Photo Galleries of FT Stakes

Photo collections for each stake can be viewed by opening a LINK TO THE PDF VIEW SHEET for each stake below. These are copyright protected - please do not copy from the PDF View Sheets - that would be illegal AND you will only obtain poor quality photographs this way. Best possible quality and full size (>20MB) digital copies each photograph can be purchased at very reasonable price and by purchasing it legally you will support the LRKC. Cost for the first photograph is R20 for Club Members and R25 for non-club members. In contrast to a bar service, ordering doubles, triples or a whole crate will save you - if you are a member of the LRKC, doubles will cost R35 and triples R50. Thereafter, the 4th or more photographs will cost R10 for every additional photograph. For non-members two photographs will cost R45, 3 will cost R65 and thereafter R15 for each additional photograph. It may therefore be worth your while to become a member of the LRKC if you are not yet a member! We have lots of photographs of previous years' LRKC FTs, as well as the 2016 Champions Stake. Please support the LRKC also in this effort. The View Sheets are large documents and will take time to open. If you experience any difficulty to view, please contact Renier (082 604 5836 / renier@labradors.co.za).

How to order photographs of the LRKC Field Trials 2017:

1. Open View Sheets from the links provided below for each Stake

2. Note the number/s indicated below each of the photographs you want to order in an e-mail to Renier (renier@labradors.co.za)

3. You will receive an invoice (see costs above) with account details for payment directly into the LRKC account.

4. Once proof of payment has been received, photographs will be made available via a cloud account for easy download directly to your own computer. You will receive an e-mail with link and password to download the photographs you ordered - no need for memory sticks, CDs or waiting until we see each other again!
