BCYC -- Weld Award 2001 -- Chris Foster

The Fourteenth Annual

Sailboat

Over the years the Weld award
has been given for the "swell-derly"
Acts of those who encourage our programs,
Be they young, middle-aged, or elderly.

Never before has the award committee
Ever considered - or even seen
Such an enthusiastic stalwart
Whose age is definitely pre-teen.

The year this lad was able to pull
In shallow water -- his finest hour --
The Committee Boat which lost its "horse".
Who cares? We now had "boy power".

He would help the beginners to guide
Their unweidily prams to shore
He had good sence & seamanship, too
While cheering kids up, what's more.

Always at the right place, he set marks.
As for the anchor? He lever lost her.
For all of these reasons the Weld award
Goes unanimously to...
