Bob Smith.

Grove mourns loss of two great characters TRIBUTES have flowed in at the news that Bob Smith, captain of Ocean Grove Fire Brigade, died in hospital on Saturday morning. The brigade chief for 16 years, Bob was taken ill last month and slipped into a coma on Wednesday. Sadly last week also saw the passing of Carl Verbeek, a hardworking stalwart at Club Grove and the RSL. Tributes pages 3 and 7.


Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke braved a wintery Ocean Grove morning to join Darren Cheeseman in announcing that a re-elected Labor Government would chip in $2million towards the Shell Reserve Sports Precinct plan, much to the delight of campaigning councillor Jan Farrell and representatives from the town’s sports clubs.


Town to get Shell Res’ cash whoever wins

Liberal opposition candidate Sarah Henderson was joined by shadow sports minister Steven Ciobo for a tour of Shell Road and the existing football, soccer and netball facilities. They have since matched the Labor funding commitment.

Watch winding up IT should have been the final meeting of district GLG 57 but the question of where to distribute about $70 in funds prompted a stay of execution just one more week. On August 18 Collendina Neighbourhood Watch will wind up after 17 years. “The weather might be a bit warmer by then,” said Sylvia Kerger who has penned their well supported newsletter throughout those years. Sylvia’s husband John too has been chairman for 15. The couple are saddened that the district is having to close. “We just can’t get the attendance,” said Sylvia. They point to a recent decision by the police hierarchy not to encourage police attendance at the meetings. Police cite staff shortages and say attendance is optional – but only if useful. Police are adamant that Neighbourhood Watch will play a part in future policing, but not in its current form, preferring instead to

redraw the boundaries in line with council borders. That’s not the way the stalwarts of what used to be called Area K61 see it. They are about to abandon what they’ve worked tirelessly to build up, simply because they have been starved of police input. Recalling a meeting at Surfside back in 1993, John said: “The police organised the first meeting. Sylvia was the first to put her hand up at that meeting. We have enjoyed it. “But now we are not getting any information from the police and it’s a waste of time.” Sylvia said that both the meetings and the newsletters rely on the police input. Up until a few months ago the newsletter, which runs to eight sides, listed all the crimes that happened in their district. Police would also visit to give a run down on happenings and locals got the chance to quiz them on local issues. “We were getting monthly crimes, street by street. That stopped about four months ago.

“People were coming to our meetings to ask police questions.” Over time Collendina district has grown to include Kingston, The Parks and Surfside. From four Neighbourhood Watch groups in Ocean Grove there will only be two after August. The River district has not been active for some time. As well as the six people at the July meeting another 30 walkers voluntarily deliver Sylvia’s newsletters – including her sometimes saucy jokes – to some 2,750 homes. Fellow member Carolyn Bailey, has been a member for about seven years, praised the role that John and Sylvia have played. “I just think it’s a real shame. I think a lot of people are going to miss the newsletter. I cannot find the words to express how appreciative we are for all the years they hve done,” said Coral Berry. “We’ll have a muck up night,” joked Sylvia. “That will make them notice us.”

LOCAL woman Kate Engler (pictured above) joined Olympian, Cathy Freeman and 19 other prominent Australian women to explore the question: What does it mean to be a modern woman in 2010? The question was posed by the editors of the inaugural Modern Women’s Anthology 2010 which was launched late last month by Therese Rein. Wendy Harmer was the MC. The Anthology contains rich stories about women overcoming adversity in some cases, strengthening bonds and learning to juggle the many responsibilities in today’s busy, busy world. “We felt it fitting to introduce this wonderful book to local residents and to raise the profile of both anxiety and depression during Anxiety Week,” explained Stacey Moore, owner of Bookgrove in Ocean Grove. “And when Kate said she was wiling to support us, we simply had to create an evening for people to come together to hear stories about how others may have struggled and overcome anxiety and depression in their own lives. “It is great to see all the proceeds going to The Black Dog Institute. They do such wonderful work in supporting those who struggle with mental illness.” Stacey said. The intimate evening is being held on Thursday August 5th at 7.30pm at Bookgrove in The Terrace. A gold coin donation towards The Black Dog Institute is appreciated.

Club mourns ‘courageous’ Carl’s passing OCEAN Grove is mourning the loss of bowling club and RSL stalwart Carl Verbeek who passed away on Friday night at St John of God Hospital after a courageous battle against cancer. Carl leaves his wife Rosemary, daughter Paula and son Rick and four grandchildren James, Jack, Harry and Bradley. Speaking on behalf of the family on Sunday, Paula said: “He will be sadly missed by his family and we appreciate his courage and determination and strength to battle for the last 12 months.” Carl emigrated to Australia from Holland in 1961 and was a project manager for Transfield Construction before retiring. He had lived in Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove for 23

years and was on the board of management at Club Grove as well as playing an active part in the local RSL. For about eight or ten years he drove the Jeep in the ANZAC Day parade. Most people that knew Carl would encounter him busying around the bowls club, carrying or organising something. He has also played a major part in the ongoing development at Club Grove. Mike Lewis, general manager of Club Grove, said: “He was a great clubman. He was hands on but also made a fantastic contributor at board level as well. “We developed a friendship over the three years that probably some people at the club would explain as the ‘odd fellows’. We agreed to disagree but we

got on very well and he will be sadly missed. “The club was very lucky to have a person like Carl who has dedicated many years to making sure that the club became as successful as it was. “I know when I first came to the club he was on the top of the

list for security and maintenance call outs, which was unheard of, a board member being the first person called out. Absolutely unheard of. “I would have loved for him to have seen the finished redevelopment, because he put his heart and soul into that. “He will be sadly missed around the place. David Gilroy, secretary of Ocean Grove RSL, said: “He was a delightful member, a hardworking member of the RSL, and a good interface between the RSL and Club Grove. We will sorely miss him.” A service will be held at the Wave in Ocean Grove today (Wednesday July 28) from 11am. Everyone will be invited back to Club Grove at 12noon.

