Seeding equals more snow During the past six years Snowy Hydro has conducted a major scientific research project which has shown that cloud seeding can increase snowfalls by 14 percent. With the project being conducted in the Snowy Mountains region the increase has benefited many around this region. Snowy Hydro Cloud Seeding Project Director, John Denholm, said, “We are particularly pleased by the findings of the independent scientific evaluation that concluded that under the right conditions, snow falls were shown to increase by 14 percent. Two independent reviews of the results found the research to be sound.” The project was run similar to a medical trial, with different fronts seeded, some not and results taken from all fronts occurring. This meant that by cloud seeding randomly, 40 percent of the cold fronts in the past six years were not seeded. “Given the strong community support to date for the project and the science, with results now proven, I see no reason why our project should continue as a trial and now it should be run as a full operation to bring even further benefit, arguably one and a half times, to all stakeholders.” Snowy Hydro Executive Officer for Water, David Harris, said. The cloud seeding project provides real hope for those people, animals and plants that rely on the snow for their survival, along with farmers who live downstream in the Murray and Murrumbidgee catchment areas. These results can’t be ignored, 14 percent is a significant increase in snowfall. Most importantly the study has found no evidence of any significant environmental impacts, including no negative effects on precipitation downwind of the cloud seeding area.

Funds from both the local and federal governments as well as council and generous donations from Friends of contact and meals on wheels have all helped this project come in on time. This facility could not have been completed without the dedicated work from the tradesmen who worked on the project, some staying back well into the evening to get the job done.

Mark Williams said there were no dramas on the project, everything went like clock work. The idea was first floated nine years ago, as a one stop shop for Cooma and the surrounding districts and today is a reality. Four years ago plans and an expression of interest were submitted, then the land purchased and now it is complete. Special thanks were also paid to Kevin Hambly who kindly donated one of his paintings for the centre.

and several students, all of whom were happy to meet him again. Mr Holts now lives in England, where he is writing two other books. ‘The Gate of Tears’ is set in Sydney’s northern suburbs following the Second World War and is based on a returned sailor, his family arriving from the UK, and how wartime service has changed him. From the excerpt Mr Holt read at the launch, the book promises to be full of humour and human observation.

The unique filtering system seperates solids from the water which, is returned to the truck and reused in batching concrete. The remaining solids harden and can be lifted using an ingenious web under the filter and sent for recycling.

Local students in Youth Parliament Monaro will have a presence on the floor of this year’s YMCA Youth Parliament after two students were selected to represent young people on a range of issues. · Jack Needham from Jindabyne, who attends Jindabyne Central School, has been selected as part of the Transport and Infrastructure team. · Emily Parr, from Bombala, who attends Bombala High School has been selected as part of the Justice, Juvenile Justice and Police team. Member for Monaro, Steve Whan, congratulated the students on their place in the Youth Parliament. “I am always pleased to see young people who are engaged in politics and the Youth Parliament provides a great opportunity for them to have their ideas and opinions heard,” Mr Whan said. “It will also enable them to learn more about how our system of government works and develop a range of other skills.

Mr Whan said the students would join 90 others from around the state at NSW Parliament in Macquarie Street on July 5, 6 and 8 to discuss issues and pass resolutions. “I’m proud that Monaro will be well-represented at this year’s Youth Parliament,” he said. “They will be great ambassadors, not just for the region, but for the interests of young people across the state.” Annie Lam, YMCA Project Officer, said Youth Parliament provided a way for young people to put across their ideas about issues that concern them. “Youth Parliament gives young people a place to have their opinions and concerns heard by parliamentarians and learn about the process of law making,” Ms Lam said. “It is also a great opportunity for students to develop skills in leadership, public speaking, debating and team work.

Everybody enjoyed the opening The Member for Monaro Steve Whan and Member for EdenMonaro, Mike Kelly joined with community representatives at the opening of the Werri-Nina centre on Monday. Also pictured are Anne Mawson, June Dykes, Di Good, mayor Dean Lynch and Norma Field, representing Contact and Meals on Wheels.

Mark Reed and Kevin Rourke have raised $1300 for the ACT Eden Monaro Cancer Group through a recent golf day. Proceeds were presented to Susan Peters-Smith at Sportspower Cooma, last Thursday. There is now a raffle for a Brumbies jumper, tickets available from Sportspower.

Support for cancer group The ACT Eden-Monaro Cancer Support Group has been financially assisting cancer patients in the Cooma region for the past 16 years. As a stand-alone charity, the group receives no funding from either State or Federal Governments but relies wholly and solely on donations from the public and local businesses. All money raised in the Cooma area goes directly back to the community to assist people in the area who are diagnosed with cancer. The group is looking for more volunteers to assist Ray and Susan Peters-Smith who work tirelssly

to raise much-needed funds to help the Cooma community. In the last 12 months, the group has assisted local families to the tune of $30,000 to get treatment in Bega or Canberra, assistance with medication, tube feeding, electricity and gas accounts and well as providing food and petrol vouchers. More funds are urgently needed to continue this assistance. All donations will be gratefully accepted. For more information, phone Ray or Susan on 6452 3093.

Phillips slams ‘ridiculous’ decision A decision by Cooma-Monaro Shire Council not to approve a 100m boundary adjustment on a property north of Bredbo has raised the ire of Cr Winston Phillips. Cr Phillips told his fellow councillors he was disgusted with their decision after the matter was put to the vote. The matter was dealt with at council’s June 15 meeting after being deferred the previous month. The proposal, by Jason and Helen Shimitras, was to allow a boundary adjustment of 100m on one or two allotments of land owned by them. Because the area involved was more than 10 percent of the area, it required development consent under the Yarrowlumla Local Environment Plan, which is now controlled by Cooma-Monaro Shire Council. The purpose of the boundary adjustment was to improve irrigation on the property’s lucerne and oat cropping business. The application was refused because council staff reported access to the property, via a privately owned bridge over the Murrumbidgee River, was not considered to provide satisfactory legal and practical access.

The decision followed a presentation by Mr Shimitras in open forum, where, amongst other things, he said he had a statement from an engineer testifying to the structural soundness of the bridge. Cr Phillips, who had moved an amendment to the recommendation which would have allowed the developmnent, told his fellow councillors the applciation was purely for agricultural purposes and would not be putting any extra pressure on the existing crossing. “Mr Shimitras has just told us the local residents are happy living within their environment and work around the river access. “I don’t think reference to an earlier DA (concerning the development of a youth camp) is relevant. “I think to refuse this application would be quite ridiculous and we should approve it.” The amendment was put to the vote and defeated 5 -2. The original recommedattion, to refuse the application was then put and passed, 5- 2. Cr Phillips commenetd after the vote “That is ridiculous. I am disgusted with council for voting that way”.

