Picture: JUSTIN BRIERTY l From previous page The focus for the next couple of months is Finke, which she has attended since its inception, only staying away in the past three years. Whether scrutineering, volunteering or camping with the kids, Heather was involved, often cheering on Neil who competed seven times. The two of them did race together, once in a ute and twice in Fugly, a buggy built by Neil and prisoners at Alice Springs Correctional Centre where he worked, but never made it to the finish line. In preparation for the arduous competition, Heather forgoes the gym for a slightly more unusual training regime. I get up in the morning, do the washing, go out and whipper snipper the paddock Ive got five acres here and Ive got to try and keep the grass down. I do caring for Jol Fleming, and hes quite a large bloke, so he keeps me in training too. This year Heathers aim is simply to finish the Finke in the allotted time. But her old motorbike teacher, Warren Hall, thinks she has a better chance than that. He said: I think shes quite capable of doing all right. She has no fear, and I reckon shell finish high in the quad class. Heather shrugs and laughs off the idea of landing a place. Just finishing it is a huge thing, let alone getting a place somewhere. Thats not even on the thought processes at the minute. Im a normal mum who just loves racing...and who is just trying to get there and back.

A panel including lawyers, police and service providers will run through two hypothetical case studies Val Dearman, coordinator of the Womens Information Centre, said: In discussions about mandatory reporting, the question was always raised after we do the report, what happens next? Ms Dearman welcomes all interested people to come along and network. The free session will be held in the Andy McNeil room at the Alice Springs Town Council from 10am to 2pm.
