CORONAVIRUS

In view of the continuing Covid 19 pandemic, and following discussions with the Scottish Field Trials Association Chairman, Wilson Young, we have decided to cancel this Summer's field trials at Tollishill Estate on August 8/9,and the Champion Stake at Byrecleugh Estate in the Scottish Borders on August 10/11,2020. We are indebted to the landowners and gamekeepers for along us to hold our sport on their moors. However, given the uncertainties surrounding travel to the area and availability of accommodation for competitors, Judges and spectators, it would be inappropriate to hold any sporting event at this time. We are still in lockdown. We hope that things will gradually return to normal in due course. As Her Majesty The Queen stated in her nationwide broadcast: "We Will Meet Again. Better Days Will Return."

The Scottish Field Trials Association is one of the oldest Gundog Associations in the United Kingdom.

It was established in 1907 and has gone from strength to strength since. The Association runs Open and Novice Stakes for Retrievers and Spaniels and Open, Novice and Puppy Stakes in Pointers and Setters. We now also runs HPR trials as well.

The Association also runs the Kennel Club Champion Stake for Pointers and Setters in alternate years. For many years this prestigious event was held at Lord Mansfield's Logiealmond Estate in Perthshire.

In recent years, the championship has been staged at Byrecleugh Estate, by gracious permission of the Duke of Roxburghe. For the future, we hope that members of the Association will enjoy the benefits of our new website. We will add results and news of all our sporting events throughout the year.
