Bradman expects 5000

Picturesque Bradman Oval will come alive once again with over 5000 spectators travelling far & wide to enjoy a great day of village green cricket when an Australian Country XI meets the visiting Zimbabwe side for a one-day international match on Friday 19 January 2001.
Nanjing Night Net

The Bradman International Challenge, as it is now called, has traditionally drawn teams from England and South Africa with six previous encounters at Bradman Oval against a Bradman XI from 1990 to 1999. To have Zimbabwe play a one-day international on the famous ground is a real achievement for the Bradman Foundation and a chance for spectators to enjoy a game that has become a social highlight on the cricketing calendar.

Zimbabwe showed its strength during the World Cup tournament last year and will put up its best players for the encounter with many up-and-coming stars in the Australian Country XI. The match promises to entertain and delight the crowd as always with teams being announced as we draw nearer to the cricket season.

Play commences at 10.30am and is expected to run until approximately 6.30pm. There will be stalls selling prized match souvenirs, refreshments, sausage sizzles, ice-creams, etc. Bradman Museum is also open for those attending the match at a special reduced fee.

Entry to the match is for ticket holders only – so get in early and you won’t be disappointed when the match is a complete sellout. Tickets are now on sale at Bradman Museum by phoning (02) 4862 1247. Admission costs $25.00 for adults, $15.00 concession and $10.00 for children. Match tickets can also be purchased as a great Christmas gift idea!

It’s not every day an international match comes to Bowral, so why not make a weekend of it and reserve your accommodation for a Southern Highlands escape. Contact the Southern Highlands Accommodation Association on 05 0082 0082 (normal phone charges apply).

AnnaGram

THE sun is shining with spring warmth, although the breeze retains just a hint of frost. Out in the garden the dogs and cats bask on the lawn in the sun.
Nanjing Night Net

The twin mounds of spotty flesh rise and fall gently, in time to their deep breathing. I note Coosh’s girth with some concern. She is expecting puppies in a couple of weeks, and I have been told not to let her get too fat.

Limiting her food intake makes her twice as hungry as normal and she was a gannet to start with.

The fridge in the laundry is stuffed with chicken carcases stripped of their flesh. Coosh is supposed to have one of these for breakfast, to ensure she has enough calcium, then half her normal dinner at night.

Tossing the gruesome lump of dead chook out to her before I’ve had any breakfast is enough to put me off my own. Coosh has no such qualms. She chomps and scrunches like a mechanical muncher, then races back to beat on the glass of the door with her paws. She knows we will by now be giving Myffy half a piece of rye toast, and she wants some of that as well.

She doesn’t get any. She can see us, just a metre away, eating our toast and leaving her to starve outside. Her efforts become frantic, and I’m surprised she doesn’t come through the glass. It takes a great effort of will to avoid looking at a large dog throwing itself at the door in an attempt to get to the last piece of your toast and jam before you do.

Beating at the door does at least burn a few calories off Coosh. The only time she shows any desire to exercise is in the pursuit of food. The Man of the House has taken to putting the cat’s dishes further in on the table, so that Coosh can’t reach them. That doesn’t stop her trying and she does the equivalent of yoga stretching towards the saucers.

If Coosh were human, she would be one of those expectant mums who take to the couch with piles of magazines and boxes of chocolates as soon as the pregnancy is confirmed. She might read about the exercise she ought to be taking and the fruit and vegies she ought to be eating, but that’s as far as it goes.

Coosh came back from her fortnight of passion at the breeders in a very dreamy state of mind, and has stayed that way. Instead of leaping and prancing along the beach, chasing seagulls and trying to catch the fish in the waves, she plods along sedately behind Myffy.

This means we have a very slow walk, because Myffy’s pace depends on whether or not the damp has got into her arthritis. Even Myffy got fed up with the shuffle, and suddenly skipped along, barging into Coosh in a playful shove and galloping off into the waves.

Coosh looked horrified, skittered away to a safe distance and resumed the sedate plodding. That Myffy should expect her to frolic and gambol in her delicate state was obviously an affront.

Myffy’s gambolling took her as far as the next big wave, which knocked her off her shaky old legs. She disappeared under the foam and I was a source of great interest to some holidaymakers as I waded in fully clothed and shod to pick her up and point her in the direction we were supposed to be going. Myffy takes these accidental duckings quite well, appearing refreshed and even running along the beach after them.

