Mark Webber to be honoured with civic reception

By Holden Caulfield - 19 March 2010 26

Queanbeyan City Council has managed to secure Mark Webber during his busy lead-in to the Australian Grand Prix for a civic reception this coming Monday (22 March).

A motorcade will travel down Crawford Street at 12:30pm before a reception is held at Council Chambers. Queanbeyan Mayor Cr Tim Overall has invited the public to come along to support Mark and says, “Queanbeyan is proud of all of its sporting stars and is honoured to have such high-quality sports people representing it on all levels.

“The people of Queanbeyan have followed Mark’s career closely and the town celebrated as one when he crossed the finish line in Germany to record his first Grand Prix victory.”

Webber. How often does he come home these days? [crickets]

If he does not call Queanbeyan home, then he does not deserve to be recognised.

Like every other F1 driver, Webber lives in Europe. He gets back to Queanbeyan at least twice a year, once in the F1 off-season and again during the fortnight leading up to the Australian GP – which is not bad given the demands on F1 drivers’ time from training, sponsors, and testing.

As for your second sentence, last time I checked there weren’t that many opportunities for Formula 1 drivers looking to make a living in Queanbeyan.

Oh wait, it is a photo OP for the Labourites. [smacks himself on the forehead] Well OK then lets do it.

Didn’t you know : they’re all “independents” on council?

The fact that Webber’s partner is an older woman does credit both to him and to her.

As a world – conquering sportsman who presumably is surrounded by available bimbos (Bingles?), the fact that he remains in a long term relationship with a ‘normal’ woman is a mark of his character and of her quality.

My earlier post got moderated also. I’ll leave it at saying the first response to this story is very poor form.

Certain I saw a less diplomatic post a bit earlier in the afternoon…

Indeed you did, I was a bit gobsmacked it got pulled tbh. It was very tame and attacked the content of the post, not the person making it. Anyway…

The joints goin’ to the dogs, I say, the bloody dogs.

I’d like to hear you explain why you think this idiotic comment was necessary.

OK, winning an F1 race is a reasonably big deal but to say that Qbn rose as one is total bollocks. Half the geniuses there wouldn’t know who Mark Webber is.

Oh Dear………………

I’ll be there. The guy deserves recognition because for an Aussie to get into F1 it is bloody difficult in the first place, but to win races is outstanding.

How can Queanbeyan host a civic reception? Civic is in Canberra, not over the border. Sheesh no wonder it’s called Struggletown if they can’t even read a map.
