Perpetual Trophy Return

We are using a prepaid shipping system with Fed Ex.  That means that previous winners are not responsible for any damage that occurs during the shipping process, nor are they responsible for the cost of shipping. They are however responsible for the cost of packing.

Last year’s winners will be emailed shipping forms. They need to clean and pack their trophy and take it to their local FedEx location.

Visit www.Fedex.com to find your nearest location.

2018 winners must return their trophies by September 15, 2019.

Please email Kristin Butke if you do not receive a label or have additional questions: kristin1205@gmail.com

PLEASE NOTE: 2018 winners are responsible for engraving their trophies.

(NOTE: Do not use any mailing service that requires a signature for delivery, since these will be returned to the sender.)
