Judge: CHRIS BROOKS

Steward: Evalina King
Thank you, Andy, for inviting me - the weather was unseasonably warm and delightful, the fields were good and the base superb. Thanks also to my steward and tracklayers for laying every square and track as though it was for their own dogs.
About half the competitors did tracks which were a pleasure to watch but there was only one full mark square • many needed work on holding articles (see Hadley's Way, Jan. issue!!I).
Congratulation to the following on their success:
1st. Ruth Cahill and ARNCOURT FANTASY (GSD)
182 points Steady sure track 93 + 15 + 3 from the square 26.
2nd. Ruth Payton and KALIAZAR KHALIFA (WSD) 177.5 points After an uncertain start not helped by a pheasant, went well when settled 88 + 15. Square 25 • 3 articles.
3rd. Sue Martin and MOONWINDS ANSCHI (GSD) 177 points 'Nervy' start but improved as
went along 89 + 15. 4 from the square but a bit of a 'butterteeth' ·30,
Mrs. J. Lockyer and WAGGERLAND COLOUR CODE (WSD) 176 points Pity about the missed bit of
track because the rest was almost faultless. 74 + 15 + 35.
Mr. M. Drewitt and ROMENO PRINCE APOLLO (GSD) 175.5 points 92 + 15 + 23
Mr. M. Featherstone and ANNIE LISAH (GSD) 175.5 points 90 + 15 + 24
