'Change is inevitable' for carnival series calendar
The Advocate
04 Oct, 2010

DATES for the 2010-2011 Basslink Christmas Carnivals Series have been finalised, but it could potentially be the last time the calendar runs in its current format.

The eight-event Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania-run series will start with the traditional Rosebery Carnival on December 18 and conclude with the St Helens Carnival on January 22.

A review of the series earlier this year and a strategic plan is in the hands of Sport and Recreation Tasmania with recommendations to follow.

However, SCAT president Susie Bower said yesterday major changes to how the series was administered could lead to changes down the track.

These would include the establishment of an independent board of directors, whose brief would include possible future changes to the calendar, as well as professional management of the series.

"There's too much passion and history involved with the clubs and we need to look at things objectively if the series is to survive and move forward," Bower said.

"Things aren't going to happen overnight, but change is inevitable and needed at some stage."

For the second year in a row, the Launceston Cycling Classic criterium will be included as part of the series, to be held on December 27 - in between the Latrobe and Launceston carnivals.

The Hobart Carnival, on January 8, will shift to a twilight format for the first time, starting at 2pm and running through until 8pm.

A number smaller lead-up carnivals will be held around the state prior to the Christmas series.

A street criterium will again be held in Burnie on New Year's Eve and, although not part of the series, is still an important lead-up for the following day's carnival at West Park Oval.
