Enjoying the Summer Heat

Well here it is July already and while we have had slow periods the first half of this year sure seemed to fly by quick!
While last year ended with a bang due to the acquisition of another trophy shop, this year to date has marked some historic projects in Bux-Mont Awards short history as well.
We finished up our part in a awe inspiring Marines monument which is being dedicated this month, and we are right in the middle of our biggest trophy job to date, the Oaklane grands.  This national quarter midget race is so big that we had to rent a factory to produce the job.  Some statistics will follow in a future post.
There are 350 trophies ranging in size from six to four feet.
We are happy to have this opportunity as the people at Oaklane have been extremely good to us as a customer for over ten years now.
If you are in the area at the end of July you should definitely stop by to see a race!

Cast Bronze Marines Monument

We helped a great guy create a monument being dedicated this month in Quantico Virginia to his Marines brethren in " memory of our Golf 2-7 Brothers who made the supreme sacrifice and in honor of all who served Golf Company 2-7 and their country in time of need." It is being dedicated July 23 at the USMC national park.
The monument almost never happened as funding was slow to materialize.  But because of the dedication and hardwork of one individual, it was able to come together and it was great to be a part of.


 This was such a great story that our local newspaper, The Intelligencer decided to do a writeup on it that can be found on their website, phillyburbs.com

Please look over the photos below.  The manufacturer said it was the nicest monument they ever did.  Marines employed at the bronze casting company wanted to meet the designer and said it was a job they were certainly proud of, and in our 21 years in business this is our proudest moment as well. 

To help a person like Dave Kling bring this together, to help him honor is fallen brethren who fought so hard to keep us free is huge to us.  We can't thank all the stakeholders who helped bring this together enough.

Please visit the Marines golf company website directly at http://www.golf2-7vva.com to read more about the company and the newsletter has information on the dedication of the monument as well!
