2nd or 3rd at a trial during the current year

obtianed in each level of competition. Eg a "2" in the R1
column indicates two 1st place Restricted wins, which would contribute
12 credits to the total annual score.

records points awarded by a Judge corresponding with
placing. "MTP" reports the median (Mn) of all trial points

THE RA LEADERBOARD
Registered gundogs competing in Novice, Restricted, All Age and
Championship Retrieving Trial stakes conducted under the ANKC Rules for
the Conduct of Retrieving Trials are awarded credits for 1st, 2nd and
3rd places as shown above. Credits are not awarded for events that have
not been sanctioned
by State control bodies (e.g. Sweepstakes) or for events that
open to all Gundog breeds in ANKC Group 3. Scores are compiled based on
results published on the Retrieving Australia website “Retrieving Trial
Schedules and Results” Forum and must be able to be verified.
Results are entered into the database as soon
is practical after posting on the RA website. The Administrator of the
Retrieving Australia website (or
delegate) varifies the final rankings at the end of each trialling
season. Cut-off for inclusion of results is 15 days following
the last eligible retrieving trial listed for the year.
Notification of the highest scored dog (Top Dog) and final rankings of
all other place-getters
will be published on Retrieving Australia.
