SPANIEL FIELD TRIAL SECRETARY’S REPORT FOR THE 2016 SEASON

Dear Members,

The Trial season is with us again and time flies.

The 2016 season went very well. All of the spaniel trial entries were up in numbers. The September

Spaniel test was well supported with entries up in numbers in both the Open & Novice section.

The Cocker trials at New Farm went very well; good entry and the standard of the dog work was excellent.

The Novice A/V Spaniel trials at Edwinsford Estate went very well with ample game and good shooting.

The standard of dog work was excellent.

The Open Spaniel at Llwynmadog Estate was a little disappointing but things can improve in the future with the new keeper.

I would like to propose a vote of thanks to the shoot owners for their support over the years; no birds no trials.

I would like to thank all keepers for being so patient with us all and providing the game at the correct time and place.

To the stops tapping at the end of a hedge all day just for us, thank you all; it’s a thankless job so well done all.

No judges no trial. I would like to thank all the judges for providing their time to judge all our trials. Lastly, I would like to thank all guns that shot so well for the dogs, helpers, stewards, game carriers, flag men and women and all the pickers up.

Main sponsor Cambrian Pet Food Ltd Pencader did tremendous work in supporting the Society with dog food prizes for all the top dogs and provided the raffle prizes in all the Tests and Trials.

We would like to record our grateful thanks for their continued support.

If any body would like to help on trial days give me a ring any time.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all every success for the coming season.

Diolch i bawb am eich cefnogaeth.

Thank You.

Elvin Thomas.

Field Trial Secretary, Spaniels.

 

RETRIEVER FIELD TRIAL SECRETARY’S REPORT

JANUARY  – DECEMBER 2016.

This year the Society held three retriever trials – two novice trials and the two-day open

qualifying retriever trial. I would like to extend a big thank you to our hosts, judges, and again a big thank

you to the helpers that have turned up to make my job so easy, especially those at New Farm led by Sandra Onens.

We have visited the River Side shoot Sudbury by kind permission of Colin, and then twice we visited New Farm, Norton, thanks to Sandra and Norman.  Both great shoots that do so much for our sport.

It is becoming harder each year to appoint judges for these trials but after a long list of phone calls we have managed to date to get quality judges.

The trials this year were well subscribed, and I feel our entry numbers are increasing year on year, as our reputation for running quality trials has been developed over many years. A word of thank you must be extended

to our sponsors Cambrian Pet Foods for their continued donation of prizes in the form of dog food bags.

I have to say a huge thank you to the Team of Guns who turn up year on year to shoot at our retriever trials – Thank you Paul and the Valley Commandos – also a big thank you to Andy

Patterson who makes my job so easy.

THE RESULTS OF OUR TRIALS ARE TO BE FOUND IN TOTAL ON THE C.W.G.S. WEB SITE.

Moving onto this coming year, again we have a full programme, two Novice Trials and the Two Day Open

Qualifier.

In closing I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for the coming season.

Alan Rees.
