YEAR-END PARTICIPATION AWARDS
1983 to present

At the GSCA Annual Meeting each spring since 1983, a Participation Award has been presented to the Outing participant(s) who attended the most club-sponsored activities for the previous year.

Initially, the names of the Award recipients were engraved on a plaque, and the recipient held it for a year. Then the plaque would be passed on at the next Annual Meeting to the next recipient, sometimes to be shared among multiple winners.

Since 2015, when the plaque space was filled, the Year-end Award recipients have been listed here in honor of their achievements.

 

See GSCA's History Gallery for more about the illustrious early years of Granite State Carriage.
