Arfon Working Gundog Club Anglesey
The Arfon Working Gundog Club held their Open AV Spaniel ( excluding Cocker) Open Stake at the Vaenol Estate, Nr Bangor, Gwynedd by kind permission of Mr M & Mr K Jones.
The judges were Mr Jack Iliffe and Mrs John Sexton. The guns were Eifion Roberts, Howard Latham, Rhys Roberts and Steve Preston.Beat Steward was Mr Keith Jones with keeper Mr Clive Jones.
The weather was dry overcast and the trial was run in woodland with an undercover of rhododendrons, and brambles which was quite testing.
I would like to thank our hosts, the judges, guns, and helpers and the competitors for making this a successful day. I would also wish to thank our sponsors CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and Gary McCarthy of Gundog Gear for their continued support. I would also like to thank Derick Williams of BASC for providing a gamebag for winner.
