I made my 5th trip out to Broomhill, Manitoba this summer and again photographed much of the Manitoba Championship and Pelican Open All-Age Classic. Hot and dry weather conditions during the trials following this year's wet spring made for tough scenting conditions.
Never-the-less, some great prairie all-age races were put down. It was fun having Travis and Jenny Gellhaus and Shannon Nygard there. Last time I saw Travis was in Marienville at a grouse championship. I saw Shannon in March at the Alabama Open Shooting Dog Championship.
Hunter Gates once again manned the grill at the dinner the entire Broomhill community is invited to. The steaks were perfect. Even better was the fish fry at the Gates camp!
Thanks to Mazie and Colvin for putting me up at the Hilton and everyone there for putting on such a class event. I look forward to William Smith's report in the American Field.
