BOANDIK LODGE LONGEST LUNCH (FUNDRAISER) THE BARN PALAIS, OB FLAT November 18
SUPPORT FOR COMMUNITY CENTRE GAINING MOMENTUM The Community Wellbeing Centre, including a long awaitd hydrotherapy pool for Mount Gambier, to be built at Boandik
Lodge’s Lake Terrace East site is on track and moving forward. Council planning approval has been
received, design is complete, plans are locked for tenders, and tenders will be called in November, with construction to commence in January next year. “We are pleased with the way the project is progressing,” Boandik Lodge CEO Gillian McGinty said. “We have worked with a co-design group of staff and clients to develop the concept and detailed design. We are now looking forward to calling for tenders next month.” Boandik wishes to acknowledge and thank all those who have generously put forward financial and in-kind donations to build Mount Gambier’s hydrotherapy pool and Community Wellbeing Centre with that contribution currently sitting at $168,000. Since Boandik’s last announcement of community partners in July, the following businesses and individuals have been welcomed to the list. • Highgate Healthcare $5000 in-kind support • Alexander Symonds Pty Ltd $5000 in-kind support • ASW Lawyers $5000 • Gordon Refrigeration $5000 • Godrik Construction – Friswell Electrical $5000 • Benara Pastoral $1000 • SE Laundry Services $1500 • Andrew McLeods Fire Protection Pty Ltd $1500 • SE Funeral Services $1000 • Barney McCusker $1000 • JK’s Market $1000 • Heather Teakle $750 • Choices Flooring $700 • Wendy Monger and Don Currie $500 • SE Marquees, Wedding and Events $500 in-kind support • Non Mitchell $500 • Ann Johnstone $200 • Police Credit Union $1000 • Miller Whan and John $5000 per year for three years • Grace Gilmore $1000 With the project costing an estimated $4.8 million Boandik hopes to attract more contributions to help build the centre. “As an ageing population, we can all benefit from the facilities which will be on offer,” Ms McGinty said. “Whether it be the therapeutic and remedial benefits of the heated indoor hydrotherapy pool, or a focus on keeping fit in the over 50s gymnasium, or recovering from an ailment with the rehabilitation equipment, there are benefits for everyone.” Throught this fundraising period, Boandik officials have also made sure it is crystal clear that the hydrotherapy pool and associated facilities in the centre will be a community asset - not just for Boandik residents or the ageing. “The pool is open to the entire community and everyone can benefit from hydrotherapy,” Ms McGinty said. “Sports clubs can use hydrotherapy as part of their fitness and recovery programs; those with disabilities can access the pool for mobility benefits as it will have ramp access; and we all know it’s important to remain active so the gymnasium offers over 50s a relaxed and comfortable environment to exercise with like-minded people. This is not an exclusive Boandik project. Boandik has the land and some resources to offer at start-up, but seek others in our community

to also become involved – it’s a community centre.” Boandik’s community partnership program offers a variety of reciprocal benefits, including marketing and promotional opportunities for business and permanent acknowledgement in the centre of all donors and contributions with full details outlined in a brochure, which is available from Boandik. For those with a taste for the finer things in life, Boandik Lodge is hosting a fundraising event - the Longest Lunch - on Sunday, November 18. The degustation experience, which will include canapes and four courses, showcasing seasonal local produce and matched with wines, will be held at The Barn. Tickets are $150 a head and are limited to 100 tickets so don’t miss out. There will also be a silent auction of local wines and all monies raised will towards the Community Wellbeing Centre project,. To book your place call (08)8725 7377 or email email@example.com

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - RIGHT OF REPLY… By ROBBIE TANSEL You won’t believe it. Some idiot has gone and taught my son Shaquille to read. Obviously he’s been at school for a while now and I know they teach them stuff, but I thought reading was a special feature you had to pay extra for. I’m pretty sure I didn’t tick that box. What has brought about my concern about him reading is that last week I wrote an article about him. I indicated that I didn’t enjoy meal times with him and generally enjoyed any time I could without him around. It’s not that I don’t like him. It’s just that I don’t enjoy his company. Previously I could have gotten away with writing an article like that. In fact I’d done it on approximately eighty previous
occasions without any complaints at all. Let’s just hope that he never reads my book Village Idiot of the Year (still available from the fantastic folks at Collins Booksellers). I remember once describing his presence in my house as like being held as hostage by a terrorist. I stand by that comment by the way. Suddenly I have to be careful about what I write though because he wants to read the articles. Here’s the other thing that’s distressing about this scenario. Most kids think their dad is funny, even with all his Dad jokes, until they hit their teen years. Shaq is an early maturer in this area and has already decided that I’m funny. And contrary to what I was hoping, reading my articles has just confirmed his opinions. He actually told me that William McInnes writes funnier articles, but I think my mum told him to say that. The other concern with him being able to read is that we can’t spell things out anymore.
