Duo bringing art to the people

Paint Jam project aims to bring artists & the community together

Pariya Ziakas and Ruth Stephenson have always been committed to sharing their passion for art. That’s why they have both been entrenched in the local education system, inspiring the next generation of artist. That’s why they have collaborated on community art projects, including the Ripley Arcade mural. And it’s why, five months ago, they joined forces to open Artscape Creatives in Mount Gambier – a creative space to run community workshops, host functions and provide artistic opportunities for creatives of all ages.

Now they have a new project in their sights and it’s happening on the weekend of December 10 and 11.

Paint Jam is a continuation of Pariya’s stobie pole art campaign from a couple of years ago and she now has Ruth on board, as well as 14 other local artists in a bid to no just spruce up the city’s stobie poles but to allow the community to watch artists at work and see just how the process work.

“Ruth and I had a look at

what should be the extension of the stobie pole project and this seemed like a great idea,” Pariya said. “And we had no trouble finding artists who were interested in being involved and we have been able to bring together a

diverse group of local artists, all with different styles, flair and insane talent.”

The artists will roll up their sleeves and get to work from 10am on both days with the work taking place along what Ruth and Pariya

New repertoire for Limestone Coast orchestra

“This is opera dashed with the sardonic Aussie treatment and we know it is going to be a great night out. Don’t miss it,” he said.

see as an art trail in the Birdsville area, Swallow Drive, Sparrow Avenue and Swan Street. The Paint Jam project will see this new work connect with the work Pariya initially completed.

“And we want to see it continue to grow – we think it would be great to follow the art trail from one side of town to the other,” Pariya said.

Getting Paint Jam off the ground has seen Pariya and Ruth work cooperatively with residents, SA Power Networks and the City of Mount Gambier and they have 21 stobie poles in their sights to be transformed.

“We want to thank all local artists for their time and commitment to this stobie pole painting art project,” Pariya said. “It is close to our hearts and we cannot wait to share this experience with you. We just want to make art accessible to people.”

The group of participating artists range from established local artists to new emerging artists and will be easily identifiable in hi-vis clothing.

Pariya and Ruth do also ask

that the community be aware of artists working, be respectful of artists working, ensure children are supervised at all times, be aware of traffic and respect residential properties.

And while the duo coordinate the Paint Jam weekend, they are also putting the finishing touches to Artscape Creatives 2023 program.

In the end, the State Opera visit proved to be the perfect fit for one of those supplementary performances.

“Once our second term season finished the string players, especially the three or four new players were very keen

to keep playing,” Jennie said.

That saw 12 players looking to keep the music going and after a discussion with theatre manager Frank Morello the State Opera visit loomed as the best opportunity.

“I think we’ve come up with

Gershwin, Scott Joplin, Leroy Anderson and Henry Mancini as well as a few other ragtime composers that people would not be as familiar with,” Jennie said.

Spreading the cheer this Christmas

Mount Gambier Community Mayor’s Christmas Appeal officially launches

City of Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin has joined with local support agencies to launch the 2022 Mount Gambier Community Mayor’s Christmas Appeal, encouraging donations from local businesses, community groups, families and individuals.

Each year the Mount Gambier Community Mayor’s Christmas Appeal plays a critical role in ensuring that vulnerable and isolated people in our city can experience the joy of Christmas.

Christmas should be a time of joy and hope, but the current cost of living crisis impact felt by those struggling to make ends meet can make it a stressful time.

The local community raised a record amount of more than $50,000 for the appeal last year, which is distributed to local support agencies, including Uniting Care,, Lifeline SE, St Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army to provide food hampers, vouchers and gifts through the Christmas Cheer program. Collectively the agencies aided approximately 750 adults and more than 620 children and teenagers last Christmas.

“Each year, I am overwhelmed by those who donate so generously,” Mayor Martin said. “Given the circumstances and hardships experienced due to the rising cost of living and housing

affordability, our support agencies expect even greater demand for assistance this year.

“As mayor, I want to work towards enabling as many people as possible to experience the joy of Christmas.

“Given the challenges families are enduring this year, I know not everyone will be in a position to support the appeal, but a

donation of as little as $50 can provide a Christmas food hamper for an entire family, and a further contribution can provide gifts and toys for children, which will make a big difference on Christmas Day.”

Volunteering for Uniting Care, Laura Kilsby reiterated the impact of the Christmas Appeal within our community.

“If only those who donate could

Homecoming queen

Historical saga author goes back to her roots

Mount Gambier Library welcomes international best-selling author Fiona McIntosh with her highly anticipated new historical saga The Orphans this Thursday at 7pm at The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre.

Known as the ‘Master of Storytelling’, Fiona is highly respected by many Australian authors who owe their success to her.

Ordinarily, Fiona (pictured) roams the world to some of the most beautiful countries researching and drawing on inspiration for her historical sagas.

However, The Orphans is Fiona’s first in nearly 40 novels set entirely in Australia.

“My trademark is taking readers to exotic destinations via armchair travel,” said Ms McIntosh.

“Then COVID came along, and I was trapped – not only in my own country, but my State. It became obvious that I would have to start about setting a story in South Australia and that was daunting for me; I have never written an Australian novel before”.

Having just written a book called ‘The Champagne War’, about wine and Champagne, Fiona knew she couldn’t go back to the vineyards for a storyline, which is what South Australia is so well known for.

The Orphans is set in the 1930s; a loving undertaker and his wife adopt orphan Fleur Appleby, and she quickly develops a special gift for helping bereaved families.

Her ambition to be the first female mortician in the country is fuelled by her plan to bring more

women into the male-dominated funeral industry.

Raised in the outback of South Australia’s Flinders Rangers, Tom Catchlove is faced with a lifechanging tragedy as a young boy. He works hard but dreams big, striving for a future as a wool classer.

When the two meet, they realise this is not the first time they have seen one another, so fate pushes two people together from far flung lifestyles to find love amongst ambition, murder, and treachery.

This a free event with bookings available by contacting the Mount Gambier Library on (08)8721 2540 or book online at www. under ‘Programs and Events’.

see the change that their support makes. The smiles on the faces of those receiving assistance demonstrate just how much relief this bit of help can create,” Mrs Kilsby said.

“We’re seeing people, even families together with their dogs, who are currently living in their cars. Many people are doing it tough in our community.

“There’s quite a lot of new faces and many people who are possibly seeking assistance for the first time - it’s not only people who are homeless or out of work, it’s those who perhaps aren’t getting enough hours or who are struggling to make their dollars stretch in the current times”.

All funds raised as part of the appeal are distributed locally.

Donations can be made through the following channels:

• Call Council on 08 8721 2555 (option 1) with your credit card details on hand. Council staff can email you a tax invoice.

