Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Harold Latusek
Thankyou Marianne for inviting me along to Judge this level 4 trial at Thurliegh,with the lovely Jeni Pirie,my co judge on the day.A big Thankyou to my scribe,Jane,who did an excellent job.
I was tasked with judging the exterior search and boxes and luggage.The weather was kind to us,no rain,but a nice little swirling breeze to contend with on the exterior and vehicle searches.A white dog was used prior to all searches commencing.

This was set up to the right of the building,with the breeze blowing towards the start cones.I placed the cloves scent inside an electric cable holder,siting this immediately front right of the area.The gun oil,I concealed inside a pair of vehicle jump leads,placing them to the left centre.The distraction scents,shampoo,I hid in a smoke alarm,placed in the centre and the almond oil scent was concealed in a wellington boot,to the far right.A 50% success rate,with 5 of the 10 teams correctly identifying both hidden scents.The remaining 5 finding only 1.Some lovely searching and handling shown by,Kate and Gylly,finding both in some 48 secs,closely followed by Belinda and Miage,58 secs and Lynda and Magic,74.Nice handling and patience shown by Steven,in keeping Elsa focussed and reaping the rewards,by going on to find both scents.

Boxes and Luggage
I placed out a mixture of some 14 boxes and bags in total.I hid the gun oil in a small box,placing this to the front right of the start line.The cloves I concealed in the zip of a haversack,placing this to the furthest away point,on the left.The distraction scents,shampoo,I hid inside a flat black bag to the far right of the search area,the almond oil was hidden in an upturned box,immediately to the front left of the start line.
7 of the 10 teams finding both in some very quick times.Excellent teamwork by Kelly and Zoe in some 47 secs,closely followed by Belinda and Miage,55 secs and Lynda and Magic,62 secs.Overall,I must say,the searching and the handling skills were of a very high standard
My congratulations go to the eventual rosette winners.1st.Belinda and Miage,100…2nd.Lynda and Magic,99.8….3rd.Kate and Gylly,99.7….4th.Kelly and Zoe,98.9.
I wish you all the very best in your future trials and hope to meet up with some,if not all of you,in the not to distant future.
