Notes From The Field
by Todd Kellam
09/20/2013: Topaz’s grandmother “Sinfad’s Casey May” is out of plantation stock from the Thomasville, GA area. She was bred to an All Age shooting dog that belonged to a dog trainer friend that ran a hunting operation for a large private plantation there. Her blood lines go back to some of the big running All Age dogs 30 years ago that are in the Hall of Fame today.
03/29/2013: Georgia Epagneul Breton Gun Dog Club Hosts Wild Bird Trial at El Consuelo Farm in Quincy, Florida
02/01/2013: The Epagneul Breton Gun Dog Club of Georgia held its first field trials of 2013 the weekend of January 12-13, open to all pointing breeds, at Canaan Farms in Pine Mountain, GA.
03/23/2012: On Saturday and Sunday, March 10th and 11th, 2012, the Midwest Epagneul Breton Gun Dog Club held their first ever field trials and T.A.N. The AVAD Hunt Club,www.avadhuntclub.com, in Coon Rapids, Iowa graciously hosted the event on their rolling agriculture and pasture land.
03/15/2012: This year’s Nationals were orchestrated with a distinctly southern flair in Quincy, Florida. The 2012 CEB-US National Conclave will be long remembered for many other reasons.
10/06/2011: The Portuguese Pointer Club of America held its most recent UKC field trials and TANs on September 24 & 25, 2011 at the Sugar Brook Field Trial Area in Plainfield, CT. This was the Club’s first event using this venue and first time hosting two consecutive days of trialing. Despite some heavy late summer cover, unexpected warm and muggy weather and an unbelievable mosquito and biting fly invasion, the weekend proved to be another successful event for the PPCA.
