Last year we Introduced the "EARTHDOG OF THE YEAR AWARD" to encourage more participants to our trials. Points are accrued throughout the year and are awarded for passes and titles. The dog with the most points at the end of the year is deemed the winner, should there be a tie a count back will be conducted and if still a tie the dog with the highest title will be deemed the winner.

This year on our winner was:

Dual Ch (ED) Achnacone Rubies R Red (Ruby) owned by Kerryn Pearson.
