The Club operates two ‘Points Competition’ throughout each year. The competitions are designed to encourage members to enter their dogs in shows.

The points system, which was re-organised in 2018, is shown here for the Championship Shows and for the Open Shows here.

Trophies and rosettes are awarded each year at the AGM, just before the meeting starts.

At the AGM in April 2019 Recognition of Achievement awards were introduced for IRWS owners who have promoted the breed in the previous year in some way. Obviously there are people out in the big wide world who do all sorts of wonderful things with their Red and White, so if you do something you think should be recognised or would like to nominate someone then let the Secretary know by 31st December. Find out about this year’s awards here.

There are two newsletters produced each year, they include articles by members and lots of information on the shows that have taken place. A biennial Year Book is produced and distributed to all members – reviewing everything that has happened in the previous two years; it includes many photos of club members’ dogs.

The Club is invited to attend Game Fairs throughout the country and the year, so if you would like to go and represent the breed and the club please get in touch with Fiona, the Working Sub Committee Secretary.

We look forward to meeting you in person at one of our events…
