Presentation Evening

What snow !!!!!
Well done to everybody who made it to the presentation evening.  They had forecast snow and I think only the O'Connells didnt make it.  they were snowed in in Knaresborough.  Everbody came from various places from Ilkley, Bradford, Leeds. Keighley.  There were 41 children presented with a trophy and both adults and children were presented with the EBCC trophies and medals. 

After the presentation there was some excellent food - needed for the journey home.  The DJ got the children and various adults dancing - well done to Tony for his moves and both Andrew and Samantha who had been itching to strutt their stuff ( I think they only wanted some sweets).

It was an excellent evening to end the 2012 year. We wish both Hannah, Luke and Paul well in their new club and hope they will come and see us somethime

Thanks to Jim and Brenda for organising it an excellent job -

Well done to Thomas and Chris Radcliffe for digging cars out of the car park.  I hope everybody made it home safely.
