Cassandra's Cauldon

A silver pot, wider in the middle than at the base or the rim, with a handle and a lid

Cassandra's Cauldon is awarded to the winners of race 2 at the National Championships.

It went missing between 2002 and 2018

  • It's recorded as not returned by Josh Gebhard in the trophy lists from the 2003 & 2004 Nationals. Jackie Gebhard tells me she does not have it.
  • It's not mentioned on the trophy list from the 2005 Nationals
  • Steve Wilkinson records it as missing in 2011,
  • It was not photographed with all the other tophies in 2012
  • It was not awarded in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 or 2017
  • It was returned by Dave Shilling (who works for Trident-UK) in 2018. Dave told me some un-named person had found it in their loft while moving house. Odd that.
