BASC – Tower Bird Trophies


What are the trophies?

Awarded on a points system there  are four trophies awarded each year to the most successful Retriever, Spaniel, HPR breed and Pointer or Setter during the previous Field Trial season. Winners will receive a trophy as well as commemorative prizes.

The trophies themselves are named in memory of the late Noel M (Tim) Sedgewick, the former Editor in Chief of The Shooting Times and Country Magazine who wrote under the pseudonym “Tower Bird”.


Is my dog eligible to enter?

There are to criteria which your dog will need to meet before it is eligible to win one of the trophies:
