Presentation Night! A really disappointing turn-out, with so many wanting the night to be on a Friday instead of a Thursday, there were less than 50 people in the hall!
Many teams didn't even bother to send at least one represenative to pick up trophies, especially Writtle SSC & Nag's Head who had team trophies to pick-up as well as competition trophies & medals... The raffle was well supported by those present, but we still made a loss mainly due to lack of numbers, therefore the 2016/17 winter & summer season's finance's lost £50.37... Many thanks to Pete Shea & Adam Miller who sold raffle tickets, to Sue Kateley for folding the tickets & conducting the draw; also thanks to the committe members who helped set-out the trophies (Jordan), set-up the oche's (Senan) and conduced the draw for the Blind Draw Pairs (Matt)... There were some interesting pairings, and Jason Bates & Alan Green were the winners with Bob Elliott & Olly Nye the runners-up...

Although I'm around for another season and next September / October will be my last hosting the presentation night, you need to decided on what you want in the future, because there were so many trophies & medals that players didn't really want, but when I gave every team secretary & captain the chance to cancel 5-weeks prior to presentation, no-one except BMS Eagles and Fox & Hounds replied to my e-mail; therefore I had no choice other than to purchase all trophies... If you don't want trophies, or in fact, if you don't want a presentation night then you need to let the committee know; at the AGM, everyone was up for a blind draw pairs competition & a Friday night, last night didn't prove this!  The actual time to set-up was 75 minutes, when we got the cupboard key & the presentation itself only took 30 minutes... It should be a night of celebration and a chance to all get together and have a laugh !
