FT/HT Qualifying Matches Completed!

The PNWGSC completed their final qualifying field matches on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at Scattercreek Wildlife Recreation Area near Rochester, WA.

Match Secretary, Amy Lutz organized a great event with Chair, Frank Elduen.

Frank and Bruce were the fabulous bird planters.

First Place in the Field Trial went to Gordon Setter "Rhett", FC/Can FC Someday's On the Edge. Third place went to English Setter, "Ike", FC Stirling's 5Star General JH.


There were no qualifiers in the Hunt Test. Several club members took advantage of the opportunity to try their Gordons out in the Hunt Test for the first time. The conditions weren't optimal for bird scenting, but they had a great time nonetheless.

Pending AKC acceptance, the field portion of our bid for independence is completed.

Thank you to all the members who were instrumental in this achievement.
