COVER • NINTH RUNNING OF THE BLUE LAKE FUN RUN It is set to be run for the ninth time, with the 2018 One Forty One Plantations Blue Lake Fun Run hitting the streets of Mount Gambier on December 2. After medallions were presented in 2017 in lieu of a pre-race running singlet, organisers have opted to return to the running singlet, with each competitor receiving a singlet with their name, and, if relevant, team name, and, of course, entry number. The format of the community event, which sees proceeds returned to a variety of community groups and projects, remains the same, offering three distances – 3.2km, 6.8km & 10.4km – and providing options for the serious runner and the weekend walker. The event traditionally attracts more than 1000 competitors and organisers are again expecting those numbers, with individual entrants, as well as a raft of teams representing local gyms, businesses, schools, sporting clubs and community groups. Those following the history of the event would be all too aware that Warrnambool based middle distance runner Thomas Hynes is heading for a seventh straight title, having again smashed his own record in the past two years – bettering his mark by 45 seconds in 2016 and by a further 28 seconds last year. Nikki Smart has also been a dominant name on the women’s side of the 10.4km run with the Lucindale mother set for a third straight title, and fourth overall, if she tackles the Blue Lake course again on December 2. There could well be a

familiar face tackling the 6.8km course with Adelaide based runner Caitlin Dyer gunning for a third straight title and a fourth overall before she even turns 15. The other multiple winner, who will look to defend her title is Rosie Collins, who is staring a third successive 3.2km title if she lines up on the Bay Road start line. The defending 6.8km male champion is Stephen McKenzie, while in the 3.2km event it is Dylan Morton. Entries are now open and close on November 20, if you are hoping to secure a personalised running singlet, or November 28, as the final deadline. The usual day before pick up of race singlet and information, is on Saturday, December 1 on the library verandah between 10.30am and 1pm. The event is also proudly supported by SA Power Networks and is run by the Lakes Rotary Club of Mount Gambier.

FAMILY BUSINESS TAKES HOME TOP GONG
In a region known for its strong family businesses, it seems only fitting that the winner of the top gong at the 2018 National Australia Bank Outstanding Business Awards – the Outstanding Retail Business Award – would be a proud family operation, Carter’s Mount Gambier Foodland (pictured above). The Carter’s story began in 1989 with the purchase of Peterborough Foodland, with the Mount Gambier store opening almost three decades later in June last year. Employing more than 40 staff, Carter’s Mount Gambier Foodland has quickly become a customer favourite in the Mount Gambier retail community. But the night was about so much more than this new kid on the block, with the award presentation starting with the induction of three iconic Mount Gambier businesses into the Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame. Peter and Taffy Burchell’s diverse equipment hire business, Baxter Hire, respected financial services operation Galpin’s Accountants, and Ferrers Medical Clinic joined a host of other locally run enterprises that have stood the test of time. The Outstanding Employee of the Year is another prized gong on the evening, which was headlined by AFL great Kevin Sheedy as guest speaker, and it went to travel consultant Sarah Bannon, from Helloworld Travel (pictreud with boss Grant Horrigan). One of the awards scheme’s newer categories, Young Business Person of the Year, went the way of Commodore on the Park’s Tom Kosch, recognising not just his role in the family business

but his community work, including Pioneers Basketball Club president, a founding member of Tourism Mount Gambier, a supporter of the LifeChanger Foundation and a member of the Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group committee. As so often is the case at this business night of nights, awards go the way of plenty of familiar faces, as well as, exciting new talent from the city’s business landscape. Barry Maney Group took home the Outstanding Environment & Sustainability Award, the Outstanding New Business Award went to the Limestone Coast Pantry, Forestry SA and its ghost mushroom
project was adjudged the Outstanding Tourism/Hospitality/Accommodation Award winner, while the Outstanding Manufacturing/Building Industry Award went to Hall of Fame member NF McDonnell & Sons. The Outstanding Agribusiness Award went to Pine Ridge Honey, while the Outstanding Service Award went to Metro Bakery & Café, no stranger to the podium at this event, with the Outstanding Small Business Award going to F45 Training Mount Gambier and Hyland Fox Signs taking home the Outstanding Innovation Award.

