Why is this AWARD info on this blog when it is not even on the AWARD netsite? The front page of the AWARD netsite ( still has the following:

Vote for the 2006 AWARD Committee
AWARD is currently seeking votes from gold members on who they think would best contribute to AWARD in 2006....
.... Ballot forms... need to be returned to AWARD by Monday 13th February 06.

Surely someone should be in charge of the AWARD netsite to keep it bang up to date and perhaps add a Suggestions Box for members' comments - otherwise we all may as well get our AWARD news (and feedback) here.

very good point. i think is just one of the numerous factors for putting management under review. these 'little' tasks that should be taken care of so easily will hopefully (fingers crossed) be ironed out with the new management.

the info on the committee is on the AWARD website. what's all this shit about new management - methinks someone has an agenda here. I've never had any problems with the way it's run, AWARD School has always been run brilliantly. someone's seeding this blog. lynchy - what's the deal?

Ah! Of course the info is on the AWARD site... now. Imagine someone got their arse kicked to get it on after the AWARD chiefs read these comments!

Or, perhaps it is the "AWARD chiefs" that need their arses kicked for sending the info to this blog before sorting out their own site ...

Info comes from AWARD management (that's their job), not Devlin, Princey or the committee. Management just forgot to update their own site first. By the way, who exactly is in charge of updating the AWARD site anyway?
