The Noarlunga Line

On July 21 Leon Bignell visited the Seaford Rail Depot to welcome Adelaide's first A-City Class 4000 electric railcar. Two more of these rail cars will arrive shortly and will be used for intensive ontrack tests and evaluations starting next month. The Noarlunga line will be operational later this year and electric train services are expected to commence between Seaford and Adelaide early next year.

Leon recently returned from Europe where he held discussions with the five most influential decision makers in the cycling world and lobbied them to keep the Tour Down Under in South Australia. No decision will be made until after a review of the international cycling calendar but they were left in no doubt about the importance of the Tour Down Under to South Australia.

Meet the Museum robots

robots developed using telepresence technology.


Two robotic devices with cylindrical bases on wheels and large screens at the front. The robot on the left is black and the one on the right is white. This project is the result of an innovative partnership between the National Museum, CSIRO and the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. The mobile telepresence technology operates via the National Broadband Network or NBN-equivalent broadband connections. The new technology enables students to interact with a museum educator through a robot equipped with a panoramic camera that allows each student to control their own view of the National Museum's Landmarks gallery. The students also have access to additional digital content about objects on display and a range of other interactive features. The education team at the National Museum is currently devising interactive, collaborative and curriculum relevant programs for schools. Community groups will also soon be able to access virtual tours using the Museum Robots from computer terminals at the Digital Hubs located at NBN-connected libraries and community facilities. --------

The cinemallunga boys Andrew, Brian and Seb went to scavenge a hospital bed Phil kindly offered for a prop for the ABF parade.

While chatting, Phil’s dog Jordy was very pushy dropping bits of wood by our feet begging we be part of the throw/chase/retrieval game that is Jordy’s ‘raison d’etre”. After a few throws by Andrew, which was risky as it only encourages Jordy Brian felt something heavy on his shoe.. it was a spanner... unbelievable. Son of a gun. This is either a dog with attitude or one who has a master who throws his tools around. Thanks Phil for the loan of the Bed and the laugh. ------Recording Willunga’s Modern History Reflections of Willunga is an important part of the Willunga175 anniversary celebrations. We aim to record oral and pictorial memories of Willunga from current and past residents, both young and old, to ensure that this valuable information is retained for the future. The Reflections of Willunga subcommittee is interested to speak to anyone who wishes to contribute to the project. This is your opportunity to participate in documenting the more modern history of Willunga. Do you have a story or special memory of Willunga that you’d like to share? Are you willing to be videotaped? If you’re a bit shy, we’ll be collecting audio recordings, and will accept written information and photographs too. We’re also looking for volunteers to help with collecting and collating the information. We need access to good quality video and audio equipment, and people with the skills to operate it. Transcribing the spoken word is another vital task that will ensure the success of the project. This activity will begin late in 2013 and continue throughout most of 2014. Collected

information will be compiled and made accessible in several ways, depending on available funds – probably a DVD and accompanying book, which will be available for sale; on the Willunga175 website and via other on-line means. If you’d like to be involved, please contact Chris Horsman on 0438 131 049 or email -------

Sporting Club News

Willunga Football Club Demons Out Run Vale Eagles Willunga and McLaren played a competitive first half on Sunday in front of a large crowd of Willunga Past Players and Officials. As the weather deteriorated in the second half Willunga’s superior skills and fitness allowed them to kick clear and win convincingly. McLaren dominated the first ten minutes of the game. They had several shots for goal before Cameron kicked truly. Mutton and McEvoy were instrumental in getting the ball forward and were ably supported by McDonald in defence. Portlock and Burdett were the prime movers for Willunga and set up opportunities for their forwards who found the strong cross breeze a hindrance to accuracy. Brown tacked strongly and was awarded a free kick 30 metres out to kick the Demons first goal at the fifteen minute mark. Damian Fenoughty provided midfield run for the visitors and Hansen looked dangerous up forward. Gill narrowly missed a long shot. From the kick out, Glass kicked long to Steele who gave to Portlock whose pass hit the fast leading Butcher. A goal resulted from an outstanding end to end passage of play. McEvoy showed class for McLarens to drive the ball deep but the kick hit the post. Willunga started the second quarter with endeavour. Burdett and Portlock produced skills which made light of the slippery and windy conditions. Brown kicked a goal from the goal square after a dropped mark then Alexopoulos set up Burdett who kicked a second. A minute later Butcher snapped a boundary goal to give Willunga a commanding lead in a low scoring match. Butcher almost kicked another but a desperate McLaren defender touched the ball on the line. Hansen scored a point on the rebound then Butcher marked strongly and kicked long. Another point. McLaren’s Mutton kicked a long point after a strong mark. The visitor’s forwards then fought hard


to keep the ball in their forward lines. Their efforts were rewarded when Cameron kicked long to Cowling who marked and kicked a goal from a tight angle after the siren. McLaren kicked the first goal for the second half after Mutton again used his strength to mark in the goal square. Gill kicked their third straight a minute later to reduce the margin to two points. Steele and Butcher combined to allow Portlock to goal but McLaren counter attacked. Cowling earned a free and kicked truly at the six minute mark of the third quarter. Sadly it was McLarens last goal of the day. Willunga began to control the game and despite freezing rain, warmed to the task. Paterson gave Sherry the opportunity to goal. His long kick defied the tricky wind. Portlock kicked the best individual goal of the day when he played on from a free kick and bombed a long drifting goal. He almost repeated the result a minute later. His point gave Willunga a four goal lead at three quarter time. Eight minutes of sloppy play at the start of the final quarter ended when Portlock marked and goaled from forty metres. Proctor, Ellis and Caesarowicz defended gallantly to stifle Willunga’s forward thrusts. Some Wakefield magic on his left foot produced a fine goal at the fifteen minute mark. McLaren attacked from the resulting centre bounce but were foiled when Glass marked strongly in the square. McDonald and Renney ran the ball out of defence and sherry goaled. McLaren again attacked from the centre. Cameron and Gill combined to give Damien Fenoughty a chance to goal but his kick just missed. Willunga outscored McLaren by four goals in the last quarter and a half to run out comfortable winners. -------MAYOR'S CIVIC RECEPTION Recently, on a Friday night ( June 28), the Mayor of Onkaparinga hosted a gathering of sports people in Ramsay Place in the Noarlunga centre. It was her idea to greet and present certificates to life members of sporting clubs in this council area. There was a talk from the Mayor in which she praised and thanked all life members who have provided valuable services to sport for many years. Sheryn McElligot had organised the event and sent out invitations to all the clubs to send two people to represent their sporting organisation.

Basketball- Margaret Peters and Vicky Simpson Football - Neil Lang and Gary Reed Golf - Graham Edson and Peter Foreman Netball - Eva Treen and Anne McDonald Table tennis - Darryl Peters and John Nixon. The supper afterwards allowed people to chat and talk to the Mayor, each other and councillors. Reported by Darryl Peters

A very tired nurse walks into a bank, totally exhausted after a long and exhausting 18-hour shift. Preparing to write a check, she pulls a rectal thermometer out of her purse and tries to write with it. When she realizes her mistake, she looks at the flabbergasted teller, and without missing a beat, she says: 'Well, that's great.... that's just great..... some asshole's got my pen!'
