Workers caught

A GROUP of eighteen illegal immigrants working in the Riverland were detained as part of an operation on Tuesday. Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) compliance officers detained 18 unlawful non-citizens at a farm in Sunlands, near Waikerie. The officers from Adelaide had

launched an operation seeking an individual at the farm and discovered the 18 people when executing a search warrant. The targeted individual was part of the group. During the operation, it is believed one of the workers attempted to hide in a caravan. A departmental spokesman said

the officers received information about the individual during a previous operation at Clare. “A great result like this should send a message that it is illegal for people to work in Australia without a visa which allows them to do so,” the spokesman said. The group consisted of 17 Indonesians – 12 men and five

women – and a Malaysian man working illegally on a farming property. “The group has been detained and will be transferred to a detention facility in Adelaide before being removed from Australia as soon as possible,” the spokesman said. “The department takes alle-

Holiday to the Riverland?

BRAD PERRY

You will be caught! NEWS that the Immigration Department has caught illegal workers in the Riverland may come as a shock for some people and not for others. While you see this type of thing happen across Australia, finding 18 people working illegally in the Riverland is obviously too close to home. What this incident has done is send a warning to growers, farmers and businesses that use international workers to ensure they comply. The Riverland is a haven for backpackers travelling to the region for work. Most of those travelling to the region would follow the right procedures but it is this small group that can ruin it for others. The message is clear, follow the rules or you will be caught.

FIeld Days are here

DESTINATION Riverland is taking its orange campaign to the locals with postcards designed to send to family and friends to be handed out at this year’s Riverland Field Days. The group believes that because most of the 15,000 people in attendance will be locals, they will be encouraging people to send the postcard that states - come and stay with us in the Riverland. One thousand postcards have been printed with the popular ‘smiley’ orange character that graced tourism publications in the 1970s, the main drawcard. Smiley stickers and or-

MASTERCHEF contestant and former Riverland resident Marion Grasby (pictured) may sneak a look at the Riverland Farmers’ Market stall at this year’s Riverland Field Days on Wednesday and Thursday. The popular cook told the Riverland Weekly her time in the region as a radio journalist saw her regularly head to the local markets. “When I was up in Renmark, the life of a news journalist is very long and hard and cooking for yourself wasn’t really that exciting,� she said.

“I did go to the Farmers’ Markets when I could on the weekends and I did love that Farmers’ Market. “I think it is amazing how there was an Asian produce stall there which is amazing and better than a lot of the Asian produce stalls I’ve seen in Farmers’ Markets around the country. “The citrus in the Riverland is unparalleled.� Marion will be the celebrity chef at this year’s Riverland Field Days.

KAHLON ESTATE WINES

Alternative wines impress THE Riverland’s shift to alternative varieties has been highlighted during the Riverland Wine Show judging in Renmark this week. With the event expanding to include a category for the alternative drops, Riverland Wine Show Society committee chair Paul Kernich said diversification of the region was impressive. “Last year was a tough season for reds but 2012 is looking very good and there are a couple of alternative varieties that are also looking quite good as well,” he said. “We are seeing more entries

in terms of wine which I think reflects wineries experimenting and producers experimenting with new and upcoming things. “There is certainly a push from producers to try and find varieties that are better suited to the warmer climate. “We’ve also added incentive to enter these alternative varieties with a trophy for best alternative wine.” Judging for the wine show took place in Renmark on Monday and Tuesday, with the results to be announced this Wednesday. Entries increased rapidly in

this year’s event from 250 last year to about 350 this year. “In recent years, due to economics more than anything, there had been a decline in entries but this year we’ve increased by 100 entries,” he said. With gold medals on the line for local wineries and those competing from Sunraysia and other inland irrigated areas, Mr Kernich said there have been some surprises so far. “We had very strong chardonnay,” he said. “Surprisingly a really good sauvignon blanc as well, which isn’t one of the most noteworthy

3D,” she said. “We might even be able to have the opportunity to bring back some of those 3D movies that we weren’t able to screen prior. “The fact they will actually be able to see it here in 3D as well, hopefully that will mean bigger audiences come through our doors.” Mrs Martin said the upgrades may also enable the theatre to be able to play the latest films earlier.

“Hopefully what that will mean is that we will be able to get movies a little bit sooner than what we are at the moment,” she said. “It will also open us up to more product because there are some films that just get released in a digital format, so this will give us more opportunities there. “If we can get the films sooner, that means we will lose less people that can’t wait for those big blockbusters and travel to other areas to see them.”

Future paddle steamer events?

THE Riverland may host a major meeting of paddle steamers within three years if plans come to fruition. After steaming to Mildura for the 100 year celebrations of the PS Melbourne, representatives of the vessels in attendance met to discuss the possibility of future events. “We had a meeting of all the representatives of the boats yesterday (Monday) and put in an initial plan to start planning for three or four years time to work out what we might do and have an event in South Australia or a cavalcade somewhere,” Friends of the PS Industry chairman David Nattrass said. “We couldn’t hope to have an event of this size every year because it was just be too much work for the volunteers but perhaps one in three years we might have a big event. “There are plans to maybe have another flotilla of craft come from upstream and co-ordinate a function at Renmark, Berri, Loxton, one of those

Riverland towns. “We need to slot that into the tourism calendar for those areas and work from there.” With the PS Industry expected to arrive home after lunch today, Mr Nattrass said the centenary event will not be forgotten. “The celebrations were a magnificent spectacle of 16 heritage paddle steamers on the river,” he said. “We were very proud and honoured to be part of that celebration and to celebrate 100 year of history with the Melbourne and our history. “I saw as many Riverlanders in Mildura on the weekend as what you see in Renmark, there was a lot of local Riverlanders that made the trip to Mildura to be part of the celebrations.” Captain of the PS Industry Frank Tucker said the festival was a unique and memorable experience which he said he will never see again. In fact, on Sunday 15,000 peo-

ple attended the celebrations on the Mildura riverfront and of those in attendance was Renmark’s Kathryn Carruthers and Margaret Duggin, dressed in period costume. “The atmosphere was very nostalgic, it was like revisiting the past,” she said. “Visually there was the steam and motion of the paddle wheels, the whistles could be heard kilometres away, it was just all happening and it was exhilarating. “Because we were the only ones dressed up in period costume, there would have been thousands of photographs taken of us.” n stunning: The flotilla of paddle steamers and heritage vessels on the way to Mildura and (right) Renmark’s Margaret Duggin and Kathryn Carruthers dressed up during the celebrations over the border.

Riverland citrus growers assist Foodbank AS Riverland citrus growers continue to struggle with returns for their fruit, there is a silver lining with Berri’s Foodbank branch receiving hundreds of bins of citrus to distribute to those in need. Since May, Foodbank has been working with a number of local growers and packers, who have donated produce that may have otherwise been dumped. “Berri is well known as a food hub and prominent citrus growing region, we are in the middle of a growing season and we’ve had some amazing support from many of the packers and growers throughout the region,” Foodbank SA general manager of special projects Leigh Royans said. “We’ve received semi-loads of stockfrom growers and packingsheds and generous offers for more. ”In particular, we acknowledge the donations from Hogwash Bend Orchard and Caudo’s

Yacht club hopes improved lake conditions will encourage more membership LAKE Bonney Yacht Club commodore Peter Dunk has revealed how the lowly water levels during the drought provided some of the most challenging times for the organisation in its 66 year history. When the lake was disconnected from the River Murray, Mr Dunk (pictured) said member numbers dropped to unexpected levels as sailing became more than challenging. The reconnection of Lake Bonney to the River Murray in 2010 rose water levels and member numbers returned. However, Mr Dunk said the club is still reeling from that time and is hoping to increase membership. The youngest club commodore in a history that dates back to 1946, Mr Dunk said lake levels are ideal and it is time to bring

the club back to its former glory. “When the lake was closed off we struggled quite a bit with being able to run events,” he said. “We were limited only to the club sailing because of the dangers of the lower water and that drove a few people away and we didn’t have as much interest because we couldn’t run the sail training in the mornings. “The people who were coming before the drought

didn’t come back again, so we are hoping to get some new members back in.” Currently the club has about 25 members and since the reconnection of the lake has hosted two state championship events. Mr Dunk, whose grandparents are former commodores of the club, said he is hoping to push member numbers into the hundreds and he would love to see the club thriving again. “The more members we get the more money we will have to keep the place running and provide the nice environment and recreation for the area,” he said. “Now we’ve got this water back we’ve really got to try and do a membership push and try and get past members to come back again and anyone who has ever thought of wanting to

try sailing. “Back in its heyday there was quite a big membership base, a lot of the older members who have moved onto other things but are still in the area and it would be great to see them back even just as social member.” Mr Dunk’s commitment to the club is unquestionable, having travelled from his home in Adelaide every spring and summer weekend since 2005. On September 29 and 30, the club is hosting its 66th opening regatta from 1pm onwards with sailing on both days and dinner on Saturday night. Mr Dunk hopes to see hundreds of people lining the shores of Lake Bonney and said the event is open to everyone of all ages. For more information visit www.lbyc.org.au

Lyrup resident calls for further funding on islet program

two men and seized their vehicles on Monday after they allegedly conducted burnouts when leaving the soccer ovals at Renmark on Sunday. Police located the vehicles and reported a 24-year-old man from Cooltong and a 20-yearold man from Renmark for misuse of motor vehicles. Both vehicles have been impounded for 28 days and both men will appear before the Berri Magistrate’s Court at a later date.

PUBLIC NOTICE TIME FOR RESPECT The South Australian Government has made a commitment to formally recognise Aboriginal peoples as the First People of South Australia by asking the Parliament to amend the South Australian constitution. An Advisory Panel has been established by the Government to seek the views of the South Australian community, particularly the Aboriginal community, on the wording and form which a statement of recognition in the state’s constitution should take.

Since being introduced, the program has seen 18 patients across the country receive the treatment. It is understood South Australia would need to contribute $100,000 annually to keep the program running, as would each of the other states. Mrs Harrigan said the transplant program desperately needs funding as it has been without for the past 12 months. Mrs Harrigan’s husband Kerry,

who also suffers from diabetes, said both of their lives have changed thanks to the program. The Harrigans are organising a Walk for a Cure to be held on November 4 starting at the Lyrup Club with donations to go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which helped to fund the islet transplant program. “They paid basically for my transplant and they’ve given me a life,” Mrs Harrigan said.

“It’s good that it continues to get support,” he said. “It is a large cost to the council and the community to keep it. “It is a fantastic facility but it doesn’t provide us much income, so to get some funding to help with the restration of it and the maintenance of it is good.” Mr Beaton said major upgrades to the theatre are expected to finish next month. “Part of the upgrade is a mens and disabled toilet will be in there now so that makes it more suitable for some of the bigger productions that can be done,” he said.

