MITCHELL CREEK ROCK N BLUES FEST F
A HIDDEN TREASURE
urther up the Bruce Hwy, on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, inland from the Noosa coastline in the Mary Valley, where the air is clear you can smell the bracken, and stars shine brightly in the sky, a boutique music event is held every September. The unique four day festival is held on private land, in a quiet valley nestled between mountains, backing on to untouched rainforest and State forestry. It has become a yearly pilgrimage for music and nature lovers all over Australia, growing organically year after year. It started mostly with the support of the locals, but soon word of mouth brought more and more people from further afar. For many people who regularly attend there is a fear that it will grow too popular and they will lose their coveted camping spot along the meandering creek or atop the mountain overlooking the festival site, however organisers promise that will never happen with numbers capped to maintain the ambience that the site has on offer. Now, in its 8th year Mitchell Creek has a reputation not only for the great location but also for featuring great emerging artists as well as supporting the finest Blues/Rock/Soul acts this country has to offer. This year is no exception, but in addition they have found a major international star, who has never before played in Australia, none other than British superstar Mungo Jerry (Ray Dorset). About Mungo Jerry: Without a doubt you have sung along to many of Mungo Jerry’s tunes over the years. To describe the music of Mungo Jerry pictured, there are various styles of rock, blues, boogie and skiffle in his mix. He shared the stage and indeed at times topped the bill with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, Rod Stewart & The Faces, Genesis, Status Quo, Canned Heat, and Free. As a young man in 1970 he was the face of an era, fronting a band who inspired a young Doc Neeson (The Angels) as well international stars; Joe Elliot (Def Leppard) Matt Letley (Status Quo) and Thom Yorke (Radiohead). Known for his unique vocal stylings and vocal percussive sounds, he was a fashion innovator, appearing in his black mesh top and red scarf − releasing his debut single, the worldwide No. 1 hit “In The Summertime”. That song is the third best-selling single worldwide to this day, with over 30 million copies in distribution. In total, Mungo Jerry has had eight UK chart singles, plus another seven non-UK chart hits around the world. Other hits songs include; “Baby Jump”, “Lady Rose”, “You Don’t Have To Be in the Army to Fight in the War”, “Open Up”, “Alright, Alright, Alright”, “Hello Nadine” and “Mungo’s Blues” to name a few. Ten years after his initial worldwide success, he penned another track, “Feels Like I'm In Love” for Elvis who unfortunately passed away before it could be released. The song however became a British number one hit for Kelly Marie in 1980 making #7 in the Australian Charts and often features in Mungo Jerry’s live set. Based in Europe, Mungo Jerry has enjoyed a very successful career, performing often in large sold out venues. His was the first band ever to have live television performances in all the countries behind the Iron Curtain where today he still performs to sell out audiences. The 2019 Line Up: Joining Mungo Jerry as one of the headliners this year is 90’s Australian Blues chart toppers The Badloves along with West Australian legends of Blues, Blue Shaddy. Both these artists have a dense history and strong support with Blues audiences worldwide. As always the Mitchell Creek lineup has a super strong female focus. The amazing Karen Lee Andrews fronts a long list of great Blues ladies showcased over the long weekend, including Sydney’s Liza Ohlback, who album charted at No.1 on Australia’s Blues and Roots Airplay Chart. (ABARAC). The lineup also includes outstanding artists from previous years, such as 19 Twenty, who are hands down the festival favourites. The Soul Men (Blues Brothers Tribute) are returning with their 12 piece show band, plus female “supergroup” The Soul Sisters (featuring Liza Ohlback, Ali Penney, Belle Henrik and Amanda Emblem) are set

