The Burows Award

 

 

PPRC awards the BOB BUROWS AWARD

IN RECOGNITION OF OUTSTANDING PARTICIPATION AND INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT IN RADIO CONTROL ACTIVITIES

 

This club was formed in the late 50s.  One of the nine original founding members was the owner of the only local hobby shop, Bob Burows.  He ran Musick Drugs at the corner of Fontanero and Weber. He had a little 6 x 6 space behind one of the counters where he kept kits and other modeling supplies. He was one of the founding members and was also one of the spark plugs that kept the club going.  In 1974, Ron Timroth, also one of the original nine, came up with the idea of an annual award given to the individual who did the most for the club in that calendar year, and they named it after Bob.

The rules for the award are simple. You can win only once. The previous winners choose the current winner by going through the entire club roster and gradually winnowing it down to just one person that all the voting previous winners can agree on. The winner gets to keep the large trophy for a year and the little individual plaque forever. At the end of the year, the current award winner hosts the meeting at which the next winner is chosen.
