Thanks to everyone who supported and helped with the trial despite the awful, rainy weather on Saturday. Chris Clarke journeyed all the way from Nova Scotia, Bob Little came from New Brunswick, Paul Fuhrman from western Massachusetts and Frank Joyal from Vermont. Special thanks to Cal Robinson who came up from Saco, Maine to help out with the judging. Thanks to Steve Forrest, Joe Dahl and Al Robbins who also did a lot of judging. Thanks to Pat Forrest, the world’s most organized field trial club secretary…and Pat and Steve for once again hosting the potluck supper at their home. Thanks to Mike Flewelling for picking up the coffee and those green and pink donuts. Yum! Thanks to Mark and Nick Kingsbury for putting birds out (to drown on Saturday!). And a big thanks to all who came to run dogs in our 10th Anniversary Gundog Challenge!
