The New Weddington Isles were themselves honoured with an “MCA Distinction Award” for “their technological assistance to the MCA as well as their extraordinary domestic growth and capabilities”.
The Awards were presented by Zecheriah O’Hair, President of the MCA, and Senior Minister Rory McPhail. The President opened the event, stating:
“Good evening everyone! I'm very happy to be here tonight, and first and foremost I cannot understate just how proud I am of the MCA and each and every one of its members.
“Despite a chaotic and rather overwhelming year, our community has thrived under pressure, and in less than 10 months has quickly grown to be the LARGEST intermicronational organisation to be based in one country and the largest Australian micronational organisation on record!
“This could only be possible due to the amazing work of my cabinet, who I remain extremely grateful for, and who's contribution will remain in the history of Australian micronationalism long after they retire.
“The other great contributor to our success, and, of course, the focus of all our work, operations and programs are our valued and relentlessly hardworking members!
“From SYDNEY to PERTH and from MELBOURNE to MACKAY, each individual micronationalist working in this organisation is irreplaceable, for what is the Micronational Community of Australia without AUSTRALIAN MICRONATIONS and AUSTRALIAN MICRONATIONALISTS?”
At the conclusion of the event the President presented all attendees wih an impressive booklet: “The Micronational Community of Australia: An Overview of Australian Micronationalism in 2021”, detailing members of MCA and key achievements of the MCA during 2021. Lord Watitune, John Brookes, was again honoured to be personally thanked in the booklet for “his great work developing our website and helping to advertise the organisation and its members”.
