Awards were then handed out by Coaches Tatjana and Besnik with help from Ivor Davies, Maureen Connolly, Thelma Wright and Brian McCalder.

Thank you to our sponsors whom donated generously towards our Silent Auction ~ without your generosity, we would not have been able to raise over $6,000 for the club! Thank you as well to all the people behind the scene working hard to make this event a success, from securing auction items to making the event run smoothly.
