Tell us about the people who make your Gorge windsurfing experience great. Winners will be announced at the first annual Beachfest on August 30th at the Event Site.

More details:

- Nominees can be anyone from anywhere- this is open to every person who windsurfs in the Gorge.
- Deadline for nominations is Monday August 25th.
- Please fill out the nomination form found at www.CGWA.net

Here are the categories that will be awarded:

Gorge Windsurfer of the Year :: Overall good spirit, friendly windsurfer, kind to his or her comrades, embodies and/or respects the Gorge lifestyle, etc.

Most epic wipeout :: You saw it and cringed. We want to know. Send us a picture, and we'll post the winner at www.CGWA.net.

Best rescue :: Does someone deserve recognition for his or her repeated rescues or general “heads up” for fellow wind enthusiasts?

Best steward of the Gorge :: This person “gets” what the Gorge is all about and respects it. It could be your friend who picks up beach litter after sailing, or somebody who is extra involved in the local community, or…

Most stoked :: Who inspires your best sessions? Who do you look to for that smile at the end of the day?

Best Dale Cook impression :: Who gets the biggest air? (Okay, almost the biggest air… we know Dale could blow him or her away any day).

Up and Comer :: Tell us about a stoked kid or an aspiring competitor.

Thanks! See you at Beachfest!

This sounds like a great idea. How about that person that pulled out the guy at Dougs? I know the person didn't make it - but I think the fact he did so much to try to help someone deserves recognition?

Thank you! I want to be nominated for "Most epic wipeout" but I'm sure Royn will win that.

About a month ago the Hood River News reported a windsurfer saved two children who had stepped off the sandbar into the current. He had them hang on to the board until others arrived. Preferring to remain anonymous, he sailed off to work on jibes when the children had been returned to their frantic parent.

The award should not be restricted to rescuing fellow sailors.

I think Garth Pond gets some of the highest jumps next to Dale Cook and should be considered. Scott should definitely get the rescue award for his amazing efforts to save Daiman at Dougs. And Jim Oaks is definitely a consideration for something.
