So, with me believing that the Mod’s award is still going ahead, I would like to say just this — without giving the winner’s name at this point until John makes the announcement for that particular category.
It was a difficult decision deciding who should receive the Moderator’s award simply because there were so many fantastic entries. As you all know, the Moderator’s award is given annually to the person who I feel has shown some really good progress in their fiddle playing over the time that they have been a member here at BGD. Choosing who should receive the Mod’s award was just so darn difficult, because there were two members whom I had in mind, and it was a very close call. However, sadly, there is only one award.
The Moderator’s award for the 2019 goes to …
Congratulations …. I hope this award encourages you to develop your fiddle skills further.
