6th December 2017 and we headed for the Builders Conference Live Awards 2017 at the fabulous Savoy Hotel in London. And what an afternoon it was! A full house enjoyed a wonderful meal and also great entertainment presented by the one and only Gerald Ratner who told us his wonderful, if a little bit scary, story. And then it was on to the Awards. Congratulations to all the winners!
Two weeks ago, Kevin Cadle, one of British Basketball's greatest coaches was laid to rest. Back in September of 1998 two colleagues, Deno Tofalos (now deceased), Chris Tofalos and me Mike Shaft published the magazine SHOOTtheHOOP. In that first issue we paid a full tribute to the man himself. It took some time but I finally managed to track down that copy of the magazine. This is the final part of that article. Some of the photos are from that original article but others are from more recent times.
On the 13th of July 2017 all roads led to the Chesford Grange Hotel, Warwickshire for the TPAS National Finals 2017. This very special night would see our special 10th Anniversary celebrations. It has been my great pleasure to host every TPAS Awards Ceremony over the past 10 years. I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to everyone who has worked over the past decade to ensure the success of this wonderful event.
