Faux Pas

Johannes Evert Kappeyne van de Coppello was the first recipient of this coveted award which first made itself known at the 30th Annual Congress held in Kroonstad in January 1995. Each year, Congress delegates have kept their eyes and their ears open to find the most deserving Village Idiot amongst the group and so far it has always found a home to keep it safe and in prominent view for the year.
