All other trophies must be returned to the Local Contest promoter or Branch.

All returned trophies have to be examined and refurbished or repaired accordingly. This requires a period of at least four weeks. Your cooperation therefore will be greatly appreciated and I would point out that the Major trophies can be returned by any of the following methods:

a) At the RSPBA AGM on Saturday 14th March 2020.

b) Sent to RSPBA Headquarters (address above).

c) Handed in at the Trophy Return Point/Registration tent. These will be at all Major Contests (applicable from first Major Championship).
