  • 2002/2003 Presentation Evening

    At the our Annual Presentation Evening last night, Jordan Burden, for the first time, was awarded the Michael Rossek Trophy for the highest placed Junior Boy in the Graded Races Pointscore. Elise Cause received the Ronald Exley Trophy for the highest placed Junior Girl.

    The Jack Smart Encouragement Award was presented to Andrew Stanford, who steadily improved over the season.

    Team Johnston continued their winning ways in the Relay Competition, taking home the trophy for the 5th year running in a very hotly contested competition.

    The night was very enjoyable and those people that stayed after the presentation had a good time joining in the fun and entertainment provided by Meaghan Legge, Rachel Johnston, Sarah Johnston and Belinda Wood.

    Thank you to all the people who helped organise the presentation and who helped throughout the season.

    Thank you especially to the Trophy Committee:
    Patricia Johnston
    Margaret Edwards
    Pauline Legge
    for their work selecting and setting up the trophies.

    You can find the season results in the Club Races section and the full list of other awards presented on the night in the Presentation section.
