WGDC Roughshooters' Trial 2015 - Results

27th April

Cemetery Road, Whatawhata

 Our annual Roughshooters' Trial was held in very wet weather this year.   Electronic release devices did not enjoy the conditions so shorter courses were the order of the day and clay shooting was sadly abandoned.   Many thanks to our hard working judges, hardcore competitors and indomitable committee who we hope could get home and dry in reasonable time.

North Island Gundog Trial Championships 2014

After a twenty year break from running official trials Waikato Gundog Club agreed to host the NI Gundog championships in October 2014. 

Fabulous new grounds were made available at Whatawhata and Otorohanga and the committee managed the organisational challenges extremely well.  The weekend was a successful one and we look forwards to running our next championship trials in February.
