Since our last newsletter, a lot has happened. We wound up July with the club having our annual dinner and awards night. As usual, it was a great night, great food, great company and heaps of laughs. I had the honour on the night to present John “Smudga” Smith a Life Membership. Considering how often John is at the club, it was incredible that with the voting process needed to get club approval for a Life Membership he was genuinely surprised at the presentation. Thank you all for not letting the cat out of the bag.
A big thank you must go out to our Social Secretary Alan Staton for the wonderful effort organising the club’s annual dinner and awards night. The food was plentiful and very tasty. There is a lot of background work that goes into putting the dinner together. All the sponsors are contacted for donations of prizes for the night and then the prizes need to be picked up. On this point, as a club, we are indebted to our sponsors for their generosity and constant support. We had great prizes as always and most of us went home with some goodies. Our sponsors are listed in the newsletter, please support our sponsors and when you visit our sponsors, let them know you are a member of NSFFC. This gives positive feedback to our sponsors and encourages them regarding their investment in our club.