It’s useful as a parent to be able to keep secrets from your child, simply by spelling the key word of the sentence. You know, “I can’t believe Shaquille’s so S T U P I D.” “What are you saying, Dad?” “I said I can’t believe you’re so cute, Shaq. You moron.” Anyway, after my son read the things I wrote about him, I thought it was only fair that I give him the right of reply. And what I mean by that is he said he wouldn’t go to bed until I let him write something. o here it is. “Dad. You are complaining about eating tea with me. The five food groups aren’t chips, pizza, cake, chocolate, and lollies. If you eat vegies sometimes your clothes might fit you properly fatty. I saw you trying on your tight exercise clothes. They look funny because your legs are skinny but you’ve got a big fat tummy. And you should get some of the hair off your back and put it back on your head. You look weird.” And he thinks I’m not funny?! There’s nothing witty about what he came up with there. Well done school teaching him to read and write. But let’s be honest. There’s no point being literate if you’ve got nothing intelligent to say. He can read but he’s still ignorant. And he picks his nose. And his legs are like pipecleaners. And he’s so shiny that he glows in the dark. And his girlfriend’s name is Macie. How do you like me now, Shaq? I’m sure this reading thing might come in handy at some point. Shaq reading his own bedtime stories at night would be a good starting point. I’m sick of reading the same book over and over. What is it with kids reading the same book repeatedly
SOCCER STARS HOLDING TRIVIA NIGHT FUNDRAISER Eight Mount Gambier female soccer players have earnt the call up to the Regional Girls State Soccer Squad to compete at the upcoming Ultimagte Fiji Cup.

and still finding some enjoyment out of it? If I want mind numbing repetition that sucks the life out of me, I’ll go to work. If you know some way to untrain kids
to read, email me at robbietansel@gmail. com I preferred him when he couldn’t talk, let alone read.
Advertorial • Police Credit Union
SUPERIOR LOCAL SERVICE IS THE KEY
As the winner of the coveted Police Credit Union Branch of the Year Award three times in a row, the team at the Mount Gambier Police Credit Union branch are celebrating their recent win and are reflecting on how they have managed to be so successful. “We offer that personal touch – when Members come in, we can review their current finances and insurance in a warm and friendly environment. People are impressed when they realise that they can experience the service we offer AND could save thousands of dollars simply by switching their loans to Police Credit Union,” says Mary Clark, Mount Gambier’s Branch Manager who has been in her role for four years and has helped over 1,000 customers. Mary Clark knows that, “Being a local, greeting our Members by their name and understanding their needs is the real reason people move all their banking and insurance to us. They find switching to us easy as we handle the whole process and make personal visits to get the job done.” With six other branches vying for top place, the decision on which branch had the most outstanding
performance each year lies with the Executive Manager of Member Value and Distribution, Paul Modra. What makes a winning branch? The Mount Gambier branch has consistently proven that they are exceeding expectations on so many levels: • Their involvement with the community is commendable, with the branch supporting Bluelight, SAPOL Volunteer Program, Red Cross, multiple sporting clubs and ad hoc events specifically affecting the Mount Gambier and Limestone areas. • The service that they provide really is second to none. Each year, the results from the biannual Police Credit Union Member Survey prove that Mount Gambier branch Members are consistently satisfied. For the 2017/18 financial year, the branch achieved an outstanding average customer satisfaction rate of 96.4%. That number blows the Big Banks’ satisfaction rates out of the water! The Big Banks customer satisfaction rates have dipped as low as 78.5% in May 2018 in light of the Royal Commission. • They are always doing the best for their Members – helping them achieve
their financial goals is their number one priority and working towards their Members’ goals is the recipe to their success. With three trophies under their belt, can they make it a fourth in 2019 and be the most successful Police Credit Union branch ever?

