I have 4 year of planes and heli's from my teams. Can't bear to toss them, too many good memories! But they sure take up space!

I think I have a bridge in the time capsule I put together at end of high school. I think it might be due for opening this year.

That's a good question.. I hadn't ever directly compared them, so I just dug out a gold/silver/bronze from the 1993-1994 era, and took a photo comparing them to 'current' gold/silver/bronze medals. The design has change a bit. The modern medals are a bit bigger diameter and significantly thicker than the old ones, as is the lanyard they are attached to. The 'Sponsored by DuPont' text is now engraved on the backside.
