Ocean Grove children’s centre information session keeps parents in the loop

PARENTS SCHOOLED BY TIFFANY PILCHER

OCEAN Grove parents were given a preview of services to be offered at the new Ocean Grove Integrated Children’s Centre during the first public information

session last week. The session was held by the City of Greater Geelong (COGG) at Surfside Primary School on Wednesday night to provide parents with information regarding enrolments and the various

care and education services the centre would offer. Beangala ward councillor Jan Farrell said a number of families came to the meeting to discuss their options and find out how the children’s centre would

benefit the Ocean Grove community. “We had 21 participants at the information session, mostly families who use local child care services. “We know that local families are keen to access a facility that provides an integrated suite of early childhood and family support services.” Geelong builder Lyons Construction is on schedule to complete the $9.5 million Shell Road centre in December this year, and Cr Farrell said the centre will be fully functional early next year. “Council will fit out the building during December 2013 and January 2014. “We’ll be ready to open for business for the first day of term in January 2014,” she said. The centre is being built with a mix of federal, state and local government funding, with COGG being the major contributor. COGG has provided $8.5 million and the state government has contributed

$1 million. It will be the first new major facility of its type in the Greater Geelong region, and is set to be a hub for early childhood development and education. It will include a kindergarten, early childhood intervention services, long day care and two preschool rooms, seven child care play rooms, and an occasional care room – each with associated playgrounds. There will also be two maternal and child health consulting rooms, a general consulting room and a multipurpose room. As well as the introduction of new services, a number of community services will be relocated to the new hub. The toy library and immunisation sessions provided by Barwon Health will both be moved to the centre and existing play groups may also potentially be moved to the new space. More information evenings will be organised in the months leading up to the centre’s opening.

BARWON COAST UPDATE BARWON Coast is your local coastal foreshore manager, and has the responsibility for the management of 13 kilometres of coastal Crown land from Collendina to Blue Rocks including our beautiful beaches in Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads and 13th Beach. We are also the manager of the Port of Barwon Heads and operate two large coastal caravan parks – Barwon Heads Caravan Park and the Riverview Family Caravan Park, Ocean Grove plus the Riverside Camping area. Our committee members are local residents from Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads and are appointed by the state government following the public advertising for expressions of interest. CHANGE IN COMMITTEE MEMBERS Our committee members are appointed for a three year term and three members’ terms expire on June 30. Two of our current members have not applied for re-appointment noting that long serving member Tim Goddard has recently moved away to Broome. Our committee chair Mark Edmonds was re-appointed by the minister as chair for a further three years and three new members were appointed – Kerry Petty from Ocean Grove, Sandra Gatehouse from Barwon Heads and Tony Overman from Moriac. New members will attend their first committee meeting on July 16 at 7.30pm at the Barwon Coast office. BUDGETS FOR 2013/14 The committee has approved a range camping and accommodation unit tariffs for 2013/14 that will generate approximately $4.9 million

revenue – an increase of approximately four per cent on last year. The caravan park and camping operations will provide an operating surplus of $2.7 million that will fund our coastal operations ($1.1 million), administration, plant and vehicle operations, education, natural resource protection plus the funding for capital works. Additional financial resources will be made available for our coastal environment role following upon a major study of existing flora along the coast that has identified areas of major weed infestation and areas of pristine vegetation. MAJOR PROJECTS We are working on a number of new projects including: • Upgrade of fire fighting services in our caravan parks to meet new standards. A two year project costing in excess of $250,000 • Upgrade of the toilet block off Flinders Parade at the Playground. This work will be undertaken at the same time as the playground upgrade all of which will hopefully be finished by November at a cost in excess of $300,000 • Review of all infrastructure services in the Riverside Camping Ground. The camping ground is only used six weeks each year but is extremely popular. The services to the area are in need of upgrading and investigation into water, electricity and wastewater services are underway. Upgrades/replacement of amenity blocks are also being investigated.

control of pest plants and pest animals. One of the major weed infestations in the coastal reserves/dunes is bridal creeper. Bridal creeper is a serious environmental weed and has been declared one of the 20 Weeds of national significance. Like many other weeds it was introduced into Australia from South Africa during the 1870s as an ornamental garden plant and became popular for use in bridal bouquets, giving rise to its common name. Bridal creeper is a highly invasive environmental weed and unlike most environmental weeds can establish in undisturbed native vegetation. The climbing stems of bridal creeper form a dense canopy which smothers other vegetation, and destroys understorey plants. Easily recognisable, bridal creeper has sharply pointed and glossy green leaves with small and greenish white flowers and red sticky berries.

Queenscliff goes green BY TIFFANY PILCHER AN ESTIMATED 8,400 kilograms of electronic items were collected during Queenscliffe council’s e-waste drop-off day last month. A total of 236 cars, one wheelbarrow, three bikes and one pedestrian were recorded passing through the temporary drop-off facility at Ocean View car park in Queenscliff. Televisions and computers accounted for approximately 6,000 kilograms of waste to be recycled and smaller items such as kitchen appliances, mobile phones, and radios accounted for 2,400 kilograms. Borough of Queenscliffe mayor Helene

Cameron said she was pleased with the public support for the event. “The collection service was provided free to all residents so it’s great that so many people took advantage of it.� Queenscliffe council, conservation volunteers, schools and community groups have also removed more than 20 tonnes of weedy vegetation from the Point Lonsdale foreshore area opposite the cemetery since January. This area is recognised as an important Coastal Moonah Woodland site and the combined efforts have recently been recognised with a coastal land management award. Cr Cameron applauded this proactive

partnership and the shared approach to weed management. “Weed management is critical in protecting and enhancing our foreshore areas,� she said. “Given the borough community’s vested interest in our natural environment, this partnership approach is creating outstanding results. “I thank those individuals and organisations who are already working with council on these projects and I encourage others to get involved.� Over 8,000 kilograms of electrical items were collected for recycling during Queenscliffe’s e-waste drop off day last month.

Beggs the new flotilla commander

Outgoing commander Gary Tomlins (left) congratulates Ted Beggs (right) on his election as commander.

THE Queenscliff Australian Volunteer Coast Guard flotilla has a new commander following an election last week. Ted Beggs, an eight year resident of Queenscliff, succeeds Gary Tomlins who steps down following two successive terms as commander. “I am extremely proud of the work done by our volunteer crews,� Mr Beggs said when accepting his post. “Our priority over the next two years will be to replace our ageing boat and continue to expand membership.� Queenscliff flotilla is in preliminary discussions with squadron headquarters and the state government to replace their 12-year-old boat with a larger more modern craft to improve emergency response both

inside and outside Port Phillip Bay. Mr Beggs has served in the flotilla for eight years, four as deputy commander as well as the mammoth task of overseeing the rebuilding of the headquarters following a disastrous fire four years ago. Membership at the flotilla has doubled in the past two years bringing new and old skills to the group. “An active membership is key to any volunteer group. We train monthly and have a duty roster to ensure an effective response 24/7.� New members and visitors are always welcome at the flotilla headquarters located opposite the boat ramp at Queenscliff. The headquarters is occupied Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

Portarlington’s afternoon tea raises record amount for Cancer Council BY ALI DEANE

THANKS to the generous contributions of volunteers, sponsors and organisers, last month’s Portarlington Biggest Afternoon Tea and Mad Hatter’s Tea Party were bigger than ever, raising an impressive $18,300 for those affected by cancer. Last year, $13,200 was raised but this year the event at Parks Hall, Portarlington was sold out ahead of time and by all reports it was a fantastic day. Barbara Fernandez of the Cancer Council of Victoria visited Portarlington last week to accept the cheque from the Portarlington Community Association at the Neighbourhood House and also

present the group with flowers and a thank you gift. Ms Fernandez was over the moon according to coordinator Gemma Tobschall of the Portarlington Community Association. “She was so thrilled by it all, and gave us many compliments, as we had raised an extra $5,000 on last year. “It was great attendance, and we were very lucky, the place was set up beautifully. “There was the Mad Hatter’s beanie and toy exhibition, we had Saint Ignatius College perform once again which was terrific, we had beautiful food thanks to the Neighbourhood House volunteers, and many kind donations. “It really was the combination

of the two events, and absolutely nothing would have happened without our fantastic volunteers, and the Portarlington community were very generous. “It was a really combined effort, and big or little every contribution made it all happen, and made it the wonderful event that it was.� Ms Tobschall and Madge Pinge coordinated the Biggest Afternoon Tea, with help from Cheryl Hilton and Barbara Wilson-Browne who were

behind the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Throughout May and June, events were held across the region to get people together over a cuppa, and help fight cancer. Morning teas were held at workplaces, sporting clubs, and tea was shared with friends. It was the 20th year, and money raised helps to pay for registered nurses with oncology qualifications and experience to give information and support to people facing cancer.

DE, DE, design award

BY TIFFANY PILCHER

BY HAMISH BROOKS OCEAN Grove architect DE atelier continues to build on its good work with a house the company designed winning a sustainability award and being featured on a pay TV show. DE atelier principal Briony Darcy was thrilled with the recognition from the City of Whitehorse that awarded the Surrey Hills house they designed a built environment award. This recognition drew the attention of the producers of Foxtel show Australia’s Best Houses, with the house, the owners and the architects featured on it last week. “We were approached by (the host of the show) Gary Takle through the house profile they’d picked up online and approached the clients and we went from there.� “As a profession and business, sustainability is at the forefront in considerations in all design work we do. It’s inherent in our approach to what we do. “There are a lot of passive sustainable design features we try to include in all jobs, but these clients (for the Surrey Hills home) were prepared to go for active features as well.� Ms Darcy said the company, which relocated to Ocean Grove from Melbourne six years ago, still picked up 50 per cent of their work in Melbourne. “This house was on a 300 square metre lot which was part of the design challenge. We had

to make the most of a small house for it to feel spacious.� Ms Darcy said DE atelier was looking forward to being part of Sustainable House Day and were likely to have an Ocean Grove house they had renovated for people to inspect on the day. “The house we’re thinking of is a fairly major

turnaround – a 1960s pole house which has been retrofitted with modern sustainable elements.� The Australia’s Best Houses feature can be viewed at vimeo.com/68264992. Visit sustainablehouseday.com to find out more about Sustainable House Day on Sunday September 8.

SURFSIDE Waves Soccer Club are expecting to have private temporary change rooms at Shell Road Reserve as early as late July after a positive meeting with the City of Greater Geelong last week. Club officials met with council members to iron out details regarding approvals and building permits to have their recently purchased portable facility delivered to Shell Road Reserve as soon as possible. Club secretary Gill Black said they are expecting to obtain approval for the building at the beginning of July and the permit should be available by the end of July. “We’re looking at it positively, the day we have both the approval and the permit we will get the building here. “We have already made the purchase and were hoping to get them on site immediately so in some ways it’s a little frustrating but there are certain procedures we need to follow. “We knew we’d have to take these steps and council understands the predicament we’re in and why we need them so badly – the facilities as they are now can’t truly be shared by all players.� Ms Black said the club appreciated the assistance from the netball club by allowing them to use their change facilities in the meantime. “Currently the netball club has more ownership over the shared change rooms and they’ve been great in letting us use them but we really do need our own for both male and female use. “The building we have purchased is one large room and we will partition it so it can be used by males and females at the same time.�

news Pupils’ landscapes among best in state 06

BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE work of promising Ocean Grove Primary School student artists will be exhibited at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne on Sunday. The exhibition, Local Landscapes, is part of a visual art and literacy enrichment program for grade 5 and 6 students who have demonstrated interest, imagination and skill in the visual arts. There are 21 grade six students from Ocean Grove Primary School who have been selected to take part in the program and visual arts teacher Robyn Jones said their work was the best she had seen her students produce. “The standard of the work for this exhibition is exceptional and it’s getting

better every year. “Each student has been required to take a photo of a landscape that’s important to them then paint from that photograph. “There are so many iconic landscapes in Australia and therefore we are seeing a wide range, they are creating beach scenes, snow scenes, country scenes, one is even of a single solitary tree and they’re all very impressive.” The students have been studying iconic Australian landscape artists extensively to prepare for the exhibition and have prepared text to accompany their work as a personal reflection about what has inspired them. Each participating student will be presented a special certificate in a ceremony at the gallery during the exhibition on Sunday.

