    ... to be posted in just a bit.

    I want to thank everyone who participated in this year's nomination process. I received many emails, often relating tales of the nominee's good character and kindness to others. Here is the list of all the nominees, in alphabetical order:

    4-2-7
    62caddy
    Avionic
    Audiodon
    bobsvinyl
    dcgillespie
    EchoWars
    GD70
    GordonW
    GPS16
    HarmanKardon
    Hyperion
    ilikevinyl
    jed69
    Larrryderouin
    marcmorin
    Markn2wae
    mech986
    mhardy6647
    Mister Pig
    mulester7
    Musichal
    Ohioway
    OnTheBlitz
    onwardjames
    Paul Taplin
    Steven Tate
    Toasted Almond
    Tom Brennan


    This year's list recognizes some past winners, some perennial nominees, and some members making their first appearance on the list. AK stalwarts, all. I would call your attention to two of our group, who have departed from this mortal coil. Toasted Almond and mulester7 both were remembered by our voters. The memories of them for a blessing. Thank you all, for your contributions to our community.

    This year was an interesting race. There were a few standouts in the selection process. Dave Gillespie, dcgillespie, was cited by many. Ronnie, mulester7, also made a race of it. All of the candidates have been recognized for all that you bring to our community. This year's race had an early front-runner, stretching out to a sizable lead. In the middle, several others, including the two fine men above, tightened up the pack. Down the home stretch, however, one member pulled away from all the others.

    I will keep you waiting no longer. The Audiokarma Member of the Year, for 2016 is:

    Christoph Katz

    Congratulations, Chris. I read many messages which spoke of your kindness and good nature, your enthusiasm, and willingness to step in, when you saw a need. Your diligence in the Birthday threads impressed many, including me. Thank you for all you bring to our humble group. You, sir, represent the best of the best, and are truly the kind of person whom we aspire to be. Thank you.

    Chris is the heart of AK. He is always there with words of encouragement and kindness. Add the fact that he is learning a second language while doing this makes it quite an accomplishment. A well deserved congratulations to you, HK. :beerchug:

    Congratulations, Chris! You honor us with your kind presence here everyday, and I couldn't think of a nicer person to win the award. The recognition of this award simply speaks toward who you are as a person, and we are lucky to have you around. Good on you! :)

    It's funny how something as small as a "happy birthday" meant to me. I felt honored that people took the time to say it to me and with out Chris that doesn't happen. Glad to see he gets some recognition for taking time out of his day to brighten peoples days

    Congrats Chris! Well deserved!
