Qualifying for the Bobby Allan Trophy

The Bobby Allan Trophy will go to the mixed pair with the highest percentage on any of the five nights …so if a mixed pair wins on the Monday with 67% and another mixed pair comes second on the Tuesday with 69% the Tuesday “winner” will get the Bobby Allan.

However, in a different scenario, if the pair with the highest percentage on any of the five nights is the winner on that night and also happens to be a Mixed Pair they will win the Bobby Allan but will also be the winner on that night for the purposes of the master points – there is no overall trophy for a non-mixed pair in the Easter Sims, just nightly winners.
