Gunning league revival

04.25.2020, Comments Off on Gunning league revival, 老域名, by .

TRAINING TIME: Men and women from the Gunning Kangaroos rugby league club swelter under the hot Thursday sun during their first training session of the year. Photo: Peter Oliver. UNDER the unforgiving late afternoon sun, they sweated and puffed their way through the club’s first training session in more than a decade.

More than 40 players, from Gunning, Goulburn, Dalton and Yass, keen to be part of the first Gunning Kangaroos rugby league side to take to the field in 12 years.

A chance, in a “rugby league mad” area, to be a little part of history.

Last Thursday, they gathered at the Gunning Showground, many of them meeting each other for the first time.

Meeting their new coach, Darren Solomons, who previously led the Goulburn Dirty Reds rugby side to an undefeated season.

After a few words from Solomons and trainer John Thomas, they were into it.

Touch footy, passing drills and push ups. The hard work had begun.

Club president Ian Blackburn watched on from the sidelines, and he liked what he saw.

“I’m very happy with the turnout for the first training session of the season, and there’s a lot of enthusiasm in the community, a lot of support. It’s been great so far,” he said.

“I had about 50 rego forms here with me – I’ve got seven left.”

So far, 43 men and women have signed up with the club.

The men will play in the George Tooke Shield competition, while the women will take part in pre-game league-tag matches against neighbouring sides.

But they are one club, all playing under the Roos banner.

There are even plans down the track to introduce a juniors club.

The catalyst for the club’s revival, 12 years since the club last took to the field, was sparked by a couple of locals who were keen to resurrect the Roos.

“Brent Poidevin was instrumental in the club reforming.

Then (player) Col Davis got wind of it, and (coach) Darren Solomons got wind of it and it went from there,” Blackburn said.

“But a lot of it was done through Brent and talking with Wayne Apps, who’s a previous Roos player.

Wayne asked me if I could come along and help out, and all of a sudden I’m president.

“Because this is such a strong rugby league community, it was like a tsunami.

People came out of the woodwork everywhere for the first meetings, and it just built from there.”

Purely from word of mouth and, because this is 2015, Facebook.

It’s not uncommon for country sports clubs to struggle with forming committees to run the show.

But the enthusiasm is clearly there. The Roos have already got a President, vice president, secretary, assistant secretary, assistant assistant secretary (who is also a player), a treasurer and media officer, along with a dozen committee members.

A lot of locals are getting on board with sponsorship.

Local fabricating firm MA Steel is going to build goalposts for the club, to international standard, as their sponsorship.

Sportspower Goulburn threw in a number of water bottles for the players – which got a solid workout on Thursday.

“The Country Rugby League has been fantastic with helping getting us up and running.

They’ve given us grants and resources, they threw nine balls at us, practice pads,” Blackburn said.

“We’ve got insurance, public liability. It’s been a busy past three weeks.

This year has been a major groundswell, and it’s really been nose to the grindstone.”

The hard work on the field continues on Thursdays at the Gunning Showground.

Glenfield school pledges to ‘break the cycle’ with White Ribbon event

Committed: Alec Ramsey (front) and Daniel Hynds show their dedication to anti-violence by tying ribbons to a fence. Picture: Jeff de PasqualeWith a symbolic gesture, kids at Glenfield’s Ajuga School made the pledge to play their part in putting an end to domestic violence.

After learning about domestic violence throughout the year, the kids at the small specialist school on Hurlstone Agricultural High School’s grounds took part in a White Ribbon event last week.

The students walked from the school downRoy Watts Road to tie white ribbons around a fence, showing their support for the organisation.

Assistant principal Todd Wilcoxon said the school is doing its part to break the cycle.

‘‘We’re joining a number of schools to make the vow to end domestic violence,’’ he said.

‘‘We worked from the basis of White Ribbon’s pledge to start a conversation and show our support for reducing the statistics around domestic violence.’’

Mr Wilcoxon said violence was not a far-removed concept for many students, and it was extremely important to ‘‘break the cycle with education’’.

He said the act of tying the white ribbons was a symbol of the students’ commitment to living by an ‘‘ethos of anti-violence’’ which has been created at the school.

