QUEEN’S BATON RELAY
The baton’s journey symbolizes the unity and shared ideals of the Commonwealth of Nations, and enables communities beyond the Host City to share the celebrations of the Games. It also serves a functional purpose in carrying Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s ‘message to the athletes’ from Buckingham Palace in London to the opening ceremony of the Games. The Queen’s Baton Relay 2010 Delhi commenced from Buckingham Palace, London, on the October 29, 2009. The baton travels through all other 70 Commonwealth nations – a historic journey covering a distance of more than 170,000 kms in 240 days. On its 100 day national tour, the baton will visit the capital of each of India’s 28 states and seven union territories, plus many other cities along the way, covering more than 20,000 kms. By the end of its journey, the baton will have traversed over 190,000 kms in 340 days, making the Queen’s Baton Relay 2010 Delhi one of the longest relays in the history of the Commonwealth Games. The baton will also have passed through thousands of hands, and travelled by different modes of transport across land, air and sea. The relay will conclude after the final baton bearer enters the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium during the Opening Ceremony of the XIX Commonwealth Games on October 3, 2010 where Her Majesty’s message will be removed from the baton and read aloud, officially opening the Games.

Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi
The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi was unveiled at a spectacular cultural show held at India Gate in New Delhi on March 8, 2009. The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi is a combination of handcrafted excellence and precision engineering; it’s a true symbol of India, a blend of its ancient roots and present vibrant, modern identity. It is also representative of India’s diversity – the baton’s colour scheme showcases ‘soils’ from every corner of the country, a rich palette ranging from white sands to yellow clay, deep reds to dark browns and an array of other hues. The shape and design of the baton has been created using a triangular section of aluminium which is twisted in the form of a helix and coated with soil in a graduating pattern. The interweaving of coloured soils, including white sands, deep reds, warm yellows, dark browns and an array of other hues creates a very distinctive design, form and texture never before seen in the styling of a Queen’s Baton. The very essence of India with its diversity and unrelenting endeavour towards a harmonious and progressive nation has shaped the inspiration of the baton.
31

The Queen’s message has been symbolically engraved onto a miniature 18 carat gold leaf, representative of the ancient Indian ‘pathras’. The gold leaf inscription reflects the essence and the richness of culture in ancient India. Modern laser technology known as micro calligraphy has been used for the first time to reproduce the Queen’s message in this style. The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi stands at 664 millimetres high and is 34 millimetres wide at the base, and 86 millimetres wide at the top and weighs a mere 1,900 grams. The baton’s ergonomic contours allow for convenient holding and good balance. The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi technology features include: The ability to capture images and sound as it travels throughout all nations of the Commonwealth; The latest global positioning system (GPS) technology through which the exact location of the baton can be tracked on the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi website; Embedded light emitting diodes (LEDs) which will change into the colours of a country’s flag whilst in that country Text messaging capability so that anyone anywhere can send their messages of congratulations and encouragement to the baton bearers throughout the Queen’s Baton Relay 2010 Delhi. The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi is created using processes and technologies existing in India by Foley Design in partnership with Titan Industries and a technology consortium led by Bharat Electronics Limited.

Tradition
The Queen’s Baton Relay is one of the great traditions of the Commonwealth Games, having been the curtain-raiser to every Games since Cardiff in 1958. The relay symbolises the gathering of people from across the Commonwealth at the four-yearly festival of sport and culture. The relay traditionally begins with a commencement ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London, which coincides with the city’s Commonwealth Day festivities. There Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II entrusts the baton containing Her ‘message to the athletes’ to the first honourary relay runner. The relay concludes at the Opening Ceremony as the final relay runner hands the baton back to Her Majesty, or Her representative, and the message is read aloud. At that moment the relay ends and the Games begin. Over the years the Queen’s Baton Relay has evolved into a powerful symbol of the unity and diversity of the Commonwealth of Nations. With each Games the tradition grows in scale and significance – including more nations, involving more participants and generating more excitement than ever before.

32

The Kuala Lumpur 1998 Queen’s Baton Relay was the first to deliver the relay to other nations of the Commonwealth, besides England and the host country. The Manchester 2002 Queen’s Jubilee Baton travelled more than 100,000 kms in 87 days, and visited 23 Commonwealth nations. The Melbourne 2006 Queen’s Baton travelled an epic journey of more than 180,000 kms in a year and a day, and visited all 71 nations of the Commonwealth. The Melbourne 2006 Queen’s Baton Relay was the world`s longest, most inclusive relay. No other Games relay has visited all member nations.

