2019 Continental Field Trial at Dixie Plantation

Dixie Plantation and the Continental Field Trial Club were proud to host the 124th running of the Continental Field Trial in late January — the 83rd consecutive year the trial has been held at Dixie. An entry of 48 derby and 71 all-age dogs made for a good field that took 12 days to complete. Congratulations to this year’s winners (see photos). A special thanks goes to the Continental Field Trial Club board members led by club president (and Dixie Plantation manager) Randy Floyd. Thanks as well to the many sponsors, donors, and volunteers who help make the trial a success, and to the Dixie Plantation staff that spends two weeks out of their busy year consumed by the activities of the trial. We greatly appreciate the auction donors, bidders and winners. Thank you to Julie Livingston Ripley for donating the raffle gun and thanks to all who bought tickets.
