Hello from KMGC HQ!
The weekend of the 8th & 9th November sees the traditional KMGC season ending double header of the Kent Invitational Tournament (KIT) final and the Kent Open taking place at the Lost Island Encounter in Sidcup. Details of both these events can be found on our website and this forum and everyone is of course welcome - but that's not the reason for this post.
Once again this year will see the now annual awarding of the VTK SHIELD
to one of the club during this weekend. The VTK Shield was introduced in 2012 to recognise the KMGC Member of the Year. We are looking for the members of the club that have contributed the most to advance the club - this could be in a number of areas but ultimately we are looking for someone that exemplifies what the KMGC is all about.
And for all members of the KMGC (along with our four recent departees), this is where you have your say.
Each one of you can nominate current members of the club for this award - all you need to do is PM me or email via firstname.lastname@example.org with your top 3 (in 1,2,3 order) along with any reason why the person(s) nominated should receive the award for 2014. There votes will be counted up (3 points for 1st place, 2 for 2nd, 1 for 3rd).
All nominations must be received by Sunday evening (2nd November) at the latest to enable us to work out who's won and to get the shield engraved in time for the following weekends festivities and the presentation.
Last year I had the honour of presenting the award to Marion.
Neither of the Homers are eligible for your votes this year and I'm sure Marion will take great pride in awarding the shield at the Kent Open to the worthy recipient for 2014.
This is a great part of our club season ending celebrations along with our KIT and KO events.
Thanks for your input and of course, as always...
