First Field Trial of the season October 2015

NOVICE A V Retriever Trial at Checkley

The day was with walked up partridge in roots and the weather was very near perfect -dry with a light breeze.

Guns, Kevin Carty, Phil Robinson, Steve Harding and Benjamin Turner shot well, dropping good birds for the dogs all day.


Lunchtime saw judges, Keith Bellamy, Mike Allen, Phillip Smithies and Dave Kirkby taking just three competitors to a third run with a nail biting finish.

Ian Glover was unlucky when his dog failed to find an elusive runner leaving just two dogs to take well deserved awards.

1. BLACK TRAGOPAN Lab bitch Owner/ Handler Charlotte Earnshaw

2. NORBECK HEATHER OF APPLEBRIAR  Lab Bitch Owner/ Handler Anthony Appleton.

Thanks to all who helped organise and run the day, Lisa Beeston, Chris Brown, Gill Awty and to Skinners our sponsors.

The raffle raised £75 for our charity Grinshill Animal Rescue.
