End of Season Dinner and Presentation Night

The End of Season get together in June this year saw our members get together for a themed night of fun, showing their lighter sides by donning “Silly Hats”.

We celebrated club achievements at the State and National Championships and individual members achievements. Gary, Chris, Anna and Lynne were worthy joint recipients of the Coaches Award for their commitment, on and off the water, to training and improving their dragon boating skills. Daryl was awarded Club Member of The Year in recognition of his ongoing contributions to club activities throughout the season. The evening also provided members with an opportunity to acknowledge and thank committee members and coaches for their ongoing work and support throughout the past year.

A new award was introduced this year, in memory of Jennifer Letts, to recognise a club member who has stood out as a strong motivator and role model for other members.  This year’s award went to Jen herself for her resilience, role modelling and tireless support of the club despite adversity.

The evening was a fun farewell to a successful season! As we close off one season and move into the next, our primary goals will be building fitness, endurance and strength.  Let’s make this next season a winner for ASD.

See you on the water!
