Sharing his congratulations to the club, Secretary of Sport and Youth Affairs, Assemblyman Jomo Pitt said, “Twenty (20) years is the mark of something good, it shows that the entity can stand the test of time”. He however added that, “Many of our Tobago athletes have been given the opportunity to receive sport scholarships and study abroad. Regrettably, some may not return home or give back their expertise”. Pitt explained, “We need more people to take up their moral obligation and give back. If we all hold hands we will get higher and further in our efforts of sport development”. He concluded that, “Amidst the challenges, our athletes continue to strive”.

In addressing the awardees, President of the National Association of Athletics Administration of T&T, Mr Ephraim Serrette also congratulated the club on hosting 20 years of the Falcon Awards.
