First State HOG of the Year Award


I debated whether or not to write this post because I don’t want to come off like I’m toot’n my own horn. But if I don’t write about this then it diminished the importance of the award… so here goes!

I was awarded with the prestigious 2nd annual HOG of the Year award by First State HOG for 2008 at our year end holiday party last weekend! I have not won many awards or trophies in my life so this is a proud moment for me, especially because it is related to something I am so passionate about. Our members vote during our October and November general meetings by secret ballot for the member who most represents what being a HOG member is about. I love that my fellow FSH HOG members recognize the effort I put into being a HOG officer and Road Captain. I hope that I inspire new members and renew the enthusiasm of our long time members. I don’t have children so it’s not like I’m going to win the Iron Dad award anytime soon; so this will be my crowning achievement!

The award itself is an awesome copper statue of a soaring eagle with outstretched talons and wings. The detail, especially in the feathers, is incredible. The statue stands 17.5″ tall and has a wingspan of 17.5″

I love it and thank every one of my HOG brothers and sisters. This award means a lot to me. I hope to serve you well as our new FSH Director for 2009.
