Ahead of the End of Season dinner, I am pleased to present the opportunity to vote for the Barnes Bridge Lady of the Year, as voted for by the members of Cygnet Rowing Club.
Every year BBL select a Cygnet of the year, presented at the BBL Christmas party. With BBL invited to our End of Season Dinner this weekend, it is our chance to return the favour.
A short list of candidates has been prepared and you can vote at the link below. We are looking to you to help decide who should be recognised for their contribution to our Club, the boathouse and rowing life, for their help and support through the year and generally making the lives of us Cygnet rowers that little bit better and a little bit easier. There are of course many worthy candidates from our sister club but we have whittled the numbers down to a short list of six for you to vote. You may only vote once.
The nominees (alphabetically) are: Anna, Carly, Charlotte, Hannah, Jo B, and Sian Please take a moment to have a think and vote here.
Should you wish to add any comments in support of your vote and who is best suited for the prize, please email me directly. The vote will close at 12:00 on Saturday. I look forward to seeing many of you on the waddle and at the meal this weekend, where the result will be announced.
