UGS K & ES held our All Aged Qualifier Stake on the 20th Oct at Hawkhurst. Despite some pretty horrendous weather at times, keeper Frannie produced some fantastic shooting for our excellent team of guns.
The trial was walked up in some nice cover, with HPR’S working in front of the line & flushing the game. It was really good to watch them work & made for a really interesting trial. We ended with a bit of a drive for the remaining dogs, with some lovely long retrieves & a fabulous strong runner which really lifted our overall winner. It was so enjoyable to watch some spectacular dog work.
Huge thanks must go to Frannie & his team, our guns & to Wendy Harrison our chief steward together with my amazing team of helpers. We are so grateful to our judges Roger Wade, Di Stevens, Mark Polley & Kelvin Nettleingham who kept the day moving so smoothly. Thank you also to Skinners for sponsoring the event.
Congratulations to everyone & look forward to seeing the top 3 dogs competing in the All Aged Final in December
