BoTH Gadabout Trophy - A Brief History...

Originally, fairly meticulous records were kept of who went to what events and who drove their
British car. At the end of the season, these records were tabulated and the person with the
"highest score" got the trophy. After a few years, the records kept slacking off and the trophy
was given to an individual (or couple) who had made significant contributions to the club over the
course of the year. There used to be some rules associated with the trophy, one being that current
officers were not eligible and that no one could get it twice in a decade. In addition, the "winner"
of the Gadabout was encouraged to carry the award to events and meetings while it was in their care.
The penalty for not bringing it was that you owed a round of drinks!

After a 2 year hiatus, the Brits of the Hudson felt it was time to dust off the "Gadabout Trophy" and, at the annual club picnic held on Sunday, September 25th, 2022, it was presented to George Atkinson. George is now the longest tenured member of the Brits of the Hudson having been a member almost since the inception of the club in 1992. While we don't get to see George's Triumph TR7 often, he is a regular attendee at our monthly meetings and our annual events such as the picnic and the Holiday Party. Congratulations George!
