Round Pond Field Trial Club Round Pond Amateur Shooting Dog Classic
By Kim Harrell
The 2017 Round Pond Amateur Tshooting Dog classic was held in Leslie，Ga.
The trial was delayed by a strong storm system moving through the Southeast.
Wth this storm system came devastating winds， tornados and heavy downpours causing several scratched dogs. Total time delay was one and a half days， pushing the trial over into the following week. Round Pond was very fortunate to escape without any heavy damage.
Judging this year's trial were Tracy Swearingen and Steve M/iley.
The two judges are well known for their knowledge of bird dogs and the sport of field trialing. Both judges were very attentive and gave each dog a good look and fair chance to emerge the winner.
