NWLRC Open Working Test 2011 Results

Following on from the first Test, Sunday dawned with heavy cloud and rain with a unpromising forecast. The land at Pinewood being used with kind permission of United Utilities and sponsored by Skinners.

Although a full card of 24, only 18 arrived to face the Judges of Heather Bradley, Jayne Coley, Alan Schofield and Mark Demaine and was run on Field Trials lines with eliminating faults standing.

As the first line of 4 started off, the heavens opened and the rain came being blown sideways by the wind. By the third test only 9 dogs remained and this test removed another 3. The final drive resulted in the following placings:

1st Annette Clarke running Garronpoint Liffy
2nd Polly Dunckley running Biney Bob of Smithsteads
3rd Judith White running FTCh Blackfoot Scout of Minstead
4th Chris Dinsdale running Spinnerbeck Wagtail

Certificates of Merit were awarded to:
Jimmy Swindlehurst running FTCh Adoraden Quinn
Judith White running Labdom Lewis of Minstead

The day was again photographed by Andy Biggar, the results are on his website and available to purchase.