Brick brilliance goes on show BY JAMES TAYLOR

Ocean Grove Primary School students (L-R) Georgia Asquith, Olivia Bardsley who is also holding a painting by Jacqui Greer, Sophie Collins and Rohan Crawley with their artwork, which will be displayed at the National Gallery of Victoria on Sunday.

PLASTIC bricks took centre stage in Point Lonsdale over the weekend at a celebration of all things Lego. More than 2,000 people visited the Queenscliffe Bricks exhibition at the Point Lonsdale Primary School hall on Saturday and Sunday, put together by the Rotary Club of Queenscliff and the Melbourne Lego Users Group (MUGS). This year’s event showcased Lego creations and models made by MUGS members, which ranged from houses, churches, castles, cityscapes and a re-creation of

Nicholson Street in Carlton to World War II aircraft, trucks, dinosaurs and a huge model of Disney character Tigger. Fay Reinbach from the Rotary Club of Queenscliff said the exhibit that drew the most interest was a train display that ran the length of the hall. “We wanted everything to be different to last year; we want to keep it fresh.” She said the exact attendance was still being calculated, but the 2013 event would certainly be lower than last year. “We ran a limited number of

Making a big impact on the Bellarine Sustainable gardening, fruit tree planting, waste wise workshops and bike maintenance classes are just some of the activities Bellarine locals can enjoy over the next few months as part of the Alcoa and Greening Australia ‘Make an Impact’ program.

The program aims to build community resilience to climate change through ‘fostering skills, imagination and the capacity of local people to take control and find answers to the issues relevant to them around sustainability and climate change’.

says that the program’s theme, ‘experiments in local living’, provides Bellarine residents with positive actions they can undertake that will benefit the local community, their individual health and well being, the environment and their hip pockets.

Greening Australia’s Lyn Willcock

“The Make an Impact events are designed to be fun and engaging, encouraging people to think outside the box regarding sustainability.”

“Point Lonsdale is the third local community to host Make An Impact, after successful programs in the Anglesea and Whittington communities. The program shows that collective small actions and movements in communities, such as ours in the Bellarine, can have a lasting impact. Anyone can start something, the key is you’ve just got to start!”

Free regular sessions and workshops will be held throughout July, August and September in Point Lonsdale.

sessions because we didn’t want it to be too crowded. “That worked well, as it gave the exhibitors a chance to talk to the public and for the children to get right up close to the displays.” Some MUGS exhibitors also built models over the course of the weekend, including a large replica of the Taj Mahal. Ms Reinbach said the Rotary Club would likely run Queenscliffe Bricks again next year. “We were very pleased, we got extremely good feedback talking to people when they left. ‘Awesome’ was a word that we heard a lot.”

Council urged to take the plunge on pool BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Surf Coast Aquatic Leisure Centre Action Group (SCALCAG) has laid down the gauntlet to Surf Coast Shire councillors, saying the community expects a pool will be built in Torquay during this term of office. The final 2013-14 budget will be adopted tonight, and the community group has called for $40,000 to be included so working drawings of the aquatic centre can be drawn up.

Dick Danckert spoke on behalf of SCALCAG at last week’s public hearing of submissions to the council’s draft budget and council plan. He said there had been three feasibility studies run by the council into building a pool, as well as many other community surveys. “In every one, the community has been found to be overwhelmingly in support. “We’re at the point that the community expects it will be this council that will act.” The council earmarked space for the aquatic centre

in the community and civic precinct last year, and the draft budget already includes a commitment to review a 2009 feasibility study. Mr Danckert said the 2009 study had several deficiencies, including underestimating admission charges by 20 per cent, excluding use by holidaymakers and other groups such as sporting clubs, and underestimating population growth. The pool is expected to cost tens of millions of dollars to build and will most likely need state and federal funding support, but Mr Danckert said the

centre could ultimately be profitable for the council. “If the 2009 study deficiencies are addressed, the cost will be at least neutral.” He said the $40,000 figure was an estimate of how much it would cost to create working drawings. SCALCAG’s submissions to the draft budget and council plan also calls for the establishment of a working party to determine the needs of the facility, whether the land is adequate, to explore any possible partnerships, and to compile their work in a timely fashion to meet state and federal funding cycles.

DESIGN work will shortly begin on the new Aireys Inlet skate park after recent confirmation Sport and Recreation Victoria would match Surf Coast Shire Council’s contribution of $60,000 to the project. In addition to this $120,000, local businesses and the community have donated $24,000 with the Anglesea Lions Club contributing $5,000. The design process will start during July with community involvement. The park will include a new larger bowl, new grind rails, ramps, an upgraded fun box and benches for skaters of all ages. Surf Coast mayor Libby Coker said the skate park was an important addition to Aireys Inlet’s recreational infrastructure. “The way the community has got around this project has been really impressive and we look forward to bringing it to fruition. The current skate park has been well-used but we know it needs an upgrade to ensure it meets the community’s needs,” Cr Coker said. “I congratulate local businesses, the Aireys Inlet P-12 school and community members, in particular Kendra Harding and Dale Frank, who have worked tirelessly with council to get this project happening.” Cr Coker said local young people and skaters would have the opportunity to have input into the design of the park, with details of this process to be confirmed shortly.

Club build on track for summer BY HAMISH BROOKS THE rebuild of the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club is on target to finish by December, according to the club’s building committee chairperson. Matthew Chun said following a few months delay over summer when works were paused due to an asbestos discovery, everything has gone to plan since, with the clubhouse likely to be finished in December. The discovery of unaccounted for asbestos on the site in October last year stopped construction. The club was paying $4,300 a week to the builder to keep construction huts and fencing on the site. At the time they sought and received additional government funding to have the asbestos removed, and work resumed in earnest in February. “It’s going well. We keep praying that it doesn’t rain much, because that holds it up. The big event was when we laid the slab on the weekend before the long weekend. All the piling has been done. A big amount of work has been undertaken.” The slab visible at the site at the moment will form the clubhouse basement, which is twice the size of the old basement. “The next step is the slab for the ground floor.” The new club house will have roughly the same footprint as the old one but will be a modern facility with a commercial kitchen with the bar in a different spot. “The bar will be roughly the same size but will have a better orientation.” Mr Chun thanked all the stakeholders in the land where the club is located. He thanked the Surf Coast Shire, state government and the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee and said the $4 million redevelopment wouldn’t have been able to go ahead without their hard work and cooperation. “We need to thank everyone at every turn because everyone has worked very hard on this project.”

Willma Taylor still has a mean forehand at 95 years old. She took to the court at Spring Creek on Friday, the day after her birthday.

Willma’s still a hit at 95 BY TIFFANY PILCHER TORQUAY tennis enthusiast Willma Taylor proved age is only a number last week, having a hit with her social tennis team the day after her 95th birthday. Willma said she started playing the day her father brought home a tennis racquet when she was 10 and 85 years later she is still playing every week. “My father bringing home that racquet is to this day the best thing anyone has ever done for me, I just picked it up and haven’t stopped – I have always loved having a hit. I used to play a lot when I was a young girl, I am not as quick as I used to be but I still like to have a go.” Willma’s teammates, who play with her every Friday, said she still has all the shots and can’t see her stopping any time soon. The group enjoyed birthday cake and celebrations in the clubrooms after the friendly match.

Pest photography fires up again BY JAMES TAYLOR

Guest speaker and Y Chef Challenge sponsor Alan Gribble of Adroit Insurance Group with St Igantius VET hospitality students Joseph Frese and Alysha Kitchingman, and chef Daniel Brehaut who whipped up his Chicken Saltimbocca at the challenge launch on Wednesday.

Challenge fires up for student chefs BY TIFFANY PILCHER ST IGNATIUS College’s budding chefs are getting a taste of the hospitality industry as they work with celebrated chef Daniel Brehaut to battle it out in an interschool cooking challenge. VET hospitality students from the four participating schools will work with mentors from leading local restaurants weekly and put forward two representatives for the Y Chef Challenge in August.

The competition was launched on Wednesday with Mr Brehaut from Black Bull Tapas Bar and Restaurant and other participating chefs from Jack and Jill Restaurant, Empire Grill and the Telegraph Hotel holding an introductory demonstration for the students. St Ignatius head of food technology Kristin Williamson said the challenge and classes with multi-award winning chef Mr Brehaut will give the students a head start in the hospitality industry. “It’s a great experience for them as they are

exposed to a professional chef, a commercial kitchen and a high pressure environment. The final challenge will be held on Friday 23 August at Northern Bay College, where competitors will prepare a specified menu to for an independent judging panel made of up of renowned food writers and other industry experts. The winners will take away the perpetual trophy, prizes donated by Myer and spend a day shadowing award winning chef, Matt Dempsey at his Inverleigh restaurant, Gladioli.

A PHOTOGRAPHY competition that puts Australia’s pest animals in the spotlight is on again. Interest in the annual prize by the Invasive Animals CRC has grown over the past two years, and national resource management facilitator Jessica Marsh hopes it will remind landholders, environmental staff, volunteers and members of the public about the widespread presence of pest animals and the damage they cause. “Our Feral Photos competition has been quite successful at raising community awareness about pest animals. “Images from past competitions have been highly sought after for major publications and promotional material, as they help illustrate the environmental, agricultural and social damage that pest animals cause across the country. “The Invasive Animals CRC also gives hope to communities who are dealing with these issues, as we are researching new and innovative ways to manage and control pest animals.” She said pest animals generally made the battle of landholders trying to make a living much tougher than it needed to be. “Just imagine the trauma people experience when wild dogs destroy years of breeding efforts when sheep and lambs are killed, or when valuable crops and native vegetation are destroyed by mice, feral pigs or rabbits.” She said she hoped the competition encouraged people to get out there and see what was happening in their environment, and to get creative about how they could capture photographic evidence of pest animals and the damage they caused. Photographs can be submitted online via the Invasive Animals CRC website, and must be of a vertebrate pest animal or the impacts caused by pests in Australia. Entries must be the work of the person entering, and photographs taken by a remote camera are acceptable. There is a limit of five entries per person. The competition closes on September 30.

Learn your timetable at Jan Juc BY TIFFANY PILCHER AFTER widely surveying parents in the community, the Jan Juc Preschool timetable for 2014 is now available and better suited to local families than ever. Some changes have been made according to the feedback from the survey and they’re thrilled to now be offering a tailored service to the community. Places are available in the 3 to 5 year old program, each session is three hours long and there is an opportunity to join in two sessions a week. A three and four day program for 4 to 6 year olds has been specifically organised after the survey showed this was a high priority for families. The preschool will also have a brand new room for 2014 and the outdoor play area is being upgraded with lots of new things for children to discover. The children’s development is central to both the parents committee and teaching staff who work closely

and positively together to operate the preschool. Parents committee president Rachelle Garrard said the school is proud to offer children a unique learning experience. “We have dedicated teaching staff who are committed to the development of each individual child and they include and interact with parents on a daily basis. “We have a play based approach to learning which fosters development in a very positive way and our natural outdoor play space is our biggest asset – it’s huge, the kids love having so much space to play.” Parents are invited to make a time to visit and meet the teaching staff by calling 5261 2643.

One scheme. One focus on individuals. One commitment to lifelong support. From 1 July, Australia’s current support system for people living with disability is being progressively replaced with DisabilityCare Australia. This new scheme will help provide a better quality of life for Australians with a significant and permanent disability, and for their families and carers too.

What’s new about DisabilityCare Australia? DisabilityCare Australia is a new way of funding personalised support for people with disability. As well as looking at a person’s immediate needs, it will take a lifelong approach and enable people with disability to have choice and control over their supports. It will focus on early intervention, recognising that timely support can minimise the impact of a disability on individuals, families and carers. Assistance will be provided at the right time, rather than only once people reach crisis.

Who is eligible? DisabilityCare Australia will help people who have a significant and permanent disability and who need assistance with everyday activities. This includes people whose disabilities are attributed to intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory, or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.

Will I lose my current support? No. Your current arrangements will stay in place until you have met DisabilityCare Australia to discuss your needs.

Will it affect my Disability Support Pension? No. Your Disability Support Pension will not be affected.

When does it all begin? DisabilityCare Australia is being rolled out in stages because it is a big change to the current system.

