Phil and I have trained together over the past 6 years, at times intensely and others just the odd catch up to freshen up my skills. Either way, I always gain something from our sessions together.

You have conducted the auction at the Caulfield Cup Calcutta in an exemplary fashion for many years. You extract a pool of approx. $40,000 with very entertaining remarks and accurate auctioneering. In the opinion of most people at the Calcutta you are the finest auctioneer we have ever heard and there are many real estate and country people who attend the auction.

Mazda Foundation supports Rainforest Rescue at Mission Beach
Wednesday, 26 September 2012
Today we spent time with Rainforest Rescue CEO Kelvin Davies viewing the work done after Cyclone Yasi devastated the Mission Beach area some 18 months ago.Rainforest Rescue are replanting areas with rainforest species to provide much needed habitat for the dwindling population of Cassowarys in the Mission Beach area. The Mazda Foundation provided Rainforest Rescue a grant to fund the replanting of native rain forest. They estimate only 40 Cassowarys remain in the Mission Beach area. The main cause of death of these birds is when stray out of the rainforest onto the roads looking for food and are hit by speeding vehicles.
