    Not much else to do, then to sit still and heal, after a tendon tear in my right arm....

    So I tought why not start a thread with Belgian medals makers and retailers. With the pile of medal boxes I have that might take some posts.

    Let's start with the greatest name; Fonson.

    The picture and thread on WRF are mine. Not sure I still have them...
