History of the Bell Trophy

Over the course of time I have been asked, how did I come up with the bell trophy for the overall winners of the race. I was once the Race Director for the Michigan City Yacht Club. At the end of the year of directing the races at the yacht club the gave me an engraved bell as a token for the work for the year. When we started the Ringing in Spring race it seemed natural to do a marine bell as an award for our race to ring in spring.Mike Jones
