ANNUAL COMPETITIONS

What are they and who can win them?

For the new Nomads (and some of the old Nomads) now seems a good time to explain the myriad of Annual Competitions we have accumulated over the years.  If nothing else, it must give some feint hope to many of our members who have faired less well than others and spur them onto greatness!  Competitors in all these competitions are restricted to members of Western Province Nomads.

Gold Cup Handicaps:  Gold Cup Handicaps will be based on the average of the Nomads previous six meetings:  October 2016 – March 2017

Gold Cup is held at our April Meeting which is both a normal monthly meeting as well as the final round of many of the competitions listed below.