• The City of Mount Gambier customer service counter - Civic Centre, 10 Watson Terrace.

• Send a cheque to City of Mount Gambier PO Box 56 Mount Gambier SA 5290, with advice that the cheque is a donation to the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal.

• Tap your card or phone at our ‘tap and go’ EFTPOS at local businesses.

The call is out for business to get into the spirit of Christmas

Businesses are being encouraged to Light Up Glenelg and bring a Christmas twinkle to the CBD, with entries now open for the 2022 Glenelg Shire Retail Window and Light Display Competition.

The competition invites traders across the Shire to adorn their premises with Christmas lights and decorations in a bid to win a share in the $2000 cash prize pool.

“This is great opportunity for our business community to ‘light up’ the streets of Glenelg and ignite the festive spirit,” Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Scott Martin said.

“This year our winners will be determined by the community, through an online voting system on social media. The winning entries in each location will be determined by the number of likes (votes) received on the entry image displayed. The most likes will be named the winner, and the second most likes will be the runner up.

“Entries will be split into two categories, Portland and surrounds and Casterton and surrounds, so community members will be able to vote for their favourite display closest to their home. Keep an eye out on the Glenelg Shire Facebook page when the voting opens in mid-December for your chance to vote.

“I look forward to seeing what creative and colourful designs are used and the collective impact this will have upon our retail precincts across the shire.”

Cr Martin also reminded residents to shop locally and help support the region’s business community ahead of the busy Christmas season.

‘There are plenty of fantastic shops right here in our backyard for all your presents. Let’s help make everyone’s Christmas great this year by choosing local, and ensuring our business community can continue to thrive,” he said.

2022 Glenelg Shire Retail Window and Light Display Competition entries and photo of entry must be submitted by 5pm Friday 9 December. Online voting by the public will take place between Wednesday, December 14, and Thursday, December 22.

Entrants not located in Portland or Casterton can nominate which section they wish to enter their display into.

Full competition terms and conditions and entry forms are available online via the Your Say Glenelg website.

Getting busy after dark

Library extends its Thursday night program

The Portland Library will continue to stay open ‘after dark’, with a popular program extended for a further 12 months.

The ‘Libraries After Dark’ program has been extended at the Portland Library until December 2023, offering the community fun, free inclusive events and activities every Thursday nigh

The program will resume with slightly reduced hours of 5pm –9pm from Thursday 17 November, one hour less than its current operating hours of 5pm – 10pm.

Libraries and information services manager Tanya Flockhart said the program had quickly amassed a loyal patronage since it was first launched. “The Libraries After Dark

program was first launched in 2020 to extend our opening hours on Thursday nights and promote the Library as an alternative venue and entertainment option, providing activities as well as full library services to the community,” she said. “In two short years we have welcomed more than 2,700 people across our Thursday evening programming and have reinforced the Glenelg Libraries’ core reputation as a safe and welcoming space for all to come.

“We continue to receive overwhelming feedback from our loyal patrons who say “I love Thursday nights” and “I look forward to it all week”.

“We’re thrilled to see Libraries

After Dark extended for a further 12 months and help continue to provide crucial opportunities for the community to come together in an informal setting and learn new skills, listen to music or simply study.

“Keep an eye out for regular updates, with upcoming Libraries After Dark sessions including figure drawing, mandala colouring and a clay workshop.

“We look forward to continuing to welcome new faces to the Library on Thursday evenings.”

Taking care of endangered birds during nesting season

Last year, nesting season for the Hooded Plovers shared a positive trend in several regions including the Limestone Coast compared to previous years fledged chicks.

Hooded Plovers are one of Australia’s top 20 threatened bird species, estimated at fewer than 800 birds in South Australia.

Supporting the vulnerable species by protecting them from predators and restoring and protecting habitat is an important project of the Limestone Coast Landscape Board funded through from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.

Our Coorong | Our Coast

project coordinator Robbie Andrew urges visitors to the region to be mindful of nesting Hooded Plovers during the warmer months.

“During the summer months the birds lay their eggs in the sand, and to protect the eggs, will try to lead predators away from the nest, leaving them vulnerable to trampling,” Robbie said.

There are a few things we can do to support Hooded Plovers (pictured below nesting in Canunda national Park) during their breeding season such as• Keeping your dog on a leash at all times and walking near the water’s edge

• Paying attention to Hooded Plover awareness signs at beach entrances

• Keeping away from temporary fenced off areas on the beach that are

there to protect nests and chicks • Moving away quietly if you spot hooded plovers on the beach

“As we share our coastal landscape with them, we can all play our part in looking after chicks to give them the best chance of survival,” Robbie said.

New iconic folk festival deal

The Port Fairy Folk Festival and Moyne Shire Council have strengthened a deal which will ensure the festival remains at Southcombe Park. Mayor Cr Karen Foster said council staff have worked collaboratively with the Festival Committee and Southcombe Park’s Committee of Management to ensure the interests and needs of all stakeholders and user groups of the reserve are considered. “The Folk Festival is an iconic local event and Southcombe Park is an important reserve for particularly the cricket and soccer clubs - so it’s important to ensure everyone’s needs are take into account,” Cr Foster said. “For the first time in 30 years, there was some damage to the oval during the pack up of last year’s festival, the agreement was due for a refresh so we worked together to make sure it was really clear what each group needed. I thank all the users groups for taking this collaborative approach and working together to ensure the best possible outcome for all.”

Fabulous Baker boy Tenison Woods College hands out its fifth Flyer Award

Craig Baker has become the fifth recipient of the Tenison Woods College Flyers Award – an honour created in the memory of four old scholars who went on to become pilots and who lost their lives while flying.

The award is traditionally presented at the college’s Remembrance Day commemorations, giving RSL president Bob Sandow a chance to share the stories of the four former alumni.

Anthony Casadio, John Friedricks, Reginald Van Leuven and Errol Kavanagh are the four former students that Mr Sandow through should be memorialised with a scholarship.

“I approached Tenison Woods College about nine years ago, to create a scholarship to honour the four old scholars who all became pilots,” Mr Sandow said. “This scholarship highlights the values of Tenison Woods College and the aim of the scholarship is to reward a student who has given their all in every aspect of schooling life. My wife and I fund the award on behalf of the Mount Gambier Community RSL and will continue to do so as long as we can”.

All four men served in Vietnam with Anthony Casadio losing his life and the other three returning safely before losing their lives at a later date in flying incidents.

The Flyers Award honours the sacrifice and service of those men and women who served their country in a variety of military capacities. The award seeks to acknowledge a senior school student who has demonstrated their ability to go beyond what is generally expected of them, put others before themselves and has a strong sense of comradeship.

2022 recipient Craig Baker ticked all those boxes.

