Batemans Bay parkrun,Saturday, July 23:Last Saturday, the organisers of Batemans Bay parkrun held a pacer run.That means that there were seven pacers running the 5kms. This was a good opportunity for runners to try and achieve a goal time.

One of our RATS, Nicole Rattenbury, was the 30 minute = 6 minutes/km pacer.A couple of other RATS also attended, but unfortunately the windy conditions precluded personal best times on this occasion.However, both runners ran solid races and were happy with their efforts:Jodie Toghill,24.27,2nd outright and 1st (F45-49);Kim Waters,24.47,3rd outright and 2nd (F45-49);Nicole Rattenbury,29.39. Great pacing for those wanting to achieve sub-30 minutes for 5km. Thanks to Nic and all ofthe other volunteers involved.

Sutherland to Surf,Sunday, July 24:

Last Sunday, Barbara Maxwell raced in the 11km Sutherland to Surf event.She covered the distance in a sensational 1.07.02,coming 5th in her age group.

Local running,Sunday, July 24:

Locally, the Ulladulla RATS met near the entrance of the Lake Tabourie Holiday Park.The weather was a little chilly, but good once you got moving.The runners headed south along the highway and turned into Lemon Tree Creek Road.This is a good quality, but very hilly, dirt road which loops around, west of the highway.

Nearly all the runners covered the full 20kms out and back, along this challenging route.A few took diversions for a little less, but all travelled at least 14kms for the morning’s hit out.Coffee after at Maccas was much appreciated.

Running next Sunday,July 31:

Next Sunday is the RATS’ 5km and 10km Handicap number 7. This handicap is now at Narrawallee Inlet, on the corner of Macleay Street and Matron Porter Drive, due to the markets at Mollymook Beach. So come along for a fast flat run.

All new runners start at 7am, so arrive a little early and be ready to go.Those who have run the handicap previously will receive their handicaps by email.Please know your handicap and be ready to run at the correct time, to assist the handicapper.

Pokemon GO craze catching on in Eden

Nanjing Night Net

Some say it’s simply fun and a good excuse to be outside, others warn it’s yet another step towards a machine-addicted future, with accidents, trespassing, and social dysfunction all part of ‘the game’.

Bega resident Tamika Johnson travelled to Eden last Monday specifically to hunt Pokemon characters, and admitted to the strong mind control of the game after being enticed to step into a closed car yard at night to secure a “Golbat” character.

“It’s trespassing I guess, but I just stepped over the chain, got the Pokemon and left,” Ms Johnson said.

Police report further physical and psychological “trespasses” resulting from Pokemon GO.

“Of significant concern to officers were two incidents at Cabramatta, where the drivers of two vehicles were engaged in playing a game on their mobile phones while driving,” a Police Media spokesperson said on Tuesday.

In each case, those drivers were effectively putting themselves, their passengers and other road users at great risk, the police said.

But it appears there’s no limit to how far people will go for the game, with Eden student Kye Drewberry literally lured out of town.

“There are no Pokemon around Wolumla,” Kye said on Tuesday.

“So we drove to Canberra for a day.

And we wanna go to Sydney to catch Pokemon soon.

We’ve wasted a lot of fuel, driving around.

We have jobs, so we can work and pay for our fuel.

But it’s making the bank balance go down a bit!”

An Eden psychologist, who wished to stay anonymous, said the game is just another “addiction to a machine that mediates everything”.

“Emotional health, social connections, a sense of being worthwhile; the machine is becoming increasingly vital in that,” the psychologist said.

“We’re becoming a cyber people.”

The young side wasmeant to play Vic Park White on Sunday 24 but the traveling side forfeited the game.

This gave the Falcons an automatic three points but no advantage on goal difference,which could be detrimental later in the season.

Coach Elijah Macchia said it was disappointing there was no opportunityto see the new up-and-coming squad members in action at Dudley Cornell on Sunday.

“We have some very talented youngsters coming through our internal league at the moment –the future looks bright for the club,” he said.The Falcons are set to face rivals Sebastopol at St George’s Parkon Sunday, July 31.

The Falcons have lost both games against the Vikings this season but the side was competitive in both matches.