to return for the Sunday morning “recovery/revival”. There are plenty of newcomers this year as well as emerging bands. Here are a couple of artists we have discovered recently and predict big things from in the future. The Moonsets. A mesmerising music act who’s lead singer performs on a 36 string electric Harp. Their style is hard to define, pushing new boundaries of instrumentation with an infectious earthy vibe. The Southbound Snake Charmers are a power trio from Melbourne who tick all the boxes when it comes to classic blues influences combined with youthful raw attitude. It’s their first time in Queensland where we expect they will be received very well. Full list of 2019 artists − their bios all on the website: Mungo Jerry (UK), The Badloves, Blue Shaddy, Karen Lee Andrews, 19 Twenty, Shaun Kirk, Phil Wiggins (US) and Dom Turner, The Streamliners, Benji & The Saltwater Sound System, Matty T Wall, Lazy Eye, The Bay Collective, Kings & Associates, The Moonsets, Lecia Louise, Southbound Snake Charmers, Lady Valiant, The Soul Sisters, The Hoochers, The Soul Men (Blues Brothers), Brewin’ The Blues, Zkye Blue, Liza Ohlback & The Mercy Train, Ali Penney & The Money Makers, The Amanda Emblem Experiment, Jimmy Watts Big Band, Milan Hendrik Express, Sky Eater, Two Tears In A Bucket, Pepper Jane, Tracey Hammell Band, Salt & Steel and Dillion James Band. Three stages: The music hardly stops at Mitchell Creek. The main stage consists of two performance spaces that alternate, so when one act finishes the next one starts. Once the main stage finishes (at a reasonable hour for those who need their beauty sleep) that’s when The Zeppelin Bar kicks off in the over 18 licensed area. Each year this “third” stage grows in popularity, and over time the stage and area has expanded. The Zeppelin Bar provides an up close and personal experience for patrons, with at least two acts every night, guest appearances, and opportunity for patrons to participate in a jam session. This year for the first time The Zeppelin Bar will fire up on Thursday evening from 8pm, with the main stages starting following day (Friday) at midday. Bring the kids! Held on the first weekend of Queensland school holidays in September, the timing of Mitchell Creek is perfect for families for a camping holiday. The kids have their own secure area, with all sorts of fun and free activities, including ukulele workshops, art and crafts, plus there’s jumping castle and bush volleyball. Bush Volleyball competition − Last year was a world first! With sand from the nearby Mary River, our bush volleyball is healthy fun for for everyone! Not just for the kids! Registrations are now open on the website for individuals and teams. Last years premiers, The Kingaroy Crusaders came together at the festival. They are returning in 2019 to defend their title. The competition is run by professional athletes, who also offer training and coaching for volleyballers of all skills and ages. Multicultural food fest and market stalls An array of different cuisines are on offer along with a large selection of market stalls selling everything from art and crafts, jewellery to temporary tattoos! Plus there’s a large merchandise tent where artists music and merchandise can be purchased. Camping, caravans, motorhomes free! It’s a camping festival so you can bring everything you need to make sure you have a great weekend. There’s even a special area for the folks who need to bring their pets, and a disabled area. Groups are encouraged to purchase VIP passes so they can allocate their camping space prior to the festival. Big Weekender passes include entry on the Thursday, specifically so you have time to set up camp before the music starts. There’s an abundance of toilets and hot showers too. If you’re not into the camping Motown Tent Motels can provide a private space to rest. See you all there on Thursday 19 Sept. to Sunday 22 Sept., 2019. Pre-purchase tix www.mitchellcreekrocknbluesfest.com.au Plus MCRNB event Sat 7 Sept. with overnight camping allowed and live music − cost $20 band contribution, BYO BBQ and drinks.

KENILWORTH ompetition was fierce at the Kenilworth Show in the 1930’s, particularly in the household section. In 1930 the trophy for the person gaining the most points throughout the show was shared by Mrs A. McGinn and Mrs F. Pearce with 35 points each. The following year Mrs Pearce scooped the pool scoring 60 points beating Mrs Burley into second place with 42 points. Mrs S. Holloway donated a trophy for needlework which was, in 1930, shared by Mrs W.C.C. Wright and Miss E. Loweke achieving 23 points each as well as being awarded Mrs R. Walters and the Show Society’s special prize. At the 1931 show Mrs Wright from Landsborough won the trophy for a second time. Mrs Walters special prize in 1931 was shared by Mrs J.W. Pickering and Miss Ethel Pickering. Mrs Holloway also donated a prize in the household section was won in both years by Miss Daphne Evans (who later became Mrs Russ Hassall). Mr H. Rowe’s trophy for the preserves section was won by Mrs. A. McGinn in 1930 and in 1931 it was divided between Mesdames G.A. Meyers and A. Burley. Mrs F. Pearce was the winner of the medal presented
by Yates and Co in the Horticulture in 1930. Pictured L-R Pearl Houston, Francie Pickering and Connie Pearce Also that year a gold medal presented by Brunton’s Flour was won by Miss E. McGinn. Laura Sutton (later Mrs Ron Myers) won Mrs S. Holloway’s trophy in the juvenile section in 1930 whereas in 1931 the prize was shared by Irene Hateley, Pearl Houston (later Mrs Bernie Furner), Francie Pickering (Mrs Ernie Davie) and Connie Pearce (Mrs Vic Wickerson). The dressed weight of the fat pig in 1931 was 963/4 lbs which no one correctly estimated. The nearest being within a quarter of a pound were Messrs J. Bridges, T. Hilder, C. Loweke, Mrs Smith (Brooloo), Misses J.F. Collins and V.C Schaefer (Brisbane) and they divided the prize. In 1930 a set of copper brands donated by Surgical Supplies Ltd was won by Mr Les Holt and swingle bars donated by Mr H. Keylar was won by Mr. V. McGinn.