Pollies come good MP Darren Cheeseman was accompanied by former prime minister Bob Hawke when he stood in a drizzly Shell Road car park to announce that a re-elected Gillard Labor Government would provide $2 million towards Ocean Grove’s long fought sports precinct. Just a week earlier and Cheeseman’s August 21st opposition candidate Sarah Henderson had stood in the same place to show shadow sports minister Steven Ciobo why the town so desparately needed decent facilities. Henderson was able to match Cheeseman’s pledge later the same day. The news means that Ocean Grove is roughly one quarter of the way towards getting the total funding for the project which goes beyond Shell Road. However, with federal funding now secure whoever gets elected, the onus will now be on the state candidates to pledge the same later this year. The upgraded Shell Road sports precinct will include a pavilion which incorporates change rooms, community meeting space and social facilities. “This upgraded precinct will mean that residents will

have more opportunities for recreation in our local area. This will be a fantastic resource for the local community,” Mr Cheeseman said. “I look forward to seeing the Ocean Grove Community and Sports Precinct become a reality,” Mr Cheeseman concluded. On matching the funding Sarah Henderson said: “Mr Ciobo was taken aback by the very poor standard of facilities that currently exist. “He inspected the plans and played a big role in delivering Bob Hawke chatted with Grove netballers while on his visit., this funding commitment on behalf of the Coalition,” Ms this commitment.” Henderson said.

I HAVE lived in Ocean Grove for ten years, since returning to my childhood home in 2000. Our family lived in Geelong until I was eleven but we moved to farming land at the rear of Ocean Grove, on what was then called Shell Road. Dad was a POW in Germany in WW11, having been captured on Crete by the invading German army. This led to him really wanting a sense of freedom he couldn’t find living in the City. He became an early commuter into Geelong for work but always loved returning to the farm. It was really my mother who led us to Ocean Grove. Her parents built a house near the surf beach in the early 1930’s and she spent many holidays there. She loved the surf and horse riding through the region. She particularly loved the bushy area at the back of the village. Years later, when Dad was keen to move out of town, Mum wrote to the aging Cuthbertson sisters asking whether they would be interested in selling any of their overgrown farm on Shell Road. The farm was named “Goandra”, after a high country sheep grazing lease in the Snowy Mountains, near Kiandra, where Dad loved to go trout fishing. The actual aboriginal name is Gooandra, the place of running water, not so true since the drought has hit! Areas of the farm had been cleared over the years, but most was bush. The steep valley was planted to apples and pear trees, but you could see the terracing that was done in the 1880’s for grape vines. There were other apple orchards but the majority was bush and was cleared to make way for pasture and cattle. One May night the windrows of timber were lit, providing a spectacular scene, with some drama when the wind changed and the edges caught into what became the Ocean Grove Nature Reserve. Dad spent a furious hour shinning up trees over the fence stopping the fire advancing! Gradually the farm was stocked with Aberdeen Angus and subsequently Limousin cattle. We had a great succession of employees on the farm. Firstly, Wally Kirspu, a Latvian, who came to Australia after the war. He’d been forced into the German Army and had interesting tales of his experiences. He helped plant the orchards, clear paddocks of

Tony Reilly

roots, fenced and looked after the small cattle herd. He was followed briefly by Roy Storey and then Ken Davis, who was here for over 15 years. Ken really got the farm into shape. Andrew Cross was the last “manager”, being here for 10 years until inflation and costs just made it too uneconomical to continue. Now we just fatten cattle or sheep and crop all the areas we can. I continued going to school in Geelong, matriculating in 1967, before heading to Monash University to complete Chemical Engineering. Ocean Grove was always a magical area. We had wonderful teenage years, with plenty of work around the farm and great times exploring the area on our bikes. We found mushrooms by the box load (earning ten pounds on some weekends!), rode horses through the bush, caught rabbits, picked up potatoes, went to the beach, rode bikes over to Barwon Heads to see the Couta boats come in to the Fish Cooperative, explored the Bluff and its caves, played golf and enjoyed three pence of chips at the Fish and Chip shop. There was never an issue of safety. Just get home before dark. What freedom!

The village of Ocean Grove was tiny, with only Skinners store, the bakery opposite, Menzies Haberdashery, a barbers shop and Doctors surgery. I initially worked in the plastics and food industries as a Chemical Engineer and Manager, in Melbourne, Geelong and Corowa, before we came back to the Bellarine Peninsula. Our children both love the region. One is teaching down near Warrnambool and the other works for a local builder as a carpenter. There are so many things to fill in your spare time here! We walk, play golf, ride road and mountain bikes, surf, sail a laser on the river. We also are keen bushwalkers, cross country and downhill skiers, being members of a club up at Mt Hotham. We renovated our house last year and are enjoying being warm this winter, compliments of proper insulation and a wood heater. We have just finished the landscaping and are watching lots of indigenous plants from Echidna nursery, take hold. With a couple of birdbaths, we just love watching the rosellas, magpies, butcher birds, mudlarks, noisy miners and others come for a drink. Fantastic early morning calls from the birds, too.

My day usually starts with a run around the farm, the Blue Waters Lake or on the beach. I love breakfast with the Age and then head out for the day. Ocean Grove has changed but it actually is a more rounded place to live. All those activities available at the Neighbourhood Centre can only happen with population growth. Pity the colour of the building can’t be changed! Lots of other activities are available, too. My wife, Sue, sings with a community group on Tuesdays, which she really loves. And we are blessed with good coffee and a bookshop! I hope the Terrace can maintain its “strip shopping” feel. Thank goodness the power poles are gone! If I had to live somewhere else, Byron Bay would be high on the list. However, I’d miss too many Victorian things, so the occasional trip will have to do. If I were Mayor, one thing I would ensure always stays on the Budget, is funding for Mozzie Control. I think our local hero is Dave Renton and his gang. They have learnt how to attack the mosquito larvae before they hatch. This last summer was wet but the mozzies were really in control after August, thanks to Dave.

furniture - homewares - giftware Builders laid Club Grove’s new concrete floor last week. About 80 of the 2-tonne slabs were carefully lowered into place.

