WORKING CERTIFICATE TESTS 2013
The WC test 2013 sponsored by the LRCM and RCLE have come and gone. The weather was bright and sunny with a slight breeze both days perfect for running dogs and for their handlers. Numbers of dogs entered were not as large as we had hoped, but for those that did participate, it was a very enjoyable weekend.
Special thanks go out to our judges who shared their expertise and time over the weekend; Bob Chrystal and Gord Rivest for the LRCM on Saturday, July 20th and
Cecil Epp and Fred Benjaminson for the RCLE on July 21st. The tests both days were fair but challenging and allowed handlers and their dogs to highlight their skills.
We would also like to acknowledge Gail Komadoski and Kevin Howarth for the use of their land. Being able to run on dogs on their property has been truly appreciated over the last 3 years.
Thanks also goes out to the WC committees from both clubs for their work over the weekend in setting up and taking down, preparing morning coffee and afternoon lunch, gunning, marshalling, completing the paperwork, taking photographs, and supporting the judges, handlers and dogs. Thank you to Susan Trigg, Suzanne and Derek Johnston, Carrie Frobisher, Gord and Michele Rivest, Blake Hasiuk, John Schepens, and Carolynne Pitura from the LRCM and Michelle and Gerrie Delaliaux, Mike and Pat Conchatre, Donna Haldorson, and Heather Evans from the RCLE.
Congratulations to the following handlers and their dogs on the earning of titles.
