NEXT MEETING: Coming Soon

Trewern and Watson crowned fairest and best!

Gun modified driver Aydan Trewern and rising youngster Brooke Watson have claimed the major awards at the 2015-16 Albany Speedway Club presentation evening on June 18 at Motel Le Grande.

Trewern was again named the fairest and best senior driver after another stellar season in his super quick car, winning multiple races at his home track of Attwell Park which included success in the feature race during the final round of WA Modified Sedan Series which wrapped up a fifth series crown.

Watson has been a rapid improver since coming on the junior sedan scene and she was rewarded by being named the fairest and best junior following a sensational 2015-16 season that included a number of wins on her home track whilst also competing well in numerous meetings abroad.

The daughter of former WA street stock champion Wayne and sister to fellow rising speedway driver Blake also won the best presented junior and finished third in the overall points standings.

Travelling member Hayden Mortimer (259 points) won the junior sedan points trophy with Bianca Kennedy in second and newcomer Hope Batchelor third.

Kennedy was named most improved junior and Batchelor impressed in her debut season to win the junior rookie of the year award.

The prestigious club champion award went to dominant formula 125 driver Sam Jewell, who collected 416 points during the season.

Rising modified sedan competitor Miranda Ball was recognised for her excellent season by winning the most improved senior award and Phillip Lockyer took home the senior rookie of the year title.

Tracey Saunders was awarded the best presented senior and Bill Beeck was named the best presented open wheeler.

Paul Belfield topped the limited sprintcar points standings, Trewern narrowly downed Ball in the modified sedans and Robert Wolfenden was too good in the production sedan overall standings.

The competitive street stocks club points chase was taken out by Paul Bowman from Freddy Kinsella and Tim Coxall while Jewell won the formula 125 standings from Beeck and Jacinta Tester.

Chris Pittaway was acknowledged for tireless work around the club by being named the club person of the year.

Other award winners were Craig Tester (best crash), Ron Pittaway (busiest busy bee award) and the formula 125 division (president's award).

A large crown of drivers, members, volunteers, sponsors and fans were in attendance at the presentations.

Healthway joins forces with Albany Speedway Club

Albany Speedway Club is pleased to announce that Healthway has again partnered with the club, sponsoring junior development for another year in their quest to improve the health of West Australians.

Healthway has joined forces with ASC for many years now, and their financial support of the junior sedans has been greatly received during that time.

Again Healthway has approved further sponsorship of the club, to be the naming rights for junior development and for that we are extremely thankful.

Our club promotes the following messages as part of our ongoing agreement with Healthway and we encourage all members, competitors and spectators to adhere to the following.

The objectives of the Healthway sponsorship program are:

  • To encourage healthy lifestyles through the effective promotion of health messages relating to Healthway priority areas;
  • To reduce, where ever possible, the promotion of unhealthy messages or brands which undermine Healthway objectives;
  • To facilitate structural and policy change within organisations and venues to create healthy environments; and
  • To increase opportunities for priority populations to participate in healthy activities.

 

Smarter Than Smoking

Smoking kills

Every year in Australia, approximately 15,000 deaths occur as a result of smoking. Some of the diseases caused by smoking include lung cancer, bronchitis, heart disease and stroke. Smoking kills more people in Australia than all the people killed by alcohol, other drugs, murder, suicide, road crashes, rail crashes, air crashes, poisoning, drowning, fires, falls, lightning, electrocution, snakes, spiders and sharks.

Smoke-free is the norm

West Australians are mostly non-smokers, with approximately 85% of adults and 94% of school-aged children in Western Australia choosing to be smokefree.

People who start smoking at a young age are more likely to become regular smokers, smoke more heavily, have difficulties quitting and are at greater risk of getting smoking-related diseases.

The majority of adult smokers say they wish they had never started and that they would like to stop

Addiction to cigarette smoking

Nicotine is the addictive drug in tobacco

New smokers often feel dizzy and sick from tobacco smoke, but some get used to its effects. As they continue to smoke, their bodies learn to depend on nicotine and they can tolerate smoking more and more.

When smokers stop they may get cravings and feel anxious, hungry, and irritable, and find it hard to focus on what they are doing.

Social and emotional factors also contribute to someone becoming addicted to smoking. For example, people may feel they need to smoke when they are at a party, when they are with certain friends or feeling stressed or bored.

People do not need to smoke many cigarettes to become addicted to smoking. Young people can be at risk of becoming addicted to smoking even if they only smoke occasionally, such as at parties or on holidays.

 Support for quitting

Someone who is addicted to smoking may find it difficult to stop or cut down. They may crave cigarettes and experience withdrawal symptoms as their body adjusts to not having nicotine. Getting help with quitting will give smokers a much better chance of success. They can:

Visit their doctor for advice on quitting methods or products

Get support from family or friends

Call the Quitline 13 QUIT (13 78 48)

Visit www.quitnow.gov.au.

 

Smoke Free Guidelines

WA Health recognises that exposure to secondhand smoke is a proven health risk, and an occupational health and safety issue for staff, patients and the community.

The most effective way to protect staff, patients and visitors of the WA Health system from the adverse health effects of secondhand smoke is to provide a smoke free environment.

Smoke free environments:

  • protect and improve the health of staff, patients, visitors, contractors and volunteers
  • protect smokers and non-smokers from the health risks associated with exposure to second hand smoke
  • complement community-wide tobacco control measures that are reducing the prevalence of smoking
  • set an example to other employers and workforces, particularly in Government and health-related areas.
