Many thanks to ASPADS for this judging appointment. Also to Joyce Rae and Pam Cuthbert for organising the trial along with their merry band of helpers – the usual suspects, who form a well-oiled team. And a big thank you to all those named above.
Tracking was on stubble, generally quite bare, a couple of fields having some growth. Weather was relatively good for the time of year - some early morning fog, but generally damp and overcast by the time we started.
18 entered, 17 worked, 7 qualified nosework, 4 qualified overall
1st Mike Williams with MARINA BEN’S PAL, X-breed, B, 207.5, Q. Consistent performance, only losing minor marks throughout. Nice to see the more mature lady in Mike’s stable taking the honours.
2nd John Gray with WAGGERLAND WELLS, WSD, D, 197, Q. Haven’t seen John out and about for a while, but George proved he enjoyed being back in the game. One sticky moment on the track made us all hold our breath, but once this was overcome, put in a sterling performance.
3rd Mike Williams with TADMARTON ELEANOR, Lab, B, 190, Q. Tara gave her all on the track and I’m sure a lot would have given up, but Mike stood his ground and let her sort it out. Best control round of the day.
4th Lorna Cottier with STARDELL MARS, BC, D, 182.5, Q. Young dog putting in a sound performance, just needing polish, which I’m sure Lorna will be applying!
