The time has come again for nominations for this year's SAS Golden Scrub Brush awards (The Scrubbies) to show your appreciation for those hard working scrubbers putting up your new favorite route. This year's awards will cover routes established in the 2010 - 2015 period. The longer time interval allows appreciation to build for routes - similar to fine wine. So go through that well thumbed 2012 version of Squamish Select and look through the New Route section of this site, the free topos section at quickdrawpublications.com, and http://squamishclimbingsource.com/com to pick out some favorites for nomination.
Awards are to be in the following categories:
1) Best new trad or mixed crag route (single pitch) hard 11 + , moderate 10-
2) best new sport route, hard 11 + , moderate 10-
3) best contributing boulderer
4) Best new multi-pitch (moderate 10 and under), Hard (11+)
5) Best new crag or area.
6) Best re-scrub and retrofit.
7) Best new route name and back story
SAS's Board of Directors has also currently selected 3 individuals for Induction into the Fellowship of the Golden Scrub Brush (Lifetime Achievement).
1) Please choose routes developed since 2010. We wish to appreciate developers who have created the Second Golden Era of Squamish climbing. Previous award winners are exempt from Nomination but previous nominees (but not winners) are still eligible for this year's awards.
2) Self Nomination in all categories EXCEPT CATEGORY 7 (BEST Route name and Story) will result in immediate disqualification. Self Nominated Category 7 nominations should be accompanied with a back story on the origin of the route name.
3) Nominations shall be accompanied by a brief rationale (max one paragraph) as to merits for nomination. This rationale should be more intellectual and have more substance than "because it is mega sick dude."
4) Internet flaming of other nominations will result in immediate disqualification of your nomination with ZERO exceptions.
Please submit your nominations to SAS's facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Squamish ... 1370216065 or to the 2015 Golden Scrub Brush thread on squamishclimbing.com. Nominations will be vetted by an esteemed panel of judges and selected nominations will be subject to public vote on our facebook page. Selected Best route name and back story candidates will be presented at our award function in November. Winners will get a beautiful trophy, bragging rights, our undying love and affection, and possibly some swag. We hope this year's event will be as fun or better than the 2014 event.
