     (c) only teams made up entirely of racers from the same firm or associated firm or the same set of chambers (eg
         Selborne Chambers, Wentworth Chambers etc) (“non-composite teams”) are eligible for the Championship
         Trophy;

     (d) only teams made up of racers from different firms or sets of chambers (“composite teams”) are eligible for the
         composite teams event prize; and

     (e) subject to no disqualifications being recorded, to qualify for the Championship Trophy or the composite teams
         event prize, a team must have at least 6 finishing times. The fastest 6 times for each qualifying team will be

         qualify for the Championship Trophy or the composite teams event prize.

   his/her choice), and the other prize may be awarded in the absolute discretion of the Rules Committee.

10) (Rules Committee) The Rules Committee will consist of Michael Pelosi, Carly White and the Chair of the
    organising committee of Lawyers Ski Race Inc (currently Kate Robertson). A member of the Rules Committee will

    where he/she could stand to gain or lose a prize or placing as a result of the decision. If necessary, the Chair will
    have the casting vote. Any decision of the Rules Committee will be final.
