Peter, let's talk about your golfing prowess for a moment. What's your handicap?
I'll put in on the record, I'm not much good as a golfer. I'm that bad that my kids put in some money to get me golf lessons for a Christmas present.
We usually go out to play nine holes.
I find it relaxing, but the best part about it is having some quality time with my kids sharing a laugh and a talk about various things that are happening.
And we have a wonderful back drop on the Port Fairy golf course.
There are stunning views from some of the holes at the course.
We've worked it out that you have limited ability on the golf course. What can you tell me about running in marathons?
Taking part in the marathons goes back to about 1983. I was living in Ballarat.
There were about four or five running clubs around the area and they all had people who loved to go out and have a run on weekends.
It was the time of Steve Moneghetti and Gerry Surridge - in my opinion they were excellent long-distance runners.
Moneghetti had a very high profile relating to long-distance running, so lots of people around the Ballarat area got involved in the sport.
But Surridge is sometimes forgotten for his achievements in long-distance races.
I was with a group of runners who would run 20 miles on a Sunday morning.
There were blokes that would run 180km in a week to prepare for marathons.
It took me a fair while to build up to those sort of kilometres in my training to compete in marathons.
I trained for months and months. I competed in six marathons, including the Melbourne Marathon, during my running career.
I knew I was not much good as a marathon runner, but I knew if I trained hard I could match it with lots of other runners.
I always had a goal of running two hours and 30 minutes in a marathon, but the best I could do was two hours and 36 minutes. It was a shame I could not get my time down, but I gave it my best shot.
Peter, wearing another hat you work up at South West Healthcare. What's your job at the hospital?
I was an ambulance officer in Ballarat, the Latrobe Valley and Melbourne for many years.
My working career had a few twists and turns before I joined the hospital 17 years ago. I'm the medical services co-ordinator at the hospital.
The job means, in a nutshell, that I look after the administration side of things for the junior medical workforce. It includes organising rosters, accommodation and recruiting junior medical staff.
The hospital has grown at a rapid rate over my 17 years working there.
When I started there were 12 in the junior medical workforce, and now there are 60.
The hospital has had massive growing pains over the last few years due to more patients.
The increase in patient numbers has put increased pressure on staff at all levels.
Did you play much footy when you were younger?
I played a bit of junior footy at Stawell, but I struggled.
I suppose my big break in senior footy came when I was working as an ambulance officer in Ballarat.
One of my mates was playing footy out at Skipton.
He encouraged a few of the ambulance officers to go out and have a kick because they were short of numbers.
My claim to fame is kicking the dew off the ground in the reserves for Skipton.
I must admit I struggled to get a kick. I soon found out I was in one spot and the ball was always in another.
Over the years you've been heavily involved with the Port Fairy Football Netball Club. What's your role at the club now?
I'm the senior team manager and help out with rotations.
I've held that job for the last seven seasons.
I first got involved with the footy club more than 20 years ago in the juniors because my boys were playing there, and then it was with the seniors.
I was the senior runner sharing duties with Dean Dwyer for a while. But when Sam Rudolph was the senior coach, he said to me one day he gave me a message at the start of the quarter and the player never got the message until time-on.
I knew my time as the senior runner was coming to an end when the coach tells you that.
How has the senior side gone this season?
We have gone along all right.
I suppose we're like all clubs - we've been hit hard by injuries at various parts of the season.
I think the senior side showed when they defeated North Warrnambool on Saturday we can match it with the top sides.
We've just got our fingers crossed that we'll have a full side on the park come finals time.
Let's talk about your role relating to the rotations. Are there too many rotations in footy?
On a lot of occasions, the rotations relate to structures which have been already organised. The structures are in place to give the side more flexibility.
But in answering your original question, I would say that in all forms of footy - whether it's in the AFL or minor leagues - there are sometimes too many rotations.
What sort of role does the Port Fairy Football Netball Club play in the local community?
It plays a massive role in the community. I'll talk about sporting clubs as a whole.
People don't understand how complex it is to run sporting clubs.
There are so many different personalities that have to be consider to start with.
Sporting clubs are a great outlet for people from work and home pressures.
They teach you discipline and respect and are there when you need support.
