NMC Awards Night

Date / Time
Date(s) - 1 Feb 2020 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

We have booked the Valle D’Oro Italian Restaurant in Newbury for our annual Oscar Award Evening. It has good quality food and is both friendly and welcoming, plus there is a really good selection of dishes to choose from.

After the meal we will have our traditional awards. During the Award evening we present awards and prizes for any amusing/ interesting things that have happened during the previous year’s trips (2019). In order for this to happen I really need to receive nominations from members and if possible any details which I can use on the evening.

Here is a list of previous awards but if you have any other ideas they are most welcome:

  1. Reach for the Stars – highest altitude reached by a club member during the year, not necessarily on a club trip
  2. Gordon Ramsay – for culinary excellence
  3. No Fixed Abode – person(s) attending the most trips in the year
  4. Boy Scout/Girl Guide – for being prepared in the hills & saving the day through gear, gadgets or knowledge
  5. Golden Underpants – for a scary/dumb incident
  6. Saint Bernard – for saving the day not through gear & gadgets
  7. ‘Wish you were here’ – best trip (you can nominate 1st, 2nd, and 3rd)
  8. 5 Star Award – best accommodation
  9. Mountain Achievement – for someone who has made personal progress
