Great start to Junior Magpies regular season

Saturday, April 12 saw the start of the regular season for the junior Magpies with a trip to Barcaldine to contest the under 7s, 8s, 10s, 12s, and 14s. Under 7s coach Brent Gerber managed to give all 20 players who turned up for the contest a good run in the three 10 minute periods, this in itself a feat on its own. The under 7s skill level and organisation on the eld is improving with every game, a tribute to Brent and his training helpers. The 8s continue to play well, with special mention going to Will Alexander for his great improvement both in defence and attack and also to Quinne Carolan for opening her try scoring for the year with a trifecta. The under 10s and 12s followed up their strong games from a fortnight ago in Ilfracombe with similar performances. With the under 12s being a few players short, AJ Hauff, Wilson Sprague, Peter Blucher and Andrew Davison put in a great effort and played both games. The under 14s rounded off the day with the bare minimum of 13 taking to the paddock. A few lapses in concentration along with a lack of match tness early in the season saw them go down to a strong Barcaldine side 24-18. All in all it was a great day for the Magpies, enjoyed by players and supporters alike. Parents made a special effort to get children to the game during the school holidays. The next game will be the weekend of April 26 against Longreach in Blackall. It is hoped to see all Magpie supporters at the game.

Blackall-Tambo council holds rst meeting


-- by Sally Cripps
Around 20 people attended the public Declaration of Ofce of the four councillors and mayor of the inaugural BlackallTambo Regional Council held on Wednesday, April 9. Following the swearing in ceremony the new council got down to business, electing Peter Skewes as deputy mayor. Meeting dates and times were agreed on, with the council deciding to conduct meetings in both Tambo and Blackall, on Wednesdays. The rst general meeting will be held in Tambo on April 23, followed by one in Blackall on May 14. All councillors belong to a new works and nance committee which will meet quarterly, the rst being in Blackall on June 25. The October works and nance meeting is scheduled to be held at the Scrubby Creek recreation club, which was a yearly feature of the former Tambo Shire Council calendar. Cr Skewes said alternating meetings was a good idea as it would be good for councillors to familiarise themselves with the different towns. I know very little about Tambos

Some very good games were held on Sunday April 6, with the best being in handicap singles between the two Johns, Bowyer and Carter.

This is my rst From the Mayors Desk column for the Barcoo Independent. I rmly believe that communication will be of paramount importance as the BlackallTambo Regional Council gets under way. On March 27 I attended the Premiers Summit of newly elected mayors in Brisbane, where personal integrity, accountability and transparency as well as responsibility were high on the list of priorities. Our very rst council meeting was of a statutory nature but nonetheless historical, where the councillors were inducted in the presence of their family and friends. I owe an apology to the many members as well as their families and friends, of the Blackall Swimming Club as I endeavoured to make sure that a message of congratulations to all those swimmers who have participated throughout the season was ready to be read on their Award Night. I believe it must be out there in cyberspace as I write this. It was a pleasant surprise to call in on the SpeakOut team as they held their various workshops over the past week. While the uptake rate was fewer than it could be I am sure the participants would have beneted greatly from the one-on-one tuition available. No doubt there will be far more students taking advantage of this unique opportunity in the future. It is great to see the main street centre lawns looking so well manicured and so green, a tribute to the efforts of the Blackall gardening team. Our next general council meeting will be held in Tambo on the 23rd of April.

Last Anzac Day at old cenotaph precinct


This year will be the last Anzac Day conducted at the cenotaph within its current Memorial Park environs. As previously reported in the Barcoo Independent a joint project is underway between the state government, the Blackall-Tambo Regional Council and the Blackall RSL to upgrade the cenotaph and its surrounds. Blackall RSL Sub Branch president Terry Brennan said his goal had been to have the project completed for Anzac Day this year. Unfortunately, due to the lead time to supply bronze plaques, the very earliest the project could have commenced was the week leading up to Anzac Day, he said. Terry said that following discussions with the BlackallTambo Regional Council it was agreed to undertake the major works required for the project in early June. This decision has a silver lining in that the Memorial Park lawns and general surrounds will be in perfect condition for Anzac Day this year rather than suffering from the visible scars necessary to undertake the work, he said. He added that the decision to delay the works was a win-win for all involved as it provided time to ensure the project is carried out to the highest standard, and permitted detailed planning for the rededication of the cenotaph on Anzac Day 2009. Terry said he was looking forward to working with the council and local contractors to ensure the project is completed to a standard that all can be proud of. Individual Wreath Laying Anzac Day ceremonies will commence with a dawn service at 6am in the Memorial Park. Terry said the numbers attending this very special and emotional ceremony have been increasing each year and he hoped this trend would continue this year. The morning march and ceremony will commence at 9.40

A very pleasing development over the last couple of years has been the number of individual families who have expressed a desire to lay a wreath during the morning service in memory of loved ones who have served their country in time of peace as well as conict. Terry encouraged any individual, family or community organisation who would like to order a wreath to contact Sub Branch secretary Donny Daly on 0427 400 754.

