End of the road Heartbreak as Balaklava school bus operators are latest to lose contract By Les Pearson AFTER 26 years servicing local school bus routes, there was no farewell party, no flowers, not even a thank you note. Just a brief, blunt letter was sent to school bus operators Barry Taylor and Garry Simon on Friday, advising them they had lost their local bus route contracts after the State government awarded them to a large Victoria-based company. Balaklava’s other school bus operator, Buses R Us made no comment to the Plains Producer. Riverton’s Lower North Coaches will tender for its contract next month. The Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS) elected to go to a tender process this year, allown Barry Taylor (left) and Garry Simon already have their buses on the market

ing bus contractors nationwide to apply for South Australian school bus route contracts. It took all of one sentence for DECS to say after all those years, Taylor and Simon no longer were contractors for the bus routes, as of 2012. “You can’t get much blunter than that,” Mr Simon said. “After 26 years, that’s how you’re informed.” Mr Simon said the pair knew DECS was going to a tender process but believed they were a strong chance to win the contracts again. “The incumbent contractors were led to believe they had an advantage but as it’s turned out, they didn’t,” he said. n Continued Page 4

More pain for communities supporting our State

HOW much more pain can our State government inflict on country communities? This is the government that attacks our country hospitals and health system, does little to improve local infrastructure like water, power and roads – yet relies massively on billions of dollars generated by the farming sector. Real money from the farming families of kids who travel the dusty roads on our school bus fleet.

This latest attack on hard-working local business people, those who employ others, shop locally and support their communities in so many ways, is just plain disgusting. And it comes from the State government department headed by the man who is Premier-in-waiting. Jay Weatherill was in Balaklava in March to inspect our schools during the “amalgamation” fiasco. You can bet Mr Weatherill and his department chiefs

Council to discuss Auslink payment arrangements for the Bowmans Intermodal Expansion project involving the Federal government’s Auslink Grant Program will be discussed at tonight’s Wakefield Regional Council meeting. The issue of the payment arrangements has been an ongoing saga from the start of the year, although concerns were reignited at last month’s council meeting regarding figures in council’s 30, 60 and 90 day debtors. In a report published in the August meeting agenda, submitted collaboratively by corporate services manager,

Steve Jonas, and infrastructure services manager, David Hassett, the funding arrangements are clarified. Also on the agenda for tonight, Balaklava Area Committee chairperson, Terry Williams, will update council on the status of several projects, including the Balaklava Skate Park, Shamus Liptrot Memorial Cycling Trail and the Moody Estate Wetlands. Community development officer, David Woodroofe, will also provide information on funding of the skate park, as requested at last month’s council meeting. Full reports next week.

New job is in the wind RENEWABLE energy remains a high priority, with Central Local Government Region seeking a Regional Windfarm Liaison Officer. It comes following confirmation of funding assistance from Renewables SA to respond to the rapid expansion of the local wind energy industry. CLGR chair, James Maitland, said it was now a case of finding the right fit for the job, involving design, construction, noise, land management and information issues. Other renewable energy opportunities could also be investigated.

CREATING the mosaic (from left) Narelle Roberts, Tash Truscott, Carmen Kells, Jillian D’Cruze, Gabrielle Silvester.

Everyone gets it together at Blyth Blyth Progress Association held a mosaic day under the Blyth Primary School shelter as part of a Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal grant received to redevelop Padnaindi Reserve. The grant was provided for a new fence to surround the grassed area at Padnaindi with the theme being “Farming – A Way of Life – A Common Thread”. As part of the fence, 35 members of the community came together last Sunday to mosaic three fence panels depicting district vegetation, flowers and

Janet Zweck reports: native animal life. The third panel showed the name Padnaindi Reserve. The remaining fence will be of steel cut outs of many farming activities. Blyth upper Primary School students prepared tiles and Jillian D’Cruze created the artwork for this mammoth task. After a few hiccups in the morning the tilers were well on the way to completing the colourful mosaic panels. All enjoyed a sausage sizzle

and ice cream for lunch to keep the adrenalin going to complete their special animal or flower being created. By 5pm the final bit of tile was laid and surprisingly, the panels looked like the artwork underneath. Blyth Progress Association would like to thank all those who attended to complete this project and to the Blyth Primary School for use of its facilities. Blyth Progress Association feels very proud to belong to such a caring and productive community to achieve such a feat.

Export sheep held in local yards DEPENDING on where you stand on the controversial issue of live export trading, you would have either breathed a sigh of relief or despair following Federal parliament’s decision to vote down legislation to ban the practise. The vote was held days before 67,000 sheep were unloaded on Friday and Saturday after the vessel carrying them struck technical difficulties last week. The sheep now have to stay on land for the next two weeks at both the Two Wells and Nasser feedlots. The sheep were due to be exported to the Middle East after being loaded on August 9. Last week the sheep were unloaded from Outer Harbour and put back onto feedlots. Animals Australia and RSPCAAustralia, who were campaigning to bring the sheep back to Australian shores, both said the government’s decision to vote down the legislation was bitterly disappointing. RSPCA Australia CEO, Heather Neil, said if MPs had been allowed to vote with their conscience rather than along party lines, things could have been different.

Les Pearson reports “MPs cannot shy away from the fact a vote for live export is a vote for animal cruelty,” she said. “Every year Australian animals are sent to countries where laws do not protect them from cruelty. The vast majority are slaughtered while fully conscious.” The Plains Producer spoke to a quality control worker, who helped load the ship earlier this month, and unload it on the weekend. The worker asked to remain anonymous. Part of his job is to ensure animals boarding the boat are sound for export, without visible defect and look in good health. Overall, the people in charge of exporting the sheep take due care when handling them. “They’re really careful about it, as it only takes one bit of footage to get out and it would kill the whole trade,” he said. He said media reports of workers throwing sheep overboard into the water were ridiculous.

“That sort of thing would not be allowed to happen anywhere in or around Australia,” the worker explained. Australia’s two peak animal welfare bodies said despite the result, a big step had been taken towards the ultimate end of the live export trade. The worker said if the government chose to end live exports, it would severely damage the economy, although he acknowledged animal welfare group concerns are not about what happens in Australia. “Their biggest concern is what happens when they get to where (the animals) are going and how they’re dealt with there,” he said. “There are a lot of Australian slaughterhouses run by Australians at the manufacturing end now compared to 15 or 20 years ago, so it is a lot better than what it was.” Despite the legislation being voted down, two federal MPs, Independent, Andrew Wilkie and Green, Adam Bandt, have vowed to keep up the fight to end the live export trade.

NEWS v Balaklava RACING CLUB IN THE HOME STRAIGHT WITH CUP PREPARATIONS

It’s going to be another big hit! Sally Crowther reports: It’s only one more week until the biggest annual event held in Balaklava. As most locals and keen race-goers know, next Wednesday, August 31, is Balaklava Cup day. If you take a drive past the soon to be packed Balaklava race course, you will already see the track lined with marquees. • Mallala resident and Balaklava ChemPlus employee Suzie Curnow will be at the Cup next week. She was trackside yesterday for modelling duties – and wasted no time showing (from left) Tim Daly, Sam Rayner, and Terry Jessen how to handle a sledge hammer. Balaklava Racing Club CEO, Doug Hall, said staff have been working hard getting the course and surrounds ready for more than 12, 000 people from both city and surrounding country regions. “We have erected the 67 marquees, getting everything up and ready,” Doug said. VIP tents also have to be set up and installed with power, water and light. Not only is there physical work to be done, but also bookings to finalise, along with last minute hospitality and liquor licensing issues. “We also have quite a few people call up for general enquiries in the lead up,” Doug said. General admission tickets are still available. This week will also keep organisers busy by confirming VIP attendance and setting up the TAB marquees. A big contingent of local people will be working amongst many others behind the scenes. “We have more than 500 people working at the event, 100 of them locals,” Doug said. “We try to involve the local community as much as we can, and to compensate their time we donate to their local clubs.” With 60 security staff, 20 traffic controllers, 30 gate staff and 92 TAB operators, they are well prepared for the day. But with an extravagant event such as this, there is one thing to follow – the cleanup. Balaklava Lions club is undertaking the big cleanup on Thursday, September 1, and any extra volunteers would be welcome. The cleanup will start at 8am. If you are interested, contact Lions president Warren Durdin on 0429 123 004.

‘Fight for local business,’ urges Griffiths

Steven Griffiths, MP

DISAPPOINTED best sums up the feelings of Member for Goyder, Steven Griffiths, after being informed Balaklava school bus contractors, Garry Simon and Barry Taylor, lost their contract to large, Victoria-based operator, Australian Transit Enterprises last week. The decision will end 26 years of service the pair have committed to the region’s schools and rip a large chunk of operating income out of their business. Sadly, it is a similar story right across the state. “The decision by the Minister Weatherill and the Education Depart-

ment to take school bus run contracts away from family businesses and give them to a corporate bus business has impacted across many parts of South Australia,” Mr Griffiths said. “I had been hopeful that the Adelaide Plains region would have been safe, but the confirmation last week that Australian Transit Enterprises has been awarded Balaklava based contracts is devastating for good people like Gary and Barry who have been looking after the transport needs of our young people for decades.” It has hit these family-owned businesses right where it hurts.

“To be competitive for this latest tender, which will run for 15 years, existing school bus operators spent a lot of money working with an accounting firm to trim their price as much as possible while still allowing a small profit to be made- sadly, this effort has been wasted,” Mr Griffiths confirmed. He said the State government has taken little interest in the concerns of rural regions. “A rally in Adelaide four weeks ago involving about 85 school buses and several hundred people on the steps of Parliament House was designed to make Minister Weatherill and the

Rann Labor Government understand that these decisions were wrong,” Mr Griffiths said. “Sadly, we all now know that they are not listening.” He insisted the community to get behind Mr Simon and Mr Taylor’s cause and fight the decision. “I would urge the school communities to get behind family businesses by contacting the Minister for Education and complaining about this decision before it is too late,” Mr Griffiths said. “We all have a responsibility to get involved in fighting for our local businesses.”

New buses will be sold • From Page 1 “It stated in some of the screed we got, that if you had a clean service record, they would like to see those people continue on with the service and give them every opportunity to negotiate. “That just hasn’t been the case.” DECS makes regular mention in its school bus contract tender process documents of a benchmark figure, the ideal cost to buy a bus and operate it on the respective routes. “Nothing was mentioned on what financial terms they were basing their costs on for their benchmark,” Mr Simon said. He said he developed their costs based on financing a much higher quality vehicle over a shorter period, which he believed was realistic given road conditions and general wear and tear.

