Thank you to all our helpers and stewards who all did a great job. We held 4 tests today with 33 handlers and dogs turning out to support our club. To say we had adverse weather conditions today would be an understatement. It’s great to see the commitment from Judges helpers and handlers to bring forward our sport.
