Flash Memorial Shield 2020
The final two All Age Retrieving trials for the WA 2020 season were held on Saturday and Sunday 15th & 16th August at two lovely properties near Crossman with kind permission of the owners Bill and Marnie Munday and Michael O’Neill. Despite a dismal forecast for the weekend we enjoyed two days of almost perfect retrieving weather with just a couple of light showers.
The assistance of all those who came along specifically to steward and everyone who offered help was greatly appreciated. Particular mention goes to Ian Molyneux, who is relatively new to the sport and ended up Chief Stewarding for both trials with guidance from Anna Courtman. Fantastic to have the newer handlers getting involved and helping out this season.
Our thanks to Marilyn Dawson who has turned out for every trial this year, rain, hail or shine to photograph our dogs in the field as well as the winners and grinners.
Special thanks to the amazing catering team extraordinaire, Sandra, Kelly and Bryan (SKaBs Kitchen) for their continued support and the delicious menus they managed to deliver at every trial this year, with additional sweet treats from Heather and Lisa this weekend and assistance from Sandra Graham.
