    You could make it in all green. Also, depending on how many ribbons you have, there are little tiny quilts that you can hang on the wall! Judy I know that Tom Sorenson from a jillion years ago papered the john in his kennel building with green ribbons. Judy

    Judy - you might talk to the retriever clubs that you have been members of and see if they have interest in 're-gifting' (re-using, as trophies) any of your old trophies. Maybe they are not antiques but they do have historical value. In many cases (depends on type of trophy), you can have a small engraved plaque made to indentify the new use and apply it to the old trophy. I have some experience doing this so if you have questions feel free to contact me at riskyriver@juno.com

    I have thought about doing that--especially with the decoys. Also some of the others that are pretty nice. I have wondered how it would work like this:

    Name of club
    stake and placement
    year
    add: John W. Martin
    NFC/AFC Orion's Sky

    and then,

    Name of Club
    Stake and Placement
    New Year

    Some clubs might go for that. It is a lot cheaper than their purchasing new trophies and probably a lot better than they are giving out now! Good suggestion! Thanks, Judy

    We have a friend in a similar situation - a house full of trophies that the kids have no interest in. Would love to see those "recycled."

    You better know it. The new 500 point jackets (ah...shirts) look like cheap junk!

    Do you know who makes the quilt. Not sure I would want to try that myself.
