The South Eastern Times : April 3rd 2014
The South Eastern Times, Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 19 www.thesoutheasterntimes.com.au 19 SPORT HUGE HONOUR: Long serving sports administrator, Chris Bailey (right) receives life membership to the Millicent Golf Club from president, Mr Owen Merrett. LIFE memberships to any organisation should not be handed out lightly. They are normally reserved for individuals who have devoted an extraordinary amount of time to a club that they have adopted as their own. A perfect example of that was at the Millicent Golf Club recently when Chris Bailey was awarded life membership for service over so many years that his resume is exhaustive reading. The presentation coincided with the annual Blackwood- Loxton-Millicent golf challenge at his home club and was conducted by current club president, Mr Owen Merrett. Until late last year, Bailey was the secretary of Golf South East and was a diligent golf administrator and some of his achievements have included: Joined the Millicent Golf Club in 1974 and served on the general committee for 17 years. Club president: Four years. Club captain: 1985-86. Vice-captain: 1984. Club champion: 1974, 1975, 1976. Bailey also served on the club's match, house, greens, membership and finance com- mittees for many years and was a regular pennant player. He represented his club at South East Golf Association country week carnivals and competed in the Playfair Tyler Shield and Fulton Shield tournaments on a regular basis as well as winning representations on the SEGA combined team to play against the Riverland and Glenelg District. Bailey also moved into regional administration and was the Millicent delegate to SEGA for many years before taking over as that organisa- tion's secretary. From a media aspect, Bailey was also a regular contributor of his club's golf notes to the South Eastern Times for a long period. Bailey suffered an illness last winter and while he is on the road to recovery, receiving life membership to the club he has devoted more than 40 years to is seen as a perfect pick-me-up.

IN near perfect conditions 19 players took to the course at Beachport Golf Club on Wednesday for a stroke round. It was a day of suspense as players were matched to a secret partner and together the combined scores would decide the result. Marilyn Bellinger with nett 77 and Wendy Atkinson with nett 72 -- with a combined score of 149 the duo took out the win for the day. The runner-up secret partners were Janet McArthur with nett 77 and Sue Wheal with nett 78 and a total of 155, right on the tail of the winning team. The A grade putting award went to Wheal with 28 putts and the B grade winner was Pat Geraghty with 30 putts. The nearest the pin winners saw Jan Green take out the A grade on the sixth green and the B grade closest second shot winner was Atkinson on the ninth hole.

Darts details Bellinger and Atkinson win stroke round as secret partners Bailey receives lifetime honour Loyalty rewarded for golfing administrator MORRIS ROD firstname.lastname@example.org Glencoe v Mount Burr THE Murphies would have returned to their Kirip Road clubrooms last Saturday night with slumped shoulders and heavy hearts as a loss to the Kalangadoo Magpies is always hard to take. Coach Simon Brook and his 20 players won't get much respite in round two as they host the "Burr boys" from along the fabled Overland Track. It might be 31 years since Frazer Scanlon's late father Phil played for Glencoe but the new Mozzie coach will set sentiment aside as he hopes to crown his MSEFL debut with a win. Glencoe's narrow defeat can chiefly be attributed to a poor second term and the fact that players of the calibre of Adam Price, Trent Hawke and Brook himself were sidelined with injury at some stage during the contest. Although Pete Agnew (Robe) and Matthew Wallis (Temora, New South Wales) have moved on, Mount Burr has a stronger list and much better preparation than this time last year. Scanlon, Tom Renzi and Shaun Withers are the pick of the recruits while Jonny Agnew and Taylor Redden are back at their home club. The rumour mill has been in overdrive in the past week that a veteran Millicent player may see out his career at "Mick" and Jean Walker Oval. Prediction: Mount Burr by 15 points Murphies, Mozzies chasing frst victory BEACHPORT TIDE TIMES Thursday 3 0234am 0.9 0704am 0.2 0314pm 1.3 0810pm 0.6 Friday 4 0259am 0.8 0735am 0.2 0347pm 1.2 0841pm 0.6 Saturday 5 0321am 0.8 0808am 0.2 0421pm 1.2 0919pm 0.7 Sunday 6 0230am 0.8 0744am 0.3 0358pm 1.1 0902pm 0.7 WEATHER FOR MILLICENT Thursday Max 21°C Min 10°C Light shower or two Chance of Rain - 15% Friday Max 20°C Min 8°C Partly cloudy Chance of Rain - 0% Saturday Max 21°C Min 9°C Partly cloudy Chance of Rain - 5% Sunday Max 21°C Min 9°C Partly cloudy Chance of Rain - 0% Monday Max 23°C Min 10°C Shower or two Chance of Rain - 25% Thursday 3rd Sunrise 7:24 Sunset 6:59 Friday 4th Sunrise 7:25 Sunset 6:57 Saturday 5th Sunrise 7:26 Sunset 6:56 Sunday 6th Sunrise 6:27 Sunset 5:54 ROBE TIDE TIMES Thursday 3 0246am 0.9 0716am 0.2 0326pm 1.3 0822pm 0.6 Friday 4 0311am 0.8 0747am 0.2 0359pm 1.2 0853pm 0.6 Saturday 5 0333am 0.8 0820am 0.2 0433pm 1.2 0931pm 0.7 Sunday 6 0242am 0.8 0756am 0.3 0410pm 1.1 0914pm 0.7 638718 Thursday Winds Southwesterly 10 to 15 knots turning south to southeasterly 15 to 20 knots in the morning.
