Joe just misses out

Joe just missed out on the award for county Junior Coach of the Year, finishing second to ... someone from a hockey club I think (?)

Anyway - an enjoyable evening with plenty of free food and drink, for those that missed it (and Hayley and Carla definately didn't miss the latter...).

The important lesson is to make sure that we get more nominations in next season. Joe was the only person the club put forward (I was put forward by someone else), and if you are not nominated you cannot win. A bit obvious, but we cannot complain if other clubs do put people forward and as a result win awards, recognition, money etc. - the people who run this night give out grants and other support for sport in Hertfordshire, and they are only going to do that for clubs they know about.

And even more importantly, said Hayley and Carla on the way home, we risk missing out on the free beer!

Finally its a great chance to practice the art of holding a plate and glass, and eating/drinking while standing up - something that is indeed very useful in adult life as anyone who has been to any conferences will know. Hayley found this even more challenging as she only had one hand - so she was reduced to browsing directly from the main food table. However after a few drinks she found that the pain in her hand seem to be less noticable but agreed it was unlikely that Joe or the regional coaches will allow her to replace the half time drinks with something a bit stronger...

Anyway - congratulations to Joe - who may soon be needing an extension to his awards cupboard!
