Cancellation of MGS Novice Field Trial on December 8th

Dear Members,
As you know the Committee has worked hard during the current COVID crisis to organise field trials. After running two successful trials in October, we were intent on completing our season with a novice trial on December 8th. However after discussion with the Shoot and local authority, the committee has taken the decision to cancel this trial. We did consider postponement, however due to the congestion in the compressed shooting season caused by lockdowns, and ongoing uncertainties, it was decided rearrangement was not feasible.

The Committee would like to thank members for their support and wish everyone well for 2021. We are very much looking forward to arranging a full schedule of training, tests and trials in 2021.

Best regards
Midland Gundog Society Committee
