Moray Firth Spaniel & Retriever Club – Summer test 2016

Report by Lorna Gray
Moray Firth Spaniel Test - June 2016
We had a great day at our Summer test this year, the turnout was excellent.

The Moray Firth Spaniel & Retriever Club held their Summer test at Ralia Estate on a beautiful day in early June by the kind permission of Alasdair Findlay. We wish to thank him and his Gamekeeper Alastair Lyon for allowing us back onto the ground again this year. The day was exceptionally well supported by our members and I think it would be fair to say that everyone left happy at the end of the day, I certainly hope so anyway.

The Spaniel tests were generously sponsored by CSJ Specialist Canine Supplies and Tain Pottery and we are thankful for their continued support.

The Judges for the day were Mr John Dickson and Mr Peter Rae. Thanks go to them as well as to the dedicated team of dummy throwers for giving us their time. Willie, Calum and Jimmy, thank you again.

The results were as follows:


1st Martyn Ryan Broomfield Kris ESSd
2nd Kate Robertson Jill Limekiln ESSb
3rd Mark Fallon Bankbrae Viper ESSb


1st Gary Vennard Kildabarra Phoenix ESSd
2nd Martyn Ryan Broomfield Kris ESSd
3rd Alan Pett Quickaway Neptune Cocker/d


1st Stuart Dunn Kirstzo Mr Soft ESSd

Congratulations to everyone in the awards and thank you once again from the committee to everyone who came along and supported the club.

Thank you again for your sponsorship, the prizes always seem to be very well received.
Best wishes, Lorna.