As the recipient of the $2000 scholarship, Lisa Baier along with local pottery teacher Petra Murphy launched the Dry Zen Garden on the Monaro, a Kamoto-Cooma Friendship Scholarship Community Arts Project. This was conducted at the Raglan Gallery, who have recently made available a cottage at the back of the gallery for the use of ceramic potters. Originally the scholarship was a donation from the people of Kamoto of over $14,000 in 1998. This was after the Mayor of Kamoto heard of the drought and the hard times for our farmers. Each year the Cooma Monaro Shire Council and Cooma Rotary both donate $500 towards the scholarship. The scholarship is open to people from 18 to 85 years of age and is all about the opportunity for learning. The ‘Monaro Potters’ are a group of about 30 people who have had nowhere to partake in their passion of pottery until now. The launch of both the new potters premises and the Dry Zen Garden was held in conjunction with the Three-stage project. This recognises and celebrates the sister city relationship between Cooma and Kamoto in Japan. Part one of the project was

creating the symbolic sections of three transportable totem poles. Lisa is hopeful they can be displayed at Monaro High School, the Library or even the new ‘Werri-Nina’ Centre. Part two of the project was glazing the pieces, which included a traditional Raku firing workshop. Chris Harford, the administrator of the Canberra Potters Society conducted the workshop at the Raglan on May 29 and 30. Part-three of the project will be the Totem Poles being assembled and placed in their yet to be determined locations. The Dry Zen Garden on the Monaro and rock sculptures will also be incorporated into the official opening, to be held in November. The participants of the workshops were from a wide cross section of the local community, including the Mayor Dean Lynch and Cooma Monaro Shire Council General manger John Vucic.

Welcome for winter staff More than 100 seasonal staff attended the Welcome for Winter Staff on Monday evening, June 21, at the Lake Jindabyne Hotel. Community service operators were there in force and it was amazing to see the wide range of services available to the winter staff. Megan Quinn, pictured at right, the Snowy River Shire Youth Worker did a great job in coordinating the event and the 18 organisations presented to give assistance.. The Neighbourhood Centre was giving out the famous Little Black Book; the NSW Police were giving advice on how many drinks before one is over the limit – currently 100ml in the first hour; for those over the limit; there was advice on the Brain Bus which will operate on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights from 11pm until 4am the following morning. Westpac will stay open until 6pm every Wednesday evening. At the Lounge in the Town Centre on Wednesdays from 7pm onwards, there is the very affordable soup kitchen operated by the all denominational Snowy Mountains Mission. The Southern


General Practice Network was providing information for those facing the emotional challenges of being away from home and Nuggets Family Health Practice advised their surgery hours. Andreas Berchtold from Action Sports Training was giving advice on classes for those wanting to improve their Air sense, work on new tricks for the snow or just have fun on the trampoline at the NSW Sport & Recreation camp where there is a gym. Wilderness Sports was showing off the latest in snow shoes while Perisher showed where the best snow boarding was to be experienced and the National Parks & Wildlife Service supplied information on how to access the staff passes for vehicles. Worksafe Employment Services from the Town Centre, advised people looking for a job. Megan Quinn was more than happy with the way the evening ran. Next year she is hoping to run it closer to the school holidays as the full complement of seasonal staff are not yet in Jindabyne.

Bronnie says thanks

Riposte Lisa Ashurst

Editor, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me in last Saturdays by-election, I was absolutely overwhelmed and very humbled by the support I received and I can assure everyone that I will work very hard to repay the trust that you have placed in me. A very special Thankyou to Sue Litchfield (campaign manager!), Mike Litchfield, Lyle Westaway, Monica Alcock, Dale Coyte, Sue and Ian Litchfield, Vern Drew, Brett Povey, Lesley Keevers, Judy Caldwell, Jacqui Schofield,Penny Larritt, Fi Taylor, Indi Taylor and my fabulous husband Duncan (who never complains about all of the pink in his life!) who handed out my flyers on Saturday, I couldn’t have done it without the terrific support that you all gave me and I so very much appreciated it. I had my first briefing at Council on Friday with John Vucic and I am very excited and enthusiastic about being a part of the Cooma Monaro Shire Council, there are some fantastic initiatives happening around the Shire and so much potential. This is a fantastic community and I am so very proud to be able to represent all of you. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou!! Bronnie Taylor

Sometimes you’ve just gotta take a big leap into the Unknown and cross all your fingers and toes that you end up in a good place when you land, despite those warnings about frying pans and fires that tend to dog you once you let the cat out of the bag re: The Big Leap. These leaps are usually precipitated by a sudden flash of amazing clarity where, for just a few moments, you see the Big Picture and realise that you were never really in that particular snap in the first place. You know, the relationship that turns out to be not quite what you thought it would be, those career hopes that never quite got you over the line or some other life-altering shift that jolts you into taking stock and seeing where life has come up short. But then, there are leaps and there are leaps. Like the acquaintance of years ago who did a freefall into a commune that was supposed to be the closest thing to living a spiritual existence in India without actually going there. Despite warnings from friends, he sold his flat, tossed his well paid job and took off to what turned out to be an unkempt rural

nightmare with a bunch of loafers who wanted to be all macrobiotic without actually doing anything to achieve it. Then one of them planted an illegal crop and they all got busted and the only thing he got out of the whole experience was a police record. Last I heard he was still trying to get his life back. Or the workmate who decided to marry her English penfriend who she’d never met and move into his lovely old cottage in a picturesque village etc. Turned out that while the cottage was definitely old there was very little to call lovely and the picturesque village was actually a small, plain looking town on the outskirts of Manchester or somewhere. His mother didn’t like her, as she’d wanted her son to marry a local girl (who turned up nearly everywhere they went, sobbing and cursing the pair of them) and her new hubby turned out to be not such a good catch after all. Workmate came home after 14 months and eventually got happily married to an Aussie guy she’d known for years. Alright then, so it definitely pays to do a little research into your chosen landing pad but aside from that, if you feel the time has come to beat feet then by all means take a good run-up and go for it because if you procrastinate for too long you might miss out! And then you’ll never know what might have been.

SMEC celebrates its 40th anniversary Message from the CEO, Ross Hitts On 24 June 1970 the Australian Government created the ‘Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation’ (SMEC). Corporatisation of SMEC followed in 1985, and in 1989 SMEC became a Commonwealth Government owned public company. In 1993, SMEC was sold to the staff owned company (Tinbury Pty Ltd) as part of a government asset sale. I will now provide a brief history of SMEC’s operations over the last 40 years. In the 1970s SMEC opened two new offices in Australia, Sydney and Canberra (1972) and three international offices; Kuala Lumpur (1972), Dhaka (1978) and Jakarta (1979). The 1970s witnessed SMEC’s undertaking of ‘first projects’ in South Asia (Bangladesh and India), Asia Pacific (Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam) and Africa (Kenya and Zambia). In 1974, SMEC completed the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme, this project is known as one of civil engineering’s ‘Wonders of the Modern World’ took 25 years and $820M to complete. SMEC continued its success in the 1980s, opening an office in Brisbane, Australia (1989), and had many ‘first projects’ in Africa (Botswana, Mozambique and Ethiopia), and the Middle East and North Asia region (Egypt, Bahrain and Iran). The 1990s witnessed SMEC opening nine new offices in: Delhi (1992); Hong Kong and Manila (1993); Hanoi (1994); Lesotho and Port Moresby (1996); Lahore (1997); Sri Lanka (1998) and Almaty (1999). There were also many ‘first projects’ in Africa (South Africa, Eritrea, and North Sudan) and the Middle East and North Asia region (UAE, Iraq, Afghanistan and Tajikistan). Since the millennium, SMEC has expanded its operations through

