NETBALL AND FOOTBALL: During
this past week, the combined netball
and football junior presentation
night was held at the clubrooms
and was well attended.
Highlights of the year were overed,
the three junior premiership sides
again congratulated, best and fairest
and other awards all announced,
and many thanks passed on to the
coaching teams and everyone who
has helped throughout the season.
Junior Netballer of the Year was
presented to Maddie Nicholls,
while Netball Junior Club Person of
the Year went to Sophie Warland.
Congratulations and thanks to all
involved for all that was collectively
achieved - another great year for
the club juniors in 2014.
A weekend without local football
and netball -- very strange but
the year moves on with senior
presentation night this Friday at the
The Terrace Function Room at the
Gawler racecourse, from 6.30pm.
This is a night when we see who
has been successful with best and
fairest and other team awards for
the various grades.
It also gives the club an
opportunity to thank all of our
volunteers who make it happen
There are limited tickets available,
so give Rod Knight or Leanne
Songer a ring to secure your spot.
It's also that time of the year when
the clubs need to conduct their
official duties, including annual
Netball will be holding its
presentation on Wednesday,

On Friday, October 31, the sporting
and football clubs will hold their
annual meetings in the clubrooms,
beginning with the sporting club at
7.30pm, followed immediately by
the football club.
It would be great to see a good
roll-up at all the annual meetings.
It's not a matter of dodging a job
-- it's a matter of supporting your
club, hearing from the presidents
about the year gone and, more
importantly, what the coming year
holds for the club.
Get there, it's not a long night and
you never know you just might find
something out you didn't know
about your club.
PETANQUE: A little slice of France
will be on show at Dead Man's Pass
on October 12, the Gawler Cross
Country Petanque Championships.
Hosted by the Gawler Petanque
Club, the event highlights this very
popular game in a beautiful setting.
Usually played on gravel-covered
pistes or pitches, games will be
spread across the park on a variety

the different surfaces would make
for very interesting games and will
be a little bit different to the norm.

Gawler and play competition games
each week at our venue," he said.

GOLF: AFL grand final day and
recently cored greens did not deter
a good field of 70-plus members
from competing in the stableford
competition on Saturday.
The cored, slower greens must
have suited most players with
some fantastic scores carded and
a third of the field playing to their
Andy Peters played early and was
pretty comfortable sitting in the
clubhouse with 42 points under his
Dave Carson also signed off on
42 points and eventually won the
Andy's fantastic effort had him on
top of the A-grade voucher by just
the one shot from 'Johno' Mosey
with Mick Orvad and Tony Holding a
further one shot back.
Nine of the top 15 scores came
from A-graders, which may have
been an indication of being able to
handle the wind a little better.
Greg Jones was having none of
that with his 41 points.
Steven Watson (x2) had 39 and
Sal Hambour and Lucas Bagshaw
played to their handicaps with 37.
Richard Schultz and Darrel Davies
fought it out in the C grade with 39
each, with the former successful in
Dave Bashford was sneaking
along, one point behind.
Marianne Daniel was the best of
the ladies with 40.
A visitor from Riverside Golf Club,
Graham Twartz, who starred with
43 big points, topped Thursday's
smallish field of 11 players.
Jamie Lindeblad also did well with
40.Not too many stories from the day,
other than Joe Ryan's attempt to
break Trish Sweet's new 'skipping'
record across the water.
Craig McKnight is probably as
good a ball striker in the club as
anyone but even he admits his flat
stick still remains a problem, three-
stabbing several greens again on
GOLF: AFL grand final day and
only 12 hardy souls, not interested
in footy, braved some pretty warm
and windy conditions at Royal Two
The hard-running conditions must
have suited the worm burners of
Paul Shields, who shot a fine 40
points to take out A grade from Yogi
Frencken, who also hits the ball low
Hans Linford continued his good
run of form to win B grade with 40
points from Danny Smith and Steve
Kelly, also 40 points.
It was good to see Danny also take
out B-grade long drive and the pro's
approach on 18, as well as a birdie
on that hole, testament to his long,
straight hitting on the day.
Next week is presentation day
ambrose and barbecue tea and
probably the last match for the
season, unless we get some rain.
The course is starting to get a
bit hard, the grass is dying off and
those 'Joe Blakes' are starting to
appear, which will keep the course

DESPITE neither man taking

Searle had to wait until the fi-

metres, to get a win, with his
long-shot Sarcasm ($21) getting
the job done.
