$604,000 boost for tourism

$39.99 Jack Daniels 4 pack Pictured at the launch of a new $604,000 tourism campaign in Jindabyne last Friday are, from left, TSM board member Nick Elliott, Thredbo sales and marketing manager Richard Phillips, NPWS Andrew Harrigan, Member for Monaro Steve Whan, TSM executive officer Jo Larkin and TSM chairman Gary Grant. In a joint operation, the Snowy Mountains region is set to benefit from a new $604,000 marketing campaign supported by the NSW Government, Tourism Snowy Mountains, and four NSW Snow Resorts - Perisher, Thredbo, Selwyn and Charlotte Pass. Member for Monaro Steve Whan said the new campaign has received $302,000 in funding from the NSW Government’s Regional Partnerships Funding Program. “The campaign aims to persuade snow enthusiasts in NSW and Canberra to choose the Snowies for their ultimate skiing holiday rather than go overseas,” Steve Whan said. “The new TV, print, radio and online campaign builds on the NSW Government’s recently announced SnowNSW promotion, which is already delivering fantastic results. “The NSW snowfields of Perisher, Thredbo, Selwyn and Charlotte Pass are so accessible with most providing on-snow accommodation so that skiers can simply ski to the lifts as soon as they step outside. “And with the return of daily air services between Sydney and the Snowy Mountains means it’s even easier for Australians to get to the snow. “Aeropelican will commence the new route just in time for the winter season, with the trip from Sydney taking just under 60 minutes,” Mr Whan said. “The NSW resorts are leading the way in working more cooperatively to promote the Snowy Mountains as a key snow destination to visit this winter,” Executive Officer Tourism Snowy Mountains Jo Larkin, said. Representatives from Thredbo and Perisher were at the launch in Jindbyne last Friday. Perisher general manager and Tourism Snowy

Mountains chairman, Gary Grant, said the campaign was all about getting people to the region to experience what each resort has to offer. Thredbo’s sales and marketing manager, Richard Phillips, reinforced that sentiment. A similar campaign for the Snowies last year achieved phenomenal results with over 25,000 visits to the site, providing accommodation operators with a staggering 16,499 leads. NSW Tourism Minister Jodie Mackay said “This was a terrific result for the region’s ski resorts and every other tourism business that relies on visitors coming to the Snowy Mountains”. “The new campaign supports ongoing activity by the region’s Snow Resorts, positioning the Snowies as the ‘real deal’ snow destination and shifting the perception that overseas ski destinations offer cheaper package deals.” “More than a million visitors came to the Snowy Mountains in 2009 to enjoy reliable snow, the largest ski area and some longest runs in the Southern Hemisphere, injecting $658 million into the local economy and we want to boost those numbers even more. “Each resort will promote its own unique appeal with Selwyn offering family packages, Perisher with its huge size and diversity of terrain. Thredbo building on its unique village atmosphere and Charlottes Pass which is completely snowbound and the highest resort in Australia” Ms McKay said. The three month campaign will be in market until September 15. For more information on specific deals visit, www.,, au

Numeralla River in flood Heavy rain over the weekend caused road closures, power outages and localised flooding across the southeast. Cooma SES reported only two call outs to attend to leaking roofs, but other crews went to the South Coast to assist with more serious problems. In and around Cooma very welcome rain has replenished surface water supplies as well as giving recently sown pasture a good soaking. Cooma Visitors Centre reported 48.2mm from Saturday to Monday morning. While local creeks were flowing on the weekend, the Numeralla River was running a banker.

New direction for Yallambee Lodge A report into the operations of Yallambee Lodge aged hostel in Cooma has been received by Cooma-Monaro Shire Council and a new approach adopted. “To ensure a positive commitment to the individual needs of Residents and involve them in decision making in the provision of best care and services, council has directed that an independent review be undertaken into a variety of allegations and operational management requirements in meeting the challenges of the future”, Mayor Dean Lynch said. “The review was undertaken by Ms Janice McLeay, a work place relations management specialist and former Commissioner with the NSW Industrial Commission. The investigation was conducted between April 12 and May 24 and involved a variety of interviews” Cr Lynch said. “These interviews involved the Yallambee Management Committee members, staff, current and former residents including a variety of family members, carers and friends of residents, volunteers, medical practitioners and some general members of the community.” A Confidential Report on the outcomes was submitted to council’s general manager, John Vucic on Monday May 24 and involved a variety of management and staffing recommendations in providing high standard of care and service to the residents of the Hostel. Cr Lynch said he welcomed the report and in

particular, the overwhelming support received from all stakeholders at Yallambee and from the medical-health fraternity and the community through their submissions. The report has been submitted by the investigator under confidential privacy imprimatur as it relates to staffing matters. “As a result of specific allegations raised by some members of the community, the Independent Commission against Corruption, (ICAC) has requested a copy of the Confidential Report for their consideration which has been submitted.” Cr Lynch said , “I am pleased to hear the Department of Health has undertaken two recent accreditation certification audit processes and is satisfied that Yallambee Lodge is currently meeting its requirements in the provision of high standard of care and service to the residents of the hostel under the interim proposed management arrangements”. Due to the recent resignation of the hostel manager, council will be advertising the position and in line with some of the report recommendations, proposing a new management structure and service delivery. “Council’s philosophy for the lodge is to provide a high standard of care and service. The lodge will have clear policies and procedures which encourages residents independence and allows for individual choices and preferences,” Cr Lynch said.