The Millicent Skate Park was recently jam packed with the successful running of the YMCA/Skate Australia Skate Park Leagues competition in the region. The event was held over two days incorporating a volunteer training day, followed by a full day of competition for all ages on the Saturday. Supported by Wattle Range Council, more than 500 spectators and competitors witnessed a combination of skate, scooter and BMX events across several categories. Catering was provided by local service clubs. Wattle Range Council CEO Ben Gower said it was great to see the Millicent Skate Park full of people, young and old, taking in the days’ events in almost perfect weather. “As a result of the overall success of the event for all those involved, we’re certainly keen to follow it up with other similar events in the future,” Mr Gower said.

HISTORIC HOME ON THE MARKET After almost seven decades of creating untold family memories an iconic Mount Gambier home is on the market for this first time. The couple that built it in the early 1950s, Ric and Evelyn Arthur, have decided to downsize now that they are in their mid 90s. At 95 years of age Ric is undoubtedly one of Mount Gambier’s revered elders, having been awarded an OAM in 2016 for his volunteer work in and around the community in numerous capacities for more than 50 years. Sitting on a block of almost 2300 square metres, the property has just under 40 metres of frontage to Bay Road and a depth of almost 60 metres and is located in Mount Gambier’s most prestigious residential area. An iconic home, it is located half way up the Bay Road hill, only a five minute walk from the Blue Lake and crater lakes precinct and a 10 minute walk from the centre of town. Ric’s father, Garnet Arthur, bought the block and the adjacent one, in the early 1920s and constructed his family home “Colwyn” at No. 70 in 1925. Older brother Colin was to inherit the family photographic business, called Arthur and Son Photographers, from their father, and build his house on the block at No. 68 but after joining the RAAF he was killed while training in Canada in the early 1940s. Following Col’s death, Ric also volunteered to join the RAAF, much to the dismay of his parents, and was shipped off from Melbourne to the UK in May 1944. On the way the troop ship docked at Boston and Ric and his mates had two weeks of R&R in New York and New Jersey before heading to Europe. With good results at school, Ric had dreamed of being an architect, and was amazed by the
architectural styles he saw in Manhattan and neighbouring New Jersey, where they were billeted by local families. Ric joined Bomber Command as a Mosquito navigator and flew 44 missions over enemy territory in 627 Squadron before war’s end in May 1945. On return to Australia he took on the responsibility for the family business and shelved any idea for university studies. He’d also met and fallen in love with Ev while in England and was keen to entice her to join him in Mount Gambier, which she did, at the start of 1949. She recorded her initial impressions of the town in her diary. “I shall always remember my arrival in Mount Gambier in February 1949. It was a hot Saturday afternoon that we drove in from Melbourne along Commercial Street. I stared at the deserted street (not a soul in sight) and the strange verandahs and posts. I wondered if we had driven into a Hollywood Wild West movie set and expected the sheriff to ride up and tie his horse to one of the many verandah posts. Wild West? No. Mount Gambier – my future home!” Ev agreed to Ric’s marriage proposal and they commenced construction of their family home on the block adjacent to the house where Ric had grown up. They planted three oak trees next to the driveway and called their new home “Three Oaks”. Not having much money, like most people at that time, the couple built most of the house themselves, pouring concrete lintels and waterproofing the roof with molten bitumen. Ric had learned a bit of carpentry so that was put to good use. They had to use imported cement as the local product was off limits due to restrictions related to government building programs.
