Year-End Participation Award Recipients

At the GSCA Annual Meeting each spring from 1983 to 2016, a Participation Award has honored 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 Annual Meeting to the next recipient, sometimes to be shared among multiple winners.

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