TAKING THE PLUNGE FOR CHARITY

“Do unto others”, is a saying used to describe humane treatment of each other, thus promoting a better life for all, but jumping out of an aircraft at 10,000 feet, just to benefit other people, goes way beyond the scope of normal behaviour and shows

the dedication that some people have to try to help those less fortunate than themselves. That is exactly what happened this weekend, two very brave individuals, John Reynolds, from Entre Naranjos, and Joanne Riley, from San Miguel, plummeted towards the ground, in a death defying drop, that saw them raise thousands towards two very much needed causes, Spanish based

charities representing research and care for those suffering with Alzheimer's and Crohn´s and Colitis. After a short delay because of fog, the exhilaration as the wind swept through their hair, distorting their faces beyond recognition, couldn´t wipe the smiles off their faces as they reached terra firma and proved that they did go well and truly beyond the call of duty, as their Continued on Page 2

Both were absolutely elated with John describing it as one of the greatest experiences of his life. Both John and Joanne have first hand experience of the causes they represent, with John recently losing his mum to Alzheimer’s and Joanne’s suffering a continual fight against the serious bowel disease Crohn’s, so much so that there was some doubt as to whether Joanne would have been fit enough to jump, but a substitute was on the bench in preparation, as John´s wife Gill was prepared to make the leap in Joanne´s place if needed, to make sure that no charity missed out on the funding. John and Joanne had hoped to raise 1,000 euro for each of their representative charities, but the pledges received had already gone well beyond that. Of course, that was only a target and they are still more than happy to receive donations to go towards the funds. Though some might think them crazy, there is no doubt that everyone will consider them brave, as they have shown how determination wan win over fear and that commitment can raise but awareness of issues that affect so many, but also much needed financial support, especially in these financially trying times.

FCO MINISTER FOR CONSULAR AFFAIRS VISITS ALICANTE Last Wednesday, newly appointed FCO Minister Mark Simmonds MP visited the province of Alicante to learn more about the issues faced by thousands of British nationals living in and visiting the region. The Minister was accompanied by British Consul Paul Rodwell. The Minister visited Foncalent Prison where he was met by the prison director and a representative of the Samaritans, who carry out regular visits to English speaking inmates. Mr Simmonds then travelled to Torrevieja where he met Age Concern volunteers and visited Villajoyosa Hospital where he spent time with hospital staff and volunteers. In the afternoon, Mr Simmonds met with the Mayor of Benidorm, Agustin Navarro, before visiting some of the town’s most popular areas. Mr Simmonds commented: “Today’s visit to Alicante gave me an fascinating insight into the experiences of British nationals living and visiting Alicante. I met some remarkable people fully committed to their communities who raised with me some of the issues that are a matter of concern to many British residents in Spain. I also saw how the British consulate in Alicante, one of the busiest in the world, works to support British nationals.” The Minister and staff at the British Consulate in Alicante discussed the provision of consular services to the thousands of British nationals living or visiting the areas covered by the Consulate (the regions of Valencia and Murcia, and the province of Albacete).

BILL TOLEMAN - RIP

Bill Toleman of La Siesta passed away on Monday 16th July and this was a sad day in the Costa Blanca bowls calendar. Bill was a kind and gentle natured man and with his wife Crystal were a formidable force when bowling was introduced in the Costa Blanca in the 1990`s. Bill was an outstanding bowler and skip and I remember with fond memories when I was fortunate enough to be in his team in the Nationals in 2001 with Tony Pilling. Bill represented Spain on several occasions and won National titles. Boy could he bowl with weight and he was one of the quickest bowlers on the mat I have seen. I only wish we had seen more of Bill on the green when he retired but sadly he suffered serious kidney failure and was on dialysis for many years. Not once did I hear him complain about his predicament. My condolences go to his wife Crystal and his dear mother in this very difficult period in their lives. God Bless you Bill and may the angels keep looking after you. John Fyles Haigh

CANTEMOS! CHILDREN'S CHOIR LOOKING FOR NEW RECRUITS

However, more importantly, Glenn has asked us to covey his heartfelt thanks to his father´s friends, who had tried for days to call on Alfred, unaware of the shocking scene waiting behind the walls of his home, prior to access to the property

being forced. To Pam and John, Victoria and Mike, and Ron and Margaret, Glenn would like to thank you for everything that you did.

‘EXITE’ ING TIMES FOR LOCAL RADIO

Much has been written in recent days about the closure of one English Language radio station and the impending threat to others. Most of it is absolute rot and quite why individuals or organisations would want to spread such alarm amongst the expatriate community, when so many of us simply want to integrate and enjoy our lives here in Spain, seems to be completely irresponsible, so perhaps we should explain to those of you who really want to know the facts rather than negligent gossip, just what is going on within the domain of Radio Licensing here in the Valencian Community. In November 2011, all radio stations, representing all languages and all of the different parts of the community, were made aware of the fact that there would be a "Concurso" or "competition" for FM licenses within the Valencian community. A well established national law-

firm was appointed to coordinate all of the applications. As part of the bidding process applicants were required to submit a complete business plan showing details of the current and proposed operation together with technical data and an outline of their intended future investment. There were in excess of 462 bids submitted for the licences by 115 companies of which 121 bids were accepted. Following additional investigation a further 6 were later rejected. The list of those successful companies was then published by the lawyers in May. It included "JAL INTERNATIONAL CAPITAL INVESTMENTS, S.L." in position 17 which "operates" EXITE RADIO. Other English-language applicants include Spectrum FM, Talk Radio Europe, and Bay Radio. It is not known which other local English Language stations are on the list as they will have applied

in the name of their Spanish Registered or Parent Company so they are not recognisable under their broadcasting name, but sources suggest that there are only two. The procedure that is now being carried out by the Valencian community does not represent anything new, nor is it aimed at any particular part of the community. It is simply the government’s attempt to tidy up and rationalise an area that is completely out of control, so much so that here on the Costa Blanca South one radio station, no longer broadcasting, was actually transmitting over frequencies in use by the Emergency Services, so it is no wonder that the region has now decided to clean up the airwaves. It seems only right that those radio stations that have not made any attempt to legalise their operations should be closed down. As well as applying for a license to broadcast in the Valencian

Community Exite Radio also has an ongoing application under consideration in Murcia. In view of some of the nonsense recently published here on the Costa Blanca, on social networking sites, internet forums and in the local media, never has the quote “Don't believe everything that you read in the newspapers,” been nearer the mark!

NEW BISHOP TO ARRIVE BY DONKEY

In the XVIII century King Felipe V and Cardinal Belluga ordered the destruction of the Orihuela city walls as a punishment to the city because they failed to support Emperor Carlos VI of Austria). Much of the original fortification was torn down although one part that did survive was The City Gate or The Gate of Olma, Puerta de Olma. Declared an object of cultural interest it is the only gate or entrance to the city that still remains. At the upper part of the gate, still to be seen are the shield of the city and the image of St. Michael, who is the city protector. Today there is still a tradition whereby every new Bishop to the diocese rides through the gate on the back of a white mule. Following the appointment of the new Bishop, Jesús Murgui, six weeks ago dates have now been confirmed for his arrival. The program is scheduled for September 29th and it starts at 12 midday. Following a stop for lunch in Cox Murgui is

expected to arrive in the parish of St. Anthony, where he will pray. He will then be taken by mule to la Puerta de Olma, where he is scheduled to arrive at 17.30. He is then expected to arrive at la Puerta de Loreto, the main door to Orihuela cathedral, at 6pm where he will celebrate mass. Last week the donkey which will carry the Bishop was blessed by the vicar general and the local parish priest. "Pepita", so called because one of her owners is called Pepe will bear this not insignificant load. She will become the fifth mule to do so since the tradition was reintroduced nearly 30 years ago. The City Council is responsible for organizing the entry of the Bishop from St. Anton to La Olma, while the diocese focuses on the organization of the ceremony at the Cathedral. Bishop Murgui will be accompanied by the Festivities Committee, whose members will all be on horseback, as will a four man police escort.

‘VIVA’ FOR TORREVIEJA’S YOUTH BY KEITH NICOL Torrevieja’s youth were treated to two days of information, fun, culture, music dance, sports and education last week as part of the first Youth Expo.

Thousands of students from Torrevieja’s school district made their way to the Microdisco, Municipal Center Entertainment (CMO), located behind Carrefour,where Torrevieja’s Mayor, Eduardo Dolon, accompanied by the Director General of the Instituto Valenciano de la Juventud (IVAJ) Marcos Sanchías and the Councillor for Youth, Rosario Martinez, joined in with the festivities. The fair brought together hundreds of young torrevejenses, who were able to gather information on education and activities from the 40 booths set up for the occasion.

