MEN’S GOLF
Nanjing Night Net

After last Saturday’s weather golfers were pretty lucky to be able to play at all on Sunday.

However the volunteers were in action in the morning and everything was ready for the 12.30pm shotgun for the Caltex Trophy Day.

A total of 14 teams of three were organised and dispatched to their various tees on time and all finished in good time.

You couldn’t say the conditions were perfect but even so very good cards were returned.

So good that the first three places were decided by fractions.

The winning team on the day was Mark Troth, Marty Starr and Jacob Troth with 57 1/3.

They were closely followed by Barry Bradtke, Jamie Logan and Carl Brus on 57 2/3 and the team of Tim Bailey, J Heathcote and A Whitechurch came third on 57 5/6 – very close results.

Balls in the ball competition were distributed to 61 1/3 and better but there was no nearest the pin.

The longest drives were performed by Dustin Hocking on the 16th, Tim Bailey on the 4th and for the ladies Megan Starr on the 10th.

Everyone concerned with the organizing of this day are to be congratulated.

Special mention for the four-wheeler refreshment vehicle and the sausage rolls, and thank you very much Caltex.

With another medal round washed out last Saturday it looks like a full month of catch up when the weather does take up.

However Wednesday’s are cooperating.

Ten players teed off last week and Rob Holland led the field with 38 points.

Brian Brown is always up there to be second on 37 points and Allan Kelly had 36 points to be third.

Balls were won by Max, Rob, Brian and Allan; and Doggie hit one good shot to be nearest the pin.

A lot of social golfers are waiting for better weather, but six keen ones were on the course last Sunday morning.

Bec is still showing off to the men winning with 33 nett, Allan Logan was runner up on 34 nett and was also the best putter, and the gorilla for the day was J Harris.

The nearest the pin jackpots.

The tipping competition is hotting up, helped along by a family hot curry night organised for this Friday night, June 22.

Take your pick or sample all of the assorted curries, cost of $10 for adults, concessions for kids.

Everyone welcome of course, and bookings would be nice to know.

After round 14 in the tipping competition S McCann still leads with 138 points, Jan Myers and Greg Oliver are equal on 133 points.

In the junior competition L Mitton is coming first on 132 points, C Brebner is next best on 129 points, and there are four people on 126 points.

There is a change of programme for next weekend, CJ Anderson’s day will be played at a later date, and a stroke round will be played instead.

On Sunday the format will be a stableford and a large contingent are traveling to Peak Hill to contest the Lachlan Valley Pennants.

Good luck and bring home another Pennant.

The following weekend, Saturday June 30 a stableford is programmed and on Sunday July 1 it is the ever popular Caragabal Open – get organised.

Duty members for this week’s Sunday night meat market are Greg Oliver and Shirley Mawhinney.

Panthers u15s score big with two wins

Hayden Lomax hits the front as he races to the tryline for another touchdown during Grenfell’s excellent 26/0 win over Young Yabbies in the u/15’s game at Bembrick Field last Sunday week.The Panther’s U15’s Rugby met at Grenfell R B Bembrick field on Sunday 17th June with full team.
Nanjing Night Net

This day will be well remembered by the boys as it was the first time they had ever had opportunity to play on home turf and the occasion was met with gusto.

The combined team consists of players from Grenfell, Temora & West Wyalong.

The 15’s had been playing very well together prior to this day considering they hadn’t trained together as a team. Wednesday 13th June was the boys first training session combined and what a difference this made.

It set this team on fire 15’s Panther’s won both games for the day.

Sundays Team Line-up: Grenfell – Will Brown, Cameron McKellar, Finlay Johnson, Brock Taylor, Troy Chapman, Ciaran Thomson Jones, Kyle Norris. Temora – Hayden Lomax, Charles Slinger, Luke Skidmore, Tom O’Raferty, Sam O’Raferty, Lachlan Barratt, Will Hartwig. West Wyalong – Regan Hughes, Brayden Taylor

Panther’s U15’s took on Young for their first game and they had full control of the entire game, not to take anything away from Young, they are a strong team and made the Panther boys work hard for every try.

Once the Panthers got their momentum going they didn’t slow down at all, with a great combination of speed and strength in every player.

Keeping our defence strong was always going to be quite the task but players like Cameron, Lachlan, Troy and Brock made it impossible for Young to get through. Tom, Luke, Finlay, Hayden, Ciaran and Kyle kept every inch of the ground covered and effectively collected any loose plays. While players like Sam, Will B, Will H, Brayden, Charlie and Reagan had their running legs ready.

Game 1: against Young Panther tries went to Charles Slinger 1, Hayden Lomax 2, and Finlay Johnson 1. Will Brown successfully kicked 3 from 4 conversions for the Panthers.

Final score 26 – Nil –Panthers win.

