WAKEBOARD SA held the
second round of its state minor
competition at Caudo Vineyard
Secretary Daniella Lambert said
the conditions were some of the best
Wakeboard SA had seen.
"The weekend ran really well,"
"In the past we haven't always had
the best weather conditions at Caudo's,
but this was amazing.
"Riders had the best water
conditions from all the rounds we've
Thirty-six riders competed in the
second of five rounds and were split
into groups based on their ability.
Ms Lambert said the Riverland
had a reputation of hosting successful
"We have hosted the national titles
in Renmark before," she said.
"The feedback we received was that
it was the best titles yet."
The next Wakeboard SA event will
be a 'state of origin' competition ---
Victoria versus South Australia --- at
Mildura on Saturday, November 8.
Morgan will host a round of the
state competition in January, and the
Riverland is set to benefit from two
major wakeboarding events next year.
Berri will host the state titles in
February, and Renmark will host the
national titles in April.

at Caudo's A DROP in the number of Waikerie-Ramco
cricketers registered for the club's A grade and
B grade teams has sparked a call for last-minute
A grade captain Nathan Paschke said his side had
only just enough players, while the B graders were
still missing half their team -- despite both teams
scheduled to play their first matches of the season
against Loxton on Saturday.
"We've been training for three weeks now, and the
number of people showing up is concerning," he said.
"We're looking for anybody who's played cricket,
or anybody who wants to give it a go.
"They're more than welcome."
Interested locals are invited to either attend the
senior training from 5pm on Thursdays or contact Mr
Paschke on 0429 412 781.
Meanwhile the club is holding a 'come and try'
session for its junior teams from 4.30pm tomorrow.
The Smith Drive clubrooms will host a free
barbecue and drinks, with all primary and high school-
aged children welcome.
Options of a local Twenty20, one-day competition
and Riverland competition will be discussed and will
depend on interest.
Games could be played on either a Monday evening
for Twenty20 with no trainings, or Saturday mornings
for other competitions.
Everyone is welcome to come and have a hit in the
nets. Equipment will be provided, or bring your own.
Contact Mr Paschke on 0429 412 781 for more
information, or to express an interest in playing if you
are unable to attend tomorrow's event.
