It was reported by Karratha Primary School that on the morning of the 31st August, a male person had attempted to coerce a female student into his vehicle before school.

Parabola Palabra

Elise Batchelor

With the joie de vivre that comes of spring, and in celebration of Literacy and Numeracy Week, I bring you a poem of languages, culture and…the maths exam. I remember the bliss of conquering said year 12 exam along with friends Suzanne and Jeni… or was that delirium filling our heads? Have a read and, if you’re keen for translations, including pi to a million decimal places, head to my website www. pilbarapoet.blogspot. com.

Was sitting with Suzanne, the dawn of our exam, with little of a plan, except the plan to cram. The apple pie now eaten, eight pieces fully beaten, with icrecream, too, that sweetened the morning we were greetin’.

And Japanese, yippee! I’d have an ‘ichi ni’ and use chopsticks for tea, drink sake ‘til I pee. (But truly, to my core, ah, I’m an Exploradora so jaunting with my ‘mochila’, I’d be a…conquistadora?)

Six subjects I had chosen. My mum had stood quite frozen and once done recomposing had challenged my proposing all LANGUAGES it was, me, LOTE star, just because if I e’er did leave Oz, I’d order ‘vichyssoise’

And English, well, compulsory. Not that it made me ulcery dressed in organza glory our teacher told great stories. Thus, five subject of six, I did the sixth for kicks, just threw it in the mix, maths knowledge, well, was nix.

‘NO I mean…3.14159 2653589 I love pi, it is sublime. I love singing it in time.’ ‘Elise?’ Suzanne asked back What’s with you and Maths? Was not your subject track for languages? Your knack?’

in France and I would say, ‘Monsier, errr…Je voudrais les Pomme frites,’ at Maccas, hey, on the Champs Elysees. In Deustchland, what a winner, nude folk in Berlin’s inner, der Tiergarten, me - grinner shouting, ‘Ich bin ein Berliner!’

‘Suzanne,’ I pinned her eye, ‘Oh why oh why oh why did you pick maths, like I?’ She said, ‘’Cause I like pi.’ ‘You mean,’ I said to her, ‘like, apple pie?’ This blur at dawn now caused a stir and she said,’‘Well, um, err…’

‘The thing, Suzanne, you see, this Maths is language glee, I love it like boats the sea, but it’s all quite…Greek…to me…hehe. Well…we passed with fine aplomb, parabolas now done, whence I flew towards the sun Santorini - that’s the one.

I'm a resident in Karratha and we live very close to the Salvation Army shop. Most days I travel to the Centro to pick up a few items, do some shopping etc and more often than not I see something disturbing going on. People in this town are very generous and donate regularly to the Salvation Army (who do a lot for our community) and these donations are left outside the premises for the volunteers to collect and sort before they are put into the shop. There have been an alarming number of people outside the Salvo's sorting through the items when they are closed. These people are not finding a way to put their donations undercover, they are looking for a 'free' bargain. This is not just one 'type' of person it has been several different people but the thing that made me more angry was when I saw two males in a mining company car looking through the items that had been donated late Sunday afternoon. I have lived up here long enough to know that the mining companies pay very well so why did you feel the need to pilfer through the Salvos donations? All you people have to do is wait until they open and purchase the items. It's disgusting that people think they can get away with stealing from a charity. Even more so when they rock up in a company vehicle and start sifting through items. I think that video surveillance should be placed out the front (without letting people know) so we can shame the thieves, get their number plates and do something about this. The Salvation Army is a great organisation and needs community support, not tight ar*es stealing from it!!

Roebourne: In the Shadow of a Mountain Sitting on top of our hill, the sun sets west on the horizon, the cool ocean breeze flows to us from Point Samson, Over looking our town we call Eiramugadu, but to out-siders, you call it Roebourne. Our town might be small, our town may be tiny, but Roebourne is my home and that’s where you will always find me. Being small ain’t no disadvantage, for we are many with a big, strong heritage. Our culture still lives, when we are gone and our songs and dance will always carry on. Camping, hunting and fishing may be a great pass-time, but for many of us locals, is our life-line. The great iron snake rolls through our country, carrying pieces of our land out across the sea. Towns pop up here and there, the mining boom has hit, there’s people everywhere. Times may have changed with the outside world, so we have to learn to adapt and move forward. To many people, changing with the times can be hard, but you are not alone, for we have a history and culture that stands so proud.

