Ted, The results are not posted yet. But they will be. Most likely they will
also be available at the VTR2007.com website too.
I think that the judges and other volunteers are still recovering!
Right now, personally, I am working on re-uniting the leftover awards with
their rightful owners. I have heard that a couple of people did not get their
rightful award because it was not MADE.
Darrell Floyd and I tried to economize in award production this year. It was
decided that there would be a "standard" VTR award format so that unused
elements from one year could be reused the next year. Therefore we did not
assemble every concievable award ahead of time. As a matter of fact, there was
limited room for spur-of -the-moment extra awards to be assembled at the last
second, as well as room for splitting of classes on the day of the show.
This added a considerable level of complexity as well as economy. This
resulted in some confusion on the part of the people pulling the awards for the
recipeints from the awards table. A few mixups occurred and I am
straightening them out now.
The VTR plan on a "standard" VTR style of award seems pretty good. There is an
8x10 rosewood plaque that serves as the "easel" for the award. It can be
aligned either "landscape" or "portrait" as decided by the host club. The VTR
will supply a round embossed metal VTR logo seal, as well as the event/class
plates which are about 4" x 1.5".
The host club will add a third element of their own design to make each year's
awards unique. They will assemble the awards as well. Most likely they will
add some event/class plates during the convention as participation determines
the specific needs. Also, some awards will probably be assembled from the raw
materials during the convention as the total number of awards needed becomes
This year I had around 82 complete awards, 60 awards complete except for the
event/class plate, and about 22 were assembled from parts during the
convention. As far as I can tell, we had no wastage, except for the special
tiles that were commissioned for the awards. We had 190 of them ready to go.
I may have to make a few more after the dust settles regarding the leftover
awards, and the people who did not get their awards at the banquet.
