North Island Gundog Trial Championships 18th & 19th October 2014

Waikato Gundog Club are proud to announce that we will host the North Island Gundog Trial Championships this October at Karakariki Road, Whatawhata by kind permission of Graham Henderson.

Tahi Spinks will be Trials Captain and Christine Martin Trials Secretary.  Preparations are already under way and the schedule is out.  We have a full compliment of sponsors whose generosity has ensured that there will be some superb prizes up for grabs.

This is a very exciting prospect for the club and a big organisational challenge.  There are all sorts of routine errands and jobs to do leading up to and during the trials and we know that many of our members are keen to lend a hand. 

Please put the dates in your diary and contact Tahi  [email protected] if you are able to offer assistance.
