Year End Award Ideas...

This year I am in charge of the year end awards for our local Dressage/CT club. We will be giving silver plates for each award, and then we want to give something else. My husband and my FIL have agreed to make the awards/gifts. They are both very accomplished woodworkers. So I am looking for suggestions. They have until the end of January to complete the awards. There are 9 awards in all, but a couple of people are receiving two awards, so those could be combined into a larger gift. So, any suggestions.

My husband is busy working on two oak grooming boxes/saddle stands (the ones you can set beside the trailer and set your saddle on the handle.

Other suggestions would be appreciated.

That's excellent that your husband and FIL are willing to help out! Handmade woodwork is so nice and can be very expensive!! Last year for champion we gave out handmade bandage boxes to hang on stalls and for reserve champion we gave out wood grooming totes filled with grooming supplies. Both had engraved brass plaques on them. Very classy and lots of people chose them over the option of wool coolers and baker blankets. The saddle rack idea is great though. I'd love one of those!

Thanks MIE! Everyone was quite pleased!

I'm somehow yet again in charge of awards this year. I tried to get out of it but got harassed to do it again. Not so excited. :(

The ribbon display rack is not a bad idea. Anyone have any links to good ones??

If you are good at computers Upnover, I'd be happy to donate a couple of Crown Jeweled Beaded Browband Gift Certificates.

I googled it and I found:

This, a style I had not seen before but it is interesting.

This is more like I have seen before.

This looks like a simple idea.

We have decided on the groom boxes that are tall and hold a saddle, one of the recipients wants a stool with our club logo, and the ribbon hangers. I had seen a really nice one and can't find the pic now.

I will post pics when they are all done.

MIE, would you consider donating one to a small club? We can hand out your business cards?

Upnover - when is your awards banquet? Where? Might be able to get my husband to make some ribbon racks - they are so expensive in the stores!
