1913 canoeing trophy from the Toronto Canoe Club, 5-3/4" tall; beside it are two summer camp canoeing medals, c. 1929, from a New England area boy's camp.

    ho2cultcha: sorry to have overlooked your question way back when. I took a much closer look at the medals; they may not be exactly from a boy's camp. There is an inscription around the edge which reads: "Drake Island Camping Regatta" with the additional letters: "EDACA". I'm wondering whether these could stand for Eastern District, American Canoe Association, or something like that. They were awarded for 2nd place in War Canoe races in 1928 & 1929. The ACA held annual regattas in various parts of the US and Canada over the years. I obtained them on eBay