He is a mature, motivated, and hard-working young man, who is a beacon of workplace ethics, leadership, tenacity and positivity.

Craig is currently undertaking two simultaneous Certificate III level programs - Forest Learning Pathways Program and Hospitality - and holds two jobs including one at the Tenison Woods College Sugarloaf Café, where he is completing a School-Based Traineeship (Barista/Front of House).

He is also completing his SACE pathway at the college and takes pride in serving those within the college community with intention to improve everyone’s day.

He is community minded, ensuring everyone is looked after

in the Sugarloaf Café and is often putting in many more hours than required to support his work team, pre-empting high volume work periods without being asked to do so in a calm and friendly manner.

“I was extremely shocked to receive the Flyers Award,” Craig said. “I had not seen this coming at all, but I was really honoured to receive this award. My family was really happy to hear the news.

“It has been a great pleasure to win this award, but I would not be able to do it without the support of the people around me. Being able to work in such a professional environment with such a welcoming team.

“Without the help I have received from Sugarloaf Café Manager Jenny Vanikiotis, and VET Academy of Hospitality Teacher Jen McCourt, I would have not made it this far. Both Jenny and Jen have been two role models that have supported me through this journey which words cannot explain.

“The Sugarloaf Café at Tenison has given me so much fundamental knowledge, that next year I will be completing another school-based apprenticeship with The Barry Maney Group, as well as also completing my SACE.

“I would sincerely like to thank my work team, friends, teachers and family members who have supported me along my journey.”

Craig joins the Flyers Award honour board that includes inaugural winner Taylor Fatchen (2018), Mitchell Watt, Patrick McCourt and Isabella Lamb.

Craig (pictured above with RSL President John Sandow) was presented his honour at the 2022 Remembrance Day assembly, which was led by newly appointed College Captains Aden Clarke and Gael Chizungu.

Students participated in a prayer dedicated to remembering those who died or suffered during Australia’s involvement in all wars and armed conflicts and RSL President Bob Sandow shared with the students the brief stories of the four old scholars in whose memory the Flyers Award was inaugurated.


Tony had already proved himself as a leader during his school years as captain of sports teams, being captain of the First X1 cricket team. He was also Senior Athletics Champion and had done well in his academic studies. Tony was a highly decorated pilot of the Vietnam War. He was in the unique position of flying helicopters in a combined Australian American Group. For his heroic efforts on surviving a helicopter crash landing after being shot down in enemy territory, earned him an American citation. However, Tony and his crew did not survive the second crash landing and he and his crew of three were killed in action in August 1968, when Tony was 23 years of age. Tony has numerous awards including his own monument in the Washington Aeronautical and Space Museum, USA plus honoured in numerous other locations. Tony was the second highest Australia RAN casualty in Vietnam. Tony was buried here in Mount Gambier with full military honours.

• John David Friedrichs RAAF John left Marist Brothers College in the early 1960s. He trained to become a priest, prior to becoming a jet fighter pilot and after time flying, including a tour of Vietnam, he became a member of the legendary Roulettes team, flying Mirage Jets. Tragically, John died in February 1974, aged 26 years, flying a French Mirage Jet whilst practising a manoeuvre for the Roulettes. Twnety-three of Australia’s Mirage Jets crashed with John being the ninth pilot to be killed. John was buried in Mount Gambier with full military honours, with a flyover by the Roulettes with his number three position left unfilled. (Sadly his younger brother also died whilst flying and both boys left a pregnant wife.)

• Reginald Van Leuven Reg was a boy from Naracoorte, and was a boarder at Marist Brothers College, attending a year level below Anthony Casadio. On leaving school, Reg worked in a bank for 12 months prior to joining the Air Force. Reg obtained his flying licence before he could drive a motor vehicle. Tragically, Reg died in a helicopter accident while doing rescue work in the 1974 Queensland floods. The Naracoorte Aerodrome was named after him, along with a dedication plaque. • Captain Errol Kavanagh RANEM Errol attended Marist Brothers College, with the leaving class being 1960. He was a pilot with 20 years’ experience including tours of Vietnam war and was naval captain of several Australian Naval vessels. Leaving the service, he flew jumbo jets which he described as flying an armchair. Missing the thrill of speed, he then started flying a privately owned MIG fighter at charity events. In 1993 in Canberra he crashed shortly after take-off and he and his passenger were killed. Errol was aged 48 years. On the adjacent oval where perhaps he could have landed 2000 people were playing sport that day. Witnesses say he altered height to keep away from the oval. The extra time in the air caused the plane to catch fire. Many newspaper reports of the day called him a hero. This oval is now named the Errol Kavanagh Memorial Oval in remembrance of his heroic efforts.

For and on behalf of COMMISSIONER OF POLICE

Design consultants Sproutt will be in the region this week, making preliminary investigations regarding the detailed design of the town centre streetscape projects for both Penola and Millicent. This is the next step in a process that began back in 2018, when Wattle Range Council committed funds to enhance both town centres, improving amenity whilst preserving character, encouraging opportunities for economic development and promoting places for people.

WAX Design was then engaged to come up with a concept design. Wattle Range Council CEO Ben Gower said the concept design process was about engaging with the community through workshops and surveys. “WAX were able to better understand their priorities, as well as reflecting on any ideas, aspirations, issues and opportunities raised,” Mr Gower said. “This community feedback played an integral part in the development of the final concepts.”

A total of 13 projects were identified by WAX in the Town Centre Concept Designs, and the first three of those have been selected by Council to be progressed to a detailed design phase:

• Penola: Town Entry - pictured above top

• Penola: Riddoch Street - pictured above bottom

• Millicent: Town Park & Stuckey Street (Glen Street) - pictured below

“The projects selected were seen to have the highest level of economic, social and environmental benefit to Penola and Millicent. The design brief is to protect and enhance the unique character of the town centres whilst encouraging activation,” Mr Gower said

Whilst in the region this week, Sproutt representatives will be visiting the proposed sites, as well as meeting with key stakeholders, including impacted traders/business owners, cultural representatives and disability advocates.

“Preliminary designs will be provided to council in March next year, at which time further conversations with stakeholders will occur, with the final designs for tender expected to be ready in June 2023,” Mr Gower said. “The deliberately staged approach to these rejuvenation projects will enable Council to leverage both internal and external funding, in order to successfully bring the community’s vision to life.”

Creating a roadmap of producers

Limestone Coast Food and Agribusiness Cluster to create directory

The Limestone Coast Food and Agribusiness Cluster is connecting food and beverage businesses, buyers and consumers across the Limestone Coast with the release of a new online directory for the region.