She gave a great shake and nearly fell over again, and I looked around for Coosh. She was up in the dunes, about 100 metres away, digging at the sand.

“Oh good,” I thought. “She’s getting some exercise.”

As I watched she extracted something long from the sand, stretching back on her haunches to release it. Too late I realised it was a fisherman’s stocking, a piece of pantihose filled with smelly bait. The stocking is scraped over the surface of the sand, the appalling stink of the well-ripened bait bringing beach worms to the surface.

Coosh saw me moving hurriedly towards her and ran, chomping on the elongated sausage as she did so. If I could only reach her before it disappeared entirely down her throat I could pull it out again. Coosh knew that, and ran faster.

From looking like an invalids’ outing we were now tearing along the sand, Myffy hopping along in the rear. Coosh gulped mightily and the last vestige of the stocking disappeared down her gullet.

She stopped instantly, and grinned at me, wagging her tail. Wafts of rotten bait gusted at me. Myffy sniffed her chops, wanting to know what smelt so good. Stocking safely stowed away inside, Coosh took up her place at Myffy’s rear again, and we all plodded back to the car.

That’s the third loaded stocking she’s eaten. She regurgitated the other two after a lapse of several days. She had digested the contents and hiccupped the stocking back. I have watched enough vets’ programs on television to know that much smaller objects cause problems in dogs intestines.

I would have to wait and see what happened.

“Don’t give her anything,” I said to the Moth as we walked in. “She’s been supplementing her calcium with stockings stuffed with rotten fish.”

Coosh showed no signs of having eaten anything untoward and leapt around, waiting for her supper dish to appear. I relented, and gave her small serving of rice which she swallowed in a second, looking for more.

I have seen no sign of the stocking, but Coosh appears well.

This doesn’t stop dreams filled with tiny Dalmatian puppies being born wrapped in pantihose.

Despite the diet, it looks like Coosh is having about two dozen.

Bowral reps show touch of class

48 Bowral Touch players will head to Wagga this weekend to compete in the annual Southern Suns Regional Championships.
Nanjing Night Net

Along with twelve officials, the association will field four sides in a bid to claim its first title at the prestigious tournament.

“I think we’ll definitely win two divisions this year and have got a realistic chance in three,” Secretary of Bowral Touch Association Ken Adcock predicted.

“There is a great deal of prestige involved in the competition and it is a stepping stone for selection in the National Touch League.

“We’ve even got two Australian representatives in Dave Elliott and John Acton who are amongst the elite players in the world.”

So popular has the game become locally, that the association now boasts an amazing 900 registered players.

“People don’t realise how big the game is in the Highlands and our participation numbers put us on a par with most other major sports,” Adcock said.

“Those playing with Bowral have the added incentive of playing with the strongest association (NSWTA) in the country.”

And for those concerned that the game might not be their cup of tea, Adcock begs to differ.

“Anyone can play touch with age divisions from U7s to over 50s,” he said.

“It’s also a lot of fun and great for fitness.”

Aaron’s road to glory

Willow Vale racing driver Aaron McGill will meet his moment of truth on Sunday amid the deafening roars and exhilarating speeds of the mighty V8s.
Nanjing Night Net

Careering around a slippery mountain at speeds in excess of 300 kph may not be everybody’s idea of fun but for McGill it’s a passion.

The 37 year old driver will realise his lifelong dream this weekend when he lines up for the first time in the V8 FAI Bathurst 1000.

Powered by a 650 horsepower VS Commodore, there’s no doubt McGill has finally reached the pinnacle in this most enduring of sports.

“This is the ultimate, it’s like the Melbourne Cup for race drivers,” he told the News from Mt Panorama on Wednesday.

“It’s been my lifelong ambition to get to this point and I must admit there’s a lot of emotion that goes with it.”

Currently competing in the BOC Gases Super Touring Championship, McGill was called up to for the big race by the Paul Morris/Big Kev team and amazingly will make his V8 debut at this most auspicious of occasions.

As a result, the big moment is tinged with a degree of apprehension.

“To be honest it scares the hell out of me,” McGill confessed.

“I’m even more nervous because it’s wet.

“When you’re travelling 300 kph only inches away from the car in front it’s pretty terrifying.

“Most people don’t realise but you can’t see a thing and you’ve just got to drive and hope the person in front is well out of the way.”

