Points Trophies Information

The Committee of the Newfoundland Club reserves the right to make any alterations it deems fit (subject to the doner's permission where available) regarding the allocation of trophies and Specials which may only be won by members who have paid their current years subscription. In the case of a dog owned in partnership, both partners must be members. All perpetual trophies are on offer annually.

Trophies must be returned to the Trophy Steward or an appointed nominee. Trophies sent by post MUST BE INSURED FOR THEIR FULL VALUE. Valuations obtainable from the Trophy Steward. In the event of damage or loss of trophies while in the possession of winners, the Trophy Steward must be notified immediately to enable an Insurance claim to be submitted. IF THIS IS NOT DONE WINNERS WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBILE FOR THE COST OF REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR.

To allow for objections being submitted to the Kennel Club, Trophies allocated at Club Shows must not be engraved until a period of thirty days has elapsed since the date of the win. Trophies must be engraved with the actual title and name of the dog at the time of the win.

The points Trophies and general Championship Show Trophies will be presented and given out at the AGM. THE ONUS IS ON THE EXHIBITOR TO NOTIFY THE TROPHY STEWARD IN WRITING OF POINTS WON AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. CLAIMS ARE NOT ACCEPTED AFTER 15th OF JANUARY.
