with Pee Wee Hunter Stakes

We had a lovely day for our 2013 WC/WCX with Pee Wee Hunter Stake! The field was a bit small this year (18 including the puppies) due, in part, to the success people had at the Specialty and the PVGRC WC/WCX the day before, but everyone had a great time. Six dogs started in the WCX and 3 qualified (1 Flat-Coat and 2 Goldens) and 8 dogs started the WC with 6 qualifying (3 Flat-Coats, 2 Goldens and 1 Labrador). And all 4 puppies did a great job on their marks and then got to meet some pigeons!

Thank you to all of the participants and congratulations to all of the qualifiers!

The Capitol Region's Spring 2012 WC/WCX test went very well. the Judges set up a nice test, the rain held off, the dogs all did fine work and we had plenty of volunteers to help out. Congratulations to all the qualifiers! In the Puppy Stakes, all the puppies did either wonderful, interesting or funny work but they all retrieved and everyone had a great time. Great Big thanks to our Judges Mario Cilia and Carol Lewis for setting up a nice test series and and our puppy judges Janet Boss and Betty Dust!

It was a sunny and chilly day On Friday, November 23, at Twin Ponds for our WC/WCX tests. Despite the chill, we warmed ourselves with friendship, fun, and titles to celebrate!

We are very grateful to Sue and Rodger Armstrong for the generous use of their property and all of Rodger’s hard work throughout the day. We also thank our esteemed judges Leslie Peszczynski and Bob Hux who did an outstanding job.

It takes a village as they say, and this event is no exception. Many thanks to everyone who volunteered their time and effort to make this day so successful – co-chairs Chris LeBel and Scott Borden, committee members John Bulger, Linda Reynolds (doubling as gun captain, too) and Rodger Armstrong. Test secretary Janet Ciarico, chief marshal April Senseney, Tina Borden and Sandy Bulger for hospitality, gunners Bob Kurtz and Rodger Armstrong and all the workers who volunteered throughout the day, many who were not running dogs. Your support and contributions are greatly appreciated!

We also thank the participants and pass along our hearty CONGRATULATIONS to the qualifiers!
