A reply from the Sport , Media and Culture Minister the Rt Hon Richard Caborn MP , was received on the 21st of March 2005 .

It stated that : " Participation in the Commonwealth Games is not a matter for the Government but falls within the remit of the Commonwealth Games Committee ( CGF ) who are the supreme authority in all matters affecting the Commonwealth Games .

It is now the task of the Campaign to form a Cornwall Commonwealth Games Committee and prepare a formal application . This is now in hand and details will appear here when completed . If you are interested in being involved , please contact graham.hart@btconnect.com as soon as possible . :D

Due to Tumbled's positve persistance i have printed a copy of the online petition and will be gathering signatures, i urge all other people who are interested in Cornish sport and its implications on the Cornish identity to do the same.
Everything worthwhile starts with the first step, lets hope we have big feet.

I have just found the Cornwall Commonwealth Games Committee web pages- thanks Graham, Tumled and others for pointing it out. Quoting part of Graham Hart's intro to the web site, "......... because it's my game; the game I love - but was never over enthralled by any other English sporting success . I enjoyed them very much but something was missing . The passion and all that goes with it."
I know what you mean Graham, although from childhood in a west Cornwall town rugby was the only "football" I knew, I have never got that shiver, that elation, that surge of serotonins for Englands successes. Some Cornish people do and some don't - that's the way humans are. Thanks Graham to you and all your colleages for your efforts and Chris_I for this web site. It's great what your doing!!
