As wildly unbelievable as this may sound...the vote on what to call the new MacEanruig award was almost too close to call.
However, the votes have been counted and out of 7 people eligible to vote, "Order of MacEanruig" won over "MacEanruig League" by a count of 12-2 with some 444 votes still being counted and 5 in court.
Medals will be distributed to all Chief's Prize winners (1992-present) once the Executive Committee formally ratifies the Resolutions approved at the AGM. This should be in the next few weeks,
There are an additional 12 candidates pending consideration As per the resolution, Order of MacEanruig members may not exceed 37 active members in 2020
This is what the badge looks like. Sequential number will start with the 1992 Chief's prize awardee (#002--Janeil Henderson) and move forward from there. FYI: (#001) is being held in abeyance, should the Order ever decide to vote the Chief in.
