It was another very successful dinner dance and awards evening this this year, held again at Birkenhead Park Rugby Club. This year attended by well over a hundred members, partners, family members and friends. After drinks and introductions there was a superb meal, supplied as usual by Alleycats, followed by more drinks, a lengthy prize draw and then the awards.
This year Vince Clegg was awarded Diver of the Year in recognition of all the hard work put over many years behind the scenes and more visibly during the re-development of the bar area in the club.
The Andy Marshall trophy for trainee of the year went to Andy Parsons. Andy also achieved his Sport Diver certificate this year.
This year, the Golden Egg award for the biggest cockup of the year went to Tony Fitzpatrick in honor of his tussle with a rampaging gatepost.
There were also some special club awards given this year.
To Alan Jones, for the years of service he has given to the club as chairman, keeping it running smoothly through some very difficult circumstances.
To Belinda Condron for all her efforts helping run the bar, baking cakes and organising events.
And finally to Chris Mills and Graeme Cooper for their work in re-developing the bar.
After a really enjoyable evening, some dodgy dancing and as a result of raffles and auctions over £1500 was raised for the Club. A great result. Big thanks to Dave Edwards, Belinda Condron, Graeme Cooper and everyone else who helped organise the event.
