winning a trophy is part of what motivates people to join a sports-club. The trophy rewards our competitiveness.
In the early years of the club the motivation for most members was spearfishing and catching the biggest fish. That was a very competitive sport and there were many trophies to be awarded at the end of a season or after a competition.
Nowadays the club has moved away from spearfishing and while some people still get their kaimoana at times the days of trophy hunting are over and we have moved to observation and conservation of our marine environment.
Trophies awarded today are for different aspects of photography, improvement of dive skills etc.
