Level 2 & 6 competition at Gorsley on the 8th October 2022. Catherine Manfield manager kindly asked me to judge the level 2 & 6 trial. Level 2 For this trial I judged the Items & the Wall, Mary judged the Table and Chairs & the Boxes & Luggage. First, I did Items. I placed the scent in a log near the front and a tin near the rear. All teams worked really well with some extremely excellent searching. Second, I did the wall. I placed the first scent on the hinge on the patio doors, then the second scent on a wooden spar fixed to the wall. Again, the searching was of a high standard with some really fast times. I would like to congratulate the following 4 on being placed. 1st Juliette Smith with Gyp 2nd Helen Axe with Willow 3rd Vivien Waldron with Peri 4th Jill Taylor with Sid Well done to those that qualified. I would also like to congratulate all that took part for being a really fantastic bunch. I would also like to thank all those who helped and in particular Caroline my fantastic scribe. Level 6 For this trial I judged all 3 searches. There was some really excellent handling throughout the searches. Interior search. I put 6 scents around the room, 2 cloves, 2 gun & 2 truffles. Most handlers and dogs found the scents. In the exterior search I used 3 scents, 1 clove, 1 gun & 1 truffle. The weather for this search was warm with slight breeze. All teams performed excellently finding all 3 scents. For the second interior search, I put out 3 scents, 1 clove, 1 gun & 1 truffle. The handlers had to work hard and really needed to plan their search in a systematic way to complete in the 3 minutes allocated. Again, there was some excellent searching. I would like to congratulate the following four who were placed: 1st Mike Wright with Poppy 2nd Katie Rogers with Gylly 3rd Paula Davies with Bonnie Jazz 4th Bobbie Osborne with Bella ‘ Also, congratulations to those who qualified I would also like to congratulate all that took part for being such a fantastic bunch I fully enjoyed the day with you all.
