T & J Sailplanes Services Mentor Trophy

T & J Sailplanes Services Mentor Trophy


The T & J Sailplanes Services Mentor Trophy is awarded at the Club Class (formerly Sports and Two-Seater) National Championships each year for the BEST PERFORMANCE BY A MENTOR AND PUPIL(S) TEAM

The trophy takes the form of a silver platter. It was donated in 1994 by T & J Sailplanes Services of Camden and presented for the first time at the Sports and Two-Seater Nationals held in Janaury 1995 at Corowa.

The names of the 'Mentor' and 'Pupil' (or pupils) should always be shown on the trophy, since it is awarded to them for a team achievement.
