Sheila Saunt Memorial Trophy
This is the NWLRC’s annual points challenge. Open to all members. (1 point is awarded to every exhibit for each class entered (and present), and 5 for each class winner down to 1 for VHC place).
The Limit show is where you can maximise your points by entering many classes, as the CC holders cannot enter!
Points can be won at the Open and Championship Shows later this year when it is a broader competition and hence more difficult to gain as many points, so if you want to get a head start the Limit show is the one to get stuck into!!
