Maleny 2012 Sports Awards Nominations Now Open

Itís time to start thinking about nominating the outstanding individuals, administrators and organisations that make up sporting and recreational life in our district.

Every year, MDSRC recognises the many achievements by hosting the Sports Awards Dinner at the Showgrounds Pavilion.

The date will be Saturday February 25th 2012 and tickets to book your dinner tables will go on sale shortly.

Once again, your chef will be Sherry Wright, with MC Simon Denver.

As always, there will be an entertaining guest speaker; in 2012 it is former top NRL referee Tim Mander, who during his career was in charge of two grand finals and more than 300 NRL games, earning a name for being fair, even-handed and making accurate decisions under incredible pressure.

District clubs can nominate for the following awards:

Sportsperson of the Year (sponsored by MDSRC)   (2011 winner Hollie Sinclair, Maleny Golf Club)

Junior Sportsperson of the Year (sponsored by Rotary Club Maleny) (2011 winner Lachlan Hollyoak, Maleny Judo Club)

Club Administrator/Volunteer of the Year  (sponsored by Maleny Quota Club) (2011 winner Bob Hall, Rotary Club Maleny)

Sporting Team of the Year (sponsored by The Range News) (2011 winner The Maleny Little Athletics Centre)


Club/Organisation of the Year (sponsored by Andrew Powell MP & Maleny Coachlines)   (2011 winner The Witta Tennis Club).

Judges also award a Perpetual Junior Encouragement Trophy (won in 2011 by Aidan Titheradge, Maleny Little Athletics Centre) sponsored by David Lowden Tree Services.

MDSRC will be holding an information session to assist with information and enable clubs to make the most out of their nominations in early January 2012.

Nominations will close on February 10th 2012.

Once again, the awards and the dinner presentation night are all about honouring the achievements of our community organisations and shining stars and MDSRC encourage all clubs to participate in this exciting yearly event.
