Another great Ball!

A magnificent party atmosphere, on a less than perfect summer evening.

Once the dining was done, the band came on and from then until 12:45 there was a continuous stream of hits from all eras, and the dance floor was occupied all night. Testiment indeed to a good night.

Year on year the carnival seems to go from strength to strength. Helped by superb weather, this year’s was no exception.

This year’s theme “Goodies and Baddies” provided an ideal opportunity for people to let their hair down and dress up. Mind you I’m sure some need very little persuading.

Well, the Carnival week got underway to a fine start with the annual fun run. As well as the usual few laps around the Rec, there were a number of new events this year. They included the Egg (or was it Potato) and Spoon, Three Legged Sprint and the new Olympic event, The Family relay.

The Magnificent 7 !!.

Congratulations to the 7 members of the Creigiau 23 Skiing Team after returning still in one piece from their recent skiing trip.

Although, they have been skiers for many years it is only now that they have decided to push for Olympic glory. With ‘Mogul’ Mike, Phil ‘The Chair’, ‘Apres-Ski’ Amodeo, and 'Eagle' Eves leading the charge, let these age defying pioneers be an inspiration to us all.

Stop Press.

Well Done Adrian on a successful year.

Adrian's PresentationAdrian's Presentation
Huw (left) presenting a tankard to outgoing chairman, Adrian.

Although he might not admit it, I am sure there were occasions when Adrian was like the proverbial duck. While unruffled and calm on the surface, the duck is paddling furiously underneath. On the odd dinner evening, whilst Adrian chatted casually at the bar, little did we know that he had only secured the speaker hours before.

Despite the cricket tournament being called off due to bad weather, all the other events were a resounding success.

This year's ball was slightly later in the Summer and was a Las Vegas themed Summer Ball. Headlining that evening was TOM JONES International Sex Bomb !!.

I think everybody would agree that Adrian had a succesful year as Chairman, Well Done Ade!!.