ince last year the Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee (MRCCC) has been working out of the small office at the back of the Kenilworth Information Centre on the 4th Wednesday of each month. This has proved to be a great opportunity for MRCCC staff to meet with landholders who are involved in river care projects in the area. We are going to double our presence at this office to every 2nd and 4th Wednesday until the end of October to coincide with the Sunshine Coast Council Landholder Environment Grants that are now open.

ne years for Kenilworth Show & Rodeo Get your best hat and your boots out and come along to this exciting milestone celebration of agriculture and community! The Kenilworth Show and Rodeo is celebrating its centenary year on Saturday, 21 September and it promises to be a fantastic day of activities! I hope to be out there celebrating with you all! Conondale Public Amenities Building – update I previously shared that work on this project commenced in mid-May. I’m now pleased to share that works are nearing completion, after a slight delay due to some unexpected issues with the previous amenities. Visitors and locals alike can look forward to using these handy and sustainable resources at Conondale Memorial Recreation Park by the end of August. Dealing with feral animals At its July Ordinary Meeting, my fellow councillors and I unanimously endorsed the continuation of council’s program to prevent and control declared feral animals in the region. This program has been in operation since 2016 and targets specific species including wild dogs, feral pigs, goats, cats, deer, European foxes and rabbits and Indian Myna birds. Feral animal impacts are wide-spread and include damage to our region’s agricultural and horticultural crops, livestock and native species. During September, council will work with participating residents to run the Community Wild Dog Baiting program, which was set up in response to community requests for assistance to manage wild dogs on their properties. For more information on pest animals and council services, visit council’s website.
CR GREG ROGERSON | DIVISION 10 SUNSHINE COAST
he Kenilworth Show and Rodeo really is, in my opinion, a “must see” on the Sunshine Coast events calendar. This year’s show is happening on Saturday 21 September and regardless of whether you’re a local reading this or someone from outside of the Kenilworth area, mark it in your diary and head along on the day because you’re guaranteed a great time! Designer Dunny due date In my May column I mentioned that construction of the Designer Dunny in Isaac Moore Park was off and running and expected to be complete around the end of this year. Well I’m very pleased to say that the estimated completion date will be far earlier than reported, with the new facility set to be ready within weeks. A BIG thankyou to David Cole and Graham White from the Designer Dunny Group and particularly to Graham who has very generously donated his landscaping and nursery nous and combined with David, is helping us complete the landscaping works around the new sculptured amenity. Keep an eye out for some striking new grass trees and a replica rocky river bed which will be planted and installed around the immediate site shortly! It’s quite amazing to see and hear that so much hinterland resident sentiment has turned in favour of the Designer Dunny as the project has materialised. I’ve heard from a great many people who admitted to me that they were genuine sceptics when the project was first announced, but have since changed their tunes as they’ve seen the project come to life in Isaac Moore Park. As I’ve said from the very beginning, this project is about providing an important, striking facility, in a place where it is genuinely needed by the community and visitors alike, plus it was about designing and building a piece of infrastructure in such a way that it becomes an iconic tourist attraction and a point of difference for Kenilworth. Win your rates! How would you like to win up to $1000 off your next rates bill? All you need to do is head to Council’s website, sign-in to MyCouncil or create a MyCouncil account before Wednesday 21 August and sign up to receive your future rates notices via email and you’ll be in the running. Receiving your rates online is not only financially and environmentally cost-effective but also allows you to receive rates notices wherever you are and arrange payment more quickly so you never miss the early bird discount period! You’ll find a step-by-step guide to setting up your MyCouncil account and changing your preferred rates notice delivery method on council’s website. MyCouncil also allows you interact online with council, view your property information, rates, business and animal details and make requests and payments. If you already receive your rates notices by email, you’re automatically in the draw! Catch you in the valley soon, Rogo

COMMUNITY THANK YOU SUNLAND OWNERS CARAVAN GROUP
n the second week of August approximately 100 of the Sunland Owners Caravan Group were camped for a week at the Kenilworth Showgrounds.

