On Sunday May 5th ASC Social club Golf Day was held at Mount Lofty, we had 13 groups of 4 & 4 groups of 3 for a total of 64 players. The day started with teams spread around the course for an 8:30 tee off, throughout the sunny morning around the picturesque Mount Lofty course golfers were seen hitting balls straight down the middle of the fairway, slicing balls into the trees and dropping balls short landing into the lake. Comments from players were quite colorful at times when that little white ball did not go in its intended direction or rolled around the hole to miss that vital par or birdie but overall everyone enjoyed the day. The morning finished with teams gathering in the clubhouse around the 19th hole for that quiet ale and schnitzel and to reminisce on that great shot, forgetful blunder or missed opportunity.
The day concluded with the announcement of the prizewinners

An event more commonly reserved for rev heads, the ASC Social Club Go Karting event brings together the young and the old, the fast and the slow and the males and the females.
Twice a year, participants meet up for an action packed Friday night starting with pizza, and closing with trophies, prizes and a fair share of track war stories.
The venue kindly cordons off a section with tables and chairs and welcomes the change in aroma when the pizza is delivered. Our members go through their team tactics while enjoying pizza, soft drinks and the odd jeer at a rival team.
At 7pm, the track boss beckons for all to join him for the safety induction. As you stand in the group listening, the pros are easily spotted with their personal helmets and gloves which add tenfold to the fight or flight feeling in the belly of our amateur drivers. But there really is no need to worry as it’s only a casual fun race.
The adrenaline begins to build with the last minute fuss of getting your best driver in the pit for the qualifying round, and then they’re off!
As the drivers of each team take turns revving around the track, the remainder of the group cheer from the grandstands. For the most serious of the group checking the screens for lap times and team positions is just as important.
After two hours of action packed track excitement, the weary eyed group congregate for the award ceremony where trophies and prizes are handed out before the winning team have photos on the podium. As the night draws to an end and we walk out of the venue, that question is always asked… ‘When is the next race meeting?’

A great time was had by all at this year’s Greenhills ASC Social Club day, February 2013. Not only was it a warm full day of fun and mischief, there was also plenty to eat at the ASC provided BBQ, that made sure no one went hungry. Thanks to all the members who made it along and for those have never tried; bring yourself/family along next year, as we always make it an annual event early in the year.

Paintball Sport at Kuitpo Forest
ASC Social club participants gather at Kuitpo forest ready for some paintball action in December 2012. Great credit goes to Paintball Sports staff members who are well organised and the equipment loan process went smoothly. Our Instructor Ben was very friendly and ran the event extremely well. ASC Social club members had a great day! Teams were organised well and many intense paintball rounds evolved. After everyone had finished we got together for a supplied BBQ Lunch and discussed or rather laughed about various events of the day. Thank you to everyone who came along, I look forward to organising another Paintball Event in the future!