SMEC history

acquisitions. In 2005 SMEC purchased 80 percentof Brisbane City Enterprises Pty Ltd to service Local Government clients. In 2007 SMEC made two acquisitions; it established a subsidiary, SM Urban Pty Ltd (49 percentownership) to service urban development clients; and acquired EGC Pakistan to establish a local presence in Pakistan. In 2008 SMEC entered a Joint Venture arrangement in Perenia Pty Ltd (33 percentownership), to provide carbon services; and in 2009 SMEC acquired CEIS in Pakistan to service oil and gas clients. The 2000’s has been a strong growth period for SMEC with 20 new offices opening in: Accra and Townsville (2000); Addis Ababa (2001); Dar es Salaam and Kuwait City (2002); Entebbe and Maputo (2003); Doha (2004); Abu Dhabi, Gaberone and Khartoum (2006); New Caledonia and South Sudan (2008); Traralgon (2007); Adelaide, Geelong, Gold Coast, Ho Chi Minh City, Juba and Nairobi (2008). There were also many ‘first projects’ in Africa (Burkina Faso, Mali and South Sudan) and the Middle East and North Asia region (Kazakhstan, Kuwait and Qatar). As you can see, SMEC has achieved many great things over the past 40 years. I would like to thank you, each and every staff member, you have all contributed to our success. It is our people that have enabled SMEC to continue to open new offices and undertake ‘first projects’ in new countries; it is our people that have built the best possible teams to meet the needs of our clients; and it is our people that have enabled SMEC to reach this 40th anniversary milestone. Ross Hitt SMEC CEO


Michelle Burchall

SMEC grew out of the Snowy Mountains Scheme, a massive hydropower and irrigation project undertaken in Australia between 1949 and 1974. In the post World War Two construction boom, the scheme became the iconic symbol of nation-building and remains, to this day, one of the world’s civil engineering wonders. The purpose of the scheme was to divert the rivers of southeastern Australia back towards the west to provide irrigation water and to generate peak load electricity to the states of NSW and Victoria. At the time it was the largest infrastructure project in Australia’s history. It brought together 100,000 workers from 30 countries who, over 25 years, constructed 16 major dams, seven power stations and one pumping station, 145km of tunnels, 80km of aqueducts and 2,000km of roads. The Australian Government financed the scheme with the assistance of a $100 million loan from the World Bank. The scheme was administered by the Snowy Mountains Authority (SMA) owned by the Australian Government. By 1960, the SMA was in demand to design and manage development projects in Australia and overseas, particularly on behalf of the Australian aid program. The early projects were primarily in water resources development, power generation and transmission and road engineering, using skills acquired during the Snowy Mountains Scheme. However, SMEC’s capabilities very quickly expanded to encompass irrigation, rural and regional development, training and capacity building. Early international projects included geological

investigation along the Mekong River, road construction in northern Thailand and hydropower development in Cambodia and Malaysia. Among its expanding Australian portfolio, SMEC’s early projects included the design of Fairbairn dam in central Queensland, supervision of construction of the Ord Dam in the north of Western Australia, the Eastern Suburbs Railway in Sydney and the Shoalhaven water supply and pumped storage project in NSW. As the Snowy Mountains Scheme approached completion, the Australian Government decided against disbanding this multi-skilled, multinational workforce and chose instead to establish the Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation (SMEC) as an agency of the Commonwealth Government. This Act of Parliament was passed in 1970 and during the next few years SMEC offices were established in most Australian capital cities. Internationally, SMEC expanded its operations to include work with the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, beginning in the 1970s. During this time, SMEC opened up its first project coordination offices in Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan and Mauritius. Later, in the 1990s, SMEC expanded into Africa, the Middle East, India, Vietnam and Papua New Guinea. SMEC was corporatised in 1989 and privatised by sale to staff in 1993. In that year, SMEC staff numbered just 200. Today, SMEC employs more than 3,800 people, has a network of over 20 subsidiary and associated companies, and is ranked among the world’s top 100 international design firms.

SMEC Foundation The SMEC Foundation was established in 2001 by the SMEC Group of Companies in Cooma, NSW; the birthplace of SMEC. The Foundation was established to provide small-scale grant support to community groups and development projects throughout Australia and in the many countries in which SMEC operates. The Foundation’s principal areas of focus include health, education, environment, disability, community development and emergency relief. The purpose of the SMEC Foundation is to: • Consolidate SMEC’s links with the communities in which it works. • Provide an umbrella for the community development activities that SMEC staff have undertaken, in parallel with development projects, for more than 30 years.

• Ensure that SMEC’s community support delivers the best possible social and developmental impact. The SMEC Foundation operates with financial support from the SMEC Group of Companies as well as donations from staff. The SMEC Foundation does not undertake major projects. Instead, it believes, from corporate experience, that small amounts of money, spent wisely,

can produce far reaching social and economic benefits. Applications for support in cash or kind from the SMEC Foundation can be made by downloading this form. For further information on the SMEC Foundation, please email

GSAHS totally smoke-free All sites in Greater Southern Area Health Service (GSAHS) will be totally smoke free by today, June 30, with the inclusion of outdoor smoking areas at mental health units. In 2007 phase four of the NSW Smoke Free Workplace Policy was introduced for all GSAHS health service buildings and cars, with some designated outdoor smoking areas remaining at mental health inpatient facilities. Extending the ban on smoking to include mental health inpatient facilities is an important step to ensure a totally smoke free workplace to help protect patients, visitors and staff from the harmful effects of environmental tobacco smoke, according to Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Consumer and Carer Participation Strategies Coordinator Anne Francis. Ms Francis said implementing the final phase of the policy to include mental healthcare facilities will improve equity in healthcare. Ms Francis said: “People living with mental illness have some of the highest rates of nicotine dependence in the community, with resulting high

levels of sickness and death.” “Implementing this policy in mental healthcare facilities will assist to discourage tobacco use and offer consumers and staff the opportunity to consider quitting, as well as reducing exposure to environmental tobacco smoke,” she said. Ms Francis advised education and training has been conducted with the staff of all inpatient mental healthcare facilities. Support is now available to all patients, visitors and staff including fact sheets and Quitline referral forms. Mental health inpatients will also receive free Nicotine Replacement Therapy to assist to manage nicotine withdrawal during their stay. To help reduce staff exposure to harmful passive tobacco smoke, mental health clients will now also be asked to refrain from smoking in the presence of health service employees during home visits. “These changes will continue our duty of care to provide patients, visitors and staff with a smoke free environment,” Ms Francis said. For free and confidential support phone Quitline on 13-7848 (13-QUIT).

DECODING DOG BODY LANGUAGE Cats and dogs can’t tell us how they’re feeling with words: instead they express their emotions through body language. But dogs and cats communicate in very different ways so it’s important to teach your children how to ‘read’ their pet.


Happy – wagging its tail enthusiastically; ‘smiling’ with its mouth partly open and tongue hanging out; trying to sniff or lick you. Angry – lips pulled back and teeth bared; growling and/or barking aggressively; leaning or lunging forward menacingly; hair standing up on its back and neck. Frightened or threatened – cowering or crouching with its tail tucked under; backing away; whimpering; hiding under a chair or table; ears pulled down and back.

LJ Hooker Cooma - HAVE MOVED After many years of LJ Hooker Cooma's association with Vale St as it's office location it has come time for a move and a change to a better position and bigger office.

