The Chattanooga Retriever Club would like to thank:
Our Open judges Chuck Kimbrel and David Carrington. These men did an outstanding job of challenging a tremendous field of competitors. Chuck and David took a great piece of property and utilized it to its fullest potential.
Our Am judges Doug Trautman and Kyle Broussard. I overheard many of the trial participants commenting on the creativity and efficiency of each series. Doug and Kyle ran serious tests on serious grounds.
Our Qual and Derby judges Kip Kemp and Ben Sutton. They picked their spot, set their tests and made it happen. Kip and Ben took a gorgeous farm and knew exactly what it took to get the most out of their participants.
Scottsboro Boy Scout Troop 18. This Troop is celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2014 and this was their first ever outing as "bird boys".......we all hope it wont be their last!
Our land owners. You know who you are.....and no one else needs to!;)
Our Kick A$$ field of Participants. Our club knows you guys could have chosen to run anywhere this weekend. We appreciate you choosing to run with Chattanooga! We hope to see you all again in the spring.
Congratulations to our winners and our placements!!!
Big thanks to Kip and Ben in the Q. Only my third Trial but it is hard to see how any other could be run more effeciently than what was done on Friday. Called the wife after the third series and said, "I'll be home early". Wife responded, "I'm sorry it didn't go well." My response, "heck no!, I'm in the fourth. There Judges are on top of it."
That and they said nice things about my dog regardless of how he was running :-).
Congrats to all!! Way to go Bobby L. and Ken!!
