Thank you to Kenton for the invitation to judge the C.D. Stake: to Bob and Sue Carter, Jeannie in the kitchen, and everyone who helped in running the trial. The weather was extremely cold so we appreciated the competitors coming forward to work promptly. Many thanks to Mick Head for his help and support, i.e. search and slay steward and scribe for two days, I hope you enjoyed it. and look forward to seeing you competing with your Norman soon: and to the ever willing and cheerful Joan Watkins, my 'guide' and pole steward, thanks Joan. There were thirty-seven competitors, thirteen qualified, out of twelve different breeds competing. Stays were very good, as were the searches and retrieves, but only six had full mark jumps.
