Nominations Sought for 2017
NoBell Award

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 NoBell Award. This is perhaps the highest honor that the Springfield Bicycle Club bestows each year: to recognize an individual who has made a significant contribution to bicycling in the Springfield area.

While there are no formal requirements for being nominated for the award, the selection committee takes into account the length of time the nominee has been involved in bicycling and the contributions he/she has made within the local cycling community. Past award recipients have been recognized for going above and beyond normal levels of support and enthusiasm for bicycling. They have worked tirelessly to promote bicycling, contribute much to the club, and are admired and respected by their peers.

Nominations for this year’s award should be submitted to one of the members of the 2017 NoBell Selection Committee, which is comprised of former award recipients. The members of the committee are: Jim Hajek Matt Saner, Alan Whitaker, Harv Koplo and Kevin Greene. The nominations should be received no later than December 20th.
