Recipients of the BAM Founder's Award



The Bob Patrick Founder's Award was instituted in 1992. It is a traveling award that is awarded annually to one member. The award recognizes individuals who have made a significant contribution of time and talent to further BAM's goals. The recipient is charged with the duty of selecting the next recipient and presenting it the next year. The award is a brass anvil with the names of the recipients engraved on the anvil.

The first award was presented to Jerry Hoffmann at the July 1992 meeting at Vernon Fisher's shop at the Lake of the Ozarks. Thereafter it was to be presented each year at the annual conference.
