The Frank Mitchell Memorial Trophies for Rough and Smooth Collies

Each year, the club awards these two trophies in memory of Mr Frank Mitchell (Glenmist) who was our club secretary for some twenty four years. He was an avid fan of both breeds and so we have two trophies, one for Roughs and one for Smooths. These trophies are to be kept for twelve months and are awarded annually at our Championship Show.


The winners are those dogs/bitches who have gained the most points from both of our own Open and Championship shows.


The system awards 10 points for a 1st place, 8 for a 2nd place and 6 for a 3rd place.