Roebourne, our tiny town that lays in the shadow of a mountain, is home to many....on our Ngarluma Nation. Roebourne is a place where my Ancestors once roamed, Roebourne is Roebourne, the one place I call home. Sitting on the banks of the Harding River, our town has survived all sorts of weather; droughts, cyclones, floods and storms. Roebourne was built very strong, on a solid foundation. Roebourne, our tiny the shadow of the mountain. They say Roebourne comes alive all but once a year, when the thunder of hoofs race around the track to the peoples cheer. People come and people go, they move faster, faster than the wind can blow. When you’re all gone back to your homes, have a thought for where you have been, for Roebourne is our home...our home land you have seen!!! Landon Punch

Help clean up Australia As part of the Great Northern Clean Up and the nationwide Clean Up Australia Day initiative, Communities Against Rubbishing the Environment (CARE) will be conducting a community clean up at the Nickol Bay Foreshore on Sunday 12th September from 8am to 12pm. For every bag of rubbish collected, The Shire of Roebourne will donate $6 towards the Salvation Army’s Karratha Women’s Shelter as part of their Buck for Bags program.

Warambie estate Karratha service WorKer accommodation - important public notice

two great chances to find out about Karratha’s exciting new subsidised rental accommodation. monday, september 6, 2010 at 1pm and 5.30pm at the Karratha international hotel, on the corner of hillview and millstream roads. Affordable, high-quality service worker accommodation is coming to Karratha. The State Government through the Department of Regional Development and Lands Royalties for Region’s program, and LandCorp, with the National Lifestyle Villages Group’s managing development arm, Lifestyle Developments, is developing Warambie Estate, a community built specifically to accommodate the service workers of Karratha, with 100 residential dwellings. This is in response to exceptionally high demands for housing, and the subsequent high rentals being experienced in Karratha as a result of resource-sector growth in the region. These contemporary homes are precision-engineered using high-grade, corrosion-free steel, and have a

solid, reinforced concrete base, so they’re much stronger, and will last far longer than any traditional home. The Service Worker Accommodation is being established specifically for employees in the retail, tourism and general service sectors who find it difficult to compete with resource workers in Karratha’s tight rental market. The estate is located near the Karratha town centre and is a short walk from the popular Karratha City Shopping Centre. The Service Worker Accommodation provides an accommodation mix of contemporary-style one, two and three bedroom homes. It also provides subsidised rental accommodation, principally for longer term tenancies for families. GROUP




And it does this in such a way that the open market, largely driven by the demands of resource-sector growth, does not force pricing up. to find out if you are eligible and how you can be involved in the allocation process you’re invited to attend the special information session on monday, september 6. The two sessions, at 1pm (for a 1.30pm start) and 5.30pm (for a 6pm start) will be held at the Karratha International Hotel on the corner of Hillview and Millstream Roads. There are just one hundred homes available so interest is expected to be high. To register to attend either of the two Information Sessions please call 1300 45 55 65.

Innovative village to offer financial relief for renters in Karratha

The Karratha Cancer Support Group

A few weeks ago we published an article titled “A view of our hospital” about an open day at Nickol Bay Hospital.

Within the article we stated that the Cancer Council and Retravision donated a TV and DVD player for their palliative care room within the hospital but it was in fact the Karratha Cancer Support Group and Retravision that donated the TV and DVD player.

Progress is now well underway, on time, and on budget, for 100 homes at Warambie Estate, the new Service Worker Accommodation project offering affordable rental accommodation for people employed in the Shire of Roebourne with no links to the resources sector. Working with local governments and state government agencies, the Department of Regional Development and Lands is funding the initiative to develop significant regional opportunities under its Royalties for Regions program. Managed by LandCorp, National Lifestyle Villages was awarded the Service Worker Accommodation project last year through addressing LandCorp’s criteria of offering affordable, long-term, high quality and centrally located accommodation for service worker families and singles affected by high rental prices in the area. The project was delivered through a fast-tracked project program including detailed design and securing all approvals.

covers around five hectares on the corners of Searipple and Warambie Roads, Karratha.

