This individual came to Edmonton for the summer and during that time, he has been very enthusiastic and very active participant in everything he could try. He has spent countless hours at the Observatory and made friends with many people in club very quickly. Although his time here was short, he did a presentation on observing in Iceland at a club meeting as well as doing a presentation at the Northern Prairie Star Party this past summer. He has since returned to Iceland, but in honour of his enthusiasm, I am awarding the Observer of the Year Award to Sverrir Gudmundsson. Unfortunately, Sverrir could not make it to this meeting tonight, so his plaque will be mailed to him.
