Best Parma in the state? Chef of the Year?
These are just some of the prestigious titles up for grabs last week at the Community Clubs Victoria awards.
The awards recognised the hard work of community clubs around the state in bringing the local public together.
"Clubs in regional areas undertake some amazing community service programs assisting the local CFA and charities with fundraising and providing supports at times of natural disasters," Community Clubs Victoria chief executive Andrew Lloyd said.
"Accordingly, clubs are the 'quiet achievers' and real contributors to people's lives through provision of social and sporting facilities in so many localities."
The Bendigo Club was named a finalist in the Best Refurbishment category, following the installation of a new dining area and better disability access to the club in 2018.
This year Lakes Entrance Bowl's Club took out Best Regional parma while Altona Sport Club nabbed the Metropolitan Parma award.
Travis Duffy from Bendigo District RSL took out the coveted Best Chef award.
The Orbost Club took out Best Club Community Involvement for its support to the fire fighters during the 2020/2021 fire season.
Host of the CCV awards Ben Sorensen said the awards were significant for the regional hospitality sector.
"The Bendigo Club did really well, being a smaller club," he said.
"It's really wonderful to see that a whole range of clubs are recognised, it's not about size or income, it's about how you can benefit the community.
"This is the first time since COVID started that the awards have gone ahead, so there were over 400 entries for the 38 awards."
The awards were presented online in Melbourne's sixth lockdown with a full video available after the event for those unable to attend.
