Amphibian of the Year

AMPHIBIAN
of the YEAR


The big national Swim-in at Celina draws near once again, and the IAOC Board
opens the nomination process for that most prestigious award of Amphibian of
the Year. For about the next two weeks, we invite all members of the IAOC to
submit nominations for Amphibian of the Year (AotY).

Later, we will have a vote, but for now, we need nominations. So, here are
the ground rules:


1.

Despite the IAOC being a fun car club, the AotY award is a serious
recognition of one individual's service to the Amphi community during the
past year.
2.

The definition of "service" is left to you; however, the ideal
candidate will have performed efforts to help the Amphi community on a broad
basis.
3.


Please provide a short rationale for your nomination; just a
sentence or two will be fine.
4.

Nominations can only be accepted from current IAOC members.
5.

Voting for the AotY will be limited to current IAOC members.
6.

The AotY award can only be presented to a current IAOC member.

Please email your nomination to me, edprice@cox.net , your IAOC Membership
Registrar. After I receive a nomination, I will create a slate of nominees
and delete your nominating email. You will not be linked in any way to your
nominee.

My Vote this year is for a long overdue member.
#362 in 2010 membership list...Ronald Trudeau, of NH.
Ron is Known for giving rides to anyone at the whim of a hat. Drop everything , get car and go, Evening in the pouring rain(Cape Cod, 2009 Hurricane Rains.)
He will go out of his way to help any Amphi in need,2 hr drives to bring stuff to others,go across country to help fetch cars with his pickup. etc.
As most know in fall of 2008 I was badly injured.Ron was here to help with work I had been working on before the accident, I sat in a wheel chair and he did all the running around to get pieces etc, Cut my winter stock of firewood.He stayed for about 3 weeks,he is coming back in a few weeks to help some more(my leg is still acting up), but this time he Really wants some work done on his car.
.. There are 100s of Storeys about Ron,, You got any.,
BTW do not get to close to him in the water, his squirt gun is murder!

I second your vote. Ron is cool. Ina

As Ed requested above, please be sure to email your candidate votes to Ed.
 
Hi Jackie. We'll have to meet. Maybe we can get together with our
Amphicars? How far north are you overthere in NY? We live in
Pemberton Boro, NJ, near Ft. Dix.

Maybe you'll be at Celina this year? What about the Raystown Swim-
In? It's not too far from NY. We always go to the Boston Swim-In too.

Send me an e-mail off the group list & we can discuss this.

But please note that replying on this list, and not directly to me, has made
your nomination public. When we have our actual election, I think that a
secret vote is best for all, so make sure your vote goes directly to me or
the IAOC website. (We will publicize voting options later.)
