Norman Miller. Special thanks goes to those that nominated me for the Spirit of Adventure award. I have heard there was at least ten submitted. However, the one nomination that counted, for sure, stands out above all others. Norm Miller’s. His is likely the nominator that cinched the deal. Norm is the Administrator of the well known “Missouri River Paddlers” Face Book Group with 1,643 members. Also Norm is an adventurer from way back, His paddles on the Missouri and beyond are legendary.
Norm, I thank you very much. I thank you as well for driving all the way down to Salt Lake to attend the Awards Banquet. Your presence was paramount. Also, I appreciated visiting with the folks from the Re-Discover North America Team. Their winning of the “Adventure of the Year” Award ended with an euphoric evening for all.
I got the impression the Canoe and Kayak Magazine number of votes cast for all nominees was the most ever. I have no individual figures. I do feel though I received “Tuns of Votes” and feel no doubt your efforts to get out the vote made a significant difference. I could not have been more pleased, standing there with you. WOW! I was truly blessed.
Thank you Norm for all you have and what you are doing to promote paddling on the Missouri