I can’t imagine this new company putting money into the local sporting clubs or supporting the shops up the street. – GARRY SIMON

He later learned the benchmark figures were developed based on buying cheap, imported buses and using them over a period of 10 years. “It takes us out of the playing field for a start,” Mr Simon said. Both men were frustrated with the department for providing what they believe was misleading information. “They stood up and quoted at the seminars that not necessarily the

lowest tender will get the contract,” Mr Simon said. “It would be judged on the merits of your past record, current situation and your community involvement. “Not one of those things has stood up.” Mr Taylor said in over two decades, they had a spotless service record but the decision had been made. “It’s come down to the dollars the other crowd has put in and they feel they can run a business here on what they’ve submitted,” he said. Mr Simon has discussed the issue with Member for Goyder, Steven Griffiths. “We talked for a great deal of time but his hands were tied to a certain degree,” he said. Mr Griffiths’ advice was to get the local school councils to petition

against what’s happening. “From my point of view, it’s a huge loss for the local community,” Mr Simon said. “Not only did we supply a great service to all the local schools but also the charter work we did for private groups and sporting bodies. “The town’s never had anything like this before. “For a community of this size, we thought it was a huge progressive step forward. “I can’t imagine this new company putting money into the local sporting clubs or supporting the shops up the street.” The two new buses, which only arrive in April, must now be sold before the end of the year. “We’ve got to get rid of them,” Mr Taylor said. Their contracts expire at the end of the school year.

Mismanaged tender process says Brokenshire:

‘Freeze trading on contracts’

FAMILY First MLC, Rob Brokenshire, has described the State government’s school bus route contract system as one of the most mismanaged tender processes he has seen. He demanded the government freeze trading on school bus contracts last week, with a vast majority being awarded to Victorian company Australian Transit Enterprises (ATE). “This would be one of the most concerning and mismanaged tender processes I have seen in my years in parliament,” Mr Brokenshire said. “To me, the last thing we want in regions is losing the potential for our local bus operators to be viable. “The risk raised to me is we could see the absolute majority of these businesses without contracts. “It’s unwarranted and not in the interest of the regions.” He said if the private contractors lost their contracts, it would really hurt a number of local businesses around the state and have a ripple effect on their community. “Local communities rely upon the bus companies for public transport that is sadly lacking in their regions – and those bus

companies in turn rely upon the baseline of a Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS) school bus contract to be viable,” he said. “What it does do is it gives them the cash flow to maintain a sufficient fleet and provide those special community services. “The problem is the government is being short-sighted and not seeing the importance of small businesses in the regions.” Mr Brokenshire said he was unsure why the State government was electing to hand the contracts to the interstate company after questioning the budget and finance committee on the issue. “We didn’t get a clear cut answer on why they’ve gone this way,” he said. Mr Brokenshire demanded a regional impact statement at the bare minimum. “The government hasn’t looked across government at their responsibilities and when we questioned them, they hadn’t done a regional impact statement, which I believe is in breach of government policy,” he said.

“I firmly believe the best thing the government can do is go back to the drawing board because they’ve made a fundamental mistake in going down the way of allowing a Victorian business to come in and take over a large number of our rural and regional school bus services. “It is particularly galling that in good faith some companies kept providing the service without a contract in expectation of being awarded the new contract, then finding out they’ve been tossed aside for an interstate operator.” He assured local contractors he would be persistent in carrying the issue, launching a petition for regional communities to support and submit to the State government. “I would encourage anyone who wants to assist us with that to contact my parliamentary office and we can send them out,” Mr Brokenshire said. “They should also contact Minister Weatherill and tell him it’s not a good start to his premiership that is about to occur. “I’ll be continuing to apply pressure to the government because I don’t think this has been handled properly.” To access a petition form, contact Mr Brokenshire’s office on 1800 182 097.

“We’ve been picking kids up from the day they went to kindy to the day they finished high school,” Mr Simon said. “The rapport with the kids and the parents, how do they put a price on that? “We were led to believe that held some weight in the negotiations. “It didn’t help one bit.” Mr Taylor and Mr Simon’s respective plans for the future have also taken a hit. “I haven’t really had time to think about it,” Mr Taylor said. “The first thing Gary and I need to do it get rid of these two new buses.” “For the two of us, they’ve changed our lives,” Mr Simon added. “My retirement and future years I planned for has all been shot.” What’s do you say?

Riverton waits WHILE Balaklava bus operators Garry Simon and Barry Taylor have already lost their contracts to Australian Transit Enterprises (ATE), Riverton’s Lower North Coaches faces a nervous wait with its contracts going to tender next month. Lower North Coaches director, Leon Schwarz, has owned the company with wife, Dianne, for about 20 years. Mr Schwarz said having seen the loyalty and excellent service Taylor and Simon provided to the community, he was extremely concerned his contracts would see the same fate. “The State government’s perceived loyalty to rural communities has been shot down,” he said. Petitions are already circulating through Riverton, the community taking great interest in the issue. “I have had lots of people talking to me down the street,” Mr Schwarz said. “I’m happy to explain things as I’m getting more nervous about what’s happening.”. He said without the school bus contracts, the company, which employs 16 local people, would not survive. “If we don’t win the contracts, I would be very tempted to sell up,” Mr Schwarz said.

Combined school choirs tuning up District School News • Balaklava Primary School choir members are warming up the ‘vocalisers’ in preparation for their concert at the Festival Theatre on September 21. The students will be singing in a combined school choir, along with students from Mallala and Blyth Primary Schools. Good luck and have fun. • Blyth Primary’s Year 7 students headed off on Monday on a three day Careers Camp in Adelaide. The group started at Regency Park Tafe, and visited many other workplaces including Edinburgh Base and Villi’s Pie Factory. I hope you were allowed to have a taste test. The camp is a great idea as children need to keep their career options open and experience a variety of workplaces.

NEWS v District n CLARE AND GILBERT VALLEYS COUNCIL CAPITAL WORKS PROGRAM:

DISTRICT POLICE NEWS

Spending on town projects SEVERAL buildings throughout the Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council (CGVC) district will receive a needed boost after the asset fund allocation list was finalised at last week’s council meeting. CGVC allocates $500,000 in its budget to spend on capital works on the districts public buildings. Heading the list is $150,000 for the new Stockport public toilets. The project was rated as a high priority, with current facilities deemed non compliant.

The community has requested the new public toilets be built near the town hall. Auburn Insitute was allocated $80,000 to revitalise the building in an effort to attract greater usage. Internal and external painting, sanding and sealing of the floor and improved paving are some of the revamp jobs required at the hall. Auburn’s public toilets were also allocated $7000 for refurbishment and repainting. Manoora Institute and the recreation ground were pro-

vided with $70,000 and $15,000 respectively for maintenance and revamp work, including a kitchen upgrade for the institute and power upgrades for the recreation ground. Riverton Caravan Park will receive $5000 for a new access ramp to the manager’s office, with the current ramp noncompliant.

CGVC chief executive officer, Roy Blight, said council staff developed the list. “The recommendations are a result of assessments by council’s works department, identified as priorities,” he said. “There is a regional spread and it’s part of what I think a regional council represents, is having a bit in it for a range of areas. “In the absence of any moves to rationalise the asset portfolio of the council, it think it’s a reasonable start.”

campaign to appoint a regional waste co-ordinator to help the region move towards reducing waste to landfill and improving cost efficiencies and resource sharing between councils. “It’s probably just a matter of getting it better organised,” CLGR chair, James Maitland said. As an example, Wakefield Regional Council intends on going to a three-bin system in 2012/13, which would include a green waste pickup service. Mr Maitland said getting a number of nearby councils involved in the system at the same time would be an ideal target for the co-ordinator. “It’s a matter of getting things like that co-ordinated across all the groups,”

Zero Waste SA has agreed to assist with funding for the position, which ideally would be taken on by a council officer in the region. Mr Maitland said the money could then be used to back up the person taking on the extra responsibilities. “The quantity of money is really not enough to employ a person full time,” he explained. In the mean time, a consultant has been on call. The coordinator will provide a dedicated resource to councils over a two-year period with key tasks around gaining greater consistency and collaboration in areas such as community education.

Assistant Commissioner Grant Stevens addresses the media, with the drug haul and cash displayed.

Drugs linked to local property

A RURAL property near Port Wakefield was used to produce more than 200 kilograms of cannabis, which was prepared to go to interstate buyers before it was seized from a warehouse in Adelaide by police last week. With a street value of about $2 million, it was one of the biggest drug hauls in the state’s history. SAPOL Drug Investigation Branch Detectives searched a Thebarton address, arresting two people and allegedly locating the cannabis in vacuumed sealed bags concealed behind a false wall. About $22,000 cash was also concealed within a cupboard. A further $167,000 cash was also allegedly found at another premises in Mile End. Drug Investigation Branch Detective Inspector, Derryn Phillips, said police uncovered evidence of preparations being made for another large crop but investigations are continuing. “A property was searched between Port Wakefield and Lochiel in relation to the significant seizure. There was no one present at the time,” Detective Phillips said. The investigation in relation to that property and a number of others is continuing. A 51-year-old man from Thebarton and a 58-year-old woman from Mile End have been arrested and charged with trafficking a large commercial quantity of a controlled drug and unlawful possession. They have have been refused police bail and faced the Adelaide Magistrates court last week.

NEWS v District LEWISTON TEEN AND HIS TRINITY TEAM CREATE A NEW ‘SPACER’ TO HELP ASTHMA SUFFERERS:

n MP”s blast:

‘Little to change’ in new hospital funding

Our new inventors

Federal Member for Grey, Rowan Ramsey, warns very little will change in regional and county hospitals as a result of the Federal government’s new deal on hospital funding. “One of the essential commitments of the Rudd/Gillard plans for hospitals had been Federal funding and local management,” he said. “Unbelievably, State Health Minister, John Hill, has managed to convince his Federal counterpart Nicola Roxon that South Australia’s management of regional and rural hospitals satisfies local management requirements of the new health deal. “How all of country SAcan be lumped into one region and administered from Adelaide be considered local management, defies belief. “(Last) Wednesday night in a speech to the AMA in Parliament House, Prime Minister Julia Gillard claimed the latest hospital agreement will stop the central administration of hospitals. “It will not! It is a complete denial of truth for SA. Regional hospitals have in recent years been stripped of their local board structures, replaced with Health Advisory Councils whose role is to advise only, with no power over the operation of local facilities. Mr Ramsey said country residents have been appalled and bewildered as local services such as birthing, surgery and even the ability to reset broken arms, services their parents enjoyed, progressively were withdrawn from their hospitals. “Health Advisory Committees (HACS) have no teeth because they have no control of funding and are even required to seek Country Health clearance for public statements.”

