Billericay, Championship Trial
Judge: JOAN BUNCE
Steward : Penny Bann
I would like to thank Essex 2000 for the invitation to judge CD at their Championship trial. Lynne Baker - Trials Manager and all the crew who helped, both at the base and on the fields. Great job - hard work - well done! Thank you Wendy and Jan for the food, much appreciated.
Penny was a great steward and really good company, and we were lucky to have good weather.
To all the competitors thank you for entering and I hope you enjoyed my test.
1st Louise Reynolds with SARAMAK DANCING DIVA (WSD) 93 - handled by Nick Boyce. Katie completed all the exercises with good attitude. Good square and retrieve, and the heelwork I'm not sure who had the best style, Katie or Nick. Well done and good luck.
2nd Sue Henderson with SUMAHA RAZZLE DAZZLE (FCR) 90.5Q. Good overall performance and a full mark S/A by Woody - straight to the point.
3rd Peter Lewis with BERRYTREE SASSY (LAB) 88.5Q. Sassy completed a full mark retrieve and a very good square, good control and jumps made sure of this place.
4th Sharon Webley with ARRANBANKS SPOTTA BOVVA (WSD) 88Q. Full mark square and retrieve, and good control. I understand that Sharon and Bovva haven't been in trials very long, but on this performance I am sure they will do well.
Also qualifying CDex.
Kelly Sear with JAFARE THYME TINGLE (Cocker Spaniel) 87Q. Brilliant retrieve and square by Tia, good control. A little dog with big attitude.
Ali Christie with BULLETPROOF BILL (LAB) 83Q. A good overall performance by Kester.
Pearl Rigg with FRONSAC KRUGER (GSD) 81Q. A good round by Rosco.
Congratulations to all the qualifiers and to those who didn't quite make it this time keep having a go. Good luck everyone!

Tracklayers: Mark Lewindon, Gary Martin, Angela Porter, Sue Ashby
Search Steward Val Ridge, Wendy Siggers
I would like to thank all the people listed above for the contribution that they made to the success of the TD stake at this trial. Each and every one of them did an excellent job which gave the competitors every chance to qualify in difficult conditions.
Tracks were laid on rolled plough.
The prevailing weather conditions seemed to determine the success rate. The best tracking day followed a day of rain which seemed to make the ground more receptive to the tracklayers boot.
After four days tracking we had thirteen qualifiers.
The C/A commenced with the speak exercise with the dogs standing on a flat bed farm trailer. This was followed by the sendaway and redirection and finally the agility.
At the end of the day we had six qualifiers
1st A Tohme with FURSDON TWYLYTE TRAMONTANO Weim( B) 204.5
2nd P Herbert with WT CH JOLLY JILL WSD ( B) 194
3rd P Beasley with GRELGANNA LEO of STARDELL BC (D) 191.5
4th S Bergh-Rouse with TOILERS TIMO at SARSWAY GSD (D) 190.5
M Robinson with TYTRI LACE of TRENTVALLEY BC (B ) 187.5
C Ball with CONNEYWARREN TUCKER BOX LAB (D) 185.
Congratulations to you all.
