organisation skills, his commitment to the NTCA Branches and its members. Shaun Coutts has been a constant, a rock solid supporter and backer of people, industry, towns, events, sports and all manner of things across the Northern Territory. If Shaun says he will do something you know he will do it and most times go the extra mile to do more than was the original agreement. Shaun has for years commentated at the Brunette Races, The Kununurra Show, Tennant Creek, Borroloola, Broome and Katherine Shows, he has been involved in major fundraising functions and has been known to take to the stage at NTCA Gala Dinners when cast into one of Terry underwoods extravaganzas to do a spot of acting. Shaun has been an integral part of the northern cattle industry and it would be hard to imagine the northern cattle industry without the character of Shaun Coutts being an active part of it. During Shauns career with LNT and Coopers he would visit most stations across the NT and WA, seeing his vehicle pull up you knew Shaun would be up to date with the news in the industry and the current market status, the current situation of the season across his patch. During his career with LNT and Coopers Shaun travelled over a million kilometres across the NT and Kimberley, visiting some of the remotest cattle stations in Australia. Shauns confidentiality and professionalism stood him in the highest stead across the industry. To wrap it up, I am sure everyone present tonight will join me in saying Shaun is a bloody good bloke, and a sincere friend and supporter of the Northern Territory cattle industry. Congratulations Shaun on being awarded the Life Members Medal of the Northern Territory Cattlemens Association. Life Members Medal Shaun Coutts Presented by Henry Burke Shaun Coutts has been a staunch and loyal supporter of the NTCA for over 40 years. Shaun is someone whom many of us here tonight are proud to call a friend. At a recent celebration for Shauns 70th birthday and retirement in Katherine, there was a message sent through from Luke Bowen. It went like this: The phone would ring Its Shaun here Luke, Gday Shaun, how are you mate? Yeah not bad, I got a bit on but I am just ringing about the next round of branch meetings to be held in three months time. Bloody hell Shaun, thats three months away. Well someone has to be organised around here and I need to pin a whole lot of things down! This is only an introduction to a part of Shaun, his generosity, his It is my privilege tonight on behalf of the NTCA to recognize someone who has a long-standing relationship with the organization and its members. Someone, who has made a long and outstanding contribution to advancing and protecting the interests of NTCA members. 104 NTCA YEAR IN REVIEW 2016/17
