Carnival review first in century

BY MARTIN AGATYN
The Advocate
02 Dec, 2011


COASTAL carnivals will come under the spotlight this season in their first major independent review in more than 100 years.

The review will be conducted by respected mainland sports consultancy company Jump Media, which will look at the Latrobe, Devonport and Burnie carnivals, along with Launceston, with its findings and recommendations due to be handed down by the end of February.

Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania (SCAT) chairman Mike Gunson, of Devonport, said the report would differ from the internal review conducted two years ago by SCAT.

Gunson said the review would be able to provide an objective view of the carnivals, which SCAT was unable to attain with its internal review due to the vested interests of stakeholders.

"Apart from changes in our governance structure the internal review hasn't really achieved too much," Gunson said.

"It's hard for clubs to make changes and SCAT hasn't been proactive enough to force them," he said.

The Basslink Christmas Carnivals Series will this season receive $150,000 in assistance from the State Government for the second year in a row, but Gunson said continuation of the funding was contingent on the series achieving key performance indicators (KPIs) and other expectations.

"This independent review will include recommendations for SCAT and the State Government to help the carnivals move forward and prosper," Gunson said.

He said while the review would look at ways to sustain and increase spectator numbers and the quality of fields, there were no specific terms of reference and the review would be broad reaching.

"There's no set agendas from SCAT or the government and the consultants will talk to members of the public, competitors and officials," Gunson said.

Jump Media is a highly respected company which has a long history of working on major sporting and entertainment events in Australia and overseas.

The director of the company is David Culbert who was an outstanding long jumper, and won two Commonwealth Games silver medals in 1990 and 1994 and qualified for the long jump final at several Olympic Games.

Culbert has also commentated on athletics at three Olympics, three Commonwealth Games and seven world athletics championships.

"He has a very deep understanding of sporting events," Gunson said.

Any individual or any representatives of organisations involved with the carnivals are encouraged to make submission to Jump Media by contacting the SCAT executive officer by email at info@tascarnivals.com

It is the first major review of the Christmas Carnivals by independent consultants.

They are far from independent yet the only group for the job. Did you notice how they leave out their expertise with the Stawell Gift. It looks like the Bay Sheffield and Maryborough are going to have to compete for interstate competitors in the future. Overall this is a great initiative from Brian Roe. It gets the thing moving in the right direction for the Christmas Carnival series.

In the 1980's and early part of the 1990's there was a significant population of athletes whereby all three major Christmas/New Year interstate carnivals - Bay Sheffield, TAL & Maryborough were not significantly affected by one another and co-existed and indeed some fed off each other (Bay Sheffield - Maryborough).

The problem now is the dwindling athlete numbers nationally (probably not so much locally in SA) means that there is a bit of competition between say Bay Sheff & Tassie or Maryborough & Tassie.

Tassie has been hit the hardest, especially Latrobe, but more importantly the Burnie Gift (as one of the three grand slams) going from 100 plus regular entries in the 80's and 90's to the 40/50 it has had in recent years.

The review is welcome and much needed, but I must admit I do have some scepticism with it being conducted by Jump Media. They are not exactly independent with a potential vested interest in the outcome. Having said that, as another contributor has said, Jump Media is probably in the best position to conduct such an audit.

I am a little perplexed why the Stawell Gift connection has not been mentioned in dispatches, especially as it is its highest profile project and is the most relevent to the Tassie Christmas Carnivals.
