Field Trial report by Margaret Pearce.
The club was privileged once again to be invited by Richard Findlay and the Westerdale Shooting Syndicate to hold our second Novice Field Trial of the season on fantastic ground at Westerdale on the North Yorkshire moors.
Judges for the day were Mick Newsam, Stephen McDermott , Glynn Sykes and Shami Shanker.
We had a crisp and frosty start for the first drive, and the guns shot well, providing plenty of retrieves into Kale and on grassland.
Unfortunately only three dogs survived the first round, and only one retrieved successfully
in the second round. The judges made the decision to declare the trial over, with no awards. Back at the barn,over a very welcoming cup of hot soup, the A panel judge Mick Newsam explained that it was very unfortunate but the judges felt that on the day none of the dogs had come up to the standard required,and wished the handlers more success in future trials.
Our thanks go to Richard Findlay and the excellent team of guns, and our sponsors Skinners Pet Foods Ltd.
