with Carl Pfeiffer
WHEN former FIFA president
Sepp Blatter announced Qatar as
the host of the 2022 World Cup,
the response from everyone in
the room spoke volumes.
There was jubilation from Qatar
representatives, which was equally
shared by Blatter, who remained on
stage with a grin from ear to ear.
While visibly excited, both parties
hardly looked surprised by the
announcement. With the bribery
scandal currently engulfing world
soccer, suddenly these reactions in
2010 make more sense.
More interesting was the reaction
from the rest of the room, which
appeared to not share the same
Many people remained stoney-
faced, possibly sensing something
was amiss but having no evidence to
While it has not yet been proven
that the decision was rigged, it
certainly is possible.
In fact, many of FIFA’s dealings
have a dodgy element to them.
How can Australia spend $43
million on its own failed bid to host
You heard right, $43 mill.
How do you spend a huge
amount of money like that on
a presentation which appeared
doomed from the start anyway?
Apparently, that’s the way FIFA
When the bribery scandal first
broke two weeks ago, Blatter
A FIFA spokesperson bizarrely
said he was not “dancing around
the room” at the news corruption
investigations had been launched.
The association pushed ahead
with its presidential elections, where
Blatter was re-elected and famously
declared himself as “the president of
But just days later, Blatter
suddenly decided to quit after
nearly 20 years as international
soccer’s supreme leader.
Following the announcement,
US media reported Blatter was
being investigated by the FBI and
US prosecutors as part of the probe

chief Greg Dyke, one of the fiercest
critics of the FIFA leader, said the
resignation was “brilliant for world
Just how many more perpetrators
the investigation uncovers remains
to be seen.
Moving forward, the best way
to rectify the situation is to get the
proverbial broom out and give FIFA
a thorough sweep out.
Those officials who associate with
Blatter and Co. have to go, even if
some are innocent.
The association has been
tarnished almost to the point of no
return and the only way to solve the
issue is to introduce new blood
into the fold so that trust can be

THE Barossa Valley Hockey Association’s under 13
boys were the best-per formed local team at the
State Junior Championships held over the weekend.
The boys started with a win and a draw on
Saturday, before a convincing 5-0 win over Upper
South East with goalkeeper Rohan Casey, Josh Gold-
er, Ollie Beadman and Austin Schenk playing well.
The last game of the day was a win against Port
On Sunday morning the boys gave Adelaide its
first loss, with Tristan Pfeiffer leading the way and
controlling the midfield with great support from
Todd Watt and Jay Rice.
A win in the final pool game saw Barossa take
on the Riverland in a semi-final, but, unfortunately,
there was a lapse of concentration, which saw the
opposition win by one goal.
The under 13 girls’ representative team had a
hard draw, with the first game against a very strong
Adelaide and scoring a 3-0 win.
The girls stepped up against Port Adelaide, only
conceding one goal, and the day was finished with a
nil-all draw against Seacliff.
On Sunday, the girls scored first against Upper
South East but they answered quickly with two
The girls finished the tournament with a win
against Port Pirie.
In the older age divisions, the under 15 and under
18 boys and girls combined with the Riverland in
what is known as ‘Crusher zone’ teams.
Unfortunately, the effort and commitment of
each of these teams was not reflected in the results.
None of the teams made the semi-finals but each
of the coaches praised the players for their work.
THIS year the Drawn Doubles Tournament was held
by Evanston Gardens Indoor Bowls Club.
The tournament had 28 entries, an increase
of six from the tournament previously run by
Club players nominating (including withdraw-
als) were Evanston Gardens (18); Kangaroo Flat (3);
Lutheran (1) and Roseworthy (6).
Lucky door prizes were donated by J. Dann
and G. Dargusch, while Liam Lee (aged five),
the youngest person present, drew the winners.
Richard Shanahan was drawn first, followed by
During the tournament one team lost by one shot
only - that being two first-year players in Bethaney
Lee (aged eight) and Tracy Daniele going down to
Isabelle Lee (aged 10) and Rachel Lee 9-8.
On the other end of the scale, a match between
four skippers; Gudrun Dargusch with Alecia Jen-
nings defeated Richard Shanahan and Andrew Mar-
The final was a win-from-behind result, with an
experienced played in Nathan Lee teaming up with
first-year player Val Blows being 4-7 down with one
end to play.
They scored five shots to run out 9-7 victors over
Dargusch and Jennings.
At the conclusion of the tournament, Evanston
Gardens president Nathan Lee thanked all for their
support and invited the association president Evelyn
Fairlie to present the trophies.
The trophies were donated by G. Dargusch, for
which we are most thankful.
two wells: A beautiful day at Two Wells for the pinehurst com-
petition for the Applebee/Belcher Trophy.
Pinehurst is where both players hit off, then hit each other’s
drive, then alternate hits with the best ball until holed.
Plenty of chances to put your partner where they have never
been before on the course.
Just ask Jim Weir, Steve Kelly gave him two hits off the fairway
all day, but they did well enough to beat the A graders (Grigg/
Shields and Ball/Hogg), who finished second last and last.
Winners were Gary Payne/Michael Davies with a fine 79/63.5
nett to hold off the Ians-squared (Smiffy and Clarke), who shot
Julie Holland and Elaine Grigg played stableford and Julie
was in fine form with an 84/62 off the stick, which equated to 44
The handicapper consequently got out the razor and shaved
1.3 off her handicap.

