Cliff NOC

Congratulations to the 2012 National Open winner, NFC FC CFC Salmy's Master Piece, "Cliff," bred and handled by Mike Wallace and owned by Frank Wiseman. Cliff was sired by FC Sandy Hill's Beau Geste (Digby), and his dam, FC Fawnhaven Misty of Salmy (Misty) also competed in the National.

Jim Keller and Alice Stewart judged the 2012 event, which was held at Pyramid State Park near Pinckneyville, IL.

Mike will be the first person to tell you that he couldn't have accomplished this win without the support of his wonderful wife, Julieann. Congratulations to all of you!
