The club’s final event for the year, apart from the traditional Christmas breakup in November, was a retrieving trial at Serpentine. Excellent entries and good sportsmanship on the day, combined with some great dog work, marked the event.
Boggy conditions following recent heavy rains had some exciting moments with some cars being towed out of sticky situations, much to the amusement of our Queensland visitors.
