Volunteers: Behind The Scenes Angels

July 14, 2016

IMG_1992There were many public “faces” of the 2016 World Footbike Championships and equally many private behind the scenes angels, without which the event could not have gone ahead in the way that it did. We’d like to bring those to your attention here, hopefully including everyone in some way. Arguably the most recognisable “voice” of the event was that of Mr Ken Baldwin. He generously gave his time and equipment for the whole 3 days. We also remember he gave time and equipment at our Rock of Ages Music Trivia Fundraiser back in May.

IMG_1767 President of the Australian Footbike Association Inc Bruce Cook and Secretary Lyn Cook have been tirelessly working in the background for several years to bring the event to reality. They’ve been supported by other committee members Jo Hassan, Jane Nimmo, David Bye and Judith Jardine (pictured below).

Stay tuned for thousands of photos to be uploaded to the Gallery! Thanks also to Lucky Kalaf… apologies we don’t believe we have any photos of you from the weekend even though you were there …

A FINAL THANK YOU once more to our amazing volunteers. We couldn’t have hosted the 2016 World Footbike Championships without your help.
