Wear a
badge to
honour
By Jessica Howard

War veterans, cadets and community members will
walk the streets of Moorabool this month to sell ANZAC
badges ahead of the national day of remembrance.
The ANZAC Appeal commenced in late March in the
lead up to Anzac Day on Wednesday, April 25.
RSL State President, Robert Webster said almost one
million badges were distributed throughout Victoria
this year.
“These badges are distributed to our network of
285 Sub-Branches in every corner of the state; they
then assemble their teams of local volunteers, often
veterans, who spend hours selling in the streets of the
community,” he said.
“The money we raise from the sale of Anzac Appeal
badges helps current and former defence force
personnel and their families when in need”.
Ballan RSL President, Rick Campey said he is confident
the local community will once again generously
support the appeal.
“Our RSL volunteers, many of them veterans, are
ready to offer a variety of Anzac Appeal badges. The
high level of energy and commitment shown by our
Sub-Branch volunteers as they raise the much needed
funds, is truly humbling,” he said.
“Each and every volunteer is determined to get into
the community and not only sell Anzac Appeal badges,
but to share their stories and experience”.
This year, Ballan RSL will hold an Anzac Day Dawn
Service at 5am at the Anzac Tree in McLean Reserve,
followed by a breakfast at the Ballan CFA, and
Moorabool’s only march and afternoon service.
The march will commence at the Ballan RSL at 1pm
and conclude at the Ballan Cenotaph, with afternoon
tea to follow at the Ballan RSL Hall.
Bacchus Marsh RSL will hold their march on Sunday 22
April, starting at the Bacchus Marsh hospital cenotaph
to the RSL Hall in Main St, and an Anzac Day service
at Coimadai Memorial Park at 11am.
Anzac Appeal badges can be purchased from local
supermarkets, RSL-Branch or from local volunteer

Bald Hill potential increases
The ins and outs of Bald Hill
Bald Hill is a 120ha reserve located on the
western edge of Darley in Bacchus Marsh, and is
characterised by significant gullies and ridge lines
and provides a green western edge backdrop to the
residential areas of Bacchus Marsh and Darley and
provides great views to Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne,
the surrounding farming land and the Lerderderg
State Park.
The reserve is easily accessible to local Bacchus
Marsh residents, via both the local road and shared
path networks, and is well connected to the Western
Highway and the Bacchus Marsh Train Station.
Since 2001, there has been a significant effort
made by Moorabool Shire Council to rehabilitate

A number of out of control fires occurred
throughout Moorabool over the Easter
weekend. Owners of Ballan, Greendale,

fires. The occupants were interviewed by
police, with summons pending.

Ballan Police were involved in the hunt for

MOTORING MOORABOOL
Local cars climb the Hill
By John Orchard

Last Sunday (April 8) saw the 2018 running of the annual Myrniong
Historic Car Sprints. This event continues to grow in popularity
each year, was located on Korobeit Road in Myrniong and has a
relaxed atmosphere, quality cars, and ample spectator viewing;
the event always promises an enjoyable day for competitors
and enthusiasts alike. Entry fee: $10 for adults, children free.
Scrutineering of the competition cars started at 8.30am with the
sprint races starting at 9.30am. The course is an 850 metre hill climb
sprint, the start line on level ground, then rising to a slight crest,
then into a steep uphill right curve, followed by a crest turning left,
and finally down a dip and a rise up to the finish line.
Competition classes for the day include Cars built for racing up
to 1960, Sports Cars built up to 1975, Touring Cars built up to 1970,
Reproduction Sports Cars & Specials built up to 1975. Your senses
are bound to experience many different sounds & smells (Castrol
R40 ….. Mmmmm) Not only was there competition vehicles but
also competition cars on display, the event is run by the Austin 7
Club, so there is a good chance that you’ll see something cool that
wasn’t at other local car shows.
Prior to race day I thought I would have a quick pre catch-up
with classic car guru Steve Pike from Darley. Steve, now in partial
retirement, runs his own workshop, building and repairing classic
cars; in-particular Healys. Steve ran his 1959 3 litre Healy on the Steve with a customers car at the rear of his workshop.
weekend and this car has been his ‘Sport Production’ class car
since he built-it-up back in 2004.
Steve, who has lived in the area since 1976, has been competing for
about 8 years but building cars for 38 years. Steve’s wife Helen is a
strong supporter, and we all know ….. “A partner that gives good
support, makes you competitive in sport” (I just made that up, ha
ha ). Steve’s son David, also afflicted with the motor enthusiast
bug, runs his own coach-building business in Gordon, having
spent many years learning and assisting his father,
Another car that I spied in Steve’s workshop was a very unique
vintage weapon; a Lister ‘Knobbly’ replica, built by Steve back in
2014. This car, running a Jaguar racing 3.8 litre 6 cylinder engine
and putting out 330hp, competed for its first time on the weekend.
First events for any performance vehicle, especially one built
from the ground-up, will soon highlight any bugs that need to be
ironed-out. Steve says the estimated value of the Lister replica is
around $250k! Steve has a another Lister replica in its early stages,
this time running a ‘period’ Chev 283; lookout for a story on that as
it nears completion.
Next week – a round up of the Myrniong Sprint day.
