Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Trial Manager’s Report
It was lovely to be back running a trial! We ran a Level 1 in the morning and a L3 in the afternoon. We kept it to small groups – two cohorts in L1 and just 7 in L3. Denise Pile did an excellent job of judging both levels for us – sometimes in rather damp conditions but she managed to stay cheerful and encouraging throughout the day. We had a tie for first place in Level 1 with two contestants on a perfect score and exactly the same time at under 1 minute for all the searches combined! During the day the Level 1s had to put up with some quite nasty rain showers and the Level 3s had drier but much windier weather!
Huge thanks to Denise for giving up her time to judge for us and to all our helpers. Terry did a great job keeping everything moving smoothly and we had several experienced scribes working with some new scribes for the future. Thanks also to our fabulous competitors staying happy despite the weather conditions. There were some amazing times for the searches and many great results. It certainly seemed that everyone and the dogs all enjoyed their day.
