Trial Manager and Judges Reports

thank you for inviting us to Judge Marianne.
We started the day with the Level 1, and WOW what a start. The standard was So high. Without exception these teams were fantastic.
It is always a joy to watch teams that work together so well. I had to remind myself several times that this Was only a level 1. These teams are going to be ones to watch going up through the Levels.
There was No beating Saatchi and Ruth today though. What a Team!
Thank you Nicky for scribing, I really appreciate you giving up your time to do this, when you are then competing in the afternoon.

A quick break, and then onto the Level 5
There seemed to be a few nerves in the 1st area. Teams seemed to spend alot of time re-tasking door frames and skirting boards, which then didnt give them enough time to work the whole area…. Unless you were Team Lola who found all 4 scents in about a minute and a half. Stunning
We had some lovely searching outside, 3 straightforward scents,
It was starting to get very cold, so I think everyone was pleased to have 5 to find in the nice warm hall. Everyone did very well here. It was lovely to see how each team worked the area, and there were some lovely results.

Hope to see you all again soon
