Tennessee Open SD Championship Winners

DANCYVILLE, TENN. -- From January 18 to January 20, the Tennessee Open Shooting Dog Championship was held at the West Tennessee Field Trial Club grounds in Dancyville, Tenn. This competition had 28 entries; 23 pointers and 5 setters

Chris Sellers from Selmer, Tenn., and C. W. "Bud" Moore from Toronto, Kan., judged all three days.

Weather was on everyone's side by staying in the 50s. Usually this time of year, thick mud is always present, but this year, the dry grounds allowed everyone to enjoy riding and competing.

Thank you to the landowners that helped the trial to continue; Bill and Allen Currie, Blake Kukar, Dr. Gene Spiotta, Skip Taylor, Larry Humber, and Rich Boumeester. Thank you to John Butler for supplying the birds. Thank you to Purina for sponsoring this trial. Thank you to Bill Currie and Chris Mullins for driving the dog wagon and the horse trailer.

Thank you to Gene Spiotta for preparing delicious fajitas for dinner. Thank you judges, Chris Sellers and Bud Moore, for judging this trial.