Glittering night of stars From P1.... Mrs Litchfield was also authorised to announce that Cooma Hospital has been approved to begin breast cancer biopsy services. More details of this service will be made available later. What began as a “little idea” from MCCR vice president Sandy Schofield and Caroline Ewart for an alternative fund raiser, grew exponentially until 800 people enjoyed a theatre restaurant style of entertainment and another 280 enjoyed a matinee performance on Saturday afternoon. Mrs Litchfield said the event had touched the whole region and beyond, with donations coming from near and far.

NAG president meets candidate I recently met with the new candidate for the federal seat of Eden-Monaro, David Gazard, to give him a brief of the issues and challenges faced by our community - past, present and future. He just happened to be returning home to Burra from a long, rainy day in Eden, when I called on his mobile. Miraculously, only two minutes before, he had just passed our door and on his return, David expressed a keen desire to build knowledge of our community and its concerns, particularly Nimmitabel’s water security. Gazelle and I have invited David to our next NAG meeting to help fill in the background to where he can best target his assistance, if elected, later in the year. If you wish to meet the new candidate, come along to the NAG general meeting on June 17 and join in. David Wicks, President Nimmitabel Advancement Group.

Riposte Lisa Ashurst People can be mean sometimes can’t they!? Like whoever it was that showed a little too much interest in my fellow Bredbo resident’s young cat, and possibly helped him to leave home, which has left my friend and her little girls devastated at his loss. It all started when my friend acquired two little kittens some months back, one almost all black with a little white inverted “V” on her face and another that you would have sworn was a purebred Siamese. Well, while he may have looked like an expensive purebred he was not, being full brother to the little black one and born of a tortoiseshell mother and a ginger-striped father! Yes, that’s right. A Heinz! Someone thought he was the real deal though and before you knew it, he disappeared one afternoon a few weeks back from his own front yard while my friend was collecting her little daughters from our local school. The thing is, he was very settled and happy where he was, never went out of the yard and would never, ever have gone anywhere without his sister anyway, as they were inseparable but,

Wednesday June 2, 2010

nevertheless, my friend returned a short time later to find him gone...and he never came back. His little black sister called for him for days and days and is still missing her litter-mate. The story that had him wandering off to someone’s place (where he allegedly stayed for dinner and then left again) doesn’t fly because he would not have headed out alone across the highway and my friend is furious at the thought that someone would be so low as to steal him as soon as she was out of sight. Rumour is also strong that he may have been relocated to a new home in Cooma so just for the record...he is short-haired, around six months old, predominantly white (but may have developed some champagne shading like his brother) and has a dark chocolate face, ears, legs and tail. He has bright blue eyes and four white feet but rather distinctively, he has a couple of black toes on his left (I think) front foot. Have you seen a puss recently that fits this description? If so, then chances are you may have found our boy and trust me, he doesn’t belong there because he already has a home in Bredbo and his family would like to have him back again ASAP. Thank you.

Outstanding, brilliant, unbelievable – the superlatives just kept flowing over the weekend as the Dancing wiht Cooma Stars phenomenon unfolded. To all involved – take a really big bow. That was so much organisation and hard work and it was certainly worth it.

The Postman was impressed – he was also in stitches, laughing at the antics of the ‘stars’. The Baby Elephant Walk theme will never be the same, Fatty! As for some of the moves - good thing there was a doctor (or two) in the house and a couple of nurses.

Meanwhile, the Green Room, “Sonia” was doing an excellent job of interviewing the performers, with some incisive questions. But the really big thing to come out of the weekend was the size of the heart of the Monaro – after umpteen years of drought, a rural recession and the GFC, this

area could still find enough spare change to tally up to more than $120,000 – amazing! Well done everyone. Aeropelican formally introduced itself to local residents last Saturday. What a nice gesture, offering joy rides to local schoolchildren who might not otherwise ever experience a plane

flight. Thanks, Aeropelican. And what do a gorilla, Gumby, a geisha, a glostick man, gnome, Gonzo, a golfer, a Gollywog, the Libra man and a teabag have in common? A 21st celebration – that’s what. Happy birthday Libby the Lamb – now get back to work! xxxxooxx

On Wednesday evening May 19, the annual Cooma Rotary Pride of Work Awards were made as Certificates of Excellence given to five Cooma people who were considered by Cooma Rotary and their employers to be outstanding in their respective vocations. The Pride of Work Awards are a feature of Rotary in general, not only to give recognition to specific people in the community who are identified each time but to use the opportunity to make public acknowledgement of all, both discovered and undiscovered people, who treat their allotted tasks as being important, and warranting their best efforts. Rotary believes that its program gives an opportunity to thank specific people for their contribution for making Australia better by their

example. The people who were selected for awards this year in Cooma each received citations from their employers which left no doubt that they are outstanding people who have consistently encouraged those around them as they gone about their jobs in such an impressive way over the years. The awards this year were made to:Liz McMahon – Snowy BEC Des Marshall - Monbeef Jenni Venables – Country Energy Susan Pimm - Country Energy Violet Wheeler – Cooma Health Service

