Trial Managers Report
This was our club's 25th anniversary, everything went so well, a superb weekend. My grateful thanks to farmer and wife Bob and Jenny Fiddaman, their farm, barns and fields were ours for the duration of the trial. The joint party on the Saturday night was a great success, with helpers and competitors enjoying themselves.
A trial cannot run without a great team of judges, tracklayers, stewards and escorts. All were volunteers, giving their time and support freely, I really do appreciate this, thank you.
To Penny Bann who ran the base, did the scores and with Angela Porter sorted out the placings, rosettes etc. couldn't have done this without you, thank you.
Keith Jordan, our honorary President and a founder member of the club came from Lincoln to tracklay, put up signs and support the club. To BJV for his behind the scene support and help, thanks.
The weather was wonderful, it does make a difference. I will leave it to the judges to thank their helpers.
Once again thank you to everyone who helped to make this special trial a super success, this includes the competitors, most came back to base to say thank you and how much they had enjoyed the trial.
