Re: Glenelg Oval Overhaul

Got a lump in my throat.

I've spent over a third of my life with the GFC, most of the time under that grandstand.

Can still remember the first time I walked in those rooms as a kid in April 1980 when my cousin, then an injured player, took me in to meet the players and get autographs after we beat Centrals. 10 000 + at the game and in the clubs rooms afterwards you couldn't move. I've still got some of those.

The early days getting players ready for training and seeing my boyhood hero walk in - Cornesy as coach wanting to know who's fit and who's not - will forever be etched in my memory.

Sleeping on the training benches after GF commiserations *sigh*

End of season piss-ups

Fitness sessions and sweat I've lost.

Most of all I'll remember the people especially those no longer with us: Bert Cugley, Simmo, Chas Flook, Freddy, Ol' Doc Duguid.

Grandstands can be rebuilt, the legends of those rooms can't but they'll never be forgotten.

Love my club

Re: Bali/Phuket

Not actually Bali or Phuket, but a place potentially as good as either... am off to Boracay in the Philippines next Saturday. It is the home of White Beach, one of, if not the, world's best beaches (it has won the title a number of times). Those in the know say it is at least the equal of both Bali and Phuket.

Re: Thailand, Laos & Cambodia

Getting closer to our much anticipated return trip to Thailand. The itinerary this trip includes a week on Koh Samui, this will be the chill out time. Then a week in Hua Hin, this will be the golfing time. A few days in Bangkok, this will be Mrs Coronas shopping time. Then home the long way via Hong Kong. Our first trip there so keen to take it all in. Thanks to one SA Footy Forum member who helped set it all up. Hoping he can also arrange the bin put out/retrieval bloke for us while we are away!

Re: 2017 Champions Trophy

Sri Lanka with an epic run chase to defeat India. They reached the target of 332 with 8 balls to spare.

Kohli with a blistering 0 from 5 deliveries.

All 4 teams are on 1 win and 1 loss meaning the last round of matches are effectively knock-out quarter finals.

India vs Sth Africa

Pakistan v Sri lanka

Re: Thailand, Laos & Cambodia

A quick wrap of our 2017 holiday, writing this while it is fresh in my mind as we sit waiting for our flight home.
Holiday was booked in June 2016, at a time when my work life was very uncertain. We made the decision, that after a 4 year hiatus, an overseas break was in order. It had been 3 years since our last trip, and would be 4 by the time this one rolled around. Consequently I was a little conservative with parts of our hotel choices. Flights were a no-brainer & booked on frequent flyer points. Between booking holiday & going, I had relocated to Melbourne, Mrs C still in Adelaide. This would be my 4th trip to Thailand. :D

We rendezvoused in Sydney. I arrived a few hours before Mrs C, so snuck in a few jars – at $10 a go I was pleased it was only 1 night in Sydney. Stayed at the Stamford Sydney airport – nice room. Off early the next morning, to Sydney international. Smooth check in, quick look through duty free, nothing purchased. Onto Qantas club for breakfast. Called to board on time, although we sat on tarmac for 45 minutes waiting for some dude on a connecting flight. Pre-ordered lunch – went the Barramundi, very tasty. Nice with the Chardonnay. Mrs C grabbed a duty free watch on board. Plane was about 90 minutes late into Bangkok, bad weather en-route apparently. This meant a bit of a mad dash to the domestic terminal, to make our connecting flight out to Koh Samui. :!!

Checked into Chaba Cabana Koh Samui. This is at the northern end of Chewang Beach. Clean comfortable affordable resort, everything you need, nothing you don’t. We enjoyed a very relaxing week here. The plan all along was to just chill out the first week. Eat, drink, swim, sleep – rinse & repeat. Perfect. Both of got a bit too much sun on the first day, Mrs C tans & goes brown. I burn, peel & go back to white! Enjoyed a few evenings at the Islander Bar – this is in the heart of town. Highly recommended for a good feed, cold beer, footy on the big screen, and 69baht Mojito’s. That’s about $2.20! Enjoyed watching the Hawks beat the Pies here. :drinkers:

Moved onto Hua Hin for the second week. We stayed at the Chom View Hotel, well south of the town in Khao Takiab. This part of Hua Hin is still being developed, and there is a lot of building activity in the area. We soon worked out the best transport method into town. Local Songtaews charge 10baht (about 40 cents) per person anywhere along the route. I played 2 rounds of golf here. Once at Sea Pines, which was very nice, and the other at Banyan, this was an unreal (see review in golf section) golfing experience. Shout out to Sam who runs the Take 5 bar in Khao Takiab, he invited me as his guest to Banyan. All it took was a few drinks at his bar (tough work) and a meal, gotta eat somewhere. Mrs C did a bit of shopping in Hua Hin, but we were holding off for the “main event/s” that were still to come. Witnessed the Hawks draw with the Giants here.

