With the annual year-end party only days away, it seemed like a good time to look back on the 2014 season and take the opportunity to thank everyone - club members, training friends, and the many sponsors - for their support and encouragement during the year. It is also, admittedly, an opportunity to brag about the season’s results. But when the team has achieved so much in a year, why not brag a little?
