This event was held Sunday 3rd September immediately after the competition on Tolpits Lake.
Trevor Francis started proceedings by welcoming those present and thanking all those who had helped in various ways throughout the season.
Trevor went on to thank Tony Edwards' partner Maggie, and and her two daughters, for helping Bob Horwood with the excellent barbecue, for providing a selection of delicious cakes and also taking photographs of members receiving trophies. He also thanked Ian Halford's wife Marcia for providing some very tasty Malaysian Pasties. Nobody needed to go home hungry.