AFTER more than 30 years of being forced to have five injections per day, Lyrup type 1 diabetes sufferer Marg Harrigan was not sure how long she could remain healthy. “I was teaching full time with the year six and seven students and twice in two weeks I ended up in hospital, I was in front of the class and I couldn’t remember how I got to hospital,” she said. “What I was doing to work out where my sugar levels were I was just finger pricking anywhere up to 20 times a day because it was the only way to stay safe. “I couldn’t drive unless I did a finger prick and then I could still drop out. “If I was going 10 minutes down the road I would stop after five and do another test to make sure I was still okay.” That was before Mrs Harrigan became the first South Australian to receive a transplant under the islet transplant program, which helped her body to produce insulin. Family First MLC Robert Brokenshire has urged the State Government to get behind the push to continue the islet transplant program which is coming to the end of a successful period. Mrs Harrigan said since having two islet transplants in 2010, she has been able to live a fuller life, even travelling overseas. “After 36 years of being on five injections per day and then the pump for four and a half years, I have been insulin independent for the past two years so it is a major success,” she said. “To have the treatment wasn’t a hard decision to make because without it I don’t think I’d be here.” For the transplant program to continue nationally, $2.8 million is needed annually for centres in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Red gum recovery THE river red gums along the River Murray wetlands and floodplains in the Riverland are showing signs of recovery in response to recent high flow events. Natural Resources, SA Murray-Darling Basin wetland project officer Callie Nickolai said that mature river red gums are exhibiting new growth in the form of tip shoots and epicormic growth. “Wide spread bands of new saplings have been found on the floodplain, which are dominated by river red gums and includes black box. “So it is really important that the area receives further high flow events to maintain the health of the young trees, as well as the established mature trees. “The River Murray in SA has experienced infrequent high flows over the last few decades and the health of river red gums has declined. River red gums that were inundated recently are looking healthier but there are still a number of trees at higher elevations on the floodplain which were not inundated by the recent high waters. The tree species is vital to the river’s ecology as they are an important habitat for fauna. Bats and some bird species such as Regent Parrots (a threatened species) and Grey Teal ducks nest in hollows, Australasian Darters and Cormorants build their nests in the branches over-hanging water, frogs and insects live under the bark.

Imagine what it would be like to have the skills and confidence to save lives – to learn leadership skills and gain a broader community perspective. Aside from the medical skills they learn, SA Ambulance Service volunteers gain from every aspect of the vital role they play.

Ambulance volunteers come to this calling at all ages, from all walks of life. Some work in full-time jobs and others have more time on their hands. If you’re ready to change your life and the lives of others or want to find out more about volunteering call 1800 655 306 or visit our website: saambulance.com.au.

something we want to keep in the Riverland,” he said. “Now we’ve got another league close to us at Gawler, it gives us that little bit more incentive to get it going.” The association has already arranged for a tournament to be held in Barmera in November with interstate players expected to travel to the region to play. Currently the association has about 20 players but it is hoping to boost that number to over 100. Mr Anderson said previ-

ously interest waned but he is hoping to reinvigorate the sport and bring some new enthusiasm to the game for the younger generation. “There was not a lot of interest, there was not enough people with the desire and enthusiasm to keep it going,” he said. “We really want to concentrate on getting the younger kids involved.” Inline hockey coach Wayne Bland said he was originally involved in building the arena and believes it

must be used as a unique attraction for the region. Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said the association’s fees will be waved for year. “Council said they will wave the fees for next year but they have also said that there will be a report to the next council meeting about writing off the outstanding debt that is there because it was a previous committee and the council itself has already paid the loan off,” he said.

Consider the future… With more sun-filled days in our Riverland than almost anywhere in else in Australia it makes sense to install solar and protect against soaring power prices. But solar is a life-time investment and it’s important for your security and peace of mind to engage an accredited installer, trained and certified to ensure your system meets industry best practice and all relevant Australian Standards. Newman Mundy is listed as a preferred supplier with Australia’s Clean Energy Council. So call Newman on 0433 349 433 and find out how solar can benefit your pocket and our planet. You won’t believe how easy and inexpensive it is to make the change. Consider your future.

Jazz man in town ABOUT 150 students were privileged enough to experience the soothing sounds of jazz artist James Morrison in the Riverland last week. World renowned jazz artist James Morrison visited the Riverland last Thursday to host workshops. The international performer travelled the region after the Riverland Stage Band’s efforts at the at the 2012 Generations in Jazz National Stage Band Awards held in Mount Gambier earlier this year. During the awards, musical director Alan Geddie was given the Spirit of Jazz Award and as a prize he was offered the opportunity to host Mr Morrison. Orchestral Supplies Australia general manager Anita Caltabiano, which sponsors the event, said hosting Mr Morrison is a memorable prize. “The reason they chose Alan to win the music di-

rectors award is he has been doing this program in the Riverland for so many years and it involves so many students from the whole region,” she said. “It is such a massive effort that it is great to be able to put something back into the community. “James is such an advocate of music education, anything that is music education he absolutely wants to be involved in.” Mrs Caltabiano said the students get a lot out of the workshops and concerts, guided through by Mr Morrsion. “This would normally cost about $10,000 to have James come to their school and run a workshop and spend a whole day with the kids,” she said. “The kids get a lot out of it and it is good motivation for them and it is good for the retention rates in the band programs for kids to keep learning each year.”

Riverlanders given opportunity to provide licensing feedback PLUMBERS, gas fitters, electricians and real estate agents in the Riverland are being encouraged to attend information sessions in Berri next week about current proposals for a national regulation of occupations. Being held by Consumer and Business Services, the sessions are designed to provide infromation about the proposals for a National Occupational Licensing System (NOLS) which are currently available for public comment. A streamlined, nationally consistent licensing scheme would aim to increase workers’ mobility, and remove overlapping and inconsistent regulation between jurisdictions for the licensing of occupational areas. The national system would replace the various current state and territorybased licensing regimes and employers and consumers would be able to check a national register of licence holders. The NOLS proposals for each occupation are outlined in the Consultation Regulation Impact Statements, which aim to seek views from licence holders, business and other interested parties. For more information visit www.cbs. sa.gov.au/nols.html South Australian regional information sessions will be held as follows:

Solar farm propsal still on the agenda A PROPOSAL by the Berri Barmera Council to create a solar farm at the former Berri Race Course is still on the agenda, despite more than a year without action. Last year, council was in discussion with Clare business May Brothers about a potential partnership to create the farm. Since then Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said he has spoken to some local major proprietors about being involved. “We did talk to some of the major proprietors who has an issue with how

much their power is going up,” Mr Beaton said. “What might have been good technology two years ago has probably changed now and that’s the problem, making the numbers stack up so we can get the funding and try to have something that gives back to the community as well. “We’ll talk to the Federal Government to see if what we are proposing is something they will fund or whether there is different forms or different technology now that they prefer to try and put the

money towards.” Mr Beaton said a solar farm in Berri would have major benefits for council and ratepayers. “It would help us diversify some of our income streams as well as providing a community benefit in reducing some of the electricity costs, even if it’s only for council projects of things like the recreation centres,” he said. “If we can do something that goes wider and has a greater benefit to the community that will be good for the town in the future.”

THE largest solar farm in the Riverland, potentially costing more than $40 million dollars, has been earmarked for Berri and dependent on funding, could go ahead as early as next year. The former Riverland Racing Club land located in Berri is the proposed site for the Berri Barmera Council to construct the large solar farm. The council, which is working closely with Adelaide company May Brothers, has applied to the Riverland Futures Taskforce for part of the $20 million State Government money pool to fund a feasibility study into the project. Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said the project would not only bring income

REPORT BY

BRAD PERRY to council but would be another industry option for the Riverland. “The Riverland and north of Port Augusta are the best places in South Australia for solar, so we’re hopeful we might be able to influence the State and Federal government to help to fund it,” he said. “It’s just another source of income for the council but also it could easily start off another industry for the Riverland. “If we have something that proves that people can make money and it’s

WITH the arrival of spring, snakes are posing a greater threat to pets as the warmer weather and dryer conditions put an end to their winter hibernation. Australia’s peak veterinary body, the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA), is urging pet owners to take precautions to prevent deadly encounters with snakes when venturing outside with their furry friends. Dr David Neck, President of AVA’s small animal special interest group, said that snakes tend to be most active towards the end of the day. “Snake bites tend to occur in the late afternoon or early evening,” he said. “Snakes also tend to be attracted to rodents and rubbish to hide under. “Dog owners should avoid snake prone areas, particularly if they are walking their dog at the

end of the day. “Snakes can also venture into backyards.” Dr Neck said it is important for pet owners to be aware of the signs of a snake bite as owners may not actually see their dog or cat being bitten. “Symptoms can vary with different snakes but sudden onset of seizures, vomiting, weakness in the limbs and inability to move may be observed,” he said. “Soon after the symptoms occur, the animal may collapse with severely laboured breathing.”

This is the first article of a fortnightly update regarding the implementation of the new waste collection system to start in January 2013. Why is the waste collection changing? Over recent years the rules for how waste is collected and disposed has changed dramatically. The Berri Barmera Council will no longer be able to bury waste at its Monash Landfill (dump) from December this year. The Council therefore needs to transport the waste out of the region as with the other Riverland Councils and pay to have it buried at another site which is very expensive for freight and disposal. The less waste that is buried the better it is for the environment and equally important the cost is reduced, though it is still a lot higher than the old system. To reduce the long term cost to the community Council is introducing a recycling and green waste collection to stop as much waste going to landfill. More details will be provided in future articles and the Councils will have a booth at the Riverland Field Days. Where will I get rid of my rubbish in the future? Council will have a Waste Transfer Station where rubbish will need to be sorted into big bins before it is transported out of the region for disposal. This new system will also be expensive and is why Council is looking to supply recycling and green waste to reduce the times you need to go to the facility. Will Council have another Hard Waste Collection? Yes, Council will advertise the dates shortly for the free collection from towns and villages.

Mallee’s stunning spring colours

Environment & Heritage

dreds of native plant species that call the Mallee home and who – like many of us – revel and delight in the onset of Spring! Not all plants flower in spring and the rotation of flowering plant species across the entire year is of great importance to animals. But Spring is the finale in the story; the very centre of the drama when the Mallee erupts with style. Rainfall during winter sets the scene, and while not a soaking year in the Mallee so far, enough rain has fallen to encourage the Orchids, Heaths, Wattles, Peas and Daisies into flower in Ngarkat. Already the earth-hugging leaves of orchids appear on the ground, waiting to grow their delicate blooms in October. And with them come all manner of critters and creatures that flap and flutter. So visit for the flowers and admire the song of spring time birds feeding on the abundance of nectar, and the dozens of native insect species feasting on pollen, from beetles to butterflies. Ngarkat is a magical place in spring and we encourage you to come on down.