COMMONWEALTH BUSINESS CLUB INDIA
The Commonwealth Business Club India (CBCI) is a strategic partnership between the Organising Committee Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 and the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). CBCI is directed to establish and achieve the aims of the parent organizations, and to encourage and support the Indian Business Community’s involvement and the marketing and promotion of Indian sports. It is to raise sports’ sponsorships and market India as the preferred business partner and destination across the Commonwealth nations. The CBCI is chaired by Suresh Kalmadi – member of Parliament, India and Chairman of the Organising Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. The CBCI will act as a platform to bring together domestic and international apex business organizations and businesses during the run-up to the Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. The CBCI also aims to draw high power offshore business delegations to India during the Games and enable them to leverage the unfolding opportunity of transacting business and enjoy the Games. The launch of CBCI comes at an opportune time for the business communities within the Commonwealth countries due to the positive economic impact of the Games. To site some recent examples: The Commonwealth Games 2002 Manchester created an impact of nearly $ 3400 million on the country’s GDP while the Commonwealth Games 2006 Melbourne created an impact of $ 1600 million on the GDP of Australia. It is estimated that the Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi would result in an overall economic impact on India over a period of 2008-2012 of approximately $ 4940 million - nearly three times that of Australia. Furthermore, the Games are expected to create an enormous employment opportunity of close to 2.47 million jobs, which is much larger than Manchester and Melbourne. The social and environmental impact of the Games are highly laudable as they encourage improved standards of education to children, boost sports activities, create better quality of life and experience for citizens, increase international recognition and create environmental consciousness among the community. The CBCI was, for the first time, unveiled on October 29, 2009 at Royal Courts of Justice, London by Hon’ble Minister of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India, Dr. M.S. Gill. This was followed by its launch in Birmingham earlier this month during the reception of the Queen’s Baton Relay ( QBR ) Delhi 2010 in partnership with Birmingham City Council.

SHERA – THE MASCOT
Shera, mascot of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi, is the most visible face of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. His name comes from the Hindi word Sher – meaning tiger. Shera truly represents the modern Indian. He is an achiever with a positive attitude, a global citizen but justifiably proud of his nation’s ancient heritage, a fierce competitor but with integrity and honesty. Shera is also a ‘large-hearted gentleman’ who loves making friends and enthusing people to ‘come out and play’. In Indian mythology, the tiger is associated with Goddess Durga, the embodiment of Shakti (or female power) and vanquisher of evil. She rides her powerful vehicle – the tiger – into combat, especially in her epic and victorious battle against Mahishasur, a dreaded demon. Shera embodies values that the nation is proud of power, charisma, intelligence and grace. His athletic prowess, courage and speed on the field are legendary. He is also a reminder of the fragile environment he lives in and our responsibility towards the protection of his eco-system.

THE LOOK
The logo for the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi is inspired by the ‘Chakra’, the national symbol of freedom, unity and power. Spiraling upwards, it depicts the growth of India into a proud, vibrant nation. Her billion people coming together to fulfill their true destinies. Indias journey from tradition to modernity, her economic transformation into a super power reaching out to the world and leading the way, even as she enthusiastically embraces all the 71 CGA nations and territories of the Commonwealth to become one and host the best ever Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Colour Palette: The colour palette for Delhi 2010 look programme combines two of the distinctive colours of the Delhi 2010 emblem with the official colours of the Commonwealth Games. Green: The colour that signifies life, energy and high spirits also represents the fact that Delhi 2010 will be the first-ever Green Games. With a spring in your step, face every challenge and overcome hurdles with radiance and gusto.

41

Purple: Combining the stable and calming aspects of blue with the mystical qualities of pink, this colour satisfies the need for reassurance, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement. Red, Yellow and Blue: Commonwealth Games colours, representing the ‘Trinity of Values’ that symbolise the games; unifying humanity (red) giving all athletes a chance to realise their destiny (yellow) and promoting equality (blue). Pink: This colour has also been introduced to the palette adding an element of surprise and luxury to the Games look programme. It plays to the crowd and truly reflects India in all its resplendent glory. Come Out and Play: The logo tagline is in an invitation to every person across all divides – Indian and Commonwealth to let go of themselves and participate in the Games to the best of their abilities, in the true spirit of the Games. It is an exhortation to them to set new records, to outperform, and to raise the bar by scaling new peaks of achievement. It is also a call to the people of India, especially Delhi, to come out in support of the Games and play the perfect hosts at the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi.

