Thank you so much to all who helped, congratulations to Ian for Brigg's success. I had lots of comments on how much everyone enjoyed themselves, including the foreign lady with GR who was 4th , she was driving back to Europe on Sunday but said it was the most friendly and well organised test she had every been to - which is all down to team work ! --Lindsay

Lindsay and her team organised a really successful day yesterday. Thank you to them all for helping on such a hot day . Dogs and handlers coped really well and Lindsay had organised shade and plenty of water for the dogs and handlers. The venue at Northall gun club was ideal with a lovely clubhouse for lunch, awards etc. Ian was our ND/NH winner with Briggs so many congratulations to him and the lovely dog he and Bryony have worked so hard to bring on after re-homing him - now a really happy confident boy! Only 2 puppy awards because of zeros but Lindsay will post all results. Well done everyone and really great to see so many of our committee able to be there either to help or compete - what a good team we are! --Pat
