Our 2014 Awards Banquet was held on January 18th. The banquet celebrates the successes of the previous year and jump starts our current year. This year, we had a new location for the event. Sybergs on Dorsett proved to be a very good choice for this special event. The room was much larger with a better DVD set-up and a much lower cost than our previous location. The buffet was great and made the change worthwhile.

Our special guest that night was Charlie Foster of Dave Sinclair Ford. We were also able to bring in a new member, Josh Johnson who was sponsored by Gwen Simms.

After the dinner, the evening started with the year in review, marking the highlights of 2013. Afterwards, the 2013 board of directors were thanked for their work and also our appointed volunteers for their contributions, This included Cindy Ahrens for her work as our secretary, to Sharon Apollo, Ken Farrar and Bill and Barb Giese for their work on our car show concessions, to Jim Biermann and his show committee for their hard work on our car show and to Bill and Barb Giese and Bob Layton for their work on our newsletter.

Our newly elected board members include first time board members, Paula Goodrich and Rich Sutorius along with veterans that include Syl Biermann, Jack Greiwe and Dan Kelly. They assumed their duties on January 1st. We thank Gwen Simms and Gary Burch for volunteering to run for the board.

The winner of the Neal Ketchum Memorial Award was Bart McNail. Bart has been a Points winner every year since he has been a member, excluding the years that he was on the board of directors and was ineligible. This was Bart’s 2nd, 1st place finish in a row.

A couple of special “awards” were given to Jack Greiwe and Bob Layton. The awards were of the hard luck variety as both suffered serious damage to their Blue Oval rides. Very nice touch.

The evening ended with the drawing for attendance prizes, our 50-50 winners and our grand attendance prize.

Special thanks go out to Syl Biermann for doing his outstanding job as MC of our event. He is truly the “Voice of Fords Unlimited”. Also thanks to our new board of directors for their great work on this outstanding evening.
