Trophies

Got a big trophy in the mail the other day, well, actually peteralway did. At NARAM, the national model rocket contest, teams are supposed to get duplicate trophies for overall championships. Two years ago at NARAM 47 the trophy guy forgot to get the duplicates. Promises were made to ship the forgotten trophies. Apparently the promises were forgotten.

This summer the contest director from NARAM 47 got asked several times (not by me, as I had, er ah, forgotten) about the missing trophies. Taking matters into his own hands (The trophy guy having long since disappeared.) a trophy vaguely matching the original appeared at my front door.

One more marvelously spark-ely piece of junk to store.
