Forum Awards 2019

Unread post by Jazil »

This year It has been decided not to have the Forum Awards competition.

There is a tremendous amount of work put into getting nominations by the Forum Award Committee but over the past four years support from forum members has dwindled and the number of votes decreased dramatically each year.

Maybe next year we can run them again.

Thanks to all those who have, in the past, put so much time, effort and work into running this competition.
Don't forget to PM any Mod your Kudu nominations for the month.

If you want to list your Park Dates in the YR Thread then please PM me.

I know it was not an easy decision and just hope that participation will again increase over time.

I personally wish to thank you for all the hard work that you have done in the past to ensure that the awards could take place Jazil :gflower: .

Social media and the time spent on it has lured many a forumite away sadly.
