    Default Thunderstorms

    What is the rule of thumb for suspending action in an AKC hunt test in the case of thunderstorms?

    I once judged and a thunderstorm came up. The chairman insisted that we continue. Finally it got so bad that we pulled the birdboys and simply left. About 45 minutes later we were able to resume. Although no one was struck, the storm was way too close for my comfort.

    Is there a rule of thumb for this?

    I think common sense should come in to play. For me lightning we shut down, heavy rain that reduces visibility as well. If you don't feel comfortable in the weather then suspend it is my opinion.
