 and 2001, the Pines Enduro holds a special place in Garry’s heart. In fact, he is the last locally based driver to claim the title. “It has been good to see it attract more entries every year,� Garry said. Daughter Tamara will be his co-driver, which is basically a navigational role, in 2017, she has been by his side for the past few Pines events, and Garry believed a top 10 finish would represent a successful event for him. He finished sixth in 2016. “I don’t get to practice as much as I would like,� Garry said. “The best practice is race time, you just need to be doing a lot of races.� He stays relatively close to home as has most of his off road career, venturing as far as Griffith and enjoying some good success in the Riverland, as well as supporting other local events, including Moorex. “We’ve won Waikerie five times,� he said. One of those times was with daughter Sara by his side, although he has had one long standing partner in this journey that wasn’t related – Chris Proud. “Karen stopped competing when we had the girls,� Garry said. “Motor sport by its very nature is dangerous and we were reluctant to have us both being out there. So in between Karen giving it up and the girls being old enough to get involved, Chris and I did a lot of years together.� And proving Garry’s point that off road is a family friendly sport, Garry

has also had Chris’ son Tyson (pictured above with Garry) by his side during competition. And just like he developed a strong friendship with Chris, so he has with the other competing drivers he has met along the way.

“I’ve definitely made a lot of mates doing this,� Garry said. “Most events you go to there’s a set bunch that are always at that event.� And they are all looking to do the same thing. “You push it to the limit and hope you make it – you just want to be competitive,� Garry said. The Teagle Excavations ARB Pines Enduro 400 is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and the September 22-24 event is set to pay homage to those who started it all. The Sunday night presentation dinner at the Millicent Civic & Arts Centre will also have a nostalgic theme with guest speakers sharing their memories of events gone by. The current leader of the Off Road Series, Dale Martin, leads an all star cast for the 2017 event, that includes plenty of local faces with the likes of Greg Gartner, two time champion Garry Turnbull and Daniel Lamb. Just as important as the local drivers supporting the event, is the ongoing commitment from the Teagle family who allow the event to be run on their property, along with the support from One Forty One Plantations and Wattle Range Council, in terms of the host locations.

LOCAL SPORT COLLEGE IN CANADA A NO BRAINER FOR BRAIDEN When Braiden Ousey went to boarding school in Adelaide at Prince Alfred College football was the focus. That was in 2014 and almost four years later how things have changed. He is now in Canada on a four year basketball scholarship at Red Deer College in Alberta, where he will also be studying business – the degree he was originally set to take up in Adelaide before this incredible opportunity opened up. This college adventure all started when Braiden went on a school basketball trip to the United States. “A coach over there saw me play and asked me to come back,” he said. That led to Braiden spending this February to May in the States on the basketball court and from that four month audition he was offered the place at Red Deer College. Basketball has been a part of Braiden’s life for many years but in the early days it was nowhere near the serious pursuit it is now. He started playing as an eight or nine year old here in Mount Gambier. “It was nothing really serious,” he said. “I didn’t do Lakers or anything like that.” Then the family moved to Colac and suddenly it did become a bigger part of Braiden’s life as he started playing town team basketball at Under 14 and 16 level. “We moved back to Mount Gambier after four years and I did play Under 16 and Under 18 Lakers,” Braiden said. That also led to representing SA Country and in his final year of

Under 18s he was selected to play at the nationals. Of course football was also a significant part of his life but when he ventured to Prince Alfred College, he did still play basketball and the passion continued to grow. “Football for me is about who I’m playing with,” Braiden, who has been an integral part of the Kalangadoo Football Club for the past two seasons, said. “I am more drawn to basketball as a sport. When I was at Prince Alfred I was playing football in the morning and basketball in the afternoon. Until now I have always done both.” Preparations for his college adventure have been intense, with Braiden working side by side with Pioneers coach Richard Hill in some one on one skill sessions. “I also did some trainings with the Pioneers,” he said. “Training against the bigger bodies was really valuable. It helps you react faster and improve.” Braiden had already been to Canada to get set up in his share house and organise his classes, before returning home for some football finals, precious time with family and, of course, his girlfriend Sarah Croser. “It was a tough decision but we all knew this was the best option – it was almost a no-brainer, to get to do school and play basketball at the same time,” Braiden said. And he has already had a chance to touch base with his new team mates. “I did a couple of practices with the team while I was

there,” Braiden said. “I also did a couple of fitness tests and they all seem like really nice guys. It is definitely going to be really intense and they are all really motivated.” Braiden’s share house is a short walk from the college campus and while he is yet to meet them, there are a few Aussies at Red Deer College – no basketballers but some volleyballers. “Apparently they love Australian volleyball players,” he said. His schedule will see training four nights a week in terms of team sessions and then on top of that it is expected the players do at least two strength and conditioning sessions. Then there are one and sometimes multiple games over the weekend. “And from what I can tell, the guys do even more than that, catching up for scrimmage or running or something like that,” Braiden said. A Boston Celtics fan, Braiden is hopeful of getting to some NBA games, although Alberta is hardly on Boston’s doorstep. “But the guys say they do organise flights into LA and places like that and go to games,” he said. Classes started around a fortnight before Braiden arrived but he was ready to hit the ground running.

USED CAR SAFETY WARNING FROM RAA Consumers looking to buy a used car have plenty of safe vehicles to choose from, with at least one excellent performer in each category in the 2017 Used Car Safety Ratings guide. “This year’s guide examines 389 vehicles manufactured from 1982 to 2015 and identifies the models which offer better protection in a crash, not only for occupants, but for all road users,” said Mark Borlace, RAA Senior Manager Future Mobility. “These independent ratings indicate that a driver of the worst-rated vehicle is more than 10 times as likely to be killed or seriously injured in the same crash as a driver in the best-rated vehicle. The ratings also show that the average risk of death or serious injury to the driver in a crash in a 2015 car is nearly 50 per cent less than in a 1996 car.” At the top end of the ratings, 53 models scored excellent, with another 53 vehicles in the good category. “Medium and Large SUVs, Medium cars and People Movers all had a high proportion of vehicles in the excellent or good categories and a large number of Safer Picks,” said Mr Borlace. “This highlights the role that vehicle mass plays in the Used Car Safety Ratings, with vehicles heavier than the fleet average often exhibiting better occupant protection. It is also the case that larger, more expensive vehicles often have safety features fitted as standard.” RAA said it was crucial buyers realised that used cars were seldom as safe to drive as new models. “We would recommend that people stay away from the 113 models in the poor or very poor category and look towards the 36 vehicles that earned the coveted Safer Pick rating,” Mr Borlace said. “The 36 Safer Pick vehicles are the safest used cars for vehicle’s occupants, while also providing good protection for other road users in the event of a crash.” The used car safety ratings are based on reports from more than 7.5 million actual crashes from 1987-2015 reported to police in Australia and New Zealand. They cover more than 95 per cent of popular passenger and light commercial vehicles in the Australian market, manufactured between 1982 and 2015.
