David LaMarche Sportsmanship Award

     The LaMarche Family established the Dave LaMarche Sportsmanship Award.  The award will be made annually at the NYTPA Fall Banquet.  The award of a plaque and $250 cash will be made to the NYTPA pulling family (crewperson or family member) who upholds the values of sanctioned pulling with NYTPA and goes the extra mile to make a difference for others through encouragement, assistance and an all around good attitude.   The annual selection will be made by a committee of NYTPA Officers and Tech Officials who worked during the pulling season.
