The meaning behind the Frank Hoch Award is for ALL the time, energy & devotion that Frank gave to the South Texas Trail Riders.  He was Vice President for George Camp in 1972 & 1973 and he was President in 1974 & 1975.  In 1974 it was the largest membership EVER for the South Texas Trail Riders at 1,578 when Frank was President.  A recipient of the Frank Hoch Award is someone who has dedicated decades to STTR and devoted their time, energy, talents and devotion to the club.
