For Deirdre Arscott this is her 6th Randonneur 5000 pin, which is the most for a Canadian (tied with Brian Leier in Manitoba). Her first one from 1989 was call the "Brevet Cyclotouriste 5000". Here are the earlier designs:

One change I don't like with the new design is that the recipient's name and historical sequence number is no longer engraved on the front of the medal. The number appears on the back, looking a little lonely. The new design is great, but the personal touch on the old design, recognizing the individual rider with the historical sequence number up front, will be missed.
44 BC riders earned their super randonneur medals in 2008, and these were also presented last night at the spring social. Here it is:
