The 110th annual Blues Awards has come to an end, and we look back on a great night where some of our brightest athletes and clubs were celebrated in front of the biggest Blues audience ever.

With just over 240 in attendance, the crowd were entertained by fantastic acts, including the second edition of 'The Year in Song' performed by AU Football Club and UofA student, Toby Maughan.

Michelle Wilson, the incoming General Manager, was introduced to the crowd in the opening stanza, and the Vice-Chancellor was warmly welcomed to his first Blues.

The night closed with the last official address from retiring General Manager, Mike Daws, in his usual humorous way.

With over 80 awards awarded for the night, it was a great way to showcase what each club has to offer.
