Summary - Competitions
The "Butler Pairs" Championship for the Jacobs Shield:  Held on the second Wednesday of each month (first Wednesday in December). The JacobsShield is awarded to the pair with the best 4 out of 12 scores.  This competition will be scored by Cross-IMPS.  This scoring method is generally thought to be more accurate than the Butler method as all the results are used.  Your score is IMPed against all the other scores on the board and the average swing calculated.  Scores tend to be 10% smaller than by using the Butler method and will have non-integer values.  The bidding/play tactics you have used for Butler Pairs are entirely appropriate for Cross-IMP scoring.

Club Individual Championship for the Roy Cradock Bowl:  Held on the first Tuesday and fourth Wednesday of most months from May to April The winner is the player with the best six percentage scores with six different partners.