Bec O’Brien reports

more from Bec in your Two Wells & District T Read FREE Echo, out September 14 Lewiston resident and 16-year-old Trinity College Year 11 student Adam Sheridan has the potential to help millions of asthma sufferers across the globe after winning the ABC’s New Inventors 2011 grand final show. Adam was part of a sevenmember school team – named BaCoN after elements on the periodic table -– who won the show’s Bright Spark Award and $4,000 in cash and prizes for their design and prototype of an asthma “spacer.” Other members are Damon Smith, Brandon Matthews, Michael Lynch, Daniel Woods, Liam Scott and Matthew O’Malley. They received support and mentoring by Engineers from BAE Systems Australia and teacher and coach, Sue O’Malley. The team hopes to commercially produce their spacer once it has undergone clinical trials. The project started in September last year after the group was encouraged to enter a FIRST Lego League competition. As part of the competition, the group had to design and make a Lego robot that could complete a variety of intricate tasks. The robot won the competition and then went on to win the equivalent at national level. This win saw them fly to St Louis, Missouri, USA in April to participate in the FIRST World Festival where they received a World Innovative Solution award for their research project, and placed third overall. Their research project is where the idea for a more

effective asthma spacer was born. As part of their initial FIRST competition entry, the team had to come up with a research project centered on helping the body. “We were actually stumped for an idea,” Adam laughed. “We had to do something that helps the body. “And because Damon and Matt (team members) both have asthma we thought about ways that we could help. “We talked about how they didn’t take their spacers with them because they took up too much room and thought we could do something with that. “We tried to think of ideas of how to collapse it.” Loosely based on the philosophy of the Tupperware collapsible containers, the groups’ Space Saver Spacer is made of medical grade silicone and can reduce in size to about that of a saucer, making

it lightweight and portable. Traditional asthma spacers are made of rigid Perspex and are about the size of a one-litre bottle. Spacers are designed to help hold asthma medication, making inhalation more effective. Adam believes the Space Saver Spacer does this more effectively. “It is definitely better because with the normal spacers, as they are made of plastic, they have a lot of static electricity and a lot of the medicine sticks to it,” Adam explained. “As this is made of silicone it is more resistant to static electricity and more medicine gets through because it doesn’t stick to it.” Asthma Foundation SA CEO David Benson said a spacer acted as a holding chamber for medication until it was breathed into the lungs, and team BaCoN’s design had

the potential to help thousands of asthma sufferers. “Such inventions as the Trinity College Space Saver Spacer will significantly improve the lifestyles of asthma patients,” Mr Benson said. Trinity College Head, Nick Hately, said the team was an inspiration for fellow students at the school and was thrilled their invention had the potential to help others. “The college is delighted the team is using their passion and talents to help the wider community,” Mr Hately said. “They have identified an area of concern and gone out and done something positive about it. They are excellent role models for other young people.” The seven-member group has known each other since their first days together in Reception. “When we found out we

won it, it was pretty exciting and overwhelming,” Adam said. “We just didn’t believe it, it was kind of hard hitting (and) it took a while for it to sink in. “The whole competition took a lot of hard work. It was very strenuous but overall it was very rewarding. “It showed us a lot of hard work brings good things.” Filmed in Sydney, the ABC’s The New Inventors show was an amazing experience, Adam said, one with the potential to launch their idea to global companies. “We are hoping to get this produced but first we have to get a clinical trial,” he said. “We also have to get a patent for the product as at the moment we only have an innovative patent, which is a patent for the idea.” Adam said the team hoped to secure the services of a group in Perth to conduct the clinical trial, with six or seven global companies looking to endorse the spacer. Next year Adam has lined up psychology, music and drama, and information technology subjects, and after completing Year 12 hopes to go on to university to study “multiple things”.

NEWS v District

‘Red Dog’ a hit with our Mallala stars Mallala residents were thrilled to see themselves on the big screen after their cameo in the Australian-made film, ‘Red Dog’. The feel-good film tells the story of a real-life red kelpie that became an icon in the late 1970s. The film is a hit, taking $5.44 million in its first two weeks. The movie, which took five weeks to film in and around Adelaide for five weeks last year, stars Josh Lucas and Australian actress, Rachel Taylor. Ros Franks was one of the Mallala residents cast as an extra. “It was a great experience. We started filming in April and finished up early May,” Ros said. Ros, who played one of the townsfolk in the background in both a pub and cemetery scene, enjoyed seeing what goes on

Revving up 50 years! Even though the Mallala Motor Sport track, didn’t officially celebrate its birthday on Friday August 19, organisers still had 50 years of memories to celebrate. Track owner, Clem Smith, 84, raced in the first meet held at the Mallala track in 1961, winning his class in his FJ Holden. “The track has a lot of memories, I’m proud of it and it is here to stay,” Mr Smith said. Instead of holding a big celebration, the club instead held its usual club race meeting. Mr Smith praised his staff who helped him keep it going over the past five decades.

Police watch rail crossings As part of National Rail Safety Week, local police will be on the look out for road users who take risks at railway crossings. Police are joining with the Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board to promote rail safety. Each year on average, 37 Australian road users die in level crossing incidents. The braking distance of a train can be up to 1-1.5km.

Pet Care

Learning from our companions Children learn through play. Dogs love to play. Our children can, and do, learn from playing with their dogs. “Dogs can play an important part of the development of children in ways that enhance their life experiences,” said veterinary adviser, Dr Peter Higgins. “Research has shown children are more likely to have healthy levels of self-esteem than children who don’t own pets. “These values continue and develop in adult life.” Dogs NSW encourages families to teach their children responsible ownership of their pets. This duty has a positive impact on the self-esteem of our youngest members of society. When children are instructed and permitted to undertake age appropriate responsible activities in the care for a pet, they learn far more than how to fill a water bowl. Children are able to learn about dependence, care, giving and respect for other living beings. They also learn about themselves and that it is appropriate to serve others for a better family unit. Pet dogs can provide some valuable lessons in life for children, contributing to their understanding of the world around them. Children exposed to pets at an early age generally have a great capacity for empathy and caring for others’ feelings. “Remember though, that young children should be supervised at all times when in the presence of a dog,” said Dr Higgins. “It is the responsibility of parents and other adults to involve their children with the care and maintenance of the family pet dog. “Preschool children need help in learning to interpret the play and attack signs of pet animals.”

Balaklava inspired Relay for Life teams set $65,000 target by Sharon Mid North Relay For Life is happening again this year and the committee is looking for as many teams as possible. Their goal is to raise $65,000 – and with the assistance of major sponsor Mid North Real Estate, the more teams that enter the closer they will get to the target. This year’s relay is at Clare Oval on November 12 and 13. The committee held its first ‘teams meeting’ on Tuesday, August 2, with positive response from those who were there. This year’s committee is

new and members are keen to get as many people involved as they can. So far, eight teams have registered and started fundraising – with some moving their cash target higher from what they first set. “We need everyone to sign on and get cracking with it,” teams leader, Michelle Jaeschke said. Fundraising ideas were presented to team captains present and include raffles, sausage sizzles, morning teas, garage sales and more. The aim for each team is to raise money and awareness

but also have fun, celebrate, remember and fight back. There is no minimum amount for teams to raise, but a goal of $100 per person is achievable for all. This year’s Relay For Life is set to be great fun, with plenty of entertainment, round the clock walking and a touching ‘survivors’ lap. The committee invites all to the opening ceremony when survivors will walk the first lap of the relay – the Survivors and Carers Lap. If you are a survivor or a carer of someone who has fought

cancer or is still fighting, this is your time to be recognised. Survivors and carers need to register before 1.30pm to take part in the walk before a survivor’s afternoon tea upstairs in the Lifestyle Centre at 2.30pm. HOW TO participate: For more information or to be part of the ‘Survivors Lap’ call Sheryl Marks on 0427 800 899, Jane Sandey on 0417 896 938 or Katrina Wilkop on 0417 620 720, or email rsmsmarks@ bigpond.com • For teams, go to Mid North Relay For Life at http://www. relayforlife.org.au/

BALAKLAVA’S relay team, Ovasholdaboldaholdas raised $18,000 in the 2009 event. Their motivation – then and now – was team captain, Sharon Hoepner, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. Sharon stopped at nothing to raise funds and awareness for the disease. Her ‘can do’ attitude gave her nine years from diagnosis, where she had some of the best times of her life. Sadly, Sharon lost her battle against cancer in July, but her memory will be carrired by the Ovasholdaboldaholdas team members, who continue the relay journey. The Ovasholdaboldaholdas, with great support from the Balaklava and surrounding communities, are fired up for the relay. So far, the team has had great success with a slice drive, Mother’s Day walk, the sale of team merchandise and chocolate frogs. Hummocks Netball Club held a trading table with all proceeds going to the team, and the same day Balaklava Pizza and Pasta donated $2 from every pizza sold. The team plans to hold a cake stall at Balaklava show in September as well as a pre-season 20/20 twilight cricket match. They are keen to keep Sharon’s legacy and not only raise money for the cause but awareness into the disease. Team members include Abbie Tiller, Hannah Hoepner, Kimberley Hoepner, Kelly and Carl Leach, Terissa Smart, Peter, Tania, Daniel, Josh and Jacob Butterfield, Brooke and Dylan Wood and Leigh Wright.

THE Ovasholdaboldaholdas celebrate their fund raising and relay effort in 2009.

n CLARE AND GILBERT VALLEYS COUNCIL AWAITS COMMUNITY COMMENT:

Push to expand ‘dry zones’ WHILE talk of implementing dry zones in Balaklava presently appears to have “dried up,” a group of Clare locals is looking to bring in big changes to the town’s current dry zone arrangements. The Clare Dry Zone Working Party submitted recommendations including every public area within the residential rating zone boundary of the town be classed as a dry zone between the hours of 9pm and 8am. Apex (Sanders) Park would become a 24-hour dry zone. The group suggested these zones stay in place for five years. Clare and Gilbert Valley Council chief executive officer, Roy Blight, said the community would

need consulting before drastic changes are put in place. “The initial thought is that these are fairly substantial changes from the dry zone working party,” he said. “To make sure we bring the community on board, the proposal is we will put an application in to the State government for a one-year extension of our current arrangement and in that time we will do a review and public consultation.” Mr Blight said the working party would need to get opinions from central business district traders, recreation park users and the broader community. “In terms of the recommen-

dation of the entire area being a dedicated dry zone, it would have neighbourhood implications as well,” Mr Blight said. The decision to apply for a 12 month extension of the current zones was made at last week’s council meeting. “At this stage, we’re keeping an open mind and looking forward to the community feedback,” Mr Blight said. “Because it is such a substantial change, our view is that in order to get on board we would like to see some more views on it.” • Dry zones for Balaklava remain a possibility, with negotiations between police and council continuing.

