The Official 2006 National Coverage Thread

Postby Jason Ferris » Fri 01 Sep 2006 1:56 pm

Hi all

Please take a look at the new Australian Working Retriever Central 2006 National Retrieving Trial Championship page.

The trial organisers and I will use the new page and this thread to keep you updated in the lead up to the national, and as the trial progresses.

On behalf of The Working Gundog Club of NSW and Australian Working Retriever Central, I would like to wish all competitors in the National the very best of luck.

Cheers, Jason.

Hi Jason and Alan,

Well done so far. It is great to see you already starting the build up to the National. Having the photos of the site is excellent, thanks to NSW for starting that initiative last year. I am sure it wont help with training :!: as I haven't seen anything like that except in WA.

I undertsand the first of the retirees from the East have already arrived in WA. Joe and Jane Vella, Bob and Pam Tawton, Jack and Christine Lynch and John Palmer with sidekick Pauline Little headed West from SA last weekend. Queenslanders Peter and Jackie Duffy in the "wonder van" are also probably somewhere on the nullabor by now.

The first of the Victorian crew head west this weekend and more to follow next week. Those of us who are hard working :!: don't leave until just before the state.

Good luck with the National coverage!!!


Gareth

Two runs were held today. 36 dogs started (dog 37 Bob Tawton's "King" was scratched). 26 dogs successfully completed the two runs.

Run 2 was judged by Mike McClure and consisted of a double mark across water, one mark was a walk up.

The leading 10 dogs in catalogue order are:

Hi again

I have just put up a Day 1 report page at http://www.australianworkingretrievercentral.org.au/national2006/day1.htm. It includes a table with run by run progress for each dog.

I have also updated the pick-em spreadsheet and uploaded it at http://www.australianworkingretrievercentral.org.au/national2006/Pickem.xls. Not surprisingly lots of people have accumulated the possible 10 points on offer today, so no leader has emerged in the pick-em yet.

Cheers, Jason.

Hi all

The Day 2 report page is now up with details on runs completed today at http://www.australianworkingretrievercentral.org.au/national2006/day2.htm.

I have also updated the pick-em spreadsheet and uploaded it at http://www.australianworkingretrievercentral.org.au/national2006/Pickem.xls. Only two people (Kirsty Gray and Tim Cloke) have all five of their picks still in competition. There are several people with four dogs still in, so the bonus points for finishing and winning will make all the difference.

Good luck to the 13 competitors in the last day of competition.

Cheers, Jason.

Hi all

The Day 3 report page is now up with details on the final two runs http://www.australianworkingretrievercentral.org.au/national2006/day3.htm. Allan will provide more details to me tomorrow and I will update the page.

I have also updated the pick-em spreadsheet and loaded it at http://www.australianworkingretrievercentral.org.au/national2006/Pickem.xls. The winner of the Inaugural AWRC National Pick-em is Tim Cloke with the maximum possible score of 75 points - i.e. he picked the winner and had all five of his picks finish the trial! Tim please email or PM me your address and I will pass it on to the national committee so they can post out your prize!

Cheers, Jason.

Congratulations also to Mark and Wendy Davis, breeder of the winning dog. Kita is a litter mate of Swampy - the 2005 national champion. Definitely a strong performing litter!

Cheers, Jason.

Congratulations Russell and Kita :D

Kirsty


It goes further than the top five too. Russell Whitechurch's two other dogs also finished (what an achievement handling 3 dogs through a national!) making a total of 7 Victorian dogs in the finishers. The remaining finishers were 1 dog from NSW (Joe and Blackie), 1 from SA (Ray and Prize) and 1 from Qld (Georgina and Buzz). Overall a very strong performance from the Victorians.

Cheers, Jason.