CLUB Grove’s million dollar refurbishment is progressing full steam ahead. General Manager Michael Lewis said that the new look bowling club is on schedule and due to open the first week of December. “We are on time and on budget, we are well advanced into stage one,” he said. Stage one includes extending the building into the existing car park where a new 140 seat restaurant, bar and children’s room will be located. Temporary internal refur-bishment has also begun and is due to be completed

in the next eight to 12 weeks. The $5 million renovation will also provide the town’s first and only reception centre. “Our aim is to be the premier club in Victoria and recognisable across Australia,” Michael said. Assistant General Manager Karen Foley said that the new look Club Grove is about retaining its history which spreads over 54 years. “It’s about creating a new history but maintaining the old

history and cherishing it,” she said. The club will have the capacity to enhance its commitment to local community groups like the local RSL who currently use the space for their meetings. Michael said that the aim of the upgrade is to allow community ownership of the club. “Already community groups use our bus and our meeting rooms for free. This will enable us to do more of that,” Karen said. The club will also take advantage of technology to uniquely exhibit the bowling club’s honour

boards on digital displays. “So you’re still preserving all the history but displaying it in a new way,” Karen said. Michael said that while the attention is on the building works at the moment, he wants people to look ahead to the opportunities Club Grove will provide its members and the community when complete. “We know that we can spend $60million on the bricks and mortar but at the end of the day it’s going to be our people and the level of service they supply that will step us apart from the rest,” said Michael.

Town loses a friend in Bob

Healing Massage

THE sight of flags flying at half mast on Ocean Grove Fire Station signaled the news that many in the community had feared would be coming. Captain Bob Smith, 62, passed away in the caring hands of staff at Geelong Hospital on Saturday morning, just months after being diagnosed with an aggressive and inoperable brain tumor. Acting captain John Wynn said that the news was broken when a general pager message was sent out to all staff flagging a meeting. The message needed no explanation. “From my perspective I think Ocean Grove as a community was very fortunate that Bob chose to live in our town and become an integral part of our community for the last 20 years of his life,’ said John. “And whilst his primary involvement was the CFA and the most profound part of his community involvement was the CFA, he equally was involved with things like Rotary and the Ocean Grove Cup as a judge. “He was involved with most fundraisers, he was a regular person at the football, and he followed the local football team. He was well known at the bowling club and the golf club. “And just from a purely Ocean Grove point of view he was a larger than life character in the town. And I use character in the most complimentary way.” But Bob’s influence wasn’t just limited to this community. It was

Bob Smith, who passed away at the weekend.

spread throughout the Bellarine Peninsula with his involvement as a Group Officer with the fire brigade and as Group Training Officer for the last three or four years. He worked out of Geelong for the CFA and his area covered right down to Port Campbell. In his career with the CFA he worked and served as a volunteer in Grovedale, Ballarat, Mildura and Bendigo. Bob had risen through the ranks of the volunteers with his training and gained a lot of experience in incident control management. John said that Bob brought this valuable experience back to the brigade. In his 16 years as Ocean Grove captain he had overseen the professionalisation of the brigade. As a result of the environment Bob engendered, a number of

our Grove members have also assumed regional and district appointments. “He was a very generous person with his time,’ said John. “He also had a very strict disciplinarian side. But he was also able to relate to 17 year olds as a friend, a real friend. He obviously looked on the CFA as a family to him.” John said that the brigade extended its condolences to Bob’s brother Bruce and his family. Bruce is also a captain at a rural brigade near Ballarat. Earlier this year Bob was awarded the Australian Fire Service Medal (AFSM) as part of the Australia Day honours in recognition of his 45-plus years of service to paid and voluntary fire service . This very rare award is the highest in the fire service. Shortly after receiving the award Bob told the Ocean Grove Voice: “I was pretty humbled. And I’ll be honest when I received the letter asking me if I would accept it I thought very hard about it and then accepted it. And then after I accepted it I thought ‘am I accepting it for the right reasons?’ But I think it was explained to me that it’s more than me, it’s about the people that work here, it’s about the organisation, the award makes you feel good about that.” John said: “The fact that he received it is recognition of his contribution to the community through CFA and also a source of very great personal pride that he accepted it and his fellow brigade

members shared in that pride.” Bob was also a very valued member of Ocean Grove Rotary. Current Rotary president Noel Emselle said: “He will certainly be a loss to us. He was always reliable and active in some of the projects that we undertook. “Sergeant in Arms last year and was still on the team. He was always good for a laugh and used to come up with some entertaining activities as a sergeant. “A big loss, especially when taken so young.” Cllr Jan Farrell said: “Bob was a very well respected identity in the community and will be sorely lost.” A funeral date had not been set at the time of going to press. However, Ocean Grove Fire Brigade will be updating its website: see www.oceangrovecfa.

Whether it was a Good Friday Appeal or Movember, as above where he lost his ‘mo’, Bob always got involved. Bob was well known as one of the Santas on the brigades Christmas run.

He said it would take pride of place inside the members area Bill Huggins with Sarah Henderson, Senator Michael Ronaldson and representatives from Ocean Grove when Club Grove’s refurbishments are RSL sub-branch and Club Grove. complete.

Visiting speaker GEELONG midwife Patrice Hall re-visited the Ocean Grove Uniting Church Hall recently to talk about the work she has been involved with in East Timor. She explained the main purpose of the work is to empower people to support themselves. Volunteers at the church have played their part in the work, including raising money for new born baby scales.

‘ClubUSGrove’ L A U S U S A S S E N I B Dynamic Duo Dynamic driving duo Hillie and Julie have jumped at the chance to take on the ‘Club Grove’ customer shuttle bus duties. The lifelong friends, who have shared the Star of the Sea school bus run for the past 16 years, say they are thrilled to be taking over the job. Both originally Dutch settlers, the pair first met at the old Star of the Sea Catholic Church in the Terrace. There they joined a choir (which they both still sing in today) and the friendship was founded. Hillie said she accepted the position for the fun social aspect and because it is such a great free service for locals. “The other night when we were taking people home they started singing Scottish songs, so you just sing along with them.” “I think the bus is fantastic. It means people can go and have a night out and not have to worry; it’s a service that takes them from door to door.” “It’s especially good for the elderly. We wait while they go inside, we don’t just drop them in the driveway and we often shine the headlights on their house so they can get in safely.” Hillie said the pair had developed a great job sharing relationship which means each can totally rely on the other. She said they were always ready to help each other and fill in for each other with a friendship going back a long way – 50 years. The 12 seater bus travels throughout Ocean Grove, Collendina, Barwon Heads and Wallington on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. “It’s not just for drinkers,” said Hillie. “Last Friday we picked up two families from Barwon Heads; the parents got to relax and the kids had fun travelling on the bus.” Julie added “Club Grove really look after the clientele here, very much so”.

Locked away from life

Caged for a cause: St Ignatiius students raising awareness about the isolation felt by HIV/AIDS sufferers.

