Working Trials Judges report - Jenny Hickey
Border Collie Club of Ireland
28th & 29th October 2017
I would like to thank BCCI for asking me to step in and take over Steve's appointment while he recovers from bypass surgery. To all the competitors who worked my test thank you.
A special thanks to all my helpers, in UD I had Jeff Poole and Bairbre Starkey laying tracks and Ed Dunne was my square steward. Everything was done exactly how I wanted and you were all good company. Jeff also stewarded my control round he was very clear with his instructions and put all competitors at ease.
In WD, Caroline Woods was my track layer and Frieda Baragwanath was my square steward again everything was done exactly how I wanted with plenty of laughs throughout the day. Tracy Robertson was my control /scribe steward.
The trial would not have gone ahead without the support of our farmer Nick Weir, huge thanks to him. To Judith Owens-Poole for the cakes and all the paperwork and Steve Fearon for manning the base and organising the food thank you both. Finally thank you to Caroline, Angela, Judith & Tracy for your help bringing the jumps in.

DUN LAOGHAIRE MONKSTOWN CANINE SOCIETY CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW – 6th August 2017
JUDGE – Judith Owens Poole
Steward (All classes) – Angela Higgins Scent Decoy Steward – Nadine Frei
Thank you to Dun Laoghaire Monkstown Canine Society for the invitation to judge at their show this year. Ger Philpott and all the team run a great show. A massive thank you to my stewards, Angela Higgins, you did a fantastic job in all classes and to Nadine Frei for doing decoy in Class C.
The weather was kinder than we had expected, it was quite windy but for the most part the rain held off until just before we finished.
Thank you also to the competitors, the dogs gave it their best and we saw some great work. Over the three classes all dogs were clear in stays.
