Booneville, Ark. — For those who have never organized a field trial, it is hard to appreciate everything that must be done in preparation for a regional field trial, much less the Nationals.

Obtaining approvals from the sanctioning organizations; finding judges, a reporter and marshals; obtaining birds, trophies and ribbons; managing finances, entries, and the running; arranging for meals and snacks- and the list goes on.

The COVID-19 pandemic further complicated this year’s event with social distancing, hand sanitizers, and face masks. Health problems and quarantines required many last minute judging changes including one on the night before the start of this year’s Championship.

Fortunately, Allison Bell, a well-qualified judge in her own right, accompanied her husband Jarrett for his judging assignment in Booneville. Little did she know that instead of riding her young horses in the gallery for the week that she would be riding them up front with Jarrett to evaluate dogs competing in this year’s Championship.

Steve Ralph and Kent Patterson, this year’s field trial secretary and ABC 1st vice-president, respectively, as well as their crew of helpers should be commended for putting on this year’s event.

In addition to Steve and Kent, special thanks must also go to others who collectively, helped make this year’s Championship a great success. Richard Beaver served as stakes manager (and happily no new landmarks were named in his honor). Dr. Robert Rankin was the course marshal and Bret Lindback served as gallery marshal coordinator.

Of course, their job was easy again this year mainly because this reporter was granted special privileges to ride up front near the judges.

Linda Thomas, Rocky Lindback and Judi Tipton made sure we had coffee, water, snacks and homemade treats. Most importantly, Joe Gower picked up the donuts for the dog wagon each morning. Bill Hancock served as auctioneer for the Calcutta and helped coordinate upkeep and repairs on the ABC property. Donna Janulis relieved Kent from his responsibility as hospitality host and Mary Jo Trimble guarded the roads to help ensure the safety of our dogs on course.

Judi Tipton and her crew followed COVID-19 guidelines while preparing and serving three meals a day in the clubhouse which was greatly appreciated, especially by those who did not want to travel for meals or provide their own food.

Purina donated small pouches of Pro Plan Sport dog food for the entrants as well as large bags for the winners. Garmin donated a Pro 550 advanced training system for the champion, and The Saddle Guy built an engraved saddle for the champion. These fine sponsors manufacture quality products known throughout the field trial community as products that we all use in training our dogs. Additionally, Purina and Garmin sponsor the annual “Dog of the Year” Awards for all-age and shooting dogs.

The city of Booneville generously provides a military Humvee along with a driver to pull the dog wagon. Fortunately, Robert Smith was able to resume his driving duties this year. Ed Janulis, ABC president, filled in a few times when Robert was unavailable.

Since 1987, the ABC National All-Age Championships have been held at the J. Perry Mikles Blue Mountain Wildlife Demonstration Area in Booneville, Ark. Brian Enfield, Brad Wells, and Clyde “Red” Bailey had the facilities and grounds in excellent condition. There was enough mowing in the heavy cover on courses 1 and 3 to allow an all-age dog to show to the front from time to time and to shine running the edges yet more than enough cover to also hold birds. Due to recent flooding, the cover was thinner than usual on course No. 2.

More than 3,500 birds had been pre-released by numerous field trial associations including the ABC before the start of this year’s Open All-Age Championship and opportunities to find birds were abundant. Many coveys were pointed multiple times in the same location throughout the trial. As evidenced in “The Running”, these grounds provide many challenges for both dogs and the handlers. Treelines, feed strips, and old roads can take dogs in multiple directions and if the wrong path is chosen, the retreival unit is frequently returned to the handler. Water-logged courses added to the challenges of running dogs this year.

Our judging panel was composed of the husband and wife team of Allison and Jarrett Bell from Troy, Mo. Both have been actively involved in breeding, training and campaigning Vizsla field trial dogs for the last several years. Jarrett and Allison have judged many championships and regional field trials and were looking for a dog that ran far to the front, stayed on the edges, hunted hard, pointed with style, and finished strong.

The judges refused to chase the handlers and kept a consistent pace for the entire trial. Sixty-two dogs were entered and 61 went to the line. Impressively,  ten different professional trainers/handlers had entered dogs.

