"Robert Neal "Bob" Dies" Officer of the Order of the British Empire/OBE, who took the stage name of "Bob Dyer", was a Gold Logie-award winning American-born vaudeville entertainer and singer, radio personality, and radio and television quiz show host who made his name in Australia. Dyer is best known for the long-running radio and then television quiz show, Pick a Box. At the height of his radio career, Dyer and his friend and rival, Jack Davey, were regarded as Australia's top quiz comperes.
Bob and his wife, Dolly Dyer/Dolly, were probably, after Robert Menzies/Sir Robert and Dame Pattie Menzies, the most recognised double act in Australia in the 1960s. Bob and Dolly's main interest besides performing was big-game fishing and, between them, they broke some 200 world and Australian fishing records.More Bob Dyer on Wikipedia.
That's what we wanted to do. We told them we wanted to see intensity and focus and we saw that. It was a plus to get the bonus points. Now we go match-by-match.
We need to come ready to wrestle. You never know what might happen. Each match is critical.
That's the way the state tourney works. Drew had a tough bracket at 119.
It's too bad Creston and L.C. weren't at full strength. Someone had to win and this was our night.
This senior class has been the core of our team for three years. They have always gotten the job done.
We talked about how important this last conference meet is to our seniors. We motivated the kids by emphasizing the importance of our seniors wrestling well in their last conference tournament.
They had terrific matches. There's nothing to be ashamed of. Our kids worked hard and I proud of the effort.
They're the core of our team.
