With the Ovals closed, the Tigers took to the University of Canberra for the annual Presentation Day.
It was great morning, recognising our brilliant volunteers, generous sponsors and marvellous members - our athletes.
There were award presentations for every age group with medals presented to everyone who participated as well as special Age Champion medals and Trophies to the Most Improved.
This year also featured the awarding of the inaugural House Day Championship. The Sumatrans took home the Club House Trophy from close rivals Siberians and the Bengals.
