The Vice President’s Report



Sporting sub - clubs The club supports 27 amateur sporting bodies amongst its 40 sub-clubs. Readers can find reports from sporting clubs towards the back of this journal issue, along with the contact details. Sporting results can also be found at the Club’s website and at some excellent websites of the subclubs. A major recent success was cricket club’s winning the state under 14’s T20 title in a final held at the SCG. Lawn bowls continues to flourish at the Club’s sites at Revesby and Panania, especially with the installation of tifdwarf greens, and at Mooney Mooney. All our sporting and interest sub-clubs are open to Club members and I encourage enquires to the contacts listed in this journal. Come along and just have a go. For example, there is a social game of Darts at the Sport and Recreation Centre at Panania on the 1st Friday of the month. Names just have to be in by 6pm.

Community contribution

Anzac Day service

Registered clubs, like Revesby Workers’, are essentially community organisations, set up to assist the community by providing facilities and services. Today many other organisations, including commercial ones, attempt to show that, apart from their business activities, they also have the community at heart and contribute to it. In this environment, not-for-profit clubs’ wellestablished community roles need to be emphasised and communicated. A number of initiatives are being pursued to promote the contribution made by your club to the local community and to ensure that the best outcomes are being achieved. For example, a new Community section on the Club website will display the impact of its assistance to health, education, welfare etc.

On Anzac Day this year, a formal service is being held at the recently constructed cenotaph between the multilevel car park and the Club building.

Recognition Over the years our Club has won many awards for its services and facilities. ClubsNSW awards system now emphasises the role of clubs in the community. This year the Club has submitted two entries. The first is for the Health Mates Fitness Centre in the award category of Health; the second is for the Mooney Mooney Club in the category of the Environment. We are also again entering teams from our catering at Revesby and Mooney Mooney in the Chef’s Table competition, in which the Club has been previously successful.

The service is organised by Revesby Heights RSL sub-branch in conjunction with the Club and starts with a march from Bankstown City YMCA, on the River Road Revesby, at 10.30am. Sub-clubs were invited to join the march and the attendance of Club members is welcomed. There will also be the traditional Anzac Day commemorative service at the Revesby Workers’ Sports and Recreation Centre at Panania at 1 pm.

Construction work At the time of writing the ground floor slab of the eastern commercial precinct, to be known as Revesby Village Centre, has been poured and work on the upper two levels should be completed by early June. We are still hopeful that the fit out of the building will be completed in time for the Coles supermarket and specialty stores on the ground level to be opened before Christmas. Installation of the covering over the walkway between the multi-storey car park and the Club is due for completion by late April.

Edward Camilleri CEO Hello Members,

Work on the eastern precinct has certainly moved forward in leaps and bounds since I last provided you with an update on progress. As you will see from the below photographs all the preparation work is well and truly complete and the structure is now onto its third level. Levels that are structurally complete include Basement Level 2 and Basement Level 1 which will provide underground parking for 270 vehicles. Following on from this, the Ground Floor of the retail centre where the Coles flagship store will be housed along with other specialty retailers. Level 1 where Ekera Medical will be located is currently under construction. Below are some photos that depict these milestones in the Eastern Precinct development.




Images: 1. The first slab poured on 29 November 2013 for Basement Level 2. 2. Ground floor slab poured on 28 February 2014, where Coles and speciality retailers will be situated. 3. Level 1 first slab was poured on 1 April 2014, where Ekera Medical will be situated

As we work hard to build the Club’s future, it’s important to reflect on the Club’s strong history. You will all be familiar with the Club’s 50th Anniversary History Book ‘True to our Traditions’ and in fact many of you may even own a copy. If you are one of these members we thank you as your financial contribution through the purchase of this book has been fully passed on to the Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia (ADFA) at the request of our Board of Directors. ADFA is a not-for profit organisation working to provide support to people living with asbestos related diseases, family members, carers and friends. ADFA is a community based group founded by Trade Unions, victims, families of victims, and concerned citizens to meet the needs of people affected by asbestos related disease. To date we are pleased to confirm that contributions to the ADFA now total $12,000. As always, thank you for your patience and ongoing patronage as we continue to build a better club for all.

