Retrieving Trial 21 August 2016 – Results

The trial was held in the Murchison area. A last minute change of location was needed due to flooded conditions at the site – thank goodness for Facebook and text messaging which helped everyone get to the new site with a minimum of fuss.

Good fellowship and equally good dog work were hallmarks of the day.

A big thank you to the judges Byron Kendall and Andrew Yeomans.
