I’d like to thank Daniel Kahura, Nev Brooker and Brad Clive for their hard work in organising the event, Robbie Lange for his smooth MC debut (the first year of many to come) and to our office staff, Lynley Gibson, Elmarie Els, Jackie Redmond and Ngaire Lester for their support and hard work in preparing for the night. Also, to the band and sound crew a big thank you for your time and effort!
Finally, congratulations to both Daniel Prescott and Patrick Smith on successful sporting feats of late. Daniel placed 7th at the Inter-Regional Cross Country and only five seconds behind 2nd place. Patrick finished a bronze medal overall at the Canterbury MAG Level 9 event in Gymnastics. Well done Daniel and Patrick!