BY JAMES TAYLOR BARWON Water has been given the go-ahead to bring down water prices for customers over the next five years. Last week, the Essential Services Commission (ESC) approved the 7.6 per cent decrease (excluding CPI) over the life of the five year water plan. For the average Barwon Water residential customer, who uses 153 kilolitres annually, their bill will fall by $82 from $1,049 this financial year to $967 by 201718. Once inflation of 2.5 per cent is factored in for the coming new financial year, residential and business bills will increase 0.9 per cent. The water corporation’s submission to the ESC in October also proposed more than halving the amount it spent on capital works. Barwon Water chairman Michael King said the corporation had been conscious of cost-of-living pressures on the community while it was developing the water plan. “We were committed to providing relief from the double digit price rises of the past five years that were necessary to deliver water security to the Geelong region. “With that objective achieved, the corporation has switched its focus to minimising customer prices and continuing the efficient delivery of quality services.” Dr King said cost savings and efficiencies had been identified that allowed the corporation to reduce prices. The five-year plan outlines total required revenue of $872 million, which included $335 million of capital expenditure over the next five years. About $772 million was invested under the 2008 water plan. New projects include planning and designing Colac’s water supply upgrade, mains replacement and renewals, and upgrades of Pettavel water storage basin and the Black Rock water reclamation plant.

LUKE Maher and Tim Macmichael have been appointed Football Development Managers (FDMs) for the Barwon Region to work alongside Geelong Region Development manager John Edsall in development and implementation of a strategic plan for football in the region. Barwon Commission region general manager Lee Hartman said the appointment of Maher, a previous employee at Football and Netball Geelong, and Macmichael, a qualified teacher and former AFL Tasmania development officer, represented a significant investment in football in the region. “Having Luke, Tim and John perform the role of a FDM will benefit all associated leagues, clubs and players, along with the next generation of footballers involved in local NAB AFL Auskick programs.” The role of the FDM is an amalgamation of the current AFL Victoria region development managers and WorkSafe AFL Vic Country Area Managers. The new positions will take effect in early July.

A gift for River BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Karl and Alex Waddell with baby Shiloh (centre) gratefully accept a cheque donated from Jordan with mum Vicki Penrice (right) and Alice and mum Kate Walsh from the Surf Coast Baby and Kids Market on Friday.

LOCAL charity Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gift has received a welcome boost as Surf Coast Baby and Kids Market managers Vicki Penrice and Kate Walsh handed over a $1,500 cheque on Friday. Karl and Alex Waddell established Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gift in 2011 when their son, River Jak Adam, passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Mr Waddell said they were hugely grateful for the donation and the money will help them achieve their goal of raising $300,000 to found an Australian-based SIDS research program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The market has been a fantastic support, we have a presence at every one and it helps us stay connected to the community we love and be face to face with midwives, parents and carers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to say a huge thank you to the market their generosity, we truly appreciate it.â&#x20AC;? The money was raised at the most recent market earlier this month through stall holder and entry fees and Ms Penrice said they were proud to be able to contribute to such an important cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we decided to make a donation after this market the natural choice was to Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;SIDS research is so important and the last one was our biggest yet so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled to be able to make a larger donation than we expected to.â&#x20AC;?

VISITORS to Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and forests have been urged to take care after recent heavy rainfall around the Otways and in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s south west. Parks Victoria eastern regional director Andrew Marshall said people were urged to err on the side of caution as a result of the significant weather system, even though it had not rained much in recent days.

DEPI agency commander Kendra Dean said the roads and tracks in

VICROADS has advised motorists that emergency pavement repair works on the Great Ocean Road between Kennett River and Grey River, which were suspended earlier this month due to wet weather, have resumed this week. Works will now be carried out until June 28 between the hours of 7am and 5pm, subject to weather. Speed will be reduced to 40 kilometres per hour during the works and a single lane

forests and parks would be extremely slippery and urged visitors to exercise caution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wet weather may also lead to trees falling across roads and tracks, and flooding in recreational and campsites. Visitors just need to be mindful of the potential impact on where they are visiting.â&#x20AC;? For the latest conditions in parks and forests, head to the Parks Victoria website at parks.vic.gov.au.

Local Rotarians receive awards THE Rotary Club of Torquay recognised the hard work of two of its members last Friday night One of the final responsibilities for retiring president Peter Bollen was to recognise Rotarians Darrel Brewin and Rob Harris as Paul Harris Fellows. The presentation of Paul Harris Fellow recognition is Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named after our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905. Darrel Brewin, who is well known for his work as chairman of the Surf Coast Relay for Life event, is a past president of the Rotary Club and has been heavily involved in organising the club golf day fundraiser. Rob Harris, also a past president of the club, was momentarily left speechless following his recognition as a Paul Harris Fellow. Rob has been a Rotarian for 30 years at four different clubs in Tasmania and Victoria. Rob later said that this was one of the proudest moments in his life, and that of the four clubs he had been a member of, his time at the Torquay Rotary Club had been his most enjoyable.

The evening commenced with retiring president Peter Bollen presenting a cheque for $2,000 to Operation Newstart’s Warrick Knuckey (see page 79). Rotarians Darrel Brewin and Rob Harris were then recognised as Paul Harris Fellows.

Torquay Rotary spokesperson Greg Plumridge said this is the Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs in local, national and international communities. It was then time to hand over the reins of the club to incoming president Jeanette Crowther for the coming year. Mrs Crowther introduced the team of office bearers who will support her for the 2013-14 year. Once the official formalities were complete the

fun began with everyone present being entertained by Anglesea’s Poppin Circus Girl Bronwyn Beard and her Circus Troupe. Sword swallowing, spinning diablo’s, a giant hula hoop performance, magic and escape tricks were all part of the interactive show that followed.

news 17 Last chance The Flybz drop lines for Refugee Week to gather firewood

Tuesday 25 June 2013

BY ALI DEANE

FABLICE and Gstorm are The Flybz, and last week they made a special visit to Torquay P-6 College to spread awareness of the plight of refugees and messages of peace and acceptance as part of Refugee Week. Hailing from Rwanda and Burundi in Africa, The Flybz share stories and messages through rap music, and on Monday students from grades 3-6 joined in on choruses in the dance studio following an inspirational assembly. Fablice and Gstorm escaped Africa after being recruited into being child soldiers and have been in Australia for seven and nine years respectively. “We didn’t really have school, but school is the future.”

The rap artists shared original tracks including “We are the same” and will soon be recording a song with Australian rock musician Paul Kelly. Teacher David Pace and Paul Stewart from Australian rock group Painters and Dockers were behind the project. In the library Kathy Mclennan and Lesley Eman explored various books on refugees with the students, and each student had the chance to express what Refugee Week meant to them through discussions and artwork, displayed throughout the library. “It was a really good opportunity to talk about refugees and open their eyes to issues they face. “And the performance just topped it off,” Ms Mclennan said. Head to youtube.com/watch?v=lfD0RX3nE1U

to learn more about The Flybz. Refugee Week from June 16-22 helps inform the public about refugees and celebrates positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society. It is a unique opportunity to experience and celebrate the rich diversity of refugee communities through theatre, music, dance, film and other events that take place all over Australia, and provides a platform where positive images of refugees can be promoted in order to create a culture of welcome throughout the country. The ultimate aim of the celebration is to create better understanding between different communities and to encourage successful integration enabling refugees to live in safety and to continue making a valuable contribution to Australia.

PEOPLE looking to stock up on firewood before winter fully sets in only have a few days before the autumn firewood collection season ends. The Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) has reminded people that all designated firewood collection areas will be closed from the start of July for the winter period. Designated collection spots in the Otways are the Centre area near Forrest, the Boorook area near Princetown and the Thompipe area near Irrewillipe. DEPI statewide land and fire coordinator Rob Price said during the closure, it would not be legal for people to collect firewood on public land until the start of the spring firewood collection season. “Anyone wanting to collect firewood before the end of the autumn firewood season should be aware that some designated firewood collection areas may already be closed because the supply in that area has already been exhausted. “The public will be able to start collecting firewood again from designated firewood collection areas from September 1.” DEPI and Parks Victoria staff will be patrolling parks, forests and reserves during winter to ensure people are doing the right thing. Firewood collection is only permitted during designated times of the year and from designated firewood collection areas. Typical on the spot fines are about $560. Offences that go to court may be liable for fines up to $7,042, one year imprisonment or both. For more information and updates, head to dse.vic.gov.au/forests/firewood or phone the DEPI customer service centre on 136 186.

Three women first to graduate RoadSTART ROADS Minister Terry Mulder congratulated the first graduates of the RoadSTART community driver education program at a ceremony in Flemington last week. Mr Mulder said the three graduates, all women – from Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia – would have been unable to get their driver licences without the RoadSTART program because they do not have a car of their own. RoadSTART was kick started by a $100,000 state government grant, giving adult migrants living in the Flemingon/Kensington areas valuable driving experience via a supervising driver and access to a vehicle. “The people who are participating in RoadSTART need their licences to help them get jobs and move around their communities,” Mr Mulder said. “I am thrilled that these three graduates have been able to receive the driving experience to enable them to gain their licence and, with it, a sense of achievement and independence. “I would also like to thank the volunteers who have given up their time to help others get their driver’s licence.” Moonee Valley mayor Cr Narelle Sharpe joined Mr Mulder in praising the new drivers. “It’s wonderful to see three of our community

members receive their driver’s licence and I am sure we can look forward to many more success stories from this program in the future,” Cr Sharpe said. “We are now on the lookout for additional volunteer supervisors. “The program has been so popular that we have a waiting list of over 300 learner drivers.” RoadSTART was launched in November 2012, following representations by the Rotary Club of Flemington about the need to help many migrants in the community who were socially and geographically isolated by language barriers and through not having a driver licence. The Bendigo Bank and Transurban are ongoing sponsors of the RoadSTART program, which is coordinated and run by the City of Moonee Valley. “I’d like to especially pay tribute to members of the Flemington Rotary Club which was the driving force behind getting RoadSTART off the ground, with a special thanks to Peter Cribb from the Rotary Club,” Mr Mulder said. “Their tireless work has meant this valuable program is delivering an important service to some very disadvantaged members of the community.”

To further help migrants from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds drive safely, VicRoads has also launched common road rule animations in five languages – Chinese, Vietnamese, Punjabi, Dari and Arabic. “The translated animations will demonstrate some of the road rules that are commonly misunderstood or unique to Melbourne’s traffic environment, including hook turns and passing or overtaking trams,” Mr Mulder said. “Through these valuable new resources, we will help new migrants access basic information and enable them to be able to drive safely in our community.” VicRoads has recently released three fact sheets which have been translated into 16 languages – Persian, Dinka, Cantonese, Mandarin, Cambodian/Khmer, Karen, Assyrian, Amharic, Vietnamese, Turkish, Kurdish, Tigrinya, Burmese, Arabic, Punjabi and Chin Hakha. The fact sheets have been designed to help migrants with services including evidence of identity and buying and registering a car, as well as advice on how to get their Victorian driver’s licence. Now available online at vicroads.vic.gov. au/languages are these new resources.

Super plate bid helps road trauma victims

THIS YEAR

LAST YEAR

A regional partnership with TAC and the Victorian Government Maintain vigilance about road safety. (Rural Vic Toll YTD) The above figures represent regional Victoria’s road toll.

PREMIER Denis Napthine has congratulated a generous bidder and Radio 3AW’s Neil Mitchell program for raising an unprecedented $170,000 for the Alfred Trauma Centre. Dr Napthine said the price paid for 1AA 1AA – the very first number plate carrying the new combination and the “Stay Alert Stay Alive” message – was believed to be an Australian record for a general issue plate. The state government released the new look combination a fortnight ago, before announcing it would be sold in an on-air auction, in conjunction with Neil Mitchell. Dr Napthine said the government had decided that any money raised would go towards buying vital medical equipment for the Alfred Hospital’s trauma unit. “We had no idea how popular 1AA 1AA would be, but we knew there would be interest in securing the first new number plate,” Dr Napthine said. “We were astonished at the pace of the bidding among so many callers who were delighted to compete for the number plate, knowing it was going to such a worthwhile cause.

“Within 35 minutes the price had gone from an opening bid of $2,000 to the eventual result of $170,000 which had us all in amazement. Professor Mark Fitzgerald, director of trauma services at the Alfred Emergency and Trauma Centre, thanked the government for directing the proceeds from the auction to new equipment. “Each year, several thousand trauma patients are brought to the Alfred, with many of the most critically injured being the result of serious accidents on our roads,” Professor Fitzgerald said. “The better we can equip our talented staff with the latest and best equipment, the more likely it is that we can make a real difference to the recovery of those who urgently need our care.” The Alfred will buy six bronchoscopes with these funds which is their number one equipment priority for treating road trauma victims Bronchoscopes are life saving equipment that help the treatment of trauma victims by removing blood clots from lungs. “We would not have got this result for the Alfred without Neil Mitchell and his listeners,” Dr Napthine said.

