COMING EVENTS

WOLF BLASS WINS TOP AWARDS AT LIMESTONE COAST WINE SHOW The 2015 Wolf Blass Gold Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon has won the Bill Redman Trophy for Best Wine of Show at the 2017 Limestone Coast Wine Show. The celebrated drop also collected the David Wynn Trophy for Best Red Wine of Show and the H.R. (Ron) Haselgrove Trophy for Best Cabernet Sauvignon at last night’s sell-out presentation feast held in Padthaway, with viticulturist Martin Wirper awarded the highly coveted Arthur Hoffmann Trophy for ‘Viticulturist of Best Wine of Show’. It’s the second time a Wolf Blass Gold Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon has taken top honours,

with the 2010 vintage dominating the 2012 Limestone Coast Wine Show. Chief of Judges, Jane Faulkner, declared that it “just screamed its region”: “There’s a lot to like with this cabernet sauvignon, from its vibrant fruit profile to its detailed tannins and above all, freshness,” she said. The 2017 show unearthed the broadest and most comprehensive list of trophy winners in the event’s 17-year history, with all 22 trophy categories awarded and all regions within the Limestone Coast represented. The 2017 Ottelia Mount Gambier Riesling won the Colin Kidd Trophy for Best White of Show, and the Karl Seppelt Trophy for Best White (excluding Chardonnay). Wrattonbully’s Malone Wines also celebrated a trophy double, with the 2014 Malone Cabernet Sauvignon named Best Individual Vineyard Wine, and the 2009 vintage collecting the Ewen Fergusson McBain Trophy for Best Museum Wine. Leconfield Wines’ double trophy haul featured the 2016 Leconfield Coonawarra Petit Verdot (Small Batch and Experimental Award) and the 2016 Leconfield Cabernet Franc (Best Alternative Red Varietal). “This wine is a knockout – it’s delicious - and it’s a really lovely modern example of a variety that has been around for a while,” said Jane Faulkner. Meanwhile, the Chief of Judges’ Wine to Watch was the 2016 Wangolina Lagrein made from grapes grown near Bordertown: “I was rapt that someone is making this Northern Italian variety; in the glass it has the most insane colour,

so obviously you get a bit seduced by this,” Jane Faulkner said. “It’s a very cool wine and I love the fact that someone is going out there and having a crack at it.”

WOLF BLASS WINS TOP AWARDS AT LIMESTONE COAST WINE SHOW FROM PAGE 3 Guest UK Judge, Sarah Ahmed, was also asked to select her favourite wine

out of the 496 entries, with the 2017 International Judges Award going to the 2017 Lost Ram Syrah by Robe’s Karatta

Wine Co: “This is a really aromatic, juicy, smashable wine with lovely complexity – it’s not out of the box or necessarily what you would expect, and it was a lovely surprise,” she said. Coastal producers had a strong showing in this year’s awards, with the 2016 Norfolk Rise Vineyard Shiraz winning the Eric Brand Trophy for Best Shiraz and the 2015 Woodsoak Wines Blanc de Noirs named Best Sparkling Wine. The Red Wine of Provenance Trophy, which provides a platform for exhibitors to enter three vintages of the same wine, was won by Coonawarra’s Redman Wines, with Redman Cabernet Sauvignon from 2014, 2009 and 2000 declared stand-outs. The White Wine of Provenance Trophy went to The Ladbroke Grove Wines Schoolhouse Riesling (2016, 2010 and 2005 vintages). Rounding out the trophy winners, the 2016 Brands Blockers Chardonnay was named Best Chardonnay, the 2016 Majella Merlot won the Peter Wehl Trophy for Best Merlot, the 2015 Lindemans Coonawarra Pyrus Red was named Best Blended Red, and the 2017 The Cellar Works Rose by Atlas Wines was Best Rose. The trophy for the Best Sweet Wine went to the 2016 Hollick Estates ‘The Nectar’ for the second year in a row, with consecutive vintages. A total of 306 medals were awarded at this year’s show, including 72 Gold, 92 Silver and 142 Bronze. Wynns Coonawarra Estate was named most successful exhibitor.

TEAM BUILDING PROGRAM FOR PRIMARY STUDENTS

Eight students from Portland South Primary School are participating in an Equine Team Building Program, thanks to funding from United Way Glenelg. The program is designed to build communication, confidence, self-esteem, resilience and life skills of children to further develop their problem solving and team building through contact with horses. Portland South Primary School principal Vicki Fisher said it was amazing, how by the end of the session, all groups had worked together to place a halter on their horse; without instruction, as well as brush and care for the horses. “The students are already looking forward to the next session,”said Mrs. Fisher. The Equine Team Building Program is held at the Cobboboonee Horse School and facilitated by Kelly Gannon who is a registered level 2 Equine specialist with EAGALA. United Way Glenelg Executive Officer Nicole Angelino said it was great to see Portland South Primary School looking for alternative programs rather than traditional approaches. “If students can be better engaged in the classroom environment, after gaining the confidence and skills through the Equine program it will improve their opportunities for improved higher education outcomes and employment opportunities.,” said, Ms Angelino. “Those donating to United Way Glenelg, through the Workplace Giving program, can be satisfied that their donation is making a difference to local children.” If you’re interested in starting a workplace giving program in your workplace please contact Nicole Angelino on 0410 513305 or mail@ unitedwayglenelg.com.au Above - Maddy Smith, age 11, and Browdy Smith, age 10.

NATIONAL SELECTION FOR LOCAL DUO Sarah McDowell and her border collie Cali have taken the next step in their remarkable career in the growing sport of agility with selection to represent Australia at the World Agility Open Championships. It is the ultimate in dog obedience that has a huge audience that tunes in to livestream competitions across the world. A teacher at Tenison Woods College by day, Sarah is a world class handler and Cali is a world class competitor, and an accumulation of their outstanding results. Sarah headed to the United Kingdom last year to perform a demonstration at the world’s largest dog show Crufts and in May next year, she and Cali will be heading to Europe again for their Australian team debut. “Agility is a rapidly growing sport around the world with thousands of people tunning in from all over the world to watch the live video stream for the large events such as this world championships),” Sarah said. “Dogs and handler navigate a course determined by the judge. The handler is giving a set amount of time to walk that course and learn which obstacles they need to do and in what order. The sport is rapidly becoming more about the speed and precision of getting around the course. The evolving handling techniques and online training with people from all over the world means that the sport progresses at a fast pace.” Sarah picked up the sport of agility quickly, thanks to her strong background in dog trials, and continues to train online with two of the world’s best handlers,

based in Canada. “The sport of agility is constantly evolving as courses become more complex and handling systems adapt to suit the course requirements,” Sarah said. Cali has been competing for three and a half years and has made the National Agility finals every year, culminating in this year’s taking out of the top title. “Training of my dogs starts from eight weeks of age, getting them de-sensitized to different noises and environments, meeting known vaccinated dogs with good temperaments, teaching the dog how to problem solve and shape the behaviours that they look for within the sport of agility,” she said. “Lots of focus is put into relationship building and making training fun and rewarding.” As with all regionally based sports stars, the financial aspect to competing at the highest level, and Sarah is hoping the local Mount Gambier community will get behind her and Cali and help raise some funds to go towards what looms as a $20,000 bill. Sarah is already grateful for the support from a raft of local businesses that have provided donations, mainly for raffles - Priceline, Hairhouse Warehouse, Mitre 10, Auto Pro, Autobarn, Weston’s Pet Haven, Gambier Vets, Muffin Break, Molten Cholate Cafe, 25 Acres, Priceline Pharmacy and Tenison Woods College. Anyone wanting to help Sarah and Cali achieve their dream of representing Australia can also donate at https:// www.gofundme.com/help-supportusworld-championships. Sarah also has organised an Animal First aid evening,