Dennis Hayward DIRECTOR For ClubGRANTS and Revesby Workers’ Bill Bullard Charity

Upcoming events Berry Markets and Coach Tour Sunday 4 May $40 per person Bankstown City Netball ‘Bucket Day’ Saturday 14 June Deveral Park Christmas in July @ Fountaindale Grand Manor Robertson Sunday 20 July Tour and Lunch $80 per person Ladies Fashion Parade - Summer Display Friday 8 August Revesby Worker’s Club $10 per person Annual Trivia Evening Saturday 30 August Panania Sport and Rec Centre. $10 per person Please assist the Charity Committee to purchase additional equipment for Bankstown Hospital Cardiac Care Unit. For further information or bookings contact Margaret 9772 1398 Pat 9772 3297

Thanks to all those wonderful people who donate time and money to the operation of our Charity. This year commenced with a ladies fashion parade which has seen increases in numbers since its inception culminating in the biggest attendance yet in March. The ladies were treated to a light supper and could add to their wardrobe from a spectacular range of merchandise on display. The Southern Highlands wine tour seating filled very quickly and the day was exceptional with a great lunch, wine tastings at three of the best venues in the Highlands and a grand winery tour, which provided a great insight into wine making and storage. ClubGRANTS have now closed for the 2014 round of applications and we are assessing the projects that Revesby Workers’ Club will be funding. Our Club, on behalf of the Bankstown committee, is hosting the cheque presentation in July in the Whitlam room, and we expect some four hundred people, recipients and dignitaries to be present. A small portion of Revesby Workers’ ClubGRANT monies assist the community which is connected to our Mooney Mooney Club. In house, the committee looks at submissions from Marine Rescue and the Rural Fire Service both of whom are volunteer bodies and also the Brooklyn Public School to assess the need of those organisations. The area around Mooney Mooney is at the very end of the Gosford Shire and in a position where subsidies for volunteer groups and the lone school in the locality, where a majority of our younger member’s children attend, are very scarce.


Don’t forget the upcoming charity events such as the Christmas in July on Sunday 20 July. The venue is the Fountaindale Grand Manor at Robertson with a three course meal and return coach tour from the Club included at a cost of $80.00 per person. Again on 8 August the charity committee will present another ladies fashion parade at Revesby Workers’ Club with cool summer fashions on display for purchase. The annual trivia evening is on again on 30 August 2014 at Revesby Worker’s Sport and Recreation Centre at Panania. The Semlitzky family stage a fun filled evening with a great range of questions that will have you and your friends guessing throughout the night. Great prizes are up for grabs including one week’s accommodation at our units at either Final Bay, Sussex Inlet or Urunga. Members can also book holiday times at the three top quality resorts Final Bay, Sussex Inlet or Urunga by asking at Revesby Workers’ Club reception desk. Bookings can also be arranged by email at the Federation of Community Sporting and Workers’ Clubs direct on Friday 12 September is the charity presentation evening where Bankstown Hospital will be the recipients of the 2013-2014 year fundraising. Our friends, sub club representatives and invited guests will be on hand to witness the presentation of equipment to hospital executives to improve the valued service Bankstown Hospital provides to our community. All the best and please support your Club charity.

Inspirational tunes such as You Raise Me Up, Can't Help Falling In Love and the all time classic Unchained Melody will be performed alongside new selections such as The Way You Look Tonight, Moon River and How Sweet It Is. With Harrison's beautiful voice and heart warming charm these shows will be a treat for Mum's across the country and the perfect way to say "Mum, I love you" on her very special day.

JOHNWATERS with Stewart D’Arrietta

A homage to the music, mystery and memory of John Lennon. The show is not a cut-and-paste biography of Lennon or an emulation of the original recordings. On stage, with shadows from the lighting arrangement fluttering over his face as he explores the essence of the man through song and spoken word, Waters, becomes synonymous with Lennon. For the audience this is either an emotional trip down memory lane or a wonderful introduction to the life and times of one of the most fascinating icons of our time. With 31 songs performed including to name a few, ‘A Day in the Life’, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, ‘Revolution’, ‘Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds’, ‘Woman’, ‘Jealous Guy’, ‘Imagine’ and more, this is a show for all ages.