This first edition of the I-Expo Juventud de Torrevieja is an initiative of the departments of Youth and Citizenship specifically designed to offer information to the student population aged 12 to 35 years about many topics such as education, employment, health, leisure, free educational opportunities, cultural activities, sports, volunteer associations, and much more. The Expo blossomed from an idea first put forward by Viva TV and grew into a fabulous two day event. Inside the CMO, the ground floor brought together some 40 exhibitors from varied sources, among which were the Local Development Agency (LDA), the SERVEF, Armed Forces, Department of Health Torrevieja , Universities, Sports, Education and Culture, Schools, etc. In addition, on the top floor of the Macrodiscoteca, there were talks, workshops and exhibitions. The green area surrounding the CMO offered other leisure activities such as exhibitions of graffiti, breakdance, hip-hop, cockfighting, warhammer, XBOX 360, fingerboarding parks, rugby, cricket, karate, football, golf and other sports, along with an entertainment area and stage for singers, dancers,rappers and entertainment. Such was the success of the event that the Director General of the Instituto Valenciano de la Juventud (IVAJ) Marcos Sanchías said that he would like to take the concept and introduce the youth fair to other regions around the community. The fair also took into account that around 53% of Torrevieja residents are of International origin, and information, workshops and specific demonstrations were presented in both English and Spanish. The future plan is that the second youth fair will be held in May 2013, to highlight educational opportunities to students before the school year comes to an end.

TORREVIEJA FINED FOR FAILING TO CURB PUB NOISE A judge in Elche has condemned Torrevieja city council and ordered them to pay compensation of 2,000 euro each to two neighbours who have had to put up with loud music from bars on the avenida de las Habaneras, as they, “failed to enforce the law against noise pollution”.

The Los Verdes green party have been quick to point out that this is now the fifth such ruling against the city council since 1997 in the area, the first completed in 2000, and another upheld by the Supreme Court of the Community. The Court ruling condemns the City for failing to continue to take measures for verification of noise emission, reducing time and even revocation of licenses (of establishments) and required measures to maintain public safety, in particular, prevent substance use in the vicinity of the buildings in the

affected residential area . The ruling party acknowledged the efforts of the police to reduce the noise level, but the police were also left without the support of the authorities responsible for enforcing license matters. The City had argued there have been no formal complaints about noise from the more than 400 residents living in those buildings since 2005, and that the original matter had been resolved months before these cases were submitted to the judicial process, but this argument was dismissed by the court. However, the judge did look favourably on the City in one sense, reducing the compensation claim from the requested 12,000 euro to 2,000 euro, as the noise problem was present at the time of purchase of the property in 2000, so the owners at that time would have been aware of the matter prior to agreeing the purchase of the property. For their part, in a statement by the Los Verdes, they state that this is yet another matter that, “shows the disinterest of the PP government in respecting the law against noise pollution and the rights of neighbours to rest and tranquillity", and that they have been, “idle in controlling noise pollution”. This ruling could well now set the precedence for more complaints for compensation to be raised through the courts, as town halls battle to balance the demands of business, whilst ignoring the legal rights of the residents in their municipalities.

SCHOOL BUS ISSUE RESOLUTION DEVELOPING As the new term started, many parents and pupils who were expecting the usual bus service to school found themselves stranded and abandoned, after cutbacks enforced by the Valencian education authority, on instruction from the National Government, meant the unannounced cancelation of quite a lot of municipal school bus services. The councillor for education in Orihuela, Rosa Martínez, explained that the problem came about as the regional planners looked at the situation which means that children living more than 3 kilometres from school have a right to transport to school, but many of those pupils involved fell within that perimeter. However, there is also an “exceptional circumstances” clause, which would force the provision for transport if the need arose, to which Rosa Martínez explained that having to cross the “barancos”, the motorway plus many other obstacles on the way means that the pupils of the Orihuela Costa automatically fall into the exceptional circumstances category. For this reason, after extensive negotiations between Orihuela and Valencia, the service for primary school pupils has now been restored to the same level as last year, albeit with a reduction in seating in some places, but not to the detriment of the travel arrangements. The same negotiations are now continuing to try to restore the service for secondary schools, which have seen their allocation of seats reduced from 162 last year, formed by three 54-seater buses, to just 30 places this year. There is a meeting planned for Monday evening for all parents whose children have been effected by the cuts to school buses at the 3 main schools in Orihuela-Costa (LOS DOLCES, IES PLAYA FLAMENCA & Nº18 PLAYAS DE ORIHUELA). The meeting will take place at the Orihuela-Costa Town Hall in Playa Flamenca at 19:30pm. If there is enough support there is a possibility that the school buses may be re-instated so we urge all parents concerned to turn up and

make themselves heard. Free translation will be provided at the meeting. Although this is still to be resolved, Rosa Martínez has vowed to continue her, “very difficult”, fight with the regional authorities, who are not quite as aware of the needs of the people of Orihuela as the councillor representing the educational needs of the residents has herself.

EUROPEAN CONGRESS GREEN COMMERCE The City of Torrevieja was flying the green flag for a change, this time on behalf of Spain, at last week’s Green Commerce Conference in Brussels. Torrevieja’s Mayor, Eduardo Dolon, the Councillor for Citizen Participation and Relations with the European Union (EU), Agustina Esteve, and Torrevieja’s President of the Association of Small and Medium Businesses of Torrevieja (APYMECO) participated in the conference as part of the European Project for Green Commerce, which was held in the Chamber of Commerce and Business Union (Beci) in Brussels. Torrevieja’s City Council is a partner with the Department of Industry, Trade and Innovation, Fomento de San Sebastián, the Packaging Technology Institute and the International Association of Cities for Recycling. During his presentation to attendees, Dolon stressed that Torrevieja was chosen to represent the Valencian Community to participate in this European Union project becuase, as a municipality, Torrevieja has been committed to environmental action for many years. This project is focused on the different ways that trade can have an impact on the environment. Among the objectives of Green Commerce is to involve small business in the fight against climate change, promote environmental responsibility in the commercial sector, reducing energy consumption and waste production through simple techniques, stimulate innovation in environmental issues in the trade disseminating success stories and educate consumers on the development of environmentally friendly shopping habits. In essence, it’s the small things that count, such as using shopping bags instead of plastic bags, energy sav-

ing lighting and other innovations. Many expats will remember their upbringing of receiving shopping in brown paper bags, putting their milk bottles out at night for the electric cart of the milkman to collect and drop of a delivery for the morning prior to the introduction of the plastic bottle and then cartons in 1970. A lot of ideas from the more austere times of the 1950’s and 60’s are now making a return into modern culture and the European Union is dedicated to cutting down on carbon pollution and landfill waste. In Torrevieja, a total of 47 of the 50 small and medium businesses in the city have been audited, approved the assessment by the European Union. The Green trade certificate will allow them access to special businesses grants and a special logo will appear in various publications of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of the Generalitat Valenciana. During her presentation, Agustina Esteve stressed that after the success of this first meeting, more than 50 Valencian cities have formally requested to participate in the European project of Green Commerce.

‘CHORALE’ ON TOUR Members of local group “Chorale” returned last week from singing at a function in Mijas Costa, near Fuengirola, in southern spain. The singers, under the direction of their conductor Christine Eames, were invited to perform at a wedding in a private hacienda, which turned out to be a sumptuous affair with all kinds of entertainment, including a Spanish flamenco group. Two pieces were included in the service – “Give me joy in my heart” and a special arrangement by Mrs Eames of Victor Young’s “When I fall in love”. After the marriage the choir performed a concert of popular pieces. “At a wedding, you are singing to every generation” said Mrs Eames, “and the wishes of the happy couple have to be taken into account”. Accordingly, the programme included “Love Changes Everything” (Webber), Van Morrison’s “Have I told you lately”, and Robbie Williams’ “Angels”. The couple also requested Coldplay’s “Fix You”. “The whole thing was very different from our normal repertoire of Sacred Music which we sing in various venues around Pilar, - thanks to the versatility of the singers” explained Christine, “but it showed we could tackle a more contemporary programme, properly arranged.” Last year the choir was invited to perform in Italy.

admit, things don’t sound good! Why not talk to the other members privately and ask their opinions on the situation? At the end of the day, your goal is to improve your life, not complicate it even more. Many self help groups do charge a small fee but in this case, if that fee is so large that losing it is a problem, I’d say that it may be time to cut your losses and move on. Speak to your local council and ask if they have any information on the group concerned as well as asking for a list of other organisations in your area. If something untoward is going on here, they should be able to help you not only escape the clutches of this lot but also warn others of the potential danger. Like I said, talk to the other members first and get a feel for how they see things before you go wading in with all guns blaring. Good luck sweetheart. whether he likes you or not!

I know its easy to say and hard to do but unless you can summon up the courage to approach him and let him know you’re interested, you may as well give up altogether! Forget any hair brained schemes and just bite the bullet and say hello one day! It shouldn’t be too difficult but the longer you leave things like this, the harder it will get. You’ve got two choices, either you try the direct approach and see what happens or you carry on secretly writing letters and living in a fantasy world. Good luck to you.

SEXUALLY ASSAULTED When I was 14 I was sexually assaulted and it’s still bothering me now. My family never believed me that anything happened and so I have no one to talk to about my feelings. I suffer from panic attacks and am on antidepressants. How do I stop feeling like this? It’s ruining my life. Kate, 20 What you desperately need to do is to work through your feelings with a trained counsellor. They are around, even out here on the Costa Blanca. Anti depressants do have their uses but I’m convinced that they are just dished out far too readily these days. Go back to your doctor and explain that you need more than just tablets. The fact that this whole thing was pretty much brushed under the carpet leaves you carrying the burden alone so its hardly surprising that you’re finding it hard to cope. At this stage, I don’t think its worth battling to get your family to believe your story which is a real shame but there is help out there provided you’re willing to ask for it and accept it. Have read through the information and advice on www.aest.org.uk. The site is packed with other peoples stories as well as a wealth of useful resources to help you move your life forwards. I’ve heard stories like yours a thousand times over sweetheart and I know you can come through this, even on your own.

