The 38th Annual All Breed Invitational Winners Trial will take place this Saturday,April 2. The event is hosted this year by the Columbia Game Club. The trial will be run at the South Cuyahoga Sportsmens Association grounds on Erhart Rd.,between W.Smith Rd. and Spencer Lake Rd. in Chatam Twp.,app.7 miles west of Medina town square. The trial starts at 8:00a.m.All runs are on chukar partridge. A field of 155 dogs will compete in puppy,derby, open and all-age stakes, in both pointing and flushing classes. Spectators are welcome. These trials are hunters trials. It is really something to enjoy the versitality of the breeds. In flushing class, there are probably more labs than any other breed represented. Labs, goldens,chessies,English springer spaniels and english cockers will compete for the coveted"Flushing Dog of the Day" honors. Even though most of you guys are waterfowlers, I think you would enjoy watching the flushing breeds go through their motions in pursuit of upland game. A vast majority of the competing dogs are both duckin dogs, and routinley hunted on pheasant, grouse etc.If pointing dogs are more to your liking,there will be a large field of pointing breeds to watch and enjoy. Again, a great opportunity to bring a young dog out on a leash and expose it to gunfire from a safe distance.Plus there's always a chukar or 2 available for a young pup to get a head full of hot bird scent!. Young dogs that will be hunted on public areas need to learn that they will be among other people, and dogs, and that manners are a must. The SCSA grounds have flush bathrooms, a kitchen available for lunch, adequate parking. If your suffering from cabin fever, and want to get out and enjoy some fine dog work, please feel free to join us Saturday,April 2.