Our second game against the mighty lads from Griffith was always going to be tough. The Panthers had to dig deep and set their momentum running. Play zig zagged in a controlled and determined manner with both teams out to prove a point that they wanted the win. The Panthers 15’s did very well considering they were a player down in the second ?.

Game 2: Tries for this game went to Luke Skidmore 2, Finlay Johnson 1, Ciaran Thomson Jones 1, Hayden Lomax 2. Will B had some difficult angles to kick from managing 2 conversions.

Final Score 34 –Nil Panthers win.

Panthers U15’s are now back to 2nd on the ladder.

Thanks must go to our managers Gav Johnson & Peter Brown and Terry O’Raferty (Temora). Also to Referees Philip Johnson & Mark Hughes.

Plus a huge thankyou must go to the wonderful canteen organisers Wendy Ryder and Mandy Taylor and to the Chief BBQ Master Ian Ryder and band of dedicated helpers for keeping everyone well fed.

Thanks also to Rob Taylor and the working bee people on Friday. The grounds looked great!

Join the Christmas-In-July promotion

Join the Christmas in July promotion.It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Nanjing Night Net

It’s that time of the year again where the cold weather sets in and the chill in the air catches our breath and sees us ‘rugging’ up and staying indoors.

This is why Jan Parlett makes the effort to decorate the Exchange Hotel annually for a Christmas in July Experience to entice people to step outside and venture down town throughout the wintry month of July.

Jan has established a large following of Christmas enthusiast who travel many miles to see her Christmas displays and different decorations.

Jan is very aware of the significance of staging events so that customers will keep coming back to enjoy the seasonal celebrations.

We need only look at the growing momentum of the Henry Lawson Festival over the years to see the effect and impact an annual event can have on a town.

Jan, having worked in the Blue Mountains with their staging of Yule fest Christmas events watched the numbers of visitors flocking to brave the cold to partake in Yule fest celebrations and is now a strong believer that we can put Grenfell on the map as the centre in the west for everyone seeking a Christmas in July Experience.

This year Jan is staging ‘A White Christmas’ and will be closing her shop on Thursday 28th June so the finishing touches can be put in place for the Friday 29th June Christmas in July launch opening.

Jan is urging other businesses to come on board with the Winter Christmas Yule fest spirit and to decorate with a tree, homemade decorations that depict or symbolize their business, make quirky statements or playful attractive visuals displays.

Jan has many out of town customers who do walk up our main street and it would be a lot of fun if we could get visitors talking our town up as a must see Christmas town because they enjoyed venturing into all the shops to see what each shop has in store under or around their Christmas tree.

Jan also asks that anyone who is staging a Christmas in July activity, function etc leave information at the Exchange Hotel so Jan can promote your event to visitors who visit through the weekends throughout July.

To add a little incentive to the fun of decorating Jan is offering a prize for the most talked about Christmas decorating effort in a business outside of the Exchange Hotel.

The Best family in town – (L-R) Grenfell Town and District Band members Paul (Bandmaster), his brother Michael and Sister in Law Loy (R)?and their children Shannon, Grace and Henry at the Memorial Gardens on?Anzac Day.
Nanjing Night Net

Local Wedding: Two local families were united when Holly Thomas Mitton, daughter of Rodney and Katie Mitton and Glenn Matthews, son of Sid and Sandra were married in the beautiful surrounds of the Grenfell Country Club Gardens on April 14 2012.

Holly was attended by her sisters Abby Gold as Matron of Honour and Ashleigh Mitton and her best friend Sarah Stevens, Bridesmaids.

Glenn was ably supported by Brad Teague as Best Man with Groomsmen being his brother Graeme and friend Andrew Hampton.

Maddison Martin, niece of the bride and daughter of Daniel Martin and Ashleigh Mitton was flowergirl.

The bride’s and attendant’s bouquets were made of wheat from the Matthews’ farm.

For ‘something old’ sister in law Sarah Crewson made white gloves from Holly’s mother’s wedding dress for her to wear on this very special day.

The beautiful wedding cake was made by Glenn’s aunty, Sharyn Bradtke.

A reception followed at the Country Club.

The happy couple honeymooned for one week at Hamilton Island and did a cruise of the Great Barrier Reef and enjoyed a helicopter ride.

The newly married couple have made their home in Canberra.

Happy Birthday: Keith Davies enjoyed lunch with his wife Noelene on Sunday June 16 to celebrate his 60th birthday. Noelene, who takes many photographs, is very camera shy opted out of this one. Keith did not mind having his photograph taken with good friend Neville Condon.

Best Family in Town: Not too many towns can boast that that have the Best family in their band.

The Best family were united once again on Anzac Day playing and marching with the Grenfell Town and District Band and again during the Henry Lawson Festival Parade.

