It's such a shame to dump them.
They are fantastic small tables.
This trophy cost me around $4000 and 4 days of my life. It's a shame to not use it for something.

The one on the left is a harbor freight grinder that is now a k life sharpener and the one on the right is my garage beer table.

Very clever,i'm always looking for recycled material for projects never considered trophies. You've inspired me to build a coffee table out of a few trophies that played a big part of my life.Thanks Mate

I hauled a bunch of mine out to the curb for the trash man, but a bunch of neighbor hiss came and took them all, they were happy as could be getting these old trophies...

I know people who would take them apart, break up the marble and use it in their flower beds.

My 2 year old son has taken over my boxes and boxes of trophies and plaques. Funny how prominently displayed I used to have them, and now I don’t mind they are play things...I still keep my 2014 state championship trophy in my office tho...

When we moved a couple years ago I took about 30 trophies up to the top of our driveway and put a free sign out. It took two days and they were all gone. One of my neighbors drove by when I was putting other items up and said they took a couple for their kids.

I build chalk race tracks in the driveway and race scooters/bicycles with the kids for old trophies. They eventually brake after they get a hold of them and in the trash they go.

It really does seem a shame that so many trophies are just thrown in the trash.

I hope that older racers will not just throw their stuff out.

I hope they repurpose their trophies and remember their youth.

I donated a shitload of my old ones to various youth league sports. Cheaper for them to just replace the motorcycle on it with whatever sport they were supporting. Our family raced an average of 45 weekends per year for over a decade, we had those damn things all over the place.....

If you have a Boys and Girls Club near by, you could see if they would take them as a donation. I did this a while back and they loved it. They can then give them out when they have competitions.
Maybe the YMCA as well, or other places like that.
