The National Amateur Quail Championship returned to the historic Dixie Plantation after an absence of two years to allow maintenance on the field trial courses. This trial is considered by many to be the creme de la creme of amateur trials. There was a collective sigh of relief by the field trial community when permission was granted for this trial to return to Dixie. Fifty-six were drawn to compete—55 pointers, seven being females, and one setter.
The tradition of the National Amateur Shooting Championship once again made its way to Camp Robinson Field Trial area. These two traditions kind of belong with each other, the finest amateur dogs in the country taking on the challenge of the famed grounds were the champions have run for more for more than sixty years. The excitement started with the National Amateur Shooting dog Derby Championship. The jewel for the young at heart got going in fine fashion.
