Annual Club Presentation Night 2016

A great time was had by all at the annual club presentation night held at Horsforth Golf Club. We were treated to an opening YMCA dance by some of the club’s finer specimens, as well as a half-naked ‘name that athlete’ competition which is a sight that will be forever tattooed on our collective subconscious.

Thanks to Bob Foulkes, Liz Huby and the club committee for making the night a huge success. Congratulations to all the prize winners (details below). The Club Championship format implemented by Tony Hazell now means there are even more opportunities for runners of all abilities to shine. Congratulations to Tony for his receipt of the Marc Springer award for outstanding contribution to the club. This is for his work on the Championship and also managing the Apperley Bridge Canter.

Thanks must also go to Andrew Charles (aka ‘The Supreme Athlete’) for his usual witty job as compère for the evening, as well as our Club Captains Bev Elliott and Alan Squire who presented the awards.

Routes will be organised as usual to suit different abilities but some group leaders may not be available. The route usually follows the Horsforth boundary so it could get muddy!! After the run, pie and peas will be served and the bar will be open until 2pm. If you want food please let Liz Huby know asap (including  any special dietary requirements) so we can order the pies. Liz can be contacted via Facebook or email.
