December - January 2014

Hello Readers,yndecjan14Merry Christmas and a very safe and happy New Year to you all.
Santa will be coming to the Normanville Mitre 10 car park for the annual Christmas Eve show thanks to the Lions Club of Yankalilla and various sponsors.
Something to take the kids to for a nice family outing and perhaps to assist in wearing the little ones out a bit.
It’s that time of year again when we wash the cow dung out of the trusty trailer or ute get dressed up in silly costumes, and get in to gear for the Normanville
New Years Eve Pageant! Or you could take it easy and just watch everyone else do it. Our famous little yearly event attracts thousands of people to Normanville for NYE and this year will no different, so don’t miss it.
We had a late item from Kangaroo Island which there just wasn’t room for, but we will mention that the KI Field Day 2014 is well underway with the event slated
as a tribute to The Family Farmer. the committee is keen to hear from potential exhibitors from the island and mainland. It is 30 years since the first Kangaroo
Island Field Day was held and you can find out more at
Until next issue...

Hello Readers,Yankalilla regional News November 2013

This has been a very painful couple of weeks putting this issue together. We apologise for the hard copy delay as we had ‘circumstances beyond our control’ to contend with. The computer main server crashed and needed a quick patch up to finish this issue.

Remember every edition is always online by the 1st of each month - for those of you who can’t wait!
Having now finished this issue, there is much computer rebuilding and data recovery to be done before the next one.

The email system also had some problems at the same time. We hope we didn’t lose anything and that is another thing that now needs overhauling - addresses won’t change and they will all be working properly by the time you read this, all being well!

The local Op Shops appreciate your donations but Sonic Bombdon’t want your rubbish. Not all items left on their doorsteps are re-saleable. The cost to dump these items comes out of the small profits they work hard to achieve. Please think before you dump and don’t make your rubbish someone else’s problem or expense.

The Yankalilla Cruise is on Sunday 17th November from 10.30am. All the usual family fun and entertainment will be showcased along with the amazing cars.
See page 9.

The 2013 Yankalilla Show results and report are on page 10-11. By all accounts it was well attended and a great day with great weather.

Time to start thinking about the New Years Eve Pageant. See page 24 for details.

Due Date
The next issue is of course the Christmas issue and runs until mid-January. Get in early to get your spot as demand will be high. Don’t miss your opportunity to capture the seasonal tourist trade.

Until next issue...
