Simply Fit Gym at Peregian Beach is throwing out the challenge to other gyms, clubs and groups to lift as many kilograms as they can in support of headspace. With world champion powerlifter, psychologist and business woman Katrina Robertson at the helm that is a mighty challenge!

Teams of four can nominate themselves to lift as many kilograms as they can in whatever way they can for one week. Teams can track their progress, publish their photos and celebrate their efforts. Great prizes are on offer to the most lifted in various categories along with the best team photo and most money raised.

Review by Lawrance Chadwick
Three plays: “The Way Out ” by Sue Sewell. “Moving Out ” by Judy Fredriksen and “Call Centre Call ” by Bruce Olive. The Theatre was set up in cabaret style tables which was a pleasant surprise. Live theatre can be almost like a happy family get together.
“The Way Out” involved a rather intense chat between sisters where a murder was slowly revealed. A grandson was being left to carry the guilt. The sisters were both guilty of different deeds creating mutual silence.
The second play was a very lively affair. “Moving Out ” bounced along being sexually provocative all the way but it turned from the exciting and frivolous to the serious stuff at an in-laws get together. Who was Cassie’s father? She had thought he had been killed in a mining accident. The truth was a bombshell.
The third play was a gem. “Call Centre Call ” – A very active computer nerd is struggling with his wiring and needs some customer support. He rings up customer service and the voice, Gabriella Salmon did a brilliant job of making all the telephonic noises and instructing Henry to push the telephone numbers to get directed to his potential help. The voice even enters the real world of chat with Henry but still answers with numbers and the usual telephone noises. It was hilarious especially if you can relate to such answering services. Bruce Olive wrote the play and Alison Lambole directed.
A great night out at Bats. Thank you to all the staff who made it work so well.
Lawrance Chadwick.

Their global quest for adventure takes us on the road less travelled during the  60s and 70s to witness first-hand the discovery of amazing paradises that few ever knew of – before they tragically disappeared.