“To all of those who bid for the number plate, we are extremely grateful for your generosity – and especially to Dave from the Yarra Valley.” 3AW’s Neil Mitchell was genuinely shocked at the result. “I’m rarely speechless but several times this generosity left me without words,” Mr Mitchell said. “We had four or five people still bidding over $100,000 and the reputation of the Alfred was a big part of the reason. Everybody, from the $1,000 bidders up, loved the idea this helped the hospital. Let’s hope now it helps to save lives. “The successful bidder is a generous man, proud of his business and his state. He wanted the plates but he also wanted to help.” Minister for Roads Terry Mulder said it was pleasing that the new general issue number plates in 60 years were carrying a road safety message. “Our road toll is currently 21 below this time last year and we want to keep seeing it dropping. One road death is one too many. I’d urge all Victorians, particularly during the heavy rain which we are now experiencing, to take extra care to get home safely.”

news 19 Green thumbs needed for orchard project Tuesday 25 June 2013

BY JAMES TAYLOR VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help bring a project between the elderly and Surf Coast Shire students to fruition. The Heritage Orchards project – a partnership between the shire, the Diggers Club and volunteer organisation Timehelp – aims to grow orchards in schools to teach students about the joys of growing their own food, fostering local food security and instilling a life-long love of gardening.

The council is working with several schools towards the planting of the first trees, and Timehelp is now seeking volunteers to help students plant and maintain these orchards. Digger’s Club has provided 10 trees, handpicked for their hardiness, suitability for the Surf Coast region, fruiting times and flavour. Volunteers receive pre-placement training, ongoing support and a complimentary uniform. Timehelp national manager Lisa Kingman said volunteers could gain much from being involved. “This is a great way for people with time on their

hands to stay fit and active in their community, stay healthy in body and mind and at the same time helping out a younger generation. “We know there are people along the Surf Coast who could easily spare a couple hours per week. “It is flexible and often within walking distance from home. This is a really rewarding opportunity for retirees to use their skills and knowledge.” Shire mayor Libby Coker said the project would provide important opportunities for local young people to engage with the environment, gardening

and growing food. “It is important that young people on the Surf Coast have the opportunity to understand how food is produced and that anyone can grow their own food. “It is exciting that Surf Coast schools and a number of community organisations are getting on board this initiative and we look forward to the first trees being planted in the near future.” Anyone interested in volunteering for the Heritage Orchard program or other Timehelp initiatives should phone 5277 3411.

INTERNATIONAL Surfing Day (ISD) was officially last Thursday June 20, but in the spirit of surfing, it is a day that can be celebrated in many ways over many days. Created in 2004 by Surfing magazine and the Surfrider Foundation, ISD brings surfers from all over the globe together in celebration of the sport of surfing. From paddle-outs to beach cleanups, surf movie nights to mangrove restorations, it is a way to give something back to the oceans, waves and beaches that give us all so much. Now in its ninth year, ISD has grown to over 200 separate events in over 30 different countries. Branch president Richard Bennett said International Surfing Day was important for surfers. “It’s the day each year where our global tribe celebrates our experience, lifestyle and love of riding waves and caring for our precious oceans, waves and beaches. “Surfrider Foundation Surf Coast branch greatly appreciates the support of Quiksilver who is our host and partner in celebrating ISD with the Storm Surfers movie night. “Surfrider will be launching our Endangered Waves campaign for Bells Beach which is on the

w w w.tthe ebigsh hed d.ccom..au

endangered waves list. “We’ll be presenting on the threats to Bells Beach and surrounds as well as what we can all do to save and look after our beloved Bells.” “We’re very pleased that the stars of Storm Surfers will be in attendance to celebrate ISD with everyone. “The pioneering spirit and total commitment of Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones is truly inspiring for Surfrider and all the local community groups who are working together to co-create the world’s first Surf Sanctuary at Bells Beach.” For more info on the Endangered Waves campaign go to surfrider.org.au and the Surf Coast branch’s Facebook page. The Surfrider Quiksilver film night this Friday at Quiksilver head office in Torquay is just one way you can celebrate ISD. Doors open at 5.30pm, presentation and film start at 6pm. Bookings are essential with places filling quickly – to find out more, and if seats remain, RSVP Laura at laura.underwood@quiksilver.com.au. It is an all ages event with bar and food available for purchase. Quiksilver is kindly donating proceeds to the Surfrider Foundation on the night.

TAXTIME Talking tax with Sean Joblin HAPPY tax time everyone, let’s start with a simple one – do you need to do a tax return? For the 2013 financial year, the tax free threshold has increased from $6,000 to $18,200, meaning you don’t have to pay income tax if you earn less than $18,200. If you earn more than $18,200 you only pay tax on that amount above $18,200 this could be higher depending on your entitlement to offsets. You still need to lodge a tax return if your payment summary shows tax withheld or you have paid a PAYG Instalment for the 2013 Financial Year. From July 1 2013 the superannuation rate will increase to 9.25 per cent. Make the appropriate changes in your accounting/payroll systems and ensure you receive (employee) or pay (employer) 9.25 per cent. The compulsory super guarantee will gradually increase to 12 per cent in 2019. Many accountants say never spend money to save tax. This tends to be a good mantra, however, if you are thinking about that new piece of equipment or work vehicle – buying before June 30 may be a good idea. The small business asset instant write off amount has increased from $1,000

to $6,500, this means you can take an immediate tax deduction of $6,500 on the taxable purpose portion of your purchase. For the many Surf Coast businesses in the building and construction industry, the 2013 financial year brings a new report to complete and send to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). The Taxable Payments Annual Report details the total payments made to each contractor for building and construction services. Finally, I have had many clients recently forward on emails requesting details from senders claiming to be the ATO. Here is a message direct from our tax office friends. “We will never send an email requesting you to confirm, update or disclose details like your name, date of birth, address, passwords, credit card details” so delete any “ATO” emails requesting details from you. If you are unsure if you need to lodge a return in 2013, call the ATO on 13 28 61 or your accountant. In my next column, we’ll look at deductions and how to maximise your refund! Feel free to send any questions to info@sjas.com.au.

New bridges over nice waters were the Upper Gellibrand Road bridge, Carlisle Valley Road bridge and Gane’s Access bridge. Mayor Lyn Russell said prior to their replacement, each bridge had load limits applied for safety reasons, and were on the council’s priority list for replacement due to their age and condition. “C Pearce’s bridge provides tourist access to Marriner’s Falls, and also provides access to private property. “The Upper Gellibrand Road bridge is also important to our tourism industry, as it provides tourist links to Stevenson’s Falls. Barwon Water

Volunteer Kaye Cole and Torquay Salvation Army captain Catherine Abram were creating and compiling much-needed hygiene kits for girls in Africa, Asia and Central America last week. Heights Sewing Centre donated several sewing machines and more than 20 people assisted with cutting, sewing and packaging of 200 kits which will be sent to feminine hygiene organisation, Days for Girls International. The organisation’s mission is to provide women with the kits so they do not miss school and therefore receive the education they need to break the cycle of poverty. Without the kits, girls can miss up to three months of schooling each year. Torquay Salvation Army will be making more kits on Thursday, for information on volunteering or to donate hotel sized soap, clean face washers, fabric or underwear call 5261 5675.

also uses the Upper Gellibrand Road bridge to maintain their pipelines. “The Carlisle Valley Road bridge is an essential timber industry bridge, providing access to Midway timber coupes. “Gane’s Access bridge, while providing access to a farming property, is no less important as it allows one of our local primary producers to work their land.” Each new bridge is of concrete construction and will last at least 100 years or more. Cr Russell said there were 135 bridges and major drainage structures in Colac Otway Shire, which

formed an essential part of the greater road network. “This funding program has allowed council to replace five bridges in total, and we have another two bridges scheduled for next year – Lyness Access bridge at Carlisle River and the Sand Road bridge at Glenaire,” she said. “Replacing bridges is an enormously expensive endeavour and this funding program has helped rural councils across Victoria replace ageing infrastructure without having to hit residents with an even heavier rates burden.” “We appreciate the state government’s support for our vital infrastructure.”

news Land stewards celebrate 24

BY ALI DEANE AS PERFECT winter waves rolled in along the Surf Coast on the June long weekend, a dedicated group of surfers took time out of the water to show Bells Beach their appreciation with a weeding and planting day. Surfers Appreciating Natural Environment (SANE) were joined by local recreational surfers at their monthly working bee; a tradition that has been ongoing for 25 years. SANE’s Graeme Stockton, who has seen the changes in the area over the years, said it was a tremendous day, and the first time all the recreational surfing bodies had got together and worked collectively. “In just a short time all the broken glass removed from the roadside, coastal tea tree weedlings removed from the Wave heathland and 100 Indigenous plants planted whilst great surf rolled on in the background at Winki – all in good time for rain this week.” Mr Stockton said when SANE first started working bees in the Bells Beach Reserve, it was looking very denuded. “What we inherited with the middle island at Winki was a classic example of heavy machinery coming in,

and the legacy was very bad agricultural weeds. “After many years of work SANE has clawed the site back bit by bit to get it to its present state of ecological restoration. “But sadly, some surfers are careless and show a sad disrespect to their unique environment by using it as a toilet stop.” SANE’s founder Charles Bartlett championed their motto Don’t Destroy What You Came To Enjoy back in 1988. “We hope that message can be embedded into the psyche of all, not least the entire surfing fraternity as it is our own special playground and if we don’t look after it, who will? It’s a privilege to surf a place like that in our backyard. “And it holds whole other values than surfing. “The terrestrial flora and fauna, marine flora and fauna, the Aboriginal history, ancient fossil history and Point Addis Marine National Park.” Mr Stockton said the challenge now was halting the increase of any footprint. “The local surfing community is well-placed with a lot of knowledge to provide good outcomes for these places. If we’re providing good land stewardship, then the environment will be better off.”

Climate change educators from India and Indonesia in Torquay recently while touring the region’s schools.

Important climate lessons shared BY ALI DEANE CLIMATE educators from India and Indonesia visited the region recently to share ideas on climate change. Their visit was with the first skill share program of its kind and is administered by the Australian Conservation Foundation’s Climate Reality project on behalf of AusAID. The teachers spent time at Clonard College in Geelong and St Therese Catholic Primary School in Torquay, before heading down the Great Ocean Road to Port Fairy Consolidated Primary School to speak to students on how they have embraced tackling climate change. Although hailing from two very differing towns of Sumatra in Indonesia and New Delhi in India, the teachers agreed there were some similarities in Australia, and they would be taking ideas and inspirations back home to their schools. “In India we try to include concepts into the curriculum, and teach sustainable habits,” climate leader and teacher Susan Thomas said.

“In our schools we are very aware, but down south it is not as widespread. “It is much more effective here. “You start young, with a sensible approach. “We’ve got to save the planet for future generations. We ourselves have got to be the change, and lead the young ones.” Azizah Nasution from Green Teachers in Indonesia explained it was all about knowledge and practicing good habits. “This is a fantastic opportunity for Indian and Indonesian teachers, there’s been a lot of sharing. “We need a concerted effort. Motivating each other is important, and we are looking forward to going back and spreading the message further.” According to Ms Nasution, most schools back home on the island had no power and lacked resources, but the green teachers volunteer their time, and the schools are getting on board. Ms Thomas said it was important to practice the seven R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle, refuse, repair, rethink, and repeat some of these every day.

