End of Year Perpetual Awards
Arcadia holds its Annual General Meeting at the end of every year in combination with its Awards Presentation Evening. The main purpose of the presentation night is to give out Perpetual and individual trophies earned by riders during the year. These trophies and older awards are displayed in
the trophy cabinet at the grounds. Many awards have been generously donated by dedicated present, past and founding members and are kept as a memorial to the clubs traditions and history. All past and present achievements are also recorded on the web site and kept on file.
