When I had to find a replacement for the SOTA glass trophies the choice was rather limited and the one I chose was not enthusiastically received!! So the decision will be left to the greater SOTA community.
Currently the glass trophy costs £20 plus the engraving cost and I have tried to keep to that price level, however, the options can be more expensive and some also attract an additional premium for jigs to hold them whilst being engraved and for additional postage costs due to their package size.
Existing stock of Mountain Goat (design at (1) below) will remain available and the last of the Shack Sloth will be to the existing design until stock has been used then both will be replaced by whatever new design is chosen.
The options are as follows (with the engraving on the rear as per our original design):
The design I chose to purchase and has a selling price of £20
I’m a bit late to this, but what if there was a SOTA Goat clothing option? Hat, shirt, or jacket? In bike racing a race or series winner gets a special winner jersey. Could there be a SOTA Goat “jersey”?
The cube has more potential for displauy than the others…could make a nice light if illuminated appropriatly. Also has potential for engravings on multiple faces if 2x and 3x goat is reached (or even, to list all of the summits activated or something similar)
The cost of buying/stocking small quantities and sizes would probably be prohibitive.
You could always customise your clothing using the appropriate embroidered badge (there is one available with “Mountain Goat” stitched into it)
Unless there is a definite choice I may have to run a secondary vote to select between the two front runners (and a third close by).
I think my mathemetician friends would consider an difference of 2% (one or two votes) insignificant.
There are apparel sites that you can submit logos/designs and the customer orders direct. I don’t think its that difficult as long as the site is given the logo and permission to use. I have ordered a couple sweatshirts/shirts this way in the past, one I customized with my callsign and I wear it often at events. It would be great to have a SOTA option for this! Below is just an example of where I got my custom sweatshirt years back thru a different radio group.