MAKE YOUR GARDEN THE GEM OF YOUR PALACE Although the range of outdoor furniture might be vast, tuning into quality and style is not always easy, given the amount of options available on the market. But, one company has been raising the standards since they opened their doors in April, 2012. Oudoor Muebles Exteriores, owned by Andrew Coe and Jan Henrik Bobel, fills a gap that they had identified in the market, a gap that was missing quality outdoor furniture at the right price. These days, when we think of strong, reliable household furniture, we may instantly think of a major chain of stores from Sweden, and the reputation that company and country has in quality and commitment to price and sustainability, that is why all stock at Oudoor Muebles Exteriores is imported from Sweden, and is not comparable to any other retailer in the area, as Outdoor Muebles is the only retailer stocking this exclusive brand of outdoor furniture. The trend speaks for itself, home really is where the heart is, a place where we enjoy quality time with our family and friends. So it is not surprising that so many people like to create a warm and cosy feeling on the outside of their home too. This is where synthetic rattan fits so perfectly into the picture, with its attractive design and natural colour scheme; it can turn an entire patio into an oasis during the hot summer months and into a cosy retreat during the cooler winter season. Whether you are looking for comfortable unique styles and shapes to fit any outdoor space, however large, small or awkward, with all frames weatherproof, stain proof, water repellent and with a good UV resistance, or dining sets, lounge groups, sun beds, umbrellas, cushions, hammocks, canopies and much more, the focus is always on quality, but also on new and exciting materials and colours.

Not only are that, for a limited period, there are exceptional offers on some of the showroom stock for immediate delivery, so they can make room for even more exciting new deliveries. If you visited The Leader Newspaper International Home and Lifestyle Expo which was held earlier this month at The Castillo de Conesa in San Miguel de Salinas, you may have already seen some of their products on show. There is no question that many people did see them and many of those were so impressed by what they found, they are now the proud owners of some quality manufactured garden features that Outdoor Muebles Exteriores provided. Their well stocked shop is based on the Mar Menor Boulevard, just in front of The Polaris World Mar Menor Golf Resort in Torre Pacheco, Near Los Alcazรกres. You can also visit their website at www.outdoorme.net, and browse through their range from the comfort of your home, pictureing yourself sat on a pice from their exclusive range.

HAIR AND BEAUTY ACADEMY AWARDS EVENING It was a night to rival The Oscars at The Hair and Beauty Academy in Los Dolses last week, as they held their Hairdressing Awards Evening in Conjuction with the Academy's 7th Anniversary. NVQ Level 2 Hairdressing Students took part in a Competition for the 'Best Upstyles' Category. Using their Creative skills, the students styled their model's hair in all sorts of styles including from the 1950's!

NVQ Level 3 students and their models

NVQ Level 2 students and their models

The winners for this category were: In 1st place Olivia McGinnell, 2nd Place Samantha Hallingan NVQ Level 3 Students took part in a Competition for the 'Best Themed Hair' Category, in which the Student created their own theme and used their own props and costumes for the event.

The winners for this category were: 1st Place Aimee Conway - Moulin Rouge, 2nd Place Megan Murray Peacock, 3rd Place Jessica Barnes - Alice in Wonderland The competition was a fantastic showcase of the Students' Creative Talents, and Initiatives. The Standards of the entries were second to none and as good as any UK competition. The Judges, Caroline and Ken from KSI Wholesalers, who also sponsored The Event along with Lara Mattin a former Level 3 Student all agreed that the Competition was so close that they had an extremely hard task in picking the winners in both categories. The Judges first observed the students working with their models,

asked the Students questions, and finally judged on the end result. The Students, who are all working in salons within the area, and are all students of The Hair and Beauty Academy then awaited the Results which were announced a little later that evening. In the seven years since The Hair and Beauty Academy opened over 150 students have passed through their premises. The Academy has been a huge success, delivering excellent training and results in the Hair and Beauty World. So much so that in November 2011 they moved to their New State of the Art Premises in The Los Dolses Commercial Centre, Los Dolses. The courses are available to anyone over the age of 16, for hairdressing, and now also their Nail Academy. The Hair and Beauty Academy also offer short courses in a range of Beauty Treatments. For any further information on any of their courses, telephone Sandra on 672 315 909, or pop into their premises on the first floor of the Los Dolses Commercial Centre, which is situated on the Road between La Zenia and Villamartin.

NEW HEALING ENERGIES FOR 2012 & BEYOND BY PENNY WING As we approach 21st December 2012, the beginning of a new spiritual consciousness, more and more people want to connect with Angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters. New healing energies are also being channelled through to us to help us open us spiritually. This really is an exciting time for us and the planet!

Magnified Healing Magnified Healing is a form of vibrational energy healing which was first introduced to the planet in 1983 by the Ascended Master Kwan Yin. Gisele King and Kathryn Anderson are the healers who originally channelled this energy and they have been

responsible for sharing it with many teachers throughout the world ever since. It is a form of hands on healing but, rather than channelling energy and directing it into the body of the receiver, with Magnified Healing® you create the energy and consequently become it. You are a co-creator. It is a very simple yet powerful form of healing; you can clear all your past negative karma, build your “light” body (also known as your spiritual body) and activate all the strands of your DNA. It could almost be described as more of an Ascension Initiation rather than a healing practice even though it does heal at all levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

After attending a two day workshop and then working with this energy on yourself for 11 consecutive days you are then qualified to TEACH it. Of course, if you don’t wish to teach it, you can still work with this energy to treat other people and yourself. It can also be used for healing the planet and for distance healing on people and animals.

Angelic Reiki Angelic Reiki is a relatively new energy healing treatment channelled by Kevin Core in 2002 and now taught all over the world. I had always wondered why I should become attuned for Angelic Reiki when I am a Usui Reiki Master who already connects so closely with angels but, I am so glad that I did! Angelic Reiki is slightly different from traditional Reiki; in Usui Reiki you channel energy from Source and direct it into the body of the receiver whereas, in Angelic Reiki, your energy merges with the energy of the Angels and you “hold the space” for them to do the work! The

feedback from people has been amazing and many of them have actually felt invisible hands working on their bodies and been given messages during the healing. You can also carry out past life healing which can be very beneficial for people who feel “stuck” and who may have past life issues influencing this life. This may all sound quite surreal but whilst all this is going on, all the receiver has to do is relax and enjoy being surrounded by beautiful, gentle, loving angelic energy....

Colours of Angels Attunements This is a lovely, gentle attunement which connects you to the energy of 7 Archangels and the coloured rays of energy on which they vibrate. It is a simple attunement which can be done in person or at a distance. It helps to deepen your connection with the Angelic kingdom if you connect with them already OR if you wish to start feeling Angelic energies around you this is also ideal. Once you have been attuned you can then pass the attunement onto your friends or family. For more info on these treatments or if you have any questions on Angels, Ascended Masters, Golden Atlantis, 2012 and beyond please contact Penny

A TASTE OF THE TRADITIONAL INDIA A taste of India is a traditional Indian restaurant situated at Via Park II CC, Playa Flamenca, just across the road from the new La Zenia Boulevard Shopping Centre. Opened in June 2011 by husband and wife team Happy and Deepi the restaurant offers a vast selection of Indian dishes as well as Indian style pizzas, steaks, burgers and of course a full take away menu. As well as the regular menu the restaurant also offers a special lunchtime menu for just €8.25 which is served between 1 and 3pm and an evening menu for just €10.00 including a free drink. My wife and I went along last Wednesday to try some of this wonderful food and to be honest we were not disappointed. We had vegetable samosa and chicken puri to start. The pastry and the filling was just wonderful, lightly spiced and delicious. The chicken puri was presented on a fluffy bread dough base, topped with chicken tikka, again just delicious. For our main course we chose chicken tikka shashlik and a chicken tikka saag. The shashlik was served on a sizzling skillet with peppers and onions, absolutely wonderful, and the chicken tikka saag with lovely rich spinach was served in a traditional Indian bowl. <<peas, pilau rice and garlic naan really complemented our meal. All was cooked to perfection by happy and his assistant and beautifully served by deepi. All dishes are available in mild, medium of hot varieties and if you are really brave ‘very hot’, so you can have your dish prepared exactly to your taste. We met happy and his assistant after our meal and we all chatted about their cooking experiences, having firt congratulated them, of course, on the quality of their food. I would honestly recommend that you visit ‘Taste of India’ and try the wonderful food for yourselves. Taste of India is open 7 days a week from 1-3pm and 5-12 midnight. You can reserve a table on 634 821 727. A big thankyou to Happy and Deepi for making us so welcome and above all, for the truly wonderful Indian food that they served. We look forward to seeing them again in the very near future.