LJ Hooker Cooma have moved to their new premises at 80 Sharp St last Monday. David Uzzell Principal of LJ Hooker Cooma & Jindabyne says "This is great news for our clients and customers as it gives us bigger window space and a better position for traffic flow ensuring that more potential purchasers can see your properties at any time. We are now the first real estate agent people see as they enter Cooma and are certainly amongst the most well known and respected names in the real estate industry.” Some more great news from LJ Hooker Cooma and LJ Hooker Jindabyne for our Vendors as well as buyers, is that we have secured the 1300 REAL ESTATE phoneword phone number for Bredbo 2626, Cooma 2630, Berridale 2628, Adaminaby 2629 and Jindabyne 2627. This includes all the associated suburbs in the same post codes. This starts on the 1st of July. What this means to our vendors is that Buyers can drive past and see a For Sale sign and see 1300 REAL ESTATE, go home and still be able to remember this number so that they can contact us without having to search for a pen and write our number down or even search for our number on the internet. David Dawkins your local LJ Hooker salesman says "This is a great advantage for our vendors as people looking for property can remember one easy number and give us a call without the hassle of looking up or remembering a different number." "Phonewords make sense in the Real Estate Industry as there are many choices of agent and ways for people to contact the agent. Choosing 1300 REAL ESTATE was an easy business decision for me to ensure that LJ Hooker Cooma and LJ Hooker Jindabyne can provide our clients the best possible service across the Snowy Mountains" says David Uzzell

Firefighters take winter fire safety blitz to the snow The NSW Fire Brigades (NSWFB) is conducting comprehensive fire safety inspections of Thredbo Village ski lodges this week as the busy NSW snow season gets under way. Emergency Services Minister and Member for Monaro Steve Whan said NSWFB and Department of Planning fire and building safety experts were spending six days inspecting more than 75 ski lodges, hostels, apartments and motels in and around Thredbo. “Each year thousands of holiday makers descend on Thredbo to enjoy the snowfields,” Mr Whan said.

“Fire officers will inspect the various kinds of accommodation on offer to ensure that smoke alarms are fitted in all sleeping areas and adequate fire exits are available. “These inspections play a vital role in providing a fire safe environment for permanent residents of the ski lodges and holidaymakers looking to enjoy the 2010 ski season,” he said. NSWFB Commissioner Greg Mullins said the fire safety inspections in Thredbo were integral to NSWFB’s ongoing commitment to promoting winter fire safety and undertaking regular fire safety inspections across the State.

Natural disaster Emergency Services Minister Steve Whan has announced Natural Disaster declarations for the Eurobodalla, Bega, Bombala and Cooma-Monaro local government areas in Southern NSW. Mr Whan said the declarations followed the completion of council damage assessments from the storms, winds and heavy rain that swept the region on May 30 and 31. “The storms left thousands of homes without power and the SES answered hundreds of calls for help from residents as the high winds damaged buildings,” Mr Whan said. “Damage to public infrastructure is estimated by the councils to be about $300,000, which includes work to repair damage to public roads and bridges and clean up fallen trees and debris.

“These natural disaster declarations mean that a range of people who have suffered property damage, including residents, primary producers, business owners and councils, can seek assistance. “The Keneally Government stands ready to provide these communities with the assistance they need,” he said. Mr Whan again congratulated the State Emergency Service (SES) for its work in all the affected areas. “The members of the SES and other agencies who worked throughout the storms and flooding did an outstanding job. “We owe our emergency services a great debt of gratitude for their commitment to assisting and protecting our community during natural disasters and other emergencies.”

New book celebrates 90 years in Federal Parliament

With the end of financial year fast approaching, Snowy River Shire Council would like to advise the public of the following cut-off dates for receipting, application lodgement, creditors and debtors.

The National Party of Australia, or The Nationals as it is now known, has been a forceful and influential participant in Australia’s development for 90 years. Despite many predictions of its imminent demise or amalgamation, it remains an independent organisation and has never been unrepresented in federal parliament since its formation as the Australian Country Party on 22 January 1920. Moreover, since federation, no other party has spent as much time on the government benches – more than 54 years. A new book on the party’s history, Ninety Not Out: The Nationals 19202010, researched and written by former journalist and party federal director, Paul Davey, has just been released. Based on official party and other records and many personal interviews, Ninety Not Out covers the highs and lows of the party’s evolution and documents for the first time the detailed background to many dramatic events in which it has been involved. Always numerically small in parliamentary terms, it has been the most stable of the major political parties, having had only 12 federal leaders over the entire period, three

of whom served as prime minister and most of whom frequently served as acting prime minister. Its parliamentarians have brought an earthiness to the national political debate, sharpened by a deep knowledge of the regions and communities they have represented across vast areas of the continent beyond the capital cities. This is the story of a political organisation that has made an enormous, and largely unrecognised, contribution to Australia’s social and economic development. The former vice-chancellor of the University of Canberra, Professor Don Aitkin, says of Ninety Not Out: Paul Davey has written an engaging and forceful history of a political party that has punched far above its weight for the best part of a century. Why and how it has been able to do so is a continuously interesting question, and in answering it Davey gives special weight to its leaders, including Sir Earle Page, probably the most inventive federal politician of the twentieth century, and Sir John McEwen, the most feared political leader of that century’s second half. Published in hardcover by the UNSW Press and running to nearly 500 pages with illustrations, Ninety Not Out will be featured at the NSW Nationals Annual General Conference in Tamworth from July 1-3.

Receipting Receipting for 2010 will close at 2pm on Wednesday June 30 and re-open at 8:30am on Friday July 2. During this time Council will accept payment by cash or cheque only. No debit or credit card transactions will be accepted. Manual receipts will be issued and processed to the account as of July 1. Applications Applications will be accepted during the receipting close-off period and acknowledged on Friday July 2. There may be delays in the ability to provide updates of applications during this one-and-a-half day period. Creditors The last payment run for 2010 will be paid to creditors accounts on Monday 28 June. In order to ensure prompt payment, all suppliers must forward their invoices to Council immediately. Please note that all invoices must make reference to the Council authorised purchase order number. Please contact Council’s finance department if clarification is required. Debtors It would be appreciated if all rates and water payments could be made through DEFT (www.; or, for sundry debtors, made by direct deposit by Tuesday June 29.

Producers from Berridale and Bombala last week commenced a new course from Industry and Investment NSW (formerly NSW DPI) that highlights the significant part that native pastures can play within farming systems in the Monaro region. “Farming Native Pastures” is a course that builds on producers’ plant recognition skills and emphasises the effects a pasture plants’ lifecycle has on feed quality. The course also investigates different strategies for pasture and grazing management, and the potential economic effects of these management options. The role pastures play in producing feed for livestock throughout the year is also explored using the computer program “Grazclock” designed by I&I NSW Sheep and Wool Officer Doug Alcock. Using radar graphs, Grazclock allows producers to compare the year-round feed requirements of their livestock enterprises with their farms pasture production.

The program highlights feed surpluses and shortfalls and demonstrates the potential effects of changes to pasture management or grazing enterprises on feed availability. A large proportion of information that has been used to develop this 3 part workshop has been provided by the Monaro Grasslands Research and Demonstration Project, conducted by I&I NSW. This research work that has been conducted in the local area, with funding support from the Southern Rivers Catchment Management Authority, has been investigating the effects of fertility on native pastures from both production and biodiversity angles for the past 7 years. The “Farming Native Pastures” workshop has been developed locally by staff from I&I NSW and is now being delivered to farmers in many areas across NSW. Anyone interested in participating in future Farming Native Pasture courses should contact NSW I&I in Cooma on (02)6452 3411 to register their interest.

