CHANGING OF THE GUARD FOR ACTION SPORTS TRAINING CENTRE IN JINDABYNE, AND WORK COMMENCES ON THE NATIONAL SNOWSPORTS TRAINING CENTRE

After more than 30 years of operations, the Berchtold family have sold Action Sports Training (AST) to Snow Australia, with day-to-day management of the centre to transition in time for Term 1 programs.
AST has been in operation since 1988, initially as the Jindabyne Trampoline Club, and has been owned and operated by the Berchtold family since its inception. AST operates community acrobatic programs from the custom-built training facility inside the Gymnasium at the Jindabyne Sport and Recreation Centre.
Under Snow Australia’s management, it is intended to be “business as usual” for the popular community and schools’ programs, which provide training and classes to over 400 local children each week during the busy periods.
Snow Australia is working with the NSW Government to redevelop the precinct into a world class National Snowsports Training Centre and the acrobatic facility is an important component of the vision. Snow Australia CEO Michael Kennedy said the acquisition of AST is an important milestone in Snow Australia’s journey to develop a top-level training venue for all snowsports athletes in Jindabyne. “This is another big step forward towards our vision of creating world-class training facilities and a permanent base for our athletes at elite, development and community levels, where they can train off-snow all year round. Our intention is to build on the legacy that Andrea and Ursula have created with AST and to integrate acrobatic training into our operations in Jindabyne, which is growing every year."
Local Board Director Steve Cooper confirmed a commitment from Snow Australia to continue the work and objectives of the Berchtold family’s 32-year involvement with local athlete development, and community connection and support. “Like many Snowy Mountains families, we too have experienced Ursula and Andrea’s inspiring energy and expertise in creating opportunities for local children at many levels. Snow Australia is committed to maintaining that level of experience for future generations, and we look forward to continuing AST Community support programs such as the annual June Long Weekend Snowsports Sale at the Jindabyne Community Hall,” Cooper said.
Community and local schools’ programs will re-commence as usual in early February, with a drop-in community information and enrolment afternoon planned for Monday 1st February from 3.30pm to 5.00pm at the Gymnasium - Jindabyne Sport and Recreation Centre. In attendance will be the acting Snow AUS AST Coordinator David Parr who also is the Snow AUS Park and Pipe Coordinator and Development Coach, and Snow AUS NSW/ACT/QLD Administration Manager Cathy Lambert.
In addition, a very special fare-well and thank you to Ursula Berchtold will be held on the following Friday 5th February. “We invite current and past AST pupils and parents to drop-in between 4.30 and 6.30pm on Friday 5th February, share some memorable stories from the past 32 years of operation and celebrate with some light refreshments,” Cooper said. “Both Ursula and son Andrea Berchtold will be in attendance, and we look forward to welcoming all with some formal words of thanks and farewell at 6.00pm”.
Work has also commenced on the first stage of the $5 million National Snowsports Training Centre (NSTC) development at Jindabyne Sport and Recreation Centre. Initial construction has begun on the Olympic-size airbag facility, the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere, and other upgrades to the Jindabyne Sport and Recreation Centre will follow. The Centre will serve as the base for Snow Australia’s high-performance programs and already includes office space, accommodation for athletes, a gym and other training facilities.
Snow Australia Chief Executive Officer Michael Kennedy said the commencement of construction works is a great milestone.
“I can confidently say that the airbag will be among the very best in the world and will be highly sought after by athletes from all over the world to come and train in Jindabyne year-round,” Mr Kennedy said.
“The National Snowsports Training Centre will have a profound impact on Australian athletes’ capacity to maintain and enhance their international competitiveness. It will serve as a base for our high-performance programs and will also provide a focal point for pathway programs and the broader winter sport community to come together.”
“I would like to thank NSW Office of Sport, the Deputy Premier John Barilaro for the Government’s ongoing support. We are looking forward to working with NSW Office of Sport, NSWIS and the local community to maximise this special opportunity,” he said.
NSW Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the National Snowsports Training Centre would be a world-class airbag training facility that will attract winter sports athletes from around the world.
“Seeing excavators and earth works at the site is an exciting development in a project which will have many benefits for our region, not just from a sporting perspective but also economically through jobs, investment and tourism,” Mr Barilaro said.
“The centre will be open all-year-round, enabling Australia’s leading winter sports athletes to be at their peak at all times.”
Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the NSW Government is committed to improving the quality and quantity of sports infrastructure in regional NSW.
“The dry slope at the National Snowsports Training Centre is going to give Australia’s best athletes the chance to train in their own backyard 365 days a year,” Mr Lee said.