SEVEN students from Saint Ignatius College have caged themselves away to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS, writes Carly Helweg. The year 11 and 12 students spent 24 hours in an outdoor cage on July 14 to highlight how isolated sufferers of the disease can become. They shunned technology, had limited clothing and bedding and were only allowed to consume barley sugar and water. School captain, Bridgett Malone, 17 said that cold and rain were the hardest parts for them to endure overnight. “Being cold and trying to rug up, it just makes it that bit harder,� she said. “We could only have four bathroom breaks for the entire time as well.� Ellenor Colenso, 18 said they were inspired by the similar cages that Saint Josephs College students have participated in annually over the last five

years. The Social Justice Leader and participant in the Catholic Leaders of Geelong Schools (CLOGS) also explained that in their cage they were able to experience the feelings of isolation and helplessness. “It’s about the psychological impact,� she said. “In third world countries there is a lack of education about AIDS and people don’t understand that it is only spread via body fluids or blood and so they isolate those who have it.� “Sometimes they can suffer from depression and there is a lack of a healthy state of mind.� During school hours, the students were able to interact with classes who came to visit and inform them on the issues. Bridget Henry, 17 explained one of the most shocking truths of the disease, the fact that every hour 31 children die of

AIDS. “So 744 children have died the whole time we have been in this cage, that’s almost our whole school,� she said. Although the students were keen to undertake

the 24 hour challenge, with two hours to go they were all looking forward to having something to eat. “The first thing we want to do is eat, we’re all going to get pizza,� they said.

Call for teen mentors in Grove ONE hour a week could help build self-esteem in a young person in a way that could radically help them in future life. Bellarine Secondary College Ocean Grove campus is appealing for adult mentors who can commit to one hour a week for the next four months to help mentor a student aged between

12 and 14. The school has previously run the mentoring program with the Red Cross but has now launched its own program to cater for students at the 438-strong campus. Student wellbeing and student development coordinator Judith Mitchell said the essence is to

match males and males and females and females. “They work one-on-one to give them a bit of a boost. It’s different for every individual. “We are really looking for grandparents and retirees who can give 45-60 minutes a week. “So long as they are prepared to make a commitment. It is so very

important that they can rely on these adults.� Judith said that all mentors would be given two nights of training. The mentoring will take place at the school until December. For details contact Judith on 5255 0042 or Becky on 5253 2099.

Bridging the gap

Geniuses: set to don denim for Jeans for Genes Day are staff from Strapper, Westpac, Gloria Jeans and Bellarine Veterinary Practice.

THE $40 million Barwon Heads Bridge project is now well advanced on the next stage, putting in foundations for the new road bridge under the old one. Above groud Wayne Smith’s 120-tonne caterpillar crawler trudges along the

temporary platform. Below the surface 3m piles are being bored into the riverbed – only evident when the muddy drill bits are raised and rattled free of clay. The bridge is scheduled to be completed at the end of the year.


Denim for Genes Day THE Ocean Grove community is dusting off their Bootlegs and digging out their Bellbottoms to support Jeans for Genes day. On August 6 people are encouraged to wear their denims to school or work to raise money for the Children’s Medical Research Institute. The fundraiser is in its sixteenth year and raises

money to help research into children’s genetic disorders. People are encouraged to donate or buy a badge and then wear their jeans on Friday August 6. Gloria Jeans Ocean Grove owner Lisa Porter said that a percentage of the day’s takings would go towards the fundraiser. “Gloria Jeans is one of the biggest supporters

of Jeans for Genes day,” she said.The coffee store is also one of the places to purchase Jeans for Genes merchandise. “We’ve had a good response from people so far, most of the pens are gone and the badges as well.” Contact the Voice if your business is going denim for the day: news@oceangrovevoice. com.

Neighbourhood Watch Ocean Grove Areas 39/43 Once again we would like to sincerely thank Ocean Grove Voice for donating and publishing our Newsletter for Areas 39/43. Next Meeting The next get together will be held on Monday, 13th September, 2010, (please note our normal meeting has been held over 1 month) at the Uniting Church Hall, Eggleston Street, Ocean Grove, at 7.30 p.m. All welcome. Supper is supplied by the Rolling Pin Pie and Cake Shop. Past Members Due to the fact that some Areas in Ocean Grove are no longer operating, we offer an invitation to all past volunteers (or indeed anyone interested) to come along to our meeting and become an active volunteer in this worthwhile organisation. We meet the 2nd Monday of each alternative month and the details of our meeting date, etc. are listed above. If you are interesting in coming along, please phone Bill on 52 555 856 or Wally on 52 555 494 Neighbourhood Watch Neighbourhood Watch, throughout Victoria, is undergoing vast changes at the moment and we would like to keep at least one area in Ocean Grove active until it is decided by Head Office what the final outcome will be. Crime Statistics The following crime trend information for the Bellarine

response area cover the period 1st July, 2009 to 30th June, 2010. 1.7.09 – 30.6.10 Theft from shop: 27 Theft of bicycle: 28 Behaviour in public: 49 1.7.09 – 30.6.09 Theft from shop: 11 Theft of bicycle: 21 Behaviour in public: 11 Percentage increase Theft from shop +145% Theft of bicycle +33% Behaviour in public +345% Road Toll With the winter months well and truly with us, we ask that you be particularly vigilant re bad driving habits. Special attention must be paid to hoons, drink driving and speed. Learner Drivers While these drivers complete their compulsory 120 hours, we ask that a responsible and safe driver be appointed as their tutor. If possible, some hours with a registered tutor (especially in the early stages) is essential. Don’t forget – bad driving habits are very easily passed on. Maintaining property Now that autumn is well and truly over and the large trees have finished shedding their leaves, remember to clear all the gutters on your house to ensure clear drainage of the rains (thank goodness at last we are actually receiving some rain). Rake up all fallen leaves and use as contribution to your compost heap for use in the spring months or put into your green waste if you do

not have a compost heap or bin, making sure that any diseased leaves are put in the bin. Bicycle Riders Remember is it very difficult for drivers to see you in the winter months. Make sure that you wear bright colours and have lights fitted to the back of your jackets and/ or helmets. If riding with friends make sure that you keep to the 2 abreast rule, or even down to 1 rider when the road is narrow. Smoke Alarms, etc. Did you remember to change the batteries in your smoke alarm? With the constant use of heaters during this cold weather, it is very important to make sure the alarm is maintained - your families or your own life may depend on this simple action. Another important item to remember is that fire extinguishers need refilling approximately every 2 years and must be done at the local fire station. Thought for the month The Federal election will be held on the 21st August, 2010 and it is compulsory to vote if your name appears on the Electoral Role. Make sure, if you will not be in residence on that day, that you lodge your vote with an Absentee Vote, available from the local Australian Electoral Office, post office or website www., allowing plenty of time to complete this as it takes some time to apply for a ballot paper, fill it in and return it by the due date.