A unique blend of outrageous humour and his witty, mischievous style make Peter Powers one of the very best in the business. Critics have called him "The Ali G of Stage Hypnosis" and "The most talented stage craftsman that I have ever had the privilege to witness". Being live at a Peter Powers theatre stage show is the ultimate experience offering ultimate comedy entertainment. He is without doubt the best and most popular hypnotist in Australia and can be described as wicked, naughty and mischievous, and although some routines are adult in nature, it is strictly in good humour. Peter Powers has always said touring in Australia is great fun. "Australians really enjoy their entertainment and make superb, often wild, audiences". This is one not to be missed!

The stylish bar specialising in champagnes, exotic cocktails and boutique beers, combined with beautifully appointed high backed chairs, an open fire place and private booths for group celebrations was well received by all. This destination has proven very popular with its taste tingling Tapas menu and its High Tea decadence, perfect for all types of celebrations. It has also attracted some of the best live music Sydney has to offer.


In celebration of this, for the month of June, we will be giving away 12 birthday prizes every week. TO ENTER: Simply spend $10 or more in one transaction at Infinity Bar from Thursday to Sunday. Offer available from Thursday 5 June 2014 to Sunday 29 June 2014. Terms and conditions apply. Winners will be drawn the following Monday at 10am and will be contacted by phone and or email.

WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE Is it time to do something for yourself?

The Health Mates Weight Loss Challenge is what you have been waiting for. Last year, as a group we lost over 400kg. Past winners have lost between 17 and 20% of their body weight. Could you be a winner this year? Over the 12 week program your goal will be to reduce your percentage body weight. The person with the highest percentage loss will be the winner and as always there will be great prizes up for grabs. If you are interested in participating in the challenge, please contact Health Mates on phone 8707 6930 or email

Registration opens July 2014

What previous Weight Loss Challenge participants have to say… What motivated you to sign up for the Weight Loss Challenge? “I decided to put myself first. As a wife and mother of two children you are usually placed low on the list of priorities. There is always something else to do before you can pay attention to your own needs. I decided that I had to change as my health was suffering”. Cassandra What has been the most noticeable change you have experienced whilst taking part in the Weight Loss Challenge? “I experienced a physical and mental change. My mentality was to stick with the same old regime that I had success with in losing weight in the months prior. Stepping out of my comfort zone and doing work with a personal trainer after not having used a trainer in such a long time, I felt the benefits pretty much straight away. Physically I felt strong and felt great doing something different. It gave me a bit of swagger and a lot more confidence”. Garry

SAY NO to Winter Weight Gain

When the colder seasons roll around things in the gym start to change. Mindsets start to change. Habits start to change as the fear of summery, beach attire starts to evaporate. We get comfortable and loosen the straps a little. For some this translates to a little extra “stored energy” on the waist line when the warmer weather surfaces again, but alas, this does not have to be the case. The following list comprises of a few steps which you may be able to take to make the most of your gains and make for an easier summer transition.

Ensure your exercise stays a regular part of your week

Although the days will be colder and get darker earlier, it doesn’t make them much different to what they were in daylight savings hours. 6pm is still 6pm, regardless if it is dark or light outside. If you normally train after work, keep up the schedule. If it is too cold outside just remember that the gym is the same temp year round and has great lighting.

Remember that little things count

Incidental exercise is a great way of burning extra energy. The old idea of parking the car further away and using steps instead of escalators is not new to anyone, but it really can be effective. Try wearing a pedometer to see how much incidental exercise you truly do. 10,000 steps per day should cut it!

Add some spice to your life

According to Health Mates accredited practising dietician, Rebecca Gawthorne, spices are a great way to add flavour without the calories. Adding tasty spices such as cinnamon, cumin, coriander, turmeric, peppercorns, mustard seeds, and garlic to your food will not only be a treat to your taste buds, they help boost health too. If you like things hot, chilli and cayenne will help fire your metabolism up too.

Eat more protein

Protein helps to keep you feeling satisfied for longer, reducing the likelihood of overeating! Protein-rich foods such as lean red meat provide critical nutrients, like iron that may be lacking in your diet. Being low in iron can make you feel tried, unwell and lacking in motivation to exercise and eat healthy. Spread your protein intake out evenly throughout the day and include a source of protein such as meat, fish, legumes, dairy foods or nuts at every meal.

