François Ménard Versatility Award
Since 2017, the versatility prize has been associated with a special Trophy which aims to recall the memory of Mr. François Ménard. The club wanted to highlight the excellent work of promoting the Barbet that Mr. Ménard has done for several years.
The first plaque of the trophy bears the names of François Ménard and GCH. Neigenuveaux's Gambit CD RAE CGN RPT. This trophy is perpetually kept at the Club and the recipient of the annual award receives a plaque attached to the trophy.
All members of Club Barbet Canada are eligible for the Versatility Award.
The Versatility Award was created to recognize outstanding contribution, by a Barbet, to the breed, in Canada. It will be awarded to a Barbet, male or female, that has accumulated multiple CKC performance titles.
A plaque with the name of the winning Barbet will be presented to the owner during the Club Barbet National Specialty. In the years that that the Specialty is not held, awards are given out at the Annual General Meeting. The award is mailed to recipients who are unable to receive it in person.