Paypal trap for rural users Former State Member for Monaro Peter Cochran has issued a warning to PAYPAL users in rural areas of NSW who have changed their address from a property name to the Emergency Services rural addressing system. Rural landholders who registered their property name as an official address with Paypal some years ago, now under new Federal Laws may be required to establish their identity and address with PAYPAL in a similar fashion to the 100 points used in Banks, before drawing funds. “Paypal , based in the USA, will ask for copies of electricity or rates accounts to establish the address of the Paypal account. As most Government services now use the rural addressing system , addresses will change and Paypal will not accept the new address as being authentic because it does not correspond with the original,” Mr Cochran explained. “I have had the experience of having a substantial amount locked into paypal who will not

release the money until I can establish my address exactly as it was when I registered for paypal. This is proving to be almost impossible.” “Paypal will not accept accounts documents as evidence which are more than three months old. They will also only allow a photo licence to be used to establish one of the many tests. For example you can use the licence to establish date of birth or photo identity but not place of residence,” Mr Cochran said. “It is very likely that PAYPAL have the use of millions of dollars for substantial periods by holding account members funds. There is no crisis contact line but only an automated email response to inquires or complaints.” Mr Cochran continued, “ I would strongly recommend that rural landholders withhold from any PAYPAL transactions until they have established that there are no limitations on their accounts relating to identity, or better still avoid PAYPAL altogether,” Mr Cochran concluded.

Learning about Scotland This term Cooma North Public School students have been learning about Scotland. As Scotland is the chosen country for the CWA this year, the students decided to invite some local CWA members to their hall last Monday to show them what they have been doing. There were varying designs of tartan, blue and white balloons and they had the Scottish flag flying. The children danced a jig and recited a Scottish poem before serving afternoon tea to their visitors. The students made a selection of oat cakes which were them topped with cheese the students had made, some shortbread and not so Scottish cupcakes that had been decorated in the Scottish colours of blue and white to keep with the theme.



Monaro High School students get down and dirty helping the Cooma Lions Club last week.

MHS students lend a hand Monaro High School students from year 12 who are participating in a building construction VET course were last week helping out in the community. The school was asked by the Lions Club if they had any students that could help with the laying of the concrete path near the showground. The students have been doing some concreting work around the school and local area, so were only too keen to assist in this community

Netball grand finals end season

Shell Shampas - Winners of the Open Women’s Netball Grand Final. Saturday June 26 started with everyone getting nervous as we looked at the sky. It was drizzling just about everywhere and heavier in some places. We all wondered if we were going to be able to complete the last games of the season or if they would have to be put off till next term. However, there were a few promising patches of blue sky and we hoped for the best. By the time everyone got ready for the first game most of the rain had cleared, although it was still very cloudy and it stayed bitterly cold for the rest of the day. The first game of the day was the 12s Division Grand Final between Lime Leopards who had finished on top of the ladder at the end of the rounds and Hot Chilli Peppers who had won the Semi-final to advance straight into the Grand Final. It was a hotly contested game, with great skills shown by all. Lime Leopards were victorious after a fantastic battle. Many of the players will be moving up to the 14s Division next year and the level of skill shown last Saturday proves they are ready to take on that challenge. About 20 Netta players braved the cold

and damp to make the most of their last game of the season. It was going to be a fun game as there weren’t full teams there but the enthusiasm was evident. The players pulled together to make it a great event. All the girls played exceptionally well and showed great advancement of the skills they have been learning. The final game of the day and the 2010 season was the Open Division Grand Final between Shell Shampas and Fuchsias.

Under 8s

Cooma Colts under 8s played at home this weekend against Tuggeranong and what an action-packed game to watch with Cooma’s captain Eddy Clarke sprinting the length of the field to score. Will Cahill scored one try and Noah Saddler three tries all from busting runs. Great yards were made by the hard running of Hudson Laird, Marshall Bowerman and James Dyball, with fantastic defensive tackling from Tyler Rees, Ethan Connolly, Braith Fitzgerald and Aiden Childs kept Tuggeranong to 14 points. A special mention to Will Cahill who was relentless in his cover tackling. Cooma Colts came away winners 20 to 14 in what was their best game yet….Congratulations boys. Best and Fairest this week went to Eddy Clarke.

The under 12s travelled to Kambah to play the Tuggeranong Bulls in a game that saw the Colts make too many mistakes and give away several penalties which nearly cost them the game. In the first few minutes of the game Jake Hedger scored a quick try which was converted by Alex Swan followed by another try by Zac Saddler with a strong run from half way and the conversion was successful by Dane Freimanis. The Colts lead 12 nil. Zac was able to score again after some strong attack by Declan and Carson. The Bulls attacked back but we were able to hold them up over the line and then we quickly scored again through a great run by Matthew Chelin which was converted by Tim. The score now was 22 to nil. Again the Buffalos attacked and this time they were successful in getting the ball over the line and convert the try. Zac Saddler scored again before half time and Declan was able to convert. The half time score was 28/6 to the Colts. In the second half good runs by Declan and Jake and good tackling by Alex resulted in Matty Robinson converting his own try – the score now 34/6. This was the last time the Colts scored as penalties and mistakes gave the Bulls most of the possession and they were able to put the ball over the line three times within a short time frame and then close to full time the Bulls scored a penalty try which left the full time score to be 34/30 in the Colts favour. Awards went to Declan, Patrick, Tim, Alex and Matthew Chelin and the Medal went to Matty Robinson.

Under 14s

Cooma Colts Under 9s played at home to Sth Tuggeranong Blue. The boys started the game off well and within minutes into the game, Damon Fanning went in for the first try of the game. Sam Sergo’s attempt at goal was unsuccessful. Before long Nicholas Zusak had crossed the line, with an unsuccessful attempt at goal by Remy Oldrey. Damon Fanning was lucky enough to go in again under the post with a unsuccessful attempt at goal by Noah Saddler. The first half was starting to show a pattern as Nicholas Zusak went in again with Damon Fanning being successful at his attempt at goal. Which had the first half time score 18-6. Coming back into the second half Tuggeranong seemed to pick up the pace scoring two more tries and with a successful goal. Tries scored in the second half for Cooma went to Will Pendergast, Sam Sergo, James Hayden, with goals by Nicholas Zusak and James Hayden. The full time score was 34-6 with this week’s medal going to Nicholas Zusak and the McDonalds award going to Damon Fanning. Apologies for last week the Medal went to Jordan McLeod and the McDonalds award went to Darnel Bartlett.

Placed sixth on the competition ladder, Cooma Colts Under 14 side took on fifth placed Yass in Yass on Sunday. From the kickoff Cooma received a penalty for offside and it looked like it was going to be a hard day for the team following bus troubles earlier in the morning. Tackling techniques let the team down in the first half which allowed Yass to take a 22 to 0 lead. Cooma rallied after halftime and following some strong tackles by Jamie Clifford, Richard Bensley and Kurt Rindermann the team seemed to be getting the hang of the game. Cooma held its own for some time with both sides battling hard until Jack Williams received the ball 70m out for a great run to the line for Cooma’s first try. Good tackling from both sides was the order of the second half. Yass eventually answered with another try, but Cooma weren’t finished yet. The Colts put together an impressive display of attacking football to switch from one side of the field to the other for Jack Williams to finish off a great team try which had Cooma winning the second half two tries to one. Unfortunately the first half had let them down for Yass to take the two competition points 22 to 8. The team medal went to Jack Williams with Jamie Clifford collecting another McDonald’s award for the strong game he had put in.

Under 10s

Under 15s

Under 9s

Cooma Colt’s under 10s played South Tuggeranong on Sunday winning 32 points to 20. The boys came out strong with James Hill scoring quickly and Dylan Van Gemert converting within minutes of play. Tuggeranong fought back scoring two tries, so the boys had to then regain control of the game, which they did when James Cahill made a break and scored and a great conversion from Luke Day put the boys back in the lead. Dylan Van Gemert pushed through with his usual force to stretch out and place the ball over the line to score a fantastic try of the day, and then to have another strong run down the side line, off load to James Hill, who than ran away and scored his second try in the corner, proved that the boys are starting to play great football as a team. Bill Zammit had an amazing game scoring his first try for the session. Connor Inskip and Chris McDonald both had some great runs. Lachlan Inskip again weaved his way through the defence this week with consistency scoring an amazing three tries. Well done to all the boys, and happy birthday to James Hill and Luke Day.

