After a season interrupted by rain and clouds, the Quokkas season came to a close on Friday October 12 at the inaugural Quokkas Best and Fairest presentation night in a shower of light and glitz.
After a customary slow start, the attendees arrived in their finery and quickly got stuck-in to the 2-for-1 drink specials. These were doubly appreciated as The Revs summation of the season began.
Each game of the season was reviewed, with highlights and votes being announced. Applause was particularly raucous when votes were distributed to the newer members of the team such as Robert the Bruce and PJ.
The ‘smaller’ awards were presented in between rounds, with Smithers presenting his Champagne Moment to himself, The Egg presenting the Bravery Award to The Rev and Thug P’s best heckle award going to The Rage.
The highlight of the evening, though, was the presentation of The Quokkas Best & Fairest Award, which deservedly went to Dac ‘The Attack’ Nguyen for his amazing season.
Congratulations to The Attack for a destructive year, as well as all the winners and Quokkas, here’s looking forward to a great season in 2008!
