2019 BVKA Tracking Test results


Bell Vernon’s first tracking test was held on Sun. January 27, 2019.
Weather cooperated. Saturday was sunny. Judges and track
layers were able to get their jobs done without having to deal with the elements.                                                                                 Sunday was cooler, and a bit cloudy. Still there was no wind, rain, or ice.

There were 8 entries. Five of them passed

Huge thank you to Martha Roberson for all her work as Trial Secretary.                                                                                            She is creating a great resource notebook for future tests.

Jan Wesen was an invaluable help as Chief Track Layer, Hospitality, and information                                                                           resource to help us make it through our first test.                                                                                                                                 Of course, we also were able to use the fields at the Wesen farm for our tracks.

Sil Sanders and Francis Keays were wonderful judges. They helped us a great deal                                                                               with answering questions and judging dogs, all weekend.

Thank you to the many club members who volunteered. Each of you is greatly                                                                            appreciated in helping our first test to be a success.

Mike Kriegel
Test Chairman
