those who were NOT able to attend the Wine Syndicate tasting and who
don't want to miss out on some very good Pre-Christmas deals !!
Wine Syndicate tasting, held at Greg and Louise’s Pitt Point boatshed
in perfect weather, was a very interesting and enjoyable occasion.
those who couldn’t make the tasting, and as this is the last
opportunity to buy good quality, and very good value, wines through the
WS before Christmas, we have attached the Order with the Tasting Notes.
is welcome to purchase any of these wines by filling in the form and
posting/emailing, as indicated in the top right hand corner, to Jim
Sutton by 21st October (that’s pretty soon).

For people who like the Whites, the time proven Wongaburra Verdelho is
good tasting and terrific value.
The Watervale Riesling is true to the notes – good fruit and a sharp
lemony dry finish.
Pepperton ‘bubbly’ also impressed the tasters, especially with the
festive season fast approaching. And at the price you won’t
hesitate to pop the top off one (it’s equipped with the very clever
resealable cap too!)
The stand out Reds, generally acknowledged
by the tasters are the Lake Breeze ‘Bullant’ 2009 Shiraz, the Laterite
2009 Margaret River Shiraz, and the 2008 ‘Bernoota’ shiraz Cabernet
(which is outstanding!).
The tasting notes were considered to be
pretty accurate, except perhaps for the ‘bubbly’, which while certainly
very pleasant, is not quite as dry as indicated.
If you’d like
to discuss any of these wines, please ring any of the following
– Greg (9979 5228 – up until Wed evening), Paul (0403 442
Julian (9999 4449).
that the Order has to be sent & paid to Jim by Friday 21st Oct.

SI Family Day Care
I, Rebecca Tringham, resident of Scotland Island for 26 years,
would like to set up my own licensed (CCB approved) Family Day Care
Centre here on the Island.
I live between Bells and Carols
wharves, and to make the care provided as user friendly as possible, I
need some information from families interested in, or in need of child
care on Scotland Island.
I plan to open the service in January
2012. I can care for another 4 children along with my own son
Mackenzie, for 3-4 days a week. The hours of operation are flexible,
but I suspect the demand for longer days, about ten hours, is going to
be high. I have no intention to take any business from our wonderful
Scotland Island Kindy, which I attended so many years ago. I also
understand that the hours of operation of Scotland Island Kindy can
make it hard for working parents to place their child in care there.
have been a professional Child Care teacher, caring for children of all
ages in a variety of settings. My roles have ranged from an assistant,
to my latest position, second in charge of a 90 place centre. I have
been planning, and looking forward to opening my own family day care
for a very long time.
With over ten years experience I have pulled
knowledge from many different places and personal experiences to
develop a passion for the highest quality of care, along with a
professional attitude, consistent communication, and last but certainly
not least to have fun with children in a small intimate environment
getting to know their personalities, their challenges and strengths.
