President’s Report

CEO’s Report

Dear Members,

Dear Members,

Wenty Leagues is again supporting the community generously through the ClubGRANTS program. This year sees us supporting over 30 community initiatives with more than $200,000 in grants. These initiatives encourage cultural harmony, community safety, health and fitness, education and community involvement, improving the quality of life for individuals and groups in our community.

Our brand new looking Club continues to impress, with Members enjoying the new facilities of their Club in numbers, making for some busy trade. I wish to acknowledge the support shown by our Board of Directors and Members to the Management team and staff throughout this busy period. The success of our Club has instilled pride in our staff, who work hard to make every customer’s experience memorable.

On the entertainment front we have recently launched Super Saturday, which sees free, live party band performances in Starlight from 10pm on selected Saturdays. Appearing in Starlight over the coming months will be an AC/DC Tribute on 17 Aug, Wenty favourites The Frocks on 7 Sep, 26 Oct and 21 Dec, and Big Radio Dynamite on 5 Oct and 23 Nov. I encourage you to come along to a Super Saturday, where you can dance the night away or simply experience the atmosphere that fills the Club. I would like to thank everyone who came out to support the Magpies at our recent Family Fun Day. As always the day was enjoyed by everyone and the support from the Magpies fans certainly boosted the players’ morale. It is pleasing to report that progress on the new Grandstand at Ringrose Park is going well. Despite the recent rainy weather, we have managed to complete some fundamental elements of the stand including the foundations and erecting the basic framework. The completed Grandstand will seat some 500 spectators with covered and open-air seating and will include an amenities block, first aid room and referee room. Don’t forget to swipe your membership cards for your chance to Relax, Indulge, Play and Explore on a holiday on us with our Mega $30,000 Holiday Giveaway. With four holidays planned to amazing destinations around the world and spending money thrown in too, your chance to win is almost upon us. The major draw will be on Sunday 11 August at 7pm and you must be in the Club to win. Finally, have a look in this Journal to see exactly what we’ve got planned to make your dad smile with our special Father’s Day breakfast and entertainment. I wish all of our dads a Happy Father’s Day for Sunday 1 September.

Mark Sheridan

The past month has seen some significant cosmetic changes to the outside of the Club. The last of the remedial asphalting has been completed and allows for another package of improvements to begin including better traffic signage and enhanced pedestrian access, increasing the safety of our Members. The driveway on the Eastern side of the Club has been converted back to one-way traffic and the embankment has been planted out. The Smith Street car park has also received some lighting upgrades. It’s great to see our Club’s external image beginning to reflect our internal quality. The Club has recently made some key operational changes to ensure we deliver the highest level of service to our Members. The Smith Street entry is now open from 10am in the morning and our Lucido Bar operating hours have been extended, so families enjoying our popular kids play area have access to a range of meal options throughout the entire day. We are also working towards building the seating capacity of the Club so our Members can enjoy the Club’s facilities at the busiest of times. There has been a recent addition to the Management team with the hiring of our new Human Resources Manager Rebecca Green. Rebecca and her team have just rolled out our new staff uniforms which are looking very smart on our staff. Get hash tagging! The Club recently joined Instagram which means you can upload your favourite pics and connect with us by hash tagging ‘wentyleagues’. Our Instagram page joins our growing Facebook group which has now exceeded over 2,000 likes. To celebrate the milestone, we gave away an iPad mini and vouchers exclusively to our Facebook friends. Follow us on Instagram or Like us on Facebook to keep up-to-date with what’s going on in the Club! I hope to see you in and around the Club.

Community Toongabbie Girl Guides

Meals from the Heart

Wenty Porkstars

The Toongabbie Girl Guides recently undertook emergency upgrades to their hall with an $11,775 grant from Wenty Leagues.

On Tuesday 9 July Wenty Leagues staff volunteered their time to cater for The Ronald McDonald House in Westmead. The house which was almost at full capacity houses sick kids and their families for short and long term stays.

Wenty chefs Caleb Moras-Smith and James Small are one of only 15 pairs of chefs to have reached the finals of the the ClubsNSW Chef’s Table competition for 2013.