Under 11s

The Colts under 11s played Gungahlin Bulls in a top of the table clash at the showground on Sunday. After a lot of dropped ball from both sides the Bulls hung on to it for a set of six and opened the scoring with a converted try. Damo Hayden replied with a length of the field try which he converted to make it six points all. The Bulls were next to score to put them in front by four points just before half time. The Colts evened it up with Damo Hayden scoring his second try after great team play. At half time it was anybody’s game at 10 all. The Bulls scored first in the second half to take a 14 to 10 lead and not long after increased it to 18 points to 10. Tyler Fanning then put Cooma back in the game by crashing over out wide to see the colts trail by four points. With 10 minutes remaining the boys had their chances but unfortunately couldn’t get the ball over the line. The Bulls hung on to win 18 points to 14. The Percy’s Award this week went to Dom Mc Donald. The medal to Hugh Allen and the Mc Donald’s awards went to Ben Hayden and Jesse Mc Mahon.


Under 16s

The boys took on the Gungahlin Bulls at the Cooma Showground last Friday night. Cooma got off to a very poor start and conceded three early tries to the Bulls. In the early stages of the game the boys had no sliding defence, gave away unnecessary penalties and saw very little of the ball. Late in the half Tom Harmey dashed 10 metres through the defence to score adjacent to the posts. Mithchell Hynes added the extras and the boys finally started to look like a football team. Moments later, another raid was launched and Dane McCarthy, in his first game back in the side after a three season break, raced over the line via a “speculator” pass from Mitchell Hynes. At half time the score was a respectable 16 to 12 in the Bulls favour. At the break, coach Mark Williams was critical of the boy’s lack of discipline and told them that if they stuck to their game plan and simply played football the game was theirs for the taking. The Bulls scored early in the second half and were able to capitalise on penalties and possession handed to them by a still undisciplined Cooma outfit. Late in the game Cooma showed what they could do with possession when our most recent signing, Brian Cronan, finished off a backline move and showed blistering pace as he raced 20 metres to score under the posts. Cooma failed to reach their true potential and were defeated by 22 to 18. Best for Cooma in attack were Campbell Hillman, Dane McCarthy, Jesse Jackson, Mathew Crowley, Mitchell Hynes, Tim Williams while in defence Dan Clark, Chris Evans, Andrew Jones, Tom Harmey , and Jake Byrne were rock solid and Jack Johnson showed safe hands at fullback. Next Friday the boys travel to Bungendore. Thanks to the Hayden, Russell and Inskip families for running the Kiosk and the 100 Club. The winner of the 100 Club went to Catherine Pearce. Also a reminder to all teams to turn up for mini lotto each Friday as some teams are not doing their turn. Any players wishing to register for this year need to do so before Wednesday June 30. No registrations can be received after this date.

Cooma Tigers match results Tigers, Fifths march on

Cooma Tigers Division Five Travelled to Canberra on Saturday to take on Brindabella. Last time the teams met they played out a tough two-all draw; this time it was a must win game, and the Tigers wanted to prove that they were the better team. The pitch was in bad shape from the rain; water surrounded the corners, the muddy centre was ankle deep, an uphill run each half. The conditions didn’t worry the boys, and from the start they controlled the game. A strong midfield and a new forward combination of Cam Wall and Ben Lollback were putting the opposition defence under pressure. Chances were created, and the Tigers were unlucky not to find the goal. With 5 minutes remaining in the half Cooma finally got the goal they deserved. Brendan Wall’s through ball found brother Cam, who confidently put the ball in the back of the net. The second half started with the conditions getting tougher. The opposition, not liking Cooma’s dominance in the midfield, resorted to some aggressive tactics and bad tackles. Brindabella were lucky to equalise midway through the half, when Cooma lost concentration and were unable to clear the ball from the goal. For Cooma the best was yet to come. A long goal kick from Tigers keeper Mark Chenery found Lachie King on the right; Lachie ran the ball through the defence to the corner of the box and slammed the ball into the top left corner, giving the Tigers a well earned 2-1 win, and moving them up the table. Man of the match went to Lachie King, followed

by Ben Lollback, Paul Lawson, Cam Wall and Kabir Lawal. Coach Daniel Walker, playing with the 4ths in Cooma, gave his thanks to Brendan Wall, Andrew Whiting and Tim Jordan for their help coaching and managing the team for the game. The Tigers have a week off, then Cooma will see a big weekend of football with both division four and five playing at home on Saturday July 10, so come and show your support and cheer on the Tigers.

Pain continues for fourths

The Cooma Tigers State League Four side took on a powerful UCU Pumas side on Saturday in Cooma, suffering a hugely disappointing 5-0 loss. Despite coach Damian Knight’s attempts to fire-up the troops before the game, the Tigers looked flat and off-the-pace. Positives were hard to find in an insipired first half performance, and at the break it was 2-0 to the visitors. The bad news continued with pacey striker Brendan Bogatek ruled out for the second half with a head-injury. Some tactical notes from coach Knight and Nestor Ibarra saw Cooma come out with a different approach in the second half. Michael Corcoran was fearsome in defence, Mark Burke solid in the centre of midfield, and young Riley Mitchell was full of running up front. Despite increasing their possession and creating more pressure on the opposition, Cooma couldn’t find the breakthrough; UC running out 5-0 winners. Best-on-field: Michael Corcoran, Riley Mitchell, Mark Burke, and Ben Woodhouse

Cooma defeats ANU ANU had a very good start, being possessed of good passing and an organised system of positioning in the first 30 minutes of the game. Cooma, however, was not troubled by these qualities, and caused plenty of trouble for the ANU defence throughout the first period. Cooma went into the change room at half-time frustrated that they did not secure a three or four goal lead. This was in no small part the blame of the brilliant goalkeeping of ANU’s keeper. Cooma was the dominant side also in the second-half.

Munoz replaced Schofield at the break, and as soon as the second-half started Josifovski scored the first goal. He was having a great first half and received a through-ball from Munoz, finishing with a left footer past the keeper. The second goal for Cooma came in the 56th minute; a corner was taken by Munoz, and the ball was captured by Ian Elliott who tapped it coolly into the net. ANU were largely restricted to counter-attacks, but it paid off as Cooma’s usually solid defence crumbled in the 74th minute. A knifing ball through the Tiger’s defence and Cooma’s goalkeeper

Frankie was beaten with a powerful shot. The third goal for Cooma came in the 77th minute. Elliott crossed the ball from the right, and Barsley jumped in a towering fashion and headed powerfully past the keeper. This was not the only chance for Barsley, who continuously threatened the ANU goal. Two more dangerous players who had numerous opportunities in front of goal were Josifovski and Gecic. Best player of Cooma: G. Josifovski

Beavers defeat Woden 4-0

Cooma ladies division 3 (aka The Beavers) had a great 4-0 win against Woden last Sunday. Pictured above, Donna in defence, Karlee the striker and Michelle in the midfield. Great game had by all, especially Candice Geach scoring 3 goals, special thanks goes to Libby Goggin, Tina Caffarelli and Deanne Baines for filling in for us.

