Southern Michigan Weimaraner Club Walking Field Trial

May 22, 2010                                                                                   Highland, MI


The weather was not very cooperative. Friday night there were thunderstorms which added humidity to the grounds. Saturday was humid and warm.  We ran two courses-one for broke dogs and the other for Puppy & Derby. This was the first time we had both Amateur and Open Derby and Puppy stakes at a walking trial.  It allowed more opportunity for puppy and derby points. The judges liked the idea of the opportunities to receive both types of points also.  The dogs and handlers were feeling the humidity, but there were some very nice runs. There was a period where the rain pelted everyone- including the birds already out in the field.  (We want to thank Cyril Beaven for his “request” to just have a little cloud come over when his dog was running-so much for the little cloud!)

 Thanks go to all the workers. As gunners, Jeff Gritzinger and Dick Dunnuck handled the call back situations with expertise.  June Beaven was an excellent line marshal. Matt and Jeff Johnston planted the birds. Amanda Lester used her deli expertise to make sandwiches for the luncheon.  Kelly Lester was excellent as chairperson of the trial. Everyone pitched in to make this a wonderful trial.
