The White Horse, Soho once again played host on Friday to this year's much anticipated Pimlico Strollers AGM. A quorum of twelve Strollers gathered round to review the season's averages — hotly disputed as always — the dispensing of awards (details below) and to heartily herald, in fine voice, the Bucket Of Justice which after several rounds of voting returned Big Gav after 8 years for a third term as club captain. Gav is delighted to be joined by none other than Viral Doshi who was elected as vice skipper for the season.
Earlier in the evening 2015 skipper Dave Couldrey (pictured right) signed off in fine 'style' by undressing to reveal the now infamous boob tube stolen from the ladies of Abyssinia which was then deservedly handed to Tim Sturm as he collected the prized Stroller Of The Year accolade.
Well done to all who attended and contributed to a fine evening and, as noted by our new skipper, special thanks must go to Dave for all his fine work in securing our most successful season of the century so far. As Gav concluded, "together we can stroll on to even greater things in 2016"!
