We are now into camping season and the pages will slow a little as I devote head-space to Family, Archery, District and Summer camp, and the other Summer camp, and things.
I have, however, found several modern County Trophies and most excitingly the Hele Trophy which is a carved stave in an exotic wood. I will add this to the pages although I have, as yet, incomplete information from the winners plaques and only a poor composite photograph.
‘Most excitingly’? – well maybe ‘very pleasing’. It is at least the only example of a ‘stave’ trophy I have come across in the County and any form is better than another cheap shield. The trophy should have worth in its deliberation and construction to reflect the work done by those competing.
