East Windsor, Conn. — August 26th started our field trial season in the Northeast. Weather conditions were not in our favor the first two days. Thursday and Friday were hot and humid, in the high 80s, finally cooling down for the one-hour Amateur Shooting Dog Stake on Saturday and Sunday.

Putting on a field trial is no easy task. Thank you to all who helped put the trial on. Thank you to Tom Tracy, Alene Lavasseur, Kevin Joyce, Chris Catanzarile, Gene Casale and most of all Dave O’Brien and Dick Frawley.

A special thank you to Purina and Greg Blair for the sponsorship again!
