The lawn bowls community is set to remember a stalwart on the weekend. The Southern Highlands Cup and Eric Plain Trophy tournament will be held at Bowral Bowling Club from 10am to 1.30pm on Saturday. The tournament will be held in memory of late Robertson Bowling Club lawn bowler and Southern Tablelands District president Eric Plain. Players from Robertson, Bundanoon and Bowral will take part in the competition, which will feature two rounds of pairs and two rounds of triples.
The Mittagong first grade cricket team did a late player and friend proud on the weekend. Mittagong had a win over Robertson Burrawang at Bradman Oval on Saturday. Meanwhile Mittagong’s third grade side also had a win against Bowral at Welby Oval. First grade captain Joel Gorring said the club’s hard work on the day was a tribute to the memory of their friend Paul Jones. Jones died of a heart attack while playing for Mittagong last week, which left the club in shock.
Scrabble enthusiasts were in their element on the weekend. The Bundanoon Open Scrabble Tournament was held at Bundanoon Public School on Saturday. There were 58 Scrabble players from across the Highlands, Canberra, Wollongong and the South Coast on the day. Ages ranged from eight to 80, across a range of different skill levels. Robertson couple Nigel and Catriona Walker played their first game at the tournament on Saturday. “We’ve been playing for years at home,” Mr Walker said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
