FEBRUARY TRAINING DAY – CHANGE OF VENUE



Here we go again, our first training day for the year is on Sunday 21 Feb.
Due to the lack of water at our usual training venue our first training day will be held at a new site only 10 mins from the Konagaderra Rd site.
Stay on the Melbourne to Lancefield Rd and turn left about 300 metres past Konagaderra Rd over the railway line and follow the WGAA signs.
Bring a camp chair and gumboots in case you need them.

Please note: There will not be a March training day on the 3rd Sunday in March as it clashes with duck opening and the following weekend is Easter.
Normal training days will resume on the 3rd Sunday in April.

This month's WGAA training day is Sunday 15th November.

This month is our Water Test and Christmas Breakup.


As we'll be running a 'Water Test', we'll be moving to a different venue nearby that has a fantastic amount of water on it. Perfect duck hunting simulation.

Newcomers and beginners will still be catered for.

The address of the training venue is: Emu Creek Bridge, Konagaderra Rd, Clarkfield.

Head North West on the C743 through Bulla. Turn North onto the Melbourne-Lancefield Rd. Travel 13km then turn right onto Konagaderra Rd and it's about 1km along that road.
We will be meeting here at the bridge in Clarkefield and we'll depart in convoy to the Water Test venue at 8.30 am.

If anyone gets lost please ring Steve 0408 334 427

Also, as per previous years, brief meetings will be held to elect our sub discipline representatives (Retrieving, HPR, Pointer & Setter and Spaniel)