Paul Best, Band Master and his brother Michael, sister in law Loy and their children Grace, Shannon and Henry all enjoy playing in the local band.

The Bernard’s also are another great family of band members, as was former Band Master Jacko Birch and his family.

Australia by Bicycle: Ian Evans from Elora Ontario, Canada arrived in Western Australia in April prior to embarking on his journey of a lifetime down under.

This ambitious fundraiser undertaken by Evans while pursuing a long-held personal goal of bicycling across Australia from Perth to Sydney, much of it in relatively inhospitable terrain, Evans hopes to raise $10,000 for Habitat for Humanity.

Ian set off from Perth on his specialised tri-cross bicycle for his 5000 km journey on April 28, following the coast down south from Perth to Albany then up to Kalgoorlie before crossing the Nullarbor to Adelaide then Melbourne, Mildura, across the Hay Plains to West Wyalong, Grenfell, Cowra, Bathurst, Lithgow and Katoomba and finally Bondi Beach by Friday June 22.

Fully loaded (camping gear, food, 10 litres of water etc) the bicycle carries around 45kgs (100lbs).

Ian had a stop-over in Grenfell and was shown the sights by Terry and me.

He was very impressed with the town and in particular the beautiful old buildings.

He enjoyed his visit to the Railway Station, Men’s Shed, O’Brien’s Lookout and Henry Lawson’s birthplace.

He sincerely thanks Laurel and Carol and staff at the Railway Hotel for looking after him and Trudy and Steve at the Caltex Star Diner for providing breakfast.

Grenfell Pre-School and Long Day Care Centre: Family members and Staff of the Grenfell Pre-School and Long Day Care Centre enjoyed a picnic morning and lunch in Rotary Park recently.

The Grenfell Lions Club provided a Jumping Castle for the children to enjoy, whilst Pre-School Director Sharon Grant and her staff did the artistic work on angelic little faces.

A free sausage sandwich was cooked by the dads and distributed by the mums.

This was a great day and enjoyed by all. Although the children were disappointed to see the jumping castle come down, they all enjoyed helping to get the air out and roll it up.

Sincere Sympathy: Sincere sympathy is extended to the family of the late Glenn Hands of Bathurst.

Glenn is survived by his wife Wendy (Lamkin) formerly of Grenfell and sons Leigh, Paul, Jeffery and the wives and partners.

Glenn’s in laws Dot and Ron Lamkin attended the funeral in Bathurst on Tuesday June 19.

CWA Evening Branch International Night: Members of the community are invited to come along and join the CWA Evening Branch at their International Night, with the Country of Study being Timor-Leste (commonly known as East Timor) and learn more about our neighbour’s country and enjoy traditional cuisine prepared by Carol Logan at Fettlers Restaurant.

Shire population increase – 2011 Census Figures

The changing face of New South Wales was revealed today as the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released the first results of the 2011 Census of Population and Housing.
Nanjing Night Net

The results show that the new Census resident population of New South Wales is 6,917,658, up from 6,549,175 in 2006 – an increase of 5.6 per cent.

The data also shows that the local government area with the biggest growth in New South Wales is Blacktown, which now has 301,097 people up from 271,712 in 2006 – a rise of 10.8 per cent.

The local government area with the highest proportionate increase in New South Wales is Palerang, which grew 16.5 per cent to 14,351 people from 12,313 in 2006.

The good news for the Weddin Shire is, however, even better. The population figures actually showed a small increase. In 2006, the population of the Shire was 3,797 and continuing on in that vein, 2007 saw the population again drop to a figure of 3,775. The same was evident in the 2008 figures that saw a further shrinkage to 3,769. This trend continued for 2009 when the population again diminished, this time to 3,747. The trend for 2010, however, reversed those previous years when the number of Weddenites rose to 3,773. It is no co-incidence that this rise in population coincided with the end of the drought and a return to some semblance of a healthy economy for the local rural producers.

However, the really good news that can be derived from the mass of statistics available on the Census Website is that shire’s population in 2011 was 3801 – which equates to a 7% increase. No doubt this will be good news for those in the shire charged with the responsibility for the formulation of growth and expansion policies over the next few years. The figure of 7% is the best news in a long time and actually reverses well over a decade of declining population.

Another truly encouraging statistic for the Census is that the small growth registered by the shire ranked 74th in the fastest growth category for NSW and 111th in the largest growth column. That leaves the shire well positioned with many of its neighbouring councils recording the following figures in the same two categories – i.e. Cowra on 94 and 97, Young 87 and 94, Bland 100 and 108 and Parkes – with its mining boom – on 79 and 87.

All in all – this is a result that will no doubt please the Weddin Shire Council and will also have a flow-on effect for all the Grenfell businesses. In fact this is the best news that has been officially recognised now for some ten years.
