The Big Sky Field Trial Club announces that the Winnett field trial will begin Wednesday, 9th of May, 2018. The trail will start with the Open Shooting Dog followed by the accompanying derby stakes. The Region 14 Amateur Shooting Dog Championship will follow all of them. The sentiment was to allow the Open stakes to run first so the pros could run their dogs and depart allowing the amateurs to have the end, which will potentially be a weekend.
The landowners of the Winnett grounds have informed us that due to significant snowmelt, and the forecast for continuing precipitation through next weekend, the weather does not make it conducive to host the trial as scheduled. Consequently, it is postponed. There is a possibility that the trial might be rescheduled for the second weekend of May.