SURVEY RESULTS ARE IN

in conjunction with Gambier Vets, to boost her fundraising, and also because she is so passionate about animal care. The 90 minute session will be held on November 14, from 6.30-8pm, at Tenison Woods College, and costs $45. “At any point any of us could be faced with a situation while out walking our dogs around the lakes with snakes,

kangaroos kicking a dog or even something as simple as what would you do if your dog or cat was choking on some food while at home,” Sarah said. For more information on the Animal First Aid course email Sarah at mcdos@ tenison.catholic.edu.au Above - Sarah McDowell & Cali.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin has been inundated with surveys rolling in from across the electorate since its launch in June. “I have been overwhelmed by the number of constituents who have returned their surveys having their say on what is important to them,” Mr Pasin said. “I asked the constituents of Barker to tell me about the issues that matter to them and they have done that.” The survey results show an overwhelming number of people are concerned about their electricity prices, with 86 per cent of the surveys returned listing this as a major concern. 70 percent of people were worried about a carbon tax being re- introduced and 75 per cent are not in favour of paying more for electricity in the interests of reducing carbon emissions. According to the survey results health and hospitals were another theme that stood out across the electorate. “The Federal Government have just announced the first ever Rural Health Commissioner which is great news for Barker constituents,” Mr Pasin said. “We are committed to improving access to health services for everyone who calls regional, rural and remote Australia home. The appointment of our National Rural Health Commissioner is integral to achieving this outcome.” Other themes through-out the survey include: • 55 % of people want improved mobile phone coverage • 62 % of people believe reducing taxes and red tape on small businesses is the best way the Government can support job growth • 85 % of people are concerned about Australia’s level of deficit and debt • 89 % of people feel safe and secure in their neighbourhood • 79 % of people support drug testing welfare recipients • 65 % of people think local schools should be given greater autonomy to make decisions • 69 % of people support the Australian Government’s border protection measures • 85 % of people support measures to strip foreign fighters of Australian citizenship if they are dual nationals • 85 % of people believe State Government health and hospital funding needs to be significantly increased over time


ADELAIDE THUNDERBIRDS VISIT MOUNT GAMBIER

Adelaide Thunderbird new recruits Abigail Latu-Meafou and Kaitlyn Bryce were in Mount Gambier last week, promoting the upcoming 2018 Suncorp Super Netball competition and ensuring South Australian fans get to know two of the new faces in what will be a significantly revamped 2018 line-up for the SA based franchise. The duo was in town to run a coaching clinic, which was hosted by Netball SA partner HomeStart Finance, for a select few young netballers who were randomly selected following a nomination process. Abigail and Kaitlyn also visited Mount Gambier car dealership OGR, as part of its Mazda sponsorship, and it was an opportunity for staff and local netball fans to have morning tea with the star duo. Around 40 players were fortunate enough to run through a variety of skills and drills with Abigail and Kaitlyn, with the assistance of Mount Gambier Netball Association coaches. “As a young netball player I loved attending netball clinics. It was a chance to be active and learn new skills in the game I’m so passionate about,” Abigail said. “As an elite player I really enjoy coaching at clinics as I get to pass my netball knowledge on to younger players and to see their improvements over the session is great.” Above (from left) - OGR receptionist Eboni Smith; Thunderbird Kaitlyn Bryce; East Gambier junior Isabella Lamb; East Gambier Netball Club president Bronwyn McCallum; Thunderbird Abigail Latu-Meafou & OGR principal Bryce Roberts.

AT A GLANCE

COUNCILLORS HONOURED FOR LONG STANDING COMMUNITY SERVICE Glenelg Shire Council’s councillor’s Karen Stephens, Robert Halliday and Geoff White have been awarded for 60 collective years of council service at the Municipal Association of Victoria annual dinner in Melbourne. Cr Robert Halliday was awarded for 25 years of service, Cr Geoff White for 20 years and Cr Karen Stephens for 15 years of service. Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank congratulated the councillors for their tireless efforts serving the shire. “It is great to have councillors, passionate community members, who are dedicated to giving back to their community,” Cr Rank said. Cr Halliday (pictured above at the MAV Awards) has lived in Portland for almost seven decades and was elected to the Glenelg Shire Council in 2001, serving as Mayor for the 2014-15 term. Cr Halliday also served as Mayor with the City of Portland from 1985-1987. The former business owner also has an interest in waste reduction and has represented Council on the Barwon South West Waste and Resource Recovery Group for many years. Cr White (pictured above at the MAV awards) has

lived in Portland for 60 years and was elected to the Glenelg Shire Council in 1997, serving as Mayor for four terms. It is believed Cr White is the oldest serving councillor in Australia. He has held leadership positions in various community organisations, including his professional role as a senior staff member at the Port of Portland for 37 years. Casterton-based Cr Stephens (pictured below at the MAV awards) was elected to the Glenelg Shire Council in March 2002 and served as Mayor in 2004-05 and 2012-13. Cr Stephens is a founding member of the Casterton Kelpie Association and has spent many years developing the now nationally and internationally renowned Australian Kelpie Muster which is held on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend each June.

ART PROJECT IN THE SPOTLIGHT The District Council of Grant has recently secured funding through the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure’s ‘Places for People’ program to upgrade the Port MacDonnell foreshore, known as ‘The Waterfront’. A significant element of the Waterfront is the inclusion of public art installation(s) as part of Stage 1 of the project. Submissions have been narrowed to three and Council is now seeking feedback and opinions from the community on which one of the three proposed artworks they would like to see installed in the new Jetty

Plaza, as part of the ‘The Waterfront’ project. The submissions will be on public display at the Port MacDonnell Community Complex, 7 Charles Street Port MacDonnell, until voting closes on Friday 1 December 2017. Voting may be made in person at the Port MacDonnell Community Complex, or online at https://www.dcgrant.sa.gov. au/WaterfrontArtwork. The three options: • Barry the Barrel; a six metre tall breaching blue fin tuna made using recycled fishing dinghies submitted by Deon Howell from Millicent. • Lobster Fisherman; a life-size bronze figure of a fisherman returning from sea with a southern rock lobster submitted by Gillie and Marc, internationally acclaimed artists. • Seal Family; a collection of five seals carved in limestone ranging in height up to 1.7m and up to 2m in length by Sam Wass, a Mount Gambier artist. HISTORY IN FOCUS Large-scale black and white photographs from the Les Hill photographic collection have been installed on the empty walls of four buildings in the heart of the city as part of a project supported by the City of Mount Gambier Creative City Cultural Fund.

