For over 27 years Terry has been dedicated to making the Sunnyland Lake Dora event making it one of the most important events of the year for the classic boating community. Actually becoming the official opening of the season.
I rode around with Terry this year for a short bit, and holy crap, this poor guy cant travel 5 ft without some sort of question. And he handles it all like they are the only ones asking. WOW. I am in awwwwww. Makes me feel like a lazy blob. That is leadership, we all would walk through a burning pile of Mahogany for him.
The award was handed out and announced at the Saturday Night event, and the crowd went nuts with a huge standing ovation. Terry holding back tears and just shocked. Terry is a very humble guy, and inspires us all to do our best for all. Thank you Terry for that. Your leadership has shaped the the way we all work together. Below is some official language from the chapter on how the award will be done.
The annual Terry Fiest award will serve to recognize the dedication, leadership, and vision shown by the various individual Chapter members serving as show chairpersons, or Judges or simply volunteers who have demonstrated outstanding sustained performance. For so many Chapters, their annual show is their premier event, and as such, the economic engine of those Chapters.
Terry today we all honor your dedication, passion and leadership with a world wide standing ovation. Here is to you and Bobbi. THANKYOU!
