Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page - BY EMMA PRIOR

The new pel­i­can and fish sculp­ture in the All Abil­i­ties Play­ground is now com­plete and a com­pe­ti­tion has been launched to give the sculp­ture a name.

The Moira Shire Coun­cil are hold­ing the com­pe­ti­tion for school stu­dents who af­ter be­ing an­nounced win­ner can see the name they chose etched in a plaque to be dis­played next to the sculp­ture as well as scor­ing them­selves a gift pack.

Mark Rosen­brock a chain­saw artist and sculp­tor was con­tacted by Moira Shire Coun­cil Team Leader of Arts, Cul­ture and Events Mar­i­lyn Gourley two months ago to come to Yar­ra­wonga and sculpt an old tree stump in the play­ground.

What he cre­ated is fun and edgy and de­serves a name to go with its witty char­ac­ter­is­tics.

Mark him­self said his pel­i­can de­fied even his imag­i­na­tion.

“The pel­i­can has more char­ac­ter than I even planned be­cause of the re­stric­tions with the tree,” he said.

To en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion stu­dents must fill out an en­try form pro­vid­ing their name, age, con­tact details, the name they have cho­sen for the pel­i­can and their rea­son for choos­ing said name.

En­try forms can be col­lected from the Yar­ra­wonga Ser­vice Cen­tre, Yar­ra­wonga Chron­i­cle or Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.

Com­pe­ti­tion closes at 5pm, October 20 and en­trants can re­turn their com­pleted forms to any of the three busi­nesses where en­try forms were first col­lected.
