Chairman's Message 

I have just returned after three weeks holiday in Honolulu. Sitting by the pool of 
the Royal Hawaiian Hotel just fifty feet from the golden sands of Waikiki Beach I 
could not help but think of the song made famous by Ginger Rogers “I’m in 
heaven”. I know that dates me, however there is one thing about the old songs 
you can at least understand and remember the lyrics. My booking was organised 
by Astronaut Travel Service per favour of member Bob Lavigne who carried out 
the assignment in his usual efficient manner. Members where possible should give 
preference to those who ad vertise in our magazine. _ 

As I pen this epistle the radio announces that the Prime Minister will call a general 
election on December 10th. I would prefer the Government to see out its elected 
term on the basis that there never seems to be a tax increase during the final year 
of office. Perhaps I should not have used the words “Tax Increase”. The modern 
usage is “Tax Reform” which put into poetic words means “Don’t tax you, Don’t 
tax me, tax th at fellow under the tree”. _ 

You will find enclosed with this magazine a personal letter to each member. Please 
read same slowly, pause frequently, inwardly digest and then act immediately 
there on. The letter states the facts and I always consider that on the proper 
consideration of any matter a person should always ask himself “What are the 
facts”? In making this statement I am aware that “Maternity is a matter of fact; 
paternity a ma tter of opinion”. ____ 

Tattersall’s members proudly proclaim that this is the best Club in Sydney and 
every member likes to be considered a good “Tattersall’s Man”. Of course we are 
the best Club; what other Club provides the facilities that we offer. Commencing 
with the bedrooms on the top floor down to the public settling room in the 
basement. However, are you a good “Tattersall’s Man”. If so please look at the 
centre page* of this magazine and join in the joy and happiness of Christmas at 
your Club. Come to the Chairman’s cocktail party on Wednesday the 21st of 
December. After the party the whole of the First Floor will be open to members 
and their guests. The usual Chocolate Wheel with prizes even better than in former 
years plus poker machines etc. To avoid overcrowding the “Wheel” will be in the 
“Club Room” opposite the main bar. A Club is an assembly of good fellows 
meeting under good conditions. This is a golden chance to renew old friendships 
and make new friends. Be a good “Tattersall’s Man” come along with your wives 
and guests. As G.K. Chesterson wrote “A man’s friends like him and takes him as 
he is: his wife loves him and is always trying to turn him into someb ody else”. 

An important matter on the Committee agenda for our next meeting is to air 
condition the Club Room. This Room is now one of the main sources of revenue 
within the Club. It is a room which can hold over four hundred people for a 
convention with a 20 feet high ceiling. The cost would exceed $30,000, neverthe¬ 
less to be a first class room for all types of functions, in my opinion it must have 
air conditioning. The argument that we cannot afford to do so, does not hold 
water. I presume the same argument must have been used twelve years ago when 
other sections of the Club had air conditioning installed and the First Floor was 
neglected. Another matter is the use of a house wine. A first class club should 
have its own “House Wine” which would prove a great financial benefit to 
members. The painting of the Club interior is now completed, I trust to the 
satisfaction of all members. You can accept my assurance that your Committee is 
not a cul de sac to which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled. 

This is my last message to members prior to Christmas 1977. Christmass is a 
season of happiness and enjoyment. It is a time when relatives and friends 
separated by the restless struggle of life are reunited in a happy state of 
companionship and mutual good-will. A time when love of the person and not of 
money prevails. To every Member and his family on behalf of my Committee I 
wish a Merry Xmas with good health and happiness for the new year. 

Always remember 

“Money will buy a bed but not sleep, books but no brains, 

Food but no appetite, finery but not beauty, medicine but not health, luxury but 
not culture, amusement but not happiness, a house,

TABMARK - THE NEW LOOK 
T.A.B. SYSTEM 


Most Modern Betting Method 

Early in May this year the eleven City 
offices of the T.A.B. were equipped 
with a new type of selling terminal. 
This computer sub-system, named 
TABMARK because customers mark 
tickets with their betting details 
before placing the completed tickets 
into the terminal, is the second phase 
in computerising off-course betting in 
New South Wales and represents a 
radical change from past methods. 
Highlights of the TABMARK system 
are:— 

• Winning TABMARK bets can be 
collected at any TABMARK office. 

• Selling and paying is carried out at 
all windows open to the public. 

• Payout is faster. 

• A mixture of bets and winning 
tickets can be accepted by the 
TABMARK terminal at the same 
time. 

• Multiple bets can be made on one 
ticket. 

• Later closing of betting and a wider 
range of bets is provided in former 
manual offices. 

