Club Presentation Evening March 25th 2017

On Saturday 25th March the club held its annual presentation evening at the John Smith's Stadium in Huddersfield. This was the first time we had used this venue  - we keep outgrowing the places we have used!
Prizes were given in various categories for athletes who had been nominated over the last year. We had a suite overlooking the Football/Rugby ground; there were awards for Athletes; quizzes with prizes; food provided and music. A right old shindig!

Thanks to all who arranged it, especially to David Owen (for ensuring the trophies were polished, engraved and ready for him to announce the winners); to Steve and Allyson Clark who booked the venue and organised the entertainment and everyone who came and made it a great success. Not forgetting Eddie Berry's quiz! The images behind the winners of them taking part in events that were on screen as they received awards were especially effective.

The Committee always try to nominate athletes and helpers who not only show promise but also commitment to the club and the sport over a period of time. It is always difficult to choose, as there are so many great athletes and we have a growing junior section with some real talent coming through. We also have a really supportive group of parents and helpers who have had a big impact at the club and are a key part of what we do. Without them we would struggle to keep the club going

You really mustn't be disappointed if you were not one of the trophy winners this time, you are still a really valuable part of our club, and there is always next time... the awards are given to inspire you to even greater things in the coming year!

Some images of trophy winners and the winners of the races in the morning are given below. You can see more on our facebook page provided by Jim McCormack who took the photos on the night. We decided not to have individual prize winner photos as there are so many and it would have taken up too much time. So there is a group photo here and facebook contains others. I'm sure many of you will have taken your own too!
We are very proud of our club and how it is developing, and we are really excited about the prospects for the coming season with so many great Athletes.
