3 Great Giveaways
We currently have 3 great Giveaways onsite at the moment, 2 of them will be drawn next week so get in quick! Each one is very different and we are sure there will be one of the below which will appeal to you...

'National One-Act Playwriting Festival 30th Anniversary'
I look forward to this one every year! One lucky 'Coast News' member has the chance to go along and see the these wonderful plays on the 4th of July courtesy of the Noosa Arts Theatre.

'The Producers'
A very funny take on a Classic! Jally Productions has been nice enough to give us 2 seats to the matinee performance on Sunday 6th July at the Cavern Theatre, Sunshine Beach

MSC One Millionth Visitor Giveaway
Over 1 million visitors per year is pretty cool, and a benchmark that many regional sites (in much larger regions) never reach. So definitely a reason to celebrate with some free advertising!

Visit the 'Coast News' page to see how to get your name into the hat for one of the above great Giveaways. Best of Luck!!

The Sunshine Coast???

We recently had to go to Redcliffe for the Sunshine Coast Regional Final for Fanfare, which is a state school, statewide music competition held every 2 years. Yes, you did read correctly before, we had to travel to Redcliffe for the 'Sunshine Coast' regional final.

To our utter horror as proud Sunshine Coasters, Sunshine Beach State High School was the only actual 'Sunshine Coast' school there? The other schools came from Pine Rivers, Petrie, Bray Park etc... The ultimate winner was Pine Rivers who will now be 'proudly representing the Sunshine Coast' in the big gala Fanfare final? How nice is that, a Brisvegas School will be representing the Sunshine Coast???

What is sad is that this situation happens in other 'so called' regional representative arenas as well :( The 'State' Government forced amalgamation upon us all, and to a certain degree I can understand why. Though, if they had all these wonderful reasons for the 'Sunshine Coast' to be a 'region' in it's own right, shouldn't this then flow on to all other areas? Schooling, Sport, Health, Entertainment etc... From the football team we 'don't have' in the Queensland Cup (association itself is Sunshine Coast Wide Bay), to articles about Apprenticeships & Trainees the state government refers to 'Sunshine Coast Wide Bay', I could go on with examples where we are NOT a stand alone region...

Now we are an officially recognised region we deserve the same benefits other large regions have. I'm not suggesting we all neglect our own backyards, though in each sector from schooling & sport, to Health & Services, we should be rallying together to ensure that we are fully represented as a 'Region in our own Right'! With a state government land sell off here, we are only going to get bigger, let's all make sure when we are represented on any stage, business, cultural, tourism etc., we are truly the 'Sunshine Coast' and proud to be so!
