RETIREMENT OF SOME GCA TROPHIES.

The GCA recently retired three trophies, and was lucky enough to receive generous sponsorship from three different families for new trophies. The question the committee had, was what to do with the old ones, as we have no club rooms for them. We wanted them to mean something and not just hidden away under a house somewhere.  So, it was decided and voted on that the three trophies would be given back to three valuable members of the GCA.

At this year’s GCA presentation night the three retiring trophies were donated to some special Gippsland Campdrafting icons.

The Under 13 Junior trophy started in 1983, and was donated by the Sutton Family. The GCA committee decided to give the trophy back to Mr Peter and Mrs Phyllis Sutton. Phyllis was the GCA Secretary for many years and her family were regular competitors in the early years of the association. Phyllis gave many hours running all the events for the campdrafting calendar as well as the administrative work for the association.  Phyllis is a Life Member of the GCA.  The new GCA trophy was donated by Cheryl & Erick Joosten.

The Novice Rider trophy was started in 1983 and was donated by Ken and Alison Boulton. After some discussion the GCA committee and Ken and Alison decided to hand the trophy to Mr Rick Morgan. Rick was present at the first GCA meeting back in 1973 and has been an active member ever since.   Rick has won the Novice rider of the year twice in the Seasons 2000/01 and 2003/04.  The new trophy was donated by the Connely Family.

The Lady Rider trophy began in 1977 and was donated by the Bairnsdale Grain Store. The GCA committee decided to hand this trophy back to Mrs Joanne Boddy.  Joanne has won the title 6 times, in the seasons 87/88, 89/90, 91/92, 92/93, 95/96 and 96/97.  Joanne was a fierce competitor and regularly placed in open events before she was forced to retire after being diagnosed with MS.  The new trophy was donated by Michael and Vicki Hiscock.