Have a plan “B”

If you cannot make a gym session for whatever reason, have back up activities which you can do to burn some fuel. This could be as simple as running your steps at home, walking outside, doing an exercise DVD or doubling up your effort next time around. So there you have it! A few simple ideas that you can introduce into your daily routine, to get you through the colder months. Consider this; there is no time like the present, so why not start today? A day wasted, is a day lost! 31

You may know someone who has been affected or be a survivor yourself,


Name Pauline Fong Weight loss to date 25kgs When did you start training at Health Mates? I joined Health Mates in late August 2013. What inspired you to join Health Mates? Towards the middle of last year I quit my job and started putting on weight to the point where my clothing was getting a little too tight. I decided that instead of buying a bigger size, I was going to do something about my health and fitness. I now have to buy new clothes, but that’s because I’m 4 sizes smaller! What services have you utilised since joining Health Mates and have they helped? From day one I’ve had cardio and weights programs prescribed by the brilliant trainers at Health Mates. With each program the trainers will go through which cardio and weights they recommend you use to achieve your goals and most importantly, how to use them, so you’re using the correct technique and form. What have you achieved with your training so far and how has this affected you? I’ve managed to lose 25kgs in 6 months! In addition, my strength and fitness levels are the best they’ve ever been. This has definitely given me more confidence in myself and proven that I can do anything if I’m determined, persistent and willing to give it everything I’ve got! What are your goals going forward from now? I’d like to get my body fat percentage down to around 24-25% and increase my muscle mass. What advice would you give to someone wishing to embark on the same journey you are on? Getting your health and fitness in order is the best gift you can ever give to yourself because no-one else can do it for you. There’s a lot of hard work and sweat involved, but it’s all worth it! There’s only one regret you’ll have… that you didn’t do this sooner!

Funky Hair Day

The Tree House children celebrated the World’s Greatest Shave with a ‘Funky Hair Day’ on Friday 14 March.





The children had a wonderful time getting their hair sprayed and styled with a variety of coloured and glittered sprays. All the children then watched on as one of our teachers Bradley, volunteered once again, to have his head shaved for the cause. This produced a lot of laughter as Brad’s hair slowly disappeared.


Thank you to Hair Necessities for donating their time to shave Brad’s hair and thank you to the families and staff for their gold coin donations, we raised $100 for this event.

Tree House gets its Groove On The music was pumping, the lights were flashing and everyone had their groove on at the Tree House fancy dress disco! The children, parents and teachers danced till they dropped to some great party hits.


The children went Banana’s FOR the Wiggles The Wiggles returned to Revesby Workers’ for their “Apples and Bananas” Tour on Friday 21 March. Anthony. Emma, Lachy and Simon were a huge success and had all Tree House children up dancing and singing along.



The show featured new hits as well as Wiggle classics such as “Hot Potato” and “Rock a Bye Your Bear”. The Fab Four of fun were of course joined by Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus! Images: 1-2. Supporting Brad for the World’s Greatest Shave! • 3-5.

Behind THE SCENES Mooney Mooney Club WINs...

Harmony Day

It is with great pleasure to announce that Mooney Mooney Club has won the “OOPS Small Club Superior Service Award for 2013.

The message of Harmony Day is ‘Everyone Belongs’.

These prestigious awards recognise outstanding customer service in the Clubs, Hotels and Pubs across NSW and 2013 saw an incredibly competitive playing field emerge across the industry. Each and every month our clubs are assessed and reported on by various means, whether it be a mystery visit to the club itself or a call to the club’s reception requesting particular details of an upcoming event. The manner in which staff respond and how the club presents and delivers its services and facilities are all considered. This award has our Mooney Mooney Club firmly placed as a leading edge community grounded club that other clubs will turn to as a benchmark. This much sought after award in the industry has many venues working hard to provide customers with “excellent and consistent” service and facilities. The bar has definitely been raised and the competition for 2014 will be even fiercer. Next time you visit our Mooney Mooney Club be sure to congratulate the team.

