2006 GWTC Annual Awards


By David Yon


GWTC brought the New Year in with a grand 30K and closed out 2006 with the Annual Awards Ceremony Saturday, Jan. 13, at the American Legion Hall. A good sized crowd watched master of ceremonies Bill McGuire guide the night as the 2006 Annual Award winners and Grand Prix winners were announced. The goal is to keep the annual award winners in the dark until mid way through the introduction and it seemed like, for the most part, the goal was accomplished. But now that they all know, here is the list of Annual Award winners with links to the written presentations as they arrive.
