THE 'OTHER' AWARDS
It is always tempting to have Alan Dixon’s name permanently engraved on this award as he is almost always on hand when a boat needs rescuing, many members still have boats on mooring thanks to his efforts. However, this year the award goes jointly to two members who bypassed Alan and rescued their own boats, perhaps in the hope that nobody would notice! David Hawes and Digby Morrison.
... and last but by no means least;
Darling Rock Trophy.
Awarded by Freddie Bungard to Richard Crisp for PROVIDING THE AUDIENCE WITH A PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATION OF THE DANGERS OF NOT CONCENTRATING ON THE CRITICAL TASK OF HELMING YOUR CRAFT IN SHALLOW WATERS.