“As a side we want to show the league that we can defeat the best,” Macchia said.

“It will take a full team contribution to win this game but I believe my side has become strong as a unit and have developed a great understanding of each other.

“I just want my playersto have fun and learn from this year.”

The Falcons faced Sebastopol in the first game of the season and were defeated 4-2.

In the second game, the side wasdefeated 5-3.

“Every time we have played a team twice we have come back even stronger and I again expect that from the side on Sunday,” Macchia said.The Falcons have a hard run home with games against the top three teams Ballarat, Vic Park and Sebastopol.

Nanjing Night Net

The Rathmines-based not-for-profit theatre group, now in its 42ndyear, is known for its fundraising efforts for the local community.

The group has raisedmore than$210,000 which it has donated to the community.

It is also known for staging its annual productions at Rathmines Community Hall.

But the ongoingclosure of the hall due to asbestosremediation works by Lake Macquarie City Council has forced a change of venue.

The three one-act comedies areWhen I Snap My Fingers by Bruce Adam, The Man On The FloorbyNeil Simon, and Mary, Maryby Bruce Adam.

They will be directed by Helen Bristow.

“When I Snap My Fingers is an example of what can happen when hypnosis byThe Great Sven Gali (played by Peter Saunders) goes wrong,” Ms Bristow said.

If you’ve ever suffered from a bad back, you’ll sympathise with The Man On TheFloor, Ms Bristow said.

AndMary,Mary provides a real dilemma for Terry Wilson (Wes Galvin). His motherMary (Helen Kerr) has invited one of his work colleagues, Mary Mackenzie(Jenny Markham) for dinner.

But Terry has also brought home an unexpected guest,Mary Levin (Jocelyn Kroll).

Over the years,Catalina Players have made donations to a range of individuals and organisationsincludinglocal schools, families in crisis, injured or disabled people,the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, andcancer support groups.

“We are looking forward to another bumper year and withyour support we can continue to entertain while maintaining our donations,” Ms Bristow said.

These comedies, interspersed with a three-course dinner and extras, will be performed atWangi Workers Club on August 6, 13, 20 and 27, then September3 and 10 September.

Tickets for the show and dinner cost $50 and includes hors d’oéuvres,tea andcoffee.

Bush dance to raise money for Glen Innes study venue

DANCE FOR DOLLARS: Student representative council spokeswoman Rosanna Zomer said the dance will be a fun way to raise funds for a senior study building.GLEN INNES, get your dancing boots on and help the high school P and C and the student representative council to raise funds for a senior study building.
Nanjing Night Net

A good ol’ country bush dance will be held on Saturday July 30 between 5pm and 8pm at the high school gym, which will be converted into a barn for the major fundraiser of 2016.

Student representative council (SRC) spokeswoman Rosanna Zomer said the decision to build a place for year 11 and 12 students to study quietly was one that had the full support of the administration and the P and C.

“We need a place to go to be more studious, a place that is quiet and allows us to concentrate,” she said.

“In the library it can become a little too loud and with exams and constantly having assessments it will be nice to a have a comfortable, quiet area, with access to computers and other study aids.

“This building that we are raising funds for will be really helpful for students.”

Miss Zomer said the SRC met with the P and C recently and talked through the logistics of the building and its construction.

“We had a meeting and we discussed things such as design and other practicalities,” she said.

“The student body is very thankful for the support we are being given by the Principal, teachers and the P and C.”

High School teacher Jill Malone said the school is hopeful the building can be built by the end of the year.

“We have decided upon a shipping container construction which will provide a place where seniors can go during their study periods,” she said.

“Mike Gray has left the school with a nest egg which the P and C plan to use with the funds raised from the canteen for this building.

“The bush dance is a chance for the students who participated in dance lessons during PE in Term two to show their parents their dancing skills and for the children to be the experts and teach their parents which should be a fun way to raise funds towards this worthy cause.”

Tickets for the bush dance are $10 including a cup of soup and tea and coffee and cordial. Children under five are free. Tickets are available at CRT, School office or Carelles.

