Some, and with luck, some more.
which distinguish the work of the natural or legal persons who have especially contributed to the knowledge and dissemination of the Road ,

Wonder if this means that Ivar could be nominated for recognition owing to his work with this forum? Hope so, feels like the right thing to do for the right reasons.

Buen Camino

SJPP-SdC (4-5/2011), Ferrol-SdC (9/2011), Pamplona-SdC (3-4/2012), Camino Finisterre (10/2012), Ourense-SdC (5/2014)
Absolutely! The kind of work that Ivar and others have done to make the Camino accessible to people from across the English-speaking World in particular should be acknowledged, at least in a nomination. Ivar will probably disagree so maybe we should ignore him on this one occasion. ;)

While acknowledging our great debt to Ivar I am not sure he has the time spare to create an annual event. However if he were so honoured I would be interested in what form people think this could take and how we could facilitate it. Let's not forget Johnnie Walker as well.
