Dresden, Ohio — The 2018 running of the NGSPA Ohio Championships began April 23 at the Tri-Valley Wildlife Area near Dresden, Ohio.

The grounds were in excellent shape for the running and the visibility was great for watching big-running dogs compete.

The German Shorthair Pointer Club of Ohio would like to thank our judges, Jack Alexander and Peter Coppens, Open Shooting Dog and Open All-Age; Diane Vater and Chuck Cooper, Amateur Shooting Dog and Open Derby Classic, for their full attention to the field. We appreciate their time in the saddle. Many competitors expressed their appreciation for their efforts.

Our successful trial was made possible by the many club members who contributed their time and talent. I would especially like to thank our secretary, Jen Sheehan, for her untiring dedication to the success of our trials.

Our bird planters, marshals and stake managers — Chris Young, Russ Roth, Scott and Ann Weslow and Brian Smith — did a terrific job of planting birds and keeping the trial moving. Russ had a fall earlier in the week but continued to help even with a cracked rib.

Several other members of our usual team were recovering from surgery.

Evening dinners of chicken, taco bars, burgers and brats were catered by Bill’s BBQ and enjoyed by all in attendance.

The Winners

In the Open Shooting Dog Championship, Chicoree’s Jake’s Bonnie, owned by Fred Ryan of Lima, Ohio and handled by Dan DiMambro, was named champion. Bonnie had five well spaced finds and a strong shooting dog race. Earning the runner-up title was J B Wagoners Lightning, owned by Lee Wagoner of Union City, Mich., and handled by Dan DiMambro. “Jackson” continued his winning ways by carding five finds and a back on his way to this placement.

Even though we had a number of top all-age competitors competing in the Open All-Age Championship, none were able to get the nod of our judges for the championship placements due to the variety of issues that can affect an all-age championship.

The judges of the Amateur Shooting Dog Championship had plenty of fine dogs to watch before naming Hi N’s Hasty Matilda, owned and handled by Hank Lewis of Louisville, Ohio, the winner. Mattie continued her winning ways by putting down a classy shooting dog race along with her impressive style. Chicoree’s Jake’s Bonnie scored again for owner-handler Fred Ryan as she had another outstanding race with multiple finds that the judges felt earned her the runner-up placement.

Winner of the Derby Classic and the Jay Ford Schneckel Memorial Rotating Trophy was Goodtime Cut’n W W All The Way, owned and handled by Bill Monk of Wellsburg, W. Va. Straitline’s All About Josie, owned by Laurie Brown and handled by Charlie Brown of Dover, Ohio, got the nod for second. Third was R S K’s Wildfire Marshall, owned by Gary Herold of Hanoverton, Ohio and handled by Robert Reynolds.

This year’s Derby featured exciting new prospects for future championships.
