The 2012 Wooden Spoon Awards “Double Trouble”
November 28th, 2012 by James
As you might be aware its that time of year again. The traditional hunting down of staff who have done something truly amazing in terms of messing up. Yes its SPOONAGE TIME or WOODEN SPOON AWARD (s). Throughout the year Stu (CEO) collects dobbage points from all the staff if they catch wind of a big error by a member of Camps staff. Its kind of like playing poker in that the dealer always wins, Stu never gets nominated. 2012 saw a record number of entries with high scoring across the board.
Of course we have to put in a major thank you to our designers WIRED CANVAS who every year make the posters for the awards. Thanks Rob and Alice for keeping us on our toes and this a secret. The Spoon itself deserves a mention, it has to be the most travelled culinary device next to Jamie Olivers pants. Every year it flies back and forth to Kenya to be engraved. It has now been to Africa and back 8 times.
Our heartiest Congratulations go to:

Mark O: Markybear
Carl: Paid everyone twice…Rich staff for 24 hours
