Awards night for our Bald Eagles

AUSSIE RULES: The Whitsunday Bald Eagles have wrapped-up their 2015 season, hosting their presentation night at the Reef Gateway on Saturday.

Lenny Morris was named a deserving Baldie of the Year, according to club president Jack Lumby.

"Lenny does great work on and off the field and carried the Baldie spirit for 2015," he explained. "He represented the club and Queensland at the Bali AFL nines carnival. He excelled on the ground and led from the front for the entire season."

Steve McGregor also took home a prize on the night, claiming the president's award for his contributions made to the club. "He's always there, always helpful and with a smile on his face," Lumby said. Kylie Allen's contribution to the club was also recognised with Lumby praising her "creative ability".

Ms Allen designed the club's clothes, banners, posters, flyers and was "always on call".

"Nothing was ever too much for her," Lumby added.

The season might be over but the Baldies will be at the Reef Gateway on Sunday giving away Christmas hams and puddings, as a means of giving back to the community.

The Bald Eagles will resume training at the Cannonvale State School on January 7 from 5.30pm
