Vol. 12 No. 7 MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CLMA December 2004 DEBE does ALICE!!! 3 (Drainage, Erosion, Baselines & Earthworks) Good news from the CLMA office! National Landcare Program funds have been announced, and the CLMAs application to get the Laser Truck running again was successful. The project will look at improving land condition on pastoral lands around the Alice by: identifying and fixing existing erosion problems reducing overland water flow in areas of high run-off helping to recognise and prevent future soil and water problems. Part of this project will include Grader training, getting the laser truck and ponding into action, and a pastoralist exchange and excursion to WA to look at problems and achievements in the Gasgoyne Murchison region (which is a lot like our own.) Keep your eyes on the next newsletter for more information. In the meantime, if you would like a copy of the latest Laser Truck information sheet outlining charges and terms of agreement, give us a call at the CLMA office. CLMA Xmas party last week Cold beer, yummy ham and good company all round at Simpsons Gap for the CLMA Xmas Party. Thanks to everyone who helped out, and especially to Rossi and Denise Bryan who carved the ham and cooked the Barbie. A few champagnes were also corked to celebrate Andrea and Kurts engagement. The CLMA family is growing!!! Farewells from the CLMA. Michael Wood has been working on the Sandover weeds project since May this year. Michaels 6 month contract is now finished and he will return to Adelaide. Michael was responsible with helping cover over 2,800 km of river and creek frontage of the upper Sandover and spraying over 6,500 Parkinsonia and Rubberbush plants. We wish him well for the future, and thank him for his hard work and perseverance on the project. Farewell also to our outgoing executive committee. Many thanks to Chris Nott, Tess Miller, Rex Fuller and Richie Hayes for their time and input into the CLMA for the past 3 years, its been greatly appreciated and we hope you remain involved with the operations of the CLMA.
