There are separate competitions for Ladies and Men. The Men’s Champion holds the Owl Trophy, and the Ladies’ Champion holds the Fox Trophy. 1st, 2nd and 3rd awards are made in each competition. Veteran (10 year categories), U20 and U23 awards are also available; the number of awards made depends on the number of members completing the competition in each age category.