The funds were used to alleviate the growing concerns of parents and their daughters by upgrading the electrical wiring, power and plumbing for the hall. The hall was originally built in 1964 with this being the first major upgrade to electrical and plumbing work in almost 50 years. The new electrical circuit means that the Girl Guides can now use their kitchen appliances and consider getting an air conditioning unit without experiencing a power outage. New plumbing also means the Guides can upgrade their bathroom in the near future which is an estimated $10,000 renovation.

The kids menu consisted of fettuccine and meatballs in a chunky tomato sauce as a main and chocolate cupcakes which the kids had to decorate themselves as dessert, while the parents enjoyed a chicken saltimbocca with green beans and potato au gratin followed by a cinnamon bavarois with spiced berry compote and almond brandy snaps. Wenty Leagues staff were touched by the brave and enduring stories they were told by some of the families. Thank you to the kids and families for briefly letting us into your lives, and we wish you all the best in the future.

Wenty Leagues has been recognised as a finalist in the 2013 Holroyd City Local Business Awards. The award recognises Wenty Leagues as an outstanding performer in the local club, hotel and bottle shop category. Wenty Café Manager Scott Martin was also recognised as a finalist for the 2013 Holroyd City Outstanding Youth Award for his work to develop and support the community. Winners were announced on Wednesday 24 July.

Café Manager Scott Martin is a finalist for the 2013 Holroyd City Outstanding Youth Award

The menu that was prepared for 24 guests including three judges was as follows: ENTRéE: Salt preserved Petuna ocean trout with house made pancetta, guacamole, fennel, baby coriander and citrus vinegar MAIN: Cassoulet of Muscovy duck, chorizo infused white bean puree, porcini mushroom and pork belly croquet DESSERT: Chocolate Marquise with salted caramel, pork fat churros dusted with pork crackling cinnamon sugar We are proud of Caleb and James for their efforts and we wish them the best of luck. Winners were announced on Monday 29 July. Check the Wenty Leagues website to view the results.

Sub Clubs

Sub Clubs DISTRICT FOOTBALL

NSW Cup After a great start to the season winning 4 of the first 5 matches things have started to become inconsistent. Round 9 - Wenty travelled to WIN Stadium to take on the Illawarra Cutters but, in a close game, just missed the points and were beaten 28-22. Round 10 - Wyong Roos were our next opponents at the Central Coast and on this occasion we took our A game and were clear winners 55-16. Round 11 - Hosting Canterbury Bulldogs at Ringrose in a good game of football we just missed, going down 28-24 but signs were there that things were starting to gel. Round 12 – Held at a cold and wet Newcastle Sports Ground, our chance to win was denied by a late Newcastle try, ultimately losing 20-14. Round 13 - In a rare home game Wenty were up against a desperate Wests Tigers side before a large and vocal crowd. In an entertaining and sometimes fiery match Wenty overcame the disadvantage of playing one man short for almost the entire second half (Kenny Edwards sent off but later exonerated at the review Committee) to come away with a well-deserved win 26-24. Round 14 - Wenty travelled to Toyota Park to take on competition leaders Cronulla Sharks, but with players lost to NRL duties and injuries we were no match for the undefeated frontrunners. Round 15 - Mounties were to be our next opponents and with an understrength side and injuries suffered during the game we were beaten by a well drilled team 35-6. Round 16 - Wenty had a slight reprieve with our first bye, which not only gave us 2 much needed points but allowed time for some injuries to heal. At the time of writing, the team were in 8th position but needed to become more consistent. The talent is there to ultimately play a strong hand over the remainder of the competition. Congratulations Api Pewhairangi and Brayden Williame who have earned call ups to make their debuts in the Parramatta NRL side. Ron Massey Cup We had a slow start to the season losing our first three games before winning Rounds 4 and 5 as previously reported. Round 6 - Wenty came up against last year’s Grand Final opponents The Entrance and, playing some of our best football to date, we came away with a clear win scoring 28 points and keeping the Tigers to nil. Round 7 - Burwood were next to taste the much improved Magpies with a 42-16 win to Wenty. Round 8 - Asquith felt the power of another top display by Wenty with a 60-6 margin in our favour. Round 9 - Against the battling Kingsgrove Colts, Wenty put on another big score winning 60-12. Round 10 - In the battle of the Magpies, Wenty hosted Wests Magpies at Ringrose. With our team losing key players thru injury and call up to NSW Cup, a hard game against a strong Wests side ensued. Wenty held on to win 21-14 making it 7 on the trot. Round 11 – This was a game against lowly placed Guildford and, as the form predicted, Wenty were big winners 68-18. Round 12 - Wenty travelled to Mounties, with a weakened side due to losing 5 players to NSW Cup, for what was the battle of the leaders with 1st and 2nd facing up. Starting strongly and leading early Wenty were overcome by Mounties losing 37-24 in a high scoring match. Alex Chan’s team, after losing the first three games, then went on a streak winning 8 consecutive games before the Mounties loss, elevating the team from last to second after 12 Rounds. With all players fit and available this team will undoubtedly put up a strong defence of their title won last year. WDRLFC polo’s are available for sale and can be

