The Region 17 All Age Championship announces a change in one of our judges. Dr. Pat McInteer is unfortunately unable to ride due to a recent hip injury. Dennis Brugess from Iowa has graciously agreed to fill in for Dr. McInteer and join Greg St. John from Kentucky in the saddles.

Also, John Harmon owner of last year's Region 17 AA Champion will be hosting a reception for all in attendance on Thursday evening prior to the first day's running on Friday November 19.

All entries to Joe Worsham or Rodney Shoemaker. See American Field October 16th issue for further details. We are looking forward to this renewal on the time honored (Can it really be 60 Years?) prairie grounds at Onaga, KS. Come join us

CH Coveyrise's Offlee Amazin

The NBHA National Amateur Championship finished up Sunday, October 31st with an eight dog second series.  Emerging as Champion was Hobbs Silver Belle, lightly built pointer female owned and handled by Oklahoman Keith Foreman.  Belle had a very solid first hour with multiple broke finds to make the callback from the 26 dog starting field.  Her final hour demonstrated her rapport with her handler and excellent hunting skills rewarded with three finds in very difficult scenting conditions.  Belle was defending the title she earned last year at Dolan Lake inIllinois.  Gailen’s Lotto Kipp, nice moving pointer male owned by Gailen Cooper and handled by Shannon Shields of nearby Reading, Kansas was named runner up after two exceptionally strong ground efforts and the best find of the stake in the final hour.  This was Shield’s first placement in a championship trial and Kipp’s second.  The other finalists in the order of running were The Valedictorian, SM for owners Bob Caffey and Robert Dardenne handled by Robert; Greypointe Gladiador, PM for Doug Meyer; DuMore Jody B, PF for LG Barnard; Lady Victoria, PF for Keith Foreman; DuMore Gigolo Cruz, PM for Sean Snyder and Labur’s Gone Country, PM for Illinois sportsman Larry Burgard.
Judges Don Kimble and Chuck Maxson evaluated both one hour performances to determine the eventual winners at Scott Crawford’s beautifully groomed Tallgrass Farm south of BaldwinCity.  Purina hosted the trial along with TriTronics and Christie’s enterprises in support of the Stranger Creek and Eastern Kansas Field Trial Clubs.  A Friday night cookout on the grounds and excellent lunches were highlights.

We had a great Futurity today. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Our judges were Jeff Crum from McDonald,PA. and Jeff Mahaney from Alton ME. reporter/stakes manger was Lloyd B. Murray of Stark, N.H.

The wheather was more or less what you would expect this time of year in northern New England, cool, a little rain and snow mix and some sun.

The third place dog was Long Gone Zenna, English Setter female, owned by Todd Kalter AND Lloyd Murray and handled by Dave Hughes, she was bred by Long Gone Kennels.

Second place was English Setter male, Impact Player. He is owned by Dick and Helen Brenneman and Bob and Janet Watts. Joe and Pam Dahl of Bangor, Maine were the breeders and Dick was the handler today.

First place was awarded to Fernwood's Cove Bella, English Setter female owned by Jimmy Gill of Harrison, Maine and handled by Maine pro Joe Dahl. Bella is a litter mate sister to Impact Player which was bred by the Dahls.

We would like to thanks all the breeders and owner who came up for this event. Purina came up BIG and as always we appreciate their efforts.

A complete report will follow in the American Field.

Thanks again

Thom and Joanne Richardson

Caladen's Sawmill Struttin', a pointer male handled by Mike Tracy and owned by Ross Callaway and Echo Plantation, earned the blue ribbon at the 2010 New England Open Championship held Oct. 18-20 at Harry Townshend's Ragged Hill Farm. The pointer had seven finds and a powerful race for the win.

Runnerup was Great River Ice, a pointer male also handled by Tracy and owned by Great River Kennels. Brian Sanchez was in the gallery to watch his pointer run. Ice earned five finds and also had a strong race.

Honorable mention went to Mt. View Decision Maker handled by Jeanette Tracy; Chasehill Molly, owned and handled by John Stolgitis; and Ragged Hill Danny, owned by Harry Townshend and handled by Bruce Jacobs.

We were able to get 8 braces run today. However please note that because of two scratches one in the 7th brace and one in the 23rd brace the dog from the 23rd brace was brought up to run in the 7th today thus brace 23 no longer exists. And all braces after that 23rd will move forward so be sure to re figure your brace time and day.
Here is an unofficial list of dogs who pointed birds today.

Izzy: 2 woodcock
Quail Trap Sadie: 1 Woodcock
Neddle Point Tiger Lilly: 2 grouse 1 Woodcock
Grouse River Sheena: 1 Woodcock
Land cruiser Rain: 1 woodcock