MATTERS

A SLEEPY lizard crossing a back road on the way to Ngarkat Conservation Park reminds us that spring is on the way and with it wildflowers, which rival any seen elsewhere. The gripping and pervasive cold of the Mallee winter gives way to sunny bright mornings and glorious golden sunsets over mallee-stems stretching to the horizon and across fields of barley and canola. The yellow flowering canola hints at a profound shift: conditions are becoming ripe for the flowering of our natural neighbours, hun-

Ngarkat can be visited for a day or a weekend. It can be accessed by 2WD vehicle or toured extensively by 4WD. Visit as a family, as a touring group, or as a widespread group of naturalists intent on photographing blooms and blossoms for identification later at a more whimsical pace. Come before October 31 and enjoy driving the stunning Border Track or roasting marshmallows over a crackling campfire while reminiscing over that flower or this bird; “dude did you see the orchid with the landing-pad for wasps” you might exclaim or “how about those red tubular flowers, the birds could not get enough of!” For more information on visiting Ngarkat Conservation Park, please call 85763690 or visit the website at http:// www.environment.sa.gov.au/ parks/Find_a_park/Browse_ by_region/Murray_River/ Ngarkat_Conservation_Park. Ngarkat is roughly a two-hour drive from both the Riverland and Adelaide. Please observe all park rules and regulations when visiting.

Public meeting to be held in Waikerie for...

Men’s shed push INSPIRED by her brother Rob Todd’s work with the creation of the Barmera Men’s Shed, Waikerie’s Nan Mackereth is hoping to help establish a similar facility in Waikerie. A meeting will be held on Tuesday to discuss the establishment of a Men’s Shed in Waikerie. Mrs Mackereth first became involved in the concept of creating a Men’s Shed in Waikerie after she saw a need for it and has since become the facilitator of the project. She said having a Men’s

Shed in the Waikerie area will give males the opportunity to socialise and use their skills while enjoying each other’s company. “It will mean to the men in this district somewhere they can go and if they don’t want to be making things, they can just sit down and have a chin wag and talk about things,” she said. “So many men, when they retire, don’t have any structure to their lives and they don’t socialise. “Partners and wives should encourage their fellas to get out because that

will also give them another perspective which is good for relationships. “I think this is going to open up a whole new area where men can be using their hands because they can be making things and they can have garage sales.” The public meeting will be held at the Waikerie Club at 10am on Tuesday and Rob Todd will be the guest speaker on the day. To RSVP for the event contact the Waikerie Club on 8541 2899 by tomorrow.

Facebook comments lead to arrest A 19-year-old woman from Renmark was reported for assault on Friday after it is alleged that she punched another girl in the face as a result of comments being made on Facebook. She will appear in the Berri Magistrate’s Court at a later date. Police are urging that where inappropriate information appears on a

social networking websites, users can contact the website administrator to request that the offensive content is removed. Meanwhile, a 21-yearold man from Waikerie was arrested for driving unlicensed and breaching his bail conditions, whilst a 19-year-old man from Waikerie was arrested for breaching his licence conditions.

It is alleged the 21-year-old man was breaching his bail conditions by being seated in the driver’s seat and that his vehicle was towing the vehicle driven by the 19-year-old man. Neither man held a current driver’s licence and both will appear before the Berri Magistrate’s Court at a later date.

Mindarie Halidon cup

FEATURE

Big crowds expected to head to Mindarie Halidon Cup

Ready to back a winner

M

ORE than 1200 people are expected to travel to the Mindarie Halidon Race Course this Sunday for the event referred to as the Melbourne Cup of the Mallee. In its 92nd year, the Mindarie Halidon Cup continues to grow in popularity with 19 marquees already booked and plenty of interest for attendance on race day. Held by the Mindarie Halidon Racing Club, the event is unique in every sense of the word and it is certainly an experience to see horses racing in the Mallee. Mindarie Halidon Cup Committee secretary Krystina Durdin said about 1200 people attended last year’s big day and she expects even more in attendance this Sunday. “As long as we have really good weather I think it is going to be quite a big day,” she said. “Going by the phone calls and the interest we have had hopefully we are expecting a really big crowd. “We’ve had more marquees than last year, it just gets increasingly popular from year to year.” Mrs Durdin said Riverland towns continue to embrace the event and people from across the Mallee, Tailem Bend, Mannum, Swan Reach, Blanchetown and Adelaide are expected to

be in attendance. “There seems to be growing interest coming from the Riverland compared to other years,” she said. “There is a lot of new groups, especially a lot of social clubs linked to work or hotels.” The family friendly event hosts seven races over the day with gates open at 11am and the first race to be held at 12.30pm. “We try to make it family friendly with a jumping castle which is free for the kids and they like to go down and check out the horses that are in the stables before the races,” Mrs Durdin said. Over the years, the Halidon Fashions on the Field event has been a major attraction with those in attendance putting in a big effort to impress the crowd. “Fashions on the Field is getting more popular,” Mrs Durdin said. “That has become quite an entertaining aspect of the races and it also adds a bit more atmosphere to it as well. “Last year we had good feedback on people having a really good time.” The overall winner of the event receives two passes to the Murray Bridge Gold Cup and entry into its fashion parade with a chance to show

off their impressive outfits at the Adelaide Cup fashion show. Bookmakers will be on hand to take bets for those daring to back a horse during the Cup. “It is something different where you can grab a group of friends and a lot of people are actually not usual race goers but they have fun having a bet on a horse and they might pick it from the way it looks or the name it has,” Mrs Durdin said. There is plenty of space for the family to relax and enjoy the day. “There is nothing like it in the Riverland and that is probably why we get more people from that way,” Mrs Durdin said. “People seemed to like the idea of sitting there with their picnic food. “It’s the end of football and netball season and it is a chance to wind down.” The event is fully catered with both bar and canteen facilities and there is a strictly no Bring Your Own alcohol rule and glass is not permitted. n action: A huge crowd watching the races at the Mindarie Halidon Cup last year as the winning horse crosses the finish line.

■ IMPORTANT: Families should be encouraged to seek life insurance to protect themselves against the unthinkable.

Talking to your children about life insurance MANY adult children will discuss their major financial decisions with their parents. Major events like getting married, buying a house, or even changing jobs are good opportunities to talk to your children about life insurance. One of the good things about taking out life insurance from a younger age is that premiums are often very affordable. For example, a 30 year-old male clerical worker can take out $500,000 life insurance (with Total and Permanent Disability cover), plus $4000 a month income protection, for around $3 per day (source: OnePath Life Limited, ABN 33 009 657 176, AFSL 238341). This cover will provide some financial relief in the event of serious sickness or injury.

It will also make available a lump sum on death that may be used to pay off debts, medical bills or help the family meet ongoing living costs. The best way to help your children get the right level of protection for themselves (and you) is to encourage them to discuss their life insurance circumstances with a financial adviser. # ‘The Lifewise/NATSEM Underinsurance Report’ – February 2010 † ‘Analysis of Insurance Needs’, Rice Warner Actuaries – May 2005 ^ Centrelink Disability Support Pension, maximum single rate from 20 March 2011 Danny Kearney is an Authorised Representative of AMP Financial Planning Pty Ltd, ABN 89 051 208 327, AFS License No. 232706.

For many people the prospect of applying for a credit card can be daunting, so here are some top tips to help ease the worry when seeking a credit card. Before you get a credit card Use a budget planner to help you plan your spending. When choosing a credit card, shop around and compare fees and interest rates.

Once you have a credit card Always pay your credit

card on time to avoid extra interest or late payment fees. Keep track of spending on your credit card so you stay within your limit. Pay more than the minimum repayment each month, to pay off your balance more quickly and save on interest. (If you can only make the minimum monthly repayment, switch to a card with a low interest rate and pay off more when you can.)

Set up a direct debit to pay a fixed amount off the balance owing each payday. Don’t take cash advances because they usually attract higher interest.

Use store cards wisely and be aware what fees you’ll pay. Use a credit card calculator to work out the fastest way you can pay off your credit card.

FIELD DAYS

Something for everyone

T

HE Riverland Field Days is back for another year and there promises to be something for everyone at the two day event next Thursday and Friday. Boasting more than 400 exhibitors, this year the Riverland Field Days has a number of new attractions, a celebrity chef plus a variety of stalls to see. Based at Barmera, the Riverland Field Days is expected to attract about 16,000 people through the gates next week, with many making a full day, or even two, out of the event. Riverland Field Days secretary Tim Grieger said the response from

businesses both locally and outside the region has again been very positive. “It’s good to see the strength of the response we’ve got, given that we are still working through tough times,” Mr Grieger said. “The future is obviously looking far better than what it was a few years ago and the feeling of positiveness is coming through.” Mr Grieger is hoping the sun will shine on the Field Days. “If we have two really nice days, weather wise, it encourages more people to come out,” he said. With so much to do and see, Mr Grieger said the day can be planned through the Riverland Field Days

official program. “There is such a large range and depth of exhibits here in not just product servicing but information about what different services are doing, technology and there is a lot to be learnt by walking and stopping at sites,” he said. “There is a wealth of information available at the Field Days.” While there will be the regul regular attractions

There is a wealth of information available at the Field Days. such as Irrigation Avenue, The Grain Lane, Tech Hub and the Food and Wine Village, this year the Field Days offers more entertainment with the V8 race car simulator, World War II vintage equipment

“It is a great mix and variation of different activities that makes the two days a really enjoyable, fun experience.” Those in attendance will also be able to take advantage of the door

prizes on offer, while there are some deilicious catering options. “There is a great range of food available and there are rest areas, so you can take time wandering around to see the exhibits but also take time out to spend at lunch or at the cooking demonstrations,” Mr Grieger said. The event will also be a boost for the local economy with accommodation tipped to be booked out during the week. “We’ve got busloads from Adelaide coming down for the Field Days,” Mr Greiger said. “It illustrates the interest this has created far afield. “It’s a huge economic boost in terms of accommodation, food and fuel, while exhibitors use local transport and hiring companies. “It all flows through to the rest of the community.”

There is a key focus on the caravan, camping and off-road section for retirees and there will be plenty for the children to participate in with the popular children’s safari. “There is the Rabobank stage which has got the Ag Art Wear competition on parade and the musical presentation from the schools is always interesting,” Mr Grieger said.

Benefits for primary producers at Field Days

One stop shop

RIVERLAND Field Days Committee chairman Anthony Fulwood believes the event has a very real place in the field of primary production. A citrus, winegrape and avocado grower himself, Mr Fulwood knows the Riverland Field Days offers growers and farmers a unique, broad range of knowledge all in the one place. There is not only benefits gained by the primary producers at the event but the exhibitors also come away with positive feedback. Mr Fulwood said growers can see and assess the need and value of the latest equipment and services available to their specific industry. While the event is essentially a horticultural and ag-

entertainment options. He said there is much work that goes into preparing for the Riverland Field Days. “We go from straight after the last event and we are flat out until today,” he said. “It is a 12 month job. “When we need people to help, we get people who are willing to help.” In his second consecutive year as chairman of the committee and his fourth overall, Mr Fulwood said he enjoys being able to interact with those people involved. “It’s about the interaction with other bureau members or growers from other towns and talking about ideas and the pleasure of putting something on for the community,” he said.