Holiday fun in urban battlefield BY ALI DEANE IF THE thought of an urban skirmish gets you excited, then why not get down to Laser Strike in North Geelong these school holidays where you can bring your computer games to life. Laser Strike is an original combat simulation involving infrared laser guns and a range of militarystyle games and missions set in an outdoor urban battlefield. Like paintball but without the pain or the bruises, players develop team strategies to complete different tactical missions and scenarios with experienced referees on hand. Each hit reduces available health points, until the player gets â&#x20AC;&#x153;killed or retiredâ&#x20AC;? from the game. Several different weapons are on offer including short range sub-machine guns through to long range telescopic sniper rifles, each with their own tactics and uses. Owner Jason Cahill said the best thing about Laser Strike was that it brings computer games to real life and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action packed fun.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone can play, of any age. We have kids from seven, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun family activity too, sometimes the parents enjoy it more than the kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Laser Strike there are objectives, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just go out and shoot anyone. You split into teams and there are different missions to choose from.â&#x20AC;? Cahill and his team built the unique urban battlefield from a bare paddock, which now boasts a nine-room barracks, thousands of tyres, barriers, hay bales, cars, trucks and even an ice cream van. The laser skirmish guns shoot harmless beams of infrared light, like a remote control, they make lots of noise and have sensors on the target lighting up to show a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hitâ&#x20AC;?. The outdoor urban battlefield is the only one of its kind in Geelong and players get to wear a camouflage suit and war paint for two hours of action packed fun. Bookings are essential for all sessions. Head to laserstrike.com.au, email geelong@laserstrike. com.au or phone 1300 76 46 86 to book. Laser Strike at 15 Douro Street, North Geelong (next to Murrell Chauffeurs) is open every weekend and daily during the school holidays.

Geelong Cat Joel Selwood enjoys an end of season battle with his team mates at Laser Strike in North Geelong.

There will be morning tea and lots of freebies. Cr Michelle Heagney, City of Greater Geelong Portfolio Holder for Arts and Culture, expects it to be a great free family morning. “What more could you ask for at the start of the winter school holidays? “This is the perfect introduction to an unusual and intriguing exhibition that explores and expands on our understanding of Geelong’s social history in a fun and unique way.” The free family fun morning will run from 10am to midday this Saturday June 29. Rumour Has It will run until October 13 and feature the work of all 12 finalists. For more winter school holiday fun, why not get into the many craft activities the National Wool Museum hosts each day (at no extra charge).

Firefighters learn the ropes at Apollo Bay BY JAMES TAYLOR

Big Brands,

AN ACCIDENT last year where a car plunged 90 metres from a cliff at Cape Patton has inspired the Country Fire Authority (CFA) to improve its steep angle rescue training. Last month, firefighters from Apollo Bay, Geelong, Warrnambool and Hamilton took part in the rescue course on the steep hills near Apollo Bay. The crash at Cape Patton in December killed the male driver and left a woman trapped on a rock shelf next to the ocean. CFA Barwon south west technical rescue instructor Byron Kershaw said the handling of that job by the Apollo Bay volunteers was amazing. “The pressure on them over an eight-hour rescue was incredible.” A technique used in the Cape Patton rescue was the mechanical advantage pulley system, which involves 10 people hauling up nine metres of rope for every one metre of stretcher ascent. “We’re by ourselves for nearly every job for at least an hour so we’re a very isolated brigade,”

Mr Kershaw said. “It makes you better at what you do, but the Cape Patton job stretched us to the limit. “The challenges for us are bus loads of tourists every day, narrow roads, drivers unfamiliar with the road and distracted by the view. “We do breathing apparatus, road and rope rescue and search and rescue with just 15 operational members.” He said everyone in the three-day course did 12 drills, with firefighters switching between the various roles in each drill. “We’re teaching people to step up as the rescue commander. “We’re teaching people to work as a team. “Everyone learns to do a lot of checking of welfare, whereabouts and progress.” He said mixing career and volunteer firefighters in rope training was part of building a technical rescue team in the Barwon south west region. “The four districts work together with their emergency response tables so that we have a complete picture of our technical response capability.”

Grants open for more men’s sheds GRANTS of up to $60,000 are now available from the state government to build new men’s sheds in the community. The grants to extend the rollout of sheds, where men can work on projects at their own pace, were announced by South Barwon MP Andrew Katos last week. “Men’s sheds are valuable community facilities that give men a place to meet, establish social networks and work on meaningful projects that benefit the community.” There are already men’s sheds groups in Torquay, Anglesea, Ocean Grove and Leopold. Community Services Minister Mary Wooldridge said $1.5 million was available to build up to 25 new sheds through the latest round of the state government’s Strengthening Men’s Sheds initiative. “Through the first two rounds of funding we have provided $290,000 to strengthen the sustainability of men’s sheds and $700,000 for the refurbishment of existing men’s sheds. “Now we are supporting the establishment of new sheds in areas where they are most needed.”

Incorporated not-for-profit groups can apply for a grant to construct a new men’s shed building, redevelop an existing building into a men’s shed, or redevelop a building so that a men’s shed can become a co-located element of a multipurpose community facility or hub. Priority will be given to projects that can demonstrate a high level of need for the project in their community, significant partnership and/ or support from relevant community groups such as the local council, neighbourhood house or adult learning providers, and a strategic plan to sustain the operation of the shed. The grants close on September 6. Applicants must contact the Department of Human Services’ local connections team in their area about their proposal, and it is strongly recommended applicants also seek advice from the Victorian Men’s Sheds Association. For more information head to dhs.vic.gov. au/for-business-and-community/communityinvolvement/men-in-the-community/ strengthening-mens-sheds. Head to vicmensshed.org to contact the Victorian Men Shed’s Association.


The bronze boat sculpture artist Dean Bowen entered in the 2011 Lorne Sculpture Biennale. Bowen is one of more than 100 artists whose work will sprawl the streets and landscapes of Lorne during the 2014 event.

r o f p u e n i l s t s i t r A

BY TIFFANY PILCHER LORNE’S streets, beaches and bushland will once again star as the dramatic backdrop for the work of more than 100 artists who have been announced for the 2014 Lorne Sculpture Biennale. The highly anticipated lineup features a diverse range of contemporary Australian sculpture artists who are set to delight, amaze and challenge the thousands of visitors who flock to the biannual event. Contributing artists include Louise Paramor, Domenico de Clario, 2011 Lorne sculpture winner, Greg Johns and returning Melbourne artist Dean Bowen. Bowen has been exhibiting paintings, bronze sculpture and prints for more twenty years and has exhibited in Australia, France, Japan, Switzerland,

and the United Kingdom. He said the event’s unique location makes it a huge drawcard for artists and visitors alike. “It’s such a lovely place, to have an event like this in a small regional town that is so visually spectacular makes it really special for the town, the state and the artists.” Bowen is working on a three metre bronze sculpture of a cat that will feature in the Sculpture Trail in which 41 major, permanent sculptures will be presented along the beautiful coastline from Lorne Pier to Erskine River. He said the idea for the sculpture came from his love of his own cats and the connection it gives him to historical art. “I often create sculptures inspired by cats. “I have been fascinated by my cats but also the monumental sculptures of ancient Egypt.

“There is certainly a connection between my own work and primitive artworks and mine tend to take on an anthropomorphised form – they’re humanised.” Bowen said he chooses to work with bronze because of the permanence and beauty of the material. “It’s a beautiful medium, it’s sensitive but also has great longevity so it will take a lot of forming and battering but it’s incredibly durable.” Festival curator Julie Collins announced the lineup last week and said the event will celebrate artists whose sculptures are reflective of both contemporary ideas and the landscape of Lorne. “The impressive and varied selection of talent includes artists whose work occupies or utilises the 3D, achieves high levels of artistic integrity, quality and above all, innovation.

“I can’t wait to see their proposals take shape.” Organisers are expecting more than 50,000 people to view the exhibition next year, 20,000 more than in 2011 and Ms Collins said there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes to create the best biennale yet. “Next year’s event promises to push boundaries and will be the most comprehensive, diverse and premier sculptural event in Australia.” The festival will offer a series of free outdoor events that include a mix of temporary and permanent pieces, large and small artworks, performance art, guided tours, sound and light installations, night events, workshops and a range of educational programs aimed at all age groups. The Lorne Sculpture Biennale will be held from March 8–30 in locations across Lorne. Visit lornesculpture.com for more information.

G R A P E V I N E BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Beer ye, beery, beer ye tap at your local bar and makes for a great gift idea. Speaking of Lion-Nathan, no sooner has their newly acquired Little Creatures brewery sold out of their recent small batch “Shepherd’s Delight” pints, that a new pint will be coming hot on its heels with the new “Mr Obadiah” Rye Porter Small Batch release not far away. Expect another exceptional addition to the range! One new beer that set tongues wagging at the “Good Beer Week” was the collaboration between three pretty cool craft brewers located in and around Melbourne’s Abbottsford district – Mountain Goat, Matilda Bay, and Moon Dog - hence the name ‘Abbey Collaby 2013 India Red Ale’. This is a super rare release that was only created for the GBW, and only very limited quantities have been made available to retailers. It’s quite a rich red ale with full malty sweetness, subdued smokiness and upfront hoppy-ness from the Amarillo hops. Weighing in at 7.1 per cent alcohol, you best be careful with that Eugene! Also be on the look out from Mountain Goat for their new limited release cross breed Hopfweizenbock - very tentatively titled “Brooklyn and the Goat”. It’s a strong German-style wheat beer that is another collaborative effort between Mountain Goat and Brooklyn Brewery. This is only scratching the surface, you realize, as there’s also exciting new releases like the “Boris” Imperial Stout from Feral Brewing in Perth, The Williams “Oatmeal” Stout from De Bortoli, the Doss Blockos Dark Lager 500ml, Cascade Brewery’s new “First harvest”, and not to be out done, the Kiwis over at Montieth’s Brewery in NZ have their new range of 500ml beers that includes an Apricot Wheat beer and a Ginger Beer. And then there’s Matso’s Lime and Ginger, and Hawthorn’s Australian Lager, and, and, and…

Imogen finds her market BY TIFFANY PILCHER

JON HELMER

THE amount of exciting new releases and goings-on in the world of beer has lead me, nay forced me, to feature all things beer in this week’s edition of Grapevine. Hang on, maybe we should rename it Hopvine – this one week only of course. With all the hype, rush and flurry that was the recently held “Good Beer Week” experience, it’s great to see a host of new releases entering or just about to hit the market. There’s definitely been an increased fascination and focus on a stronger, more defined hops imprint in the craft beers that I’ve been seeing of late. And thinking about it, I can’t help but liken it to the wine industry’s (and consumer’s) seeming obsession in the late 80s/ early 90s with oak – the bigger the better was all the rage back then. Alcohol levels too have been on the up as brewer’s look to push the boundaries in their efforts to stand out from the pack in what is really heating up to be a very crowded and competitive craft beer market. If you’re the kind of beer enthusiast that’s drinking what I’m thinking, then hopefully you’ll find some of these products featured below to be right up your alley, so tap into a bevy of these new beauties. This July, Lion-Nathan are set to launch their new series of well known beers including James Squire Golden Ale, James Boag’s Premium, Toohey’s Extra Dry, Toohey’s New, Hahn Super Dry and Hahn Premium Light in plastic 3.2 litre PET bottles that specially fit the re-usable “Tap King” Draught Beer Dispenser Head. Specially designed to fit your home fridge and last for 21 days, this fantastic new development pours a fresh draught of beer with a creamy head just like you get off

THE inaugural Surf Coast Art and Design Market has boosted its star power with Geelong’s very own singing celebrity Imogen Brough set to impress crowds with a special solo performance. Brough’s soaring vocals will take centre stage at the market on July 14 and she said she’s excited to perform in Torquay and thank her loyal local fans for their ongoing support of her blossoming career. “I have gained so much support, especially with a lot of young people and it’s been really lovely and really humbling. “I feel the whole Geelong region has really been behind me so being able to play shows locally has been a way for me to say thank you and give back to the people who have shown me their support.” Fans can purchase Brough’s EP, Counting Waves, on the day and she will be available to sign copies. Local three piece acoustic band Trilogy will also take the stage to perform classic hits as well as songs charting today.

The market is set to showcase high quality emerging and established local artists and designers across many mediums including painting, home wares, jewellery, clothing, children’s products and more. The event will be indoors to make sure everyone stays cosy while enjoying a local market experience during the depths of winter. The market will be held at Peppers The Sands Resort, 2 Sands Boulevard, Torquay on Sunday July 14 from 9.30am to 2.30pm. The bar will be open for hot and cold drinks and light lunches.

