Christmas Presentation and Celebration
1st December 2012
Thank you to every one that attended our Presentation Ceremony. I hope you all had a good time I know I did.
It was wonderful to see so many friends and family there.
We were happy to present Heather Smith with our Turning Point trophy, As we are all aware this next year will be a big turning point for her lets hope she comes through it well. Unfortunately Heather was taken into hospital earlier in the day but the trophy was presented to her sister Laura on her behalf. We all send our best wishes to Heather that she will be home soon.
The outstanding Athlete went to John Allan. I think John deserves this as he has been one of our longest members and comes along every week, takes part in all sports and does his best at all times. He is a fine example to our younger athletes.
Outstanding badminton trophy went to Laura Ferguson, for her support and good example she has shown others in giving an interest in badminton to other athletes.
Outstanding swimmer went to Jack Davidson. Jack has improved so much in the time he has been with us, both in swimming, and personal confidence a very popular young man with team members.
Outstanding Judo went to Dominic Elliott. His coach said he is enthusiastic and so much improved in a very short time and was happy to award him the trophy.
A special award was presented to Jennifer Carmody, the little girl with so much enthusiasm and determination.
I hope you will see that to be awarded one of our trophies does not mean you have to be the best, the fastest, or the most popular. Sometimes it is the quietest and the one that tries the most that gets overlooked I have made it my mission to make sure those athletes are not passed over.
We should remember our motto:-
LET ME WIN, IF I CANNOT WIN, LET ME BE BRAVE IN THE ATTEMPT
