RESULTS OF THE SUMMER WATER COMPETITION 1Oth JUNE 2018 FROBURY PARK SPORTING GROUND Our first ever water competition for AV Spaniels and AV Retrievers was held yesterday 10th June and did not disappoint!! The weather was perfect and there was a great turnout of 22 AV Spaniels and 11 AV Retrievers. We were lucky to have the use of the lakes at Frobury Park by kind permission of Paul Oldring. This proved to be a perfect venue and grateful thanks must go to Paul for allowing us to use his ground. Our judges were Pete Castleman, Ray Titchener and Ken Rolfe who set some testing retrieves and offered some useful advice on handling dogs in water and gave every dog an opportunity to succeed. There was a good variety of handlers and dogs with many competing for the first time which all added up to create the most enjoyable day. This event was arranged by Ken Rolfe and Katie Fraser with the accent on it being a relaxed fun day where spaniel and retriever members could get together and compete with their dogs and from the feedback received so far this proved to be the case. This was the most enjoyable day and we have so many people to thank for helping it to run smoothly. From our ever loyal team of helpers, dummy throwers and stewards through to the judges and to Paul…we thank you all. Finally an event is not an event without participants!! So many thanks go to all who entered, you made it a great day with the best atmosphere.

A few words from one of the competitiors Dear Katie Just to say thank you to you and your helpers at the Novice Test today. The day seemed to run like clockwork and we just about managed to beat the weather. It was a lovely ground from both a dogs perspective and also for the handler and spectators. I was very pleased to win with my dog against a good field of competitors and thank you so much for the generous prize. I wish the club all the best for the rest of the year. Judy Venables.
