The Ottawa Chapter Awards dinner was late this year to avoid conflicts with the ski season. Not late enough. Skiing is excellent and cycling is freezing.
None the less, 17 people, a large group for the Ottawa Chapter, attended the social dinner March 8 at the Fox and Feather pub.
Three trophies for 2014 achievements were awarded to Ottawa members. The half wheel, the flèche team and organizer of the year.
Martin Lacelle received the half wheel in acknowledgement of how he pushes the pace. Way to go Martin!
Martin was also a force on the winning Flèche team. In the photo, Vytas on the right, presents the trophy to Luc Fortin, Mark Scott and Martin Lacelle. Christian Belaire was the fourth team member but did not make it out to the social.
Vytas accepted the Organizer of the Year award and graciously acknowledged the group effort that goes into organizing, in particular his wife Colleen’s efforts that keep us going.
We had a great evening making plans for 2015 and PBP and hoping that the snow will start to melt.
