The Club’s annual awards were presented at the club AGM and the following pool night. They are as follows:
Leslie Watson Certificate: for Best Novice Paddler
The “Best Novice Paddler” certificate is awarded to the adult and junior paddler who have shown the most enthusiasm to become a more aware and rounded paddler within the Club.
Roy Metcalf Certificate: for Most Improved Paddler
The “Most Improved Paddler” certificate is awarded to the adult and junior paddler who have improved significantly as a paddler within the Club.
Rees Gibbon Trophy: for Outstanding Contribution to the Club
The “Outstanding Contribution to the Club” cup is awarded to the person who has contributed to the club as a whole, not necessarily on the water.
Stephen Courtney Trophy: (Silly Steve Award)
The “Silly Steve Award” is awarded by the winner of the previous year to the person who best represents the spirit and character of Silly Steve, an enthusiastic kayaker who encouraged many people to get out on the river as often as possible, who always smiled and always made you smile.
The little yellow bendy man must accompany the winner on every trip, forever.
Well Done to all those who received an award!
