Kintbury Gundog Club Annual Interclub-match 2013

This year saw the Interclub-match move to the new venue of Adbury Park by kind permission of the Skipworth family and Headkeeper Mr Joe Smith.

After a week of very mixed weather, the club could not have wished for a better day, sunshine all the way.

The days competition consisted of a hunt-up with a seen retrieve followed by a blind. The ground was almost perfect spaniel country with brambles (not to thick) and reeds giving the judges (Mr Dai Lloyd and Mr Tony Gill) plenty of chance to see the dogs really hunt. With two runs, one under each judge, that sorted out test’s one and two.

The water test, under judge Peter Castleman, consisted of two ponds with a path running between them. For the first run there was a seen retrieve on the pond and the second was a blind up the path with a jump on the way out and back. That sorted “the men from the boys” seeing some teams lose the advantage at this point.

The scores at the end were close but the Mid Sussex team won with a clear 16 point lead, leaving the 9 other teams tightly fighting for a place.

This was my first time representing Kintbury gundog club and it was great fun. Everybody enjoyed the day and the camaraderie was excellent. I hope everybody was as pleased with day as I was, and thank you to my fellow team members Kevin Barraclough and James Thatcher.

An especially big thanks must go to Jon Chamberlain who every year organises this event and this year saw a new challenge with a change of venue, and I think everybody will agree Jon and his team did a brilliant job, along with dummy throwers, stewards and guns. The catering wagon was very welcome to.

Look forward to seeing you all again next year.

Our HUGE THANKS go to head keeper Eddie Hughes for allowing this trial to go ahead. Despite the difficult weather conditions we had a great days trialling. Thanks also must be passed on to “Eddies helpers and stops” as a result of their efforts there was an ample supply of game.

The dogs worked the snowy ground thoroughly for their flushes that were tucked well in and the guns were on target giving every dog a chance to retrieve their birds. The quality of the dog work is reflected in the results, all the placing’s were awarded along with 6 COM’s. Izzie Malcolm representing Skinners Pet Foods came along to present the prizes and we thank them for their generous sponsorship.

Another HUGE THANKYOU must go to Ben Randall for stepping in at the last minute to judge for us. We really appreciate it.

And to all the competitors for braving the not so easy road conditions to come and run their dogs.

It wouldn’t happen without you.
