The 2007 Annual Dinner and Prize Presentation was great success thanks to Peter, Bert and Malcolm for their organising skills.
Steve Doherty opened up the evening with his usual wit and banter, which, in his unique style had the audience captivated, (i.e. they couldn't’t escape!!).
He introduced the respected special guests, Mr. & Mrs Bob Williams and Mr. & Mrs Paul Olsen. The prizes were presented by Paul Olsen after first entertaining us with his own brand of funnies and anecdotes, which went down very well with the good humoured audience.
The Majority of the prizes went to this year’s Club Champion, Arthur Winstanley, who had dominated all distances in the time trial and hill climb events. He also won his age category in the national 100 mile time trial.
Mr Terry Phillips also enjoyed a successful season and his prizes were collected on his behalf by Mr. George Butterworth.
Ricky Coppell won the memorial trophy for the many hundreds of miles covered during his Audax rides.
The evening continued with a Disco and Cabaret by Chris Lloyd and some impromptu Spanish Salsa lessons by Malcolm and a ballroom dancing demonstration delightfully performed by John and Sheila. Photo Album

105 members and friends attended the 86th Anniversary Dinner and Prize Presentation Of the Phoenix C.C. (Aintree) at the Huyton Suites, Huyton on Saturday 26th November.
Guest speaker on the evening was Andy (Wilko) Wilkinson, famous for holding the Lands End to John-O-Groats record on a road bike and also later on a recumbent, which still stands today. J.(Kit )Carson was also attending as an invited guest, much appreciated for his services to the racing fraternity.
Our vocal entertainer, Alan Street entertained us with his talented singing and comedy act and the night was held together by our impromptu Master of Ceremonies, Steve Doherty, capturing the essence of the evening with his unique light hearted approach to life, cycling and everything!!.
Our Club Champion, Arthur Winstanley thanked everybody on behalf of the prizewinners and finished with a rhyming verse thanking the club peleton and others for the help and encouragement he received during the season.

The Dinner and Prize Presentation was enjoyed by all who attended and the hard won prizes were treasured by their owners. Once again the beer run freely but not free and the photographer caught most of the evening's action on a
handy digital camera. Keith Linge was the owner and here
are the results of his efforts. Thanks for the photos Keith.

Our 91st Dinner and Prize Presentation was held on the 20th November 2010 at the Huyton Suite and was attended by 55 members and guests.
Bernie James, a ‘true Gent’ who recently passed away, was remembered in a eulogy by Sam. Bernie’s friendship and contribution to the club will be missed and remembered by everybody who knew him.
Brian Robinson accompanied by Martin Bolt were our invited guests along with Kit and Joan Carson.
Before presenting the trophies to the prize winners, Brian or “Robbo” as he is known, chatted briefly giving a light hearted slant on his racing career and hinted that his racing Genes have been passed on to his family..
Fame and respect were honoured tonight as Stan Brittain and “Robbo” were asked for their autographs by an ardent admirer, although somewhat apprehensive in daring to ask for the autographs, later Mike seemed to have no fear of taking to the dance floor, see photos.
An excellent evening was enjoyed by all.

Thanks to Peter and Bert for organising the 2008, 89th Annual Dinner and Prize Presentation, which was a less formal and more sociable occasion than previous years in part due to the shorter but entertaining after dinner speeches.
Mr. Dave Massen did an admiral job of welcoming our special guests, Mr. & Mrs Geoff Dutton and Mr. & Mrs Keith Boardman. Dave gave us a mini history of Geoff's achievements over the years and brief synopsis of Keith's career.
Before Geoff presented the prizes he spoke with enthusiasm and enlightened us all with some amusing tales from his earlier cycling exploits.
Arthur Winstanley won most of the awards and in his absence John Leach accepted them on his behalf. The remaining prizes were won by Keith Williams and Steve Doherty.
Later on the Disco got into its rhythm and the dancing girls took centre stage.
During this time, Keith Boardman was happily chatting to the many club members that took the opportunity to reminisce about old times or past encounters.
I'm sure everybody enjoyed the evening, which seemed to pass all too quickly. Next year the Phoenix C.C. celebrated its 90th year and a very special occasion is already in the planning stages. We hope to see everybody here again in 2009.

Our 90th Dinner and Prize Presentation was on the 14th November 2009 at the HUYTON SUITE, Civic Way, Huyton.
Mr. Les West presented the prizes and spoke briefly about his racing experiences, and some surprising revelations from the pro-race scene from the 60's era.
The evening went very smoothly and was enjoyed by all, mainly due to the efforts of the dinner committee, Mr. Pete Tyas and Mr. Bert O'Connor.
