Living Treasures

In 2005 the VSA created an award event, Living Treasures, to formally recognise the contributions of long serving individuals within our various VSA clubs. These were typically individuals at the 'grassroots' level of our sport who had given long and devoted service to their club in such matters as club accounts, club newsletters, aircraft maintenance, instructors, tug pilots and so on. All essential activities which make for a good club.
