Journeys : Oct Nov 2010
8 October / November 2010 In our community RACT Insurance Youth Portraiture Prize goes Elsewhere Before an audience of 200 artists and art lovers, Launceston’s Ashley Bodell was recently named winner of the 2010 RACT Insurance Youth Portraiture Prize, for her painting Elsewhere. Ashley’s portrait depicts her younger sister. “I think ever yone has had this feeling at one stage or another and can identify with the sensation of being neither here nor there, but simply ... elsewhere,” said Ashley, in describing her painting. The runner up was Rachael Gates of Richmond for her portrait of Hobart musical identity Michael Fortescue. “The top five portraits were all ones where the artist really worked to capture the spirit as well as the likeness of the subject,” said Jane Haley, Chief Judge of the prize. “Portraiture is a challenging journey and many of this year’s entries have undertaken that jour ney with considerable skill and artistry.” For more information, including a schedule of exhibitions around Tasmania in coming weeks, go to www.typp.com.au No butts please The R ACT’s OH&S Committee has been working through how we can help reduce the health risk to our patrols from passive smoking while they’re working on a vehicle. As well as the health issues, there are obvious safety concerns when people smoke close to vehicles and their associated flammable liquids. You’ll see this sign on all RACT patrol vehicles – it means a safer, healthier approach to our Roadside service. RACT Driver Training can help! Susie Flanagan from RACT Driver Training, Hobart writes: L2 licence concerns Learning to drive in Tasmania now involves a practical test before the student can obtain the L2 licence and can then start logging the 50 hours of supervised driving required before sitting the P1 test. There is a misconception that it is just a formality, but unfortunately many parents and students are unaware of what it involves. We recommend that the student has at least one lesson with RACT Driver Training so the instructor can cover the components of the L2 test. We have fielded many enquiries from concerned parents after their son or daughter has failed the L2 test, which means a delay of four weeks and another $56.75 in fees before they can sit the test again. A professional lesson with RACT Driver Training as the first point of call may have helped overcome this situation. keys2drive We encourage all lear ner drivers to go to ww w.keys2dr ive.com.au for information and advice that will help lear ners and their supervisors. keys2drive takes a ‘train the trainer’ approach’ to help a super visor coach the lear ner driver. Christmas packages RACT members looking for a special Christmas gift will find great member savings on driving lesson package deals.
