After the mega success of the 2012 combined Crimbo party and awards night we decided to make this years awards a stand alone event. If you need a recap of the night (or not in the case of some of our karaoke heroes!) there are more pics on the Lincsquad Facebook page.
The Layas started early for Team Dobbers who spent most of the afternoon getting the room ready with a fabulous display of Lincsquad flag and banners, with Rob & Erica Carpenter sourcing balloons, party poppers & glow sticks galore. Anyone walking into the place were left in doubt what they were there for! Also excellent work by Gary Horner for the music and setting up the karaoke. Superb work guys.
Master of Ceromonies Steve Dolby kicked off procedings with the raffle and loads of Lincsquad goodies on offer. Plenty of winners were more than eager to accept the free coaching sessions, trisuits and transition towels but the frantic passing over of winning tickets to spouses and (oh the shame!!) children whenever a race entry was pulled out of the draw had to be seen to be believed.
Prior to the main awards there was a bit of admin where Adam Ingleton received his World Quadrathlon Series AG trophy, Steve Grocock his Brigg Sprint AG trophy and a polite humble appology from Luke Osborn for breaking Mel Lucas’ Brigg Sprint trophy who also received a replacement. Nice one guys!

The Christian Brown Award
Any report on the awards night could not go unfinished without a mention of the Christian Brown award.
A deeply moving and heartfelt introduction from Phil Binch mentioned the drive, determination, energy, spirit and so many other qualities that Chrisitian brought not only to the club but everyone else he met. With Christian’s parents and family in attendance it was an incredible moment when his dad Pete, Mum Christine and Phil presented the Christian Brown Award to the person they felt showed all the same attributes as Christian.
For strength of character, never giving up and everything else that made Christian special the highly deserving winner received a standing ovation.
That person was Steve Beevers.
