We used to have a "RIB Tickler" award which is a bent prop. If whoever has it gives it up, we could present it to Alex?

We have the 'Purple Helmet' award somewhere....

(I don't-I gave it up for someone more deserving but can't remember who won it that year)

There's a really nice trophy that was awarded to RIBnetter of the year at the xmas get togethers and it's about time it found a new home, couldn't remember who the last person to win it was. I seem to remember Biffer winning it one year. Perhaps Nasher would like to come along to remind us all.

I can't find the photo of the entire trophy but this was the RIB in the making, it was sat on a wooden base.

Okay, I've tracked down a photo on RIBnet, still don't Know who the last person to win it was.

I've just seen a photo of it sat on your mantle piece

But you handed it over at the 2011 Xmas Dinner to David (Avocet)

I won it back in 2008 I think, wasn't it awarded for Best RIB Build?

Have we lost a thread or something? I can't find a Christmas dinner thread after the one I won Purple Helmet and Ian won the Rib.

Oh no, got it. It's only got Avocet down as the Purple Helmet winner though.

Ribnet (Well past) X-mas Meal
