9 I pay tribute to the continued support of all our valued sponsors; without these sponsors it would not be possible to host one of Australias largest Masters events. The Northern Territory Department of Sport and Recreation remains the coordinating brains trust behind the Masters Games. This years success can be directly attributed to the enthusiastic and professional team responsible for bringing together so many diverse and complex elements of the events operations and administration. I would like to place on record sincere thanks to the many Government departments in Alice Springs which assisted in numerous ways providing helpful items and expertise to the Honda Masters Games office and staff. Everything from faxes, photocopiers, printers and cars were contributed to help make the success. In some cases, staff were seconded to perform vital short term roles. My congratulations also to the 2000 Honda Masters Games Advisory Panel, led by chairman Peter Hoey. It is essential that a respected group of local business and public figures play such an important part in shaping the style and culture of the Alice Springs event.
