Bandera, Tex. — February in south Texas is a great time of the year for field trials and to be in the scenic Hill Country around Bandera is a “darn fine time!” For the second year, Gordon Setter enthusiast Ms. Lynne Barnett invited setter field trialers to her Middle Verde Ranch for spirited competition, great camaraderie, and a wonderful gathering of setter friends.

Hosted by the Sunbelt regional club of the Gordon Setter Club of America, the three-day event was another great success with 71 entries, five stakes, and well-earned placements for dogs from each of the three breeds.

Many thanks to chair Lynne Barnett and the committee, and our judges Dickie Sorrell, Charlie Collier, E. J. and Kim Hall, and Cindy Findley.

Our thanks also are extended to Greg Blair and Purina for their contribution of dog food, and to SportDog and our good friend Jim Morehouse who donated a collar for fundraising.

Trials featuring “setters only” are few and far between. This event showcased Gordons, English, and Irish setters from across the nation. Following the placements, one of the judges enthusiastically remarked, “Many of these dogs will be competitive at any venue, at anytime, and against all comers!” A good time was had by all and we look forward to gathering again in 2021.
