Awarded to the Full Member club race committee with the best rated performance at an annual GSBYRA Invitational Regatta, the F. E. Baumfalk Memorial Trophy was donated by Thomas and Irene Baumfalk in 1997 to honor Tom's father for his support, encouragement, and race committee participation at WPSA and BBYC. Ballots may be downloaded from the GSBYRA website. All registered and competing skippers in GSBYRA Invitational Regattas may rate each race committee in multiple categories on a ballot provided by the Race Committee Chairman of the Invitational. Race Committee Chairpersons for the Invitational Regattas download and print ballots from the GSBYRA website for skippers only to submit at the event or mail to the GSBYRA Secretary. The winning club is determined by using a weighted system.
