President Ernie Eames

Today we honoured our dearest Ernie by awarding him the position of Club President.  We were blessed with nice weather, great company and delicious cakes!  Ernie is one of the club’s founding members who has volunteered avidly for the club in many roles (coach, committee member, treasurer, official, team manager and competition manager) since the club’s inception in 1973.  Thanks for EVERYTHING you’ve done for RSCAC over your 48 years’ service Ernie.  And thank you Val for all the hours you’ve allowed Ernie to give up for our club.
