Crich, Open Trial
UD, WD, TD Stakes
Judge: Nick Williams
Track Layers: June Hines and Joan Snowden
Square and C/A Steward: Janette Sayer
I would like to thank the Hucknall and District CTS for inviting me to judge, and also the trials Manager, Cyril Barke, who ran an excellent relaxed trial. Thanks also to June and Joan for their excellent track laying, a splendid job well done, and to Janette Sayer, my steward, with me for 3 days, never put a foot wrong.
We had 3 lovely, mainly sunny days, with the usual high winds, which made tracking, which was on grass, difficult at times. There were 28 entries, 26 ran, and 15 completed the track in difficult conditions.
1st Mrs D Cotterrill with SANDYS OAK, Lab, 188, Q. Simba is a 23 month old Lab; it was a pleasure to watch him, he made every thing look easy. Best of luck for the future.
2nd Mrs F M Atkins with BLEDRI OF STEPASIDE, WSD, 183, Q. A very good all round performance from Merlyn and Fran.
3rd Mrs A Clarke with BAINHARD YASKO, GSD, 170, Q. A good all round performance, but unfortunately Coppa missed one article off the track.
4th Mrs C Davis with WESTMIDS INDY, GSD,165, Q. A full mark send away from Indy.
Mrs J Paul with KENMILLIX I AM YOUR MAN, GSD, 161

Steward: Jenny Olley
Thank you to Hucknall and District CTS for the invitation to judge. Thanks to Cyril and his hard working team, and to my tracklayers Jim and Malc, and my steward Jenny, thank you for working so hard over the 3 days and for being such good company.
With 23 entries, TD ran over 3 days. All 23 teams competed, 14 teams qualified the nose work, and there were 9 qualifiers overall.
Tracking was on grass. I set a track which could be adapted to fit the shape of the fields. The weather was kind to us with no rain or snow, and I enjoyed watching all the teams work.
1st Doug Shearer with DREAGANTA ALPHA CENTUARI, BC, B, 217, Q. What a team! Just a blip on the track cost a few points, but with 3 articles and a full point square, and finishing off with the only full point C/A of the competition, they were the very worthy winners.
2nd Sara Royle with POLLGINA MICHELLE SO GENTLE, Lab, B, 209, Q. Good nosework with 3 and 4, followed by a competent C/A.
3rd Yvonne Carpenter with HEX AT CARFELD, BC, B, 201.5, Q. Nice nosework, with 2 and 4. Full point jumps.
4th Carole Hall with PENRITH NELL, Lab, B, 201, Q. Powerful, enthusiastic dog - it would be fair to say this dog takes Carol’s breath away.
