Tuesday 26/09 Creative competition – judge Tanya Du Toit
I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful talent that you have in your club. I am also very thankful for the positive feedback that I received on the night. It was really lovely to have some members come up and thank me for my comments and critiquing. I try to make an effort in giving something useful with my judging. Although creative is harder to give technical critique to I hope I imparted some knowledge and inspiration and I can honestly say that I got inspiration from the work that I saw on the night. thank you all again for a great comp night.
I feel she was as well pretty good. Very constructive in feedback, not holding back with advise (if its creative it has to be creative!) and open however short and sharp. And I like that she judged the A grade harder than the B – grade. Something I sense not all judges do. – Jochen Hess

Friday 01/09 Nominee; Jochen Hess
The President’s Shield night is held annually in September and each intra club has a nominee based on their contribution to Norths, their intraclub, either their sporting achievements, service to sport or special interest group over the preceding year.
It is a fun evening with music and dancing, listen to what other intraclubs say about their nominated person. Throughout the evening there is a slideshow of each intraclubs activities and social events.
History – Presidents Shield Awards
In 1955 a group of dedicated Norths supporters, led by the late Harry McKinnon, formed North Sydney Leagues Club. With the help of their families and debenture holders, they bought a house in Merlin Street, North Sydney, which was the Club’s first home. In July 1964 due to lack of space and the threat of the new expressway, Norths sadly left their beloved Merlin Street home and moved to Cammeray.
With a new building and a new look Sports Council headed by Fred Orreill and his active committee, new Intra Clubs were added (see http://www.norths.com.au/community/intra-clubs/ for a current list).
The first Sportsman of the Year Night, chosen from the Intra Clubs, was held in 1980, the winner for 1979 being Graham Hoschke, who was the Secretary of the Fishing Club.
Former NORTHS Sydney Leagues Club President, Mr. Ray Beattie, renamed the ‘Sportsman of the Year’ award the ‘President’s Shield’.
