I

Editor Jane Hutchinson

n July 2003, my sister, Julie, was murdered by her husband, Jamie Ramage, in the family home in Balwyn that she had left five weeks before. After killing her, he buried her in the bush. He was sentenced to 11 years’ jail but served less than eight; he was released last year. I helped his family to stop him returning to Balwyn. I don’t ever want to see or hear from him again. I am very proud of my sister’s children [son and daughter]; they are both doing very well and she would have been very proud of them. But I don’t like to talk too much about them as it is still very difficult for them. Because of what happened to Julie, I campaign on the issue of domestic violence whenever I can. I am communications co-ordinator with the Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service Victoria and each year I help with White Ribbon’s Walk Against Violence through the Melbourne CBD [on November 23, from Melbourne Town Hall]. Walking with a group of likeminded people is really empowering and sends strong messages to the community. I didn’t attend the recent Reclaim the Night and Jill Meagher marches, but they are similar issues; family violence and any violence against women comes from certain belief values around rigid gender roles and some men’s sense of entitlement. If we want to end violence against women we need to challenge how women are viewed, and get the good men to no longer be bystanders. Holding a march is symbolic as it brings together those working at the

NOVEMBER 21, 2012

coalface with those who want to create change and end family violence. At Camberwell I will talk about how family violence exists in all communities and how hard it is for women to talk about it, let alone be courageous enough to leave an abusive relationship.

Before my sister was murdered, she didn’t know she had been the victim of family violence and neither did I. Perhaps if we had known we would have done things differently and she might still be alive. I want to speak about the issue so others have the choice to stay safe.

A White Ribbon Walk and forum is on Thursday, November 22, at 10.45am, Camberwell Civic Centre, 8 Inglesby Road. Jane Ashton will speak before the march to Camberwell Junction and back at noon. A free barbecue will follow.

Don’t heed the call: police warn drivers over phones

PHONE PLEA: Sergeant Michael Free

THE Stonnington Highway Patrol is pleading with drivers to let their mobile phones ring out after figures revealed more than 55,000 Victorian drivers were booked for using their phones at the wheel last year. Sergeant Michael Free heads a team of 11 Stonnington Highway Patrol officers and says mobile phone usage while driving has to stop.

The current penalty for using your phone while driving is $282 with three demerit points. “There is a misconception that hands-free devices eliminate the danger,’’ Mr Free said. ‘‘In actual fact, any distraction is still a serious hazard. People seem to think that answering their phone is much more important than

focussing on the road.” More than 168,000 fines have been issued for driving while using a mobile over the past three years across Victoria. Adam Power, a driving instructor in Melbourne’s south east for Driving School Melbourne, said there are few more dangerous things that people can do while driving than using

a phone. “You put your friends and your family at risk every second you look away from the road,” he said. “Our multitasking skills are already stretched when you get behind the wheel. Adding another distraction such as friends, radio, mobile phones, adds another second to your reaction time.” EDDIE MORTON

Bell rings again for past pupils BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@fairfaxmedia.com.au

THE Past Pupils Association of Presentation College will next week celebrate their centenary with a gala dinner at Caulfield Racecourse. The alumni celebration comes just months before the Windsor school, known as PCW, celebrates its 140th year next year. Paul Kelly and his sister Mary Jo Kelly will perform the school song, which they wrote, at the November 30 gathering. The dinner will raise money for scholarships to be passed on to future college students, the first time the school has asked the past pupils to raise funds. Among the hundreds of college alumni are federal Member for Chisholm Anna Burke MP, journalist Jana Wendt and country and pop singer Diana Trask.

Long-time members of the Past Pupils Association, Andree Moloney (class of 1956), Marie Curlis (class of 1950) and Maureen Pontin (class of 1968), have been helping to track down past students of the school for the dinner. They said because of changed surnames through marriage, it has been tricky finding people. However, it has also proved to be ‘‘a grapevine’’ with many former students helping them find others. While it may have taken Andree, Marie and Maureen a few extra years to part ways with PCW, they said the 139-year-old Catholic school’s essence had not changed since their first day in class. Anyone interested in attending the centenary dinner should contact Presentation College on 8517 2777, visit www.pcw.vic.edu.au or email lfalkenstein@pcw.vic.edu.au for more details.

VOX POP DOES CHADSTONE NEED ITS OWN TRAIN STATION? WOULD YOU USE IT IF THERE WAS A STATION? ELLEN SCULLY, Toorak Absolutely. A lot more people would access the shopping centre and it would make travelling for parents with children a lot easier. Having to catch multiple buses with children can be tricky. It would also make Chadstone a more appealing place for not only shopping but also eating.

LIZZY DEN DULK, Ashburton I think it would be useful but it really would depend on where the train went. It would be most convenient for people going to and from the city. If I was coming from home I would still drive.

CHRIS MILES, Malvern Yes. It would encourage people to use public transport and make getting here a lot less difficult. I would consider using public transport more often if there was a train station.

The troublesome mix of train lines, tram lines, freeway entrances and exits has made the Burke Road intersection the longest-standing top 10 Redspot. Six of Stonnington’s seven most notorious Redspots were the level crossings on Burke Road, Glenferrie Road, Toorak Road, Tooronga Road and High Street. Seventh was the intersection of Burke and Malvern roads in Glen Iris, close to the Burke Road level crossing. While Ms O’Dwyer commended the work of the state government on its level crossing safety efforts, she said the state and federal government needed to give the proposal serious consideration. Public transport minister Terry Mulder said the government was open to discussing the development of Victoria’s rail network, but the proposal requested funds that were not available.

THE Federal member for Higgins, Kelly O’Dwyer, has supported a bid by a consortium of corporate heavyweights to build four underground stations and a rail connection to Chadstone shopping centre. The $2 billion plan, called Project Double Fault, proposes a fourkilometre underground rail network connecting the Glen Waverley line to the Dandenong line via a new station at Chadstone shopping centre. The consortium, which includes NAB, KPMG and Grimshaw Architects, has vowed to pay most of the bill, leaving $700 million to the state government. The proposal came less than a week after the state government gave final approval to Chadstone’s $500 million redevelopment that will add two floors of retail space, a

cinema and hotel, and two weeks after a truck collided with a train at a Dandenong level crossing. Heyington, Kooyong, Tooronga and Gardiner stations would also be turned into subway stations as part of the plan, which is aimed at tackling Melbourne’s congestion and level crossing hazards. Ms O’Dwyer said community demand for a train line to Chadstone and the abolishment of level crossings had been constant since she took office three years ago. Among 20,000 residents recently surveyed by the Liberal MP on community safety issues, more than 3000 had level crossing and transport safety concerns. RACV’s 2011-12 Redspot Survey revealed each of the four stations as areas of community concern, with Gardiner station, on Burke Road, coming fifth on the state’s list of top 10 Redspots.

