Message from Ron Larwood
Field Trial Chairman and President of the Sudbury & District Kennel Club Inc.

Welcome Spaniel Enthusiasts,

On behalf of the members of the Sudbury & District Kennel Club, I wish to warmly welcome you to the 2018 Canadian National Amateur Spaniel Field Trial Championship.

The Sudbury & District Kennel Club was established in 1951 and is currently the only registered multi-breed club of purebred dogs in Canada. Club members host Spaniel Field Trials, Conformation Shows, and Trials in Obedience, Agility, Rally, Tracking, and Herding as well as training, classes and seminars. (Retriever section is currently dormant.) We also welcome dogs that are not purebred to participate in certain programs and events in our Obedience Section and Hunting Pointer Section.

As chair of this event for the second time, I am truly excited to be involved once again and to have the opportunity to play a role in promoting the spaniel breed and the associated spaniel field trials. Of course, a thank you must also go to all of our Dedicated, Hard Working Members who put their time and energies into the presentation of this prestigious National Trial. It is particularly noteworthy to also mention that the two youngest members of the gun team, Brodie McCaffrey and Jordan Cristo, are from our Club. At this young age they are still developing their skills but they have demonstrated the interest, ability and attitude needed to shoot at a national event.

Our sincere thanks are extended to the Sponsors, local and abroad, for their support of this unique event.

Thanks for being here, enjoy our Sudbury Hospitality, and make many new friends.

Have a great time, one and all! Good Sportsmanship to all and may the dogs perform to the best of their ability.

Ron Larwood
