I was reffing at the Wirral Whipiteres intraleague bout yesterday. At all the bouts I’d been to, I’d only ever seen certificates handed out as bout awards for best jammer, blocker and MVP. These are great but I thought it would be better to have something that you could stick on your mantel piece for everyone to see. I came up with these and they seem to have gone down very well.
I used a very soft, light weight wood for them which, on reflection, wasn’t a great choice as it was very hard to get a smooth finish for painting. If I made them again, I’d use a harder wood so the paint finish wasn’t so fluffy. Pretty happy with them, tho! Derby <3