MAYOR’S CHRSITMAS APPEAL OFF & RUNNING Local businesses, community groups, families and individuals are encouraged to consider those less fortunate this festive season and donate to the 2017 Mount Gambier Community Mayor’s Christmas Appeal, which has a fundraising target of $28,000. City of Mount Gambier Mayor Andrew Lee officially launched the 2017 appeal at City Hall last Thursday in the presence of Uniting Care, ac.care, Lifeline SE, St Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army, who jointly distribute all donations through the Christmas Cheer program. “The appeal provides much needed support for a range of less fortunate, vulnerable or isolated members of the local community at Christmas,” Mayor Lee said. “Last year, the appeal directly assisted 584 families, 691 adults, 251 teenagers and 533 children with Christmas food hampers, vouchers or gifts.” All funds raised as part of the appeal are distributed within the local area, with demand for support greater than ever as the cost of living continues to rise. “Sadly the number of people

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - YES I’M STILL TALKING ABOUT CHINA.. By ROBBIE TANSEL I’m not sure if people are sick of me waffling on about China yet. I think you should all be thankful that you didn’t have to sit through me showing you all 1200 photos from my trip. Apologies to those who’ve already suffered through this experience. One of the interesting aspects of being in China was that we didn’t see the sun for the entire eleven days we were in the country. The level of smog and pollution in the air meant that at no point was it visible. Like most of us I’d heard about the pollution and smog issues but it was really quite unusual experiencing it for myself. Related to the smog issue, there were plenty of people we witnessed in China wearing the Michael Jackson face masks (that’s what I call them), presumably to protect them from the poor quality air. One of the most entertaining things I saw while in China was a person wearing a face mask while

smoking a cigarette. That is a person saying that they think that sucking in toxic chemicals is less harmful to them than breathing the air. The scary thing is, they may actually be right! I passive smoked dozens of packs of cigarettes while in China. They haven’t got the message about cigarettes being harmful yet. It might be worth the government unblocking that part of the internet. I indicated previously that I’m a very poor eater. I did take the opportunity whenever I could to sample western takeaway delivered Chinese style. Like most people I enjoy KFC chips immensely so I was pretty excited to sample Chinese KFC early in the trip. Boy was I let down (Australia KFC is still brilliant, by the way). Apart from eating the worst chips I think I’ve ever eaten in my life, KFC gave me a good indication of the Chinese attitude towards the environment. I ordered some chips and a Pepsi. The lady put the chips, that were in a cardboard box, into a paper bag, which

she then put in a plastic bag, and she put the drink in another plastic bag. By my reckoning that’s two unnecessary plastic bags. Probably an unnecessary paper bag too. I’m surprised they didn’t individually wrap each chip while stabbing baby seals. As frustrating as this was, it wasn’t the worst thing about the fast food restaurants. The Chinese don’t understand how to wait in line. While at KFC standing patiently as the next person in line to order, three Chinese people walked straight past me up to the counter to order. In Australia you might get the occasional rude person who would do this, but not three separate people. I guess, in a country of 1.4 billion people, there’s not really time to wait your turn. I ate a huge amount of rice while in China, which is something I would generally eat only once every five to ten years normally. The Chinese love rice so much that they have even created a breakfast cereal out of it that they

lifestyle1.net | 26

call Rice Bubbles. It is very much as described. Imagine pieces of rice being inflated. I ate some most mornings in China to ensure I was getting the full Chinese experience. Now if they just make it chocolate, I think they’ll really have something. Throughout our time in China we had a tour guide wherever we went. These tour guides were a wonderful source of useful and bizarre information. One of our guides explained to us the importance of names in Chinese culture. Her name meant “fish in a river with beautiful music playing.” Apparently Chinese parents will often consult with a fortune teller to come up with a name. She also explained how her brother’s name was changed recently (aged in his 30s) by her parents. Their mother said that the fortune teller had decided that his name was bringing him bad luck and the name was the reason he wasn’t married. The tour guide was apparently worried that her name would soon be changed as well. I really would thoroughly recommend that anyone who gets a chance should visit China. It is an amazing country, with an amazing history and culture, and definitely worth seeing. The way it is changing, I’m sure that it will be a completely different experience again in two years. It is an awesome country. If you’d like to help me trademark that chocolate flavoured rice bubbles idea, email me at robbietansel@gmail. com

PORTLAND LIBRARY ON THE MOVE

The Portland Library is preparing for a move into a new CBD home to make way for a major redevelopment at its current site which is due to begin next month. State Government funding of $300,000 and co contribution of Council funds will see the redevelopment include a refurbishment of the front counter, new meeting spaces, redesign of staff space, and creation of a dedicated space for creative play and programming for children, and teen chill out area. Glenelg Shire Council endorsed a nine month lease agreement for rental of 56 Percy Street, Portland – the former Chicken Feed premises – in the McIntyre Arcade complex which will become a temporary home for the library during the construction phase. The current Portland Library at 32 Bentinck Street, Portland will be closed from Thursday, November 2 – Sunday, November 5, and will reopen at 56 Percy Street on Monday, November 6. Glenelg Libraries manager Yvette Parker said the full suite of library services would still be available from the temporary CBD location. “All library services will be available from the site, although there will be some limitations with reduced computer access. However, our library users can still request the latest book, or join in any of the children’s and adult activities offered.” Ms Parker said the CBD location was fully accessible with free parking options on Saturday mornings and unmetered parking nearby. “Council is still seeking community input to help ensure the Portland Library redevelopment meets user expectations,” Ms Parker said. To view the Portland Library redevelopment plans or to submit your feedback online, please visit the Your Say Glenelg website at https://yoursay.glenelg.vic.gov.au. The redevelopment plans are also available for viewing in the foyer at the Portland Library at 32 Bentinck Street.

SUCCESS BUILT ON CUSTOMER SERVICE “The years have flown by but that’s what happens when you are doing what you absolutely love, every day,” Sharon Tuffnell said. The Bare Necessities Lingerie owner reflecting on what has already been five years in business as the store sets itself for its fifth anniversary celebrations. “We love nothing more than helping customers find the perfect lingerie for an outfit, special occasion, their favourite sport, or a comfortable everyday bra,” Sharon said. Growing in popularity, with a clientele stretching as far as Darwin and Brisbane, as well as a solid base in the Limestone Coast and Western Victoria, Sharon and her staff – Sheryn Wilson & Crystal Heazlewood – boast more than 60 years combined experience in the lingerie game. A well constructed marketing strategy combining the emergence of social media with the traditional forms of print and broadcast media, Bare Necessities is continuing to expand its customer base. Bare Necessities continues to stock a wide range of well known and trusted brands and is your one stop shop for all your lingerie, sleepwear and post surgical products. The latest addition to the range is Calvin Klein, opening the door to a younger clientele.

“We are listening to what our customers want, and we are always trying to stock the brands and styles that we are asked for,” Sharon said. “We are now stocking brands from around the world so we can offer a vast selection of sizes and styles.” Sharon, Sheryn and Crystal are all qualified fitting specialists and as it has been since the day Sharon first opened the doors of Bare Necessities, customer

service is the foundation of the business, both, in store and their regular visits to aged care facilities and clientele unable to attend the store with their in-home fitting service. “You want people to feel welcome and comfortable when they come into the store and it’s our job to make sure that happens,” Sharon said. Part of achieving that is ensuring all three staff members have a strong product knowledge of everything in

BARE NECESSITIES BEST BRA ADVICE “Statistics say that on average ladies have approximately nine bras in their wardrobe, including two or three basics, in nude or white, a black, a couple of colours, a lacy, a sports, and a strapless bra. “This, of course, varies with lifestyle and personal needs, but the minimum you should have is three - one on, one in the draw and one in the wash. “If you work on this principle and follow washing and care instructions, a bra should last from between nine months and two years.