They employed a local stonemason to cut the locally quarried coralline limestone and use it to construct a double skinned cavity structure. The floor and roof joists were imported timber as the local timber had also been earmarked for government housing. The design concept was influenced by some of the modernist architecture styles Ric had observed during that stopover in the USA in 1944. The “Open U” design was Ric and Ev’s own idea however. They set the walls to suit the established trees that Ric’s father had planted on the block in the 1920s. The house wrapped around an enormous American timber walnut tree. A private patio area of “crazy concrete”
was laid within the “U” and itself wraps around the tree that now towers overhead, providing plentiful shade in summer while allowing the winter sun to penetrate. The outdoor patio was planned as the family’s entertainment hub for enjoying summer days and evenings. Hundreds of barbecues, parties and other celebrations including a family wedding reception, have been held on the patio and in the surrounding gardens over the decades. The front façade of the house was enhanced with curved walls on the north east and south east corners and matching curved plate glass windows. The windows were custom made in Melbourne by a specialty glazier. The layout ran counter to the trend of the time, with most homes having small windows and internal corridors, minimising the amount of light that could penetrate. Being mostly only one room wide, Three Oaks’ numerous large picture windows allow light to stream into the house while providing outstanding

views from the interior into the front and rear gardens. The ground floor features three metre ceilings and imported hardwood polished floors. The front door welcomes guests into a timber clad entrance hall with imposing timber stairway. A large L-shaped lounge and dining room leads to the spacious family kitchen with gas space heater. The custom designed open fireplace in the lounge features a sunken hearth, designed to allow air to flow under the floor boards and improve the combustion characteristics of the fire while removing drafts from the room. The chimney was set inwards as opposed to the norm of setting chimneys outwards so as to not spoil the clean lines of the front façade of the building. A corridor leads from the entrance hall to a large guest bedroom, guest bathroom with bath, shower and toilet and family/ music room. A double garage with slate floor is connected to the house, a common enough design feature in this day and age but somewhat novel in the 1950s, when most garages were located remotely from the house. Ric had noticed the trend to build connected garages in the USA, along with his first sighting of a remotely controlled garage door, something that would take a few decades to become commonplace in Australia and eventually be incorporated into his own house. The design allows direct access from the dining room and kitchen to the double garage. A rear porch, laundry and toilet adjoin the kitchen and garage. At the top of the staircase a corridor leads to the master bedroom that has sweeping views over the centre of town. A private ensuite with shower, wash basin and powder/dressing room, another novelty in the 1950s, and just one more feature that Ric noticed in the USA, is located adjacent to the master bedroom. Two additional bedrooms and a third bathroom with shower and toilet plus a sunroom complete the first floor. All upstairs rooms have panoramic views into the surrounding gardens. The extensive grounds and gardens include a large workshop, further paved entertainment areas, established trees and flower beds and a north facing limestonebased tennis court. The tennis court was added in the late 1960s and was used for numerous tennis matches over the years as well as for cricket practice, kicking the footy, learning to ride bikes, pushing go carts and numerous other childhood activities. Harking back to times past, there is a woodshed that once housed the family’s chicken coop, providing fresh eggs on a daily basis. Constructed during the challenging period following the second world war, this iconic home has been Ric and Ev’s residence since November 1952. Rejecting the convention of the time they built a home that was simply out of the ordinary. Despite post war restrictions on building materials that prohibited the use of local timber and cement, and a local judiciary that fined them 400 pounds and demanded they stop work for six months because “they hadn’t applied for a permit” Ric and Ev persevered with building their dream. The result speaks for itself. It still is out of the ordinary today! After almost 70 years the structure is as sound as it was on the first day of occupancy.
