HOFFMAN, N. C. -- The Pinehurst Field Trial Club in North Carolina, 106 years young, held its trial on the expansive grounds of the Robert Gordon field trial in Hoffman, N. C., January 7-8.
Weather conditions were cold but enthusiasm by those present were high as birds were plentiful on all six courses with multiple finds counted for each hour running.
Enough good cannot be said about these field trial grounds going back to 1955 being basically limited for field trial use from October to April. Yes we are most fortunate for our state to provide us and maintain these grounds specifically for our use.
The judging assignment for the All-Age Stake was handled capably by Calvin Curnette and Brian Ralph. Likewise, the judicial decision for the Derby was done by Mac Hilliard and Tim McClurg. All were attentive to each brace, setting a steady pace throughout the running. Their decision of placement was well received. Thanks to each of these sportsmen for their time and support in accepting this task.
Alford Wood drove the dog wagon and provided the coffee break, Alfords service is appreciated for all of his support in having each brace on hand as needed.
Mohawk Mill Jacked Up placed first in the Derby for owner-handler Gary Winall. This young pointer ran to the front with extreme range and not taking the easy footing He started big and finished big. Expect we will hear more of Jack in the future.
Second place went to Teacher's Little Tommy for Ray Joye. This stylish pointer was consistently hunting. He was credited with the only find, styled up on a limb find in the black jacks having good Derby manners at flush. Stoney Run's Jack placed third for owner Dennis Snyder. Jack ran big but not as consistent but showing desire and future potential.
The All-Age was won by Mohawk Mill Gangster for owner Gary Winall. Gangster ran course No. 6 in the last brace Friday. He had two up-front finds with a big race, an exciting and consistently to the front for the hour running.
Second place went to Mohawk Mill Knight Hawk for Gary Winall. Hawk was credited with two finds with a pleasing race but not ranging as consistently as the winner. Dennis Snyder's Stoney Run Joe garnered third place. Joe had one find and a back. His race was big but less in showing.
