The 2015 Tony Wynd Medal Black and Gold Presentation Night was a great way to cap off an amazing year for the Tigers.
Nearly 200 people reminisced, laughed, celebrated and danced the night away in a fitting way to close out the year.
Kade Klemke picked up his third consecutive Tony Wynd Medal as Best and Fairest in First Grade, with Brett Fruend not too far behind in voting.
As usual, a range of awards were presented across all grades, along with some special awards made in the memory of past players we have lost along the way.
The biggest cheers are always reserved for our “fifth team” – our faithful band of volunteers who dedicate hours and days of their own time to help ensure the success and comfort of our playing group. The ever popular Fred Gisik received a standing ovation when announced as 2015 Volunteer of the Year.