Monaro Property Muster - Wednesday, June 2, 2010

HIA Industry Outlook Highlights Urgent Need for Housing Reform The Housing Industry Association (HIA), the voice of Australia’s residential building industry, this morning hosted a National Industry Outlook Breakfast on the Gold Coast, supported by Colorbond. Guest speakers Bill Evans, Chief Economist, Westpac and Harley Dale, Chief Economist, HIA outlined Australia’s economic and housing prospects through the remainder of 2010 and beyond. Against the backdrop painted of Australia’s current economic out-performance relative to other advanced economies, the audience of over 300 HIA members and guests was provided with insights into the challenges that lay ahead for the nation’s economy and for the housing industry within. HIA Chief Economist, Harley Dale, said that reducing the supply side obstacles that stood in the way of boosting Australia’s new housing stock represented one of the primary challenges facing policymakers in 2010 and in the years ahead.

“Issues related to land supply, planning systems, infrastructure taxes and charges, credit restrictions, and skilled labour shortages are all artificially restraining the ability of a highly efficient new home building sector from meeting the housing requirements of Australia’s growing population. “The recognition and importance afforded these issues more recently is very encouraging, but urgent action is required. “This urgency is no better demonstrated than by current indications that the increase in new home starts in 2010, which will be the first rise since 2002, may not prove sustainable through 2011 and beyond. “Australia currently has a housing shortage in excess of 110,000 dwellings. That figure is in danger of exceeding 450,000 dwellings by 2020 unless urgent action is undertaken to reduce the considerable supply side obstacles preventing Australia from building the number of homes required,” said Harley Dale.

Credit Crunch Harming Housing Recovery A lack of finance continues to have a major constraining influence on the new home building recovery says the Housing Industry Association, the voice of Australia’s residential building industry. HIA Chief Economist, Dr Harley Dale, said that new residential work approved but yet to be started remained at elevated levels and in the March 2010 quarter was over 10 per cent higher than at the time last year. “A lack of available finance for viable residential projects is a major obstacle to boosting Australia’s housing supply. “Australia has a substantial pent-up demand for new housing, a dwelling shortage

in excess of 110,000, and yet the money simply isn’t being made available. “The current situation where finance is extended to households in the form of mortgages on the one hand, but finance is not extended to allow the development of residential supply on the other, is simply untenable. “In Queensland, where the credit crunch is at its worst and, not coincidentally, housing market conditions are at their weakest, the value of work approved but not yet started is up by nearly 60 per cent,” Harley Dale said. The HIA awaits with interest the findings of the Senate Economics Committee Inquiry into the Access of Small Business to Finance. źӅҍӅOH4ҿSȲʚ $ΕΝNǣ /ȪӮ  H -̨ҭ̢O

SnowyKids Playgroup market Wild, rainy, autumn weather could not keep the crowds away from the Snowykids Playgroup Autumn Market that was held last Saturday, May 29 at the CWA Hall, Jindabyne. “We had such a great turn out of buyers despite the dismal weather conditions on Saturday,” said Snowy Kids Playgroup Coordinator Letitia Tarr. “We managed to raise over $200 for Snowy Kids Playgroup which is a great result as we can get new toys, equipment and craft supplies for the winter months ahead” Ms Tarr said a very special thankyou must go to Jindabyne CWA members who donated the use of the hall and made another generous donation towards their fundraising efforts.

“Jindabyne CWA members have again supported us and we are very grateful to them. We would also like to thank the Jindabyne Community who came out to support us in such wet weather,” said Ms Tarr. Snowy Kids Playgroup plans to have another market day in November however before then they also hope to host a disco for 0-5 years during the winter months. Snowy Kids Playgroup meets each Monday, of the school term, from 10am- 12pm as well as each second Friday of the month for a one hour music session, at 10am, at the CWA Hall, Jindabyne. For more information contact Letitia Tarr on ph: 0427572006.

Public meeting on Berridale tip A public meeting wil be held at 7pm next Wednesday, June 9 to discuss the possible closure of Berridale tip. Organisrs of the meeting, Snowy Waste taskforce, say the closure of Berridale Waste Transfer Station and Dalgety Tip is likely to occur from July 1. These proposals are included in Snowy River Shire’s new Management Plan which will be in force from 2010 till 2014, four long years. Snowy River Shire Council recently conducted a survey of rural ratepayers in the Shire to determine how much they were willing to pay in order to keep local tips/transfer stations open. The taskforce claims this survey did not include ratepayers of Berridale who have kerbside collection. In a meeting the Snowy Waste Taskforce had with Council Waste Committee this very significant oversight was pointed out, along with the fact that the survey also had a number of costing errors, let alone the option of a possible rural collection pickup was not even costed, but which rural ratepayers were expected to consider. A petition with 344 signatures was tabled as an indication to Council as to how many did not agree with the closures being an acceptable action by Council, with the need to further investigate options which are fair and equitable to all ratepayers no matter of their location in the shire. In addition, a list of 26 questions were put to the Waste Committee covering - the constant and costly use of consultants with little or no outcomes – management costs being over 50 percent of the operating costs

