GWFCRC Fun Day October 24, 1998

The Flat-Coat Fun Day is an event put on annually by the Great Western Flat-Coated Retriever Club. There are puppy and "big dog" activities at this event. This year Chase (Sterling Omega Count On Me) was 'our star'. Chase won the Hot Dog Retrieve, was the fastest in the Bumper Retrieve, and was on the winning relay team for the Wet Tee Shirt contest. Java (Sterling Omega Expresso, 5 mo) and Reba (Evensong Jazz Festival, 4 mo) both won their classes in the puppy recall.

The Hot Dog Retrieve
In this contest the dog must retrieve a hot dog without eating it. Only four dogs made it past the first cut. It wasn't planed this way but, left to right, the first 5 dogs are all Sterling and/or Omega or dogs.
