The Fike Award...

Congratulations to Dr. Roger Boser, the first recipient of the newly established Jim Fike Amateur Handler Award. The Fike Award, named in honor of long-time red setter handler Jim Fike, is awarded to the red setter amateur handler having the highest number of points in both open and amateur stakes from July to June of the previous year. Jim Baker, shown here presenting the award to Dr. Boser, initiated this award on behalf of the National Red Setter Field Trial Club. Jim purchased and donated the trophy.

Note that the trophy, a metal casting of a red setter standing on point, was designed and cast by NRSFTC club member Dennis Hidalgo.

Thanks to Jim Baker and Dennis Hidalgo for all of your efforts! And kudos to Dr. Boser for an outstanding year of handling the red dogs!