Helping to secure your home FORTUNATELY he likes to drive because RAA’s security sales and service technician Jeff Watkins clocks up thousands of kilometres travelling around the Riverland to keep his customers safe and secure. The Renmark native and father of two is responsible for sales, installation and maintenance of RAA alarm systems and has been an RAA employee for three years. “I enjoy the different people I get to meet and because I service the whole region as far as Swan Reach, I really get around,” he said. In March this year, Jeff received his distinctive new RAA secure services van having worn out his trusty white ute, and he reckons it’s a beauty. Jeff said rural properties have specific security challenges, especially as country folk are not always bothered with locking doors, cars or tractors. “I encourage customers not to become complacent about security,” he said. “My city based workmates update me on trends, like burglars taking keys and escaping in the homeowner’s vehicle, that will come our way eventually,” he said. The secret to helping customers improve their security is to be a good problem solver and to under-

stand the criminal mind, according to Jeff. “You’ve got to ask yourself, how would they break into a building, and also how would they leave,” he said. “That’s where you put cameras, sensors and control boxes.” Jeff does concede that the job presents some particular challenges. “I’m not a small guy so sometimes getting up into tight roof spaces can be difficult but the customer’s security comes first and where there is a will there is a way,” he said.

RAA’s top spring clean security tips CLEAR hedges and bushes from doors and windows as they provide a hiding place for thieves and can also be a fire hazard. MAIN doors should have dead-bolts as a minimum and all accessible windows should

be securable. ITEMS stored in sheds or garages are easy targets. Something as simple as a large padlock can deter would-be thieves, otherwise you can extend your alarm coverage. MAKE sure your security stickers are visible and request new ones if need be. SENSOR lights are great for summer BBQs and can also act as a deterrent for thieves. CLEAR your yard of all implements that could be used to break into your home, or as a weapon, including brooms, shovels, tools and ladders. When you’re cleaning outside, take a look through the windows and if you can see any valuables or car keys, move them! CHANGE the batteries in your smoke alarm and revisit your fire plan. For more information about RAA Secure Services, call 8202 4695 or visit your local RAA shop at Renmark or Berri.

Showcasing the Riverland River Murray Training Workplace Training Specialits THE Riverland Field Days is one of the most important events in the region, according to Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone. Not only does the event provide a large financial injection for the Riverland economy but Mr Whetstone (pictured) believes the Field Days show why the region is a key area for the state’s horticulture and agriculture industries. “I think it’s a great event showcasing the region and it really does show what we present to the state,” he said. “Our strong horticulture base, the diversity that we have and also our service industries that not only service the Riverland region but in a lot of cases, service all of South Australia and Western Victoria. “The Riverland is just showcasing what they do best being food producers, being leaders in Mallee sustainable farming and showcasing what we do to the rest of the world.” Mr Whetstone said the Year of the Farmer theme is fitting for this year’s Field Days, given the resilience of farmers and growers over the years. “It is a great year to celebrate the Year of the Farmer and the importance of agriculture in South Australia,” he said. “Agriculture is underpinning the state’s economy this year, as it has for 175 years.” He also praised the efforts of the volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to prepare the Riverland Field Days. “Without the support of volunteers the event would not occur and I congratulate each and every one of them for their efforts,” Mr Whetstone said. Mr Whetstone’s office in Berri will be closed and relocated at the Riverland Field Days for the duration of the event, at site 520.

2012 Riverland FIELD DAYS Honda’s savings on offer at the Riverland Field Days WITH summer just around the corner, Honda Motorcycle & Power Equipment are excited to be bringing their premium products – and some great savings – to this year’s Riverland Field Days. Honda’s current ‘Love my Honda, Love the Savings’ sales campaign has seen more and more domestic and commercial operators getting their hands on quality Honda products. Local independent Honda Dealers Waikerie Honda and Loxton Motorcycles will once again be a part of the Field Days this year. With Honda’s full range of garden care equipment and generators on show, as well as plenty of offroad bikes for kids of all sizes to check out, the Honda tent is sure to be hot property. Honda takes an uncompromising approach to combining efficiency, reliability and safety. These offers will enable more people to take advantage of Honda’s range and save money not only on the initial purchase but on the maintenance and re-fuelling of Honda’s 4-Stroke products, compared to 2-Stroke products. Honda Power Equipment national sales manager Ray Briffa said the wide range of products on sale means that no matter what a customer is looking for in the leadup to spring and summer, Honda products are now more accessible and affordable than ever. “Our range of power equipment products is diverse and with these savings on offer across the board, there’s bound to be something for everyone,� he said. “From entry level lawn mowers to our flagship EU20i Generator, the vast majority of Honda products

■TOP PRODUCTS: Honda products and the expert sales team will be on offer at the Riverland Field Days. will come with great savings all the way through spring and summer. “They’re also backed by a combination of a four year warranty and our outstanding after sales support, giving anyone purchasing a Honda product complete peace of mind.� The HRU19K1 Buffalo Buck lawn mower is perfect for residential use, with low fuel consumption and with a powerful, long-lasting 4-Stroke GCV160 OHV/OHC engine. Like all Honda mowers it starts first time every time and contains Honda’s Engine Brake Technology for added safety. For a limited time, the HRU19K1 costs just $699, meaning a saving of $100*. With the addition of an optional mulcher, the HRU19M1 Buffalo

Buck Mulch & Catch is now just $739, a saving of $100*. Other Honda garden care products, such as the top-selling UMS425 Bent Shaft Brushcutter (now $299, save $70) and HHB25 Blower (now $499, save $60), will also offer customers even better value this season and will be on show at the Riverland Field Days for all to see. Honda’s lightweight and whisper-quiet EU20i Generator is another product offering big savings to its owner. Delivering better than commercial quality electricity and up to 15 hours continuous operation, the EU20i is perfect for long summer evenings spent outdoors with friends and family. With a saving of $200* off the

previous price, the investment in a EU20i is now only $1899. “Given that spring and summer are on our doorstep, Honda owners can make the most of their new equipment as soon as they get them home and all throughout the warmer months,� Mr Briffa said. “Great value, however, can take longer to recognise. “Honda products address environmental and safety concerns and our 4-Stroke technology offers superior efficiency, so you know that a Honda product will be offering excellent value for many seasons to come.� In addition to Honda’s full power equipment range, the team from Waikerie Honda and Loxton Motorcycles will also have a number of off-road motorcycles, includ-

ing ATV’s on show at the Riverland Field Days. Giving locals the chance to get up close and personal with premium Honda products is one of the reasons that Waikerie Honda and Loxton Motorcycle staff love coming back to Riverland Field Days. Steve and Ian from Waikerie Honda and Josh and Quincy from Loxton Motorcycles will be in attendance to help with any questions. Honda Territory Manager Ante Cuk is excited to once again be associated with this exciting event. “To have so many Honda tools and toys in the one place is not only great exposure for the Honda brand but it’s also the perfect opportunity for resi- dents of the Riverland region to check out our quality products,� Mr Cuk said. “Combining our great value products with quality sales and service training for our independent Honda dealers gives our customers peace of mind that a Honda product is going to work as hard – and for as long – as needed.� *Please check the Honda website for more details on product savings at www.honda.com.au

Popular sites are back THE Riverland Field Days has a wide range of popular areas to head to during the event but four regular categories, The Grain Lane, The Tech Hub, Wine and Food Village and Irrigation Avenue, are a must visit.

The Grain Lane ON the cusp of a bumper season, Riverland and Mallee farmers have the opportunity to utilise a wealth of expertise in The Grain Lane. One of the newer concepts to the Riverland Field Days, The Grain Lane highlights exhibits of interest to the broadacre and dryland farmer. From farm machinery and products to services for the grain farmer, The Grain Lane will incorporate Grain Assist Marketing, AWB Grain, Riverland Farm Machinery, Eglinton Agri Solutions, Elders, Landmark Riverland, Riverland Sheds, Riverland Welding and Tools, Grain Corp, Plus Trucks and Transport, Utility Vehicles, Welding and Tools, Viterra, GBC Motors, Harberger Farm Supplies, Hood's Tractors, Errol Matschoss Motors, Marshall Spreaders, Leda Farm Equipment and Dodgshun Medlin. The Grain Lane offers a unique opportunity for farmers to have a number of services all available in one area.

“It has been something that has been growing at the Field Days for a number of years and now we've got this particular focus, not just to identify one particular lane but in the general concept of what there is for the dryland farmer,� Riverland Field Days secretary Tim Grieger said. “This year we've got six grain marketers there and their whole focus is on Australian farming. “We'd like to get the message out that they are there and they will come again in the future if the response from the farming community is good.�

The Tech Hub TECHNOLOGY has changed daily life and has had a profound impact on the Riverland Field Days. With farmers, growers and businesses across the Riverland and Mallee relying on technology in their workplace and at home, the Telstra Tech Hub offers many options and expertise. A special focus on information technology at the Riverland Field Days will see presentations on home technology. In its second year, Riverland Field Days secretary Tim Grieger said the Tech Hub will continue to draw people in. “Technology of course is an essential part of everyday life, it's how we live and breathe in a

communication sense and that's why we've got the Telstra Tech Hub,� he said. “In the Tech Hub there will be a set up of a typical home and lounge chairs and the technology units that you can use, feel, touch and work in a home sense.� Make sure you visit the Tech Hub at site 413.

Food and Wine Village THE unique Food and Wine Village continues to grow each year with 16 exhibitors at the 2012 Riverland Field Days. Not only is it a showcase of the fine and scrumptious food the Riverland can produce but it gives people the chance to relax and mingle with the region's producers. This year the layout of the village will also be different with outdoor settings of tables and chairs in a central area, linking with the cooking marquee. The exhibitors at site 540 include 919 Wines, Arrosto Coffee Roasters, Backyard Bread, Banrock Station Wines, Chellodene Wines, Destination Riverland, European Cuisine, Riverland Farmers' Markets, Frank Martins Oysters, Illalangi Wines, One Stop Gluten Free, Riverland Vine Improvement, Southern Emu, Spook Hill Wines, Whistling Kite Wines and Woolshed Brewery.

■CUSTOMER SERVICE: The team behind the Riverland’s very own beer will be at the Field Days in the Food and Wine Village and (below) the popular Irrigation Avenue.