MATE, THE NBN PROVIDER READY TO HELP
ith the unavoidable move over to the NBN on our horizons, the “Telco Twins,” Mark and David Fazio from NBN provider MATE, are confronted with the questions that people have surrounding this change on a daily basis. Identical twin brothers from Sydney, they started MATE three years ago, believing Australians deserve a local internet provider who doesn’t send customers overseas. With a call centre based in Sydney and a commitment to stay on the phone until issues are resolved, just like calling a mate who does understand what’s going on. “We all have to make the switch to the NBN and everyone at MATE has also gone through it personally, so we can certainly relate and give people honest and tailored advice,” says MATE General Manager Mark Fazio. Here, Mark and David answer burning questions we all have about the switch to NBN: Are my NBN speeds different to others’? Technically the NBN, owned by the NBN co, should be the same everywhere and the majority of Australians can get decent NBN speeds. The problem with speeds though can come down to how you are connecting. A $70 modem compared with a more expensive model could make a vast difference. Also, weigh up how many “users” you will have in the household, as the number of people using the net at the same time can slow things down. You may want to consider buying a higher speed plan which means you will receive a better experience with the devices you have connected on your home service. MATE plans are all unlimited data. How can I get connected? People may think it’s very easy to get connected and can happen at the flick of a switch, but people need to understand that most connections require a technician appointment who can only usually offer appointment slots within a 4-hour period, and you need to be home. All NBN technologies are connected differently – some via a phone socket, others by NBN equipment installation. It's really important to understand what type of NBN connection you have and what’s required if anything. MATE can certainly help you understand this as it’s a bit of a case by case situation. Whose responsibility is it? Generally everything external to your home (boundary point of the land) is NBN’s responsibility and everything internal is your responsibility. For example, it’s the responsibility of the consumer to make sure the phone socket is installed in your house as NBN can’t do this. Once again, it’s really important to understand the ins and outs of the type of NBN connection you have or get a service provider who does. Why not get your MATEs to help? Just give us a call on 13 14 13 so we can talk through everything.

2019 MUSTER PARTNER RFDS GET NAKED FOR THE MUSTER
ympie Music Muster is stripping away the stigma around rural mental health this August in support of 2019 charity partner, the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Qld (RFDS). Married at First Sight’s Gympie Farmer, Mick Gould pictured gets naked for Muster. With on site and online help from social media activists Ben Brooksby (The Naked Farmer), Mick Gould (Married at First Sight) and Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins, the iconic Aussie event is leading #getnaked4Muster and ‘Funky Shirt Friday’ initiatives to raise awareness and funds for delivery of RFDS state-based mental health programs. Muster Chairman, Greg Cavanagh said the choice of this year’s charity partner was driven by the need for greater mental health resourcing in rural communities. “Those living in rural areas are just as likely to face mental health challenges as city dwellers, but 1 in 5 times more likely to commit suicide due to lack of access to support services,” said Mr Cavanagh. “Every loss of life or suicide attempt has a ripple effect on family, friends, workplaces, schools and communities and the statistics in Queensland are far too high. This year’s charity partnership is harnessing the collective power of community to drive change; opening up a dialogue and making it easier for people to connect with what’s happening in each other’s lives.” Muster is hoping festival-goers will support the work of the RFDS by either getting naked, dressing up or meeting their neighbour in and around the Amamoor State Forest festival site this year. • Gympie lad, Mick Gould has polished up his boots and his birthday suit to lead the #getnaked4Muster photo competition – offering those with the guts to get naked the chance to become Mr / Ms August in the 2020 Naked Farmer Charity Calendar, along with a swag of other prizes. The not-so-brave can shirt up for ‘Funky Friday’ [Muster Friday, Aug 23], wearing their fave op-shop bargain or lairy number gifted by a relative with a sense of humour. The team from social enterprise TradeMutt will be on hand to provide funky work shirt tips, and start conversations from their base at the RFDS stall. Also the Nescafe crew will create on site café spaces to give people the chance to sit, chat and find out more about their neighbours. “The RFDS is thrilled to be chosen as the Gympie Muster’s charity beneficiary in 2019, a year that has seen the resilience of those across rural and remote Queensland truly tested with the devastating floods across north and north west and the prolonged effects of drought in other regions of our vast State impacting both livelihoods and individuals’ sense of wellbeing”, said RFDS Qld Section CEO, Meredith Staib. “While much is made of our life-saving aeromedical services, our

