Monday 4th October saw United Gundog Breeders Association hold their first Trial of the season, and their only Retriever Trial, an Open Qualifier. Held at Six Ashes, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, by kind invitation of Mr M G Walker and Sons. The judges for the day were Mr J Bettinson, M Bettinson, GD Evans and G Caldwell. Steward of the beat was Paul Brant and Chief Steward Mr Mike Bradbury. WuffitMix proudly co-sponsored the event alongside our good friends; ACME Whistles, Sporting Saint and BASC.
"We all met for 9.15 and walked the short distance to start the trial. The weather was kind to us throughout the day. The game mainly comprised of duck and a few pheasants. The guns shot marvelously and provided plenty for the 12 dogs to retrieve. The day finished with 4 dogs left."
The Results as follows:
1st - Stauntonvale Lemon Posset - Mrs L Hill (making up to FTCH)
2nd - Buccleuch Bowhill of Sandringham - David Lisett
3rd - Tagabea Loganberry - Mr Barry Taylor
4th - Brindlebay Rum - Paul Jukes
Guns Choice - Stauntonvale Lemon Posset - Mrs L Hill
On behalf of WuffitMix we would like to congratulate all competitors and all in the awards, and look forward to sponsoring further UGBA events.
