Introduced in 2012 is the Heart of Gold Award, created in honour of our announcer Crankypants, who is retiring this year. The Heart of Gold Award recognises a non-skater for their contributions to the growth and development of ToRD. The inagural Heart of Gold Award was awarded to Mr. Force, who has recorded pretty much every ToRD bout ever.
It was a night filled with touching moments, as we wished Crankypants farewell. His spirit and enthusiasm for the sport will e with us always. Mr. Whistler put together the following tribute video in celebration of our years with Crankypants:
We would also like to thank you, our fans and supporters, for helping make last year happen. Now we turn to 2013 and making more good things happen!
