MIRACLE MAN Adrian Holmes has had to postpone his Fringe Mount Gambier show but that is the least of the worries he has had over the past few years. The Mount Gambier born and bred musician has emerged from a major health scare, relatively unscathed, and it seems nothing can now dampen his enthusiasm for life. Three years ago, Adrian was living in Adelaide, building his career as a musician, performer and teacher, and life was good. “Things were going well and then out of the blue I had a seizure and it was discovered I had a brain tumour which I was quickly told was inoperable.” Initially Adrian lived with the diagnosis and looked to continue on for as long as he had but a year down the track, Adrian started what he sees as a run of incredible luck to turn his life ending diagnosis into a life changing prognosis.

“One of my contacts at St Peter’s College where I was teaching was friends with the best neurosurgeon in South Australia and he encouraged me to get his opinion,” Adrian said. “He said to me it had to be operated on and put me on a path that saved my life. He wasn’t soft with me. He was pretty blunt. He said I would probably never play piano again and it might be as serious as having to learn how to hold a cup again. The risks with the surgery were high and my speech and memory were almost certain to be affected.” While it is a case of all’s well that ends well for Adrian, it was a long road, almost two years of multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation. And while there were setbacks and tough times, there were also highlights that even the doctors had not though would be possible. “The staff at Flinders (Medical

Centre) and right through my rehab were amazing and always went that extra mile,” Adrian said. “Not long after one of my surgeries, they wheeled me to a piano and I decided to try and play the Black and White Rag and I could play it. It was a spiritual moment for me and probably when I realised I really could return to my life pre-brain tumour.” It was also when his now infectious and quirky sense of humour kicked in. “There was a small group of other patients and staff in the room when I was playing the piano and when I finished I told them “Dr Poonnoose is a genius – I couldn’t play a note before surgery’.” Adrian spent part of his recovery wearing a helmet and now has a titanium plate in his head and all of that has merely been a source of humour. “I have gone from being called Mr Helmet Head at school to Mr Titanium Head,” he said. And what Adrian sees as a run of incredible luck, the good news kept coming. His work with a speech pathologist actually improved his voice. “I was taught the science of the voice and that was life changing,” he said. “It not only improved my voice but helped me improve the voices of my students.” Basically Adrian was introduced to the Estill Voice Training system, developed by Jo Estill, a New York based speech pathologist with more than 25 years of research in vocal physiology, acoustics, and perception of voice quality under her belt having been published in many international medical and singing journals. She has taught voice for more than 30 years at

university and professional level and has extensive touring and educational experience worldwide. It is a technique that saw Adrian change the life of a Japanese exchange student he was working with at Immanuel College, a school he had been associated with for almost two decades, and that welcomed him back with open arms, post surgery. The student was an accomplished violinist and showed promise vocally so Adrian turned to the Estill technique and the results were astonishing. At one of the school’s major performance showcases, she sang Schubert’s Ave Maria and it was such a success that the students hoisted their unassuming classmate on their shoulders and

basically took her on a lap of honour. “She came up to me to thank me, saying she had been a shadow all her life and I had given her the skills and confidence to do that and I thought do I need any more reason than that why I do this (teaching)?” Adrian said. And it is the teaching in recent times that has become a focus of his career, which has also included children’s entertainment, jazz performing and songwriting. “Teaching is not a fall back part of my lifestyle1.net | 04

career at all, it is a really important and fulfilling part of my career.” A career that was bringing him to Mount Gambier for the Fringe to perform erform his most personal show yet – Scribbles n Dots – a biographical journey taking in his album DOTS and the scribbles that became a critical part of his recovery from brain surgery. “I genuinely find joy in such simple things now, my daily interactions with people and that’s where much of the material for the

show has come.” While his March 28 Wehl Street performance has been postponed, he is still hoping to showcase this personal work to his hometown audience at a later date. The dramatic, life changing past few years are, in the end, but one chapter of what has been a eclectic and diverse career since leaving the city limits of Mount Gambier. The Tenison Woods College graduate, who also studied music at Mount Gambier High School,

originally studied at the Adelaide Conservatorium of Music when he headed to Adelaide, returning home to play gigs at the Ritz Bar at Jen Hotel, a place he still holds dear, as well as seeing him join the acclaimed vocal ensemble Adelaide Connection, that saw him working with jazz greats James Morrison and Don Burrows. He also was part of the Life Education roadshow and the Music for Fun program, playing characters from a giant pea to an alligator, doing 12 shows over a seven month period every year for nine years. Adrian also made a good living from corporate gigs, as well as some high level jazz performances. “I was basically a jazz pianist or a funky singer and that kept me busy during the 90s,” Adrian said. “I was in my 20s and I certainly learnt a lot about the world from spending so much time in pubs and clubs until 2am in the morning.” For now, the teaching continues, and it is a case of watch this space for when he can bring his show Scribbles n Dots back home.