Celebrated on Friday 21 March

“Around 45 per cent of Australians were born overseas or have at least one parent who was born overseas”. This day is to celebrate Australia’s diversity. It is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home – from the traditional owners of this land to those who have come from many countries around the world. Revesby Workers’ staff have been celebrating Harmony Day since 2012 through food and gathering together in our VIP staff room. This year the Catering Department provided a menu highlighting favourite meals from around the world, such as a spicy laksa, beef stroganoff, pork spareribs, and other culinary treats to give staff an opportunity to sample fares from other lands and cultures. The VIP staff room was decorated in Harmony Day “orange” which brings a splash of vibrant colour to the celebration. This year staff were also encouraged to mark their cultural heritage on a large world map to demonstrate the diversity of our workplace. Harmony Day is an Australian Government program and coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

NSW UNDER 14 WEET-BIX CUP T20 CHAMPIONS! Revesby Workers’ Cricket Club is proud of its players who were crowned the Under 14 Weet-Bix Twenty20 Cup State Champions, after a stunning victory at the Sydney Cricket Ground in February, having taken out the Metropolitan title in January at Blacktown. The team was a mix of players from the club’s U14 side and players playing up an age in the Bankstown U15/16 competition. To secure the title, Workers had to defeat country champions, Dapto. Dapto won the toss and elected to bat, scoring 7/142, a very good score and one that looked difficult to run down. After losing the opening batters in the first three overs, Workers were quite concerned, but everyone played their hearts out and ended up winning the match with seven balls to spare. Playing on the hallowed turf of the SCG and occupying the away dressing room was a great thrill for the players, but to come away with the title was an exceptional experience.

Bowls – Lawn (ladies) Liaison Director: Ian Stromborg We have had a busy four months since the Christmas Break. On Australia Day we held our annual “Australia Day” celebrations. The club was decorated so beautifully with typical Australian Bush scenes- Even the prizes to be presented at the end contained goodies of our Australian products and were all wrapped so lovely. It was a credit to our ladies of our committee and social committee. As we only had one green available it was full of players from our ladies and men’s clubs with some visitors from other clubs. So many of the bowlers again dressed in Australia Day themes. Morning Tea was damper, golden syrup, anzac biscuits and then followed a morning game of bowls. Lunch was our typical Aussie Day Tucker – meat pies, and lamingtons. In March the State Pennants (at District Level) commenced- we entered two teams – one in Grade 3 and the other in Grade 4. This year our club championships were held off till after the Pennant season – During April we commenced our Pairs Championship – results will be in our next journal.

To the tune of Men At Work singing “We come from the land down under” about 60 members of the RWC mens and ladies bowling clubs filed out on to the bowling greens for their traditional Australia Day game of mixed bowls, to be followed by their usual fund raising afternoon for their nominated charity. The morning started off with fresh damper and golden syrup, anzac biscuits, (someone forgot the sao’s and vegemite) and billy tea. Then came the mixed bowls, with lunch served about 1.30pm. Hot (runny) pies and tomato sauce followed by whopping lamingtons and cream. The players made a very colourful group out on the green with the all Aussie green and gold predominating. Our rather “shy and retiring” Treasurer Steve Jackson stood out like the proverbials in his Top Hat and flowing cloak, all with Aussie flag motif. Meanwhile the Pavey family took home most of the prizes that were on offer to the lucky punters. A good Australia Day, thanks to the ladies committee and a nice donation to the charity of our choice which will be nominated at years end. Aussie!Aussie!Aussie! Terry Raper Memorial Day. This day was played out on Friday March 7th when over 100 players converged on our Spence St site to honour the memory of “The (unofficial) Mayor of Revesby,” Terry Raper, who left us way too soon some years ago to the dreaded Melanoma curse. The day also welcomed in the 2nd “tiffie”to Spence St which is about a fortnight before Homelea Ave gets their 1st.It is a pleasure to be able to play on not one but 2 tiffies at Spence St, a luxury we can all be proud of. We played 3, games of 15 ends each and competition was fierce, with visitors from many clubs in attendance, most of whom knew Terry and came to honour his memory, as well as support the Melonoma foundation Charity. The triples winners of the day were ; 1st I. Stromborg (RWC), T. Glenn, I.Hawkins.(Picton) 2nd C. Morgan, R. Shelton, D. Godfrey.(Pic.Pt) 3rd M. Elder, D. Hawkins, R. Hopkins (RWC). It was a great day enjoyed by all who attended in near perfect weather and a great start for our new tiffie.

