IT was very sad to hear Trish White suddenly left this world late last week. I’ve been lucky enough to have known Trish ever since she came to Walcha to run the Apsley Hotel with her then husband Ian Norris. Condolences to Trish’s husband Mick, all other family members and her many friends. There will be a service for Trish this afternoon at the Catholic Church from 2pm.
Walcha continued their successful start to the season when they accounted for Bendemeer 18-10 last Saturday with the good defence the platform laid for the win in their Round 2 league tag game.
AJ Cross CONGRATULATIONS to the Walcha Flippers on another great season and to all the people that make it happen. A special mention for club president Angus Warden whose high level of enthusiasm never diminishes which drags others along in his slipstream. Gus would have been a proud dad when his three kids Zac, Jemma and Hamish, all finished age division club champions this season. Just for good measure, Zac and Jemma broke a record each while “Hammer” went back to back 8 years champion.

Coogee Cross A FUNNY thing happened to former Walcha resident Corey Jamieson the other day - not lay down on the ground and kick your legs in the air and rub your tummy funny – but worthy of a mention anyway. “Pope” currently lives in Caloundra where he has returned to the butchery trade and, when he bumped into a fellow who wanted to know where he was from, Corey replied “Walcha”, not expecting the response he received.
AJ Cross CAN’T Touch This touch footy team created Walcha touch history when they won their D Grade grand final 5 -2 against Shags Boys last Sunday. They became the first team to lose a preliminary final and then go on to win the premiership decider. How could they do that you may ask? Simple really - the team that defeated them in the preliminary final – Top Shelf Rockies - had too many players involved in the church Harvest Festival last Sunday and couldn’t play at their allotted time, so they sent Can’t Touch This to bat for them instead.
Results from the Walcha touch grand finals

VIC: On the surface it's a cute pic. Danger, however, lurks nearby.