By January 1978 the T.A.B. plans 
for 350 of these terminals to be 
installed in 120 Branches and Agencies 
in Sydney City and outer metropolitan 
areas, Central Coast, Newcastle 
metropolitan area and Coalfields, 
Wollongong metropolitan area, Moss 
Vale, Bowral, Mittagong and Picton. 
At this stage the network will have the 
capacity to process 3,500 transactions 
a minute. Ultimately it is designed to 
handle up to 6,000 transactions per 
minute and to supplement the present 
BID system which has a capacity of 
9,000 transactions per minute. 

The prototype of the TABMARK 
terminal was produced in IBM’s 
Canadian development laboratories 
and field tested in Australia in the 
second half of 1973. Now they are 
manufactured in the IBM plant at 
Toronto, Canada, and have been 
installed on racecourses and in T.A.B.s 
in Western Australia and South 
Australia. 

The General Manager of the New 
South Wales T.A.B., Mr. John 
Robertson, said “After some initial 


hesitancy which was overcome by a 
programme of customer assistance, the 
new system has received rapid 
acceptance by punters.” John went on 
to say “Features most appreciated by 
punters were the multiple Double and 
Trifecta facility which allows up to 
40/50 bets to be recorded on one 
ticket and the ability to collect 
winning TABMARK dividends from 
another TABMARK office.” 

Mr. Robertson indicated that 
following the successful introduction 
of Trifecta betting which was proving 
to be very popular both on and off- 
course, new types of betting were 
being investigated. The T.A.B. is 
presently concentrating its efforts on 
increasing the present maximum of 
three Trifectas per day (1 Races, 1 
Greyhounds and 1 Trots) to the stage 
where all meetings will have a Trifecta 
coverage. 

For those Club Members who have 
not as yet placed a bet on the 
TABMARK system, the T.A.B. 
“TattersaH’s” Branch is right at the 
Elizabeth Street entrance. Here’s your 
opportunity to try for yourselves a 
betting system along the most modern 
lines. 


MELBOURNE CUP 
PAST AND PRESENT 

In 1977 — Club members and friends 
met for drinks and a meal at Tattersalls 
on the time honoured 2nd Tuesday 
in November. Club sweeps captured 
the imagination and the once a year 
punter suffered Cup fever. Lets turn 
back the clock as we look at a very 
early report on the very first Melbourne 
Cup. 

On Thursday, November 7, 1861, 
some 4000 out of Melbourne’s 
mushrooming population of 140,000 
turned up at Flemington racecourse 
to see the running of the first 
Melbourne Cup and three other events 
on the programme. 

The crowd travelled by road, rail, 
or Yarra River steamer with the 
Continued on page 4 



GLOUCESTER HOUSE MESSAGE 
Had a stint in R.P.A. Hospital 
recently. Cleaner told me there’s 
about 7000 beds and 800 cleaners 
— in some cases three working from 
the same family. 

In hospital there’s plenty of time 
for thinking — Conclusion . . . 

Never complain about your lot. I 
saw terminal cancer people 
powered by sheer guts and the will 
to live — they made me feel very 
humble. 

Courage and “Hearts as big as 
Phar Lap” keep them going. Their 
bright approach to each day is 
magnificent. Doctors, Sisters and 
Nurses have ever ready hands to 
help and shoulders to lean on — 
they’re wonderful people may God 
bless them.

PUNTERS SET RECORD 

TAB records were set in NSW and 
Victoria on the Flemington 
Melbourne Cup meeting. 

In NSW, the turnover was 
$7,814,613. In Victoria it was 
$6,711,555.50. 

In NSW, $5,831,530 was invested 
on the TAB win and place on the 
Melbourne Cup. 

The crowd at Flemington was 
83,200, compared with 81,118 last 
year. 

BEATING THE RADAR TRAP 

Fines from radar-detected speeding 
offences are big business for the 
NSW Government, with about $10 
million expected to have been 
collected in the past year alone. 

Not surprisingly the arrival of a 
device which its makers claim can 
outwit the radar used by the police. 

One is called the Super Snooper 
($199.00) — gives a 200 metre 
warning. Timed to beat the rap. 

Next move is for the Police — and 
I understand they’ve got the answer.

CHRISTMAS SUGGESTIONS! 

Writer David McNicoll has gathered 
few tongue in cheek Xmas gifts, a 
lift pole for touching things you 
wouldn’t touch with a 10ft pole. 
A skeleton for your closet, a black 
sheep for your family.

December, 1977 









Continued from page 3 
recently opened railway from Spencer 
Street Station the most popular route. 
The river trip, however, was probably 
more pleasant, with passengers being 
entertained by a nigger minstrel band 
while champagne bottles popped. 

Female racegoers in bonnets and 
billowing crinolines were well in 
evidence at the first Melbourne Cup as 
they paraded with parasols in front 
of the stand. 