The Limestone Coast Producer Directory is a new interactive tool to connect food and beverage suppliers with consumers and an important tool for retailers, buyers, wholesalers, chefs, caterers, tourism operators and regional events to discover and promote local business and boost awareness of the incredible range and quality of producers in the region.

Limestone Coast Food and Agribusiness Cluster Board chair Danielle England (pictured top right) said the directory provides individual business details, including their provenance story, beautiful imagery and contact information and has been developed through the support of the Limestone Coast Landscape Board, through funding from the Australian Government’s National

Landcare Program.

“The Limestone Coast is a special place; we are proud of the premium quality produce that comes from the land and sea of the region,” Ms England said.

“Sharing this is what drives us and we want to ensure that the region’s produce is well known locally, nationally and internationally.

“From family farmers, skilled producers, fishing co-ops and highly reputable wine makers, the region’s products have been delighting consumers for decades.

We want to bring a greater spotlight to the Limestone Coast as a flagship food and beverage region, to tell the stories of our producers and connect them to consumers and buyers.”

Making it easy for the user to find what they are looking for, the Producer Directory categorises the listings to cover beverages; alternative protein; baked goods; bush foods; catering and food services; chocolate and confectionery; dairy, eggs and cheese; fresh produce; meat and poultry; pantry; and seafood, fish and aquaculture.

“The Limestone Coast Producer Directory is going to be a wonderful tool for consumers and retailers to explore the array of fresh and value-added produce in their own backyard, and to link directly to the producer business,” Ms England said. “Food and Agri-Tourism are becoming ever more popular, this sector plays an increasingly important role in attracting more visitors to the Limestone Coast. We have so much to share in our region, known for its diversity and abundance, whether its grapes or grain, lamb or lobster, or the array of artisan, hand crafted produce. We want to share this with the world, and the Limestone Coast Producer Directory is one tool we can use to do this. Telling the provenance story of each business, providing contact details to link consumers and retailers directly to producers.”

The Producer Directory currently features a small number of listings as it launches, and the Cluster is seeking to grow the directory to become the most comprehensive “one-stop guide” for all Limestone Coast producers.

To see what your listing could possibly look like, visit https://www. producers/.

How can your business feature on the Producer Directory? We invite you to join the Limestone Coast Food and Agribusiness Cluster, with membership costing only $350 (ex GST) per year for Producers and Producer Supporters. In addition to the Producer Directory membership also includes a wide range of other benefits, such as access to the new food and beverage brand for the region – Proudly Limestone Coast. To find out more visit the website, or email ceo@proudlylimestonecoast.

Keeping it simple

Showcasing the importance of play for young kids

Talk, read, sing, play. Four simple activities that can make all the difference in your child’s development and it is why the Words Grow Minds campaign was launched in Mount Gambier a month ago and why a Mount Gambier Library and Playgroup SA have joined forces for a free community activity this Wednesday focussing on the important of those four skills.

City of Mount Gambier children’s and youth services coordinator Kelly Lynch said the library has been running these type of programs for many years and it was great to have a national campaign to reinforce the value of the talk, read, sing, play concepts in children up to three years old.

“We are thrilled to be the first region in South Australia to benefit from Words Grow Minds, which provides us with a strong platform to support parents and caregivers of young children throughout our network,” Ms Lynch said. “The playgroup session will celebrate Words Grow Minds with young families in a fun and interactive way, encouraging parents and caregivers to talk, read, sing, play every day with their children.”

The Words Grow Minds campaign, which launched was launched last month by former Federal Minister for Early Childhood and Chair of the Early Years Taskforce Kate Ellis (ppictured right) as a six week pilot program, evolved out of research that showed children were not heading to school ready to tackle those early years of schooling.

Every four years an early Childhood census is undertaken and that was the key finding of the most recent report, meaning it was time to actively promote the value of the talk, read, sing, play concepts in every day family life.

The Words Grow Minds campaign grew out of that report and is the first all encompassing campaign of its kind, bringing all service providers, educators and families together to learn the value of the simplest parent-child time.

“We just want to make sure parents know that every moment they spend with their children is helping their brains grow,” Ms Lynch said. “It really is all you need to do. Words Grow Minds is somewhat of a call to action to get everyone together.

Playgroup runs from 10.30am to 11.30am in the Cave Garden and will be all about the talk, read, sing, play with other parents and caregivers, with local early childhood educators and other service providers also on hand.

There will be a range of toys and activities on offer with Raising Literacy Australia also directly supporting the event, donating 50 children’s picture books, which children can choose from and take home.

The Mount Gambier Library offers similar early childhood programs four times a week at the facility.

“It is our bread and butter,” Ms Lynch said. “These type of programs are also as much for parents as they are for the kids.

It gives parents a community to connect to and when parent feel connected that builds confidence and helps them feel like they are doing a good job. We will continue to run all these programs long after the campaign ends – it has always

been a part of what we do and we want families to branch out and come to the library, it is their community centre.”

Mount Gambier Library’s Bek Coates runs the early childhood programs and has partnered with Playgroup SA’s Belinda McLaren to put together this Wednesday’s event.

The library will also be inaugurating a Sensitive Santa program as well so keep an eye on social media for details, while the Under 5 programs – Christmas in the Cave – will also be running.

Must-see exhibition unveiled in Millicent

Local artists shine in the 2022 Wattle Range Art Exhibition

“Art makes a vibrant community and tonight we have art in abundance. Diversity and complexity equals individuality and we can all enjoy this diversity.”

They were the words of Wattle Range Mayor Des Noll as he officially unveiled the 2022 Wattle Range Art Exhibition earlier this month.

A large crowd took the opportunity to be on hand to see the diverse range of entries and hear rhe winners of each category announced.

JoJo Spook’s ‘The Hitchhiker’ won the prestigious Wattle Range Art Prize, a sculpture made from Ghostnets and found objects, while runner up was local indigenous artist Jennifer Bishop’s ‘The Whale

Kondili Dreaming Story’ which resonated with Dr Lisa Slade, who knew the story.

Julie Ann McEwen’s ‘Flowers for Millecent Glen’ took out one of the other top prizes on the night with her beautiful mixed media piece featuring watercolour, collaged repurposed paper and cloth, intricately threaded announced as the winner of the Mayoral Prize.

Manager libraries and gallery and exhibition curator Janice Nitschke said the opening and announcement of prize winners was an outstanding success.

“Both the Gallery and Library were packed beyond expectation for the opening with artists, friends, and community,” she said. “Adelaide judges Dr Lisa Slade

(AGSA) and Emeritus Professor Kay Lawrence AM were amazed by both the numbers at the opening and the art.

“They spoke highly of the 189 entries and the 70 student works entered by artists from Penola High School and St Anthony’s Primary students and they reminded us how fortunate we were to have such a vibrant arts community.”

