Chas: the trophy.
However eligibility is a mess. It seems strange that you can be Scottish Champion and run for England at the VHI.
I'd be in favour of making all regional championships open. Not sure many 'real' Scots would agree though...

What are the rules for the Southern/Midland/Northern Championships, can you only win if you are a member of a club in that region?

If so it is at least consistent with them....and I guess the difference is that this one is “Scotland as region within BOF” and the VHI etc is “Scotland as nation”?

Whatever the rules then I know you beat me convincingly!

The rules are the same for Northern Champs, etc. Only members of clubs in NW, NE and YHOA can win.

The rules are ...
Whether they're sensible is another issue: I just wrote down what Terry O'Brien wanted. JonX is in. EUOC members have to hope nobody reads the rules. The Countess of Dumbarton need not apply.

I feel there's a group of people of about my standard who like the idea that there's a trophy we can win with an excellent run. I also value much more winning the Scottish Champs than the Welsh, US, Canadian etc.

Fans of recursion enjoy...

Yes, most of them do seem to have EUOC as a main club nowadays. That's a change, and other Unis seem to have students with their home club.
