Club Awards

These awards run during the winter tracking season each year. They are presented at the annual Christmas meeting. Results for 2012 are:

Laurie Lennon Memorial Trophy
Donated by Pat Starnovsky
Tracking Handler’s Point Score

Laurie was a founding member of the Tracking and Rescue Dog Club of NSW Inc. Laurie handled and owned German Shepherd Dogs, two of whom attained Obedience Championship titles (back in the olden days when Tracking was a component part of the Obedience Championship).

This trophy is won each season by the handler who attains the most points based on the table below. Dogs must be handled by their owners. The handler receives a replica of the trophy to keep.

Vic Friezer Memorial Trophy
Donated and Presented by Tiki Friezer
Tracking Champions only

Vic Friezer was a founding member of the Tracking and Rescue Dog Club of NSW Inc and, more importantly, Tiki’s dad. He was a perfect gentleman who encouraged, helped and supported tracking.

This trophy is competed for in the Club’s Advanced Tracking Competition each year. The handler receives a replica of the trophy to keep.

This was won in 2018 by Marnie with Ineke de Wit (closely pursued by Sandra Elliot’s Chester and Graham Elven’s Sharp and Quiz).

Vi Clark Memorial Trophy
Donated by John Clark
For Dogs with UD and Tracking Championship titles only

Available from 1st January 2004 only

Vi was a long time member of the Club who handled Labradors and a German Shepherd, Eden, who attained his Obedience Championship (back in the olden days when Tracking was a component part of the Obedience Championship). Her husband John always supported Vi and also helped out at trials by stewarding and laying tracks.

The handler must be a financial member of the NSW Tracking and Rescue Dog Club of NSW Inc while attaining both the UD and T. Ch titles. These titles do not need to be attained in the same year. This trophy can be awarded to more than one handler in the same year. Eligible persons must contact the Club Secretary with original UD qualification cards.

This was won in 2019 by Eric and Pauline Camp and Kiera.

Karen Rakusan Encouragement Award

Karen was a valued member of the Club who died before her time. Karen always supported new handlers and their dogs, so the Club has donated this trophy in her memory.

The handler must be a financial member of the NSW Tracking and Rescue Dog Training Club while gaining tracking titles with their dog. The handler must also not have obtained tracking titles before with any previous dog.

This trophy was won in 2019 by Karen Hobson.