AT A GLANCE
CUP FEVER HITS PORTLAND Hundreds of race fans enjoyed spring racing fever in Portland earlier this month as part of the Lexus Melbourne Cup tour. Former Victorian chief steward Des Gleeson and Melbourne Cup ambassador Georgia Connolly entertained locals with the story of the iconic cup, which has weaved its way through a global itinerary stopping at 37 destinations en route to Flemington for the Spring Racing carnival. Mr Gleeson said the Lexus Melbourne Cup was something everyone can relate to sometime in their life. “It is the people of Australia’s race and it very pleasing to bring it to the community … you can see the pleasure it brings to people when they first receive it,” he said. Among the hundreds of revellers was Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said shire’s connection to the Melbourne Cup dated back to 1880 when Portlandborn jockey Tom Hales won on Grand Flaneur. “Our shire’s history with racing runs deep, as we are the home of Australia’s oldest remaining live hedge steeple race in Casterton,” Cr Rank said. She said council was grateful of the support of former Victorian Premier the Hon Denis Napthine and former Country Racing Victoria chairman and Victorian Racing Club committee member Robert Hunter who advocated on behalf of council to lure the cup visit. “This has been a magical day for racing fans in our community, and for many who travelled from afar, who were extremely excited to see and hold this iconic cup,” Cr Rank said. “The joy and excitement on the faces of residents at Portland Bupa and patients at Portland District Health was a delight to see. Des and Georgia were mobbed by eager fans at the boat ramp whilst the library was inundated with fans of all ages. The vision of the cup arriving by boat at our marina is attracting national media attention, further highlighting Portland, and indeed the broader Glenelg Shire, as a tourist destination.” To see more of the Lexus Melbourne Cup visit see council’s Facebook page.

CAMPERS TACKLE THE GREAT OUTDOORS Learning life skills has never been more fun at Cara’s Camps for Kids. Nine campers with disabilities stayed at the Karnkendi Campsite in Nelson for three nights in October. Campers enjoyed activities across the two night camp including bushwalks, kayaking, cooking, building tee-pees, an obstacle course and a jumping castle. Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Camps for Kids offers children and teens with disabilities the chance to learn, grow in their independence and, most importantly, have fun while they’re doing it. The camp was the second in the region after the inaugural South East Camps for Kids in April. Cara’s Camps for Kids are available for children with disabilities aged up to 18 and trained Cara staff are on hand to work with
SANDFORD ARTIST OPENS NEW EXHIBITION AT GALLERY 54 Julie Kent is an award-winning artist, known for her colourful, lively, soul lifting depictions of the world around her. She gains inspiration from her travels and her home in the leafy green village of Sandford in Victoria, where she now lives in a country cottage of character and charm of days gone by. Her exhibition of recent works was opened earlier this month at Gallery 54, in Penola. Visitors and friends enjoyed meeting with Julie (pictured) and talking with her about her work. Everyone refers to Julie as a bit of a gypsy and someone who loves her garden, quaint cottages and life in the bush so not surprisingly her latest exhibition is entitled Gypsies have their Secrets. It will be on show at Gallery 54 until Monday, November 26. Julie’s art reflects her love of the outdoors and plein air painting, which she sometimes enjoys
the campers.

