Chris Parsons Memorial Trophy for the Best Novice Retrieve.
Chris Parsons words by his wife Helen: Chris' whole life revolved around field sports. He loved nothing more than to spend his time shooting, beating and working the dogs, Chris was never happier than during the shooting season. Once we joined LWSC he also really enjoyed the training and competition aspect. He was especially proud of our achievements with Rhum and Belle. If he wasn't training or competing with Belle he was supporting me or helping out. As one of our friends put it in a letter to me - "Chris was one of the nicest people I have ever met, kind, thoughtful, intelligent and good company, but there, he was a 'dog man'. Dogs loved and respected him, he made them feel safe and happy, no better recommendation can be made."
