The casino, which cost around $15 million to build, was opened by Rolf Harris on a cold July night. Rosemary Nin, an Englishwomen who had been assistant manager of Wrest Point Hotel Casino, was the first general manager Australias first female hotel casino manager. Carmel Ryan, mother of Mayor Damien Ryan, was at the official opening with her husband. She said the weather was exactly as it is now. The ladies wore long dresses and the men wore woollen suits. The opening event was in the main dining room, which was decorated with cane furniture, floral cushion covers, beautifully set tables with silver service and bright lighting. There was an auction of a Rolf Harris picture that was bought by Mr and Mrs Ted Hayes from Undoolya. The evening began with cocktails, then guests were seated for the first two courses. They were then escorted outside to watch a fireworks display. After the fireworks they returned inside for the main course, more entertainment and dessert. The average age of the attendees was between 50 and 60, which means not many are still surviv ing in Al ice Springs. Real estate agent Gail Tuxworth celebrated her birthday at the opening of the casino and Alderman Brendan Heenan also joined in the festivities. n Alice Live: Page 37 Rubbish bin service delay RESIDENTS may have noticed a delay in their rubbish collection this week. Alice Springs Town Council CEO Rex Mooney said there was new staff training along some routes, which resulted in a slower service. He said the contractor doubled the number of garbage trucks on the roads to rectify the situation by Wednesday. Tennant fire suspicious POLICE, fire and emergency crews suspect a fire at the old Rockits Nightclub in Tennant Creek was deliberately lit early yesterday. Crews were called at 3am yesterday. Auxiliary and volunteer fire crews prevented the flames from spreading while other firemen wearing breathing apparatus entered the building and put out three separate fires inside the building. Fire officers said the fire was suspicious because of the different locations of the three fires. Police have declared the area a crime scene. Fire investigators from Alice Springs went to Tennant Creek yesterday.
