Federal Member for Bonner, Ross Vasta today encouraged people to get in quick before the last set of tickets available for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games (GC2018) sold out, including for events being held in the Bonner electorate.
“There are a number of tickets still available, so get on the GC2018 website now to make sure you get yours,” Mr Vasta said.
“The Games is our biggest sporting event this decade. I’m thrilled that two of the biggest events—track cycling and shooting—will be held right here in Bonner.”
The GC2018 track cycling competition will take place at the Anna Meares Velodrome at the Sleeman Sports Complex in Chandler.
“The Australian Government contributed funding to deliver this state-of-the-art velodrome, and I’m proud of the jobs the project created, how it helped grow our local economy, and the long-lasting legacy it will leave for our community,” Mr Vasta said.
The GC2018 clay target, full bore, pistol and small bore shooting events will take place at the Belmont Shooting Complex in Belmont. Mr Vasta previously received a certificate of appreciation for assisting the Complex in getting state funding to upgrade their manual targets to electronic targets in time for the Games.
“I’m thrilled the new targets were installed in time for sufficient testing before the Games take place,” Mr Vasta said.
“There are going to be many great events on in Bonner next year so don’t miss out on your opportunity to grab some tickets to see the best of the best right here on our doorstep!”
