Annual General Meeting on Sunday, 3 February 219

Our ‘year’ ended with the Annual General Meeting at Hackthorn Village Hall. The morning was taken up with an Eye Testing Clinic run by Mr P McPherson and our AGM started at 2 o’clock. 

David Falshaw had retired from Working Test Secretary and Sue presented him with a cut glass whiskey glass to thank him for his hard work.

After the business of the meeting, our annual trophies were presented.

The Drayton Trophy, presented by the late Mr Charlie Sutton for the dog which has most points in field trials, was awarded to Lowsommer Seven Seas of Rye owned and handled by Sue Lowe.  (This dog is a descendant of one of Charlie Sutton’s dogs.)

The Madford Challenge Cup, presented by the late Mr Robin Cracroft-Eley for the dog which has gained the most points in informal matches and our own working tests, was won by Tildeross Byron owned by Chris Johnson.

 Penrose Hash Brown owned and handled by Caroline Pont took both the Unavale Trophy, presented by Mrs U. Spratt for the Best Show Dog and the Wemdom Trophy, presented by Mrs Emily Brockes for the Best All Round Dog which includes success in shows, working tests and field trials

The Torrington Rose Bowl, awarded at the discretion of the Committee for particular merit, went to someone who supports our club in so many ways.  If you need someone to throw, shoot, judge, arrange collection of cold game, check adding up scores, test tests, commentate at Lincolnshire Show, Will Hales is your man.  Indeed, a man of many talents and a very worthy recipient of the Torrington Rose Bowl.