There were a raft of other award winners, including long time supporter of the exhibition Julie Kent, who won the painting category with a landscape titled ‘Coastline’, whilst Hamish’s mesmerising ‘The Look’ was runner up, a brooding eagle in black and white enamel on canvas. Millicent artist, Carol Baxter’s ‘Leafy Sea Dragon’ was highly commended.

Anne Mile’s ‘Lake McIntyre’ a beautiful print of two birds in the reeds at the Lake, a two plate linocut, won the Drawing and Printmaking category, with Janet Cane’s drawing ‘Birds’ named runner up.

Penola artist Dagny Strand’s beautiful small sculpture – a brooch - a ‘Windy Day in Petticoat Lane’ made from recycled electroplated nickel silver and piano wire won the sculpture section. The front depicted washing on the line in Petticoat Lane taken in at night and hung out during the day. Runner up was first time entrant Toni Greenwood and her sculpture ‘Over the Old Vineyard’.

Another Penola artist, Cate Bell, won the Mixed Media category with her encaustic piece titled ‘Gotta Love the Weekends’, featuring a piece of pizza. Nita Von Stanke’s ‘Morning Light’, an evocative and moody piece

depicting a forest, was runner up.

In the Textile category, Jo Fife’s ‘Specimen 001’, a free motion stitching of algae was the winner.

Whilst runner-up was Chrissy Pudney’s ‘Lost and Found’ - a beautiful bowl made from weaving wire and rope and beach debris.

Marg Hage’s ‘Around Each Corner’ and Jayne Stacey’s ‘Lepus Timidus’ were highly commended in this section.

Glenda Sutardy and Paul Sundstrom both won first time entrant’s awards, among what was a record number of artists exhibiting on the first occasion.

The judges also commented on the quality of the youth entries, particularly that of Sophie Tilley who won the Youth award with her beautiful painting of ‘Bolt’ – the

black and white family dog and Angus Patterson, who was runnerup. Awards were also handed out to Fraser from St Anthony’s Primary and Jordan Dinnison from Penola High School.

“The exhibition continues through to the 21st of December in the Millicent Gallery, and we encourage everyone to come along and have a look, it really is a must see,” Mrs Nitschke said.


Community Christmas lunch with a twist

Organising committee looking to put together personal care packs for 2022 festive event

The Mount Gambier Community Christmas Lunch has been supporting people in need on the Limestone Coast for more than 10 years and will again this year.

In that time organisers, volunteers and sponsors have provided lunch and a festive atmosphere for approximately 130 guests and are again expecting a capacity crowd. For many guests, this event is the only way they can celebrate Christmas Day by way of a three-

course meal and gifts. This year the meal will be cooked by chef Richard.

In past years, local businesses, residents and community organisations have provided invaluable support, and will do so again this year but the organising committee is also looking for some help to provide much-appreciated personal packs. Organisers would like the packs to contains

toothpaste, a toothbrush and soap. If anyone is able to donate any of the items, or all of them in a small pack, your generosity would be very much appreciated. The items or packs can be dropped off to the Bendigo Bank branch on James Street, or the Mount Gambier Golf Club on Attamurra Road. Alternatively, if you would like to donate any funds to purchase the items on your behalf, please contact Vicki Clark 0488 100 062.

Combine the crème fraîche , mayonnaise , lime juice and seasoning in a jug. Cover and set aside to allow the flavours to develop. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Place the oil in a large baking dish and preheat for 5 minutes. Add the sweet potato and corncob . Bake, turning halfway through cooking, for 40 minutes or until the sweet potato is crisp and corn is tender. Transfer the sweet potato to a serving platter. Use a sharp knife to cut down the length of the cob close to the core to remove the kernels. Scatter corn on top of the sweet potato with the capsicum and shallot. Drizzle over the chipotle dressing and sprinkle with oregano to serve.

Mental health boost

Inaugural Close 2 Home Festival hands over $6000 in funding for four local community groups

2 Home Festival have handed over the $6000 the event raised for local mental health and suicide prevention.

The final tally was thanks to the musical talent willing to grace the two stages in operation on the day as well as the generous support of

local business and the community with the event just as committed to not just raising funds but also awareness of mental health issues.

The Close 2 Home committee worked hard for the eight months leading into the October festival to coordinate this inaugural event, garnering amazing support from

through to financial funding from the State Government – Music Development office and the See it Live Grants and a community grant from OneFortyOne.

The main goal of the festival was raising essential funds for mental health and suicide prevention for the Limestone Coast region, with the funds split between four local groups - Headspace Mount Gambier, Four Reasons Why, Mount Gambier & Districts Suicide Prevention Group and the SE Junction ensuring that all the funds raised stay within the region.

Artists from across Australia, traveling from Perth, Sydney and Adelaide and Geelong, and of course some of Mount Gambier’s best musicians converged on the stages at the Mount Gambier Bowls Club and its versatile covered green.

Close 2 Home Festival chairperson Natasha Little said there were people across the whole venue throughout the whole nine hours of the event with more than 300 attendees throughout the day, which included all the volunteers and artists.

Local muso Michael ‘Willo’ Wilson was a key driver of the event given it started with his own campaign to raise funds for mental health awareness

Organisers left the donation link open until the end of October, which was Mental Health Awareness Month, and were able to hand over a share of the $6000 final tally to each of the four Limestone Coast providers.

The Close 2 Home Festival committee is starting to organise next year’s event with performers from the 2022 event keen to return. Keep an eye on their social media platforms for further information, including a confirmed 2023 date which is set to be announced in the coming weeks.

More foreshore funding

Multi-million dollar Portland Foreshore taking shape

A further jigsaw piece has been added to the Portland Foreshore puzzle, with additional funding secured for the popular recreational precinct.

The Glenelg Shire Council has been successful in securing a $900,000 grant from the State Government’s Regional Infrastructure Fund for further Foreshore improvements, with the funding allocated for lighting and the creation of a Traditional Owner dance space.

The grant is the latest in the multi-million funding windfall for the Foreshore, which has seen the creation of new connecting pathways, a new Town Jetty, a Marina extension, over-water boardwalks and a soon to be constructed multi-purpose facility.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Scott Martin said the latest funding was another key element of the Portland Foreshore Master Plan.

“We’re thrilled to receive further funding for our ‘jewel in the crown’ Portland Foreshore, adding to our unique recreational experience, and enhancing the tourism and lifestyle profile of our region,” he said.

“This funding will help implement two projects. The first is the installation of lighting along the 1.3km stretch of connecting pedestrian pathways and the

second is the installation of a dance and ceremonial space for Traditional Owners.

“The installation of lighting will enable greater use of the Foreshore, and, coupled with the newly installed connecting paths, will allow for passive recreation at night and in the early morning. Sunrises along the Portland Foreshore are particularly spectacular, and residents will now be able to enjoy these views more often and more safely.

