Re: [RC] Awards - Truman Prevatt

I have a couple of questions for all of you about awards. Answer any or all, as you please - but please do answer!

1. Do awards make a difference as to whether you'd go to a ride or not? If so, what's the minimum type of award that makes the difference?

2. Rides used to give out buckles for awards, but don't any more. Is it because they're too expensive and add a cost to the ride that riders won't bear? Or is it because riders don't care about buckles?
I talked to Rich Childs about that since he used to have a buckle for his High Country ride. It was not a big ride with a big budget like say the OD. If I remember is you have to be committed to putting on the ride and have a lot of buckles made at one time to cover the cost of the mold. So I think it is a cost issue. You would have to talk to a foundry to see what the cost were.

3. What about T-shirts? Jackets?
They work

4. What's the best completion or other award you've ever gotten? And would you want to always be able to get an award like that?
Buckle - but I think if every ride gave a buckle it would be too much.

5. What's the lousiest completion award you've ever gotten? And if you feel it was lousy, why?

6. What's your recommendation for a perfect completion award?
