'''"The Cup" ''' (formerly known as the "Triple-D Cup") is an award trophy claimed by the winner of the Cannonball Run, an inter-school competition between the engineering societies of the University of Toronto, McMaster University, and the University of Waterloo. The University of Toronto rightfully regained their spot in the competition after winning the Cannonball Run at the end of November 2014 and successfully ousting Conestoga College.
The competition is loosely based on the Alberta Cup and corresponding Cup Run, an event run between the engineering societies of the University of Alberta and University of Calgary.
==Inception==
In June 2010, drafting began for a document outlining at the 2010 Annual General Meeting of the rules and regulations Engineering Students Societies' Council of a competition to promote spirit and inter-school rivalryOntario ([https://www.essco. The document was established by ca/ ESSCO]), the Presidents and VPs External VP Externals of the three schools' engineering societiesof the University of Waterloo (Scott Rankin/Tim Bandura and Leah Allen/Kevin Ling), McMaster University (Kyle Heywood/Evan Stevens), and University of Toronto (Kevin Siu/Mauricio Curbelo) along with the incoming and outgoing Presidents presidents of the Engineering Student Societies' Council of Ontario. The resulting document, ''The Gran Turismo Accord'', was enacted by the three participating engineering societies on July 5, 2010ESSCO (Spencer McEwan and Alessia Danelon) discussed a friendly competition to promote spirit and inter-school rivalry.
At least once per semesterThe idea, introduced to the three engineering societies by the school in possession of The ESSCO executives, was based loosely on the "Cup must declare Run"organized between the University of Alberta and University of Calgary Engineering Students' Societies. The Alberta version of the Cup is up!" and Run involved the other two schools must race to the host. After the first school arrives to claim The universities taking turns hosting a Cup, there is a three hour window in which allowed them to call the second school may arrive to challenge other engineering society at a time of their choosing - if the claim. In this caseopposing engineering society arrived within one hour, they were granted free drinks at the winner of The Cup is then determined by a BOAT race using the host schoolhosts's house rulesexpense.
By late June 2019, efforts began to draft a document outlining the rules and regulations involving the engineering societies of all three schools. Scott Rankin proposed the first draft as a mock "motion" before ESSCO, titled ''"[[:File:Motion Three Schools one cup.pdf|Three Schools One Cup]]''". On July 5, 2010, the three participating engineering societies agreed to and enacted ''[[:File:The Gran Turismo Accord.pdf|The Gran Turismo Accord]]'', defining the initial rules for ''The Cannonball Run''. In general terms, the Accord provides that at least once per semester, the school in possession of The Cup must declare "The Cup is up!" and the other two schools must race to the host. After the first school arrives to claim The Cup, there is a three hour window in which the second school may arrive to challenge the claim. In this case, the winner of The Cup is then determined by a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boat_race_(game) BOAT race] using the host school's house rules. The trophy consists of a cup trophy atop a rectangular base. Three sides of the base are emblazoned with a logo representative of one of the three participating schools (the McMaster Fireball, the Skule logo, and the Waterloo EngSoc logo). During the fall of 2010, the cup itself was purchased from Twin Cities Trophies in Waterloo, while the base was built by Sean O'Neil and the logos were burnt into the wood by Scott Rankin, both from the University of Waterloo. The first Cannonball Run was announced the morning of October 30, 2010, hosted by Waterloo (as the makers of The Cup) and won by McMaster.  Skule™ first won The Cup on February 4, 2011.
==The Gran Turismo Accord==
===Section 1 - Spirit and Motivation===
:1. This accord defines a friendly competition between Engineering Student Societies, in the hopes of fostering spirit and community building. The purpose of this competition is to bring the respective Engineering Societies together in a common purpose, and to have some fun.
 
===Section 2 - Participants===
:1. This accord to hold this competition is held between the McMaster Engineering Society, the University of Toronto Engineering Society, and the University of Waterloo Engineering Society.
::3. University of Waterloo Engineering Society Carl Pollock Hall Room 1327, 200 University Avenue West, Waterloo, ON, N2L 3G1
:6. The Victor is defined as the Society who successfully claims the Cup.
 
===Section 4 - Conduct of the Competition===
:1. At any one point in time, one Society will be in possession of the Cup.
:7. Upon a Contestant claiming possession of the Cup, much celebration shall be had between all Societies present, at a location of the Possessor’s discretion, and much debauchery shall be had. The Possessor should consider the logistics of lodging any of the Contestants that engage in too much debauchery.
:8. Once claimed, the Cup will travel back to the Society of the Victor, where they will become the Possessor.
 
===Section 5 - Possessing the Cup===
:1. The President or Vice President External of the Possessor is responsible for the well-being of the Cup.
:3. If the Cup is misplaced, damaged, or stolen, the Possessor is responsible for procuring a new Cup within one month. The Contestants are allowed to abuse the President or Vice President External of the Possessor for their clumsiness.
:4. Abuse is limited to a backhand slap delivered to the face or kidney.
 
===Section 6 - Amending this Accord===
:1. This accord can be amended at any face-­to-­face meeting of all Engineering Student Societies participating in the competition. Once agreed upon unanimously, each respective Engineering Student Society must ratify the amendments to this Accord, through their own procedures.
