I agree to adhere to the 12th Lismore Workers Masters Games position on drugs in sport and understand that I may be required to undertake random drug testing.

I will not make any unauthorised reproductions or copies of the Corporation Logo or likeness without written permission from the Council. I allow the Games Committee to provide my contact details to Masters Games Officials and sponsors for direct mail purposes.

Team sports and team events – the team organiser must complete the team list form and batch all team members’ entries together.
