Annual General Meeting and Holiday Party Wrap-Up

AGM Inception We held our Annual General Meeting on December 10, 2016, and followed immediately after with our holiday party. During the meeting, we elected some new board members, re-elected others to their same position, and sadly said goodbye to a few who stepped down to pursue other activities within the club. Now we look forward to an exciting 2017!

Awards and Special Recognition

Club Member of the Year: Brendan Rauer

The Club Member of the Year is traditionally a player that goes above and beyond with their commitment to the club. Brendan Rauer was consistently 2 hours early for every match, lining fields, flying flags, and creating a festive sporting atmosphere. Outside of matches, he welcomed all new faces at training and puck arounds, volunteering his time to teach the basics. We can’t say “thank you” enough.

Spirit of the NGAC Award: Ben Flynn

Our Spirit of the NGAC Award was added this year to honor a member who embodies what the NGAC is all about. Anyone who has met Ben knows he has a real passion for this club, and it shows through his garrulous personality, his encouragement, his teasing, his endless nicknames for everyone he meets, and his absolute zeal for all things Gaelic sports. We’re lucky he found us!