DRUMMIN’ UP FUNDS MUSOS are tuning up for the second annual Ocean Grove MS fundraiser. The Multiple Sclerosis fundraiser is back on at Bardeli on Friday August 13 with the aim of raising funds and awareness for those affected. As with last year the event will start at about 4pm and go through until midnight. Co-organiser Bree-Arne Chamley said the hope is that school students will get involved again early in the event as they did last year. “It was packed last year. Everyone was having a ball. When we had the auction some people were actually bidding against themselves – just for the fun of it. The whole joint was rocking.” As well as Bree-Arne and Lochie, Dave Dorman, Claudia’s Naughty Nana and the Toyboys and Jill Meehan are expected to be confirmed.

Albatross spotting From 'The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1797 At length did cross and Albatross, Thorough the fog it came; As if it had been a Christian soul, We hailed it in God's name. It ate the food it ne'er had eat, And round and round it flew. The ice did split with a thunder-fit; The helmsman steered us through! And a good south wind sprung up behind; The albatross did follow, And every day, for food or play, Came to the mariner's hollow! I was reading on the 'Birdline Victoria' website that Albatrosses had been seen around Portsea and Point Lonsdale. I thought to myself that it would be fantastic to spot an Albatross, and lo and behold I spied this 'Black Browed Albatross' floating in Port Phillip Bay one cold winter's day. I couldn't believe my luck and danced an Albatross spotting dance much to the surprise of nearby strangers and to the embarrassment of my 10 year old daughter! There are several species of Albatross that inhabit the Southern waters of Australia, including the Wandering Albatross and the Shy Albatross,

The Black Browed Albatross.

which are both declining in number, unfortunately, mainly due to driftnet fishing practices. The Black- Browed Albatross is also vulnerable in some areas, but not in Victoria. The Black-browed Albatross is the most common albatross seen in southern Australian waters for most of the year, The Falkland Islands off the coast of South America are home to over 85% of the global population, making them the most important breeding location in the world for this species. Black-browed Albatrosses migrate in winter and spring to as far north as Geraldton on the west coast of Australia, but they are most commonly seen off the south-east coast of the mainland and around Tasmania. The Black-Browed Albatross is the only one of the mollymawks (another name for the smaller black-and-white albatrosses) with a yellow bill. The bill has a

pink tip. The back, upper wings and tail are black. The underwing is white with black margins. The face is white, with a small black brow over a dark eye. The legs and feet are blue-grey to pink. This species is also called the Black-Browed Mollymawk. The Black- Browed Albatross grows to 94 cms in length and weigh 3.5 kgs (similar weight to an average newborn baby). Black-browed Albatrosses fly over the ocean surface, searching for plankton, squid, cuttlefish, crustaceans and fish, and follow ships in the hope of eating food scraps. They settle on the water near fishing boats in anticipation of a feed. The Black-Browed Albatross breeds on many sub-Antarctic islands, including Heard and Macquarie Islands. They generally live for 30 years or more if they can avoid drowning in fishing nets!! They have a strong bond to the colony where

they were born, and birds will generally take the same breeding partner each season. The nest is a solid pile of mud and bird droppings mixed with grass and seaweed and is re-used each year. The nests are made on the top of coastal cliffs and steep slopes up to 300m above sea level. Newly hatched chicks are fed by both parents. Unfortunately for the continuity of the species only one egg is laid and hatched each breeding season. Young birds leave the nest after 120 days of being looked after by the parents, between mid-March and early April. In mythology sailors believe it disastrous to shoot or harm an albatross; in truth, however, sailors regularly killed and ate them,and they were often regarded as the souls of lost sailors. Finally drift net fishing is just the cruellest method of killing beautiful creatures. The practice is also called the 'wall of death'. How people can continue to allow this method of fishing is beyond me, it is so gutless and many creatures are killed that are not eaten, such as dolphins and beautiful albatrosses. They don't stand a chance. By Jennifer Carr

Barwon Coast your local coastal foreshore manager has the responsibility for the management of 13km of coastal crown land from Collendina to Blue Rocks including our beautiful beaches in Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads and 13th Beach. We are also the manager of the Port of Barwon Heads and operate two large coastal caravan parks – Barwon Heads Caravan Park and the Riverview Family Caravan Park, Ocean Grove plus the Riverside Camping area. Centre Toilet Block, Ocean Grove – Update Barwon Coast has commenced its largest ever self funded project with the redevelopment of the Ocean Grove Main Beach amenity block. This project is the last major component of the Ocean Grove Main beach redevelopment project commenced a decade ago. The overall project cost including demolition and relocation of services will be close to $1million funded thru the successful operations of our two major caravan parks in Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove. No contribution from the local community, nor the municipality is required to deliver this substantial infrastructure development that will serve the growing population of Ocean Grove and increasing numbers of visitors. Recent work has seen the construction of the 100,000 litre underground concrete tank to collect rainwater harvested from the roof and paved concourse that should provide for 70% of the peak season water used for toilet flushing. The installation of the galvanised steel framework to support the roof has commenced and this has started to provide a better picture of the scale of the building.

Whales and other wildlife It has been wonderful to see the number of Southern Right whales around over the past few weeks. Almost everyday there is a sighting mostly off 13th Beach however the presence of a whale and calf close to the main beach in Ocean Grove gave a wonderful opportunity to observe these magnificent marine mammals. Hooded Plover - a group of up to 8 birds has been recognised flocking along 13th Beach in the vicinity of Beacon beach access. Birds Australia with Monash University have advised they have a permit to capture and band the Hooded Plover to aid ongoing population monitoring. Wallaby - over the past month staff in undertaking works in the central area of 13th Beach have observed clear tracks and scats of a wallaby.

