   The Doug Heron Award is presented annually at the District Board Meeting, to the Unit in District 1 which  had the largest percentage increase in membership in the previous year.  It awards the Unit which  had the greatest success in new member recruitment (usually a reflection of success in teaching programs) and in membership retention.

 

    The award was named after Doug Heron, a long time bridge player and administrator who passed away 22nd October 2012.  In addition to being an excellent player who has represented Canada internationally,  he has served on the District and Unit 192 Boards.  He has also been a Zone Director and President of the Canadian Bridge Federation.
