Burracoppin and Merredin women played their derby on Saturday for Bowel Cancer Australia. The Burracoppin team had a raffle, with profits going to the charity in honour of one of the teammates who is battling bowel cancer. Local businesses donated a variety of items for the raffle hampers.
 
Both Merredin and Burracoppin are in finals, with the weekend's game the last of the home and away season before finals begin. The score was a nil-all draw.

David and Ela covered 750 km across a variety of landscapes and mountain ranges, carrying everything and staying in dormitories with the other pilgrims and travellers.

When Daniel lost his father, Garry, to bowel cancer he wanted to honour his memory with a special tribute. Daniel's father was a key member of the Virtual Airline Community, known as the RallyeAir Asia Pacific, and loved flying on the Flight Simulator. He even kept up his hobby during his treatment as it offered a distraction to the reality of the tough battle at hand.

"We are essentially a community that operates and flies online the International Virtual Aviation Organization using Microsoft Flight Simulator," said Daniel.
