Home' Plains Producer : Plains Producer September 17, 2014 Contents With winter sport ﬁnals nearing
an end, now’s the time to start think-
ing about summer sports.
Keep an eye out for ads for all
summer sports, which will keep you
ﬁt and provide another social aspect
to your lives!
Plenty of summer sports are
available around our district, so I
thought I’d give you some quirky
sayings about the ones around here:
Old basketballers never die, they
just go on dribbling;
Old tennis players never die, they
just lose their balls;
Old cricketers never die, they just
get bowled over;
Old golfers never die, they just
lose their drive;
Old bowlers never die, they just
end up in the gutter; and
Old swimmers never die, they
just fall off their blocks.
See, something for everyone!
Market Day is coming up this
Saturday (September 20.)
Hosted by the bowling club and
associates, the market will be held
at the bowling club carpark from
8.30am to 2pm.
There will be entertainment,
demonstrations, stalls, face painting
Entry is free, but if you’d like to
book a stall, please phone Jode on
0447 169 667.
Plans are underway for the pool’s
50th birthday celebration on Satur-
day, October 25.
A black tie dinner, complete with
band and auction, at the town hall,
has almost been sold out, even before
tickets have ofﬁcially gone on sale!
Unfortunately the Governor is
unable to attend this event, although
the Governor back in the day, did
ofﬁcially open the pool! Maybe he’ll
come for the centenary?
Gavin and Josie Kain arrived
home from an overseas holiday a
few weeks ago and almost kissed
They were in Russia at the time
the Malaysia Airlines plane was
shot down, but luckily weren’t on it!
These incidents always make
you shudder and think “What if....?”
Glad you two arrived home safe
Tarlee markets are coming up
on October 6 from 8.30am to 3pm
at the oval.
There’ll be lots of stalls and the
primary school will be having a
display of student work.
The school will also have a bar-
becue and would love some helpers.
Market day organisers also would
like some help, so please contact
John Tayler or Frank Gorey.
The town will soon look col-
ourful, as students have received
feedback from the community about
their stobie pole designs.
Designs have been modified
where necessary, and students are
now scaling them up ready for paint-
ing in the next week or so.
We look forward to seeing the
It appears angle parking might be
the new thing along Railway terrace
After stopping early one morning
at a local business, a local man left
his car running (a Ford not a Mazda
BT) jumped out and went inside,
without putting the car into “park.”
When he emerged from the
building, he went into a mad panic,
carrying on like a crazy supporter
after Hawthorn won their ﬁnal last
week, as his car was missing, as-
Upon further inspection, our man
found it - quite some distance away,
on the other side of the road, in a
reversed angled parking position
under the pine trees!
Luckily no-one was out deliver-
ing anything that morning, or they
may have been stamped out! Hope-
fully he’s learned his lesson and will
leave his car in “P” next time.
Don’t forget! Tomorrow night
(Thursday) is your chance to at-
tend an informative free seminar
to help educate you on prostate
cancer, and possible post treatment
While many men don’t have
any problems after surgery or treat-
ments, others can have trouble with
incontinence or erectile dysfunction.
(Viagra could possibly help!)
Anyway, the event will provide
an opportunity for the community
to learn, share their experiences
and ask questions about prostate
So don’t bury your head in the
sand, and get along to the town hall
lounge from 6.30pm, for a 7pm start.
