Gunma Pref., Japan — We held the Region 15 Amateur Shooting Dog Championship at Kanna River Field on February 18 in Fujioka Gunma Pref., North Japan.

The field was damaged by a  typhoon last summer but Mr. Nakamura did three months of maintenance on the site. He did a good job and we thank him.

The drawing was held the evening before the trial at Hotel Rout Inn Fujioka.

Ten dogs were drawn for the Region 15 Amateur Championship.

We thank the chairman and members of the host Bando Field Trial Club.

The bird committee was Mr. Yoshioki and Mr. Matsumura. They released birds at natural objectives, a good job and we thank them.

Region 15 is now fifty years old!

The first morning we had good weather, a little north wind, then a strong north wind in the afternoon.

The high temperature was of 32°F and the low was 28°F, humidity at 25%.

Region 15 Chairman Mr. Yoshiharu Akisada welcomed participants.

The judges were Hirosi Nakagawa and Nobumasa Takeishi, both from Ibaragi Pref.

After the running was completed the secretary announced Answer for You, pointer male owned and handled by Yoshiyuki Nagase of Gifu Pref., the champion. Runner-up title was withheld.

Answer for You is four years old. This  is his twentieth placement and third championship title, along with one runner-up placement. Answer for You is a great dog.

Answer For You was released at 7:03 a. m., braced with Struttin Pat. Both dogs were strong and constantly forward. For You showed on the left side and was in constant contact with his handler. He put down a wide race and searched good objectives, showing stability in his ground work. For You had mannerly finds at 8, 21, 43, 47, and one back. He ran an excellent ground race for the entire brace.

We were excited to be together to enjoy the running of this Championship.
