On Sunday 25June 2017, the Club held its annual RATG at the 4 x 4 Training Centre in Werribee, located on the Werribee river. This year we also included a Beginners Test. The weather was cool with a light breeze and no rain, perfect weather for dog trialling, even if the competitors felt a bit cold! We were again spoiled by our hosts the Emmins-Ferguson family with their great facilities and abundance of food and drink to keep us warm.
Our judges for the day were Mr Barry Kavanagh (Novice), Mr Rod Watt (Open) and Mrs Helen Pownall (Beginners). Many thanks to them and to Angie Bloomer, Bill Allen, Helen Bourke, Leanne Tormey and the various competitors who helped out during the day by going on the throwers when required.