90 YEARS YOUNG AND STILL GOING STRONG The Rotary Club of Mount Gambier has recently celebrated 90 years of service to the community with a celebratory dinner at Thyme on the Lakes on October 13. The Mount Gambier Rotary Club was chartered on the October 11, 1928, and the milestone celebrations attracted some distinguished guests including Rotary District Governor Anthony Ohlsen, Mount Gambier Mayor Andrew Lee and Grant Mayor Richard Sage. Current President of the Rotary Club of Mount Gambier Kathryn WeddellLucas spoke on behalf of the club at the gala dinner. “It is a great honour and privilege for me personally,” Kathryn said. “I am conscious of the fact that for 85 years a different club member has been president in each of those years. That is a great achievement as it has only been since then that a number of past presidents have had the honour and opportunity to be club president on a second occasion. This is the first time for me.” The Rotary Club of Mount Gambier an be proud of what it has achieved over the years and the contributions made by its current and former members and their families. “I want to say how lucky, we as a club have been, and continue to be as we receive such magnificent support from them and the general community,” Kathryn said. “In particular, I thank our two councils, the City of Mount Gambier & the District Council of Grant and members of the
other Rotary Clubs. As a club we have been able to work very closely with the Rotary Clubs of Mount Gambier West and Mount Gambier Lakes, thus enabling Rotary in this community to engage in projects which may have been otherwise too large for just one club.” When an organisation has been going 90 years, selecting highlights becomes difficult but the Rotary Club of Mount Gambier was proud of its sponsorship of a Naracoorte club (1951); Millicent club (1957); the Mount Gambier West club (1969) and joining forces with that club to sponsor the Mount Gambier Lakes Rotary Club (1988). The Rotary Club of Mount Gambier has also been behind sponsoring the establishment of the Mount Gambier Probus Club (1983) and, in conjunction with Rotary Club of Mount Gambier West, the Blue Lake

Probus Club (1988) and the Mount Gambier Ladies Probus Club (1989), which was also a collaborative effort. “Probably the proudest time for our Rotary Club has been in providing the opportunity for many people in this community to experience the Rotary journey through not only membership in our club but through those sponsorships,” Kathryn said. The Rotary Club of Mount Gambier also sponosored the establishment of , what was a vibrant Rotaract Club in 1971, and while that group has ceased to exist, there has been recent interest in restablishing, what amounts to a pathway club for young people into the Rotary fold. “None of this may have happened had it not been for the initiative of the then Board of Directors of the Rotary Club of Adelaide in sending just a few Rotarians to Mount Gambier on the 23rd of April 1928 to endeavour to form a Rotary Club here,”Kathryn said. The oldest member of the club, Neil Dickins, was unfortunately unable to attend the celebrations so a group of members took the celebration to him the next morning, right down to dressing in the same attire that they wore to the celebration in an effort to make Neil feel included. If you be interested in becoming a member of the Rotary Club of Mount Gambier, meetings are held every Wednesday in the Parlour Room at Macs Hotel. Members meet at 6pm for a 6.15pm start. Please feel free to come along or give President Kathryn a call on 0457 759 788 for more information.

