Although our Club Member and Volunteer Thank You evening has been postponed, to a date to be decided, we still planning on recognising our valuable volunteers and those members who assist the Squadron in many other ways. Any Squadron member can nominate a member or non-member volunteer for recognition.

Who are we recognising?

Individual nominations of member and non-member volunteers are called for the following category awards:

  • Marine Sports Volunteer Award – The David Virgo Trophy
  • Cruising and Navigation Volunteer Award
  • Social Events Volunteer Award
  • Member Facilities Volunteer Award
  • Special Contributor Award

All Nominations for the Category Awards who are full members will also be considered for our Major Award – The Club Member of the Year.

The Club Member of the Year will be awarded for significant contribution to any aspect of the Squadron in the 2019/20 Season.  Significant contribution could include on water participation, individual contribution to a significant Squadron project or initiative, or contribution, to maintaining the Squadron’s presence in a field of excellence.

Serving Flag Officers, members of General Committee and members paid for their services in relation to the contribution will be ineligible for these awards.

We strongly encourage and invite Members and Volunteers to nominate fellow members and volunteers for any of the above award categories. 

Nominations close at 5:00pm on Friday 5 June 2020.