Due to unprecedented resource sector growth, rental properties in the town of Karratha have been out of reach for employees in the retail, tourism and general service sector industries whose annual incomes usually struggle to meet the tight rental demands, often in excess of $1,500 per week, for standard properties in the region. Proposed weekly rents for the Karratha Service Worker Accommodation will range between $300 to $500 per week at Warambie Estate which

Warambie Estate is the product of Lifestyle Developments, a subsidiary company of its parent, the NLV Group, creator of National Lifestyle Villages who are renowned for successfully building communities for the fit and active over 45 demographic.

Students inspired by science Many schools throughout the Pilbara are being visited by Scitech’s Outreach team from the 30th August to the 22nd September. They will be visiting over 800 students at 12 different schools to deliver interactive ‘Life and Living’ workshops to some of the most remote schools in Western Australia. One of the schools on the list to visit was Karratha Primary Ed Support School on 1st September. This is a joint initiative by Scitech, BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Woodside and it aims to deliver Scitech’s Aboriginal Education Program to students to educate, inspire and excite them about science.

• Karratha Primary Ed Support School

“This trip is just one of many tours we undertake throughout the year

as part of this program which aims to give students in these remote areas a unique opportunity to better understand the world around them using interactive and fun activities” says Scitech’s Aboriginal Programs Coordinator, Heidi Madden. In the Life and Living workshops the younger students learned all about insects where as the older students learnt about how the human body works. “It is really important that students in remote areas have access to the same learning programs as students in the city do” said Heidi. “There is no better way to demonstrate how we interact with science everyday than by allowing young people to explore it through experimentation”.

youthful fans By Millars Well Primary

Millars Well Primary School hosted the sensational Sneaky Weasel Gang on Thursday August 19. The students enjoyed several funky band originals complimented with one or two well known covers. Before the band even played a song the students excitedly initiated clapping and bopping along to the bass player warming up. Children, teachers and parents got their dancing shoes on as the band played some groovy numbers. At the end of the performance the musicians answered questions, gave some personal background to their musical journeys and careers,

and demonstrated different aspects of their instruments to the audience. As the band packed away they were asked for autographs from their newly made fans and obliged much to the children’s delight. With educational outcomes such as appreciation of the Arts, and exposure to different musical genres, is was a fun and engaging way to spend the last hour of a Thursday afternoon! Thank you very much to Mr Croft from Karratha Senior High School, WAM (Western Australian Music Industry Association), and Healthways “Smarter than Smoking” for organising the event.

Bikers celebrate anniversary

• The Rocky Horror Show cast

Get those suspenders out! Guys, this is your only chance to get to wear women’s suspenders for fun and get away with it! Time Warp: A Musical Tribute to the Rocky Horror Show brought to you by Time Warp Productions is coming to town on Wednesday 8th September at The Walkington Theatre. For those who aren’t familiar with The Rocky Horror Show, the production is a long running British musical written by Richard O’Brien about a newly wed couple who get lost in a rainstorm and come across Dr Frank-N-Furter’s castle; a transvestite from the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania. The storyline then continues to show all the events that occur throughout the night with the aid of some hilariously catchy songs. If you haven’t heard of it you will have at least danced at a party to the most famous song from the production “Time Warp”.

(Most likely after consuming a considerable amount of alcohol). Traditionally the audience dresses up as their favorite character from the production and joins in with the singing and dancing. Time Warp takes the basic storyline of the cult classic, deftly twists it to keep in with the tribute laws, and turns up the sexy content with ad-lib comedy and audience participation. The production has been touring around Australia and New Zealand since 2007. The cast members are some of Australia’s finest and most experienced musical theatre performers. This production is not for everyone as you can imagine but if you have an open mind you must go watch the show as you will not be disappointed. It’s funny, witty and sexy, but be warned it is rather bizarre!

On Saturday 21st August the Karratha Bikers hosted their 20 year anniversary at their clubhouse in the KIE. The Southern Chapter members of the Karratha Bikers rode up from Perth for the event and local members headed down to Minilya Road House to meet them. Live music was provided by local band Rocket Surgery and the Bondi Cigars. The Bondi Cigars were also coinicidentaly celebrating their 20th anniversary and thought what better way to celebrate it than with the Karratha Bikers. The night at Minilya will long be remembered by one and all with truckies and the owners of the station who also joined in the party!! The Karratha Bikers supplied the food and played security guards although there was no trouble made. Karratha Biker Joe Merlot commented that everyone kept remarking what a brilliant night everyone was having. Karratha Bikers would like to thank all those who helped to make the 20 year anniversary the success it was. Karratha Bikers will be making a donation to the RFDS for their support to the people in the Pilbara when you really need it.

