Tanti Wins Toyota Regional Volunteer Of The Year
1 April 2015  

Geraldton’s Victor Tanti has been recognised for his contribution to cricket by winning the Toyota Regional Volunteer of the Year.

Tanti is a well-known cricket identity in the Mid West and has been a stalwart of the Geraldton Regional Cricket Board (GRCB) for more than 20 years.

He was nominated by GRCB executive officer Rick Arthur who outlined Tanti’s passion for the game in the region.

Tanti has long provided media promotion for the game in the Mid West, while he has a wealth of relationships within the local cricket community, from players, coaches and umpires to wives and mothers.

He has long provided his annual booklet with statistics, milestones and historical anecdotes and been a key fundraising figurehead for the GRCB. He has also contributed greatly to the annual Country Week as a team manager.

Arthur said Tanti had embraced Cricket Australia’s vision to be the country’s favourite sport and a game for all Australians.

He also said his contribution had actively promoted and contributed to sustainable participation growth in the region, playing a vital role on the GRCB Committee, having a major role in umpire management and acting as an official and unofficial publicity offer for the game in the region.

Tanti has demonstrated leadership in the community and continued to foster and enhance the Spirit of the Game, no more evidenced than his work at last season’s GRCB 50-year anniversary dinner which he suggested and collated a team of the 50 years, plus a team of each decade. He was a key driver in the event’s success.
