The following Goodwill Message, was received from David Carry, a former Winner of Aberdeen Sports Council Awards, and an Inductee of the Aberdeen Sporting Hall of Fame –

As the only voluntary sports body in Scotland the Aberdeen Sports Council does an incredible job of recognising the achievements of athletes of all sports in and around the Aberdeen area. Each year the nomination list seems to be of higher  and higher standard and this year is no exception.   The number of athletes in the Aberdeen area competing at Scottish, British, European, Commonwealth, World and Olympic level is outstanding.  This can only be achieved when combined with world class support and facilities. Facilities such as this curling centre has contributed towards Team Muirhead to become World Champions, the Aberdeen Sports Village has seen dramatic increases of sports participation and the new 50m pool should see a similar increase in participation and performance.   All with the backdrop of a post 2012 bounce and pre Commonwealth buzz, these are exciting times and we are hugely fortunate to be involved in sport.
Make the most of it, pursue your ambitions and make it happen.

– Best wishes David