PEL HIGH DEMAND TICKETS FOR THE MEDIA
While it is anticipated that Delhi 2010 will be able to meet media demand for access at most venues and at the MPC, some sessions will experience a high level of demand due to a combination of capacity and anticipated media interest. These sessions have been identified below. To control numbers at venues and to ensure equity of access for all media, a policy requiring members of the media to be ticketed at these sessions is necessary. Tickets will only be issued to the media for high demand sessions known as PEL (Prime Event Limitation) events which are: - Opening Ceremony - Closing Ceremony Additional sessions may also be added when the need occurs. These will be communicated to the media if required. Tickets will be issued to written press, photographers and ENR Tickets for high demand sessions need to be applied for in advance through the Delhi 2010 Press Operations Functional area. Tickets will then be allocated by the Delhi 2010 Press Operations FA in consultation with Delhi 2010 Communications FA, depending on a priority list that is generally based on the readership of the agencies/publications. After Press Operations FA receives the application form back from the media, Delhi 2010 Press Operations FA and Delhi 2010 Ticketing will review the demand for each session and where necessary, may decide to ticket additional sessions. The Delhi 2010 Ticketing FA will print the appropriate tickets and provide them to Delhi 2010 Press Operations at least two days prior to the session. All tickets will then be held by the Delhi 2010 Press Operations FA in a secure area and only made available to the media a day before the particular day of the tournament. Collection point will be located at the Main Press Centre. To combat the problem of empty seats due to no shows, Delhi 2010 Press Operations FA will stress in all correspondence that if the tickets are not collected before 4pm the day prior to the event at the MPC will be distributed by the Venue Media Manager at the particular Venue Media Centre on a first come first serve basis. During non PEL sessions (i.e. all sessions not listed above), the media will only need their accreditation to gain entry into the accredited media sections within the venue. Access into these areas will be managed by Press Operations staff together with Security (i.e. access control monitors).

Step 3: Issue and Distribution of NVP
After approval by Delhi 2010 the Press participants will be issued with an NVP via their country CGA. The Press participants are not part of the DRM process and can therefore enter India during the period 03 September 2010 – 13 November 2010 (i.e one month before and one month after the Games) upon presentation of the card and a valid passport and have their NVP validated. Individuals entering India using their NVP should ensure that their passport is valid until 14 April 2011 and that the details on the passport match those on the Accreditation Application Form. NVP is issued following the successful completion of the background security check.

87

Step 4: Validation of Non Valid Pass
4a. Validation Validation will be an electronic process, activating the Barcode combined with a physical security application of the Holographic seal. The NVP cannot act as an entry pass, giving access to the venues, until it has been properly validated. 4b. Validation and Accreditation Facility Locations Validation of the NVP can be done at the Airport between Immigration Check and Baggage Collection, however if an individual wants his/her NVP to be validated at their respective Accreditation centers then this can be done in the following facilities: Accreditation Media Accreditation Centre Centers Location Pragati Maidan, Hall No.7D From Service Press/ Photographers, International/Local, Rights Holding, Broadcasts, Host Broadcasts and Non Rights Holders Opening 3rd Sep 2010 Hours 0900–19 00

NVP Lost or damaged before arrival in India If an NVP holder loses or damages his/her card, before his/her arrival in India, he/she should report it to the authorized representative of the CGA, who must then inform Delhi 2010 Accreditation Department in writing. Lost or damaged cards will be cancelled in the electronic Accreditation System and will not be validated even if recovered at a later stage. If, for some reason, an applicant has not been assigned with an NVP upon arrival to India he/she needs to make his/her own arrangements to enter the country Upon arrival to India, he/she should go to one of the aforementioned locations (Step 4b) in order to be issued with a valid Accreditation Card Lost or damaged Accreditation Card The Accreditation Card is lost, stolen or destroyed, that participant must contact the Venue Accreditation Help Office (VAHO) or the respective Accreditation Centre to fill out an application for loss of the Accreditation Card.

GAMES NEWS SERVICE
Introduction to Games News Service The Games News Service is an internal news agency which collects, creates and publishes a range of Games-related news and data on Games Information System (GIS). GIS is an essential resource providing timely, factual and accurate material for accredited media, broadcasters, sponsors, athletes, national delegations and the broader Games Family, which relies on the Games News Service for comprehensive coverage of the events and sporting competitions and many other aspects of the Commonwealth Games. The Games News Service team consists of professional sports writers and specialists, researchers, editors, media volunteers and associated personnel. What the Games News Service Will Provide The articles prepared and published by the Games News Service include daily previews and reviews, competition previews and reviews, flash quotes from athletes and coaches, Media Conference highlights, stories about specific athletes and other media communications. The Games News Service will also provide a range of additional background information, such as athlete biographies, medal tallies, statistics, historical information and general Games news such as weather, transport, attendances etc. Any errors in information produced by the Games News Service which requires updating or amendment will be corrected as soon as possible and the revised versions marked ‘CORRECTED’. Games News Service Operation The Games News Service will generate most of the content 'on location' at competition venues, to channel it back through a central editorial team located at the Main Press Centre. A Games News Service team will be based at every competition venue, managed by a Games News Service Team Leader and Sports Information Specialist; the team will also consist of News Service Reporters and Flash Quote Reporters. How to Access Information Published by the Games News Service Games News Service articles and information will be distributed in hard copy via the pigeonholes located in the Main Press Centre and Venue Media Centres. Printed results will be distributed to the tabled tribunes. All Games News Service articles and information are accessible electronically via GIS.