Hey hey hey, it’s an old Hunter bus stop

filed under 南京夜网

All Aboard: Newcastle artist Trevor Dickinson’s depiction of a bus stop at Maitland.
Nanjing Night Net

See this artwork. It reminds us of the old cartoon Fat Albert.

D’you remember that show? “Hey hey hey, it’s Fat Albert. And I’m gonna sing a song for you….”

This bus stop used to be at Maitland railway station. Trevor Dickinson created a popular artwork of the structure.

It’s something about the style and colour of the art that triggered this connection to Fat Albert.

We freely admit we could bethe only person in the world to make this link.

Anyhow, we should stop daydreaming and do some work.

This artwork is actually Newcastle artist Trevor Dickinson’s depiction of a bus stop at Maitland.

ABC Newcastle producer Anthony Scully told Topics that Trevor had to “climb a fence to photograph the old bus stop structure at Maitland in a railway siding”.

“You can still find it on Google Maps but my sources tell me it’s not there anymore,” Anthony said.

He was hoping to film a segment with Trevor with the actual bus stop or a similar one.

If anyone knows where to find similar bus stops in the region, Anthony would like to know.

He had heard the Maitland bus stop was moved to a park in Sydney and being refurbished for use as a shelter.

Trevor’s artwork of the bus stop was “now famous in Canberra, adorning prints, postcards, tea towels and coffee mugs”.

McCloy’s SecretsProperty developer Jeff McCloy shared the secrets of his success at a Newcastle event on Monday night.

The former lord mayor was keynote speaker at a business seminar titled The Secrets To Property Success at The Lucky Hotel in Hunter Street.

Jeff kindly shared a list of his secrets before the seminar began.Here they are: Profit when you buy, not sell; buy the worst house in the best street;add value;have self belief;the market has seven-year cycles; do your homework; don’t buy when everyone else is buyingunless you see something they don’t; buyproperty as closeto a CBD as possible because values rise faster there than elsewhere; opportunity knocks softly; be very careful of managing yourdebt; ensure you have enough cash flow; have determination andnever give up; ask yourself if you could survive the worst that could happen in adeal; have a fall back position; maintenance of investment properties anddesign and colour are important; focus on the detail; if you just want to make money, it probably won’t work; if you want to do a good job and make money, it might; when you look at a building for sale, don’t see walls –think what it could be.

Quiz Show SecretsTopics reported last week about Russell Cheekand his story of winningSale of the Century in 1993.

Russell, who grew up in Newcastle,performed a theatrical show about the experienceoverfour nights last week at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Bolton Street.

We checked it out on Saturday night. Itwas brilliant, funny, nostalgic and revealing.

Russell won the big prize on the quiz show, collecting cash and prizes worth more than $313,000.To achieve this, he had to win eight consecutive shows.

In his performance at the theatre, he revealed that each episode of the quizshow wasfilmed 10 minutes apart.

Having won his seventh show, he was on a roll. The schedule for that day included one more show, which would have featured Russell going for the grand prize.

But at the last minute a producer told him they had a “technical problem” and couldn’t do the last show.So Russell had to fly back home to Sydney.It seemed like they were trying to “psyche him out”.When he returned to Melbourne for the final show, he overcame his nerves to claim victory.

We asked Russell if he believed the show organisers were trying to “rattle him” to prevent him winning the big prize.

He said he believed their story about the “technical problem”. Was it acoincidence that on his final show he came up against a woman who seemed to have a real chance of beating him?In the end, it didn’t matter. Russell blitzed her. The guy has an amazing brain.

B Grade:Ceduna Blues United (36) defeated by Thevevard (39)

Ceduna best: Georgia Lambeff

Thevenard best: Frew Halbert

A very close tussle was fought throughout the game with the lead changing many times. Thevenard had the first 5 goals on the scoreboard in both the 1st and 2nd quarters before CBU could score. For each quarter CBU caught up and levelled at each break. Third quarter saw a role reversal with CBU scoring the first 5 goals before Thevenard could register one. Thevenard, with good defensive pressure were able to level the score at 3/4 time. The last quarter was set for a good showdown. Thevenard applied the pressure defensively and on the scoreboard with some impressive play, which gave them the lead at the final whistle.

