“We love to celebrate good times with great friends and that is central to the Australian Masters Games sport and social model.
“A refreshing beer will be welcomed by participants after a day of intense competition on the various sporting arenas, and the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip for them and their mates will make it even sweeter.”