As things turned out, we bailed a day early out of Hua Hin, and headed up to Bangkok. We had previously stayed at the IResidence hotel in Silom, and chose this once again. It’s very close to the BTS line in Bangkok, which is the best way to get around the big Mango. First arvo – we went to MBK which is a huge shopping complex. We went a little silly buying stuff here 4 years ago. By memory we didn’t buy anything this time around. Not really sure why but nothing really grabbed us. The following morning we went to the Emporium on Sukhumvit – this was my stuff up, as I thought we went well here last time. After consulting a map, and a little google searching realized we really wanted the Platinum Fashion Mall. Mrs C had a day out! Took the opportunity to meet with one of my Bangkok based work colleagues for dinner one night, this was followed by more shopping. Bangkok is one big bloody shopping Mall! :Hangman:

Moved onto Hong Kong after 4 days in Bangkok. Our first time here, stayed at the Eaton Kowloon – solid place. A little disappointed by the shopping. To be fair, after Thailand prices, anything looks expensive by comparison. Settled on some touristy sight-seeing instead. Harbour Cruise, Day trip to Hong Kong Island & the laser light show on the harbor at night among the highlights. Saw the Hawks not beat the Cats here!

I don’t think anyone can go through a 3 week holiday without a few “Carey-esque” ****. Mine included assuming my international baggage allowance on Qantas, would be the same (42kg) with Cathay Pacific – it wasn’t. Assuming I could access the Qantas lounge in Bangkok – enroute to Hong Kong – I couldn’t it does not open until 2 pm. Often getting onto either the Bangkok BTS, or the Hong Kong MTS and getting onto the wrong platform/train. I did manage to find the Irish Pub in Bangkok – Molly Malone’s first pop – priorities! :drinkers:

Other observations –
1. Koh Samui has become more commercial in the last 4 years, several new shopping complexs had popped up.
2. Hua Hin golf not as good as in Pattaya. Although the 2 courses played were very good, it’s just harder & more expensive to play here.
3. Bangkok as busy and manic as ever.
4. Hong Kong have the most aggressive Indian tailors encountered to date – ****.
5. Thai people are gentle, considerate and dignified. Chinese are ****.
6. 75% of Chinese men smoke, 100% of Chinese people with an umbrella will poke you in the eye with the ******* thing. 120% of Chinese people walking on the footpath will stop in front of you for no apparent reason. 200% of Chinese people will shout across a room rather than get up and go and talk quietly to their mates! :axe:

At this point we are looking towards Hawaii for our next holiday. Love Thailand, and will definitely return here, and we enjoyed Hong Kong, and can tick this off the list.

All the best,
Corona.

PS – Hope the Bin bloke did his job!

Veterans Cricket

Just finished my first full season of Veterans Cricket, and have really enjoyed it.

Over in Victoria it is really a very well organized competition with several metro & regional comps operating. I played in a team based out at Croydon, with one of my workmates, he is the captain. We play in the over 50's comp. There are also over 40's, and over 60's. The over 60's is particularly well organized mid week matches, carnivals, over seas trips. I can see myself pushing on now, albeit 9 years away still. Essentially the games are a little more social than regular Saturday games with the young bucks. There are still some decent players getting around though in the 40's & 50's.

I can't honestly say there are any blokes I would describe as "quick bowlers" a few handy types, one bloke squared me up (copped that one in the plums) but usually it is slow medium stuff. A few ok spinners about. Most teams have a few good batters, then it drops away to the "tragics"....

Games are of modified rules - 36 overs a side, batter retire at 40, bowlers max 6 overs, each team must use 7 bowlers. 180 will win most games, but 200 is doable. Only 7 games (8 team comp) and finals. Games every second week, so plenty of recovery time, which is needed. The better players are blokes who still play Saturday Cricket.