Bookmakers shouted the odds to 
fashionable males wearing tightly 
buttoned frockcoats and tall beaver 
hats perched precariously on their 
heads. 


The rest of the crowd — including 
the inevitable hawkers, beggars and 
tipsters — favoured cabbage tree hats, 
bushy beards and moleskin trousers. 

Prospectors from Ballarat and 
Bendigo were also there and could be 
picked out by their bright red shirts 
popular with men from the gold 
diggings. 


GOLD! 

The mention of gold brings us 
up to date with the 1977 winner race. 

Gold and Black which gave Bart 
Cummings his sixth training triumph 


in 12 years, enabling him to eclipse 
the record of Etienne de Mestre, who 
won five cups in 18 years. 

Tattersalls club member Hugh Gage 
and his wife are joint owners with Mr. 
and Mrs. J. Harris. The In the Purple 
- Gem, 5 year old gelding ran second 
in 76. 

It was fitting he should start 
favourite and win in 1977. 

Hugh is a very active racing man. 
keen in Club golf too. He told golfer’s 
at Pennant Hills in September. 

“We will win the cup this year”. 
He did just that. 

Congratulations Hugh!

RACING REFORM CLAIM

Abe Davis wrote this letter to the

“Two reforms that revolutionised 
anomalies in racing through my efforts

WINING , DINING and CLUB NOTES 


The Wedding Reception of Julia & 
Bill Gobbert was held in the Club’s 
First Floor Club Room on Saturday 
24th September following the wedding 
ceremony at St Judes Church, 
Randwick. 



Julia is the elder Daughter of Bill & 
Grace Boddington of Randwick and 
Bill is the younger Son of Lindsay <& 
Gwen Gobbert of Coogee. 

One hundred and thirty guests 
attended the Reception including a 
friend Patrick O’Regan of San Fransico 
who flew out for the wedding. 
Congratulations were received from 
old friends Tom & Marie Nicholas in 
London and their Aunt Edna. 

* * * 

News from Gordon Terry who has 
taken a villa on Spetsae in Greece and 
would be happy to entertain any 
members passing that way. He 
mentions that son Scott has graduated 
from Sandhurst for the Queen’s 
Dragoon Guards, winning the 
Commandants Prize for Physical 
Training, and has been posted to 
Germany in command of three Chieftan 
tanks and is happy with his effort. 

Gordon reckoned the Savereyio 
Parade was a splendid affair; 700 
superbly trained, dressed young men 
marching in all splendour with all the 
pomp and ceremony that only the 
British seem able to successfully 
accomplish. Gordon must have felt 
proud when Scott strode out to 
receive one of only six prizes presented. 


When the cadets fell in for parade 
next morning, far above them a garden 
gnome was proudly carrying the blue, 
star studded Australian Flag, so Scott 
has left his mark on Sandhurst. More 
next issue.

New Mayor of North Sydney, Tony 
Salier has as his aim “give everyone a 
fair go”. Tony was a Fulbright scholar 
and graduated from University with 
first class honours. He went to the 
USA where he received a B.A. and 
Master of Law degrees from Harvard 
University. Tony is a regular Third 
Floor member excelling in both 
swimming and handball activities.

The Tattersall’s snooker tables 
gather many Club personalities, its 
great good na.tured fun to see the 
members involved. 

Here are a few who do battle on 
and off the tables — members Mousally, 
Lobb, Powell, Lavigne, Jacobs and 
Cox — just to name a few. 

Can’t you see this merry bunch and 
know the good natured exchanges that 
fly around? 

* * * 

Get-together was the operative 
word at the birthday party of Kath. 
and Reay Eakin’s son Timothy. 
Daughter-in-law, Lynette, had hers on 
the 24th, son-in-law, Colin McClughan’s 
was on the 28th, daughter-in-law, 
Christine, would qualify on September 
3rd, and Stephen and Jacinta on the 
7th. What better place for a common 
celebration than Tattersall’s. 

Thirteen members of the family 
were able to attend. The gathering was 
a very happy one, productive of lively 
conversation and hilarity, stimulated 
by the constant attention of Andy and 
his staff. The fine music must have 
percolated to the kitchen, as the chef 
served perfection in a great variety of 
dishes. 

* * * 

After enjoying the Spring and 
Summer racing, Mr. & Mrs. Bill 
Aitkenhead and Mr. & Mrs. R.P. Miller 
entertained New Zealand visitors Mr. 
& Mrs. Lumber and Mr. & Mrs. Harden. 
Club member Mr. Bert Miller and his 
wife were in the party too. 


Dr. Patrick Whitfield of Harley 
Street, London was in Australia for a 
Medical Conference in Brisbane. Club 
member Mr. William May and his 
family dined with the Doctor at 
Dinner on the fourth floor. 