50 years of inter-town competition Over the long weekend four teams of children from Bombala travelled to Fairy Meadow, a suburb of Wollongong to play in their annual football and netball carnival. This year was the 50th year this event was to take place and representing Bombala were an under 10 netball team, an under 12 netball team as well as an under 10 rugby league side and an under 12 rugby league side. The Bombala teams made a white wash of Fairy Meadow coming home with four wins from four teams. The junior girls won 10-5, senior girls won 18-12, junior boys won 54-12 and senior boys won 18-4. Each year the teams take it in turns to travel on the June long weekend to either Fairy Meadow or Bombala, to compete for the Father McCormick Cup, for the footballers or the Peter Cochran Cup, for the netballers, both perpetual trophies, going home with the winners until the following year. As this was the 50th year of competition between St John Vianney in Fairy Meadow and Bombala, a gala parents only night was held on the Saturday night at the Fraternity Club in Fairy Meadow. Some of the first team players were present for the dinner along with other past players. Games were all played on Sunday, then a family evening was held at St John Vianney School. Accommodation while away is in the form of Back L-R: Monica Mulcahy (Assistant Coach); Jamie being billeted by the other team, making for a Marshall (Goulburn); fun filled weekend. Rachelle Paine (Cooma); The competition is believed to have started Thomas Griffin (Eden); with two men in a pub, believe it or not! Dylan Cuthbert (Bega); John Gingerlee from Bombala and Kevin Anthony McKenna Purss from Fairy Meadow, banter between (Bermagui); Matthew Meijer (Mystery Bay); the two went back and forth about ‘my teams and Kevin Rourke (Head better than yours’. Coach). It was then decided to settle the banter by Front L-R: Jodie Marshall having the teams actually play each other and (Goulburn); Staci Paine so began a now 50 year history of sporting (Cooma); Tania Hillier friendship.

2010 Paddy Pallin ski race

The Paddy Pallin Junior cross country ski race will be held at 11am this Saturday at the Perisher Valley Nordic Shelter. The race is for children up to 16 years of age. The Paddy Pallin Junior has been a Perisher Valley event for many years; our records suggest that this is the 52nd year. It is the OLDEST cross country ski event in Australia (older than the KAC and older than the Paddy Pallin Classic (now replaced by the Snowy Mountains Classic) – and it’s just for the YOUNGEST skiers. The Paddy Pallin Junior provides an opportunity for juniors to try cross country skiing. It’s a fun ski race (no prizes for first, second and third) but everyone gets a certificate! You can ski in it if you are only two years old or over 15, as long as you were under 16 at December 31, 2009. The distance you ski depends on your age and snow conditions.

The older skiers (14/15 year olds) ski up to 5 kilometres – the younger skiers (3/4 year olds) ski a few hundred metres, depending on conditions. In 2010 the race will be held at the Perisher Valley Nordic Shelter. After the race the usual festivities – poppers and hot dogs and spot prizes – will be held in or around the Nordic Shelter. We will run the event regardless of the snow conditions (unless there are blizzard conditions). Originally organised by Paddy Pallin, Tony and Sandra Greville have run it for the last few years. Entry is on the day, and there’s no charge. Just turn up to register and pick up your bib at the Nordic shelter from about 10am. Come and give it a go! For information ring Tim Greville on 0428159336 or Peter Cunningham on 0411 129 363.


Roosters crow over Stallions The in-form Cooma team suffered their first defeat of the season going down to Bega at Bega 38-24 after going into the sheds at half time 18 all. Bega were the first to stamp some authority racing in three tries and pushing Cooma back with strong swarming defence. All of a sudden Cooma went bang, bang and raced in three of their own converted tries to lead 18-12 with about 10 minutes left to half time. Bega scored again after substantial pressure holding up two sets of six, taking it to 18 all at half time. Both sides looked pretty determined to take control of the second half but Bega getting the right bounces and the 50/50 calls going their way starved Cooma of the ball and crossed the line to run out to a commanding 38 points to 18 lead. Cooma tried several different things but could not get any cohesion going. Late in the game Cooma crossed and converted to bring the final score to 38-24 Bega’s way. Cooma can certainly handle Bega and the boys will be keen for the second round clash at Cooma in early August. Best for Cooma were forwards Clay Clear, captain coach Donald and Russell while Stewart, Moon and Salvestro made yards when in possession. Reserves Cooma took on second place Bega and by fulltime had completely wiped them off the paddock with a very dominant display running out convincing winners 36 points to 6. Captain coach Rod Palmer has the team very keen and continuously reminds the troops that with lots of numbers the on each individual to train and play well and at times try different positions. The forwards were again lead strongly by Bond,

Winter, Smith and Lewis while Rolfe, Kaufline and winger Thomas were strong. With the bye next weekend, the reserves squad will full to the brim with players ready to take on comp leaders Moruya. Under 18’s Again blow good lead – Bega 38 Cooma 16 Using the wind well and showing urgency, strength and gritty determination, the Cooma under 18’s raced away to a 16 points to nil lead and were playing well enough to convince the coaching staff and supporters they would score more points to put second placed Bega away. Bega juniors always had a good side with plenty of variety used the ball well when in possession and over ran Cooma to runout big winners 38-16. Cooma tried but without solid condition to last 70 minutes of football were no match for a bigger, stronger, fitter coast side. There is only one way boys that you will put this two halves of football together and that is giving your coach a fair go by training harder and listening to him. You have the talent you now need to show some respect. There is no football this weekend but Cooma have again drawn a bye this weekend coming, but the following week will see football return to one of the Monaro’s proudest football clubs when Cooma play Moruya at Bombala in two grades on Sunday July 11. With a number of Bombala boys enjoying playing with the club, the committed were in full support of the request to play a game in their hometown. This will be a normal home game for the Cooma Stallions so your full support is encouraged.

Come and try day The Kosciuszko Cross Country Ski School will start the Junior Development and ‘family friendly’ Family X Country Ski programs on Saturday July 3 from the Perisher Nordic Shelter. Organiser Acacia Rose said ‘we hope that more local people will be encouraged to spend Saturday out on the Perisher Nordic Trails as a family, and enjoy the fresh air, fresh snow, sunshine and exercise.’ ‘The Perisher Nordic Shelter is an excellent and family friendly facility adjacent to the Perisher Nordic Trails and is a great base for cross country skiers.’ ‘The Kosciuszko Cross Country Ski School is expanding its program this year to include a Junior Development Program and Family X Country Ski Saturdays.’

‘The Juniors program will run over 10 weeks and registrations will be at 9am at the Perisher Nordic Shelter Saturday July 3.’ ‘The Family X Country Ski Saturdays are open to all skier levels and registrations will be at 9.15am at the Perisher Nordic Shelter.’ ‘Sunday July 4 is also a special day and local people who have never tried X country skiing might like to try their hand - and their ski legs at the “Come and Try Cross Country Skiing�.’ ‘This year, the Kosciuszko Cross Country Ski School will have a strong contingent of instructors available for the Come and Try Cross Country Ski Day so pick up some skis, boots and poles from any of the local hire outlets in Cooma, Berridale, Jindabyne or Perisher and come see us at the shelter.’

