FROM THE DESK OF THE CEO

Welcome to the latest edition of Wests magazine, and the first of what promises to be a very exciting year for everyone connected with The Wests Group. It’ll be a great start to the year for one of you, too, as one of our members or guests will soon be driving around in a brand new Holden Astra, while three other lucky people will win a wonderful cruise for two. Simply purchase a ticket at any Wests club for a chance to win. You’ll find details on page 14. Elsewhere in this issue, we take a sneak peek at the extensive work that’s been going on at Wests City. The new Kingstown Bar is a focus of the new-look club, which has been completely renovated and now offers a fantastic array of food – including freshly made pizzas from a brand new pizza oven – and experiences for all members and guests. Pay the club a visit and see for yourself – if you haven’t visited for a while you’ll be very pleasantly surprised. We have an enormous amount of activity happening in all of our clubs over the next few months, with Easter and Mother’s Day among the key dates on the horizon. Check out our Easter food offer on page 10, and get ideas for Mother’s Day experiences on page 18.

Mr Philip Gardner Chief Executive Officer

of the new season next month, with adult reserve seat season memberships available from $150. This works out at $12.50 per game, which is incredible value and a significant saving on walk-up prices. The big news at the end of last year was the announcement of a $10m grant from the NSW Government for a Rugby League Centre of Excellence. The Centre of Excellence was a core part of our vision for not only the Knights but the whole community, and The Wests Group committed to match the grant from the Government. The Centre of Excellence will provide state-of-theart facilities for the Knights as well as grassroots footballers, and will be the catalyst for further development of the Broadmeadow sports precinct, which the wider community will benefit from. This magazine is designed to give you a window into what’s going on across all of our venues, but of course more goes on than we could possibly fit in here each edition. Our new website, www.westsnewcastle.com.au was launched towards the end of last year, and includes the very latest information about events and offers here at Wests, as well as your regular club activities.

Of course, a lot of the talk around The Wests Group has been of the Newcastle Knights. The acquisition was officially ratified on 1 November, and we welcome all connected with the Knights into the Wests family. To get yourself in the mood for the new season, turn to page 16, where you can relive some of the best Knights moments in the club’s history. And you can be there to witness history yourself from the start

ELAINE COMES UP TRUMPS! Congratulations to Elaine Randall, who was the winner of our $20k prize draw for members who either joined KNIGHTS

WESTS PIMP KNIGHTS FAN GEOFF’S RIDE Knights coach Nathan Brown surprised Knights fan Geoff by personally delivering his newlypainted Knights-themed scooter to his front door. Geoff, who’s known to many around the country as the Knights fan who paints his face for every home game, had visited Wests shortly after the deal with the Knights was announced to purchase a Wests flag to put on his scooter to acknowledge the new era. The team at Wests thought we could do one better, and offered to have his scooter repainted in Knights colours – inclusive of a Wests logo to promote the new partnership. The team at Semits Smash Repairs, Hamilton, did a superb job with the paintwork, and Geoff was delighted when Nathan Brown and Wests’ Tony Koltovski, who led the project for Wests, delivered the scooter back to his front door.

The new Kingstown Bar at Wests City tips its hat to the heritage of Newcastle, and is just one of many new developments that form part of a complete renovation of the venue.

Named after Governor King, the King’s Town convict settlement was established around the mouth of the Hunter River in 1801. The settlement evolved into Kingstown, and then Newcastle, after the famous coal mining city in north east England.

8 westsnewcastle.com.au

Our new Kingstown Bar at the newly-revamped Wests City, on the corner of Union Street and King Street, is a nod to the heritage of our wonderful city, and we hope it becomes a firm fixture for the people of our region. Featuring copper pipes and large leather chairs,

the bar has big screens perfect for watching live sport, and a fabulous array of food and beverages. The renovation of the club also features a brand new dining area with a huge pizza oven for made-to-order pizzas, a new-look foyer and reception

area, while a top-to-toe fit out marks the venue out to be one of the city’s best, complementing the facilities available upstairs at NEX. If you’ve not paid Wests City a visit recently, drop in. You’ll be very pleasantly surprised.

THE STORY OF THE NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS IS FULL OF ‘I WAS THERE’ MOMENTS. GET READY FOR THE NEW SEASON BY RELIVING SOME OF THE GREATEST HOME GAME HIGHLIGHTS FROM YEARS GONE BY.

It was a definite treat for Knights fans – an absolute drubbing of the South

KNIGHTS RECORD BREAKING WIN OVER SOUTHS 1999

Sydney Rabbitohs in a match the Bunnies would rather forget. A 60-0 thrashing was the red and blue’s biggest victory in the history of the club. Mark Hughes bagged himself a hat-trick while Andrew Johns and Robbie O’Davis crossed over for doubles. True to form, Johns was also magnificent with the boot, as he kicked an impressive eight from eight.

A tricky customer who scored some absolute pearlers through his career, Timana Tahu broke the record for the most tries ever scored for the Knights, 82 tries in 97 games. One four-pointer in particular will forever be remembered, against the Parramatta Eels. The speedy winger intercepted the ball 60 metres out and sprinted all the way to the

TIMANA TAHU’S SLAM DUNK TRY 2001

try line. But, it wasn’t just his magnificent try that stood out, he also slam-dunked the ball over the goal post to the delight of the crowd.

At the time Scott Dureau may have been the unlikely alternative to Kurt Gidley

SCOTT DUREAU SNAGS GOLDEN POINT WIN 2008

to take the one-pointer for the Knights against Manly, but the young rookie halfback stepped up to prove he was a cool customer under pressure. The 21-year-old produced a field goal in extra time to drive the Knights to a thrilling 13-12 victory over their arch rivals. Safe to say that field goal was undoubtedly one of Dureau’s career highlights and one he won’t forget.

The Knights couldn’t let Danny Buderus retire without making at least one conversion for his entire career. The Australia and NSW Origin representative got the chance to boot his way to glory in his last home game for the Knights against the Parramatta Eels. While he may not have been known for his kicking prowess, Buderus beautifully struck the ball through the middle of the posts. A superb

High Tea with Mia WE INVITE YOU TO BE INSPIRED BY BOLD PERSONALITIES, SAVVY OPINION AND DELIGHTFUL FOOD AND DRINK AT THE WESTS ANNUAL HIGH TEA EVENT.

Our special guest this year is Mia Freedman; the co-founder and creative director of the Mamamia Women’s Media Company, the thriving, multi-media business that she started as a blog in her lounge room.

The event will be hosted by NBN’s Natasha Beyersdorf who will delve into Mia’s reality during a 45 minute Q & A session to speak about her imperfectly balanced life as one of Australia’s Most Influential Women as named by the Australian Financial Review.

Guests will be treated to an afternoon of culinary splendour, while enjoying a stunning line-up of fashions presented by Charlestown Square’s Natalie Baker. Last year’s event was sold out, so be sure to book your place.