purchased at the Main foyer of the Leagues Club. A cheap buy at $45 each, everyone should be seen wearing one! Wenty jerseys and hoodies are also available for purchase at the Main Club foyer or at Ringrose Park on game day for the value price of $70 and $40 respectively! Ron Bottle - Secretary

JUNIOR RUGBY LEAGUE

At the time of writing we were into the middle stages of the competition and all teams were progressing well as at round 7. We had a lot of wet weather which made training at our grounds very difficult as they were closed most days of the week when rain was around. Despite that, our teams were still playing well on game days and we are very confident of another successful season with upcoming semi-finals fast approaching for all teams from U/8’s to Sydney Shield. Our TRYTIME (Special Needs) Rugby League team is progressing well also with 16 very keen players who turn up every Saturday morning at 8.30am to train and play the game. It’s hoped that other clubs will decide to get involved in this initiative next season so that our boys will have some sort of competition. The Lara Petrou trained Wenty Cheer Girls are having a great time on Saturday mornings up on Monty Bennett Oval cheering on the 6’s, 7’s and 8’s teams. The girls have a lot of fun going through their routines and train hard to get every detail correct. Allan McGowan - Secretary

GOLF A Golf Club member must put up with all types of conditions concerning the weather because over the last 8 weeks we have had torrential rain, strong winds, fog and even hail on our golf days. I must congratulate the 14 players who braved these terrible conditions to complete the final round of our stableford championship at Wentworth Falls. This event was over 4 rounds but took 6 weeks to complete because of the weather. We started this event with 36 players and finished with 14 with the winners and runner-ups listed as follows: A Grade winner Peter Kenyon from Neil Fuller B Grade winner Frank Martin from Frank Soballa C Grade winner Nathan Cook from Tosca Lipovic To the other 8 players thanks for showing up. Our Memorial cup has been played and, you guessed right, more rain with winners being A Grade Peter Kenyon, B Grade Frank Martin, C Grade Norm Hindy. Peter Kenyon and Frank Martin are certainly mud runners and must have webbed feet. Some great shots have been played on our Jackpot hole lately with one by Gary Stevens of 84cm securing the $360 cash, but I’m still waiting for that beer. Also some not so good shots sees some players joining the dreaded air-swing club including Brett Latham, Arthur Stephens and Troy Tyson. That’s one way to get your name in The Journal, the other way is to buy me a beer and I will make up a story for you concerning a great shot. Guzzlers cup winners lately have been Norm Hindy, Charlie Touma, Peter (muddy) Kenyon, Nathan Cook, Dave Owen, Ryan Payne and Rei Reihana. Our clubman of the year has reached the half way mark with Frank Soballa leading Rob Trent, Rei Reihana and Nathan Cook with another 20 players within 20 points. Upcoming events include Match Play Championships beginning on August 4 and our Foursomes event on September 8. Alan Thompson – President/Publicity Officer

SWIMMING First of all I must pass on our deepest sympathy to Robin Thomson and family with the passing of their father Charlie. Charlie was loved by all. In June, the 27th Annual Legacy Carnival was held at Queanbeyan. The numbers were down this year but that did not deter from a good weekend. Saturday consisted of bowls in the afternoon, followed by a meet and greet in the bowling club.

