2021 Personal Trust Mowbray Lucky Cup
After a break during the Covid lockdowns in 2020, the Personal Trust Mowbray Lucky Cup is back this year – and bigger and better than ever!
Invitations and Entries
We are very lucky to have a lot of interest in entering the Lucky Cup every year, and we are very grateful for this. It does, however, often put us in an awkward situation where we cannot accept entries from everyone who wants to participate.
We have continued with the system implemented a couple of years ago, whereby Skips who have entered teams 4 years in a row get an early invitation. To this list we have added a few major sponsors.
After these invites are sent out, we have asked them to let us know whether or not they are entering within 24 hours. Please note that invitations are not transferable!
If we have any open spaces after that, we will accept entries from anyone else who would like to play.
Entry Lucky Draw
As nearly everyone is aware, Mowbray is always looking for new and different ways of doing things – and we are doing this again with all the remaining entries received this year (after the invitees). We are moving away from the first come, first served approach so commonly used.
We will accept any entries until Monday 4 October, and then will have a Lucky Cup Lucky Draw to allocate the places that remain open!

Sections and Prizes
At the Lucky Cup, everyone wins a prize, from position 1 to 24. As such, we will not be dividing teams into two sections. You can play until the last game to move up the table and qualify for better prizes!