Heritage Highlights

We are all aware of the totally inappropriate styles of clothing worn by the gentry when the early settlers came from England to Australia. They had spent several months at sea and arrived in Botany Bay in the middle of what was probably a typical Aussie summer. The men wore stockings and tight-fitting breeches, heavy jackets, greatcoats, beaver hats and buckled shoes, while the women were dressed in copious layers of material, complete with petticoats and bustle. While the women convicts wore whatever they had or could scrounge, Cedric Flower’s book tells us that “the first wave of male convicts was issued with jackets and waistcoats of blue cloth or kersey (coarse ribbed cloth of wool), duck trousers, coarse linen shirts, yarn stockings, and woollen caps.” By 1810, convict clothes were

of male convicts” - suggesting the coarse linen material continue to be sent out from England and the making of the garments would “usefully occupy the women at the Female Penitentiary at Parramatta.” In 1820 in Moreton Bay, Queensland, convicts wore coarse yellow cloth with “felon” stamped on the shirt back. Captain Logan “is said to have devised a trouser that buttoned down the sides and could be changed without removing leg-irons.” The yellow clothing was also standard convict attire in Tasmania; those in Western Australia apparently had individual numbers on the front and back of their coats. Over time, the style of dress for all classes of people changed dramatically, and it was often difficult to differentiate between free settlers and convicts, as clothing styles were adapted to suit the climate. In

still being imported, but there were many complaints about the clothing being inadequate. Under Governor Macquarie, the convicts “retained for government service were...issued with ‘slops’...made from ‘Parramatta cloth’ of coarse wool with distinctive style...probably dyed yellow and decorated with broad arrows”. In 1822 the Commissioner reported the letters and broad arrows were painted onto the suits to discourage robbery and the sale of garments. In 1829 a board was set up “to assess the clothing needs

Why didn’t you just sleep, play Xbox, watch Days of Our Lives or something? Finally, his current hit on the charts, “Marry You”, also has me clawing at my ears like I’m suffering from that pain you get when you’re descending slowly in a plane. Firstly, you’re a psycho who will kill yourself over a lady, Bruno, so getting someone to marry you, let alone date you, is unrealistic. Secondly, once married, it is apparent you are supremely lazy, and will do none of the house work, which is highly important in modern relationships. His music is tiresome, tryhard bulldust and any man caught playing it to impress a lady should strongly reconsider his man-hood. Don’t get me started on Adele.

1839, “D.Jones & Co. announced duck, canvas and moleskin clothing, Scotch caps, glazed and straw hats as well as Parramatta or Factory cloth.” Items listed as “summer slop clothing” were aimed at poorer settlers and those masters obliged to provide clothing for convict servants. Convicts in private employ were expected to be clean, and “decently dressed for divine service on Sundays”. By the 1840s, there had been many changes, as the gentry began adapting their style. Even Governor Hutt, on a WA “bush visit”, adopted the lighter, more practical garb which also included a fly net! The more elaborate clothing was slowly being phased out for everyday living and kept only for special or formal occasions.

special feature v GILBERT VALLEY TOWNS

Driving from past to present Valley pioneer recognised with Horrocks Highway Clare and Gilbert Valley towns of Tarlee, Rhynie, Auburn, Watervale, Penwortham, Sevenhill and Clare now have the Horrocks Highway running through them. As part of the State government’s rural property addressing process, the Commissioner of Highways has approved a number of road name changes across the state Horrocks Highway, previously called Main North Road, now runs over 260km from Gawler to Wilmington (via Clare). The Wilmington to Quorn road will be part of this. All local councils along the route have agreed to this new name in accordance with a long-standing submission – almost 10 years – from the Mount Horrocks Historical Society. The changes form part of the Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI) roll-out of a standard rural property addressing system across the State, requiring every road to have an official name. DTEI says this process has involved extensive collaboration statewide

JOHN Ainsworth Horrocks was just 28 when he died – and the cottage he built at Penwortham. with local councils and other groups including historical societies and Aboriginal groups. In most cases existing common usage names were suggested and approved. The Mount Horrocks Historical Society website describes John Ainsworth Horrocks as “a pioneer and explorer” who was the first white man to take up land in the area, about 1839. He established the township of Penwortham, named after his home in Lancashire, England.

He built a cottage, now heritage listed and the oldest stone building north of Gawler, which has been restored with the help of government grants, local winemakers and the society. Horrocks was badly injured on September 1, 1846, after an accidental gunshot wound to the mouth when a camel, named Harry, lurched during an expedition to Lake Dutton in the north of the state. A gun held by Horrocks caught on the camel’s pack and discharged,

Horrocks returned to Penwortham but died of gangrene a month later aged just 28 and is buried in St Mark’s Anglican church in the town. Horrocks gave his name to several geographical features such as Horrocks Pass, near Mount Remarkable and Mount Horrocks, near Clare. Harry, a notoriously bad tempered camel, and the first to arrive in the state in 1840 from the Canary Islands, via London, later was “executed” at Horrocks’ request to avoid a repeat incident. • Augusta Highway is the new name for the Port Augusta to Port Wakefield road, commonly referred to as Highway One.

very winter, people travel to warmer climates, either abroad or to northern Australia. But this year, it seems more and more people have headed away. Half of the Owen township has either been, or are going, away. Has our winter been that cold? Or are there other reasons? Balaklava locals Paul and Jenni McBride and children Jason and Tayla, travelled to Darwin to surprise Paul’s father, who was also holidaying, for his 70th birthday. They incorporated the birthday into a three week holiday, doing the tourist things along the way. When in Darwin, they were told they “had to visit the Mindil Beach Markets” and what a surprise when they saw other Mid Northerners Heather Maxwell and Jan Young there too. The ladies had travelled up north on the Ghan for nine days before flying home. And to prove it’s a small world, Heather and Jan ran into Beryl Sandow when touring a national park. Balaklava’s Jenny Long visited daughter Megan in Darwin. As soon as Jenny was back, Rick and Shelley Lamond and children Tyson, Chloe and Stella visited Megan, incorporating a week long family holiday. Don and Valerie Veitch recently cruised from the east side of Australia right around to Fremantle to fly home. And as the world is getting smaller, the Veitch’s were not surprised to see some other Balaklavians, in the form of Kevin and Rosalie Zerk, boarding the ship with them. Don and Rosalie made a deal that what happens on the cruise ship stays on the ship which was a good plan! However they all thought it was hilarious to see the average age of other travellers was more than 75, so the Zerk’s felt very young indeed. Balaklava’s Bronny and Garry Cottle have recently returned from a marathon 8000km road trip of NT and WA, just in time for the Eisteddfod. They travelled to Kununurra, across

I am sure there’s plenty of others from towns around the Plains who have been away. The list is sure to grow, so let me know. It appears many people travelled just because they had the opportunity to do so, incorporating school holidays and not at a busy time of the year for farmers. Others went to warmer climates to visit family or friends and see the sights whilst there. So it wasn’t necessarily to escape our winter, even though it appears that way. In winter, some like it hot under the sun, but I like it hot right by my wood fire. Our summer will be here soon enough.

Olivia’s off to Italy Balaklava basketball sensation, Olivia Thompson is now heading to Italy to showcase her talent. Olivia, 18, was picked amongst four other athletes from the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) to represent Australia at the First Invitational 3x3 Youth World Championship in Rimini, Italy from September 9 to 11. With a huge list of achievements under her belt, Olivia is currently playing for the under 19s in the AIS. “I found out I was invited to represent Australia a couple of weeks ago after training, and I was pretty excited,” Olivia said. This new form of 3x3 basketball is inspired by several forms of streetball played world wide. Sanctioned by FIBA (derives from the French ���Fédération Internationale de Basketball Amateur), 3x3 sees two teams of three players face off on a standard half-court with rules designated to encourage players to showcase their skills and athleticism. FIBA is aiming to make the three-on-three format an Olympic sport by 2020. “There are 24 girl teams and we take on USA, Spain, Greece, China and Russia,” Olivia said. Despite already competing overseas last year for the World Championships in France, Olivia is looking forward to next month’s trip

Having played basketball since she was 10 years old, Olivia has achieved a great deal and intends to take home a reminder from Italy. “Our main goal is to get gold,” she said. While showcasing top level basketball, the world championship will have a fresh, young atmosphere, reflecting both the discipline and the location, with top DJs playing music during the games, numerous skills challenges, and other entertainment and side activities.

Mallala resident, Hannah Jenkin, 14, has been kicking goals to score a place as captain in the SA State under 14 girls soccer team. The team competed in the National Youth Championships in Coff’s Harbour from July 11 to 15. While the team didn’t have a successful tournament, Hannah feels it was a great honour to captain the side. Hannah currently plays for the Adelaide University Women’s State League side under former Westfield Matilda soccer player, Tracey Jenkins. Hannah has been playing competitive soccer for four years and while playing for Gawler Eagles in 2010, she made the State under 13 side which competed in Canberra. Having played with the Gawler Eagles for her first three years, Hannah attributes a lot of her early development to former coach Chris Hogarth. With an immense passion for soccer, Hannah hopes to one day play for Australia as a Matilda, and when her school and soccer commitments allow, she also enjoys playing netball for Mallala.

Nine-a-side carnival showcases teamwork A mixed group of players came together to form the Clare and District Hockey Association which represented the area in the Kadina Nine-a-side Senior Carnival recently. With a very early start, both the women’s and men’s teams were firing. The men did not have to worry about subs, having only nine players for the whole day. The guys had two pools, with top position of each pool playing off in the final. With four games played, they finished second in their pool, just missing out on a chance in the finals. Luckily, the women’s side had three subs, with seven games played for the day

(eight teams in their pool). With the youth in the women’s team, they were very competitive, gaining a spot in the grand final. The final was a draw at full time, which took them into penalty flicks, with Clare and District settling for second overall for the day. A fantastic effort by both teams. It’s always an enjoyable day and a great opportunity to gain experience and play different teams. Thanks go to those who helped organise the teams and umpires for the day, as well as the washing of uniforms, and of course, thanks to the players themselves – well done!

