Default NEBF '07 Awards List

I figured that those that attended would start posting what award they won in this thread here: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=78534 , but it appears we are all still recovering from NEBF

Anyways, these awards were presented Saturday night at NEBF '07. A LOT (and I do mean A LOT) of bias and subjectivity (and silliness) went into selecting the winners for each award. Obviously many members and cars could have won multiple awards, but it was all meant to be in good fun and in every case, the award fit the car and/or the member in some way. Believe me, it was a ton of work to match up the awards with their eventual winners (much more than I ever would have expected). Tracy, Mike, and I spent a good bit of time discussing candidates, and I spent several more hours Saturday afternoon reviewing and changing things around. I even snuck around behind their backs to get some additional inside information, as well as some minor input from Bill and Don, but I was the only one that determined the final results.

All award winners recieved an award certificate except for "BEST OF NEBF", which recieved a "no-expense spared , one-of-a-kind " custom trophy (I know Don took pictures of it, but I haven't seen them posted yet. Maybe the "winner" of the Trophy could take pics and post them, if the trophy hasn't fallen apart, yet)

So, without further ado, I present The Award Winners of NEBF '07.

(Unfortunately, track day was rained out, but the awards have been left in the capable hands of the owner of Bonnevilla and I made the NEer'* promise to get together again, when the weather is nice and determine the award winners at that time.)

Thank you and Intense for providing gifts for the top awards. Intense is first class.

Also want to thank the able assistant Frank for his antics handing out the awards to the winners.

And yes Bob you ethics should be questioned on the criteria to determine the award winner.

Those are the actual SEM interior colors from a certain Gen V boosted black Bonneville, complete with SEM interior texture.

Gosh..if he only knew his colors Ya used bonne colors...lol (not necessarily 97 colors..)

Mittens, Great job on the awards ceremony, I knew your judgement and originality would make it a great success. We owe you a ton for all your hard work. And putting up with Mike and Tracy.

The Best of NEBF cost more than one might think..lol There was plenty of pain and suffering that came from the creation of that one.