PERSONALITY and work ethic are the main selection criteria talent scouts are looking for in the lead-up to the National Institute of Circus Arts’ annual showcase. NICA’s yearly event gives graduating students a final chance to display their skills on a variety of apparatus in front of teachers, friends, family and the industry. According to show director Meredith Kitchen, the process is a nervous one for the students as the industry is so competitive and there are limited places available at some of these production companies. “Students are well aware that talent scouts for some of the country’s best shows attend the showcase, and in many cases their performance on the night has led to some amazing careers,” she says. This year, audiences can expect a diverse mix of skills and personalities that will include acrobats, jugglers, clowns and aerialists. Among the talent scouts will be La Soiree creative director Brett Haylock. The company’s fusion of cabaret, circus and burlesque has won over audiences around the world and is always looking for more talent to join its team. Mr Haylock said NICA’s annual showcase provided a snapshot of the young talent coming through the school. He will be looking for spirit, first and foremost.

to connect and even “flirt” with the audience that will win his attention. “I am not looking for one particular skills set or apparatus,’’ he said. ‘‘If it is something special, then there is a chance that we could incorporate it into our show.” Yaron Lifschitz, artistic director at Circa, an artistically inspired Australian circus company, is casting for the company’s next show. He said the NICA showcase always provided an exciting look into the future of circus. “We will be looking for people who are genuine, have an authentic view of circus and their skills, and express who they are in their performance,” he said. Circa is a ground-based circus with most of its acts being of the acrobatic and juggling variety, however Mr Lifschitz said there would be no restriction on the skills sets he appraised. “The most important skill to have in circus is a capacity to work hard and be smart about your work,’’ he said. ‘‘Do that, and the students will catch my eye.” Performances run from November 22 to December 1. Tickets are available online at nica.com.au

NERVES OF STEEL: Suzie Steel holds her ground

SMALL business owners in Prahran will have access to operating tips and mentoring sessions when the state government’s Mobile Business Centre visits next week. The centre provides free assistance to help get a business started, and offers advice on boosting existing small businesses. The centre will be located outside Prahran Town Hall on Monday, November 26, from 10am. Chapel Street Precinct Association spokesman Oskar Cebergs said the success of the area as a tourism and entertainment hub was dependent on small businesses. There are 15,000 small businesses in the Chapel Street precinct. Mr Cebergs said the Mobile Business Centre would provide valuable information on services to business owners. MLA for Prahran Clem Newton Brown said the service was beneficial to operators who are too busy to seek other avenues of information or guidance. “They won’t have to travel far to access business mentors,” he said. The centre visited more than 70 locations across Victoria last year, providing more than 750 mentoring sessions. To book a mentoring session, visit: business.vic.gov.au or call 13 22 15.

STREET LEVEL

WINDSOR A family, including two children, slept while their home in The Avenue was burgled and their car stolen. Police believe the offender entered an unlocked side door around 5.30am on November 7, stole a handbag and car keys from the kitchen, then took a 2006 Toyota Corolla from the driveway. The car remains unrecovered. Residents are urged to lock all doors and windows before retiring or leaving the house, and to activate alarms and sensor lights if ďŹ tted. Driveway and side gates should also be locked.

REPORT CRIME call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000

MONASH FREEWAY Stonnington Highway Patrol impounded a Mercedes after detecting the driver speeding at 128km/h in an 80km/h zone on Sunday, November 11. Police were patrolling the freeway when a member of the public called police communications about a Mercedes travelling at high speed. The C63 Mercedes has been impounded for 30 days and the driver could lose his licence for 12 months.

MALVERN A taxi driver and a police detective were allegedly assaulted on November 6. After the taxi driver collected a passenger from the Malvern area, a dispute erupted over the passenger smoking in the taxi. The driver, who was racially and verbally abused and feared for his safety, went to Prahran police station with the passenger still in the taxi. In the front car park, the passenger allegedly assaulted the driver and dragged him to the ground. An off-duty detective leaving the station intervened and arrested the male, who resisted arrest. The man was eventually brought under control, interviewed and charged via summons.

Full-time mayor for ‘fresh’ team NEW councillor Matthew Koce is Stonnington’s first ‘‘full-time’’ mayor. Elected unopposed on November 14, Cr Koce said he wanted to commit fully to leading a ‘‘fresh, new council’’. ‘‘You can’t do that and work full-time’’ he told RL. The 40-year-old will take leave from his position in marketing and corporate communications for a national firm during his year-long term as mayor, for which he receives an allowance of $85,741 plus super and a car. Councillors receive $26,843 plus super. The new council was sworn in on November 8. Cr Koce thanked fellow councillors for the confidence they had placed in him. ‘‘We have six new councillors, combined with three past-serving councillors. That mix delivers an important combination of fresh new energy and ideas as well as experi-

ence,’’ he said. ‘‘We have mothers and fathers, youth and maturity. We come from different professions and walks of life, but we all, in my view, passionately share a desire to serve the community in which we live.’’ Cr Koce spoke about his key priorities as mayor, including advocating for the council to have a greater role in planning, the urgent need for more open space for parks, sportsgrounds and playgrounds, addressing graffiti, and advocacy on local infrastructure. Cr Koce has lived in Malvern for six years with his wife and daughter. He is a Liberal party member but ran as an independent in the council election. He stood as a Liberal candidate for eastern metropolitan in the 2006 state elections. For council updates, visit stonningtonreviewlocal.com.au.

Camberwell’s ban on retail expansion set to return to VCAT BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

THE battle to redevelop Camberwell’s Target and Safeway building will return to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in February, with Boroondara council set to defend its ban on expanding retail space in the building.