Balaklava ready to take on Hummocks The Peckerettes finished the minor round with a comfortable 24-goal victory against Virginia on Saturday. On home courts, Balaklava were five goals up by the first break and increased this to 12 at the half. After a strong third quarter the Balak girls led by 23, and while they plateaued a little in the last, it was still a strong victory. “Yes, we had a good win,” playing coach, Michelle Williams confirmed. “We dominated the game from the start and the team worked pretty efficiently, especially in the first three quarters. “Our third quarter again was very strong. “I believe this is good preparation for the second semi final.” This clash saw the shooting pair of Cassie Powell and Talia Kruger return as a combination for the first time in eight weeks. Carly Gregor at wing defence displayed great hands-over-the-ball pressure in this contest, while Kruger stood tall at goal attack. The Peckerettes were still missing defender Chelsea Koch, although she is expected back for the second semi final clash with Hummocks. Coach Michelle Wil-

liams was also effective in her role in the defence circle. Ramettes’goal shooter, Julia Starr got the umpires’ nod as best player for the visitors, while the ultra consistent Nicole Aguis showed class in the back court and later in the game as a shooter.

a four-goal quarter time advantage to nine at half time and then to 14 at lemons. “We have enjoyed plenty of versatility on the bench and the ability to keep the girls fresh because of our numbers,” McArdle explained. “This has reflected on the scoreboard. “The girls gradually increased their lead at each of the breaks, although their effort flattened out a little in the last quarter.

“Jane McBride was superb all day even against the height and mobility of Alison Schahinger.” McArdle was also happy with the efforts of Leah Tynan in the mid court, who played her best game for the season, executing well and displaying impeccable passing skills. Emma Laintoll and Shae Walker also were solid in defence. The noteworthy players for the Bomberettes included Ashleigh Koch in the centre, who received best on court honour for Hamley, along with the ultra consistent Pat Mattchoss and Sarah Koch in the goal circle. Final quarter haul not enough for Mallala While Samantha Nicholls wasn’t all that impressed with her own or her team’s effort, Hummocks still claimed a 17 goal win over another finals participant, Mallala. Their six goal quarter time lead, was already out to 18 by the half time whistle and 23 goals at the start of the last quarter. Mallala rallied with a 16-goal-to-10 final term, but were still well beaten.

“Saturday’s match was definitely not the best match that we have played as a team,” Nicholls explained. “I think you could tell that we had the bye the previous week and not a great week on the training track. So we will be looking forward to great training this week before the match against Balaklava. “It was disappointing from my viewpoint because we did some useful things, but also then some absolutely shocking things. “We tried some different combinations as we

Mel Moulds got through a whole game which was a fantastic boost for the ladder leaders. Erin Brundell continuously offered at wing attack and produced a solid game. Mallala coach, Courtney Kerr said despite the loss, she was pleased with her team’s effort. “While we lost by 17, we were quite happy with this,” Kerr said.

“Especially since we had one player ill and couldn’t play, and on top of that had another go down with injury in the second quarter. “Tracy Kennett was outstanding again in the mid court and her drive from defence into attack was a crucial part of our game. “Midge May had a good defensive game in goal defence and worked consistently to keep pressure in the back court.” Mid courter Tracey Kennett was the third placed Magpies’best player in this contest.

Balaklava set up early win over Virginia A1: Balaklava were quick off the mark, grabbing an early lead to win by 24 goals. Both teams started strongly with fast play through the centre. It was a tight, even contest between Balak GK Eliza Cottle and Virginia GS Julia Starr that was the highlight of the quarter. Balak 11, Virg 6 Balaklava came out of the blocks fiercely in the second quarter causing Virginia to make costly mistakes and forcing the turnover from which Balak were then able to score. Sarah Smith (WD) for Virginia led well, presenting good options for her teammates. Balak 25- Virg 13 A particularly strong quarter by Michelle Williams, Balak GD, in the third with many rebounds under the post and multiple intercepts, helping to set up the win for Balak. Virginia were off target with their goals and at the opposite end, Cassie Powell for Balak shot at 100 per cent. Balak 41, Virg 18 After throwing their bibs in the air at three-quarter time, Virginia took to the court with a completely different line up. The new shooters were more accurate and Julia Starr moved to GK, where she was able to take several lovely intercepts. All too late though, as Balak had set up a good win in the early stages of the match and pushed the winning margin out further in the final quarter. Gaynor Tink played a fast flowing game through the center court for Balak to pick up the umpires’ votes. Balak 56, Virg 32 A2: A tight tussle all game, Balaklava pulled away in the final quarter to win 44-36. Both teams came out firing in the first quarter, wanting to get off to a good start but it was Balak who took the honours at quarter time after some brilliant intercepts by GD Alexandra Wilson. Balak 9, Virg 8 Accurate shooting by Balak’s GA Sally Arbon was entertaining to watch but with some hard defensive efforts from the Virginia defences, supply was limited. Further interceptions from Alexandra Wilson saw an increase of ball to the Balak shooters, from which they were then able to capitalise on Virginia’s GS Carissa Buckley, who, playing her second match

Balak 20, Virg 17 Many turnovers by both teams in the initial minutes of the third quarter ended in a Virginia goal and put them right back in contention. Balak GA, Sally Arbon continued to work hard in and around the circle while Balak WA, Cherie Willmer also put in a top effort bringing the ball down the court and offering many options for the Balak attack line. Balak 31, Vir 27 In what was still anyone’s game, Virginia made many changes going into the final quarter and came out strongly with GA, Julia Starr still a strong performer, but it was not to be as Balak pulled away in the second half of the last and posted a good 12-goal win, after a tightly fought game. Balak 44, Virg 36 A3: After starting strongly, Virginia grabbed a 14-goal win. Virginia got off to a strong start with their GS, Carissa Buckly shooting 15 out of her team’s quarter time score of 19. She was moving beautifully in and around the ring, creating many options for the Virginian offensive line and dumbfounding the Balak defenders. Balak’s young defender, Tenayah Renshaw, playing her first game of A3, worked hard and put in a great effort. Balak 7, Virg 19 Balak made some chang-

es at the first break and came out firing in the second, scoring the first three goals of the quarter. Balak’s Alana Pollard, who had moved into C, and WA, Terissa Smart created some great drive down the court and fed well into the goals. Virginia’s shooters maintained their accuracy in what ended as an even quarter on the scoreboard. Balak 24, Virg 36 It was the start of the second half and both teams had made changes to their line-up. Both Balak’s WD, Nikole McCracken and Virginias GD, Tarleah Lamont were great backup and options for their respective teams going forward. WA’s from both teams, Balak’s Terissa Smart and Virginia’s Melissa Wilson, were strong and gave great direction to their teams down the court. Balak managed to peg back Virginia’s lead a little. Balak 39, Virg 49 Both teams again made changes going into the final phase of the match. Balak GS, Tania Robertson presented a tall option in the circle but was let down by some poor delivery. At the other end, Virginia’s Kelly Galley came into the game as another accurate option. Balak faded again in this quarter and Virginia were able to push out to an eventual 14-goal win. Balak 50, Virg 64 A4: Virginia fought to the last whistle, but it was Balaklava who walked

the better team on the day and ran away convincing winners. Balak 47, Virginia 21 A5: Balaklava maintained a strong lead throughout the match, to win 64-21. Despite strong defence from Virginia’s GD, Krystal Doudle, Balak had a strong eight-goal lead by the end of the first quarter. Balak C, Pauline Florence created some lovely drive through the centre, setting up some good plays into the Balak forward line. Balak 13, Virg 5 Balaks GS, Katie Marshall and GA, Shannon Hunt provided great movement through the ring although Virginia’s defence made it harder for the ball to move smoothly down the court. Balak 29, Virg 9 Very accurate shooting by Balak’s goalies continued to widen the gap in the third, however Virginia’s centre court defence remained strong. Balak 44, Virg 17 Great shooting by Balaklava was what eventually secured their win, but Virginia continued to move the ball strongly down the court and were able to maintain their intensity for four quarters. Balak 64, Virginia 21 B grade: After a tight game, Balak Gold ran away with the win. Both teams came out with a fight. Pressure by both teams made it a great contest with even play across the court. Supporters were great and they weren’t to be disappointed. Balak Green (Home) 6, Balak Gold( away) 6 Again both teams came out strongly in the second, and all players were working hard for the ball. Balak Gold was able to pull away on the scoreboard due mainly to the strong shooting and rebounding of Ciara Guy in goals. Balak Green 13, Balak Gold 19 Balak gold continued to build on their lead, but the competition remained fierce and players from both teams were having a red hot go. Some lovely passages of play for Green saw them stay in the game. Balak Green 18, Balak Gold 27 In what had been a tight game until the final quar-

away with a convincing win. Balak scored the first two goals, but Virginia worked hard and was able to match the Balak players all over the court. Play continued evenly throughout the first quarter with Balak being up by one goal at the first break.

Balak 10, Virg 9 Balak started the second quarter well scoring the first four goals unanswered. Virginia worked hard and managed to stop the flow, with many turnovers were created by both teams. Balak’s C, Maddi Veitch worked hard all over the court and Balak were able to take advantage of their opportunities. Balak’s GS, Jasmyn Smith took many strong rebounds and enabled Balak to push ahead by 10 Balak 25, Virg 15 Balak were playing well all over the court but Virginia worked hard and play was fairly even. Balak were able to take advantage of turnovers created by their defences and goalies, who combined well together. Virginia put up a great fight but were unable to match the Balak girls when they went forward, and Balak led by 22 at the final break. Balak 38, Virg 16 Virginia came out fighting in the last, scoring well and restricting Balak’s goal flow. Some great interceptions from Virginia’s GD added to their score and they made Balak work for everything they got, but despite Virginia’s efforts, Balak were

ter, Balak Gold was able to run away with the win. With some excellent performances across the court by players in both teams, the final score didn’t really reflect the tightly fought game and the evenness of these two teams. The future of Balak netball is looking good! Balak Green 24, Balak Gold 36 C1: The Virginia side tried hard all game, not able to peg back Balaklava’s score. Both teams started a little slowly and Balak was the first to settle, being able to keep Virginia scoreless with great defence. Balak 7, Virg 0 In a scrappy second quarter, there were some good intercepts from both teams and everyone was tyring hard. Balak 13, Virg 0 Virginia’s GS was able to score their first goal half way through this quarter, much to the delight of the crowd. Some lovely interceptions from the Balak defensive line made it difficult for Virginia to add to their score further, however, and Balak’s lead lengthened. Balak 23, Virg 1 In the final quarter it was very one sided, with Balak dominating every aspect of the game. Credit to all the Virginia players for having a go and persevering. Balak 42, Virg 1 C2: A great spectacle for supporters, with Balaklava grabbing the win. A strong start from both teams, but Balak pulled away with some accurate shooting from Lucy Parker and Cheyanne Pennycuick. Good interceptions from Eleanor Cunningham caused some turnovers and Virginia seemed rattled after a player came off injured. Balak 9, Virg 1 Good leads from Lisa Burman and Zoe Bell kept Balak ahead in the second, but strong defending by Virginia’s GK and GD, Kiara Hamborn and Montana Doly, stemmed the flow of Balak goals. Balak 16, Virg4 Virginia started well, scoring the first goal. A good defensive effort from Balak GK, Lori Allen and WD, Sari Baker saw both teams’ even, scoring three goals apiece Balak 19, Virginia 7 Balak came out firing, with the first goal from GS, Lucy Parker. Lori Allen and Lacee McPharlin both defended beautifully. Virginia’s defence also performing well. Good teamwork from both sides saw an entertaining game! Balak 22, Virginia 7 D2: Balak Pink fronted up against Balak Green, with parents joining in for some fun! An even game for the first quarter, Emma Lane at GK showed her intercepting skills. No score but the ball movement up and down the court was flowing nicely for both teams. The second quarter saw all the goals scored, the first being scored by Kara Binka. Plenty of intercepts and attempts to shoot saw a total of three goals - well done! It was this third quarter that the parents joined in the fun! Umpire Bond was seen leaning on the fence conversing with his better half, a little more work needed for the parents regarding the obstruction rule. The last quarter saw coach Kath Taylor take the court to try and show how it’s done! Luckily she was able to shoot a goal and lead by example. All girls had a great time and were able to show how far they have come this season. A fantastic way to finish the season for those beginner players. Hopefully there are no long-term injuries for the parents! The final result was a draw - well done girls.

