CH MOTCH Fyreglo’s First n Foremost WC Memorial Trophy
Donated by: Bob and Esther Cox
Awarded to the Golden Retriever who has obtained the three (3) highest combined scores (i.e. Open B and Utility B) while earning the MOTCh. (i.e. OTChX leg scores while on the way to the MOTCh)
This trophy can only be won once by a single dog.
Scores need not be earned in one calendar year, but the dog must have obtained the MOTCH in the year for which the handler is applying.
Each combined score must be earned at a single trial. (i.e. you cannot take an Open score from one trial and a Utility score from another.)
You may use any OTChX leg scores up to and including earning the MOTCh, but not afterwards. (i.e. If you earn your MOTCh at the Saturday trial, you could not use the qualifying scores from the Sunday trial.)