What a lot of old rubbish! Visitors to smart, upmarket Meloneras and the agreeably tired Playa del Ingles, in Gran Canaria, often comment about how well the gardens, roundabouts and public facilities are maintained and that the area is mostly free of litter. In the main, this is true, and so it should be given the huge amount of tourists that visit the area each year, together with accompanying revenue. Basic cleanliness and tidy, litter free areas are the least that we should be offering our visitors. Sadly, all is not 'smelling of roses' in some of the outlying areas of the municipality of San Bartolome de Tirajana (often referred to as Maspalomas). Some of the outlying areas and villages are sadly becoming increasingly neglected, refuse collection

has been reduced, and rubbish allowed to run riot. One example is in the village of Castillo del Romeral, a pleasant village, which is mostly ignored by tourists. A central rubbish collection point adjacent to a very pleasant beach and an open air swimming pool has rarely been emptied in recent weeks, and a huge amount of litter including old sofas, cookers, garden furniture and builders’ rubble has been allowed to accumulate. Although the massive skip is compressed and emptied from time to time, it is not frequent enough, and the municipality appears to have given up on removing the larger items and the rubbish that has collected adjacent to it. The problem is exacerbated by local vagrants who gather, argue and fight for the honour of climbing into the skip and sorting through the rubbish in the forlorn hope of finding something useful to sell and yes, often to eat. Such desperation is a sign of very difficult times, yet many cannot be bothered to throw unwanted items back into the skip, preferring to strew the area with plastic bags, unwanted fruit, vegetables, left over meat and fish instead. As a result, vermin, cockroaches and flies are having a wonderful time, and the smell is appalling for local residents and visitors. Even the motor caravans that gather nearby each weekend now give the area a wide berth. Village locals do not help the situation

either. Building rubble, bottles and boxes, broken furniture, unwanted electrical items and broken furniture do not appear miraculously by themselves. On several occasions I have seen young children and dogs with cut hands, feet and paws from the shards of broken glass strewn nearby. Our nearest town of Vecindario in the neighbouring municipality of Santa Lucia appears to deal with the issue in a much more practical manner. Instead of open skips, vulnerable to the wind, vermin and vagrants, neat stainless steel hoppers are installed in the streets, complete with cavernous hoppers hidden beneath, which are regularly emptied by the municipality. It is impossible to dump large furniture, builders’ rubble and garden rubbish in these bins, which instead has to be taken elsewhere, presumably to dump in Castillo del Romeral or another forgotten village in a neighbouring municipality! Cutbacks, recession, holidays and staffing levels are just some of the excuses that I hear for this current lack of attention to basic refuse management. For

goodness sake, basic hygiene and security are the hallmarks of any civilised society, and it does not require a huge amount of funding to achieve a minimum standard. Let's make a start by cleaning up our own mess.

ABBEY ANGLING MATCH FISHING

CORNISH PRIDE ( LOS DOLSES )

This weeks match was fished on the Embalse del Argos at Calasparra in Murcia. The water levels have dropped a great deal, but are not yet as low as they were in 2006. One bright spark has decided to drive round to the far bank on the cold side and has got stuck up to the car´s axles. The results on the day were as follows: 1st Ian Dalzell with 41.74 kilos, 2nd Dave Hill with 12.92 kilos, 3rd Stuart Thompson with 10.48 kilos and in 4th place Dave Bacon with 9.16 kilos. Next week the club will fish Pedrera as the Embalse de Bellus has very little water in it. Tuesday September 25th is the next Quiz night , starting at 7.30pm. Cost of entry is 1€ per person and teams of 6 or less can compete. There will no longer be a buffet provided. On Saturday 6th October, the Club is holding a Race Night, and Bring and Buy Sale. Any items left will be auctioned. This will be held at the Club house. Please bring items for Sale at 7 o´clock, as the Racing will start at 7.30pm. Sausage, bacon, home made hamburger baps etc will be available from the bar. The Clubs home is at the Bar El Alto La Dolores on the N332 between Guardamar and La Mata, just off the roundabout near the Repsol garage. The next Club meeting is on Sunday 7th October.

By Terry Screen This week’s 5th round match of the Winter League also incorporated the first round of the R.T.N. Inter club team match, which was fished at Blanca on the 18th September. There was very little wind on the water and the fish not in a feeding mood on most of the pegs. With the exception of peg 5 on the brook mouth, which was fished by Doug Hornblow former Welsh International Angler which meant things were always going to be tough for the rest of us. 1st Doug (The Welsh Goldminer) Hornblow with16.680kg fishing pole and pellet 2nd Dave (Yours Truly) Hoare with 5.000kg fishing feeder and corn and whip and maggots for Bleak 3rd Terry (Swing Em) Screen with 4.800kg fishing whip and maggot for Bleak 166 fish caught this equates to 28.9grams per fish The result of the first round of the R.T.N. Team Match which is worked out on points was Rod & Reels the winners with 16points and Abbey Angling on 14 points. All details are available on our web site www.abbeyangling.com or the Match Secretary Terry Screen on 965 32 8368

180s - Terry Hagenaars, Graham Dunning (Rendezvous) The closure of Decades and Nicky´s bars along with the amalgamation of the two Pint Depot teams to form the All Stars has reduced the league numbers to 14. The Breeze Bar (San Miguel) entering the competition for the first time made up the 14th place. The league now enjoying new sponsor-

ship from Euronics (Blue Lagoon) Sunworld (Los Dolses) and existing support from Ferreteria (Rioja) means despite the reduced numbers the league is in a very healthy situation, organised by a committee once again unanimously elected. The sponsors will prove popular among participating players as all three have promised the best deals around, so if its electrical goods (Euronics) sales or property rentals (Sunworld) or anything for the DIY enthusiast (Ferreteria Rioja) the Euronics Dart League is the place to be. The boys and girls from the Breeze Bar had the unenviable task of visiting league champions Meerkats at their new venue The Hub (Villamartin) for their first taste of Euronics darts. And they put up a great show despite losing the match. The Meerkats showed no sign of their 3 month layoff since the June finals and banged in 17 scores of 100 or more. The first two legs were an illustration of what was to come from the champions. Graham Todd nailed D10 in the first leaving the visitors on 400+ points. The second was similar, the home side´s triple completing their 701 in 27 darts including 3 tons and a 66 out (S6,S20,D20) from Paul Durrant, the visitors still requiring 300+. The third leg was a little different with the visitor´s John Boden flexing his dart arm scoring 2x133 and D2. He repeated his form in the pairs with 120, 140 and D5 and although scoring a ton in his singles was defeated by John Eyre producing a fine 19 dart leg. However, he is not the only good player from the Breezers. Their captain Tony Beverley also throws a mean arrow or two, scores of 81,81,81,117 in his pairs just shows what the lads from San Miguel can do. Great team and dangerous. The team fancied to do well, the Hunks from Hattons, had the audacity to take 9 legs from Debbie Mackleston the league sponsor´s side. No favours in this league. Steph Simpson got the Hunks off to a flyer after his close season transfer from the Meerkats, on D16. The Mixtures levelled through Steph´s other half Tracey. The next two went the visitors way before Dave Wright D8 and Lorraine Cox pulled one back for the M&Ms. Hunk, Rod Buller won the first single albeit on D1 and the match heavily favoured the

visitors who went on to take the 9th leg and match. Tracey Simpson reduced the deficit in her singles on D7 and was promptly named Mixture of the match. A decent result for the Hunks who will certainly win far more than they lose. Around the league, the main contenders for the Meerkats crown all had convincing wins. Former champions and last year´s runners-up Rendezvous Bulls had a convincing home win against a reasonably strong Sporting Misfits. Ladies singles champion Amanda Skinner posted an excellent 140, but team mates Terry Hagenaars and Graham Dunning went one better to record the first maximums of the campaign. The Bulls must be favourites to take the title. Close behind are Gogarty´s with four new signings this season including Sunworld Masters competitors Mark and Jack Todd. Third place last season and with James Brown in the side there will be some great games to look forward to. Paul Easton won the seventh leg and match for the La Zenia outfit, with Jack Todd named as man of the match against a useful Breakaways. Madigans had the biggest win of the week, winning all but one of the available legs. Their two big signings Mark Farmer and Mick McGivern are not expected to play every week, but they have the fire power to contest all the major honours. Busters have also strengthened their side and will expect to improve on their fifth place last year. A convincing away win at PB´s shows they mean business this term and with Mark Filer a regular they will upset a few. My predictions for this term are the Bulls (champions) with Gogarty´s (second) and Gogarty´s winning the cup for the first time. I can´t see league champions Meerkats being higher than third and the new format Sunworld KO Cup doesn’t favour holders Meerkats either, however it all depends on the draw.

