Special Thanks to partners and sponsors!
We can not organise an IWT or any other big event without the support of people. That can be helpers and judges who are out in the field for 2 days or volunteers preparing the event months in advance. But there are also people contributing financially, with a certain risk that their investment might or might not pay off. We would like to give them some more exposure so we will publish articles, special offers or short interviews with these people. Hoping they will continue to support our sport also in the future!

Koen Gouweloos is not only actively involved in field trial competitions, but professionally also runs Gouweloos Technique, a main contractor for (electro) technical project development. For the past years, Koen has been a very loyal sponsor to large field trails and International Working Tests, supporting these events financially over the past years so that the organization can keep costs low for participants and spectators, while organizing a professional event.
Time to ask this loyal sponsor why he is giving this financial support, while it is unlikely to expect that his company will profit from these “dog related” sponsorships.
“Since I was 10 years old, I have been involved in hunting. In the shooting season you can find me at least once a week hunting in the field.
Then the dogs came into my life, when I was 19 years I competed with my 1st wirehaired pointer. Then I changed to field trial labradors. I have had some excellent dogs. Around 2000 there was Anouk of Upperclaws, with whom I participated in the Nimrod, Fieldtrials and we joined the Dutch IWT team twice. More recently I competed with Dane of the Springcottage and we won the Dutch Field Trial Champion Title together. And participated at the IWT 2015
Hunting is the prime purpose of my dogs, but I support the field trial competitions and this discipline with my whole heart. Therefor I encourage this growing professionalism and I respect all the hours people put in voluntarily with organizing these competitions. To continue this development I have decided to support it financially.”
