Bob Harman was a mainstay with the Vancouver Island Retriever Club since it’s incorporation in 1964. Bob and wife Sara were charter members of the club and contributed endlessly to the retriever sport until retiring in 2016. Bob wore many hats on the VIRC and BCARTC executive and contributed extensively to the CKC Field Trial Rules & Regulations. Bob & Sara were familiar faces at trials with their Golden Retrievers and always welcoming and mentoring newcomers in the sport.
VIRC has dedicated a memorial trophy to remember Bob and his contributions to the sport and the club, fittingly the bowl for trophy was contributed by Sara. This trophy will be awarded annually to the top Amateur Handler at the VIRC May trial (on the island).
