The Member of the Year award was created in memory of Jeff Molloy, a young member of the club whose life ended too soon. Jeff's enthusiasm for the hobby was strong and he was always fun to have around a meeting or the flying field, as you never knew what he would say or do next. To honour Jeff's memory, the club decided to create the memorial trophy and award it each year to the person who contributed most to the club and local modeling environment that year. It's not about who has the nicest plane or can fly the fastest or highest. It's about acknowledging personal commitment to improve the hobby for all of us in some way.

 

2017

This year's Member of the Year is Robert Dicks. Robert was club president the past 2 years and that placed him in the thick of most everything the club was involved with the past year. However, his cooking skills at the fun flies most likely contributed most to his earning this award. Robert stepped down as president at the end of 2017 to devote more time to travel and family. Congratulations Robert.
