TENNANT Creek Speedway
and Desert Harmony were
proud to present the Josh
Reid Memorial night on Satur-
This night was held in memory of a
young lad that use to love his speed-
way and lived life to the fullest.
Josh used to race around Tennant
Creek Speedway on his little 50cc
Yamaha proudly cheered on by his
family and friends.
The night was supported by local
and visiting racers.
It was great to see the motorbikes
out there having a practise run.
Juniors from seven years of age
to adults gave it their all and put on
some good demonstrations. Josh
was remembered by his brother
Brodie Reid who rode in his honour.
General comments from the crowd
were that it was really exciting to see
them all out there.
Street Stocks and Junior Sedans
again put on another good show.
The Carew family came and sup-
ported the night in both sections
and put on some good racing for
Corey Greening and Nick Tregea
from Alice Springs returned once
again to Tennant Creek Speedway
to race against the locals.
In the Junior Sedans, special men-
tion goes to Kayla Hooker for her
improvement in racing.
This young girl has improved a lot
and had the crowd cheering her on.
With Lance Carew and Jack Yates
leading the race, the other drivers
found it very hard to get around
Kayla as she held her line and didn’t
budge an inch.
Corey ended up getting through but
ended up spinning out, taking Kayla
with him. This allowed Jayden to
Final results were: Lance Carew
came first followed by Jack Yates,
Jayden Geizendanner, Corey Green-
ing, Nick Tregea and Kayla Hooker
Street Stocks started out with five
drivers but a couple suffered engine
issues and never made the final.
Some great shots were taken of
Jamie Fry’s car smoking around
the track, thanks to Desert Harmony
team for capturing this.
The final three cars were Allan
Spence in the Black Shadow, Col
Fry in his Bumble Bee and Terry
Carew in the blue beast.
After a slip up in one of the heats,
Allan Spence forgot to tighten some-
thing once again, the black shadow
powered through the final to take the
The night was not only about going
to watch some great racing but also
to remember Josh Reid.
At interval a balloon release by
candle light was done in memory
As the balloons floated off in the
sky the crowd was treated to a mag-
nificent firework show done by KC
It was a really heartfelt warming
moment for all that were in atten-
Thank you to Fiona Reid for fund-
raising throughout the night.
Over $300 was raised and will be
donated to Ronald McDonald House
by the Reid Family.
A huge shout out has to go to our
major sponsors and partners for this
event: KC Fireworks Displays who
gave us a first class show, Desert
Harmony and Barkly Regional
Arts who took so many photos of
Smokin’ action for Josh Reid Memorial speedway event
Mulga Dodgers nail a narrow
win against the Mulga Braves
ANOTHER great Sunday afternoon of base-
ball/softball/t-ball was had by all who attend-
ed as the Mulga Braves and the Mulga Dodg-
ers battled it out in a very close game.
The children are really starting to pick up the game’s
fundamentals of keeping the ball in front of them and
backing up each other.
There were some old and some new players but all up
we had around 20 players.
It is good to see more community volunteers taking
an interest (Hal Ruger, Annmarie Waistcoat, Jolene
Wright, Justin Fitz, and Digby Horwood) who sup-
ported John Fitz and the players and encouraged the
kids to join in, showing them how to play the game.
Micky Burton and Hal Ruger also donated gloves
It was good to see more families and the local Mulga
community watching the kids play, from the comfort
of their own yards.
This is good for our community, getting our kids ac-
tive and fostering a healthy lifestyle for both the kids
and their families.
The final score was Mulga Dodgers 19, Mulga Braves
If anyone has any old baseball or softball gear lying
around that they don’t want please donate to this good
cause. Please call Papulu Apparr-Kari (Language
Centre) on 8962 3270 to arrange someone to pick it up.