Our team made the semi finals however went down to a team of mainly Sri Lankan blokes. They play the game very differently to Australians, and are best described as very excitable!

I don't know of a structured Vets comp in SA, certainly not at an over 50's levels. Despite that I understand SA have entered an over 50's team at the National championships to be held at Easter this year in Orange. Don't know where they will select the players from?

In Victoria, it was a matter of nominating yourself and a selection panel would look at the my cricket stats, including rep games and choose 4 teams. I considered nominating, but have other plans for Easter, so I decided not to go. I had a decent season & get the feeling I could well of got a game!

Always next year I guess. Very happy to have topped the batting for my club, and I think in the top 3 in the league, due to the retirement rule - I averaged 110 for the season.

Re: Thailand, Laos & Cambodia

Well gents the time has come, I'm off on my honeymoon tomorrow morning! After a ripping day Saturday, as gay as this sounds it was actually perfect, the day was fantastic.

So thanks to the likes of Boon, Corona, Jimbo, Kooka and of course the Pirate I'm going to try and get a look at the venues listed below;

BANGKOK -

We'll Transport via the Sky rails and be sure to get to The big mango, MBK and the Platinum shopping mall. (What is the BTS Line?)

Koh Samui-

Ang Thong marine park, Chewang, Phensiri, the rocks, Islander Bar, Phen Siri and the Scandic grill. If after all these bars were sober enough we may try some snorkling in Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan


Khao Lak-

Bang Niang markets, Phang Nga Bay and then for a feed, The Golden elephant restaurant, Little mum and dads restaurant and the Boom Boom party time restaurant.


Phuket -

Been here plenty of times (This is number 8) don't need much help here but never been to any of the above places.

If anyone thinks Ive left anything out please don't hesitate to suggest i'll be all ears....

Thanks again guys

Re: 2018 Broadcast Coverage

I am pleased to announce that SANFL is back on radio this year with 1079 LIFE once again broadcasting SANFL games on a weekly basis.

Life have been SANFL broadcasters since 2002 even getting in one game last year when the Eagles brought them in to broadcast their Eagles Community Carnival Day.

The station will be broadcasting a game every week through the season and also plans to cover the state game and all finals. Radio veteran Doug Oakley will head the commentary team.

In addition the station will introduce SANFL ONE , a one hour pre-game show and 30 minute post game wrap, hosted by myself, meaning each game day broadcast will go for 4 hours.

Life's 1st game will be the Easter Monday clash between Norwood and Sturt at Coopers Stadium, SANFL One will start at 2pm with first bounce 3.10pm.

Re: Australian Tour of South Africa

I thought the sanctimonious bullshit may have died down by now. Atherton, Tendulkar, Broad, Anderson, Afridi, Du Plessis, Philander etc etc have all been in the spotlight for ball tampering, but I can't ever recall their being such a tidal wave of faux outrage and virtue signalling. Yes, Bancroft and Smith should cop their whack from the ICC with a fine etc, but calling for them to have their careers ended is ridiculous*.

I think people are just upset that our moral high ground has been eroded and we now look no better than the South Africans, English, Pakistanis etc. Well, perhaps it's a great chance for this Australian side to just let their cricket do the talking from now on.

*there should certainly be a review of the leadership structure and team culture. A team (sport, workplace etc) under good leadership empowers even the most junior person to have voice and the confidence to question. If this kind of culture existed in our national side there's no way this would have happened, because someone would have felt empowered enough to quell any notion of ball tampering.

It looked like Guthrie sledged Gawn after the siren about his missed shot at goal.

He certainly did, not sure what's to be gained from it at that stage.
No it never happened, just a “cool story”.

I saw Guthrie say something, I saw Gawn remonstrate and I saw a Melbourne player get in front of Gawn and stop him from advancing towards Guthrie.

I wouldn't say it's a "cool story", but it's a true one.

Re: Thailand, Laos & Cambodia

Alright! We've made it home. Here's the rundown of the activities we did, anything outside of activities were spent in the Pool at the Banthai Beach and Spa Resort. The hotel was sensational, decent size rooms and very good air-conditioning. The hotel is in a great location based about 100m from the Patong Beach and 60 metres from Banglore Road. The hotel has three decent sized pools all with bars. Each of the three pools has different happy hours so you can make the most of it and right yourself off pretty easily :lol:
One thing i wasn't aware of is that it was Thailand New Year on the friday or otherwise known as Songkran Festival. For those that don't know about it its bloody hectic and be prepared to get wet! Everywhere basically closes and for those that stay open cover their shops with ponchos. Be prepared to get wet.

