Editor - News Is Flowing Again

G'day, Just wanted to say that the big pause in publishing the newsletters was caused by me taking time to edit the Eudunda Show Book. As the show planning starts with the show book being set up with all the details, sections, times etc. it takes some time to compile.

The Show will have many new items this year. For those waiting on the latest Show Book - that should be out in about a month, after all sections have checked the final copy again. Thank you to the Sponsors who have signed up to help the show this year, and our great committee for feeding me all the info to go in it.

The newsletter should be a bit more regular from now on. It's a "Bumper Issue" as I try to catch up on some of the news.
The Eudunda Business & Tourism Committee (ECBAT) encourage all local businesses to attend. We thank the Mid North Industry Leaders Group for initiating this event. As well as learning about the various organisations supporting local businesses, you will also have a session called
"Business Marketing through Social Media"
delivered by Clare based Word Solutions. 

FREE Energy Saving Products - LAST CHANCE!

Dave Henwood will come to your house and replace your light globes and shower heads for FREE.

Copyworld Walky 100 - 12th Aug

Meet the Teams at Top Pub - Friday Night

By Damien Rolland
Last year’s winners Declan Dwyer and navigator Craig Adams, are back in their white Mitsubishi Evo V to attempt one of the hardest feats in the Robertstown rally – a back to back win which hasn’t been achieved since Jim Conaghty and Jeremy Browne took out the 1984 and 1985 events in a Dazda.  Being the only driver to amass three Robertstown Rally titles Declan is the master of the Robertstown environs. Craig Adams will be attempting to match Jeremy Browne’s record of navigating three drivers to first place.

This year’s Robertstown event has six day time stages and the excitement of six night stages with the best drivers in the state racing on the roads along the ridge tops surrounding Robertstown in a dazzling display of night time motor sport as the rally cars spotlights light up the night sky.

This years event is a smorgasbord of rally action for spectators with almost double the spectator points from last year to give a massive 5 official spectator points to try and see.  This year’s viewing is on Scrubby Hills, Pumping station, Hill Big One and two on Roast.  

More information is available from Rally HQ at the Robertstown oval.

Want to Chat with the crews that go out on this rally? You will have an opportunity to do so at the
Eudunda Hotel Motel ("Top Pub") the Friday night before the event (11th).

Come along and support this great event, and at the same time support the local organisations who are helping with things like catering. See you at the Robertstown Oval this Saturday.

Successful Opening - Eudunda Community Hub

On Tuesday 25th July the public opening of the Eudunda Community Hub took place at the old Regional Council of Goyder Depot on the corner of Pine Street and World's End Highway.

There was a great interest in this new community resource, and much to the delight of the small committee, some 30 people attending the official opening and another 20 or so came during the day to find out more.

Gus Geursen during his welcoming speech told of being granted $958 from the Regional Council of Goyder Eudunda Ward Sport and Recreation Fund with the Eudunda Community Business and Tourism Committee (ECBAT) help to set up furniture and equipment for the new Community Hub. He also told that they had gained additional State Government funding to buy some bigger pieces of equipment. The Hub is funded by Memberships, grants and donations. The members can make things for themselves or donate them for sale, so that the hub can continue to operate. It was stressed that the Hub was for all ages and for both men and women. Some members are willing to share thier skills and passion and help others to learn what they do. The Hub is not just about working with new skills but about getting out and meeting others, and game play such as cards is also on offer.

During the opening the committee were able to show off a great array of equipment, generously donated to them, and some of the projects volunteers might like to tackle with activities including woodworking, metalwork, tiling and other art projects, knitting, board games and cards.. The committee asked for suggestions and many offered up some great ideas. The Committee are keen to have people sign up as members, and become active in thier own projects or to join in with others. Best way to find out what is happening is to 'drop in' on a Tuesday and have a chat.

Reporting on this weeks activities, held yesterday, Committee member Roth Colben said,
"At one stage we had about five or six women knitting, crotcheting and rug making in the kitchen area. Some of us did mosaic work too. On the woodwork side they were busy cleaning up a donated jarrah outdoor setting which someone has already promised a very generous donation of money for. Another interesting project coming to light is that of making signs for a local shop".

ECBAT AGM Highlights Successful Projects and Positive Communications with Council

July was the AGM for Eudunda Community Business and Tourism Committee (ECBAT) and a changing of the guard saw Trevor Mathews elected the new Chairperson, while Alison Schutz & Carolyn Krause were retiring, and Richard Mosey has come on-board, new to the committee and Peter Herriman is returning after a break.

It was pleasing to see surprise guest David Stevenson, the new Regional Council of Goyder CEO, who took the time to listen to the current issues and expects to improve the communication between ECBAT and the Council.

Successful SALA Opening on Friday Night as Eudunda Remembers "Yesterday"

What a great start to Eudunda's SALA event, with a large gathering coming out in bad weather to celebrate this year's launch at the Eudunda Hall on Friday Night to enjoy the hall filled with presentations. With great entries from all the schools, and interactive art by Ted Bowden, nibbles and drinks it was a good night out.

SALA is the South Australian Living Artist Festival held state wide over the month of August each year.
Eudunda has been active in the festival for many years. 

The displays were also viewable over the weekend,  Sat from 10am - 4pm, and Sun from 10am - 3pm.
Congratulations to the Organising Committee for a great event.

There are also some SALA displays around Eudunda, the most noticeable one being at the Eudunda Kindy, and they must be congratulated for thier very unique display on the Kindy fence. Hopefully they have had a chance to repair it as the terrible winds damaged it slightly overnight. What was nice was that although the Kindy was an outside art project, they took photos and presented it inside at the hall as well. Great Work - Eudunda Kindy!!!

Samuel Doering Experience in Opposition at LC

Samuel Doering, from Neales Flat, was recently involved in the Youth Parliament where he spent a week debating bills and learning about public speaking and leadership in Parliament House, Adelaide.

Sam said that “It truly was an honour to be able to lead the Opposition in the Legislative Council, as it allowed me to learn more about how to be a leader, and learn more about debating and public speaking.”

Throughout the week at Parliament House in Adelaide, more than 90 participants were actively engaged in debating and public speaking both in the House of Assembly and the Legislative Council. Each team had one bill which they sponsored, or proposed and also had a bill which they were to refute.