About Humphrey Law In 1947 Sidney Humphrey and Albert Law formed a partnership to make socks in Australia, they built a factory at Heathmont, about 25 km east of Melbourne. Albert Law’s children Rob and Elizabeth now manage the business. From the beginning, Humphrey Law aimed to manufacture quality socks providing value for money. This has not changed. We make the best socks by using the best yarns – Fine Merino wool from Boorowa in NSW, Alpaca from Creswick Spinning Mills and Peru, and Nylon and Mercerised Cotton from reputable suppliers.

HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY Bare Necessities!

After 70 years making socks we are grateful for the continued support of those who buy them, knowing they are of high-quality and provide value for money.

“Our strongest advice is to only wear your bra for one to two days then hand wash it and hang it in the shade, ensuring the elastic and fabrics retain their shape. “We also recommend getting a fitting every 12 months as your body shape, weight and lifestyle changes over time. “ SHARON TUFFNELL

STUNNING VENUE FOR TRADITIONAL COUNTRY SHOW Rural shows are a time honoured tradition across this region, no matter how big or small the town hosting the event and the Casterton Show is no different. Now in its 149th year, Island Park is one of the more idyllic settings for a country show as the towering red gums frame all the action in the main oval and surrounds. Now in its second year, the Stockman’s Challenge is the headline act, with so much more on the line in 2017 with the Casterton event joining forces with the Coleraine P & A Society Show Stockman’s Challenge to form a series where the competitors are vying for a saddle worth $3000. Sponsorship from Ray White Keatley has made the new look Stockman’s Challenge possible and having it run as a series is generating real buzz. The other huge drawcard is the Bendigo Bank Youth Club that sees wall to wall family entertainment and activities. “There will be acts on the stage basically all day for entertainment,” Casterton P & A Society treasurer Sarah James said. “There is a magician, stilt walkers, a puppet show and animal nursery.” And even with 148 shows already under their belts, the current committee is all about

providing a traditional country show. “Our goal is to continue to provide a wide range of affordable family friendly entertainment and to give local business and community groups the opportunity to promote themselves,” Sarah said. “We are about hosting a traditional agricultural show.” The indoor pavilion hosts the usual arts and crafts, cooking and photography competitions and displays, while the yard dog championships is always a crowd pleaser, while on the livestock side of the program, sheep, cattle, poultry and wool are all part of the competition and judging schedule. Horses are also a huge part of the November 11 show, culminating a two day event that incorporates an interschool competition on November 10. Trade displays, market stalls and a wide range of catering ensures there is something to interest

everyone and the Tiny Tots and Showgirl competitions always create interest. The 3pm grand parade ensures you get a snapshot of every aspect of the show as all the competitors and exhibitors take to the main oval and there is also a range of show rides and show bags. The show, mainly due to a lack of volunteer personnel to organise the annual event, was in serious jeopardy five years ago but things are back on track and you can only imagine what will be in store for the 150th celebrations in 2018. “The P & A Society is looking forward to working in with more community groups in the future to develop mutually beneficial relationships,” Sarah said. The Casterton P & A Society is always looking for new members. Don’t forget to head to Island Park on Saturday, November 11, for a great day of family fun and entertainment.

AT A GLANCE (sale day) so we thank everyone for the confidence they have displayed in our sheep. It has been a wonderful ride, but we now leave the stud industry with no regrets,” Alan Schinckel said.

FINAL LEENALA SALE The Schinckel family closed 59 years of stud Poll Dorset breeding earlier this month with their final stage ewe dispersal and in the process may have set a new Poll Dorset ewe record. Alan and Lyn Schinckel penned 134 ewes, all 2016 drops, plus 12 ewe lambs “that were too good to leave home!” They were met with an enthusiastic gallery of potential buyers, with 24 from four states ultimately successful in their bidding efforts. Leenala 160102 Triplet sold for $6000 in what was the best result for the day, to the Kelly family, Zacman Poll Dorsets, Binnum. Samantha Kelly said they plan to AI the ewe for the 2018 lambing, possibly in an ideal match with Aberdeen 748, a ram with great growth and strong bone, and then ET the ewe after that. “She is so structurally correct and balanced, with great depth and muscling, plus she has the figures to match. She took my eye in Hamilton and I have been watching her ever since,” Samantha said. “We were a little blown away by the support today

Left - Pictured with the $6000 top priced ewe at the Leenala dispersal are buying agent David Heinrich, Landmark Naracoorte, Leenala principals Alan (holding ewe) and Lyn Schinckel, and Steve, Katherine and Samantha Kelly, Zacman stud, Binnum, SA.

COMBINED LEENALA AND WRATTENBULLIE SALE Saving the best until last could well be the catchcry of the final combined Leenala and Wrattenbullie Poll Dorset ram sale at Naracoorte Showgrounds on Monday afternoon. After 59 years of very successful Poll Dorset breeding and 35 years of annual sales the Schinckel family’s offering of 12 stud rams and 112 flock rams was their last, with their final ewe dispersal sale held in the morning of this sale. The Davies family of Rod, Gayle and Brad also offered an outstanding run of 2 stud and 95 flock rams, but will

continue next year on their own with an increased offering, but for Alan and Lyn Schinckel, their last sale probably produced their best ever result. The $9000 top price was achieved twice, firstly by lot 2, Leenala 160150Tw, sired by Hillcroft Farms 130497. Two lots later, Leenala 160092Tri, sired by Bruan 140081 also sold for $9000, with long term supporter Charlie Koch, Tallageira Pastoral being the successful purchaser. The Schinckel family donated the top flock ram sale price, $2700, to the Leukemia Foundation for research, having two close friends suffering the consequences of this disease. Left - Martin and Kirsty Flower, Morambro Pastoral, Frances are with Leenala’s Alan and Lyn Schinckel after they purchased the very last Poll Dorset ram to be offered by Leenala. The $2700 top flock ram price for this ram will be donated to the Leukemia Foundation. DETPA GROVE SALE For a sale that has prospered on the back of outstanding stud sales for a decade and a half, it was a change to see the often-overlooked commercial flock rams dominate to become the highlight section of this year’s Detpa Grove White Suffolk sheep sale at Jeparit. The Pipkorn family’s 29th annual sale achieved an overall sale gross very similar to last year, but with very different sectional results. The stud rams and ewes were down 35% on last year’s averages but the huge 32% lift

in flock ram average compensated for this. . All 144 flock rams sold from $1200 to $2100 and averaged an extremely strong $1621. This average was up $21 on the top price last year for flock rams. Below - Pictured with the two equal top priced rams at the Detpa Grove White Suffolk sale are Detpa Grove principal David Pipkorn, Jeparit, holding the ram on the right and purchasers Basil and Tim Jorgensen, Mertex stud, Antwerp and Andrew Saunders, Salamander stud, Horsham.

