Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Many thanks for the privilege of watching 10 amazing TEAMS working together yesterday (March 5th) at West Buckland. Every handler showed calm, quiet sympathetic handling, even those at their first trial and very nervous.
My thanks to Pippa, Mary Ann and Carol(e) for keeping things running smoothly.
Congratulations to everyone.

When Pat asked to trials manage for with Steph as the judge I knew it would be a good day. West Buckland is a lovely venue with easy access from the M5. The weather was very kind to us even if it was a chilly in the wind. Mary Ann did a fantastic job as runner despite having a hip replaced and reliant on a crutch she was amazing , and Carol a first time scribe picked it up so quickly she was a real asset, neither of them had attended a scentwork Uk trial before and I’m glad to say are happy to help again, thank you ladies you were invaluable. Steph as expected did a wonderful job of putting the competitors at ease, for some it was their first trial, she set fair tests which are reflected in the marks and proudest moment for me she asked that my little Elsie was the white dog, she worked her socks off. Thank you to the competitors I hope you enjoyed your day.