24 • The Journal WENTY LEAGUES AUG/SEP 2013

The Mayor of Queanbeyan donated the use of the pool for the Carnival which was much appreciated. It saved us a 30 minute drive. There were 70 entries in the Carnival. After the swim we then proceeded to Queanbeyan Bowling Club again for lunch and the presentation. There was a 25m and a 50m handicap race. In the Crocodile Cup (4x50mRelay) Wenty Leagues came 3rd and in the 10x25m relay Wenty Leagues came 7th. Last place is presented with the heaviest and ugliest trophy and it is proudly held by our local Clubs. 95 people attended the luncheon which is followed by a raffle. The raffle raised $2,700 with proceeds going towards the Queanbeyan Monaro Legacy. Ted Jolly organised a lovely harbour cruise for us in June. It absolutely poured rain but a good day was had by all. We are all looking forward to our Swimming Season beginning again in October. Joyce Rochford - Publicity Officer.

LADIES BOWLS The friendship day was a really fun day. The games organisers came up with a different format for the day.

MENS BOWLS Since our last Journal Report the Zone 10 State Pennant has been completed. Wenty Leagues won the No 1 Pennant Flag defeating Merrylands in the final. All the grades performed well in the latter half of the competition and should retain their grading for 2014. Our prestigious Magpie Triples Tournament, played on June 8/9, attracted 20 teams of high profile. Thanks to Wenty Leagues Club and NSW Poker Machines for their continued sponsorship. Bowls Coordinator Mick Harry and the Match Committee of the Bowling Club ensured the Tournament ran smoothly. Winners were as follows: 1st Tom Ellem, Steve McGuiness & Zelco Trbara - 10 pts + 63 2nd Paul Webb, Julio Posadas & John Hennessy – 10 pts + 37 3rd Neil Burkett, Anthony Breese & Nic Cadman – 10 pts + 32 4th Peter O’Connell, Adam Bowden & Steven Harry – 10 pts + 30 5th Scott Bateup, Craig Maythers & Carl Stone – 8 pts + 36 6th Peter Swan, Andrew Swan & John Stephenson – 8 pts + 30 Individual game winners were Game 1 – Mick Harry, Game 2 – Barry Lancaster, Game 3 – Chris Couchman, Game 4 – Mick Kelly, Game 5 – George Mumford and

Game 6 – Mick McDonald. At present the Zone 10 State Events are being played and Wenty Leagues is hosting Sections in Singles, Pairs and Fours. Greenkeeper Scott and staff have produced very favourable playing surfaces for the contestants. On Sunday 30 June we celebrated our 50th Anniversary. President George and V.P Colin Malley ensured the day was well organised and moved along at an easy pace. Some 65 bowlers attended. Unfortunately weather conditions washed out the morning bowls but the lunch and festivities carried on in the afternoon. Zone 10 Represenative Bill Sutcliffe, Ladies President Anne Stephens and 3 committee members, President of Leagues Club Ian McCann, Vice President Adam Cromack and Directors A Fowler, L Capovilla, T Simpson and T Branson made up the official party. Also in attendance were Life Members, sponsors and Committee members of the Men’s Bowling Club. Hopefully our next successful sentence will be to win the No 1 Pennant at the State Carnival at Merimbula on August 3-5. Merv Wright - Secretary

We thought we came prepared for the rain but it was relentless and the wind from the South was unbearably cold. We fished the 35 fathom mark with not many fish caught. Mario Veselcic then hooked the biggest Snapper the skipper had seen in 13 years of Charter operating - a 5kg beauty. The rain had become very heavy and we all decided to call it a day. Biggest bag went to Mario Veselcic Biggest fish also went to Mario Veselcic Sydney – July 7 Our Annual Fishing comp against Blacktown Workers was a great day with plenty of fish caught. 5 Fisho’s from Wenty and 5 from Blacktown competed, with Wenty coming out as winners.
