2015 Fall Field Trial October 24th & 25th

Our club is truly amazing. We manage to cover most, if not all, the bases for our Gordons. Here’s the premium for our Fall Field Trial, October 24 and 25, at the wonderful Flaherty Field Trial Area in East Windsor, CT. 

Please remember, you do not have to have an entry to attend. Come and lend a hand, have some fun! Of course an entry would be wonderful. Puppies from 6  to 15 months are eligible for the Puppy Stake, and Derby is open to dogs from 6 months to 2 years. Even if you don’t ride, you can handle on foot, and you set the pace for the brace. The last stake of the weekend is the Amateur Walking Derby, where there are NO PROS to compete with, and ALL handlers are on foot! If you have a dog under two years of age, we highly encourage you to enter! Your dog will thank you!

See you there,

Setter Symposium Cancelled!

Due to the horrid winter we had this year, we’ve made the decision to cancel the Setter Symposium, on Saturday, April 11.
The grounds are still too snow-covered and muddy. There’s a chance it may be rescheduled to a later date, but no decision has yet been made about that.
When there is a new date, I will send that information out. In the meantime, our field trial is still scheduled to take place that weekend,
so set your GPS to Flaherty instead, and come on along. It’s both days, April 11 & 12. And bring your boots!