LOL and ROFL in Aireys Inlet BY ALI DEANE A CAST of top comedians has hit the road to take the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to audiences across Australia for the 15th annual roadshow. The comedy roadshow will hit Aireys Inlet this Sunday as part of a packed tour schedule with some of the best local and international comedians on board. Dave Williams, Matt Okine, Nick Cody, award winning British comedian Zoe Lyons and the hilarious purple puppet Randy make up the lineup and it is anticipated to be one hilarious show at the Aireys Pub this Sunday night. Aireys Pub’s Phil Johnson expects it to be huge. “We did it last year, and it’s so good to have a laugh, especially at this time of the year, the nights are long and cold, it’ll be a bit different to our music, so it should be an awesome night.” Last year there were 90 shows in over 65 Australian towns, covering a distance of over 25,000 kilometres. That was before sell-out seasons in Singapore, Hong Kong, and India as part of OzFest.

For tickets to the show at Aireys Pub this Sunday June 30, phone 5289 6804, or get them at the venue on the night. Show starts around 7pm.

ABOVE: Award winning British comedian Zoe Lyons is part of the lineup. RIGHT: Australian comedian Nick Cody’s brand of stand-up is a unique combination of thought provoking material ranging from brutally honest and uninhibited storytelling to rapid fire and hilarious comedy. Randy the hilarious purple puppet will be one of the highlights of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow when it comes to Aireys Inlet.

Freestyle urban jibs part of flow state BY ALI DEANE THE Southern Hemisphere winter has hit, Victorian ski resorts have up to 30 centimetres of snow and excitement is in the air as the countdown begins for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. What could get skiers and snowboarders more excited about the winter season than the 63rd offering

from ultimate snow sports movie creator Warren Miller. Flow State takes you into the mountains of Japan, Norway, Austria, Switzerland, the United States and Alaska for face shots in deep powder, a thrilling ride down steep slopes, into the trees of Japan, and impresses with the urban jibs of today’s freestylers. The film showcases world class athletes Colby

West, Jess McMillan, David Wise, Julian Carr, 12 year-old prodigy Aspen Spora and Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety as they throw down some of the most impressive action that Warren Miller Entertainment has ever captured. You will feel like you’re actually there as Miller exploits the gamut of angles from helmet camera footage, spectacular slow motion, drops you out of helicopters and skimming across the surface of glacial lakes. Flow State focuses on the concept of “flow”, the mental state where a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energised focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the action. It is characterised by complete absorption in what one does. Veteran athlete Chris Anthony who has appeared in many of Warren Miller films has compiled a top 10 list for first time skiers and boarders this season. “Dress correctly through layers, take proper ski socks, don’t scrimp on boots, take a lesson, pace yourself through half days, keep hydrated with plenty of water, ride the correct length ski or board, always wear eyewear, and don’t over think it – skiing and snowboarding are really fun sports, they’re basic but we tend to make them more difficult. “Have fun and enjoy.” If you missed the Geelong premiere, you can get your hands on Flow State on DVD this October, or re-visit one of Warren Miller’s many other films at your local video store or online at warrenmiller. com.au.

GM food risks crop up at film night BY ALI DEANE THE controversial issue of genetically modified food will be up for exploration at the next offering of enlightening film nights by local group Surf Coast Energy Group (SCEG). Award-winning Genetic Roulette – The Gamble of our Lives by Jeffrey Smith examines the effects of genetically modified (GM) food and food systems in the United States, with new evidence pointing to its contribution to rising disease rates. GM foods are produced from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or genetically modified crops, involving specific changes introduced into crop DNA by genetic engineering techniques. In the US, genetically modified food does not have to be labelled as such. Some are labelling the process as a science experiment. Others regard it as having a role in feeding the growing world population, and broad scientific consensus suggests GM foods pose no greater risk to human health than conventional food. But one thing is certain, Genetic Roulette will make you question the economics of the growing GM industry and take a second look at the correlations between this growth and declines in the health of livestock and farm workers where GM has been heavily used. Anne-Maree Sullivan of SCEG poses the questions. “What are the risks? Have we had access to all creditable research data regarding this technology or

has Monsanto (powerful multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation) skewed and hidden the truth in order to make money?” The night will also feature Bob Phelps from Melbourne-based advocacy group Gene Ethics who will bring attendees up to date on the situation in Australia, and host question time.

As always, there will be a delicious supper, assured to be GM free. Head to Surf World Museum, Surf City Plaza, Torquay next Friday July 5 at 7pm, entry by donation. For the trailer go to geneticroulettemovie.com. SCEG film nights take place monthly from May through to October and this is their fifth season.

Surf Coast Energy Group’s upcoming film night will feature the not-to-be-missed Genetic Roulette, a film exploring the genetically modified food industry, and how it may be impacting on our health. Here an American youngster campaigns against the growing industry.

Farmer’s armour a textile graft BY LIV HUNNAM ARTISTS from as far away as Queensland and Western Australia are vying for the $1,000 prize money offered for two exhibitions at CrossXpollinatioN – a feast of textile and fibre art happening at Colac in July. Red Rock Regional Theatre and Gallery (RRRTAG) has teamed up with Colac Otway Performing Arts and Cultural Centre (COPACC) to present a busy program of exhibitions, floor talks, workshops and a makers’ market. A $500 prize has been posted for artists to create an innovative, multimedia work, incorporating a fibre component with the theme of Grafted at Cororooke’s RRRTAG, on weekends from July 6 to August 25. For another chance at a cash prize, the Farmers’ Armour exhibition is the second display to offer $500 for the best wearable art design at COPACC from July 6-14. CrossXpollinatioN’s creative director Carole Redlich said Grafted and Farmers’ Armour had fired and encouraged the imagination of artists from near and far. “The very concept of CrossXpollinatioN – encouraging artists from a great variety of disciplines

to cross-pollinate, and the themes of Farmers’ Armour and Grafted have captured their imaginations,” Mrs Redlich said. “CrossXpollinatioN was planned by RRRTAG and COPACC with a group of local artists to reflect the interest and talents of the community’s textile artists.” Art Without Borders, a textile exhibition chronicling 12 migrants’ journeys to Australia, will also be at COPACC during CrossXpollinatioN. The program includes 16 workshops covering sculptural felting, basketry, book binding, papermaking and more. Melbourne’s Catherine O’Leary and Geelong’s Dijanne Cevaal will exhibit work with Princetown fibre artist Sue Ferrari at COPACC during CrossXpollinatioN. COPACC is also hosting a Creative Foyer from July 6-13 daily between 10am and 4pm to encourage community artists to bring forward their creative work, as well as a Suitcase Makers’ Market in the COPACC foyer from 9.30am-4pm. Art makers will be able sell their work at the market on Sunday July 7. Details of CrossXpollinatioN exhibitions, workshops and entry forms are available at copacc.com.au.

WHAT’S small, white, falls freely and is good fun? Snow? Yep – and rice. I’m sure you will have experienced at some stage the unpacking of all the groceries and slitting open the packet of rice – you’ve misjudged the opening and whooshka, it’s all over the floor, just like snow. And just as slippery. I still have a huge belly laugh when I think of my feeble attempts on skis – even in the “nursery” slopes, I was out of control, willing my knees to take control over the direction the skis were taking me. But no, even with hardly a degree of inclination my skis just wanted to go the other way. Oh to be competent and versatile like all those skiers buzzing by me. Their outfits and styles as varied as the huge range of dishes you can make from rice. We might commonly think of using rice as an accompaniment to curries and stir-fries, but rice can be eaten for breakfast as in the congee dish so loved by the Chinese, or lunch as sushi if you’re turning to Japanese food, or arancini if your thoughts are leaning towards Italian dishes. For mains, you can travel the world of dishes – fried rice, paella, risotto, jambalaya, and biryani. Desserts too can feature rice and I still have fond memories of the milch rice that I used to think of as being so exotic. It was made by the dear mother of my best friend at school. She was German and as a kid in the 60s

the full repertoire of dishes from around the world that we all now enjoy were not so accessible then. If I stayed over at my friend’s house I used to love the pork chops cooked with fennel, or a schnitzel – but best of all was the bowl of (tinned) peaches accompanied by the ultimate comfort food dessert of rice cooked in milk with sugar. Yum! Depending on who you ask there are between 7,000 and 140,000 varieties of rice cultivated throughout the world. It’s a staple food for more than half of mankind and indeed carries a “world of nations” vocabulary all of its own. Long grain, brown, basmati, jasmine, glutinous, black, arborio, red, carnaroli, jeera, calasparra, wild, even broken rice! In China, it’s common to ask “have you had your rice today?” And, indeed, while enjoying rice at home the other night, my darling pronounced how much he loved rice and that we don’t have it often enough. He was genuinely bemoaning the lack of rice in our daily routine! So to address this deprivation I shall be making more rice dishes to enjoy. Over these chilly nights, hearty curries, one-pot wonders can all be matched with rice. It’s been a while since we’ve had risotto – so here’s just one variation for you to enjoy. Meanwhile, I will take a trip down memory lane and make myself a steaming pot of sweet, creamy milch rice. So rice me now and quickly!

ADVERTORIAL

Will your new home be green? Improving the energy efficiency of that new home you are planning to build is not such a big challenge. MURRAY Riccardi of Rylock Windows in North Geelong says that government regulations these days make adequate wall and ceiling insulation mandatory, and this prevents a lot of heat escaping from the home during the cooler months, and heat coming into the home during the warmer months. Complementing the insulation, architects and building designers can advise you on many aspects such as the orientation of the building, allowing the sun to help warm your home in the winter, and keep out the unwanted summer heat. Orientation is a very important aspect of an energy efficient home, and some plans we have seen over the years have been for designs that were not suited to the building site. Having got that as perfect as possible for the style of home you want to build on the site you have chosen, you should then consider which windows can be single glazed and which should be

double glazed. Obviously windows in the garage don’t need to be double glazed and if the windows are small less heat and cold will pass through them and double glazing will not be as important. However, lots of glass means they should be double glazed no matter what direction they face. Murray said that most of his clients double glaze all the windows of their new homes, as the cost of double glazing is based on the area of glass and the type of glass, with smaller windows such as in the laundry or other utility areas costing little extra for double glazing. Murray suggests that you take advantage of the wealth of knowledge available at Rylock Windows in North Geelong, and bring your plans with you when you call to look at their windows. “That way we can better advise you of window types and glazing options,” he said.

Murray Riccardi (TOP LEFT) of Rylock Windows in North Geelong has plenty of good advice about double glazing.

Ms Ryan brings 23 years of experience to the centre and has worked extensively with a wide variety of patients including babies and children.

Ms Ryan studied and practiced in Sydney before moving to the local area 17 years ago and said she is excited to join the Surf Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading chiropractic health centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thrilled to join the team because they are a relaxed bunch who are passionate about great health but are not into the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hard sellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love Benâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s professional yet laid back attitude and I really get a buzz out of seeing peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health turn around, the longer I work with people and their health the more I see how stress and emotional health affects our physical being. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to spend time with patients helping them identify and develop strategies for dealing with stress in our daily lives.â&#x20AC;? Surf Coast Family Chiropractic Health Centre offers a range of treatment options for people of all ages and can assist in the prevention and treatment of many ailments.

Salvation Army thanks Dear Editor, I write from The Salvation Army to sincerely thank your readers for supporting this year’s Red Shield Appeal. People have been very generous to The Salvation Army. Across the nation tens of thousands of volunteers mobilised to collect for our appeal. On the doorknock weekend alone we raised over $6 million and we are confident on reaching our Australia-wide Doorknock target of $10.2 million. We are all too aware that right now huge numbers of Australians are struggling to make ends meet. Our own research shows 54 per cent of our clients feel worse off than they did last year. A huge two thirds have cut down on basic necessities. It’s unquestionably very difficult for many people – the people we assist are doing it extremely tough. There is still time to donate to the appeal and if you’d like to help, please call 13 SALVOS – 13 72 58 – or visit salvationarmy.org.au. We are truly humbled by the phenomenal support we receive from so many individuals and businesses. The Salvation Army is simply there to help others. We are focused on helping people who have hit hard times, to turn their lives around. We thank everyone in your local community who got behind our appeal. We acknowledge this great kindness. It’s this support that is critical to The Salvation Army and helps us to carry out our vital work. Neil Venables (major) The Salvation Army – Southern Territory

Corangamite advice Dear Editor, Re the Federal seat of Corangamite and Darren Cheeseman. I stood for South Barwon within Corangamite as an independent protesting against the negligence of Fair Work Australia and Victoria’s Work Safe; and knowing both the surf and now the electorate my advice to Mr Cheeseman is to stop dog paddling in circles, show a bit of bottle and save yourself by swimming through the rough surf to the beach. By which I mean, stand erect and continue to call for Rudd.

