Bob Garing Service Award
In 2001 the club presented Bob Garing with the first SLOB Bob Garing Service Award "In recognition of many years of unselfish service to the San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club."
Each year we invite club members to nominate people whom they feel deserve to receive this award. Submit names to committee members no later than the end of February (the committee is made up of the past recipients of the award). This committee will evaluate nominations and make a rcommendation to the board.
When deciding if you want to submit a nomination, consider the following characteristics that Bob Garing demonstrated over the years:
- Continuing service over a long period of time – not less than 10 years (Core requirement — very important)
- Service to the club as an officer, volunteer, leader or other ways (Core requirement)
- Advocacy of bicycle transportation, facilities and safe riding
- Service to the bicycling community and community at large
- Significant leadership on club rides
- Working for improved bicycle conditions
- Mentoring through advice, education and leadership
