The WWGS held the first of their Retriever Trials at Bake Barn, By kind invitation of Lord Margadale & Keeper, Mick Lewis.
We had 6 guns and 4 spaniel handlers (Tom Sheppard , Paddy Williams, Geoff Shore & Simon Jones) working the line for the Open Walked-Up.
Our sincere thanks go to them for giving up their day for us and also to our judges: Robert Atkinson, Nick Coates, Diana Stevens & Mary-Jane Opie
Thanks go to Jennie Dimmock for being Chief Steward and also to our stewards Jackie Davis & Nikki Urquhart and to game carriers Howard & Steve.
The ground was mainly woodland with heavy cover of bramble & bracken.
