AMA Awards to a couple of BARF Members

So as an Official AMA Club barf has received two awards to hand out.

One for service to O/MC and one for safety.

Service was a no brainer. Enchanter gets the nod hands down.
Nobody does more behind the scenes to help this place. He truly is the Ghost in the Machine.

On the safety award there were a lot of contenders. So I nominated people in my minds eye. Here was my thought process. All of these folks are winners from my view and sincere thanks is always given.

Enchanter, Data Dan and Kazman for their work on our Lane Splitting Guidelines.

DefyInertia for his help on the VisionZeroSF deal. First guy to step up and that turned out to be something to be proud of. The SMSA Conference presentation was very cool and more on the Bone Podcast helped get the word out.

two wheel tramp, SFMCjohn and Surj for their help with that too. They were very active in the VisionZeroSF deal too after DeFyInertia and I got it started. Others helped too of course and as always thanks to you all for the help.

Heck the SFMC, CityBike and Barf ended up with links on their home page and a thanks to barf at the end of their safety video was icing on the cake.

DataDan has been a historical safety advocate on barf writing awesome pieces of work that have been shared around the Country with other safety advocates. He has a couple of barfies under his belt for that.

Kazman has done a few more things too. Stickers and shirt graphics, public reach outs at Cycle Gear events. Some vid stuff on lanesharing etc. And... has help on the newbie rides too! Another old friend that supports teh barf.

Many others have given some to our goal of increasing safety over the years as well. Part of what I value here is that has become more of a norm over the years for barf than those early cowboy days of the dump trophy and some of the more rowdy fun. Don't get me wrong I like rowdy fun as some of you know, but knowing the best and safest place to have that kind of fun is much more prevalent now.

So when I added up in my minds eye I chose Kazman.

So congrats guys. Your friendship and effort here is really appreciated.

It is easy for me to forget all the work that is put in by Budman and those that he mentioned.

Thank you!

Perhaps we can have a meet up at some local establishment so we can thank those mentioned in person?

They don't offer a leadership award..

ob1ventura

A meet up is a good idea... the regional differences of us all makes that hard though.
