The Arfon Working Gundog Club – 16 dog Novice AV Spaniel Stake

Arfon2015The Arfon Working Gundog Club held a 16 dog Novice AV Spaniel Stake on the 17th November 2015 at the Glasfryn Shoot, Pwllheli, Gwynedd by kind permission of Mr Gwilym Jones.

The judges were Mr Barry A Jones & Mr Jason Toon. The weather forecast for once was correct, the day started with a steady drizzle developing to a downpour which cleared in the afternoon when the gales arrived.

It was a very difficult day for all and I would like to thank our host, Gwilym Jones  for his efforts to find game for the trial to proceed, what self respecting pheasant would sit in a wet marsh when they had nice warm woods to stay in. The trial progressed steadily with the rain testing everyone’s waterproofs and the guns shooting well in the difficult conditions.

I would like to thank our host, the judges, the guns, the helpers and the competitors for their resolve to make the day a success, I would also thank our sponsors CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and Gary McCarthy of Gundog Gear for their continued support.