Pest Animals Fox control - along the 13th Beach coastal reserve we are monitoring 12 bait stations on a weekly basis, and whilst the take of baits to date has been consistently high, foxes are known to actually cache baits. This program will continue up to October’ Rabbit control - the program for the Ocean Grove Foreshore area is nearly finished for this year with a reduced number of bait enclosures now in operation, in high bait taking locations

Pest Plants On the Ocean Grove Spit we have been targeting succulents and scramblers over the past month with some work on polygala removal. Bridal Creeper - In partnership with other land managers on the Bellarine Peninsula preparations are under way for a repeat of the aerial application of the biological control agent that has shown good success with the development of rust fungus. Polygala - Bellarine pea. We attended a local workshop on the program of steps to enable the future introduction of a biological control agent for this pest plant.

Works on the Ocean Grove Spit Over the next few months a great deal of activity will be observed on the river side of the Ocean Grove Spit with the construction of the next stage of Barwon Water’s sewer main replacement program from Pt Lonsdale thru to Black Rock. Two projects are proposed to be undertaken over the next 4 months being the boring under the Barwon River to take the new sewer main from Ocean Grove to Barwon Heads and the construction of a new sewer main thru the Spit from the south end of the Riverview Family Caravan Park to the point when the river boring project will commence. During this time there will be considerable interruption to those walking, cycling along the trails thru the Spit and temporary diversions are planned. Signage is likely to be erected in coming weeks advising of the works to be undertaken. I encourage you to contact me to discuss any issues related to coastal management in our region by phoning me on 5254 1371 Bob Jordan General Manager Barwon Coast, Ewing Blyth Drive, Barwon Heads

Gluten free update FURTHER to an article on Gluten-free menus in the last edition of the Voice, Club Grove has a choice for those needing that kind of diet. Details can be provided by contacting the Club on 5255 1540. About one in 100 Australians has coeliac disease. In these people, gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, barley and oats, damages the small intestine leading to a range of symptoms including anaemia, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea or constipation, fatigue, nausea and stomach cramps. Up to 75 per cent of people with coeliac disease are not aware they have the condition putting their symptoms down to other conditions, stress or ageing. Untreated coeliac disease can result in other serious conditions including malnutrition, osteoporosis, depression, infertility and some cancers. We have also been asked to point out that Bardeli has been providing gluten-free options for a number of years.

Boys create a Storm in Ballarat BELLARINE Storm U14yr Boys A Team recently travelled to Ballarat to compete in the 39th McDonald's Junior Basketball Tournament, which involved over 200 teams (various age groups) competing. Saturday’s games matched the boys up against Castlemaine Black and Hamilton. Both games resulted in good wins to the boys and a confidence boost for the team. Sunday the boys were matched up against Pheonix 1 and Dandenong. Both games again resulted in good wins to the boys and placed them at the top of their pool, and into the Semi final against Ararat. Mondays Semi final was a one way affair with the boys continuing their great form and running away easy winners 52pts to 19pts and setting up a grand final match with the winner of pool A, Werribee. The Grand Final was

played at the Ballarat Miners Dome between two evenly matched teams, though Werribee had superiority in the height department. However, from the first jump the Storm boys got away to a good start with some fast breaks, slick passing and lay-ups. This saw the boys go into the half time break with a handy lead of 7 points. The second half of the final saw the boys turn up the heat further with Storm playing with intensity, putting pressure on the opposition players, causing easy turnovers and hurting Werribee on the score board. It was definitely the boys best all round game over the long weekend, with Storm running out comfortable winners by 16 pts. Final score: Storm 40pts, Werribee 24 pts. A great effort by all players. MVP over the tournament for Storm was awarded to Mitchell Peers. Other great results saw Bellarine Storm U

Bellarine Storm results

U20 G The Lady Storm took on the powerful Melbourne

Tigers. Controversy happened 7 minutes after the game started when it was discovered that Melbourne started the game with 4 players and the rules stated they must have 5 to begin play. The Lady Storm were to be awarded 7 "bonus" points for Melbourne’s infringement, and then something happened which is unheard of in team sports. The Lady Storm players showed just what a class outfit they truly are and just how much they respect fair play by refusing to take the 7 bonus points. If we were to beat the tigers we were going to do it the

right way, in a fair contest. Well the Lady Storm played as always with their hearts and soul and did everything possible to win but in the end came up short. This team has not won a game so far but they are what Bellarine basketball is all about. Their character, pride and love of the game is the best in the state. Because of these remarkable young women the winner Friday night was the game of basketball. Bob Parker (coach) U12 GIRLS The under 12 Girls played Keilor on Friday at home and last time we played them we were beaten convincingly. This time however we had the upper hand and played strong defence and a great team game both in offence and defence. The girls were passing the ball well and making sure we got the best shot. We won the

time - trailing 15 to 18. Castlemaine managed to break away in the second 1/2, but our girls never give up & made them work hard to the end. Final result - Castlemaine 38 def Bellarine 29. Our girls did a great job with only 7 players (5 who are bottom age), we came up against a really big, strong side of 10. That depth really factors in when you are playing in a Tournament, so I hope our girls are proud of what they achieved.

Boings turns on for R2

Nick Heyward Ph: 0412 121 906 Fax: 5254 2274 PO Box 1075, Barwon Heads 3227


THE second round of the SOUL club championship was held in clean offshore 1-1.5m waves at the Boings break at 13th Beach. Once again over 40 surfers turned out on a cold but sunny clear day. All competitors were keen to either consolidate on or make up for results from the first round held the month before. The over 40’s had the most number of entrants and were

first to hit the water on the still dropping tide. The combination of the tide and the large sand bar made wave choice critical. During the day the tide filled in, and more heats and divisions hit the water. The open A surfers showed great commitment and had some big manoeuvres rewarded with big scores. Judges sometimes had a challenge with competitors often spread over a

wide area. The results from this comp are being held under lock and key and not being announced until they’re tallied up with the first round and announced at the end of year function in December. The club held its mid year function at the Ocean Grove Golf Club later in the evening. It was out with the wet suits and in with leather jackets, white

t-shirts and slicked back hair for the Grease/Saturday Night fever night. With great meals and a few beverages the disco was cranked up and every one strutted their stuff. The club will now look forward to probably going to Kennett River on the weekend of August 28-29 now that the federal election is on the 21st. By Andrew Brown.

