Points mean prizes...
The club has a selection of trophies which we give out each year at the AGM for successes round the show circuit. To qualify for the club cups you have to be both the registered owner of the pig and a member of the club. The exception being the W.H. Hill trophy which is open to all keepers of the Middle White pigs, not just members (as it was originally presented at the Royal Show).
Only BPA accredited or affiliated shows will count for the club trophies with the accredited (main county shows) scoring double the points of the affiliated, with exception being the Miranda Squire Plate for small shows. The Miranda Squire Plate points are calculated by the exhibitor on a form that can be downloaded at the end of the show season. The points below will be awarded no matter how many Middle White competitors there are at the show.
The trophies are:
Joan Staig Memorial Trophy (The Middle White with most points)
Marshlands Cup (For opposite sex to the Champion)
The Rose Bowl (For January Male with most points)
The W H Hill Plate (For January gilt with most points)
The July Trophy (For best July gilt with most points)
The Gilt Novice Cup (Awarded to the person with most points who has not previously won a Middle White Pig Breeders Trophy)
The Miranda Squire Memorial Plate will now be presented for the July boar with most points.
