par­tic­i­pa­tion. To CAJ Van­der­Voort and the Alexan­dra and Cromwell Com­mu­ni­ties; the vans were in­valu­able – en­abling the Town Criers to visit all cor­ners of our beau­ti­ful re­gion so a spe­cial thank you for your gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tion.

Thank you to Mayor Tony Lep­per for his con­tri­bu­tion, en­thu­si­asm and in­volve­ment in the Tour­na­ment and to TV One and lo­cal ra­dio who did their very best to bring the Tour­na­ment into our liv­ing rooms -your pub­lic­ity was price­less.

Also, to Bill and Michelle Clark, Roxburgh for the hand­crafted, iconic tro­phies pre­sented to the com­pe­ti­tion win­ners – beau­ti­ful, ever­last­ing re­minders of suc­cess and a won­der­ful time in Cen­tral Otago.

Against the odds, to­gether we pulled this tour­na­ment off – in style. The Criers loved us – our peo­ple, our food, our scenery – ev­ery­thing about us and we loved them.

Their en­thu­si­asm, their colour and their will­ing­ness to be­come in­volved in the Blos­som Fes­ti­val, the Roxburgh Con­cert, visit the el­derly and the schools all the while com­pet­ing in the se­ri­ous busi­ness of the com­pe­ti­tion for top hon­ours.

All the Criers will con­tinue to talk about their stay in Cen­tral Otago for a very long time, pro­mot­ing our ‘World of Dif­fer­ence’.

Your gen­eros­ity means all Tour­na­ment costs have been cov­ered and the fi­nan­cial wrap-up will show ei­ther break even or a very small credit bal­ance.

Thank you, I am hum­bled from the bot­tom of my heart.

Paddy Ann Pem­ber­ton