W H H art sw im trophies to N at and K yle


The Blackall Swimming Club has wrapped up yet another successful season, culminating in their club championships on Saturday, April 5. Nearly 50 members competed on the day in 98 events with notable performances by Blake Arnold in setting a new club record in the boys 6 & under 15m freestyle, and by Natalie Dendle in claiming new pool and club records in the girls 14yrs 50m freestyle, buttery, backstroke and 200m individual medley events. The annual WH Hart Memorial100m freestyle event, which has been running since 1962 and is sponsored by Linda Baker and family, was contested at the conclusion of the meet. Kyle Richardson took out the mens event and Natalie Dendle won the womens nal. As this is the third consecutive year both these swimmers have won this event, in accordance with the rules they now become the permanent owners of their respective perpetual trophies. Once the championships were over a presentation dinner was held at the Blackall Multipurpose Sport and Rec facility. The evening was well attended with over 100 family and friends joining together to celebrate the childrens achievements. Bevan Hauff was the MC for the evening and delivered the Presidents Report on behalf of Glenys Kowald. Glenys thanked all children and parents for their ongoing support and contribution to swimming in the central west and paid special thanks to the Blackall Multipurpose Association for its donations to the club. The club had a very busy but successful season, attending seven regional meets and having swimmers qualify for age state championships and school state championships. Natalie Dendle qualied for both championships and was selected for the CQ relay team, while Jamee Johnson and Josh McErlean attended Primary School State Championships in March. Acknowledgement was also made of committee members Dwayne Kangan, Kathy Dendle, Julie Hauff, Zoe Johnson and Karen Wilson for all their hard work throughout the season. Special presentations were made to several members, including Gary Dendle and Lawrie Doonar, who received personalised whistles for their tireless efforts in refereeing every week, while Karyn and Kevin Lee were presented with club towels to thank them for their continued support of BASA, and Carol and Kelvin Blacker were presented with a gift certicate in acknowledgement of their contribution to the club on Thursday evenings, at carnivals and on presentation night.

Resin art

Expatriate Quilter

Four days of experimentation with resin art will take place between May 20-23, giving people a chance to create masterpieces such as bracelets, platters and resin jewellery with Matt Dwyer. Matt is a jewellery, lighting and object designer whose work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in Barcelona, Shanghai, Bangkok and Singapore. In taking a lighthearted approach to design, Matts work has contained unusual materials such as Velcro hair rollers or electrical wires from discarded household appliances. More recently his work has physically embraced a sense of play, making spinning tops that double as neckpieces and little rag doll brooches whose heads and limbs bob around as the wearer moves. Robyn Adams is the contact person for people planning to

New Ways With Machine Blocks is the theme of the quilting workshop being run from May 25-29 with expatriate Blackall tutor Gerry Easey. She is going to be teaching upbeat modern techniques to create stunning effects whilst experimenting with different fabrics and tools. Gerry says her main interest is the visual and illusory effect that pieced quilts give. She is keen to renew friendships in her old home town and to pass on her latest quilting ideas. Lorna Evans is taking names for the quilting workshop. All workshop fees have been set at $25 a day and there will be additional costs for materials used. Classes have limits on the number of people that can attend so organisers recommend booking early to ensure a place.

