The memory of Jimmy Welsh lives on with Jimmy Welsh Trophy, and it's that time of year for team owners to nominate one of their crew to receive this honor.
Jimmy was dedicated to the sport, his team and his friends. OPA continues to honor a team member that displayed similar qualities to Jimmy throughout the past season.
It's up to you, as a team owner to tell us who and why this honor should be bestowed upon you nomination. So please take a few minutes and write a brief summary about your most dedicated team member and what they did during this past year to deserve this award. Ballots will be generated and handed out at the the Annual Meeting and the winner announced at the Awards Ceremony.
Please submit only one member of your team ... someone that your team just couldn't live without.
You may also submit a crew member from another team that helped you throughout the year. Submit your story to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31st. Be sure to include - your name - team name and hull racing number - Full name (and nickname) of candidate and the position they hold on your team.
