The club is looking for nominations for a number of different awards:
Volunteer of the year
Rookie of the year (m/f)
Most Improved (m/f)
Spirit of DC Tri
Club member of the year
Veteran athlete of the year (m/f)
If you would like to nominate someone for one of these categories please do so on this forum or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The nominees will be included on the ballot with the board elections and the winners will be announced at the annual meeting. Please submit all nominations by November 16th.
I'd like to propose a new category - Most Entertaining Blogger of the Year -
I nominate Tuan. He makes a boring day at work wildly entertaining.
Looking for some more serious nominations...Anyone
All seriousness. I think the Board should get an award. For a very successful season, as well as the changes they got rolling for next year. My hats off to you all, and I will read about all the new stuff rolling from abroad.
The board has done a great job this year (I exclude myself from that satement) however there are no nominations from club members right now and the board can't nominate itself for awards :-)
The plan is to have the nominees on the ballot so the club can vote on who they want to win...I will say you have been nominated for one of the awards Mark.
WOW!!! I got nominated for something. Must be THE ONLY TRIATHLETE THAT CAN'T RIDE THE RIDES AT DISNEY AWARD.....lol
Ed Moser for Veteran athlete of the year
Mark Zaragoza for Spirit of DC Tri
Sandy Chiang for Volunteer of the year
I hoped that all those who are nominating or who have nominated someone make their nominations public. There are a lot of wonderful people in the club and whether they win the award or not ... need to be commended and recognized in public as often as possible. Not everyone of us knows the working of all of the wonderful people that make the DCTri wheel turn. We should out them whenever possible.
I would like to add Karen Willard as a nomination for Volunteer of the year!
Hmm, I second Mark Z's nomination for Spirit of DC award. But I also want to recognize Tuan's contributions and accomplishments this year, so I'll nominate him for this category too. And since I'm not really sure what the distinctions are between Spirit of DC and Club Member of the Year, I'll also throw both of their names in for that award. ;)
I second Tuan's nominations For Club Member of the year and Spirit of DC Tri. He has brought royalty to our front door. And he has done it with a style copied by no one.
ok I have a lot of nominees for everything except most improved male. All I have is 1 person so somebody toss me some names.
Spirit of DC Tri co-nominees:
Angela Dilks & Julie Kennedy
For being equally inspirational iron-women who introduced me to Hains Point and even came to my rescue when in need of a last minute halloween costume!
