To everyone planning to attend the LCRC field trial in Vermont... Just posting a reminder that the hotels in the Morrisville/Stowe area fill up fast at the end of August so book early to get the best rates. The Sunset Motor Inn on Route 100 in Morrisville is offering 10% off their standard rates for the trial and are providing their weekday rates through the weekend - 800.544.2347. Please mention the Lake Champlain Retriever Club when you call to book.

We're trying to get more hotel deals and will post them if we do!

driving under a tree burning on power lines just down the hill from Kate's barn.

08-29-2011, 09:28 AM
No, bob willow & striker won the am. Newt and his dog striker won the open

Oops, congratulations to them all anyway!

08-29-2011, 12:50 PM
A million thanks to our judges for their understanding accomodation under trying circumstances. Scott Martin and Josie Ottman in the Open, Tom Hawley and Larry Anderson in the Amateur, Charles Bearden and Dennis McConnell in the Derby and Charles Bearden and Tom Ritchotte in the Qualifying. Hopefully, everyone has made it home safe. We came home to absolute devastation in our little village in Vermont.

Thanks to the extraordinary members of the Lake Champlain Retriever Club who worked so very hard, maintained great humor throughout, and who put on a well-run trial in a hurricane. Thanks to everyone in the retriever community who pitched in along the way.

Lastly, congratulations to the winners, placers, and all competitors. Water dogs indeed!

Wow Mark I saw some video of the flooding in Vermont and I can't believe it. I think Vermont may have been hit harder than NC and NJ where the hurricane landed. In one video it looked like the bridge in Quechee may have been destroyed, couldn't tell? I always thought Quechee was one of the coolest towns in VT. It looked like the river pummeled Brattleboro too. Hope you didn't get hurt too badly Mark.

Huge Congratulations!! Plourde`s Long Shot, "Maggie", Amateur JAM!!

..........Bob as well!! :)

Just 17 dogs back to the 2nd series! ...........GREAT job!!! She was sure "Running With the Devil" in that series!!

Well Done!


08-29-2011, 08:50 PM

The bridge in Quechee floated away, it's on youtube. We are close to Quechee, two historic covered bridges in our town were lost. One of them, nearly intact, ended up in a friend of ours front lawn. One of the two concrete bridges into town also washed away. Thought we were immune from this type of destruction. Still, everyone is OK and the spirit of cooperation is strong in a small town like ours.

Thanks for the good wishes!

Hope all is ok with you, Mark, Jennifer and all the retriever people..and all others as well, of course. Very, very sorry for that VT is going through :(

Thanks for the well wishes. While we have quite a lot of wind damage here in Northern Vermont, the devastating flooding is in Southern Vermont. Our thoughts are with Mark and Amy and everyone down there who are managing through the clean up.
