Well field trials are mostlly for country living people. City people come to the country to get away from the concret jungles of work. Country folks and most all men will take a leak on the other side of a trailer behind a tree, or at least hide what they got.
Now if you have nosey girls then that is on your plate. They need and should be aware of what country guys do when the have tp take a leak.
Meanel stuff here.
Enjoy the dogs running, and watch and learn, ask questions, and., become part of the clan if you want to play the game.
Find out what a good dog looks like so you will not be kennel blind, like most of us were when we started field trialing.
Just my 2 cents

: Hello Gary and Greg! I saw this message and
: felt it was important to respond. I will be
: very honest in what I have to say here. I am
: a younger trialer (18-24) and I have only
: been to trials in West Point, Goochland,
: Amelia, and Lancaster. I believe the reason
: younger people do not participate as much is
: because they feel alienated. Even I have
: felt that way at times at certain trials. I
: feel as though unless you are not one of the
: well known big guys then nobody really cares
: if you are there. With all of the trials I
: have been to I can honestly say that very
: few people ever come up and speak to me.
: Also, I hate to even put this on here but
: sometimes I feel as though some of the
: behavior I have seen at trials is highly
: inappropriate. When you have younger girls
: at a trial and all you see throughout the
: day is men going behind their trailers to
: take a leak you don't want your children
: there. That's not something anybody wants to
: see including myself. Again, I am not trying
: to cause trouble here but I'm just trying to
: give you a perspective of a younger member.
