Elmer VJP 2011

Thanks to:

Judges Nancy Bohs, Nick Starika, Kevin Snelbaker, Scott Shirey, Ana Barrios Sosa; Test Director Roger Smith; Test Coordinators Joe Lowry and Nancy Bohs; Joe Lowry for the use of his grounds, DelSea Beagle Club for the use of their grounds, John "Mac" McIntyre for bird wrangling assistance; and to all of the family, friends and spectators who leant a hand (and stick and foot) with the rabbit drives.

Except for the heat on Friday, great weather and terrific conditions - a scorable track for every ten minutes of driving throughout the weekend, with every dog getting three to five tracking opportunities, resulting in seven of the ten dogs receiving loud notes, and six dogs breaking the 70 point mark.