The public after all deserves to see a good match on that one day in September: Rudd versus Abbott. John Dobinson North Balwyn

Sign of the times Dear Editor, I read with interest that the Ocean Grove Football and Netball Club have put up a new sign with a club sponsor at their ground. As a local business owner in Ocean Grove I was approached some time ago regarding advertising at Shell Road around the soccer pitch. I was interested in this. My sister has a son who plays for Ocean Grove Soccer Club and so it made sense to sponsor a sign. I was told that the signage policy is being changed and that our company would have to wait until the new procedure is in place before my sign could be sent to council for approval. I then read about the new sign at the football ground and am perplexed. The club won’t return my calls and I just don’t understand; is this a miscommunication all round, or a case of discrimination? Helen Ocean Grove

A climate question which still stands Dear Editor, The fishing rally of June 4 highlighted much of what troubles humanity’s future in the 21st century; simply, the human race is not behaving sustainably despite important planetary indicators showing disturbing change, decline or overload. This is true of the marine environment locally and internationally. Yet, if political opportunism and audacity account for anything, then the Shadow Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt and Liberal Candidate for Corangamite Sarah Henderson should receive achievement awards. Both were quick to echo the recreational fishing chorus that “politics not science have been deciding

federal marine national park borders”. But my unanswered question at the rally still stands Mr Hunt. “Will you be applying the same sort of ‘science’ to our marine environment that you and your shadow cabinet have applied to climate change?” Gauging by your policy the answer is no. Tony Abbott famously described climate change as “crap” – this, despite 97 per cent global scientific agreement on climate change. Crap is what best describes your insulting and costly pseudo-climate science Green Army response. Amazingly, not one major economic commentator endorsed it and anyone who cares to scratch the surface will see it for what it is – a cynical and costly farce. Graeme Stockton Torquay

Constitutional recognition of local government Dear Editor, Who does Surf Coast mayor Libby Coker think she is fooling with the words “formalise” and “legitimise” when referring to the funding arrangement between the federal government and shire councils. This implies that the current arrangement is illegitimate, unconstitutional and hence illegal, and she along with other councillors are knowingly and willingly breaching the provisions of the Constitution of the Commonwealth in accepting any funds allocated by this method. The allocation of any council funds towards the promotion of only one side of the proposed referendum is blatant political propaganda and entirely inappropriate. The electorate are smart enough to see that there is much more to this referendum than a simple funding issue, and they will respond once again with a resounding “no” vote to counter any covert attempts to undermine the authority of the states. We already have more than enough government in this country. Can you trust these people? If you don’t know, vote “no”.

Rotary supports Operation Newstart

Peter Bollen presents cheque to Warrick Knuckey.

RETIRING Torquay Rotary president Peter Bollen presented a cheque for $2,000 to Operation Newstart’s Warrick Knuckey two Fridays ago. Operation Newstart is a partnership between police, education and youth sectors. It is an early intervention program for young people aged 14-17 years who experience serious difficulties at school and may be in conflict with the law. Students are nominated by their school for their potential and interest in making changes. The program aims to improve students’ motivation and confidence to continue with school and/or employment goals, and have respect for community and the law. The money donated from the Rotary Club will be used to assist with funding a student from Surf Coast College to participate in a Kokoda Trek experience later this year. For more information on Rotary or how to support Operation Newstart, contact new president Jeanette Crowther on 0430 403 087.

BOOK REVIEW WITH GREAT ESCAPE BOOKS

Red Moon

Maya’s Notebook

IT IS not very often that such a fine literary horror novel blazes out of America. Every teen thinks she is different and her parents are staid and boring. But when Claire Forrester’s conservative parents are brutally gunned down by FBI agents in their homes and she flees for her life, she realises she is very different. She is a Lycan. Long have Lycans lived amongst humans, regarded themselves as humans. For hundreds of years within world culture, those infected with the Lycan virus – the werewolf virus – have lived and worked in the general community. They go to university, are doctors, hold lesser positions in government. But they must take their medication to keep their ability to “turn” under control. The results of this constant drugging are unpleasant and deemed by many to be unnecessary. There’s a rising movement by those with the Lycan virus against the big brother control of the state. As the government hunts down suspected Lycan terror suspects, often just normal mums and dads, a mania emerges within the community that has been compared to modern-day Muslim terror witch haunts the United States. In one scene, Patrick Gamble walks onto an airplane and hours later stepping off it, he is the only passenger left alive – everyone else brutally murdered by a Lycan terrorist. He is an unlikely hero who is held up as the champion for humans, but actually becomes the defender of Lycans. This is where Red Moon is a fine novel as it crosses genres and examines the social and political ramifications of insidious government control. This is a wild ride of a book, where you will question the very essence of what is what it is to be human.

MAYA Vidal’s life has gone seriously off the rails after falling into a life of drugs, crime and prostitution. She’s being pursued by Interpol and the FBI, but also by a very unpleasant crime gang who may murder her. Only 19 years of age, her beloved Chilean grandmother decides to secrete her away to the most remote part of the world she can dream up, an island off the coast of Chile. Dry eyed at the airport, she hands her a dense notebook, saying “you’re going to have time to get bored Maya. Take advantage of it to write down the monumental stupidities you’ve committed, see if you can come to grips with them”. This is the basis for the novel. As she travels across Chile to journey to the island of Chiloe (an island off Chiles’ west coast), we learn something of her character. She’s sassy, wild, has a very smart mouth, but is beautiful and kind hearted in a quirky, streetwise way. Towering above them with blue, purple and blonde hair, a nose ring and stomping boots, the Spanish speaking island locals don’t quite know what to make of her at first. But there in the company of a torture survivor, her adopted lame dog Fahkeen – who noone messes with – and a host of many other unforgettable characters, she finds sanctuary and gradually understands the meaning of love and loyalty. She might just have the adventure of her life. This novel is a triumph for Isabelle Allende. It will definitely please all of her dedicated fans and will certainly draw a younger readership to novels.

Have you been having hassles with your nearest and dearest? Jupiter provides a welcome opportunity to work on partnership problems over the coming year. You’ll find it’s easier to find common ground than at other times. Plus, the more generous and forgiving you are, the richer your relationships will be. But resist the urge to be a compulsive Capricorn this weekend.

Rambunctious Rams are feeling restless! Jupiter shifts into your domestic zone this week so, over the next 12 months, some Aries will renovate, build an extension, move house, buy a second property or travel. Others will expand their family via a wedding or pregnancy. Avoid being impulsive on Sunday, otherwise you may say or do something that you later regret.

Have you been capitalising on your talents? Get set for a run of good fortune, as Jupiter sashays into your sign for the first time in 11 years! Travel, sport, study and adventure are all favoured, as you charge out of your Crab cave and turn lucky opportunities into successful projects. Be inspired by birthday great Helen Keller “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

Your career is set to expand in exciting directions but don’t get too carried away. Keep your feet on the ground. When it comes to a professional project or business matter, there’s a strong likelihood you’ll go over budget. So some serious cost-cutting is required, to get things back on track again. Over the next few weeks you’ll be inspired by a creative new crowd.

Your ruling planet Venus visits your domestic zone so the next month is the perfect time to clean, de-clutter, re-decorate or renovate your living space. You’re also in the mood to cook up a storm and entertain, plus buy beautiful things for your home, but avoid being extravagant with cash and careless with credit. Some single Bulls will find love in the local neighbourhood.

Your Cat charisma gets a boost this week, as Venus vamps through your sign from Friday until July 22. So it’s time to flirt up a storm, pamper yourself and call in a few old favours. With Jupiter jumping into your soul zone, spiritual pursuits and helping others are on the agenda. Plus, if you have a problem you can’t solve, tap into your intuition for the answers you require.

Check your passport is up-to-date because foreign shores beckon over the coming year, as Jupiter jump-starts your travel zone. Higher education is also favoured and some studious Scorpios will learn a new language. Be generous about sharing your aspirations for the future with others. The more you involve loved ones in your plans, the more enjoyable they will be.

Have you been having relationship problems? With Venus visiting your partnership zone from Friday through until July 22 perhaps it’s time to swallow your pride and hold out the olive branch of peace? Plus Saturn challenges you to be more organised and focused at work. If you’re looking for employment, don’t give up! Strive to be patient and incredibly persistent.

Dynamic Mars is moving through your sign until July 13 so aim to be at your gregarious Gemini best, as you dash through each day with extra energy and enthusiasm. But, with Jupiter cruising through your cash zone over the coming year, watch your urge to splurge doesn’t get out of control. Pluto demands that you pay close attention to balancing the books.

Lucky Jupiter joins the sun and Mercury in your business contacts zone, so it’s very important to network as much as you can over the next week, and the coming year. Virgos can be hesitant to trumpet their talents but if you don’t promote yourself, why should anyone else? Confidence is the rocket fuel that will take your career and your life to the next level.

Jupiter shifts into your intimacy zone, until July 2014. So expect a boost to your sex life, as your libido blossoms. For celibate or single Sagittarians, a financial partnership flourishes, or you receive an injection of funds via an inheritance, pay rise, divorce settlement, superannuation payment or bumper tax return. Just make sure you spend and save any extra cash wisely.

With Jupiter activating your creativity zone (plus the Sun trine Neptune) make the most of your plethora of Piscean talents. Draw inspiration from Carly Simon: “There’s always a creative side to me, even when it’s quiet musically… like painting or decorating or planting a garden.” The Piscean moon on Friday and Saturday puts you in the mood for movies and music.

Young gulls take flight

The Barwon Heads Seagulls under 10s.

Jet Kneebone from the Barwon Heads Seagulls under 10s side displays perfect form as he releases one to the boot, amid this tight pack on the weekend. Team mates George McCulloch, Matt McAteer and Sam French stay with him, as they move up the field at Barwon Heads.

It was a fast moving game on the weekend between the Seagulls and the Blues in the under 10s – the Winchelsea Blues made it tough for the Seagulls.

Barwon Heads Seagulls Stirling Shier and Matt McAteer keep watch as Jye Bartley boots one towards goal. The Gulls’ under 10s fell short by 14 points in Round 11 on the weekend, going down 4.5.29 to Winchelsea Blues’ 6.7.43 in Barwon Heads. Photos: MICHAEL CHAMBERS

MY BIG CATCH WITH GARRY KERR

Tuesday 25 June 2013

ANGLERS at Skenes Creek will have better access to the beach thanks to funding via recreational fishing licence fees. The new Recreational Fishing Initiative is providing funds for works across Victoria to help provide improvements to our fish habitats as well as access for recreational fishermen to our ocean shorelines. Numerous applications have been received under this grant scheme from VRFISH and other fishing organisations to help improve the lot of recreational fishermen, and Skenes Creeek has been one of the beneficiaries. Recreational anglers casting a line at Skenes Creek, near Apollo Bay, now have better access to the water thanks to a $32,000 project funded by recreational fishing licence fees. Member for Polwarth Terry Mulder said the Association of Geelong and District Angling Clubs and local organisations had constructed steps and railings from the Great Ocean Road to Snapper Rocks, using a grant from the state government. “The Coalition government recognises the significant contribution recreational fishing makes to the state’s economy. “Fishing is a popular pastime for over 720,000 Victorians and supports regional businesses ranging from hotels to bait and tackle stores. “The government believes improving angler access to productive fishing spots, as we have achieved with this project, is a terrific way to reinvest licence fees. “Improving access is a priority for the Recreational Fishing Grants program and the Victorian government’s $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative.

FISHING REPORT ANGLESEA

Still whiting being caught off the inshore reefs, as well as the rocks and beaches along our coastline Some pike have also been caught near the reefs from our beaches Still some reports of the odd pinkie Good salmon being reported all along the coast as well as off Lorne Pier Anglesea River is slow but still plenty of small bream with the odd good size one to be caught. For all the latest fishing news and all the right advice drop by and see us and we will do our best to get you out there, fishing productively with the right gear and the right bait. The Great Ocean Road Outdoor Centre Anglesea, phone 5263 2330.

For all your bait and tackle in Apollo Bay contact Steve or Jen; they will be more than pleased to help you, phone 5237 6434.

BARWON HEADS

The Barwon River is still producing some trevally The fishing has slowed down a bit due to the rains and some dirty water coming down but salmon, whiting and bream are still to be caught.

