Gaire Awards 2010
 
# 1 : Monday 12-7-2010 @ 14:00
 
 
These awards are so special they only come around every 5 years. Ahead of our 10th anniversary Meet (October 16th) I thought I'd canvas ideas for our award categories.

Last time around we had ten categories but some of them were a bit hit and miss (as you'll see below) so this time I think we should have five. I've listed the awards in my order of preference but what's yours?

Wanking In Work Fecker

Firestarter is the person who starts the best topics and I can't remember what the Wanking In Work one was about

So pick your five favourites or better yet come up with some new categories.

10th Anniversary Meet

Date: Saturday 16th October

Venue: Upstairs in Nealons

Time: 9pm Onwards

Join us for our 10th Anniversary Meet - finger food, great company and coveted awards for our very bestest members - everyone welcome!

Plus there will be a site-related competition on the night - One lucky member will win a €100 shopping voucher for the Jervis Centre.

best newbie.. is a bit irrelevant for an award that is only givenb every 5 years
weirdest member could be seen as an insult... best topic would be hard out of 5 years of topics

Ha, fun. How does the voting work? Is it a poll or do we mail you (Thomas)?

Hmmm, a few off the top of my head:

Best avatar
Best godlike name
Erm...best poster between the ages of 18-19...with blue eyes.

OK yeah I'm really scraping the bottom of the barrel here. I'll be back when my creative juices are flowing.

Well I'm just looking for category suggestions now - I will do up a proper form when it comes to actual voting.

@ Efferal, mid to late september, probably in Nealons - gonna ask can I book the entire room and decorate it a little.

Am I alone in thinking that one needs to be renamed?

sounds good.. if we could get an dea of numbers if would give you a better leverage for booking the entire room... I'll just throw this into the mix as well

the last friday is usually bear night upstears in nealons.. and also the Galas awards night is the 24th september

speaking of which... www.galas.ie if people feel like dropping by that site.. currently its open for nominations in various catagories, for example if people were so inclined to vote Dublin Devils in the best community organisation they could do so
or say International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival in the event of the year catagory they could also do that... any hoo I'm a bit off topic

I am still mortified about that so erm no.

That was so funny - I'm still lauging embarrassingly about it.

How about we have a Mr. and Mrs. Gaire...