This time last year Melena Roughana and a swag of her family and friends were in Adelaide. Melena was the headline act for the Adelaide Light the Night Leukaemia Foundation fundraising and awareness raising event, sharing her inspiring story after winning her battle with blood cancer as the event’s white lantern ambassador. Niece Ellyana Sims was also front and centre on that night, performing her original single Lena’s Song – a song the teenager wrote for her auntie during her battle with the insidious disease. Fast forward 12 months and the family double act is returning to the Light the Night podium, this time in their home town Mount Gambier, where celebrations, coordinated by Melena’s sister Aleathia Holland, will be ramped from previous years with a street closure and a raft of family friendly activities, entertainment and food and drinks on offer. The November 2 Light the Night event in Mount Gambier will be complemented by the raft of businesses being encouraged to jump on board and light up for the event in their shop windows. With the invaluable assistance of former event organiser Josephine Patzel, the 2018 committee is hoping to attract a large percentage of the community to the event, facing the added challenge of new arrangements in 2018, where those wanting a lantern for the night will need to pre-register at the Leukaemia Foundation website. When Josephine asked Aleathia to take on the Leukaemia Foundation event, there was no hesitation. “How can you not?” Aleathia said. “The research events like this finance are what saved
MOUNT GAMBIER SET TO LIGHT UP FOR LEUKAEMIA
Melena. If we didn’t raise funds there is no new research and that is what is saving lives.” Sister Katina Sims, who is part of the 2018 organising committee, also said the support services the fundraising finances was also critical, especially for regionally based patients. “You don’t know the difference that support makes until you are touched by it (blood cancer) by someone in your family,” she said. That support includes transport services, accommodation, petrol vouchers and hospital visits and Melena, who went through the tough treatment in Adelaide, away for most of the time from her husband James and two young daughters. “They do everything they can to make your life comfortable and there is always someone to talk to if needed,” she said. “They basically walk you through it. They tell you what to expect, what each step is in your treatment and they listen. You have so much time alone and it’s hard to process everything going on in your
situation,” Katina said. The November 2 event kicks off officially at 6pm in the Cave Gardens and surrounds with Jens Hotel and Metro Bakery and Café catering, entertainment from Ben Hood, Ellyana Sims and the Tenison Woods College ThunderClap Drum Corp, with a raft of other family activities including face painting on the program. One of the main messages from the Mount Gambier organisers is that the money raised absolutely helps local patients. “I always get a lot of comments about fundraising going to the city,” Melena said. “But it actually does go to regional patients who need the accommodation, the support services, the transport to appointments and of course the research, which helps everyone across the board.” So register now and your reserved lantern will be ready for you to pick up on the night at the event. head and you could easily give up and that’s why having these people by your side, in your corner is so important.” The three sisters all agree sharing stories is so important so people know they are not alone. “I remember when Melena was diagnosed and I was searching to find other young people in her

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - DATE NIGHT… By ROBBIE TANSEL Every now and then, Donna and I spend some time without our children Shaquille and Lebron. It’s not something we do often. We’re not the sort of parents who like farming out our children to other people, family or friends, to raise. We’ve always been of the attitude that if you decide to have kids, you really should be committing to spend some time with them. But every now and then we spend some time without the kids. Whenever it happens, it’s quite a bizarre experience. Generally if we have no kids, we’ll make an effort to go somewhere for a meal. Going out for a meal unaccompanied by kids is quite the unique experience when you’ve had kids for a while. It’s quite novel picking a venue without considering whether there is a playground or other mode of entertainment to keep the children occupied, or whether the meal will come with some crappy plastic piece of junk toy. Just imagine picking a restaurant based on the quality of the food. The meal experience is obviously significantly different. No one is eating with their mouth open. No one needs their meal cut for them. No one is trying to force an entire roast potato in their mouth. People are not whining about the fact they didn’t want whatever is on
lifestyle1.net | 24
their plate for tea. No one is asking to play games on your mobile phone. No one is negotiating how many scoops of peas they will eat. The only problem is, without any of those things happening at the table, what are you meant to do at the table? One option is to simply enjoy the quiet. The only problem is that while enjoying the solitude is the man’s preferred response, the female notices dead air and wants to fill it with incessant talking. The man is keen to enjoy something that doesn’t normally happen, while the woman thinks she’s a superhero villain and wants to start monologuing. Even Donna who has quite a love of talking does find it hard to fill the silence left without two little monsters sharing the table with us. It’s incredible how the
ability to have a reasonable conversation has totally disappeared. On our most recent outing without children we discussed what our driving lessons were like as teenagers, favourite vegetables, interesting shoelaces we’ve had during the years, and fonts that we really find disconcerting. One of the best things about having no children is eating a meal that is hot. With kids, you’ve had to spend time cutting the meal for them, arguing about whether they have to eat vegetables, picking something off that they think is a weird colour and is stopping them from eating the meal, even though it’s actually the most tasty part of the meal, before you pick up your own cutlery. By this stage, your own meal is ice cold. The other major difference at the dinner table sans children is that there is far less discussion of poo, wee, pops, and other bodily functions. It’s not just meals that are different without children though. We sometimes take advantage of the absence of children to wander through a shop. It’s really quite pleasant walking through a store without hearing the phrase, “Can I buy that?” four hundred and eighty times. The phrase, “This is boring,” is also heard significantly less. I’m not saying I don’t miss my children when they’re not around. There is no doubt they leave a void when they’re not present. I’m just saying, if I got the chance long term, I’d fill the void with sitting on the couch without getting asked repeatedly to come and play soccer. If you have children and share my pain, email me at robbietansel@gmail. com and we’ll start a support group or something.