VCAT last week granted the owner a permit to modify the building, including covering the multistorey car park and adding 16 specialty shops and a third large retailer, with no increase in height. But the development can go ahead only with a change to an agreement made in 1995 under the Planning and Environment Act that

restricts retail to the current size of the supermarket and the department store. RL understands VCAT has the power to force the council to change the agreement. The proposal has been mired in controversy since 2006, when residents raised fears of disruption to the popular Sunday market, loss of car

parking and possible harm to trade at the nearby fresh food market and Burke Road shops. Rumours that owner Sixty-Fifth Eternity would seek to add a residential tower were dismissed by a source close to the case as ‘‘a complete furphy’’. After VCAT granted a permit last year, the council appealed to the

Overhaul for disability support STEPHEN MCKENZIE

BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

THE Bayside community is backing a campaign to overhaul disability support systems that could improve the lives of thousands of people. Disability groups, families and carers have joined with Bayside Medicare Local to support the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The Australian government committed $1 billion to support the first stage of the scheme, which will be launched next year to help 10,000 people with significant disabilities. Bayside Medicare Local’s chief executive Elizabeth Deveny said one in five residents in the area covering Port Phillip, Bayside, Stonnington, Glen Eira and Kingston were affected by a disability. Malvern East mum Leza Daniels said the scheme was needed to help people access available services. Mrs Daniels and her husband were born with forms of dwarfism, as was their son, Max, 6, and daughter Meg, 10. Max, born six weeks premature, also had respiratory and feeding problems. As a toddler, he suffered a curvature of the spine and was in a full-body cast for seven months.

BRIGHTER OUTLOOK: Leza Daniels, with children Meg and Max, needed support for health issues “He was 3 1 ⁄ 2 months old and I came home from hospital being a nurse,’’ Mrs Daniels said. ‘‘It is exhausting trying to navigate your way through a system while coming to terms with all the things

that have had a huge impact on your life. We felt lost and helpless at times.’’ After being contacted by another mother with details of childhood intervention programs, Mrs Daniels accessed support and advice on ther-

apies to help Max and the family. “I can see people not getting the services that are available to them because the information is not out there, so I hope the NDIS changes that.”

Step out for women BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bridget.fitzgerald@fairfaxmedia.com.au

WALKING against domestic violence is an opportunity to stand up on behalf of victims, says the head of a Kingstonbased support service. Staff from the Emerge group will join the Walk Against Family Violence on November 23. The walk has been organised by anti-domestic violence campaign White Ribbon and the Melbourne Walk Against Family Violence committee. Emerge supports women and children who have experienced domestic violence in Melbourne’s southern region, including Kingston, Bayside, Glen Eira, and Port Phillip. Manager Rosemary Barca said the walk was an opportunity to honour women and raise awareness. “There are many myths and misunderstandings surrounding family violence,’’ she said. ‘‘But the statistics speak for themselves.” The walk, from Melbourne Town Hall to Federation Square, starts at 2.30pm on Friday, November 23.

Help and better health at hand for the homeless A COMMUNITY health service is reaching out to Melbourne’s vulnerable citizens to try to reduce homelessness. The rate of homelessness in Australia has risen 8 per cent, according to the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates following the 2011 Census. There were 105,237 people in Australia classified as 8 STONNINGTON REVIEW LOCAL

homeless on the Census night last year, up from 89,728 in 2006.

necting them with housing and other services. The organisation, which is based in St Kilda, South Melbourne and Prahran, found 74 per cent of people it had helped lived in Port Phillip. One-third were ‘‘sleeping rough’’ and one-third were living in boarding houses or rooming houses. CEO of the community health ser-

vice, Damian Ferrie, said his team actively sought out vulnerable people in parks, squats and rooming houses and developed a trusting relationship with them. ‘‘They then work together to link people into housing, health care and other necessary services,” Mr Ferrie said. LISA HIGGINSON

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ BIN IT In respect to the stories ‘‘Residents call for transparency on who should tackle trash’’ and ‘‘Law changes put higher price on littering’’, (RL, November 7) I feel there is a need for more rubbish bins and recycling collection bins in many domains, including shopping strips, and residential education should be part of any campaign too. Diane Redman-Heath / Malvern East ■ DEVIL’S WORK The ABC’s mini-series Devil’s Dust has once again highlighted the horrific toll wrought on the Australian public by the companies behind asbestos. The fact we’re now seeing people as young as 30 and 40 diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases shows this is not an issue of the past, with many believing asbestos will have its biggest impact on the nation’s health in coming years. It is not just asbestos workers who were and will be affected. So

too were their wives, who often washed the deadly dust out of their husband’s clothes or the children who hugged them when they returned home from work each day. We also know potentially thousands of Australians will become ill after being exposed to asbestos dust during home renovation projects and, with an estimated one-in-three Australian homes still containing asbestos, more work needs to be done to raise awareness of the dangers. Anyone contemplating do-ityourself renovations should seek professional advice about the presence of asbestos, particularly for houses built in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

■ PELL MELL George Pell is apparently concerned about protecting the institution or organisation ahead of the

individuals and beliefs it professes to stand for, which is common in many organisations. But humans must come first. Perhaps Big George should read the words of Christ in the first four books of the New Testament for guidance. John Dobinson / North Balwyn

■ TRULY SHOCKING Well thank you very much RL. That image of the neo-naff ’80s outfits on page 23 has bought back some truly horrendous memories (What’s on, RL, November 14). Tonight, I think I’ll cry myself to sleep thinking about shoulder pads while listening to Spandau Ballet. This will be confusing for my family, but it will all be worth it if it washes away the image of hideously patterned knitted jumpers, fingerless gloves and yellow eye shadow. The fact that they seem to be dancing only makes it more offensive. There is nothing to celebrate here. Reformed bogan / via email

JUMPING FOR JOY Bounce baron ANTONY MORELL likes to keep his options up in the air

T

he ability to bounce from one location to another is a definite asset for the understated partowner of the latest Melbourne hotspot, the trampoline heaven called Bounce. That’s because Antony Morell, while handling the rush at the three-month-old Bounce, also co-owns Spudbar with a network of 12 food outlets across Melbourne and Western Australia, Hobba Eatery & Bar in Prahran, and a software business in the city, and is father to a one-year-old and a four-year-old. ‘‘We think everyone wants to jump around like a five-year-old bouncing on their parents’ bed.This is like a giant version of a parents’ bed,’’ Morell says as we look down from the upstairs cafe of Bounce

at the bodies leaping in time to the highly charged music that fills the cavernous space, formerly a computer factory.‘‘It’s an adrenalin rush with a soft landing. Look, everybody is smiling or laughing.’’ Bounce, near Tooronga station in Glen Iris, is a hit with all ages for its 100 interconnected trampolines, two dodgeball courts, free-jumping arena, a performance area and 500 square metres of foam pits to leap into with abandon. Mt Buller’s Team Buller Riders practise their tricks and flips here, there’s a mini-Bounce program for three to five-year-olds, and it teems with school groups and kids’ parties. Recently it hosted movie nights for its ski-lovers. Jeremy Jones’

