Another successful Presentation Lunch at the Woodlands on December 11th 2016, with over 50 Wheelers, partners and friends.
After lunch it was time for the prize giving.
Club President Bill McLennan was the master of ceremonies, ably assisted by the club legend that is David McCallum.
First award was to Joe McFadyen as the 10 Mile Time Trial Club Champion for 2016. Unfortunately Joe was unable to attend, so no photo!
Then Jim Petrie was awarded the trophy for the 25 Mile Time Trial Club Champion for 2016 and also he was voted by the Club Members as the Bob Kilhooley Most Improved Rider 2016 for his return to competing in time trials after a few years absence 🙂
The next award was for the Tourist Trophy, which was awarded to Graeme Davidson for his help and guidance on the Club Runs.
The next award was the Male Sportive (Male) to Rob Howarth for the most miles completed in sportives in 2016 with 445 miles in 5 events.
Karen Knight was then awarded the Sportive Award (Female) for 2016 after completing 628 miles in 7 sportives in the year.
The final and most prestigious award is the Club Member of the Year, again voted by the Club Members. This year Gillian Elliott was the worthy winner for all her efforts in organising the social events, the club weekender, trip to Mallorca, the Presentation Lunch, curry night and for even getting us club leisure wear.
Well done to all the winners, all thoroughly deserved.
David McCallum then said a few words in memory of Peem Brewster who we lost in 2016, but also recounted how it was now 45 years since Dave, Jim Petrie and Jimmy Millar set the Scottish 10 Mile Time Trial record! Doesn’t time fly.
It was great that all 3 were at the lunch to relive that great achievement.
The raffle was then held with some luckier than others 🙂 thanks again to everyone who donated prizes. And that wrapped up the official proceeding for the afternoon and the serious drinking could begin 🙂
Thanks to Gillian and all who helped organise and make the day go so well. Thanks too to The Woodlands for another fine lunch.
