About Me

My photo
A gundog natural instinct is to retrieve. Retrieving Trials provide a perfect avenue for these dogs to express their natural abilities, have fun and exercise. Our sport simulates hunting conditions where the dogs ability to retrieve is tested over various terrain and conditions commonly found in hunting scenarios. The dogs retrieve Dokken Dead Fowl Trainers (artificial game) from anything from dams or creeks to thick marsh or sparse paddocks. We strive to make our competitions a friendly and social environment where our competitors can not only compete whilst having fun with their canine companions, but also enjoy the comradery and friendships that develop with people of similar interests.

Hello Members,

Just a reminder that we will be holding a Retrieving Trial on Sunday 1/9/19. It is anticipated that this trial will be held at Brisbane Sporting Clays at Belmont. The trial will commence at 8.30am, immediately following the Draw.

Please remember to enter via our online entry form on our UFR Website or our WGAA National Website. Alternatively you can email your entries to wgaaqld@gmail.com
Payment can be made on the day of the trial.

Our Judges for this Trial will be - Test: Mr Rad Miramon, Intermediate: Mr Bryan Pritchard, Advanced: Mr Ron Jackson and Open: Mrs Helen Cattermole.

ALSO: Due to the busy workload of our UFR Committee and Members leading up to our Championship, and the working bees at our new shed, at last nights’ General Meeting it was decided not to hold a Meeting in September and also to move our August Training Day to later in the year. More info on the new Training Day dates will be advertised later on. Our next UFR meeting will be on 
 Wednesday 2/10/19 at the Brook Hotel Mitchelton at 7.30pm, meals available.

Hope to catch up with everyone at our Multi Level Championship on the 17th and 18th August. Best of luck to everyone competing and also thank you to all of the organisers and supporters.
