In 1901 Mr John Pierce, merchant of High Street, Bendigo donated a silver shield for competition among the cadet detachments of Bendigo and Eaglehawk, the first such local gift to cadets of the district. Each school was to enter two teams of six cadets each with shooting commencing in September and conducted weekly until Christmas. The shield had to be won in three consecutive years before it became their property. In the final of the 1901 competition, Gravel Hill A Team defeated St Andrew's College Bendigo A Team.