* * * 

A joyful Marilyn Braine with parents 
Bert & Val, brother Peter (and his wife 
Susan), along with younger brother 
Rodney joined in 21st celebrations — 
they agreed Tattersall’s is a great place 
to have a birthday party. 

* * * 

Barry Murphy’s birthday was a good 
reason for a club party. Group included 
his mother Louise, Sister Magdalene 
(of St.Vincents Hospital). His sisters 
Maureen & husband Paul O’Mahoney, 
Pat and Barry Byrne and his wife Eva. 

* * * 

Charles Bingham’s sons, daughters 
and families gathered to celebrate Mrs. 
Binghams birthday along with her twin 
sister Kath. It was a dual happy 
occasion. 

* * * 

It was family fun when Mr. <& Mrs. 
Dennis Fordree celebrated their 
charming daughter Susan’s 21st 
birthday with a delightful dinner party. 

* * * 

Member John Ward said thank you 
to the Senior Staff of the Communi¬ 
cation Credit Union in the form of a 
complimentary dinner at the Club. 
John was a senior administrator for 
many years. 

* * * 

Jeff Meikle had a great 1 8th birthday 
party in the dining room. His parents 
along with brother Steve and his sister 
Carelle made it a memorable night. 

* * * 

Popular personality Don McNiven 
entertained his sister Margot (on a visit 
from New York). She was accompanied 
by her eldest children Brian and 
Barbara. Both were born at 
Rockhampton, Qld. Don’s sister 
Margot has been living overseas for 
thirty years.

Billiards & Snooker 

Phil Darby and George Mousally 

win Tournaments by Sid Lane 


This time I am able to report the 
conclusion of our very successful 
1977 tournaments which resulted as 
follows: 

SNOOKER: Phil Darby - 1st; Doug 
Cameron — 2nd; Colin Cain — 3rd; 
Gordon Salier — 4th. 

BILLIARDS: George Mousally — 1st; 
H. (Digger) Lobb — 2nd; David Cohen 
3rd; Warren Foster - 4th. 

Phil Darby was “owned” by Stuart 
Adams in the Calcutta Sweep but after 
the auction Phil was able to buy a half 
interest in himself so it was a very nice 
financial result for botl\ parties. Doug 
Cameron was owned by Arthur 
O’Connor; Colin Cain by Peter 
McGrath; Gordon Salier by Phil 
Byrnes. All interested members will 
want to congratulate the winner, the 
placegetters and the owners. In fact 
the players and spectators were given 
an excellent opportunity to do this 
immediately after the final when a 
small function was held in the Second 
Floor Buffet to which there was an 
open invitation announced just prior 
to the playing of the Snooker final. 
This proved to be a very pleasant way 
to end the Tournaments and is worthy 
of repetition in the years to come. 

Four days after winning the Snooker 
tourney and the associated Calcutta 
prize, Phil had to play his first round 


of the Championship and came 
through with flying colours by beating 
the ruling champion and hot favourite 
— Warren Foster. 

The Billiards Handicap Tournament 
was won by the perennial favourite, 
George Mousally who was very closely 
pressed by a virtual outsider — Digger 
Lobb. The difference was only eleven 
when George went to the table for his 
last visit, so it was really anybody’s 
game at that point. 

During the season Dick Thorne 
made a 43 break at Snooker — the best 
of his career, and the best of any 
player in this year’s matches. As a 
matter of interest he failed to pot a 
very easy black which would have 
given him 50 and a memorable 
achievement. 

The Sub-committee headed by Jack 
O’Neill wishes to thank all players and 
spectators for their keen interest and 
co-operation, and looks forward to 
many more successful seasons for our 
mutual enjoyment. 

The Billiards and Snooker Tourna¬ 
ment conducted along championship 
and handicap lines proved of great 
interest to all. Keenly fought games 
provided members with some inbuilt 
club thrills. It must rank as one of the 
best proving “yoif win some and lose 
some” — above all have fun. 


Continued from Page 7 

of the race in the first lot of betting, 
claimed to be on in the 4 horse race. 

Lochie accompanied me home in the 
car and I suggested that the Stewards 
should have deducted a percentage 
according to the price of the non 
starter. I gave him a scale of what it 
would be. Even money 50%, 6 to 4 
40%, 2-1 33%, 3-1 25%, 4-1 20%. 

Next mornings Guardian Newspaper 
(Lochie was its reporter) came out with 
a heading that Bookmaker Abe Davis 
said that the Stewards erred, and I was 
called to A.J.C. Office to apologise to 
the Stewards. Anyway the change was 
adopted immediately in all other states. 
The A.J .C. being the last to take notice. 


