Trial Manager Report

So many thanks to Val Saxby for judging our L8, giving us all fair but challenging searches, and to Jane Martin for her excellent and efficient scribing skills. Very much appreciated indeed. Upton Noble is a delightful, quiet village and the hall is deceptively large, with a variety of rooms, making it a fun place for searching for those elusive little pieces of sock! Although the carpark is ‘cosy’, it does mean that the competitors can all group for a good chat and natter ….. surely this is what scentwork is all about – having fun with our lovely dogs in like-minded company. A great way to spend a Sunday morning. Thank you all for coming to this lovely part of deepest Somerset.