ability to provide counselling support and look after the emotional needs of these pastoral communities is of equal importance, so we thank Muster organiser’s for shining a light on this important issue”. • The Queensland RFDS team will be at the festival offering aircraft simulator tours and raffling off a custom-made and signed Keith Urban guitar and one-of-a-kind Muster t-shirt signed by 2019 festival artists. Raising in excess of $15 million for Australian charities since its inception 38 years ago, Gympie Music Muster is a not-for-profit event run by the community, for the community. Upholding Muster’s tradition of true, grassroots country music coupled with an exciting element of discovery, the 2019 program features more than 80 acts, from Nashville sensation Chase Rice and 'rockgrass' phenomenon Hayseed Dixie to festival favourites Kasey Chambers, The McClymonts and James Blundell to R’n’B legend Renee Geyer, Tex Perkins and more. • An unmissable and iconic event, one ticket gives festival goers free camping and multi-venue access to all performances to experience everything one of Australia’s favourite country music celebrations has to offer. • The Gympie Music Muster runs from Thursday 22 August to Sunday 25 August, 2019 in the stunning Amamoor Creek State Forest near Gympie.

BEST NIGHT OUT AT OBI OBI COMMUNITY DINNER
he well loved lights of Obi Obi Hall shone for the locals this July at the inaugural Seasonal Traditional Community Dinner. Generously presented by the hall committee, it was an opportunity for locals to enjoy the historic building, to mix and enjoy dinner with their neighbours and celebrate the bounty of winter. Surprise dishes on the menu included venison in wine and local roosters freshly killed and prepared for the oven − cooked with local lemons and olives preserved six months earlier. Karen Gollan − a regular participant at the Obi Surplus − loved the whole afternoon. "I loved sitting around the fire pit, the pea shelling, the popcorn and lemonade making beforehand. The food was amazing and it was such a friendly welcoming atmosphere." As hoped there was a mixture of old friends and new acquaintances and a hefty dose of small children running amok. The kitchen was full of faces wanting to help with the dishes and the generosity of peoples donations was greatly appreciated. The hall is maintained by a group of quirky and dedicated volunteers who want to encourage the use of the hall by the community. The president of the hall Rod Heading introduced committee members Dennis Woodford, Al Scott and Pam Engles, who are often to be seen working around the hall. Rod encouraged people to become members of the association and support the hall. For upcoming events email Melissa, email@example.com

MARTY HUNT MP | MEMBER FOR NICKLIN
eniors Week is being celebrated in Queensland this year from 17- 25 August. Seniors Week is a great opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution seniors make to our society, our economy and our families. “I will be celebrating with Nicklin Seniors at an event I am hosting to launch Seniors Week on Friday 16 August at 1.45pm. “I have fifty tickets to give away to an afternoon tea and screening of ‘Palm Beach’ at the Majestic Cinemas in Nambour and I would love Nicklin Seniors to come along.” Mr Hunt said. “If you are a senior or know of a senior who lives in the Nicklin Electorate and would like to join me in celebrating Seniors Week at this event, please register your interest by emailing my office at nicklin@ parliament.qld.gov.au or calling us on 5406 4100. Tickets will be allocated on a ‘first in’ basis – so hurry as it will be a great afternoon.” For more information about Seniors Events being held in Seniors Week go to - www.qldseniorsweek.org.au • I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Cooroy Sports Precinct and discussing the master planning with Noosa Council representatives. I visited Cooroy Tennis Club, Gymnastics Club and was able to inspect the other sporting grounds and facilities in the area. Last month I finalised a community and sporting organisations audit to establish the needs of the community and I thank those organisations who took the time to make submissions to me, so that I can plan how I fight for our fair share of priority funding for our community facilities. • I am proud to advise I have been appointed Patron of the Cooroy Gold Club and I thank the club for the invitation to support them. From my background in running the PCYC in Nambour I know how important it is for our young people right up to our seniors to take part in sporting and community activities. This not only makes us healthier personally but also contributes to a healthier and more socially connected community. I look forward to working with council, sporting and community groups locally to improve our facilities so they can cater for our future needs.

