The Spirit Award points compilation ends in November each year.  In 2018, we had a great competition between Phil Caliva, Tim McNiff and Greg Aden throughout the year.    


So, for the third year in a row, Phil Caliva has out-performed the rest of the members by a margin.  His 165 points won again!  (as the rules provide, no member can win the Spirit Award two years in-a-row, therefore, Greg Aden, the second place finisher, won the Spirit Award Trophy for 2017 with 144 points).
