generous prizes that went during the night. There was a huge range of sponsors: Brumbies Rugby, of course, for whom OzHarvest is their number one ticket holder this year; Ocean Fresh Seafoods; Mastercut Meats; Canberra Milk, who gave us all stress cows to take home; Amazing Grapes; Eden Road Wines; Communities@Work, who of course sponsor OzHarvest; Frozpack; Bidvest; Casella Wines; Rydges; Sage Restaurant; the Mill; the Kennedy Room; Grazing; Coca-Cola; Sauvage Urbain; Hudsons Catering; Oyster Haven; National Convention Centre; Treasury Wines; the National Press Club, where of course this quiz night was held; Jazz Apple Cafe; Canberra Coffee Company; Questacon; Bunnings; Lambert Vineyards; the Home Loan Centre; and Bendigo Bank.

There are possibly some sponsors there that I have overlooked, but I pay tribute to all the people who gave so willingly on the night. It was a great night. I always like a good quiz night. The organisers said they want to make this a regular part of the Canberra calendar, and I look forward to that and encourage people to get behind this worthy cause through this really enjoyable evening. I congratulate the Chefs Network and their support of OzHarvest.

MR DOSZPOT (Brindabella) (6.37): I would like to commend the Tuggeranong Valley Rugby Union and Amateur Sports Club for their contribution to the local community. I attended a presentation of the 2010 sports awards on the night of Friday, 18 February at the Vikings Erindale club on Ricardo Street.

On that evening, outstanding local sports people, coaches and volunteers from the valley’s amateur sports clubs were recognised for their performance for the previous 12 months. The Sportsmans Warehouse HR Heher shield for outstanding senior performance went to Caroline Buchanan from the Tuggeranong Vikings BMX Club. The ActewAGL shield for outstanding junior performance went to Bridget Reilly from the Calwell Little Athletics Club. The Coca-Cola shield for outstanding coaching or officiating went to Gillian Harris-Mayes from Tuggeranong Valley Women’s Bowling Club. The Chronicle shield for outstanding team performance went to Panthers Volleyball Club Men’s Premier League Team and the Vikings health and fitness award for outstanding volunteer contribution went to Maree Wilson, Canberra Physical Culture Club.

The winners were selected from members of the 53 affiliated sporting and social groups which, combined, have over 8,300 members and supply over 400 teams to the local sporting community. Since 1984 the number of clubs affiliated with Tuggeranong Valley Rugby Union and Amateur Sports Club has grown from 12 to 53 teams, and the number of categories recognised at the sports awards has increased from one to five. These sports awards are now highly regarded by the Tuggeranong community, as evidenced by the large numbers attending over the last few years. There were over 300 people on the night that I attended.

I would just like to thank, on behalf of the Tuggeranong sporting community, the Tuggeranong Valley Rugby Union and Amateur Sports Club for their generosity,
