Member of the Month Awards

This is the area where we recognize someone that did something special for our FAST members throughout the year.  These are members of the month awards. 

To nominate someone please click here.  Please state what they did above and beyond their normal duties that benefited many FAST members:


September 2020 - Gary Godula

Gary has worked throughout this summer coaching our new members to complete the first sprint triathlon.  In doing so he opened up his tool chest and bike maintenance knowledge to help members fix their bikes.  He helped them get a better bike at a good value in more than one case.  He even helped them get a better fit to their bike.  Thank you Gary and congratulations on being member of the month - September 2020.




August 2020 - Paul Wright

Our Trout Lake Swimmers have been blessed with the additional of a large orange banner used as a marker for the return route when swimming the lake.  Paul constructed this for our swimmes out of his own love for swimming.


He even made swimming fun by bringing his underwater camera so those there could take funny underwater photos this last month.  Thanks Paul.


Congratulations Paul - August 2020 Member of the Month



July 2020 - Kyle Otremba

Our Trout Lake Swimmer organizer for the weekday swims.  He has brought us to a new level of weekday organized open water swims.  

He is one a few members who has been the backbone of our Trout Lake swims.  One person wrote in and said "Kyle Otremba has been a cornerstone of the weekday morning buddy group for Trout Lake OWS this summer."    Other comments mentioned that his first email went out at the end of May and this organization has carried through the summer.

Congratulations Kyle - July 2020 Member of the Month

May 2020 - Amy Skitzki

Our world has been turned upside down with Covid-19.  That is when Amy stepped in and provided us with great support.  She wrote some great articles in her weight training section of our website.  Then she took it to overdrive and started free weight training sessions via Zoom for all FAST members.  These sessions were one hour long and extended many weeks to get us through the lockdown period.  These sessions were also recorded for those that couldn't make the live broadcast.  She treated all of the participants as paid clients by providing feedback on how to do the weights correctly.  Thank you Amy.  

Congratulations Amy - March 2020 Member of the Month




April 2020 - Sandy Eyl

When the covid virus hit Michigan it did it with force and quickly.  That is when our March 2020 member of the month took control.  Sany Eyl took our club into a new realm.  She moved us into the Zoom meeting kingdom.  We had socials, presentations by members, presentations by partners, group video workouts, and even weight training sessions in our world to keep the club members engaged.  These meetings helped keep some of us sane while helping others answer questions on injury or just what to expect at FAST workouts.

Congratulations Sandy - March 2020 Member of the Month
