The Committee organise 9 trials each year and these are listed under DESS Trials


The Society is always pleased to welcome spectators to their trials. By joining the Society, you can receive future copies of the schedule, regular newsletters and help to support the Society please see Membership page for full details.

Occasionally, through no fault of our own, trials are cancelled, and it is impossible to notify competitors (unless pre-entered) and spectators, therefore it is advisable to check with the secretary beforehand.
