We need a new club trophy.

Postby silverbullet » 24 Dec 2017, 10:07

In the interest of fostering general clubbiness?

You know, a syncronauts "bad luck" mantlepiece job that is returned and awarded at syncropendance each year.

I have just though of the very thing to replace the busted difflock award ;)

I will also post on the fb page.

Great idea, and hopefully it gets returned every year.

But

Intrigued!!!!
It's all the little moments in life that make it a big adventure.

I think its time for everyone to start thinking about nominations and a reasonable set of criteria for nominees.
I would say that for the inaugural award ceremony, indiscretions from past exploits will be considered on their merits (or otherwise!) but they must have occurred in - or in direct conjunction with - a T3 syncro.
After that, it will be awarded for the most deserving syncro misfortune and misery in that year, to be returned and re-presented at syncropendance in person.
