Barrie Richardson Travelling Lion Award
The competition was introduced by PDG Barrie Richardson and the object was to "unite the Clubs in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding". These are the words engraved on the 105D shield that is presented, annually at District Convention, to the Club gaining the most points for visiting other Clubs, and attending Multiple District, District and Zone organised events.

As stated above, all entries received for the 105D competition (provided they have been received on time) will automatically be forwarded for entry into the MD105 competition.
