History and Winners of the Owlsmoor and Gunthwaite Trophies

Owlsmoor Champion of Champions Trophy; – The trophy to commemorate Cicely Hick of the Owlsmoor Rhodesian Ridgebacks was presented to the RRCGB and the M&NRRC were also included

RRCGB Committee Minutes 7th December 1969

Mr Hick and Mrs Hull (Mrs Hick’s sister) had suggested that Club members might instead like to contribute towards a trophy in memory of Mrs Hick. A circular letter had been sent to members in this respect and many donations had already been received. A suggestion was put forward to a “token” trophy be purchased.

It was proposed by Mrs Hayes, seconded by Mr Jackson and unanimously agreed that the trophy should be awarded annually to the Champion of Champions, worked out on a points basis, i.e. one point for a Challenge Certificate, plus one point for BOB.  In 2007 it was agreed to include a point for BIS at Breed Club Championship Shows.  NB-1 point for BIS is only at RR Club Championship shows, all points to be calculated in the UK.

It was subsequently agreed at the RRCGB AGM 2010 that the dates for the award of this trophy be calculated as January 1st to December 31st on the year it is awarded.  This was agreed between both committees.

The Gunthwaite Trophy;The trophy to commemorate Rosie Bates of the Gunthwaite Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

At the M&NRRC AGM in 2015 Julie, Anne and David Bates donated the trophy jointly to the M&NRRC and the  RRCGBC for the Best Opposite Sex to the winner of the Owlsmoor Trophy.

The same criteria to be used for calculating the winner of both the Owlsmoor and the Gunthwaite Trophies

The winners of the trophies to be agreed between the Committees of the Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club and the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Great Britain.  The presentation of the Trophy is to take place only at the AGM of RRCGB or M&NRRC.  In 2017 the Club’s decided to rotate the honour of presenting the trophy beginning with the RRCGB in 2018.  If the winner is not present at either of the AGMs or is a non-member then they will not receive the trophy. However, their dog’s name will be recorded in the records as the winner of the trophy for that year.  In order to be awarded either of these trophies it is essential that the owner of the winner must be a Member of both the RRCGB and M&NRRC.
