The Dixie Open Shooting Dog Classic kicked off the field trial season in Bullock County with a draw of 38 pointers, 2 setters, and 1 German Shorthair. Greenway Sportsman Club was the venue, and although the grounds are limited to one course, they were nonetheless in beautiful condition and nicely accommodated the running of this trial.

The drawing was held on Tuesday October 25 at the Union Springs Golf and Country Club. The club's staff is always accommodating to field trailers and the events, and the staff made sure everyone in attendance was well taken care of.

Judges for the trial were Alan Atkins and Roger Key.

Second place went to Bully Rock, pm, owned by the Primm's and Ernie and Keren Saniga. Bully Rock was also handled by Tracy. Dakota Nation, pointer male, owned by Julie Roach and handled by Ted Roach was third place winner.

The Derby drew 13 pointers and 1 setter. First place was awarded to Calico's Sugar n Spice. This white and orange pointer female is owned by Calico Kennels and Jeff Smith. She was handled by Tommy Rice. Sehoy's Run Happy, pm, handled by Bob Hartwig and owned by Sehoy Plantation placed second. Tallokas New Business, Owned by Tallokas Kennels and handled by Jason Loper placed third.

Breakfast was brought in each morning and furnished by the Tourism Council of Bullock County. Ban and Allison Stewart had a delicious lunch each day during the running, and night time meals were provided by the Field Trial Club. Jan Green, the "First Lady" of Greenway Sportsman Club, was a gracious hostess and made certain that the bar was stocked with snacks and refreshments. Her famous Poppy Seed Chicken was the main dish on Monday night and Selena Moorer prepared her famous spaghetti for everyone Wednesday night. Steve Hutto was in charge of Thursday night's meal and treated guests with a delicious steak dinner.

The Sedgefields Field Trial Club appreciates everyone who stepped up to make this trial successful. Special thanks to Jan and Mike Green, The Bullock County Tourism Council, our Judges, wagon drivers, marshals, scouts, handlers and owners.