A travel consultant, a hospitality guru, an iconic motor company, a foodie haven, a natural phenomenon, a timber giant, an artisan producer, an exercise revolution, an innovative signwriting business, a bustling café and a family owned and operated supermarket – that was the eclectic group of award winners from the 2018 NAB Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Business Awards. Add to that, the three Hall of Fame inductees – three long standing businesses that have helped shape the landscape of this city for decades. The inductees included Baxter Hire, a giant in equipment hire and at the cutting edge of the industry since opening its doors; Ferrers Medical Clinic, taking care of generations of families in Mount Gambier; and Galpins Accountants, securing the financial future of families and businesses across the district. The gala presentation evening honoured the three Hall of Fame inductees with special presentations outlining the history of the three iconic businesses and was also headlined by AFL great Kevin Sheedy, who wowed the crowd with his take on building success, principles that applied to not only football. The pre-dinner entertainment only added to the atmosphere of The Barn hosted event, with Lizzie Coke offering her usual vocal stylings as guests arrived. The two individual awards of the evening went to Sarah Bannon (Employee of the Year)
and Tom Kosch (Your Business Person of the Year). Sarah, a travel consultant with 20 years of experience, at Helloworld Travel has built a reputation as someone who always over delivers and her long list of loyal clients can all attest to her high standard of work, whether it be a flight for a business meeting or a round the world adventure. Tom, a second generation hospitality manager at the Commodore on the Park, has not only
looked to continually innovate and build on the business established by his parents in 1989, but is also a vibrant member of the community through the Pioneers Basketball Club and Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group. The Barry Maney Group are no strangers to the awards stage but this is the first time they have secured an accolade in the environment and sustainability stratosphere. Their commitment to sustainable initiative and best practice, especially with energy efficiency and value adding. Less than two years after she opened the doors of the Limestone Coast Pantry and breathed new life into the old woollen mills, Lynette McLachlan took home the Outstanding New Business Award. Focussing on local produce, home cooking and giving the region another venue for coffee and cake, take home meals and functions, the Limestone Coast Pantry has established itself as the perfect showcase for local producers. NF McDonnell & Sons is another 2018 award recipient that is no stranger to accolades with the Hall of Fame member taking out the Outstanding Manufacturing/Building Award, honoured not just for its more than seven decades in the local timber industry but also its strong commitment to the community, including sponsorship of the annual Mount Gambier Christmas Parade.

The Yahl based Pine Ridge Honey took home the 2018 Outstanding Agribusiness Award with the family run apiary not only seeing the family produce some delicious artisan honey but also provide critical pollination for the region’s crops. The Outstanding Service Award also went to a regular award recipient, not just at these local awards but on the State and national stage – Metro Bakery & Café. Set to celebrate a decade in business next November, Toni & Theo Vorenas and their team have become industry leaders in hospitality. Boutique fitness studio F45 Training has burst into the scene in Mount Gambier with Lisa Fyfe and her team exploding in the past 12 months since opening their doors, offering 32 sessions a week and growing from two to eight employees. The cutting edge technology being employed by long standing Mount Gambier signwriting business Hyland Fox Signs saw the industry leader honoured with the Outstanding Innovation Award, highlighted by a newly developed program that is the first of its kind in the industry. The major gong – Outstanding Retail Award – went to a relative newcomer to the Mount Gambier commercial landscape – Carter’s Foodland Mount Gambier. Opening its doors in June last year, the family run supermarket employs almost 40 staff that are there to ensure the shopping experience remains personal. Taking home the top award was a huge coup for the fledgling business that has already become a huge part of the local community.

RECORD HAULS AT LIMESTONE COAST WINE SHOW