(2) The second reform was the simul¬ 
taneous call over the address system of 
Interstate Betting prices and activities 
taking place on various courses. 

I had a talk to Alan Frost who was 
than the Secretary of the Hawkesbury 
Racing Club to get a broadcast of the 
Interstate betting and he agreed and 
had the Betting Service inaugurated, 
that is now a major part of Racing 
throughout the Interstate and Country 
Centres of Australia. 

Previously, Interstate operators had 
a private service and the general punter 
was betting in the dark. ' _ Abe Davjs

Maurice and Alan Green at play. 


They’re all 
talking about 
the Green boys 


Proud father Sol Green, a very 
active member and Club supporter 
provided the run down on the activities 
of his sons, Maurice and Alan — both 
members of our Club too. 

Here are some of the details as 
reported. 

A recent survey conducted by 
the International Wool Secretariat 
on fashion marketing indicates that 
consumer spending patterns are 
changing, and that within the next 
decade less money will be spent on 
clothing and more on leisure and 
travel. 

That trend is already well established 
in Australia, although it has been 
largely ignored by the local fashion 
industry now struggling to come to 
grips with other such concrete 
problems as high labor costs, cheap 
imports and the recent IAC recom¬ 
mendation that government protection 
of the industry be phased out. 

There has been enormous rationalis¬ 
ation of the fashion industry, creating 
a climate in which manufacturers are 
reluctant to spend money extending 
their business in the face of an 
uncertain future. While many 
manufacturers have opted for a “wait 
and see” policy, the Surry Hills, 
Sydney, fashion house of M & A 
Green is determined to face up to 
reality. 

Says managing director Alan Green: 
“It’s staring us in the face that the 
consumer’s priorities are shifting away 
from clothing towards leisure activities. 
We’ve had a pretty hectic time along 
with every other fashion manufacturer 
and if we are to continue in the 
business, successfully that is, we must 
supply those items the consumer 
wants.” In acknowledging that fact, 
M & A Green is actively going after 
the consumer dollar by investing 
$100,000 in a new range of action 
sportswear. 

For 20 years this manufacturer has 
produced middle line sportswear 
merchandise in the lower to medium- 
price bracket, under the label Image. It 
is the company’s boast that it can 
produce the cheapest fashion T-shirt 
on the market. 

The new collection, to be called 
Action Image, has been created by one 


of the company’s young designers, 
Lesley James. It has been based on 
practical, fashionable sportswear for 
such sports as tennis, squash, hockey, 
swimming, basketball, jogging, cycling, 
athletics and sailing. Says Lesley 
James: “The range is representative of 
a way of life, the way people spend 
their weekends. The clothes are geared 
to specific sports but they are also 
meant to be worn by anyone who 
enjoys the outdoor life.” Most of the 
garments are made of a cotton/ 
polyester interlock in basic white with 
blue, red, green and gold trim and are 
color co-ordinated with shoes, caps, 
visors, socks and carry bags. Lesley 
James chose the interlock cotton 
because it is more fashionable than 
the traditional synthetic fabric used 
in most tennis and squash clothes, 
yet it is practical and easily follows 
body movement. 

After M & A Green developed the 
concept of a new action sportswear 
collection, they took it around the 
large retail stores and specialist 
sporting stores. The reaction proved to 
be disappointing. Explains Alan Green: 
“The retailers were somewhat 
apprehensive, they were concerned 
about the amount of fashion content 
in the clothes. We are convinced of the 
potential of the range. Of course this 
venture worries the hell out of us in 
terms of capital costs, but I know it 
will work. You only have to go running 
in Centennial Park to bump into 
whole families doing the same thing. 
Australians want to be healthy.” 

Alan and his brother and partner 
Maurice have taken a lease on a shop 
in downtown Sydney and renovated 
it to the tune of $40,000. The shop, to 
be opened in early October, will carry 
the same name as the new range. The 
idea is that it will appeal to sports and 
health-minded people. The shop will 
carry $60,000 worth of marchandise, 
the bulk carrying the Action Image 
label but there will be specialist 
garments by manufacturers like Taft, 


Adidas and Speedo. 

This isn’t the first time that M & A 
Green has departed from traditional 
fashion industry lines. Six years ago 
the company opened one of Sydney’s 
first model factories at Clyde in the 
industrialised western suburbs. The 75 
employees at the factory work a 
four-day week in a temperature- 
controlled plant equipped with the 
latest machinery. The staff are all 
members of the Clothing and Allied 
Trades Union and have a real voice in 
the running of the factory. Says Alan 
Green: “Restricted facilities and a 
labor shortage in the city area and a 25 
percent absenteeism prompted our 
expansion to Clyde.” Over the last 
three years Alan and Maurice Green 
have spent $300,000 on new machines, 
absenteeism is down to less than 10 
percent and efficiency is up. Sewing 
times have decreased by 25 percent 
with the Clyde factory alone turning 
out 1500 garments a day. 