“An outrageously interactive and hilarious adaptation of the famous cult classic.... Time Warp is a cleverly comical masterpiece with flash, flesh and all the tricks of the spectacle” The West Australian


If you are looking for a quiet restful escape that offers views of the beautiful Blackwood River, Australian bush and tranquil surroundings in a safe and comfortable location, then look no further. This home has been created with style and attention to detail. Nothing has been overlooked. Plenty of room, plenty of water, workshops that would satisfy the most demanding of tradesmen and a home that is a pleasure to live in or have friends to stay...


Red Dirt Camera Club winner The Red Dirt Camera Club; a local organisation, hold monthly competitions for the best photo. These projects follow a theme each month and it gives the members a chance to get creative as they wish no matter how experienced they are. The winner of August’s theme ‘Red” is Michelle Nel who took this photo of the strawberries on a Canon EOS 350D. She said "Since there are so many strawberries around at the moment, I thought they would make a perfect subject for the Red theme of this months competition. I set this shot up with a low table and a white sheet and had the morning sun streaming into the window behind me. In order to show the movement of the tumbling strawberries, I had someone pour water quickly into the glass jug and tried to capture this with the highest shutter speed I could obtain, in those conditions." The Camera Club meet every second Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm at the Pilbara Tafe. They have a wide range of people in the group from point and shoot first timers, to those with all the gear. Next month's theme is Humorous.

Dolphins to close after eight years Well known Karratha catering and take away business Dolphins served it’s last fisherman’s basket yesterday after eight years feeding the community. The closure happens after two years of uncertainty over the proposed multistorey development to happen at the Morse Court location. Despite being a very successful local food outlet, the Dolphins team have had no choice but to close as they have been

unsuccessful in finding an alternative site. “There’s just nowhere in town for a business like our to move to. Everything is being developed for accommodation. I hope that in a few more years there will be more commercial space available for small businesses like ours. “I’d like to sincerely thank all of those people who have supported us

throughout the good and bad times over the last eight years. “Your support has always been greatly appreciated, we couldn’t have survived this journey without you” Roxanne Jordan said.

BAKERS HILL, WA 782.65 Ha (1943Ac)

The closure is another sign that small businesses in the Pilbara are suffering under the pressure of the mining boom.

Always wear sunscreen By the Cancer Council If you’ve heard of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, then you’re probably aware of the dangers of nuclear radiation and the problems we have in dealing with it. At high doses nuclear radiation can be fatal within hours.

Charlie Anthony McKinnon 26th August 2010

At low doses it can cause a range of conditions including skin cancer.

Most of us would be cautious about a trip to Chernobyl, but strangely, many of us are less concerned about exposing ourselves everyday to an equally harmful type of radiation – from the sun.

Melissa and Scott McKinnon are very proud to announce the arrival of their gorgeous boy Charlie Anthony McKinnon. Born 26th August, weighing 9lb 8oz. Huge thankyou to all the staff at Nickol Bay Hospital for their amazing care and support, thanks to Dr Perez and all the faboulous Midwives. He is pictured with his very proud big sister Matilda, 3.

ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun causes skin cancer and Australia has the highest skin cancer rates in the world. More than 430,000 Australians get skin cancer and over 1,700 Australians die from it each year. In the north west of Australia, UV radiation causes sunburn and skin damage very rapidly. Ten or twelve minutes outside can be enough to get burnt. We can’t feel UV radiation, so clear skies or high temperatures can’t be used to determine when sun protection is needed.

customer acknowledges and accepts this fact.

This tool indicates the time of day when sun protection is needed, and daily UV alerts can be found on the Bureau of Meterology website, ( products/UV/Karratha_ WA.shtml), some television and radio broadcasts, and there’s even an iphone app. So how do you use this important tool? The graphic shows how the UV Index varies during the day. When the UV index is below 3, it is safe to be outside with no sun protection. In fact, it’s a good idea! Below UVI 3 is a great time

to get a bit of sun on your skin so that your body can make the Vitamin D that it needs to be healthy. Once the UV Index passes 3, it’s time to cover up and use sun protection measures. Slip on a long sleeved shirt with a collar, Slap on a broad brimmed, bucket or legionnaires hat (not a cap), Seek shade, Slide on sunglasses, and Slop 30+ Broad Spectrum sunscreen on the remaining areas of skin you have exposed. Be smart in the sun so you don’t become a statistic. For more information contact Sharon Perkusich, Cancer Council Regional Education Officer – Pilbara.