The judges were asked to post dogs that they would place and to keep only the top four dogs posted (in no specific order) as the Championship proceeded. It wasn’t until the last brace of the stake did the judges observe the all-age performance they were hoping to see. Many dogs with otherwise solid performances paid a heavy price for a single flaw and many perennial winners came to the line but had difficult times handling these challenging grounds.

THE WINNERS

The new champion is Routabout All In (Tommy Tracy, Jr.). The champion ran in the only brace on the last day of the event.

“Al” is a six-year-old white and orange male out of Maxwell’s Outer Limit and Cedar Valley Lily and is owned Bo Ackerman of Clermont, Ga. Al was released at the start of course No. 1. Throughout the hour, Al exhibited excellent application, good range and handled well.

Al’s first find came at 8 on the right side of an island of trees about halfway to the Barking Dog House. Tommy flushed a covey of quail with all in order. Al had a second find at 16 to the right of the path as we approached Lick Creek. Al took the far left edge in the last section of the “S” fields leading to the chute toward the Double Gates. He was rewarded with another covey find at 30 at the end of these fields and a single at 41 in the chute just before the Double Gates confirming that Al can find birds and also point them with excellent style.

There was some confusion among members of the gallery concerning Al’s finish. After heading toward the bridge from the Double Gates, Al took the far left edge along the river and showed to the front at the bridge at the end of course No. 1. With time remaining, handlers were instructed to take their dogs back toward the Double Gates. Al was then seen motoring fast and hard to the front in the trees on the right side of the fields along the edge the river. After time, Al was spotted by the judges far to the front in the trees along the road near the Double Gates.

It took 31 braces to see what they were looking for and this finish played a critical role in naming Al this year’s National Champion.

Runner-up champion was M K’s Magnificent Bandito (Scott Johnson). "Chico" is an eleven-year-old male out of Tee Bone and Chief’s Nubbin’s My Lil Lady and is owned by Bill and Mary Lynn Oliver from Eureka, Kan.

"Chico" is no stranger to the winners' circle and ran in brace No. 14 with Ru Jems Last Penny (see below) which broke away at the beginning of course No. 2. These two seniors were highly competitive. Although neither dog exhibited extreme range, both exhibited excellent application and each of their performances were enhanced by the other’s.

Chico didn’t waste any time getting started. He took the left edge of the Bowling Alley and slammed on the brakes along the trees at the 8-minute mark. Scott flushed birds with all in order. At 23 Chico went on point in the trees at the end of the fields after the Old 109 Bridge and again in the trees just before we turned into the Fish Hook at 28. After completing the Fish Hook, Chico rimmed the right edge of Parrish Field where he had a divided find at 49 and another at 54 after completing the cast along Old 109. Chico also backed Penny at 32. The strong finish after entering Parrish Field played a large role in Chico’s placement.

CHALLENGING THE WINNERS

Ru Jem's Last Penny (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) was sired by Trademark’s ATM out of Red Bud Zipper and owned by Jerry McGee of Steward, Ill. Both the sire and dam were owned by the late Jim and late Janet Chase. They would have been so proud to see the results of breeding this perennial winner.

As mentioned above, Penny was braced with the runner-up. At 8 Penny was credited with a stop to flush in the trees on the right side of the Bowling Alley and backed Chico at 28 just before we entered the Fish Hook. Penny then went on to show her bird finding talents where she had a find at 32 in the trees just before turning right into the Fish Hook and another at 40 in the island of trees on the left side of the road in the Fish Hook. This later find required two relocations before Tommy could produce a bird. Like her bracemate, Penny rimmed the right edge of Parrish Field, had divided finds at 49 and another at 54 and finished strong after crossing Old 109.

Piney Run Hilltop Blew (Kent Patterson) is a three and a half-year-old male out of Piney Run Chalk and Piney Run Chicklet and is owned by Kent Patterson of Franklin, Tenn. Blew ran in brace No. 4, the first brace of the first afternoon.

Blew didn’t waste any time getting started when he was found standing with excellent style in the right edge 5 minutes after the breakaway. Birds were flushed with all in order. Blew showed several times to the front in the heavy cover at the start of Course 1 and had another find at 26 in the fields after crossing Lick Creek. After an unproductive at 36, Blew went through the chute toward the Double Gates and had a nice limb find at 42 in the tree line in the first field after the Double Gates. Blew finished strong to the front but a single come from behind during his hour factored into the judges’ final evaluation.

