Fall Field Trial, November 25th and 26th, 2017:
Spring 2017 Field Trial Results:
We had a great trial this past weekend. Thank you to all who participated and especially to everyone who helped the event go smoothly.
Fall 2016 Field Trial Results:
SMESC was blessed with beautiful weather for our last Field Trial of 2016.
There were some wonderful performances by really talented and well trained dogs. I saw smiling faces and happy dogs -winners and losers so it’s all a win in my book and I hope in yours too. We are already working on another trial this February 18+19 . So mark your calendars now.
A word of thanks to our many members who helped out throughout the 2 days. LuAnn and Roger for … pretty much everything! I don’t know about anyone else but I loved Rogers fancy course map. The two of them are tireless in their support and we could not do this without them. Frank, Suzan, and Carol S for setting up and maintaining the kitchen. From before the sun rises till the end of the event. They buy our supplies set up and have coffee ready for those who arrive with the sun and we appreciate it! We do have the best field trial / test food. Carol is new to the club and has stepped right up to help. Ray for getting us those good birds again and ordering the winners plaques. Carole for the beautiful judges’ cards and her delicious soup. Bird planters Don, LuAnn, Catie , and myself! John W for the use of his vehicle and continuing to support us (me). John T for helping everyone everywhere whenever a hand was needed. Catie for doing all the internet stuff so we can communicate electronically and post pictures. Kim & Raymond McVeigh for attending again from their home in Michigan. We love having you guys – happy Pike took home 2nd place in Derby.
See you in February we hope!
We have some members wins to celebrate too!
