Retrieving Ability Test for Gundogs Sunday 21 May

Results and Photos

The Club held a RATG Trial on Sunday 21 May at KCC Park under Judge Roz Buckley and again we had a good entry of 14 dogs in Novice and 11 in Open. After 4 scratching there were 11 in Novice and 10 in Open. 6 Weimaraners (4 LH), 6 Golden Retrievers, 3 Labrador Retrievers, 2 English Springer Spaniels, 2 Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers, 1 German Shorthaired Pointer and 1 Associate.

The day started with heavy rain which luckily cleared for most of the day, although it was extremely wet underfoot and resulted in the people on the thrower having to stand in several inches of water!  The hot drinks supplied by Bern and Linda were most appreciated by those who ended up with wet feet!

7 Passes were achieved in total (1 in Open and 6 in Novice) - full results below.  Once again the club was very grateful for all those people who helped either on the thrower or as stewards.  Special thanks to Monica who stayed all day on the thrower at the water.  Without help like this small clubs like ours would not be able to run such an event.
