Shropshire Gundog Society held their AV Retriever Working Tests – Novice & Open – on Sunday 24th April 2022 at Park House, Sandford, West Felton, Oswestry by kind permission of the landowners Mrs Clare Harris and Mr Simon Harris and Mr Nigel Whittingham who let us use his farm buildings.
Lots of thanks to begin with:
Our sponsors are Skinners Dog Foods & thanks to them for their continued support.
My thanks go to our judges, John Yarwood, Glenys Caldwell, Gill Awty and Garry Ellison (who stepped in at the last minute when our 4th judge had to stand down due to ill health) – for giving up their time on the day. My chief steward was Dr Malcolm Awty and he did a fantastic job.
Thanks to all the committee members – Grace and Chris Brown in particular and Jane Holmes who did the raffle. Big shout out to my team of stewards, dummy placers & throwers who kept the day running smoothly – we couldn’t do it without you! And thanks to all the competitors too for supporting the club. I hope you enjoyed your day.
The proceeds of the raffle will go to the Midlands Air Ambulance. Thanks to those who donated raffle prizes and bought tickets.