“The dance and ceremonial space will be a dedicated space for our Traditional Owners and

provide opportunities to run community workshops, ceremonies and share education and truth telling. By celebrating history and culture, this space will help to foster greater understanding and reconciliation with our First Nations people.

“We thank the State Government for funding these important projects and for helping to realise our vision of the Portland Foreshore Master Plan.”

Ecovative photographic exhibition

Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre hosts a series by indigenous multidisciplinary artist

Multidisciplinary artist Naomi Hobson is opening her evocative photographic series, Adolescent Wonderland, at The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre, on Friday 25 November at 6:00pm.

Celia Dottore, Project Manager Tarnanthi, Art Gallery of South Australia, will launch Adolescent Wonderland in Mount Gambier as its state-wide regional tour continues.

Adolescent Wonderland depicts young Aboriginal people from Hobson’s community of Coen on Cape York Peninsula.

Naomi Hobson is a Southern Kaantju/Umpila woman who lives in Coen, a small town of 360 people in far north Queensland. Inspired by her immediate environment, Hobson’s works express her ongoing connection to Country and her ancestors’ ties and relationships with their traditional lands. She is a multidisciplinary artist who regularly works across painting, ceramics and photography mediums.

In her Adolescent Wonderland series, Hobson works to empower young people, encourage them to be themselves, and celebrate their uniqueness.

Through her work, Hobson references her family’s political and social engagements and her engagement with her Country and community.

Her photographic series allows the viewer to become part of the community and provides an insight into the vulnerability, playfulness and everyday moments of a generation transitioning from teenagers into adults.

“I think young people are getting crazy adventurous with all the apps and photo settings in their mobile phones,” Naomi said. “They’re just really connecting with how they want to share their story. Young people are so advanced in using technology, and they also love getting their photos taken, but let them show you their story, their way; that’s what Adolescent Wonderland is all about.

“Today photography needs to push the boundary… I’m using the medium to tell real stories that I feel don’t get told or haven’t been told. I want people to see who our youth really are: fun, playful, smart, savvy, proud, adventurous and witty.”

Manager Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre Diana Warnes said

Naomi Hobson created a dynamic series of works celebrating youth from her community. We are delighted to host this captivating, joyous exhibition.

The Riddoch’s Studio Sessions on Sunday, December 11 to January 15 will host photography editing workshops for beginners who want to make colour-popping edits to their photos.

Visitors are also invited to participate in a “Where’s Your Wonderland” photography competition, encouraging participants to capture their everyday worlds for a chance to win. The photographs are also displayed digitally as part of the exhibition.

The Adolescent Wonderland series was first commissioned by

the Cairns Art Gallery with funding from the Queensland Government through the Arts Queensland Backing Indigenous Arts initiative.

The current, expanded exhibition was created for the Tarnanthi Open Hands exhibition in 2020, presented by the Art Gallery of South Australia with Principal

Partner BHP and support from the Government of South Australia.

Naomi Hobson: Adolescent Wonderland is on display until Sunday, January 22, next year at The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre, 1 Bay Road Mount Gambier.

Softballers getting fully loaded for charity

Mount Gambier Softball League holding a special event for cancer awareness

It started as a way to honour a past player from the Warriors Softball Club who lost her battle with breast cancer and by the time Warriors player Mel Chuck had finished with the idea, it had become an All Star event, incorporating players from across the league.

Aside from honouring all local softballers who have lost their cancer battle, it is now a fundraising event and an opportunity to promote an adapted version of softball – Fully Loaded.

“Our club began talking with Lorraine Musgrove who is the chairperson of the Mount Gambier Cancer Support Group and from this we decided to dedicate a fundraiser to raising monies for such a worthy local charity,” Mel said and Lorraine and her group perfectly fit the bill.

The Mount Gambier Cancer Support Group was established in 1980 with the goal to support individuals and families suffering from cancer. It provides support in the form of assisting with medical expenses, travel and accommodation expenses for treatment, food vouchers, providing emotional support and information to cancer patients and their families as needed.

The initial concept was to dedicate a round of this softball season to cancer awareness and with the support of the Mount Gambier Softball League, the All Star Fully Loaded Softball event was borne.

“The executive committee of the league loved the idea of supporting such an important group to our community and the idea of the All Star Fully Loaded Softball event,” Mel said. “The support I have received by all the clubs for this event has been

amazing. For the match, we have divided 22 All Star Players who have been individually handpicked by their clubs to represent our league in the event.”

Fully Loaded is a relatively new form of softball that has been mainly promoted at the elite level and was one form of the game where former Mount Gambier softballer Georgia Hood was able to attract the attention of national selectors.

“This match is unlike any other softball match - the game starts with bases loaded with runners, the fencing is brought in and with

our star studded squad it is a hit parade of homeruns, base stealing and impressive defensive plays,” Mel said. “As all softball games the winner is decided by the team with the most runs at the end of the game.”

The game is this Friday night from 6pm and there is a raffle running with tickets available on the night and while it is all about cancer awareness, it is a rare change for the league to showcase its sort and is players.

“This event has all of us at the Mount Gambier Softball League excited to promote such an

important local support group and showcase our talented players,” Mel said. “Players involved in both squads have represented the Lower South East in the South Australia State Championships in premiership sides over many years.”

Local businesses have also thrown their support behind the Fully Loaded All Stars event and along with the raffle there will be other fundraising opportunities on the night, including a BBQ and the canteen preparing our special of the night, fully loaded fries.

Mount Gambier Golf Club hosts ladies match play finals & so much more

Last Wednesday was the semi finals of the handicap match play competition at the Mount Gambier Golf Club. These two matches were very close with the game between Leanne Hunt and Janina Morrison finishing on the 19th hole. This was a close encounter all the way but Hunt managed to take the win on the last hole. In the other match

Lizzie Clements was the victor over Jess Parsons in a great contest with Parsons clawing her way back only to lose on the 18th hole. Hunt now plays Clements and this should be a fantastic match with Hunt having to give a considerable amount of strokes and will have to bring her best game to pull off the win.

Congratulations to both ladies for making the final.

Thirty-two players also took to the course last Wednesday in conjunction with the match play finals. Conditions were cool and windy for this time of the year which reflected in some of the scores for

the day. The ever consistent Carol Davis won Division 1 with 36 points followed closely by Helen McIntyre on 35pts. In Division 2 Debbie Sheather had a win on 35 points with Maxine McGregor next on 33 points.

Di ODonnell was the most accurate on the 8th hole and ntp 2nd shots winners were Faye Mainwaring in A Grade and Maxine McGregor in C Grade.