John Grey Sea Conoe Tour. Hotel Transfer included. This was a Kayak tour around the islands of Phang Nha Bay. This Included three stops around bay (can't remember the names :lol: ) going kayaking through the caves and into the lagoons, absolutely amazing scenery. At first i was a bit devo we couldn't kayak ourselves but pretty quickly realised it was good to have a guide do it for you. Throughout the day the put on a pretty decent spread of food that ranged from fish, chicken, veggies, noodles, fruit, soups and some deep fried food. Although the first two kayaks were impressive the main event came at night time in the Batcave. Before you go into the Batcave you along with your guide make this special artwork out of a banana tree to place into the water to give thanks for some Thai beliefs. Once that is finished you splash throughout the Cave in total darkness and the water along with he rocks make the splash go a flouro blue colour. Its pretty impressive. It cost about 3,500BHT booked through a tour guide and is one i recommend.

Our hotel offered a complementary shuttle bus to Old Phuket Town which we decided to do the save money on a driver to see the Big Buddha. Not much is needed with this one, a must see and once your at the top have remarkable views looking over Phuket and the beach.

Splash Jungle. Cost about 1,450 BHT. if you go here and you've been to water bomb park in Bali don't go in thinking it'll be in the same ball park because you'll be disappointed. The park is only small and has only one main set-up for slides.
The different options are
Super Bowl - a slide you can go single or double, slide down the slide and go around in big bowl and then into the pool.
Body and Tube Slide - nothing special really more for the kids but the best one is the blue tube thats covered in darkness until you hit the water
Family Raft Ride - fits 3-6. the best one. highly recommend going on with 6 people who have decent weight to them so you can get right up the side of the slide and turn backwards a couple of times before you hit the water.
The Whizzard - Rainbow coloured single slide which 6 people can use. Each slide starts in the dark then the you come down the final slope you slide into the open along the horizontal.

Shooting and Go-Karting
They have range of guns you can shot from shotguns, sniper rifles and magnums. Sniper rifle being the cheapest and the shotgun the most expensive. You have the choice from 10 bullets to 20 bullets and also 30 bullets with the price increasing if you decide to shot with more bullets. I paid about 1,030 BHT to shot 10 bullets with the Sniper Rifle. First time shooting a gun it was something i enjoy. After the shooting we went across the road to the Go-Karts. 800Baht got us 15 mins on karts which went 70km/h max. Theres two Go-karting tracks across from each other with the other looking like theres more corners and less straight parts. Theres about 8 different kart options you can chose but i think they don't allow you to go higher than 80km'h unless your pro. Everyone loved the track and had a ball. Highly recommend.

The Flying Human - Zip lining through the rainforest.
This was pretty fun. Theres three different courses you can choose. Course A (3,450 BHT)- is the longest and goes for 3 and half hours, 28 or so zip lines. Course B (2,900BHT) 2 and half hour and 20 zip lines and Course C (2,300BHT) which was only 12 zip lines. We went with course C. Whatever you do don't do this hungover the first walk about 10 mins up the very steep hill and you'll be shagged from the get go :lol: We found the lesser amount to be perfect as the novelty wears off bit after the first 8 of so. You'll found the first couple a bit scary but once you realised its quite safe the nerves go away and you'll enjoy it a lot more. highly recommend this activity.

The last of the activities was the cruise around Phi Phi islands which was meant to be a sunrise event but due to a low tide had to wait about an hour to leave. Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Included 7 stops with 3 snorkels. The first snorkel stop was very choppy and we got cained by waves. Some of the crew saw a reef shark but this reef did have a lot more the big colourful fish than or next stop. We missed one location due to the choppy water but did get the third snorkel which was more enjoyable in the calmer water. Saw smaller fish in the this snorkel and less variety than the first. The water at some of these locations were crystal clear, some of the best I've seen and the final stop has the best beach I've ever seen.

Would def head to Phuket again but reckon we'll try and Vietnam and Cambodia first.
