RULES FOR JUDGING TOWER BIRD TROPHIES
The British Association for Shooting and Conservation, the UK’s largest shooting sports body, offers four national trophies for Gundog Field Trials, named in the memory of the late Noel M (Tim) Sedgwick, the former Editor in Chief of The Shooting Times and Country Magazine who wrote under the pseudonym “Tower Bird”.
The trophies are awarded to the most successful Retriever, Spaniel, HPR breed and Pointer or Setter aged four years and younger during the previous field trial season (2017/18 season). Once a dog reaches its fourth birthday any awards/points accrued after its birthday will not count towards the trophy.
The trophies will be awarded on a points system, with the dog gaining the most points being determined the winner.
**PLEASE NOTE AN ENTRY FORM HAS TO BE COMPLETED AND RETURNED TO BASC IN ORDER FOR A DOG TO BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN THE TOWER BIRD TROPHY COMPETITION**
Points are awarded as follows:
|Position||Novice stake||Open stake|
|Spaniels, Pointer or Setter and HPR||Retriever (1 day)||Retriever (2 day)|
