As officially proclaimed at http://1heckofaguy.com/2010/11/24/order ... ten-massa/, the third Order Of Leonard (previous winners: Albert Noonan and Arlene Dick) has been awarded to Maarten Massa in appreciation of his ongoing provision of striking photographs of the Leonard Cohen World Tour, his ability to capture especially significant performances on video, and his work in collecting and organizing a cumulative database of all the set lists of all the Tour’s concerts solely for the benefit of those of us who find Leonard Cohen’s music insightful, significant, and resonant with our lives.

the third Order Of Leonard has been awarded to Maarten Massa
Deserved indeed Maarteen- -this along with a marble Plaque with your own name there in Sligo :!: .
(wondering about the "First" and "Second" Order of Leonard or is the Award of a tertiary nature
:?: ) ;-)

Hi,
Should I start writing my acceptance speech for the official ceremony that will take place in Las Vegas?
Seriously: thank you, thank you, thank you... (but too much praise will kill me...)

Let us not forget the STELLAR nametags/lanyards Maarten has provided over the years and continues to provide!

Well done, Maarten. Well deserved!!!

Congrats to you Maarten!

Hey Dr. H!
Two more qualifying achievements to include in the award blurb:
- The very cool lanyard nametags designed and produced by Maarten for Forum members
- The fact that he looks (at least) 10 years younger than he actually is...

Way to go Maarten!!!!

You deserve it simply for running that Marathon carrying the L.C. flag ... I don't think I said out load but I was highly impressed.