MARY VALLEY HEART OF GOLD PATRON AARON PEDERSEN
s Heart of Gold launches their twelfth year, the short film festival warmly welcomes accomplished Indigenous Australian actor and festival Patron, Aaron Pedersen pictured. Photo by Daniel Asher Smith. With an impressive body of work spanning more than 25 years including roles in Heartland, Water Rats, The Secret Life of Us, Mystery Road, Jack Irish and A Place To Call Home, Pedersen has been compared to one of Australia’s greatest male actors, Jack Thompson. “Storytelling is something that I've always been a part of. I always wanted to change the dynamics and the canvas of Australian film. I wanted young people to see their own soul. When you see your own soul it invigorates you, it really gives you power, it makes you feel stronger, it makes you believe in yourself and that's what I want to do. Inspire people to believe in themselves and share their stories.” said Aaron Pedersen. “I love the fact that Heart of Gold inspires filmmakers to shares stories that have heart and uplift the human spirit,” said Pedersen. Heart of Gold is the biggest short film festival in Queensland and new Artistic Director Lydia Fairhall is excited about putting her stamp on the upcoming festival, ‘Our twelfth festival will be a celebration of storytelling and community, a moment in the year to pause, reflect, inspire and connect.’ “This year we will be looking through the lens of mosaics; drawn to stories that show that from brokenness comes deep transformation. In 2019, The Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival is an affirmation of the fact that pain is real, but so is hope and restoration” said Fairhall. Over four days, the festival will screen more than 100 short films from all genres, alongside an exciting extras program of workshops, family activities, free events and filmmaker discussions to delight filmmakers, film lovers and local audiences. • This year’s program sees the introduction of In Conversation – where a panel of film makers, community members and experts gather to create dialogue and engage in critical conversation around an issue close to the heart on Friday evening. • Running alongside two new screening sessions of related films, In Conversation explores the topic “Renewed Agriculture: First Nations Futures”. Featuring eco-documentary makers, farmers and First Nations land management specialists, the documentaries will explore renewed agriculture and movements across the country that reinvigorate and heal the environment and each other, promoting the idea that caring for country, is caring for each other. • Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival runs from Thursday 3 Oct. to Sunday 6 Oct. at the Gympie Civic Centre.

CR BOB FREDMAN | DIVISION 8 GYMPIE COUNCIL
It’s all happening for families at Imbil. By this I mean we have just added two new outdoor opportunities to supplement everything else there that visitors and residents can do. The new rail trail is a fabulous walking or cycling track between Imbil and Brooloo. Most of it is through good forest. It’s smooth and mostly shaded, which means it’s great for people of all ages and abilities. In contrast the new Mary Valley Skatebowl is definitely not for people of all ages and abilities, but it’s set in a lovely location where, if you can’t do it, you can watch it. Get outdoors, get the blood flowing, and enjoy life! As always, if I can assist in any council matters, I can be reached by phone or SMS on 0418 708 745, and my email is bob.fredman@ gympie.qld.gov.au.

Low and middle income earners will benefit from tax relief of up to $1080 for singles or up to $2160 for dual income families. This will be received after taxpayers lodge their 2018-19 tax returns. • Olympic Games fever is building with the Tokyo Games now less than a year away and the prospect of a South East Queensland bid strengthening. I was honoured recently to be chosen by Prime Minister Scott Morrison as his representative for the 2032 Olympic Games bid. The PM has been on board right from the start committing up to $10 million to the bid process. There’s lots of work to be done, including an economic feasibility study to make sure the costings stack up along with a master plan which needs to include infrastructure needs, but I’m ready to dive right in.

