    Brian, that would give people just starting out a fighting chance. But maybe we could break it into just two categories?

    how are the mounts going to be judged? who will judge them? How many pix of each squirrel and what type of pix? (angles/close ups)

    It is important to remember that the lighting of a picture plays a big roll in how the subject looks. flashes cast shadows, etc...

    Sounds like fun, I don't have a squirrel to mount...but will watch the progress...

    Re: lets do a squirrel challenge?

    o.k. ribbons are no problem about the size the amateur ribbons are at most state comps. the problem is as far as i seen no one does the gold print on them if you order in the piece at a time. if they don't have to say what they are for just blue,red,white 1st. 2nd. 3rd. then i can supply them myself for the challenge. If we decide that we want the awards to be specific the we can go with plaques which would be personalized and specific as to what we are doing and perhaps carry the TAXI.NET logo if that is allright with Ken and the folks there. they would be size accordingly to the placement 1st being the biggest at about 10'' by 12'',, this would cost us about $75 and we could all start scapping together to get them say $5 here $10 there.lets hear some thoughts
