to the 70s. The hay bale people - at the Western entrance to the town have embraced the theme. Theyre opposite Crossroads Trading, who helped to build the people with their forklift. Theyre three round bales altogether, so theyre pretty high. The Wombat Arts Network organised it again but the Ballan First Scouts and Cubs Group helped in decorating them. Theres a male and female and theyre looking like theyve gone back to the 70s!, said Festival Chairperson Helen Tatchell. The festivals annual parade will feature local schools along with the Creswick Light Horse Brigade, a brass band, community groups and oats celebrating the 70s theme. The 39th annual Ballan Art Show will also be held in conjunction with the festival. The festival will also feature the popular Pet Show, to be judged by Moorabools Mayor, along with the return of the woodchop event, which some competitors use to qualify and practice for the Sydneys Royal Easter Show competition.

By Kate Taylor The much-loved icons of Ballans Autumn Festival - the hay bale people are back for another year.

Off and running


By Jessica Howard After almost a year of waiting, 5-year-old Cooper Van Der Molen has nally received his new set of wheels. The Van Der Molen family has been raising money for the purchase of his new wheelchair since mid 2013, in the hope of giving him as much independence as possible (as reported in The Moorabool News, 20/08/2013). The young Maddingley resident suffers from a form of ectodermal dysplasia, a disorder that affects the hair, nails, sweat glands and teeth. The disorder means Cooper is unable to sweat a problem which has seen him admitted to hospital a countless number of times. The Van Der Molens held a trivia night called Wheels for Cooper last September at St Bernards Hall in Bacchus Marsh, which his mother, Lisa Van Der Molen Government) covered most of the costs, but the Van Der Molens were still $5000 short. Ms Van Der Molen says Coopers wheelchair has made a huge difference in their lives, with Cooper attending Ballarat Special School this year; he has a lot more independence. It is something that words cannot describe. Cooper no longer has to sit around waiting, he has his independence, which is what every mum wants for their family, Ms Van Der Molen said. Just the other day in the supermarket he tried to run off on me, She laughed. When he takes off, its like seeing your child take their rst steps. I couldnt be more proud. The generosity has been amazing, and I would really like to thank absolutely everyone who donated and made this possible, she said.

New crop pops up


By Kate Taylor Moorabool is home to a trial crop of opium poppies. Woodlands Ward Councillor Pat Toohey conrmed that a trial of the highly regulated plant is currently underway in the shire but would not specify where. The Department of Environment and Primary Industries is overseeing the trials which are taking part across the state and is also remaining tight-lipped on specic locations. Tasmania currently produces about half of the worlds supply of opium derived from alkaloid poppies, which is used in the manufacture of drugs such as morphine and codeine. Cr Toohey explained that if growing the poppies in Moorabool proves successful, it could open up a whole new crop for local farmers. Were very pleased to be part of the trial to grow poppies - it could be a very signicant opportunity for our farmers in the future. He said that poppies enjoy a fertile soil with high spring rainfall which many parts of Moorabool have and would not require any more irrigation than other crops already grown. It is a very similar area to Tasmania where they grow them, so were certainly hoping therell be positive outcomes not only for farmers in Moorabool but for the state of Victoria. Cr Toohey explained that adding a viable crop such

By Kate Taylor Democracy will be live and in action this week at Elaine. Moorabool Shire Council will hold its monthly council meeting in the town and locals are being encouraged to attend. To be held on Wednesday 5 March from 5pm at the Community Hall, the meeting will give locals an opportunity to ask a question during public question time and register to speak on an agenda item, if they wish to. West Moorabool ward Councillor Tom Sullivan said the night will provide residents of Elaine and surrounds a chance to see how council operates. Councillors are keen to take council to smaller communities in recognition of the diverse nature of the municipality. Council has scheduled four of its 2014 meetings at smaller towns throughout the Shire, which provides people greater access to meetings and allows them a better opportunity to participate and have their say.

