The last of the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust gundog funday heats was held at West Wycombe Park by kind permission of Sir Edward Dashwood.
The judges saw 118 competitors pass through their tests, making a profit of £640 for the GWCT.
The seven judges on the day were Sue Foote, Karen McCarthy, Colin Pelham, Toni Sanders, Marilyn Squires, Barry Taylor, Ron Taylor.
A great many thanks to Skinner's for their kind sponsorship and to the many helpers.
