The South Carolina Shooting Dog Championship was held at H. Cooper-Black field trial grounds from December 5-11, 2022. A lot of changes occurred if an effort to improve this trial. Long time President and Chairman Roger Duerksen retired and was replaced by Mac Stidham. Lawton Huggins, Sec. Treas., transferred to a new job in Union Springs, Ala., and was replaced by acting Sec./Treas. Roger McPherson. This formerly three course trial was changed to a one course trial for various reasons in the hopes of making the trial fair for all participants. Sponsors were found for all of the dinners. Live music was provided by Mac's combo the "Liverpudden", a country -western group which feachered Mac as the soloist. The music was quite good and Mac had a good voice.
Sponsorship was provided by Purina and we appreciate their steady and long term support. Last year's winner, Miller's Heat Seeker, owner's M. Primm and others provided the Handlers Dinner. Cindy Prescot and Mellisa Thomas stepped in to provide dinner Thursday night. Ben Whittenton and his company Southern Pines Land and Timber provided for a full day's running and Tuesday night's dinner.