The locally made Image range is 
produced between the Surry Hills and 
Clyde factories with 50 percent of the 
total range being imported from Hong 
Kong. In the last year the company 
has looked to the export market, and 
is currently exporting dresses (mostly 
knitted) and some items of sportswear 
to New York and the U.S. west coast. 

The Green brothers have stuck 
their necks out with the latest venture, 
but they are optimistic that the big 
retailers will follow on and begin to 
stock the new action sportswear range. 
Once their shop is opened and 
established, they plan to organise a 
City of Sydney tennis competition 
held in conjunction with the Festival 
of Sydney. Says Alan Green: “Who 
knows, perhaps the finals could be 
held in Martin Plaza.” 

The fashion industry may be in the 
doldrums, but it won’t stay that way if 
more manufacturers realise that a 
prosperous future lies not in timidity 
and caution, but in taking their 
merchandise to the real marketplace.

The remodelled The Australian go if course, where the Australian Open 
was played in November 


Turnaway roll up and a full time 
sheet was achieved. The new layout 
proved testing but Tattersall’s 
members will not be alone when the 
Australian Open is played there. 

The picturesque par-five 18th hole 
with its flower-lined lake will provide a 
grandstand finish for the best golfers 
in the world and the spectators. 

But it was not always like that at 
The Australian Golf Club. 

For the new 18th is the old ninth 
hole. 

As recently as last August Jack 
Nicklaus made a flying visit to the 
course and realised that “the ninth” 
would make a magnificent finishing 
hole for the Australian Open 
championships. 

He made an immediate decision to 
reverse the order of each nine which 
also meant more alterations and 
replanning. 

And the hole will certainly challenge 
the best golfers in the world when 
they go for a big drive and long second 
shot over the water in search of a 
birdie which could win for them 
thousands of dollars. 

The mammoth task facing Nicklaus’s 
specially “imported” American course 
supervisors included moving 520,000 
yards of soil, constructing five lakes 
covering eight acres, transplanting 450 
trees, the tallest being 45ft, and laying 
40 acres of turf. 

Not one of the 450 trees replanted 
had to be purchased. Every one came 
from some more densely populated 
area on the course. And the loss rate 
so far has been astonishingly low — 
only 50. 


Oldest in Australia 

The Australian Golf Club is the 
oldest in Australia. 

Formed in 1882 it had its first 
course in Moore Park. In September, 
1895, the course was moved to Queen’s 


Park, Waverley, when 11 holes were 
opened. The third move was in 
February, 1899, to Botany and the 
present course was bought in October, 
1903. On April 15, 1905, the club¬ 
house was opened but on November 
29, 1931, it was destroyed by fire. The 
present clubhouse was opened on 
March 8, 1933. The course was 

originally designed by Hutchinson, 
Martin and Carnegie Clark, modernised 
by Dr. Alistair Mackenzie in 1926 and 
about eight years ago the New Zealand 
international golfer and course 
designer Sloan Morpeth made some 
alterations to the front and entrance.

Epicureans 

by Peter Ashby 

THOSE MINI SPRING ROLLS! 

The Epicureans have had it busier 
than usual with a visit to the Royal 
last month then recently a “Night in 
Singapore” at the Club. 

“Boeing Boeing” was preceeded by 
the usual hello drinks in the Lounge 
then dinner and followed by chicken 
and champas — loads of it really. 

Dorothy and Ted Lane and visitor 
Donna Tokaly agreed the comedy was 
hilarious although the theme may be 
somewhat hackneyed. The situation 
comedy will always draw laughs when 
the production is slick with a good 
dialogue accompanied by flashes of 
exposed shapely limbs. Yes, well — 
ho hum! they did keep me awake! The 
walk from theatre to lounge can be a 
leisurely affair past many fur and 
jewellery stores. 

The Singaporean encounter com¬ 
menced with champagne, meat balls 
and mini spring rolls. The meat balls 
were delicious but the spring rolls were 
heavenly, the pastry seemingly semi- 
translucent, a quality enhanced by 
saporific succulence. They were in far 
too short a supply. 

Bob Swinbourne, assisted by pretty 
wife Faye, led the gathering through 
the fine flavours of Singapore. 

Donna Toboly featured in the 
nights festivities by just missing on all 
expenses paid holiday in Singapore but 
she did manage to win a magnificent 
cook book of eastern delicacies. 

Don’t forget to book immediately 
for the final Epicurean assembly of the 
year on 29th November, the dinner 
dance, no less, with the combined 
delights of dancing, tasty foods and 
fine wines.