i.e. inside services/staff /computers costs as against what it costs to have a hole in the ground which people put waste in and the staffing and direct costs associated with it. The omission of Berridale implies that the people of Berridale township do not use the Berridale waste transfer station and have no interest in keeping it open, and it was assumed by Council that they would be prepared to go either up to Jindabyne or Dalgety to dispose of non domestic items ie garden green waste, building materials, old mattresses etc. The Snowy Waste Taskforce maintains the closures of these facilities along with that of the Eucumbene Transfer Station is a failure by Council to deliver proper services to its ratepayers. The omission to the waste survey of the Berridale township ratepayers means the survey failed to consider all interested users. Chair of the taskforce, Vickii Wallace, said If residents of Berridale/Dalgety want to keep their Waste facilities open and not drive to Jindaybyne they must immediately write to their Councillors as well as Council as the new Management Plan, its charges and changes (with these tips sites closed), will be in force for the next four years and will be rubber stamped by Councillors upon its closing date of June 23. Submissions as a vote against these changes need to be in by 4.30pm June 23. The taskforce does not believe all of the issues, options or justification has been investigated by Council and this loss of service may be just the tip of the iceberg for other services down the track.

Cooma Tigers football results day after her 21st birthday. Letitia Newman passed her the Lady Tigers third win Lady Tigers have had their third win of their season with a ball, and Libby turned and shot with all the fluid grace we have stunning victory on Sunday against their opponent Woden come to expect from the lethal striker. Cooma dominated the game in the second half with strong Valley United. The victory came with three second half goals in non-stop defense supporting the midfield. Grace Daley, Rebecca Pascall, Emma Gerrand and Georgia Peters, who substituted with raining conditions. Rebecca Thompson was a goalkeeper for the Tigers side Courtney later, all had great games. Deanne Baines and Beth and she had a good game in the cold and rainy environment; McMahon were stunning on the left and right wings. The ‘Tiger’ of game went to Grace Daley. Awesome defence difficult conditions for goalkeepers. Cooma came close to a goal in the first half; good wing play in the right back once again and great goal in the second half was unlucky not to be finished off. Despite a goalless first half got her the praise. Also special thanks to Gerald Rampal who drove the Lady the team played well. Dedicated, the Lady Tigers continued their pressure in the Tiger bus to Canberra and was the linesman during the game. second half. The first goal came from a cross by Tina Cafarelli; Another appreciation goes to Mark Gerrand, a loyal Lady Tigers Alicia Connell’s beautiful kick with her left foot in the box ended supporter. He travelled all the way from Jounama Power Station, up in the net. It was defender Grace Daley’s turn to score next; she got where he works in the commissioning of Snowy Hydro’s new the ball in the midfield and passed four Woden players.

He was in his Sydney was a cool finish where she chipped the ball over the Woden Swan hat and jumper as always, and cheered for the Lady Tigers and his daughter Emma for 80 minutes. goalkeeper, making it 2-0 for Cooma.

At the 25th minute Cam Mackintosh broke through the right wing of the Gungahlin defence and shot the ball into the Gungahlin net for a 2-0 lead. This galvenised Gungahlin to an extra effort, and a lapse of concentration on our part resulted in Gungahlin getting one back in the 37th minute. They followed this with the equalizer only minutes from half time and the first half ended with a 2-2 draw. In the second half

and in the 62nd minute Jake Schoon charged up the left wing and sent a rocket passed the Gungahlin keeper to give Cooma a 3-2 lead. This must have been the boost our boys needed. From this point on there was no stopping them; they kept the pressure on and their fitness turned the game to our advantage. As a result, in the 71st minute Heath Millington found the net yet again, this time from the right wing, giving Cooma a two goal lead and the match ended Cooma 4 Gungahlin 2.

Fourth division v Belconnen It was on a very wet Nijong oval that the tigers sought out their first win for the season. The first half saw the Tigers on the back foot as Belconnen Utd displayed their forwards’ unsuspected speed. A quick passage of play from the out-of-towners, and a brain-snap from the otherwise solid defence, saw the opposition place a shot perfectly past the keeper and into the far post. The Tigers were quick to react, and Mauritian powerhouse Gerard Rampal took a through ball from the better part of half way and burned past the visiting defenders. One touch too many gave the opposing keeper the advantage, and his well placed shot was barely kept out in a mad scramble. The second blow to the Tigers came

Beavers win one, draw one Cooma Beavers headed to Canberra in the rain for two games of football. The first was a long awaited game against ADFA, no nets and no Ref, it was a good job we take travelling Ref Richard Haywood who stepped up, thankyou Richie. Apart from the shaky start and the wet weather our hard working midfield and backs held formation under pressure and turned defence into attack with well directed through passes to give our forwards scoring chances.

Five goals found the back of the net, with the final score 5-2 to the Beavers. Kate Xenochristos –2, Hayley Caldwell –1, Lynsey Nichols – 1 and Karlee Patemen – 1. However our second match against a well coached Weston Creek team was a little harder, with the rain teeming down and legs beginning to tire we faced an uphill battle against a consistent breeze in the first half. Several times with the hard work done and the goal keeper beaten we missed great chances to score, not

to be discouraged we defended our goal and tied their attack up in the midfield, final score 0-0 was a good result all round. Special thanks goes to Tania Quodling parents Gary and Elaine for driving the bus, Richard Haywood for Referreeing our second game, to our Coach Harry and Manager Bruce and to Kieran for taking the job of linesperson. The Beavers will take the field at home this Sunday at 2pm, hope to see you all there.

when the Belconnen striker capitalised on a failed clearance to put away another far post goal. Half time provided the drenched and battered tigers the chance to regroup and reconsider strategy. The Tigers came out with all cylinders firing and pushed hard for the remainder of the half. The aggression and hunger for each ball resulted in a penalty opportunity for the Tigers. Young gun Riley Mitchell stepped up, but put the ball high in an attempt for the top corner. The Tigers, still dominating the half, had Belconnen flummoxed. A miracle spot kick from 40 yards out saw man of the match Dave D’Amico bounce the opposing keeper for the Tigers only goal of the day.

