IGL Championship 2019


29/30.03.2024 International Field Trial of Guadalajara, Spain

1600Km x 2 (3200!!!!!), 3 dogs, 3 goals achieved, an a NEW FIELD TRIAL CHAMPION in the kennel.

Friday, the two youngest made us proud by both qualifying.

Elkshead Arran To Think Twice, aka Rooney after some very nice and difficult retrieves, missed a bit of luck at the end of the day, and got a GOOD.

Gunnerspeg Delta, aka Bonnie, owned and handled by Pieter, at her debut, didn’t lose the chance to prove her qualities, becoming 2nd RisCACIT. A very good start of her career.

Saturday, what to say, his name says it all; it was really a “One Man Show” day.

Think Twice One Man Show, aka Billy ran a very perfect trial, making all the retrieves look easy when they weren’t . With the win of today, Billy is our New INT FT Champion, the 12th between me and Pieter.

This title belongs to Billy and his qualities.

Thanks Reema

But credit goes to Pieter for taking Billy to such a high level and allowing me to have him in the last few months.

It is an honour to have made a new Champion at such a qualitative trial; magnificent but very difficult and technical terrain, an impressive quality and quantity of game, breathtaking partridge flights. Many thanks to Lucia and her family for their hospitality; to Luis and AELR (Aspciacion Espanola Labrador Retriever) for organizing this amazing event; to the judges Michael Corr, Billy Lundy, Adrian Costello and Ivan Lee for the fair judging.

Well done to Manu Cormier winner of yesterday and to Stef Bollen for his second place today.

Last but not least thanks to all the Belgian Team with who I shared these days, and the laugh, Pieter Vivijs Stef BollenEls Van den Bergh Frank Redant Hilde Matthys