Competitions will be run for the best apple pie and the best veggie patch, along side the Lions Club Train Orchard Tours and the everpopular gumboot throw. The not for prot Tourism Association is offering two bus tours which will take guests through the historic Bacchus Marsh Avenue of honour, meeting growers and tasting produce along the way. The 2014 tour also includes two exclusive farm-gates along Werribee Vale Road, which are otherwise not open to the public. Bacchus Marsh Tourism Association President, David Durham encourages local families and their visiting friends and relatives to come along and to ensure they book seats on the bus. Alternatively, its very easy to follow along in your car and still meet the growers, otherwise to pick up a copy of the event program, he said. As the event celebrates its 8th birthday, the Annual Grape Stomp will be brought into the Bacchus Marsh town centre. Our event program in 2014 is as strong as ever, with more exciting details yet to be announced, Mr Durham said.

Turning wheels for chairty


By Jessica Howard Bacchus Marsh cyclists will be getting on their bikes for charity this March to raise money for life threatening medical conditions. Russell Gilbert will undertake a gruelling ride from Sydney to Gold Coast to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research and Autism Spectrum Disorder. This will be the ninth time Mr Gilbert has taken part in the annual Rotary 1,000 kilometre ride heading north from Sydney through Northern NSW onto the Gold Coast. With 35 bike riders and three support teams, the team goal is to raise $100,000. We usually raise between $60-70,000 each year, but this year we have challenged ourselves, Mr Gilbert said. Since 1999 the annual Rotary Ride has raised almost a million dollars for a number of local charities and hospitals with a strong focus on health research. The ride is a great way to promote the chosen charities and with the help of the community, a huge difference can be made to the lives of many men and women, Mr Gilbert said. Meanwhile, a team of four; Danny Humphrey, Adam Humphrey, Ben Humphrey and Mathew Minney, are riding from Bathurst to Melbourne over nine days to raise some much needed funds for Make-AWish Australia. The Bacchus Marsh residents will begin the ride on March 21st from Bathurst. The team was created to make a difference by giving to the people who need it most. A goal of $20,000 worth of donations has been set, and so far the public has generously given over $1,500. Since its inception on Australia 28 years ago, Make-AWish Australia has granted over 7,000 wishes to children across the country.

Underbank housing or farming?


By Kate Taylor A proposed residential development at Underbank will next week be one step closer towards an ofcial decision. Moorabool Councillors will discuss the issue at a Special Meeting of Council on Tuesday 11 March. They will vote on whether to refer submissions received regarding Moorabool Planning Scheme Amendment C62 to a Planning Panel, which would be appointed by the Minister for Planning. Amendment C62 is the Planning title of the rezoning proposal Council is being asked to consider to have the Underbank Stud Farm in Bacchus Marsh rezoned so it can be developed into housing. The meeting will be held at the Supper Room, Bacchus Marsh, commencing at 5.00pm and Council has invited interested members of the public to attend. Moorabool Shire Mayor Paul Tatchell acknowledged the keen interest in the proposal. He said the meeting is one of many opportunities the community will have during the process to learn more about the proposal and the decision making process. Community Feedbacks an important component in Councils decision making. In fact Underbank was originally scheduled for the ordinary meeting of council in Elaine, but we felt it signicant enough to hold off a week and have a special meeting about it amongst the local community most directly impacted by whatever decisions we make. Cr Tatchell said that should Council decide to refer it to a Panel, community members will then be able to submit their views on Underbank to the Panel. The nal agenda and further information will be published on Councils website www.moorabool.vic.gov.au and will be available on request at Council Customer service centres prior to the Special Meeting. Any member of the public wishing to speak at the meeting is advised to contact council prior to the day on 5366 7100 or info@moorabool.vic.gov.au

