Aztalan Member Erin Bodenbach Receives Junior Lofquist Award From District 16 Council
AMA District 16 Council recognized one of the younger Aztalan members with the newly created Junior Lofquist Award. It was presented to Erin Bodenbach at the annual awards banquet last week at the Kalahari Resort.
Probably thirty years ago, the district newsletter was written by Dick and Loretta Lofquist, and it was called the Lofquist Racing News. In 1995 their son asked the district board to consider recognizing that one volunteer, that one person without whom running a successful event would not be possible. That person may be in the background, but is working continuously to see that the job gets done. Vince said he would prefer it not be a racer, but it could be. Judy Sumner was the first recipient of the Lofquist Award. Over the years, a variety of volunteers have received this prestigious award.
At a meeting this summer, the board felt there were young people in our clubs and/or working our events who deserve recognition. Judy immediately thought of Erin, and nominated her to be the recipient of the first Junior Lofquist. Judy noted that Erin began coming to Aztalan and timing the heats at the short track races. Soon she was handling signup, and before you knew it, she was scoring those events. Then she began scoring the mx events as well. And she continues to do so all the while maintaining a very high grade point average at her high school. She has put in over 100 hours at Aztalan this year alone. It was a no brainer to see that Erin get this award.
