The room was decked out in club colours, with images from the season playing on the big screens, and an array of other baseball themed decorations, all organised by Lou and Laura who had done a fabulous job turning this into an event to remember. There were even hand made cakes and biscuits (thanks Lou and Nikki), that followed the hot buffet.phill and chris_5756
