A few seasons back I was at a field test in NH. At the Timber doodle club's grounds. A club member stopped by and observed a was wearing a tie. I remember because it was odd, I thought :? . Now a couple weeks ago I won Dr. Starkloff's book on EBay. I hope I didn't snipe it away from a RTF member. The first few pages are old photos from the 50's and early 60's field trials. More than a few men are wearing neck ties. Ever wear a tie to a trial? Fortunately for me it will never be an issue as I have no neck :lol: .
