ONBehalfof the 2016 Eyre Peninsula Field Days committee, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all exhibitors and visitors.

The field days are an important occasion from both a business and social perspective.

The event brings together all types of machinery, large and small, and gives farmers the opportunity to compare, talk to dealers, air their frustrations, socialise with like-minded people and catch up withfriends.

Under no circumstances can farmers give up improving their farming methods.

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.

Eyre Peninsula Field Days Committee President

Student living a dream

SINGING SENSATION: Oxley High’s Geordie Brown will be a featured performer at this year’s Schools Spectacular. Photo: Barry Smith 290716BSE06THREE high school students from across the region are set to play a starring role in this year’s Schools Spectacular.It promises to be the biggest yet and this year’s theme of Dream Big certainly applies to the students announced this month as feature artists.

The local headliners include Inverell High’s Ashleigh Campbell (featured vocalist), Guyra Central School’s Savannah Roberts (featured dancer) and Geordie Brown (core choir), from Oxley High.

Geordie was thrilled to get through the gruelling audition process earlier this year and is now hard at work with rehearsals, having to fly to Sydney regularly and spending even more hours on his own practice.He’ll need to be at his best, too, because the 30-member core choir is on stage for the whole of the show.

He’s no stranger to live performance though, being an active member of the Tamworth Musical Society and playing several key parts in the group’s most recent show, Mary Poppins, which played to packed houses every night.

A role in the Schools Spectacular is another means of furthering his post-school dreams.

“I’m interested in a career in musical theatre or movies professionally and I see this as another step to getting closer to that goal,” the Year 11 student said.

Ashleigh and Savannah are similarly excited.Ashleigh was a member of the core choir last year and is thrilled that in her final year of school she’ll get the chance as a featured vocalist.

“I just think it is an absolutely incredible experience, especially for country kids to come and be involved in such a spectacular production – it’s just amazing,” she said.

Savannah is only in Year 9, but is making the most of her talents, with her featured dancer role in the Spectacular, coming on top of selection onto the State Schools Ballet Ensemble.

“Being selected means a great deal to me because it is such a wonderful opportunity for somebody from a small rural community,” she said.

The massive event will take place on November 25 and 26, this year at its new home at QUDOS Bank Arena.

20 dirt roads, equating to more than 47 kilometres,have been listed to be re-sheeted, while 11 roads have been selected as a priority for resealing.

Coorong District Council Cheif Executive Officer Vincent Cammell said these roads wereprioritisedas a result of the detailed asset management planning process that the council undertakes.

“The overall asset management process is designed to maximise road life by ensuring the optimal intervention by higher level works as opposed to ongoing maintenance activities – in the longer term this will enable us to maintain our road network to a higher standard,” he said.

It is estimated that more than $1.05 million will be spent on the resealing of bitumen roads as allocated in the 2016/17 Annual Business Plan.

The identified roads include Naurrung Road and the intersection of Matson Street and Bonney Street in Meningie and Sherlock’s Tynan Road.

Five roads in Tailem Bend were named on the list including Lime Kiln Road, Tiller Street, Mott Street, Hector Road and Moir Street.

While Woods Well Road, the intersection of Helling Street and Long Street as well as Carcuma Road in Tintinara will also be sealed and re-sealed.

About $1.07 million has been allocated to the re-sheeting of dirt roads within the council’s boundaries.

The following unsealed roads have been identified as a priority for the re-sheeting program;

Yumali Road,Yarindale Road,Homestead Road,Heym Road,Nine Mile Road,Field Road,Gordon Road,Bennier Road,Krueger Road,Lymn Road,Railz Road,Heinrich Road,Heron Road,Two Wells Road,Taunta Road,Deepwater Road,Pink Road,Seven Mile Road,Block K Road andDadd Road.
