End of Season Awards Dinner
 A huge thank you to everyone who attended our End of Season Awards Dinner on Friday night – there is something truly special about having so many of the Club together in the one room sharing stories, celebrating achievements and connecting with like-minded members of our HTC community!
Congratulations to all of our award winners (listed below) on their achievements over the 2021-22 Season.
 A special thank you to everyone who nominated and voted their peers for an Award, our Club Coaches for their selections and inspiring words on the night, and to Tammy Burton – on behalf of the Burton family – who shared a special memory of Ash, and presented the Ash Burton Award for Club Person of the Year.
I’ve included a selection of photos from the night – but please upload, share and tag @hawthorntriclub if you have any of your own!
