Jim Laurie Award
This lovely Trophy is awarded annually to a Centre member who has given their time and enthusiasm to the sport, but is not a regular rider. This award is for the back room boys or girls who do the hard work, but get little acknowledgement.

So if you think that someone who regularly runs or helps out at ACU South Midland events, or turns up to observe or marshal without having their arm twisted, give them a nomination. We all appreciate what they do, so this is our way of saying 'thank you!

Nominations are required in December each year.
