On behalf of Kintbury Gundog Club and the committee and especially Peter Castleman and Jon Chamberlain we would like to thank everybody, club members, non members and friends for their time and efforts....from stewards, dummy throwers, shooters, dummy runners and refreshments helpers an enormous thank you.

Retriever and Spaniel members would like to give Peter an enormous thank you for holding a water training day at Stoke Charity. His time and patience was exemplary.
The weather was exceptional, perfect for water training.

The Labrador s took the morning slot. They started with a simple retrieve on the water. Then a retrieve on to the island finishing with two retrieves one on the water the other on land. After a lunch break it was the turn of the Spaniels. Again they started with a simple water retrieve. Then a retrieve with shot on the island with a distraction on the way back. This was followed by shot fired dummy on the lake but a blind to be retrieved first.
All dogs enjoyed the challenges and under Peters instruction every dog succeeded

Again many thanks to Peter for the day
A huge thank you also to June for organising such a wonderful day and we all wish her a speedy recovery

We would like to say a massive thankyou to Faccombe Estate for allowing us to train in their woods today.
We had a wonderful training session (apologies to those who got lost) taken by Kevin and Jon.
Great ground for the spaniels to hunt up and lovely tracks for long retrieves for the labradors.

Thank you to everybody who took part today and look forward to seeing you all and more next month.
