Burghley House Country Fair on 26th & 27th May 2019. 

Three Ridings Labrador Club were invited to run a 3 dog team at The
Burghley House Country Fair on 26th & 27th May 2019. 
This prestigious Working Test was superbly organised by the Lincolnshire
Gundog Society and contested by 15 teams.
Helen Burnie (left) Andy Brook ( centre ) and Alan Penny ( right )
represented the club and put in a great performance to take 5th place. My
thanks to them for representing the club so well. This seasons club caps are
available on the website!

The club will be entering the Chatsworth Country Fair, Team Gundog Working
Test on August 31st and September 1st 2019. The team has been nominated but
anyone wishing to be on the reserve list should contact me on 01765 620 421.

We are now in the middle of our summer season. Membership has passed the 500
mark and our training and competition events are being supported more
strongly than ever. Much talk on the committee grapevine about new venues
and events for 2020. Our one area of concern is getting enough people to
throw dummies. Our sport is very lucky to have judges who give their time
freely. It is embarrassing not to have helpers. If everyone who is fit
enough just gave half a day’s help we can plan and run more events for all
levels. If it does not happen we will have to start reducing the number of
events. It’s up to the members to display what you want!

3Rs has been invited by the Wensleydale Agricultural Society to run two
Gundog Scurry’s at the Wensleydale Show on August 24th 2019. Last year this
event was very successful and great fun. Anyone who would like to help on
the day will get free entry and time to take a look around one of the best
and most genuine Agricultural shows in the north. If you can help contact me
on the number above.
