Tygerberg Raceway Annual Pricegiving 2012/3
Saturday 25 May 2013 Tygerberg Raceway had its annual prizegiving at the Rusticana Wine estate near Klapmuts and was enjoyed by all who attended. The venue was brilliantly prepared and all the champions in all classes received what was due to them. A very hard and competitive season has come and gone and the organizers and management of Tygerberg Raceway went out of their way with no expenses spared to provide a brilliant function and venue for all who were part of the club for the season... Here is a brief rap of the function.
The evening was opened by the chariman Nicky Koegelenberg who gave a brief talk about the season in general and thanked all that was involved and explained where the club is mobing and what the vision of TRW is for the new season. He also thanked Chris and Christelle Liebenberg for creating such a great club for all to take part on. He then called Pieter Theron to the stage to do his thankyou's.
Pieter Theron (COC) then went on to thank all from his side and said that he was happy to see TRW move in the right direction and was very proud to be part of the club. He then proceeded to do the marshals and officials awards for all who were part of the club for the season. He then called Chris and Christelle Liebenberg to the stage to do their thankyou's.
Chris and Christelle then made their speech about their vision for the club which revceived a huge ovation from all. They then proceeded to do their special awards. They handed out awards to individuals who did work above and beyond for the club.