Sports Reports Of course we know these days don’t just happen, a lot of effort goes into them and we thank Darryl Ohlmann, Mick Lindwall, Geoff Brittain, Bob Hill, Dave Raper, Ted Boyan, Ray Hopkins and those volunteers who helped on the day as well as the Raper family for their continued support. Donations were received from; Standard Training(Andrew Raper),Bankstown Council, Allen Ashton, Richards Meats and our own Revesby Workers Club. We also liked the guy who supplied those delicious prawns after the game, umm yummy! A nice cheque for around $2650.00 will be on its way to the Melonoma foundation from all us bowlers who had a wonderful day. On Wednesday 19th March Homelea Ave finally opened its 1st Tiffie. Ray Hopkins did the honours with the scissors when he cut the red and white ribbons on the bank of our well decorated and much anticipated new green. The honour of bowling the 1st bowls went to our most senior and respected member Eric Kauffman together with our much younger but also highly respected Greenkeeper, Bruce Kirkaldy. Both men are a credit to our club. Eric now in his 93rd year is still playing well (a resting toucha IN THE DITCH with his 1st bowl at his previous game) and is well deserving of this honour, as is Bruce who with his mate Craig have been working furiously to bring this green in on time. They also have the surrounds of the club looking an absolute picture and presentation is fantastic. There were some special prizes on offer for our special day. The winners of these were; Merv Crutchley, Bob Brown, George Roberts and Merv Elder. All were impressed with this new addition to our club and enjoyed the event and celebrations. Our photos show clubs Preso Ray Hopkins cutting the ribbon and Eric and Bruce sending the 1st bowls down to declare this green well and truly open. The tradition continues, the golfers are coming. Yes on June 22nd once more those upstart RWC Mens Golf Club members are coming to “The Fibro” for our annual clash, no doubt still on a high after they pulled our pants down and smacked our collective backsides with their win over us at our last meeting in 2013 and anxious to prove it was no fluke. Well best of luck fellas and ok we are still licking our wounds after that defeat but we are thinking more about licking our fingers after the golfers chef Noel Morrison serves up his Pièce de résistance after the game. The golfers after game feasts are legendry to their members and we are lucky to be included in that select group, so to

all bowlers take this tip and get your name in early as there will be plenty of interest in this epic game. On the sick list we have Steve Jackson, Barry Saunders and Bill Ojala. After a stay in hospital it is hoped by the time you read this they will be well and back in action again. The twilight bowls are now over for this season and was a little disappointing with attendances not quite what was expected, a lot of hard work goes into these games and for that we thank Denis Gallant and Doug Hawkins and also Max Pavey who stepped in while Denis was shaking his maraccas in South America and all the other committee men and volunteers who helped out during the season. Special mention to Ernie and Betty who are regular attendees and always have a good time on these nights.

CRICKET Liaison Director: Christine Benham Well the 2013-14 summer season has wound up – and it was another great season for Revesby Workers Cricket Club! Prior to the Christmas break, the weather had been very dry, with the hard ground contributing to some great batting innings. Post-Christmas, there were some washouts, meaning much less cricket was played in the lead-up to the semi-finals. We fielded 15 teams in competitive cricket, and 2 in the very young noncompetitive cricket. 6 of the teams finished in the top four in their grades, with 2 progressing to their preliminary finals, but, alas, not one team made it to the grand final. This is the first time in a long while for the Club, if ever! However, the season was not without some success, with the Maroon side winning the (Over 35s) Bankstown Masters Cup. As well, our Under 14s side (comprising some players who had played in the U15s, but were genuine U14s, and players from the U14 side, combined to take out the Under 14 Metropolitan Weet-Bix Cup T20 championship, and then successfully take on country champions, Dapto, to win the state title at the magnificent Sydney Cricket Ground. Congratulations to coaches Alan Willmore and Matt O’Leary and to the team, comprising Lachlan Willmore (c), Kieran Armson-Graham, John Rorison, Michael Christodoulos, Alex Salgueira, Jacob Karam, Jye Werrett, Radha Jagtap, Tommy Lang,

Blake Worsfold, Jonah Ngaronoa, Dean Zamagias and Michael O’Leary. Now we have the 2014 Masters Cup (Over 35s Super 8s) keeping us busy through the winter and it won’t be long before we start signing on for the next summer comp! See you on Sundays in August at the Sports & Rec Centre, Homelea Ave Panania from 10am til noon!