Irrigation Avenue WHILE it may be one of the more standard features at the Riverland Field Days, Irrigation Avenue is not short of interesting and informative products and exhibits. Those involved in the horticulture industry will know of Irrigation Avenue offering applications, systems and the latest in technology. At site 464 exhibitors include AgriExchange and River Rain Irrigation, Aqualab, Ausrain Irrigation, Formatti Pump Repairs, Grundfos Pumps, Loxton Irrigation, Measurement Engineering, Netafim, Triangle Water Equipment, Think-

water Riverland and Waterfind. “It provides the opportunity for the irrigation community to catch up on the latest in technology and distribution systems,� Riverland Field Days secretary Tim Grieger said.

Vintage World War II equipment display set to be popular

Cannon fodder

A NEW exhibit to the Riverland Field Days this year is the vintage World War II equipment display. As part of the display a cannon will also be fired, expected to attract a number of people to witness the event. The 25 pound cannon will make the trip from the Edinburgh Military Museum and be fired twice a day at 10.30am and 2.30pm.

Co-ordinator John Fisk said the 1942 gun tractor and gun from World War II will be fired during the Riverland Field Days. There will also be a rifle drill from the weapon used in both World Wars. Mr Fisk said the cannon travels all over Australia to various events to be showcased and is always popular. “We have to give peo-

ple plenty of warning,� he laughed. “It shoots out a flame which goes out about five metres but you don’t usually see that with the naked eye, cameras can catch it.� Mr Fisk said a military vehicle, ammunition tray and gun case will all be on display, while those firing the cannon will wear the uniform from the 1950s.

Marion’s scrumptious menu M

ARION Grasby has come a long way since working as a journalist in Renmark five years ago. The MasterChef contestant will be the celebrity cook at this year’s Riverland Field Days and she is more than happy to be back. “It is just nice to go back to a region that I really loved living in,� she told the Riverland Weekly. “Even though I’m not South Australian, I still think of myself as a South Australian.� Inspired by her Asian heritage, Marion plans to give those in attendance at the Riverland Field Days an infusion of delicious flavours during two demonstrations daily. “Asian flavours are my favourite food, so everything has a bit of an Asian slant to it which hopefully everyone will enjoy,� she said. Providing an example of what she will be cooking at the Riverland Field Days, Marion said a recipe of crispy prawn noodles and another involving lamp dumplings and also a dish with local lamb cutlets are on the menu. She said the demonstrations will be targeted at home cooks and will be simple but tasty. “I don’t think of myself as a chef, I think of myself as a home cook,� Marion said. “Most people in the food industry would love to be a two Michelin Star chef but I don’t have 10 hours to spend cooking a dish for dinner. “For me food is about being able to enjoy the cooking process which means if it has to be quick, it has to be quick but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t have to be tasty.� It has been quite a journey for Marion since leaving the ABC newsroom in the Riverland in 2007 and studying a masters in food and wine history in the city. “I had been doing that for two years and wondering how I was going to make food my job,� she said. “What MasterChef has done is really push me into the food industry that I wanted to get into anyway. “Going on MasterChef really helped me to realise that I could do something like a food range, I could be a food writer and write cookbooks. “For me it was a really big launching pad.� Since then Marion has released her own food range, written cookbooks and for magazines and held cooking demonstrations and talks across Australia. “I love doing the food range, it has prob-

ably been one of the biggest accomplishments I’ve been able to achieve so far,� she said. “More than 120,000 families buy my packs to take home for dinner every month and when I had just left the Riverland and started my masters in food and wine history, I would never have realised that would be the case. “While it is weird seeing my head on the box, it’s nice knowing that it’s there.� Recently returning to the MasterChef kitchen for the All-Stars series was a great experience, according to Marion. “MasterChef All-Stars was so fun because when I did MasterChef the first time we were living in the house for six months, so you become really good friends with the other contestants,� she said. “Being able to go back and hang out with everyone, plus meet a lot of the guys from the other series was really fun, I don’t think I’ve laughed so much in a small space of time as I did filming that show.� Marion said her career has shown that anyone can pursue their dream job. “Food has always been such a natural part of my life,� she said. “My mum’s a chef and we grew up travelling all over the world and my family are really big foodies and I’ve just always loved it. “It’s like anything, when you have a passion for something...you just want to do it all the time.� Her knowledge of the food industry will be passed on at the Riverland Field Days when Marion judges the High Schools Cooking Challenge, where she will also provide advice. “I think it is great to be able to chat to high school students or younger people and say to them, ‘it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, what school you go to, you can always achieve something in life’,� she said. “I love being involved with young people just to let them know that they can get somewhere one day.� What about some advice for budding chefs and home cooks? “You need to not get so stressed out, I always feel that food can sense when you are scared, so you just need to relax,� she laughed. “Everyone makes mistakes. “I’ve cooked plenty of disaster meals and I think there are far worst things going on in the world, there are droughts, there are fires, famines and wars and burning your roast lamb is not the end of the world.�

Flexi-Coil signs with Lyndoch Motors

■MACHINERY: Lyndoch Motors’ precision tillage line-up has been strengthened by the partnership with Flexi-Coil.

THE RIVERLAND Caravan Club will be on the hunt for new members at this year’s Riverland Field Days. The club, which formed almost 40 years ago, currently has 15 vans in its membership and is hoping to grow. Riverland Caravan Club president Kaye Parrotta said having a presence at the Field Days is about raising awareness of the group and what it does. “We’ve been thinking that our numbers are dropping

back and whether the people in the Riverland know they have a Riverland Caravan Club in the area,� she said. The club will have three caravans on display at Barmera and Mrs Parrotta said people will be able to stop and enquire about the group. Mrs Parrotta said most people only use their caravan for holidays but if they are a member of the club it can be used every month. “It’s a social thing, use your van and meet nice peo-

ple,� she said. “We were one of the first members to join and we had a caravan and we had young children and you can go away for the weekend and take your families with you and have a good time.� The caravan club organises two safari trips annually with the members already heading to Melrose and Mildura this year. Mrs Parrotta said anyone is welcome to join the club no matter their age.

Ag Art Wear’s creative garments ONE of the most colourful and creative events of the Riverland Field Days, Ag Art Wear, is expected to again be a major drawcard. In previous years crowds have flocked to the sound shell to see models parading the creative designs. There are categories for adults and high school students, with the idea being that they create a garment from items found around the farm or fruit block. Ag Art Wear organiser Julie Plush said the contest is both competitive and fun. “I think it adds some colour and some interest,” she said. “Lots of people like watching all of the creations come on stage. “It just has to be made from horticultural or agricultural items, things you would find around a farm or a fruit block.” While the designers enjoy seeing their creations on stage, the models also have lots of fun.

“They love being involved in it,” Mrs Plush said. “The girls who did the modelling last year had an absolute ball. “There is no limit to the creativity, it is just someone’s imagination.” The winner of the Riverland Field Days event will have the chance for their design to head to the Elmore Field Days, in Victoria, for an opportunity to compete in New Zealand. There will be two Ag Art Wear shows on Wednesday and Thursday at 12 and 2.30pm. To enter the competition, contact Julie Plush on 0438 837 307.

Historic vehicle club returns to the Riverland Field Days

Classic cars Putting you in the fast lane â– STUNNING: Riverland Vintage and Classic Car Club president Joy Mules with her Austin 7 which will be on display at the Field Days.

AFTER an outstanding response at last year’s Riverland Field Days, the Riverland Vintage and Classic Car Club will return. The club, boasting almost 300 members and associates, will be displaying a variety of classic cars during the iconic event with space for 15 vehicles on each day. Amongst the vehicles will be an international truck recently restored at Barmera, a Ford truck from Monash, a restored Volvo and a Ford Ranch Wagon. Club president Joy Mules said the response from the public last year was worthwhile with growing interest

in the group. “The organisers were very pleased and we found of the general public, there seemed to be somebody standing around looking at the cars quite frequently,� she said. “We are hoping to have different cars on the second day. “There will be a mixture of some cars, a couple of utes and a truck on both days.� Mrs Mules said local car owners are proud to display their vehicles during the event which is expected to attract around 16,000 people.

“It’s amazing the huge collection of vehicles that is around,� she said. “I enjoy vehicles and I can say my Austin 7 will be there again on the first day.� The club, which exists to promote the restoration, preservation and enjoyment of motor vehicles with historic interest, continues to grow. “We find that nearly every meeting there are a couple of people interested in becoming members,� Mrs Mules said. “For a country area, I think it probably is one of the largest car clubs that is in South Australia.�

FOR the first time at the Riverland Field Days, those in attendance will have the opportunity to feel the bumps and speed of a real V8 Supercar track. The Ford V8 Supercar Simulator, at site 842, is heading to the Riverland after touring around the nation to give racing fans a taste of life in the fast lane. For $5 per ride, you can experience the adrenalin rush of the track, as surroundsound intesnsifies the simulated g-force rush. You will be given the opportunity to experience

what it is like inside V8 Supercar driver Mark Winterbottom’s impressive race car as he speeds towards the finish line. The simulator can seat up to 10 people and uses sound, movement and visual effects to create a real life experience. The footage used includes V8 tracks such as Bathurst and the Adelaide street circuit as the driver experiences acceleration and braking. Riverland Field Days secretary Tim Grieger said the V8 Supercar Simulator is another unique attraction

at the event. “It’s not actually simulated driving, you just sit there and experience the thrill of the race track,� he said. “You are in there with a big video screen up the front and it is just as if you are sitting in the car, driving on the race track. “The screen gives you the vision and the unit gives you the g-forces of the corners, the humps and the acceleration and breaking. “I had the opportunity to have a go in it at a field day I went to earlier this year and it was very realistic.�

The best in generators at Kulkyne Kampers THIS month marks one year since the release of the Kulkyne 2kVA Inverter Generator onto the Australian market. In this time these generators have been extremely successful with the company frequently selling out of stock. The reason for the success of this product has been the quality of the product, combined with the reliability of a genuine Yamaha MZ80 engine. As well as offering the generator, Kulkyne Kampers can also carry out the final assembly and quality control on this product in their Red Cliffs workshop ensuring that each generator meets its high quality standards. Each unit is also bench tested in Kulkyne Kampers workshop to ensure that when a customer receives their generator that it meets the company’s high quality standards for performance and reliability. One of the standout achievements of this generator over the past 12 months has been the reliability of the inverter with the failure rate running at well under one per cent. In an Inverter Generator, the inverter converts the generators’ output into clean, pure sine wave power so that you can run sensitive equipment such as battery and phone chargers without damage and also start large loads like caravan airconditioners and microwaves. The inverter also controls the throttle on the carburettor, ensuring that the engine only works as

■TOP OF THE RANGE: Kulkyne Kampers’ 2.0kVA inverter generator is a must have when you are on the road or camping. hard as it needs to power the load running from the generator. This ensures maximum fuel economy and also minimal noise levels. In fact the Kulkyne 2kVA Inverter Generator can run up to 15hrs on a tank of fuel, dependant on load. The quality of this generator has not been the only reason for its success. Kulkyne Kampers also back this product up with a three plus two year no stress, no worries

warranty policy, which means customers who own this product can rest assured of full support in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. Kulkyne Kampers is currently in the process of setting up an Australia wire dealer and support network for their generators but in the interim they have a very flexible warranty policy that allows customers to get their generator repaired at a location that is convenient to them and Kulkyne Kampers will pick up

the bill. It is also much easier to talk to the staff at Kulkyne Kampers than at many large companies, as they are a medium size family owned business and their focus is strongly on customer service and ensuring their customers are totally satisfied with their purchase. In the future Kulkyne Kampers also plans to release new models with a 3kVA model currently in research and development.

