CCKC Obedience and Agility Perpetual Trophies

As the trialling season has now finished for 2018, it is time to submit your results to be in the running for the Cairns City Kennel Club end of year obedience and agility perpetual trophies. The Trialling Results Form 2018 needs to be filled in with all details including your dog’s full name (including titles). The form needs to be returned to Jean Wilkinson, Trial Secretary, (email trial.secretary.cckc@gmail.com) by 10 November 2018. You will notice a slight change this year in that you only need to submit qualifying scores. This makes it much easier as you only need to look at your qual cards. Even if you don’t think you will be in the running for a trophy but you have achieved a title this year, send in your form anyway so that your achievement is recorded. For anyone eligible for the joint obedience and conformation trophies could you please
