We will have a club prizegiving probably in October, but I will confirm with everyone about that date closer to the time.  For those who received trophies last year, please return these to Marlene by 15 September so that we can get them engraved for the new recipients.

We will start up our season again in February 2012.  Again, I will contact wrestlers to confirm the date.
