It was great to be back amongst friends this Tuesday morning after the festive break and it was amazing to see such a good turnout. I must admit that after the few weeks of festivities I am glad to get some routine back starting now. Colin Hill was thrown straight into the fire being given the Chairpersons role at his first meeting since his induction and was a true pro guiding the meeting through to finish. Good thing he was such a trooper as I had to start the year by postponing the AGM to next week due to a technical error (my bad Chris!!). After an amazing breakfast (thanks Gary and Leonie), we were treated to the basics of Pilates thanks to our resident physio, member Mina Ward. We were shown how to pull our belly buttons out to our pelvis and to form neutral position (sounds crazy but works!) From here we went through a few basic movements which Mina advised if we did each morning we would all be a great deal healthier. Thanks for taking us through those exercises Mina...maybe I should continue to give it a go after the amount of celebrating I did this festive season...it may motivate some of us yet!! After our Pilates session Sergeant Kirsty took us through a game of Temperature True or False which was won by Siony. There were too many Fahrenheit conversions for this little black duck, but well done Siony. Teaching science finally came in handy at Rotary. We were given a Carlo update by Brenton and from the sounds of things he is having a great time with his host family, the Hectors. I have seen some photos of him sunning and surfing the lucky bugger, oh to be young again!! (Editor’s Note: you are young Pres). He is heading to the Stirling’s later this month with who I am sure he will continue to have a great time. Just a reminder, that if you can spare a Saturday or Sunday it would be an amazing opportunity to get to know him a little better as he is an amazing young man. A quick note to finish up, it is with regret that RC Magill Sunrise foundation member Rita Stirling has resigned from the club. Reet’s retirement from work and the move to North Adelaide were significant factors. I will personally miss her contribution and guidance but still hope to see her from time to time at club functions in the future. See you all next week. GREG

Australian History 1804 – The first recorded cricket match takes place in the New South Wales colony. 1814 – George Evans advocates building a road over the Blue Mountains, to follow in the tracks of Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth. 1931 – The largest Australian gold nugget of the twentieth century is found in Kalgoorlie.

World History 1676 – King Charles II of England is forced to withdraw his Proclamation Suppressing Coffee Houses, delivered only twelve days earlier. Thought for the Day 1: Always use tasteful words. You may have to eat them. Thought for the Day 2: When all else fails, read the instructions.

Rotary Fines 8th January 2012

• • •

• • • •

Myself, for being 2 minutes late to start the meeting. Brenton, for distracting me in conversation and making me late. Greg, for using the term “my bad” that was fresh from the weekend newspaper – apparently his language is too modern for Rotary. Editor’s Note: maybe he should have added ‘Dude’ for more credibility. Mark T, for asking if clothes were optional for today’s ‘Temperature Game’ and because he didn’t immediately believe Shirley that his shirt was made from seersucker material. The “Organised Table” – Mina, Ian and Carol – for all putting up their hands straight away when member notices were called for. I was going to let Ronda, the fourth member of the table, off, but then found out that she was the one behind the information packs for the District Conference. Sorry Ronda! Ian, for confusing the Shed Sale with the market again. Anyone who’s broken their New Year’s Resolution already. Everyone who didn’t bother to make a New Year’s Resolution. Numerous Cross Fines.

The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by every Rotarian of their occupation as an opportunity to serve society. The application of the ideal service by every Rotarian to their personal, business and community life. The advancement of international international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional people united in the ideal of service.

The Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it Fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

For good food, good fellowship And the opportunity to serve through Rotary …we give thanks.