Virtual rose tour Wagner’s Rose Nursery has decided to cancel its annual Open Day scheduled for this Sunday, to protect the hundreds of visitors that every year attend this event. But for those that have been looking forward to the event, it is heading online. “We regret not being able to meet all our customers,” Brian Wagner said. “But circumstances we are all living with at the moment have enforced us to cancel this public event”. Wagner’s Rose Nursery will now hold a Virtual Open Day on the same day instead, inviting everyone Australia-wide to join Brian and Benedetta for a live virtual tour of the nursery on their facebook page. Cindy Cross will be providing a virtual workshop on making a floral

arrangement and a bouquet with roses, and all questions sent via social media will be answered. Visitors won’t be able to smell the roses and enjoy a walk through the thousands of plants, but they’ll be able to be in touch with Brian and Benedetta and to receive the same deals and discounts that were going to be offered at the Open Day. As the Open Day has always been an important fundraiser for the local school, during the Virtual Open Day there will be given the chance to make a donation toward Penola Primary School. More details of Wagner’s Virtual Open Day will be given soon on Wagner’s facebook page and website.

Full of twists & turns To say Rob McDonald’s life has been drama filled and a rollercoaster of highs and lows is a stunning understatement. Aside from the usual drugs, sex and rock ‘n’ roll, there have been health issues and Rob is open about it all – not shying away from his many mistakes and trying to focus on the positives in his life that now see him at his happiest. His childhood was spent growing up in Kalangadoo, the eldest of three sons, where his father and his brother-in-law ran the general store, a family established business. In the late 1950s, they opened a similar business in Nangwarry, running a store that included haberdashery, a bottle shop and deli. The small rural communities became Rob’s haven and whenever his life spiralled out of control, he would return home, often working in the general store, before turning his hand to farm labouring for the past three decades. As a primary school student, Rob was described as “quiet and unassuming” and by his own admission he was academically average. “I did top my Year 7 class but I am not sure if that counts when there were only about a dozen kids in the class,” Rob said. “I also received a newly invented prize which I think was for being nice to a couple of new kids. Who must have told their parents.” High school was Penola High and while Rob definitely lacked focus, he did start to discover his creative side, through both his writing in English class and his piano lessons with the nuns and Nangwarry. “I was hopeless at playing piano but picked up enough theory to translate to guitar a couple of years later,” Rob said. “I was also complimented on some fiction writing by my English teacher and that got me interested in song writing.”

“…the gloss of gigs had worn thin for me…”

Adelaide beckoned so Rob could complete Year 12, which was not offered at Penola at the time, and so boarding school at Scotch College became his new home as a 15 year old. A mystery allergy and an introduction to alcohol was the start of a rocky road for Rob. He had to do Year 11 twice and then after struggling through Year 12 returned to Kalangadoo to complete his schooling, with Penola now a Year 12 facility. “I felt out of place, though, at school and home so in the first term I dropped out to join the navy,” Rob said. There was three months at recruit school in Melbourne, a dry dock posting in Sydney, electronics training in Melbourne, a radio base posting in Canberra and then a stint on a destroyer with the first trip being to New Zealand. With a childhood propensity for seasickness rearing its head, Rob exited the navy as soon as possible and also saw him join a band for the first time, playing half a dozen gigs with a folk punk ensemble before they all went their separate ways and Rob opted for the comfort of home at Kalangadoo. That was not before he contacted a music promoter Sebastian Chase before he left Sydney. “I showed him some of my lyrics and he suggested I do a demo tape.” But Rob, who was looking to straighten up from a drug habit picked up in the navy, including cocaine and marijuana, and devoid of confidence, decided working in the family store at Nangwarry would be

