On behalf of the Club and Committee I would like to thank Yvonne for her time and effort over the last 4 years in her position of Ladies Captain. Yvonne is standing down as the Ladies Captain after the final Gwent League fixture at Bath on the 2nd March. She has been an enthusiastic leader at many events and led the Ladies section to a clean sweep of awards at the Gwent League in the 2011/12 season, and then followed this up by taking the Ladies to Victory at last year’s Castles Relay, something the Club hadn’t achieved for 10 years.
This has been Yvonne’s 3rd stint as Ladies Captain and as a result has put a lot of time, effort and energy into the position. And I’m sure will be a tough act to follow.
I’m sure the Ladies would like to show their thanks to Yvonne as well.
I’d also like to thank Mike Davies who has taken on the responsibility of looking after the Men’s Vets team at the Castles Relay the last few years, but this year has taken a more active role on the Castles organising committee. Mike has also helped out at other Masters events looking after teams. Having led the Vets team to Victory over the last two Castles he has set a high bar to live up to.
To Nick and Stuart, thanks for stepping up to the plate at not only the Castles but at the 12 Stage Road Relays and the Gwent League, you have formed the back bone of many a team since I became Captain and shown enthusiasm and invaluable help with team selections.
So I would like to thank you all for your valued time and effort and I hope to see your continued enthusiasm at future events.
There will shortly be a request for those interested to put their names forward for roles on the Club’s Competitions Sub Committee.