A wine honouring the spirit and legacy of Australian shiraz pioneer George Wyndham was the big winner at this year’s Limestone Coast Wine Show. The 2016 George Wyndham ‘I Am George’ Shiraz Cabernet won the Bill Redman Trophy for Best Wine of Show at last night’s sell-out presentation feast in Naracoorte, after earlier winning Best Blended Red and the David Wynn Trophy for Best Red Wine of Show. Viticulturist Tim McCarthy (pictured far right being presented by Chris Jovanich) was awarded the highly coveted Arthur Hoffmann Trophy for ‘Viticulturist of Best Wine of Show’. Chief judge, Samantha Connew, proclaimed ‘I Am George’ “a seductive wine”. “There was just another level of complexity in this blend which earned it the top gong – lots of juicy, primary, bright berry fruit but with some structure and tannin to give it complexity and length,” she said. It was a triple trophy treat for DiGiorgio Family Wines after dominating the white classes. The 2017 DiGiorgio Family Wines Coonawarra Chardonnay won the Trophy for Best Chardonnay, and collected the Colin Kidd Trophy for Best White of Show. Judge Julian Langworthy praised the wine’s poise and complexity: “There’s great white wines in the Limestone Coast and this is a really complex and exciting wine to come from Coonawarra,” he said. Meanwhile, the 2018 DiGiorgio Family Wines Kongorong Riesling won the Karl Seppelt Trophy for Best White (excluding Chardonnay). Leconfield Wines took home two trophies for the second year in a row; the NV Leconfield Syn Rouge won Best Sparkling Wine and the 2018 Leconfield Coonawarra Rose claimed Best Rose. St Hugo also had a double haul, with the 2015 St Hugo Vetus Purum Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon named Best Individual Vineyard Wine, and the 2010 vintage of the same wine winning the Ewen Fergusson McBain Trophy for Best Museum Wine. The highly anticipated Provenance Trophies, which provide a platform for exhibitors to enter three vintages of the same wine, went to Raidis Estate’s ‘The Kid’ Riesling (2018, 2010, 2008) and a trio of Wynns Coonawarra Estate Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon (2015, 2010, 2005). The 2015 Jacaranda Ridge Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon won the H.R. (Ron) Haselgrove Trophy for Best Cabernet Sauvignon, with cabernet also capturing the attention of New Zealand judge, Sam Kim, who gave the International Judges’ Award to the 2016 Black Wattle Vineyards Mt Benson Cabernet Sauvignon. “It had that amazing fruit purity and intensity without being overblown,” he said. “Beautifully composed, seamless with terrific length – the complete package for me.” The Chief of Judges Wine to Watch was the 2017 Norfolk Rise Estate Shiraz, with Samantha Connew dubbing it “a really modern interpretation of Australian Shiraz with beautiful slurpy fruit.” Rounding out the trophy winners, the 2016 Petaluma Merlot won the Peter Wehl Trophy for Best Merlot, the 2016 Berrigan Shiraz won the Eric Brand Trophy for Best Shiraz, the 2018 Bellwether Ant Series Wrattonbully Barbera won the Small Batch and Experimental Wines Award, and the 2018 Penley Estate Spring Release Cab Franc was the Best Alternative Red Variety. A record-high 338 medals were awarded at the 18th annual show, including 43 Gold, 110 Silver and 185 Bronze. Orlando Wines was named most successful exhibitor.

ANDEN DEFIES SEASONAL CHALLENGES Just two years ago the Victorian Mallee region was wet and lush, but it is a stark contrast this year. Despite that dramatic change of seasonal conditions, the Donnan family, Anden sheep studs, Woomelang, achieved a very good result at their three breed, 23rd annual sale arlier this month. They sold 185 head of rams and ewes in an 87% clearance, to a top of $9500 and averaged an extremely solid $1414. With the big dry meaning crops north of Warracknabeal are now virtually nonexistent, and many below now being cut for hay, there is a sombre but resilient mood in the region, with finances very tight. However, the saving grace for the Donnans was that the prospects of good income from a lamb drop is considerably higher than from a grain crop this year. It is quite probably for this reason, combined with the long-earnt reputation of the Anden elite performance genetics, in being able to produce lambs with rapid growth and exceptional muscling, that brought so many of their regular client base back to this sale again this year. There were 54 registered bidders from four States in attendance, plus others connected through the Auctions Plus network. Forty-one of them were successful in their buying endeavours, on either the stud White Suffolk and Suffolk
rams and ewes, the White Suffolk flock rams, or the relatively new Ultra White rams. The top price was a somewhat modest, but still significant $9500 for Anden 170045, the first of the 22 specially selected White Suffolk rams. Sired by Langley Heights 090160, this very impressive and stylish late May drop was supported by exceptional Lambplan EBV figures, including 18.19 for post weaning weight, -0.67 for fat, 1.06 for eye muscle depth, culminating in a carcase plus index of 205.83. The successful bidders were Nick Cheetham, Cheetara stud, Narembeen, WA and Brenton Fairclough, Stockdale stud, York, WA in partnership. . Anden’s first son of their recordbreaking sire, ‘Cruiser’ 150277 that sold two years ago for $68,000, was next to grace the sale ring. A170046 was used over many ewes in the stud as a ram lamb with his progeny showing exceptional promise. A post weaning weight EBV of 16.22, an eye muscle EBV of 1.90 and carcase plus index of 204.91 only added to its appeal. Consequently, Paul and Peter Routley, Almondvale stud, Lockhart, NSW and accompanied by Paul’s children Lachlan and Grace, couldn’t believe their luck in being able to purchase this much-admired ram for lifestyle1.net | 32

