Results of AV Retriever Open trial

We held our Open AV Retriever Field Trial today (1st Dec) at Inpark Farm, Dorchester by invitation of Mr Robert & Mrs Nicky Atkinson.

A cold but dry day, we started with driven wild duck and ended with pheasants as we walked-up in roots.

The Guns, Howard Feltham, Paddy Williams, Tom Sheppard, Tim Lester, Keith Manley & Antony Lynn shot fabulously giving our judges Judy Rainey, Jill Gardner, Sara Chichester & Judith Evans some challenging ground and retrieves to work with.

My thanks go to them all.

Thanks also go to the helpers, Jackie Davis, Laurie Pittaway, Jos Evans & Steve Langdon.

We were sponsored by Gamekeepers Goods and Skinners with prizes going to the first 3 in the awards.
