BASC Scurry Rules

  1. The BASC scurries are open to gundog breeds (including recognised crosses of these breeds).
  2. Prizes will be awarded each day.
  3. Only one prize place per dog and handler, per scurry (e.g. the Long Retrieve would be one scurry) per day.
  4. A dog may not win more than one prize per individual scurry (per day), even with a different handler.
  5. The Junior competition is open to those 16 and under.
  6. In order to enter the Novice competition the handler and dog must not have been placed in a scurry event previously.
  7. A scurry is a timed event. Over the line starts the clock. Each return over the line stops the clock.
  8. Do not send the dog until told by the time keeper/official that you can.
  9. Dogs maybe kept on leads or held.
  10. If a dog ‘runs in’, then the run/entry is void.
  11. Some scurries may include a distraction or a specified order of retrieving. In such circumstances, if the distraction or a retrieve is picked out of sequence then the run/entry is void.
  12. Fastest dog wins.
  13. No harsh handling of dogs permitted, mistreatment will not be tolerated.
  14. No limit on entries – however should the organisers feel that excessive competing of a dog may be injurious to that dog’s wellbeing an entry will be declined.

  16. Bitches in season will not be allowed to participate in the competition.