just $9000. The draft of 22, with Lambplan C+ indices up to 232.12 and averaging 210.71, sold for an extremely good value average of $3145, with 18 going to stud buyers. The wide choice of top-quality rams enabled most to pick up new sires against limited bidding competition, hence that value. “In a tough season, things always tighten up a bit, but it was a good result,” senior principal Andrew Donnan said. “Most went to studs which is good, but we are happy those buyers who have kept coming back have got very good rams, and at that value will hopefully keep coming back.” The highlight of the sale was undoubtedly the 81 strong White Suffolk flock ram draft, which demonstrated the resilience of the local region’s lamb producers. The stud principals and the Elders sale agents put in a lot of effort to assist these producers in their buying needs, and 23 bidders were successful in purchasing from one to 11 rams each,
these topping at $2000 and averaging $1280. Against a downward trend, this was actually up $45 on last year. In explaining the strength of that competition, Elders Birchip’s Shane McLoughlan said there were a lot of repeat buyers as it is very seldom that they miss out on a decent price with their stock, and in years like this there is very little expense compared with a cropping program. “There is no doubt this Anden set up is a centrepiece in the local lamb industry,” he said. “You can see the fruits of it in the lambs being produced. Even in this year we have had good suckers get away under very trying conditions.” In summing up the whole sale, Anden’s Joel Donnan said it was a very good day right through in these conditions. “It was good to have clients asking our recommendations on the most suitable rams for what they are trying to do in their breeding programs,” he said. “When they are wanting to do better, we like to set them up with the right rams for the right job.” Above - Pictured with Anden 170045, the $9500 top priced ram at the Donnan family’s annual sale are Jono Sutherland, Elders Bendigo; Joel Donnan, and joint WA purchasers, Nick Cheetham, Cheetara stud, Narembeen, and Brenton Fairclough, Stockdale stud, York.
LOCAL SPORT BATTERS ENJOY A DAY OUT In the first of two Division 1 baseball games at Blue Lake Sports Park Federal were victorious over Central seven runs to six.

Alex Lewis’ safehit to leftfield. Travis Lockwood hit safely into rightfield scoring Bruce Morale. Lewis scored the fourth run of the dig when Jesse Balshaw laid down a sacrifice bunt to the pitcher giving South a six run to four advantage. Brayden Morton scored Tigers fifth run in the next inning after singling to right field and eventually scored on a wild throw to the plate from shortstop Alex Lewis. The score remained that way until the top of the ninth when Tigers bats exploded with seven safehits and six runs. Lead-off batter Brodie Foster got on board after another wild throw from Alex Lewis and Karl Ransom picked a walk. They both scored from Jesse Foster’s cracking hit to centrefield. He scored on Dyllan Lane’s single to centrefield. Matt Thompson singled as did Brayden Morton. Lane crossed the plate on Tyler Horrigan’s safehit to second base and then Thompson and Morton scored on Brodie Foster’s hit to centrefield. The Indians did not have an answer in their turn at bat giving Tigers the win eleven runs to six. Tigers had eighteen safehits, two base on ball, one hit batter, eight strikeouts and made just one error. South had sixteen safehits, two base on ball, one hit batter, seven strikeouts and made four errors.

SOUTH EAST VETERANS GOLF TACKLE PENOLA COURSE There were 65 players at Penola on a warm day, and they all found the greens tricky at the most reent South East Golf Veterans event. After the top half dozen cards the scores fell away very quickly to the high twenties. First Division was won by David Seymour on a countback from Ken Dancey, both having 40 points, then third was Brian Duldig with 38. Second division was won by the 400 gamer, Roy Mitchell with 41 points from the ever reliable Lyndsay Copeman on 35 and Adrian Thiele with 34. Roy attributed his form to good advice he received on the way around from his playing partner. Rob Ellis and Don Sims got the Ross Orchard Trophy, and balls were given out to 29 points or better. The next outing is at Kingston on November 12.
