Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2013 Week 11 Hansard (19 September) . . Page.. 3532..
thank the Australian Masters Squash Association executive for their ongoing commitment to squash in Australia, including Peter Wright, Gary Irwin and, again, Debbie Sims.
Finally, these people could not have done what they did without other members of the squash fraternity and past squash players who gave up their time to assist in running the control desk, preparing welcome packs, assisting with car parking, providing food, maintaining the website and undertaking so many other tasks that happen in the background. I pay tribute to these volunteers today.
I congratulate the ACT masters players who were awarded places in the various competitions. I will start with the individual men followed by the individual women and then the team placegetters. In the individual men's competition, the ACT winners were as follows: Trevor Smith, third place in the men's 80-84 and 85 plus division; John Forrest, runner up in the men's 65-69 division 3; Denis Mettam, winner of the men's 65-69 division 2; Richard Fry, third place in the men's 60-64 division 3; Gary Hampson, runner up and Alan Brownlee, third in the men's 55-59 division 2; Scott Andison, winner and Peter Jordan, runner up of the men's 50-54 division 2; Brian Cady, runner up in the men's 50-54 division 2; Stuart Green, winner of the men's 45-49 division 3; Graeme Seller, winner and John Smit, third place in the men's 45-49 division 2; Shane Gurney, third place in the men's 45-49 open division; and Bryson Hawkins, winner of the men's 40-44 division 2.

Holt community carers
MS BERRY (Ginninderra) (5.13): I want to quickly mention tonight Holt community carers, who have come together to take responsibility for the cleaning and maintenance of their community park. I want to mention them tonight because what of happened earlier with some people in this chamber talking our city down. I want to mention these people because they are a good example of where people are proud of their community and take ownership for its upkeep and maintenance. That, in turn, means that money and resources can be spent elsewhere where people perhaps do not have the time or the ability to take responsibility for their parks.
