Event 18: Bothwell

Well, the Bothwell trial was a voyage of discovery…

We discovered that:

  • It was Lee Jamieson’s birthday AND he won the Open with Steele
  • Pip Flower is no shrinking violet at this game – placing in all three categories and taking out first in the Novice with the irrepressible Fang.
  • Cec Archer is one to watch – after just 12 months of trialing, she made the Open final on very tough sheep with a great run from Milo.
  • MGH Boots showed some style on just his second run out with Justin Pinner
  • Vicki Jones and Bernard McGlashan have better conversations with themselves than each other when setting up a course in bad weather
  • The sheep were bloody tough for all of us.
  • And for some, the gunshots were too much (not often you get to write that but it’s true, the Bothwell Gun Club had their monthly meet just across the road on the Sunday).
