BSFA TRIAL MEETING HELD ON 13TH JUNE 2021

This meeting was not only the first held for over a year, due to Covid-19 restrictions, it was also the first held at the new venue. The need to adhere to the Covid-19 guidelines meant we were restricted to 30 people on the site. So it was decided that after the committee and helpers were accounted for, the remaining places would go to people who had entries and memberships in hand from the beginning of 2020. We didn't have enough places for everyone so there was an amount of "cherry picking" to make sure we had a good range of dogs to test the new field. The Committee decided that as this was a trial meeting in many respects, there would be no points available but there would be rosettes available for the highest scores.

The new field presented the Field Committee with problems in designing a safe running course for all breeds of dogs. It is uphill and undulating. We spent most of Saturday, trying out different designs which were tested by Whippets and Salukis. The final course of 500m was not ideal but tested the dogs, particularly on the uphill outrun.

Many thanks to Liz, Richard, Sue, Neil and Steve for all their hard work and support on Saturday, to Sue for lending us her Salukis to test the courses and to Steve for sharing his pasties with us ,and which kept us going on a very hot day.

Judges: Sandra Marcovecchio. Many thanks to Sandra for taking on the task of judging on her own.
