Most Improved Climbers: Simon Kirby and Alison Cann.
Best Trip: Dan Unwin, for the Pyrenees (again).
Girl Guide Award: Bob Hotchkis, for fixing Claire’s boots in the Pyrenees using tape and cable ties.
Most Trips Award (for most meets attended during the year): Alan Tinkler (despite strong competition from Trudi Wellings, who only joined the Club in February).
Gordon Golden Underpants Ramsay Award (combining the two this year): Bruce Wilson, for an attempt at head-boiling during the Pico Aneto ascent in the Pyrenees.
New Year’s Honours Award: (Dame) Maggie Russell, for many years of loyal service (and entertainment).
