1 Good luck at Rosebery on Fri Dec 21, 2012 8:16 am


Good luck to those who will compete at Rosebery. It was one of my favourite carnivals, running in the cauldron was an experience in itself.

I remember I was lucky enough to win the Gift in '87, and I received a beautiful sash and trophy, the silver tray we still use and will use on Xmas day, even though we are far away now in London, my emotions always go back to the coastal carnivals at this time of year.

Great to hear from one of Tassies' most successful pro runners from the 1980's - Wayne Johncock. Burnie Gift winner & a Stawell Gift finalist among a host of other wins and big race performances.

Thanks Wayne - glad you found the forum and hopefully you can keep up to date with what's happening with the sport.

Danger man Robinson on track to keep winning gifts Save
Dec. 20, 2012, 1 a.m.

LAUNCESTON athlete Andrew Robinson will be hoping his early season form continues at the Rosebery Carnival on Saturday.

Robinson has been beaten only once at the professional meets so far.

He lowered his colours to Jacob Despard in last week's 120-metre sprint at the West Park carnival but later in the day won the 400m handicap.

At Penguin the week before, he took out both the 70m and 120m.

Robinson is backmarker off 5.5m in the $1000 Rosebery Gift and will use the race as a stepping stone to the Latrobe and Burnie gifts.

Cooee's Brendan Smart is attempting to win the Rosebery Gift for a fourth time but has drawn the same heat as Robinson.

The $1000 Rosebery Wheel will feature scratchmen Franco Marvulli and Luke Ockerby while the Tasmanian 400mm underhand championship and the Tasmanian singles drilling championship are the main events for axemen and rock drillers.

Thanks Youngy for the reply - its a great forum to follow the news and also see some familiar names - especially from our era in the 80s and 90s.

Best Wishes to you and your team over the Christmas period, I wish you every success. Its a long way from where I am in the rain and cold in London to (hopefully) the sunshine and beer in Burnie and Devonport.