Junior Red Devils show their dominance Under 10’s

Above: rep players Connor Duncombe, Liam Allen and Luke Rixon. Below: Under 12s in action against Marist.

On a very wet Saturday morning the Highcountry Hyundai Under 10 Devils made their way to North Curtain to play Marist. This week the boys had their game down pat and played like they had been playing together for years. In tough slippery conditions they managed to hang on tight to that pigskin ball and place it over the line numerous times, coming home with a big win, 51-0 Defence was fantastic this week with Archie Allen and Peter Tangye being the standouts. The entire team attacked like they have never attacked before and everyone kept running the ball forwards the whole game. Matt Swain, Joe Rossiter and DJ being the primary pack moving forward. Kevin made a run down the middle and had a great game. Tries were scored by Bailey Rogers, Pierre Wall, Sam Larritt and Joe Rossiter. Points this week went to 3- DJ, 2- Peter Tangye, 1- Bailey Rogers. Could we please ask that some of the under 10’s parents come along on the bus, as it’s not a baby sitting service and some children need more supervision and help than others. It doesn’t have to be every week, just a few times to give the regulars a bit of a break. Next week we play Burgmann at home.

Under 12’s lost 29-12 The Mainstreet Under 12 Devils also made their way North in the wet to play Marist on Saturday, but were lucky enough to only play for a short time in the actual rain, as the rain held off for most of their game. The day didn’t start off the best with the coach forgetting to pick up one of the players and also forgetting the drink bottles but it did improve with the forgotten player making the game. Coach Chris Allen said “the boys nailed the game this week and were very unlucky to not come away with a win. Basically we dropped the ball five times and that’s when they scored.” The boys turned it on in the bad conditions and played structured rugby far better than Marist. Aaron scored his first try for the season in the

second half with a rampaging effort near the posts. There’s been a few position changes and these are working well with Blake playing half back against the ACT half back and giving him a hard time of it. Luke also moving to fullback seems to be working with him having the whole field to play with. Henry playing inside centre is learning more and playing very well. This week Dan stood up and went to front row and did a great job. Isaac is playing like he has never played before and is taking catches off the kick off and running and passing the ball well. Liam is constantly moving forward and helping the team to dominate the rucks and mauls. The ACT Rugby Union have once again praised the under 12’s for having a go in the black division this year, as teams from last year that were of equal standard refused to go up and stayed in Gold division. The Cooma club is gaining a lot of respect from the ACT clubs for not giving up and watching our players go from strength to strength and improve with every game. It’s going to be a hard season for this team but they have the determination and guts to go a long way. Next week we play Broulee at home.

The ACT Brumbies under 12-rep team With two boys from Cooma and one boy from Jindabyne in the squad, the team travelled to Nowra to play in a series of trial games against other rep teams. First game was played against Illawarra and the Brumbies showed just how a rep team should play, with skill, determination and speed the Illawarra team were no match for the Brumbies. They came out winners 29-5. The second game was against the much more fancied Eastwood side. This was a much tighter game and Eastwood was first to score. This only fired the boys up and they then took control and won the game 10-5. There were several injuries in the Eastwood game, so this week they are only training and hope they have all recovered for the long weekend and the State Championships in Camden.

District women’s bowls Molly Siddle and Leonie Snell played a close game in the district women’s singles at Cooma Bowling Club last week.

The last of the district events was held on Tuesday at Cooma with the playing of the singles. It was between Molly Siddle Coolamatong ,and Leonie Snell, Cooma. It was a very good game and very close, right until the last bowl. Molly led early but then Leonie caught up and they were equal at twenty all, when Leonie went ahead. However, Molly caught up again and eventually won. Congratulations Molly and good luck in the play-off in June. It was the last game by a Coolamatong club member as such, as very sadly, the bowls club has had to close. It does not mean that they will not

be playing again as the members plan to join other district clubs . Lyn McMahon was the marker for the game and is to be commended for the way she adhered to the rules for markers, it was great to see. The Adaminaby club has had its first game of pennants when they went to Bateman’s Bay last week. They did very well and came second which was really great, congratulations to the team. The Adaminaby team of G. Daal,C.McMahon, A. Madden and L.McMahon will be in the fours playoff at Tura Beach next Monday and Tuesday for the right to go to Tuncurry in September, good luck


