Some of us like competition.  It gives us a fast reward, gets the juices flowing, and acknowledges good work being done.  Others are more contemplative, knowing that they have done outstanding work, but do not need the hoopla of competition to reward them.  We honor and admire both.

The CGC is proud of its awards.  We salute all who make them achievable.  We are all volunteers, and the dedication, time and effort that goes into achieving awards is only a reflection of how much we care!