Next week is a stableford, with the second round of the Presi-
HaMley BriDGe: Last Thursday’s stableford competition pro-
vided some ‘fair’ scores considering the windy conditions.
Ed Manning won the day with 40 points from second-placed
Bob Hillier (38), while other prizewinners were Barry Schwartz,
Roger Hahn (35), John Bell and Bob Charman (34).
Others to make the better half were Dennis Nation (35 – not in
competition), John Mitchell, Dennis Hawke (33), Bob Hinderwell
and Roen Cameron (32).
Birdies were scored by Roland Pawlak, Bob Charman (ninth)
and Bob Hillier (14th).
Nearest to the pins were Roland Pawlak (ninth) and Bob Hillier
In a field of 23 players Errol Branson won the par competition
on a countback from Rex Mortimer, both scoring +2, while third
place went to Wim Van Pelt on a countback from Sam Wedding
and Bob Hinderwell, all with +1.
Leading grade scorers were Errol Branson, Rex Mortimer (+2),
Wim Van Pelt, Sam Wedding, Bob Hinderwell (+1), John Bell,
Roger Hahn (square) in the A grade.
In the B grade Dennis Nation (+1 – not in competition) headed
the scores, followed by George Dahlitz (square), Dave Russell, Bob
Charman (-1), Ron Smith, Noel Stringer and Roen Cameron (-2).
Birdies were scored by John Mitchell (third, fifth and 12th),
John Bell (ninth and 15th), Roger Hahn (third) and Anton Noack
Nearest to the pins were Barry Schwartz (fourth), John Bell
(ninth), John Mitchell (12th) and Roen Cameron (14th).
KapunDa: The long weekend brought about great weather
for the ‘Boo’ Menzel, I mean the Kapunda Hire and Civil, monthly
medal stroke round at Kidman links.
The numbers were down a little with a few away for the week-
end but 50 members participated to try to prevent the inevitable.
Once again we all battled unsuccessfully to prevent ‘Boo’ win-
ning the monthly medal round and another berth in the Paul
McCarthy Gold medal playoff.
His nett 67 was three shots up on his nearest rivals with a
group of six players on 70.
If ‘Boo’ ever found himself in any sort of trouble you could be
sure the flat stick would get him out of it, knocking in some long
crucial putts at various times during the round.
Another great effort in perfect conditions which left other
players in awe.
Tony ‘Cougar’ Holding finally put together 18 holes with his
75/70, good enough to win the A grade from the consistent and
in-form Andy Peters and big-hitting left-hander Dave Carson by
just the one shot.
Howard Jaques also had a 70 which gave him his first B-grade
win, ahead of both Gary Maynard and Paul O’Reilley on 72.
A group of four players in the C grade also ended up on nett
This group included youngster Justin Woods who bounced
back in emphatic fashion after his encouragement award win the
Justin was the winner of the countback which left Tony
Stevens, Geoff Zerk and newcomer Greg Hinderwell having to
settle for a day ball.
‘Hindy’ had his first round with an official handicap, which I am
sure will drop quickly into the B-grade ranks.
Just the three fillies made it out and Tine Perry continued her
fine form to shoot a creditable 75.
A good field of 21 players competed in Thursday’s stableford
round and it produced a worthy winner in Greg Jones who ended
up with 36 points, just the one ahead of Steven Watson and
The newly laid tee blocks from the previous week’s working
bee have come up a treat after a bit of a roll and dusting with
The first Saturday tee for the season is planned for June 20,
with the very popular roast pork night on the menu again.
There will also be sticky date pudding to finish off the meal.
Please put your names on the sheet at the bar to assist with
catering numbers and I am sure there will be room for some fam-
ily and friends if they are interested.
This Saturday we are back to a stableford round playing for the
Kapunda Rural Services prize.
