1 Gold Coast Gift cancelled on Fri Jan 27, 2012 11:15 pm


From the QAL

Evandale Australia Day event cancelled (Gold Coast Gift)

Updated 2:51pm, Tuesday 24 January 2012

The annual Australia Day event at Evandale Parklands has been cancelled due to continuing heavy rain across the Gold Coast.

Community and Cultural Development Committee Chair, Councillor Bob La Castra, said while the cancellation was extremely disappointing, community safety had to come first.

“The decision to cancel this fantastic event hasn’t been taken lightly but the parklands site is totally water-logged and with the Bureau forecasting more heavy rain for the rest of the week, we have no choice but to cancel,” said Cr La Castra.

“The event takes two days to set up, and while the contractors have been at Evandale ready for a break in the weather – we just haven’t caught a break.

“The reality is even if we could set up and the event were to proceed, with conditions like this, it would be pretty uncomfortable and I reckon families would rather be celebrating indoors.

“We have only had to cancel the event once before in its history but in this case, the Bureau is telling us we are in for more of the same for the rest of the week.

More info will be posted regarding refunds of entry fees in the near future.
And the AQ meet on the Gold Coast has also been cancelled....
