MACCL End of Season Presentation Evening
Happy New Year to you all!
For some eight years or so, we have had an “end of season” awards event. Initially, in a hotel function room close to the final venue or similar…for the last four years or so at Wilmslow Rugby Club (& Running Club).
WRC has worked well…reasonably accessible for most, good facilities, good food and very reasonably priced…with a new caterer, the food is now even better!
On the whole, it’s been very successful for juniors while for seniors, less so…It’s been a delight to see the looks of excitement on the juniors faces as they are cheered by all as they collect both individual & team awards. Everyone celebrating his or her success! We tend to sell some 200 tickets and 65% are juniors and parents. This does mean that very often the winners of the Senior Awards are not there to collect their prizes. It becomes a damp squib!
Personally, I do believe it is an event that we should push…a fitting end to the season, the chance to relax etc. With the growth of the League, having all awards ready to present (and thus all results cumulative & tables finalized) on the day is very challenging.
Please can you let me have your thoughts on how we can ramp up support? Do Clubs want this? What is the alternative?
Best wishes for the remainder of the season and for 2022.
Nick, Val, Stephen, Pete and Ruth
