UGS Herts, Beds and Bucks held a novice trial on the 4th January 2022 at Ampton Shooting Estate.
In Allan Hammond’s capable hands we were let through Fodder Raddish which kept the birds tight and brought them in a perfect position for the guns to shoot. The guns shot solemnly for the dogs and with challenging marks we took 9 dogs into the third round.
Longer retrieves and an unfortunate 4 dog eye wipe by the judges left us with the award winning 3 dogs.
Our gratitude goes to: the guns, the judges, Jim Gale, Phil Allen, Peter Fulcher and Jim Collins. Tammy White was judges-steward, Alistair Todd, Len Herbert and Chris Guest were the game carriers. Nicki Hunter was our picker upper!
