Here are the 2006 photos of
the happy munchers
Association of Cake and Turkey Aficionados.
The very enjoyable lunch was, once again, at the Whangaparaoa RSA.
First up, there
are three views of much chatting
(sounds like an English Village)
before we started the important task of eating.
After lunch it was
time for the Trophy Winners to step forward and
receive their awards.
It must be
remembered that, many years ago, the club was
quite competitive and members strove for an award.
However, in recent times a more laid back approach has been taken, with some novel reasons being found for presenting the trophies.
John G presents
the Trialist Cup to Robert. This recognises Robert's
efforts in trialling out new and ingenious routes around town for us to enjoy.
Allrounder Cup went to Pelham for being, well, the
Interestingly, he got this one last year as well
will notice that Pelham was wearing crutches in
the above photo. This was a result of coming off in the rough stuff
in the Waitangi Forest a couple of months ago. He was an obvious
contender for the Ruff Stuff Cup.
Gaye received the
Junior Cup as a fairly
new and very enthusiastic member.
The Hill Climb
award went to Bryan, recognising his
recent crossing of the Rockies, in the course of crossing the
USA from the Pacific to the Atlantic.
Arnold and Marieke
were jointly awarded the Tourist Trophy recognising their
recent long distance overseas touring, and in anticipation of their planned
2007 journey from Beijing to Paris.
The Captain's Cup
went to John McK.
Now that we have a good record of attendance on Sunday
rides it has been decided that this one will go each year
to the member who has been on most Sunday rides.
(It probably would have gone to Pelham if he had not done such a good job qualifying himself for the Ruff Stuff Cup.)
