Thanks to Leamington for the judging appointment, and to Maurice Cooke for his efforts during the week, to the tracklayers and stewards for their help and good company in the fields. Tracking was on winter wheat, with more success on the fields with sparser growth. After the nosework twenty-one out of the forty-four teams competing had enough marks in hand going into the control round, which was well done by most, the biggest problem proving to be the agility, leaving ten dogs gaining WDex and two gaining WD only.
