There are a few upcoming trials I'd like to go watch, but I haven't been able to find out what times they start and finish. (Did find dates and directions: http://home.earthlink.net/~sjvbca/events.html ) I emailed the contact listed, but hadn't yet gotten a reply, so thought I would check here if anyone knew. It's the one on the 28th of this month.

 

While I'm at it, anyone going to this one or Point Pleasant SDT( Nov 9-11, - Elk Grove, CA) or Thompson Ranch Sheepdog Trial, (Nov 16-18 Auburn, CA) (times also unknown to me!) - would love to meet up!

I entered the co-trial being held that weekend (Kurajong) but will probably be at Dunigan though not running.

 

I entered Point Pleasant and am sending my entry for Auburn tomorrow. If you come, you can see me and Fly crash and burn in our first Open trials.

Can't tell you about the 28th trial. But if you email folks at Pt Pleasant you will get a quick responce from them. I am going to be scribing there as they do not have a P/N class for me to enter. That is a trial you should try and watch--should be good. I believe it starts at 9 am, but email to be sure. I am going to check in before the date just to make sure I am not late! I am entering Thompson Ranch today. Maybe we from this board can meet each other there? I will ( hopefully) get into P/N and my dog is Lyn, a rather small smooth coat tri color female.

Lens recommendations? A long fast zoom lens (to at least 300mm or thereabouts) with good autofocus. I don't have one, but I make do. I have a slow 55-200mm zoom and in my opinion it is too short. The autofocus is OK, and it's fast enough for bright daylight, which most sheepdog trial photos are taken in. But I wish it were longer, and the fact that I don't have a longer lens is the reason why I take very few close-ups of dogs.

 

Of course, working around the equipment you have can do interesting things for your style (mine is more "photojournalistic" than "dog portrait" because I am more or less forced to do the former given my equipment), but all things being equal I'd rather have a longer lens.
