So Bon, are you agreeing that it is an exercise in futility to want to take part in the sport in any way if you are not rich or blessed by part of the country you can make your living in? Well, I'd say that pretty well puts the print to the page in the obituary of field trials. Surely there is some way to make it more inviting, not by dumbing down but getting more out of less space? I don't begin to claim to know the answer, but I sure would like to keep playing. Bet there are others too.
