Hubbard, Tex. — The German Shorthaired Pointer Club of San Antonio held its fall trial December 7-8 at the P-3 Porter Ranch in Hubbard, Tex. The course terrain is rolling hill country; mostly open with good cover and mesquite thickets and oaks. Thank you, Dickie Sorrell, for providing the excellent grounds and facilities.

The weather was brisk with cool mornings and warmer afternoons with intermittent gentle breezes.

Thank you to all the handlers for their participation and promptness to the starting line, and to everyone who helped to make this trial successful. All went smoothly, thanks to lots of planning and all the members who stepped up to help.

Alison and Heath Autry donated the use (and much of the driving on Sunday) of their mule for the dog wagon. In addition, Heath scouted for anyone who needed a scout, spending long hours in the field.

Jim Wortman handled a myriad of chores: planted birds, judged, lent horses, and shared his famous queso.

Chris and Shannon Yancy provided delicious pulled pork on Saturday, helped  cook steaks for Steak Night, and whipped up some delicious green beans.

Pat and David Rodriquez came to their first horseback field trial and drove the dog wagon all day Saturday. Patty Smithers, also new to horseback field trials, helped with the food and provided her delicious molasses cookies, potato casserole and jalapeno corn bread.

Peggy O’Brien kept things running smoothly and was a great help with getting meals served and cleaning up afterward.

This trial was dual sanctioned by AKC and NGSPA.

Purina area manager Greg Blair came through with dog food for the winners. Thank you, Purina!

A panel of five judges shared duties for three stakes and looked at 41 dogs.

Harvey Franco and Dickie Sorrell teamed up for the Open Shooting Dog. David Quijano and Jim Wortman judged the Amateur Shooting Dog. James Baker and Harvey judged the Open Derby. Their decisions were well thought out and well received. Thank you judges for sitting in the saddle and giving us your valuable expertise.