‘Mike Probert talks Golf Sponsored by Costa Blanca Green Fee Services Here on the Costa’s golf is one of the biggest leisure time activities for both tourists and resident alike and with this in mind we have secured the services of Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services to provide a weekly round up of local golfing events and topics and in conjunction with us at THE LEADER will provide discounted golf prices to all of our readers and run our golf competitions. Seasonal Golf Prices If you have not really felt the impact of the 13% increase in golf prices yet you certainly will at the end of September because the seasonal pricing strategy applied by most courses will see golf prices at their highest for the year for the months of October and November. Just why do the golf courses have such a pricing strategy and why don’t they just leave the prices the same all year around? Well I guess the answer is very simple in these autumn or early winter months travel and accommodation costs are lower and so the tourist golfer can ‘afford’ to pay more for their golf. Now we know that this is not really true for all golfers particularly from Western Europe BUT also remember that the economies in the Northern European Scandinavian countries are expensive and so even at what we consider high prices they still consider the prices attractive and cheap and so they flood to this part of Eastern Spain. The result is that the courses remain very busy and they believe that their pricing strategy is correct. The real loser in all of this is the resident golfer who has to hunt around for affordable golf during these high season months or not play at all. Unfortunately economically this is known as supply and demand and while some golfers are still prepared to pay high season prices the seasonal pricing strategy will continue to be applied by the courses. We at THE LEADER are committed to providing to our golfing readers affordable golf without the need to join a club or apply for a card but simply contact the number below to have instant access to discounted golf prices, many of which are exclusive to us.

IN THE BUNKER WITH MICK THE GRIP IF YOU have never heard of Came Down Golf Club, then you won’t be aware that this is where the Ryder Cup was first conceived. Set high on the Ridgeway above the County town of Dorchester, often buffeted by sea breezes, the club is steeped in history, particularly relating to Samuel Ryder and the trophy that bears his name. Records show that there was a nine hole course on the site in 1896, though it was believed golf had been played there much earlier. The mayor of Weymouth, inspired by the success of golf courses around Bournemouth, sought to establish an 18 hole course in his own area. Renowned golfer and course architect J.H. Taylor was appointed to the task, and he decided to extend the course up on the downs. The ‘Weymouth Dorchester and County Golf Club,’ as it was first known, opened to a fanfare in 1906, with an exhibition match between Taylor and another five times Open Champion: James Braid. In 1910 the club appointed Earnest Whitcombe as club professional, a very significant move, for shortly afterwards his mother Bessie was appointed Club Stewardess, and she brought along her other two sons Charles and Reginald. They stayed for seventeen glorious years.

All three brothers were brilliant golfers, a glance through the record books will reveal their achievements, particularly in national tournaments. They put the club on the map, and when Samuel Ryder, a Hertfordshire seed

BALLESTEROS NAME BACK ON TOP IN MADRID Well he really is a chip off the old block and if he goes on to achieve just 10% of the success enjoyed by his late father Javier Ballesteros will have a most successful golfing career. Last weekend the 22 year old took yet another important step toward qualifying for his European Tour Card with victory at the Madrid Open Championship in Retamares which he won by 4 strokes with rounds of 68-73-69. He finished with a total of 210, 6 under par, with former champion Manuel Ruiz Garcia in 2nd. Following the win Javier immediately dedicated his victory to his father who died in May 2011 at the age of 54 from complications of a cancerous brain tumour. "My father always told me that you have to play with what you got, and that's what I did. I thought about him a lot during the 18 holes and I dedicate this victory to him and my mother," he said. Ballesteros said "This is my first major victory and it has made me very excited. I got underway on the final day with a 3 shot advantage and I was always pretty confident that I could keep my nose in front. The key to victory has been my putting and not making too many mistakes. In three days I made 15 birdies and an eagle.” Despite his success yoiung Javier is keeping his feet firmly on the ground. “I am currently studying for a law degree at la Universidad Complutense and for the moment that is my main priority,” he said His father Seve Ballesteros won five major titles, recorded 50 victories on the European Tour and transformed European golf both on and off the links.

merchant and keen golfer who had made his fortune selling Penny Packet seeds, came to Dorset on holiday he played at the course with Earnest Whitcombe. Ryder became a country member, and while playing one day asked Earnest if the brothers ever played in international tournaments. Earnest told him they could rarely afford the unpaid time or travel costs. “The Americans come over backed by wealthy supporters,” he said, “not like the poor Britisher.” Ryder decided to try to remedy the situation by setting up a contest between Britain and America, and consulted his friend and personal golf tutor Abe Mitchell (whose photograph provided the image for the statue atop the Ryder Cup. ) He purchased a gold cup from Mappin and Webb, and the rest is history. In 1924 the club was renamed Came Down Golf Club, and re?designed by Harry Colt. The fame of the brothers attracted top players. Earnest won the News of the World Matchplay, and Reg won the British Open at Royal St. Georges in 1938. Charles won the British PGA Matchplay twice. All three brothers played in the 1935 Ryder Cup, Charles took part in six, from 1927 to 1937, and he captained the team four times. When the Ryder Cup comes around, it’s worth remembering Came Down golf club, one of the ‘Hidden Gems’ of Dorset, and the three brothers who played here all those years ago. (Not to mention a certain seed merchant from Hertfordshire.) DURING THE 2002 Ryder cup at the Belfry the TV cameras zoomed in on the Barbie doll ? like wives and girlfriends of the American players, then closed in on the players marking their golfballs. Peter Alliss explained to viewers unfamiliar with golf ritual that the players did this so they could tell them apart, then added: “I expect they’ll have to start doing something similar with their ladies.” (Nervous twitches from the U.S. Network.) JAVIER Ballesteros, son of the late great Seve, won the amateur Madrid Open on 16th September. The 22?year?old dedicated the win to his father, who died in May 2011 at the age of 54. Javier finished the three?round tournament at 6 under to win by four strokes. His Dad would have been proud of him. Wishing the European team the best of luck, until next time: Happy Golfing.

TORREGOLF.EU AT LA TORRE Friday 14th.saw our Club play this Jack Nicklaus course for the first time. Course in great condition with the fairways like carpet to walk on however comments from many members “should have bought our buckets and spades”, yes little did some know that when you play a JN course you are going to get plenty of bunkers and water!, subsequently this reflected in the scoring. One other thing that should be noted the course does have a problem with insufficient buggies and their reliability, do hope they rectify this in the future because it did cause some problems. Our normal Stableford competition resulted in prize money going to Category 1. 1st. Paul Hurrell 34 points, 2nd. Sue Owens 32 points, 3rd. Phil Brigham 30 points. Category 2. 1st. Peter Kerr 32 points, 2nd. Vince Lannon 30 points, 3rd.Tommy Boyle 29 points. Category 3. 1st. El Presidente 30 points, 2nd.Bill Wylie 28 points, 3rd. Roger Twigg 26 points. Nearest the pins, just 2 members taking the honours, Hole 3 & 11, Sue Owens. Hole 9 & 17, Alan Darby. Longest drive on Hole 10, went once again to the “THE HULK”, Paul Hurrell. Think we might have to ban that new Driver Paul. Our next outing is back to our home course El Plantio on Wednesday 3rd.October when we will attack not only the 9 hole course but then the 18 hole one and this will be followed by a visit to Altorreal on the 19th.October, so if you would like to come and join us and enjoy some of the cheapest golf on the Costa’s and hopefully also support our association with The Full Monte and CD Montesinos, cdmontesinos.com ), then contact davidwinder.torregolf@gmail.com or give him a call on 626 774 157.

HUB SPORTS BAR GOLF SOCIETY

LA MARINA GOLF SOCIETY

With Mar Menor undergoing greens maintenance the Hubbers switched their Sunday Society outing to the delights of Hacienda Riquelme. Usually a tricky track for the average golfer many of the Hubbers made light of the numerous traps and difficult pin positions. Four players made level handicap on 36pts and two were even better. The course however got its own back on the 15th Par 3 with none of the 20+ players finding the 188 yd green for the nearest the pin prize. Sean Smith had an excellent 20pt front line 9 as did Steve Morris, both returned 16pts for the back 9, but neither made the frame. Out of the three that did make the frame, Phil DeLacy was the most consistent, scoring 19pts on each 9. Making the frame on count back was Alan Harvey, having just the single one pointer on the Par 5, 11th, scoring 22pts with five 3pt holes. If you think that was bandit country, take a look at Vernon Cook´s front 9. Five 3 pointers and one 4 pointer for a ridiculous 25pts and a very painful cut to his over-generous handicap. At the other end of the scale three players couldn’t manage 20pts, one of which is contesting the Hub´s Grand Prix event Cam McHardy. Next outing is to Roda on the 26th September. Anyone wishing to play should enter their names at The Hub, Villamartin. Results - N.T.P: Hole 7 Vernon Cook, 10 (in two) Cam McHardy, Match: 3rd (36 pts) Alan Harvey (21 H´cap), 2nd (38 pts) Phil DeLacy (16), 1st (42 pts) Vernon Cook (28). The Picture shows the competition winner, Vernon Cook, with his wife. Paul Durrant

The storm clouds gathered as 32 players travelled to Bonalba for our 10.00.a.m. tee off but within an hour the sun came out and it got very hot. It’s a pity our treasurer listened to the wrong forecast as he was dressed in thick trousers with his waterproofs tucked safely in his bag ready for the downpour which never materialised, he was extremely hot by the time he came off the course. The scoring matched the weather, excellent. Here are the results; Best guest : Linda King 34 points Bronze division winner : Elspeth Craig 36 points Silver division winner : Mike Green 35 points Gold division winner: Alan Craig 34 points Nearest the pins: hole 4 Linda King, hole 8 Aidan Byrne, hole 14 Bill Mcgrandle Our next game is Captain’s day on Thursday 4th October if you fancy playing either as a member or guest see the match sheet on the noticeboard at La Marina Sports Complex. Also in October is our very popular bingo quiz on Tuesday 23rd at la marina sports complex at 7.30.p.m. if anyone would like to play with the society please give bill a ring on 679 007 756. We are a very friendly bunch of lads.

