    Blackhill Challenge 2011


    Rostrevor Lions Club''''''''s twelfth running of this tortuous course along fire-tracks of the Black Hill Conservation Park has been increased from 12.5 kms to 15 kms. This annual event was held on Sunday 30th October. Even the demanding new steep uphill section was quite achievable for the 108 runners who participated.

    A new venue, the Foxfield Oval on Maryvale Road in Athelstone became the new starting and finishing point for the twelfth running of the Black Hill Challenge.

    Simon Uppill was the clear winner of the event completing the demanding course in one hour, eight minutes and 33 seconds. Second across the line was Dan Searle who achieved 1:9:33. Third placegetter was Matty White with 1:11:7

    First woman to finish was Nicole Butterfield with 1:17:33. [Nicole had also gained first place in the female section in 2010.] Second in this section was Peggy Macqueen with 1:18:23. Third was Charmaine Symons with1:21:01.

    Major placegetters in male and female sections were presented with trophies. Cash prizes were also presented to a range of other contestants.

    Organisation of the Black Hill Challenge is a major participative event for members of the Lions Club of Rostrevor. A vital supportive role for the actual running of the event is played by members of the Four Wheel Drive Adventurers Club. Members of this club with their vehicles controlled strategic points along the route as well as supplying water to the runners. Members of the Campbelltown Chapter of St. John Ambulance provided First Aid Facilities.

    The Campbelltown City Council is a major sponsor and supporter of the Black Hill Challenge.

    The Royal Flying Doctor Service will benefit from proceeds of the event.

  • Presidents Report 2010

    This year has seen the introduction of several new initiatives for the Lions Club of Rostrevor the first of these was the regular weekly BBQ at Mitre 10 at Glynde and the second was our involvement with Lions Biggest BBQ in April.

    I wish to thank members for getting behind the BBQ at Mitre 10 it has been a commitment that has enable us to have a public presence as well as raising well needed funds for our various Lions Projects. I wish to thank Mr. Michael Russo of Mitre 10 for his approval to hold the BBQ and also to his staff for their help and assistance. The staff members have been very good customers for us. The barbecues were held on a weekly basis from October to April on either a Saturday or Sunday from 11 to 2. If we have numbers to help, it would be good if we could run it for a bit longer say September to May, however time will tell.

    One of our biggest concerns is our ageing membership and the need to recruit new members. We have had discussions with several prospective members during our barbecues and our Christmas Cake Sales but as yet no definite signings. I am considering running an information booth at the Shopping centres in our district to see if we create some interest amongst the community to join our Club.

    Once again our major event the Black Hill Challenge was very successful considering the hot day. I wish to thank Harry Tornow and his Committee for the huge effort in once again running this event which was the 10th Anniversary. I also must thank our partners in this event being the Campbelltown Council for their financial commitment as well as approval to use Thorndon Park, the 4 wheel Drive Adventurers for their assistance in manning the drink stations and looking after the contestants in the park and St John Ambulance Campbelltown volunteers for their medical assistance.

    Once again the Christmas cake sales were successful even though the door to door sales had to be curtailed at times due to the hot weather please see Roberts report later in the Bulletin.

    This year I changed the format of our Christmas Dinner to a BBQ lunch at my place instead of having a Hotel celebration as well as a BBQ, I believe this worked well as members were able to relax and enjoy themselves.

    Once again we worked with the South Australian Road Runners Club in provides Marshals and drink stewards from which we earn income that assists our Administration Account. I thank members and their partners for there help.

    Last year in May we planted further trees in the reserve behind the Campbelltown City Council Office, the use of a boring machine made the job much easier. This area has been planted by us for many years to recognize members who have died; we have received approval from Council to update our marker recognizing these members and this new
    pole and plaque will be erected shortly.

    Once again the Melbourne Cup day was in the hands of Ross Smith and his committee and a good time was had by all even though the weather was against us I thank Harry and Veronica for making their home available again. A particular thanks to Veronica considering her health was not the best at the time; we wish her a speedy recovery.

    One of our long serving members Ray Thornton has had to resign due to ill health; I have enjoyed his laconic sense of humor during my time at Rostrevor he will be sadly missed. I wish Ray and June all the best and will be keen to involve them any of our social activities.

    On the financial side we have had a fairly good year. We have been able to maintain our Administration Account balance and raise funds in our Activities Account to assist a variety of projects