Life saving equipment for pool

Cooma Swim Centre will soon be fitted out with a defibrillator thanks to a joint funding agreement between the NSW Government and Snowy Monaro Regional Council.
It comes after the community led a push for funding, with the state and local government answering their calls.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the funding will help save lives.
“Nobody ever wants to be in a situation where they need to use a defibrillator, particularly when they’re having fun with family and friends at their local pool,” Mr Barilaro said.
“But this defibrillator will help put many people’s minds at ease. Just knowing that this life-saving equipment is on hand will mean we don’t have to worry about the worst case scenario...

Great initiative and something that should be extended to all pools in the council area.

Wonderful for Cooma Pool but how is it that in this day and age, every public pool is not required to have a defib? Also does that mean our other pools such as Berridale do not have one - its not like there is a local shopping centre close by with one!

Defibrillators are not that expensive to purchase and every Council pool should have one supplied by Council.

While North Sydney pool gets $9 million from the regional development fund. Oh the NSW government is so generous

Hope there fully qualified in there use and they should have an Oxy Viva also as standard equipment

What about charges for a baby to enter the pool being abolished disgusting that you charge the same as a 15yr old.

And what about the year round opening of the pool we've been waiting 2 years for???

What happened to the pool? is supposed to be for the community but looks like its been made into someone's private training pool.

Harry’s hot start

Rhythm Cricket Club seamer Harry Sidhu has enjoyed the best first half of a Monaro cricket season in recent memory, with his teammates hoping there will be more to come when senior cricket resumes this weekend.
Harry has taken 21 wickets in his first seven matches, conceding less than five runs per wicket and on average taking a wicket in every 15 balls.
His figures of 7-16 against Bombala in round 6 were a personal best for him and the best locally since Dalgety’s Simon Freebody took 7-13 in the 2013/14 season. He has backed up this performance with figures...

Bombala Motorcross Club focussed on ride park

Motocross is booming just about everywhere across the country at the moment, and in Bombala, riders and their families are working hard to resurrect a track that hasn’t seen action for years.
The Bombala Motocross Club has become a sub-branch of the Australian Motorcyclist Association (AMA) to ensure the future of the project, with the AMA excited to be a part of reviving motocross in the district.
The track itself was built just 15km out of Bombala by a keen group of riders in 2009, with the sub-branch’s president, John Paynter being a part of that original group.

Work begins to restore Bombala park

Work has begun on restoring the Bombala Bicentennial Park site where initial earthworks took place for the construction of a new sewage pump station.
The community was outraged when eight established trees were removed from the park in October without consultation, making way for the new sewage pump station.
Following heavy input from the public and local meetings at the site, the Snowy Monaro Regional Council...

Car and van fire closes road

At around 1pm on Monday January 11, a vehicle towing a caravan up the Brown Mountain along the Snowy Mountains Highway spontaneously caught fire, forcing the vehicle to a stop right on the elbow of the road near the Fred Piper Memorial lookout.
Rural Fire Service (RFS) Crews from Bemboka, Numbugga and Nimmitabel responded to the incident and arrived to find the vehicle fully alight. The caravan was separated from the vehicle and the blaze extinguished. Fire had also burnt into the adjacent bush but thanks to favourable conditions and quick responsiveness from the RFS personnel, the fire was contained...

