Then all the marked dummies are retrieved by dogs, one of the dogs takes two markings, but not at the same time. One dog retrieves long blind from 7 (the area is hardly visible).

THE RESULTS

Congratulations to the winners and thank to all competitors, spectators and helpers for their participation in this year’s IWT at Konopiště. In extreme heat, the competition was difficult for everyone, so all performances of competitors deserve the admiration. We hope that all helpers who have had health problems because of overheating and have to leave their positions during the competition will quickly recover. Despite the losses in the staff the competition was successfully finished and we believe that you will have nice memories on IWT 2015.

2nd July 2015
We have provided the parking place for IWT that is mostly in the shadow. However, the weather conditions will be probably a bit extreme, so we get allowance from the hunting ground administration to enable passing with the car to the hunting ground instead of place on parking spot (only for those who have registred a reserve dog, because there is not enough space for the others). So they will be able to put the car in the IWT area, be closer to their cars and dogs and there is also enough shadow under high trees.

2nd July 2015
The last weather forecast indicates high temperatures during the IWT competition 30/31 °C, some forecasts are even up to 36 °C. Most of the places in ground and also waitings are among the high trees and there is no trouble to find a place in the shade. We will provide water for drinking of dogs on each waiting area and in the IWT Base point as well. However, please, be prepared for such weather.

1st July 2015
The Training area of IWT will be available from 2nd July to train there with your dogs in competition.

29th June 2015
We have been informed that some people discuss the condition of IWT that “teams shall not promote a firm in the same branch of business as the general sponsor”. The discussion results from the incorrect information claimed by representative of unsuccessful applicant of sponsorship on IWT 2015.

The rule formulated above ban only promotion, thus using intentional advertising and promotional tools and it doesn’t apply to any ordinary product produced on market by any firm and used by competitors.

Such condition is ordinary condition used in sponsorship of any business and the offer of unsuccessful competitor contained also the condition of exclusive sponsorship in the branch. The information originating from the competitor is a completion of violation the rules for unfair business in Civil Code.

We are very sorry that we must react and bother you providing this explanation when the information that you might “be aware that if you want to start on IWT 2015″ should come to you only few days before the competition. You don’t have to worry coming and using any products sold on market: cap, t-shirt, vest, bag etc. If you have any question, please ask only official source of IWT: info@iwt-retrievers.eu

We must agree with one sentence in the claim: Yes, somebody forgot it is about the fun! So please, don’t allow spoiling your fun and we are looking forward for a great days in the competition.

The organizers of IWT 2015

We react to this information:

Dear friends,

it’s very unpleasant situation for us, but please, be aware that if you
want to start on IWT 2015 in Czech republic, regarding conditions,
quote: ”Team members of national and free teams shall not promote a firm
in the same branch of business as the general sponsor of the IWT 2015.”

So, if you have any FIREDOG product – cap, t-shirt, vest or bag (or
product of any other company), you have to compete on IWT 2015 without
our products!

It’s ridiculous, but it’s the condition of IWT’s organizator.

We have prepared nice sponsorships (clothes and training equipment) for
some teams, which we are supporting for years, so it’s a pity that they
cannot use the clothes or training equipment for which they are used to.

Some people forgot that it’s all about the fun!

Anyway, we wish all the competitors a lot of fun and success!

Your FIREDOG-team