Celebrating memories and friends


By Jessica Howard Local Ballan resident, Len Missen has celebrated his 90th birthday at his Ruemera Park farm home. With 65 people attending the celebrations from Rockbank, Ballan and Bacchus Marsh, Len enjoyed the day under the marquees last month. Luckily it was a really nice day, and it was great to see all the old ones again, he said. Len was born on February 8, 1924 and lived most of his years on a farm in Rockbank, before moving to his 600 acre farmland in Ballan in 1988. He has resided there for the past 25 years. Married to the late Betty Missen, they shared two sons, Lee and Gary, and three grandchildren. Betty passed away in 2009, and he now lives on his property with a 14 year-old kelpie cross, called Tippy. A Footscray Football Club fanatic, Len played football for his local team in Rockbank, where he won three premierships and was the only ever playing president. He played Country Week tennis at Kooyong for 20 years, and occasionally in Bacchus Marsh, where he played an exhibition match with the great Frank Sedgman, a winner of 22 Grand Slam titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. Today, on Friday nights, Len meets with a group of friends from around the area to wine and dine together in various foodie places. The group also enjoy a Sunday BBQ on Lens property. We go everywhere, he said. There used to be ten of us, but now there is only eight. Its a just a good way to catch up with each other on a regular basis. Len says he enjoys living in Ballan and catching up with friends and Len Missen celebrated his 90th birthday with family and friends and enjoys the company of his 14 year old dog Tippy.

More than 50 entries to the Art on the Ballarat Train Competition are now on display at the Ballan Railway Station. Poetry, drawing and painting, and altered photographs are exhibited in the waiting rooms and the signal box windows. Entrants range in age from six to 103, with wonderfully creative work from all. Commuters were invited to submit work created on the train, about the train, in December and January, using traditional or digital tools. As the train turned into a bus for most of this period, entrants have been especially lateral in their approach. Prizes were vouchers for Ballan retailers. All entries are on display. The works will be on display at the station until 20 March, and then they will be moved to the Mechanics Hall for an exhibition at the Ballan Autumn Festival on Sunday 23 March.

Call for indigenous youth


By Jessica Howard Passionate Indigenous Australians aged 16 to 25 are being urged to apply for a youth parliament project to be held in May. The National Indigenous Youth Parliament Program (NIYP) allows for 50 young Indigenous Australians to travel to Canberra, to learn directly from the people making the decisions that affect their communities. AEC Victorian Indigenous Community Engagement Ofcer, Darren Williams believes it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. There are no specic skills or experience required. We hope young Indigenous Australians from Victoria who are passionate about issues and willing to have a say will seize this great opportunity, Mr Williams said. Theyll get expert training in public speaking and in dealing with the media, and theyll meet members of Parliament and other national leaders. NIYP will be held from 28 May to 3 June 2014. The centrepiece of the program is a two-day simulated parliament in the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House where participants will debate bills and important issues. Young Indigenous Australians aged 16 to 25 must apply no later than Monday 10 March 2014. Participants will be chosen based on their ideas and interest in government and parliament and their potential leadership skills. Application forms are at www.aec.gov.au/Indigenous.

Video conferencing units will be set up at council ofces in Ballan, Darley and Lerderderg Library to enable users to interact online with council ofcers to discuss and resolve their enquiries from their homes and businesses. It can potentially be used for alternative communication in a variety of Council interactions, said Council CEO Rob Croxford. The technology is anticipated to be of best use in situations previously requiring residents to travel into Councils Customer service centres for face-to-face con-

