    kudos to the judges for designing a challenging test that was certainly no "gimme" based on the number of "name" dogs that handled, but for also making great use of the time and available light..Great to see the 1st series start and end on the same day..cant wait to see what day 2 and the 3rd Series brings

    Hope it was a non issue! Go Slider!
    Would this not be a reason? Hopefully it doesn't occur again and the Handler knows the reason why, and correct.

    Anybody know which direction the birds are being thrown or did I miss something?

    The beginning is often scary, the end is usually sad, but fortunately, it's the middle that counts the most.

    I think this satellite view is reasonably close to what the test is. middle may be a bit shorter.

    It says it right in the blog: rocks are jagged and hills are steep.

    Or are you just looking to correct spelling?