PEPPERTON SALE While Roger and Dianne Trewick’s meat sheep studs have just celebrated their silver anniversary since foundation, they have flown under the radar of most observers for far too long. They have certainly been recognised by the followers of elite performance levels through Lambplan, but to a majority of prime lamb producers Pepperton has been overlooked. In just their 3rd ‘annual sale’ earlier this month and their first actual conventional auction, held at the Elmore Field Days site, they made some giant steps towards wider recognition and justified reward.

Dale and Ruth Price, Marjadah stud, Glencoe, SA hooked in by phone and won the bidding duel with another phone bidder at $4000 to pick up the top priced Poll Dorset ram, Pepperton 160253. From the offering of 70 Poll Dorset rams, there was a 77% clearance with 46 averaging $1035. There were only 29 White Suffolk rams on offer and with the lesser numbers, competition was stronger, achieveing a higher clearance rate and average. Twenty seven sold to a $3750 top and averaged a very credible $1311. Two of these went to stud duties including the top priced ram. Below - The $4000 top priced Pepperton Poll Dorset ram is pictured in the sale ring at the Elmore Field Days site, with principal Roger Trewick (right) and Michael Glasser, GTSM controlling the bidding. The ram was purchased via phone hook-up by Dale & Ruth Price, Marjardah stud, Glencoe, SA.

LABOUR OF LOVE CREATES GARDEN PARADISE Barbara Lightbody loves working in her garden and just as well. The upkeep and maintenance of this farm paradise is significant at the best of times but leading in this week’s Open Garden SA’s opening of her pride and joy, the work is even more extensive, especially with the lead-in weather not being kind. The mowing and weeding alone are time consuming and that’s just the mundane jobs. Luckily Barbara does her best thinking on board the ride in mower she meticulously pilots around her garden – it is a two hour job each side to

do the roadside mowing and another four hours to ensure the entire garden area is manicured to perfection. “People think I’m mad mowing along the road but I just like it to look nice and tidy,” Barbara said. “I do all my thinking and planning on the lawnmower.” Barbara was eight when she started tending to her own garden plot and she has been planting, weeding, pruning and designing garden spaces ever since. “When I was growing up we barely left our family property,” she said. “Mum had a lovely garden people have always

commented that her garden could have been part of the Open Garden scheme.” Growing up in Allendale, Barbara’s mum gave her and her sister a small patch of their own. Barbara has certainly developed from tending to that six by eight foot patch to the three acres she looks after today. “I always loved it,” Barbara said. “I would plant things one weekend and then dig them up and move them the next.” It was a sign of things to come and Aberfoyle has also been a work in progress for the best part of five decades. It has been in the Lightbody family since 1927, when the late Gordon and Phyllis Lightbody took over the soldier settlement property and the original garden was a colourful and tidy country garden. It is basically loam over clay and limestone and Barbara, since calling Aberfoyle home in the 1960s, has worked her magic and created a stunning garden space with a focus on sustainability and recycling. And she has a secret army of helpers assisting her to combat some of a gardener’s fiercest enemies. “The guinea fowl control the beetles and earwigs and the ducks take care of the slugs and snails,” Barbara said.

One way you can tell the garden is a Barbara Lightbody creation is the single colour planning of her spaces – it has been a trademark of her garden design for decades. And while so much of the work is still done by hand by Barbara and husband Max, there have been some concessions over the years and in March this year a sprinkler system was installed. In fact it has been a year of firsts, with Barbara also trialling mulch for this first time in five decades as well. And it’s not just about the plants.

Some stunning historical features have been added over the years, including the small shed on the right as you enter the property, and more recently. Two single men’s quarters, Barbara sourced from Doug Finnis at Yahl. “We put doors on them, a new window and a little verandah,” she said. It adds character and talking points to the garden and that’s also what hew newly created pathway of pavers does. She rescued those from Carinya Gardens Cemetery when they started using a new style of headstone. “I just rang the cemetery and they said I could have as many of the old cement pavers as I wanted,” Barbara said. “They were only going to end up in landfill and some of the staff have come out to see what I did with them in creating a pathway near the old dairy.” Barbara loves sharing her garden with others and the Open Gardens scheme is a way to not only do that, but also raise funds for charity – her tally over the years sits at $24,000 before the October 28 to November 1 garden opening this year. “We really do have to thank those that have so generously offered their help over the years,” Barbara said. Adding the weekday openings to the 2017 schedule meant Barbara was inundated with bus trips from Boandik Lodge, both St Mary’s and Crouch Street, as well as Resthaven and Red Cross, and that’s outside of the individual visitors that always come to see the Kongorong oasis. With afternoon teas and Max’s plant stall, the chance to see Barbara’s garden at its best is a huge drawcard. Cont. opp. page


LABOUR OF LOVE CREATES GARDEN PARADISE

TEMPT THE TASTEBUDS

A GREEN THUMB’S GUIDED TOUR OF ABERFOYLE Aberfoyle Garden has been extended over the past years from a medium garden surrounded by a limestone and wrought iron fence to an open, easy access garden covering around three acres. Natural undulations are used to give the lawn contrast. The natural hollow at the ramp entrance to the garden has been edged with bluestone rock and filled with water to make a duck pond – one of Barbara’s favourite features in the garden. Corkscrew willows, lilies, iris, daffodils and other native flowers have been planted to add colour to this peaceful area. The Old Douglas pump is a feature in the pond, along with the ducks, of course. All garden beds are edged with flintstones taken from the property. Leading from the pond, to the left, are rose beds in apricot tones – Cubana, Just Joey and Peach Melba, with seaside daisy used to add colour to the border, as well as bulbs, shrubs, day lilies and lavender. Pergolas either side of the driveway have Albetine climbing rose covering them. Iceberg, French Lace, Seduction and Mother’s Love are growing below the climbers along with bulbs – Heuchera, Agapanthus and day lilies. In 1987, the silver birch trees were established and daffodils were added for spring colour a decade later, along with a bird bath and garden beds planted with lamb ears, cat mint and several varieties of Agapanthus. Ammarosa, Fresh Cream and Tamara roses were also added, along with Dutch Iris and bulbs, also with colour in mind to work in harmony with the annuals. A feature at the southern end of the tennis court are the silver birch and willow trees. Sheer Bliss and Fragrant Plum roses, as well as annuals, perennials and bulbs make this an interesting area with the northern end featuring a rose picking patch. The old phone booth, in its original state, has been moved up to the house and has been restored. Guinea fowl wander through the garden, along with Kuyga, Indian Runner and Khaki Campbell ducks. The flat area leading up to the swimming pool was originally a well used sawdust bowling green. The tennis court was laid around 65 years ago for family fun and now as Fee roses, daffodils and Candy Tuff around the perimeter. Violet Carson roses and carnations add colour to a small bed leading to the tennis court.

Wholegrain macaroni cheese 200g (2 cups) wholegrain pasta 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 garlic cloves, crushed 3 cups seasonal green vegetables (such as broccolini & Tuscan kale),

coarsely chopped 300g sour cream 100g parmesan cheese, grated 50g cheddar cheese, grated Shaved parmesan, extra, to serve

Method Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until just tender. Reduce heat to low. Add sour cream, parmesan and cheddar. Gently stir until just combined. Add pasta to pan and fold until combined. Remove from heat. Season. Divide among bowls and top with extra parmesan.