King asked to leave


By Kate Taylor Member for Ballarat Catherine King was asked to leave the parliamentary Chamber last week after refusing to withdraw comments deemed unparliamentary. Her comments came after controversy emerged surrounding Alastair Furnival, a former Chief of Staff to the Liberal assistant health Minister, who was in the employ of the company Cadbury when Tony Abbot announced funding for the company last year as an election promise. The $16 million tourism infrastructure grant to Cadbury was ofcially announced last week. Mr Furnival was also revealed to have sponsored Mr Abbot in the Pollie Pedal event. Ms King said in parliament: Pollie Pedal, sponsored by Cadbury. There are photos of the Prime Minister and the former chief of staff, teammates together. The Member for Bass objected to the comments and Ms King was asked to leave the Chamber for one hour after refusing the Chairs request for her to withdraw. A spokesperson for Ms King said that Catherine did not believe the statement was unparliamentary as it was a statement of fact. The speaker however in the interests of maintaining order in the chamber asked her to withdraw and she regretfully declined. The spokesperson pointed out that Labor MPs were directed to leave on ten occasions last week - some more than once - but that no Government MPs were directed to leave.

sultation and explanation. Many residents nd it a challenge to physically get to Council and there are only so many staff available to access them at their home or workplace -so this becomes an attractive option in those cases. The roll-out is due to begin soon. Were keen to maintain a high standard of Customer Service, so while this technology is being rolled out, staff will be training to use it effectively. After the initial training and testing, a pilot programme is scheduled to begin by mid-March. This is for

staff dealing with planning enquiries and staff that manage the new mums and early years programs. Assuming the pilot is successful, the video conferencing option will be expanded to a much wider range of enquiries and programmes by mid-year. Moorabool Mayor Paul Tatchell said the use of the technology is exciting. This will connect council ofcers and the community in a way that has not been possible here before and we are looking forward to being able to offer video conferencing as a way of communication, he said. Along with video confer-

encing, a new GIS mapping service will improve access to planning and location services. A link will be provided on councils website that will enable access to information such as land parcel size, planning zones, places of interest, community facilities and road information. We are hoping that the implementation of these services will enable residents to gain information more effectively and reduce increasing demand on Councils Customer Service team as Moorabool Shires population continues to grow, Mayor Tatchell said.

Flanagans Border Inn ST. PATRICKS DAY APPROACHING

March 2014

Flanagans border Inn opened in 1850, in one of Victorias historical towns, Bacchus Marsh. The border inn was essentially the means for the town to come into existence. In 1851 it became the first coach stop on the road to the Ballarat gold diggings (and thus the first coach-stop in the state) and Bacchus Marsh essentially developed around this traffic. Today it is still an icon in the town and on the 17th March 2014 holds the traditional St. Patricks Day celebrations. From 6pm Brodie from 2fat2skate will be entertaining the patrons. Special meal nights are held throughout the week, Monday is Burger Night, Wednesday is Pie Night, Thursday is Steak Night and Friday Night is Fish and Chips. All are a low $12 with the exception of Steak Night being $14. Flanagans weekend hours are 12pm - 3pm and 6pm - 9pm Saturday, with Sunday meals available from 12pm - 8pm.

