2016 WAORRA Club Championship Awards

Our annual awards presentation night was held on Saturday 19 November. Congratulations to all of the 2016 champions and award winners!

The 2016 WAORRA Awards Presentation Night was held at the Glen Iris Bar and Restaurant in Jandakot. Club members, friends and family enjoyed a four course meal and were entertained by Perth comedian Cameron McLaren (aka Cam from Midland). You can catch his shows at the Fringe World Festival running in Perth from 20 Jan to 19 Feb 2017.

Congratulations to raffle prize winners Andrew Pugh who won a Thunderbox battery box; Celeste Baxter who won an OZ-PIG camping stove; Corey Smith who won an 8ltr Engel thermo cooler/warmer; and Kylie Giles who took home a cooler bag. Massive thanks to Lyons Airconditioning Kewdale for the donations – you can find them at 157 Chisholm Cres, Kewdale or online www.lyonsaircon.com.au.

And who can forget bloody Emma Scott who won yet another prize, taking home the door prize of a weekend getaway at Preston Beach. Let’s hope that ends her lucky streak!

Thanks to the Glen Iris Bar and Restaurant for the great food and bar service, Sports Director Ben Armstrong for organising trophies and awards, and Social Director Emma Scott for organising the event and raffle prizes.
