Buckley Runners Presentation at the Running Hare

The annual presentation on June 7th at the Running Hare was a great success. I didn’t count but there had to be about thirty runners and family there. It began with the usual; eating, drinking and chatter, briefly interrupted by the presentation of awards before returning to the drinking and chatter. It was good to see so many of us there, and I know several others who were unable to attend because of other commitments.

It is the chance for the chairman to thank and congratulate everybody in the club for their contribution to the club in last year, whatever the level, whatever the type of running, whatever the level of success; they all make the club what it is. The club is what the members make it, and as such we are all winners.

The evening is clearly about the club competitions, so here are the scores on the doors. It is a combination of some regulars with some interesting result, but I’m delighted to see some returners and some new names appearing on the score sheets.

Members Award

As usual the members’ award showed the range of contributions that members make to the club. Reading the nominations is really heart-warming, it makes you realize that the members appreciate the work done by so many people in so many ways. Although I am concerned about nominations for dancing and wearing very short shorts! Congratulations go to everybody who was nominated.

And a big thank to the staff at The Running Hare, they did us proud. The warm friendly atmosphere made for an excellent event.
