I have noted that no team as yet has been sucked in as Gary Rodgers did with Boost sponsorship and Wankaway ( Richie Stanaway ). The owner of Boost was trying very hard at the end of last season to get a team to take him/them on .



Unbelievable

so sad the mother has now passed.maybe a god send tho, how would she go on without her kids?As for that scumbag father........dump his body in landfill somewhere.
He doesnt deserve dignity,his family didnt get any did they.  >:(

Totally agree. Poor bloody kids and wife did not deserve this.   She had been living in fear for a while (this mornings news).  Huge percentage of cops time is spent on domestic violence.   Society/govts needs to do a lot more in the mental health area...and I dont mean more bloody royal commissions or committees.

And the news this morning is reporting that the mother passed away last night. Like Bird said........................how could you even comprehend such an act?

If life throws you a few lemons, there are avenues of support available. It's a bigger man that can seek some help than go down that path.

General Discussion / Re: BOS Jockey wheel experience
« Last post by mike.c on Yesterday at 06:54:03 AM »
We have had one on our Metalian for 2 years. I'ts been great, we travel with the flat foot installed and the wheel stored in the car. Height adjustment is easy although if the draw bar weight is up there a small electric drill will struggle to wind it without a full battery, no problem though the winder works perfectly.

We installed it originally to beef up the jockey wheel to handle the forces of dragging the trailer out of a sticky situation if we got stuck and had to unhitch, while we have never had to do this in anger I have no doubt that it is up to the task.

why have so many HUGE companies come out in recent months.... i would expect Daves corner store to **** up, but these places with huge finance departments
Simply put - Once one was outed, the others have gone "oh s#1t" and are now self reporting before the regulators step in.

The Coles/Woolies/Target dramas affect salaried junior managers. The salary itself was well above the award rate when compared to the contracted 40h week in "ordinary time" hourly rates, but when worked out over the actual hours worked (typically well in excess of 50h per week), the hourly rate was below the award. It wasn't much of a problem until extended trading hours (especially Sunday trading) was introduced. It's the penalty rates applied to wage earners income for the "out of normal hours" shifts which salaried workers did not get, which caused most of the wage disparity. Because salaried workers are largely un-represented, and every employee is on an individual salary, it took a long time for one of the companies to be caught out.  The Bunnings issue was to do with super calculations for some part time employees. Their payroll system wasn't calculating the correct rate for PT employees that went above the threshold hours over the course of a full financial year.

As a salaried Woolworths Group employee of 23 years, I can speak with some personal experience. Whilst I was on pretty decent money with good incentives and fringe benefits, the hours, rosters, and lifestyle sucked. Thats what drove me out a little over a decade ago. My job in middle management required that I worked almost every public holiday, only had 1 in 3 weekends at home, a 12hr day was standard, and there were only 14 weeks of the year when I was allowed to take annual leave. Now I'm on significantly less income in a government job, but literally work 1/2 the hours and I now have a life.

Hi all,

We are heading to fraser in a couple of weeks and am wanting to know if you can get to Woralie on a high tide? I know you can only cross Awinya creek on a low tide but was thinking if we can get to Woralie on a highish tide then we could head up to Awinya without crossing Awinya creek.

Cheers Andy
