SAFTC 2018


By SAFTC

The South African Field trial club, hosted its inaugural Team St Hubert event in Memel as part of it's 110 year anniversary. What a great event this turned out to be. 

Five teams of two handlers and two dogs competed for the title of Team St Hubert hunting champions for 2018. Each team ran two rounds of an hour each.

The event started on Friday morning with cold and windy conditions which continue throughout the day. The standard was set high with the first team having some good work from both handlers and dogs producing birds. The Saturday morning conditions where not much better - still windy with conditions improving later in the day. 

The judges give valuable feedback after the event to each contestant, providing constructive feedback, leaving you to work on what needs to be changed.

The event came to finalization on Saturday night with a lamb spit braai and prize giving. Judging by the feedback received this is going to be a very popular event in future.
