The Eureka Veterans Cycling Club have received the wonderful gift of a defibrillator from the St John AmbulanceHeart Start Community Project.

The Heart Start Community Project is aimed at getting defibrillators out into the community.
The project is part of the St John Ambulance Victoria Defibs Save Lives initiative and during September 2015, over $80,000 worth of defib bundles have been distributed to central Victorian not-for-profit organisations and sporting clubs.

30 defibrillator bundles have been gifted to clubs and organisations from towns such as Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Maryborough, Kyneton and many more.  Along with the defibrillator, each bundle includes online training available for up to 10 members of each club.

St John Ambulance Victoria – we are very pleased to be able to provide defibrillators to the Victorian community with the financial support of the Hilton White Bequest.  It is important to us that we can promote the benefits of defibrillators to the wider community, to encourage greater take-up of these life-saving devices and to further our goal of saving lives through First Aid.

The Eureka Veterans Cycling Club predominantly races on circuits near the township of Learmonth.  The ambulance response time to an incident in this area is in excess of ten minutes.
In conjunction with CPR, the ideal time frame to use a defibrillator on a sudden cardiac arrest patient is within the first three minutes.

Terry Collie (President – Eureka VCC) said, ‘Although our members would be considered relatively fit and healthy they do fit into the higher risk age groups and while exercising regularly is a positive step in maintaining good health there are no guarantees.  A defibrillator represents peace of mind knowing that if required there is a unit close by for use in an emergency response.  We hope we do not have to use it, but it is reassuring to know that there is a defibrillator on standby available should the need arise.  The club considers the defibrillator a wonderful asset that is the equivalent of extra insurance.’

The Eureka Veterans Cycling Club thanks the Hilton White Bequest and St John Ambulance Victoria for this great program.

We will strive to get the message out to the community that Defibs Save Lives.

Europa Cafe 2015 W.A.R.S. – race 5 – Sunday 23rd August

The battle for the 2015 Winter Aggregate Race Series goes down to the wire with six riders still in contention for overall honours.
For everyone else, there is still pride and a $50 Europa Cafe voucher to win on race 5.

John Creek leads the aggregate by a few points, however either Ray Hodgson or Peter Livitsanis can take the winter aggregate with a good result this Sunday.
Also in contention for overall honours are Bob Morley, Greg Curnow and Richard Adams (Warrnambool VCC).
These riders will need to win and hope the John, Ray and Peter have a poor day at the office.
Other riders with a chance to climb onto the final podium include Grant Dawson, Graeme Parker, Tony Herbert and Darren Terry.

The winner of the aggregate will receive a $50 Europa Cafe voucher.  All riders who finish on the podium will receive sparkling wine to celebrate their achievement.

W.A.R.S. 2015 race 5

Europa Cafe logo s

The Eureka Vets CC are excited to welcome Europa Café on as W.A.R.S. sponsor in 2015.

Located at 411 Sturt Street in the centre of Ballarat, we can think of no better place to relax,
either apres velo (after cycling) or just because it’s warm and friendly.

Kathryn and Jason wanted to be involved with the club and show their support for local sport.

Just a block and 1/2 “up” from the Town Hall, Europa Café is perfectly situated close to the Central Square shopping precinct.

Europa is a spacious, inexpensive family style café, where the coffee is great and the buzz is lively.
The lunch/dinner menu is seasonal and ranges from Italian to venturesome and imaginative Middle Eastern and Asian dishes.
The wine list is extensive and admirable with many by the glass.
All day breakfast at Europa has become something of an institution.
If you are visiting from out of town you should have at least one breakfast during your stay…
if you are a local Kathryn, Jason and the team look forward to seeing you again and again and again…

Open everyday from 7:00am for breakfast and lunch.
