    Hi Keith,

    for 90 make sure the person taking the day knows there stuff and has a dog to back it up with a demo, I have been involed with ngo and bds days and both have been a lot less money, with some very good and knowleadgeable people who have had dogs to give demo's.

    it's all very well someone stood there in frount of you telling you the way it done, but if they have dogs with them, to back them up, it makes it much more beliveable.

    Will have to talk to Mark to get funds to pay for Rudi's trip. It will depend a bit of we get a full house and where and when the course will be. Mark was talking about March.
    There should be no problem in getting somebody to lay a trail the day before and I'll bring some tracking shoes, hoofs and blood so that people can lay a trail themselves. Will also arrange for an HS. Practise is more fun than theory.
    Also have some DVD's that show you exactly how to lay a trail. Might use these when it rains.

    I send them to Mark. I also guess they are copy protected. Lastly they are in German but looking at the film only they are pretty comprehensible.

    One is called "Verweisen" by Borngraeber.
    The other "Der faehrtenschuh" also by Borngraeber
