David Peake trained with our Original Bootcamp program for many years, along with wife Cathy. David was a larger-than-life character, full of good humour and genuine care for everyone. A kind-hearted, community-minded man, David left an indelible mark and his legacy will be remembered. Our quarterly medal has been named the Peake medal in his memory.
Congratulations to the inaugral winners of the Peake medal:
CONGRATULATIONS to Sarge Nathan Martin on his recent graduation into the Victorian Police force… we could not be more proud of you!
Thank you to all recruits who attended our final Saturday farewell session for Thierry Morin before he headed off to Zurich. The love and support for Thierry and his family was obvious and we were pleased to award him an honorary promotion to ‘Sarge’.
Well done to those recruits who competed in the final Trail series event at Silvan and to Angela Johnson for completing the challenging 13km Wonderfalls coast run. Congratulations also to David Glascott for achieving a PB in the recent City to Surf 14km run in Sydney.
It was lovely to have past prime minister Tony Abbott join us recently for a training session at Fawkner park.
Rainy Day TV
Podcast Binge: Ted Lasso, heart warming and inspiring show with great quotes “be a goldfish”, “don’t you dare settle for fine”, “believe”
Best song to get you pumped?
“Brave” by Sara Bareilles never fails to get me motivated and ready to conquer anything!
Death Row last meal?
If it’s going to be my last, then fancy and slowest meal possible – 10 Course Degustation menu with fully paired wines.
Best piece of advice you ever received?
You don’t have to have the latest or best, but what you do have keep it clean and tidy.
This year 2nd half of 2023 I am most looking forward to
I’m really excited about my 8 micro holidays (Hobart, Launceston, Margaret River, Townsville, Canberra, Bryon Bay, Newcastle, Sunshine Coast), plus collecting my caravan from Adelaide so I can go on more adventures.
One thing people don’t know about you – what’s your hidden talent?
At Girl Guides, I learnt to cook sausages on a milo tin with a tea light candle. Random skill has stuck with me 30+years later.
First car: Mitsubishi Lancer GLXi coupe- great reliable car.
Current car: My faithful Subaru XV that has been on hundreds of amazing adventures.
Dream car: Mercedes Convertible SLC43 AMG or a Jaguar
Most inspirational living person
Not most, but someone who is currently on top of her game on the international scale. A dressage rider by the name of Simone Pearce, her mum taught me at pony club. So I had the right teacher, just not the brains or ability 🤦🏽♀️
Sharon is pictured to the right with Tucker the advetnture cat.
First music concert
Big Day Out Melbourne – highlight strapping a zip lock bag of Blue Curacao to our stomachs, great plan…. but rookie error having nothing to mix it with.
What advice would you give your 18 year old self?
Embrace failures and setbacks as stepping stones to success. Keep pursuing your passions relentlessly and never doubt your abilities.
Five people you’d invite to a dinner party?
My grandad(dec), Joanne Orchard (my riding instructor (dec), Jennifer Hawkins (I admire her brand), Gina Rinehart (maybe she will adopt me 🤞🏼if not I’m sure she’ll bring fancy wine), and a random for fun.
The picture to the left is taken in KFC Maryborough, where Sharon’s great grandad owned the land.
The book/movie everyone should read/see
Rich Dad Poor Dad, the message is simple and relevant
Movie – I watch for the moment then forget. Can not recommend.
If you could live anywhere besides here, where would it be?
Gosh I don’t know, the world is full of stunning places. Some days by the beach others in a mountain cabin. Anywhere I can do an DIY and add value.
If you had a superpower what would it be?
Super-speed – imagine how many more sports I could try and conquer!