EL PLANTIO 2 GOLF SOCIETY

BENIJOFAR GOLF SOCIETY

Tuesday 18th September 2012 – Yellow Ball Back after a long summer in Holland with its usual moderate climate and away from the extremely hot months that the bravehearts endured here at the Costa Blanca. A big Thank You for John O’Brien who has been doing the reports during that long time and to Ray Housley for providing the necessary information to John when he couldn’t be there himself. Occasionally I could follow on internet what went on during the competition days. So, John and Ray, thanks again! Today with temperatures in the twenties and 15 players – including one visitor, Kenny Reddington, who became a member at the end of the day – we went out for a straightforward Stableford match. My luck to start at the 8th with Frank, Hans and Ray, where Ray immediately made his intentions clear with a birdie. Cheerfully he went from hole to hole, scoring each time, sometimes not even needing to put when he chipped the ball straight into the hole from way off the green and achieving an incredibly high score at the end. The rest of us lost some balls in the ponds or over the fences, the usual way of playing golf. Frank did well though with 33 to finish with.

Lorca 19-9-12 We made the long haul down to Lorca Golf resort for the September society outing and not knowing which weather forecast to believe. These varied from 30 degrees and sunny down to 25 degrees with thunder and lightning ! As it turned out , the first report was accurate and we played the course in perfect golf conditions with loads of sunshine and a nice breeze from time to time. Never having played the course before, it was a new experience for all the players and all of the feedback after the game seemed to be quite favourable on the days outing. The greens were perhaps slightly too long which slowed the putts down but played very true and was a good test of a players ability. The fairways were cut short but in excellent condition with no bare patches and a number of them were quite wide which gave everybody a good chance to hit them. Some of the tees needed a fairly good drive to clear ravines but overall, quite a nice course, well designed and well worth a visit. It’s a par 71 course with five par 3’s and four par fives. We played a nearest the pin on holes 4,8,10 and 12 and winners on these were Mike House, John Kemp, Graham Pattenden and Mike Bennett. In the best score for the par three competition, there were three players on eleven points but the winner by virtue of a lower handicap was Paul Whatley. Winner of the par five event was John Kemp with a total of ten points. In the main Stableford competition, there were some good scores submitted with over half of the players recording thirty points or above. In third place with thirty five points was John Morgan. Runner up on the day was Carol Firth with a very good score of thirty eight points. Nobody on the day could match the winner with Forty points scored by Nikki Ead which also earns her a nice little cut in handicap. We all returned to Sams bar in Quesada for food laid on by Maureen and then held the presentation. The football card was won again by Alec Aspen who seems to be having a lucky streak on these lately. October meeting is at Alenda on the 17th. For further information on the society, please contact John Kemp on

At the presentation the NTPs were for Ian Henderson on the 2nd – first shot of the day – and for Ray Housley on the 5th hole, another birdie and 2 for 4 from a few inches away. Third was Dave Swan, hcp 12 and a score of 34 while in second we saw Gordon Abba, hcp 9 and a score of 36, a perfect handicap protection. First and of course way ahead as I told you already was Ray Housley playing of 10 and a score of 41! Chainsaw will need some extra time for cutting, if he can find it given the festivities this weekend. Good luck for Charlie Stewart who will have to go to hospital on Wednesday and best wishes for Ian and his wife who will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend in Scotland. I really do admire that lady for coping all that time with him! Have a good time and enjoy your family. Next Tuesday’s competition 18th September at El Plantio will be a team game, the Yellow Ball this time. Put your name down by the Monday before and make sure to be there on Tuesday on time well before 09.30, not to upset the draw. Enjoy! Visitors are welcome, contact Ian Henderson, tel 966716616 or mobile 636116230.

THE SEVE BALLESTEROS FOUNDATION CHARITY DAY Saturday 15th September 2012 - Peraleja Golf. This event, organized by Alex McLennan was another fundraiser for this amazing charity which Alex has pledged to raise as much money as he can for this year. The match, a 4 ball Texas Scramble was played at Peraleja a course designed by Seve in his unique way. There was a fantastic turnout of players and the response by Juan Fran Martinez, Director of golf at Peraleja, who donated half of the green fees to the charity, who also provided the buggies at a very reasonable cost. After the game there was a prize giving ceremony and a meal for those able to stop and enjoy it. The prizes were donated by Peraleja and awarded by Juan Fran to the winners, the first prize being a weekend for 4 people in a luxury villa with golf included. The weather could not have been better for the middle of September, blue skies, warm temperatures and no wind. The handicaps had been worked out and given to all 4 balls at the beginning of the game and were quite fair across the board. The winning teams all came in with a gross under par scores and when their handicaps were taken off it gave them outstanding scores. In 1st place were the team of Donna and Nick Campbell with Lloyd and Mark on a Nett score of 52.3. In 2nd place were Alan and Allyson Masters, John Jubber and Alan Jones with 53.2 and 3rd place was the team of Brian Baker, Martin Ackers, Ron Roser and S. Auty on 54.1. There were 5 nearest the pin prizes which went to Richie Heaton, Andy Coe, Ron Roser, Chris Tudor and Charlie Jacobs. After the prize giving, thanks were given to Alex and Juan Fran for organizing another very successful tournament. The grand total for the charity on the day was 600 euros. N.B. Is this a coincidence? Whilst we were playing for the foundation, Seves´ 20yr old son Javier was playing his way into winning The Madrid Amateur Open. Is there another great golfing Ballesteros to come? Report and Photo by Bob Gallard. Photo shows the winning team with Alex and Juan Fran Martinez.

SABA SUMMER KNOCKOUT FINALS The Finals of the SABA Summer Knockout Competition, incorporating the playoff of the Men’s Four Wood Pairs Leagues, were held at Vistabella Bowls Club from Friday 14th to Monday 17th September. Some 270 bowlers entered the Knockout competitions covering 6 different disciplines. This meant that over 200 matches were played in the Preliminary and 1st rounds alone, this year’s competitions were sponsored by Indigo Car Hire who arrange car hire both in the UK and in Spain call 965 993 260 for a really competitive quote. Friday Morning saw the playoff of the Men’s Four Wood Pairs between Tom Spencer’s team from La Marina and Rod Payne’s team from Emerald Isle. Two of the three rinks looked as though they may go Emeralds Isles way in the early stages with Reg Foulks and Keith Jolliffe leading right up to the last end and John Jarvis and Rod Payne in front up until the 12th end

By Arthur Brown

but Peter Parsons and Dave Lewis finally caught Reg and Keith on the last end to record a 15 all draw and Andy Bartlett and Graham Norris produced a late surge to beat John and Rod 23 – 18. In the final Match despite an early lead for Chris Ayling and Dave Benson, Tom Spencer and Alan Castle took control from the 4th end onward and were never headed running out 19 -13 winners to give Tom Spencer’s team a 5 points to 1 victory. The presentation of the trophies was made immediately after this final and Tom and his team were joined by the Greenlands Ladies Team of Lynn Greenland, Jan Westall, Gail Watson, Sheila Stead. Diane Lawton and Angie Goodfellow who won the Ladies League. Friday afternoon saw the start of the Semi Finals of the Knockout Competition this covered the Mixed Pairs and the Mixed Triples disciplines. In the Mixed Trips Mel and Colin Highland plus Kevin Bell from San Luis proved too good for the experienced trio from San Miguel of Irene Ward, Stan North and Reg Cooper, winning 19 – 12. In the other game in this discipline Quesada’s Brian Trinder, Steve Hibberd and Sandra Heath took on Greenlands Jeannie Clements, Averil Toozer and Tom Hill, Sandra and co had a strong start and despite a late flourish from the Greenlands team they ran out 16 – 14 winners. The Mixed Pairs introduced June and Keith Jones to the proceedings and they proved too strong for Maggie Furness and Richard Lee a situation that was to continue with both of them over the weekend June and Keith won 19 – 10. Vistabella’s Jenny Bowman and Mike Regan took on El Rancho’s Marianne Holtham and Drew Gerrard, Jenny and Mike led most of the way and held off a late surge from the El Rancho pair to win 16 - 14 Saturday Morning was the turn of the Men’s Pairs and Ladies Pairs to complete their Semi Finals, the two Ladies Semi’s saw clear cut victories but

