Golden Retriever Club of BC Trophies & Awards

The Magoffin Perpetual Trophies

S MagoffinThese originated from the estate of the late Colonel Samuel S. Magoffin.  It was Colonel Magoffin and Mr. Christopher Burton who were responsible for bringing Ch. Speedwell Pluto to North America, thus establishing the breed on this continent.  In 1930, on the advice of Christopher Burton, Colonel Magoffin imported the future BIS Am Can. Ch Speedwell Pluto and established his Rockhaven Kennels in North Vancouver and Gilnockie Kennels in Denver, Colorado.

Most of the Magoffin Trophies date from the late 1930’s and were won by various Rockhaven dogs.  These Trophies have been reconditioned and are now awarded annually by the GRCBC at the Club’s Annual Awards Banquet.  Due to the age and historical importance of these Trophies, members receiving them must handle them with care.  A damage deposit is required before taking possession of a Magoffin Perpetual Trophy.  The damage deposit is refunded on return of the trophy to the Trophy Chair.