Arrow’s Tequila Rustler (Richard Beaver) is a seven-year-old male out of Beaver’s Straight Arrow and Runner’s Tequila Rose and is owned by Sandy Becker of Billings, Mont. Rusty ran in the last brace of the Championship along with this year’s winner.

Rusty put on a strong forward race with nice application. After reaching the end of Course 1, Rusty was directed back toward the Double Gates to complete the remaining time of his hour. Rusty hugged the right edge along the river and had plenty left to finish his hour strong to the front. Rusty had one piece of solid bird work at 33.

THE RUNNING

Day 1, brace No. 1: Piney Run Jake (Kent Patterson) and Turning Points Shenanigans (Bob Burchett). Jake fought through the heavy cover on the first part of course No. 1 and had a divided find with Shandi at 12 in thick briars about halfway to Lick Creek. Jake was next found standing in the tall grass in the far corner of the field as the course turned toward the Barking Dog House. Kent flushed and fired with all in order. Jake motored to the front after crossing Lick Creek. He took the right edge through the middle section of the “S” fields and looked nice as he rimmed the large field below the building on top of the hill. Unfortunately, this perennial winner was not seen after this impressive cast. Shandi made a nice cast in the last section of the “S” fields and had another find at 45 just before the Double Gates but overall, her run was not going to get it done.

M K’s My Lil Ammo (Scott Johnson) and Brendi Brooks Cowboy Up (Ray Trimble) were released at the start of course No. 2. B B was forward, handled well, but worked only at modest range. She had a find at 19 in the trees near the Fish Hook. She was again found standing at 34 in the trees at the end of the Fish Hook but Scott was unable to produce birds, BB given an unproductive. BB looked nice rimming Parrish Field but put up birds after crossing Old 109 and her day was done. Another year for 94-year-old Ray Trimble at Booneville. What more can I say? Tuff backed BB at 19 and had a find at 34 at the end of the Fish Hook. He had another find at 49 to the right of the cut through in the first field after crossing Old 109. Although Tuff was posted on Day 1, his ground game was not sufficient to keep him on the board for the duration of this year’s Championship.

Spanish Corral’s Sonny Patch (Joe Gower) and Sniksoh Little Diamond (Scott Johnson) were released at the start of course No 3. Patch went forward on the right side of the course and was found standing in the trees at 10. Joe flushed a small covey and all was well. However, Patch never made the turn toward Mario’s Hill; Joe called for the retrieval device at 25. Kate was making some nice moves early but shortened up and went into hunting mode as her hour went on. She had finds at 28, 37, and 51 after crossing Lick Creek and the other two in tall grass between the trees and the road.

Hehi’s Slim Chipley (Bob Burchett) and Piney Run Hilltop Blew (Kent Patterson). The first brace of the afternoon had the gallery watching. Blew’s performance was described above. Slim was found standing at 21 in the trees just before we turned toward the Barking Dog House. After crossing Lick Creek, Slim made some nice moves and had another find in the last tree line in the final section of the “S” fields. Slim took the left edge in fields after the Double Gates. However, he got to the “end” of Course 1 at 50 and didn’t have enough left for a strong finish as the handlers were told to take their dogs back toward the Double Gates.

Wild Wild Willie (Ed Tillson) and Farm Girl Pearl (Bob Burchett) were released at the start of course No. 2. Willie, the defending champion, got off to a great start when he rimmed the breakaway fields on the right side of the road and was rewarded with a find at the 6-minute mark. Willie continued with a strong, forward race but put up birds on the right edge of Parrish Field to bring an early end to his day. Pearl was not in her usual form today. Although she had two finds and finished her hour, her ground race was disappointing and she was not going to challenge any of the competitors.

Brace No. 6: J J’s Levi the Lionheart (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) and Son Yoti’s Master Of Illusions (Paul Doiron) broke away at the start of course No. 3. Levi went on point at the 14-minute mark just before we got to Mario’s Hill. Tommy flushed and fired with all in order. However, Levi ran into problems at 25 and his day was done. Magic was seen from time to time in the heavy cover at the beginning of course No. 3. He was credited with a stop to flush on a covey at 31 but thereafter, he shortened up, went into hunting mode, and was picked up early.