Urgent need for Blackwood to be mobile
In case of fire call?
By Kate Taylor Moorabool has put its best foot forward in the ght for a piece of the Federal Governments $100 million funding program to x mobile phone blackspots throughout Australia. Council is lobbying the government and negotiating with telecommunications providers, as well as having made a submission to the funding program for more telecommunications infrastructure. In this day and age, people expect to be able to contact others when needed I mean some of these blackspots are a stones throw from Melbourne, Mayor Paul Tatchell said. If we can convince the Federal Government to build some mobile infrastructure in our shire, it becomes feasible for the commercial operators to provide a mobile service in these areas they have previously ignored. He said that competition for the Federal Government program will be intense however, as approximately 75 per cent of the continent is eligible to apply for the funding. Mayor Tatchell estimates that will cover about 200- 250 locations Australia-wide. Consequently Mayor Tatchell doesnt expect all locations on the Shires mobile telecommunication priority list to be funded by the Federal Government Programme, but says he is encouraged by the support of other stakeholders regarding the importance of improving mobile coverage in the Shire. Everywhere I go, all levels of government seem more aware of the urgency of getting mobile coverage to places like Blackwood, so the lobbying by council and the community is starting to take effect. Woodlands Ward Councillor Pat Toohey has advocated for some time to have better mobile phone reception particularly in Blackwood, identied as a bushre hotspot, and said that at the recent opening of the new re station and community re refuge building in the town, Premier Dennis Napthine and Emergency Services Minister Kim Wells gave verbal support for improvements. Speaking at the opening last month, Premier Napthine said the mobile phone service in many of our re prone areas is a serious issue that the Victorian government is very concerned about. We have already taken up directly with the Federal Government the need to improve mobile service in areas across the state, and I will certainly be taking up the issue of the Blackwood community. The Abbott government have allocated $100 million dollars to x mobile service in key areas of high risk and certainly Blackwood should be up there on the top of that list. Cr Toohey said that providing mobile phone coverage in Blackwood is a priority especially with the bushre risk faced in the area. Its extremely important many people come here for holidays and to visit, and they expect their mobile phones to work. Its critical to be able to warn people of an imminent threat, and thats also a VicRoads road with a lot of heavy transport on it. Its a very critical area - the whole area through Dales Creek, Blackwood, and Greendale, its very important we get support from the Federal and State Governments for the $100 million put aside for blackspot funding. Labor member for Ballarat Catherine King said she is concerned that $100 million will not go far enough. I have written directly to Malcolm Turnbull to raise mobile coverage across many towns including areas of Moorabool. Communities in high risk re areas should certainly have priority. The Abbott Government have raised community expectations with their Mobile Coverage Programme that they now need to deliver. I am concerned however that the funding allocation will mean that many of these communities will miss out.

To get mobile reception at Blackwood is difficult, it all depends where you stand as Mayor Tatchell demonstrates. Photo - submitted

similar issues working with Council Ofcers. Like the other Chairs we were frustrated by the lack of operating dollars afforded to managing the park passive recreation areas. The funding the mayor and council ofcers refer to comes from grant monies. I believe a super committee has merit, but I would leave the Race Course Committee as a functioning Committee but include the Hub Oval at Darley where 10s of thousands of dollars have been spent on substandard facilities with no consultation with the sporting clubs that have used that facility for many years prior to the Council moving in. Even with one super committee I will be interested to see who within the community is willing to work with council ofcers who have not been able to convince community and sporting club members in the last three years to join these committees, and up until last week are still calling me in relation to proposed maintenance at Darley Park. Until Council ofcers do their job - and that is to lter bureaucratic noise and reduce the red tape before it gets to these voluntary sporting clubs and committees - there will be no one willing to participate, and why should they when between the current clubs things have progressed without a committee and without User Agreements between these sporting clubs and Council. I think the Mayor needs to attend the individual sporting committee meetings to get a feel for the real issues rather than provide an outline about what council has provided from the same people that have forced these community sporting clubs and reserves into this predicament.

Dear Editor,

problems due to noise. This state has the worlds most draconian restrictions on wind farm development (supported by a tiny but vocal minority, often in the Letters page here). Our federal government has appointed a review committee into the Renewable Energy Target that looks more like a lynch mob than a review. Choosing not to allow clean renewable energy is choosing coal. This mine re is the worst of the worst of coal, but its part of the package. Lets bear that in mind when our government seeks to restrict the options that could reduce our dependence on the worlds dirtiest fuel. Ben Courtice Maddingley Dear Editor, Wasnt it interesting that, in recent Talk down the Toll advertising, we got the usual annual encouragement to choose safer vehicles to buy for our young folks off to Uni, but the list didnt include any models by Ford or Holden? Then again, does it make sense to encourage the car habit, when its so expensive, in so many ways? How about we try harder with public transport, with passes and lobbying for encouragement from government, to save enormous amounts wasted on roads and car parks and foreign debt to buy cars and foreign debt for petrol and.and. Bernie McComb Cowes

