Masters Games


Recommended Posts

I was catching a bus into the city earlier today ... I was already annoyed that it was going so slow because it was school holidays ... when it pulled up to a stop and a nice orderly queue of about 20 people were there to get on. I was a more annoyed now, I was already late for my lunch date, the bus was already pretty full, and this group of, well, middle agers, all seemed to struggle to find change. I'd already noticed they all wore identical casual gear, parkers and slacks, but as they filled upo the bus, I noticed they all had lanyards on, with a Sydney logo (Opera House slashes, similar to the Sydney 2000 bid logo). One woman sat next to me so I started peering and saw they were lanyard accreditations for the Masters Games. It seemed I was seated midst a large contingent from the Canadian team!

I must admit, I hadn't realised the masters were on, or imminent, now in Sydney.

I only had two more stops to go after they got on, but I made a point of saying hello to the woman sitting next to me, and wishing her a good time in Sydney. My bit of local PR for the day!
