Although somewhat drizzly for a large part of the day, Chapel Farm sponsored Galloway Gundogs held a very successful test with the usual large entry at Auchenbrack on Easter Sunday.
There were 13 entries in the two puppy classes and 49 entries in the 4 main classes.
The judges were members John Lupton, William Peat and John Ferguson joined by field sporting journalist and author David Hudson. They had a difficult job but did it with smiles on their faces and good humour.
The winners were: Kath Parker – Retriever Puppy, J Pavelyn – Spaniel Puppy, David McMaster – Novice Spaniel, Cammy Watt – Novice Retriever, David Hamilton – Open Spaniel and Keith Brown – Open Retriever.
Highlights of the day were Lloyd Evans with Tam getting his highest ever score of 98 to come second in Novice Retrievers and Lindsay Kinnaird coming forth in the same class with her Flatcoat Retriever Tully and Keith Brown getting 100 in the Open Retrievers with Blondie.
Our congratulations and thanks to Chairman Cammy Watt firstly on his win and also for sending this report with a photo showing the prize-winners and judges.
