SSDC Awards page

Post by vampicker » Tue Feb 18, 2020 6:55 pm

Can we get a page set up so we can keep a record of the SSDC's past awards? I'm envisioning something very similar to the Registry Awards page. Once it's up, I'd be happy to maintain it, but I need help at the onset. Not just getting the page set up but recalling all of the past awardees along with what award and when they were recognized. Many of you frequent this site, so if you'd be so kind, please reply to this thread with the award you received and what year is on your plaque.
We would need the page to include
VAM Master
Terry Armstrong Memorial
Mallis Book of the Year
Mallis Article of the Year
VAM of the Year
Presidential Recognition

Not every award was awarded every year, but it's easy enough to edit out of an existing table. These awards were all well deserved and it borders on the criminal to allow them to be forgotten

Past awardees are Leroy Van Allen, Jeff Oxman,Michael Fey, Logan McKechnie, Larry Briggs, Lloyd Gabbert., Mike Faraone Herb Zepke, John Baumgart, Ash Harrison, Brian Raines, and Dr David Close. Feel like I'm leaving a couple of people out, but the award is given to an individual with a body of work over time that is comparable to these gentlemen.

How could I forget Bill Fivaz, and I think we also recognized FX Klaes

I can't remember if we also awarded it to A George Mallis or just named the literary awards in his honor.

Would be nice if we can track down photos or video frame grabs for the winners of the award where they exist. I think we have a lot of them going pretty far back, where the winner was present of course.

We considered it at the time we awarded it to Pete Bishal, but decided to just name the literary award for him. I don't think he had any descendants that could receive the award, either.

I got a Mallis and Armstrong award a ways back. I am out of town so can't look at the dates. If Messy can't find them, I will report back when I get home.

I am still waiting for the VAM of the Year Award for the 1903-O VAM-22 from 2019. Still waiting, still waiting, still waiting..............................................................................................................

Oh well. :shock:

Nope those are the registry awards. I'm looking for something similar for the main SSDC awards like the VAM Master and Terry Armstrong service awards. It would have similar formatting. I lack the skill to set it up myself, but once it exists I'd be happy to maintain it, unless it requires some more tech savvy tweaks

JR !!!!!!! these are some great Vammers who made Morgan Error (vam collecting) what it is
today. Great idea to have these folks remembered onsite, as newer or younger members
like Chris can view and read the history involved, of their sport.

Thanks a buch for the post,from a old timer Collector

I added a page "SSDC Awards" that is reachable from the navigation bar.