Swinging music followed the cocktail hour to add gay scene on the Main Club Room. 
Presentations were made for the Champions of 1977. 

Sammy Block a consistent contributor to the magazine and a driving force of 
the athletic floor entertained a large party. Mrs. Block helped Sam. 

Bruce Upcroft and Neville Amy may not be the fastest swimmers in the Club 
but they have very few that could beat them on the dance floor. They performed 
liked champions. 

Anglea (Mrs. Colin Love) accompanied by her dad, the popular Tony 
McSweeney helped with the presentations. 

Committeeman Arthur McCamley was asked to convey best wishes from all

TED JOYE SHOWS “A TOUCH OF CLASS" 

ALAN BROWN, ROGER FARRELL & 
HUGH KELLER STAR IN OPENING 
EVENTS 

So as to enable holiday members to 
take part in the opening event of the 
season, racing was deferred until the 
Thursday following Eight Hour Day. 

Some excellent dashes were recorded 
over the short course with Lord Ted 
Joye partnered with (Flying Fish) 
Roger Farrell breaking all existing 
records. 

It was a great pleasure to welcome 
Roger our 1969-70-1 champion (beard 
and all) back to the fold together with 
Alan Brown and Hugh Keller, lining up 
on the board. 

A welcome was also extended to 
new swimmer Stuart McAllum who 
may have got under the handicappers 
guard and snatched two victories in 
succession. 

Some fine individual efforts were 
recorded by Alan Brown, Roger 
Farrell, Hugh Keller, John McLean and 
Michael O’Dea. 

Swimmers who holidayed overseas 
included Chairman, Jim Comans, 
Leigh Bowes, Les Foley soaked up the 
beautiful warm climate at Waikiki, 
whilst Norm & Bella Rogers gallivanted 
around the high spots in Europe. Ian 
Joye sojourned in Korea. Third Floor 
habitues are in for some exciting and 
thrilling lunch time races with new 
members Neil and Ron Rogers (sons 
of our Norman), Denis Wilson, Doug 
Ferris, Alan Brown, Russell Debney, 
Michael McCormack, Bryan Mortensen, 
Roger Farrell, Harry Turner, Martin 
McRobert, Tony Salier and David 
Barnett competing against each other. 

• 

Congratulations to Tony Salier, 
David Morrissey and Ken Finn on their 
election to North Sydney, Mosman 
and Randwick Councils respectively. 


• 

Pleasant happening when John 
McSweeney’s wife Alexandra presented 
him with a daughter, making Tony a 
very proud grandfather and as the 
writer quoted “a grand parent does 
not really amount to much until a 
baby has spit up on his shoulder”. 
Colin Love, Tonys son-in-law had an 
unfortunate accident resulting in a 
couple of months in hospital with a 
broken leg. 

A bachelor party was tendered 
David Dobbin in the Sportsman’s 
Room. By all reports it was a “wow”. 
David weds lovely Christine Watts and 
flys to Fiji for his honeymoon. 

Had some news from Nick Whitlam 
who is manager of American Express 
in Hong Kong. 

Trophies to be competed for during 
the season are “Silver Sharpe” (Donated 
by A.J. McSweeney) for all points

SKI COMMITTEE ASKS FOR 
YOUR VIEWS 

The Ski Club Committee will meet 
to assess the ski season just finished 
and the potential for next year, as well 
as the period between seasons. 

We would like to hear from 
members who may have suggestions 
for possible undertakings or activities 
— just drop a line to the office. 

Some of us are, already thinking of 
another trip to Falls Creek next year 
and, if you can’t wait, there are the ski 
tours to Europe and America such as 
a repeat of the highly successful 
Yugoslavia trip which took place last 
year in conjunction with JAT Airlines 
and which is available again this year. 

At home, here, summer trips and 
vacations in the Snowy Mountains 
offer great opportunities for fishing 
and many other pursuits for families 
and individuals — we have not so far 
embarked on this kind of undertaking 
but if there are some interested we will 
examine it. 

For those who skiied Thredbo and 
Perisher with the Club this year there 
can only be that pleasant, satisfied 
feeling of knowing that these occasions 
were about as good as one could wish 
with ideal snow, weather and 
accommodation. If only every season 
could be as good! 



“Sublime satisfaction” could perhaps best 
describe the appearance of Tony & Carol 
Westhoff after one of our superb Roslyn 
dinners. 



The person responsible - our chef supreme, 
“Miss Cordon Bleu” - Sue Phillips in great 
form on and off the slopes. (The hand you 
see is an unknown asking for a second 
helping).

