The money raised on the day amounted to £316.. of which a donation as named by Angela MIles of £150 went to Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association [Hazel Drew] Rescue. While the remaining £166 goes to WGDS HPR Group.

Amazing amount raised helped by entries/raffle/cake stall/scurry but with a difference!1 with both Handler&Dog being Human so a lot of fun & banter over this watched by many.

Trainers for the day.

Mark Spearing BWWGS.     Dave Buggins WGDS.

Fiona Wensley WGDS&BWWGS. Ray Davies WGDS&BWWGS.

The day was blessed with fantastic weather of blue skies and sunny warm day with a little varied winds during the day, as the 17 dogs were divided into three groups, with variety of breeds on the day, being Brittany,Italian Spinone,large Munsterlander, H.Vizsla, H.Wirehaired Vizsla. Kortla Giffon, GSP, GWP, Weimaraner.

The day started at 10.00am and ran until lunch at 12.30pm with each group training with each trainer during the day so after just over the hour would swoop around so having a broad giving of experience and knowledge from the trainers on the day, so all handlers went home with homework and pleasing faces having had a great day.

The ground that was used ranged from large expanses of different stubble fields, hedgerows, gateways and large rough ground areas to stimulate hunting liken a walk up day or trial.   Great banter over the day helped with the lunch provided by organisers and welcoming atmosphere, should that the handlers coming from wide areas of the uk, from Hampshire, surrey. South &Mid Wales and closer to home of surrounding counties a well worth day.

So the money raised was £320, dived between the two societies, that other days will be arranged in the future with  request from those attending.

So by 3.00pm all handlers and dog were ready for home..  Ray Davies, F.T,Sec

In 2009 I didn’t have a whistle, any green clothes and I had never considered getting a gun: however, we did have a 1 year old Hungarian Vizla who we had called Harriet, she was our pet dog. I thought I would take her to some gundog lessons and joined the WGDS. Ray Davies organised the training and showed us how the versatile gundog works in the field. My little pet dog was a natural hunter and both of us loved it – we were hooked. Making friends with local land owners and with the generosity of my boss I had access to land and the opportunity of rough shooting, so 6 months later I had a gun, green clothes and a new hobby.

I work in Evesham supplying packaging to fruit and vegetable farmers and produce packers. When not working I race and teach sailing. My home club is in Earlswood, Solihull, although I race all around the country.

As well as rough shooting, Harriet and I have had success at working tests and lots of prizes have been won on scurries. I was co-opted onto the committee in 2013 and hope to give the perspective from the view of a pet dog/gundog owner.
