Leo,
I was just giving another option to those clubs that still like to award more than the top 5,2,2. Some food for thought that might help ease the cost, and still award more than the minimum.

I agree the kids do need somthing more then a piece of paper....they are the future of are sport so let's keep them in it to the end ...I have a 10 year old kid that placed in a locol hunt for the first time and got nothing but a paper ....thank god for a good friend of mine Scott stopped over and give her one of his old trophies the look on her face was priceless...so I guess what I'm trying to say is let's get the kids somthing more then paper......

The clubs have to give what they can afford. You gotta look at the attendance at the hunts and some clubs cant afford to give trophies. I think the clubs have to do what they can to keep going. Like I said before, last time I checked the dogs titles are printed on paper.

What's wrong with rosettes like the AKC gives out? Kids like them too.
We only give out a trophy to the winner of each class. 13" & 15" males and 13" & 15" females.
If trophys are too much money why not look at medals? The kids could actually pin them on their coats and tell people about it all day long.
Believe me what you get for placing does make a difference where kids are concerned. We had a derby trial where a guy brought his kid and their dog won it. At the time we were only giving out collars for derby trials. This guy pitched a b*&%# and we listened. He told us his son didnt wear collars, but a ribbon he could have shown his buddies would have been nice. We got ribbons purchased for the next 2 derby trials!
There are plenty of ways to make money as was mentioned earlier. If you are relying on your hunts to keep your head above water you are not working hard enough. Our club has 50/50 drawings, dog food raffles, turkey shoots, and gun raffles. We occasionally sell timber, and recently we have had a metal scrapper come in and clear out 70 - 100 years worth of junk piles. He is splitting it with us. 60% for him. 40% for us.

In the end of things $30.00 to have someone print off a few pieces of paper is way more cost ineffective than spending more dollars for ribbons and trophies to keep people coming back to your trials.
