2011 Annual Awards Dinner
Our 2011 Annual Awards Dinner took place on Friday 11th March 2011 at the Drumossie Hotel, Inverness and a fantastic night was had by all! Nicky Marr did a great job of compering the evening and Alison Walker did a fascinating speech on succeeding as a businesswoman in a male dominated environment as a sports journalist.
After receiving a fantastic selection of entries the judges created their shortlists for each category and brought each shortlisted entry in for a live judging session at Contrast Function Suite in Inverness on Monday 7th March 2011. It was a nerve-racking time for all the entrants but the judges were highly impressed at the many skills and talents within the club.
The decisions were made and it was down to the sponsors of each award to announce the winners on the night. The results were as follows:
