Our big winner of the day was 5x Ch I’m Gabbie owned and handled by Bruce Anderson of Overbrook, Kansas. Gabbie finished looking as fresh as she did when she started on Saturday running a great brace. When she shows up without her “coat” she is ready to roll!
Gabbie completed her 1st championship on September 15, 2001. In the 2004 Regional Elimination she placed 1st Runner Up. She has earned a total of 5 championships.
4x Ch Tomoka’s Mendy Shades was 1st Runner Up. Owned and handled by Jim Gourley of Topeka, Kansas. Shades earned his 1st championship on October 17, 2000. Shades was our Runner Up High Point Dog of the Region this year! He is an outstanding competitor covering the field with determination and style.
1x Ch Southern Rep’s Dot was in the 3rd place spot. Owned and handled by John Mitchell of Wichita, Kansas this is a great pair of competitors!
3x Ch Sawyers Little Jewel was in the 4th place spot. Owned and handled by Bob Sawyers of Excelsior Spring, Missouri. Jewel has been on a roll in the region all of 2005 & 2006. She also tied to RU High Point dog of the Region and this placement was no surprise to any of us who have competed with her.
Honky Tonk Lily rolled into to 5th place showing that she is an up and coming winner in the Region. Owned and handled by John Mitchell of Wichita, Kansas.
2x Ch Big Delivery Fly finished 6th place. After just finishing up a bout with motherhood she shows that girls can get it done! Owned and handled by John Mitchell, Wichita, Kansas – somehow I seem to be repeating myself!!
A big thanks to all that competed and especially to those who helped make this a successful trial.
Larry Bailey for worrying over all the little details, all the boys from the Salina Club who had everything layed out for a great trial, our judges from Nebraska and the great job our bird planter Josh Weiand did! to all of those who helped run score cards, check totals, collect birds, fill bikes with gas and stay until the last picture was taken and especially all the great moments that goes into making a memorable trial!
