Adult Awards Night 13-14


Adult Awards Night 13-14

Club members came together for a night of celebration and to recognize those individual award winners for the season. A glittering black-tie event was started with excellent and authentic Indian food.  Awards were presented by the new Club Chairman, Matt Evans, and the three Hockey Managers – Mick Emery (Juniors), Wendy Emery (Ladies) and Chris Brinn (Men).  Afterwards there was dancing into the night to a live band. Before the awards got underway there was suitable reflection on the achievements of the outgoing Chairman, Roger Daniels.  Mike Evans, the Administration Manager, ran through the positive changes to the Club that had taken place under Roger’s 16 year tenure, and reminded everyone that the Club owed him a good deal.  He also provided a power-point presentation demonstrating some of Roger’s idiosyncrasies and embarrassing moments!  There was a standing ovation for Roger, who was presented with a case of very fine wines. The Clubperson of the Year Award (for all round services to the club) was presented to Adi Lake who has made an outstanding contribution, especially in his role as Fixtures Secretary for the Men’s Section and his umpiring.  He supports all club events and thoroughly deserves the accolade.  Young Clubperson of the Year Award went to Ella Collie, for her excellent all-round contribution to the Junior Section – playing, umpiring and helping with coaching. As every year, there is a vote by all members on the night for “Personality of the Season”.  This year it went to Vianne Gibbons for her wonderful service behind the bar.
