24 Dog Open Retriever Trial

 

24 Dog Open Retriever Trial
Venue New Farm, Norton
Date 28th & 29th October 2016
Host Mr & Mrs Norman Onens
Main Sponsor Cambrian Pet Food Ltd
Judges R. Atkinson, N. Coates, P. Scott, G. J. Bird
Trophy Glofa Gundogs Challenge Trophy
Guns  ‘The Valley Commandos’ lead by Mr Paul Mounce

The first day turned out to be a very warm, still autumn day; scenting seemed to be very good from the outset. The judges went through three rounds with six dogs called forward to the second day, all on four retrieves.

We returned to New Farm for the second day and we soon lost one dog, leaving the last five dogs to compete to the conclusion of the trial. All five dogs finished on eight retrieves and the standard of marking was very high.

The team of judges were Robert Atkinson, Nick Coates, Peter Scott and Graham Bird. On conclusion of the trial they awarded a full list of awards as shown below. In addition, Paul Mounce and his team of guns shot brilliantly over the two days, as usual, and awarded Guns’ Choice to Tess Lawrence.

A very big thank you to Sandra and Norman Onens, our generous host, who gave us a tremendous two days as usual. Thank you also to the individuals that turned up to help me over the two days, and made it a successful trial once again.

Alan Rees.