Further, a snowboarding adventure with the maxim ‘‘you always grow if there are new challenges for you’’, is screening this particular night in the grassy central space of Bounce. ‘‘We look at marketplaces that have a gap and aim to provide something that elevates the spirit in some way or gives the customer goosebumps,’’ says Morell, who is undoubtedly thinking of expanding Bounce because of its power to attract crowds from all areas of Melbourne. ‘‘It’s mainly about imagination, either about doing something new like Bounce because it’s exciting for its newness, or doing something old in a better way.’’ The something old is the Spudbar network, which Morell, 40, and his partner in most business ventures, Simon McNamara, bought three years ago as ‘‘an uninspiring, largely vegetarian place’’ and ‘‘re-imagined it from the ground up’’. ‘‘Franchise doesn’t have to mean same same boring, and fast food does not need to mean junk food,’’ he declares. He brought in Circa and Pope Joan chef Matt Wilkinson as an equity partner to redo the menu and make it a healthy foodie-style fast-food outlet.‘‘We think really great-tasting real food at cheap-eat prices is what a lot of people want – fast, fresh, filling and delicious.’’ Morell’s eateries are as successful as the fully Australian Bounce, which enjoys sold-out sessions most days. Birthday parties, of which there have already been hundreds, are booked well into next year There’s a cap of 120 people per hour to maximise safety and enjoyment – that would make it more than 1500 bouncers on a Saturday alone. Morell, hailed by his Bounce staff whom I spoke to as ‘‘so inspiring’’, with ‘‘great energy’’ and who ‘‘can make anything awesome’’, was in the US looking at a similar model with one of the Sydney-based partners when the team locked onto a bold vision for Bounce. It combines circus and elite sports training methods with ideas borrowed from other fun pastimes such as skate parks and jumping castles to provide an uplifting experience for any age. On the walls and staff T-shirts are catchy phrases, concocted by Morell, such as ‘‘The harder you fall

UPLIFTING: Antony Morell (left) and on the Wall at Bounce (top centre) the higher you bounce’’. The fringe benefits from jumping on trampolines are cardiovascular fitness, improved bone density, muscle toning and stress relief, among others. ‘‘We hear from lots of parents and schools that there’s not enough jumping around and climbing trees and going out on a limb for young people these days,’’ says Morell, who enjoyed a tree-climbing childhood in Melbourne and at his grandparents’ farm in Echuca, where he also rode horses, leapt into the river and fished for yabbies. His father ran a PR company, and ‘‘mum created an amazing environment for us to grow up in’’. Morell’s life of adventure now includes similar rough-and-tumble at the small farm he has in the Otways, and he is a passionate skier who uses Bounce time to tone his muscles and work on the spatial awareness he needs on the slopes. ‘‘The places I create end up looking like my house or my farm, or a combination of the two.They are warm, and have a bit of soul to them,’’ he says.‘‘I love creating environments that make people excited about coming out.’’ He answers his ringing phone at

this point, declares he has to race off to Hobba, and takes off with a high-five and “see you there’’. It’s the launch of dinners after a year of establishing Hobba as a breakfast and lunch institution at the softly lit, rustic warehouse in Malvern Road. Morell trained in marketing and commerce and worked at a UK bank for a while, then was involved in property and construction, marketing and strategy consulting. The hard yards have paid off – he now creates his own thing using the soulful, relaxed aesthetic he loves. He has woken up early with his son and daughter today, about 5.30am, to fit it all in, including lessons from one of his young circus staff in running up the Wall at Bounce.‘‘Now I’m hosting my family for dinner,’’ says Morell, the second eldest of four children in the Morell family, as his younger sister Belinda walks in, in shiny silver-sequined top, to celebrate with her brother at Hobba.‘‘Oh, I love him,’’ she says. So does the rest of Melbourne, it seems, for putting a spring in everyone’s step. HARBANT GILL

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

wo acrobats in an elephant suit are walking a tightrope strung high above a ferris wheel overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Below, crowds gather to watch sideshow attractions ranging from contortionists and trick cyclists to daring Swedish performer Miss Marie Thelin, who sets herself alight before diving off a15-metre platform into a small pool. The year is 1912. Australia’s population is approaching five million, the Prime Minister is Andrew Fisher and an unsinkable ship is about to set sail from Southampton for New York. It’s also the year that a team of engineers travelled from the United States to Australia to build the first of seven Luna Parks around the country. Only one has survived in its original glory. Five of the originals closed permanently and Adelaide’s was shipped to Sydney after the Depression. Next month, Luna Park in Melbourne celebrates its centenary having opened its gates on December 13, 1912. Built on a wedge of swampy St Kilda foreshore, long before diversions such as televisionand Xbox came on the scene, it was modelled on the original Luna Park in New York’s Coney Island, and attracted more than 22,000 patrons on opening night. For sixpence, visitors to Melbourne’s Luna Park were treated to circus-like attractions that would raise eyebrows at WorkSafe today. In its heyday, as catchcries of ‘‘Roll-up! Roll- up!’’ competed with the resident brass band, children received carpet burns as they flung themselves down slides on hessian bags, romantics posed for photographs in front of an animated Waning Moon, and patriots hurled crockery at an effigy of German Emperor Kaiser Wilhelm. Scallywags who wrought havoc at the park were kicked out, literally, receiving a boot to the bottom as they bent over to exit through a small door at the back of the Giggle Palace. Early attractions included English conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton as well as 12-year-

old Baby Ben who, long before the nation’s obesity epidemic, was crowned the “world’s fattest boy”, weighing in at 159 kilograms. “It was a little bit carnival back then,” says Mary Stuart, Luna Park’s executive director.“There were all sorts of very quaint, fun forms of live entertainment. And some which were politically incorrect.” Despite the decline in live entertainment over the years, the park still attracts about 800,000 visitors a year.These days, there are 18 rides and attractions, including old favourites such as the Ghost Train and Dodgem Cars, and a selection of contemporary rides such as the Spider, Enterprise and Pharaoh’s Curse. Stuart joined Luna Park in 2005, but her link goes back much further. Her earliest Luna Park memory is of riding the Rotor, an upright rotating barrel, which closed in 1977 after 26 years. She recalls getting off and throwing up. Incidents involving children, junk food and spinning rides are known by staff as a “code rainbow”, and occur with “monotonous regularity”. A former teacher and union official, Stuart says running Luna Park was never on her to-do list. But when trucking magnate Lindsay Fox and partner Virtual Communities Limited bought it for a reported $8 million in 2005, she accepted an offer to come on board.“The brief was to find out what the problems were, and fix it,” she says.“It needed, and it still does need, a lot of investment.” The park has undergone major works since Stuart’s tenure began seven years ago. Lindsay Fox says preserving its heritage is important for future generations.“When we got involved it had been through a period where it hadn’t had a lot of love. We wanted to make sure it lasts another 100 years.” “Luna Park has been good to me,” says Fox, who recalls sneaking

