So you missed the International Bank Note Society’s Bank Note of the Year? Well so did we, and did you know that the New Zealand $5 note was the winner? You could read the official article from the IBNS here or you could endure our attempt at humour of the below.
2015 BANK NOTE OF THE YEAR
As mentioned above the New Zealand $5 dollar note did win the 2015 bank note of they year, and it did beat a stunning field from Russia, Kazakhstan, Sweden and Scotland.
We can’t believe the IBNS would not allow the public to vote, so we’re giving our chance for all our many Gurgler reader to decide which of the finalists should have won. Leave a comment in our comment section at the end.
And here’s the Winners and Nominations to make your choice – with thanks to the IBNS for the images.

OTHER OBSCURE SOCIEITIES
Since we didn’t know about the IBNS before the recent awards, we searched for some equally obscure societies.
ISAP – INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR ASPHALT PAVEMENTS
IRT – THE SOCIETY OF INTERNATIONAL RAILWAY TRAVELLERS
GCP21 – THE GLOBAL CASSAVA PARTNERSHIP FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
INTERNATION SOCIETY OF CARICATURE ARTISTS
ICEAA – INTERNATIONAL COST ESTIMATING AND ANALYSIS ASSOCIATION
not to be confused with
SCEA – SOCIETY OF COST ESTIMATION AND ANALYSIS
or to be confused with
AACE – INTERNATIONAL
GURGLER PROPOSAL FOR OBSCURE SOCIETIES
Following on some actual obscure societies, we thought we’d attempt to come up with our own. Kept it to three as they weren’t funny, and any more would be less so.
FELLOWSHIP OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF TUBE SURFING
People who attempt to stand on a train without touching anything now have a home to go to and discuss the record efforts. One has to qualify for membership by Tube Surfing the entire Victoria line with evidence uploaded to the YouTube account of the FISTS. Meeting held every third Thursday at Goodge Street.
