Broomhill, Manitoba — The 2018 edition of the Broomhill trials began September 5 at Broomhill, Manitoba. The leadoff Manotiba Open Championship drew an entry of 25; the companion John S. Gates Memorial Derby has 14; the Broomhill Open All-Age also has 25 dogs, and the Open Derby, six.

Judges for the Championship are John Neely of Albany, Ga., and Greg Shepherd of Leesburg, Ga. Handler Robin Gates and the writer will judge the John S. Gates Derby; John Neely and I will also judge the Broomhill Open, and Robin Gates will join the writer for the concluding Open Derby.

We had an unexpected  and most welcome guest for the first day of the Championship when Jimmy Shaw came over from Gainsborough. Jimmy was an integral part of the major circuit Canadian all-age trials for many years back in the 1970s and ’80s.
