When judging with Marvin Hoffman many years ago I picked up a couple of things I use to this day.

!st - Make good sketches of what is happening, don't worry about scoring - it will show quickly as you go through good sketches - the dog only gets so much lead on the sheet.

2nd - When you have finished setup make a list of each test & what you will need from the Field Trial committee for that test & give them a copy of all your needs for the tests plus any alternates if you would do something differently. Do not expect those people to read your mind, they will be part of your success in time management.

Beyond that the 1st bird hitting the ground at 8 AM & paying attention to what is happening with the working dog are always a must!
