THE DRAWS

 

The draw will take place the day after the closing date, or on the following Monday if the closing date is a Friday or Saturday; they will be independently witnessed.  Anyone wishing to attend any or all of the draws, please notify me accordingly so I can advise you of the venue and time.

GENERAL

 

The Society cannot accept liability for any claim arising from or relating to the running of their Field Trials

 

Should circumstances so dictate, the Society, in consultation with the Judges,, may alter arrangements as necessary.  Such changes and the circumstances surrounding them will be notified to the Kennel Club at the earliest opportunity.  No modification will be made to the schedules except by permission of the Kennel Club followed by advertising in appropriate journals (should time permit) before the closing date of entry.

 

Anyone with a run and withdrawing within seven days of the Trial will forfeit the whole entry fee unless a veterinary certifiate is made available.  However, dogs that qualify out of Novice after the closing date will have their entry fee refunded in full.

 

On the day, please follow the red flag (for safety reasons).

 

No competitor may withdraw their dog or leave the trial ground without informing the Chief Steward; again this is for safety reasons.
