Mike Biondo was honored with the SRG Lifetime Achievement award at the 2017 gathering. The lifetime achievement award is reserved for rodmakers that have made a significant contribution to the rodmaking community over a period of many years. Mike Biondo certainly embodies the purpose of the award for his work as the creator and moderator of the rodmakers list. He also worked with Harry Boyd in the early years of SRG, managing the money and registration process. Without Mike's contributions to the rodmaking community, SRG would never have happened.
