As I’m filling in for David Goodwin our usual ‘sport young writer’ for the 12 December 2018, I reflected on yesterday’s Tweed Heads Chamber of Commerce monthly breakfast meeting where thjey viewed a sports ministry video with much acclaim.
Chamber member Dr Mark Tronson sent a copy of the 4 min video to fellow Chamber member, local solicitor Jim Wilson who having viewed it, wrote that the Chamber of Commerce members would enjoy viewing it.
Introducing the short video at the breakfast meeting, Chamber secretary Peter Sibilant the proprietor of the IT web company ‘Big Rock’ explained it is good to see what our members are engaged in.
The ‘Timeout in Moruya” video shows the elite athlete respite facility “Basil Sellers House” in action with Australian Institute of Sport athletes visiting and illustrates Dr Mark Tronson’s athlete respite ministry, his Art, Cricket and Olympic ministry.
