John Cook - 51st Dearnley Medallist

img_2828.jpg

Congratulations to John Cook who was awarded a Dearnley Medal at the Annual General Meeting of the Ulysses Club, held at Wodonga last weekend.  Some months ago our own Ron Blomley (also a Dearnley Medallist) nominated John for the Dearnley Award and so began a collation of information regarding John's contribution to the Ulysses Club over a good number of years.

A big thank you must go to Kris Cook who not only helped in providing information, dates, etc., but who has also been on the Ulysses journey with John and has supported him, particularly during John's four years as President of our Melbourne Branch.

Melbourne Branch made the submission for the Award to the National Committee and, come the day of the AGM on 28th March 2015, all of us in attendance at the meeting were delighted to see the look of surprise on John's face when the Award was announced.

Well done John.  Your award is well deserved and we are all very pleased for you.

Thank you to all involved in my nomination

Thank you to all the people involved in nominating me and to the National Committee for making this award.

I was very happily surprised when I heard my name called out and I am chuffed, humbled and honoured to have received the Dearnley Medal.blushsurprise

The rewards which I get from my membership including friendship, camaraderie, riding enjoyment and so much more far exceed any efforts I put in.  It is a great club and I have met and befriended a lot of great people during my years with the club. 

I must comment on what a sneaky lot the Melbourne Committee members are,  I had no idea before my name was called out.

It was a bit sobering to realise how good Kris is at keeping secrets too  cheekywink
