The Ed Fujimoto award is given to one person from each PNKCA club “in appreciation for outstanding dedication and performance to his/her club”. It is given to someone who has gone beyond just being a member and has done something special for their club. Only one member (or couple from the same household) may be submitted from each club. Nominees are voted on by club members and submitted on the form at the bottom of this page.  This award is not available to clubs that are not current members of the PNKCA.
