John and I just wanted to thank everyone who helped make the trial so successful this year. Entries were up, the weather was great, and everyone had a fun time and we enjoyed meeting some new people.


Thank you to all of the handlers who came and ran their dogs, some of you came from quite a distance.


Thank you to Marvin McLeish for again letting us use the farm.


Thanks to Paul & Janet Henning for the loan of the handling system and doing whatever needs to be done. We could not put on a trial without all of your help. Mary Groh for all of the paperwork-entry taking, running orders-all of it. Alasdair MacRae for judging and Polly Matzinger for judging. Pearse Ward for being the course director, I think that on Saturday you were in two places at once.


And for all the people who helped with lunch, making coffee, scribing, spotting, helping at set out, helping set up the courses and take stuff down afterwards, Chuck Corbett & Mary Stoffel, Chris Ontiveros & my kids, Nick & Rissa, Tricia MacRae, Donna May, Marge Reinke, Jen Mark, Jean Bass, Lola Chaffin, Rose Anderson, Ronnie Bingham, Samantha Jones, Susane Hoffman, Marilyn Moyer, Synthia Joseph. Sorry if I've missed anyone.