Kulkyne Kampers will be at site 810 at the Riverland Field Days with their generators on display so that you can come down and hear them running. They will also have their swag range on display and auto fridges which are the most power efficient camping fridge on the Australian market. It’s definitely worth coming down to the Kulkyne Kampers display to say hello to the team at the field day and check out these great value products.

After almost two decades, popular River Murray ambassador returns

Bazza the Bunyip is back

AFTER almost 20 years, Bazza the Bunyip is visiting the region for the Riverland Field Days on Wednesday and Thursday. The River Murray environmental ambassador is returning to help promote awareness on the River Murray ECO Action campaign. River Murray ECO Action project join co-ordinator Dick Olesinski said Bazza is keen to let everyone know how they can do their bit and not only keep enjoying the River Murray but to also care for the environment. KESAB, the Boating Industry Association of South Australia (BIASA) and the State Government have joined forces to introduce an environmental awareness campaign focusing on the issue of wash from vessels on the River Murray. The aim of the River Murray ECO Action campaign is to better manage vessel wash to improve the safety of vessels and people and to reduce environmental harm, such as bank erosion, nuisance to waterway users and damage to property.

The campaign targets the length of the River Murray within SA borders using a staged approach to establish trial 'No Wash' zones. Currently a trial of 'No Wash' signs is in place in areas along the River Murray where wash from vessels can cause damage, injury or annoyance to other vessels, the shoreline or people. The signs are in place at Blanchetown, Mannum and

Murray Bridge. Mr Olesinksi said Bazza is looking forward to his first trip to the region for almost two decades. “It just adds another dimension because he's there on varying levels, one being environmental protection and the second being the river bank erosion issues,� he said. “Bazza is very keen to promote people's enjoyment on

the river but for them to also be aware of what is happening around them. “The Field Days is very much about getting that out there and interacting with the community and making people feel good that Bazza is back.� Maps of the proposed 'No Wash' zones will be on display at the Murray Darling Basin NRM Board site at the Riverland Field Days.

The most comprehensive football previews in the Riverland and Mallee

Redbacks run riot A

DETERMINED Blanchetown Swan Reach rewrote its own history when the club claimed its first premiership in the Riverland Independent Football Leauge on Saturday at Cobdgola. BSR went into the match as outright favourite against Ramco but the Roosters had knocked off the much fancied premiership contenders Paringa in the preliminary final. From the first bounce, the Redbacks took control kicking with what appeared to be a two goal breeze. After a Max Martinson tap on, Chris Giles made the most of his opportunities to soccer through the first major and open the scoring. It was evident early that Ramco would have no answer to the run and carry of Dale Payne and Troy Cowland, despite the pair gaining early touches in defence. Jed Martinson added the Redbacks second goal after shrugging off two tacklers in the goal square and when Dave Waechter put on the after burners with a bounce down the wing resulting in a Ryan Schiller goal, the lead had skipped out to 17 points. While some of Ramco’s stars throughout the season were missing, veteran defender Kym Thiel hit the football hard but the ball quickly rebounded back into defence. A Cowland goal stretched the lead after Scott Young’s courageous attack on the football and it was only until some front and centre roving from Bryce Matthews that Ramco finally kicked a major. The intensity from BSR was evident with big tackles on key play makers Max Baddack and Jamie O’Callaghan and the Roosters were showing signs of frustration giving away a second 50 metre penalty in the first quarter resulting in a goal to Jed Martinson. shell shocked Ramco went into the first break 28 points down and things only got worse in the second term. Simon Mattner goaled after a mark on the lead and when Max Martinson managed to soccer a miraculous left foot

A

goal off the ground from 20 metres out, the floodgates had opened. Josh Waechter goaled from the pocket and the lead stretched out to 44 points late in the second term. The move of Mark Coleman as the lose defender was paying off with Ramco unable to kick over his head and Baddack having to outmark two opponents. s captain Marcus McGrath began to find the football for Ramco, Mark McDonald snuck home a much needed major, however, a free kick and 50 metre penalty gifted Jamie Tanner another goal with the margin at half time being 46 points. he Roosters came out determined to mount a fight back in the third quarter, controlling most of the play in their forward 50 but were unable to kick majors. Baddack opened the term with a strong contested mark and goal before a brilliant individual run from Troy Cowland and resulting goal to Chris Giles turned the momentum back to the Redbacks. Nick Black slotted a tight angled set shot after a brilliant tackle on Dale Payne before Scott Marr was sent off with a yellow card for a heated exchange with Scott Young. oing into the last term facing a 37 point deficit, both teams exchanged majors before Matthews slotted his third to reduce the margin. However, Payne, Cowland and Tanner all stepped up as goals went to Jed Martinson, Scott McKenzie and Chris Giles. Payne’s best on ground performance was topped off with a chasing tackle on Baddack and 50 metre penalty resulting in a goal to the duel Duthie medalist. For the losing team, ruckman Jamie O’Callaghan was superb all day but his midfielders were outclassed. BSR coach Peter Zadow was visibly emotional as the siren sounded to hand his team a 63 point win. “This was three years in the making and we came out on top,” he said.

Waikerie v Berri UNDEFEATED Waikerie will be hoping to be the first B grade team in its history to win three consecutive flags in this weekend’s grand final against Berri. The Demons have had an inspired month of football, causing upset after upset to reach the grand final. Anything could happen. Waikerie is due for a loss and Berri is running hot. However, it is hard to see the Magpies giving up such a strong season with the likes of

■Berri’s Ryan Porter was named Footballer of the Year.

■Waikerie’s Danny Marr won the under 18 count.

Shayne Stevens, Steve Hefford, Michael Beelitz, Steve Liebich, Ben Haynes and Brooke Hoad in the line-up. Berri has been given an injection of youth with Ryan Langcake and Tyson Schrapel holding their own. Rory Correll and Dave Centofanti have been good in the midfield, while Chris Bland has got first hand on the ball and Scott Murphy was good up forward in the preliminary final. This match could be closer than many people think but Waikerie should win its third straight premiership.

RFL GRAND FINAL

PLAYERS TO WATCH THE X-FACTOR Michael Bratton IF Damian Stevens does not play, Bratton’s role because even more important. If he gathers 30 plus possessions, Waikerie are a big chance.

WARHORSE Ben Venning THE important forward is probably not old enough to be described as a ‘warhorse’ but his experience will be invaluable when it comes to this weekend’s grand final

UNDER THE RADAR Aaron Nettelbeck AFTER crossing from Barmera-Monash this season, Nettelbeck has found his own at full back, beating a number of forwards throughout the season. He is often underrated by the opposition and needs to play one final shut down role for the year this weekend.

Underdogs ready to fire LAST year Waikerie went into the Riverland Football League grand final against Loxton North as favourite to win the flag but this time round against BarmeraMonash, it is the Magpies that is the underdog. It is a tag that Waikerie cocoach Craig Griffiths is happy to accept. “When you lose a final it makes you even hungrier and we have raised that (the grand final loss) but it is not a focus at all,” he said. “They deserve to start favourites, they’ve been the form side all year and we’ll go up there as the underdogs. “We’re going to have to play at our very best to beat those blokes because everything has fallen in the right spot for those boys at the moment. “While we are happy to give ourselves a chance in the grand final this week, we are certainly going to be doing everything to get the result and finish the job.” While Griffiths said the team would have preferred a week’s rest by winning the preliminary final, playing in consecutive weeks helped some players. “The boys did what they had to do against Loxton North and that has put us in a good position with a lot of confidence going into a grand final,” he said. “There are always pros and cons from playing in the preliminary final.

and the results will follow from there,” Griffiths said.

Waiting on Stevens and Sutton

■ RISING STAR: Waikerie’s Joseph Haines has had a strong season and could get a major match-up in the final. “There are a few boys who needed a good run and they’ve got it and will be better off for it this weekend.” Griffiths said Barmera-Monash will start favourite but Waikerie has beaten them this season and he is confident it can do the same again. “We certainly were looking forward to having a week off back then and we threw everything at them to win the second semifinal,” he said. “I would say that is certainly an advantage for Barmera now. “Their players have had an opportunity to get over those niggling injuries and rest the legs, it does make a difference.” There is much hype around

the town in the lead-up to the grand final at Renmark, according to Griffiths. “There is a big build-up down here in Waikerie where we enjoy that and to be honest, it’s about pulling the reigns in rather than providing motivation for blokes, they know what it’s about,” he said. Waikerie has an advantage with a number of senior finals campaigners and the likes of Craig Miller, Ben Venning, Tim Bevan, Michael Bratton, Andrew Bachmann, Aaron Nettelbeck and Glen Schreiber ready to give it their best. “To quote Tom Hafey, if every player was to give their best, you can’t ask for more than that

WAIKERIE will play the waiting game for star midfielder Damian Stevens who injured his hamstring against Loxton North. Griffiths said he is hopeful Stevens will not miss his second consecutive grand final. “He is doing everything he possibly can to give himself a chance of playing in a grand final,” he said. “He knows realistically where he is going to be, he is an experienced footballer, he has been around and knows what it takes to get up and play in a grand final. “I’m sure he’ll be honest with himself and the club and come Thursday night, Friday, we will assess him through his fitness, we’ll make a decision at that point. “Until then his name is on the magnet board and we hope he can come up.” Jackson Sutton, who suffered a serious knee injury halfway through the season, has been training and may be available for selection. “We will just have to see how he goes, he’ll have to train flat out this week to declare himself fit,” Griffiths said.

Defender hopes a ďŹ&#x201A;ag win will cap off a...

