Kaymar Award

The Kaymar Award is given annually by the N3F. The selection is made by a committee, consisting of previous winners who are still in the club, from nominations submitted by members. The award, unlike other awards in fandom, can be awarded only once. It is not given for talent or for popularity, but for work — work for the benefit of the club and its members. The award is a memorial to K. Martin Carlson, who went by the fan name of Kaymar and originated, maintained, and financed it for 25 years.
