The youngEagleskept their opposition goalless for 3 quarters with some excellent work in defence.

TheEaglesmidfield worked hard and delivered the ball to the forwards giving them plenty of opportunities to score.

Bunbury came back in the last quarter and outscored theEagles,but theEagleshad wrapped up the game and were outright winners on the day.

SCORE- CE- 5.14 (44) BUN- 2.17 (27).

GOALS- H Hall (2), D Biluta, J Davidson, A Parkin (1each). BEST- T DeAngelis, J Ramshaw, B Broomhead, L Reuben, K East, D Biluta.

The undermanned Reserves tried valiantly and stepped up to their opposition.

At the 1st break theEagleswere leading. The Bunbury side stepped up a knotch in the 2nd term and at the big break they were leading by a short margin.

TheEaglesat the 3rd break were behind on the scoreboard but it was still any ones game to take the win. Bunbury in the last term stepped up again and at the final siren took home the win.

Last Sunday theEaglesLeague went a long way to cementing their place near the top of the ladder when they accounted for the Bunbury Bulldogs.

TheEaglesgot off to a flyer when Rhys Chappell and Cameron Davidson applied scoreboard pressure by kicking majors before the bulldogs got into gear.

Further goals to Davidson (2) rewarded the home side to go into the 1st break leading 5.2 to 1.1.

Paul Rinder, assisted by Reid Saunders, Kyle Shanahan ,Matt Blackford and Mat Michael kept the pressure on the visitors.

The 2nd term saw Bunbury kick with the aid of the breeze adding 3 goals for the term, while holding theEaglesgoalless to see the margin reduced to 5pts at the main break.

The game tightened as players realised the importance of the result. Goals became critical with neither side able to break into open space to create opportunities for their forwards.

Jake Rodgers, Corey Griggs, Travis Cleggett, Adam Bignell and Joel Mahar stepped up in the tight confines to allow Jayce Fontana and Saunders to extend theEagleslead, before an answering goal came from the boot of Blair Della Franca as theEagleswent to the last break leading 7.5 (47) to 5.4 (34).

The final term saw theEaglesapply the pressure with goals from Ray Daniels (2) and Davidson kicking his 4th major for the game.

A solid defence led by captain Matt Blackford held the visitors goalless for the term to allow theEaglesto run out winners by 30pts, 10.5 (65) to 5.5 (35).

And what better place to do this than at the 2016 Eyre Peninsula Field Days, where you will find a wealth of information.

Let us help plan your day.

Starting with education, schools and colleges from the Eyre Peninsula and further afield will showcase their various programs in the Randbuild shed.

Once you have seen what is on offer when it comes to education, why not educate yourself by exploring the range of banks and their products, grain buyers, and financial and rural advisers, along with a selection of legal experts.

Worked up an appetite? Don’t fret – a wide variety of refreshments will be available, with something to suit every taste.

After lunch, it’s time to check out the tractors in every size, shape and colour, then visit the feed trial plots on the western side of thesite. Have a chat to any one of the grain and seed specialists, and check out the large range of trucks and trailers to deliver your grain during harvest, and the variety of grain handling solutions.

Maybe you don’t want to think about work all day, so why not check out the large range of boats, caravans and cars on display and even plan a trip away.

Do you have lots of odd jobs, but you don’t have the tools? Well there are plenty to choose from with many dealers and suppliers on hand to give you the advice you need.

Need a rest? Pull up a pew at one of the entertainment shows, which range from cooking demos in the TafeSA marquee to the Artyculture parade and guest speakers in the EPFD Pavilion.

The little ones are not forgotten, with Old MacDonald’s Farm and Lil’ Gym providing hours of entertainment for all.

So come along and spend the day (or two) at this year’s Eyre Peninsula Field Days.

Last, but most definitely not least, a huge thank you to all the volunteers who have put in countless hours to get this massive event ready for you all to enjoy.

REGULAR EXHIBITOR: Colin Butcher has been at every Eyre Peninsula Field Days since the event’s inception in 1992.

Noteveryone can say they have exhibited at every Eyre Peninsula Field Days since the event’s inception, but Colin Butcher certainly can.

He and his wife Lorraine have operated Eastern Eyre Machinery since 1992, but his interest and involvement in the farm machinery industry stretches back to 1958.

The Cleve-based business specialises in tillage and seeding machinery, and imports Versatile (Ezee-On) cultivators, airseeders and offset discs, and carries spare parts for the full range, which they are happy to send practically anywhere in Australia.

“We are also agents for other tillage products – Horwood Bagshaw, John Shearer, Kuhn and K-Hart,” Mr Butcher said.

GraincorpAerotechEl-Gra EngineeringPrecision ShedsPeter TreloarHeathy’s Rock Solid ContractingThe Water Tank Cleaning CoSmith andGeorgMogas RegionalHi-tech Ag SolutionsMr Butcher said at Eastern Eyre Machinery, the customer came first.

“We have an extensive range but if there is something you want we don’t have, we can order it in for you,” he said.

“Some of my favourite feedback is from companies who’ve found it hard to get parts for machines that are more than 10 years old.

“Well, we often have stuff right here on the shelves for machines that are over 40 years old.”

Eyre Peninsula is ‘home’ for Mr Butcher, wholooksforward to the biennialfield days when they rolled around.

He said the event provided a platform for him tocatch up with people from across the region, the State, and further afield.

“The field days are good for the town, they bring people here and support other surrounding towns when visitors spend on fuel and accommodation, for example,” he said.

“While you probably won’t get someone buy a $500,000 piece of machinery on the spot, they have the chance to make contact and follow up if they like what they see.”

Mr Butcher encouraged visitors to ask about this year’s show specials and to visit the company’s stand to see a unique piece of machinery.

“We’ll be bringing the new Versatile ML 950 drill, the only one in Australia, plus a Kuhn Mouldboard Plough and a new K-Hart disc seeder,” he said.

Drop in and see whatMr Butcher has on offer at the field days and ask him about how the event hasprogressedacross the decades.
