Thank you to Hampshire WTS for inviting me to judge the WD stake at their Championship trial. Thanks to Jean for running this trial so efficiently and for her kind hospitality. Thanks to Jodie for being such a superb steward, chauffeur and great company. Thanks to the very experienced tracklayers, Paula, Barry and Arthur for laying the tracks perfectly. The food was excellent with Jacqui West, Mary Drewitt, Lindsey Poole and Lynne Watkins in the caravan kitchen. The meals in the pub in the evening were also excellent.
The weather was not very good for August with rain on three days out of four.
The helpers at Hampshire are very friendly and make judging there a real pleasure. Thank you for the very useful gift.

A special mention goes to Carline Ashford who tracked in the worst weather I have seen a dog track in - torrential rain, hailstones, thunder and lightening and only lost one mark on the track. Unfortunately Tauren found two articles in the square but he ate one of them.
Special thanks to my husband, John who looked after my dog and to Joyce Tibbetts (my vet) who treated her the week before so that she was well enough to come with me.
Thank you to all the competitors for making my time judging you so enjoyable. Good luck in future trials.

First a big thank you to Hampshire for the invitation to judge at one of my favourite trials. Jean Howells is a superb Trials Manager leaving nothing to chance so thanks Jean for your hard work, hospitality and good company. Her back up team is also excellent, so thanks to everyone in the Hampshire team, especially Jackie and Mary who feed the multitudes with a smile on their faces.
The TD helpers out in the fields were fabulous doing a grand job in the horrendous weather conditions we had in August! So thanks to Melvin, John, Lindsey, Linda and Mary for the tracks and Gary for stewarding the squares and C & A.
The 13 teams that qualified the nosework should be proud of themselves, all had to work in difficult conditions but handlers and dogs showed great determination to get to the end of the track. Many other teams that didn't qualify worked well and had very honest, hard working dogs that I was proud to be able to watch.
I was able to set exactly the control and agility round that I wanted to in the field provided and we ended up with 9 qualifiers out of 13 at the end of it, with some very nice rounds that were very satisfying to watch.
The winner was excellent throughout and had been the first nosework qualifier of the week on the Tuesday in very hot conditions. In spite of winning an obedience CC a few weeks before Jane and Robbie came out and did a very tidy Working Trial's C and A round.
1st Flynntastic Winin Venture WSD D Jane Webb 207 Q
What a super team, congratulations on winning the CC and the very best of luck at the KCC's 2005 and Crufts 2006!
2nd W.T. Ch. Jolly Jill WSD B Pat Herbert 206 Q
What can I say about this team that hasn't been said before. Did the track like it had just been laid on lush grass instead of stubble, the fastest sendaway as usual and very tidy heelwork! Brilliant!
3rd W.T.Ch.Styperson Briar Lab B Sheila Tannert 203.5 Q
I love to watch Sheila work her girls, keen, yet tidy work throughout and I wrote on my pad after the track, beautiful handling. Well done!
4th W.T.Ch.Styperson Tern Lab B Sheila Tannert 201 Q
3 and 4 with both girls when the going was tough, another lovely round with Heather.
