A big thank you to Di Martin for judging the L4 & L7 searches at the Finmere Trial yesterday. It is quite a challenge to judge two different levels on the same day, even more so when the judge is new to Scentwork UK. There isn’t only the different search content to master but also the different scoring method but Di didn’t allow this to faze her and took on the challenge very well. Di put out a very straight forward L4 and a L7 which was challenging yet pitched just at the correct level.
Also a big thank you to Claire Bennett who scribed and did running duties in L4 and stayed on to help in the L7 too, your help was much appreciated. Also to Ali Brannen who also helped in the L4, in the morning, worked her own dog in L7 and also stayed behind to help me clear everything away at the end of the day. Also to Lyn Bowers who after qualifying her dog in L4 then stayed on to scribe for the L7. Trials run so much more smoothly with such willing volunteers so thank you everyone.
And finally for our sporting competitors who took up the challenge and accepted the judge’s decisions irrespective of the outcome.
