You are warmly invited to the Inaugural Striders Annual Awards presentation night and dinner on Saturday night November 5. It has been a historic year for Striders as we grew up and became an adult, gaining incorporated status in May. It’s been another year of effort for all our walkers, runners and riders and we are looking to celebrate in style with a big feed, live music and lots of fun.
We have tried to get in ahead of all the usual end of years events and we hope that as many can come as possible. The food will be provided by a spit roast caterer and we’ve managed to keep the prices as low as possible to encourage as many as possible to come. We encourage you to bring your partners, friends, etc. You can bring your children if you like but there will be no supervision for them available – your call.
We have a number of awards, with the usual 10km, Half and Marathon titles plus Walkers Award and the Inaugural Club Champion Award. The last chance to score points in the Club Champions Award is Toowoomba Marathon weekend (10km, Half, Marathon) plus there’s still time left to set the record for 2011 in any of those distances. There will also be Coaches Awards and some not to serious awards like Media Tart, Gonna Award, Most Lairy Dresser, etc. Suggestions for more spoof awards and nominations welcome!
The night kicks off at 6:30 with finger foods. It’s a BYO drinks and alcohol. the only liquid on offer will be coffee and tea at the end of the night so remember to come prepared. At 7:30 we’ll kick off with the main meal followed by the presentations and then dessert and then time to kick our heels up. We would like to put together a Year In Perspective slide show so please send Stan any pictures you may of Striders at events, socials, etc.
Ticket Prices are $20 per adult $10 per child. Book early to help us organise catering please.
