Anne Burgess has given a great deal to gliding in Scotland. She must be one of the longest serving treasurers anywhere in the UK having reached her 27th consecutive year in the position with the Highland Gliding Club. Without her wise guidance over the years, it is unlikely the club would be in the position it is in now. In addition to her club activities, she was instrumental in setting up the Scottish Gliding Association and in turn gained the lottery funding to purchase one of the first high performance, two seat ASH 25's in the UK. She can also be found ruling Competition Control with an iron first at the UK Mountain Soaring Championships every year. Anne may not have a UK wide profile, but ask anyone at a Scottish Club who she is and most will have heard of her. Anne thoroughly deserves recognition for her unstinting and meritorious support to gliding over decades of service.
