Ian works extremely hard for Highlands Branch and is noted as one of their most willing regular volunteers.

The Jim Taylor Page Trophy is awarded annually to a BDS branch member nominated by their peers for their outstanding contribution to the branch.

Jim commented on the award:

"I would like to express my gratitude to BDS for presenting the Jim Taylor Page award to me on Sat at Highland Sports Fair. It was much appreciated and Thanks to our chairman Prof. Rory Putman for making the trip to do the honours.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the members of BDS who volunteer to help organise the events throughout the U.K.

Now off to find a suitable place to display the award and good luck to the next recipient in 2020."

The BDS tent was crowded with members and visitors throughout the two day period and with support from the head measuring team and guest exhibitors artist  Justin Prigmore,  Gregor MacLeod from MacLeod’s of Tain (optics and scopes), James Govan (cartridge craftwork) plus Neil Gatward & Ben Clinch (UKDTR) it was not surprising the branch won the Best Open Stand award  and reported one of the best shows for many years.

Well done team!
