The Great 2022 District 91 Gavel Race

The race is on! From December 8th, 2021, eight gavels will be racing around 171+ clubs in all eight Divisions throughout District 91, by any means necessary.

  • Which Division will be the first to get their gavel around all of their clubs?
  • Which Division will use the most creative means of transport between their clubs?

No idea what we are talking about?

Think of the tradition of the Olympic torch, travelling through the major cities of the countries taking part in the games. Spreading the word and building excitement around the event.

Now, consider our wonderful District 91. Made up of eight Divisions spanning the south of the UK, from Deal to Cardiff and from Southampton to Ludlow.

What is it?

Between December and March, eight gavels will attempt to travel between all of the clubs in each of the Divisions. When a gavel arrives at your club, it will have its photo (or a video) taken, with members proclaiming

We are District 91!

before it is swiftly forwarded on to the next club. The goal is for the eight gavels to have visited all of the clubs and circled back to each Division Director before March 31st 2022.

There will be a prize for:

  • The most creative mode of transport between clubs (we mean really creative, think Mission Impossible, James Bond or Fast and Furious for example), judged by the District leadership team and awarded at the District Conference on 6-8th May 2022.


  • The first Division to have successfully moved the gavel around all of its’ clubs with documented evidence and photos!

Let your imagination flow. Upload your photos and videos to Conference Director Debbie Williams as soon as you have them.

We will be charting the progress of the Great 2022 District 91 Gavel Race.

Good luck!
