Camperdown veteran takes out elite class

SEUMAS Marwood is more than familiar with Camperdown’s Lakes and Craters three-day event.

ThePakenham-based rider hasbeen making the trek to Camperdown “on and off” over the past 30 years, and over the weekend put in a strong showing to take out the CCI three-star class on his mount Wild Oats.

The pair have previously won the one-star class–going back “six or seven” years ago –and more recently finished runner-up in the three-star class in the Camperdown Horse Trials.

Marwood had not previously competed in the three-star class at the Lakes and Cratersevent, but went into the weekend’s competition with a clear plan of attack.

“I went there with three goals in mind,” he said.

“First, to win the class.

“Second, to win it with a score of under 60 –that puts you automatically on the nationals selection squad.

“Third, to get a score that would win it regardless of the size of the field.”

Marwood ticked all the boxes, finishing with a score of 50.8 –50.4 coming from his dressage, while he finished one second over in cross country and had clean jumps in the showjumping.

In his first competitionat Camperdown in 1986, Marwood –now 53 years old –said he had been inspired by Camperdown great and former Olympian Bill Roycroft.

“That was the last event Bill Roycroft rode in,” he said.

“He was 60 at the time. I’ve always drawn inspiration from Bill riding at that age. I’m not that old yet, but watching him compete still and be such strong rider at that age was inspiring.”

In other major classes, Tarryn Proctor won the CIC three-star class on ESB Irish Quest, Jacqui Bladier took out the CIC two-star on Ramirus and Callum Buczak won the CCI one-star on Joie du Lys.

Madeleine O’Callaghan won the CCI young rider one-star on Fernloch Allemande, Edith Kane took out the CCN105 on Maxicat and Hannah McLean won the CCN junior 105 on Incy Wincy Spider.

Lakes and Craters joint event secretary Jen Best said, with the introduction of a new 80-centimetre class to the international event, numbers were high over the four days.

“We had a very, very successful weekend,” she said.

“We were closer to record entries –there were 320 horses entered for the weekend.

“By adding that 80-centimetre class, we added an extra 110 riders.

“Barry Roycroft designed and built the new course for them. They had an absolute blast.”

Best said organisers had worked hard to incorporate the local community in the Lakes and Craters event.

Letters to the editor

CULTURE: The Wagga land council understood the spiritual significance of the Wiradjuri Regional Aboriginal Land Council site.Be part of solution, not part of the problemIf Jason Jolley is prepared to look beyond the façade of the Wagga Wagga LocalAboriginal Land Council, he will quickly learn how land and connection is the key tohealing our young people (“Board has lost touch with city’s Indigenous issues”,December 2).
Nanjing Night Net

The Wagga Wagga Local Aboriginal Land Council is more than just a physicalbuilding.

It has long been a meeting place for Wiradjuri people and is the spiritualhome of our Land Rights legends.

As a former Chair of the disbanded Wiradjuri Regional Aboriginal Land Council, I amwell-aware of the significance of that place to Aboriginal people in the region.

At the last meeting of the Wiradjuri Regional Aboriginal Land Council, I rememberwalking away from that building feeling as though we had lost a sense of belongingand community.

But the Wagga Wagga Local Aboriginal Land Council understood the cultural andspiritual significance of the land and put their heart and soul into revitalising the siteas a youth and community hub informed by history and culture.

CEO Lorraine Lyons has an open-door policy and anyone who steps inside thebuilding cannot help but be inspired by the memory of past Land Rights legends andthe vision the Local Aboriginal Land Council has for young Aboriginal people.

Lorraine Lyons is a passionate member of our community who came to the WaggaWagga Local Aboriginal Land Council with a strong track record in communityhousing.

She is not someone to turn her back on people in need, which makes ill-informedand personal attacks on her and the Wagga Wagga Local Aboriginal Land Councilso dispiriting.

Despite limited funding and with just two staff members to deliver programs andservices to members and the community, Wagga Wagga Local Aboriginal LandCouncil has established a number of initiatives including the BoxingCentre to keep our youth engaged and on a pathway to education.

Instead of negatively sniping from the sidelines, James Jolley should be a part of thesolution and support the Wagga Wagga Local Aboriginal Land Council’s positiveplans to use land, identity and culture to heal our young people.

We have lost our freedom while dosing on the couchAshraf Fayadh, a Palestinian poet accused of renouncing Islam, was recently sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia. He has no legal representation.

Twenty-sevenmembers of a minor Islamic breakaway group within Islam are also awaiting probable death sentence in Sudan.

The prophet Muhammad favoured ruthless punishments –including amputations and death –for so-called apostasy.

So is Islam the outstanding example of suppression of freedom of thought?

No, there are others.

For example, see recent reports of death-for-conversion-away-from-Hinduism in modern India.

And also Tasmania….

Yes, Tasmania, where at this very moment the Catholic Archbishop of Hobart is looking at being dragged through an “anti-discrimination” tribunal for the crime of distributing to Catholic school parents a document explaining the Catholic understanding of marriage.

Australians tend to think of our culture being one of freedom of expression.

Sorry.

That changed a while ago while most of us were dosing in front of our TV set.
