Saturday night the club was filled with Champions, friends and invited guests. Unfortunately our President was unable to be there, but our very capable Vice President, Julie South along with Mrs President, Karenne Gatehouse, stepped in and did a wonderful job of presenting awards and trophies to all of the winners.
