    We ran the test on some super ground with special thanks to Chris & Sue Ellis who were the perfect hosts. The judges today were Helena Sully and Di Stevens who both did a great job choosing today’s winners.
    Thank you also to our fantastic team of helpers who came forward to throw and put out dummies, cook and help keep the day running smoothly.

    I might be a bit bias but a superb team win for Kent and East Sussex with fantastic scores. A lovely competitive atmosphere with a lot of friendly banter between the teams throughout the day. The awards were presented by Phil Askew who came along to support The Utility Gundog Society.
