IKAC medallions from past years...
- Earlier this month, with the help of my friend Gilli in Ansteorra, I was
finally able to put in the order for the IKAC medallions for the 1997-1998,
1998-1999, and 1999-2000 seasons. The list of winners for those seasons are

the season on the left hand side menu (the yellow menu).
