Flood: We’re Getting There

Vanuatu officials are working around the clock to ensure all works are completed before the Pacific Mini Games in December.

Games Committee chief executive Clint Flood confirmed to SUNsports yesterday, that works on the facilities and venues would be completed by November 1.

“Right now we are just doing the final touches,” he said.

“We’re still busy pouring concrete as we also got to lay the track, put sand at the beach volleyball courts and put concrete down on the tennis court.

“But the big work consists of putting the foundation down. Now the big building structures are up and we are doing the finishing works.”

However, Flood said the challenges they face are time and money.

“It’s the same with all organising committee, we really need to accelerate the planning so we have 246 days left. But we believe we have a good budget from the government and we still have to fundraise to collect a few more dollars.”

The Vanuatu Government provided 75 percent of the money for the Games.

“There is a lot of excitement in Vanuatu regarding the Games since we have a total of 420 primary schools and we will involve the school kids for the programme,” he added.

The Pacific Mini Games open on December 4.