‘Pies rule the sky Mallala finishes off Eagles’ disappointing season A grade

After a tight first quarter, Mallala eventually powered away from the Eagles to register a solid 71-point win. The Eagles, goalless until late in the third term, went on to only kick one more goal in the final quarter – this was to be their lowest score of the season. The match was effectively a dead rubber with Mallala safely in the four, HWE running down the clock to end the year. While the game meant little as far as ladder positions go, both teams came out playing desperate football. It was hard and tough with goals to Brent Harris and Daniel Griffiths – the only majors in a low scoring first term. Eagles Joel Wilson and Matt Higgs, and James Wildbore for Mallala, were busy early on. When Daniel Feeley goaled, and then Josh Seal goaled after a free, the game was starting to slip away from HWE. The quality of the football wasn’t the prettiest to watch, with turnovers by both teams becoming too common. Mallala were doing most of the attacking but were let down by some poor passing in the forward lines. As one sage noted, maybe the league should switch to Sherrin brand footballs. Whatever the reason, mis-queued kicks did little for the game as a spectacle. Majors to Joel Montgomerie and Brian Montgomery sent Mallala to half time with a 40-point lead. It also left the Eagles still searching for their first goal and wondering where they were go-

REPORTS: By Lindsay Nesbitt ing to get a lift from. HWE had plenty of triers but no clear winners, while Mallala had Joel Montgomerie, Dale McLean, Liam Whitwell and Daniel Griffiths getting plenty of the ball. What appeared difficult for the Eagles became impossible, with a dominant third term by Mallala. Six goals without a miss, five to Brian Montgomery, and a single to Daniel Feeley. Brian Montgomery in particular was at the peak of his form. It was an awesome display of accurate goal kicking and completely broke the game apart. Not even a late ‘breakthrough’ goal by Tom Forrest to get HWE on the board could hide the fact that this game was well and truly over. An indication of how the Eagles’ luck was running came when Robert Montgomery placed a great smother on a kick that looked a certain HWE goal. The ball went down the other end, resulting in one of the six Mallala goal for the term. Lady Luck was not smiling on the Eagles. Todd Twelftree and Dylan Cicolella both had reasonable quarters for the Eagles. Brian Montgomery was a standout for the Magpies, with good backup from Joel Montgomerie, Liam Whitwell and Dale McLean. The final quarter again reverted to a low scoring defensive game, with only the two goals scored. Brian Montgomery was adjudged

best for Mallala, kicking nearly half the ‘Pies total goals. Nathan Hornhardt was both busy and productive on his wing, Joel Montgomerie, Tim Cawrse at centre half back in a return to form, Liam Whitwell and Josh Seal. The Eagles had David Oswald as their best followed by Lee Belperio, Dustin Guthberg, Brad Higgs and Tim Forrest. Mallala now face United in Sunday’s first semi final, while the Eagles’ loss ended a disappointing season for a side that dominated at the start of the millennium.

Reserves

Mallala made short work of an undermanned Eagles outfit in their reserves grade clash. Right from the first bounce, the difference between the two teams was apparent as Mallala went straight onto the front foot. The Magpies eventually recorded the second highest score in the reserves grade this season, only two points shy of the season’s best. Four solid quarters of football produced returns of eight, eight, six and seven goals for Mallala. Even more remarkable, was the effort of full forward Chris Bilney who ended the day with 12 goals. Bilney finished the season with a staggering haul of 21 goals in the last two matches, to literally come from nowhere and win the APFL reserves grade goal kicking. Bilney’s judgement and skills were exemplary, as was his accuracy. The final total was 12 goals, one behind, not to mention a fourth

quarter goal square pass to Derek Tiller. Talk about unselfish team play! The Eagles have struggled virtually all season and this game was no exception. Mallala won every position and were constantly pressing forward. A score of 8.2 at quarter time became 16.3 at half time, and 22.7 at three quarter time. Could Mallala break the 30 goal barrier? Were HWE going to be kept scoreless? The answer to both questions was “no”. The last nine scoring shots for Mallala only resulted in three goals. A Jonathan Jenkins mark under pressure, and pass to Travis Nicholls gave HWE a goal to spare them an embarrassing football tradition. Mallala’s numerous better players included best on ground Chris Bilney, Brett Start, Jase Morgan, Ben Edwards, Jesse Crewdson and Chris Hallion. There were others who could have been considered in their best. The Eagles were battling hard under difficult circumstances, better players including Brett Price, Daniel Wright, Michael Cormack, Matt Hoepner, Josh Mahoney and Mitch Nicholls – who took a clever second term mark in the Mallala goalsquare. Mallala have hit top form at the business end of the season, and while they will have to do it the hard way, are not without a genuine chance of making it back to back flags.

Senior Colts

The Magpies controlled the game from the beginning, running out winners by a massive 161-point margin. Mallala started the game well, getting first use of the ball from centre and kicking forward at every opportunity. The first half of the game, the Magpies kicked 13 goals while holding the Eagles scoreless. Considering Mallala scored 10 points in the half, it was a dominant display. Tyler Williams, Jayden Surmon, and Bradey Krieg were trying their best to get Hummocks into the game. The second half was much like the first, however Hummocks managed to kick a couple of goals in the third term. In the end, Mallala had a great win to give them confidence leading into the finals. Better players for the Eagles were Jacob Olson, Joshua Appleby, Harrison Veitch, Bradey Krieg and Jayden Surmon. For Mallala, best on ground was Jake Birchmore who finished with 11 goals, Lewis Helps had many possessions, Troy Algar finished with eight goals, Zac Hallion, Trent Graham and Jake Charnstrom.

SENIOR COLTS SCORES:

Mallala 26.18 (174) d H W Eagles 2.1 (13) behind early. As the game progressed the Magpies started to gel and it wasn’t long before they created scoring opportunities. Nathan Studham was trying his best across the back lines for Hummocks and took several marks. Mark Jenkin was getting the hard ball when required for Mallala. Angus Clothier was all class as he gathered many possessions around the ground and rarely missed a forward target. In the end, Mallala were too strong for Hummocks and recorded another win. This makes Mallala undefeated for the minor round – they now need to maintain their great form to finish the year and obtain the ultimate prize. Better players for the Magpies were Clothier, Joshua Watson, Kyle Hummell, Thomas Jones for a great effort in ruck, Jamie Good and Mark Jenkin. For the Eagles, Quinn Mackay, Tait Nottle, Nathan Studham, Joshua Studham, and Jack Lu all played well.

SPORT v Football PETER ARGENT’S REVIEW CONTINUED:

‘Pies close down Eagles Mallala closed down an undermanned Hummocks-Watchman Eagles in the game on home turf last Saturday. The relentless Magpies didn’t give the once powerful club any respite and the Eagles only kicked their opening goal into the third term. “We played pretty well, but equally Hummocks are struggling with a lack of depth,” Mallala duel premiership coach, Keith Earl said. “It wasn’t a free flowing game, as Hummocks put numbers back. “While it was a little wet, the ground was in perfect condition and player had no trouble holding their feet.” With his six-goal haul, Brian Montgomery was regarded as the Magpies’ best. Playing in a role across half back, Nathan Hornhardt was a strong contributor as well. Members of the on-ball rotations Joel Montgomerie, Liam Whitwell, Josh Seal also had their usual impact. Tim Cawrse was a general at centre half back, while his brother David, Magpie premiership full back in previous years, returned to the fray at senior level for this contest, which was heartening for the Mallala faithful. Opportunist forward Daniel Feeley chimed in with a pair of goals. Hummocks-Watchman Eagles’ better

players included Dave Oswald in defence, the evergreen Lee Belperio and Dustin Guthberg.

Both Brad Higgs and one of the Eagles’ two individual goal kickers, Tim Forrest also had their moments during the day.

Bombers test the Tigers While Hamley Bridge remained on the bottom of the ladder with just three wins, they really tested the fourth placed United Tigers at Long Plains Oval on Saturday. “Hamley Bridge is an improving side,” Tigers coach Travis Opitz said. “They smashed us in the opening term kicking five goals. “Getting back into the match in the second quarter, we stared to extend our lead in the second half. “We would have got out to just under five goals in front during the last term before they kicked the last couple of goals of the match.” Opitz was impressed with the performance of Simon

Schulz at centre half forward, where he took upwards of a dozen contested marks. Ross Sharer on his wing, along with midfielder Dylan Gillies and Mikey Brown were significant ball winners. Andrew Sharman played his role as well, and with Will Banton on the sidelines Alastair Fleming competed manfully in the ruck contests. Shane Catterall who has improved after coming back from knee surgery was the Bombers’ best, followed by the versatile Adam Pepe. Andrew Power, with his 15th best player mention this year, Josh Moody, Dylan Lockwood and Stuart Gregory were also serviceable. Jamie McArdle was the

only multiple goal kicker for the Tigers, while Brett Burgess and big man Justin Schahinger finished with two each for the visitors.

BOMBER Sam Wedding and Tiger Jakob Curnow jump for the ball in Reserves.