UP TO SCRATCH: “There’s been a lot of blood, sweat and tears,’’ says maintenance manager Mark Harrison


JUST FOR FUN Everyone’s invited to join in the celebrations as Luna Park marks its big birthday: ■ December 10: Luna Park says a big thank you to local residents and businesses with free rides for all in the evening. ■ December 13: Catch Daryl Braithwaite, Anthony Callea and aerial acrobats Strange Fruit on the Centenary Community Day as the park marks its official 100th birthday. Visit lunapark.com. au by December 2 to enter the ballot for free tickets. ■ From December 14 Spend balmy nights strolling the park with ice-cream in hand or hop on the Great Scenic Railway to take in the romantic night views. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights all summer. Kicks off with performances by Ainslie Wills and other local acts. ■ December 15 and 16: Girls, throw on your flapper dresses, and fellas, tie on your suspenders as the big mouth becomes a time machine on the Back to 1912 weekend. There’ll be vintage stands, staff in costume, horses and carts, and Dixeland jazz. Be sure to visit the revived Tea Terrace. Saturday, 11am – 11pm, and Sunday, 11am – 8pm.

on to rides for free as a boy 67 years ago.“I have rich memories of growing up in this place. I took my six kids there and they take their kids there now.” In the longer term Fox says he’d like to make Luna Park part of a charitable trust that returns money to the community. He also plans to talk to the state government about incorporating Luna Park in a larger development of the St Kilda foreshore, similar to Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens, which has theatres, concert halls, and an aquarium in an 8.5 hectare park.“There’s no reason why you couldn’t do something like that here.”

But keeping heritage alive doesn’t come cheap. The park has a staff of 200, including specialists such as architects and engineers. The iconic Mr Moon Face at the entrance had a few facelifts before it was finally replaced a few years ago. The Ghost Train, built in the 1930s, needs regular maintenance. Millions of dollars have been spent on the heritage-listed

carousel. Built in 1913, the 68 hand-carved wooden horses and two chariots were painstakingly stripped back and repainted in accordance with their original plans, obtained on a trip to the Philadelphia Toboggan Company headquarters in Pennsylvania a decade ago. Like many attractions at Luna Park, the merry-go-round is a functioning museum piece as much as it is a form of entertainment. Last year, part of the bridge under the park’s best-known ride – and the world’s oldest continually operating wooden roller coaster – the Great Scenic Railway, was completely rebuilt. Luna Park’s longest-serving employee, maintenance manager Mark Harrison, compares the rollercoaster to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. “There’s been a lot of blood, sweat and tears over that thing,” says Harrison, who started out 22 years ago as a ride operator on the Disco Swing, now known as the G-Force.“It’ll never be finished. There’s always something to do to

keep it up to scratch.” Still considered a feat in engineering, the rollercoaster’s track is perched atop 322 posts and held together with 12,800 screws. Unlike modern coasters, it operates on a cable car system where the train is winched to the highest peak before being released to the forces of gravity. For 100 years, highly skilled brakemen (and, these days, brakewomen) have ensured the safety of thrill-seeking patrons – is good news considering the train can still reach speeds of 60 kilometres an hour. Although the park lost it’s beloved Giggle Palace to a fire in the ’80s and no longer employs staff to scare visitors riding the Ghost Train, it has maintained a worldwide cult following. When film director Tim Burton visited Melbourne a couple of years ago and was asked by the state government what he wanted to do during his trip, visiting Luna Park was the one and only destination on his list.

Big mouth moments Six of Luna Park’s best known fans share their memories of the St Kilda icon. By Matthew Eade

ANTHONY CALLEA, singer

KATE CEBERANO, singer

I remember driving past as a kid with my brother and sister in the back seat, fighting, but when we’d get close to Luna Park we’d stop because we wanted to come in! I think as a kid I had more guts to go on rides because now I’m usually the person at the bottom holding the bags and eating a bucket of hot chips.

Luna Park to me means recreation, St Kilda style. I’ve spent many idle days riding the Scenic Railway, pashing on the Ghost Train and bringing up my lunch after the Rotor – heaven and hell in one place! Happy birthday old girl, you don’t look a day over 90!

MICHAEL GUDINSKI, music promoter I’ve been called a big mouth, but this is the real big mouth. I remember the Big Dipper, but my greatest memories are with my wife on the Scenic Railway. In fact, the legendary Skyhooks Horror Movie clip was filmed here. It certainly put Mushroom Records on the map. It’s great that they’ve restored the park and are keeping it moving. Kylie would love the carousel, she loves carousels.

SPENCER McLAREN, actor I have always been a huge fan of rollercoasters, so when I moved to Melbourne at 14 I was so excited to discover we had one in our own backyard. Luna Park became a staple through my teen years as the place to just “hang” and annoy the adults. It was also the place to make yourself sick after going round and round and round on all the rides.

LINDSAY FOX, trucking magnate and Luna Park co-owner I’ve been coming to Luna Park for 67 years. As a kid I’d come in through the gates and there’d be the whiff of waffles, then we’d stop at the milkbar for the best milkshakes in town. From there we’d head around the back of the Giggle Palace, where you could sneak in for free and then we’d head to the Big Dipper. Then there were the River Caves where more young men felt the breasts of more young women than just about any other place. Luna Park has been good to me.

MARY STUART, Luna Park executive director When I was younger my grandma lived on Canterbury Road and being able to come to Luna Park was a huge treat. I remember after some fairy floss and a ride on the Rotor I did actually throw up, but I managed to get off the ride first!