Day 1 Dogs on the Board: ï Hehi’s Slim Chipley (Bob Burchett); Piney Run Hilltop Blew (Kent Patterson), and Brendi Brooks Cowboy Up (Ray Trimble).

Day 2, brace No. 7: Sigbrit’s Not In Kansas Anymore (Scott Johnson) and Sundance Kid’s Rule Breaker (Frank Campbell). The temperature turned cold after raining all night. Bud was scratched. Doti ran as a bye. This three-year-old had a difficult time establishing a forward pattern with her ground race. She had a find at 16 in the last field before turning toward the Barking Dog House and another in the last section of the “S” fields.

Sligo Sam (Ben Lorenson) and Godfather’s F.N. Rockstar (Steve Chang). Sam made some nice moves, especially to the island of trees before the Fish Hook and in Parrish Field, but overall his run was inconsistent. He ended his hour without any birds. Rocky was impressing the judges. He rimmed the last field in the Fish Hook and had first class style on his finds at 8, 32 and 42. However, he pooped out at the end of his hour which moved him off the leader board as the competition continued on.

A N J’s Ohio Hellion (Bob Burchett) and T Copper Buckaroo (Paul Doiron) were turned loose at the start of course No. 3. Hank never made the turn toward Mario’s Hill but eventually showed up to the front, without his handler, where his day ended when he failed to back his bracemate. Buck hunted at short range, had a find at 19, but unproductives at 13, 24, and 30 brought an early end to his day.

Shailorville’s Gunner (Ben Lorenson) and High Hopes Jac’s Original Spice (Chad Holman). The entire afternoon was tough on the dogs. Gunner was found standing with a limb find at 30. Ben flushed a covey of birds with all in order. Gunner had another covey find at 38 but disappeared shortly thereafter. Spice made some nice moves but had a difficult time connecting them together. She had finds at 33 and 48.

Highpoint Spike’s Southern Gal (Ben Kuykendal) and Ace’s One Eyed Jack (Chad Holman). Ellie had a difficult time establishing her ground race and was lost at 45 without any birds. Jackson had a non-productive at 10 and covey finds at the 25- and 29-minute marks. His run was not pleasing his handler and he was picked up at 48.

Hoochie Coochie Man (Ed Tillson) and JWB Arctic Cat (Tom Tracy). "Karl" was unable to stay to the front or establish a ground race and was picked up at 40. "Kimber" made a nice move to the front and was rewarded with a find at 12. However, she was lost shortly thereafter and her day was done early.

Day 2, Dogs on the Board: Hehi’s Slim Chipley (Bob Burchett), Piney Run Hilltop Blew (Kent Patterson), Godfather’s F.N. Rockstar (Steve Chang) and High Hopes Jac’s Original Spice (Chad Holman).

Day 3, brace No. 13: Just Call Me Lucky Ned Pepper (Frank Campbell) and Godfather’s Red Feather Gunslinger (Steve Chang). Lucky Ned had a find at 27 in an island of trees in the middle section of the “S” Fields and another at 35. His scout called point two other times but Lucky Ned was moving again before the judge and handler arrived. Lucky Ned usually has good application but his ground race was only fair this time around. The judge described Gunnar as directionally challenged.

Ru Jems Last Penny (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) and M K’s Magnificent Bandito (Scott Johnson). Performances were described above.

Carpe Diem (David Lincoln) and Black Creek Uhaul (Chad Holman). Carp was having a tough time today. He frequently came from behind and then went missing till we got to the Pavilion Field where Dave elected to pick him up at 25. Johnny came from behind several times and Chad elected to also pick him up at 25. Neither dog had bird work.

Sniksoh Hank’s Gypsy Cruise (Bob Burchett) and Maxwell’s Prickly Pete (Tommy Tracy, Jr.). Bob directed Cruise around the course with a tight handle. Cruise had a find at 35 in the last tree line at the end of the “S” Fields” but a self-relocation ended his day early. Pete was doing a really nice job. He had a find at 13 just before the turn toward the Barking Dog House. After crossing Lick Creek, Pete went to the far edge of the first field and at 18 was rewarded with another find. Pete took the right edge of the middle section of the “S” fields and at 26 had his third find in the trees in the far corner of the field. Unfortunately, Pete was not seen after this last find and Tommy called for the retrieval device at 35.