“…I had never been in a gallery in my life and it was so far off my radar…” his new norm. “I think I was there a fortnight or so and mum who also worked there introduced me to a guy who had built a little recording studio in his backyard,” Rob said. So he was able to do did send that demo off to Sydney after doing some recording on his own and with the guy and his wife who were both singers. It did result in a meeting but Rob with no support network in Sydney, relocating on a maybe was too high a price to pay for possible success. Rob did find himself back in a band, though, gigging regularly around town at the Federal Hotel, South Gambier Football Club and a variety of other venues across the Limestone Coast and South West Victoria. “We did some of my songs, but mainly covers because that’s what people want,” Rob said. But his time in the band was again short lived. “The gloss of gigs had worn thin for me,” Rob said. “The buzz of applause would fade rapidly when you’re packing up and loading your gear at midnight.” But Rob did not ditch music and after happening on an eight track tape recorder, he started spending more time recording his own work, as he went through some issues in his personal life, and looked to spend a lot of time at home and alone. The Nangwarry store closed down and lifestyle1.net | 08

that is when Rob started his 30 year stint on a Kalangadoo farm. Relationship breakdowns, drinking and depression all continued to shape Rob’s life but a drink driving incident snapped him straight and looking after his family and continuing to record his music as a hobby had him back on track. “I am sure I would have enjoyed it (the music) less and been poorer had I tried to make a living from it, the farm work was also healthier,” Rob said. Things changed dramatically again in 2010 when at 55 years old Rob woke one morning with an intense ringing in his head and issues with his balance. Nine months of multiple tests ensued but the incessant ringing made life difficult. “It made it impossible to imagine a song in my head and follow it to its next part,” Rob said. And so music – so often his solace – was taken away by the tinnitus and resultant hearing issues. Drawing became his new escape and his partner and others started to notice the scribblings, as Rob termed them, showed promise. “My youngest daughter started to bring me pastels and acrylic paint,” Rob said. So the visual arts became his new creative outlet. It was an encounter with his partner’s sister-in-law Chrissy Pudney, a respected local artist, that kickstarted Rob’s artistic journey

in earnest. “She said she could see some of my work in a gallery,” Rob said. “I had never been in a gallery in my life and it was so far off my radar.” Chrissy put Rob in touch with former Nangwarry based artist Dagny Strand and he was quickly fast tracked into a community art project Dagny was overseeing – painting the boarded-up windows of abandoned shops, including his family’s store. The establishment of the Kalangadoo Farmers Market provided another godsend for Rob, who had built up the confidence to show others his work and he headed regularly to the market with a selection of his canvases and other work and once the church was converted to a café, Rob’s work continued to adorn the walls. But it was the influence of Dagny Strand that became pivotal. She introduced Rob to limestone sculpting and he attended the last Limestone Symposium held at the Old Mount Gambier Gaol and Rob also got involved with another of Dagny’s long standing projects – vine sculpture. “I was pulling down an old cyclone wire fence at work and it didn’t take a lot for me to imagine forming this into a frame through which the vine cuttings could be threaded,” Rob said and he worked on the vine sculpture project for three years and sold plenty of pieces.

KEEPING ACTIVE AT HOME Basic push-ups, sit-ups and squats are foundation movements of any home workout, but they can be varied in any number of ways. Try doing a certain amount of reps every minute, on the minute, or setting yourself the target of doing as many as sets as possible in a 10-minute time frame, as two ways to keep things interesting.

FROM OPP. PAGE The South East art scene was now his oyster and he had made critical connections, entering the prestigious John Shaw Neilson Acquisitive Art Competition and being part of an outdoor sculpture competition. “I had seen enough now of the local work to realise I had a long way to go technically and my only hope was originality - if you can’t be good try to be different,” he said. Sculpting with wire became Rob’s new obsession. “I loved how it could appear delicate and retain a movement that other mediums could not,” Rob said. And it was his work in wire that attracted the attention of Gallery 54’s Anne Miles, who offered Rob some space at the Penola gallery and by the time Rob arrived, the red dot sold stickers were already on most of his pieces.

