Moss­man Rocks and so do all the or­gan­is­ers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

I RE­FER to the let­ter pub­lished in last week’s FNQ In­de­pen­dent and partly pub­lished in the Gazette writ­ten by Chris­tine Price.

A num­ber of de­tails are flawed in this let­ter as is Chris­tine’s state­ment that I “named” my­self as “’the or­gan­iser” of Moss­man Rocks.

It seems that as a re­sult of at­tempt­ing to pass on the many thanks due to all and sundry for stag­ing this event, ( FNQ In­de­pen­dent Novem­ber 4) I have been com­pletely mis­con­strued.

If the es­teemed FNQ edi­tor ran with “or­gan­iser” in­stead of my ad­vised “co-or­gan­iser” as the ar­ti­cle sig­na­ture, I do not think any point of mis­un­der­stand­ing could be made in any case, as an “or­gan­iser” is merely some­one who is able to or­gan­ise.

I would like to make it ev­i­dently clear that I was thank­ing other peo­ple and not my­self.

Se­condly, Ms Price’s state­ment that “Moss­man Rocks was com­pletely or­gan­ised and es­tab­lished through the Moss­man Com­mu­nity Cen­tre”, is in­cor­rect.

There is one en­tity who has not been of­fi­cially ac­knowl­edged and is in­de­pen­dent of the Moss­man Com­mu­nity Cen­tre and with­out whom Moss­man Rocks most cer­tainly would not have taken place.

This or­gan­i­sa­tion ini­ti­ated and fa­cil­i­tated con­tact/li­ai­son lo­cally in or­der to pool a host of re­sources to in­clude per­form­ers and mu­si­cians, sound and light­ing pro­duc­tion and pub­lic­ity/pro­mo­tion.

I for one and many oth­ers, who know the or­gan­i­sa­tion I re­fer to, would like to say a big thank you to them.