Blew Me Away (Paul Doiron) and Driving Miss Daisy II (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) were released at the Double Gates. After crossing the bridge onto course No. 2, both dogs turned left. Daisee never showed to the front. Scout reported that she was having a pretty good time just where she was and Daisee felt there was no need to get Tommy involved. Unlike Daisee, Bud showed to the front in the Bowling Alley. Later he had a nice covey find in the trees in the island in the Fish Hook at 38. However, the current National Amateur All-Age Champion was not getting it done on the ground this time around.

Scout Upland Trailblazer (Ed Tillson) and Knine Finale’s Way To Go (Paul Doiron) were released at the start of course No. 3. Scout made some moves to the front but had a long absence near the turn toward Mario’s Hill. After rejoining his handler, Scout was found standing on a limb find at 40 where Tillson flushed a huge covey. Allie pointed with excellent style in the island of trees in the breakaway field at the 1- minute mark. However, Paul was unable to produce birds and Allie was given a non-productive. At 42 a covey of quail flew out of the tall grass where Allie was last seen. Paul rode over, found Allie standing, and was able to flush a single with all in order. Allie had another covey find at 52. Overall, Allie’s ground race was inconsistent and a second non-productive at 59 minute sealed her fate.

Day 3 Dogs on the Board: ï Piney Run Hilltop Blew (Kent Patterson), Godfather’s F N  Rockstar (Steve Chang), Ru Jem’s “Last” Penny (Tommy Tracy, Jr.), and M K’s Magnificent Bandito (Scott Johnson).

Day 4, brace No. 19: Treasure States Toby Mac Daddy (Ed Tillson) and WW’s Miss Wendy Peffercorn (Tommy Tracy, Jr.). Wendee had a difficult time establishing a consistent ground race. She had a find at 15 in the cedar trees as we turned toward the Barking Dog House and another in the last treeline in the “S” Fields. Toby, Toby, Toodaloo Toby. This reporter was the scribe for the ABC 2020 Pheasant, Quail, and National Open All-Age Championships. You were lost after going over the first sand hill in the Pheasant. You took off like a bat out of hell in the Quail but were not seen thereafter. Finally, you were lost shortly after the breakaway this year in Booneville. Where do you go when Ed releases you at the breakaway?

Molly Mae Alexander (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) and Waypoint Chancey Big White Cooper (Kyle Merrill) took the right edge in the first field after they were turned loose at the start of Course No. 2 and had a divided find at the 2-minute mark. After birds were flushed, Molly took a few steps and more birds took to the air and she took the walk of shame back to the dog wagon. Big White continued on but had a difficult time staying to the front. Kyle called point at the 33-minute mark. However, Big White put up birds before his handler arrived and he joined Molly in the dog wagon.

Rusty Ridge Where U Been (Paul Doiron) and Black Creek Whizki Skip (Chad Holman) were off just before Parrish Field. Skip didn’t waste any time getting started when he went on point at the 30 second mark in the trees to the right of the path. As Chad flushed birds, Skip took a few small steps and was ordered up to end his day as fast as it started. Oh, what could have been for Been. He was doing a very nice job on the ground; he was forward on the correct side of the tree lines and edges and overall had beautiful application. Unfortunately, Been went missing as we approached the last field on course No. 2. Paul continued across the bridge and onto Course No. 3 but Been never reappeared and the tracker was returned to the handler.

Dynamitemakeit (Paul Doiron) and Sniksoh Hanks Hatch (Bob Burchett). The weather was beautiful as we broke away on course No. 1 first thing in the afternoon. This brought participants out of their trailers and onto their horses in the gallery. Unfortunately, dogs in this brace failed to impress the gallery or their handlers and Bob and Paul, respectively, picked up their dogs at 22 and 30.

Alar’s Dirty Dancer (Ed Tillson) and Castaway Wilson (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) were turned loose in the third section of the “S” Fields. Dani was fast, forward, in the right places, hunting the outer limits of the course without help from her scout and was impressing the judges. She took the left edge of the field after the Double Gates and showed to front at the bridge. When we arrived at the Bowling Alley at 30, Mr. Tillson elected to pick her up. Wilson was having a hard time staying to the front and Tommy elected to pick him up when we got to the bridge at the end of course No. 1.

