Field Trial Report

Farmer Sportsmen’s Field Trial Club

Jack's Rockin Rocco Second in the Amateur Shooting Dog Stake

Ionia, Mich. — Our annual fall event ran as usual over the courses at Ionia on October 5-6. We enjoyed a nice entry and things went smoothly after a short rain delay on Saturday.

Ed Hart returned in a new capacity as judge following his many years of successful competition as our local trainer.

Blake Rizzo soldiered through for us while dealing with family illness. We sincerely thank them for their time and efforts. Thanks also to April Raber and Jim Cipponeri for watching our Amateur Derby event.

Members Bill Branham, Bill Klenner, and Chris Cagle, Jr. and Sr. work well together and tended to all chores trial related.

The Haggis team showed up with another fine performance in the Open Shooting Dog. Perseverance paid off for the Cagles, Bill Branham, and Joe Guzman (fresh off the prairies), with multiple placements.

We all enjoyed lunch together in the clubhouse and a well-attended “bring your own steak” cookout on Saturday evening.

We hope to see everyone at the DeLuca Classic in the spring.
