16 Dog Open Qualifying Springer Spaniel Stake

7th December 2015
at Fallow Hall, St Oysth
by kind permission of Mr & Mrs Edward Greig
Judges: Rod Chapple and David Sowerby
We were very lucky to be able to come to this fantastic Spaniel ground again this year. Rose and Eddie Greig make us most welcome and put on a great day, we were lucky with the weather too, in fact we were in shirt sleeves for most of the day.
A good supply of game, the guns shooting well and a very good card of excellent dogs made judging by Rod Chapple and David Sowerby difficult and in the end they had a 3 dog run off for first place.

16 Dog Novice Cocker Spaniel Stake

11th January 2016
at Glemham Hall, Great Glemham, Suffolk
by kind permission of Mr Mark Howard
Judges: David Chudley, Julie Cracknell, Julia Reed and Stephen Hood
Heavy rain hampered the start, with several competitors, one of the Guns and one of the Judges having trouble getting there.
The novice dogs were tested thoroughly in reeds and then in woodland, they had to work hard to find Game with one or two going “awol”.
Thank you to our sponsors Kronch and Sporting Saint, to the Judges, Guns, Helpers and Sue who picked up and did the soup, they all made the day possible. Special thanks to Robert the Keeper who made Tea and Coffee for everyone before and after the Trial and to Mark who was so obliging…
