Without the rest of the participants in a class the class dies. I fail to see the logic of insulting everyone that didn't take first place in their respective class.
No need to call people losers and compare them to children. I'm proud of what ever position I end up with in my class, I won some, I lost a lot but gosh darn it I drag that tired, banged up E36 to every event, drove her as best as I could and had lots of fun.
Any perceived comparison to children Theo was unintended. We don't offer participation trophies. I was just venting some frustration for my granddaughter getting a trophy for doing little more than just signing up. It was off topic and no comparison was intended.
Insofar as our trophy situation, it's my belief, that while nothing is perfect, our ruling body has spent considerable thought to devising a plan of year end award distribution that is fair, reasonable, and generous. Of course good people can disagree.
Like KJ said, any idea members may have to improve our methodology on this or any other club function can be brought to committee either in person or through your club rep.