A small field of six ladies braved the weather last Saturday to play a par round. Janina Morrison wasn’t deterred as she carded a great score of 5 up leaving the rest of the field way behind by 7 shots. Faye Mainwaring and Helen Heaver were the next best with 2 down. Morrison scoring 6 pars and 2 birdies in her impressive round.

History made in round three table tennis action

Mount Gambier Table Tennis club held its fourth round of the Spring season last week, comprehensive beatings and outright shellackings the order of the day in all grades.

Leigh Barry once again starred with a sublime clean sheet, this time with Aaron McPhee also playing a blinder alongside him, together they guided Macca Pacca to a dominant 10-1 victory over Bill-John Watson’s Billwillies team in their A Grade matchup. Kevin Patzel also contributed solidly with a couple of wins for the victors, while Robin Pellen could walk away with his head held high for Billwillies, defeating Patzel in 5 and pushing McPhee all the way in their encounter.

The second A Grade match was another one-sided affair, Travis Sweet and Rowan Hardcastle (pictured) both showing their class to give Goin’ Rowan a tight 7-5 win over Ben Newman’s Benz team. Newman had the chance to square the ledger and send it to a countback when he faced up to Sweet in the climactic rubber of the night, but it was always going to be an uphill battle for him when Sweet claimed the first game in style. Newman fought back bravely, taking the second game in a cliff-hanger, before Sweet edged ahead once again, taking the third. Refusing to lie down, Newman powered to a comfortable win in the fourth game, however this only appeared to spur Sweet to lift another gear. The Goin’ Rowan team’s number 1 player scooted out to an early lead in the decider and never looked back, claiming the game and with it victory for his team.

Both B Grade matches produced lopsided results. Firstly Peter McKenzie maintained an unbeaten singles record on the night to inspire his Outer Limits team to a comfortable 8-4 win over Rob Halleday’s Wanderers, then the Bachmann boys together with Nick Sweet all put on an absolute clinic, their Rennick Raiders absolutely dismantling Rayelene Hutchesson’s Ray Ban team to the tune of 11 rubbers to 1. Chris McGregor and Dapo Olutayo both managed to keep their singles sheets clean for New Experience, but it wasn’t enough to stop an even team performance from Richard Horrigan’s Ramjet, who ran out comfortable 7-4 winners in their C Grade match.

The final C Grade match of the night saw Richard Van Der Linde’s Vandals completely outplayed by Nudee Cook’s Lendy team. Andrew Schubert was the hero for the victors, posting a clean singles sheet on the night, while father and son Van Der Linde, Richard and Lenny, both fought valiantly for their Vandals team but were powerless to prevent the 10-4 demolition.

Mount Gambier Table Tennis Club is always welcoming of new players of all ages, experience, and capability. Practice is held at 7pm on Monday nights and competition is at 7pm on Wednesday nights at the Mount Gambier Showgrounds Hall. Anyone interested in having a go, please contact the club at or find the club’s Facebook page, or just come along on a Monday night and speak to a friendly welcoming committee member.

Undefeated players: A Grade: Leigh Barry, Aaron McPhee (Macca Pacca), Travis Sweet, Rowan Hardcastle (Goin’ Rowan)

B Grade: Peter McKenzie (Outer Limits), Maddie McGregor (Wanderers), Mark Bachmann, Dale Bachmann, Nick Sweet (Rennick Raiders)

C Grade: Andrew Schubert (Lendy), Chris McGregor, Dapo Olutayo (New Experience)

Star studded field for Mount Gambier Gift

Australian representatives, Gift winners & talented locals all set to vie for a sash

There is more than $11,000 in prizemoney on the line and 15 finals to be run and won at Vansittart Park this Saturday as some of the nation’s best athletes and some talented local hopes compete in the Mount Gambier Gift meet.

There will also be an extended Little Athletics program with invitations extended beyond the Mount Gambier club to the other six in the region.

There are a number of high profile competitors from the

athletics world converging on Mount Gambier to try an secure a sash with the most high profile being Australian athletes Riley Cook and Izzy Batt-Doyle (pictured right at the finish line of the Melbourne Marathon).

The duo ran a coaching session with the Mount Gambier Little Athletics Club last year and this year have timed the visit to coincide with not just the Mount Gambier Gift but also the Blue Lake Fun Run – adding star power to both major events.

“We really enjoyed our trip last year and meeting all the kids and families at both the Mount Gambier Little Athletics club and Blue Lake Parkrun,” Izzi said. “The running community in Mount Gambier is thriving at the moment and we can’t wait to get back down and be involved. We look forward to being involved in both the gift and the Blue Lake Fun Run”

Izzi competed at the Tokyo Olympics and placed eighth in the Birmingham Commonwealth Games in the 5000 and 10,000m, as well as, just last month, securing the fastest time ever by a female debutant in the Melbourne Marathon in a time of 2:28:10.

Riley also had a strong

The duo also founded RunAsOne – an Adelaide based training group with than 400 members and a runners café in Norwood – The RunHouse.

The Aussie runners are running this Friday night’s Little Athletics session and will be competing in the 1600 and 3200m events at Saturday’s Mount Gambier Gift meet before lining up in the Blue Lake Fun Run on Sunday, The national stars will be joined by a litany of other strong contenders for the Gift sprint titles:

• Javon Brijmohan - Bay Sheffield Winner 2021

• Matthew Forrest - Loxton Gift Winner 2022

• Tayla Philis - Camden Classic Winner 2022

• Luke Bero - Bay Sheffield 550m Winner 2019

• John Evans - Bay Sheffield 550m 2018 & Camden Classic Winner 2019

Club championships decided at Blue Lake

Plenty of golf being played on the Blue Lake Golf Club course as the year comes to a close

It was a big weekend of golf recently at the Blue Lake Golf Club and very fortuitous that the weather behaved.

Firstly Saturday, November 12, saw the running of the prestigious Wayne Scutter Memorial Invitational Event. In the women’s section Fiona Punton was the overall nett score winner posting nett 68 her card included pars on the 2nd, 14th, 15th and 17th. Helen Stratford won the second best nett score of 69 with Helen Myers 3rd best nett of 70. Off the stick score of 91 was won by Stratford off a 22 handicap on a countback from Myers off a 21 handicap. Stratford won the pro-shot and Josie Ashby the Long drive.


The Division One and Two finals both came down to the wire and didn’t disappoint the entertainment value for the spectators. The weather was perfect for the 36 hole event for Division One and 27 holes for Division Two.

