10 March 2014

Press Release from Derek Robinson

The Ely & District Wildfowler’s popular charity gundog tests will be held on Sunday 11th May 2014 at Frank’s Farm, near March, Cambridgeshire, by kind permission of Mr. Michael Deptford.

The test’s comprise of an Open and Novice run off the same stands, albeit that much more difficult for the Open dogs.   BASC are sponsoring the Open, while Ely & District sponsor the Ken Gandy novice trophies. CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds will sponsor all places in both events.  The “Derek Robinson” Team trophy is also up for grabs, being defended by last year’s winners the Kirkmarsh Flyers Irish Water Spaniel team.

EDWA welcome  both single entries and also teams of four dogs from training, breed, wildfowling clubs or shoot syndicates.  The advantage of running a team is  a slight reduction in price.  Teams can be a mixture of both Open and Novice.  Each class is automatically entered into their respective class be it Open or Novice.

This years judges are Mr. Melvyn Hurst, Mr. Dave Gresty, Miss Katie Capps and Mr. David Wilcox. Monies raised through the sale of light refreshments and from the prize draw to the Breast Cancer Trust Unit, Peterborough Hospital.