Students made banner and projects to demonstrate their learning throughout the year.

Bolt hits outdoor pool

THUNDERSTRUCK: AquaZone lifeguard Tom Wilson evacuated the outdoor pool during a storm just before a lightning bolt hit. Picture: Rob GunstoneA WARRNAMBOOL lifeguard’s vigilance averted potential disaster when a thunderstorm hit AquaZone’s outdoor pool.

Tom Wilson was working an early shift on Friday when he observed lightning strikes moving closer to the Queens Road facilityby counting the time between the flash and thunder clap.After warning about 20swimmers that thestorm could force themto head indoors, the lightning came close enough for an evacuation.

“There’s a protocol there–if you hear it within 30 seconds of seeingthe flash, that’s something you need to stick to,” the 22-year-oldsaid.

“After the first 15 minutes we heard a big clap about 40 seconds away so we continued on, but a couple of minutes later there was a bigger one within 14 seconds.

“That was when Imade the call to get everyone out of the water.”

Mr Wilson said there was some commotion as the patrons, most of them Warrnambool Swimming Club members, hastily evacuated the pool.

“Once they were inside I was cleaning up a bit outside and as I opened the door to come in, a huge crack of lightning went pretty much directly on top of the pool,” he said.

“It was crazy. It was the loudest thing I’ve ever heard.Even people with their heads submerged could hear it.

“It scared the absolute bejesusout of me.”

The strike caused a huge surge through the building and knocked out internet connections, phone linesand the systems controlling pool temperatures.

Mr Wilson said a few swimmers had thanked him afterwardsfor making the right call and sticking by the book.

“I was making sure I was 110 per cent on the job at the time. Imade sure Iwas standing in a position to watch the lightning at all times.”

AquaZone services manager Ray Smith praised Mr Wilson’s diligence and forward thinking.

“He was switched on and had people warned what may happen and got everyone inside quickly,” he said.

LIMBO: The future of Darren Crockett’s home club, Benalla, is in limbo.

THE futures of the Benalla and Cobram clubs remainin limbo, over a week after they were denied affiliation with the Albury-Wodonga Football Association.

The two clubs, whoare nowwithout a league to play in next year, were invited to a special meeting in Shepparton on Monday night withFootball Federation VictoriaCEO Peter Gome, general manager Matthew Annells and competitions manager Paul Marazita.

FFV runs the Shepparton-based Goulburn North East Football Association, which wants Benalla and Cobram to re-join that association.

But that’s not something Cobram president Greg Ryan wants.

“We believe the future of Cobram is in the Albury-Wodonga association,” Ryan said on Monday.

“The committee and the players believe that is still our best option.”

The FFV recently met with the Bendigo amateur league to explore a possible merger with the GNEFA.

Visitor centre mysteryObviouslytheonly thought Shoalhaven City Council has giventothe relocation oftheVisitor Information Centre (VIC)totheShoalhaven Entertainment Centre (SEC) is how muchthecurrent premises will fetch when they are sold.

Council does not know wheretheVIC will be located intheSEC, what modifications will be required, and obviously, whatthecost will be.

IftheVIC consumes 45 per centofthe tourism budget, one waytoreduce that would betomove several salaried staffto other council positions and replace them with volunteers.From my experience it is a system that works in almost every other Council area in Australia.

No indication has been giventohowthemove will reduce costs.

The tourism manager does not foresee any problems with parking attheSEC. She is wrong.Current parking spots have barely enough roomtopark a normal car or SUV let alone large recreational vehicles.

I wanttobe there whenthe tourism manager, or any other council staffer, attemptstopark a 12-metre (plus) vehicle attheSEC. Thatwould be very entertaining.

K. Cummins, NowraOne-sided debateI attendedtheBomaderry Bowling Club on November18 to watcha debate which was goingtoinclude Gilmore MPAnnSudmalis.

I feel this is a very important topic that will affect all Australians in one way or another.

I may be doing Mrs Sudmalis an injustice by being upset at her non-attendance. Perhaps there was a swimming pool that was opening.