Currently, the Hazelwood coalmine is burning, and probably will for weeks to come. Once coal seams catch re, they are very hard to put out. Residents in nearby towns, especially Morwell, have seen their Air Quality Index top 1300. The level at which it is considered very poor is 150. This index is a measure of various pollutants, which include dangerous levels of the toxic gas carbon monoxide; and high levels of particulate pollution in the PM10 and PM2.5 categories (and no doubt smaller particles, too). These particulates are a direct danger to health, as they are breathed deep into the lungs - especially the ner particles and can be a serious health risk for people with existing lung and heart diseases. Children, whose lungs are still developing, are also at great risk. Some particles can be carcinogenic, so there is no safe level of exposure. I feel for the people of Morwell, and its incredible that the mine operator GDF Suez allowed this to happen. Moorabool residents would do well to reect on this. The same risk of re is present in any exposed coal seam, on top of the inevitable year-round dust. Lets make sure we dont get another coal mine in our shire. This disaster is in stark contrast to the latest report of the National Health and Medical Research Council, which has found (yet again) zero evidence that wind farms cause health

Dear Editor, I am absolutely disgusted by the councils decision to cut family day care as it is seen as running at a loss. I was on that waiting list for 18 months for family daycare as theres no child care places in Bacchus Marsh. The impact this has had on my family has felt like watching dominos fall. We were a single income family caring for three children, now I am a single parent family, I have been unemployed for 7 years as I have been the primary carer of my disabled son and now a toddler. Now I really need childcare especially before and after school care which family daycare can provide. Its also better for kids with disabilities to get more one to one care compared to a large childcare centre. This removal of family daycare is just going to make it harder for Mums trying to return to work or study and respite care for carers. Think about the social cost to families before you axe this service. Thats the real cost you need to consider. Jacqui Mitchell Darley Dear Editor, I read with disappointment the Response from Mayor in relation to Anger over park consultation (MN 18/02/2014). I was the last Chair at Darley Park and resigned for a couple of reasons but the prime reason was the lack of assistance from Council in cutting through red tape.

Environmental Opinion
problems and, coming in at no 14, climate change. So, it seems, it is little wonder the current federal government is only too happy to ignore any attempt to face climate change and why the term is not mentioned in polite society. It is just not on the radar. In the environmental concerns climate change comes in at number seven, behind household waste. Again it is removed from our awareness and, because the media often centres on immediate and catchy news, the many and varied impacts of climate change do not serve medias purpose. And then there are the vested interests. On a brighter side some are much more aware now of the many environmental issues we are facing. For example in north-west NSW hundreds of people - farmers, families, traditional owners, and other community members - are currently risking arrest to join protests at the site of a proposed coal seam gas project in the Pilliga forest. This project - the Narrabri Gaseld - would have a devastating effect on the land, water quality, and wildlife of NSW. The proponents of this project - mining company Santos - are pushing ahead with this development despite the many risks it poses. And it seems some Australians who own shares in Santo are seriously looking at their shares. They want to see their company doing the right thing. Many people protesting in north west NSW are farmers. They are asking Santos CEO David Knox to honour his promise: Under this company I operate, if you dont want me on your land to drill a well, I will not be coming. And closer to home a large zone of land, running from Highton to Anglesea, is currently under licence for gas exploration. On a recent Saturday a local group called Frack Free Geelong, who are opposed to gas exploration and mining in the region, marked out a section of the zone with hazard tape. As weve seen from overseas and interstate, fracking poses serious threats to our health, drinking water, rivers, farmland, and other industries, particularly tourism, said Elizabeth Packett, spokesperson for Frack Free Geelong. We want to raise awareness of this issue in our region by physically marking

