2012 Season End Banquet
The New Westminster Salmonbellies held their year end awards banquet on Saturday, September 15th at the New Westminster Curling Cub. As always a packed house of players, volunteers and support staff that enjoyed a great dinner prepared by the Curling Club followed by remarks from the team President, Dan Richardson.
A very special thank you went out to all of the volunteers who donated many hours behind the scenes and during the games to help make each home game an atmosphere to be enjoyed by all fans who came to Queens Park Arena.
Special “Thank You” canvas awards were presented to each of the volunteers and directors of the Salmonbellies.
Team pictures were presented to all the players in attendance followed by league award plaques presented to Ilija Gajic and Ian Hawksbee for being selected to the WLA second team allstars.
The 2012 team awards were then presented to the players who also received trophies supplied by Hyack Trophies.
A great night with good friends who can’t wait for the 2013 season to start and who all share a common goal - the Mann Cup at Queens Park Arena in 2013.
