Tickets will cost £5.00 for members and £7.50 for non members to include tea/coffee & biscuits and a sandwich lunch.

The booking form should be returned to Dorothy Gray by 16th August.
Gundog Training Day 2017
A club Gundog Training Day was held on Sunday 18th June on the Culter Allers estate by kind permission of Mr & Mrs McCosh. The day was organised by Lindsay Kinnaird and she was greatly helped by Linda and Peter Howson with Mollie Jones assisting with dummy throwing! It was a very hot day so the dogs enjoyed the stream running through the ground! The trainers Cammy Watts and Pat Robertson chose Hannah Higginbotham (Beginners) and Angela McConnell (Novice) as the individuals who had improved most on the day from their respective groups. Well done!
