All trophies remain the property of the club and shall be returned eleven months after receipt, or sooner if requested by the committee.

Only members of the club are eligible for awards. Points may be scored from the first day of membership.
It is the competitor's responsibility to ensure that the Competition Secretary receives copies of the results of events.

Any results submitted more than three months after an event, or less than six weeks before the awards ceremony may be discounted.

In the event of a dispute about a club championship, the committee shall make the final decision.