Victorian border travel

The Victorian Government has updated its border travel permit system to mandate permits for anyone and everyone travelling into Victoria. However, those in the NSW/VIC border community - of which the Snowy Monaro and Snowy Valleys LGAs are included - can travel within the border community without a permit, so long as you have not been outside the border community in the past 14 days.

From 5:59pm on 11 January, you will need to apply for a permit to enter Victoria from anywhere in Australia. The permit system is based on a traffic light system which allows for areas across Australia to be designated as green, orange or red according to their coronavirus (COVID-19) risk.

Those in both green and orange zones will need to apply for a permit, while those in red zones will not be allowed into Victoria without an exemption. Current ‘red-zones’ include the greater Sydney and Greater Brisbane areas, while the entirety of NSW has been listed as an orange zone.

NSW/VIC border communities will continue to have exceptions and will be able to use local residence identification to cross the border, so long as they have not left the border community within the last 14 days.

During the permit application, along with where you have been, you will also be asked about whether you have symptoms, whether you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are a close contact of someone who has or whether you have visited particular high-risk locations.

To apply for a Victorian border permit, visit www.service.vic.gov.au/services/border-permit/home. To stay updated on the evolving Victorian border permit situation, visit www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/victorian-travel-permit-system

Do you have to get a negative test hopefully within 72 hours? And isolate? As in arrive to an address and literally don’t leave that address until you get your negative results back?🤔👍

Looks like a take over of NSW territory.

Snowy 2 development rolling on

Snowy 2.0 works are progressing very well, with 850 people now working on the project, including about 150 from the Snowy Monaro region.
“We have safely and successfully delivered all 125 cargo loads of our first tunnel boring machine (TBM) to the Lobs Hole construction site. We are making great progress on the assembly of the TBM and are due to start tunnelling the main access tunnel portal at Lobs Hole shortly,” a Snowy Hydro spokesperson said.
The spokesperson also said they have delivered key parts of the second TBM to fast-track construction of it. Deliveries of oversized TBM cargo...

I know a few local young men, fit & healthy and hard workers who applied and didn’t get a look in. Just saying

Its takes a special skill set to work on these projects, most have years of experience, skills, knowledge and training doing this type of work and need to be sourced from around the world...sure the company employed everyone who fitted into there respective job roles from locals...and 150 plus all the outsourced employed like fuel trucks, woolworths, banks even place you dont think of like the chemist or shoe shop etc all play there part in this project for the entire time its being built...thats millions back into small towns like Cooma

Camp looks a lot flasher than the old days..

All the locals are angry because only 150 got a job out of 6742 people and maybe if they wanted to work and put the bong down they would of got a job but the dole sound easier 😉

What a mess why employ only 150 locals where do the rest come from?

Any pics of what's happening at the Tantangara end?

Aus Day in Bombala

Australia Day is an important occasion in Bombala, and this year the Australia Day Celebration Committee is very pleased to welcome 2021 Australia Day Ambassador, HY William Chan.
A highly acclaimed architect and social innovator, William will be giving a fascinating Australia Day address on January 23 at the Bombala event.
Born in Hong Kong in the same year as the Tiananmen Square massacre, HY William Chan was just an infant when his Chinese family fled to Australia as political migrants. Today, the young Australian architect is not only building inclusive cities, but also building the capacity of marginalised communities...

Bombala fishing competition

You don’t get much more unique than this for Australia Day! Bombala has embraced eel fishing as part of the its Australia Day Celebrations for the past couple of years, and the popularity of the competition has only grown.
And it’s not just about eels. The Local Freshwater Fish and Eel Fishing Competition kicks off on January 4, running right through the lead up to January 23, when Bombala celebrates Australia Day for 2021.
There are four classes to enter, with the Longest Eel, the Heaviest Eel, the Heaviest Redfin/Perch and Heaviest Trout all being contested.
From January 4, anglers of all ages are encouraged to bring in their biggest catches to be weighed and measured by Dave at the Bombala Newsagency from 12noon each day.
That gives you three weeks to catch the big one! And it’s only $2 per person per weigh in..