C Grade – Team 1:Ceduna Blues United 1 (31) defeated by Thevenard (37)

Ceduna Best: Amy Norsworthy

Thevenard Best: Dakota Nicholls

The first quarter pressure was strong by both teams resulting in a one goal lead by Ceduna Blues at quarter time. In the second quarter, Thevenard’s pressure intensified and the pace quickened. Thevenard led by 4 goals at half time. In the third quarter, Blues changed their line up and pressure continued by both teams resulting in some unforced errors. Blues won the quarter by a goal, closing the gap to three, Thevenard’s way. Blues had another change at three quarter time, yet Thevenard goalies remained shooting accurately and continued to apply pressure down the court. Thevenard won the quarter by 3 goals. Final scores were31 to 37 Thevenard’s way.

Ceduna Best: Natalie Filsell and Kirsty Sansbury

Thevenard Best: Remi Watson and Kaitlin Kavanagh

Blues started well capitalising on several loose balls and turnovers to have a 12 goal lead at quarter time.

Excellent pressure in defence created plenty of opportunities for the blues midcourt to provide the hard working goalies with extra opportunities to extend the lead throughout the second quarter.

Thevenard fought back hard in the second half of the match with their goalies shooting accurately and their midcourt and defence working well to bring the ball down the court,but blues hung on to win by 18

Junior A:Ceduna Blues United (34) defeated Thevenard (26)

Ceduna Best: Kayla Gurney

Thevenard Best: Molly Inglis

A great competitive game by both sides today. First quarter saw both teams creating very quick play which resulted in many simple mistakes. By second quarter both teams seemed to have settled and began playing their own game. Thevenard’s goalies were moving very well around the goal ring and were being fed to by their attackers well – leaving CBU defences on the back foot a number of times. Half time scores were CBU 35 to Thv 22.

CBU made some changes to their attack end and this was working well for them. The CBU goalies were working hard to beat their equally tall opponents, and the passes coming from the attackers were perfectly positioned. Last quarter saw CBU’s defensive pressure really lift, particularly in the goal circle. Was a great game to watch and great sportsmanship from both sides.

Uni pip Bombers in tense finish

Nanjing Night Net

Sydney University stole victory from the jaws of defeat on Saturday when they overran a gallant Redland to win a thrilling NEAFL contest by nine points at Blacktown.

The Bombers led for most of the match before the lead changed four times in an epic last quarter, which saw the students come out on top 8.12 (60) to 7.9 (51).

With their season on the line, Redland made their intentions known from the opening bounce when Nick Weller and Blake Grewar combined for the first two goals.

The Bombers went into quarter-time 13 points clear as the students soon went up a gear, reducing the margin to seven within a minute of the second through Rising Star nominee Michael Manteit.

Redland were held goalless for the term as Sydney Uni booted 2.4 to hit the front by two point at half-time.

A pair of goals from Bombers forward James Rayner restored the lead for the Bombers deep into the third as they held on to a two-point lead at the last change to set the match up for a tense finish.

The students were first to strike through Lewis Stevenson as the two sides traded blows for the first 20 minutes of the quarter.

It took consecutive goals from Kany Murphy, followed by young gun Sam Fong at the 25-minute mark, to push the Students over the line.

They were led brilliantly by defender Tim Barton, Tom Ayton, Aaron Day, with midfielders Fong (20 disposals), Stevenson (25 disposals and seven clearances) and ruckman Spencer Krochmal also damaging.

Grewar was outstanding for the Bombers with 34 disposals, 10 clearances and five inside 50s. Rising Star nominees Hayden Bertoli-Simmonds (23 disposals) and Darcy Cameron-Reeves, plus defender Peter Yagmoor, Adrian Williams and ruckman Craig Malone were among their better players.

It was Sydney Uni’s first ever win over the Bombers in the competition, having lost by two points (2014), 10 (2015) and 24 (2016) in their only three encounters.

The students leaped into second place on the ladder by percentage with four rounds remaining.

The Bombers remain in seventh, but are now four points adrift of sixth spot after Southport’s win over Brisbane on Sunday.

They face eighth-placed Gold Coast in a must-win clash next Sunday to keep their finals hopes alive.