Members of the public can enter a ballot to win free admission and access to all rides at Luna Park on December 13. The community day, marking the park’s centenary, includes entertainment by Daryl Braithwaite and Anthony Callea. The ballot closes on December 2. Visit lunapark.com.au to register. NOVEMBER 21, 2012

FROM STAGE TO SCREEN Kew ďŹ lmmaker OLIVIA PENISTON-BIRD’S daughter isn’t the only one to have fallen in love with calisthenics

A

DANCE AND DRAMA LOVER: Olivia Penison-Bird with daughter Nova, 4.

s a mother of two young daughters, director and producer Olivia PenistonBird wasn’t looking for a new ďŹ lm project last year. She had her hands full with baby Luna and was searching for an activity for Nova, then 3, who loved dance and drama. Turns out she found both, just around the corner from her Kew home. Peniston-Bird booked Nova into calisthenics classes at Regent Calisthenics Club, which rehearses in a Kew East church hall. “It was as they described it: a mixture of ballet, gymnastics and theatre, which is pretty unusual, and I was immediately taken by it,â€? Peniston-Bird says. “Some of the parents started telling me about the history of the Regent Club and it became apparent very quickly that there was a huge cross-generational story,

Peniston-Bird’s resume is impressive.A filmmaker for many years, she did a five-year stint in London and worked as an assistant director on big movies, including a couple with Daniel Craig before he was James Bond. On her return to Melbourne, Peniston-Bird decided she wanted to work on her own films. “I was pretty much starting again,” she says.“No one is going to pay you to direct until you have developed that skill, so you have to go out there and start making things. As a director you have to find and create your own projects.” Making Calisthenics: A Love Story through their production company Thirdrow Films has been a labour of love for Peniston-Bird

and Karikari.The project has been mostly self-funded apart from an online fundraising campaign last month, which raised $15,000. Peniston-Bird says the hardest part is juggling between filming and her young family. She is delighted to have met the Synnott/ Feltham family and believes they will resonate with audiences. “You have to fall in love with your subjects because without that absolute determination that you’re going to make it, no matter what, films just don’t get made,” she says. “You need a vision and then the determination and persistence just to continue, even if you get knocked back.” To follow the progress of Calisthenics: A Love Story, visit facebook.com/ CalisthenicsALoveStory JOANNE SIM jsim@mmpgroup.com.au

It’s a stunning view all the way, especially in spring. Towering gum trees one minute and skyscrapers the next, babbling brooks and waterfalls and even the odd bit of creekside street art all make for a uniquely Melbourne ride. It’s mostly flat and very forgiving to beginners and even kids if they are fit and confident on a bike. The ride can be done in two to three hours but is much more enjoyable if you ride at your own pace and even stop for a coffee, a beer or some shopping in the city along the way.

I understand, because dance is not in the curriculum in Australia but hopefully that’s changing. In 2014 or maybe next year we’re having

our first preschool matinee.” The Barcelona-born choreographer’s interest in educating the public is indicative of his egalitarian attitude to an art form that can seem exclusive. It is this fresh approach, along with his enthusiasm for exploring new ideas, that has gained the dance company a new following. Ticket sales have jumped nearly 50 per cent since Bonachela came on board in 2009. His latest production, 2 One Another, uses poetry and narration as a backdrop to the physical expression of the dance world. The piece was largely experimental, defined only by Bonachela’s determination to base

it on the 16 dancers who feature in the work.‘‘I decided that all the vocabulary, the material, and the content had to come from within the four walls of the studio,’’ he says. Bonachela invited poet Samuel Webster to observe the dancers absorbed in various exercises, one of which involved pairs in a “silent conversation that was driven through movement”. “Sam’s mission was to watch that conversation and interpret it,” Bonachela says.“He wrote the most wonderful, amazing, evocative and rich text about things that he saw.” This sparked a kind of dialogue between the poet and the performers, with the dancers

re-interpreting the words into movement and also recording parts of the poetry which composer Nick Wales then “wove into the music to give it texture”. The resulting work is about “16 individuals who have different personalities, different ways of moving, different ways of approaching things” – but at the same time, Bonachela emphasises that dance doesn’t have to be about anything. He says much of the joy comes from letting the imagination run wild when watching a performance. “The great and positive thing is that so many people have stopped me after the SDC shows,” he says.

“I remember this guy going, ‘Mate, I’ve never been to a dance show, my girlfriend brought me and I didn’t know what it was about but I loved it’, and I was like, ‘that’s great’, because it’s the best thing when you are just free to imagine.” LEEYONG SOO lsoo@mmpgroup.com.au

Lives: Camberwell. Worth the price of admission? No, it was a decent set-up but it became convoluted and self-indulgent. The writer really fell back on cheap humour, which is what I like usually but it just didn’t work here. Out of 10: 4 Favourite film: Mulholland Drive.

Lives: Northcote. Worth the price of admission? No, it was pretty disappointing. It started out quite good but the shock value was unsettling. Misjudged comedy and the characters couldn’t make the humour work. Out of 10: 3 Favourite film: Dog Day Afternoon.

Lives: East Malvern. Worth the price of admission? It would be worth a Cheap Tuesday admission. The movie has had a lot of criticism and I see where people are coming from. However, I did enjoy it. I was sucked in and I enjoyed the mean-spirited characters. Out of 10: 7 Favourite film: The Royal Tenenbaums.

BEHIND THE COUNTER Shane Sipolis and partner Shane Riddel opened Botanics two months ago in a historic terrace building. A florist for 16 years, Sipolis opened his first shop when he was 19 in Queensland.After selling the business five years later, he has been itching to do his own thing again and adores working in the natural light of his new store.

the store entirely from recycled materials, including shelves made from wooden tool chests and grape boxes from the 1970s. Sipolis says his terrariums made from old glass chemical instruments are selling well.There’s also timber boxes of strawberries, vertical gardens, outdoor art, steel planter boxes and, of course, fresh flowers.

WHO’S BUYING WHAT’S IN STORE

Sipolis says he is in “customer heaven’’ with browsers during the week and gardeners on weekends who know they can get something special without the 30-minute drive to the nearest Bunnings.“There is a very strong community feel around here and all the neighbours came in and welcomed us to the area.’’ JOANNE SIM

Difficult to define, Botanics is a florist/nursery with a huge array of homewares, toys and gourmet treats.The entire front of the deceptively large store is filled with gorgeous finds like Aquiessence candles ($10-$48), sweet Lily and George baby toys, handmade cards and hampers featuring Macedon Ranges preserves.

LOCAL LIVES

AMY DICKINSON 30.6.1988 - 2.10.2012 KOOYONG Lawn Tennis Club member Amy Dickinson, 24, died in a tragic canoeing accident on October 2. Dickinson was described as “the sunshine of our lives� by her loving family – father Campbell, mother Helen, sister Laura and their partners, and her

grandparents – as well as her devoted boyfriend, Nick. At the October 14 service at Camberwell Grammar School for boys, her family requested donations go to the Amy Dickinson Memorial Trust for the beneďŹ t of educating children. Devastated friends and family paid tribute to a special young woman who dreamed of helping children. Dickinson, a keen Hawthorn supporter and a former SES cadet, had been canoeing with her mother on the Murray River near Biggara Bridge, east of Albury. Her canoe hit a rapid near a tangled tree and capsized. Dickinson’s lifejacket was ripped off by the force of the water and she failed to surface. NSW and Victorian police and SES volunteers scoured the area and found her body two days later, about 100 metres from where she was last seen. Dickinson had been camping with her boyfriend, her mother, and friends.

