Big logistics task to run dog trials

The South Island sheep dog trial championships will be held at the Waitaki Collie Dog Club's trial grounds from May 9-13, drawing many of the country's top triallists.

With more than 200 entries in each of the four events, it is a major undertaking to arrange sponsorship and organise all trials activities.

It has been a big couple of years for the Waitaki Collie Dog Club, which held its 125th anniversary trials last year.

Originally known as the Waitaki Dog Trial Club, [the name was changed in 1889] the club held its inaugural trials on March 13, 1886.

It has the distinction of being the oldest dog trial club in the southern hemisphere and is believed to be the only club in the world to have run competitions every year since its formation. MORE>>