Bowls program disrupted by wet weather The wild wet weather over the weekend battered local bowlers with the planned heavy schedule severely restricted. Play was possible on Saturday afternoon despite some morning rain but Sunday’s play was completely washed out. A number of players showed their adaptability by enjoying some indoor carpet bowls on Sunday afternoon! Three games in the minor singles were completed on Saturday afternoon with the players able to produce some excellent bowls despite the heavy conditions. Mario Frezza and Keith Goodwin had a real battle. Both players peppered the jack in a very tight game. Frezza started well but by the 10th end Goodwin had managed to level the score at 10 all. By the 17th end Goodwin had set up a 17 – 13 advantage. Frezza closed the gap and the ends were being shared. After 28 ends the scores were locked at 23 all. At this point Frezza was able to string together a number of consecutive ends to take control of the match. He won six of the next seven ends to take the game 31 – 24. Geoff Venables and Jim Fletcher also defied the conditions to play some excellent bowls. Fletcher started well but Venables struck back to grab a slender 11 – 10 lead after 12 ends. Fletcher reasserted his dominance to move to 18 – 14 after 18 ends. As always Fletcher played an aggressive game but this backed fired over the next five ends. In this period Venables picked up 11 shots, including three lots of three shots, to move to a 25 – 14 lead. While

Fletcher steadied, the momentum of the game had changed. Venables had found his mark and was able to dominate the head with excellent draw bowls. Venables was able to take the game 31 – 22. In the third game Peter Marsicano showed that he has lost none of the form that taken him to the final of the major singles. His game with Tony Gray was highlighted by two periods of seven ends that Marsicano completly dominated. Gray lead 6- 4 after 4 ends only to see Marsicano win the next seven ends to race to a 17 – 6 lead. Gray fought back to give himself some hope at 24 – 15 at the 23rd end. Marsicano then won another seven ends on the trot to take out the game 31 – 15. The matches washed out on Sunday have been rescheduled for next weekend. All players are reminded that it is their responsibility to inform the bowls organizer if they are unavailable to play on a certain day. If possible they will be accommodated but if this can not be done they will either have to find a substitute of forfeit. All of the singles games have been scheduled for Saturday but players can move these to Sunday if mutually agreeable. Matches set down are: J Thompson v C Roberson (Marker J Fletcher); G Davidson v S Roncelli (T Gray); P Harris v M Meillon (M Buckley); R Wallis v N McGregor (G D’Amico); J Sajina v I Mondello (R Downey); G Venables v S Lapham (D Jarvis) and P Marsicano v C Seears (O Russell). One minor pairs games is set down for Sunday with C Seears and G Venables to Play M Povey and R Lahy. There will be social bowls on both days.

Red Devils versus Hall Cooma Red Devils hosted tricky outfit Hall at home at Rotary Oval last Saturday in what finally felt like rugby weather. While Cooma’s young reserves side held oyt a determined Hall to record a tie, First grade wasn’t so lucky, going down 24-10. Cooma started strongly and had most of the play for the first 20 minutes. Strong runs by the backs had Cooma looking likely, with both teams playing for field positon in the slippery conditions. Hall hit the lead with two tries down Cooma’s left edge to lead 12-0. Cooma hit back with agood try to centre Ryan Margan, who converted to take teh score to 12 -7. Hall then scored a simple try from a top to lead 19-7. Cooma finished the half with a penalty, taking the score at the break to 19-10 to Hall. Cooma’s defence inproved after the break and good break from Zeb Learoyd had teh Devils on attack. Unfortunately the ball went astray, giving Hall a chance out wide to score which they did, taking the final score to 24-10 to Hall. Points – 3 Josh Lord, 3 Ed Ingram, 1 Leighton Bates. Players’ player – Leighton Bates. The seniors Nicholls Oval Saturday.

play Gungahlin at in Canberra next

Reserves Cooma rugby reserve grade received their first competition points on Saturday with a seven all draw with Hall. They were a bit unlucky not to win. The Cooma line out was again dominant, never losing on their throw, and pinching most of Hall’s. Curtis Watkins went high at four and Harry Mitchell was very disruptive at two. Jim Codyre, who is having a gap year with the Langs, started his first game at half back for the club. He has a great pass and will get better as he gets more time in the position. Brett Jones, who didn’t make it last week because he was a bit crook, made some great runs down the wing. Nothing like a big, fiery, red head at full pace. Big hits. Zeb Learoyd had another fine game. Scoring our only try after an awesome run in broken play. The team is getting Rolfie’s game plan sorted. Everyone now knows what is happening at the break down. So there is a bit of structure up front.

Colts battle wet, wintry conditions Under 8s Cooma Colts Under 8’s braved the elements when they travelled to Kaleen on Sunday. Despite the strong defence of Eddy Clarke, Josh Lyons, Marshall Bowman, James Dyball and evasive running from Ethan Connelly, Aiden Childs, Jack Williams-Hartas, Braith Fitzgerald (c) the Bears had crossed three times prior to 1/2 time. The second 1/2 was extremely exciting with side stepping runs from Will Cahill, Tyler Rees and Jarrod O’Brien unfortunately the Colts could not seem to hold on to the slippery Bears allowing them through to score 28 points with Tyler Rees crossing for the Colts only try, making the score 28 to 4. Thanks to all the parents who also braved the torrential rain to show their support. Best and fairest this week was James Dyball.

Too many Colts to take on.

their credit made minimal mistakes. Midway through the half the ball was spun out wide and the flying Will Shingles scored out wide. With the conversion waved away, the Colts now led 10 points to nil. The boys once again tackled to a standstill to keep the Dragons scoreless. A fantastic effort from all the boys. The Percy’s Newsagency award went to Jesse McMahon the Mc Donald’s award went to Hugh Allan and Daniel Swain and the medal went to Damo Hayden. Special thanks to Will shingles for filling in from the under 11s. Under14s had a bye Under 15s Wet and slippery condition saw the Colts under 15’s lose convincingly to the Woden Weston Rams.

