There were again 6 tests for all classes including the puppies as there were fewer entries. Robert very kindly again set 6 cunning challenging tests which had varying terrain in very close proximity. Open and Novice this year had all doubles half seen and half blinds which were required to be picked in varying orders. There was all types of ground used today, open fields, hills woods .banks, reeds rides in woods. 1 of the open tests was a seen double left and right, but first they were required to pick a blind between then all on a woodland bank. 2 blinds among some fallen trees and brash also caused a few problems. Handlers had to get their dogs well back to enable the dogs to wind the dummies as the wind was blowing away from the handler towards the dummies. The last test for all classes was a walk up.
