CUGC have several trophies and prizes that are awarded at our AGM, usually in May. Some of them require GPS traces or other things to be submitted, and some are selected by the committee. It is important to know the details of each so that you can try your best to win them!
The Marshall Papworth
Our biggest and most glamorous trophy. Awarded for outstanding services to CUGC. Nominations are voted on at the AGM.
Given to the best ab-initio pilot in the given year, chosen by the committee. It can be won for outstanding commitment, progress or ability.
The Slazenger Trophy
Awarded for the greatest cumulative height gain in a flight that is under 50 minutes, following varsity rules. The winner of this trophy is the pilot who submits the best score of the cuppers competition. GPS traces should be submitted to the committee or president for scoring, in the format discussed on the linked page.
The Undergraduate Trophy
Awarded to the pilot who completes a cross country task including the GRL (Gransden Lodge) and BIC (Bicester control tower) turnpoints of at least 150km, with the fastest average speed.
In the case of no pilot completing the primary objective, the trophy will be awarded for (in order of priority):
- Highest BGA Ladder score
- Furthest cross country task (distance)
- Longest soaring flight (time)
Best Gliding Picture
New in 2019
Awarded to the pilot who submits the best gliding related picture or video (created in the past year, by the individual) to the committee. Judged by the committee. Will receive a small prize, such as a bottle of wine, at the AGM.