Under 9s Despite the much-needed rain under 9s Cooma Colts travelled to Queanbeyan to play the Roo’s. With only 10 players the team played very well, we saw some great runs once again from Sean Dixon, Darnel Bartlett, Nicholas Zusak. We saw some good hard tackles from Will Pendergast, Remy Oldrey, Damon Fanning. Over all, all the boys did well, which showed with under 9s coming away with there 5th win in a row. The final score was 42-16. Points scored by James Hayden, Nicholas Zusak, Darnel Bartlett, Remy Oldrey x2, and Sam Sergo x4 with conversion by Sam Sergo, Will Pendergast, and Remy Oldrey. This weeks McDonalds award went to Andrew Pearce with the medal going to Mathew Hopkin. Under10s The Cooma Colt’s under 10’s braved the rain and played Bungendore in Bungendore on Sunday winning the game 28 points to 6. The Bungendore boys were first to score and convert, but for the majority of the game the boys had control of the ball not letting Bungendore in. Luke Day scored 2 tries with power in all his runs, James Hill had great force and concentration as he ran away to score a try, taking the score 12 points to 6. Thomas Hain, Josh Dwyer/Gersak and Cameron Faulkner all did well in keeping the opposition in their half. Dylan Van Gemert had a great game, making some very lengthy runs. Lachlan Inskip then scored with Chris McDonald converting his first goal with great height and length. Lachlan Inskip scored and then converted his own try with the final score 28 points to 6. McDonalds awards went to Connor Inskip for great chasing and Jack Reid for his consistency. The player of the week went to Bill Zammit as he finally discovered what line to run towards and ran with great force. Thanks to Bernie McDonald and Darryl Reid (league safe) and Amber Zammit (FAO). Under 11s had a bye Under 12s The Colts under 12s played the Valley Dragons on a very wet and cold day at Gowrie on Sunday. The Colts were the first to score when Daniel Swain (making his debut) scored a great try with Damo Hayden adding the extras. The rest of the first half, the Colts defended their heart out with a string of penalties to the Dragons the boys kept the half time score 6 points to nil. The second half was a slog fest. The Colts tried spinning the ball out wide and to

Remy Oldrey wrapped up by Queanbeyan Roos.

The first half saw a 25 percent completion rate, due to dropped balls and silly mistakes. Despite big runs and good attacking games from Blayne Thomas, Harry Roach, Jacob Moon, Dean Byrne, Michael Watsford and Joel Smith, the Colts couldn’t seem to score in the first half with the scoreline reading 8 points to nil. The second half saw the Colts come back a bit more pumped and Harry Roach scored an early much needed well deserved try. The game was full of mistakes by both teams due to the slippery conditions. Putting in a big effort in defence were Blake Byrne, Aaron ‘smiley ‘ Hedger, Eric Conley and Blake Jones. The ball didn’t get enough opportunities to be sent out wide enabling a closer scoring margin. Glen Payne, Kalhem Jones, Ned McDonnell and Zane Weston never took a backward step against some of the much bigger rams players. Player of the week went to Glen Payne who had a great game, and a big thank you to Ned McDonnell who stepped up from the under 14’s. Under 16s had a bye

Locals Chris Johnson, Kathy Manthey and Philip Jamieson have returned home after completing “Long Ride 2010”, which raised over $200,000 towards research and raising awareness of Prostate cancer. Long Ride 2010 attracted over 400 riders from all over the country; which is a huge increase from the 40 riders that participated in Long Ride 2008 to Perth. The Cooma riders left home on Friday April and joined the ride in Nyngan and t30 ravelled to Darwin via Charleville, Longreach, Mt Isa and Katherine, arriving on Saturday May 8, culminating in a dinner at the Darwin Trailer Boat Club. When the trio had arrived home, they had travelled just under 10,000 kilometres, having taken the opportunity to do some sight seeing on the return journey. The event is scheduled to go again in 18 months time, destination yet to be decided. Phil is a definite starter for next ride; while Chris will consider whether his aching back side can go the distance; Kath will take some time to think about it. Donations were raised through rider registration and various fundraising events held along the way. The ride was well publicised in the northern states and attracted a lot of attention and the T Shirts worn by the riders

were good prompts and conversation starters. Our local riders contributed with donations from Cooma Lions Club; Cooma Historic Auto Club; Shell Service Station; Cooma Alpine Tourer’s and a number of generous locals.

At the end of the match many players were nursing bumps and bruises however there was not a sad face in sight with everyone involved adjourning to the Lake Jindabyne Hotel for a post match discussion on the pros and cons of the game and state of the nation. Fortunately the score had already been predetermined before the match commenced with each side agreeing a 9 all scoreline would be the official score regardless of the outcome. Considering both teams failed to accumulate any points at all this total may in the future be considered an optimistic sum for both teams.

