The South Eastern Times : September 13th 2018
2 OPINION IT has been an exciting few days for sports fans to be in Millicent as our town continues to celebrate the premiership successes of Millicent footballers and netballers in the Western Border grand finals in Mount Gambier on Saturday. The red, black and white streamers still decorate many Millicent shops and businesses and it is possible that they may still be there at Christmas. The premiership celebrations of the Saints have been tempered somewhat by official confirmation Saints football coach Clint Gallio is leaving the district. Over the past two seasons, it was Gallio more than any other individual credited with taking the side on to the home ground of East Gambier in the season decider and then lowering the colours of the reigning premiers. Despite a season-ending knee injury 15 months ago which required a reconstruction, Gallio never lost faith in his team’s ability to claim a premiership. After an outstanding underage and senior career with Mount Burr, he left the Mozzies at the end of 2016 and went with the good wishes of all. The same situation now applies as Gallio OUR VIEW Family league end a 41-year premiership drought and also the dominance of reigning premiers Kalangadoo. prepares to depart McLaughlin Park for fresh challenges much further afield. THE attention of local followers of the major winter sporting codes now turns to the Mid South East grand finals at Glencoe on Saturday with an attendance of up to 4000 anticipated. There are David and Goliath contests in both A Grade football and netball. On the courts, Tantanoola is seeking to TALKING TO THE TIMES How do you expect the Mid South East grand finals at Glencoe to play out on Saturday?

Many comments have been received through the media, expressing sadness at the closure of the venue and the cancellation of booked entertainment.

There is no other venue in the area that can compare with the Millicent Community Club as an entertainment venue and over many years it has staged many varying shows, from cabaret to rock bands, country artists, variety and comedy shows. Many wedding receptions have been held there, as have birthdays, engagements, quiz nights and fundraisers for many different charities and not forgetting eight ball and darts. We were approached about five years ago and asked if we could bring some entertainment back to the club. Allan has performed there many times in the past with cabaret bands and, in later years, country bands, so still being in the country music scene our focus became on getting other country artists to visit and entertain at our club. We think these shows were very successful with good crowds, who all appreciated the entertainment and always gave us their full support. Our biggest crowd by far was for international artist Charlie Landsborough, who drew a crowd of 180 patrons. We would just like to thank the club for the use of this venue over the past five years and we were always proud to introduce interstate artists to the venue and our great supporters. We would also like to thank The South Eastern Times and The Border Watch for all the great media coverage they gave us in the way of articles relating to the artists performing, and also Millicent Print, especially Caroline Hammat, for all their help with design and printing of our posters. A huge thank you to all those who attended and gave us encouragement to continue bringing artists to Millicent, without you all we would not have been able to do so. It has been commented several times in the last week, it is the “end of an era”. Who knows what is in store for this building, it may be the start of a new era. Maureen and Allan Webster, Millicent HAYDEN BIDDLE Millicent I believe Robe will win the grand final by three goals and Kalangadoo will win the netball by 15 goals. TIARNA WHEATLEY Millicent It will be Mount Burr in the footy by seven points and Tantanoola in the netty by two goals. KERRY SMITH Millicent Robe will win the football by 14 points and Kalangadoo will win the netball by 25 goals. In all, the Magpies have won 30 flags, including 19 of the past 22. It will be a significant challenge for the Tigers. Mount Burr footballers are seeking their record fourth consecutive flag and 20th in all. Standing in their way are the 22 players of the Robe Football Club. With just three flags in the past five decades, the Roosters need to be at their very best against the Mozzies, who are September specialists.
