Traveling trophies will be presented to the business with the day’s overall winning team as well as the business with the “most spirited” cheering section. Both businesses will keep the trophies until the 2015 competition when they will travel on to the next winners. For the highest scoring team, the trophy is an oversized hanging display of bagpipes on a tartan background (now on display at Centennial Bank’s Main Street branch). For the “most spirited” business, a handmade pewter highland quaich (pronounced ˈkwāḵ) will be presented. The Quaich or “cup of friendship” is traditionally used to offer guests “the cup of welcome” as well as a farewell or parting drink.
3rd place: $50 each
2nd place: $100 each
1st place: $150 each
