GOING FOR GOLD - TIM SLATER Congratulations Tim on being selected in the Australians With Disabilities Team (AWD) for the next Commonwealth Games in 2014 TIM: Thanks Groucho. I was rapt GROUCHO: I bet it was a thrill to practice  with one of your idols in Mark Casey who you are pictured with here and Mathew Flapper TIM: Yeah it was.  I still keep in touch with him which is really good. GROUCHO: What was the best tip he gave you while you were training over in Scotland TIM: Always be up to the head and just enjoy the game GROUCHO: When did you start playing bowls? TIM: I started playing at the age of 13 with my father out at Waubra then came to Victoria last year in the 2012 season GROUCHO: Gee, maybe I should have taken bowls up then rather than falling out of trees and  off motor bikes and feeling like I do now Being born with Cerebal Palsy hasn't really stopped you getting on with your life. TIM: No I can pretty much do most things which is great GROUCHO:  So you  go to Ballarat Uni TIM: Yeah, I am studying Counselling GROUCHO: Wow. That line of work is going to come in handy here at Victoria.  You could set up an office right here and get plenty of work as there are a few blokes here that need a bit of help. Have you got a girlfriend at the moment? TIM: No, I haven't. I am putting all my focus into studying and plenty of practice out on the green which is looking very good at the moment. GROUCHO: Well congratulations once again mate and best of luck in the coming season. TIM: Thanks Groucho.  I look forward to playing with you this season seeing you are a legend around here. GROUCHO:  I know mate , thanks So if there are any  sponsors out there willing to jump on board to give him a hand to get to the Commonwealth Games just give Victoria Bowling Club a call on 03 53326242
