Cam Fella Nominations Due

In News by COSA

Nominations for the Cam Fella Award are now being accepted and must be received by Friday, November 29 at 5:00 p.m. (EST) to be considered for the 2019 award.

The Cam Fella Award was introduced at the 1997 O’Brien Awards. The award was designed to honour the kind of extreme meritorious service that Cam Fella provided to the nation’s harness racing industry, and, fittingly, he was the first recipient.

The Cam Fella Award is not a lifetime achievement honour, as the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame serves that distinct function. The award is given out when warranted – not necessarily annually – to recognize extreme recent meritorious service, effort and dedication to Canadian harness racing by an individual or group who, through their efforts, displays some of the same qualities that made Cam Fella one of racing’s greatest names.

The last winner was Bill Andrew of Calgary, Alberta, who was honoured as the 2015 recipient of the Cam Fella Award.