Zanoni signs for Grubbers

OCEAN Grove Surf lifesaver Matthew Burke has scooped the pool at the 2010 Life Saving Victoria awards. Burke, 35, Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club’s operations manager and club manager, was crowned as the Lifesaver of the year across the Victoria region earlier this month. The loyal Ocean Grove SLSC clubman was among seven candidates in contention for the coveted honour at the state awards at Life Saving Victoria headquarters in Port Melbourne on Saturday July 17. “It’s a big honour to win an award like this, I didn’t see it coming,” Burke said. Burke, an employee with Jetstar in Avalon Airport, has been an active volunteer member of the Ocean Grove SLSC for the past 28 years. Meanwhile, the Ocean Grove SLSC held its Annual General Meeting on Sunday.

FORMER Leopold ace bowler Rhys Zanoni is looking forward to commencing his new playing role with the Ocean Grove Cricket Club in 2010/11, writes Mark Heenan. Zanoni, 27, who has spent almost 20 years playing juniors and seniors at the Leopold Cricket Club, said it was a tough decision to leave the Lions. The left-arm fast medium bowler took 17 wickets in nine wickets at an average of 14.29 in nine First XI matches for Leopold in 2009/10. Zanoni, a Geelong Country Week Cricket representative, was Leopold Cricket Club’s First XI most economical bowler last season conceding less than two runs per over. “It wasn’t an easy decision, it

was probably one of the hardest things I have had to do, because I still have a lot of friends at Leopold,” Zanoni said. “I have been at the Leopold Cricket Club for 19 years and this would have been my 20th year this season. “Things probably haven’t gone as well as I would have liked at Leopold from a club point of view and for me personally. “There comes a time when everyone needs a change in life.” The Leopold resident had spoken to two other GCA (Geelong Cricket Association) clubs and another Bellarine Peninsula Cricket Association (BPCA) club before agreeing to join the Grubbers earlier this month. He said newly appointed

Grubber cricket coach Lucas Cameron, who joined the club in June, and club president Lucas Baulch played a key role in getting him to the club. The Grubbers will be hoping to improve on their ninth placed finish in the BPCA A-Grade competition in 2009/10. “While (Ocean Grove) finished in ninth place last season, they finished the season off strongly winning their last two A-Grade matches,” Zanoni said. “There is scope for improvement, the talent is there at Ocean Grove - I believe Ocean Grove can be a force to be reckoned with in the BPCA this season.” Outside of cricket, Zanoni is a qualified fitness instructor and also works as a labourer.

Action from Cobras White under 12s win against St Albans Black.

Under 12 Orange Round 12 vs Queenscliff Blue Captains Ben Pickering and Jesse Gallo Carson led the Cobras Orange outfit onto the Snakepit in what turned out to be pretty good conditions for footy. The ball went up and the Cobras went Bang! Lachlan (muffin) Smith had a major on the board before the runner had his shirt on. Sadly that was it for the next 3 quarters with the boys struggling to play their usual brand of team orientated footy. After a rev up at 3 quarter time and a commitment to lift the work rate, the Cobras went back to good old fashioned, hard at it footy and actually won the quarter with gun forward Nicky Foster slamming home two big ones. A lot to learn from this game but the signs are there heading into the break. Cobras 3.5.23 Queenscliff 9.14.68 Best: J.Bond, D.Bradley, N.Foster, J.McDonald Goals: N.Foster 2, L.Smith Under 12 Orange Round 13 vs Barwon Heads In a windy tough arm wrestle, the Cobras Orange side played some of their best footy for the season.

hardness at the ball. Captains Daniel Spence and Lachlan Smith were fantastic and this spread right across the team with guys playing with a “no guts no glory” attitude. Ben Pickering used his height to his advantage, Jesse Gallo – Carson got in and under the packs and William Blackman showed strength at every contest. A couple of hard hits to the head to both Connor and Jack only inspired these warriors to go in harder and get their own ball. The muffin played what was possibly the best single game of any Cobras Orange this season and got the praise from players and supporters alike. The Cobras went down in the end against a tough side and kicking against a strong last quarter breeze. Great game fellas. Cobras 3.6.24 Heads 6.6.42 Best: W.Blackman, L.Smith, B.Pickering, J.Gallo Carson, C.Harvey, J.Tregenza Goals: B.Schwartz, J.Sherwell, L.Gawley Price Under 12 White Round 13 vs St. Albans Black Finally! At Last! A home game at HOME for the Cobras White. Its been a long wait for the boys but wow it was worth every minute just to see the team put on a clinical display for the home

crowd. The boys enthusiasm and effort really shone through with coach Simon Holmer (at the long break) calling it the best half of footy he had seen all year. The rotation system worked very well again producing 9 different goal kickers. Well done boys. Cobras 10.11.71 St. Albans 1.6.12 Best: J.Calliguri, W.Crawford, K.Lattarulo, K.Lock, C.OKeefe, J.Synnott Goals: K.Lattarulo 2, B.Allen, J.Butteriss, J.Caliguri, W.Crawford, B.Gist, D.Lindsell, R.Symonds, N.Weatherly Under 14 (1) Round 12 vs North Geelong The boys were up for the challenge of a top of the table clash and handed out a flogging to ladder leaders North Geelong 13 11 89 to 0 0 0. James Stirling and Jed Evans relished the opportunity to go up against bigger bodies in the middle of the ground and as usual neither let us down with their effort and dominance. Zac Ramsay on a wing with constant supply of dash and delivery made life easier for our forwards in a classy display. Captain Caldow led from the front winning plenty of the ball and Che Durran set up many attacks off half back with

intelligent ball use and link up play. Goal kickers - Miles Henderson excellent with 4, Harry Walker and Nick Anastassiou each kicked 2, Christian West, Ned Holland, Nat Gravener, Zaine Cordy and Luke Bastiaan all kicked 1 goal. Under 14(1) Round 13 vs Portarlington The boys came back from the break looking like they were still on holidays as we were confronted by a fired up and physical Portarlington. After a lacklustre first half, reassuring and calming words at half time from Mohry and Charlie saw us claw back a 2 goal deficit, and once again play the brand of football we have seen of late to steady and have a good win in the end 7 9 51 to 5 5 35. Andy Douglass and Nick Murphy were strong all day in defence. In welcome returns from injury James Teague and Josh Prendergast gave us plenty of drive, and James Stirling into the ruck and Zaine Cordy onto the ball were matchwinners for us. Up forward Luke Bastiaan and Jed Evans were dangerous targets. Goal Kickers - Luke Bastiaan 2, Jed Evans, Nat Gravener, Miles Henderson, Josh Kehagias and James Stirling all kicked 1.

