The Mazen is awarded to veteran participants of 14/48 for their contribution to the spirit of risk-taking and camaraderie embodied in our process..
In other words - for being extraordinarily phenomenal.
So who is it?
As Shawn Belyea said this could probably be said to be overdue to award this particular artist. He's particpated in four different disciplines, which is a very small amount of people. He's a long-standing veteran of 14/48. He's inspiring, interesting, and a great leader..
Mr. Bret Fetzer!
And the man actually tried to leave the stage without saying anything!
He also said he wasn't a big whisky drinker so he's happily sharing.
