Kristi Thompson Memorial
The Kristi Thompson Memorial is awarded annually to one of the Women on the Women's team.
The Kristi Thompson award is based on the following criteria:
enthusiasm for the sport of Tug of War, Dedication to the sport and to the team and finally being a friend to your teammates.
The award is selected by the athletes to be awarded to one of their teammates. An athlete may win the award only
once in their pulling career.
The criteria in which the award is based is all the qualities in which Kristi posessed. She was a member of the
club from 1977 to 1981 and was tragically taken from us right before the 1982 season. The club decided in memory of
our friend that a memorial would be awarded each year to one deserving teammate who posesses the qualities of Kristi.
In hopes we may always remember first why we are teammates and to encourage idea of teamwork.