Golf - Mens Liaison Director: John Rodwell The winners are too numerous to mention in this short article, so readers are invited to visit our informative web site at for detailed information about our Club, news, upcoming events schedule and weekly event summary with winner’s photos and results. With quality golf courses like Bankstown, Kogarah, Antill Park and Campbelltown on offer, interest and attendance has been very high for the nine games played during the first three months of 2014. The main event completed was the Singles Matchplay Championship and congratulations must go to Phil Kilazoglou as the new “Cock-of-the-Walk” champion after his victory over a defiant Noel Connolly in the Matchplay final. The next couple of months will see games played at some new courses such as Cabramatta and Links Shell Cove, as well as established courses like Bankstown, Campbelltown, Rosnay and Antill Park. Some events will be high profile (Merv Pell and 2BBB Championship), whilst others will be novelty (Funny Hat Day), and don’t forget there will be the Revesby to Goulburn trip away in early April as well as the annual Bowls challenge in June between Revesby Golfers and Revesby Bowlers at the Revesby Bowls Club - the

Sports Reports reigning champions are the Golfers. In other areas, the Social Committee has been working hard both on and off the field, in particular, BBQs after some games as well as extensive preparation for the forthcoming Presentation Night to be held at Revesby Workers Club on 22rd March. Also on the social agenda is the Gold Coast trip away towards the end of May for a week – it’s very popular and the golf courses they play on are absolutely amazing! The remaining schedule of courses for 2014 is quite varied with a smattering of new courses for Revesby (such as Kogarah, Cabramatta, Penrith, Links Shell Cove and Stonecutters Ridge). In addition, there are the usual good courses played, with a dozen rounds at our home course Bankstown, and several rounds each at Campbelltown, Antill Park, and Rosnay. Keep loose and happy golfing.

Marine Rescue – HAWKESBURY Liaison Director: Dennis Hayward Statistics: Year to March Vessels assisted People moved to safety Recorded Duty Hours Fuel Consumed

2014 28 76 3,922 $1,782

(2013) (39) (111) (4,288) ($2,798)

There has been a sharp reduction in call outs during week-ends while weekday emergencies increase. The decrease in fuel consumed is attributed mainly to the introduction of our new rescue vessel Hawkesbury 22 (Jill McGrath). We expect that these savings will continue with the imminent $64,000 refurbishment of our second vessel Hawkesbury 21 which includes replacing the present motors with 2 x 175HP Suzuki cable free outboards. 150 guests attended the dedication of rescue vessel Hawkesbury 22 in the grounds of the Mooney Mooney Club on February 8. Guests included Matt Kean MP Member for Hornsby, Chris Holstein MP Member for Gosford, Steve Russell Mayor of Hornsby Shire, RWC Directors Christine Butters and Dennis Hayward, CEO Edward Camilleri and Monique Fors Manager Mooney Mooney Club. RWC Director Dennis Hayward announced that the Club had agreed to extend water and electricity to the end of the club wharf to facilitate the cleaning and maintenance of Marine Rescue NSW and Rural Fire Service Vessels. The main training exercise for the quarter was the annual “NSW Rural Fire Service Combined District Fire Boat Exercise”. Marine Rescue had 3 vessels taking part in the 2 day exercise. Our responsibility was that of medical evacuations. The photo shows L to R Marine Rescue Hawkesbury volunteer Mark Raphael, Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons, MR Hawkesbury Operations Officer Peter Moore, and Unit Commander Merv Collins at the exercise. Our next major aquatic event will be the Upper Hawkesbury Power Boat Club’s running of the 78th Bridge to Bridge Power Boat and Water Ski race to be held on Sunday 4th May 2014. As always we are looking for trailer boat skippers to assist us with the safety supervision of this event. Fuel costs are reimbursed.

