This is my first season as field trial secretary and after making the second draw for the above Novice Trial it has been brought to my attention that I have broken Rule 4 in the LGS T&C’s. This states that (Members gaining a run in a novice stake will not be given preference in the draw for any further novice stakes run in the same season in such circumstances, retriever or spaniel nomination entries may be withdrawn by contacting the field trial secretary.) I have taken advice from the Kennel Club Working Dog Section who have told me that we have not broken any K C Regs, this is therefore an internal matter and should be discussed with the LGS Committee. I have contacted the committee and the decision has been made by all but two members that the draw should stand and those that are not eligible should go to the bottom of the draw.
