What a night! Over 200 people came to our first Haddington Hockey Awards Evening last night. Fantastic to have such great support from our ever growing #hockeyfamily where we rewarded our most valued and most improved players as well as honouring our #weewarriors
Our president Linda Wood opened the evening then I introduced our guest Amy Brodie who gave an inspirational speech on the ups and downs of her hockey career. The presentation of awards followed to lots of cheers and clapping from the enthusiastic audience. They even kindly laughed at the host’s attempts to be funny – thanks guys! Winners not only had their awards presented by Amy but they got their photo taken with her, snapped by the fantastic Emma Campbell. After the presentation, a long line of kids waited patiently to get a photo with Amy and her autograph on their sticks, hockey balls and socks. Final job of the night was to draw the raffle and spot the ball prizes. Amy drew the winning tickets so if you didn’t win, blame her! 😂 Massive thank you to all those who generously donated raffle prizes big and small – each and every one was appreciated. Prizes will be available at training for those who missed the draw.