Small Boats Fishing Club Liaison Director: Terry Semlitzky Fishing weather has not been the best but fish are still being weighed in of a good size and quantity. Our March weigh in saw Karl take out the most fish for the month and Purdy with the largest being a 1.6 Mowong. A varied catch of flatheads, snapper, travelly, pigfish, jackets and mowong all weighed in. It has also been a record year so far of Purdy’s boat being in the water more than the life of it! Also a congratulations to Chris being a proud grandfather to Billie Therese. Both mum and bub doing well. Don’t forget to check the board for photos, trips and functions coming up, like the Presentation day and AGM.

SPearfishing Liaison Director: Christine Butters Summer has finally reached us, a couple of seasons late but a sweet reward for all the faithful. After months of upwelling green cold water, warm clear fish laden water has hit the coast. Good sightings of Kings, Bonito and Salmon with the exotics like Blue Barred Parrot fish, schools of Rainbow Runners, Gold spots etc. Eddie Skerry has a new battle scar to show off after undergoing surgery at Christmas to have half a lung removed with cancer. The operation was a success and 6 weeks later Ed’s back in the water with his mates. Ed is in the select group of divers that have been diving since the mid 60’s. Apart from sneaking a “ciggie” at school Ed’s been a non-smoker. Our Best regards to Ed and Kerry. Mark Schmitt and the usual suspects (Johno, Pappa and Billy) chased cold green water from Shell Harbour to Eden for a week of Cards and sightseeing. The big Fish Comp has been and gone with all the boys back laden down with prizes. Both Zeb and Christian placed in the Juniors 5 crews made it up this year. Conditions were just about perfect if you forgot about the “cold green water” It’s a bit of a club pilgrimage now, booking out the units and enjoying Shoal Bay. Taylor Shield at Ulladulla was a dud. “CGW” again vis was down to 2meters maybe 4 at best. Good training for the big crew of Junior’s that fronted up , a good weekend never the less with the Revesby boys packing out the cabins in the Caravan park There was that much snoring ear plugs were passed a round. Calla bay was a marked improvement with decent vis , low sea’s and plenty of fish (and a few sand flies). A monster steroid fed Wirrah and good Dusky Mowie were weighed by Sea Snippers Juniors. It looks like we are going to have a real junior comp this year with 48  THE JOURNAL  MAY / JUN / JUL

Zeb, Darcy and Christian keen and improving each dive. Both Zeb and Darcy scored Silver Drummer on the day, Darcy was disappointed as when he landed the Silver a large Kingy swam by a meter away circled once or twice then disappeared into the blue, those are the breaks. Looking forward to the Far South Coast Champs at Narooma, hope conditions are as good as last year. The clubs is hosting a intro to diving nights aimed at the young divers in the area to wise them up to the use of flags on floats and the proper use of spear guns. There is a lot of young and not so young divers out there uneducated in these areas that we take for granted. The aim is to bring them up to speed with the basics and to present the sport in an accessible safe manner. Thanks to Lee and the U.S.F.A. for supply such great reference material. Troy had a big crew of new divers out to experience spearfishing on a late summer’s day, flat warm clear water, blue sky and the National park as a back drop. It was all go with all the boys pumped and having the time of their life. Perfect day even without fins. Congratulations to Oly for placing 3rd in the new revised South Coast Champs, by all accounts a successful comp Even winning praise from Oly (Must have been the cooked breakfast) Congratulations to Sea Snippers for putting in the effort. That’s it, see you at Eden and don’t forget the fins Brad Montague Publicity Officer

‘No more. It’s the Law.’ is the message being promoted by the Responsible Drinking Program. It is a positive message for both the liquor industry and their patrons. It is about people enjoying themselves, but drinking alcohol responsibly and safely. The program continues its emphasis on ‘point of sale’ staff for responsible serving, and patrons for responsible drinking. The Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing continues to receive excellent feedback from the liquor industry throughout the State on the ‘No More. It’s the Law’ program. As well as targeting licensed venues for the point of sale component, the program continues to shift the Enjoy a Few… Not a Few Too Many message to the general community.
