|Does anyone have a good idea for tournament trophies that is interesting. (ex. the pro tour gives away guitars/rims) |
BTW, it needs to be fairly cheap.
|Try a hubcap. It's the poor mans rim |
|Spinners from Kraegens, I think they are about $20. You can throw in some Wal-Mart gift cards too...|
|Damn Jason, you must think he's made out of scrilla' throwin' around big $$ like that.|
|big golden cup studded with diamonds(they can be fake). but still looks baller.|
|engraved glass? I got a wicked sick water skier trophey for a wake event.|
|Gold nut cup screwed to a plaque|
|old skurfer would be sweet|
|Leo - Ok here is a killer deal! Sanction event with NWL and I will get you free trophies like these. 1st, 2nd 3rd place for 5 divisions. I can sanction the event for $100 thru NWL/USA Wakeboard email me and I get you started. |
|Old days they used to saw up a couple af wakeboards, put trophy plates on 'em.|
Jeff...aren't you at trampoline class?

|You can't see the cup that well but it had some writing on it. I think it said BALLER? Chris won the crown and the cup "goblet" I think thats what their called and it was filled with cash. It was the D.R.A. season ender "king of the delta" Any trophy shop will have these, and I'm sure that they aren't as expensive as KMC rims. |
|Ok...here's the pic of last years trophies for Canyon Lake. It looks like it is hanging on the wall but it's actually sitting on a stand behind it. |
|Hey Leo, |
I'd do what you are doing and ask people competing...they may have some skills / talents to help you make something really unique. If not an option.....if you have any companies sponsoring the events...but only giving prizes no cash...possibly sell a few of them to buy trophies. I can tell you that..trophies, if done right, can make an impact. We do HUGE trophies for our overall awards along with "prize giveaways" and it is such a joy to see kids & adults light up when they get one. (later to try to figure out to get it home can be even more funny). I'd seen this in motocross events....and it works on the wake side. Sorry this might not be the easy answer...but just my opinion.

|I don't have any of the pics w/ me at work... But for MWWF (Mid West Wake Fest) a few years back Krown did custom boards (graphics) for our Double Up contest..... Those were SUPER SICK!!!|
|Hey Leo, I have an uncle who owns a trophy/engraving shop, but he doesn't do your average everyday trophies. He does stuff that most people haven't seen before. What's your budget? And how many spots do you need prizes for?|
|J Cas, |
You got me late. We just went to the local store. They are going to personalize the trophy and engrave the tournament logo on the top.
Here is the logo for anyone interested.
