Brace & Open Stakes in Memel

Message from the President

Welcome Field Trialers and your pointing companions.

Congratulations and thank you for helping the SAFTC to make history. Our decision to get more involved with farming communities across the country is proving to be the right one.

To my knowledge this is the first field trial hosted in the Memel area and a special thanks must go to Memel farmer, Fielies Geldenhuys, who is very active in helping us organise all our Memel based events.

We are also re introducing the popular Brace Stake hoping that more field trialers will start training specifically for this event.

Thank you to everyone who has again spent numerous hours organising this event.

Thanks to our judges,learner judges and field stewards for your wonderfull attitude and for giving up time away from work and home.

To the field trialers. May all the work you and your dogs put in result in joy and spectacular work.

Good luck to all!

Frans Rosslee
