Phoenix Athletics and Triathlon club

Pitch Perfect Awards

Phxawards18_008_low

Awards night moved to a new venue this year, and it proved a popular choice. Members of all ages packed into the Boundary Room overlooking the Sussex Cricket Club ground. The (vegan) food was pretty damned good and we kept the bespoke bar pretty busy. What with music, visual displays, dancing and animated conversations (often about running!) the evening could be judged an undeniable success.

Oh, and there were awards presented. Chairman Mike Townley managed to keep matters to a pitch perfect 45 minutes and Lance Bellers was duty photographer. A selection of his excellent photographs accompany this report. There are more available on our group Facebook page or you can email us if there is a particular one you would like a copy of. So thanks to Mike and Lance (who organised the slide show and music as well), to Paul Whelpton for negotiating the organisational minefield and to Zeina Clare for making the social arrangements. Our ex- Chairman Paul Collicutt (whose Phoenix membership goes back to 1981) declared " The awards night was the best awards night in the club's history....and I've been to all of them!”
