2017 Trophy Return

Central East Zone would like to thank Christine Reupke for once again taking on the huge task of coordinating the return of last year’s trophies.  If you received a trophy at our 2017 Banquet, please return them to the office at one of the two August shows at RCRA or to the show office at Zone Classic.  New this year – If your trophy is not returned by Zone Classic they will then be due by Championships but you will incur a $50 fine.  If your trophy is not returned by Championships, the fine will be increased to $100.   It is very important that trophies are returned on time, to ensure that the Banquet Committee has the necessary time to take care of any repairs or replacements to the trophies.
