The 2016 Tux North Island Championships have now all been completed and the results are on the website and have also been e-mailed out. Congratulations to all the winners and place getters. The Taranaki Centre did a great job of running the championships and they are all to be congratulated for their efforts. If you missed the dog trials on TV3 on their "Story" programme, this can be watched "On Demand".
We now look forward to the 2016 Tux South Island & New Zealand Championships which are being hosted by the North Otago Centre at Omarama. Both heading and huntaway events start on Monday 30th May and it is estimated that they will be completed by Saturday afternoon (this will be confirmed during the week of the trials). Spectators are welcome to come along to Omarama and watch this event. Look out for the Tux signs which will take you to the trial grounds. Address for the trial grounds is Omarama Saleyards, State Highway 83, Omarama.