Cats flounder in wet conditions Wet conditions, costly turnovers and the absence of a number of key players combined to see the Cooma Cats flounder against competition pace-setters the Belconnen Magpies in Canberra on Sunday. The Cats went down 4-5-29 to the Magpies 1320-98. In a day which saw much of Canberra’s Sunday football cancelled due to the torrential rain over the weekend, the Cats fought hard against a superior Belconnen side in a tough, yet entertaining game despite the rain-soaked field. Cooma Cats Club President Dave Paterson said it was always going to be a tough ask for the Cats to take the points against Belconnen at their home ground. “The Magpies are a very good side and they proved that today in the way they adapted to the conditions. They didn’t give us an inch all day,” Dave said. “The Magpies totally dominated the centre clearances, consistently getting the ball into the forward line and putting our backs in Jimmy Russell, Stu Wood and Rob Stapleton under never-ending pressure. “We had to fight hard to then get the ball back through the centre from our defence, and then into attack. That’s a hard way to play footy,” he said. The Cats let the Magpies get the jump on them in the opening few minutes of the game, allowing the ‘Pies to kick two quick goals. But to their credit, the Cats regrouped and Peter Stockton took full advantage of a free kick and a 50 metre penalty to steal a goal against the run of play and give Cooma some hope. However, the Cats’ major weakness – giving easy turnovers from poor disposal – took hold again as they gifted easy ball to the Magpies. And then as the rain started to really come down, the Cats lost rapidly improving first year player Mark Fitzgerald with a shoulder injury which could keep him out for a significant period. “Mark has been a star first year player who had really strengthened out backline with his strength and grit, and his loss today is a real blow,” Dave said. As things were looking grim, full-forward Tony Fleming snatched a goal right on the quarter-time siren to keep the Cats in touch. Cats’ coach Damien Asanovski made some significant positional moves in the second quarter, moving Fleming on to the ball and ruckman Shaun

Allen to centre-half-forward. This proved a good move with Fleming playing one his best quarters of football this season and having a real impact using his height and weight around the field to good effect. Also stepping up in the second quarter was Dave Maxwell across the centre. Dave Maxwell played his best game of the year, winning countless hard-ball free kicks from the packs in a great display of determination and consistent effort. His ‘second efforts’ paid off when the Cats capitalized on yet another of his hard won free kicks to score mid-way through the second quarter and keep Cooma in the game. But the Magpies proved too strong and managed to keep the ball in their attacking zone. Only their inaccurate kicking was letting the Cats stay in touch. The second half proved to be a great exhibition of determined football by both sides as the rain fell harder and the ground became increasingly waterlogged. With players slipping and sliding all over the field, both sides worked hard to move the ball around and find opportunities. It wasn’t pretty, but it was real gutsy football to watch. Again, the Magpies dominated the centre clearances and the Cats continued to give easy turnovers. In the final quarter, the Magpies quickly opened the scoring with an easy goal in the first few minutes. But Mal Green, loitering in the forward pocket, managed to sneak a goal in response for the Cats to let the Magpies know they weren’t going away. Both sides toughed it out through the final quarter and the Cats can hold their heads high for what was a good performance in adverse conditions against a top side. Club President Dave Paterson said the result was not that bad considering the number of key Cats’ players out through work commitments or injury, and the conditions on the day. “The blokes showed a lot of heart – especially our band of first year players who remained committed and determined throughout,” Dave said. The Cats are at home at Snowy Oval next Saturday against Cootamundra in what will be a must win game for both sides. Cats’ goal kickers: Tony Fleming 2, and one each to Mal Green and Peter Stockton. Cats’ best: Dave Maxwell, Shaun Allen, Tony Fleming and Daniel Burke.

Dave Maxwell looks to launch the Cats’ into attack.

NAB boosts AFL Auskick in the Mountains Aspiring junior AFL players in Cooma and the Snowy Mountains have received a major boost thanks to the support of the local AFL development officer Stu Wood and the National Australia Bank (NAB). Earlier this year, Stu entered the Cooma Cats’ Auskick program in the AFL’s Auskick Centre of the Year competition and won Round 6 of the competition. Auskick, sponsored by the NAB, is the AFL’s program designed to introduce children in the 6-9 year age-group to AFL football through training and game activities carefully designed to develop AFL skills and awareness. By winning round six of the AFL’s Auskick Centre of the Year competition, the Cooma Cats were presented another AUSKICK resource pack to be presented by the National Australia Bank. This resource kit includes Tackle, Marking and Bump Bags, an Air Compressor, Handball Target, mini Goal Posts, Trolley Bags, Markers, Whistle and extra Aqua NAB Footballs. Stu said this extra package would be really

handy as it will mean the Cooma Cats can set up an Auskick centre in Jindabyne next year, as well as continuing to run the growing Cooma program. “AUSKICK is a great, fun way for youngsters to get an introduction to AFL footy and was critical to the long-term program of developing junior AFL footy across the Monaro and Snowy Mountains,” Stu said. “At the Cooma Cats we have an Under 14 side - the Supercats - now playing each week, and we hope to field an Under 12 side in the future,” Stu said. “AUSKICK provides a great way of showing the girls and boys just how much fun AFL is, and stimulating their interest in playing junior AFL footy in the future “So the support of NAB is critical to allowing us to develop footy in the region,” he said. Future AFL players get a close look at their new training equipment with representatives from the Cooma Branch of the National Australia Bank Cyn Tucker and Lida Walker, and Cooma Cats’ Club President Dave Paterson and Auskick Coordinator Brad Austin.
