The Trunkey Creek 12th annual Dogpro Sheep Dog Trial was run in cool fine days and only a light frost on the first day. The merino sheep used were good trial sheep and provided by Rowen Matchett and The Ridley family both from Trunkey Creek and transported by Geoff Gilbert and John Parrington. The trial was judged by Michael Hudson from Dubbo.
The competition again was a very high standard and you had to get 93or better to get in the open final, our highest score for the weekend was 99. Congratulations go to Laurie Slater with Wondara Jewel who scored the 99 points also winning the open
The local was won by Peter Oxley from East Guyong who also came 2nd and John Parrington from Trunkey Creek coming 3rd
