Annual Awards to be initiated
Like some other sports organisations we have decided to initiate some British Go Association awards in order to encourage players and organisers. We have selected the following categories for this year:
- Player of the year
- Club of the year
- Loss of the year (of a game)
- President’s award for services to Go.
Your nominations in each category are solicited by 31st December 2014 with a citation of a maximum of 150 words supporting the nomination.
Following this there will then be a vote for Player of the Year amongst the membership to determine the winner. If there are more than three nominations in this category Council will choose three to participate in the subsequent voting.
The winner in the second and third categories will be determined by Council from the nominations received.
The President’s award may be given to someone who has given many years or service or to someone who has done something special this year. It doesn't have to be given to someone nominated, but nominations are still solicited.
Hopefully these will become annual awards, with the presentations being made at the British Open each year, normally during the Association's AGM or the Dinner (if there is one).
Suggestions as to changes to the categories or additional ones are also requested.
Members are requested to send nominations to me.