LABOUR OF LOVE CREATES GARDEN PARADISE FROM PAGE 35 The swimming pool was established after the Ash Wednesday fires and features in this area include willow myrtle and Judas, a waterfall with flintstones and a wide variety of low shrubs, roses and annuals to give natural effect. A large Irish Holly tree, planted in 1934, is the oldest tree in the garden and violets, Cineraria, Polyanthus, Fushcias and Oleander grow around the tree. The garden bed in front of the enclosed verandah has Iris, Agapanthus, Honour and Vanilla roses, plus annuals to colour the border. Leading around the northern side of the house is the original orchard. Dismantling the iron fence from the orchard area began in May 1997 and the garden beds were developed and planted through until the end of September that year. Apple, apricot, nectarine and plum trees have been planted along the fence area with strong winds taking out three old fruit trees more than a decade ago. Daffodils have been planted around the old fruit trees and among the garden beds, along with tulips and other bulbs. Florence, Fresh Cream, Greensleeves, Paradise, Lyn Anderson, Apricot Nectar, The Temptation, Sweet Sanato and other

roses have all been chosen for this area, with cat mint, Dianthus, Heuchera and seaside daisy adorning the borders. Wisteria grows over the pergola, as well as the shelter shed, built to display a collection of old tools and other items of interest. The small shed at the eastern end of the garden is for the bantams. In 2013, the sunroom was built on the northern side of the house and Blushing PierreDe Ronsard climbing roses climb the verandah posts. Apricot Nectar, along with Heuchera and small Irish Buff Beauty climbers cover the outside laundry. Crepscale and Sea Foam climbing roses have been sued to help cover the tank and an old tank has been added to store firewood. The garden continues behind the clothesline, winding down to the old cow shed, and was developed in 1995 with the fish pond as a feature. Leading back towards the house you will pass the silo, fowl house and plant nursery. This areas was revamped in 2013 with a new shed added. The small shed near the back door was originally used as a wood shed but was later converted into a playhouse for the children. Hanging baskets, shrubs and roses feature in this area. Pots of annuals add colour to the front verandah area

and there are Seafoam climbers on the verandah posts. Stepping stones lead past a blue spruce to the front beds, planted with Sylvia roses, lavender, rock roses and annuals. Near the hut, originally used as the boys’ sleepout, are roses, irises and

annuals. A photo display is nearby, showing development of the garden over the years. The Oleanders and Pittosporums area at the front were originally used as a vehicle turning area, however it has now been extended with roses and a mixture

of daffodils and other perennials. In March 1996, through to July that year, the shearing shed garden was established as a yellow, blue and white area. Lemon Sherbert, Marbella and Elina roses were planted, as well as a Heidesornmer sweeping rose and Gentiliana rose climbing over the arch of the shearing shed. Iris, daffodils and freesia give a splendid display in spring. The winding path was a 1999 addition with a Celeine Forestier rose planted over the arbour and Gold Bunny to climb up the old windmill stand. The pond area near the shearing shed was started in 1998 and completed just over a year later. The shed was built, as this is the perfect spot to admire the garden across the water. The two climbing roses chosen to highlight this feature are Twilight Glow and Juane Desprez. Day lilies and Louisiana Iris are prominent in this area of the garden. Red Twig Dogwood, Viburnum Davidii, Orange Blosso, and a Spirius Pear Tree have been added to form a canopy over the path, winding around the pond. Cat mint and seaside daisy make a formal border long the edge of the garden beds, which have been filled with Alstromeria, freesia, iris, daffodils, jonquils and Calla Lilies. The gazebo area was developed in 2001 with self seed silver birch and several hundred daffodils, Dutch iris and freesia. Wandering out through the gate takes you to the bulb area, developed in 2004, the same year the dovecote was built. Aberfoyle is available for weddings and other special occasions.

SMART RENOVATING Each series of The Block seems to inspire many of us to embark on a renovation project. Home improvement has almost become a national obsession. As each room on The Block is revealed it sparks DIY gusto across the nation, making even the novice do-it-yourself enthusiast think they are capable of renovating singlehandedly. It is hard not to feel apprehensive when initially beginning a home renovation, with the journey of dust and disorder ahead. The hard work will pay off; being heavily involved with a renovation project from the beginning makes the end result even more satisfying. From the onset be realistic, particularly with the timeframe and budget. Set objectives to ensure the renovation lives up to your expectations. Plan the renovation before the first trip to the hardware store. Before any major renovations begin, invest in a building inspection, which will highlight any serious issues from the outset. The budget should be broken down to include every anticipated expense. It is crucial to factor in a buffer to allow for any hidden costs or hiccups along the way – these can be costly. Any must-have luxury items with a hefty price tag are best kept as a separate line item. Anything unexpected that crops up along the renovation journey will be non-negotiable while the bespoke freestanding claw footbath can be revised. Getting quotes from professionals is advisable for any major expense. Opting for the lowest-priced quote is not the best method. The adage “you get what you pay for” springs to mind. However, remain realistic and stick within your financial means. Even for the meticulous planner who thinks they have thought of everything, curve balls always present. Renovations are disruptive – even for the meticulous planner who thinks they have thought of everything, curve balls always present. It is worth considering staging a major renovation, breaking the disorder into smaller, manageable

SMART RENOVATING sections. This will provide an element of normality to family life in between projects and is especially advisable when bathrooms and kitchens are tackled. Consider breaking your renovation into smaller, manageable sections. Before any major renovations begin, invest in a building inspection. Being prudent means you start the process with your eyes wide open: an inspection will highlight any serious issues, especially structural problems. Discovering a major structural problem halfway through a renovation can be costly as well as a heart-stopping moment. A home valuation is a worthwhile investment to determine the value of your home prior to any work; this will also provide insights on the improvements that could boost the property value. Overcapitalising is one of the biggest renovation pitfalls, but if you are renovating your “forever home” rather than selling, this might not be such an issue. Be realistic with your budget. A fresh coat of paint is a relatively inexpensive, yet effective way to transform a home. Also, don’t forget to celebrate your newly renovated home – throw a barbecue to show off your finished project and inspire your friends and family to do the same. Dr Nicola Powell - Domain Group

TEMPT THE TASTEBUDS

One pan balsamic chicken 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 600g chicken thigh fillets, trimmed, cut into 4cm pieces 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 medium red onion

1 green capsicum, thinly sliced 1 red capsicum, thinly sliced 1 cup dried risoni 400g can diced tomatoes 70g fetta cheese, crumbled 1/4 cup shredded fresh basil

Method Heat 1/2 the oil in a large heavy-based deep frying pan or flameproof casserole dish over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until browned. Add vinegar. Bring to the boil. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Heat remaining oil in same pan. Add garlic, onion and capsicum. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add risoni, tomatoes and 2 cups cold water. Bring to the boil. Return chicken mixture to pan. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes or until risoni is tender and chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with fetta and basil. Serve.

RENOVATING CHECKLIST 1. Don’t just dive in head first without a plan. 2. Don’t spend more than you have or more than you should. 3. Don’t worry about what your friends think if you love it. 4. Don’t please only yourself if you plan to sell your property within the next two years. 5. Don’t fall in love with one solution—there are always myriad options and plan B is often better than your first intention. 6. Don’t be timid—use your character and personality to inform decisions and commit to them wholeheartedly. It’s not the risks you take that you regret, it’s the chances you missed that keep you awake at night so just have faith, plan and commit to a bold solution that you are passionate about.

