Vale – Arthur Tunstall OBE

The Australian Commonwealth Games Association (ACGA) is saddened by the news of the passing of former Honorary Secretary/Treasurer and Life Member, Arthur Tunstall OBE.

A fighter all his life, Arthur finally succumbed to a long term illness last night. He is survived by his son Robert.

Arthur served as Honorary Secretary/Treasurer of the ACGA for an astonishing 29 years. He was made a Life Member in 1979.

Our thoughts are with Rob and the Tunstall family.

Craig Phillips, Chief Executive Officer, ACGA: “Arthur was a giant in sports administration in Australia. He was a pioneer during the formative years of his sport of Boxing and the (British Empire &) Commonwealth Games Movement in this country.

For much of his time as an administrator, he had his beloved Peggy by his side. Together they were a formidable duo. The organisation we are today is greatly indebted to the service Arthur provided and the solid financial foundation he created.

He will be deeply missed.”

    Matthew Mitcham Calls It A Day

    Arguably Australia’s greatest ever diver, Olympic Gold Medalist Matthew Mitcham, has today announced he is retiring from the sport.

    27-year-old Matthew said the time is right to hang up the togs. “I’ve had a really good run, and I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to do what I love for as long as I have,” he said.

    “I have achieved everything I hoped for, including the big three – Olympic Gold in 2008, World Number One in 2010, and Commonwealth Gold in 2014 – which could never have happened without all the help I’ve had along the way.

    “Above all, nothing has made me prouder than being able to represent my Country and my Community at the highest level of sport. The support from the public has been overwhelming, and I’m extremely grateful for that, too.” Read More

    Queensland Government: Statement on the independent advice into the tender process to appoint a company to produce the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games

    I was proud to be part of a Government that won the Commonwealth Games for the Gold Coast.

    And I am determined – as the new Minister for the Games – to ensure it delivers for the Gold Coast and Queensland.

    As reported, unsuccessful tenderers for the Commonwealth Games opening and closing ceremonies raised concerns about the procurement process.

    In a letter they sent to the Auditor-General they said they wanted to “place on the record” that their objection is only based on concerns with the process, not that the contract was awarded to a firm with global links.

    They said in this letter that the “industry is specialised and by nature global [and] as such firms compete for work around the world.”

    These concerns were forwarded to an independent probity auditor and they have reported back to the Department.

    This morning – in a transparent manner – I have tabled the auditor’s advice in Parliament and it is being provided to the Auditor-General.

    The independent probity auditor has advised the tender was fair and in accordance with the Queensland Government procurement policy principles.

    The tender was consistent with the State Procurement Plan 2014-2018. Read More
