Before the judges, exhibitors and gallery could depart the tracking trial headquarters for the tracking grounds, we had to extricate a stuck truck; hence we started the day with a weight-pull contest. We actually had good tracking weather light rain and cool. The second dog to track didn’t even notice the group of 6-8 deer that decided to depart the lower end of the site.

After the trial , all enjoyed a good lunch (courtesy of Gina Dowin) at the home of Roger and Susan Armstrong, the hosts of the trial.
