Twenty divers and partners gathered on a windy Wednesday evening for the club's annual xmas meal and social. Another three joined us later on. This year we returned to Jaflong on Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, where we'd had our xmas do two years ago.
Prizes were given out on the night by Pat the Chair, including the Leaky Suit Award for Steve B, the International Traveller Award for the well-equipped Colin, and the Bermondsey BSAC Blog 2014 Magnum Opus Award for Jane and her forthcoming blog piece. On a more serious note, the top gong of the evening went to Kim. In choosing him as the second ever recipient of the Barry Maisey Award, the club recognised Kim's contributions this year, his help with training, and his organising of the successful Falmouth trip.The Barry Maisey Award is given every year to a member (not on committee) who has gone the extra mile for the club.
Colin did a fine job in organising this trip to Jaflong. Thanks, Colin, for organising, collecting deposits, and especially for sorting out the bill at the end.
A core group of revellers continued to The Bishop afterwards, for further refreshment.