BELLINGER WINS LAKE BONNEY HIGH GUN On October 15, Lake Bonney Sporting Clays held it South West Freight 50 target event,with 78 shooters taking part. Steve Bellinger and Norm Smith put their hands up this month to set the course and were able to present an interesting combination of targets to keep the competition tight. High Gun was decided by a coin toss between AA shooter Danny Bellinger and Veteran Wayne Evans both finishing with a 44/50. The variation in the targets was enough to ensure that no-one was able to complete the course with a perfect 25. AA grade was strongly contested with Malcolm Whitehead proving that he is by no means going to be slowing down any time soon. Fabian Bigmore and Chris Wright also decided their positions by a toss of the coin with Fabian taking second and Chis third. Lake Bonney member Tom Weir had a good day out shooting 43/50 to win A grade ahead of Craig Hill and Matthew Jones. B grade had an interesting finish seeing three shooters having the same score at the end of the day. Karl Altschwager taking home first followed by Mick Brennan and Jon Prance. C grader Nigel Townley wasn’t fair behind them with a 37 for first in his grade, course setter Norm Smith happy with second and Somerset’s Alex Gordon third. Wayne Evans was three targets ahead of the veterans group while regular rivals Wayne Gurney and Neville Kent both shot 41. Ther was not much between the winners in Super Vets - Greg Todd 39, Barry Hill 38, and Peter Caskey 37. Tasha Bellinger, Kellie Peterson and Meagan Millard took home the prizes in ladies. Mason Patzel had a great day out shooting 38, giving grandfather Jon Prance a run for his money, for Juniors. While Declan Wright won Sub Juniors over Brodie VonStanke and Jeht Townley. Peter Sims rewarded the crowd with a display of precision shooting breaking all five flash targets to win the cash in the Flash Five competition. Lake Bonney’s next shoot is November 19 and will be the club championship shoot, followed by the AGM. All current members are encouraged to stay for the meeting and possibly consider joining the committee to ensure that the club continues to provide quality events for local shooters.

KENT TAKES OUT 75 TARGET SPORTING CLAYS Cool, dry and still weather created near perfect conditions for the 111 shooters that nominated for the South East Field & Game’s 75 target sporting clays event sponsored by GB/Corsivia, K & S Fuels, Spot On Fishing Tackle. Course Setter Ken Atkin set three semi old style grounds to test the shooter’s skill and concentration with shoot offs required in nearly all grades to determine podium positions. The experienced Ron Rhook tore out of the blocks with consecutive perfect 25 scores however after 75 targets there was a three way tie with Jeremy Kent and Scott McIntyre joining Rhook on 73/75, necessitating a shoot off which went to shooting simultaneous pairs which was won by Kent after he managed the rare feat of smashing the two crossing targets with one shot to take out The Gambier shooting supplies High Gun, leaving Rhook to claim AA grade from McIntyre and Danny Bellinger in third. Visiting Coleraine shooter Steven Crawford won A grade from Allan Cowin and Michael Brilley who also had to be separated by a shoot off. Skeet specialist Brian Spring made a welcome return the sporting clay scene with a B grade win from Charles Wallis who also won his shoot off over Gary Allison. Three C graders tied on 48/75 with a lengthy shoot off ensuing to determine the podium places with Neale Emmerson prevailing over Daniel Harradine & Matt Crook. Veterans was won by Wayne Gurney narrowly defeating Wayne Evans and Neville Kent, whilst in Super Veterans Barry Hill romped home by three targets over traditional sparring partners Greg Todd and Kevin Dyson. Tash Bellinger again dominated the Ladies class with both Tamara VonStanke and Janette Densley snapping at her heals with steady improvement. Max Crook won the juniors and it took a shoot off to separate sub juniors Declan Wright from Will Vickery and Shak VonStanke trailing close behind in third.

MAKING HER MARK IN THE WORLD OF RACING

Casterton based trainer Jessie Constantine found it tough going, working her way to gaining her trainer’s licence but when her first starter, on July 1 this year, was first past the winning post, training seemed like a pretty good caper.

It meant the rookie trainer finished the 2016/17 racing season with a 100 percent strike rate and while that has dropped off now, she is happy with how her career is developing and looking forward to finding her way back into the winner’s stall soon.

Jessie grew up around horses and her foray into the world of horse racing came as a direct result of that. “I started riding track work to pay for my show jumping when I was 18,” Jessie said. “It didn’t take long for the racing bug to bite and I was absolutely hooked.” Jessie knew two things – she wanted to be her own boss, and she wanted to work with horses so in the end, gaining her thoroughbred training licence was the logical next step – a step she took when she was 21. “My parents always encourage and support my wild ideas,” Jessie said. “Getting my licence involved literally blood, sweat and tears, it wasn’t an easy journey but at the end of the day it develops you into a great trainer.” Jessie’s love of horses dates back to a weekend at a friend’s place, where as a nine year old, she fell in love. “I needed a horse after that weekend and got an old ex-race horse, who I adored on loan from a local,” she said. That meant, of course, that she would one day have to part with her equine friend and when eventually it became clear this wasn’t just a stage, her parents stumped up for her first horse – a 14 hand, 14 year old stock horse. “The mare was given to us by a drover who had used our paddocks for a couple of night’s rest with his cattle,” Jessie said. “She is a far cry from the thoroughbreds I ride today but she’s still just as special.” Jessie is a very hands on trainer and she cites the support of her parents

PINE CITY TWIRLERS SET TO CELEBRATE

Pine City Twirlers, a Mount Gambier based square dancing club, is celebrating its 34th anniversary this weekend. Registrations have already been received from South Australia, Victoria & New South Wales. Callers from each of those States will take the microphone over the weekend. The celebrations run from Friday night until Monday with a weekend jam packed with dancing. For more information call Heather on 0405 107 524 or Roger on (08)8725 6364. lifestyle1.net | 47

and partner Stephen as the reason she has been able to throw everything into making her training career a success. She has settled into the routine of early mornings and late nights, as well as her afternoon job with a local thoroughbred stud. “There’s always another horse to be worked or fed, a box that needs cleaning or a fence to fix,” she said. “I also ride all my own horses.” Race days are a far cry from the race day experience most of us enjoy. While the punters are socialising, enjoying good food and wine and sometimes not even noticing the horses on track, for Jessie, it is a stressful time. “I haven’t got the old seasoned, ‘she’ll be right’ attitude just yet,” she said. Jessie is anywhere from one to five hours away from the track on race day, and, of course, race day or not, her other horses will need to be worked

and fed before they hit the road. Jessie cannot fault how she has been welcomed into the racing community. “Everyone has been fantastic,” she said. “I had a few friendships before getting my trainer’s licence but everyone has supported me the whole way through – it’s a great community in the racing game. We are there to win but at the end of the day we are happy to just have everyone, horses included, come home safe.” Jessie was granted her licence in May this year and then saddled up for that maiden victory on July 1. “It was the most surreal feeling,” she said. “He was just an old horse that needed some work to get him back to his best and he was on song for the day.” The victory was even more memorable as it was at Jessie’s home track – the Casterton racecourse. “Unfortunately I can’t train there as it’s not a training track so have to make the 40 minute trip to Hamilton to use as my training centre,” she said. “But to win on my home track was amazing.” Jessie has a handful of horses in work at the moment, a couple of pre-trainers and a couple to race. “I am happy with how my little stables are going and hope to get back in the winners stall soon.” Left - Jessie Constantine hard at work on the training track.