met, but the early $2700 top price was also paid for both rams in the second last pen of the day. The 90 that sold averaged $1871. In the Poll Dorset flock ram drafts, the $2400 top was paid by Jason Win, Wannon Pastoral, Hensley Park, Vic; his only purchase. The White Suffolk top of $2700 was firstly paid by Graham and Sam Clothier. They were very selective targeting the elite of the elite, purchasing six of the very best White Suffolks at a $2317 average. The other two lots to make $2700 were paid by Frank Balkin, Devondale Family Trust, Glenthompson, Vic. He was strong in his bidding throughout, purchasing 13 White Suffolks at a $2146 average. The biggest volume buyer in the overall sale was Mark Bruce, Boonoonar Partners, Kingston. He purchased 16 Poll Dorsets to $2200, one White Suffolk and completed his buying with four Poll Merinos, these last five at bargain prices of $900 each. His 21 rams collectively averaged $1614. Dugald McLachlan, Nanwarry Pastoral Co, Nangwarry was also strong and consistent, selecting

In a fantastic vote of confidence in both the sheep industry and the Clothier family’s Woolumbool studs as preferred genetic suppliers, buyers pushed the average value for their 207 rams sold to $1901, up $345 on last year’s very good sale result. This was their 31st annual ram sale, but the first in a brand new shearing shed, so it was a fitting celebratory christening for this just completed facility. Blessed to be in a region not being seasonally challenged like many others this year, combined with lamb and sheep markets that have never been healthier, this sale gave the many regular buyers full confidence to bid up for these industry leading genetics. The 30 previous sales have given a majority of the 41 registered bidders in attendance knowledge on the predictable high performance levels they can achieve from Woolumbool Poll Dorset and White Suffolk rams, and now joined by Poll Merinos in this sale. The sale opened with the offering of four elite Poll Dorsets followed by seven elite White Suffolks, with big lifts in the top prices from last year’s modest levels of just $2800 and $2500 respectively. Mary Burzacott, of Beachport, bid to $5500 to secure W173594 for her family’s Mulgundawa Poll Dorset stud. In the top 10% for five Sheep Genetics Australia traits and three indices, highlighted by 221 Carcase Plus and 119 Lamb 2020 indices, it was a standout industry ram. She then added the next ram offered, the spring drop W173686 for $2600. She averaged $4050, with the four Elite Poll Dorsets averaging $3125. In the Elite White Suffolks, it was W173970 that attracted most pre-sale interest from seedstock breeders, resulting in strong bidding. Michael and Julie Osborne, Ryeview stud, at Millicent, won the day with a successful $7750 bid. Sired by Ella Matta 150097, this ram was also the paternal brother to the ram the Clothiers sold a $10,000 half share in early this year. Like Mary Burzacott, the Osbornes also picked up another for $2400 from this draft, their two averaging $5075. The switch to the two Poll Dorset and two White Suffolk alternating drafts of flock rams saw an increase in bidding competition. The first run of 40 White Suffolks was also very strong, with just a small drop down in activity in the second run of 53. Three White Suffolk rams failed to find buyers as requirements were
nine Poll Dorsets to $2200 and six White Suffolks to $2100, averaging $1853 for his 15 head. The Clothiers offer both assistance and genetics to the Lucindale Area School’s agricultural program, and also included four of their White Suffolk rams in this sale for the second year. These all sold at $1000 each, including two to McCarthy Livestock through Elders Lucindale, who was the only other buyer to purchase 10 or more rams. Their 10 White Suffolk purchases were secured at an exceptional value average of $1040, especially so in this very strong sale. The final draft of the day was the offering of 15 Poll Merinos. They were offered through the open auction ring for the first time, with last year’s inaugural offering of eight being via Helmsman auction. Twelve of the 15 found buyers, topping at $1500 and averaging $1033, in a very credible result. “It is certainly the best sale we’ve had and followed on from last year, which was also good,” Phil Clothier said. “A lot of our clients know how to read the breeding values these days and they do take a lot of notice of them, which certainly helps us. Our objective is to breed animals that suit the environment we live in. We don’t target large adult weights, but instead select animals that grow quickly, have plenty of muscle, adequate fat coverage, then of course combine that with the latest eating quality traits like shear force and intramuscular fat. These types also suit our clients, with many targeting trade weight lamb grids, while plenty of others successfully target export weights as well.”

