We received a big thank you from Victoria Pritchard for sponsoring the team selected to run for Wales at the Irish game fair. It was the first time for all the four team members, captained by Huw Jones to run at the Irish game fair.
“The dogs ran well over a challenging but pleasurable course. It was an ideal environment for the team to get together and support each other. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience and all the dogs ran well.
As always Huw Jones put his all into making the event run as smoothly as possible. As a coach he is second to none, helping and supporting each team member, especially when the going got tough”. Vickey Pritchard
Huw Jones from Ffynongain Gundogs, who competed at the Irish Game Fair for the first time.commented “We just got back early this morning from the Irish Game fair, the team did well and flew the flag for CSJ. Sadly we did not win, but the experience that the new members are gaining is great. We pushed Ireland and came first all the way but it was not to be – the standard of the dogs was excellent with the winning Irish dog scoring 98 from 100 on a very hard course, Nigel was running for Wales for only the second time and was in the lead up until the last two dogs ran, but could not hold on and came third. We were asked non-stop as we walked round the game fair about CSJ.
Everyone was very pleased with the food and they say a lot more are using it in Ireland now. I must say we did look really smart in our kit. We will now be going to Anglesey show in August for the return home international. One thing I must say without your support and help we would not be able to get new dog handlers in Wales started within the International set-up and I know they all would like to thank you for the kind sponsorship. So from me and the Wales gundog team thank you Ceri and CSJ for everything” Huw Jones
And finally “a big thank you for your sponsorship for Wales gundogs this year. Hope we do better at Anglesey. Once again a very big thank you” Paul Hobbs, team member.
