SWGRC WORKING TESTS

Sunday 19th May 2019

Bineham City Farm, Knole, Langport

With kind invitation from Ron, Trish and Ed Coombes.

We ventured onto a new ground this year suggested to me by Andrew England, and what a super venue it turned out to be. Bineham City Farm with our hosts Ron, Trish and Ed Coombes provided us with a lovely variety of test sites, beautiful views and an abundance of wildlife to share our day. I can’t thank the Coombes family enough for their time and effort in bending over backwards to better the ground for us.

Preparation for the tests, as always, was a little stressful with three visits to Bineham beforehand but with my extra right-hand helpers on the day we set up in good time and waited to receive judges and a very good entry of competitors. May I take this opportunity to sincerely thank Jackie Bissell, Sarah Bell, Helen Hanrahan, Sheenagh Gebhard and Andrew England for going that extra mile for me yet again.

After the judges, Tim Shipp, Haydn Wilmott, Mary Palk and Lucy Jenkins were fed and watered, we did a quick tour of the ground and the tests (again thank you to my friendly test setting advisors) before the brief ‘briefing’ and start of the day around 9.30am. With the five class categories running concurrently, the judges, as always have their memory cells taxed as they have to execute three or four differing tests at their station. My crib cards however do help, I think!

My dummy throwers/marshals have, in the majority been with me for three years and cannot be faulted. I acquired a few new ladies this year (one being a complete beginner) who boosted the team and executed their duties like old pros – I am sincerely indebted to these people who are the backbone of our working tests and only hope ‘my team’ will be around for me next year and the for the Interclub in 2021. (Pretty please)!

The weather was absolutely spot on for both the dogs and the tests, and although it did a become a little warm around noon, it soon clouded over and we were mostly all cooled off by presentation time. Indeed, the aftermath of clearing up and packing away was completed with only about 5 minutes to spare before the first rain drops started to fall.

I believe the both day and venue were enjoyed by all (I did receive many positive comments), my only regret is that my own shortcoming, regarding a couple of scores, left a blip at the end of what was otherwise a very successful day. Again, I apologise sincerely to those competitors that were affected by my ‘blip’.

Looking forward to seeing you all back next year and beyond.
