"EVEN seeing the struggles your own kids
have, you can be more sympathetic of others.
"Coaching today needs a holistic approach,
it’s not one size fts all any more.”
Hart said the direction of the club was also
"It's coming to the realisation that the long
term future of the club is based on investing as
much as it can on locals as much possible and
that's not just providing a good environment with
good people but also means coaching them as
well as they can,” he said.
"So while it is trying to hang on to the good
that has happened this year, it is also making
further investment in retaining those local players
and keep both these things going simultaneously.
"Some of the players here are also at the stage
where they'll be looking to coach in three or four
years, so I'm keen to provide some mentoring
and help in that process too.”
The club is holding a meet the coach and train-
ing day on Sunday at Hamley Bridge from 2pm.
Hart hoped to begin preseason training proper
in January, as guided by the playing group.
The ladies joined in with the hordes of
men to play a stroke round last Wednes-
day, and to spice things up, everyone also
had to count putts.
And with some ladies playing Summer
Cup matches also, the poor handicapper
didn't know what was going on, with what
appeared to be three types of competition
at once on some scorecards.
Winner of the stroke round with a nett
69, was Moya Hayes.
Louise Michael was runner up on 70,
followed by Joan Anderson 72, Josie
Thompson 73, Cathy Redpath 75 and
Genni Edwards 84.
Winner of the putts competition was
Louise Michael on 23 putts, a vast im-
provement from her previous Saturday's
putts of 32.
Nearest the pin on number 8 was
Louise for A grade, while the B and C
graders were only just off apparently!
Summer Cup matches played saw
Joan defeat Josie 2/1 and Louise defeat
Moya on the 19th!
Next week will be a Stableford round,
and captain Jill has said Summer Cup
matches can be extended if necessary
to juggle the hot weather.
The ladies enjoyed a noisy but
wonderful day out yesterday, heading by
bus to the Barossa for their Christmas
And the trading table last Friday was
a roaring success, so a huge thankyou to
everyone who cooked or donated goods,
and organised and worked at the stall.
BALAKLAVA MID WEEK
A rowdy crowd of 17 masculine mid
weekers played a stroke round last week,
complete with counting putts.
The swab testing machine was out
for our favourite pie eater, Bill Berry, who
won with a nett 64.
However his wasn't the only good
score, with Rick Campbell second on
66 and Dean Trickett third on 67.
Others in the mix were Mike Newton
68, John Boon 69, Barrie Thompson
70, Brian Stewart, Wim Delvendiep and
Malcolm Jones 71, John Michael, Greg
Sonntag and Bill "Who ate my pasty -
again?" Goudie 72, Dene Newton 73,
Geoff Gardner 75, with Colin Mutton and
Phil Button being gluttons, having more
strokes than they'd like!
Putting competition was won by Mike
Newton on 28 on a countback from Bill
Berry, Bill Goudie, John Michael and
Nearest the pins were won by Dean
Trickett on 3, John Michael on 8 and Dean
again on 10. But we won't mention how
many putts Dean had on 10!
Birdies were won by Dene Newton
and John Michael on 15, Barrie Thomp-
son 9, Mike Newton 12 and Malcolm
Jones 7 and 14.
Next week is back to a stableford
round, and hopefully no-one will eat

of summer cup to be postponed.
The second round of the Summer

One could certainly question our cur-

forecast is 36 degrees or more) as we
start at 8 am through the summer and last
Saturday the temperature only reached
29 degrees while the competition would

Curnow was selected in the
team of the carnival at the
recent Under 12 Country
Cup in Adelaide.
Cameron is pictured after
he made his frst 50, which
was unbeaten in a match
against Yorke Peninsula.
He was also keeper for
this game with one caught
behind and one stumping,
while he managed to take
two wickets and was given
the match ball.
In a solid week's cricket, he
also made a half-century
against Upper North.

The week started well
with the side winning both
20/20 matches played on
The morning match
against Eyre Peninsula
saw YP post 7/100 batting
frst. Lachlan Dolling(12)
opened the innings well.
A shaky top order
collapse was halted by a
strong partnership of 49
between Archer Rown-
tree(31) and Alex Elswor-
thy(8). Dylan Branford
contributed a well-made
11 down the order.
bowling spells from James
Reuther, 0-14 from 4 overs
and Lachlan Dolling, 2-9
from four, set up the pat-
tern of restrictive bowling
and felding for the day.
The afternoon match
against Lower South East
saw a strong score of
6/95. Fraser Agnew(19),
and Lachlan Dolling(10)
all contributing through
the upper and mid order.
James Reuther followed
up his morning effort with
2/0 from 2. Wickets also
to Fraser Agnew(2/3),
Tom Michael(1/4), Wes
Goldsmith(1/5) and Harry
LSE to 8/38
Tuesday's games were
much more competitive,
unfortunately both going
against the YP boys.
Batting first against
Barossa & Light, after
15 overs were just 2/39.
However, the YP boys
were able to take advan-
tage of some lapses in
the feld to steal 50 runs
off the last fve overs and
post a competitive 6/89.
James Reuther(37), Kai
Newbold(17) and Dylan
ward bowling and poor
felding let the team down
and allowed B&L 2/120.
Amuch stronger bowl-
ing/felding effort in the
afternoon saw Mid North
post 1/85. Notably, Wes
Goldsmith snared 1/8 from
two overs and showed
an excellent display of
runs. The chase for runs
began well with openers
James Reuther(14) and
Fraser Agnew(11) hit-
ting 28 from four overs.
Dylan Branford batted
through the innings from
1st wicket down to score
22. Archer Rowntree(10)
contributed in the middle

fell short at 6/81.
match v Fleurieu North
Once again batting
frst, the innings started
steadily with James Re-
uther and Fraser Agnew's
opening partnership of
28 from 11 overs. James
Reuther's innings of 46
was pleasing to watch.
The conservative batting
resulted in some hesitant
running between wickets
eventually seeing three run
outs. The innings closed at
91 with 7 unused overs.
All boys bowled con-
sistently through the 40
overs but were unable to
restrict FN to the low target
score. FN 6/137. Archer
Rowntree took 4 wickets
