    Going to have to start coming out to Calabogie for that to happen (And I'd have to step up my game...it's amazing how much slower you get when you just do lapping and you're not timed)

    Great ideas all!
    Really appreciate the input.
    Will definitely be discussed at the OTAO meetings during the off season.

    I didn't like the stickers and preferred plaques; trophies for class winners per event is overkill in my opinion.

    Although recognition is nice, I think what's nicer is getting a deal on parts. You already raffle off JRP $100 gift certificates, so how about offering the same (or more??) for each class winner instead? Competitors would get a break on parts and sponsors would see more traffic.

    I think they were only considering digital for the photos? Personally, I prefer high-res digital to plaques. You can decide what you want to do with them. They can add OTA 1st in Class SGT3 and Class Track Record in the corner of the photo.

    If there is appetite for additional recognition of class winners, how about include the photos / detailing plaques as part of the year end class winner package. Maybe the standard trophy for the class winner, but also the photo and plaque for the 2nd and 3rd in class (or whatever number makes sense based on class participation).

    Personally what I would like to see (if there's money available for this kind of thing) is more recognition of lap records. Sort of like the F1 pole position award. Just my thoughts on where money / recognition could be directed.

    Good idea Andy. Cheaper than trophies?

    Good idea Andy. We do have an official photographer for next year.

    I like this idea, in Karting we had this for did this for fastest qaulifier at regional events. However I know we didn't have a photographer at our events this year nor do I know what it would cost

    You don't have to wear medals. And you don't have to put stickers on your helmet or car. Don't let them make you!

    Medals? Like where am I going to wear them?? And what happens if,(as unlikely it may seem) I win a number of them? Can't wear them all.

    Re: Individual Event Class Awards

    Personally I really like the stickers. I only won one (the only event Greg didn't show up for) but you bet it is on my car and on my helmet. Plaques just take up space and trophies even more.(they also cost a lot more money). Medals? Like where am I going to wear them?? And what happens if,(as unlikely it may seem) I win a number of them? Can't wear them all. Also the stickers onmy helmet might give me more ice racing street cred.........well maybe.
