Skip, and all...
I have to agree 110%. Though i've never run the course, it is (in my own eyes, anyway) one of the key events that make the Regatta stand out from all the rest. There are plenty of folks who look forward to it each year. There are rookies who probably get exciting about trying to prove their skills, as it were, to go head to head with some of the vets.
If its a matter of money regarding plaques, use paper certificates. If it's a matter of logistics, there's no doubt someone will step up to the plate and make it happen. If it's a matter of \'we just dont want to bother with it\', well, thats not an excuse.
my own two cents.
someone find a way to make it happen!
