I'd like to propose Brett for the Inaugural "CLUG Eagle-Eye" award.
This had me chuckling this morning - really good fun!
[And isn't that a big chunk of our shared ethos?]

It really was quite spectacular - spotting the detail, with such speed.

The usual questions about 'awards':

 - how often?
 - who decides (being an anarchic collective, 'everyone'?)
 - what trophy?
 - special event, normal meeting, or just on-line?

Anyone got ideas for other *fun* awards??

 - best flame-bait
 - worst dressed geek
 - most pizza consumed in a sitting
 - best code or program [with a special category for Tridge  :-)]
 - longest thread
 - cutest toy or gizmo
 - Michael Still award for longest trip to a meeting
 - best and fairest website
 - ?????
