I hope you will all join me in congratulating Gary " The Wizard of Oz " in being awarded the prestigious " Golden Goat 2017 " award for his services to Platform 1 throughout 2017.

He takes on the mantle from Gormo our very first Platform1 ambassador who like Gary, served the Platform1 community in a fashion well over and beyond what could be asked of anyone.

It's great to have such dedicated members aboard with us. I'm sure their efforts are appreciated by all.

Many thanks gentlemen.

Toto your very humble flounder.

Hip hip huzzar.

G`day Folks,

It has been my honor to wear the title of " Golden Goat " for 2017 and it was rather special to be the first one. Personally, I don`t think I was doing anything over and above what I would have been doing anyway, but Toto obviously saw it differently to me and decided to bestow the award on me.

So now it is the end of my twelve months in the role and it is time to pass the baton to Gary to carry the title for the next twelve months.

Congratulations Gary on being selected to take on the role of " Golden Goat 2017 " :handshake:.

Jesus ...... Ahem ...... I mean Gormo ........ You are reducing me to tears. Pack it in. :avatar:

Although we take things a bit tongue and cheek on here, it's nice to be recognised for your efforts. Credit where credit is due. Thanks for all your valuable time in creating the regular editions of " Gormo's shed " and for your general participation and encouragement that your have given to all our members.

Without that, we wouldn't be half the forum we are. As we say on our totem " everybody welcome " and that's the environment that we try to achieve.

Thanks for fostering that.

Toto

I'm crying now ........ Sod.

G`day Folks,

Well, I don't know what to say, so with a little poetic license, I just rehashed what Gormo said... We Aussie always like to take short cuts where we can....:mutley2::mutley2:

"It will be my honor to wear the title of " Golden Goat " for 2018 and it was rather special to be the chosen one. Personally, I don`t think I was doing anything over and above what I would have been doing anyway, but Toto obviously saw it differently to me and decided to bestow the award on me.

Thank you for selecting me to take on the role of " Golden Goat 2018 "

Cheers, Gary.

Well deserved award Gary. One thing can definitely be said of the Aussie contingent, they've certainly put in the mileage this year, with UK visits by both Gormo and Gary, makes our 'few hundred miles' travel to shows look paltry by comparison!:thumbsup:

Keith.

Yes, congratulations to Gary for being an excellent ambassador for this community and the hobby as a whole, as well as being an excellent modeller and dare I say mentor in the quality of the advice given out to people.
Cheers
Tony
