Due to the abundance of snow still on the ground in the mid-coast area, our wild bird trial is cancelled again this year. We look forward to seeing everyone at our quail trial in May!
Winner: Jonesy’s Rebel Revenge, Tim Kisieleski, owner; Tony Bly, handler,
R-U: Chasehill Little Bud, John Stolgitis, owner/handler.
Congrats to Timmy, Tony and John. Another successful championship is in the books!
Thanks to our many active member, especially Steve and Patty Forrest for their hospitality and hard work…way above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard on the courses this summer…cutting them and re-cutting them due to all the timber cutting that is being done to the grounds. There was hardly any activity over the three days…nothing that interfered with the smooth running of the championship.
Thanks to everyone who came from far and wide to support the Northeastern. We had some newcomers: PA professional trainer/handler Robert Ecker, PA amateur Mike Groy and RI amateur Kelsey Dellinger and her family. A big thanks to judges Mike Roderka and Russell Ogilvy (who is off the hook for a while having recently judged the North American Woodcock Championship). Special thanks to Purina Field Consultant Terry Trzcinski and his wife Cathy who spent a couple of days with us. Terry is very committed to our sport.
Photos, short videos and a full report to follow. Stay tuned!
