LEICESTERSHIRE GUNDOG SOCIETY 24 DOG A/V RETRIEVER 2 day Open Stake at Nevill Holt, Leics. 2-3 November 2022 held
by kind permission of Mr. David Ross and Headkeeper Jim Chattaway.
Kindly sponsored by Skinner's - a massive thanks to them for their continued support to our sport.
Judges: Mike Rolland, David Logan, Tony O'Hare & Louie Robertson.
A really good Open Stake in a fair wind on the first day and a mainly gentle breeze on the second day making for good shooting and challenging retrieves, held at Park Farm on the first day and at Holy Oaks on the second day at Nevill Holt - on a variety of grounds, mainly walked-up mixed with mini drives. There was a great and friendly atmosphere throughout the two days.
Many thanks to the judges - you were great company and gave everyone a fair crack of the whip. The judges kept the trial flowing really well and received a lot of praise from all. Thanks also to the Guns who shot safe and well.
