Very Successful Tournament [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 2 February 1951

Very Successful Tournament The Alexandra Bowling Club staged their annual tournament last week-end. There is only one way to describe the fixture - a big success in every way. Over 200 players participated, some coming from as far away as Box Hill, Kyabram, Nagambie and Broadford. The green, as usual, was in tip top order, and unstinted praise in that direction was frequentiy made by the visitors during the course of the tournament. Green keeper Stillman, we would say. is in a big way -responsible for such a splendid green. Results: Pairs- Sloane and- Meredith, of Seymour, were victorious, the runners-up being Brown and Bil lings, of Kyabram. Rinks - Dr. Rawson, E. Morris, S. Stillman and Fred Webb (Alexandra) won. Runners-up being Grinter, W. H. Wateis, B, Coller and L. Chambers (Alex andra).

Gray, manager of the team, gave explanations of the various phases of service life. Mr Gray, in opening proceedings, said the meeting was not a recruit ing rally, but was designed primarily to stimulate interest in defence mat ters. The position was grave, was very,_ very serious, and the only. way to be prepared was by being trained. Australia's foreign policy had never been directed at aggres ion at all. Its only aim was to have a regular Army and regular defence forces. It was everyone's duty to join the militia or be available to the reservists pertaining to the three services, and defend themselves and those who it was ...

RACE MEETING AT ALEXANDRA. M. O'CONNOR WINS TREBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 2 February 1951

RACE MEETING AT ALEXANDRA. M. O'CONNOR WINS TREBLE: The Alexandra Race Club held its second meeting for the season on Sat urday last. The weather was a .ittle on the warm side, with the conse. quence that the course was rather hard. These factors possibly were re sponsible for the attendance being lower than usual. It was noticeable, too, that the usual entry of horses from the Healesville side was not in evidence. There was a race meeting at Healesville on Monday last. The gate takings at Alexandra on Saturday last amounted to £108. All officials worked well to ensure the smooth running of the program. It was most disappointing to see a field of only two in the Ladies' Bracelet. Hitherto this event had attracted good fields, but such was not so this year. M. O'Connor, the local jockey, had a most successful day, riding three winners. Mr. W. Sandiford, the-popular pre sident of the club, was the recipient of congratulations upon the success of his two horses, Laureation and Meadow L...
