The first morning was misty and still, 31 dogs and handlers started off in a very mustard field. Steward of the beat and
Headkeeper John Stubbs kept the line in order. The new Secretary Philip Wainwright organised the dogs in and out
of line, by the end of day two, 9 woman qualified of 7 for the first time.
A bright sunny morning greeted all, worked in braken in the Old Deer Park under judges John Douglas, John Drury,
Richard Webb & Philip White saw the field reduced to 7 dogs for the third and final day. On a wet morning a complete
contrast to the previous days, dogs and handlers worked through to the final drive at Sandpit pool.