FRINGE FUNDING IS MUSIC TO THE EARS The future of Mount Gambier’s Fringe Festival is assured following the State Government’s announcement they will commit $10,000 in funding towards the event for the next three years. Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell welcomed the news from Premier Steven Marshall, saying he has lobbied strongly for State Government support for the regional arts event.“This is great news for an event which has been actively supported by the Mount Gambier community and now has a bright future,” he said. “I wrote to the Premier personally on this matter and have raised the issue of funding several times in State Parliament in recent months. I’d like to congratulate the Premier, who is also the Minister for
Arts, for throwing his support behind Mount Gambier’s Fringe Festival.” The Premier’s office has confirmed the $10,000 in funding per year will be provided to Mount Gambier City Council through Country Arts SA. The South Australian Tourism Commission is also providing $10,000 towards the marketing of the 2019 Fringe Festival in Mount Gambier through the 2018-19 Regional Events and Festivals Program. Mr Bell said the Mount Gambier event, based on the successful Adelaide Fringe Festival, had gone from strength to strength since its first event in 2017. This year, the event kicked off with an open-air street party in the city streets and was followed by a week-long calendar of events at Mount Gambier venues.
“Fringe is an event which brings the city alive with music, comedy and performance art and brings a buzz to the streets of Mount Gambier each year,” Mr Bell said. “It not only brings a diverse range of performers to our city but showcases our thriving regional arts scene. Ongoing funding provides financial surety and means organisers can plan ahead with confidence.” Mr Bell encouraged the Limestone Coast region to get behind the 2019 event. “Whether you’re a business, an artist or just someone with an idea or concept for an event, there are so many ways to get involved,” he said. “Throw your support behind our regional arts scene and make Mount Gambier’s Fringe Festival a success for 2019 and into the future.”
PASIN SECURES FUNDING SO IT’S NOW UP TO US
“I was elected to go to Canberra and fight for my communities.” That was what Member for Barker Tony Pasin said in the aftermath of his announcement last Friday night that the Mount Gambier Community and Recreation Hub has progressed to stage two with a $15million commitment to the project secured by the local MP. Given the promised windfall is three times the size of any single funding received by the City of Mount Gambier, it is safe to say Mr Pasin has fulfilled his end of that deal for his home town. Of course, the ball is now in the community’s court. That $15million will only end up in the City of Mount Gambier coffers if the upcoming community poll indicates majority community support for the project. “The important message is I’ve secured $15million for the project if the community wishes to go ahead,” Mr Pasin said. “It really means the decision about this Federal Government funding lies with the community.” Mr Pasin has called on Mount Gambier City Council to promote the project. “This is the kind of infrastructure we’ve been waiting for in Mount Gambier for a very long time,” Mr Pasin said. “And that’s just the indoor aquatic centre. But with the six multi purpose courts and the provision of performance spaces with seating for 1800 people – this is transformative for Mount Gambier. It is infrastructure a city the size of Mount Gambier, the second largest city in South Australia, should have.” Mr Pasin understands that the community sees many areas, including health and education, where
that kind of money can be spent but was at pains to point out the purpose of the Federal Regional Growth Fund – it is for projects exactly like the Mount Gambier Community and Recreation Hub. “The Regional Development Fund is about developing infrastructure that provides opportunity for growth,” Mr Pasin said. “What has been holding Mount Gambier back from growth is a lack of the right kind of infrastructure and it is important people understand this fund is for certain types of projects. If it isn’t this project that is funded it will go to another community somewhere else in Australia for a similar project.” The Member for Barker believes the hub should be an equal share project between the Federal and State Government so if the community poll shows majority support, Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell will then be called into action to amp up his lobbying for a similar State Government windfall. “This (the federal funding) is fantastic news and I congratulate Tony (Pasin) on his efforts,” Mr Bell said. “There is still a long, long way to go. We need to obviously get through the council elections and then, as promised to everybody, a poll would be taken, and if that is favourable then I will start lobbying as hard as I can to the Premier and Liberal Government.” The State MP was not only impressed with his Federal colleague’s efforts to see the project progress from an expression of interest to stage two, but the work of council staff. “The staff at council really do need to be commended for the

