Another successful round in the BASC Chudleys Scurry League at The Myerscough Open Day and country fair.
The Myerscough Open Day and country fair played host to the latest round of the BASC Chudleys Scurry League on Sunday 11th June in Preston. The event is known as one of the biggest days out in Lancashire’s outdoor events calendar attracting over 10,000 visitors each year.
The gundog scurry saw both old and new faces and put dogs and handlers of all abilities through their paces, with many achieving some impressive performances.
On the first event of the day, J Clarke demonstrated superb handling skills in the multi pick up scurry with Kizzy, achieving a superb overall time of 46:39 seconds. Narrowly missing out on first place, T Bryant and Skye achieved an equally impressive result with his time of 46:92 seconds. Closely followed by T Linfoot with Bob finishing the scurry with 48:65 seconds.
In the pick and mix scurry, it was T Linfoot with Bob who stormed to first place achieving an incredible time of 18:09 seconds, with R Bunning and Jazz gaining second place with a result of 18:69 seconds. The winner of the first event, J Clarke and Kizzy backed up an impressive performance finishing third with a time of 19:53.
A little magic from J Gaynor and Merlin helped claim first place in the obstacle scurry with a majestic time of 13:62. T Bryant and Skye recorded a fantastic time of 14:04 seconds. A fraction of a second later, R Bunning and Drake produced an equally impressive result coming in third place with a close 14:10 seconds.
With all the action from Sunday’s competition producing some great viewing, the Junior obstacle event provided further entertainment. F Gaynor and Merlin claimed first place with an inspiring time of 7.28 seconds. A Johnson and Merlin also proved young handlers have certainly got what it takes to truly excel out on the field, producing an outstanding time of 7.35. Junior handler A Adams and Rosie continued the sub 8 second marker with 7.43 seconds.
BASC Game & Gamekeeping officer Alex Farrell: “This was the first time the BASC Chudleys Scurry League was held at the Myerscough Country Fair and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Excellent weather along with a good standard of dogs made for an entertaining day. We saw plenty of new faces many of whom had not even tried running their dog in a scurry event before.”
