The IGFA agreed, and the Legendary Captain and Crew Awards were born. The first thing we needed was a list of those deserving of such an award and the criteria to receive it. A selection committee was formed, consisting of me, Karl Anderson, Bobby Brown, Gary Ellis, Bark Garnsey, Billy Harrison, Steve Lassley, Charles Perry, Bouncer Smith, Gary Stuve, Laurie Wright and Peter B. Wright. We then made up a list of captains and crews and, with more than 100 names on the list, the event was approved. We had our first awards presentation in 2011, and what a terrific event that was.