TOM QUILTY GOLD CUP WINNER L
ocal endurance rider Kaylea Maher got to fulfil her dream of holding up the most coveted prize in the sport of endurance riding − the Tom Quilty Gold Cup − when she crossed the line on Saturday 13 July 2019 ahead of 298 other riders from across Australia and abroad in the iconic 160km endurance race. Ms Maher completed the 160km ride, which was hosted at the Stirling’s Crossing Equestrian Complex in Imbil Queensland, in ten hours and eight minutes after setting off on the ultimate endurance challenge at midnight on Friday night. The mother of two said while she was hopeful of taking out the win, there were so many factors that influenced the end result. Said Ms Maher “Every ride you just take as it comes, as you never know what the end result is going to be. You always have to have hope in your horse and believe in your horse, and that’s what we did. We believed in each other and we worked through all our challenges and he came home really strong. I’m really happy with his achievement. “Credit goes to the people at home in our stable, they do a fantastic job of looking after him and yes, it’s a lot of hours and a lot of time; a lot of tears and sweat that go into getting a horse to the condition they need to be in to perform on the day. “And that’s what we’ve seen, the hard work’s definitely paid off and I want to thank everyone who’s helped me get here. “It doesn’t matter if you’re at home or away, the competition is still there but to actually pull it off on home ground with the support from all my family, my friends and my team, I guess that’s where it feels good to have this win on home ground.” Ms Maher also gave credit to her horse, Matta Mia Dimari, a locally bred Arabian with a feisty spirit. “The first time I saw this horse I had a connection with him and I always believed from the first time I rode him, that he could take home the Gold Cup,” said Ms Maher. "I worked with him from day one on our farm and I had the goal set in my mind that I was going to work towards getting him ready for this 2019 Tom Quilty Gold Cup.” • Stirling’s Crossing Endurance Club hosted the ride and President Kim Moir said she was delighted that a local rider took home the Tom Quilty Gold Cup, especially a success story like Kaylea Maher − pictured centre, photo by Colin McLellan. “Kaylea has had an impressive endurance record having completed 122 official rides covering over 11,600km to this point, as well as taking home the lightweight title at the Tom Quilty Gold Cup three times in the seven years she has competed,” Ms Moir said. “She’s been riding since she was a young girl and now dedicates her time to training endurance horses, something she does incredibly well as seen in her performance in the Tom Quilty.”
“The ride was very successful with exceptional conditions given the cool, dry weather and condition of the tracks in the Imbil State Forest. There were riders aged from 12 to 77 and they all had from midnight on Friday until midnight last night to complete the ride.” “There is great prestige associated with completing the ride, hence the tagline: To complete is to win; and every rider out there was aiming to complete the 160km track within the 24-hour deadline to collect their Quilty buckle. The ride is really challenging and the welfare of the horse is paramount so if the rider or one of the 20 vets onsite feel it’s best for the horse to withdraw, that’s what happens. This year 194 buckles were presented to riders who completed the ride with the longest rider out on the course for 20 hours and 53 minutes.” “We also have the original Tom Quilty Gold Cup here from the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame which for many riders is a wonderful connection to when this ride began 54 years ago. "The idea was based on the premise of completing 100 miles (or 160km) in one day and when R.M. Williams approached his good friend Tom Quilty about the concept in 1966, Tom donated the $1,000 which paid for the original gold cup which is here at the complex at the moment.” • Second place went to Jamie Green from Brisbane and third place to Paul Bidei from France who both rode in the middleweight division. • There was much excitement for the Cole family from Panuara, NSW when mum Jolene took out the heavyweight division while her 13-year-old daughter Emma was the first junior. “Endurance is a family sport and the passion for horses and the sport is often passed down through the generations,” Ms Moir said. “We’re thrilled for Jolene and Emma on this great result and with the age limit for the Tom Quilty Gold Cup being 12 years of age, having a 13-year-old take out the title is quite an achievement.” • In the lightweight division Emma Dimech from Table Top, NSW was the top of the leader board while joint second went to Nikki Scott from Imbil and Floor Braunius from the Netherlands who rode a horse from Marburg, Queensland. Ms Braunius had the ride of her life to achieve what doctors said would be impossible when she shattered her knee in a riding accident two years ago. “I almost lost my leg three times during surgery and the doctors told me I could never ride a horse again. I made a promise to myself that not only would I ride again, but my goal was to ride in this year’s Tom Quilty. I rode Treasure TE from Toft Endurance stud who made it possible for me to achieve my dream,” said Ms Braunius. This is the first time that the Tom Quilty Gold Cup has been hosted at the Stirling’s Crossing Equestrian Complex and the iconic ride attracted around 2,000 riders, support crew and spectators to the town.
