Falcons AGM and Presentation Day was held on the 9th of May 2015. But as a quorum was not met, the AGM was re-scheduled for the 16th May where the quorum was met and the meeting was held.
The big ticket item on the agenda was voting in an updated Northwood Falcons Softball Club Constitution, which of course was passed. The other integral part of the AGM is of course nominating and voting in the committee for the upcoming season. Cassie Liddy and Geoff Norden have once again volunteered to steer the ship for their third term. Both Michelle Clyne and Sarah Logan reprise their roles of Secretary and Treasurer respectively. Jana Boulet, Nicci Norden (Uniforms) and Lauren West (Website/Communications) all return to the General Committee. Ruth Caldwell will continue writing the newsletters. We say goodbye to Tegan Long and Leigh Howard and hello to Erin Dunstan, who has joined on to the General Committee. Welcome aboard! There are still some positions vacant, so if you wish to volunteer and help out- then get in contact with one of the above names!
On to the fun part- presentations!
It was a bit of a cold and miserable day, so this year we moved back in to the pavilion. Food was aplenty and the drinks were flowing. Below you will find all the winners of the MVPs and Coaches Awards- well done guys! All thoroughly deserved winners. Congratulations goes to Hailey Norden for winning the Elaine Schultz Award for Most Promising Junior, Ruth Caldwell- Best Club Girl for her tireless work on the newsletter, coaching and just being all-round great voice for the club, Carolyn Jackson- winning a Service Award for her efforts organising the highly successful Trivia Night and Lauren West- being awarded the President Award, which (if I say so myself) would have been a great end to the day- but there were bigger and more important
things to get on to! The day finished off with (much to her surprise) a Lifetime Membership being awarded to Cassie Liddy. Her love for the club is unmistakeable and it shows with all the effort she has put in over the years. From starting out in pixies (juniors) all the way up to putting her hand up to (co)run this awesome club of ours- you cant deny her love for the sport and the Falcons. Congratulations Cass!
