  • Sad news. On Wednesday November 12, the Field Trial community lost long time field trialer and supporter, Orley Hamilton. Among his accomplishments over a long career in field trialing, Orley judged the 2001 Canadian National Amateur Retriever Championship in Bradwell, Saskatchewan and was currently paaionate about writing his book on the history of the retriever game. Our condolences go out to his wife Pattie and family.


    (Dec. 5 2001 - Nov.10 2014).
    Our thoughts are with you and your family, Scott. What a ride it was.
