Delighted to be able to use this new venue which provided excellent facilities for the control ring as well as plenty of forest for the hauls.
Pleased to see the new venue attracted more entries from further afield probably due to being more accessible. A nice range of accommodation on site and locally also available to suit all requirements.
The weather was kind although very cold and a bit windy at times, but we have seen a lot worse at this time of year.
A nice range of passes across all levels and good to see younger dogs working their way up as well as the old hands. I look forward to being able to run tests at this venue in the future.
Thank you to everyone who travelled, judged, stewarded and generally helped out across the weekend.

Beautiful day at Whitemead Forest Park, super hospitality from all the team - lovely clean test area, making it easy for the dogs through the control and interesting areas for the haul
Three teams entered, of which 1 was a brace, all 3 teams achieved beautiful, clean passes, we look forward to seeing them in Level 2.
We would like to thank the SNC & WNAG for inviting us to judge & making it such a pleasant experience. A big thankyou to our stewards & test manager for their help

Our thanks to SNC for inviting us to judge at this brilliant new venue. The weather was perfect for the one entry for this level. It was obvious that this was an experienced dog and handler with very few errors. It was a pleasure to watch this team in action.

Our thanks to the SNC for inviting us to judge at this new venue.
Our single entry has attempted this Level several times in the past, which was obvious in the control section and in the haul. They successfully overcame their nemesis by successfully completing the three minute out of sight down stay to pass a beautiful test.
