Super Storm Liz finished the fall 2020 campaign the way she started by earning 1st in the Amateur Derby at the USCSDA Northeast Region event held November 1, 2020. The Flaherty Field Trial Association grounds, in East Windsor, CT, are an historic venue where bird dogs need to reach for objectives if they are going to be efficient in their hunting. Liz did just that right from the start. Her first find was 175 yards to the front. The succeeding finds were also well ahead and in each instance Liz stood until her handler, Thor Kain, arrived and dispatched the birds. At the flush Liz stayed high and tight and displayed shooting dog manners in each find.
This is Liz’s fifth 1st place derby win this fall. We don’t recall owning a dog who recorded five 1st place wins in one season.
