This year four men and three women applied and were accepted to play in the ACA Presidents 8’s trophy held in Cairnlea this February.  It is a great competition to compete in and to test your skills against players from interstate.

This event was originally meant to be a 3 day event and have one day of qualifying. All was great, we had plenty of entries and needed to hold the qualifier. Then the weather, work commitments, injury and illness struck. We wound up having a 2 day event with 10 participants. Glenunga superbly managed it and it was supported by Bernie Pfitzner, Barry Haydon and Shirlene McBride as referees. The players thank all of these people and the spectators.

Greg Rowberry from Norwood won, with Ronald McBride from Victor Harbor runner-up and Karen Magee from Brighton in third place.

It was a sea view unlike any other. As I stood on a glass platform, through windows on all sides, like the facets of a giant diamond, I could see the waves 120ft below and seagulls swooping past. With one touch of the control panel, gallons of water would pour down on me.

This was the surreal scene on a sneak preview of Celebrity's newest ship, Celebrity Reflection. I was having my moment in the extraordinary shower hanging out over the side of Deck 14 in the Reflection suite.

More technology comes into play in the bedrooms. Take the suite's iPad to bed with you and use the 'Reverie' app to control the firmness of the mattress to suit both occupants, make it give your back a massage, raise it on one side and leave the other flat, and turn the lights and TV on and off, as your whim takes you.
