This year at IBS club level we have seen young members coming through and older members of our club really coming through and making a name for themselves. We have seen young athletes shining an making their first appearances at National level. We also have had members of IBS in the seniors who have many years behind them, mix it with the best, again at National level.
IBS will celebrate their season with the Annual Awards and Presentation evening to be held on Saturday 12 May at Kanahooka, where young athletes are expected to come up against the more experienced athletes when it comes to the Special Awards section. Judged on performances over the season, the Special Awards section is one of the closest for some time, and is taken on performances from all members of the club. Make sure you have this date in your diary and come along for not only a great evening, but to share with your club mates and acknowledge the performances of yourself and fellow athletes. Divisional point score winners will also be announced and also runners up, and this too has been very close in a number of divisions. Records are made to be broken and one minute your name could be written down for a record and then in the next heat it is broken. Awards such as the Special Awards and Point score winners and runners ups are there for good, and no one can take away this achievement and should be applauded by all members.
Date: Saturday 12 May at 6.45 pm for a 7.00 pm start, Forrest Grove Community Centre off Kanahooka Road.
So on the back end of a great summer season, come along and see how you have performed. Who knows your name may be up there for one of the Special Awards or you may have achieved more points in the local club point score than you think.
