The afternoon of Saturday 20th October has seen our Retriever Field Trial season come to an end for 2018.  On behalf of Usk Valley Officers and Committee, we would like to extend our thanks to the volumes of kind and generous individuals, who have voluntarily taken time out of their day to day lives to support our Club to ensure that we can host these events for you all.

The results of our Novice (AV) Retriever Stakes 1 & 2, plus the 2 Day (AV) Open are now available on the results section of our website and our Facebook pages.  CONGRATULATIONS and well done to all those who had a run and even more so to those who were awarded for their efforts.

THANK YOU to Colin Markey, Sean, Ross and the team of guns who allowed us to use their wonderful grounds in Sedbury and provided some great retrieval opportunities for the handlers and their dogs over the course of the events.

THANK YOU to Debra Bird, Jane Stenner, Sonja Forrest, Iris Wright, Johnny Morris, Craig Perry, Julian Price and Trudy Hillier who assisted both behind the scenes and before, during and after the events, supporting Nick in his first season as Field Trial Secretary. 

THANK YOU to our stewards, game carriers, caterers and volunteers.

THANK YOU to Skinners and BASC, who continue to provide support and sponsorship to the Club.

And last but certainly not least, a huge THANK YOU to all our competitors, members and non members who continue to support the Club and enter our events.  Without you, this would not be possible.

We wish you all a very successful season and look forward to seeing as many of you again as possible in 2019.

 Kind Regards
