The time has come for nominations for the Eighth Annual George Willer Award!

To nominate a forum member for the 8th Annual George Willer Award:

Factors to consider could include mentoring ability, communication skills, willingness to work with others, leadership ability, ingenuity and other positive aspects of the nominee. Submissions may be provided at any time but must be received no later than March 30, 2016 to allow your nominee to be considered for the eighth George Willer Award.

Examples for inclusion into the nomination write up could include, but not be limited to, the following:


1. "How To" demonstrations at Cubfests.
2. Video programs produced as teaching units.
3. Traditional "How To" written articles with picture illustrations.

Please submit your nominations via e-mail only to Cecil at the following e-mail address: cecildiamond896@yahoo.com.

Be sure to list not only the candidate, but also why you think that the nominee deserves to receive the award this year.

Nominations will be accepted until midnight on June 1 2017.

I know that there are many folks out there that more than meet the expectations for this prestigious award so lets see a good response.

I just want to bring this back to the top. In the next few days I will make this a global post so it will be seen across all the forums. Many of you may never have met or even heard of George. I assure you, he was a unique individual who would drop everything to help a Cub Owner, well, he would drop everything to help anybody if help was needed anywhere.

Please take time to think about members here who have helped you or others the way George would have. Keep the criteria Cecil mentioned in mind for nominating someone who you believe follows the way George would have done it.

Believe me when I say, it is an honor to be even mentioned in the same post as George. Get those nominations in now so a suitable member can be selected.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Send in your nomination for the George Willer Award. This forum is populated with people that routinely go the extra mile to help others out, much in the same spirit that George did. Spend a bit of time considering who you might nominate, then prepare and submit the nomination to Cecil.