HANDBALL 
NOTES 


by Peter Ashby 


FAVOURITE TAKES 
TATTERSALL’S PLATE FINAL 

Favourite Michael O’Dea won his 
second Tattersall’s Plate in a tense, 
tiring final against another prolific 
winner of this event, Ron Rogers. 

The Tattersall’s Plate has become 
the most sought after title in the 
handball circuit and the finalists in all 
years form a very elite group of 
sportsmen. 

The closest score in all games in this 
year’s Plate was the 31-25 victory by 
Ron Rogers at the expense of Jim 
Campbell in a quarter final. All games, 
however, were closer than any 
indication given by scores. None of the 
winners at any stage could afford to 
allow the pressure to ease. 

The first semi final gave victory to 
Michael O’Dea against Ron Tubb 
(Coogee) 31-14. Michael took an early 
lead and went on to win comfortably 
in a long game. 

The Ron Rogers — Gary Stubbs 
(Clovelly) semi went to Ron 31-17. 
Level at 5 all after ten points was the 
closest Gary was to victory. Ron 
forged away to leads of 12-8, 20-10, 

30- 15. 

The final was played in a final 
atmosphere. It was pressure handball 
throughout the hour the game 
occupied with Ron taking the 
offensive in the early stages and losing 
the advantage of winning the serve to 
be down 1-4. 

Mike surged farther ahead to a lead 
of 8-2 but even on Ron’s serve points 
eluded him and the 4-1 ratio 
continued with Mike leading 12-3. 
This break cast Ron victory for he was 
never closer than 8 points to the 
champ at any later stage of the game. 

The play did not produce any 
excitement and had Ron attacked 
ceaselessly throughout I consider the 
result would have been the same. The 
bracket of points on Ron’s serve from 
5-15 to 8-17 produced three rallies of 
208, 188 and 210 hits each. Michael 
went on to win 31 -20. 

The Grand Handicap 

This marathon event engaged the 
attention of sixty four players and 
resulted in sixty three games before 
John Macquire emerged victorious 
over David Murray. 

David did lack practise when the 
final was eventually played, however, 
and he paid the penalty by going down 

31- 41. 


The Club Championships A Grade 

Neil Rogers, made considerable 
impact on the A Grade championship 
field by accounting for Bill Sellen and 
Charles Robinson, the latter in a great 
game 21-11, 20-22, 21-19. He then 
went down 2 sets to nil to Mike O’Dea 
to allow him into the final against 
brother Ron Rogers who had 
accounted for John Mclnerney in one 
of the brightests matches of the year. 

B Grade 

Bill Blakemore, as he accurately 
predicted, carried off another title in 
his inexorable march to the Club 
Championship crown. Bill’s game has 
speedily improved beating John Byrne 
in the final. 

C Grade 

Equal favourites Tony and Gordon 
Salier fell by the wayside to give 
Richard Horne his first victory. 

Gordon Salier survived a tough 
encounter against Arthur O’Connor to 
earn his finalist rating. 

D Grade 

This competition saw the emergence 
of a future star in the impressive shape 
of winner Stan Droder. Stan completely 
overshadowed fhe field. 

The John Barnes Variable Handicap 

This brain child of assistant 
secretary, John Barnes is a winner and 
several players are availing themselves 
of the opportunity of challenging 
opponents who would normally be far 
out of their competitive reach. 

There is no truth in the rumour 
that John Barnes leads the comp, 
because he continually changes the 
rules. 


PRESENTATION 

NIGHT 

This pleasant evening for all present 
proceeded as planned with Peter 
McGrath presenting the Tattersall’s 
Plate trophy, always donated by 
Norman Rogers to winner Michael 
O’Dea and runner-up Ron Rogers. 

Tony McSweeney made his 
presentation of the “Silver Sharpe” 
Trophy to winner, Bill Blakemore and 
runner up John Byrne. 

One of the two trophies donated by 
Arthur Browning, for the C Grade, 
went to Richard Horne, the champ, 
and second placegetter, Gordon Salier, 
Arthur O’Connor did the honours. 

Syd Kay made his own presentation 
for the D Grade Championship to Stan 
Droder, winner and runner-up Tim 
O’Donnell-Maher. 

The Grand Handicap winner, John 
McGuire, received his trophy, which 
was donated by Bill Hannan, from 
John Mclnerney. 

Arthur McCamley presented the 
trophy he donates annually, the 
Ramazan Double Trophy, to winners 
Bill Blakemore and David Murray 
(absent) and vanquished Syd Kay and 
John Barnes. 

John Barnes made his own present¬ 
ation of trophies to the winners of the 
John Barnes Doubles. John Mclnerney 
and Stan Droder defeated John 
McGuire and Tony Salier in this event. 

Last years winner of the most 
improved award, Ven Hrouda, made 
the presentation of this years trophy 
to Martin McCurrich.