But the sheer exhilaration of the moment more than compensates for the risk, according to McGill.

“The feeling is unbelievable and you just block all the other stuff out,” he said.

“You get into a groove and become entranced.”

Racing is a labour of love for drivers like McGill with only the top few drivers being able to grab the headlines and consequently the big bucks.

“Most teams run on a yearly budget of $1-3 million and the cars alone are worth a fortune,” he said.

“These days you have to be more of a marketing person than a race driver.

“The fact is that every red blooded male in Australia sits down to watch the big races and sponsors demand a good performance from drivers.

“Bathurst brings together the best drivers from Australia and the world.”

There’s no question that McGill has his work cut out for him on debut but he remains optimistic about his chances.

“I think we’re capable of finishing in the top 35 which would be a great performance,” he said.

McGill has actually snared two drives over the weekend, earning a spot in the two-litre production car race behind the wheel of a Suzuki GTI tomorrow.

But his moment of truth will come on Sunday in the V8.

“It’s a bit hard just getting used to the sheer power of the car,” he said.

“It weighs less than a normal Commodore but has five times the power.

“You put your foot down just a bit and you get 300 horsepower.”

But at the end of the day, McGill’s pursuit of his dream has only been made possible by the support of locals and he made sure he paid tribute to all those that have helped along the way.

“People don’t realise how huge motor sports are locally,” he said.

“I really must thank people like Dave Edwards from Oxley Travel, Les Johnson, John Winter Carpets, Dux Hot Water and Tyrepower for all the support they’ve provided over the years.”

Such is the ongoing prohibitive cost of motor racing at this level, that McGill urgently requires more local businesses to get behind him and as such has devised five $1000 sponsorship packages for this weekend’s big race and beyond.

Anyone wishing to support this most talented local man can do so by calling him on 4872 2622.

Working bee at Glebe Reserve

RESIDENTS of Bega’s Glebe area are invited to participate in a tree planting at the Glebe Reserve in Bunyarra Drive this week.
Nanjing Night Net

The working bee will be held on Friday (October 10) from 10am and represents the start of a series of improvements in the reserve.

Bega Valley Shire Council has written to all residents of the Glebe area inviting them to the working bee and advising them of some of its proposed management actions.

It has also invited them to comment on a draft landscape concept plan for the reserve.

Council’s manager of urban design and reserve planning, Mark Canaider, said Glebe Reserve was a key use area for local residents, particularly children.

He said the improvements proposed in council’s draft landscape concept plan were designed to complement existing recreational opportunities and the area’s amenity.

The proposed improvements include the provision of garden beds containing local indigenous plant species, the relocation and long-term replacement of playground equipment and the provision of open space for more active recreations.

Some of the other planned improvements include the provision of shade trees and the provision of a gravel footpath network throughout the park for bikes.

There are also plans for new picnic tables and a barbecue area.

Mr Canaider said the improvements would be carried out over time, subject to funding availability.

The Department of the Housing already had contributed some funding towards the project and he thanked them for their assistance.

Mr Canaider urged Glebe residents to comment on the concept plan and to get involved in the planting on Friday.

The trees have been donated through a Country Energy grant fund and two local environmental workers, Lisa Roberts and Peter Charlton, from ‘Inflorescence’.

There will be free morning tea from 10am and face painting for the children.

Comments on the draft concept plan will accepted up until the close of business on Friday, October 17.

For more information phone Kalpa Goldflam on 6499 2298.

Shoplifters doing their Christimas Chr(39)shoppingChr(39)

After catching four shoplifters red-handed in her Bowral store in seven days, Donna Smith is understandably annoyed.
Nanjing Night Net

Ms Smith has been working at Bob Roger Clothing Store in Oxley Mall for 12 years including 18 months as owner/manager, but said he has never witnessed such a rapid occurrence of stealing.

And now she has been forced to take extra measures to keep watch on such offenders.

Extra staff are working more shifts to ‘protect stock’, a measure she conceded is more expensive, but is something she just had to do.

“Four shoplifters in seven days is pretty unbelievable,” she said.

Ms Smith said it was her shop’s policy to immediately hand over shoplifters to the Police to discourage repeat offenders.

And to further combat crime in the local area, Ms Smith said she liases with similar shop operators in Bowral, including Southern Jeans and Brafel to inform them of anyone suspicious.

