A members son who is employed by a large painting company based on the Central Coast asked if the  Shed would be interested in making a trophy from a large stop valve salvaged from  a industrial sprinkler system. The trophy would be presented to the painter who had driven over the sprinkler system and had caused considerable damage and expense.

It was to be awarded at their Christmas party as a reminder to the unfortunate painter to pay more attention when driving, and a salutary lesson to other staff members of the damage and costs involved through inattention.

While the trophy was awarded and received in good humour a lesson was certainly learnt, and the unfortunate painter has acquired a new nickname.
