Fred Horner Award
The Fred Horner Sportsmanship Award commemorates Frederick S. Horner who was Executive Secretary of JCNA in the British Leyland years from 1970 to his retirement in 1979. He passed away in 1995. Fred was not only an administrator but a diplomat, able to resolve disputes between individuals and clubs with tactful firmness. His prime concern for JCNA was not competition but participation. He promoted Concours and other events as family outings to relax and enjoy Jaguar cars and the company of fellow members.
Fred's oft-stated plan for starting the JCNA Concours Program was to give Clubs and families a nice day out. Competition was secondary to the goal of getting people with Jaguars together in good fellowship. His focus for JCNA was not in competition, but participation. He promoted Concours and other Club events as family outings – a time to relax and enjoy Jaguar cars and fellow members.
The Fred Horner Sportsmanship Award is based upon participation in sanctioned JCNA vehicle events: Concours, Slalom and Rally, regardless of how many of each event, the score obtained or the Jaguar entered.
The Fred Horner Sportsmanship Award recognizes JCNA members who are out and about with their Jaguars, sharing fellowship with other JCNA members. It promotes more participation, expands local activities, gets more Jaguars out in front of the public and promotes additional membership.
Get out and enjoy your Jaguars and the fellowship of other Jaguar owners!
