Matt Mulga:
The “crazy figures” come from information supplied by grateful CoC at previous AGM events held around Australia.
The $2000 may not all be spent directly by individual members but also comes from the tens of thousands of dollars spent on items like the hiring of Blatherskite Park, the Convention Centre, the Saturday dinner, the food and drink purchased in town by members, the numerous tours taken by members while in town, local entertainers, hard accommodation in local hotels and motels, car hire etc etc etc.
All the money spent goes into the Alice Springs economy.
Just ask the teams at Standley Chasm and Ormiston Gorge, to name a couple, how much of an impact the event had on their businesses.
