Greg’s Gazette Useless Trivia Photos 785 Kop It From Kirsty Footy Tips Next Meeting

The start of this week’s meeting had a real Olympic feel for obvious reasons. Thanks must go to Gary for decking me out in that fine outfit and organizing the fun. The thermos torch was a real highlight. From then on the rest of the meeting had a real Youth Exchange bearing starting with our guest Penny Butler. She was our clubs first outbound Youth Exchange Student in 2006 and was hosted in Denmark. She had such a good time and made so many lasting relationships she is heading back next month to visit. Then our speaker for the morning was our current inbound Youth Exchange student Carlo Montanelli. He gave us a PowerPoint presentation on his home and family. For those that do not know Carlo is from Lecco in northern Italy, a small city at the south eastern end of Lake Como. It really looked like a beautiful area of lakes and mountains so it is no surprise that Carlo is a keen snowboarder. Carlo has settled in nicely with Brenton and his family and is really enjoying his time at Norwood Morialta High School. As an avid sports person, Carlo has already joined the school basketball team and after enjoying a Crows and Norwood football game we may be able to persuade him to try this (being 190cm I’d say he would do alright). Kirsty’s game bought the Olympic feel back; she called it Olympic Sides and Corners. The multiple choice questions about women at the Olympics had us running to all corners of the room, but as with all games there was only one winner and that was Chris Gascoigne. See you Tuesday,

1900 – The Western Australia votes to join the Commonwealth of Australia. 1942 – The town of Mossman in far north Queensland is bombed by the Japanese. 1962 – Australian forces officially joined the Vietnam War.

1928 – For the first time Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's, MGM’s, Leo the lion roared. He was the introduction to MGM’s first talking picture, "White Shadows on the South Seas". 1971 –The first men to ever ride a vehicle on the moon did it in the LRV (lunar rover vehicle). This lunar dune buggy took Apollo 15 astronauts David R. Scott and James B. Irwin for five miles across the moon's surface.

Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

Mark M, for forgetting we had a new sergeant and going to Pauline to ask her to ring the gong. Greg, for his Olympic toga. (Too many dress-ups for one Presidential year already… and it’s only July!) John C, for winning the footy tipping again! Mark T, for his misogynistic anti-netball comments. All of the men in the room after today’s game revealed the inequality that has been shown to women at the Olympics in previous years. All of the women in the club were also invited to contribute a ‘happy dollar’ for being members of the better sex.

Unfortunately the Round 17 winner John Capoccia (Magill) falls victim to the ‘Frankish Rule’. This rule restricts the number of weekly prizes that a tipper can collect to ‘no more than two’. It was introduced after Morialta’s President Jeff Frankish collected 2 prizes early in the season and is designed to prevent professional tippers from dominating the competition. Ironically, it has only been used on Jeff and John – two tippers who have no claim to much interest in footy. This suggests that the rest of us are trying way too hard!!!. OK – so here’s a few other interesting facts: •

The Round 17 prize money will go to the runner-up Ian Carman who also got 9 correct tips (which he submitted about 3 weeks ago).

You may recall that the Round 16 prize money was destined for ‘Trigger’ at Stratco. However, he has kindly donated his prize to the Rotary Foundation and will simply retain the pride of winning. Thanks Steve.

In other news, Scott Nicholls (Campbelltown) receives our congratulations for passing the cumulative 1,000 point margin difference (compared with Mark Martin who only has only a 495 margin point difference to date).

And in closing, I think there should be some reward in life for consistency. So the Round 18 prize goes to the tipper who can repeat their score from Round 17 (with the best margin difference as the tie-breaker). In other words, if you got 7 correct last week, you need to get 7 this week ... or if you are like Kevin and Shirley Roberts - you need to get 1 (again) this week. GOOD LUCK. Editor’s Note: There is a special prize if any can recite this week’s rules by memory at next week’s meeting.
