Tracklayers: Tracey Park and Bill Richardson
Steward: Sharon Dunn
Thank you very much to the Society for the invitation to judge my first UD Nosework. Thank you to Betty and the entire team who worked non-stop at the base and in the kitchen. Excellent food, good humour and a fabulous atmosphere.
Many thanks to my tracklayers, Tracey and Bill, who paddled through huge puddles and many mud slicks without complaint. It was a pleasure to work with such experienced tracklayers who kept me right. Thank you to my steward, Sharon, who again kept me on my toes and was great company. To the competitors, who trudged through mountains of slippery mud and splashed through very large puddles, thank you for being such good sports and accepting my decisions.
All of the competitors completed the track and search square in awful conditions, so well done.

3rd Mr David Lumb with KENINE PHOENIX FLAME, CS, 180.5, NQ. Enthusiastic young dog who was keen to haul his handler round the track and made it look so easy. Another full mark search square. Well done, lovely team work. 88/20/35