Top qualifier Ronda Edwards for Division One had to fight hard to win the prestigious title meeting Dianne Perryman who has won several club championships over the years. After the first nine holes the score was all square and crossing over to the 10th Perryman had a win with the scores seesawing until she parred the 16th making her two down after 18 holes. After a break for lunch it was back to the 1st (19th) both squaring it, then Edwards took control winning the 20th, parring the 23rd, 24th 26th and 27th going into the last nine five up. Perryman was able to win the 28th to the 31st holes making her only one down. A squared 32nd hole followed by a par for Edwards on the 34th this had her two up with two holes to go. Perryman wasn’t finished

just yet parring the 35th, now one down. Edwards got the win on the 36th dropping a crucial putt, an excellent exhibition.

Moving on to the epic Division Two final between top qualifier Beryl Mahoney and Kate Hommelhoff ended in going to the 28th hole in a sudden death playoff. It was Mahoney’s first time in a grand final and Hommelhoff is the current handicap champion both play off a similar handicap so it was always expected to be a close battle. After the first nine holes Mahoney was two up, the scores see-sawing for the next nine with Mahoney one up after 18 then stopping for lunch. The pressure was on and a win for Hommelhoff on the 19th squared the score, Mahoney answered winning the 20th. The next three holes were squared, score back to square. A win on the 24th for Hommelhoff, a win for Mahoney on the 26th then things got very intense after Hommelhoff won the 27th sending them into sudden death playing the 10th (28th). Mahoney was the victor winning the silverware.


A stableford pairs four ball better ball was played last Wednesday.

• 1st - Annette Ford/Lyn Gill had 44 points and Gill added to her contribution with four-four pointers.

• 2nd - Dianne Allen/Shannon McDonnell 40 points.

• 3rd - Josie Ashby/Cherryl Hill 39 points

• 4th - Lynette Hirth/Trudy Herbert 37 points c/b - Helen Myers/Jenny Johnson

Nearest to the pin 2nd shot on 16th winners were Ronda Edwards and Jaynee Oberer. Pro shot winner was Sue Agars and ferret winners were Rosemary Martland and Jenny Johnson.

Young athletes impress on State stage

Little Athletics Mount Gambier spawns new stars of track & field

Six up and coming Mount Gambier and District Little Athletics Centre athletes, Emily Lynch, Jena Jagger, Les Jagger, Jacob Gordon, Josh Cameron, and Lachlan Brierley headed up to Adelaide to compete in the 2022 VIVA SA All Schools Championships with their coach Sally Taylor.

For three of the athletes, Jacob Gordon, Josh Cameron, and Lachlan Brierley, this was their first time competing at this level.

They all enjoyed the experience, made new friends, and had some good results.

Lachlan is new to athletics, and this was his first major athletics event outside of SAPSASA. He competed in quite a few events over the two days coming away with two bronze medals for the U15 discus and U15 shot put.

Jacob Gordon competed in the U14 javelin finishing fourth and the U14 discus taking out the bronze medal with a throw of 34.01m and a new personal best.

Jena Jagger competed in the U16 100m finishing 10th, the U16 200m finishing ninth just outside of the final. She made the final of the U16 400m finishing in fifth place,

with a new personal best against a very strong field.

Les Jagger has been working hard on his middle distance running and he finished ninth in the U14 1500m and then stepped up to the U15 3000m finishing with the bronze medal.

Josh Cameron, like Les, has been working hard on his middle distance running and has a great

winter season winning a couple of events in Adelaide, Josh’s hard work is paying off. He competed in the U14 800m finishing with a silver medal by the slimmest of margins, Louis Pietsch, first in 4:36.86 and Josh second in 4:36.91. Josh also competed in the U14 1500m finishing with a silver medal just behind Louis again.

Emily Lynch continued her great

form from last couple of seasons, competing in the U16 3000m walk and finished with the gold medal in a time of 16.16:48, this was under the National Qualifier and Emily’s second U16 3000m walk SA All Schools title. She then had a quick 30-minute turnaround to compete in the U16 2000m Steeplechase, finishing with the silver medal, which was a great result

considering the time between events. Emily also competed in the U17 5000m walk taking out the silver medal in a time of 28.05:46 this time was also under the National Qualifier.

The 2022 Australian All Schools Championships will be held in Adelaide in December and both Emily Lynch and Josh Cameron have made the South Australian State team. This is a huge honor for both athletes to wear the state colours and compete against the best young athletes in the country.

The work has only just started and Sally Taylor their coach let them have a light training on the Monday after All Schools but then they were back into their work.

All of the athletes had a great time and would not be competing at this level if it wasn’t for the commitment and guidance of Sally Taylor and their families’ support. Sally said she wasa proud of all the athletes that competed and the squad that train with them.

“It is not always about the race, it’s about how they got there and the people that helped along the way,” Sally said. “We are from the Mount - we are country.”

Riders tackle familiar course

Young riders dominate the podium positions for latest Spring Series race

In a slight change to the planned event at the start of the series, the Mount Gambier Cycling Club returned to the familiar Caves Road course for the latest race in their Spring series.

Thirteen riders signed on for the race, and were assigned into their handicap categories.

First rider away was Jason Buckland, with Jen Buckland and Damian Buckley joined by Bruce McLaughlin in having to wait six minutes before their opportunity to begin the chase.

A further five minute wait ensued before Elmer Buckland and Dean Zeven teamed up to begin their chase.

A large group, consisting of Niel van Niekerk, Jami Buckley, Craig Andrae, Malcolm Tirabassi, Matthew Opperman and Patrick Langsmith waited another seven minutes before they were given their starting orders, and a further 30 seconds later Nick Kidman began his effort to chase all others down.

Speeds were high on the journey down to the turnaround marker, with riders enjoying a tailwind for the first part of the ride. Each of the groups were working hard, but the back riders still had over 5km of

road to catch up to the leader at the turnaround.

Out in front the speed slowed considerably after the turnaround and the riders found the wind in their faces.

The benefit of being in a group and taking turns to rest behind other riders, rather than constantly pushing into the head wind, came to the fore in this part of the race, with the large group maintaining their strong pace.

With 10km to the finish, Elmer and Dean had caught up to Damian,

Jen and Bruce, with the latter two riders holding on to their wake as they passed.

With 8km to go, as they were passing Jason for the lead, Elmer decided to push the pace and see if he could solo away for the victory.

After being unable to hold his wheel, Bruce, Dean and Jen worked together to see if their teamwork could drag him back into their reach.

Niel, Matthew, Craig and Jami had also pulled away from their

erstwhile companions and were working hard to catch the riders in front.

As the finish line came into view, Elmer Buckland was able to hold off the challengers and win by approximately 300m over Dean Zeven, Jen Buckland and Bruce McLaughlin, with Niel van Niekerk, Matthew Opperman, Jami Buckley and Craig Andrae closing fast but just running out of time.

They were followed by Jason Buckland, Nick Kidman, Patrick Langsmith, Damian Buckley, and
