Senior President’s Award – Rocky Stone
This year I found it very hard to come up with this award as it in the past is given to a driver but this year things have changed a little with a lot of thought and consideration I decided to give this award to someone that’s not a driver but has been in the past so this year I give the President’s Award to Rocky Stone. He took on track manager role which he decided to do when nobody else would step into the job. I’m not sure if everyone realises that this job is an extremely important job at our club, it’s probably more important that being president, secretary, or even the treasure because if the tracks not up to the rules in the rule book then the drivers don’t get to race. So congratulations Rocky on taking out the senior president’s award.
Pam Stone has helped me in the canteen for 7 years and now has helped me at every race meeting in the tower in the last 3 years.
Christine Wyatt has for many years worked in the canteen and in the tower lap scoring. I would like to give this appreciation award to Christine as she has returned to the canteen this year when nobody else would step forward. Christine has received help from the Tasmanian Alpine Club until we have a club member to manage the canteen. With the Tasmania Alpine Club receiving half of our profit everyone’s club is losing because we won’t have the funds to improve our complex if we need or want too.
I would also like to thank and congratulate everyone that has helped me during my 5 years of being president you all have done a wonderful job.
