Thank you for the honour!

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to say this but I was totally blown away by Sacramento and completely caught out, honoured and shocked to have been awarded the ADS Gold Medal. I still can’t quite believe it and find myself looking at it every now and again.

I feel I did not thank the membership of the ADS well enough in Sacramento as I left the convention early. However, I would like to thank the Awards Committee and the ADS membership so much.

The ADS members have been great friends since I first met them in 1998, the following year at Pittsburgh and at most of the conventions since. I hope to continue visiting ADS conventions in the future with seedlings and enjoying catching up with friends at them.

Once again, very many thanks for such a great honour.

    I agree with Harold.  You so deserved this medal, Nial.  It has been a pleasure to see your work over the years with Ringhaddy, with your seedlings, and with ADS.  And you and Hilary hosting the World Convention attendees at your place in 2008 was definitely a highlight of the tour.
