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.
Winner: Riverside Song Jewel in the Crown for Kelbewood with 24 points.
Runner Up: Four roughs have tied in runner up position with 20 points each: Lynmead Amalie Bring Me Back, Rydeen Jamboree at Brihow (Imp Deu) JW, Sassari Snow Shimmer for Tudorlyn and Riverside Song Happy Ending for Rayvel (Imp Rom)
Joint winners: Alopex Marionette of Oakestelle and Oakestelle Venus de Milo with 20 points each.
