The Narrabri Golf Club hosted the Goesunder Cup this afternoon which was won by the Village People. The Goesunder Cup is an annual event at the club where four teams – the Westies, Village People, Urbanites (town) and Mexicans (out-of-towners) – play for bragging rights. It is a single stableford event where a team’s score is calculated based on the average scores of all respective team members. The Westies took out the 2018 Goesunder Cup and were confident of their chances again this year, however, they finished runners-up to the Village People. The Village People were victorious with a score […]
Thumbs up to the Boggabri RSL sub-branch for giving all ex-servicemen and women an Australian flag on their graves to be attached every Remembrance Day and Anzac Day from now on. Looks great!
The cemetery is alive with flags – so much emotion fluttering in the breeze.
I’m so proud of the Boggabri RSL for taking part in this project.
Thumbs up to the letter to the editor in Tuesday’s Courier about the Inland Rail, and the previous letter expressing the same opinions.
Full credit to the ARTC for having information sessions here and seeking public opinion, but those opinions are worthy of answers from the ARTC.
Planners don’t do things on a whim so there must be good reasons for the rail corridor now under consideration, but let’s make sure all aspects are considered before we start building this fantastic project which will bring great benefits.
The team at Delta Agribusiness Narrabri has come up with a great way to get people out of their normal routine by offering a free sausage sizzle and cold drink every Friday. The idea came from experienced team member Arthur Miskle to give back to the people in the community who are in need. The team at Delta Ag all got on board with the generous idea with everyone playing their part. Delta Ag branch manager Pat Lash said that everyone is feeling the full effects of the drought so the team felt like it was only right to give […]
An enthusiastic (and slightly nervous) group of girls turned up at Cooma Oval on Saturday morning to try their hand at something new as the four-week Sixers Girls Cricket League began. The four teams, aptly named after current Australian female cricketers, took the fields with each batting pair facing four overs. One of the matches saw the Perrys take on the Healeys. The Perrys opened solidly with Molly Crockett (18) and Josie Harvey (11) making 29 runs before Chelsey Stait (5) and Stella Laws (4) put on nine together. A further 15 runs were added by Imogen Lubke-Wood (6) and […]
Mobile phones will be banned from NSW public primary and secondary schools next year. Western Australia is introducing a phone ban which will be tougher – no phones all day including breaks – and no smart watches, ear buds, tablets or headphones unless they are for class work. School authorities said students were distracted by their phones and the ban will encourage personal conversations and reduce ‘cyber bullying.’
Feral deer are rapidly becoming a serious pest in new areas, and have been sighted in the Nandewar foothills among other places not far from Narrabri. A reader has recalled to Topical that some years ago he was at the Narrabri golf club chatting to a German tourist who was gazing out at the mountains. “Are there deer up there?” the visitor asked. “No” he was told. “You should introduce deer there” the visitor said. “Why?” our informant asked. “So people can shoot them” was the reply.
