POINTS TROPHIES

Two points trophies are offered each year by the Association: the Gorse Point Trophy for the most points gained by an exhibitor over the show season and the Harold James Trophy for the most points gained by a new/novice exhibitor over the show season. The rules governing these trophies are as follows.

 

Gorse Points Trophy

At each of the shows listed above, the following points will be awarded in each class:

 

1st prize 4 points
