We have had a great run in these awards. Perhaps put it down to Brexit!! There is still a lot going on between now and the end of the season - race nite, beetle drive, Club Awards Dinner, lots of hockey still to be played, the now legendary Beer Barrel/Prosecco and Cheese Night to celebrate the end of the season and Bill's over 75 competition. If you want o get involved see your captain or a committee member
