When I was TDS Rallying, there were trophies for the top three 
places in most categories. Maybe it's time to consider something 
like this for major contests?

This is a GREAT idea.

I know lots of folks who feel "who am I to sponsor a trophy for the 
winner...I'm just Joe Ham?"  Or more likely, "All the awards are already 
sponsored" (far from the truth).

How about some trophies for 2nd and 3rd place.  If you're like most 
entrants and can say, "I've never won an award," here is a wonderful 
opportunity to step up to the plate and expand the opportunity for 
your peers (or you!) by sponsoring a Silver or Bronze trophy.  Most
2nd and 3rd place scores are definitely worthy (as are the ops)!!

Let me say it again Jules:
This is a GREAT idea.