Cats big improvement against Swans The Cooma Cats have rediscovered their self-belief with a vastly improved performance against the undefeated AFL Canberra (Div 4) competition leaders the Goulburn Swans in Canberra on the weekend. After their 22 goal thrashing last week in the first round of their back-to-back games against Goulburn, the Cats bounced back on Saturday to go down to the Swans 13-684 to 3-6-24. “The boys won back a lot of respect and pride with their performance this weekend,” Cooma Cats’ Club President Dave Paterson said after the game. “Our two previous games had really knocked the wind out of our sails, so to hold Goulburn to half of their score from last week was a great effort. “Full credit must go to our coach, Damien Asanovski, for the way he prepared and played the team on the field – he managed the one-on-one match ups perfectly,” Dave said. Coach Asanovski gave the Cats three challenges for the game: restrict the Swans to less than they scored last week, score more points than they (the Cats) did last week and complete 50 tackles. “When you think the Swans gave us a 150 point football lesson last week, it was great to see the boys take on Azzo’s challenge and come off the ground with a renewed sense of pride and purpose as we enter the second half of the season,” Dave said. The Cats let Goulburn know early in the first quarter that this week’s effort was going to be vastly different to the last encounter. The Cats came out full of running and determination, giving a great demonstration of hard tackling and desire. Led by Mal Paterson across the centre, Mick Johnston on the wing and text-book performance by Mal Green at centrehalf-back, the Cats showed real fight against a Swans side vastly superior in technical skills and fitness. “You can only admire the Swans for their style of play and standard of skills – they really are a good side,” Dave said. The Swans again went for the wings on their way forward, but unlike the previous week, the Cats matched a number of the key Swans’ players to nullify their impact. Corey Tucker led the way for the Cats with his performance which all but took his highly skillful opponent out of the game by half time. It was a great performance by a rapidly improving first year player. And full forward Tony Fleming presented himself as a key target for the Cats when they managed to move into attack.

“Tony did exactly what we need him to do today – present himself as a strong option up forward which he did with a number of strong, contested marks and two goals,” Dave said. Tony Fleming was well supported by Rob Brown across centrehalf-forward, while down in the backline the ever reliable Jimmy Russell put in yet The Cooma Cats and Snowy SuperCats at training this week under the new lights at Snowy Oval. another great effort, being well supported by So while the Cats may have gone down again, the very fact Rob Stapleton in his (probable) last match for the Cats and they managed to turn in a much improved performance after Heath McCrae. the horrors of the past few weeks augers well for the club.

SuperCats continue winning form in Jindabyne The Snowy SuperCats Under 14 AFL side has christened their new home ground in Jindabyne with a good win over Ainslie on Saturday. Playing their first home game at the new home of AFL in the Snowy Mountains - the Jindabyne Station Resort Oval – the SuperCats ran out winners over a determined Ainslie 8-856 to 4-2-26 Coach Marty Currie said he was again impressed with how all the SuperCats’ players worked for each other and played as a team. The game, played in the coldest conditions yet encountered this winter, was evenly poised for the first three quarters with neither side managing to get a break on the other. Brad Dunston, John Hukins and Jake Clarke really stood out for the SuperCats in the first quarter, providing a solid defence against the Ainslie attack. The second quarter was again a tough and even one, with neither side getting the upper hand. The SuperCats managed three goals, with Ainslie staying in touch with two of their

own. In the third quarter, both sides were determined to make a break on their opponents and some good football was played to the delight of the crowd. Brandon Williams, John Hukins and Kyle Tucker each kicked a goal for the SuperCats, while Ainslie kept on the pressure and successfully stopped the SuperCats from booting several more. The SuperCats went into the last quarter with a one goal lead, but at around the 5 minute mark the boys stepped up a gear to take control of the game and start kicking away to a well deserved win. Coach Curry said the SuperCats seemed a little slow at the start of the game, but showed good strength of character to buckle down when they needed to, work as a team, and take control of the match when it counted. A good local crowd from Jindabyne supported the SuperCats, who have a sizeable number of players from Jindabyne and Berridale in the team.

The SuperCats are back up at the Station Resort Oval next week, presenting another great opportunity for the people in the Jindabyne area to get on out and see top class junior AFL football. Best players on the day for the Snowy SuperCats were Corey Stockton in the backline, Toby Walton who continued to dominate in the centre against a bigger opponent, and Jindabyne’s own John Hukins who led by example all day. The SuperCats meet Gungahlin Jets in their next game at the Station Resort Oval at Jindabyne next Saturday. The game starts at 10:45 and promises to be another great exhibition of junior AFL footy. The SuperCats encourage anyone in Jindabyne and the region who are interested in AFL and junior sport generally to get along to the Station Resort Oval and see the team in action. The Snowy SuperCats train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Snowy Oval and everyone is welcome to come down and get involved in the club.

Snowy Mountains District wins again Molly Siddle, winner of the Singles bowls event held by the Snowy Mountains District Women’s Bowling Association, travelled to Merimbula to compete in the Group Final and was drawn against Pam Reynolds from the Bega Imlay Women’s Bowling Association. The condition of the greens differs tremendously between the coast and the Snowy Mountains, and initially Molly found the bowls ran much faster than what she was used to. It took a few ends before Molly was able to settle down and get used to the green and both players then drew level on 10 all. It continued a very close game with each player gaining points on alternate

ends and by the end of the 20th end they were once again level on 20 all. However, Molly then seemed to really excel and won five of the next six ends, and finally won the match with a result of 31 – 21. The spectators, who had travelled from the Snowy Mountains were rapturous with this result, as it now means that they have three teams going forward to compete in the State Finals to be held at Tuncurry in September, having already won the Fours and Triples and now able to add the Singles to their successes as well. We wish all the players good luck in September when they will be up against some very strong competition from all over New South Wales.

Vikings bulldoze Red Devils

Cooma scored a couple of tries in the first half of the back of some barn storming runs from Craig Wilock. He scored the first himself after breaking three or four tackles near the half way line then sprinting away to score near the posts. The second try was a near repeat of the first with Craig beating off three or four tackles near half way. Only the cover defence was a little better

this time, and he had to pass it onto Nester Schouten to score the try. Great to watch. Tuggeranong picked it up a gear in the second half scoring 20 unanswered points. However it is only a matter of time until the reggies start to win a few games. They’re looking good. Three points and Players Player to Craig Willock, two points to the home sick

Tom Moxon, one point to Neil “Nester” Schouten. The Reggies also welcomed the return of Mike Carroll, back from two years of push biking through the Americas, and Tom Moxon back from a week at a new job up at Orange. Pictured, Craig Willock.

Cooma Red Devils ran into two brick walls at Rotary Oval last Saturday, as the Vikings showed what a big players’ pool and resources can produce. On a typically miserable day for rugby, the Red Devils ran on after seeing reserve grade fade in the second half of their match. Someone once said. ‘life was never meant to be easy’ and that was certainly the case for the Red Devils on Saturday. Despite some good beginnings, Cooma was unable to cross the line. They were also unable to stop a couple of the Vikings’ racehorses who would not have been out of place against Ireland on Saturday night. However, the Red Devils did not let up, eventually scoring a penalty close to halftime. Unfortunately, that was to be the only score the Red Devils recorded, despite bustling runs from Ryan Morgan and Leighton Bates and glimmers of hope from Ben Schouten. Curtis Watkins never stopped trying all game. Some good line-outs by the Red Devils also held promise, but strong Vikings defence nullified the efforts. In the end, Vikings were just too strong on the day and demonstrated why they are leading the competition, winning 40-3. Cooma will need a much-improved showing against Uni-Norths in a fortnight’s time. The club has a bye this Saturday. Points this week: three Curtis Watkins, two Jim Nichols, one Ryan Morgan and Matt Gibbs. Player’s player Jim Nichols. Reserve grade Last Saturday Cooma rugby club’s second grade faced up to competition leaders Tuggeranong Vikings. It was a cold and bleak afternoon on Rotary oval with the score line reflecting the weather, the Reggies going down 53-14.