speed at which they put the proposal together.” Mount Gambier City Council CEO Mark McShane also welcomed the announcement. “Council feels fortunate that its EOI was able to stand out in a very competitive field,” Mr McShane said. “Hundreds of applications submitted to the fund from regional cities and towns all over Australia are also vying for funds to improve their communities and boost their economy.” It was a well timed announcement for council, with the intermediate architectural designs, financial modelling and costings of, what looms as the largest single infrastructure project in the city’s history, also released late last week. Market research company Market Solutions has been appointed to conduct a postal survey of more than 19,000 electors within the city to gauge community support for the project to determine if it will proceed. The survey will include a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question and will be distributed in late November and close on December 21. “A community engagement program to inform the public about the proposed facility is scheduled to commence after the council election,” Mr McShane said. “We look forward to engaging with the community about the proposed project to ensure electors are fully informed about the project before voting.” Voting slips will be mechanically processed and council expects to receive the results by mid-January next year.

Former North Gambier footballer now West Coast Eagles listed player Matt Allen turned 21 last Thursday and arguably the best present he received was a one year contract extension with the reigning premiers, with a trigger clause for a second year. Playing for East Perth in the WAFL, Allen has had what experts have dubbed his best season since being AFL listed, at pick 62 in the 2015 draft, and moving west and experts predict he is destined for his AFL debut in 2019. Allen didn’t hurt his chances claiming the East Perth best & fairest in a three way tie, kicking 16 goals for the season, spending some time as an intercept marker in defence and also enjoying a late season move into the midfield. Breaking into a premiership line-u will be no mean feat but all indications are, Allen is on the radar and doing all the right things.
GRAPPLING CLUB MEMBERS BRING HOME MEDALS A small crew from the Mount Gambier Grappling club travelled to Adelaide to compete in the recent Grappling Industries competition. Michael Tinley competed in the intermediate 170 lb division, starting the day strongly and finishing his opponent in 24 second,s by guillotine choke, which was good enough for a top 10 quickest submission of the day, before losing a leg lock battle, and succumbing to his third opponent on points. Matthew Grubb competed in the davanced division and lost the final on points to bring home the silver, while Andy England, returning from injury, competed out of his weight class but made it through to the bronze medal match and brought home the medal in a points decision. The club is now headed to an AGC Submission Only Competition at the end of this month, with the hope of bringing more medals back to Mount Gambier. The Grappling Club is based at Margaret Street, Mount Gambier, and runs classes Monday to Saturday, and offers free trials to all newcomers, teaching wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts to kids and adults. Head to their facebook page for more details.

