The club is once again to make an award to one member of the senior section who is considered to be the outstanding athlete of the year, following the popularity of previous years’ awards. This will take the form of a tankard and, in order to make a representative choice, I am asking all members of the senior section to vote for the member they consider deserves the award most. The choice does not necessarily have to be a club champion. Factors worthy of consideration would include a substantial improvement over the year, an outstanding result in a particular meeting, or you may like to consider a contribution to the coaching side of the club or a member who has represented the club in a manner deserving of recognition. Members aged at least 15 years can make nominations.
Awards will be made at the Christmas Handicaps on SUNDAY 20TH December and nominations will be accepted on the day. Alternatively, you can vote using the online form below, or post your nominations to either Kevin Dillon at 22 Ashdene Road, Withington, Manchester M20 4WX (e-mail: Kevin.firstname.lastname@example.org ) or Debbie at 34 Crossefield Road, Cheadle Hulme SK8 5PE or telephone us (Kevin on 07815 876962 or Debbie on 07977203478).
