This was a walked up test in sugar beet held on field trial lines with all dogs having two retrieves on the first round, then one in the second round, before the final 8 dogs were taken through to the third round where they were tested on double cross retrieves. The day started off very still and warm until just before at the end of round 2 the skies became very black and they was an extremely heavy downpour that saw everyone retreat to the trees at the side of the field while the two judges took cover in a “hen house” – (partridge pen!) A good chance to have a judges huddle and check the books!?
Well done to the new working test secretary Carolyn Jenkins on her first appointment with the club and Thank You to the judges, hosts, helpers and to Skinners Pet Foods for their generous sponsorship.
