Surrey, BC - It was the perfect ending for a very successful year!  The inaugural awards banquet of the throwing club, Ultra Throw was a huge success.  Members of the two year old club, along with guests, meet officials and sponsors gathered at Ricky's All Day Grill in Surrey on November 4, 2017 to enjoy a buffet dinner, camaraderie, and a brief presentation of awards and honours. 

After the feast, Ultra’s newest hardware became the center of attention.  Thanks to a sponsorship from Harnek Toor (member), Gurinder Toor (Alpha House Mortgage Corporation) and Alan Utting (AK Designer Home Improvements Ltd.), there were three perpetual trophies to hand out.  

Sponsor of the Year was awarded to Gurinder Toor from Alpha House Mortgage Corporation and received in his absence by his uncle Harnek Toor.  Presenting was Carolyn McKinley and Dave McDonald (Photo: Owen Wong)

Taking home two of the new trophies, was BC Masters athlete, Rose Hare. Rose won the Challenge Trophy’ (aggregate throws pentathlon point total for Ultra Throw Festivals (#1 - #3) and the ‘Ultra Cup’ (single highest throws pentathlon points scored in Ultra Throw Festivals (#1 – 3).  

The Ultra ‘Ambassador of the Year’ went to Harnek Toor for his extraordinary contributions of displaying all the positive qualities in character, integrity and deeds towards the promotion of Ultra Throw and the throwing community.  

In addition to the three perpetual trophies, a ‘Sponsor of the Year’ plaque was presented to Gurinder Toor from Alpha House Mortgage Corporation for his generous donations this year and last.  

The complete list of performances and awards can be found HERE.  

After the awards presentations, conversations revolved on reminiscing about the year’s past accomplishments, new friendships were made and common interests were shared.  The perfect end to an enjoyable evening.
