Tracklayers Jill Carruthers, Mick Cammidge.
I would like to thank ASPADS for the appointment to judge WD, Roy for the organisation and all other helpers.
I had two excellent experienced Tracklayers in Jill and Mick, Thank you. Everybody qualified the square thanks to Ann who laid them meticulously. Notorious Aberford took its toll and we had just two qualifiers.
1st Q187.5 Mr Doug Shearer with DREAGANTA DONN BC.D83/20/35 An experienced Handler who got the best from this little dog, a lovely square secured the No 1 spot.
2nd Q168.5 Mrs Jane Douglas with SHADOWQUEST AREBA GSD B 82/20/26. A really bouncy GSD - well motivated, should do well in future.
3rd NQ Mrs. Yvonne Filleul with SODEN JAY WSD D. Once settled into the track was steady and accurate.
4th NQ Mrs. J Olley with NEWBOROUGH SNOWDROP WSD B Dolly cut out a sizeable chunk of the track. I understand you qualified the control (if only!)

Tracklayers : Malc Snowden, Nigel Hines
Steward : June Hines
Many thanks to ASPADS for the invitation to judge the TD nosework. Thank you Roy for running an excellent trial, and Jan Darby for doing a brilliant job in the base ensuring everything ran smoothly. To my tracklayers Nigel and Malc and steward June, thank you. The trial ran over 2 days and the weather apart from some early morning rain on Sunday was brilliant.
The tracking as is usual for Aberford was on stubble and proved too difficult for some dogs, this was the first time that some dogs had worked on this. All the dogs made a good attempt and 5 were qualifying after the nosework. At the end of the trial we finished with 2 qualifiers.
1st Mr. D. Waite with DUNNSLAYNE BLUE OMEN (WSD) 195.5 Q. One or two sticky moments but came through. Well done Dave.
2nd Mrs. J.L. Meed with LITTLE JODIE (GSD) 194.5 Q. The dog worked really hard and June was delighted with her, again well done.
3rd Mrs. M. Hardacre with TARNDALE TAG (BC) 198.5 NQ. Tag did an excellent nosework round but went out on the control.
4th Mr. F.L. Campbell with WHILEYS MOONBEAM (WSD) 179 NQ. Finn made the track look easy but again unfortunately went out in the control.
Many thanks to all the competitors who entered under me and good luck to you all in future trials.