“…I loved how it could appear delicate and retain a movement that other mediums could not…” A broken ankle in November last year did see Rob break out his brushes. “I’ve said many times I have to really bored to drag out the paints.” But his new lack of mobility made it the perfect time and Rob rediscovered his painting groove. He has put together an exhibition of both his paintings and wire sculptures called Wire & Paint and it was set to open this month at Gallery 54 but the exhibition is a victim of the coronavirus protocols and the gallery has postponed the exhibition and will hope to showcase his work later this year.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP has delivered $2500 in Federal Government Funding for the Limestone Coast Foodbank to assist in the installation of a new air conditioner. The organisation received the funding through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program. Mr Pasin said he was pleased the Federal Government was helping fund the project that would see the premises become more comfortable for staff and volunteers. “This is a small but important contribution to an organisation that brings so much benefit to our community,” Mr Pasin said.

Mr Pasin said the Stronger Communities program is aimed at funding projects that deliver social and economic benefits and form part of the Coalition Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen local communities across Australia. “Our local communities are the heart of this country and the investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about just that – strengthening communities and ensuring they have the facilities and the infrastructure to remain vibrant, great places to live into the future,” Mr Pasin said.

The connections between South West TAFE and health services in the Hamilton and Portland regions continue to thrive. Local health services employ dozens of TAFE nursing graduates, including several recent graduates who have already secured jobs. The connection has also been recognised with Western District Health Service (WDHS) winning South West TAFE’s 2019 Industry Collaboration Award, presented at the graduation ceremony in Warrnambool earlier this month. Nursing graduates including Dina Ferreira, Monique Doherty, Sarah Wall and Lainie Ryan have already moved into the next phases of their careers. Monique Doherty, from Hamilton, has won a Deakin Pathways Award and will continue her nursing study at the Deakin University Warrnambool campus as she completes her grad year at Western District Health Service. Sarah Wall and Lainie Ryan often travelled together from Portland to Hamilton for their study. Sarah is working with Independence Australia in Portland and Heywood Rural Health, while Lainie is undertaking further studies. Dina travelled from Casterton to study, joining with fellow locals to create a carpool system. She is now

Seniors at Heywood Rural Health Aged Care Centre have joined Jason Saunders for the inaugural Magic of Storytime where the young and young at heart experienced the magic of reading. Inspired by the ABC documentary Old People’s Home for 4-Year-Olds, the Magic of Storytime is encouraging children and older people to introduce and rediscover reading while bringing joy to the lives of those residents who are unable to access community activities due to mobility impairment. Children from Heywood Kindergarten, Heywood Day Care Centre along with members of the community, joined in the fun, enjoying the story The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland.

Several of last week’s graduates are now working at Casterton Memorial Hospital. South West TAFE CEO Mark Fidge said TAFE and Western District Health Service (WDHS) had formed a strong partnership over the years, providing many benefits to students in health courses. “Our Diploma of Nursing students have had the opportunity for placements in aged care, sub-acute, acute, community and mental health areas and our Individual Support students have also completed placements at WDHS,” Mr Fidge said. “WDHS representatives also regularly attend our Nursing Advisory Group meetings and provided

industry representation for our ANMAC accreditation. Not only does the organisation assist in improving our courses and taking students for placements, it also offers a graduate year and employment opportunities for our Diploma of Nursing students.” WDHS has also supported the running of careers in health days at South West TAFE’s Hamilton campus. Students have also been involved in WDHS’s Life 4 Life project and the Community for Youth Board. More recently, WDHS has been the lead industry partner in trialling and implementing products of the New Work Mindset in an aged care, health focused workforce.

Making sure that new paint job works

If you are looking to repaint your kitchen and /or bathroom there are some simple tips to keep in mind to make sure the new paint job works. In the kitchen, the best advice is to match the colour tone of your paint to your hardware fixtures and finishes.In the bathroom, you do need to consider how it will reflect given that is the room where you spend a lot of time checking things in the mirror. Sticking to fresh tones that don't throw too much blue, green or red are your best options.

What you should be getting done in the garden this month

How a colour looks on a swatch and how it looks on the wall and in the space in your home can differ so ALWAYS do a test patch so you can start to get a feel for what the finished, overall effect will be.

It is still fairly warm in this region, but there are a number of incredible edibles ready to go in now. Try lettuce, spinach, leek, silverbeet, and some Asian greens towards the tail end of the month. Broccoli, leeks and spring onions could be worth a shot when the nights get cooler.

Don't forget the kitchen and bathroom see the most wear and tear on a paint job courtesy of condensation, food prep spatter and the range of beauty products we splash and spray so ensure you choose a paint with extra washability, built in protection against bacteria and mould growth.

