RIFLE: Cold and windy conditions greeted
shooters competing for the A. Pohl Trophy over
600 yards, with J. Allen being named handicap
winner and top off-rifle in TR, and the only one to
make the limit.
There were several good rounds including a very
impressive 49.7 by J. Hoerisch, before the wheels
began to fall off and the standard of shooting
John Lindner again used two rifles and six
different lots of ammunition and was wondering
if he could use more, but was told by the captain
that two was enough.
One shooter spat the dummy in his second
round but informed everyone that he was allowed
to because he is captain.
Sniper in target rifle was J. Hoerisch (18.01).
Top off-rifle in F Class was S. Smithson (109.04)
and sniper was J. Taylor (22.01).
Next week is the first stage of the A. & R. Helbig
Trophy at 700 yards.
GOLF: Large downfalls of rain last Friday night
resulted in Saturday's competition being cancelled,
and the course closed, for the first time in recent
With a stream of water crossing two fairways and
all of the others waterlogged, it was impossible to
even find relief from casual water anywhere other
than in the trees.
It was a real shame given that it was the National
Bank day and players had driven from Victor
Harbor for their annual catch-up.
Although the day was canned, a small number
of players stayed around to enjoy the lovely
lunch prepared by the ladies and partake in some
fortified wine tasting.
It is planned to reschedule the National Bank day
later in the year to give the bank some support for
the excellent sponsorship they provide for the day.
Hopefully, this week will be a little drier, the dam
will stop overflowing and we can get to play the
Lower North Hire & Civil stroke monthly medal
with dry feet.
The event will be followed by a fantastic roast
pork dinner supplied and cooked by local butcher
This popular function is well supported by
members and friends alike.
Keep in mind the following week is the Morrison
family pairs ambrose competition, so you will
need to organise a partner who can help out with
the occasional good shot.
GOLF: Chris Girling took a firm grip on the club
championship with a 78/72 in windy, cold and
occasionally wet conditions to win the A grade on
He now leads Stuart Grigg by nine shots after
Round of the day goes to Julie Holland who fired
an excellent 89/66 and also won the putting comp,
with only 24 putts for the afternoon including
eight one-putts on the back nine.
Tim Clifton has a similar stranglehold on the
B grade club championship with an 11-stroke
lead over Jim Weir, despite now competing in
the daily A grade competition after reducing his
handicap to 18 following last week's impressive

Last Saturday the Alec Jarmyn memorial par
competition was played in memory of the late
Alec Jarmyn, a long-term member who was also a
volunteer on the course committee for some time,
whose commitment will always be remembered.
Unfortunately, the attendance was hampered
by the threat of bad weather and only 11 players
braved the conditions.
The winner of the day was Ian Goddard who,
despite the conditions, managed a +3 from John
Bell and Robert Hinderwell, who were the only
two other than Ian who finished in front of the
card with +1 best grade scores.

and Joel Campbell.
Next week we are home to Gawler Central,
so come along and support the mighty
FOOTBALL: The weekend was meant to start on
Friday night with the under nine and 11 matches,
but they were cancelled due to Tanunda Oval's
Saturday morning also saw the under 13s' game
cancelled for the same reason.
The under 15s played in shocking conditions.
Many parts of the oval were badly waterlogged
and the centre area was a sea of mud.
The game was very close, with only a couple of
points separating both teams all match.
In the end, the Tigers held out the determined
Magpies by two points.
Blayke Lane was best on ground.
Other contributors were Brad Pilkington, Jake
Billing, Josh Denton, Trey Mason and Cameron

They led comfortably all day, with Tigers' Jay
Frahm the best player.
Other standouts were Brandon Downie, Paul
Searle, Sean Maher, Adrian Connelly, Beau Mason
and Cameron Fletcher.
The reserves played in possibly the worst
conditions of the day, with both teams only
managing two goals each for the match.
In the dying minutes of the last quarter the
Tigers had four or five shots on goal but couldn't
manage a score, losing by only one point.
Ian Naulty was the Tigers' best, with Rhys Kalic,
Jon Hallion and Brett Campbell also playing well.
In the A grade the conditions were much the

controlling much of the first five or six minutes of
From there the Tigers took control and never
looked in any real trouble to be 32-point winners.
Charlie Molyneux was clearly best on ground,
aided by Corey Solly, Andrew Wright, Kyle Wurst,
Daniel Stanley and Aaron King.
This was the Tigers' first win at Tanunda since
2003, making the win that little bit sweeter.
Next week we head across the river to Willaston
to play the Donnybrooks in a top of the table
contest. Both sides will be without key players lost
to the zone team but, no doubt, it will be a great

The under 11 Reds slowly adjusted to the wintry
conditions, with the midfielders and forwards
eventually hitting their straps to display some
good ball movement and a hard-fought contest.
Best players were Austin Poulton, Tajin Krieg and
The boys are really starting to back themselves
and play an impressive brand of footy.
The under 13s continue to try their best against
bigger, faster teams.
The larger oval at Willaston, as well as the
conditions, really did not suit us at all.
There were some good passages of play down
the flanks but the boys failed to deliver into the
forward 50, and had difficulty getting it out of our
Best players were Alec Niblock, Morgan Bailley,
Thomas McInerney, Seth Rigney and Aaron Fryer.
It was another solid effort by 21 determined
under 15 boys.
We kicked the opening goal, but lack of
experienced, bigger bodies hurt us on a wet day.
Not having a bench from half-time made the
boys need to work harder and their bodies got the
better of them.
Best players were Hayden Amery, Joelan Cundy,
Tom Taylor, Joel Broadhead, Thomas Fryer and
After a slow start in the first, the under 17s
came together and showed true character and
It was a solid team effort in which all players

commended and the endeavour they displayed

conditions but, unfortunately, like the previous
week, weren't able to apply enough scoreboard
pressure early in the game.
Best players were Joshua Robinson, Ben
Haseldine, Jarrad Ashenden, Ashley Selleck,
Anthony Graham and Ben Darwin.
The A grade were up against a very good side
and needed to play their best footy to get the win.
Unfortunately, it wasn't to be, and Willaston
got the jump early on the boys, despite having
structures in place to prevent this happening.
Best players were Darren Leske, Travis Muster
and Jacob Wright.
