Colleena Blair Memorial Shield

This is an inter-centre competition, first held in 2016, contested between Wellington, Hawkes Bay/Gisborne, Manawatu/Wanganui and Taranaki masters. The winning centre is based on the scoring of the top age-graded master performance from each centre within each event.

Jim Blair donated the Memorial Shield, commemorating Colleena Blair.

The next holding of the inaugural Colleena Blair Memorial Shield will take place in 2021. It is usually held on the Sunday of the Wellington Anniversay Weekend in Palmerston North or Whanganui.

There is a Facebook Page for the Competition here.

Scoring System: From 2020: five points for first place, three points for second place, two points for third place and one point for fourth place using the best age-grade factored performance per gender per centre in each event.

Before 2020 (and now only if there are less than four centres represented in any event), the scoring is five points for first, three points for second and one point for third. This scoring method was used for 2019 and prior (i.e. no points for fourth place).

Should two athletes be tied, then they each receive an equal share of the summed points.

Only the top scoring athlete from each centre contributes points to their centre's tally. (I am not sure if this applied in the early years.)

Due to the memorial nature of the event, an athlete may sometimes compete as a guest for a centre, rather than being a member but it is expected that actual members will compete for their affiliated centre.