Memorable season WAIKERIE defender Steven Braun is looking forward to playing on the big stage that is the Riverland Football League grand final. After being selected in the South Australian Country team and playing in the national tournament earlier in the year, Braun can certainly be happy when he reflects on the season. However, adding a premiership to his list of achievements would turn that smile to elation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The feeling is pretty enthusiastic and positive because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got three teams in the grand final,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is going to be a big week, not only for around the footy club but around the community as well and the whole town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually the main street gets decked out and the shops put some streamers and banners up, so it is pretty big for the town.â&#x20AC;? Braun, who is in his second season playing for Waikerie, had never played in a senior grand final before last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shattering loss to Loxton North. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year was probably a bit surreal because I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played in a senior grand final before, so it was probably a

bit nerve wracking,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year it is a bit easier to get into being my second year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will still be nerves but I know what to look forward to.â&#x20AC;? The two teams have met on four occasions this season with Waikerie causing an upset once and Braun is confident the team can do it again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some confidence and definitely we want to erase the memories of last year by celebrating a premiership,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Bratton to claim the double? AFTER being recruited by Waikerie from the Sturt Football Club last year, Bratton took a number of rounds to adjust to the different style of the local game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really struggled to adjust early last year with bigger grounds and a different style of footy but I adapted to it four or five rounds in,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very different but it is a good brand of footy, very open and fast flowing.â&#x20AC;? Since Bratton settled into the midfield at the Magpies he had not looked back, consistently featuring amongst the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best players and catching the eye of the umpires, who provide votes for the Whillas Medal which he won on Monday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is obviously a nice individual honour, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play footy for those awards but it is something you take,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought I was consistent but probably had a few more standout performances this year compared to last year, so maybe that helped in the voting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be great to cap off a good year and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you do all the training for and all the in-season games for to get an opportunity to play in a grand final.â&#x20AC;? Bratton has vowed to continue to play football in the Riverland and said he is proud to have his name alongside teammate Damian Stevens, who won the Whillas Medal in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously a very good honour and reading through some of the names who have won it previously, it definitely means a lot,â&#x20AC;? he said.

RFL GRAND FINAL

PLAYERS TO WATCH THE X-FACTOR Mal Greenwood AFTER joining Barmera-Monash from Freeling mid-season, the experienced midfielder and forward has the ability to blow the game wide open.

WARHORSE Michael Smart IN grand finals you need a player with a level head who can calm the nerves of the youngsters and Smart can do just that. He also provides plenty of drive from the wing.

UNDER THE RADAR Aaron Manning INITIALLY prize recruit Tyler Baldock was tagged with doing the ruckwork. However, Manning has taken on the role and allowed Baldock to push forward. Many teams seem to underestimate Manning’s ability around the ground.

Time to end flag drought ANYONE who follows football in the Riverland knows that it has been 23 years since Barmera-Monash won an A grade premiership. It is certainly something the coaching panel and players cannot hide from and nor do they intend to. As the team runs out onto Renmark Oval to take on Waikerie in the 2012 Riverland Football League grand final, the Roos are just hoping to get the monkey off their back. After finishing minor premier, Barmera-Monash has proven it is ready to make the next step and with a week off after winning the preliminary final, has as good as chance as ever to do it. Barmera-Monash coach Lyndon Burns said the club’s A grade premiership drought has been spoken about often during the season. “We all know the jobs not done yet and the big one is still to go,” he said. “Half the lads I’m coaching weren’t even born 23 years ago but they understand what it means to the footy club and that’s what I’ve drilled into them. “This club needs this and really the town needs it, the supporters need it. “ I k n o w Waikerie were dis-

■ IMPORTANT: Barmera-Monash forward Marc Elliott will use his finals experience this weekend. appointed last year, they’ve got that taste and they want to make a menz for last year but we’ve got 23 years of trying to get that horrible disappointement of not winning one. “The passion around the footy club is definitely there.” The week off will give the players fresh legs and it also means Tyler Baldock has been able to overcome his injury. The selection process is likely to be relatively straight forward with Jake Schwertzferger training hard in a bid to be selected following a serious injury and Callum Buchecker, Kade Boase and Ben Harrington are all in the mix. Burns said while the club respects Waikerie, he said it is time

the Roos added to their own recent history. “We know Waikerie have been the powerhouse over the past two decades, they really have been the side to beat,” he said. “We know it is going to be an armwrestle but if you don’t have respect for the opposition you are not going to go anywhere. “If we can all walk off the ground and look each other in the eye and say we gave it our utmost best, we left nothing out there and we lose, then we are beaten by a better side.” The Roos have a number of players who need to stand up on Saturday and continue what they have been doing all year including Dillon Millard, Michael Smart, Marc and Sam Elliott, Jake

Smith and Murray Middleton to name a few. Either Middleton or Baldock are likely to be forced to play against Steven Braun, while Smart and Bevan should compete on the wing and Dillon Millard may take Ben Venning. Burns said if his young team can get a taste of winning a premiership, he believes there will be much more success in future years. “They are a young bunch of lads and if they get a taste of winning one, I reckon they could possibly win two or three more,” he said. “Forget about the ‘Buff’ Tyrell era, they’ve got their own golden era sitting here waiting for them to go.”

Captain leading from the front AFTER a season ending knee injury sidelined Barmera-Monash captain Matt Leyson for 12 months, there is no doubt the Roos missed their inspiration leader. Upon returning to the team this season, Leyson has filled an important role off half back and regained the confidence he had before the injury. “It took a couple of games to get going,” he said. “I always targeted myself to be playing in round one, to play a couple of games in the B grade just to get the feel of it again and then back into the A grade. “Once I had a couple of games in the A grade it was like I never missed a game. “I got confidence back in my knee pretty quick and I haven’t looked back since and it hasn’t given me any worries at all.” A premiership win would be the fairytale finish to the season for the captain, who has played at Barmera-Monash since the age of nine. “It would be pretty special to be involved in a winning flag,” he said. “It has been 23 years for the club, there has been a lot of patient people out there, so let’s hope we can get the big one on the board for them.” Preparation for the grand final will be somewhat different with Leyson and Nick Kuhn coaching the Roos’ under 15s, which are also in the

it will go a long way to winning the game,” he said. “The midfield is always a pivotal battle, whoever wins that normally comes out on top of the game. “If we can get our running game going, I think we’ll be pretty hard to stop.”

WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Loxton wins flag ■ LOXTON fought back from eight goals down at quarter time to defeat defending champion and 2012 minor premier Renmark 46-42 in a thrilling A1 netball grand final at Renmark Stadium on Friday night. Whilst perhaps not containing the intrigue of the Loxton premiership win against the odds against the same opponent in 2010 under coach Sharona Edwards, this surprise victory was a similar triumph for first year mentor Sally Wright. After all, in the three minor round meetings between the rival clubs in this season’s minor round, Renmark won comfortably on each occasion in consistent domination, 55-36, 51-33 and 55-32. That is 161 goals to 101 overall. Then came that sensational second semi-final result when Renmark got a serious wake-up call when it scraped in with 39 goals to Loxton’s 38. Loxton then had a solid workout in winning the preliminary final against Berri but early in Friday night’s premiership game it appeared in deep trouble as Renmark was obviously intent on there being no repeat of the scare it had received a fortnight earlier. Led by Kerri Turk, the Renmark midfield took com-

plete control, Hannah Foody was strong in defence and with the competition’s best and fairest award winner Anita Modlinski and Lauren Gardner on target around the goals, an eight goal lead at the end of the first quarter put the reigning premier on target for back-to-back titles. But in the second stanza it was almost as if the teams had changed uniforms as Loxton outscored Renmark by 10 goals to lead by two at half time. The Loxton midfielders took over with the attacking play of Jacki Dahlitz, Hollie Bullock and Best on Court award winner Eve Will sensational in setting up opportunities for super accurate goal shooter Alysha Proud and her experienced side kick Lyn Sweeney. Defenders Leah Uren and Amber George also got on top of their opponents. Not to be denied, Renmark inspired by Turk, Foody and Denika Gartery took the honours narrowly in a see-sawing third term and held a one goal advantage at the turn for home but a couple of moves by Wright in the last quarter seemed crucial in the concluding stages as Loxton was able to battle its way clear. Amber George moved to goal attack, while her sister Skye came

Photo: BRAD PERRY off the bench to add height to the defence and with Proud still shooting accurately from any position she found herself in, it was to be Loxton’s title after yet another classic battle between these great rivals. In the A2 grand final, Loxton North also came from behind to grab the title against Renmark 49-43. Loxton North’s Kerri Hutchinson took out the Best on Court award. The junior 17A title went to Berri (Bree Walden BOC) in extra time in another thrilling contest 57-55 against Renmark, while Loxton North (Marlee George BOC) won the 15A division with a 43-39 win over Renmark. Loxton North led the way amongst the clubs with six titles, including three at junior level, as it continues to employ a policy to develop young players for senior ranks. Renmark also won four titles, Berri three and Barmera and Loxton each won a single premiership.

Riverland riders at Australian Motocross champs Gow’s strong form ■ TWO young Riverland riders Loxton’s Tyler Lange and Winkie’s Jack Staunton will compete in the Australian Junior Motocross Championships in Coolum, Queensland, at the end of this month. Tyler will take part in the Junior 250cc class and Jack will compete in the 11-13 years 65cc over nine days of racing. Tyler recently won the junior title in the Peter Stevens SA Motocross series, while

Jack finished high in the state championship placings despite missing a round due to injury. As we have said previously, these young riders and their families are really committed to their sport. It is a matter of ‘have bike will travel’. Last weekend Jack competed in two meetings with the first being at Tea Tree Gully in Adelaide and the next day he was riding in Mildura.

■ IT WOULD be no surprise to see Kingston-On-Murray’s Darran van der Woude add yet another string to his bow and appear in a film along the line of the thriller “The Birds”. Only this one would be called “The Trees” after he was spooked by the shadows in the pine forests at Millicent last weekend and courtesy of some huge tree stumps had his first attempt at the Production 4WD class in the Pines Off Road Enduro ended suddenly. Experienced off road man David Schultz summed it up with “it was carnage, particularly amongst the Riverland Waikerie cars”. Apart from Van der Woude others who were outed with mechanical problems of some kind or other were John Schultz, Lindsay Foster and Carl and Aaron Haby.

Aaron Haby, in fact, only ran into problems late in the event when he was engaging in a tremendous tussle for the lead with eventual outright winners Matt Hanson

and Leigh Wells, who had put a roll over behind them in the Top Ten Shoot Out the previous day. The best performance amongst the Riverland entries came from Geoff and Liz Roe who ended up second in their class and 12th outright

in their Extreme 2WD. Last weekend’s casualties will now see a marked reduction in the number of Riverland-Waikerie cars competing in the Sedan Short Course Enduro this weekend with only James Copeland and Toby Francombe expected to take part. The event will be round five of the SAORRA Multi Club Series with the venue providing a large viewing area from which to watch the action over fast flowing sections, jumps and twists and turns of the track. Cars will also come from Mildura, Adelaide Gawler and Port Augusta for the popular event with scrutineering from 10am to noon on Saturday, followed by racing from 1pm and then cars returning to the track for a 9.30 am start on Sunday.