Add some colour and movement to the patch, and pop in some of these little pretties: stock, dianthus, viola, pansy, verbena and ageratum. Give most herbs a miss just now, but, if you’re really keen, get rolling with parsley and watercress. Garlic is good to go once the weather cools a touch. Top up mulch on your veggie patches, herb gardens and ornamental beds. A hot summer tip is to mulch after watering the patch, to a depth of about 7cm.

Keep mulch clear of plant stems….especially young seedlings. Choose sustainable, low environmental impact mulch, one that will enrich your soil as it breaks down. Plants feel the need for a feed at this time of year. A seaweed tea or low environmental impact liquid fertiliser is perfect, especially for the seedlings shoved in at the tail end of last year. Apply to the soil early in the morning, and in the concentrations mentioned on the packet. Water smarter at this time of year and always first thing in the morning. A nice, deep drink a couple of times a week is far more beneficial than frequent, short watering.

Located on the popular Matheson Road within Millicent, this home has been completely renovated to a high standard, is overly cosy and resides on a spacious allotment of 2038m2. As soon as you step into the front entrance, you’ll be impressed with the practical works that have been carried out along with the style this home oozes – Take advantage of the ‘mud room’ style front entrance area for storage, low line seat, coat hanging & a place to keep shoes, keys, handbags and those bits & pieces you never know where to hide away! Floating timber flooring sets the scene which flows through the open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is stunning and is a simple display of good taste, practicality and moves out to the decking area through French doors. Quality appliances including a 4 x electric burner cook top, large oven, dishwasher and 2 x pantry cupboards which sit at each end of the kitchen area. Stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer via the reverse cycle unit as well and ceiling fans but you can also use the option to enjoy those balmy nights on the spacious deck area which overlooks the rear yard. All bedrooms are carpeted, large in size and provide plenty of natural light while the spacious laundry offers great storage, an office nook area plus rear door to deck and yard. Modern bathroom is centrally located for convenience along with the floor to ceiling linen press / storage cupboards close at hand.

Re-Tern

Of The

Fairy Terns

A colony of endangered Fairy Terns have had a successful nesting event at Robe. National Parks and Wildlife Service SA senior ranger Cath Bell said the birds have historically used this site for breeding, but with limited success.

“Fairy Terns were last observed attempting to nest in the same location in 2012, and some years before,” Cath said. “Unfortunately the site was abandoned before any chicks fledged, and they hadn’t returned until a few months ago.” The Fairy Tern is the smallest of the Australian tern species and can be identified by its white body, black crown with black extending to the eye, and bright orange-yellow beak. Listed as endangered in South Australia, the small birds nest in colonies on the ground atop cliffs or on beaches and sandy spits. They are extremely vulnerable to

disturbance due to nesting directly on the ground. “The key difference for this breeding event compared to other years is the barrier fencing installed by the District Council of Robe,” Cath said. “The fencing was installed for public safety and has also protected the remaining fragile vegetation on the cliff tops, keeping habitat intact for the Fairy Tern. This prevented the continual disturbance of the nesting colony from pedestrians trampling across the cliff tops. It’s exciting to see the return of this endangered

The Sleepy Budgies... I’ll start by saying I won’t be talking about coronavirus this week. I don’t feel there’s anything original I can add to the discussion at the moment. It’s not a particularly funny topic either, is it? Having said that, I think we’ve got to try to keep having a laugh and there have been entertaining memes etc doing the rounds, and I think that’s great. Anyway, indulge me as I talk about something that makes me happy this week. It probably won’t be particularly funny, and is definitely a bit selfindulgent, but maybe it’ll make you think of something different for a few minutes. And if not, you can cut this up and use it as toilet paper. March 29, 2020, marks the 20 year anniversary of the greatest netball team that has ever existed. That team’s name is the Sleepy Budgies. Think back to the year 2000 when we’d survived the disaster that was the Y2K problem. I don’t remember there being as many issues with toilet paper and flour back then (sorry, wasn’t going to talk about coronavirus). Anyway, I’d been playing mixed netball since late in high school, had played it with a group of friends at university, and then played it on and off during my first couple of years of work life. But in 2000 I decided that I needed a new way to impress young ladies and needed a full time team. In those days the place to play was the old Action Sports Centre behind Squashbrook. This was the old indoor cricket centre so the netball was played inside netted courts. This presented its own unique challenges. The rules stated players weren’t allowed to lean on the nets, but you would occasionally see players running flat out jumping and latching onto the nets like some sort of spider monkey. From day one the team was built around finding a good group of friends, rather than people who actually had netball ability. Otherwise I probably would have never gotten a game. Luckily the group of friends I put together had a couple of characters with some netball know-how. The initial lineup featured yours truly plus two of my mates, Boxer and Tilley. On the ladies side of the equation, we had two youngsters who I had recently started working with Bucky and Wild Rachy Wilkens, my recently