Stepfather of shotgun teenager charged

Election analyst Antony Green was a part of the ABC's winning formula..

The stepfather of a teenage boy who took a shotgun to his school in Western Australia's south has been charged with firearms offences. The 16-year-old boy triggered a police lockdown after taking the loaded gun to Esperance Senior High School on August 5. Teachers negotiated with him in an office and he was persuaded to put down the weapon and

give himself up to police. The boy has pleaded guilty to firearms charges and been sent to live with family in Geraldton in WA's Midwest. The boy's stepfather, a 68-yearold man from Esperance, has been summonsed to appear in the Esperance Magistrates Court next month, police said. He has been charged with

aggravated unlicensed firearm possession, possessing unlicensed ammunition and failing to secure a firearm. The teenage boy's lawyer, Antoinette Fedele, said when he appeared in court on August 6 that he had snapped after years of bullying and the spark had been an argument with another student.

Soft drink leads to charity award for Verna Pannawonica RFDS Fundraising Committee member Verna Barker took out the Charity Award at the Chevron-RFDS Spirit of the West Awards on Saturday night. • Chevron-RFDS Spirit of the West Award winner Peter Hudson, Charity Award winner Verna Barker’s representative Kerry Muir, Corporate Charity Award winner Adrian Roocke and Outstanding Achievement Award winner Lara Dawson.

Verna won the award for her role as the driving force in raising funds for the RFDS through soft drink sales at the Mesa J mine site, totalling $83,000 since 2001. The inaugural awards recognise some of the many unsung heroes throughout Western Australia who are dedicated to and passionate about raising money to support the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Rio Tinto invests in Hope Downs 4 iron ore project Rio Tinto have announced that they have made a $1.6 billion investment into the development of the Hope Downs 4 iron ore project in Western Australia and link with Rio Tinto’s existing rail, power and port infrastructure in the Pilbara. Rio Tinto and its joint venture participant, Hope Downs Iron Ore Pty Ltd, will proceed with the development of the mine at an estimated capital cost of US$1.2 billion (Rio Tinto share US$607 million), to be shared equally by the JV partners. The new open-cut mine will have an annual capacity of 15 million tonnes of high-quality iron ore, with first production anticipated in 2013.


The project is in the south eastern

Pilbara, 30 kilometres north of Newman, and will include permanent staff village for more than 600 personnel, mine dewatering, an open cut shovel and truck mining fleet and wet ore processing infrastructure. Rio Tinto will also commit an additional US$425 million to fully cover the capital cost of the rail, rolling stock and power infrastructure owned by Rio Tinto required for this development. The 52-kilometre spur line connecting to the Lang Hancock Railway will link the mine to Rio Tinto’s existing rail and port infrastructure. Construction is anticipated to commence in early 2011, subject to obtaining necessary regulatory and other approvals.

strong and lasting community relationships. Verna works tirelessly to ensure soft drink vending machines at the mine site remain fully stocked, with 50 cents of every can sold going to the RFDS. Mr Shackleton said Verna was passionate about supporting the RFDS and was always the first to sell raffle tickets coordinated by the fundraising committee. “Verna has built up a team of helpers to ensure soft drink sales continue to generate funds for the RFDS,” he said. “She is always the first to get involved in fundraising activities and inspires her community to join in the effort.” She won a Qantas holiday for two to Phuket in recognition of

his efforts. Other Chevron-RFDS Spirit of the West Awards winners included Peter Hudson (Quairading, overall winner), Lara Dawson (Mukinbudin, outstanding achievement) and Adrian Roocke (Katanning, corporate charity award). Four Spirit of Flynn Awards were also awarded on the night to staff who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in the course of their roles. The winners were medical specialist Dr Rob Radici (from the RFDS Jandakot base), medical officer Dr Gil Ostberg (from the RFDS Meekatharra base), line pilot Captain Rachal Smart (from the RFDS Derby base) and technical officer Jerry Clark (from the RFDS Jandakot base).

