ANTIBIOTIC Awareness Week (November 18-
25) highlighted global concerns over the use of
antibiotics in food-producing animals.
Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) presi-
dent, Dr Ben Gardiner, said proper care of animals
is critical to their health and welfare and antibiotics
can be a part of providing the care animals need.
“Many agricultural industries have changed
how they look after animals so they can reduce
antibiotic use but there will always be some risk of
infection and we need to be able to use antibiotics
when needed,” he said.
There are some precautions that can be taken
to reduce the spread of resistant bugs.
“Australia has very good food safety standards in
place for the processing of raw food products but
we need to ensure hygienic food preparation from
retail purchase to plate, including proper cooking
of animal products, to minimise the risk of transfer
of bacterial resistance from food to people.
“Close collaboration is essential,” Dr Gardiner
Twenty-eight toilers turned out last Saturday for
a Stroke round and the last of the first Summer Cup
rounds. As well, we welcomed visitors Keith Price and
Rob Gordon. Mark Loy defeated Murray “Smudger” Smith
2 & 1, Louise Michael jumped Josie Thompson 6 & 4,
while Martyn Bell slid right on through due to a forfeit.
In the A grade Doug Taylor’s very handy 80/68 was
enough, with the good Count, to knock Mark Loy (79/68)
into second place, leaving the damaging Don “Hairy
Legs” Hannaford (78/69) to claim third. Then came T.
Michael (79/70), W. Lokan (81/70) and I. Michael (84/75).
Bill “New Sticks” Berry (80/61) buried the B graders,
while Smudger (88/71) used the Count to crush Ron Car-
ney (86/71). They were trailed in by R. Gordon (88/74),
W. Goudie (90/74), W. Nagle (91/76) and A. Leaver
(101/81) while D. Barnett just disappeared in a cloud of
Brad Michael (98/62) crashed the C grade, but the
dear Count was hauled out yet again, this time by the
dastardly Digby Addison (88/67) to hoik young Noah Bar-
nett (103/67) into third spot. This left us with J. Michael
(92/71), Louise Michael (95/73), (Josie Thompson’s score
looks like 98/73 with a h’cap of 31 - we’ll just move on),
Tania Matz (101/79), P. Friedrichs (107/79), C. Heslop
(117/82), M. Keast (117/87), K. Price (112/88) and M.
Bell (118/88). Derek Friedrichs turned a few heads with
his 88, still in search of a handicap, while Greg Sonntag
flagged afore the finish.
Mark Loy smote the sole Birdie, on the eighth and
held the Nearest The Pin to boot. NTPs were also held by
Rob Gordon on the third, Hairy Legs at the 10th, Digby
Addison the 15th and for a special second smash to the
17th, Louise Michael. Golfer of the Summer points went
to Bill Berry (6), Digby Addison (5), Noah Barnett (4),
Doug Taylor (3), Mark Loy (2) and the dregs, just one
This Saturday we’ll stage the Ham & Turkey two-
person Ambrose which will set you back a cool $20 for
both the round and a major nosh-up afterwards. Graham
“Emu” Ackland, if he’s back from hols, will start things off,
while we remain ever-hopeful that Greg Anderson will
person the 19th.
A reminder to all members of the special meeting to
be held on Monday December 9 at 6-30pm at the club to
discuss Constitution changes. All invited to attend.
BALAKLAVA MID WEEK
Not even Death Valley conditions could prevent seven
stoics from heading out last Wednesday, with Rob Veitch
having the best day of the lot.
Not only did he defeat Bill Berry 4 & 2 in their round of
the Summer Cup but his score of 38, according to
The Little Book, also put him atop the podium. Odd
that, because T.L .B . then records Bill Goudie coming
second with “39”.
John Clark coming third with 32 sounds alright
Poor old Bill “New Clubs” Berry limped in with 28
points, but did better than the three little melted grease-
spots who DNF’d, those brave souls being Genni Ed-
wards, Greg Sonntag and Dean Trickett.
Some of us had more brains and spent the day out on
MORE than $5000 was raised for
the Little Heroes Foundation thanks
to the Sevenhill Cricket Club’s annual
Charity Twenty20 Big Bash, held
over the weekend.
An internal Stanley Cricket As-
sociation match was held on Saturday
morning, teams made up of play-
ers from the Plains (Lower North,
Blyth/Kybunga, Long Plains and
Brinkworth/Koolunga) taking on the
Valleys (Clare, Sevenhill, Watervale
The Valleys batted first, notching
up 147, including scores of 34 to Mi-
chael Dopson and 29 to Stuart Pike.
Jamie McArdle bowled well for
the Plains, taking 2/15 from three
In response, the Plains smashed
their way to victory, Heath Pym (39)
and Ryan McPharlin (26) doing most
of the damage.
Brad Gay (2/27), Daniel Minney
(2/25) and Stuart Pike (2/14) were the
best of the Valleys bowlers.
It was a highly skilled match with
two good line-ups.
The following encounter between
the Sevenhill Pub and Sevenhill
Cricket Club went the way of the
Ben Hook soldiered his way to a
respectable 43 retired but he was the
only Pub batsman to star, posting a
meagre total of 129, Stuart Pike doing
the damage with 2/20.
The Club team annihilated the
total, Dan Reynolds smashing a quick
50 before retiring, while Patrick McI-
nerney was solid with 26, Mark Inglis
and Pike also notching up 20 each,
finishing with a team total of 144.
Mark Tyler and Paul Longbottom
claimed two wickets.
The sportsmens night held at the
Sevenhill Hotel hosted more than
90 people, who were treated to a
three-course meal and some great
entertainment from Tim Ginever and
The dinner was followed by an
auction, which raised $5000.
“It was a well-supported event on
the Friday but it would have been
nice to see a few more there on the
Saturday,” Stanley Cricket Associa-
tion president, Scott Smith said.
