Social and Presentation Night

Social Evening and Prize Presentation

On Saturday 26th November the Barnesbury CC and our guests welcomed Graeme Obree to the annual social evening. Thank you to all of you who made the night a great success.

The evening started with close up magic by John Penman and photo's with our guest of honour. After dinner Graeme spoke about his experiences in the sport and an insight into his career, before congratulating the winners of the annual club trophies.

Graeme drew the winners of the raffle, who were:

1st Prize - Bradley Wiggins signed Sky Jersery - Martha

2nd Prize - Mark Cavendish signed HTC Jersey - Christine Ann Voyce (CAV)!

3rd Prize - Team Sky Jersey signed by 7 of the team - Chris Nairn

After a further raffle with prizes kindly doneated by members and Proctor and Gamble, Four in a Bar Ceilidh band finished the eveing off superbly. As organiser can I thank those in the club for believing in me, Graeme Obree for being such a wonderful special guest, to John Penman and the band for their patience when we were over running on time. Thanks to Quentin from Tyneside Vags for videoing the evening and posting it on YouTube.

A special mention must go to Eric Potts (who I forgot to mention on the night...sorry) for taking all the photo's that will soon be posted on our website for people to download free of charge. Throughout the year Eric took the majority of the photo's used in the video footage at the evening and tonight was no exception. Thank you.

The Village Hotel were the perfect hosts to round off a great 12 months for the club which has resulted in the club being awarded ClubMark status.

Thanks Again
