2017 NSW championship
Judge: Ronnie Cooper
6 elimination runs over 2 days

DAY 1
We started with 22 dogs - 3 only from NSW , the rest from Qld and Vict. 16 of the dogs were already RT Champions - so a very strong field. We lost 2-3 dogs per run. And finished with 4. Congratulations to these four first class teams! Ronnie gave us a very well graded set of runs, that really put the dogs through their paces! Ability to mark well was always a priority. As was willingness to enter chilly water from a distance. There were lots of relocations that in theory might have disadvantaged dogs and handlers. But generally the dogs handled the relocations very well. There were no two-birds, no double falls, no double rises. No tricks, but very tight angles. The following summary is to the best of my memory and may not be 100% accurate.

1st run: watch 90m Mark at left at the top of the hill. Proceed with dog 20m down into a steep gully. Watch a second max distance mark shot at the far end of a gully. Get 1st Mark fr new location, (largely out of sight) then get max distance mark. Plenty of time given for each leg. (See Run 1 diagram)

2nd run: 2 marks thrown L to R left at treeline in medium cover. Blind dog behind car, proceed to first pegs and shoot blind. Judge very strict on not breaking the blind - sent handler back to replace a creeping dog. Call dog. Shoot 1st mark, proceed forward R and shoot 2nd mark. Send for L mark. Then challenging 120m blind through a distant dip to R of 2 marks. You could lose your dogs off to the right behind a hill and Gully. Last, get middle mark. All retrieves within about 75 degrees. P/u FAR LMARK, BLIND, LMARK. (See Run 2 diagram)

3rd run: Dog beside you 40 m fr bank of river, shoot blind angled across river 150 m away, walk with dog forward towards bank, shoot long mark (thrown towards blind) in heavy cover this side of river on the flat. Turn away from river with dog and go back to where you shot the blind from. Send for blind. Very tempting to go for mark, and not take the line to blind and its distant water entry. Send for mark from new location. No opportunity for Handler to work dog on mark. (See Run 3 diagram)

2nd DAY
NSW State Retrieving Trial Championship 2017
Judge: Mr Ronnie Cooper


Run 4: at the edge of a thick boggy, marsh, blind the dog, shoot the blind in the centre of run. Blind up far hill through thick swamp. Call dog for long mark thrown from far bank into thicker swamp, L away from blind. Turn 170 degrees for shorter mark to R into different cover thrown towards blind. Send for L mark, send for blind, send for R mark.(See Run 4 diagram)

Run 5: High above a river bank. Blind dog, shoot blind, call dog, walk-up mark to L across river close and temping. Immediately shoot 2nd time at "unsighted bird" = the 2nd blind. Proceed along high river bank to pegs. Send for 130m blind across river and into wooded cover well back from bank. Send for unsighted bird/blind to the left. The correct line was very challenging through a creek tributary with rapids (poison bird placed to L of line so unwise to run L bank. 30 degrees to R and close was the fallen mark) Pick up the short mark last, 30 m just across river. (See Run 4 diagram)

Run 6. Low at River side with a spit across the water in front of pegs: with dog, shoot blind. Then mid length mark thrown from spit towards blind landing in still water behind spit. 2nd long mark from R side thrown towards blind, landing nearside bank on land. 60 degree spread. Get blind in middle across the river in reeds on waters edge, get short mark, get long mark. (See Run 6 diagram)