Sweet sixteen for the Cats The Cats stamped their authority on this match at Blyth Oval in the penultimate round of the 2011 regular season, with a nine-goal opening term. Playing against cellar-dweller North Clare, they were in control from the beginning. With three goals-to-two, the second stanza was more of a contest, but with five goals in the third and fourth quarters, BlythSnowtown won by a handsome 80 point margin. “We set up the win with a good first quarter,” coach Brett Ireland said. “Kicking nine goals in that opening term was excellent. “It is fair to say we went through the motions for there. “We’ll now use this opportunity of going through the minor round undefeated as a positive and as a challenge for the boys. Simon McCormack produced a best on ground performance, winning ball both on the inside and outside, along with running hard. Right back in form captain, Ryan Darling, fellow midfielder Nick McCormack and the versatile Scott Atkinson were all dominant. In the first line of defence, Gareth Ottens and Kyle Griffin both were telling all game. Among the Cats’ 10 different goal kickers big forward Ashley Hentschke, Simon McCormack and across half forward, Brad Bell kicked three goals each. The competitions leading goal kicker, Atkinson, Shay Clifford, Darling, Nick McCormack, Matt Noble and playing A grade after being a part of the Prince Alfred College’s first XVIII’s win at Adelaide Oval on Friday night, talented teenager Cameron Giles kicked two goals each. “Also on our half back line Craig Robinson was good, while after receiving a heavy knock early, Brad Bell came back and kicked three goals after half time,” Ireland continued. “Teenager Cameron Giles in his first fullAgrade game, playing in ruck and as a leading forward

NEFL REPORT: By Peter Argent was impressive. “Everyone played their part in the win.” Better players for the well beaten Roosters included on field leader Matt Ward, big man Tom Blum and former South Gawler footballer Damien Ellis. Simon Jaeschke and Brendan Pudney were also serviceable. Both James Hayes and teenager Josh Pritchard kicked three goals each for the North Clare side which has just enjoyed a single victory so far in 2011. Rams collect win to hold onto second spot In a game they needed to win, to hold onto second position, the BBH Rams collected a comfortable 34-point victory against the fourth placed RSMU Hawks. The start proved crucial, with the Rams kicked five goals-to-one in the opening stanza, and while the Hawks were more competitive in the second term, kicking four goals to two, they still had a 14-point lead at half time. Burra-Booborowie-Hallett gradually edged away in the third quarter being 25 points up at the last break, and this increased again by the full time siren. One of the elite players at the “red, white and blues”, Tom Riggs was the hosts leading performer followed by the strong marking Jason Schuppan and first year recruit Casey Schell. Ultra consistent Nick Jackman, the skilful Marcus Hall and Darren Schuppan in defence were also strong. Matt Booth followed his five -goal haul against the Southern Saints the previous week, helping himself to another four against the Hawks. Cousin of the coach, Casey Schell kicked three goals, while both Boh Wall and David Reed snaffled a couple each. RSMU captain, Zack Hier was again the Hawks’ best. Pat Browne and hard running Luke Percy both were noteworthy.

Plains Producer, Wednesday August 24, 2011

CRAIG Robsinson in action for the Cats on Saturday. Andrew Hunt, who has been in solid form over the last month and Jamie Molineux were both serviceable. Brad Koster kicked three goals for the visitors, while both Chris Hill and Dylan Busch kicked two goals each. Saints avenge round one loss to Demons Playing in an away game at Clare Oval, the Southern Saints exacted revenge for the round one loss to the Demons. The 32-point win proved EudundaRobertstown is certainly the best side outside the top four. After an interesting first term, the Saints gradually started to secure some ascendancy in the second, but the contest was still in the balance at the final change, with only two points separating the teams. In the last quarter, Eudunda/ Robertstown slammed on 7.4, while the home team only managed two goals. Terry Sleep was dominant in ruck, while Gabe Laucke continues his break out season in defence. Around the football both Rowan Prior and teenage talent, Dylan Reese were strong

all game. Playing coach, Corey Ah Chee proved to be a potent marking target at centre half forward, while young Clinton Voigt also made his presence felt. The quartet of Dale Button, Jay McLean, Jared Mosey and Ah Chee kicked two goals each for the victors. For the hosts, Heath Ward, Andrew Vandeleur and Daniel Kuhndt were their better players. Brodie Murphy, the hard running Wayne Hutchinson and veteran Josh Vandeleur all had their moments, while 2010 NEFL leading goal kicker, Michael Lieblet and Chris Slattery kicked a pair of goals each. Tigers give Eagles a run for their money The clash at Manoora between the second placed Eagles and bottom side, the BSR Tigers was a tight affair. Last year’s grand finalists were 15 points up at half time, but Peter Meyer’s troops stayed with the title contenders for the remainder of the contest, only going down by eight points in the end. In his first year out of college, creative midfielder Bill Sandow was the Eagles best. His effort included two goals when he pushed forward. He was followed by Eagles big man, Aaron Ackland, key forward Ben Kerslake (two goals) and smooth moving on baller, Shawn Gibson. Both Ash Winders and Mick Young also played crucial roles at pivotal times. Tiger’s veteran Jason Mackenzie had claims for “player of the match” honours with his complete display for the unlucky visitors. Jake Lynch, the young Mackenzie sibling, Adam, Dustin Justin and Scott Morris were all noteworthy as well. Developing young forward, after a season off to play cricket in England last year, Kyron Burgess kicked four goals from full forward for the Tig’s. Youngster Nick Hayes chimed in with a couple as well.

SPORT v Football Second semi final at Lochiel Oval, Saturday:

Blockbuster for Peckers, Rams Antagonists in the round 19 clash last week, Balaklava and Virginia face off again, but this Saturday for the more cherished prize of a direct grand final berth. The margins in each game between these combatants have been close all year. The Peckers won by 14 points at home in round one, while the Rams turned the tables by eight points in round two at Virginia, before last Saturday’s thriller, where the game was decided by less than a kick. A veteran of the code, Balaklava coach Stuart Lamond understands minor round form, even if it is only a week ago, means very little. “It starts at 0.0 each this week,” a prudent Lamond said. “We may have got a little mental edge but that’s about all.

“Pleasingly we got through the final minor round game unscathed. Lamond and the selection panel will have to make calls on Brad Michael, who hasn’t played for a couple of weeks with concussion, and Scott Farrell must also be in the mix. To come back into the Virginia side is ruckman Leif Burden, a late withdrawal last week, Peter Mylonopoulos, along with robust midfielder Troy Wilkey and for his first game since a knee injury in the state-wide country championships in early July, the smooth moving Caleb Howell. “All four are senior players and are expected to return,” Virginia’s mentor, Greg Phillips said. “The match is between two good sides that will be hard at it. “The team that settles down quickly and

peter’s KIss of Death: Peckers by 1 Magpies by 29

FIRST semi final at TWO WELLS Oval, SUNDAY:

Magpies ready to swoop Tigers must shut down Mallala’s ‘awesome foursome’ Reigning premiers and clearly the third best side in the minor round, the Mallala Magpies must come into this contest with the Travis Opitz’s United side as clear favourites. The Magpies are expected to see Christian Rimmer return for this clash, actually making the most potent midfield in the Adelaide Plains competition even more powerful. Mallala’s brains trust believes their side hasn’t reached anywhere near full potential this year and if they can return to their best, the Magpies are still capable of going all the way in 2011 and collecting a third successive crown. “Winning the one-on-one ball is always a key to getting the footy first,” Mallala coach Keith Earl stated. “United beat us pretty convincingly the last time we played them, so they are capable. “At our best we play a pretty accountable style of footy, but I reckon we need at

least 15 goals to win a final like this.” Earl explained last time these teams played each other Heath Pym was a pivotal player in the win, and while Earl confirmed his side did not tag, he would need to make sure he is controlled. The game in many ways comes down to whether United has the man power to close down the Magpie “awesome foursome”, Plains Producer medal favourite Joel Montgomerie, Rimmer, Mr Consistency Liam Whitwell and Jason Earl. If they can be quelled it heightens the Tigers’ chances immensely. That will starve the Mallala forwards of legitimate strong movement of the football. But this is easier said than done. United had Central District premiership player in the early noughties, Sam McArdle on the interchange bench complaining of hamstring tightness after just 10 minutes last week. Another senior player Michael Davies has ruptured his achillies and will certainly

not be back this year. Optiz said his club rested Will Banton, Sam Harding and Brad Shimmin last week, but he is confident all will be OK this week. He also confirmed Peter Burgoyne won’t play because of an ankle problem. “Stifling the effect Rimmer, Montgomerie, Earl and Whitwell have on the game will go a long way to getting the job done in this game,” Optiz confirmed. “Also getting out of the blocks well is another key. “We’ll need to see our efficiency with ball use up around the 80 per cent mark or higher. “There are still a few tricks up my sleeve as well.” United will need a full gambit of them to push the team that has clearly been the third best all year. Mallala should make its way to the penultimate game of the year at Long Plains.

Gripping matches this weekend AT last the finals are here. The last few weeks have dragged on like an Adam Sandler movie since the top four was sorted out three weeks ago but here we are, the business end. What a prelude to the finals series we had at Balaklava last week, the Peckers probably lucky to come out on top. Virginia had a solid amount of scoring shots, Brendon Niklaus in particular shanking some kicks he would have normally slotted. Full back Derek Friedrichs must have been warming up the tonsils for his vocal performance at the club later that night and really put Big Nik off. Apparently Brendon interpreted Derek’s sound check as the full-back hitting on him but if someone was singing Lionel Ritchie’s “Hello” at me while I was lining up for goal, I probably would have been slightly shaken as well. Fear not Big Nik, I’m told Derek is engaged to marry. So there you go, two Royal weddings in one year! The two teams meet again at Lochiel on Saturday, while Sunday’s match looms as a big one between Mallala and United at Two Wells. Mallala come in on the back

THE BANDWAGON With Rick Shaw of flogging Hummocks-Watchman Eagles, who look to 2012 with some hope. I hear the Hunt boys are on their way back to the club next year after venturing overseas this season. HWE put a lot of effort in to get in contact with them, the Hunts became the hunted. United just got over the line against Hamley Bridge, the Bombers merely 14 points from getting off of the bottom of the table. I was proud to see I got another mention by the Hamley crew in the budget on Saturday. For some reason, the club continually promotes my articles and I thank them for it, whoever is responsible. For what it’s worth, I’m not sure why they’ve got their knickers in a knot. I was congratulatory towards the re-signing of Bombers coach, Rian Nelson, for 2012. All I suggested last week was perhaps the club has jumped the gun a little.

