2018 Mileage and Trip Leader Awards
March 2019
by Natalie Wiest

These are the 2018 Club award winners for paddling over 100 miles, and for leading trips. 

The criteria for counting miles is that they had to be earned on official HCC trips, which were posted 3 days in advance and available to all our members, with 3 or more paddlers, with a report sent by the trip leader to the Fleet Captain.  Note that many club members also paddle additional miles on non-club trips, so their actual annual mileage may be higher than what is represented here for HCC trips only.


100+ Mile Awards:

Fran Wilcox 110.11 Club miles
Brent Hwang 125.81 Club miles
Kent Walters 143.87 Club miles
Bruce Bodson     289.82 Club miles
David Portz 361.67 Club miles