I’m Your Man (Ben Lorenson) and Almaden’s Under Lock and Key (Ed Tillson) were released in the Bowling Alley and worked at close range for the hour. Gus had a covey find at 19 in the tall grass on the left side of the road in the Fish Hook, an unproductive in the right edge of Parrish Field, and a small covey at 50 in the last treeline on course No. 2. Oudi had an unproductive at 19 on the right side of the road in the Fish Hook and a hawk kill at 39 after completing Parrish Field and crossing Old 109. Oudi was not seen thereafter and Tillson called for his retrieval device at 55.

Day 4 No new dogs on the Board.

Day 5, brace No. 25: Spanish Corral’s Big Iron (Joe Gower) and Roustabout Lil Pumpkin (Paul Rosevear). Colt incurred a cut on his ear shortly after the breakaway. Colt seemed to be doing OK with his injury but we weren’t sure about Joe. Colt and Joe continued on but Colt’s run was inconsistent and Joe elected to pick him up before we got to the Double Gates. Pumpkin didn’t get the memo that today she was running in the National All-Age Championship. Neither dog had bird work during their 40 minutes on the ground.

Willie Makeit (Scott Johnson) and CVK Spartan King (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) were released at the Double Gates. After crossing the bridge onto course No. 2, Leo took the left edge of the first field and pointed with Willie backing. Tommy was unable to flush birds, Leo was given an unproductive. Willie made a nice cast around the right edge of the last field before entering the Bowling Alley while Leo continued forward rimming the left edge of the Bowling Alley where he was found standing at the 22. As the handler arrived, Leo was seen under birds and his day was done. As Leo was led back to the dog wagon, Willie was 100 yards ahead with Scott off his horse. The judges asked him if Willie put up Leo’s birds and Scott replied that he’s not "pleading guilty" but Willie is staying on the end of the check cord.

M'n M’s Grouse Gunning Gracie (Kyle Merrill) and Tequila Scorcher (Ed Tillson). A cold rain started as dogs were released for the last brace of the day and this seemed to negatively affect their performances. Gracie was out of control the entire time she was on the ground. Lincoln made nice casts in Parrish Field and in the corn field at the end of  course No. 2, but overall he lacked his usual drive, speed and range that frequently takes him to the winners' circle. Tillson elected to pick him up at 48. Neither dog had bird contact during their time on the ground.

Sonny’s Hot Summer Breeze (Paul Doiron) and Jac’s Ray Of Sunshine (Chad Holman). Breezy was working at gun dog range and was frequently behind. He had one find at 24  but unfortunately it was to the rear. Paul elected to pick him up at 30. Ray was seen standing at 14 by an island of trees on the left side of the path before the turn toward the Barking Dog House. Birds were seen in the air as Ray was in the area and his day was done.

Crescent City Girl (Ed Tillson) and Kashmir (Tommy Tracy, Jr.) were away in the middle section of the “S” Fields as a cold rain started to fall. Nola was making some nice moves and went on point at 11 in the treeline at the end of the “S” Fields but the cold put a damper on her performance. Kashmir has been making a name for himself this fall but was not getting it done today. Both handlers elected to pick up at 30.

S R’s Blew By Typhoon (Paul Doiron) and Gun Creek Gangster (Chad Holman) were released at the start of course No. 2. Ty immediately went to work when he took the right edge of the first field and pointed at 2. Paul flushed a huge covey, with birds exploding in all directions from around Ty. Ty never made it into the Bowling Alley but showed up 20 minutes later as we entered Parrish Field before going toward the Fish Hook. Paul’s persistence paid off because Ty went on to finish strong with additional finds at 35 in the Fish Hook, 43 minutes in the trees on the right just before entering Parrish Field, and at 57 after crossing Old 109. Doc was not putting on an all-age performance and had problems with birds to end his day at 25.

Day 5 Dogs on the Board: Piney Run Hilltop Blew (Kent Patterson), Ru Jem’s Last Penny (Tommy Tracy, Jr.),  M K’s Magnificent Bandito (Scott Johnson) and S R’s Blew By Typhoon (Paul Doiron).

Day 6, brace No. 31: Arrow’s Tequila Rustler (Richard Beaver) and Roustabout All In (Tommy Tracy, Jr.). Both performances were described above.