Four South East based bowlers have just returned from a successful stiung representing South Australia at the 2017 Australian Senior Sides Championships, which were held recently in the Yorke Peninsula. Naracoorte’s Peter Mueller was manager of the men’s championship winning team,. with Keith’s Geoff Hams a player in that team. Port MacDonnell’s Heather Richards and Bordertown’s Di Murch being part of the women’s team, which finished sixth. This event is a coveted event on the nation bowls calendar, and provides an exciting opportunity to 192 of the sport’s core audience to represent their respective States and Territories. The men’s team was unbeaten as they secured a maiden Australian Senior Sides title at the Moonta Memorial Bowls Club and Wallaroo Bowls Club. The host State won six and drew one of its matches to wrap up the tournament on the penultimate day, before closing with a 55-46 triumph over New South Wales. The victory was retribution for last year when the team narrowly finished runner-up. The victory followed the SA’s

this Friday night with the first of eight Friday night meetings. “We are hoping people will really embrace the Friday nights at the track,” president Phil Wood said. “People won’t have work the next day and it will be a great way to wind down and it is always a great night for the family.” The club is also looking to push the many social packages it has on offer and a night out with workmates or team mates at the trots might be just the ticket, especially as Christmas Show season kicks into gear. “We have a lot of packages on offer and can put something together to suit your needs,” Mr. Wood said. Early trials have shown local trainers, horses and drivers are all in good form in readiness for the 2017/18 season and interest from Victorian based stables is as strong as ever. The showcase event of the season is, as always, the Mount Gambier Gold Cup, with the heats set down for Friday, February 23, and the silverware decided on Saturday, March 3. “That is always a huge couple of weeks for us,” Mr. Wood said. The cup celebrations are always a great family night out but the club looks to cater for the kids all season long with activities including a jumping castle and face painting often on the agenda. “The on site catering is really good too,” Mr Wood said. “We have the best steak sandwiches in town.” For those who like a punt, Greenwald Paceway has betting facilities on site, as well as a fully stocked bar. So head along this Friday night and see what all the fuss is about. Gates open at 5.30pm with the first race kicking off at 6.50pm.

Last week, North Gambier’s Matt McInerney started the Barber Shield season in style with a century and this weekend, Jake Schutz took up the mantle, scoring an unbeaten 100 in North Gambier’s comprehensive win over East Gambier. Schutz combined with veteran Michael Johnston at the top of the order and the opening pairing carried their bats – Schutz with his century and Johnston with an unbeaten 91. It was an impressive day out for Johnston, who prior to his stylish 91 had showed his true all round capabilities, taking 5/11. West Gambier also showed it looms as the most likely challenger to the reigning Barber Shield champions, North, with Jake Blackwell falling three runs shy of a century and newly appointed skipper Niall Easterbrook, showing leadership agrees with him, taking 5/27 in the Roos’ victory against an

undermanned Penola. For the most part, round two saw the bowlers providing the highlights with Mil Lel’s Crouch Shield player Shannon Megaw taking 5/9 and Yahl’s Cox Bros Shield bowler Ben Gibbs also taking a bag, finishing the match with 5/8. Josh Doyle ensured the batsmen still had a strong say though, with an unbeaten Crouch Shield century – Doyle finishing on 102no. in his side’s comprehensive victory over East Gambier.

JORDYN ADAMS WINS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

Honoured for her success in both netball & basketball, Jordyn Adams has been awarded the 27th Trisha Flett & SallyJane Allen Sports Scholarship, becoming the 48th athlete to secure the memorial award. The scholarship fund was set up following a fundraiser, after the tragic deaths in a 1990 car accident of rising super stars, Trisha Flett and Sally-Jane Allen, which saw the community give generously to allow the two families to set up this memorial scholarship. Each year the nominations are assessed by a group of the region’s PE teachers and each year it is a tough task to choose a winner or in so many cases winners. There were 10 nominees for the 2017 scholarship and they certainly did not make the task easy for the 2017 panel of judges. Jordyn is no stranger to the tri-colours of South Australia, having represented SA at the 2016 15 & Under Netball Championships and also at the 2017 Under 18 national basketball championships. In fact, just this past weekend, she spent the entire weekend in Adelaide and Murray Bridge, flitting between 17 & Under State netball and Under 18 State basketball trials. Jordyn has a resume that includes both individual accolades, as well as team success, at club, association and regional level. Just this past netball season, she finished joint runner-up in the 17 & Under Western Border Netball Association best & fairest, taking out the club honour, as well as finishing joint runner-up in the South Gambier A grade best & fairest – she has been part of the Demons’ A Grade line up since 2015. In the past three

seasons, she has been part of Western Border SA Country championship winning teams at 15 and 17 & Under level and has enjoyed regional success as part of the South East Netball Academy. Jordyn has been part of the SA Country State basketball program and has enjoyed considerable success representing Mount Gambier as part of the Lakers program. “It is such an honour to be awarded this scholarship,” Jordyn said. “I want to really thank the players, as well as sponsors Sportscene and Squashbrook for their generosity and I know it will really help with what I am trying to achieve ion the next 12 months.” 2017 NOMINEES Jordyn Adams Rachel Curtis Hannah Elliott Charlotte Foote Shylah Fosdike Madisyn Freeman Kali Langley Jack Opperman Kaidyn Weber Kaylee Whitehead Above - Ian & Wendy Flett; Jordyn Adams and Rose & Chris Allen at the presentation of the 2017 Trisha Flett-Sally-Jane Allen Sports Scholarship.

WOMEN’S FOOTBALL LEAGUE SET TO EXPAND Following on from the success of the inaugural South East Women’s Football League, the 2018 season will not only see games added to the schedule but an expansion of clubs as well. South Gambier won the inaugural premiership, competing against East Gambier, West Gambier North Gambier and the All Stars. In 2018, the All Stars concept will be replaced by a side aligned with Glencoe Football Club, while Kalangadoo Football

Club and combined Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara teams have also been touted. The season will run 13 weeks, start in February, and include Friday night games, along with the Sunday fixturing that dominated the 2017 season. The league has also been rebranded as the Limestone Coast Women’s AFL and will continue to have significant administrative support from the Western Border Football League. lifestyle1.net | 51

Entries include drivers from within South Australia, as well as a large number of interstate competitors and the high level of is expected to provide some outstanding close racing. With a good number of local drivers, all hoping to use their home track knowledge to their advantage, meaning the on track competition should be fast and fierce. Racing is set to begin mid-morning, this Saturday and finals are scheduled for completion this Sunday afternoon. Entry is free for spectators and along with onsite catering means this is a great opportunity for Mount Gambier residents to come out and watch some grass roots racing, walk around the pits amongst the drivers and their machines and see what this rewarding sport has to offer.
