Hopefully your first chapter of 2018 is the beginning of your best year yet. As we are well on our way into this New Year I want to thank you for your support and encouragement during the purchase and transition of the website.  I know there’s comfort in what we know. It is natural and reassuring to resist putting ourselves in new situations.  With that I truly am grateful for the positive support I received from the Field Trial community. Additionally, I want to recognize Katie Goerecki for her outstanding assistance over the past 5 months.

Although the new site with all of its 179 published pages had to be stood up in a very short time period of 2 months (most website designs take 4-8). There were several items we had to postpone until we had time to get caught up.   For 2018 the web site development team and I are looking at:

  • Displaying field trial results in a week by week cumulative view
  • Adding PayPal for payments
  • Creating a placement reporting portal
  • Uploading multiple years of Hall of Fame information
  • Improving the quality of the Facebook Live streaming at the Nationals

As always, I’d like to take a moment to thank the advertisers who make it possible for us to offer this site as a free resource for you. Please check out our advertiser’s websites – and if you see them at a field trial, please let them know you saw them here!

If you have questions or suggestions, you can contact me at holly@essft.com or 515.205.3223. Please also be sure to like ESSFT English Springer Spaniel Field Trials on Facebook.  (Note:  If you are not on Facebook you can scroll through the feed on the website.  This will keep you up to date!)

See you in the field!
