Field Trial Report

Northern New England Brittany Club

By Sherri Thayer | Jul 11, 2018

Hill, N. H. — The Northern New England Brittany Club held its field trial on May 19- 20 at the Franklin Falls Flood Control Area in Old Hill Village, N. H.

The day started gray with clouds of spring black flies, but the predicted heavy rain held off most of the day with light showers in the afternoon. The heavy rain came in the evening and Sunday brought light showers clearing through the day.

We had a nice entry of 73 dogs in regular stakes with majors in two of the three adult stakes. We were able to hold all four juvenile stakes and a nice entry of 18 in our two non-regular Amateur Walking Shooting Dog Stakes for the special club trophies; the Stan Kosowicz Trophy on Saturday and the Ron Steven- son Memorial Trophy on Sunday.

The club offered donuts and coffee each morning. Club president Bryan Clark was our lunch cook on Saturday and club Secretary Phil Thayer took over creating an awesome chuck wagon din- ner and cooking lunch on Sunday. Many others helped with bird planting, road guard, cooking and Deb Blondin was invaluable as line marshal, as were Jim Rollins, Ben and Phil Thayer as bird planters. Thank you to all who helped.

Our judges were Mitchell Swierczyn- ski, Cory Roy, Mike Blondin, John Short, Patricia Carney, Jane Bjork and Art Hembrough for the regular stakes. Thank you for their long, wet hours appraising our dogs.

The Open Shooting Dog was won by Les Casselberry and his Contessa Del Prado. In the Amateur Derby, the Howard Lister and Lisa DeForest Memorial plaque went to Tania Lewandowski’s Bossum Call.

The Amateur Puppy was won by new- comer Daniel Braga and his Tigger. Rounding out Saturday, Judges Bryan Clark and Doug Phillips awarded the Stan Kosowicz Memorial Trophy to the NNEBC club member who placed high- est in the Amateur Walking Shooting Dog Stake, which was the second place winner Phil Thayer with Apollo.

Sunday started with the Amateur Shooting Dog win going to Keri Gelen- ian and High Hopes Roxy.

Mike Blondin and Green Mountain Lucy took the blue in Open Restricted Shooting Dog finishing her FC. Another newcomer, Jake Buchanan with his Brittany Major, won the Open Puppy and Tania Lewandowski won the Open Derby with Piper.

The final award of the weekend was the Ron Stevenson Memorial Trophy, which goes to the winner of the Sunday Amateur Walking Shooting Dog Stake, this year judged by Jim Rollins and Jeff Leggio and awarded to Phil Thayer with Apollo.

It was a good trial with good food and time with friends old and new, some just stopping by to say “Hi”. Of course, the dogs were the stars all weekend.

Thank you for entering your dogs and pitching in to help where needed. Hope to see everyone again next year.
