Judges: Mrs H Sully (A2376), Mrs J Venturi-Rose (B1930), Mrs E Barnes (NP2551), Mrs J Tydeman (NP3367)


Being early in the season, the drives were not producing the amount of birds expected despite a lot of hard work from the keeper & beaters. The day was long, but we were able to get enough game on the ground for the judges to reach a decision. I would like to say a huge thank you to my judges Helena Sully, Joy Venturi Rose, Liz Barnes & Jane Tydeman, who dealt with the day efficiently & in good spirits. To the keeper Roy & his team for all their efforts, Darren & his guns for shooting so well & last, but by no means least, to my brilliant helpers, I couldn't do it without you.
Well done to everyone, it was a pleasure to watch your dogs work, hope you all enjoyed the day.
