WHAT else could a man who had a role in the
iconic Aussie bowling movie, “Crackerjack”, say
other than “yes, we would love to!”
Sam gave a short demonstration of riding the
unicycle and showed how he is amongst the best
when it comes to rolling a bowl.
He was invited to become a member of the
Yacka Bowling Club anytime.
The lads then headed off to Gladstone, to
spend the night.
Sam said it was another amazing highlight
and special part of their trip which would not be

Back to the main event for the day, where

Yet another good sized field (31) stumbled
out for our Stableford Off The Whites round last
Saturday, while for two players, Messrs. Rob
Veitch and Merv. Hameister, the order of the day
was a Stroke round to determine the winner of the
Summer Cup. Young Rob got the better of Merv.
“Hammies” Hameister 3/2 and our congratula-
tions to both warriors for their fine performances.
Another Rob robbed his fellow A graders of
fame and fortune, that being Rob Lawson (43),
who hustled Rob Hart (38) into second place and
Ian Michael (37) to third. Facing a cold dinner
that night were W. Lokan (36), W. Parkin (35), D.
Hannaford (35) and lastly, D. Taylor (33).
The good Count was kept busy in the B grade
ranks, called on by Geoff Leo (40) to claim first spot
over Ron Carney, who in turn used the Count to
cancel Geoff McKenzie’s hopes of a 2nd placing.
Left to count their fingers and toes were M. Smith
(39), R. Hahn (38), W. Berry (37), D. Barnett (36),
J. Michael (36), G. Sonntag (33), A. Leaver (31),
D. Rodgers (29), visitors from Hamley Bridge
George Dahlitz (29) and Colin Doudle (27), then
Tania Matz (24).
His work done, the good Count then ambled
over to the C grade to lend a hand, in this case
to Austin Henstridge (44), who used his good of-
fices to jump Ian Jenkins into first place, leaving
Dean Trickett (43) to claim 3rd.. In their collective
wake trailed M. Liptrot (40), Noah Barnett (36),
M. Hahesy (33), M. Keast (30), Joan Anderson
(27) and Chris Hahesy (25).
Birdies were struck by Geoff McKenzie at the
3rd. and both Tania Matz and Don “Hairy Legs”
Hannaford at the 8th.. Nearest the Pins were
held by Noah Barnett at the 3rd., he of the hirsute
hocks at the 8th., Rob Lawson (15th) and Wild Bill
Lokan with his second shot into the 17th. Golfer
of the Summer Points were collected by Austin
Henstridge (6), Ian Jenkins (5), Rob Lawson (4),
Dean Trickett (3), Geoff Leo (2) and of course, one
each to everyone else. This Saturday we’ll hold
a Stroke round from the tiger tees, our orders of
appearance to be ordained by Mike Hahesy, while
armed with a new box of tissues, Tania Matz will
dry the eyes of any or all under-achievers at the
19th. A healthy number of players will be sorely
missed, as they trek bravely into the Riverland wild
lands hoping to bag a very rare species indeed,
the fabled Green Jacket, having rendezvoused
at the Waikerie Bakery at 11am this Friday before
playing there, then Loxton the next day and Berri

The depleted numbers for the Saturday com-
petition continued with only 10 players lining up on
9/3/13 for the stableford round perhaps due to the
hot weather & being the long weekend, however
it was a great Day for Ian Ferguson who actually
“Blitzed the field” with an incredible 46pts to win the
day from Rowland Pawlak 40 & Mick Nicholls 37
on a countback from Kieth Kluske 37 while Helen
Bell & Shane Saunders (Riverton) managed 34
to be in the better half. Birdies Rowland Pawlak

THE 2013 TV commercial was first played
at the Crows Season Launch last Tuesday night.
A special ‘making of ’ video was also played on
the night to highlight the effort and enthusiasm
of the 19th Man during the filming. Almost 200
Crows supporters, members and fans spent a
day at the club last month for the filming and
if they didn’t know all the words to Adelaide’s
song, they certainly do now! After an 8am start,
several rehearsals, face painting and some lunch,
all fans and about 25 players came together to film
the final scenes for the campaign. All fans were
fantastic on the day and cooperated with staff to
result in a great commercial. The club sincerely
thanks all who attended for their patience, en-
thusiasm and excellent effort throughout the day.
To watch the official commercial and the making
of, please visit afc.com.au.
JASON Porplyzia, Sam Shaw, Sam Kerridge
and Kyle Hartigan are all sporting new looks
after signing up for the Leukaemia Foundation’s
World’s Greatest Shave on behalf of the Crows
Foundation. Team captain Porplyzia’s appearance
didn’t change too much, but Kerridge parted with
his stylish fringe and rookie Hartigan with his
mop of curly brown hair last Thursday, March 14,
in Rundle Mall. The Leukaemia Foundation is the
Crows’ major charity partner for season 2013 and
players are trying to raise $10,000 for the cause.
Donations can be made until March 31 to the
Crows page at http://my.leukaemiafoundation.

THE Paint Horse Society of SA held a novelty day
at Owen oval on February 10, to raise funds to build an
arena at its grounds at the oval.
The group also held its annual Paint Horse State
Show last Saturday at the Mallala Equestrian Centre.
The group holds monthly training days at Owen
oval, weather permitting, except over the winter months.
Training days are primarily to help newcomers to the club
to better understand the fundamentals of western show-
ing in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment.
They also provide the opportunity for those with
young horses to get them out for the first few times
without the added pressure of showing.
Training days are also a great way to get to know
other members and to have some fun. Youth are most
welcome and encouraged to attend, and you don’t need
to own a paint horse to attend.
Cost for members is $10 per day; children under 18
free (must be member or day member); non members
$10 per day plus $10 day membership to cover insurance.
For more information on the group, visit www.