ex-girlfriend Penny the Penguin and my-soon-tobe-girlfriend-and-destinedto-be-next-ex-girlfriend She Who Shall Not Be Named. Sounds a bit awkward, right? What was I thinking?! One of the keys when starting a social sporting team is to come up with a clever team name. We were working with a person who we decided would never be part of the team, so called the initial team No Neons as a tribute for a nickname we had for the person, to indicate that this person would never play. In the early seasons we changed the name each season, going from No Neons to Small Potatoes to Muscular Beavers in our first three seasons. It was only in our fourth season that we came across the classic name the Sleepy Budgies, and the legend was truly born. Our first opponents were the Trunk Spiders. I’ve got no idea if we won or not. To start off with we were a reasonable team but had plenty of learning to do. I spent half of each match diving at any ball that was dribbling loose on the ground, despite the fact a member of the opposition may have been standing nearby clearly in a position to collect the ball. I’m sure people must have hated my carry on as I dived and often collected them below the knees. Very dangerous. Sorry to everyone we played back then. Throughout the first season I was the self-appointed captain, but due to poor form issues and concerns over my leadership, I was voted out and Tilley was given the vital role, leading to the need for a new nickname (Skip). Boxer left the team early on, leading to the recruitment of Maffy. Penny also left the team which allowed us to bring some veteran leadership into the team with the legendary Kazza and got rid of some of the awkwardness of the bizarre love triangle. To give you a little indication of the greatness of this team, Tilley, Bucky, Maffy and myself were still in the lineup in our most recent game this week. We’ve played literally hundreds of games together (trust me, I’ve got a spreadsheet that records it.) There wouldn’t be too many sporting teams with over half of their team having played together for twenty years, I wouldn’t have thought. Over the years we’ve gotten better as a team and often know what our teammates are doing or want us to do from the look in their eyes. We’ve certainly improved as a team, although never really been the best team going around netball wise. We’ve become quite good at being runners up, and we’re particularly skilled in losing grand finals. To be clear, I did declare we are the best netball team ever at the start of this article. That is not based on pure netball ability. It also takes into account

historical value of the team, as well as other important factors including, entertainment value, performance at the pub each Wednesday night, and the Hawaiian shirts we wore in our first few seasons. Going to the pub after games is an important experience for some members of the team, although it’s not compulsory. It’s not about drinking alcohol; it’s just the social side of hanging out with friends, and telling the same dumb stories, and making the same plan to go on a footy trip, that we’ve been doing for the last twenty years. Maybe this is the year when we will go on a footy trip, although that’s looking increasingly unlikely at the moment. Apart from the four 20 year veterans, there have been other significant players over the years including Kazza as mentioned earlier, Sully and Big Sam who have been semi regulars for over 10 years, and Gadget who has been a key member of the lineup for over 10 years. Truth be told, time is catching up with us and I suspect we probably only have another 20 years or so of netball in us. We’re getting little glimpses of the fact we’re not as young as we used to be. We get a little bit scared when we see our opposition is a bunch of fit, energetic, athletic twenty somethings, although we often managed to beat them due to experience. The joints are a little sorer and the headaches a little more difficult to work through on Thursday mornings. But our wives, husbands and partners are still enjoying not having to put up with us on Wednesday nights, so we’ll keep plodding on at this stage. Having said that, we have had a couple of team members leaving recently due to changes in work circumstances. So if you’re a female and you might be interested in trying out for the greatest netball team in history, maybe flick me an email. You’ve got to be a bit of fun and if you’ve got some reasonable netball skills that also wouldn’t hurt. By trying out I don’t mean you’d have to do some drills or something. We’d probably just get you out to fill in and see if you’re crazy enough to fit in with us. If you were playing in a mixed netball team called Trunk Spiders in 2000, send me an email at robbietansel@gmail.com

It’s raining gold for local runner Under 17 100m, 200m & 400m events and returned home with two gold and a bronze medal. In the 100m he came third in a time of 11.34 seconds, narrowly missing out on silver by .01sec. He claimed gold in the 200m in a time of 22.99 and also picked up gold in the 400m in a time of 51.78.

