04 Jan 2022 – Novice Stake

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!

25 Nov 2021 – HBB Novice Stake Results

Landowners Phillip Smit and Jeffrey Pearman have been generous to the club for allowing us to have working tests. This year was the first for a field trial. Slightly apprehensive at the start, but both men loved the day!

After dramatic and spectacular dog eye wipes, a judges eye wipe followed. It left Arthur being the last man standing and needing 3 retrieves to finish the trial. His dog chased a bird through thick cover and picked and then had 2 more retrieves in white grass.

Our gratitude goes to our judges, Colin Pelham, Brian Chesser, Lee Hayman and Charlotte Wilkinson, to the guns, Ben Smith and his team, to the helpers, Phil Allen, Claire McLaughlin, Tamsin White, Steve Coxell, David Sworder, Jim Collins, the beaters who got the birds in the right place and of course Phillip Smith and Jeffrey Pearman!
