Club members were happy to be reunited at this year's recent prizegiving given the sudden and early end to the season and time apart. It was a more casual and social affair this time, less talking, more chatting.
Many thanks to the 'Wakatere Fun Committee' for marking the occasion with a Mid-Winter Dinner and hosting us on the night. The clubrooms looked fantastic and the kids certainly had a night to remember.
Congratulations to all the class prizewinners for club racing, coaching groups and to the volunteers recognised - you are all winners.
A special congratulations to the recipients of Wakatere Prestige Prizes - with thanks to club member nominations and our selection panel, you are celebrated and acknowledged for your outstanding achievements.
