Thanks go to the hosts, the National Trust, Nick Hoare, Tim White and Gary Thomas whose generosity made the day possible. Thanks also to our sponsors, Skinners Foods.
Especial thanks go to Chris Carpenter, our designated panel judge, and to all the other judges in whose capable hands I was happy to commend the handlers and their dogs. Thanks also to our dummy throwers. I was happy to continue the traditions set for the test at this ground established by Chris Carpenter over the years, and I was pleased to accept the stewardship baton passed by Chris to me.
Thanks to Sally, Heather, Sue who helped with registration, the catering, and the tallying of the scoresheets, and thanks to the other helpers who helped put up the shelters, and dismantle at the end.
I hope to see you all again at this venue next year. Thanks to everyone who made it so worthwhile and pleasing for me to host this event.
