Tam Sneddon Award

The Tam Sneddon Memorial Trophy was inaugurated shortly after Tam died in 1976. Tam was a long standing and very active member of Clydebank Sub Aqua Club, holding the post of Treasurer for very many years. Tam took his job very seriously and made sure that the Club had a firm financial footing.


He very sadly and suddenly died as he was about to enter the water to enjoy his favourite sport of Scuba Diving.


The Branch decided to honour the name of Tam Sneddon by awarding a Trophy to the member of the Branch who had done the most to promote and encourage scuba diving in Clydebank Sub Aqua Club in the preceding year.

Tam Sneddon Award 2019

The winner of the award this year has been a valued member of the  club for many years. During the past year in particular John Kerr has been very active in organising Club dives and towed the club boat to diving sites on several occasions. He has  made himself available as a "casualty" or "victim" for trainee divers at various levels, to carry out training exercises on him. Obviously this can mean that he may not have been able to fully enjoy his own diving experience!!!? He also regularly assists with equipment preparation on pool nights. Like everyone else, John has a full family and business life, but nevertheless he has found time to write several photo illustrated articles for the website. No mean feat, as research, preparation and composition takes a considerable amount of time and effort. Congratulations to John on winning the Tam Sneddon Trophy.