For example, what happens if (former Hawthorn great and multiple premiership winning coach) Leigh Matthews purchases the Hamley Bridge Hotel and decides he wouldn’t mind leading the Hamley A grade in the APFL? Even I would come out of

retirement to pull on a Bomber guernsey to play under ‘Lethal’. Yep, it’s far-fetched, I totally agree, but perhaps if someone of extremely high calibre landed in your lap between now and October, you’re going to have to turn them down. That, to me, makes perfect sense. Once again, good luck to the Bombers, the list is steadily building but some room might need to be made in the budget in the off-season.

SPORT v District

Mitch is making waves BOWMANS boarding sensation Mitch Daniel is making waves on a working holiday in England, the gun wakeboarder sticking his tricks to finish third at the recent British Nationals in the Open Men’s class. It’s been a stellar year so far for the stocky star, his third place in the UK building on a second place in the Open Men’s class during the Australian Nationals back in April. “I was really happy with my result at the British Nationals and at the Australian Nationals,” he said. “I was able to meet a whole bunch of people by doing the competition in England at Quayside Lake. “It was a really good experience to ride against different people than usual.” Mitch said he has been staying at Queenford Lakes at the Oxford Wakeboard and Ski Club, a purpose-

REPORT: By Les Pearson built facility for wakeboarders and water skiers. He has been working at the ski club while also taking the opportunity to work on his tricks and see the sights of England. “I’d been riding almost everyday for a week before the competition, but I pretty much ride everyday anyway but I really focused on the tricks that I was going to do in my passes during the competition,” Mitch said. “I’ve been riding well so I’ll be looking forward to the Australian summer and progressing my riding even more. “My body is going well I’ve only injured my ankle while I’ve been over here.” The experience has been one to savour so far, both on and off the water.

“It’s been good times,” Mitch said. “I’ve just been wakeboarding, going out at night and meeting new people. “Everyone that I have met has been really welcoming and loves the accent, (laughs).” There’s still a few exciting months ahead too. “I have a few competitions like the night jump where I’m being a show wakeboarder and riding in the British pro-tour,” Mitch said. “I hope to do a bit of travelling to Europe and just go and have a good time with people that I have met at Queenford Lakes.” He is rather relaxed when it comes to goals for the future. “My goals with wakeboarding is just to have fun with it, use it to travel and meet new people that enjoy the sport as much as I do,” he said.

Golf BALAKLAVA LADIES

Congratulations are in order for our new Club Champions! Cathy Redpath clinched both the A grade Championship and Dixon Cup titles. Cathy had to work hard for the spoils, as she and Patricia Anderson had to play an extra three holes to decide the winner.Cathy put in cards of 87 and 93 to secure the title The effervescent Tania Matz won the B grade Championship with cards of 100 and 103 from Joan Anderson, who gave her a run for her money, finishing just one stroke behind. In C grade, the steadily improving Denby Wandel, with cards of 106 and 112, came in ahead of Josie Thompson to claim that Championship. Well done. The regular Thursday competition winners were: A grade - Patricia Anderson, nett 78 on a count back from Norma Taylor, followed by Louise Michael 81, Maurine Kemp 83, Cathy Redpath 84 and Jill Taylor 89. B grade - Joan Anderson nett 79, Cherie Taylor 80, Moya Hayes 82, Tanya Greenshields 84 and Tania Matz 86. C grade - Denby Wandel nett 75, Julia Hoskin 77, Josie Thompson 81 and Sue Freidrichs 87. Another cheap round regarding NTP’s – nobody found the green. Producer points: Denby Wandel 5, Julia Hoskin 4, Patricia Anderson 3, Norma Taylor 2,Joan Anderson 1. Next week: fourth Par and Club Medal. Starters: F Williams, D Wandel. We are truly indebted to our groundstaff for the hours they dedicate to improving the course – it is looking great. Thank you gentlemen. Quote for the week: “There is no other game that strips the soul so naked” – H G Hutchinson.

Balaklava men

Cometh the Balco Trophy, cometh the man and of the 21 men who bowled up, bound for glory, but one was chosen for greatness, our very own Doug Taylor. Doug, demon slasher did, without ruth, leave the field discarnate by clubbing just 78 shots for a net 62, thanks in no short order to a big day out with the putter, a mere 22 do you mind (where was John Curnow, with his wry smile and laconic humour on this day?!). So it came to pass that lesser A grade mortals arranged themselves in Doug’s wake, namely ‘Mighty Merv” Hameister (79/65) and young Willum Lokan ( 81/67) to clean up the goodies. Thems as got nothing but a passing mention were W Parkin (74/70), I Michael (83/71), S Michael (90/74), W Goudie (91/75), J Breuer (84/76) and W Nagle (89/76). Any trace of B grade bonhomie evapo-

rated when a totally out of control emu tore through the field, plus a few fences resulting in one Graham Ackland (92/73) causing tears before bedtime for both Greg Sonntag (96/73) and latterly Digby Addison (94/73), courtesy of the good Count Bach. On the other hand, visitor Peter Sellar (94/74) showed the remaining locals a clean pair of heels, viz-a-viz W Berry (95/75), B Michael (99/76) and D Rodgers (97/79!). Over in the C grade collective, it was Brother Greg Anderson (99/69), who had clearly been chomping on his cordyceps through the week, girding his loins, legs and lobes so as to humble wannabees Austin Henstridge (97/70) and Martin Bell (109/74). John Michael (106/82) also finished but Geoff Leo, for whom losing a golf ball is up there with the fall of Troy and the sacking of Carthage, did indeed lose a pill and left the field, wracked with sour sobs and carding a tear-stained DNF. Of Birdies there were three, achieved by Doug Taylor (3rd), Merv Hameister (8th) and Bill Goudie (10th). Nearest The Pins were claimed by Doug Taylor at the third, Digby Addison (8th), Jimmie Breuer (10th) and Wayne Mc Naga-Nagle on the 17th. This weekend, under clear skies and in the most clement of weather, we rejoin for the final of our three-week aggregate Stroke competition, to be followed by a right-royal nosh-up (if you blokes bring some simple salads and your dentures) as our glorious President Willum Lokan stands and delivers, in true Shakespearian fashion, the highly steamed Presentation Night, which will include both the Eddie Dennison Putting Trophy and our very own The Producer’s “Golfer of the Year” highlights. Also on a night when too much golf awarding won’t be enough, we’ll get to fawn before the winners of both the Captain’s and President’s Trophies, to mention but a few, so dust off the spats, brush up the top hat and buff your fingernails for a truly galah evening. Hopefully, a few of us won’t overindulge, as on the very next day we host the magnificent Mid North Group Open and so expect a very rampaging representation of rapacious rural reprobates. Come the following Friday, we host also the truly, really and enormously big “Champion of Champions” Silver, Bronze and “C” Salvers Stoush, a State-wide women’s event. A bit of help to tidy the course up before we put ourselves on display would be a fine thing, so if you can put your hand up at any time between now and then, please do so at the Presentation Night. We can then have you fitted out with leg-irons, curling tongs, kilts and pressure-cookers, all to maximise your course-cleaning efficiency - ta.

Twenty-seven souls fronted up for

Saturday’s Stroke competition, sponsored by Tyrepower, Cheltenham. A great day for golf, the sun was shining and the course was looking good. Only four players, and they were all in B grade, played to their handicap or better. How hard is this course boys?! In A grade, Simon Grigg fired a net 70 and thought his day was over, not good enough. The score though saw off all A graders to win on a count back from his brother Stuart and John Ball with 71’s from Rob Thompson and Scott Abbott next. Russell Grigg fired an early 64 in B grade and was winning the grade, the putting comp and Monthly Medal until Stephen Kelly, in the last group of the day, walked in with a 60 to take them all away. Tim Clifton finished with a 64 to come third and Robert Hogg a fine 67 for fourth. Andrew Baker continued on his winning way with a 70 to take out C grade from Michael Dimasi 71 and Bingo Barns 73. Julie Holland (78) picked up a ball for NAGA after Ian Smith (81) snuck out the back door to avoid being the NAGA recipient – duly noted Smithy! Rob Thompson advised that he was leaving to live in Loxton. Rob will be missed, he was a good Club member, a club sponsor and was always helping Hoggy to prepare the course. Best of luck with your move Rob and you will be missed. Results A Grade: 70 Simon Grigg, Stuart Grigg, John Ball, 71 S Abbott, R Thompson, 72 Y Frencken, 77 L Grafton, 81 I Smith.

n THE Balaklava side proudly walks off the field after their win over Virginia on Saturday.

Proud Peckers

Late goal seals minor premiership for Balaklava Playing a precursor to the 2011 grand final in many people’s eyes, the Peckers held on in an absolute nail biter, winning by five points. Ryan McPharlin’s shot on the run from 30 metres within the final two minutes proved to be the match winner. After Virginia got out of the blocks early, Lamond’s troops reeled them back in with a six goals to one second term, kicking towards the northern end of Balaklava Oval. The match became a ‘dog fight’ from this point and the more accurate Peckers grabbed victory and also the minor premiership by percentage. “You never go into any games wanting to lose and you certainly get more positives out of a win,” Balaklava coach, Stuart Lamond explained. “We still have things to work on and our first quarter was disappointing. “In the second quarter when we regrouped, we received a lot of drive from the midfield.” Brenton Lamond was a potent force at centre half back, having the better of Chris James for most of the contest. Through the middle Ben Catford, La-

chie and Justin Michael were constructive all game. Hayden Walker, at centre half forward in the first half and in ruck from the main break, had a telling influence on the result. Derek Friedrichs, at full back had the job of Rams’ power forward, Brendon Niklaus and kept him to three goals. “Hayden is such an influential player, so we shifted him into the ruck where he had an impact,” Lamond continued. “Along with the Michael boys and Benny (Catford), both Sam Rowland and Ryan (McPharlin) both played their roles in the midfield rotations. “Lachie (Michael) also pushed forward to have an effect on the scoreboard and his couple of goals in the second quarter were important.” Along with Michael’s three goals, the

high leaping Glenn Dawson kicked four goals and the coach himself (Lamond) also proved to be a solid secondary target with three goals. Leading the charge for the Rams in this away game were Nathan Warren, Matthew Young and veteran recruit from Salisbury North, Joss Denengelse. Ben Galic, Daniel Kerr and the consistent Ben Russel also made an impact for the side that were just short when the final siren sounded. “We missed opportunities especially in front of goal, and in a close game this is critical,” Rams coach, Greg Phillips said. “There were a couple of incidents when the wrong decisions were made in front of goal. “If you were an independent spectator it was a good game and everyone was certainly having a crack.” Virginia certainly weren’t helped by key forward and competition leading goal kicker, Brendon Niklaus, kicking 3.7 for the day. Stephen Papanotis and Cameron Felstead both finished with two goals each. n Peter Argent’s other A grade match reviews, page 21