Attitude survey has cause for concern


The CSIRO has just released its Fourth Annual Survey of Australian Attitudes to Climate Change (Interim Report, Leviston et al, CSIRO, Jan. 2014 - Public Attitudes to the Environment) in which survey respondents were asked to rank a set of general concerns and a set of environmental concerns in order of most important to least important. The ndings are just about as serious a cause for concern as the current climate change crisis is. The general concerns in this CSIRO survey in order of importance to the people who completed this survey were: health, the cost of living, employment, education, the economy, crime and justice, electricity prices, affordable housing, water, the natural environment, government and politics, drug out an area where a potential gas eld could lie. People will be shocked to learn that its on the same land as private homes, businesses, churches, kindergartens, sports clubs, Deakin University and even the Highton Cemetery. The state moratorium against fracking, which runs until June 2015, does not protect us from exploration drilling. The mining companies could start that any day, and if they nd gas, you can be assured they will do everything they can to extract it. The exploration drilling in itself is a huge investment costing millions of dollars for which these companies will expect a return. Gas mining is a choice, and if we choose to go down that road, we are locking ourselves into continued fossil fuel addiction for decades. According to the latest peer-reviewed climate science, this is the last thing we should be doing. We have other choices. There is no shortage of sun or wind in our area, explained Elizabeth Packett. When we read of the lack of concern over climate change we can become despondent but then when we read about the good number of local people ghting for their land and on behalf of the coming generations then we can see hope. Or am I optimistic? being too

What does RAM do?

$110

Full Service*

CAR RV memory TRUCKisTYRES How much enough? The more RAM the better performance. It pays to have SPECIALIST BALANCING as much RAM as your computer can cope with. All computers ship with a specied amount of RAM, and most BATTERIES & ALIGNMENT mother boards have extra capacity to install additional
RAM. Even new computers can take extra RAM

Your computer uses Random Access Memory (RAM) to hold program code and process instructions that you give your software when computing. When you turn your computer off, RAM loses the data that was used during the computing session. When you restart your computer the data from the operating system and the programs you start is once again loaded into the computers RAM. (Although modern RAM still retains small portions of data as either dynamic DRAM or static SDRAM.)

A 20/20 challenge
The Under 14 teams from Ballan and Darley Cricket Clubs gathered for the inaugural 20/20 Challenge. Darley batted rst and ended their innings with a score of 107. With Ballan unable to reach the required total, the Darley boys took the shield home for their clubroom wall. Both sides had some very good batting and bowling throughout the game, with some of the Ballan boys gaining experience on a turf pitch for the rst time. Ballan coach Mick Loughnane said the match was very successful and that it was a great opportunity for both Ballan and Darley to play in a higher class of cricket and also to bring both clubs closer together.

Final score - Avenue65 lost Ballan 70 In midweek pennant Avenue Division 3 are into the grand nal after defeating Invermay by 38 shots.

The side now takes on Smeaton in an attempt to win the holy grail and hopefully earn promotion to Division 2 next season.

Handicap for T0 or better class over 2150 metres. Always travelling easily, Im Anonymous had too much in hand at the nish for the old timer Master Kiesey at 13 yrs of age, which used the sprint lane from three back the markers, with Fiftyshadesofbrown running on late out wide from well back for third. The mile rate 2-06. Assisted by a number of gallopers in the race, Tommy Kay had gradually made ground to be one/one at the bell following My Turn My Turn. Taken three wide approaching the home turn, Tommy Kay raced clear shortly after, holding a margin to the wire to register his maiden victory by 4.7 metres over I Dream It (three wide last lap from last four wide home turn) in a rate of 2-09. Herecomeskayla nished third after galloping at the bell when in second place. Colonial stallion It Is I (Golden Greek) has had a sensational week and provided another winner when Dunnstown trainer/driver David Murphys Here And Now raced by wife Erin scored in the Restrepo Pace Final for C1 class four year olds over 1720 metres. A daughter of the Die Laughing mare Live And Learn, Here And Now after a cosy one/one passage after starting from inside the second row, ran home strongly to gain the day in advance of Exotic Native which trailed her, with the hot favourite Earth Angel third after facing the breeze. The mile rate 1-56.2.