Baseball names 2019/20 premiers Mount Gambier & District Baseball League has abandoned the 2019/20 finals series with the top ranked teams in each grade being awarded the premiership. This result to the end of the season is unprecedented and has never ever happened before in the baseball community in Mount Gambier since baseball started as a competition in 1931. Apart from 1943 during the war years, when a competition was started, but no finals were played due to lack of numbers and a premiership was not awarded. Many of the players at that time were made up from personnel in the RAAF who were stationed at the aerodrome at that time. Also included were a number of American airmen who were also stationed here. Baseball was not suspended during World War II, only this small glitch in 1943.

Demons crowned softball premiers The Mount Gambier Softball League had completed two of its three weeks of the 2019/20 finals series but the coronavirus has stymied the conclusion of that finals series, which would have been a grand final at the weekendbetween Demons and Warriors Blue - the third successive season the two teams would fight out for the title.

TENNIS TOURNAMENT CANCELLED The Lucindale Easter Tennis Tournament is a fixture on the tennis calendar for not only locals but players from across South Australia and Victoria and it was set to celebrate its 55th anniversary this year but it is another victim of coronavirus protocols and has been cancelled for 2020.

Pioneers season indefinitely on hold The NBL and State Associations are continuing to assess the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on the forthcoming NBL1 Season. NBL1 Central was scheduled to start on March 14, NBL1 South on April 18 and NBL1 North on April 24, but all three conferences will now not start prior to May 15. NBL chief operating officer Andy Crook said the health and welfare of players, staff, officials and fans is our number one priority. “These are obviously challenging times for everyone and we will continue to monitor the situation along with the state associations and assess all of our options,” Crook said. “We hope to be able to be in a position to still play

this season but we will be guided by the relevant health authorities and provide regular updates.”

Tatiara Masters Games cancelled After careful consideration of the most recent advice of relevant State and Federal health authorities, including yesterday’s declaration of a public health emergency by the South Australian Premier, the Tatiara Masters Games organising ccommittee and Tatiara District Council have agreed that the Masters Games be cancelled. The committee’s recommendation and caouncil’s rubber stamping of the recommendation was not made lightly. It is a preventative measure to support the health and well being of our participants, volunteers and the broader community. It is about helping to stem the spread of COVID-19 in the community and “flattening the curve�. The organising committee recognised that were they to go ahead with the games, they could be quite diminished. Some sports have already expressed their concerns and pulled out of the event, and they have also seen some participants cancelling their registrations

amidst fears about travelling at this time. The Tatiara Masters Games Committee is working with Sports SA to secure the games for 2022.

Golf veterans soldier on A good number of 80 gathered at Attamurra for the South East Golf Veterans AGM meeting and ambrose event. The runaway winners were Rob Chalmers, Kingston,Terry Chant and Brian Duldig, Millicent, and Brian Coe of Attamurra. They had 62 off the stick, nett 54.12. Next with 65 off the stick were the Robe quartet of Ian Regnier, Gordon Fleming, Peter Delaine and Rob Cece, nett 56.75 and third was another Robe quartet - Jock MacFarlane, Shane Will, Brian Forman, and Kevin Otten had 66 of the stick, nett 57.36. Fourth and fifth groups had 66 and 67 off the stick, and the Ross Orchard trophy went to a Mount quartet of Peter Johnstone, Alex Juokoff, John Kirby and Rob McIntyre. The NTPs were Bob Davies and Tony Klug and special mention to Glen Tilley’s group who had an eagle. All the incumbent officeholders were re-elected at the AGM. All courses now have a hitoff starting at

9.30am. The golf veterans have a three week break now until Millicent on April 6, and then another three week break until Bordertown on April 27. Forty-plus members are visiting the Barossa for four days from April 19.

COVID-19 BASKETBALL MOUNT GAMBIER UPDATE In the interest of staff and community health and well being as a precautionary measure the board of Basketball Mount Gambier has decided to cancel all competitions and training until further notice. No Summer 2019/20 premiership medallions will be awarded however Most Valuable Player season trophies will be awarded. The Stadium and Office will be closed to the public until further notice.