LSE PENNANT BOWLS
LOP SIDED BASEBALL SCORES South Indians faced off against Federal in the early game of Division 1 baseball at the weekend. Federal opened the scoring in the bottom of the first when lead off batter Kane McMillan singled to rightfield. Alex Reppin found himself at first after an error by the baseman, Dean Hamilton. McMillan scored on Wade Chant’s double to left field and Reppin scored on Sam Shepherd’s single to first base before the inning closed. South replied in the second with two runs of their own. Alex Lewis hit safely to right field and Travis Lockwood picked a walk. Lewis scored on a passed ball followed quickly by Lockwood, who crossed the plate on a pitchers baulk. The Demons added one more in the even second. Matt DeNys hit a two bagger into left field and scored on an error at third base from a solid hit by Alex fifth when they scored four more runs. Steve Isaccson doubled into leftfield and Bruce Morale picked a base on ball. Isaccson scored on a wild pitch while Morale crossed the plate on Hamilton’s single to left field. Alex Lewis then singled, also to left field and both he and Hamilton scored on Ryan Placucci’s single to shortstop. Federal, in the even fifth, added to their score when Clay Carpenter walked and scored on Shepherd’s sacrifice fly to centre field. The Indians finished off the game in the ninth by adding two more runs. Morale walked and scored on Lewis’ triple to right field and he subsequently scored on Travis Lockwood’s hit to second base giving South the win eight runs to four. For the victors, South picked up eleven safehits and four base on ball. Pitcher Morale pitched the full nine digs for five strike outs and only one walk. They made three fielding errors. Federal had nine safehits and only the single base on ball. The Demons used two pitchers, Wade Chant and Alex Reppin, for eight strike outs and four walks. Tigers returned to the winners circle with a resounding defeat of Central 11 runs to one. Tigers opened the scoring in the first putting pressure on Central from the get go. Brayden Morton singled and scored on Alex Harkness’ hit back to the pitcher. With two out, Brodie Foster singled and scored on brother Jesse’s hit to centre field. Dylan Lane singled, also to centrefield, Matt Thompson hit into an error at third base which scored Jesse Foster and Mitch Crosbie hit into another error at third base to score Thompson.

Tigers hit safely nine times, picked up seven strikeouts, four base on ball and only made a single error. Central had five safehits, picked up four strikeouts, five walks and made an horrendous seven errors.

THERE’S A NEW BULLDOG IN TOWN
SHEDS AND TRAILERS
TERMITE & PEST CONTROL
East Gambier has secured a huge coup heading into the 2019 South East Women’s Football season with former Glenelg Under 17 assistant coach Damian Delaney taking over the reins from the outgoing Peter Dempsey. If there is one thing the fledgling competition needs, especially with the influx of players new to the game, it is experienced development coaches to teach the sport’s basic skills, that are so important and Delaney brings that to the Bulldogs after learning the ropes at the SANFL club last season. It has seen East Gambier start its pre-season campaign this month so that groundwork can be paid and all players, continuing and new, are invited to the Monday night sessions from 5-6.30pm at McDonald Park – the home of East Gambier football. “It is a bit more like your traditional football pre-season,” club spokesman Nathan Stratford said. “The girls are training before Christmas and then through to the season start in February. We are really hoping this extra training will help the girls be up and about for the start of the season and be really competitive.” At the moment the club has seen interest from continuing and new players alike but is hoping to attract plenty more new faces, particular during this pre-Christmas period which is doubling as a come ‘n’ try. “We are looking for players of all ages but really looking for that 16-18 age bracket, those girls coming out of Under 12 and 14 footy that want somewhere to play,” Stratford said. Delaney’s return to Mount Gambier and the interest his three daughters – Jade, Neave, and Shae – have in pursuing Aussie Rules, has seen him dive right into the thick of the emerging female competition in this region. “If your kids are involved you get involved and I’ve always loved football,” Delaney said. “Someone has to put their hand up to give these girls the opportunity. Already this year almost half the girls have never played football and if you haven’t got those basic skills you can’t do your drills.” So it made sense for Delaney and the East football hierarchy to lay the ground work with some intensive skill development prior to Christmas before launching into a more drill and system based pre-season leading into the February season start. With the SAPSASA school sport program bringing girls football into the fold in 2019, the need to develop those basic skills should diminish over time as more girls take up the sport at a younger age and continue with it. Delaney’s family is a prime example of the diverse demographic female football is dealing with – oldest daughter Jade is a newcomer to football but brings with her elite skills from hockey and tennis, while middle daughter Neave has been playing since she was eight, the youngest, Shae, is following in her older sister’s footsteps and trying AFL on for size to see if it fits. If you are interested in seeing if football is for you head along to Mc Donald Park on Monday nights from 5-6.30pm and start developing your skills.