MODEST youngster Kaiden Long is relishing the opportunity to play senior footy with the Grubbers in 2010. The Under 18 Ocean Grove footballer is making a strong presence in the seniors after earning a promotion from the Grubbers’ third grade. Long, 18, who last year won the Under 18’s Grubbers best and fairest, has played four senior games in 2010. The St Joseph’s College student joins current fellow Under 18 players Patrick Maloney and Kane Reardon to mix their skills in the BFL seniors this season. “When I first came in and played senior footy it is definitely a lot more physically than I first thought,” said Long, who made the Geelong Falcons Under 18 Squad last season. “You do get big hits with your body. “Fitness is a big thing with seniors, quarters can go as long as 35-40 minutes in the seniors, where as in the Under 18’s only go for 20 minutes so it’s like playing another half.” Long, who stands at 186cm, has been groomed as a long term key position at the Grubbers and has already played a number of vital roles down in defence. In Round 14, the solidly built teenager restricted the impact of Barwon Heads forward James Taylor during the first half. The dangerous Taylor kicked six goals against Torquay in Round 13 the week before. However the day was all over for Long after half time against the Seagulls after he strained his hamstring and sat out the rest of the match. The well spoken youngster is likely to be sidelined for another week

before he returns to the field as both Senior and Under 18 Grubbers heads towards the finals. “I was a bit sore at half time and I went off and our trainer gave me a rub and said it was a bit bumpy,” Long said. “The trainer said ‘I don’t think you will be right’ but go and warm up and see how it goes and I walked down the hill and I was no good.” Ocean Grove senior coach Cameron McGregor said Long, who played in this year’s Under 18 BFL Interleague, had made huge inroads in 2010 with his increased flexibility around the ground. “He is a versatile player, he has been used as half-back flanker for the seniors and a key backman for juniors - he can be thrown down forward as well,” McGregor said. Meanwhile, Under 18 coach Matt Tyrrell said the naturally shy Long had potential to be a future leader at the club. “He is starting to come out of his shell a bit this year, he was a bit quiet last year with his voice,” Tyrrell said “He is very skillful for his age, he is strong, he has the speed and he can play anywhere.”

and 18s give Grove clean sweep

OCEAN Grove remains in fourth position in the Buckley's BFL Reserves grade after a comphrensive 32-point win against Anglesea, writes, Mark Heenan. Final scores were Ocean Grove 13.8.86 to Anglesea 7.12.54. Vice-captain James Stapleton booted five goals in the win, while reserves playing coach Kane Montgomery kicked three majors. Youngster Cameron Marchbank and Oliver Holland, who have both played a number of senior matches this season, had impressive games. Saturday's match was a memorable occasion for the pugnacious Jeremy Polgar who notched up his 100th game for the Grubbers. Second-placed Ocean Grove 16.9.105 scored a resounding 79-point win over Anglesea 3.8.26 in the Under 18 Bendigo Community Bank Bellarine Football League Under 18's. The Grubbers started with all guns blazing with a sixgoal opening quarter blitz, while the visitors were kept goalless at the first break. Kane Reardon, 18, who has played seven senior matches in 2010, continued his good form in the Under 18's and remains in contention for a senior recall. Reardon along with Todd Rodgers, Jack Rawlings and Mitchell Evans all kicked three goals.

grubbers seniors

the goods THE Grubbers are on the march towards the Bellarine Football League finals. Ocean Grove 11.18.84 claimed their most important win in season 2010 on Saturday in a compelling match, defeating Anglesea 11.10.76 in front of a parochial home crowd. The gutsy eightpoint victory means the Grubbers leapfrog sixthplaced Anglesea, moving into the BFL top five courtesy of its superior percentage with three rounds remaining. Ocean Grove coach Cameron McGregor appeared pleased with the final result, although frustrated his team squandered numerous opportunities in front of goal in the first half. The Grubbers kicked an inaccurate three goals 10 behinds in the second quarter alone. “The feeling is probably more relief, after having a lot more scoring shots and a lot more of the football in the first three quarters,” McGregor said after the match. Fittingly Vice-captains Josh Milnes, acting skipper in the absence of injured Grubber captain James Dalton, and James McTaggart booted the final two goals for the home side in a nail-biting last quarter. The skilful McTaggart thrilled locals with his late goal sealing the match in the dying minutes. In the corresponding match in Round six, the Grubbers lost a high scoring shootout to Anglesea by 10 points at Dave Harding Oval. “It was a bit of pressure (for me), about time I kicked a goal late in a game, I missed a goal

down at Anglesea last time late in the game,” McTaggart said. Ocean Grove played one of their strongest matches to date from a defensive point of view, the Grubbers led at all quarter intervals. Anglesea had booted 20 goals or more in two of their last three games prior to Saturday, thus there was an onus on preventing dangerous forward Marcus Smith, current BFL leading goalkicker, who was kept relatively quiet with one goal. The visitors had several good players including veteran swooping defender Christian Robertson and Brock Shiels. “We did a good job defensively – our back six (defenders) all year (while) it is not the same players every week, whoever plays in defence really have stood up for us,” McGregor said. “We again got our match-ups right. “Greg Costello did a super job on (Marcus) Smith, it was only Smith in the last five minutes when he went to the midfield and got a couple of clearances that he actually had any impact on the game.” The courageous Tim Baker and his dynamic brother Ryan, both played excellent games across half-back and along with on-baller Tyson Doherty and all three have continued their emergence as leaders with the Grubbers. So inspiring was Tim, he was seen sporting a black eye after the match.

Bustling defender Sam Van Deuren was the only injury casualty after he sustained a hamstring strain. Saturday’s match was billed a family friendly day for the local community, the Grubbers hosting a Ladies’ Luncheon, while free admittance was given to Collendina Cobras junior footballers. The young Cobras even jumped into the huddle and sang the song in the rooms with the Grubbers after the match. “The whole idea was to get the Collendina Cobras junior players here to see these senior players,” McGregor said. “The Cobras are the future of this club and hopefully they can come

down and watch a few more games this year or next year,” McGregor said. “We got (the Cobras) in the rooms at the end to get some culture around the place.” The Grubbers need to keep winning to consolidate their top five spot and secure a finals berth. It won’t be easy

with matches against Queenscliff and Torquay in the final two rounds. Ocean Grove’s focus now turns to Portarlington with the Grubbers taking on the ninth-placed Demons. Game starts at 2:10pm at Portarlington Recreation Reserve this Saturday.