The Riverland’s very own Hockeyroo ■ From Page 44 ALREADY under the notice of Australian officials, Karri had her first overseas tour to England with a national under 16 team and since then has been to Japan with an Australian A2 side and to India at under 21 level. But her big break came last year when she moved to Perth to take up a junior scholarship with the Australian Institute of Sport. “It was a junior scholarship but I was fortunate enough to be invited to train with the Olympic squad right up to selection for London as part of my AIS involvement,” she said. In Perth, Karri, a defender, is training full time and plays for Jamie Dwyer’s club in the local competition. She is also studying at University. During my chat with Kar-

ri on Monday night it did not take long for her to shift attention to the fact that back here at home she has two young sisters, Merinda who is now playing in Adelaide, and Kira, playing for Berri, who are also showing promise in the sport. Talking to leading local hockey identity Brett Stokes who has seen Karri rise through the ranks including her time at Berri he said “I think it is amazing that despite her heavy involvement at the AIS and with state and Australian sides Karri still found time to not only play but to coach Berri players when she was home from Western Australia recently”. “She has never forgotten where home is,” he said. The Women’s Champions Challenge will be held in Dublin from September 29 to October 7. Hockeyroos Coach Adam Commens is taking

the event so seriously that he has selected 12 of the 16 players from London for the tournament. The only other South Australian in the squad for Dublin is Bianca Greenshields who entered the AIS in Western Australia around the same time as Karri. Karri’s father Gavin said the talented player has worked hard to get where she is today. “We are ecstatic and excited for her,” he said. “To become an elite athlete it is a really long road and unless you’ve done it, I don’t think people realise the sacrifices that the kids have to make to get there. “She is very passionate about hockey and she has made a lot those sacrifices. “I’ve watched here through a lot of junior tournaments and I always believed that she had the potential to go further.”

All on the line in grand finals ■ THE TOP two teams from the A grade competitions will contest the Hockey grand finals at Glassey Park on Saturday. Mind you, making it to the premiership game of the men’s grade was no walk in the park for minor premier Waikerie as it took until the last 10 minutes of its preliminary final clash against Renmark for it to finally gain control in a high scoring, quality contest and go on to win 7-5. Rowan Hope was the match winner for Waikerie with five goals, while other players who were prominent included Brenton Kroehn and Jason Redemski. As Renmark filed away some marked improvement for use in 2013, players in Shaun Crouch, Matt Mallinson and Andrew Coombs were in good form. Waikerie now rekindles its battle

with defending champion Loxton for the title remembering that in the second semi-final between the two teams, Loxton won 3-1 in something of an upset considering late minor round form. Loxton will now be looking to Sean Burgess, Karl Hennig, Aaron Evans and Zac and Daniel Schubert to continue the form that gave it direct entry into this week’s game to defeat the star studded Waikerie combination and give it back-to-back titles. “I think Waikerie this year have had the wood on us a little bit,” Loxton caretaker coach Karl Hennig said. “It’s going to be a lot closer than you think.” Hennig said the team is likely to lose three or four players next year, so to win back-to-back titles would mean a lot to the older players. “We will be looking at rebuilding

next year, so this could be our last real shot for some years,” Hennig said. In the women’s preliminary final Renmark looked to be peaking nicely in gaining another shot at rival Loxton for the premiership by defeating Waikerie 3-0. Tegan Moldovan, Juliet Mallinson, Jamie Butters and Laura Strout were outstanding in a very even Renmark combination, while as Waikerie finished 2012, Zoe Liebich and Kristen Pick completed tremendous individual seasons. Meanwhile, Loxton would have spent some time plotting another premiership victory and with Billie Jo Hammerstein, Steph Baird, Trish Gillard, Louise Smith, Eloise Hampel and Gillian Bartsch on board, it certainly has the team to do so. But this is another Loxton versus Renmark contest – it will be close.

■ Loxton’s Sean Burgess will be an important player in the grand final.

River Rangers complete the double with Top Four Cup ■ BERRI River Rangers completed the premiership and Top Four Cup double with a resounding 9-1 victory in the cup final at the Steve Poutakidis Sports Field in Renmark on Sunday. Chris Miller, with two goals, was one of six Ranger players to score in the game, while Marcus Drogemuller was named Best on Field and Adam Vallelonga also ranked high. For Barmera, Josh Tsorotiotis and Nathan Hamood were its best players on the day. In the women’s A grade, Renmark also won both titles taking out the Top Four Cup final with a 2-1 victory over Loxton on the back of outstanding performances from Penny Eleftheriadis and Renee van der Hoek. Loxton’s best players were Haylee Symens and Amanda Altschwager. Other Cup winners were Renmark (Eric Sialis, Peter Athanasiou) 1-0 over Barmera (Greg Perry, Lockie Morrison) in the B grade, Renmark (Ethan Cinc, Ben Pilgrim) against Berri (D Eleftheriadis, B Saunders) 3-1 in the under 16 competition and in the under 14s, Barmera Number One (S Giahgias, C Oliver) defeated Renmark Number One (E Sialis, K Head) 2-1. Berri Number Two (Evan Gregoric, Foti Pipinis) also completed a title double by defeating keen rival Barmera Number One (Blake Koskinos, Matt Nobile) 3-1 in the under 12 final. Many of the players involved in Sunday’s finals also featured in last Friday night’s announcements at the association’s annual presentation function at the Renmark Greek Hall where 300 people attended.

There was a tie for the Women’s Best and Fairest award between Elif Sen (Renmark) and Marnie Stewart (Berri), while the B grade trophy went to Barmera’s Jack Schell, under 16s was won by Yianni Tragos (Renmark), under 14s by Adam Drogemuller (Berri) and under 12 best and fairest was won by Evan Gregoric (Berri Number Two). The highest goal scorers were Chris Miller (Berri) in A grade, Sen in the women’s competition, Ian Van Der Biezen (Barmera) in the B grade, Tragos in under 16s, Mitchell Thomas (Renmark Number One) in under 14s and Gregoric in the under 12s.

Hennig wins top award ■ LOXTON stalwart Karl Hennig capped off a stellar season by winning the Riverland men’s hockey A grade best and fairest award on Saturday night. The move from striker to attacking full back was one of the main influences for Hennig’s consistency. Hennig finished on 30 votes, two ahead of Waikerie’s Jason Redemski on 28, Loxton young gun Sean Burgess on 21 and Berri’s Tony Halupka on 21. “I was really surprised, I didn’t expect it,” he said. “A few of the local boys said I played out of my skin in the last few rounds. “It’s an honour to win the best and fairest because it’s a high honour for our association.” Berri’s Tony Herbert won the B grade Best and Fairest with 26 votes, finishing ahead of Loxton’s Nathan Fielke on 25, while Helen Fielke was the winner of the B grade Women’s Best and Fairest, edging out Loxton’s Jane Reid by four votes. For what is believed to be the 10th time, Loxton’s Billie-Jo Hammerstein was awarded the women’s A grade top honour. Polling votes in almost every match, Hammerstein finished on 61 votes, ahead of Renmark’s Danielle Weeks on 35 and Waikerie’s Kristin Pick with 27. Hammerstein described her team’s season as having its “ups and downs” but said she was very thankful for the best and fairest award. “It’s still always good to know you are still up there competing against the others,” she said. The playing coach will now turn her attention to this weekend’s grand final. In the junior grades, Renmark’s Aden Shaw (under 18 men), Waikerie’s Ashleigh Baker (under 16 women), Berri’s Dylan Couzner (under 15 men) and Waikerie’s James Smith (under 12 mixed) were all rewarded with best and fairest honours at the Riverland Hockey Association presentation in Berri on Saturday night. On the night, Berri veteran Rae Trimper was also recognised for her efforts during the season.

Karpany and Ingerson favourites for Dog Tag Award, while president announces his retirement ■ THE Riverland Superdogs will hold their annual presentation dinner at the Lyrup Club tomorrow night with a lot of interest surrounding voting for the 2012 Best and Fairest player Dog Tag Award. The Superdogs finished the Australian Masters season on Sunday with one of their strongest teams but one of their most disappointing results for 2012. Even though the Riverland boys recruited former Port Adelaide player Corey Ah-Chee for the game, the team went down 15.14 (104) to 7.8 (50) against a Rosewater side that was simply too fast, skilled, polished and too good for an opponent that left its best form on the bus. Mind you, that form was not

all that good either as despite perfect conditions Darren Tieste and Rick Frahn failed to break a long standing record. Tieste may have indeed injured himself in that attempt as he joined Paul Arnold, Warren Winship and Peter Aston on a long casualty list. There are reports that the team was, in fact, segregated on the bus for the trip home after the forwards had malfunctioned throughout the match to spoil the good work of the defenders. Only Ken Karpany, with four goals, Shaun Harris, first gamer Brad Gillespie, Sam Ingerson, Brenton Fenwick, Ah-Chee and Frahn would have gained any late votes for the Dog Tag count.

Another thought on the poor performance by the Dogs was that they wanted to ‘help Rosewater celebrate the opening of its new clubrooms by handing it an easy win’. But even if that was so, it may not have been appreciated by many from the host club which certainly appears to take this veterans competition very seriously indeed. But the Superdogs culture is different and they build a lot of fun and enjoyment into their season. No doubt that will show through again tomorrow night when they aim to upstage the Brownlow Medal presentation with football’s night of nights, their Dog Tag dinner.

Main chances for the prestigious award would seem to be Karpany, Ingerson, Shane Healy, Frahn and Harris, with the dark horse being Tieste. But the night will also unfortunately have a touch of sadness with president Lance Gum announcing his retirement after a 10-year stint. Perhaps the Superdogs recent signing Matthew ‘Doc’ Clifford tells it best “The amount of work the pres has done for the club is unbelievable,” Doc said. “I have really enjoyed becoming a Superdog. “There is of course a lot of fun and laughs but Lance has kept the lid on it so that there is a responsible approach to things as well. “His shoes will be hard to fill”.

Berri junior selected in senior Australian squad

KARRI’S A HOCKEYROO By GRAHAM CHARLTON

FORMER Berri junior Karri McMahon has been chosen in the Hockeyroos squad that will leave for Dublin in Ireland next week to play in the Champion Challenge tournament. From her base in Western Australia, Kerri told the Riverland Weekly on Monday that she was

excited to be selected. “This competition is a lead up to next year’s Champions Trophy involving the eight top nations of the world, so it is a chance for me to gain selection for that as well,” she said. The event in Ireland will indeed be a real challenge for the Australian team after it finished fifth at the London Olympics.

The host country and tenth ranked South Africa will be amongst countries looking to make the top eight, so a berth in the Champions Trophy tournament in 2014 is not guaranteed. Karri, 20, started playing hockey as a six-year-old in Queensland and after her family moved to Berri, she played through the ranks at her home

club and gained her first selection for a South Australian hockey representative team at 13 years of age. From there she moved through the South Australian age group teams and on relocating to Adelaide joined the Adelaide Hockey Club. ■ Continued Page 43
