Ten Year Cup

Each year one club takes home the ten year cup as the trophy for winning Conclave. It is not theirs to keep, however, as they also receive a large plaque permanently documenting the accomplishment. After engraving their club name and the year they won on the cup, they return it at the next Conclave. Every ten years, the club having won the cup the most in that decade keeps it. In the event of a tie, the club having scored the most points keeps the cup. The club that keeps a ten year cup is responsible for replacing it and bringing a new cup to the next Conclave.
