The event to celebrate the SLSA’s first season of 2013 will be held on July 20, 2013 at The Hotel del Coronado at San Diego at 11 am SLT (next door to Solace Dreams). Many awards will be given out including some for which the SLSA is looking for nominations.
The SLSA Hall of Fame – “…nominations are sought from the SL Surfing community for potential inductees to the hall for contributions to SL surfing which are pivotal and of great value to the entire surfing community over a prolonged number of years.” To nominate some for the Hall of Fame, go to the Forum thread here. Nominations close tonight, July 9th, at midnight SLT.
The Sportsperson Award – “The Sportsperson award recognizes the person that you feel displayed exemplary sportsmanship, displaying grace in victory or defeat, providing encouragement within and outside their own team, or making a sacrifice to assist another to the detriment of their own place. They are this season’s ‘good sport’.” Nominate your choice on the Forum thread here. Nominations close on July 13th.
The Angel Award – “The Angel award is designed to recognize the person (male or female) that helped make this season a success, by contributing their time, effort, or simply their encouragement of surfers and staff, cheerfully and without seeking any recognition for themselves. They are the person that helped you and many others to have a fun season.” To submit your choice for the Angel Award, visit the forum thread here. Nominations close on July 13th.
In addition, they are looking for some fun “novelty” awards. Make you suggestions on this thread in the Forum.
