British Sighthound Field Association

 
 
 

28th October 2018

We saw a huge amount of birds of prey on the drive from Somerset - kestrels, red kites and buzzards were the ones I was able to recognise. It was a nice surprise but I have no idea why there were so many. Perhaps this is what I miss when we don't have a meeting so late in the season. This meeting was shoe-horned in to recover some ground from the cancelled meetings this year. For a meeting so late in the season we were very lucky to have good weather. It was cold and breezy and the morning was dull with a token amount of rain but by the afternoon we were basking in glorious autumn sunshine. The Committee had plenty of help in the morning to set up and also to pack away in the afternoon for which we were very grateful. We had one injury in the afternoon when saluki Legolas caught the lure during his course and ended up with a cut leg. This was particularly unfortunate as he was leading the field in the morning. His owner reports that apart from sporting a bandage for a while he is otherwise fine. During the lunch break we had our, now traditional, end of season buffet lunch provided by the Committee which was a fine spread. Talking of the Committee, Liz Hales and Sue Snape were limping around on crutches and walking stick due to an operation on Liz' part and a collision with a saluki on Sue's. Hopefully they will be fit for next season.

 

 

Judges: Julia Cloke and Bob Hardy who bravely endured the cold to judge for us. As the judges stand on a scaffold platform in the middle of the field most of the day they do get the worst of the weather.

 

Lure Drivers: Chris Cloke and Diana Webber. Thank you to both of them, they also suffer the worst of the weather along with the judges.

 

Course Distance: 510 yards.

 

Ground Conditions: Firm with quite long grass.

 

Weather: Good. :-)

 

Entries: A total of 63 dogs were entered, a few absent on the day.
