Latest News - Club Presentation Evening 2013 News and Features

The Club celebrated a successful season on the track at its Presentation Evening attended by 40 members, families and supporters. Competitions won by individual members at Club, County, Region and National level were acknowledged as well as members of both the Club's South East League teams who received trophies for finishing runners-up in Division 1 and 2. 

The most successful riders were brother and sister Ollie and Danni Riley (pictured above with club chairman John Nelson) and it was no surprise that these two were named First Team and Second Team Riders of Year respectively.  Ollie was also awarded the Club Top Scorer award, eight points ahead of Dan Chambers.  Katie Adams (pictured below) was named Most Improved Junior and also received the award Club Member of the Year for her support at Club Nights, recruitment activities and overall commitment.

The prestigious Hawks Sportsperson of the Year award, voted for by those present on the night, was won by Ollie Buxton for the second consecutive year.  The voting was very close with Ian Grange and Katie Adams just one vote behind the winner. Much talk at the gathering was around a challenging 2014 with revised League competitions, including a new National Friendly League. Members are busy training on Tuesday evenings for the British Indoor Championships in Coventry on January 4th  / 5th.  A big recruitment drive for youngsters will also be a major feature in 2014.

Go Ride Status Achieved

 

The Hawks have finally been granted the coveted GO-RIDE status by British Cycling. We have been trying for over two years to put everything in place to get this “kite-mark” which confirms we are a well-run and structured club with all policies in place.  

 

The application has been led by Dave Chambers with help from Ian Grange,  Well done – now we can go for the next level of CLUBMARK!