the Men’s games were much tighter affairs. In the Ladies Semi’s San Miguel’s Ann Eagle and Sabrina Marks last year’s holders came unstuck against Julie Cooper and Nina McKenzie of Mazarron who raced into a 16 - 3 lead and despite a recovery from Ann and Sabrina they won 22 – 15. The remaining semi saw Chris Parsons and June Jones complete a comfortable 21 – 10 victory over Beryl Regan and Jenny Bowman from the home club. In the Men’s Pairs we were treated to 2 nail-biters Brian Harman and Paul Parkes of Vistabella took on Phil Brigham and Ray Pollock now at San Luis. The game was tight throughout with Brian and Paul stealing it on the last end with 2 shots to record an 18 – 16 win. The other Men’s semi featured Keith Jones and Colin Lindgren against Jim Mulloy and Steve Cantley Keith and Colin took an early lead but were pegged back to 1 shot lead after 13 ends but a 4 on the 15th proved decisive to give Keith and Colin an 18 – 15 success. Saturday afternoon was the turn of the Singles, unfortunately Sally Cordell was unable to compete due to a health problem which meant that Sandra Heath had a walkover into the final. The other Ladies single semi was between June Jones and Di Lawton June continued her impressive form to win 21 – 9. In the Men’s Semi Finals Keith Jones was up against Quesada’s Jason Prokopowycz and although Jason was level at 11 all after 14 ends Keith proved to good winning 21 – 13. The other semi was an epic tussle Bill Pain took on Mal Hughes, after 20 ends they were level at 19 all but Bill took 2 on the next end to win 21 – 19. On to the Finals Sunday morning saw the final of the Mixed Trips and Mixed Pairs and the two Singles finals followed in the afternoon. In the Mixed Pairs June and Keith Jones once again were too strong for their opponents Jenny Bowman and Mike Regan recording a 25 – 10 victory. The Mixed Trips final was however a much tighter affair, Brian Trinder, Steve Hibberd and Sandra Heath were always in control but Mel Highland, Kevin Bell and Colin Highland chased them all the way to the finish Sandra and co winning 18 – 15. The Men’s singles final saw Keith Jones once again in commanding form and try as he might it was not to be Bill Pain’s day Keith winning 21 – 10. The Ladies final was a topsy-turvy affair, June Jones got off to strong start leading 10 -5 but then Sandra Heath took control to lead 16 -10 after 14 ends but with Sandra looking as if she was about to pick up another four June produced the shot of the game to take that end and then steamed to a 21 – 16 victory. Due to the fact that June and Keith were in so many disciplines the Men’s Pairs and Ladies Pairs finals were completed on Monday morning, Once again the June and Keith influence proved too strong for their respective opponents though this is not to undermine the contribution of their partners Colin Lindgren and Chris Parsons. In the Men’s Pairs Colin and Keith defeated Brian Harman and Paul Parkes 20 – 11 while June and Chris proved just too strong for Julie Cooper and Nina McKenzie winning 20 – 16. SABA Co-Ordinator Arthur Brown and his wife Barbara who together organised the event would like to thank our Umpires and Markers, the many spectators for their support, Vistabella’s helpers and CBBA Vice President John Albutt who presented the winners and Runners Up with their trophies and not least of all to everyone who entered the these competitions for making them such a success.

QUESADA BOWLS CLUB

LA SIESTA BOWLING CLUB

by Doug Beattie The new Saturday ‘Butchers Trips’, sponsored by ‘The Chop Shop’, got off to a good start with a very healthy turn-out who all enjoyed themselves. The winning rink, who all received a voucher for €5, was Nigel Baigent, Linda Armstrong and Martin Richardson. This competition is played over 18 ends and, along with the Wednesday ‘Riojateers’, is open to both members and non-members and the entry is only €1. Last Friday saw the conclusion of the annual ‘Terry & Di’ knockout tournament. This event has again produced some excellent bowling over the six days with the eventual winners by a single point Terry Jakeman and Dianne Riley (another Terry & Di!) receiving the magnificent trophy and a cash prize. The runners up, on shot difference, were Nigel Baigent and Peter Bradbury also received a cash prize. Good luck to all our members competing in the Valencian Championships.

By Norman Adcroft La Siesta's winter season got off to a shaky start with a 6-1 defeat to a strong San Luis team at San Luis. Luckily we had Sheila Chorley, John Horobin and Steve Pond playing as they alone salvaged La Siesta's reputation winning by one shot (18-17) on the last end. As to the rest of us the shot count of 101-158 says it all. We shall have to hope for better luck next week in the return game.

The winner with a massive shot difference of 24 was Liz Page, receiving the Trophy and a meal for two people. The next game is scheduled for 6th December. The Vera Moran competition was well supported by ourselves, La Siesta, Quesada, La Marina and San Miguel. The winning trio were Colin Lindgren, Liz Page and Maureen Jeffs, runners up - Jim & Renata Mulloy and John Zeller. Third prize went jointly to the Quesada team led by Jason Prokopowycz, Steve Hibberd and Sandra Heath and our team of Brian Donohoe, Joe & Mary Elliott. A big thanks to all concerned. I hear on the grapevine that the 'Only Girls Allowed' team have been in strict training for the forthcoming season and I'm told that they can get from the green to the bar and back to the green in less than 15 minutes personally, I don't believe it! Their first game was played on 18th September and their 4th annual match with San Miguel Ladies is scheduled for 1st October, 10-10.30 at San Miguel. All members are welcome to come and cheer them on. The current score is 2 - 1 to San Miguel so if our Girls' training is anything to go on - WATCH THIS SPACE, and don't blame the new shirts! Good Luck. Bill Allen.

SAN LUIS BOWLS REPORT – 21.9.12 In the semi-finals of the SABA knockout competitions, San Luis´s Trips team of Mel Highland, Kevin Bell and Colin Highland had an excellent game against San Miguel and came out the winners. Unfortunately, they narrowly lost to Quesada in the final. Mal Hughes played extremely well against Bill Pain in the semifinal of the Singles and was very unlucky to lose by 2 shots. Some of our new members were very successful. Ray Pollock and Ian Rogers (SL) played Paul Parkes (SL) and Brian Harman, with Paul and Brian winning the semi-final. They then lost to 2 more new San Luis Members, Colin Lindgren and Keith Jones. Keith and June Jones also won the Mixed Pairs and the Singles competitions. June, with Chris Parsons also won the Ladies Pairs. This all bodes well for San Luis in the future. After our excellent win against La Siesta we did not fare so well this week away to la Siesta, winning on 3 rinks and losing on 4. Congratulations to Frank Barclay, Sonny Cavanagh and Neil Morrison 24-16, Margaret Morrison, Joe Johnson and Joan Dullaway

SAILING ASSOCIATION MAR MENOR (SAMM) The first day of the SAMM Autumn Series was held on 16th September. The race took place from the CAR Sailing Centre at Los Narejos on the Mar Menor. It was a beautiful sunny morning but not much wind. The

forecast was that it would improve as the day progressed, which it did. There were nine boats competing including the new boat brought over by Mike Woods of Disability UK which he raced with Tony Jones. The Shoestring Group had three boats sailing, one was their new Mirror which had unmistakable bright red sails. The Balaton Group raced all their three boats and The Weta Group had their two Wetas racing. The wind was between 7 and 10 knots and in an East North Easterly direction. It was an exciting race and on the corrected times there was only three seconds between Weta 14 and the Martin, and only eight seconds between Sailfish Sorocco and Shoestring Uno. The top four places in the first race were:Place Boat Helm Crew First Shoestring Mirror Tug Wilson Peter Cadwell Second Weta 15 Edd Penning Janice Penning Third Weta 14 Brian Murray Linda Coates Fourth Martin Tony Jones Mike Woods

Second week and we have our first biggish result with Derek’s Virgo

By Ron Sheldon

Robins stepping up the pressure with this win over Ayliff’s Shellys “A” team. For the Robins, Pat and Derek won all their 3 games taking their team to the top spot, while for Shellys, disaster struck Alan and Pam who finished with no wins at all. Up at the Sportsman Graham’s “B” team just lost out in a close game against John’s Catorce Leopards. For Sportsman the best pair were Bruce and Graham with 2 wins, while 2 Catorce pairs scored 2 wins. At Catorce my Tavern Falcons team were unlucky to face John’s Catorce Lions on a night when hands of 16 were as common as mince pies at Christmas. For the Lions John and Carole were tops with 3 wins while for the Falcons Fred and Mel were again in a bit of form with 2 wins. Down at The Tavern Richard’s Ospreys came a close second to Dorothy’s Magpies from Izzys Bar who had 2 pairs with 2 wins while Sid and Jay finished best for the Falcons also with 2 wins. Also at The Tavern Russell’s Kestrels turned the tables on Val’s Virgo Voles in winning the last 3 games with 2 pairs on 2 wins while for the Voles Ron and Terry let the side down without a win. In Izzys Bar, Mary’s Peacocks had a solid win against Brian’s Jaguars from Ebony and Ivory with Mary’s 3 pairs all winning 2 games, while for the Jaguars Ken and Vanessa unusually capitulated without a win. At the new venue of Ebony and Ivory it was Keith’s Merlins teams’ turn to play at home facing up to Steve’s high flying “A” team from the Sportsman who took 2 of the last 3 games for a close win. For the Merlins Keith and June showed their mettle with 3 wins, while for the Sportsman 2 pairs had 2 wins. Over at La Siesta Bowls Margaret’s Sharks achieved a narrow win against Sue’s Kats from Catorce by having to win 1 of the last 3 games. For the Sharks 2 pairs achieved 2 wins each while for the Kats only Pat and Graham managed 2 wins. Quote of the week: In order to achieve success you don’t have to do extraordinary things, but do ordinary things extraordinary well.

