1976-77 - The Honours Board in the Oxford Bridge Club shows the winners as G Pearce & A Harris but the AGM Minutes name Mrs Rawcliffe & Mrs S Claridge. According to Mrs Claridge, Pearce & Harris won the event but were underqualified (i.e. they were Restricted B) - Mrs Rawcliffe complained and Pearce & Harris were put on the Honours Board while Rawcliffe & Claridge were awarded the prize!

The Tuesday Championship final used to be played in October so the AGM Minutes book gave the season as that of the final, not of the ladder. This was changed in the 1998-99 season. The Cup shows a single year, that in which the final was played. For the years before 1998-99, this Honours Board has moved everything back by one season.
