Families and friends relaxed enjoying the barbecue and sinking a few traditional tinnies. About the only exertion most people could summon up was to take part in the thong-throwing contest where Dennis Parker (adults) and Corey Neill (juniors) showed their skill by out-throwing the rest. The lamington-eating competition, where entrants had to eat five of the traditional Australian cakes as quickly as possible, and the face painting were also popular. Lingiari MHR Warren Snowdon was on hand to ensure fair play and no crumbs. Shantel and Leigh Klarenbeek at the RSLs Australia Day celebrations Amy Brown, Lucy Skutela and Rosalie Brown at the Alice Springs RSL for Australia Day Pictures: ANNE FUSSELL