TORQUAY Whiting continue to be caught on inshore reefs Salmon are still on the go off most beaches In Spring Creek, small to medium bream are being caught. Remember the Torquay Tackle and Sports.

QUEENSCLIFF

TROUT FISHING: As I advised in a previous column, the Queen’s Birthday long weekend was the cut-off time for freshwater anglers to take one last opportunity to catch trout in our rivers this season. The rivers are closed for about three months during our winter, but anglers can still fish for trout and salmon in Victorian lakes and reservoirs. The annual trout closed season applies to rivers and streams, however, this does not mean that good trout cannot be caught!

Hugh Hanson with his 63 centimetre brown trout, which weighed around three kilograms. It was caught in one of our local inland still waters.

TIDE TIMES

St Leonards is still producing good sized whiting and squid Swan Bay is seeing garfish in the bay as well as whiting being caught at the entrance Point Lonsdale is still seeing salmon and garfish being caught The White Lady is still producing whiting as well as the odd squid The creek continues with the odd trevally, as well as mullet and salmon being caught.

Recently, I had young Hugh come into my store in Anglesea carrying a rather large bag and asking if I wanted to see what he had in it. Knowing anglers and their tendency towards practical jokes I was a bit hesitant but in the end I said “sure Hugh, whack it up on the bench and we will have a look”. Well to say he made me take a deep breath would be a understatement. I reckon the look on my face would have been worth bottling. I hope you all feel the same when

Bellbrae midweekers grade 1 triumph!

TENNIS Geelong’s midweek season wound up on June 11, with the BPTA competition concluding a week later. All the results for the Tennis Geelong competition are on the association website, with the new season starting on Tuesday July 16. Saturday senior and junior competition is now well past the halfway mark and we’ll have a look at the likely finalists in next month’s edition. There’s no play on Saturday July 6 (school holidays), then just four more matches (five for the six draw teams) before the finals commence. Couch potatoes might watch Wimbledon – or have a shot at the junior and/or senior clinics at Centre Court Indoor on July 9, 10 and 11. Then there’s the Racquet Works junior masters on Friday July 12. Call the centre for details on 5272 1760. Coach Cameron Govan has a great fullday coaching program on Fridays, July 5 and 12, 9am-2pm, at Barwon Heads tennis club. Call Cameron on 0408 517 620 or email essentialtennis@hotmail.com. Check out the Tennis Geelong website, tennis.com.au/tennisgeelonginc, for all results and a whole lot more. The next “Tennis in Geelong” column is scheduled for Tuesday July 23. Please feel free to send in any ideas, stories - even your criticism is most welcome! Send material to me, phil.hunt@moolaptc. org (pictured) via email.

THE midweek ladies grand final in grade 1 was a simply fantastic match between arch rivals (and great mates), Bellbrae and Wandana Heights! Played in ideal conditions at Clifton Springs, the two gun teams from the top grade turned on a real show, with Bellbrae coming out as very

worthy premiers. Check out all the other midweek results on the Tennis Geelong website, tennis.com.au/tennisgeelonginc. (L-R) Marg, Lyn, Leanne, Kristie, Jennie and Kim, from Bellbrae; Heather, Carol, Lisa and Ida, from Wandana Heights.

It’s all happening at the Grove! OCEAN Grove is, arguably, the sporting and fitness centre of the Greater Geelong region! With a passionate football and netball fraternity, a state-of-the-art lawn bowling facility, a world-class surf beach... and a busy and vibrant tennis club, tucked away at the corner of Asbury and Madeley streets, just a short jog from the shopping centre. Founded way back in 1924 and originally sited in The Parade, the club moved to its current spot in 1970, enjoying the “golden years” of tennis in the 70s, 80s and 90s – the many premiership photos on

the clubroom walls tell of those days and right up to the present day too. In 2005, the club underwent a major facelift, with five mod grass courts constructed to replace the old asphalt. Court lighting was installed and a whole new era began for Ocean Grove Tennis Club. The club is highly prominent in senior, junior and midweek competition with Tennis Geelong, with coaching available from Julie Golightly (0418 145 028) and David Franks (0448 274 709) and tennis for just about anyone of any standard most

Coach David Franks with (L-R) Maureen, Shelley and Tania.

days of the week. There’s the “in house” tennis. The veterans on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9am until noon – very social indeed and anyone over 55 can be in it. Call Ken on 5251 5925 for details. Night tennis is on for ladies on Wednesday nights and for the men it’s Thursday night – a great setting on superb courts. Check out the club’s website, oceangrovetc.com. au or give club secretary Anne a call on 5256 1906 – you’ll be glad you did!

Veteran players (L-R) John, Cathy, Bob and Heather.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB THIS week we had the SWDLGA Salvers for those that played in pennant. The weather was perfect for both – if you discount the very cold starts. Friday was the Jean Russell Salver at 13th Beach and while our teams didn’t feature in the winning circle, former member Marg Hales, now playing for The Sands, won with Wendy Muller. Sunday was the Joye Burton Salver for the business ladies and was played at Anglesea. Our combination of Myrell McConachy and Marilyn Armstrong were runners up to Lindy Kay and Gabrielle Nagle from Barwon Heads. We have another round of parties coming up in July. Joe Camilleri is now performing a second concert on July 19 due to popular demand. Bookings can be made on the web. The following weekend on Satruday 27 July we have the Presidents and Captains Dinner and our guest speaker is former Richmond footballer and Victorian Police Assistant Commissioner Emmett Dunne. The evening will include special presentations to long standing members, including our very own 60-year member Jimpy Shears. Bookings can be made through the office for this event.

WITH MARGOT SMITH

Les Cooper. NTP winners were Jim James, Trevor Tully, Mervyn Worsfold and Graeme Callahan. The ladies had frosty and fine conditions for Thursday for their foursomes. Scores were not overly flash, but our winners Isobel Lear and Margaret Harvey were surprised and delighted. Runners-up were Janice Pekin and Ros Holland and they will represent the club in the district event.

TORQUAY GOLF CLUB

FROM THE GOLF SHOP

Wednesday was a stableford event for the men. Frank Denahy was a clear winner in C Grade with 39 points, as was Brian Carpenter with 41 points in the Seniors. In A and B grades winners were decided on count back, with Calvin Robbins winning A Grade with 38 points ahead of Keith Turner, and Peter Calvert winning B Grade with 41 points ahead of director

It was a beautiful weekend for golfers with still and sunny conditions and the early birds treated to frosty fairways and greens. Saturday was monthly medal for the men and a par event. Our medal winner was Stuart Leigh with 3 up winning B Grade as well. Other winners were Garry Beurteaux in A Grade with 1 up on a count back from Scott Fowler, Michael Preston in C Grade with 1 down, and Jackie Pearce in the ladies with square. NTP winners were Peter Richardson, Valda Connelly, Anthony French and Bill Boledziuk. Garry Beurteaux scored an eagle on the 8th hole taking 8 balls from the eagles nest. With half the course being given over for the Joye Burton event, we had a shot gun start and 18 hole stableford event on the back nine on Sunday – great practice for the hardest holes. Michael Hume won the men’s event with 42 points and Boe Trickey was runner-up. In the ladies, Jenny Inman won on a count back from Aileen Morton. NTP winners were Hans Schneider, Neville Henderson, John Somerset, and Deg Hume. Enjoy your golf.

WE START off this week with the mixed foursomes final winners scores, taking out the best gross the team of Karen Bourke and Dave McPhail with 148, the best nett score winners Ainsley McCallum and Tim Sinnott with 133 congratulations to all players. This week’s Tuesday’s ladies competition was cancelled due to the ever persistent rain, most of the ladies were found upstairs in the lounge area next to the fire, good call girls! The 2nd round of the Veterans Trophy will be played on June 30. Wednesday for the men the sun was once again shinning but for those that have to use carts it was unfortunate as they were not allowed out. Unperturbed, though, some tried to walk. It was hard for the golf shop staff to watch them then struggling to walk, limping in after their game to the bar. Most endured to get that well-earned beer and of course it was then all worthwhile. Texas scramble was the competition for the day and the winning team of John Riordan and Bruce Hillbrick scored 82 points from Ian Foot and Joe Magliano with 81 points. The ball run down went down to 74 points. The seniors still played their own stableford round and Ron Sharman took the honours with 31 points. NTPs Ian Foot, Mark Thompson, Alan Scholten, Lyndsay Hathaway and Bob Gough. Dennis Abbey hit the jackpot. Friday’s par competition winner for the men

was Ian Sandner with a fabulous score of +7. For the ladies Barbara Young-Harding finished with -1 to hold onto 1st place. NTPs Don Forsyth, June Laidler and Bob Hayles. Congratulations to Paul Brunt shooting a hole in one on the 12th. Ron Sharman took out the jackpot. Saturday Paul Brunt was still in good form taking out A Grade with 39 points. B grade went to Geoff Grayling scoring a solid 41 points. Geoff Lamont also putting in a good effort to win C Grade also with 41 points.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB THE golf season is now well under way. It is the end of the financial year and our golf fees are due and payable by July 1 if we are to renew our membership. This got me thinking about our membership. We are a social club where the members pay a nominated fee and so are then able to come together to enjoy the social and sporting benefits of being a member of the club. Technically that gives us access to the amenities and the course but in reality our club gives us so much more. Have you ever thought who organises all our competitions? Who oversees and maintains the finances and running of our club? Who plans for the future development of our social and golfing areas? Who represents us in the Geelong District Golfing Association? Who is going to organise our big Carnival of Golf 2013? Who is going to chase up all those sponsors? Who does the cards and reporting of results? Who helps out around the course when we have special events? Who are the people who work around the course on garden beds and rough cutter and general odd jobs? My question to you is: would you like to assist and become a good contributing member? We need your help and would be pleased if you came forward to suggest how you might be able to help in some small way. In the first instance contact Tony, Peter or Ron. Thank you.

FROM THE

mat

WITH ANGLESEA BOWLING CLUB THE long weekend in June saw 97 bowlers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some local members and some from Torquay and Winchelsea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; enjoying the benefit of our synthetic greens. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mixed four winners were Jim Reed, Dorothy Millard, Gordon Bubb (Winchelsea) and Helen Mann. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triple winners were Allan Fletcher, Ken Mollison and Bob Berrill. Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winners were Keith Hornibrook, Mary Porter and Shirley Emery. On Saturday June 15, in beautiful winter sunshine, 36 bowlers enjoyed playing mixed triples. The winners were Barry Mason, Mary Porter and June Ford. High praise is extended to the greens/maintenance committee for their hard work recently in upgrading the condition of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;ditchesâ&#x20AC;? by eliminating the sand and installing artificial turf.

Winter program

Surf Coast boys climbing

Brod von Brandenstein is one of the young guns for the boys under 15 Surf Coast FC team.

The Anglesea Bowling Club invites experienced bowlers to participate in its winter program (weather permitting) on MONDAY Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commencing at 12.30pm TUESDAY Mixed commencing at 10.30am BYO lunch SATURDAY Mixed commencing at 12.30pm Contact the club by 9.30am on 5263 1229 to register your name. Dress is neat casual.

Barefoot bowls THE Surf Coast Football Club under 15 Metro Boys are continuing their climb up the ladder, this week scoring a great win against Laverton Park. The under 15 boys have skillful players in all positions, are starting to put together some nice teamwork and now sit in second place on the ladder. The under 17 boys also had a brilliant win over the weekend, beating a very strong Breakwater team 4-1.

Despite having to cope with a hasty, last minute change of venue and a late start, the boys played some great football, delivering on some promise from earlier in the season. The under 17s have gelled really well this season under coach Gerry Desmarais and have been very unlucky in some earlier games. They are now looking like they are a strong chance to make finals, and if they make it, may just cause a little bit of havoc.

Also in local leagues the under 12 boys continue to try very hard and are learning with each game. With most players in this team in the lower age group the emphasis is on players learning and developing, not results. Coach Pat Wood said he was really pleased with the attitude of the boys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won a game yet but all the players are trying very hard and learning. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it is all about at this age.â&#x20AC;?

For those wishing to come and try bowling, contact the club on 5263 1229 or 0499 856 613 to arrange a suitable time. Bowls will be supplied by the club together with some coaching at a cost of $10 per player for 2 hours (wear flat sole shoes).

Happy hour Are you looking for something to do on a wintery Friday afternoon? Come and join in the fun and frivolity at the Anglesea Bowling Club for a happy hour or two from 4.30pm onwards. You will be made most welcome.
