But the Barbadian budget can't exactly be a big one..The thread title cuts off at "Closing Ceremony cost.." on the front screen and so I thought Id guess what a high amount would be. I guessed $5 mill.
As you state it cost $750 000.
Life is too short to worry about such small figures. $750 000 is chump change in the grand scheme of a Government budget and there needs to be no dramas over such insignificant amounts.
Yes, but as was said before, $750,000 for Barbados is a hell of lot more than $750,000 for Australia.The opening and closing ceremonies for the Melbourne Commonwealth Games last year cost about 50 million (aud) combined, so the 750,000 here as Goughy said, really isn't all that much.
Indeed, but as has also been said before, 750,000 really isn't that much for a closing ceremony. If you asked me how much it would be before reading the article, I'd say 10 million at least, so they got off easy. It's probably the cheapest closing ceremony in recent times. Honestly the amount they spent on stadiums and the like, as Goughy said, this is small change and the most disappointing thing here is cricinfo and the tabloid-like style they seem to be heading in, at times.Yes, but as was said before, $750,000 for Barbados is a hell of lot more than $750,000 for Australia.
Yeah, it was pitch black and they showed about one minutes of it on TV here anyways, from memory.I can't even recall the closing cermony, so i didn't miss out on a lot.
Anyway closing cermony should be scrapped away as there would only be 2 teams there to witness the closing cermony, which is basically a waste.
