Tickets have been pre-purchased for Friday 4th September, at 7pm in the showroom. Cost is $30pp.
President’s Shield is fast approaching, we would like to see many members attend, so come along and support Steve. It’s a great community evening with local politicians and Norths dignitaries.
The President’s Shield night is held annually in September and each intra club selects nominee based on their contribution to Norths, their intraclub, either their sporting achievements, service to sport or special interest group over the preceding year.
Come along and support Steve, 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.
It must be a win for the camera club this year!
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’.