DECENT EXPOSURE

S

tonnington’s first Literary Festival, [untitled], kicked off at Prahran Library last Thursday night with nibbles, jazz and a rib-tickling monologue from author Shane Moloney. Expect the festival to become an annual, cherished addition to a city celebrated for its love of reading.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT In between American Songbook tunes, Fly Right Trio double bassist Clandy Ross caught up on some Exploitation poster art. Lachlann Carter runs 100 Story, which empowers disadvantaged youth through writing workshops. He also balances cupcakes on his head. Richard Land watches proceedings with son Tim. Land’s daughter, Bronte, won a festival prize in the 5-12-year-old category. Rosalind McClintock was named after the hero of Shakepeare’s As You Like It. This gives her pretty good cred at a Literary Festival. Susan Bower lapped up Shane Moloney’s every quirky word. German Rupert Spielvogel greets Jodie Kimmersley, close mate of his new girlfriend, for the first time. “I’ve heard so much about you,” she said. We trust it’s all good, Rupert!

A childhood spent on a rural property on the south coast of NSW led to a fascination with cars.

AUSTRALIAN + INTERNATIONAL FINE ART AND ABORIGINAL ART AUCTIONS Deutscher and Hackett are combining their November Fine Art and Aboriginal Art Auctions in a contemporary art finale. Recent inclusions have increased the hype surrounding the auction house’s final selloff this year. A piece from

Howard Arkley’s Venice Biennale exhibition, The Home Show, has been added to the line-up, as have significant works by Dale Frank, Ben Quilty, Ken Whisson, Rick Amor and Philip Wolfhagen, giving the auction a decidely contemporary feel.There are two exceptional Jeffrey Smart works, as well as masterpieces by Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Kutuwulumi Purawarrumpatu (Kitty Kantilla) and Rover Thomas, among others. November 28, 7pm at Deutscher and Hackett, 105 Commercial Road, South Yarra. Details: call 9865 6333.

Creativity first took expression for Samantha Everton in hairstyles and cuts in a Queensland hair salon during her 20s.The Brisbane-based artist swapped the scissors for a Mayima RB camera later in life, and now carries a pen and sketchpad for when those light-bulb moments strike. Her ideas are nutted out on a storyboard and are constructed over many months before they become the elaborately staged, highly theatrical images we see hanging on gallery walls.

Locals find it tough in Open

Moran’s the man for Malvern ARI HATZIS

A DOMINANT all-round game from American pitcher Pat Moran fired Malvern to a convincing mid-week win over Melbourne in the Vic Summer League baseball. Moran pitched all seven innings and batted in three runs as the Braves came from behind to take the points 7-4. The night started slowly for Malvern, with Moran conceding two runs in the opening inning as the Demons showed why they are firmly entrenched in the top four. But from there, and despite failing to score in the first two innings, Malvern was in complete control. Moran strangled Melbourne’s hitters, keeping the Demons off base and the game under control until the decisive fifth inning. After clawing back one run in the third, Malvern blew the game open with five in the fifth, thanks again to Moran. With two runners on base, he stepped to the plate and thumped a long home run to bring in all three Braves. And by the time he was back on the mound they had added two more to lead 6-2. Melbourne snatched two in the

AWAY SHE GOES: Malvern’s Pat Moran belts the game-changing three-run homer in the fifth inning seventh but Malvern scored one more of their own before the two hours were up to clinch the win. With two hits, three runs batted in and seven tight pitching innings, Moran was a clear man of the match. But with the Braves outhitting

Melbourne 12-5, he got plenty of support at the plate. Malvern coach Adam Burton was full of praise for his team against a strong Demons line-up. ‘‘We played the game right, that was the most pleasing thing,’’ he

said. ‘‘Rather than missing our opportunities or leaving guys on base we moved guys around and just did the fundamentals well. ‘‘It was probably our best game for the season.’’ EWEN McRAE

IT WAS an indifferent week for Melbourne Bowling Club’s entrants at the Vic Open, with no silverware but plenty of finals places to hang their hats on. Todd Simmons and Dylan Fisher made the semi finals of the men’s pairs, losing on the penultimate day to Lalor’s Craig McCarron and Bob Watt. Ben Fearn also made the semi finals of the men’s pairs with Altona’s Bryce Young, but they also lost, this time to eventual champions Lee Schraner and Aaron Wilson. Schraner was a clear man of the tournament, taking out the men’s pairs and mixed pairs, runner-up in the men’s singles and a quarter finalist in the triples. Fearn also made the knockout stages of the men’s singles but could not progress any further. Fisher teamed up with Lalor’s Carla Odgers in the mixed pairs but they could not break into the finals. The Open was held over five days at 18 different venues, with the finals at Shepparton Park.

ARI HATZIS

Chargers expect big things from AFL draft BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au AFTER a successful year that delivered premiership glory and AllAustralian jumpers, Oakleigh Chargers are hoping for one of their most successful AFL drafts this week. Two of the Chargers’ brightest prospects – key position player Kristian Jaksch and medium forward Jackson Macrae – are both expected to go in the top 10 in the draft on the Gold Coast. And Chargers regional manager Mark Smart is particularly proud of how far Jason Ashby has developed in the past 12 months. ‘‘He’s had a terrific year. We thought the best way to develop him was as a running half-back and he’s been able to grow into that role nicely,’’ Smart said. At 187cm, Ashby could play several roles, which Smart said will help him at the draft. ‘‘He’s very driven, I could see him

becoming a running f lank-type player and if he gets a bit stronger he can go back into the midfield,’’ Smart said. ‘‘He’s got terrific endurance so he’s certainly suited to AFL. ‘‘Jaksch can play back and forward, so that certainly helps his draftability and we think he’s certainly first round and possibly top 10. ‘‘And Jackson [Macrae] has had a terrific year. He’s progressed through all the levels and performed really well, which is a credit to him.’’ In a year that’s light-on for key position players, Jaksch is a particularly enticing prospect for AFL clubs as he also took on leadership responsibilities with the Chargers this year. ‘‘That sort of leadership comes quite naturally to Kristian,’’ Smart said. ‘‘He’s a great role model and when he has something to say the group certainly takes notice.’’ With the changing rules at AFL level, versatile ruckmen have become invaluable and Smart believes 203cm Chris Prowse will

be closely looked at by several clubs despite missing 10 weeks of the 2012 season with a foot injury. ‘‘I thought his grand final for us was fantastic and I hope he gets an opportunity,’’ Smart said. ‘‘He covers the ground really well and he’s quite athletic for a big man. ‘‘He can go forward and kick goals and he can provide defensive pressure and they’re all areas that are important for an AFL ruckman.’’ Smart also nominated two other Chargers as potential draftees. ‘‘Ryan Exon had an outstanding year. He certainly has the versatility to play as a midfielder and a running back,’’ he said. ‘‘And Sam Collins played on all the key forwards for us this year and did a terrific job.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