21-16 and to Darren Johnson, Terry Hubball and Charlie Marigold 24-12. Thursday evening was the last of the Come and Go League and there were a few players in contention. The worthy winner was Sonny Cavanagh, and the runnerup was Ray PollockThank you to Sue Cooper for organising this very enjoyable competition during the summer months.

CASAS MANUEL PETANCA LADIES SINGLES TOURNAMENT Cooking, shopping and housework were put to one side as the ladies of the summer petanca league took to the pistes last Saturday at Restaurante El Altos de Dolores at La Mata for the Ladies Single Tournament. Of course the weather was gorgeous, with a welcome breeze. Games started slightly late - computers! then printers! but all got underway in the old fashioned way -- a man with a loud voice... All games were played in a very ladylike manner.. no disputes, no raised voices or opinions...but in a fun, competitive way. There were a few surprises in the first 3 games before lunch, but that made for an interesting 2nd half. After lunch the tension started to creep in - so many ladies having the same number of won games. There was no mistaking the winner having won all her 5 games, and then it was down to the computer ( now working ) to work out other places on a points scored system. 20 ladies took part and the top 5 were 1st Nancy Mcgrandles, 2nd Lynn Thompson, 3rd Marie Whitfield, 4th Pat Wenban, 5th June Sutton Congratulations to all the winners and everyone else who took part. Thanks go to Casas Manuel for sponsoring the trophies and to Avalon for the raffle prizes. Special thanks for Paul Harrop, Eddie Edwards, Linda Haymes, Nancy Mcgrandles and Paul King for all their hard work in organising a very enjoyable day. The photo shows, from left to right.

UNBEATEN ELCHE MARCH ON AT TOP SD HUESCA .....................0 ELCHE CF ........................0 The Illicitano league leaders had a long trip north to Aragon on Saturday evening, Huesca is not far from the French border. The home side had made a sound start in league 2A, their best in five seasons with eight points from five games. But not only were Elche unbeaten with their best start for 60 years, the Franjiverdes had won all five of their opening fixtures, maximum 15 points, 12 goals for and five against: game on! Elche were back to full strength with Carles Gil returned from injury, and the Illicitanos dominated the first half with several efforts going close, as the free kicks and corners spelt danger for Huesca but the storm was weathered. With Tariq as the lone Huesca striker up front the home attack was rarely troubling the composed Illicitano defence. An injury to captain Generelo in the 39th minute meant supersub Mantecon’s entrance once again this season, to play competently for an hour. Xumetra blazed over just before half time but 0 – 0 it stayed. In the second half both teams attempted to put more effort into their attacks, but it was Elche who finished much the stronger with a penalty refused (not like last week!) when Carles Gil was suspiciously hauled down trying to convert a Fidel cross, and then finally Coro’s 90th minute point-blank header was pushed onto and over the bar by Luis Garcia. So a point shared keeps Elche unbeaten at the top of the table, and Huesca grateful; they were largely outplayed by the better team. This is no easy division and Elche’s closest rivals both also drew, secondplaced Villarreal 2 – 2 away to Las Palmas, and neighbours Almeria also drawing 2 - 2 away at lowly newcomers Ponferradina, which dropped them to fourth. The pressure on beleaguered Hercules coach Juan Mandia grows as the Alicantinos were emphatically beaten 0 - 3 at home by unpredictable Barcelona ‘B’, who move up to third with the win, behind Elche and Villarreal. Hercules were one of the pre-season favourites for promotion, but now have one win and six defeats, second bottom – ooh er!

Elche midfielder Fidel powers his way past Huesca’s Tariq

BY JOHN MCGREGOR

Next weekend Elche entertain the other ‘H’ – Huelva, or Recreativo as they’re known, kick-off Saturday evening at 8.00 pm. The visitors are from the other end of Spain to Huesca, near the Portugese border, doing ok with ten points from six games. But that hides the fact they don’t travel well: three home wins and one away draw. Let’s hope that bodes well for Elche, last time at home the Franjiverdes were very lucky beating Sporting Gijon 2 -1 to maintain their 100% record. Mucho Elche!

NINE BRAVE REDS TAKE POINTS AT ALTEA UD ALTEA 0 HORADADA CF 1 Horadada outsmarted the opposition and the referee who seemed to be working against them throughout the game. This was the worst referring performance seen at a football match in many years, even the Altea supporters agreed. So many yellow cards issued and two reds, mostly to Horadada players, only two to Altea, in a game that was not played in bad spirits at all. The problems started after two minutes when Campillo passed the ball down the right hand flank to Ensa who put a beautiful cross to the middle of the goal which Vardan headed straight in. After the restart the game went from end to end with Horadada showing the better play but once again, unable to score. Half way through this period the ref started his antics with a lot of whistle blowing and bookings for the most innocent of fouls for which a warning would have been far more appropriate. Within 10 mins from the restart Robles received a yellow and 13 mins into this half Altea had their only shot, which went wide.

Antonio was substituted for Vardan after twenty minutes and he immediately fouled the Altea centre forward who appeared to lash out a kick, red card. Two minutes later, Alberto received a second yellow followed by a red, Horadada down to nine players. From there on it was a game of containment with Horadada trying to use up time by clearing the ball upfield and making substitutions, some of the players were showing how hard it is with nine men, but the defence held firm with only one up front, and even the extra seven minutes added by the ref didn’t deter them, they stood strong and deserved the points. A great display by U D Horadada, and there really should be some way these referees could be reported so they do not spoil games for the paying public, some of whom travel miles to see a match in which an idiot of a man in black in the middle of the park ruins everything.

STALEMATE AS JOSE MANUEL SAVES TORRY BLUSHES FC TORREVIEJA...2 JOVE ESPANOL.... 2 Last week’s disappointing performance at home to Muro was seemingly reflected in the poor crowd with barely 300 spectators through the turnstyle in Sunday’s fixture against Jove. And those that had come along were not too enamoured when Torry fell a goal behind with less than 10 mins on the clock, an accurate return pass to Alvero who slid the ball under the advancing keeper. Fortunately the home side hit back within 5 mins when Jorge hammered home from the spot after Inarejos had been brought down in the box. This was Torrevieja’s first conversion in 4 attempts and was hit with such force that it nearly took the visiting keeper into the back of the net along with the ball. Both sides were making chances and Cuco Ros should have done better when through on goal midway through the half but his tame attempt was easily saved. Rubio shaved the woodwork on the half hour for Jove before Torry’s Avel just failed to reach the ball with the goal at his mercy. Half time 1-1. The 2nd period followed much the same pattern with neither side able to dominate possession. A Jose Alvara goal was ruled offside for the visitors on 56 mins and almost from the restart Torry’s Burguillos headed over the bar from close range, probably the miss of the game, when scoring was almost certainly the easier option. Dani had a great close range effort saved as the game entered the final quarter and we had reason to think that Torry could well go on and win but as the ball was cleared upfield Jove sub Guerro hit a super effort from 25yds which gave Manolo no chance in the Torry goal. The home side raised their game as they went in search of the equaliser and they were rewarded in the 84th minute when Jose Manuel tucked away a Luis Carlos effort that rebounded off the Jove post.With neither side doing enough to win, the 2-2 scoreline was probably a fair reflection of how the game went. Next week away to Denia.

TORRY’S NEW EVENTS TEAM WANTS YOU ALTHOUGH FC Torrevieja are one of the smallest teams in the Spanish league, when it comes to ambition, they are one of the biggest. Manager Casimiro Torres believes that this season’s team is one that will fight for promotion and the fan’s are enjoying the style of attacking football that has been missing for a couple of years at the Vicente Garcia. Away from the football field, the club also has put together an ambitious development plan and are are on the lookout for volunteers to help with the development of the future plans for the club. One of the first things that is required for the development of FC Torrevieja is an events team. So if you would like to become more involved with the club, they are seeking like minded souls to ensure that their planned events run smoothly and professionally. They has a five year plan to raise the profile of the club and In the next couple of years are planning such events as a ‘Friends of FC Torrevieja’ weekend conference, in Torrevieja,a return of Legends Football matches, such as when Liverpool FC were here a few seasons ago, a new golf society, Ladies football tournaments and development involving British and Irish teams, ‘An Evening With’ former footballing stars, Concerts and events plus the development of a youth academy at the club. For these events, the club need to put together a special task force and if you’ like to put some of your spare time to good use they require, in no particular order, and certainly not limited to these positions; Stage Manager, Stage Crew, Audio Technician, Ticket Takers, Support Staff, Like Minds, Great Ideas, Performers, Entertainers, Dancers, Musicians, Golfers, Ten Pin Bowlers, Pitch and Putters, Drivers, Note Takers, Team Leaders and just those with no particular skill, or so they may think, who are willing to help out. Not all of the events are entertainment based, such as concerts and fun days. The first Club Development event is a themed Halloween Variety Show, taking place on October 31st, 2012, at 8.30pm in Torrevieja’s Municipal Theatre. Thrilling the audience will be Footwork Dance with some guest appearances from local broadcasters doing their party pieces!