Yellow spotted monitor Veranidae is the name given to the family of monitors or goanna. Monitor is a worldwide term while Goanna is strictly an Australian term. This family contains approximately 50 species worldwide, the largest being the Komodo dragon, a massive heavy weight exceeding 3 meters in length. Australia’s largest monitor is the Perente which reaches just over 2 meters and our country has a strong hold on this family with having 27 species. The little guy in the photo (a mere hatchling) is a Yellow spotted monitor and was found in a back yard bird avery in Dampier. One can assume it was looking for lunch.

They grow to 1.4 meters and are a heavily built and robust lizard that is predominantly terrestrial. They live in a variety of habitats from coastal beaches, flood plains, woodlands and grass lands. As adults these guys can stand upright on their hind legs when looking at something, smelling the air or feeling threatened. Male monitors compete for a female by wrestling with its opponent. They will stand on their hind legs and try to throw the opponent off balance or wrestle on the ground till one gives up. This can go on for hours. Surprisingly there appears to be an unwritten set of rules of no biting while competing for females.

Pet Watch Award On the afternoon of 12th August, 4-yearold Chris Luta Jnr and his parents visited Back Beach in Karratha. To Chris’ amazement a duck was resting in one of the rock pools. He went to investigate, expecting the duck to fly off. He was surprised to find it was very weak, unable to fly and only able to waddle a short distance. Chris was concerned and knew he had to help the injured bird so he slowly and gently covered the duck with a towel and picked it up. With the help of his parents, Chris took the duck to S.A.F.E who placed it in the very capable hands of Rose Best from Pilbara Wildlife Association. Rose thought the injured duck, which was very thin and missing flight feathers, had been in this condition for a couple of weeks. With encouragement from Rose, the duck is now eating and putting on weight. In a couple of week’s time it will be released out of town where there is a supply of fresh water.

Preliminary final day 2010, Karratha Kats traveled up to Port Hedland to take on the 2nd placed Port Hedland Rovers. Beautiful day and night for footy. Huge crowd turned out for the game, Karratha brought up a supporters bus to try gain an early edge. And it worked. Kats came out flying......a nothing to lose attitude saw them in front at the first break. Four majors and a great start from Paul Branch-flower in the middle of the ground was just what the Kats needed. However Port Hedland realised Kats had come to play and in the second term showed why they are a favorites for the flag. Rovers keeping Kats goal less and kicking 5 of their own. The home crowd began to errupt. Kats took the foot off and struggled to apply any pressure. The game was on and up for grabs as the two hardest teams in the comp went in to the main break. Score Board reading Port Hedland 6.8.44 Karratha Kats 4.2.26. Kats needed to lift their pressure or it would be season over and a long trip home. Revived after the half time break, the Kats tackling and

Sensational efforts came from Jason Keals, providing an important target at centre half forward, Mick Brennan in the ruck, and Adam Finn with countless spoils and run out of the back line all night. Scores all tied at the final break Rovers 7.9.51 Kats 8.3.51. Last role of the dice for both teams as neither were taking any backward steps. Some huge tackles and big hits in the final term bringing both teams supporters to the edge of theirs seats and struggling to trouble the scorer. Finally the Rovers drew first blood, kicking two goals within 5 minutes late in the quarter. This seemed to be enough but Kats gave one last surge as big 'Jabba' Mcmanus kicked two of his own, bringing his tally to

BMX Olympian to compete in Karratha By Nick Muller The Karratha BMX Club is busy preparing to host the third and final round of the 2010 North West Championships. The track is being rolled, the canteen is stocked, the Club grounds have been tidied and the President is pumped. The weekend of September 11 will see riders from across the Pilbara travel to Karratha to test their skills on the Karratha track. The Karratha Club is expecting over 150 riders to compete for the title of North West Champion 2010. The popularity of this event has grown over the last couple of years with riders from Perth and Geraldton hearing how well run these events are and deciding to travel up and see for themselves. This year will see Australian Olympian Luke Madill come to Karratha to compete and also hold coaching clinics. Luke is well known in BMX circles for building a replica of the Beijing BMX track in his backyard so that he could practise for the Olympics. Madill has been riding BMX for a number of years and now puts back into the sport by coaching up and coming riders as well as competing. The last round in Tom Price


• Toby Muller on the track training hard for the NW Championships

saw ten elite riders battling to get through to the final eight and the chance of winning the round. With Madill and several other elite riders travelling to Karratha there is the promise of some fast and furious racing with riders pushing it to the limit with the hope of victory. This is an excellent opportunity for the people of Karratha and surrounding areas to see some top class BMX action.