Pick up a stitch at knitting workshops


The age-old craft of knitting will get a colourful facelift when the Heartland Festival stages a twoday workshop in Blackall at the end of May. Tutor Michelle Hartrick is coming all the way from Scone in New South Wales to pass on her love of knitting to the people of Blackall and surrounding areas on May 29/30. Knitted garments have gone from the utilitarian focus of war years to fashion items, she said. The knitting resurgence of the 1980s inspired knitting design which became creative and colourful. Women began knitting with new yarns which were heavily inuenced by Italian and American designers, and garments became fashion statements. Michelle likes to feature the versatile yarns of today which include ne merino for traditional lace knitting, alpaca, silk, bamboo, tofu, soy silk, kid mohair, cotton, cashmere all very knittable for both casual and more formal wear and will be featuring these in starter kits, with funky needles, for sale to get the workshop underway. Day one of the workshop will concentrate on beginner knitters, while day two will have an emphasis on colour for the more advanced knitter. I am keen to show people how they can express themselves through knitting, Michelle said. One technique which is a lot of fun is shadow knitting, an illusory style which uses two colours and plain and purl, following a simple graph. The shadow effect varies with the direction of viewing and is due to the different height of knit stitches on the wrong side of the rows. A knit stitch is at while a purl stitch is raised, so one can change which colour (dark or light) stands out. When looking straight at the knitted piece, the stitches look approximately the same but from an angle only the raised purl stitches are visible. Knitters often enjoy watching when the picture created becomes visible, and its a popular style for children to wear, said Michelle. She has been a great supporter of group knitting and has had her own caf knitting group in Port Macquarie. She currently convenes a sit to knit group in Scone where she instructs both newcomers and those wanting to resume an old hobby. This type of knitting appeals to a wide range of people, including men, she said. There are those who no longer knit for the family or themselves, but still like the communal feel, relaxation and interest that this experience brings. Others are beginners and community knitting is a simple project to become involved with. Of course, there is the social aspect and camaraderie that an age old craft can bring. Michelle is currently studying a Masters in Knitting Technique with the Knitters Guild of America, and has raised $20 000 by running parades for various charity groups in New South Wales. Her own knitted items will be one of the features of the fashion parade to be held at the Matilda Highway race meeting the day after the workshops. Knitted fashion is right up there with the runway catwalk stuff, let me tell you, she said. I am so excited to be invited to come out to western Queensland to share my love of knitting with everyone, she added. During the workshops she will be giving short talks on the art of

WD & RA Milton, Longreach presented 350 Brahman and Brahman cross light feeder steers which averaged 164 c/kg for 320 kg. Ian Hoch, Alpha sold 53 Hereford cross heifers to a top of 142.6 c/kg to average 141.6c or $579.80 for 409 kg.

SpeakOut project gets underway in Blackall


A week lled with energy, creativity and inspiration marked the start of SpeakOuts delivery of creative industry employment training in Blackall. Based at Blackalls Memorial Hall, 10 young people from Blackall, Barcaldine and Longreach explored activities ranging from movie making and screenprinting to digital photography and stencilling in a week of intensive tutoring. Sammy Jo Marshall of Barcaldine said the concept really appealed to her from the start and the week hadnt disappointed. I thought it was going to be people telling us what to do and having set criteria but this is so different, she said. You dont think in a world of black and white, youre allowed to explore. Ive really gained an insight into the world of lm. Her comments were echoed by Claire Rawlins from Longreach. I was originally going to study psychology at uni but Ive gotten over that, Claire said. Now Im thinking of something to do with art, something I can really get my teeth into. The former Blackall shire had engaged in long term negotiations with SpeakOut to establish an ongoing presence in the town that would bring about a creative industry base for the central west. Called 22 Creative Pathways in the Central West, the initial program aims to attract 22 young people from the region to engage in diverse creative skills development over a series of intensive workshops from April through to July. With two intensive training sessions still to come in May and July, places are still available for newcomers. Ive been talking to mates and lots want to do it now, said Longreachs Bree Monaghan. Weve been putting in the effort and getting tired but its good effort. Participants are all working on personal projects, with common themes of community, identity and place, and self expression, expressed via short animations, photographic essays, digital stories and mixed media explorations. A showcase of the rst week of work was attended by 40 people at the Memorial Hall last Saturday evening, and a community drop-in workshop session is planned for May 17, to enable people to nd out more about the project. SpeakOut is also employing Hayley Judd as its community project support ofcer to provide on-ground program delivery, when she will operate out of the Memorial Hall on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Blackall-Tambo Regional Council spokesperson Louise Campbell said the Blackall shire had wanted to nd ways to diversify into new industries for both economic and social outcomes and to provide solutions for youth capacity building. The long term aim is for creative enterprise and economic development, to skill, employ and retain young people, to encourage the return of skilled young people

back to the region, and to develop e-commerce and technology industry awareness in the region, Louise said. SpeakOut will support the community, in particular youth, to access services that are not currently available, and open pathways to diversify from traditional rural engagement towards technology advancement, which is essential for the 21st century.