MATCH REPORT

BRIEFS ■ BEATEN IN A CLOSE ONE Melbourne slipped to its third loss of the premier bowls season, going down to Clayton in a tight one. Both teams won two rinks, so it came down to the margin of victory on each rink to decide the match, with Clayton narrowly prevailing 14-81 to 4-78.

Spinners wrap up win for Prahran BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au SPIN twins Bryce McGain and Dan Salpietro baffled Geelong’s batsmen to bowl Prahran to a big Premier Cricket win on Saturday. After the True Blues had posted a mammoth 6/368 on the first day, the pair took seven wickets between them to roll the home side for 242 and give Prahran victory by 126 runs. With Geelong’s star batsman, Aaron Finch, unavailable because of

Bushrangers duty, Geelong resumed on the back foot at 1/16 and it soon got worse as Rhys Adams nabbed Luke Muller for 11. Geelong got one slice of luck when Prahran opening bowler Steve Seymour tore his hamstring in his seventh over of the day. But that forced the True Blues to turn to spin early in the day, and 40-year-old McGain came on earlier than intended. And he showed all the guile that took him to the his one Test in 2009, picking up 5-59 from 24 overs.

He was well supported through the middle overs by Salpietro, who toiled away with his off breaks to finish with 2-46 off 19.5 overs, while paceman Adams picked up 3-39 from 15. Liam Murphy had a day out at first slip, with four catches, as Prahran never let Geelong into the contest. Prahran coach Andrew Walton said he was confused by some of Geelong’s batting structures. “They had to replace Finch but rather than sending out your next best player batter from the first XI,

they sent out the replacement second XI player,” he said. “They were 6/108 at tea, and then they had two of their better players batting at seven and eight.” Despite the scores, Walton also believes Geelong had the better of the batting conditions. “Last week there was a lot more in it for the seam bowlers. It was dead flat this week,” he said. Prahran now travel to Barooga for country week, with T20s against Northcote and North Melbourne. Scoreboard, Page 30

ARI HATZIS

Wanderers’ batting test MELBOURNE Wanderers will have to turn around some indifferent batting form to notch a second win of the Quiney Shield season against Brighton Union on Saturday. Wanderers did what they’ve been doing all season and knocked over Brighton for a small total of 122, before losing a late wicket to finish the day at 1/8. It all started well for Wanderers, with none of the Brighton top order scoring more than 16 as the visitors strangled them with tight bowling and great fielding. Brett Northage scored 27 late runs for the home side as Wanderers dropped off the intensity, but Brighton never really built momentum. Wanderers’ Phil Toyne finished with 3-24 from 13 overs, while Shaun Hawking, Shayne Armstead and Manny Lagman each grabbed two wickets. It will be a long week for Matt Dolby after he was out for a duck as Wanderers got their chase off to a shaky start. Wanderers captain Luke Hesketh said he was hopeful rather than confident his team could chase down the runs. “It’s a low score and I’d like to think we can but after the last couple of weeks we’ll see,’’ he said. ‘‘We just have to spend time at the crease and it should happen.”

■ CATHOLICS HIT BACK Toorak Prahran is on the backfoot already in pursuit of Mount Waverley Catholics’ 196 in Menzies Shield cricket. Hugo Trotter took four wickets for Toorak Prahran, but the home side lost 2/15 off eight overs late in the day to hand momentum back to the Catholics. ■ SHINING KNIGHT English import Tom Knight smashed 71 as Malvern scored a convincing 51-run win over Bayswater in round two of the Sub District T20 competition. After Malvern made 4/171, Bayswater struggled throughout its innings to finish on 9/120. Malvern will play Moorabbin in the next round on December 4.

ANOTHER ONE FALLS: Malvern’s Nick Gill is bowled by Yarraville skipper Alex Hewet for six

Hale’s battling innings goes to waste A FIGHTING 81 from Damien Hale couldn’t save Malvern from Sub District defeat against Yarraville on Saturday after another mid-order collapse. Chasing Yarraville’s 245 from the previous week, Malvern was all out for 180 as Yarraville skipper Alex Hewet bowled unchanged to snare 8-80. After losing Liam Dunne (12) early, Hale and James Lynch came together to take the score to 69 and lay the platform for the middle order.

And when Lynch was also out for 12, Hale and Monto Perera moved the score to 2/92 before things began to unravel. When Perera was out in sight of the tea break, it sparked a collapse of 3/18 that gave all the momentum back to the visitors. Hale continued to bat on but when he fell in sight of his hundred to leave Malvern at 7/123, it signalled the end of the game as a contest. English import Tom Knight made a fighting 44 but it wasn’t enough

and Malvern’s slow start to the season continued. Conway was full of praise for Hale’s innings but lamented the lack of support. “He was magnificent. He’s a really good striker of the ball and he looked like he was going to be the man to get us across the line,” he said. “Unfortunately we just couldn’t get that one guy to stick with him and that’s what we missed. “Some of our shot selection and decision-making was pretty poor.”

■ MORRISON MOVES IN VAFA club Melbourne High School Old Boys has named Craig Morrison as a playing assistant coach. Morrison comes from Deer Park FC, where he was fitness coach, and he will have a similar role at MHSOB. Matt Nicholas and Rod Zlonzak will also continue as reserves coaches in 2013. ■ KRUSHERS SEEK COACH Oakleigh Amateur Football Club is seeking a reserves coach for 2013. The Krushers will play in Premier C of the VAFA after relegation in 2012. Applications to club secretary Paul Nikakis, pnikakis@tpg.com.au. ■ FAWKNER HOSTS GAMES Cricket and softball events of the Australian Corporate Games will be held at South Yarra’s Fawkner Park this weekend. Cricket will be played from Friday to Sunday and softball on Sunday only.
