Queen's Baton Relay at Parkes
Queen's Baton Relay is a relay around the world held prior to the beginning of the Commonwealth Games. The Baton carries a message from Queen Elizabeth, the Head of the Commonwealth. Day 35 of the relay saw the baton start in West Wyalong, travel to Forbes, and end at Parkes, with the baton being passed from runner to runner as it passed through each town. The baton ended the day with Parkes local, Darrin Gibson, who brought it to the Dish at the beginning of Day 36. (Image credit: John Sarkissian)
