The NHCC Nobel Prize—Make a nomination!

Each year we at the NHCC select a single individual for what we call the NHCC Nobel Prize that we award at the AGM, which by the way is next Thursday evening.  We’d like to get your input on who to choose. It can be anyone you feel makes the NHCC great. It has nothing do with speed & fitness, and everything to do with who they are and what they contribute to yours (and others) experience in the NHCC.  

Make your nomination. Click here!

2023 Year-end Membership Survey

It’s your chance to make a difference for next season. Our fantastic team of volunteers honestly give immense effort to steer the club in the right direction.

It’s Anonymous—Cuz we know that sometimes honesty may only come anonymously. 

What do we do with the results?

We present the overall highlights at our AGM (which takes place on Thursday November 23, 2023). Then over the winter months we work hard to factor in your feedback when planning and organizing next year’s grooviness.
