MEET A GAMES ORGANISER
Games Transport Manager
Lyle Chasemore is no stranger to volunteering, joining the SONG2014 Games Organising Committee alongside his other volunteer positions with Cabrini Hospital and Rotary, which he has been involved with for the last two years.
'After retirement last year, my wife encouraged me to apply, mainly to get me from under her feet at home! I applied and after many phone calls and emails was asked to be the transport manager. It sounded like such a wonderful role in such a worthwhile event that could use my skills and add to my volunteer experience,' Lyle said.
Bringing over 35 years’ experience to his role as Games Transport Manager, Lyle is responsible for developing the transportation plan to provide a safe and efficient service for delegates, volunteers and the wider SONG2014 community on the ground in Melbourne during the Games.
'I look forward to the upcoming October Games, to see the athletes compete and the fruition of all the hard work by athletes and Games organisers come together in a celebration of the human spirit. Let the Games begin!' Lyle continued.
A huge thank you to Lyle for his generous and enthusiastic support, and to Lyle’s wife Judy for encouraging him to apply.