All staff at Bob Roger Clothing Store are now particularly wary of their customers, as Ms Smith stressed that shoplifters were of all ages.

“It’s not just the kids – it’s the adults as well,” she said.

Ms Smith said Bowral may be more attractive for criminals from outside the area, as she believes there are not as many Police patrolling the streets as in Macarthur or the South Coast.

Following the recent string of offences, Police have sent a stern warning to local schools stating that they will not tolerate such actions, and offenders will be prosecuted, regardless of age.

Bowral Detective Mark Harris said it was important that the community, particularly parents, was aware of the problem, which in turn, helps curb such crimes.

Although Detective Harris said the reported incidences of shoplifting was not high in this area, he thought ‘there was definitely a bit going on’.

British Consul-General Fayre game

British Consul-General in NSW Peter Beckingham will officially open this year’s ‘Olde English Fayre in Exeter tomorrow.
Nanjing Night Net

A popular annual event, the fair will feature a range of colourful reminders of Olde Englande, and is the biggest fair of its type in the Highlands.

Several official arms of the UK will be represented at the fair, including the Consulate-General in Sydney, the British Tourist Authority and the British Council, together with the Australian British Chamber of Commerce.

Highlights of the day will be jack russell terrier races, morris dancing, a town crier, medieval feasting and English Civil War battles with pikemen and musketeers.

Special guests will be the members of the NSW Pike & Musket Society; a band of enthusiasts dedicated to researching and accurately portraying the appearance of a military unit of the early 17th Century.

Members of the Society will represent individuals who are part of the community of a Civil War militia company; officers, soldiers, musicians and the camp followers.

There will be plenty of traditional English fare, including Cornish pastries, toffee apples, roast beef, Devonshire tea and ales and beer from the north of England.

The famous 3801 steam train is running a special service from Sydney central to the Southern Highlands for the event.

The Fayre starts at 10am at Exeter Park, located in the centre of town.

The action takes place throughout the day but organisers suggest the earlier visitors come, the better.

St Pat’s pupils see green

PUPILS at St Patrick’s Primary School in Bega soon will be seeing green after the school recently received a Mitre 10 Junior Landcare Grant to undertake an environmental project.
Nanjing Night Net

St Patrick’s will use the grant to deal with problems of erosion on the playground adjacent to the old convent.

Some trees were removed recently and the area now will be revegetated.

The Mitre 10 Junior Landcare Grants Program, developed by Landcare Australia and Mitre 10, is one of Australia’s largest ever action-oriented environmental education programs.

The program will distribute hundreds of grants to schools and youth groups across the country.

St Patrick’s principal, Gerard McGilvray, said the grant would be a major boost for the school’s environmental program.

“It is very difficult for many schools to find money for things like environmental initiatives so the Mitre 10 Junior Landcare Grants Program will be a huge help to those schools who normally could not afford to get students involved in environmental projects,” Mr McGilvray said.

Hundreds of grants will be allocated across Australia making this one of the most substantial and far-reaching educational programs ever undertaken.

Most grant applications are expected to have a value of up to $500 and are more likely to be successful if they:

* Involve the school community or broader local community;

* Have determined educational outcomes with an environmental focus;

* Are well planned and documented;

* Link with a community Landcare Group; and

* Are student-oriented and allow maximum student involvement.

The program assessment dates are aligned with the State school calendars.

Successful applicants will need to spend the grants funds within the calendar year that the funding was received. However, the actual project may be ongoing.

Further information about the grants program is available on the Landcare Australia and Mitre 10 websites (www.landcareaustralia南京夜网.au or www.mitre10南京夜网.au) or by phoning Landcare Australia on 1800 151 105.

Landcare Australia Chief Executive Officer, Brian Scarsbrick, said the program would help to develop an environmental ethic among thousands of young Australians.

“The nature of the Mitre 10 Junior Landcare Grants Program encourages ownership through involvement as kids not only learn how to help care for our environment, but are provided with the resources to participate in local Landcare projects,” Mr Scarsbrick said.

Mitre 10 Group general manager (marketing), Ian Tyson said Mitre 10 and Landcare had started what would become Australia’s largest home improvement project ever.

“Mitre 10 is involved in home improvements for our customers and we believe that by involving Australian youth in helping to improve the environment, we will be able to make a difference to our planet which is home for all of us,” Mr Tyson said.
